Chapter Seven - The Love of a True Husband and a True Wife
Section 1. The Original Relationship of Husband and Wife

God exists in the dual characteristics of plus and minus. When this is manifested as a plus, it is Adam, and when it is manifested as a minus, it is Eve. (32-238, 1970.7.19)

The one son and one daughter are a son and daughter who have appeared as substantial object partners of the invisible God. As substantial object partners, the man represents God's plus characteristics, and the woman represents God's minus characteristics. According to the principle of creation, the internal nature of God is divided into two characteristics. God harmonizes the two characteristics, and re-unites them in a form that resembles His original internal nature.

Man and woman each resemble one characteristic of God when they are born. If once, the union of one son and one daughter is the unification of God's plus and minus characteristics. In other words, they become a harmonious being like God. For this reason, the two people, that is, the husband and the wife, are a union that represents the whole of God. The man becomes an incarnation of the true father's body by representing God's plus characteristics, and the woman becomes an incarnation of the true mother's body by representing the minus characteristics. Each man or woman is also a representative of God. When a husband and wife become one through love, this is like embracing heaven and earth.

This is an encounter on the universal level. Since the husband represents all men, he is a representative of the father and a representative of the elder brother at the same time as he is the husband; and since the wife represents all women, she is a representative of the mother and a representative of the elder sister at the same time as she is the wife. 'thus, they cannot but love and respect each other. (?-53, 1960.4.16)

The man is the yang (plus) image of God, and the woman the yin (minus) image of God. The husband and wife together would be like wrapping heaven and earth in a wrapping cloth. Therefore, the husband and wife can feel God's ideal heart of love. (11-67, 1963.10.17)

The man symbolizes heaven, and the woman symbolizes earth. The two must unite, forming harmony and parallel lines. (Blessed Family - 868)

The relationship that is called husband and wife is not limited to itself. You should know that it represents heaven and earth. (Blessed Family - 970)

The perfection of the love between a man and a woman is the perfection of the universe. If this love were to be shattered, the order of the universe would be destroyed and the vertical world would be utterly demolished. The loving embrace of a man and a woman itself serves as an occasion where the universe becomes one. This is how the original image is realized in God's ideal. (Blessed Family - 868)

It is because of love that human beings are born as men or women. Love can bear fruit when a man and woman become a husband and wife, thus becoming one. Since men and women are substantial manifestations of God's love through dual characteristics, the separate substantial manifestations must find God's love in order to unite as one.

If they hope to encounter God's love, the man and woman must become one in love. Otherwise, they cannot encounter God's love. By encountering God's love, we live on a level equal to God. This equal level means a position where we can stand next to God. (144-132, 1986.4.12)

When a husband and wife become one in God's love on the foundation of becoming completely one in love, they can advance all the way to God's position. As well as going up to God's position, all that God owns comes to be my possession. The power of God's love is so amazing. God allows them the authority of participation, and at the same time they come to inherit the entire ownership of God. (144-132, 1986.4.12)

Adam's desire was to dominate heaven and earth. The value of husband and wife, which Adam embraced and loved, represented the central value of the world. (64.84, 1972.10.24)

We should clearly realize how holy and valuable the love is that emerges from the people created by God and who were untainted by the Fall, that is: original man and woman. (145 267, 1986.5.15)
