Cheon Seong Gyeong – Sun Myung Moon
Our family, the owner of Cheon Il Guk, pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven's blessing to our community, by centering on true love.
What is Family Pledge number six? It states: "Our family pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven's blessing to our community, by centering on true love." You should understand what the True Parents have done and become a family that embodies them; just as heavenly fortune follows the True Parents around when they move, you should unite completely with them and become families that move heavenly fortune and convey God's blessings to your communities. You cannot do it by yourselves alone. You should create families like yours around you. You are pledging to be such a central family. (267-153, 1995.1.4)
"Our family pledges... to embody God and True Parents... by centering on true love" You must become a family that embodies God and True Parents. In this way, by becoming true families that move heaven and earth, you realize families that convey God's blessings to your communities rather than taking it all for yourselves. Be families that can be a blessing and give out blessings every time you move. If there are people around you who do not know the Divine Principle, teach it to them: even if they oppose you, spend your lives together and go through it without fighting. Teach it to your community and gradually expand this. Do not live alone. (266-151, 1994.12.22)
"Our family pledges... to embody God and True Parents..." You are a family that embodies God and True Parents. The families that embody God and True Parents are the families that move heavenly fortune. We "...pledge to become a family that moves heavenly fortune... [and] conveys Heaven's blessing to our community." We are not saying that we alone want to get the blessing and have a good life. We are saying that we are ultimately to become a royal family and make everyone its members. (260-195, 1994.5.8)
We must be families representing God and work to bring peace, happiness and freedom on the earth. So we should always move in rhythm with heaven and earth. Next, since we are in rhythm with God as a family, we should be a family that can transmit heavenly fortune to our communities. This is Pledge number six. By such means, we eventually become a family that embodies God and True Parents and achieve the unified realm of God's heart. The world of the culture of heart begins today through out the world. This is our pledge. (266-103, 1994.12.18)
It is not just I but you also who should be true parents. You should all become that. I have become a large tree, but just as cells multiply, you should be like cells. You are all seeds taking after me as the large tree. You resemble the root. (259-318, 1994.4.24)
Mind and body should be unified. So should man and woman, and Cain and Abel. Through the Fall, mind and body, Adam and Eve, and their children were separated, and thus must be reunified. How? There is no problem because we know the theory clearly. The True Parents are the ideal model of mind-body, husband-wife and parent-child unity.
You know everything because you have learned it from the True Parents, who have achieved global victory; I have to realize the global Kingdom of Heaven, but you just have to realize the family Kingdom of Heaven. In order for you to be true parents, you need to unify mind and body, husband and wife, and parents and children, thereby regaining everything Adam's family lost through the Fall. This is the beginning: there will be peace, happiness, freedom, unity and the Kingdom of Heaven; everything will go well, everything will be okay. (259-318, 1994.4.24)
What does Family Pledge number six states? It states that we will move heavenly fortune as a family that embodies True Parents. The ideal of creation is supposed to follow it. We must become families conveying Heaven's blessing to our community. For how many generations and how many millennia the history of the world based on the culture of heart and undefiled lineage can last through you will determine whether you will be meritorious subjects of God's Kingdom. That is a set equation. (292-107, 1998.3.28)
Humankind must know the way through which heavenly fortune comes. Heavenly fortune is something that moves eternally. It travels along the eternal path, which goes around and around without changing according to eternal principles. As it shapes and paves the roads of prosperity and decline while going around and around within the relationships of humankind, the question is how we human beings standing here can adapt ourselves to this. (149-151, 1986.11.21)
Who controls heavenly fortune? The Lord who created the universe controls it. Who is that Lord? In religious terms we call Him God and use other various nouns, but this is not the issue. There should be a certain Central Being. If we know for sure that the Central Being exists and unshakably follow His path, everything will go well. (209-176, 1990.11.29)
Heavenly fortune moves around and not arbitrarily, since it has its own order, path and law, it moves in accordance with them. This is why all the beings belonging under heavenly fortune exist for the sake of others. (233-81, 1992.7.30)
Heavenly fortune never perishes. Our life sometimes becomes sidetracked by the environment and flows away along byways, but heavenly fortune does not change its course because it obeys God's governance. It is eternal. Just as the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter are immutable, the way of heavenly fortune, which moves humankind, moves along the unchanging track relating to human individuals, families, tribes, people, nations and the world. Humankind has been hitherto ignorant of this. (204-57, 1990.7.1)
Just as individuals have fortune, so do families, nations, and the world; in the same token, all of heaven and earth has heavenly fortune. However good the fortune you may have been born with, if your family fortune declines, you will suffer hardship together, and also those who may have good individual or family fortunes will not be able to avoid their downfall if the broader national fortune wanes. Moreover, the fortunes of the nation and the world are determined in accordance with the direction and progress of heavenly fortune, which encompasses and exists for the sake of the whole. To establish the heavenly way in the world means to adjust the course of individuals and nations to the path of heavenly fortune. (234-258, 1992.8.26)
Heavenly fortune is supposed to supply everything that good people need. So you should not be greedy and think of hogging it to yourselves. If you are to be good, there are only two ways -- you go either to a higher or lower place. If you go to a lower place, everything will be naturally supplied. Air and water will come in and so will heavenly fortune -- it fill the pit. (237-114, 1992.11.13)
Everyone is afraid of me because if I say a word, things happen in the world exactly as I say. This does not happen from nothing. As I know the path of history for sure, I also know the time and then I say it. Things do not happen as I say because I prophesy; they are just supposed to happen that way. If you also became able to see all the directions of heavenly fortune, you would be able to talk about everything that will happen in the future, even things that will happen after a thousand years. (233-161, 1992.8.1)
I have stirred the winds of heavenly fortune because I know it. Where there is a low-pressure area, wind from a high pressure area will blow in. If we exert our utmost strength and devote the greatest efforts of low pressure, God's high-pressure love will rush in, causing a typhoon. You have not believed such words, have you? We should catch the wind of heavenly fortune. (234-160, 1992.8.10)
People say I am like a mysterious man. I know things no one in the world knows and how heavenly fortune is turning. I know where the fortunes of Korea, Asia and the world are going. If we string them together and hang them, they will all be pulled in. A gnat on the rump of a swift stallion travels a great distance even while sucking blood. That is how it is. If you stick to heavenly fortune and don't fall off, everything will be okay. (233-66, 1992.7.30)
Those who cannot go beyond the world are unable to deal with heavenly fortune. Hence, the Unification Church teaches people to transcend the world with heavenly fortune. So with heavenly fortune centering on God, one must stand in a position equal to God and receive from Him the title and royal seal as the Lord who can use heavenly fortune on earth; only then can he be the Messiah, Savior and True Parent. Thus, although the whole world has been hitting just me alone, a person of true goodness does not strike. (233-66, 1992.7.30)
If you want to ride on heavenly fortune, you first have to know what kind of place the way of heavenly fortune is. It is not a place everybody likes and where they enjoy themselves eating and drinking. It is a place everyone dislikes. It should be a place where you are always grateful for everything and give glory to God while carrying out your responsibilities. Those who stand in such a place can ride on heavenly fortune. So you should achieve victory without fail. (19-145, 1968.1.1)
You should stand in the position of serving Korea where you become a shadow and tell the people to be the sun and sunlight; in doing so you should be centered on God's love and have a love that serves others on behalf of heaven and earth and history; also, you should represent the love of all nations, the authority of love of all peoples and the authority of all. If you do so, then God will come to you personally and become sunlight for you. The power to move heaven, the power to move all blessings and to control heavenly fortune accompanies true love. (179-318, 1988.8.14)
Now that the time has come for heavenly fortune to start running in Korea, you should join the work of re-creation for the sake of this people. Due to the Fall, the Subject partner inevitably has to re-create them. With this ideology, you must create your counterparts on behalf of God. Thus, we must re-create our family, nation and world. Although you do not know this, such a mission is in operation twenty-four hours a day transcending time under the proposition of the heavenly way; hence, you should accept this and become successful people who can welcome the new spring in the course of your lives and go on singing while embracing the world. (137-79, 1985.12.18)
You should not try to live quietly just by yourselves. "Our family pledges... by embodying God and True Parents... by centering on true love." Heavenly fortune stays with God and the True Parents. We will realize families that move heavenly fortune, or the heavenly way, and convey God's blessings to our communities. This means wherever they go, Blessed Families will be central families that can give out blessings to everyone. We have not lived like this, have we? (260- 156, 1994.5.2)
What is next? Isn't moving heavenly fortune part of Pledge number six? "...a family that moves heavenly fortune... by centering on true love." All the sufferings of the True Parents are not for them to have a good life, but for liberating all humankind, giving them a share of heavenly fortune and transferring heavenly morals to them. The True Parents are to hand over heavenly fortune as it follows them.
Become channels of blessings. However much you strive toward unification, it will be no good if you come to the earth only receive your own portion of blessing, and then go to the spirit world. Rather, you should accomplishment something on earth. You should pass on something that can satisfy everyone and bring them the great benefits of heavenly fortune before you go. (261-91, 1994.5.22)
What is Family Pledge number six? It states, "Our family pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents..." By becoming families that move heavenly fortune, we should link all God's inheritance and blessings. Who are our communities? They are the Cain world. We need them.
Will you go to the Kingdom of Heaven by yourselves? Some day this will surely come to pass: everyone in our community will say, "You fools! Are you trying to go to the Kingdom of Heaven all by yourselves? Is this what God's will is all about? When we said we did not like the Unification Church, you should have admonished us with a stick even until our death. Why didn't you?" (283-82, 1997.4.8)
We pledge "...to perfect a family that conveys Heaven's blessing to our community..." This refers to being channels of blessings. It is not in order to lead successful lives by ourselves alone that we received the Blessing. Once we have received the call before anybody else, we must make the families of all our brothers and sisters in the whole world families like ours. So we are saying that by propagating heavenly fortune, we will be families existing for the cause of making other families like ours. It is not for us alone. We mean that we will create family harmony that can accomplish everything and bring all families into harmony so that they can be unified. (260-305, 1994.5.19)
Family Pledge number six states: "Our family pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven's blessing to our community, by centering on true love."
You should understand what the True Parents have done and become a family that embodies them; just as heavenly fortune follows the True Parents around when they move, you should unite completely with them and become families that move heavenly fortune and convey Heaven's blessing to your communities. You cannot do it by yourselves alone. You should create families like yours around you. You are pledging to be such a central family. (267-153, 1995.1.4)
What does Family Pledge number six state? It states that we will move heavenly fortune as the family that embodies the True Parents. The ideal of creation is supposed to follow. We must become families conveying Heaven's blessing to our communities.
The number of generations and the number of millennia in the history of the world of the culture of heart and undefiled lineage can last through you will determine whether you will be loyal subjects of God's Kingdom. (292-107, 1998.3.28)
"Our family pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven's blessing to our community, by centering on true love." You are not meant to live comfortably just by yourselves. You should not live comfortably just by yourselves. That is not what God is like. That is not what parents are like. Parents should raise their sons and daughters to be better off than themselves. You should realize families that link up all directions. (280-35, 1996.10.13)
Your ancestors in the spirit world will make you pay indemnity unless you now work to convey God's blessings to your communities. They will resist you. They will keep blocking your way and interfere with you. They will say, "You fools, how is it that your actions don't conform to what you pledged?" This is why I am telling you to give out everything. If you don't do it, you will get stuck in the spirit world. This is an important contract document. This is our pledge. (266-151, 1994.12.22)
Family Pledge number six states, "Our family pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven's blessing to our community, by centering on true love!" We are pledging to be channels of blessings. Only then will you have everything based on the unity of heaven and earth and become channels of blessings centering on this place. You are pledging to become wellsprings of blessings. (264-202, 1994.10.9)
When you water bean sprouts everyday, the water may flow away, but they still grow. How shall I describe your situation? You may be miserable like little mice that fell in the water, but it will be okay if the Unification Church keeps growing. Although my personal situation was miserable, and I had to go to Danbury prison and came under public censure, I walked this path thinking that it would expand God's will, and I am now flying high after Danbury.
You have witnessed such a fact, haven't you? In whose name? It is not in my name. It is in the name of this universe, with God's presence. You should know that because the path of the heavenly way is coming into connection, and it has to be a path where God can operate, the universe is bound to cooperate so we can go forward to victory. (147-197, 1986.9.21)
In the family, what are children of filial piety? They are centered on love. In the nation, what are patriots? They are centered on love. In the world, those who sought to transcend their races to love the people of the world organized the cultural spheres and formed a new global background based on the teachings of the four great saints. Considering this, what kind of people can be the standard-bearers in finally arriving at heavenly fortune? God loves heaven and the earth as well. So they must be champions of love who can love heaven and earth. We have come to such a conclusion. (199-215, 1990.2.17)
