Chapter 4 The Relationship Between Ourselves and Spirit People [Part 1]
Section 1. Spiritual Phenomena and Liberation of Spirits
1. Good Spirit World and Evil Spirit World
The spirit world is divided into two, the satanic world and God's world. If we can find the way to move from the evil to good world quickly, the earthly things will naturally fall into place. Do you understand? [Yes] How do we walk this path? It is possible if we possess the secret method through which we can go to the Satanic spirit world and claim to the heavenly side all Satanic individuals, families, tribes, and nations. Do you understand this?
Such a time is coming. You should know that when this time comes to the spirit world, this will be reflected on earth, and things will roll into this world with a rapid transformation. (134-15)
What is the new movement we are developing? What kind of ideology is it? If God exists, it is the ideology conforming to God's will. Then what does this ideology seek? If God exists, there should also be spirit world. Spirit world is a storage house where all our ancestors, present human beings, and people of the future arrive at and stay.
In this spirit world there must be good and evil worlds because the world on earth is like that, and evil people will have to go to the evil spirit world. If death is the end of existence, this is meaningless; if, however, human beings exist in some relationship with God, and spirit world is where they gather, then this spirit world is inevitably divided into two different kinds good and evil.
The question, then, is what the good kind and what the evil kind are. We human beings have dual purposes, individual and whole. Therefore, God must seek the ideal world of dual purpose, where good and evil spirit worlds harmonize and humans on earth harmonize, thereby bringing everything into oneness and fulfilling the individual and whole purposes.
What, then, is the problem? What has the human history been seeking so far? What is goodness and what is evil? Why do we have to live in such lamentation and bang against the thick wall? It is because the starting point, process, and final destiny are different. What is its content? If we analyze the content, it is quite simple. (12?-83)
We cannot understand this clearly without seeing comprehensively how the spirit world develops and makes a relationship with the world on earth. The spirit world can be divided into good and evil worlds. This is a world that really exists. Although the people on the earth do not realize it, this world is real.
Now, good and evil spirits are struggling with one another in the spirit world. The battle is that good spirits are trying to lead evil spirits to good places, while evil spirits are trying to prevent good spirits from going up to good places. You should know that evil spirits are connected centering on Satan, and people on the earth today are living under their dominion. Why is it? The good spirits are standing on the good side not because they are completely good from God's point of view, but because they have established some condition on earth for separating from Satan.
In the progress towards the world of original ideals, an ideal realm of goodness where original human beings can go, good spirits are fighting their way towards it, and evil spirits are struggling to block the way. The evil spirit world and evil world on earth are in a constant communication. Good spirit persons are the ones who were opposed and persecuted in the sinful world. They are religious believers.
2. Spiritual Phenomena
If religions fought against one another in the final day, what would happen? Now is a time when such a phenomenon can easily occur. Unification Church has been born in order to prevent this. Unification Church is a preventive prescription against it. This is needed.
The spirit world dominates the physical world. There must be hundreds of billions of spirits in the spirit world; the Japanese population of one hundred million is no match at all; it is not even as big as a speck of dust on the tip of the toe. Billions and trillions of spirits are on the offensive in order to take over the physical world.
One example for this is neurosis. In the near future, perhaps after the 1980's or the year 2000, everyone may develop some spiritual sense and communication, either with good spirits or with evil spirits. We cannot but fight against religious wars. Such a time may come. The mission of the Unification Principle is to prevent this. A high antenna produces noises, and this is a phenomenon of neurosis.
What is the most fearful is just to have all the evil spirits attacking the physical world. The question is, what would happen in this case? No matter how many people fill the world, they would all be struck by evil spirits. So God is making the preparation, expanding the foundation centering on good spirits. (55-30)
3. A Letter from the Spirit World
Does spirit world exist or not? [It does.] No. [It does] You rascals, no! [Yes] Then have you seen it? [We have] You found out through me, right? [Yes] What if it is a lie? [It is true] (laughter) Believe, if it is true and you want to believe it. I am not responsible if you go to hell later. Don't say, "Alas, I am in trouble because I was deceived by him." If it really exists as I said, would you not be exclaiming with joy, "Oh, what he said is really true"? [We would.] You will be extremely happy, with your eyes wide open and nose twisted.
These days, I heard that Dr. Sang Hun Lee's wife Han Sook sent him a letter from the spirit world, and that Dr. Lee also replied to her. The letter said: "How wonderful the spirit world is! I did not know that the Blessing is so precious. It is like a dream that we are a part of the heavenly royal family. This is like a mystery. It is so nice here that I am sorry for coming here first. Please forgive me." In other words, she went to the spirit world before the husband, and since she had followed the Unification Church, dream-like things happened to her. So this is why she was sorry, because it is too good.
We are smart people. Since we know the spirit world well, we live our whole life in order to conform ourselves to its program, right? Since we come from the origin, we should go back to the origin. Aren't rivers created by water rising up from the sea and falling back down to the earth? So we should go back to the origin. Life continues through the movement of circulation. Without circulation, everything will dissolve back to the basic elements. Do you understand this? [Yes]
Who is God? You should know this. God is in the position of the mind of the universe, do you see? Can you see the mind? [We can't] Can you see the mind? [We can't] The spirit world is a place where the mind is substantial in a certain form, and it transcends time and space. There you can eat whatever you want. You don't have to worry about food, drink, or clothes. It transcends all the need for the necessities of life. Do you see? Do you need a car there? Do you think there is a car factory there or not? [Not] Would there be factories for food, clothes, or fabrics? [No] None of these are there. There, you can traverse millions of miles in a split second. With what power? Through the power of love; if you have a desire to see a beloved one, he or she appears before you in a second.
The speed of love is the fastest, and it passes in a straight line. This is not a worldly love but Godly love. What is Godly love? It is true love.
When you are in the realm of true love, you can move at the highest speed on a straight line, so you can operate on the stage of the universe, which is under the control of your thought. This is a truth that sounds like a lie. It is because I know such things that I did not complain even when going through the valley of sorrow all alone as a pioneer for seventy years and that I am still determined to walk this path straight until the time of death.
So if I die this way, there is a railroad in the spirit world. The railroads on earth and in spirit world are connected like train rails that go through a national border; they have to fit exactly, not too big or too small. Only the Unification Church knows these things. No matter how proud Christianity is, they don't know it. In this age, which boasts of late-20th century science and the logic of structured progress, Unification Church is the only place where we can testify to God with a religious theory developed through a well-structured process. (210-225)
Now is not a time when Jesus is opposed. Now that the age has come when the entire Korea will praise Reverend Moon's name from the standpoint of global history, you should fulfill the mission of tribal messiah. Now, your tribes-including far distant relatives-will be restored at once. Restoring 120 families in six months is not a problem. We are in the position of elder brother. The whole heaven and earth will see the dawn. A grandfather will become a grandchild, and a father will become a son. It is as, when somebody becomes a king, his grandparents and parents have to serve him. Messiah means kingship, right?
In his country, all the saints will return from the spirit world and you can rule as kings in the name of the Christ. Here is tribal kingship. Then this becomes a realm of liberation in which kingship can participate in the global domain. Just go and see if this is empty words. Now we have a letter from Dr. Lee's wife in the spirit world, Han Sook. She said, "Oh, when I came to the spirit world... you can come here when you are Blessed. I did not know what royal family of heaven means until I came here. Sang Hun, I am sorry that I came here before you." It is this kind of place.
When such an immense and eternal world is unfolding for us in our hometown, I don't want you to be poor people who have a limited scope of operation and lose your sense of direction. I am doing this in order to create a clear, liberated realm in which we can travel freely to the highest heights of the great cosmos. What do you have to leave behind for the sake of the future generations? You should leave behind good things in the country for the sake of your descendants. Then people of the country will protect them, right?
So instead of money, power, or knowledge, leave behind patriotic accomplishments. This is the preparation. Without preparation, even I would have perished, right? Everyone wished for my downfall, and yet I made a thorough preparation against my downfall. So I cannot be ruined under any circumstances. (213-146)
4. Hope of Spirit People
Then what would people in the spirit world desire? This is the problem. Food? In the spirit world you can be supplied with all you need according to your situation. If I want something, it comes to me immediately. Do you understand? There is nothing that is impossible if you have the subjective ability to digest and move it. I don't talk about this so much because when I do, people say I am out of my mind. If you want to give a party for one million people, it can be done very quickly because one million people will appear at once and all the preparations will be finished in a minute. Isn't it wonderful?
How miserable is the world at present? Considering the Korean situation, there are many jobless people, aren't there? This is the situation. What would move things forward and bring hope? When atoms divide, heat is produced, and in the same way, when we start the division process of love. one spark will create chain explosions, "Ba ba ba hang!" Doesn't it look quite likely? (141-278)
The question is how the other world is connected. Those in the other world hope that tomorrow is better than today, just as people in this world commonly desire that today be better than yesterday, and tomorrow better than today. Everyone, whether Orientals or Westerners, of the past, present or future, all desire a better tomorrow. This never changes. All the spirits are the same. They want to have a better future and better life in the spirit world than they had on earth. Then, the question is centering on why we desire a better future. (141-269)
The 6,000-years history has been a history of searching for one Adam, and a history of re-creating Adam. This is why you should follow me. Eve cannot be created without Adam. This is why God has to create one man, Adam. For this purpose, the flesh and blood of the countless people who have appeared in the providence for restoration should be used as material. The sorrows and hopes of the millions of spirit people have to gather together and unite. When the substantial Adam figure finally appears, only then can the martyrs, who have died under severe persecutions, be sure that their lives were worthwhile. So spirit people receive liberation themselves by connecting with people on earth. This is how it works. This should not be just a vague concept. The question is how we can realize it deeply. (29-271)
We should move on no matter what others are doing on the side, whether they are eating or resting. In front of us, thousands are continuously going forward. If you struggle and make strong efforts to go, pulling the rope relentlessly, other people will also hold the rope for you. In the meantime you will also feel that many people fall away from the rope. It is like a marathon competition. There will he first place and second place. History has been flowing this way. So far, countless spirit people have been holding onto this rope for thousands of years. So if you take the first place, go to the other world and take over the puller of the rope, then both spirit world and physical world will be restored (32-145)
5. Liberation of Spirit People
Our Unification Church must complete the missions of three eras: saving the spirit people, liberating the people living in the present sinful world. and creating freedom for those who are to come in the future. So we are proposing liberation in three eras. This is an astounding task What will happen if such dream-like things come to pass in reality? Your mouth will open wide, your mouth won't be able to close and your ears will rise up high, but you will have no choice but to bow down your head. (28-201).
Now, what is the Unification Church trying to do? It is trying to create peace and reconciliation. But to whom do you want to bring reconciliation? Jesus and the Holy Spirit have been engaged in this task, giving birth. What Jesus and the Holy Spirit must do is to give birth to children. The Bible says that through birth we receive salvation. Nevertheless, Christians say that women should not give birth. Then why did God create the organ for childbirth? No. This tells us symbolically that women must give birth again as a representative of Eve.
The essential characteristics of an original mother failed to be incarnated in Eve's body and spirit, as Eve failed to establish the base for reciprocation with the original subject-partner, who was to receive and complete those characteristics; for this reason, God took them back So in the time of Jesus God sent these characteristics in the object-partner to the subject-partner. However they have no body. Jesus had a physical body, but the Holy Spirit never had a body. This is why we say that the Holy Spirit is like fire, oil or wind.
The Holy Spirit enters into human hearts, moves them, and cleanses sins. It is like a mother giving birth to a child and raising him up. Just as a mother needs a father's protection for childbirth, so for rebirth one should have the condition than one is reborn through the protection of Jesus. Now, have Jesus and the Holy Spirit been able to rest so far? No. Also, has Christianity been able to rest? No. Also, in trying to save the fallen humans for 6,000 years has God been able to rest? No. Then, has the Unification Church been able to rest? Has Rev. Moon been able to rest? Although I am over fifty years old, I am still running around like a startled deer.
What am I busy for? I am trying to bring reconciliation so that God can rest, Jesus and the Holy Spirit can rest, and all our ancestors can be at ease. God is an ancestor, isn't he? All the Christian saints who have been to the world are our forefathers. All the religious leaders are the same. We must liberate them all. We must resolve their sorrow. Such a problem now remains. (75-38)
I am thinking about this all the time, as soon as I wake up and even on the way to the bathroom. Asleep or awake, wherever I am, and whomever I meet, I am thinking about this. Do you understand this? This is why I am not indebted to you. How incapable a leader must be to live in debt! I am now fifty-eight, coming close to sixty, yet I always tell myself that I will not be beaten by young people. Even these days, I go to the boat every day. I am doing this because I know that in America those who have an interest in the sea will have great economic power.
I am doing this in order to liberate the spirits of those who died in the sea. Sometimes, I go out to the sea even after hearing a storm warning. Why? Because there are many spirits of people who died in the storm. In 1975, I went to Cape Cod and liberated spirit people. No one knows this in the world, not even the captain of the boat. My daughter and True Mother are doing the same thing now. Then why are we doing it, when receiving persecution for this? For the sake of the liberation of the spirit world. You understand, right? (93-96)
6. Unification of Spirit World
This world is Satan's stage of action, and spirit world God's stage of action; as such the two worlds have been always in confrontation. Since this surely remains as a sorrow in the Age of Restoration, we cannot let them continue in opposition to each other. We should establish the realm of the mind centering on God and realm of body governed by God. You should know that securing the foundation of unification depends on how you develop this in your daily life. (45-213)
In order to unify the Unification Church, we should unify the spirit world. Do you know spirit world? [Yes] Our Unification folks should understand spirit world and unify it. Do you think it is easy to unify it? Without unification of the spirit world, there is no unification of the world on earth. You know that the fight in the world on earth is hard, right? Then, do you think the fight in the spirit world would be easier? [Harder] Considering this, our Unification members cannot speak about hardship, since I am going forward myself. (153-56)
In the search for an ideal, what makes the physical and spiritual affairs one? For the sake of the unification of the two realms, things have to be switched around. If I hold on to my own, it will not work. I have to give everything and then the other side will come along here, and the other side has to give everything, and this side will go along there. We are moving on in order to find the lost place. (I47-94)
In connecting the spiritual and physical worlds, we should first confirm and realize deeply our conviction for the world and the ideal of unification, after which we should gratefully take the suffering path in order to realize it worldwide. Then the spiritual and physical worlds will automatically become one, and unification will start from there. The direction of unification will be decided there. (29-285)
Can the Unification Church unify the world on earth before unifying the spirit world? [No] That is the Principle. For this reason, in order to unify the spirit world, I am driving the Unification members into a place of death mercilessly. Then spirit world will have to help you. The more miserable place you go into, the more the spirit world will be united. Do you see this? [Yes] When you go into a deep place, the realm of the heavenly kingdom will be open among the thirty million Korean people. Do you see this? This realm includes those who are in hell. (49-109)
