The Words of Sun Myung Moon from 2010
Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech titled "Let's Overcome Hardships on a Racial Level." In the speech, Father said the following:
"When you are with me, all you have to do is obediently follow me. But after I leave here for God's providence on a worldwide level, you must be able to run a risk by yourself to make a big leap forward. When a new Heavenly fortune comes to you, you must be able to become a person who has no shame to receive it.
I am in Seoul now but my mind has already gone to local churches. Until I come back from my tour, you must continue to pray sitting down on your knees, even in a cold room. You must complete both your internal and external responsibilities, and get determined to follow my sorrowful course while being responsible for the fate of the people of this nation. I hope there will be no failures until I come back.
In order to overcome hardships, you need to follow your central figure's directions rather than mine. Even if their directions are mistaken, you must observe them. Even if you have your own emotions, you must pray for them for the sake of the nation. If you judge with your own perspective someone who agonizes to accomplish their public mission, your future will not be good. If someone gives you hardship but you are patient and work hard for the sake of a more public purpose, they will be removed by Heaven. If you offer your utmost Jeong Seong to Heaven, those who oppose you will be removed by Heaven.
We must form a race that is willing to die for the sake of the whole world. Those who are responsible must not express their joy, sorrow, and anger. Even if you are sad, do not hold a grudge. Our course still remains to go. How can we educate young people so that they are determined to shed blood and tears for the sake of the world? You cannot go this course alone, and must have comrades around you.
Even if the central figures cannot fulfill their responsibilities, it will be fine if there remains at least one member in the front line who sticks to God's will. If one leaf is still alive, the tree is considered still alive, and it can continue to grow.
You need to realize the kingdom of heaven in you first."
Then Dr. Peter Kim read two testimonies of 2nd gens who had participated at the matching for the 10.14 Blessing of this year. Prior to the reading, he said Hyung Jin Nim had given him the material to read for True Parents. True Parents and the participants often laughed while he was reading the testimonies of the 2nd gens from Australia and England.
After reading, Father said,
"Even when one sees all the candidates of opposite sex, they sometimes could feel 'there is nobody suitable for me.' I know that very well. But you have to be able to judge there if you are ready for the matching or not. That is a serious moment in your life which decides the rest of your life.
When husband and wife have a quarrel, they know who is wrong. If one says, 'I do not know,' that is a lie. You conscience knows it.
Anywhere I go in the world, I am aware of which is East, West, North and South."
Father spent quite some time to explain the significance of the way one interlocks two hands together.
