The Words of Sun Myung Moon from 2011
Note: These notes are taken by Professor Tek Yong Oh posted on the web page Unificationism. This translation 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
That day, five staff from Korean HQ and World Mission Center joined the Hoon Dok Hae together with Rev. Yang, Rev. Ki Hun Kim and others.
"Each nation has different language and environment. In order to follow me, you must have the diplomatic power to run the world understanding the relationships in the international community. Do not follow others but pioneer your own way by running a risk of your own life. Foster your ability to conduct diplomacy and work to run a nation. When it comes to influencing the structure of a nation and the direction of its diplomacy, one needs to have networks and expertise. Now the Unification church is reaching the final point, and must leap from here. At this time, the most important thing is a human network."
"In Las Vegas, to have a network is the very foundation of exercising power. It is the last issue in this era of great change how to establish networks and educate them. A key to lead this city is education. The US is now standing at a crossroads, finding herself in diplomatic difficulties while being in a financial disaster. I, as a religious leader, am like an enemy to this city. I am a person that has been interested in this city and has studied it since I was a student. Also, after I came to the US, I have been preparing myself for the providence in this city. Do not say 'I will take responsibility for this city' but just follow me silently. This is a scary place and once you mistakenly say something, you will be caught and taken away."
"One cannot move the world just with the police, the military, or money. How hard it has been for me to reach the summit of the world with the banner of religion. Now all the world knows what Rev. Moon is doing. I know what you are doing without seeing it. I have come to this point by myself."
"I have nothing to possess. I have worked to protect the world with religious thought. It is the media that is between religion and nations. Without the media, religion cannot make relate itself with a nation."
"I don't have my own intelligence agent. The agents in the world know what I am doing better than you. I have many things to do by myself and many things to decide by myself. But many of you think that I have to follow what you decide."
"Without having a foundation, do not talk big. Do you know what I am doing? Since I cannot go to Japan, I sent Gook Jin and Hyung Jin there to resolve the kidnapping problem there."
"Where did the principle come from? The principle is all new. It has been 11 years since I proclaimed Cheon Il Guk. You can find all the traditions of Cheon Il Guk in page 74 of my speech file. It contains all the traditions and essential teachings in the speech and I live in accordance with them. Among you there are some members who do not even know what speech I meant. I will be 98 years old in five years. If I work at that age, people will say I am crazy. You still want to follow me and hide under my shadow. Among your ancestors, is there anybody who tried to put the world under control at the age of 95? You have trusted me until now, but who have I trusted? I must trust you but I cannot do so. I trust in God."
"I personally raised Jeong Ok Yu (ODP lecturer) for years. He does not know that fact. 'Exposition of the Divine Principle' came from 'Explanation of the Divine Principle', which corresponded to changing my name from Yong Myung Moon to Sun Myung Moon. For the sake of forming the trinity of God and the Messiah, the direction must be established first. You do not know God, Jesus and True Father! You do not know with what ground I said the Third Adam! You do not know the Substantial being of Adam, the substantial being of Jesus, the substantial being of True Father, the God of Night, the God of Day, and so on! You do not know why the God of Night and the God of Day have been separated! This is your reality. The God of Night and the God of Day have been fighting against each other, haven't they? You are not able to play the role of the light house in a dark night, aren't you? Who says to liberate the God of Night and the God of Day by liberating Them?"
"The God of Night and the God of Day. You do not know what they are doing. In the Garden of Eden, God called Adam, Eve, and the archangel and said 'Do not eat the fruit of the tree of Good and Evil. You will die when you eat it.' But you do not know what the fruit means. This is the fact in the high level of the spirit world. Those who live in the low level of the spirit world, do not know the higher level. Do not miss the time which comes only once."
"One week after I brought Chung Hwan Kwak to the US, I said to (True) mother 'Chung Hwan Kwak is an enemy and be careful.' Yet, I decided to raise and love him more than my sons and daughters. This is my thought! I made Reagan as the US president. Nobody knows this. When he announced his candidacy, hundreds of media did not believe he would be the president, but I treated him as the future president and supported him. But people do not know how he could become the president."
"Who would believe that if I said that when I was 17 years old, Jesus came to me to ask to be a substitute for him? Were you there at that moment? That happened before you were born. You understand this through my teaching and the principle. I gave a sermon based on the principle."
"When I bought the building for the Peace Palace, I grabbed the neck of the owner and asked him "Do you become my son, disciple, servant or enemy?' He was surprised and said 'I will become your son,' and now he is listening to the Divine Principle lecture. It is simple. In order to witness those who are famous, you must witness first their sons, their wives and cousins."
