The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 2012
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 from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon #45, titled "Let's Establish Tradition," given on July 1st, 1971.
"Those who have spouses with you here, come to the front. (There were four couples). (To them) Did you get married by yourselves or did I Bless you? ('Father gave us the Blessing.') I have brought you well together as husbands and wives. (Laughter) Now you need to be able to write your autobiography together with your spouse, sharing with each other the themes to write. Actually, every ten tears, you should compare yourself with your spouse to decide which one was better during the period. You should be different rather than living the same life. If you lived in the east, you need to have the experience of living in the west, south and north. Also, you should examine if you became the person who is necessary in the village you live in, and if your family became the roll model and hope for the village. (To the four couples) Do you have children and were they already married?
From now on I would like to have gatherings where Blessed families are together and they boast about their fathers, mothers and children with each other. Parents who can be proud of their children are happy parents. It is really difficult to raise a person rightfully. You have had difficulties in your life of faith, haven't you? It is the life of faith that one can't do as they please. If a mountain blocks you in your path, you can't do with the mountain as you want. It is because the mountain has its own character. Likewise, each of your children has their own distinct individuality, and you should be able to polish their characters as if you were making a beautiful garden raising a variety of trees and piping water.
You must become one of the two kinds anywhere you go, either you lead the whole or you follow the leader. Do you follow your elder brother, younger brother, your parents, or your uncles? In deciding to whom you should follow, you need to see what they have done or left behind.
You should be able to write your autobiography every 10 years."
Mother, while standing, sang "모내기 노래," [Planting Song] and Father, sitting and holding her right hand, joined her in singing.
해가 뜨는 이 벌판
해가 지는 이 벌판
강소굴레 풍경 소리
자고 깨는 농부야
어서 가자 어서 가"
[Let's go ahead nogojiri
Two fields of the rising sun
Let's go to the lantern
Two fields of the sunset
Jiangsu confines sworn
Let's break nongbuya
Saecheonjie new country
Let's go, let's go]
Father asked Mother, "Is there a 2nd verse?" and She replied, "No, there isn't" (Laughter / Applause)
"The voices of man and woman are different, and you sing together with your spouse changing tones of harmony, seeing each other, smiling, holding their hands and kissing each other. You should have many of those kinds of moments in your life. (To the four couples) What do you want to leave behind? You should go (to the spirit world) leaving something behind you. Based on your personality and ability, you should be able to write a song, for example. From now on, I would like members who worked for 10 years or 20 years to write holy songs."
Mother sang '가고파,[GaGoPa]" and Father joined her again in singing.
꿈엔들 잊으리오 그 잔잔한 고향 바다
지금도 그 물새들 날으리 가고파라 가고파.
어디 간들 잊으리오 그 뛰놀던 고향 동무
오늘은 다 무얼 하는고 보고파라 보고파.
나는 왜 어이타가 떠나 살게 되었는고
온갖 것 다 뿌리치고 돌아갈까 돌아가.
내마음 색동옷 입혀 웃고 웃고 지내고자
그 날 그 눈물 없던 때를 찾아가자 찾아가.
[My home water is the blue eyes I see
the South Seas
Endless dream of that calm ocean home and forget Rio
Of those birds go and fly now GaGoPa para.
As a child I used to play that
Forget Rio gandeul home where his comrade ttwinoldeon
Today the Savior and to see what it bogopa para.
Comrades at home all those birds,
Hey, why am I was living hereof other leave
Will all go back to work to hit the roots.
Once frozen, live together and go
EF saekdongot do mine dressed smiling smiling
We'll get unexpected tears when he visited that day.]
"The thing is that husbands and wives sometimes fight but they need to have time to sing songs together. You have all fought sometime, haven't you? Do you know how to fight as husbands or wives? (Nobody answered.)"
