Title: The 14th Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World, and Directions
May the love and blessing of the Parents of Heaven and Earth be with you all leaders and members.
The Fourteenth Celebration of Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World, October 3, 2001, began with Pledge Ceremony at 7:00 am at the Hannam-dong official residence. At 10 o'clock, the commemorative service was held at Sutaek-ri Central Training center. At 7 o'clock in the evening, a cultural performance was held to honor the day. It was a fitting series of events that enabled everyone to make a new determination and celebrate the day.
In his Pledge Ceremony blessing prayer True Father earnestly prayed as follows:
"We are greeting, Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World, and, centered on all the saints and wise men, and on the four great saints, binding all leaders of religion into one. From today, entering a world of a new dimension and surmounting all obstacles, with sincere prayer that we can establish a foundation in heaven and earth, with all the children who have gathered here, all Unification members and those from the spirit world, and all blessed families and children of the world are united in thought as one mind and one body. Please therefore allow this to be a day on which we can determine to be loyal subjects in front of Your one unified heavenly sovereignty of love."
Following are the main contents of the commemorative speech from Kae Cheon Il plus directions from the world leaders meeting on October 4.
Excerpts from the Words
1. Central Blessed Family and I
The center is only one, and central blessed families, centering on "myself", must think "This is my country" and "God's will is my will" and that "I" have to fulfill my responsibility.
We now have to become independent of True Parents; we must find a nation and return with that accomplishment.
We have to feel that central blessed families have the greatest value in the world, and we have to fight and win on the eight levels of indemnity, for example, individual indemnity, family indemnity, tribal indemnity, national indemnity etc. True Father emphasized this.
2. Going Back to Nature
Because of the fall of man, human beings could not become the masters of the natural world.
Now human beings must gain the qualification as masters and become models in front of all things of the cosmos. To gain the qualification of the owner, we have to be able to live like God and we have to come back to the original world of creation.
The laws of nature never change; in that sunshine, water, air and land combine to create the environment that gives birth to life, they are the elements of the connection to heaven. Blessed families should visit the holy grounds. They should visit the Original Holy Ground, the Root Holy Ground and the Victory Holy Ground in the Pantanal every three or four years.
3. Second Generation Blessing and First Generation Blessing
Second generation blessing: Now is the era of the fourth Adam, and we are thus entering the era in which the parents of the second generation can match their children. But there is a clear principle: that enemies should be matched together. The blessing is a mixing of blood, and Father has matched saints with murderers. Enemies should marry, and families should marry into the families they most dislike in order for harmony and peace to come about. People in high positions should marry those in low positions and white people should marry black people.
First generation blessing: The blessing should be held on the level of the nation, or region within a nation, or continent, with groups of some tens, hundreds or thousands participating. People should not marry just as they please.
