Excerpt
“The Origin of Loyalty and Filial Piety1” Volume 1
Unofficial Translation

Do you know how much tears I shed for God? One time, I wept for three days, straight. Through such experiences, I touched the depths of God’s Heart. Even now when I think about the experience — reaching the indescribable tenderness and loneliness of God’s heart through investing my entire mind and spirit — I have to think deeply about how sorrowful and anguished Jesus was. I also live in a place of solitude even lonelier than him. Do you need such a lonely teacher? (Yes.) Put yourself at the pinnacle of solitude! There, God will welcome you.

When I was imprisoned, I stood in such a place. Then, God witnessed to people and through the help of the spirit world they came to believe in me. The spirit world directly testified who I was and, thus I gained my disciples there. With this conviction, wherever I will go, there is nothing that I worry about. If I were taken to the southern tip of Africa, the furthest place from here by a helicopter right now, I will have absolutely no problem about the cultural environment — about eating, sleeping and clothing. You must gain such a confidence.

What do you have to worry about? When you stand in the realm of God’s Heart, place yourself in a position to receive God’s compassion, and go out and obey Heaven. Then, there will be no one who will not obey and follow you. In order to create such people, I tell harsh things to you. Are you all right? Let’s do it. (Yes.) Now, I will trust in you one hundred percent. As I place my trust in you, you must offer results worthy of this trust to Heaven!
