Notes by Michael Jenkins from simultaneous translation
Note: (These notes are taken from a simultaneous translation. Simultaneous translation is done in summary form and depends greatly on the translator’s ability to communicate the essence of the message. These cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication on Rev. Moon’s words. However they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message.)
How do you attend True Parents? Real attendance of True Parents means that you would stay up later than I do for the providence. With that heart you are attending.
How many young people are here? (About 40). How many are blessed? (Very few), they are candidates. You must all be blessed between the ages of 18 – 24. That is a very important time. Of course you want to finish your studies and things like that but you shouldn’t miss this period in which to be blessed.
When you listen to the words of Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, Confucius. They all came from God. The nest from which they created their movements was their Words. Their words were holy and were the nest for the nurturing and development of different aspects of faith. What about Father’s words? They are the nest for the nurturing of humanity.
Husbands should invest totally in their wives and forget their investment. Then love will come about. The wives should do the same. Who is the owner of the love organ? Without the sexual organ your eyes, nose, mouth and all other organs would not have come to exist. Therefore whether you like the sexual organ or not, you cannot deny that the sexual organ is essential for continuing existence. Who is the owner? The spouse must be the owner of the other spouses love organ.
When we become one, we should so close to each other that we do not even mind the odor of the other. When you are in True Love you have no problem with the odor of your baby, your grandfather or grandmother or your spouse.
How did the universe come into being? It came into existence based on the Male, Female relationship. The male tries to give love and the female wants to receive love. The natural order is that the male and female should give and receive. What happens if the female runs away. Then the male cannot give. The female should receive the love of her true spouse and carry on the lineage. That is why the womb is designed to receive.
The womb was designed in a concave shape that it might welcome the convex part of the man. That is why they were meant to come together. That coming together creates a family, a household, a clan and a nation and a civilization.
When they can accept God’s love and create a family then the parents become happy and all rejoice. When the Father and Mother create the ideal, then God can be happy. Why are you happy on this day.
What happens if the husband comes home and smells like alcohol or the perfume of others, this will destroy the trust and the relationship. The wife must drag her husband in and save him from the problems of the world. If you think that you can do what you wish and the other spouse thinks that they can do as they wish it will never work. That is why if you truly live for the sake of your spouse you can grow, pull each other together and have children. This is the key principle.
The heart is an amazing thing. Children long for their mother. They long even when they get older to get back to those times when they were little and could be embraced by their mother. Even when they become 10, 20 or older still the heart is such that we long to go back to the day when we could sleep with our parents, especially our mother. Why, because the human heart and original mind is automatically seeking the root that has unchanging love. We long for the absolute and unchanging love. That kind of love is present between the mother and the baby. That’s why in reverse it is most beautiful to see that parents grow and long for their children to be better than them.
It is interesting however that the deepest happiness does not come from having everything easy. The deepest appreciation and happiness comes when we go through suffering and overcome to experience peace and completion. Through the suffering course we come to understand gratitude and true happiness.
We should understand that suffering is the flower of flowers. Suffering gives us the basis for deep appreciation for the time when we are not suffering.
