Hoon Dok Hae at Cheon Jeong Gung

Translation of notes taken by the UC History Compilation Committee
Summary of Father’s words:
We are living in an era without an owner. The Republic of Korea does not have a center. It can never become one through elections. Get rid of the elections. If it is a bicameral system the two houses should advance as one yet they fight amongst each other.
When we talk about the parent-child relationship the parents are not the center. The parents exist for the sake of the children.
Who is the owner of a house? It is not the son or the daughter nor the father; the parents centered on the children are the owner.
A person who is a center must be one who can raise others. Without a family a nation cannot exist.
If you don’t take action for what you know you are worse than if you hadn’t known.
What is CARP doing these days? What is the average age of the people here? [Early twenties] That’s a good age. When I was your age I prayed in tears till my eyes were so swollen that I couldn’t look up to the sun. If you can bless the people in your clan then this nation can be restored.
You are now able to go to any nation and give hoondok lectures. The Cheon Seong Gyeong and Family Pledge have already been translated into 48 languages.
The world can be restored in a second. From now, small island nations can be restored in an instant. Educating the people of your clan is saving them.
My grandson Shin-joon is quite clever. When he is awake he is all over the place; by the end of the day he falls asleep exhausted. Yet, when it becomes time for him to hand out the snacks [to the participants of Hoon Dok Hae] he wakes up immediately.
It is said that you cannot enter heaven without becoming like a child. Shin-joon is fair. He gives everybody their fair share of the snacks.
You cannot enter heaven they way you are. If you could I would not be living my life like this. I do not wish for you to become members of the parliament. You should live for the sake of others.
The framework of the principle does not represent the entire truth. It is but a conditional framework. There is nothing I cannot do. I know how to farm, hunt and catch birds and fish. If there is a family that had not fallen, there would have been a path leading straight to heaven.
People who leave behind an immoral tradition to their descendants should be quarantined. 2/3 of the nation might have to be quarantined. They can be quarantined on an island. Otherwise, Satan’s seed will remain. It must be completely wiped away.
Hyung-jin is giving Divine Principle lectures. If you are going to give a lecture you should read the book at least ten times. From the next blessing I’m thinking of blessing people from sixteen and up.
Today is the 12th. You have to make a new determination. The young people in CARP should dream big. Clasp your hands. If your left thumb covers your right you are a conscientious person, a religious person. That is why you must sacrifice. You have to become princes and princesses of the new age. Otherwise you will have no relation to it.
Three generations should be mobilized. Three generations should be blessed and made as one. You have to create a revolution and do what the Ambassadors for Peace are failing to do.
CARP members should now make full use of their parents to witness to their clans. The time has come to turn your clan upside down.
