Party Celebrating the Publication of True Parents’ Autobiography on June 1, 2009
3500 People Massed in the Party Celebrating the Publication of Rev. Moon’s Autobiography at COEX in Seoul
The party celebrating the publication of Rev. Moon’s autobiography was held on June 1, 2009. It was published for the first time in his 90-year lifetime. For the celebration of the publication of Rev. Moon’s autobiography titled “As the Cosmopolitan Who Loves Peace,” the party began at COEX in Seoul on June 1, 2009, 4:30 pm, with 3500 people. It was successfully held with the subject “World Peace: A Story of Sharing and Moving.” This event was held with VIPs and leaders of Korea and the world, and was recorded as one of the biggest parties celebrating the publication in history.
Mr. Cheol Soon Lee, Chairman of the board of trustees of Korean Cultural Foundation, who is 88 years old and also the chairman of the Founding Committee of the Republic of Korea gave the congratulatory address. He said, “It is my honor and glory to give the congratulatory address at this party celebrating the publication of Rev. Moon’s autobiography. The publication of an autobiography has the significance that the author arranges his/her life and is able to convey the wisdom and help down to posterity.”
At the main address, Rev. Chung Hwan Kwak first delivered the message to the participants that the autobiography was skyrocketing to being a best-seller in Korea. He emphasized, “Rev. Moon has lived a life of practice, walking the way for real world peace and happiness of the individual, family, society, and all human beings even in the difficulties of suspicion and prejudice. This autobiography will become a guideline of life for young people. I would like to ask your continuous concern for this book.”
True Father said, “There are many people in God’s side, but few love heaven. We have to know heaven. We have to teach heaven. My autobiography this time gets a mark of 84.” Also, he explained to the participants 4 Great Saints and their wives who were blessed with them, and said that it was necessary to know this fact in order for participants to understand his message today.
He repeatedly emphasized the importance of true family and true lineage for world peace through his speech titled “The World of True Peace and the Settlement of Peace through the True Parent UN.” True Father also mentioned the “Age After the Coming of Heaven,” the “Revolution of Educating the Value of the Absolute Sex,” the “True Peace World UN,” the “International and Cross-cultural Marriage Blessing,” “God’s Creation of the Object Partner of Love,” and the outline of the heavenly constitution. He continuously talked these issues standing for more than 2 hours, and finish talking at about 8 o’clock.
True Parents brought such a great victory, and they will visit America soon in order to succeed their victory to America.
Also, they gave blessed central families the “Education Session Proclaiming the Completion of the Liberated Realm of the Portion of Responsibility in God’s Providential History” in order to give them the qualification to fulfill their mission and responsibility as the individual and the whole by January 13, 2013.
The “Education Session Proclaiming the Completion of the Liberated Realm of the Portion of Responsibility in God’s Providential History” (the Original Divine Principle workshop)
The official memo on May 29, 2009 explained the providential significance of the workshop this time, so please carefully read it. The 1st workshop started on October 10, 2008. The “Liberated Realm” here means the liberation of God and True Parents after having fulfilled all their responsibilities. This workshop is the original education for the first time in God’s providential history. It is the workshop in which God would have directly educated Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden before the fall on their responsibility.
When we fulfill our responsibility after attending the workshop, True Children, 5 Great Saints, disciples of the 5 Great Saints, and Absolute Good Spirits in the spirit world, which is in the position of Archangel, can cooperate with us. Therefore, this workshop is also the starting point that the whole spirit world can cooperate with us. Through receiving this education, we can be reborn as Adam and Eve before the fall and fulfill the responsibility of the original human beings.
Moreover, this workshop started as True Parents’ present for all blessed central families to inherit True Parents’ victory through the helicopter accident of 3 generations of True Parents on July 19, 2008.
Now, we need to know what this age is and what kind of age will be from now in detail. I heard that there would be the lectures on these issues in the Original Divine Principle workshop this time. It is the workshop which all blessed central families are asked to attend as soon as possible, with the preparation of prayer and sincere devotion, and with the heart centering on In Jin Nim. Furthermore, it is the workshop in order for America, the Elder Son Nation, to start on a completely new level centering on True Parents and In Jin Nim.
Then, how should we live who receive such an immeasurable blessing of God and love of True Parents? When I attended the Sunday service of the Lovin’ Life Ministry which started centering on In Jin Nim on April 12, I wept to feel immeasurable love of God every time. In Jin Nim is uplifting us with God’s love and bringing our heart close to True Parents’ heart as the mediator between True Parents and us. I feel that In Jin Nim shows us the life of attendance shedding tremendous tears for the reality of blessed central families in America, with absolute faith to God and True Parents. John 15:12-13 states, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
True Parents said,
“Heavenly kingdom is not a special one. It is the place to attend God and True Parents and to live in love. That is all. You have to apply this love to the relationship between husband and wife and among your colleagues. As I want to see parents, the parents want me to love brothers and sisters more than I love parents. It is a reality. When I want to be a filial child in front of parents, I cannot fight with my brothers. If so, I cannot be a filial child. Therefore, parents want their children to live for the sake of one another rather than for the sake of the parents. Even though I cannot take care of my parents, when I say, “Mother, please wait for a while. I first love my brother,” the mother thinks, “This child has some good points.” Likewise, those who love brothers more than love parents can live eternally in the heavenly kingdom. However, those who cannot love brothers the same as love parents are out of there.”
(From The Life of Attendance)
In Jin Nim is literally practicing these words of True Parents for the sake of America, the Elder Son Nation. Therefore, our blessed central families, let’s inherit True Parents’ heart and victory through In Jin Nim and other True Children. Let’s offer sincere devotion, pray, be united into one, practice, and offer this month of June to God in order to fulfill the mission and responsibility of America, the Elder Son Nation!
