“(To have the) Relationship between parents and child means that they resemble each other. If children do not resemble their father and mother, it means they did not inherit the blood lineage from their parents, and also they did not inherit the parents’ tradition. Tradition and the blood lineage must be the same (between parents and children).”

“Without achieving harmony, unification cannot take place. Unless your five senses function harmoniously, unification of your mind and body will never happen. Why do your mind and body fight against each other? Why? You do not know the answer. This is the fundamental problem. Why do they fight? Yours too, right? (‘Yes’) Then why? This is life-and-death issue. So far, there was no philosophical answer to this question and therefore, (humankind) has been in confusion.”

“It is my family that established Jeongju Osan school. Yoonguk, my granduncle knew the importance of understanding Western civilization. Chiguk, my grandfather, knew Chinese history more than anybody else though he did not attend school.”

“You do not know how precious these words are. There are lots of secrets here. This (speech) is like my daily. Look at page 51 (holding a sheet of page 51 and 52). Can you see this? (‘Yes’) It says ‘Proclamation of the Era of the Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind. Humankind represents two persons and if not humankind, restoration or religion would not have been necessary. There had not been parents, owners in heaven and earth, and people did not know why they were born. By having? (Which is translated here as humankind) here, everything has been solved. This? means two people: a human of mind and a human of body.

(Participants that day were mainly from Jeolla provinces)

“Do you know the oyster produced in Jeolla provinces is the best in world? Scientists studied and made it public.”

“We have two pairs of parrots at the Cheon Jeong Gung. (To Mother) What did you name them? Another pair? The reason why she likes parrots is because they kiss 24 hours even when they talk with each other.”

When Shin Jun Nim came to Father for morning greetings, Father said “Let’s kiss.” Firstly, Shin Jun Nim kissed Father’s cheek. Then Father said to him “Kiss here (he pouted)(participants laughed),” and Shin Jun Nim lightly did so. Then Father, interlocked his hand with Shin Jun Nim’s, and kissed their hands. Father said, “This is (how to do) greeting.”

“Today is the 3rd day of the 8th month. 3 x 8 makes 24.”

(If Korea does not accomplish her responsibility) “Korea will be gone. In order to prevent it, there will be the wedding ceremony when I become 93 years old and mother becomes 70 years old. It will be the wedding ceremony of a 93-year-old grandfather and a 70-year-old woman. Once it happens, it will never happen again. We have been beyond the number 50 already.”

(Reading his speech title from the speech file) “Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind.’ This means the whole. If True Parents are not human, there will never be ‘the settlement.'”

“To eat and sleep together with parents all the time and to live and work with them all the time. This is the ideal world, Utopia.”

The meeting was concluded by singing “The Song of the Garden.”
