Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication of True Father’s words. However, they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message. — Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Mrs. McDevitt read Father’s speech from his speech book #25, titled “Watershed of Good and Evil” given on Oct. 5, 1969.
“(In the church) Who is the central figure? (‘It’s True Parents.’) No. Even (True) Parents do not know the process of education for each member.
Who is responsible for education? It is the church leaders (Moksa) that are responsible for education. What does sa mean it means ‘teacher.’ When we talk about the church, the church leader is like the root of life for the whole. But people do not understand that point and think they get free food at a free place. Church leaders are not gong (nothing) but bon (model).”
“Which is more important? Bon (the place where one’s ancestor originated from’) or sung (family name)? (Rev. Yu ‘It is…’). Jeong Ok Yu, where is your bon? (‘It is Gang Reung.’) Is it true? Gang Reung is a mountainous district.”
(Calling Hyung Jin Nim to bring his puppy and holding it on his knees) “Why is it called puppy? (Under his arms half body of the puppy was on his knees and the legs were on the chair and Mother said ‘Why don’t you hold it more comfortably?’ Participants laughed and Father correctly put the puppy on his lap) River child and so it means a riverside child. I liked… so much (willows and similar types of trees) (In my hometown) there was a field in the range of four to eight kms and the one-third of their roots were in the water.”
“Boys and girls do not sit together, but even in a class of 97 boys, there must be at least three girls so that they can remind the boys, ‘Oh she looks like my mother, ‘She looks like my sister’ or ‘She looks like my future daughter.'”
“Your lung and heart must spontaneously have give and take action.”
“When you let a baby bite your fingers, they don’t like to bite your fifth finger because it is harder for them to do so. When babies bite, their teeth grow faster. Everything must be kept measured. Everything exists in time. Harmony must come before unification. There are plus and minus. The wives must live in time with their husbands or they would feel uncomfortable otherwise. Women live that way. Man is namja and woman is yeoja. Both have ja. This means they both sleep together and have closest relationship with each other. (Katsumi: jada in Korean means to sleep)”
“Do not eat at night time. I try not to do so at night before sleeping. While sleeping you need to breathe by loosening your lungs comfortably.”
“Those who snore are physically healthy.”
“When you give your speech, you will never be exhausted and can enjoy it if you keep in tune with the audience.
When I speak in pubic I do so. You would become hoarse otherwise. On the stage you need to behave following your heart and you will be tired if you follow your thoughts. So you have to experience a lot. For example, go to the mountains and talk (to nature). ‘Hey flower! Why do you bloom facing east? Since you are small and weak you must bloom often.
You must be happy.’ Then your speech moves because it is alive.'”
True Parents sang Sanyuhwa and Free Heaven and Earth in Heart, which concluded the meeting.
