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

“True Parents’ prayer is “元亨利貞은 天道之常이니라(원형이정은 천도지상이니라)” One must follow the path that Heaven takes, seeking for the origin of heaven and earth. ‘원형이정 은’ (which has five words) indicates that we need to go beyond the five summits (that are on individual, familial, tribal, racial and national levels). This tells us there is no change in Heaven’s way. Then “仁義禮智은 人性之綱(인의예지은 인성지강)”*

“Young widows and young widowers will disappear. It is because they lack upper and lower partners, nor right and left partners, without knowing the direction of heaven and earth.”

Note

*This is the first part of the prayer of True Parents, revealed from 2011 (if I am correct), which Father compares to the “Lord’s Prayer.” This is from “Moderation (중용 /中庸), written by Confucius’ grandson 자사 (子思 / Jasa), one of the Seven Chinese Classics (the Four Books and the Three Classics). Which says: 元亨利貞 天道之常(원형이정 천도지상) 仁義禮智 人性之綱(인의예지 인성지강).and This basically means that “spring, summer, autumn and winter, which respectively represent foundation, growth, harvest and conclusion of life, are unchanging heavenly law, and that is also the way humans are who pursue love, righteousness, courtesy and knowledge in order to go along with Heaven.”

The second part of the prayer, which he didn’t mention that day, is Father’s providential viewpoint of realizing the ideal word, in which he basically says “uniting England, the US, France, Japan, Germany and Italy centering on True Parents’ family, the world of peace will be established.”
