You can understand how difficult True Parents’ course has been

The Abel Women UN Inauguration Assembly
Cheongpyeong, Korea (HC 5.27)
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
“There are two speeches, speech A and speech B. A: Cosmic Assembly for the Proclamation of the Firm Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind and the Word of the True Substance. Through speech A, you can understand how difficult True Parents’ course has been.
Speech B is the keynote speech of the Abel Women UN Inauguration Assembly. There have been many religions which believed in Heavenly Father but don’t have a concept of Heavenly Mother. That has been a shameful fact. The speech B is to eradicate such history.”
“From the first day when I started to fly like a mosquito, like an ant, and like a bee, my path has never been an easy one. Since I was surrounded by enemies to whom I could not go to greet, it was difficult to reveal the power behind them, I started to learn about in a way the center can expand. In learning it, I realized that I wasn’t alone: when I faced some difficulties, I heard the absolute voice (절대음성) in the air that said “Don’t move.” So I became a person who could live with the absolute voice, which nobody knew. When I was 17 years old while living such life, a person called Jesus came to call me ‘Elder brother Yong Myung (용명형님).’
I didn’t use my Korean name those days because of the Japanese but he knew it.
(Katsumi: During the Japanese occupation, Koreans were forced to change their names to Japanese names)
I said to him, ‘Who are you?’ He said, “I came here today to go with you to join the marriage. I know it will be difficult for you but what do you think if you join me in being married?'”
“It was before I became 4 years old. I could understand everything people said in Korean. My grandparents and their daughters-in-law got together once regarding me, whose nick name was ‘small-eyed boy of Osan house,’ but they couldn’t treat me as they liked. I heard the absolute voice, that said ‘Yong Myung! You will go with your grandpa and what do you think of it? I know that you have heavenly wisdom which enables you to judge and evaluate fortune tellers and spiritualists, but your grandparents don’t know it and so I am sorry they asked you, a child, to do so. I am sorry that you will be asked to do things, and all through your life, I will exchange questions and answers with you. You need to know clearly what kind of life you will lead, but you can guess now you must start your life for something fundamental.’ I had heard such absolute voice many times.”
“Today you are here in this honorable place. Those who like and praise me, raise your hand? (All did) If you were truly so, all Korean people could have been digested by you. When have you praised me in public? Why have you lived shutting up your mouth? You say you have praised and loved me? You are all liars. There hasn’t been a president or minister in a country who loves and praises me thinking they must protect me, who can make the country’s future bright. How can you repent on such a shameful fact? Without repenting, you say, ‘I have been attending Rev. Moon.’ When have you attended me?”
“Abel Women UN. We haven’t had ‘mother.’ People have said ‘Heavenly Father,’ but who can fix the problems among religions and restore the authority of the country? We don’t have a woman yet who can represent the Abel Women UN. Since Adam couldn’t fulfill his responsibility, he lost Eve. Eve kicked out Father, heaven and earth, and I have found and educated Mother preparing her to attend. With the strong determination that I will put Mother in the position of the wife of Adam who represents the Creator, I have been recreating Mother throughout my life so that I can present her in front of the whole world with such a status, even if they strongly oppose it.”
“When I was 17 years old, Jesus suddenly appeared to me in February, he called me ‘Elder brother Yong Myung.’ He said to me ‘Let’s go to the Blessing ceremony.’ Did he know that the God of Night and the God of Day were separated and fighting each other? I, in order to find his identity, asked ‘Who are you?’ Then he, smiling, said, ‘Why did you ask when you already know it? When the time has come again, I will come back to you, and if you don’t listen to me, I will just take you or I will be taken out. We have to choose one of them.'”
“‘Distinguished guests from 193 and 194 nations.’
(Katsumi: in the printed speech, it says only ‘193’)
Why did they take 193 out here? This is important: it should be ‘193 and 194 nations.’
(Reading his speech) “I’m not sure when I can speak to you again in such detail like today.”
The following are some quotations from the speech Father read:
All of this is being undertaken in accordance with the message Rev. Moon revealed in his speech at the establishment of Women’s Federation: “We must define what it is to be True Mother and True Wife through attending True Mother who is the victorious representative of all women around the world. We must realize the ideal families through True Love movement. Then, we must wage the movement to realize the True Love of ‘living for the sake of others’ in every part of the society so that we may realize world peace.”
‘Women’s Federation’ must advance even further now. It must go beyond the next step, to walk the path of the creation of a peaceful world through joining the forces together with other NGOs and women leaders of the world. The establishment of the ‘Abel Women UN’, which will go beyond the level of women NGO and bring the governments around the world together, is absolutely necessary, and it is also the command of God which must be obeyed.
I would like to emphasize once again that the priority of ‘Abel Women UN’ should be the true family movement of living for the sake of others, based on true love, carried out in conjunction with proper values education. War and conflict arises from selfish motives of desiring to take others’ land, possessions or the like by force. On the other hand, peace arises from investing oneself for the sake of others, that is, giving based on true love.
Women are not there to help or to be protected by men; rather, they are independent individuals who, as representatives of the feminine aspect of God’s nature, are meant to make men more complete and manly. Centering on True Love, women are the precious partners of love to men. In terms of value, men and women are absolutely equal beings. Men and women who unite through the True Love of original ideal share the same position. Also, they attain the right to be with each other wherever they may be. Furthermore, they attain the ideal right of inheritance, where each other’s properties will belong to each other equally. Thus, men and women, who are brought into oneness through original love under God’s ideal of true love, have been created to become completely equal beings, centered on true love, by sharing not only the same rank and the right of participation but also their possessions with one another.
I sincerely ask you to walk the path of True Mother, the path of True Wife, the path of True Daughter, and the path of True Women Leaders who will build the unified world where freedom, peace, and happiness in its truest sense overflow.
