Participants from the Universal Peace Federation World Leaders Assembly
170 participants including regional presidents and leaders from key mission nations who had come to Korea to take part in True Parents’ birthday celebration took part in this morning’s Hoon Dok Hae.
True Parents entered the room a little before 5:00 a.m. Mr. Yong Heum Lee, who is in charge of the Bering Project, presented flowers to True Parents.
Mrs. Wonju McDevitt then read chapter nine form the Pyeonghwa Hoongyeong.
Summary of True Father’s words:
You must go through this process to create a nation. I’ve cleared the path for this in both the heaven and the earth. You have to do this. Plant the seeds and make sure the members of your clan create this nation. Each should be admitted into one of the twelve tribes, just as the 280 clans formed the nation of Korea. Each clan should be blessed and enter the realm of the Abel UN. That is why the blessing should quickly be given to all people. God’s will shall not be fulfilled if you sit there doing nothing.
Once you go to the spirit world everything left undone, all my teachings would be realized and the spirit world will be reorganized into a unified kingdom. That is why such a re-organization should begin from the earth so that the spirit world and physical world can be of accord under as the subject and object partners.
Individuals, families, tribes, nations — the 194 nations admitted into the Abel UN should become as one. That nation will be centered on the Abel UN. The nations where your clans are based and the Abel UN are like Cain and Abel and thus should become one and together move on to a time of liberation. The path that the Unification Church has taken so far is not the path you should take from now. You should go forth taking your own share of responsibility.
What is the blessing? It is about creating the seed for the perfection of the family and entering a state that Adam had should have been if not for the fall. Every single person should have read this book. Once you begin reading this book you should hold Hoon Dok Hae each morning in your family, with your mother and father, and with the members of your clan, just as I have been doing until now. Then the entire world will be like a single human being, each family would have that same tradition. You have to become an owner of heaven who is free to go anywhere in world free from national borders.
True Father then had the leaders from Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Canada stand up and to them emphasized the importance of the role of island and peninsular nations. He emphasized that these nations were, from a providential viewpoint, like one nation. He encouraged the nations to invest themselves in the blessing as the era of persecution had passed.
Dr. Sun Jo Hwang then sang ‘Hugong’, Ms. Soon Ja Han sang ‘Pyungyang Arirang.’
Dr. Christopher B.H. Kim and his wife sang together. Dr. Hwang offered a prayer concluding the three hour Hoon Dok Hae session.
