Hoon Dok Hwe with True Parents on April 1st 2010
The following are unofficial notes of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon’s words to Unification Church members during the Hoon Dok Hwe service held on April 1, 2010 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA.
NOTE:(These notes are taken from a simultaneous translation. Simultaneous translation is done in summary form and depends greatly on the translator’s ability to communicate the essence of the message. These cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication on Rev. Moon’s words. However they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message.)
Notes from True Father’s Words:
To be born on the earth at the time of the Second Coming of Christ is a great blessing. The lunar calendar and solar calendar are different. The solar calendar is one month ahead of the lunar calendar this year.
[Father demonstrated the number 10 and 12 on his hands.]
The right hand and the left hand must cooperate together. These partners are always needed. Western philosophy doesn’t understand the need for partners. In the West – it is thought that men and women are just the same. Woman has a womb and receives the seed. She gives birth to the baby – that doesn’t make her the center. The womb contains the ovum but it needs the sperm.
Why is the number seven an important number? Why is it the number of happiness and the finest number? We celebrate Ahn Shi Il every eight days. The number four (which represents the four position foundation) is greater than the numbers one, two and three.
Why do we need the number twelve? Our ancestors received the importance of these numbers through revelation, but they didn’t know the real reason.
American women are moving the American culture right now. The western culture is connected to the hunting culture and therefore shoes are worn in the home. The hunter wore his shoes when he ate, with his gun handy, ready to shoot down any animals that came his way.
In western schools, it is said that men and women are the same, but according to heavenly tradition, man and woman each have distinct roles to play.
You may ask why I asked you to come to Washington, which represents “washing stone” in order to hold today’s event. Washington is the place where Jesus can be resurrected, and the place where God can march. It is like washing a crystal. It has the quality of granite that doesn’t change.
Geumgang-san (Diamond Mountain) is granite and looks the same as it did 10,000 years ago.
Is it good to have a round face or a long face? Faces of baby girls are rounder and faces of baby boys are longer.
Why do westerners have long faces? Because of the hunting culture. Hunters resolved conflict thru bloodshed.
There are people here that are bigger than me [physically] but how big is their heart? God wants to live in our hearts. The eyes come from God – God wants to live in our eyes and in every cell of our body. Does individualism create unity between people? Elected leaders should be working together with their primary goal being to benefit their entire nation. If American women say that they don’t need men, then America will disappear within 300 years. Never think that you are more precious than your partner. Our eyes and cells get nutrients from sunlight. Similarly, man gives positive elements to his wife.
The hippies let their hair grow – they wanted to be like monkeys. What does not change becomes the standard.
My eyes are small and my nose is large like that of a Jewish person – it is like an eagle’s beak.
I am God’s person. All I care about is God. There is the Arlington Cemetary here in Washington, a burial place for people who died for God’s sake. Why do you think America is declining? If America goes beyond race and religion it will rise – if not it will decline. The Lord of the Second Advent was sent to America because God prepared this country. But America cannot grow when it is full of free sex. Incest and other free sex problems prevent the growth of America. When people read my autobiography they repent and realize that their nation could change in a very short time. If the Ivy League schools would listen to me, America could be changed in three years. Incest in America must be cut off in one swipe. In this age of the Pacific Rim, I don’t want God to suffer. That’s why I’m here in America.
If America unites with me it will rise. It has been 62 years since the founding of Korea. America is the highest place in the world – God prepared for this time. Father is the one who knows how America can go. I am still very strong. [Father grasps Mother’s hands.] When I grab someone, that person can’t get away. I’m not afraid of anything in America. I am capable of fighting with my arms and legs and every part of my body.
Based on the law of indemnity, we should have greater faith.
There should be no adultery in the Unification Church.
I will speak in Washington, New York and Las Vegas. Father is doing this difficult work here in America. After that, you may go back to work. I will then hold an event greater than all three events in Korea. Should I do this or not? Should I let Mother stand in the front or should I stand in the front? People want me to rest. People want me to rest and put mother and my sons and daughters in the front.
The liberation of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Israel occurred thru the Jerusalem, Washington and Seoul Declarations that were completed.
If America can’t fulfill its responsibility, her responsibility will go to Russia. If Russia cannot fulfill it, then China must. If China cannot, then Korea must.
Should I die early or finish my work early. I must first finish my work and then I can make the transition. In order to understand God’s love and True Parents’ love you must become totally intoxicated in these textbooks for heaven. I have no more concerns or attachments in America. I have fulfilled all. I have gone beyond the national boundaries.
My name used to be Yong Myung Moon. Yong means dragon. I fought a lot with Satan and his minions and defeated them on every step of the way.
What kind of textbooks of God did I make? The history of the textbooks of God is a long history.
Is the history of night longer or the history of the day longer? God was growing even before the Creation. There are 7 basic colors that came out, making the white color [day]. But they should all go back to the black color because they came from there [night].
How can Protestantism and Catholicism come together as one? We have to go back to the beginning of all existence. True love can digest all joy and sadness.
Now is the change for heaven and earth. East and West can become united. The 44th True Parents Day is coming – it is not an odd number – it is an even number. No one has been able to unite with me.
Hyun Jin is out and using Father’s teachings – there are intellectual rights and he shouldn’t do that. The owner of the principle of creation and the Principle is True Parents. Rev. Moon’s history will not go away. Don’t boast about being a white person.
I made a D Day – January 13, 2013. We must make a conclusion at this time. Everything I’ve worked for the last 30 years is to make these textbooks. We made 1700 books. They have been condensed into the seven main textbooks that I have.
Rev. Yoo, please sing the song about the white horse that represents the Second Coming.
[Rev. Jeong Og Yu sings the Baekmaya song.]
Now is the time to look for the realization of the hometown.
It has been a long time since we attended True Parents here.
Mr. Joo, please explain about my autobiography.
Notes from Mr. Dong Moon (Douglas) Joo’s Report:
On March 1st last year, a Buddhist woman handled the publishing of Father’s historic autobiography.
Tom McDevitt, Larry Moffit and Frank Kaufmann are working on the English version of Father’s autobiography, bringing with them the editorial foundation of the Washington Times. I bring with my experience of over 50 years of working in the publishing industry.
Three fourths of the autobiography describes Father’s life before he came to America. Only one fourth is of his life after he came to America. Father has 40 years of experience as a world leader. The purpose of the Korean autobiography was to show Father’s internal course and to really help Korea understand True Parents. Half of Father’s life was missing.
For Father to write an autobiography is truly amazing. At his age of 90, can we expect there to ever be another autobiography? We must not decrease the content of Father’s life [by printing an incomplete autobiography].
When Father goes on a 120-nation tour, many would think, “Oh, he gets to see many sights” but that is not so. National and world tours are spiritual battles, through which Father battles Satan for ownership of each city and nation on the tour. When Father went to South America, he risked his life to save humanity.
Notes from True Father’s Words:
I must make a way for all people. The only way to do that is through the autobiography. This is the way that everyone can connect.
[Father asks Dr. Yang to give a report, and then asks him to sit down after about two minutes of reporting.]
Each different person has a different affect on history. Father is working to make a foundation for all faiths and all people of the world to come to Heaven.
In Jin Nim knows Father. She said she would make it so that I wouldn’t be embarrassed here in Washington. She went to Harvard and fully realizes that Father is higher than the thought of Harvard and higher than the world. Now all the members of True Family are coming together with True Parents. In the future you won’t be able to easily get this textbook. Now in the next three years – you can totally change the environment based on this three-year course. This is the age of competition. Being American is not enough reason for you to be proud. You must produce results. Now my life is in a book [Father’s autobiography]. We have the intellectual rights for this.
[Father has been reading speeches from the fourth volume of Sermons of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Today Father asked that we read the same speech that was read in New York (at East Garden): Jesus Who Came with the Destiny of Restoration.]
This speech will never fade – thousands of years from now people will be inspired.
When is the speech tonight? [Audience: “7 p.m.”] The more you read Father’s speech [before the event] the more people will get inspired [during the event].
