What Is Your Dream?
True Mother’s speech at the Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation Scholarship Awards and Volunteer Service Awards Ceremony
February 14, 2016 (1.7 on the heavenly calendar)
Cheongshim Peace World Center
Respected and distinguished guests and leaders, I am happy to welcome you today to the fourth Wonmo Scholarship Awards and Volunteer Service Awards Ceremony. I know that those who receive scholarships have a dream. What is your dream? You, who are in True Parents’ realm, should take the lead in fulfilling Heavenly Parent’s wish, His dream.
Are you going to do that? Each of you will have your own dream. However, a dream centered on yourself has limits. Yet, if you understand True Parents’ teachings and Heavenly Parent’s circumstances and expand your dreams accordingly, you will become historic figures.
When I was young, I was a girl with literary interests. Let’s imagine the landscape of the Netherlands, with windmills and beautiful flowers. From what I remember reading, that country had different conditions from other countries. Its sea level is high. Thus, from a young age the citizens are afraid of flooding.
One day, as a boy was coming back from an errand for his parents, he saw the ocean water seeping through a dike. Without enough time to run for help, the boy tried to block the hole with rocks and dirt, but it was difficult. Water still came through. Thus, the boy blocked the hole with his own body, his own hand.
He waited for people to come, but it was winter. The young boy eventually froze. His parents—who were waiting for their son who should have come home—went out to find him. His parents and other townspeople found him frozen like that. Ladies and gentlemen! This boy’s ideal was not self-centered. He protected and loved his country. Hence, that boy is recorded in that country’s history.
Today your dream should be one that resembles that of True Parents. At the beginning, God dreamed a great dream from when He created all creation until He had created human beings. However, as you probably know through the Divine Principle, Adam and Eve, who should have become the first human ancestors, fell.
Yet, nature did not fall. Despite that, today fallen humans’ greed, recklessness and ignorance are destroying nature. Aren’t the climate problems arising all over the world serious? Aren’t they?
Thus, I hope you will preserve the ideal Heavenly Parent’s idea for the creation in this area and that each of you will develop your dream in your own area and heal the natural world. Do you understand? You need expertise. You must show and educate unenlightened human beings. To do this, you must lead by example and think about how you can save this polluted earth.
When you all combine your strengths, follow True Parents’ teachings and live up to them, that hope, that dream, is reachable. I am proud of you. Do you understand? In that respect, please become the best! I will support you unreservedly.
Did you see all the events yesterday? Parliamentarians came from fifty of the world’s nations. Among them, even Russian and Ukrainian parliamentarians, whose countries used to be in the communist realm, came. They saw the musical “The Dream of Cheon Il Guk: Mission Butterfly.”
What do you think they felt? I believe they would have felt that it doesn’t work with communism; only with True Parents’ ideology can the world become one!
Today, in all parts of the world, we are faced with indescribable difficulties regarding conflicts between religion, ideology, and territory. Even the UN’s efforts to handle these issues are serious. However, in the end human power cannot solve these problems.
You need to understand that human beings must act and must live in accordance with God, our Heavenly Parent, who is the original owner. Because the people are unaware, we must awaken them. Am I correct? Even in the places where you study, you will have peers, other students. You need to teach them.
You must now proudly tell the whole world that True Parents have manifested on earth! That is why the True Parents’ birthday event was so important. Do you understand? Aren’t you my loving sons and daughters, in True Parents’ realm?
The path you must take is one on which you honor True Parents’ will and fulfill Heavenly Parent’s wish, a path down which the entire world becomes Cheon Il Guk citizens. Please remember that taking that path is the only task you must fulfill and work hard for. Will you all promise me this? Thank you.
