The Defining Moment 

for

 

Creating the Culture of Conscience

 

 

Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

 

- Mother Teresa

 

 

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.

 

- Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

 

- Buddha

 

 

Shall I not inform you of a better act than fasting, alms, and prayers? Making peace between one another: enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots.

 

- Muhammad

 

 

I say to you, this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and so precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren't fit to live. You may be thirty-eight years old, as I happen to be, and one day some great principle, some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great issue, some great cause and you refused to do it because you are afraid.  You refuse to do it because you want to live longer.  You're afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you're afraid that somebody will stab you or shoot at you or bomb your house.

 

So you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are ninety, but you are just as dead at thirty-eight as you would be at ninety. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announced of an earlier death of the spirit. You died when you refused to stand up for right.  You died when you refused to stand up for truth.  You died when you refused to stand up for justice..."

 

Don't ever think that you're by yourself.  Go to jail if necessary, but you never go alone.  Take a stand for that which is right, and the world may misunderstand you, and criticize you, but you never go alone.  For somewhere I read that one with God is a majority.  Walk with Him this morning and believe in Him and do what is right, and He'll be with you even until the consummation of the ages.  Yes, I've seen the lightning flash.  I've heard the thunder roll.  I've felt the sin breakers dashing, trying to conquer my soul, but I heard the voice of Jesus saying, still fight on.  He promised never to leave me alone, never alone.  No, never alone.

 

- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

November 5, 1967

 

 

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world.  Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

- Patanjali (Hinduism)

 

Greater than the tread of mighty armies is an idea whose time has come.

- Victor Hugo

 

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

"Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

- Margaret Mead

 

God created us to be born in love, raised in love, live our lives in the midst of love, and then die in the arms of love. So everything—our birth, our life, and our death— should give rise to gratitude. 

From birth we find ourselves sharing in the lives of our parents. We become participants in their lives. Our parents conceived us in love; in us they planted the flag of their love. We live our entire lives in accordance with the banner of our parents’ love. We should wave this banner each moment of our lives by loving our parents and our siblings.

The person who ignores the value of each and every moment to love will lose what is truly precious. Whether we win or lose is determined in a single moment. Every historical victory and every heavenly victory was determined in a moment. Therefore, a great person lives his or her life constantly aware of the precious value of each moment, for every particular moment is uniquely special. Such a person can be included in the ranks of the saints, and even become a divine son or daughter in Heaven and on earth.

From this perspective, it is vital to understand how to live in relationship with God’s will, in the contexts both of daily personal life and of historical time. Before we talk about our hope that God’s will be done and His Kingdom come, we need to assess the degree to which we are living in oneness with His Will.

The Bible records a 4,000-year Providence of Restoration that includes Noah’s family, Abraham’s family, Moses’ family and Jesus’ family. We see that the mistakes the members of those families committed were not events extending over a decade or several decades. Those who erred did so in a single moment, and the error of that one moment fated them and their descendants to a path of indemnity extending over a thousand years of history, and caused peoples and nations to fall into a bottomless pit of destruction.

That reveals the seriousness and importance of each moment of our lives. Even the eternal Kingdom of Heaven cannot exist apart from the single moment. Eternity does not begin when a person dies; it begins when a person comes to know Heaven’s will. If even a single moment should ever be skipped, or if there should be even the smallest hole in time, eternity will cease to exist.

As people of faith, it is good for us to dream of the eternal, but it is even more important that we understand how to eradicate evil and advance goodness in the context of our own life in today’s reality.  In other words, what you should fear most is not the judgment that will come in the Last Days, but whether you are living each moment of your daily life in oneness with God’s Will.  You should be concerned about how your life intersects with the course of God’s Will.  The truth is that the circumstances of our families, societies, nations and world do not align with our will. Therefore, we find ourselves dealing with all manners of difficulties, and we struggle back and forth across the turning point between good and evil.

Every single day we prepare and struggle to triumph over our circumstances.  Even in terms of our daily schedules, we often experience that we cannot do all the things that we planned to do in the morning.  This is all the more the case as we take on a greater public role. We find that we need proportionally greater determination and driving force in order to conclude each day of our lives with victory. The days add up to become months, then years. Ultimately, they add up to form our entire life. 

Neither we nor anyone in history can escape the confines of time.  Individuals, families, tribes, peoples, nations and the world move within one realm of time.  Each person has a certain purpose to fulfill during the course of his or her life. A person will strive for ten years, twenty years, or an entire lifetime in pursuit of this purpose. The larger the purpose, the stronger must be the person’s internal resolution and dedication. To accomplish his or her purpose, a person must possess an internal determination strong enough to overcome any adversity.

 

While living on earth, your every action and movement is recorded on your spirit self, without exception and with the public laws of Heaven as the standard.  Accordingly, you will enter the spirit world in the form of your spirit self, which has recorded your life on earth with 100 percent accuracy.  Your spirit will show plainly whether you have led a ripe life of goodness, or a wormy, rotten life of sinfulness.  What this means is that God will not judge you; you will be your own judge.  If a person is aware of this astonishing rule from Heaven, would the latter days of that person's life on earth be spent in selfishness and immorality, succumbing to all the temptations of Satan in pursuit of nothing but pleasure?  No, rather you should abstain form injuring and scarring your spirit, even at the risk of your earthly life.  Please bear this in mind: Whether you are bound for Heaven or Hell is determined by your thoughts, speech and behavior in each moment.

 

This does not imply, though, that the spirit leads its own life or that it can express true love through actions on its own.  Your spirit self grows, matures and finally becomes perfected only within your physical body, through an earthly lifetime of having actualized true love, bringing your mind and body into a smooth unified relationship of give and take.

 

Nevertheless, undeniably, your outer self and your inner self are in a constant relationship of conflict and struggle.  How much longer will you allow this fighting to continue?  Ten years?  A hundred years?  In contrast, there is undeniably a proper order for all forms of existence in the universe.  This indicates that God did not create human beings in this state of conflicted disorder.  You need to know that it is your duty and responsibility as a human being to dispel all temptations directed at your outer self, your physical body, perfect absolute sexual morality and be victorious in life by following the way of your inner  self--your conscience.  Heavenly fortune will be with those who lead their lives in such a way.  They will attain the perfection of their spirit selves.

 

The conscience takes precedence before God, teacher and parents.  God raised the human body centering on original conscience.  The conscience existed before birth, your teacher and before learning things.   You have to do as your conscience tells you to do.  We have disunity and struggle between our conscience and our body and because of this we are unable to be God's children.  Before you wish to control the universe you should be able to control yourself.  Your body is the enemy of the cosmos.

You should form families that God will miss and yearn to return to after He has been away. You should raise families to which He can come freely as a parent visiting His children. This is what it means to live in service to God. In such a family, God is the subject over your conscience, acting vertically. Following God as your vertical subject, your mind stands in the position of vertical subject over your body, bringing your mind and body into unity. That is where parental love, conjugal love, children’s love, and siblings’ love—in short, the four realms of love or the four realms of heart—are perfected. Only in such a family can the upper and lower, front and behind, left and right be connected as one and spherical motion ensue. This leads to God’s everlasting, model ideal families and nations, and His peace kingdom. If only the entire world were filled with such true families! It would be an orderly world where people govern themselves by the heavenly way and heavenly laws, with no need for lawyers, prosecutors or even judges.

- Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon

 

 

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

 

- Jesus Christ

Matthew 5:43-48

 

 

 

If no one answers to your call
go your own way alone.
 
If all are mute, oh! hapless one,
if all are filled with fear,
then open your heart in a fearless burst
and speak the truth alone.
 
If all go back, oh! hapless one,
when you are on your way
along the deep dark forest track,
if no one turns his face;
then walk the thorny path
with proudly bleeding feet,
with face set bravely forward
the bloodstained dust behind.
 
If no one lights the beacon
on a dark and stormy night;
if no one hears your knocking
and all men shut their doors;
then lose not heart oh! hapless one
but in the fiery thunder
set the torch of thy heart aflame
and burn in the dark alone.
 
- Rabindranath Tagore
Nobel Laureate in Literature
