Ok, so this morning while I was reading the DP (democracy and socialism) and researching through wikipedia, I found something:
This is a description of Thomas More's book, Utopia, I found on wiki.
"Only atheists are despised in Utopia, as they are seen as representing a danger to the state: since they do not believe in any punishment or reward after this life, they have no reason to share the communistic life of Utopia, and will break the laws for their own gain."
This book was mentioned in the Divine Principle.
The consummation of human history, the democratic sovereignty that God has built up will provide True Father with a position where he can influence- because people will naturally be inclined to dig deep and find their original minds when they are granted the "freedom of the people" and have room to start searching for their original natures.
Therefore, democracy will eventually turn into an ideal form of socialism in the future- not anything like the fake political model that Satan has set up in trying to imitate God's- but where people will naturally feel inclined to give and recieve with each other without overindulgence or conflict. This will be established when the ultimate purpose in life, God- who humans are still striving to find through the freedom granted by democracy and capitalism- is the center of that society.
Of course, most human beings don't know- yet- that they are searching for God, the majority only knows that they are striving towards achieving an ideal. Human beings will continue to stage revolutions and reform society until any traces of Satan's ideal world is completely eradicated and God's ideal world replaces it completely.
Thomas More's Utopia basically introduces that idea- through humanistic socialism. There are some things that I don't agree with in the book- there are slaves, and a monarchic society is established which is not exactly ideal. But overall it is an introduction to humanistic socialism, where people are generally unselfish and living happily. The glue that holds them together are the ideals which the people mutually share.
And the quote I typed above basically says, that the greatest glue that can hold the political model of socialism together is the requirement of God being at its center, with all of the members of society connected to that glue.
If you guys don't mind, and if this will really benefit you guys, I would like to share some things I realize. If there's anything confusing or if you have any questions in mind about this, feel free to make a sincere inquiry.
I really hope this can get to you. I hope you can read this whole thing. It's not even that long.
We obviously aren't going through the same spiritual struggles that our parents had to go through in order to graft themselves onto True Family's lineage. True Family and our 1st gen's extreme devotion and sacrifice to God resulted in the creation of a new generation with no original sin- us.
We could have been alive during any other time period in history, but instead God chose us to be born as the second generation of this movement, coinciding our lives with the life of True Father, the Messiah, with no original sin. We could have been one of those wasted lives in previous wars, or in a languishing third world country, where our life was cut short without even ONCE knowing God. What if I was born as a slave? Or in a family of murderers?
But instead, what do we have? What is the extent of the blessings we have received? We have the Principle, we have Father's words. And most importantly, we have the foundation of True Parents to stand on, and an eternally perpetuating lineage of True Family of immeasurable value we can all be a part of. And we have so many precious 2nd/3rd generation brothers and sisters to reciprocate God's love and find sanctuary in.
So with all this blessing comes responsibility. You've probably heard this before. But I've never understood this concept clearer than I do now.
We're not witnessing life-or-death style in communist countries, locked up in concentration camps, or fighting extreme persecution like our 1st generation has. We aren't "suffering", in contrast to our 1st generation in our movement, or even more so True Family and the many saints and sages that have suffered to pave the path for us.
BUT. We are now living in a time and culture, here in America, where we can easily become complacent. There are so many blessings bestowed upon us, like education, family, technology, shelter, and 3 meals a day. We have the opportunity to go out and pursue artistic passions, like music, visual arts, martial arts, sports, nature, marine biology, the wonders of science, and so much more.
God worked so hard throughout all of history to get us to this point, where his precious children could finally enjoy the creation He worked so hard to build. To pursue the Three Great Blessings, and live as if the fall never happened.
The fall did happen though, and like I said earlier, the culture we live in still needs so much work. With all these blessings, we can develop a tendency to become complacent. We can lose sight of God when we witness the disgusting culture that most of our generation is entrenched in, if we are not strong enough.
I see many of my precious BC brothers and sisters falling into this culture of promiscuity, drugs, and excessive hedonism. Of course this is in varying degrees, but I am describing the extreme end. They hate their parents, hate this movement and everything about it. God's heart is crushed seeing this.
I don't blame them. Most of us are clear drops of water dropped into a muddy bucket, and somehow we have to have the resolve to remain crystal clear, untainted.
Just like God saw the risk of Adam and Eve falling with Lucifer in the Garden of Eden, I believe that God already imagined this risk in mind- of us becoming victimized by such dirty culture- upon bestowing all these precious blessings to us.
But I believe that he still gave this opportunity to us to pursue our 3 Great Blessings… because He loves us so much. And He trusts us to resemble him and dig deep to find our original minds, just like He did with Adam and Eve. As we are His children, just like any parent, God does not even want to imagine that we would hurt him so much. He would imagine that we would eventually resemble Him and enjoy those blessings in moderation, share it with the world, and understand the true value behind them- such as Absolute Sex.
You've probably heard this before- either from Jr. STF, or any other medium God has desperately tried to reach you through- but we NEED to share our blessings. THE TRUTH IS RIGHT HERE. We have so much to dig from. Most of Father's words have been disseminated over the internet- and speaking of internet, we have various means to connect with central figures through online sources. We have all the resources necessary to dig deep into the Heart of God! Let's utilize all of these incredible resources that our parents and True Parents have worked so hard to attain, please.
And with that, let's share those blessings. And I'm not even talking about anyone other than bcs yet. Our BCs need to be educated. Jr. STF is an incredible effort to raise God's bc leaders in this time and era where materialism and moral decline is dominating our society. But the workshops in themselves cannot single-handedly take care of everything. The point of Jr. STF is that we all stick together, beyond workshops, and collectively dive into the words of Father, from 1945 up to present.
As long as we have this thing called internet, we should keep making effort to organize all our Culture of Heart seekers, and reciprocate our passion for God and understanding of His immense love for us. I believe in the power of numbers, and I want us to all stick together so even if one person becomes uninspired, there will be another person who is assiduously working hard and proliferating God's love on Earth that will rekindle his/her fire.
There is just so much we can do. Sometimes we can get disillusioned by the world around us, and possibly even the state of our leaders in the movement. But that's not the issue, don't you see? It's all about YOU. It's about your individual conditions of sincerity for God that will truly bring about that change. It's about how much YOU want to help God.
I hope we can all get addicted to the culture of heart- and I hope that we can eventually attain the heart of our 1st gen parents- then True Family- then True Parents- and ultimately God, to desperately make ourselves God's representations on Earth.
Let's help each other out, let's be the sons and daughters God envisioned us to be. Let's save our brothers and sisters who are languishing in this rotten culture of America. Even a couple words of sincerity and true love can profoundly influence a BC- because their lineage is undeniable, and their original minds will always shine through. Eventually we can overturn this rotten culture. We have all the potential in the world to do so.
