Once a UTS professor, a fundamentalist Baptist, asked True Father what is the Holy Spirit. True Father’s answer was, “a feminine green mist.” The professor was taken aback, and asked, “Reverend Moon, where did you come up with that?” True Father said, “I made it up. You can do the same.”
Another UTS professor, who was an authentically eminent theologian, was ablaze with the desire to express the Divine Principle to the western Christian world. When he asked Father for permission. Father told him, “Don’t do that. I want you to witness to America’s college students with such fervor that you die of exhaustion and all the world’s youth make a pilgrimage to place flowers on your grave.”
“Don’t do that. I want you to witness to America’s college students with such fervor that you die of exhaustion and all the world’s youth make a pilgrimage to place flowers on your grave.”
Once, in a literal answer to a literal prayer, True Father stood me up and changed my mission. The next day, he and True Mother chuckled because I thought I was supposed to drop everything and start the new mission. He said, check with me about it in a year.
Once True Father asked me to stand up beside him and give a testimony about tuna fishing. I did so, filled with what he called the tuna spirit. After a few minutes, I turned to him and whispered, “How long should I talk?”
Now, what was he to answer? “Talk for five more minutes.” “Talk for 37 minutes.” “You’ve talked enough.” I had asked him a stupid question. His mind, though, was all love. Without a second thought he smiled, nodded, and said, “You can talk forever.”
“We are to be living embodiment of True Parents. True Mother is living out her days with us. We are the legacy. We are the living textbooks.”
The Apostle John concluded his Gospel with the words, “This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.” John was a living embodiment of Jesus. From the cross, Jesus told his mother, Mary, to live out her days with John.
We are to be the living embodiment of True Parents. True Mother is living out her days with us. We are the legacy. We are the living textbooks—who testify to these things and write them down, and whose testimony is true.
