The one who cherishes love most is God.
In Today’s 훈독회 Hoon Dok Hae (HDH) reading, I did get the audio to fully record everything I said but the record will sound off center. Click here to listen to this morning’s DPconversations broadcast! I promise, it will get better. Please bear with me.
Whilst I was reading True Father’s words I really did not wish to interrupt his thought on the podcast. Although I spoke minimally, I would like to share my interest in His passage that discusses the nature of love.
“What did God mean when He said, ‘I am love.’ He was teaching us to cherish love by night and day, while working, resting, dancing or crying. In like manner, He could say, ‘I have love, I have love in its entirety.’ Having love in its entirety would mean that everything was invested into it. The one who cherishes love most is God. He has all of that love, yet once we have tasted it we are unable to let go of it even in death.”
Heavenly Father began the creation of the universe with investment. True Father declines the limited view of political science and says that it was not randomness nor some kind of perverted expansion of species through the millennium but only love that initiated creation. He claims that time exists through eternity because, after all, time is just a component of our physical world.
I am no scholar but if the idea of love and the question of whether love is the starting point of the universe tickles your curiosity, please keep listening to my shared public readings of the Cheon Seong Gyeong! I do stumble here and there at times and I apologize if listening is a little cumbersome. Surely, episode four will show some improvements. Meanwhile, please welcome episode three.
