My Personal Blog

Dear Readers,

Thank you for taking this fantastic journey with me since I posted my first DPconversations video six years ago on July 11, 2014, to the incredible “Breaking of the Silence” internet sweep of Pastor Hyung Jin Moon, to this moment when I claim DPconversations as simply my personal blog rather than a gung-ho effort to evangelize the world; Hyung Jin Moon’s got that. I do not earn my bread and butter through efforts made here on my blog, though, I’d sure like to! I also dislike donations more than 100%…I guess I was just never cut out for the 2020 church life.

I have lived at church properties all my life. You can find my autobiography “Living Stone” on amazon.com. I have been raised on an extremely minute amount of donations that trickled into my parents laps for the basics like food…and occasionally a winter jacket and pair of shoes. I’m one of the lucky ones who kept her faith.

God is an amazing God. In 2014, I saw no church center and just a bunch of crumbling buildings that used to be places of congregation when Sun Myung Moon lived. He died in 2012 and my heart seared with so much pain at his passing. I struggled with my faith and emerged as the DPconversations girl. Later I met Hyung Jin and Yeonah Moon at their Sanctuary Church for a Wednesday prayer meeting. Several Sundays later Hyung Jin Moon broke the silence and everything made sense.

Nothing has been the same after the crowing of Mrs. Hyun Shil Kang and True Father as the Cosmic level Perfect True Parents. I have truly wrestled with the idea that Hak Ja Han had indeed fallen but so she has and that is not our fault but her decision alone.

We all find ourselves sequestered into units of property rentals and owned parcels that appear to guide the lines of our freedom but how long with that last? What a shame it is that we have only one other major Presidential Candidate Joe Biden who cannot even bear to get a sentence out or even stare long enough into the camera lens for some decent eye contact. America and her freedoms, yes, your stability, is shaking. Everything is on the line now and this is the time now to forget everything else and fight down the devil who is about to steal it all……!

DPconversations served its purpose. It helped a disillusioned Queen Yeonah to find her grip in reality. It helped to put Hyung Jin Moon into his rightful place as the King of Cheon Il Guk. It helped people to see the backwashed leaders who wear two faces as they yap up the attention and promenade of glory between the members and the Lord. Never, please never, take Rev. Kwak’s word as Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s word. Kwak is his own man and Sun Myung Moon an entirely different person all together. Trust me, I know.

I love you guys so much….even all you stupid idiots, like Yeonah. Please be well. I’ll keep up my blog and such but I can’t promise you anything. Don’t donate to me.

Sincerely,

Somiya

Dear Readers,

It’s been some time since I dropped a poem here on DPconversations.com. I hope you enjoyed “You & I”. I am currently waiting for the video to upload to youtube.com/DPconversations and that has given me a little time to give you a little love-nudge in the right direction. How are you all doing? I have missed you.

Recently, I have committed my little chubby body to sit down every Saturday so that I may dig up a golden conversation with you on the Holy Bible and the Holy Word of the Completed Testament of God Sun Myung Moon at the Second Coming of Jesus via my youtube channel called DPconversations. Click here to see my channel. Whew! That was a mouthful.

Finally, I have a regular routine down with the truth again so I can relax a little and share a colloquial article with you rather than just straight notes. Today’s discussion of the Divine Principle healed me a little and I hope it heals you too. We all need healing, don’t deny it. For instance, did you know that the force of power is not just in love but also in principle and that these are two distinct kinds of power? Yet, freedom does not come without the principle of creation centered on God simply because it is intrinsically tied to our existence that we have freedom! I discuss this in Today’s video, which, is 35 minutes long…but give it a try. I know I’m not alone by myself talking to the wall when you are on the other side of all this.

If you like what you see and hear and read then my effort has not been in vain. Let me know that you appreciate my work in a small way…and I will be back again next Saturday. I will announce the upcoming video next Friday evening on Twitter. My twitter is @somiyachapman. “6. Cover to Cover | DPconversations” video will cover the content of our beloved Divine Principle from page seventy-six to page eighty-eight. Have a Blessed day.

Sincerely with Love,

Somiya

Notes on pp. 54-65 of the Divine Principle:

View Video Discussion Click Here

“If the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was not a material fruit, then it must be a symbol which represents something else.” (Divine Principle, p. 54)

Reasons the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is a Symbol

  1. Matthew 15:11 – Jesus refuted the idea that a literal fruit caused the fall.
  2. Scientific proof shows that your eating does not change DNA within cells: our genetic attributes, especially original sin, is not something caused by a food good: lineage is not determined by the fruit that we eat.
  3. Adam and Eve had everything in the Garden of Eden. They wouldn’t have risked their lives for a bite of an apple. “Rather, it must have been something so extraordinarily stimulating that even the fear of death did not deter them from grasping it.” (Divine Principle, p. 54)
  4. God has compassion and cares for humankind. He is not evil.

The fact that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is a symbol is very clear. Then as the two trees stand together in the Garden of Eden, the Tree of Life must also be a symbol and True Father wants us to understand the meaning of them both.

The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground – trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:9

“What was the hope of Adam during the time he was immature and growing toward perfection? He must have hoped to become a man who would realize God’s ideal of creation by growing to perfection without falling. The tree of life in fact symbolizes a man who has fully realized the ideal of creation. Perfected Adam was to be this ideal man. The tree of life thus symbolizes perfected Adam.” (Divine Principle, p. 55)

Revelation 22:14

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.

“But Adam fell, and God blocked his path to the tree with a flaming sword. Ever since, despite the best efforts of fallen people to restore the ideal of creation, the tree of life has remained an unattainable dream.” (Divine Principle, p. 55)

The conclusion is that the trees – the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil – represented a man and woman who fully realized the ideal of creation.

Satan is a fallen angel. He is eternally existent but he had been condemned by God to be a serpent. His illusion over people of their greatness in evil is actually so that he can use them to his benefit as a spiritual being who decided to be God himself.

Lucifer is beset by “eternal fire” this means that his crimes continue forever to break him down although he is meant to be the angel of the most high God.

2 Peter 2:4

God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of nether gloom. (Divine Principle p. 58) Also view Jude 6-7

Somiya C. Gabb on DPconversations

Hello Readers,

I hope you have had a good week so far. I tweeted a while back that with every video I would get progressively more and more beautiful. With God’s love, beauty is the natural reflection even in those of us who can barely compare with the beauties of the world. We each have a responsibility to love God and to believe in and understand the truth.

Truth illuminates the innermost desires of the spirit mind.

p. 49, Divine Principle

Today, I have no notes for you as I simply pulled out the video recorder and shared my thoughts on a covering of pp. 43-54 of the Divine Principle with you on DPconversations. The quote above is a sparkly gem. How beautiful and lovely are our desires when we are centered on God? During the time of creation our Heavenly Father did not force us to grow. He gave us a choice to fruition to completion.

Here the question is of kindness! It is truly a wonder that in this merciless and cruel world, God’s love would echo into the chambers of our hearts so that we could see ourselves anew in his truth. What a wonder! All we can say in response to that is, “I love you God!” That is why the truth is something we love and cherish.

I hope that your week, moving forward, will be of peace and understanding. I stay away from blogs like howwelldoyouknowyourmoon.tumblr.com and such because there are many things that lots of people would like to say about Rev. Sun Myung Moon. I am a primary resource but I am not the reasoning behind your faith. I am simply the presenter. I do not want to break you, see? Have faith in God and in his words from him to you.

If I have opened the curtains so that the light should shine through to your soul, well then it is simply my pleasure to be your friend in the name of Jesus and no more. Have a Blessed Day.

Sincerely,

Somiya C. Gabb

Notes on Divine Principle in this episode
pp. 15-31


What is real to you? Resultant Reality vs. Causal Reality

  • Reality of Creation is a reflection of God, its creator.
    • Yang and Yin; scientific examples
    • Plants – stamen and pistil, Animals – Male and female, Molecules – Positive and negative ions.
  • Result of a spherical existence between dual characteristics.
    • Internal nature and external form
    • “The body is a visible reflection of the invisible mind.” (p.17)
    • Plant seed has all the DNA in its cells to have a unique existence if given water, soil, and sunlight. Yet beyond physical science here is an invisible component to vegetation that purposes the physical plants to grow. This energy can be understood as the invisible mind of plants.

Is God a Woman? Subject (Yang/Masculine) Nature of God

  • Human mind directs the body. The internal nature, the mind, is subject over the external form, the body.
    • Inclination of humanity, atomic particles and molecules cause them to have a certain behavior of serving the purpose of unity and growth. “For energy to form particles, it, too, must possess an internal nature which directs it to assume specific forms.” (p.18)
  • As we see directly in the way we function, the internal nature is subject/Yang over the body/Yin. “Ultimate Cause” of energy is God. The Ultimate Cause is the one and only God that we can understand as the Subject of our minds. As we are created in his image, God too has an original internal nature and original external form. Original Internal Nature can be said to be the cause of all energy, the Original External Form of God. John 1:1-3 “the Word was with God, and the Word was God,” explains that God’s mind is the mind before and beyond all minds. Therefore, God is made of dual characteristics in harmony. (That is why we call Him Heavenly Father, rather than Heavenly Mother.) “According to the Principle of Creation, the fact that everything created through the Word has dual characteristics shows that the Word itself consists of dual characteristics.” (p. 21)
    • In reflection of God’s dual characteristics in a unified relationship we humankind are made as man and woman in order to harmonize. Gen. 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” This is why in Genesis 2:22 God created woman from the rib of Adam. Internal results in external.
    • “Hence, the universe is a perfect organic body that moves only according to God’s purpose of creation.” (p.19)

What am I to God? Individual Embodiments of truth in image and symbol.

  • Two classes: God needs both male and female to resemble his original internal nature and original external form. Each individual is a substantial object partner to God and resemble Him by reflection of His original internal nature and original external form with our own minds and bodies, so within us too are both yang and yin qualities, as God has.
  • Image and Symbol – Humankind and all of Creation.
    • “The relationship between God and the universe is similar to that between internal nature and external form.” (p. 20)

I’ll tell you what God is in three words. Universal Prime Energy – “It is the origin of all energies and forces that allow created beings to exist.” p. 21

How is God real in my life? Give and Take Action

  • God and humanity
    • mind and body
    • male and female
  • The Fall
    • Satan and humanity

Everyone is important in a family, starting with Mom and Dad. Four Position Foundation

  • Origin Division Union Action.
    • Three Object purpose
    • Root of the number twelve – twelve object partners
  • Physical shape of FPF
    • centrifugal – giving
    • centripetal – receiving
    • solar system
    • electrons revolve around protons
  • “Human beings are the center of all created things, which are embodied object partners to God’s dual characteristics in symbol.” p.28
    • Three great blessings. Genesis 1:28
    • create harmony of the whole cosmos

The Kingdom of Heaven on Earth as it is in Heaven. Omnipresence of God

  • Everything has the purpose of having dual characteristics in harmony
  • “In a world where God’s purpose of creation has been fulfilled, all individual beings embody God’s original internal nature and original external form and initiate spherical movements to build the foundation for God’s governance. God is thus omnipresent.” p. 31

Introduction. Cover to Cover Be Useful! | DPconversations

Joyful perfect love

To Be Useful

I have no more tears

when I think of you

I’ve a friend all blue

It’s not so bad, have cheer

Joyful perfect love

The fun you bring to me

Wrench me not from Him

To fall from clouds on trucks.

Where your mind lingers, I knoweth not

But you have found my heart

You have put it in your threads

So we are not apart.

Joy is in relationships

True Parents’ transparent realm

In Jesus’ name redeemed from sin

Complete with love, behold!

truth is freedom

discipline ~ strength

origin foundation purpose

Now Come!

-Somiya


This is a ‘Cover to Cover’ article. It’s actually my take on the Introduction of the Divine Principle. I am having some problems with my computer, recently. I couldn’t bring myself to type out an article of the Intro to the Divine Principle so my technical problems served as a legitimate excuse to delay my work. I have been painfully mulling over a good delivery of the text for a few days. The Introduction itself is self-explanatory and very beautiful to read.

After ripping my mind apart for the best way to share the Intro with you, I decided to give it heart-to-heart with a poem. My reflection on being useful to God started with an obvious answer, that we become responsible men and women who can create His Royal Family on earth as it is in Heaven! Yet the human life is not entirely in the love-making phase. Of course, there is childhood, and the time when we are not mating.

I came to the conclusion that we are most useful to God when we are filled with joy. The act of sex is usually seen as the Fall but scientifically and from God’s untainted perspective, it is the most holy and miraculous love. Jesus and True Parents are the structure of God’s truth, not of your sins. The redemption of sin and the establishment of the restored Adam and Eve has now been fulfilled in True Parents. Sex, ideally, brings the most joy to God. People perverted love at its core with Satan and he owns you unless you choose to serve God and attend His perfect love with your life.

His Inaction

Inspired to call her but never to speak

Had to learn yet more but so no one could see

But then!

You wasted her time.

Be gone from me you little cheap!

Foolish scrap from the hands of thieves!

How cold:

Knowledge without compassion.

“[He] love(s) no one,” so self-convinced

A sink drain blocked by mineral composites

To learn!?

His affects mere mockery!

To her no profit at the expense of life

One life to live, now strapped for time.

Nothing.

His inaction upon an empty line.


Feel free to get the free download of the Divine Principle above. It’s as much as I can give you, as I have downloaded it off of www.sanctuary-pa.org, myself. Likewise, I’ve also posted the Cheon Seong Gyeong and the Peace Messages.

Don’t wait on me to take you through the Divine Principle again…I already did that with my YouTube videos–for five years! Now, they are mostly not public anymore. Were they working for you? Maybe you should read my poem let me know.

Preface. Cover to Cover of the Divine Principle: The Fundamental Cornerstone | DPconversations

Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon with Hyo Won Eu

Cover to Cover

It is my aim to go through the Divine Principle with you from start to finish. This is the first article and video of a new series on DPconversations.com called Cover to Cover. It is important to understand the truth in fullness and I hope that you enjoy exploring the content of this work of Sun Myung Moon with me.

There are many different views that people have expressed about Sun Myung Moon and his life on earth. The fundamental understanding of Sun Myung Moon is the work that he himself did, regardless of what other people have to say about it. The content of the Divine Principle cannot be identified by anyone else as their word. Really, to know a man, the best resource is himself, is it not? To understand Sun Myung Moon and True Parents as established by Jesus at His second coming, we have to first know the Divine Principle.

Please view the video that goes hand in hand with this article. Click the link.

Within the Preface of the Divine Principle we see the great persistence of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon to share the Divine Principle with humanity. It took his entire life to finally canonize an official text that would eventually be included in the eight great texts of the Completed Testament. It is the main text of his teaching.

Scientific studies of Cornelius and Caspi have concluded that the perception of self is more of an external result rather than an intrinsic internal belief of self. The study did not move beyond calculable data but it led to the theoretical understanding that a carpenter is not born a carpenter but is molded to become one by external influences. Likewise, the West Point Military Academy of the United States of America, though it even has an honor code does not mean that all who attend are honorable. Thus, it isn’t always one’s surrounding influences that determine a person’s belief of self. Furthering the idea of self-identification is the practice of yoga, or mind and body unity. Yet mind and body unity without an understanding of the highest mind or cause of energy, is simply impossible.

It is important to study the Divine Principle so that people can come out of ignorance and hopeless dead-ends in order to understand the highest mind: God. Humankind now, through True Parents, have a clear understanding of God that can unite the most internal mind with external scientific study. I will not go into the theoretics with you now. A multitude of science is just waiting to be explored with this truth. Instead, I will show you the rock, the Exposition of the Divine Principle, that the truth exists and that it is available to you.
