You and I

Picture from underneath my baby red-maple tree!

Finally, the soil supports creation under my love

It’s not under scorn-love besides the midst of evil

Creation rejoices with the children of God.

In slow ways and in patience we call our wins.

I see God’s stakes and I have not forsaken him.

Do you see him too?

Then we are the same, you and I.

You and I forever. You and I.

-Somiya

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

“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

Freedom to Forgive

I have sweet memories of my mother. I do not see the evil in her that Satan wants me to see. I have been in the position to forgive her whenever she has been honest with apology to me. Please have compassion for her. Our parents are brothers in Jesus Christ.

Some I know and others I do not know but I forgive you all if you have even thought one bad thought of me, and that is a small thing. I want peace. Let us live in peace.

Sincerely,

Somiya

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

Michael J. Chapman is a Saint

– He gave his whole life, every drop of blood and energy to God when True Father was alive

– With his pennies earned he was able to give me everything I needed and wanted!

– He was happy when I was happy.

– He never abused my mother! Not even once.

– He could not control my mother and she beat me. Yes she did. Yet she loves me too.

– My parents respected and honored the Holy Blessing of God and they loved me very much…too much stress, and confusion, loneliness, and exclusion came along with the job…perhaps, and that made it very difficult for all the wonderful things but they are still married. According to Hyung Jin Moon they are fallen because of HAK JA HAN (!!!!!!); accordingly, I have said that my father is a coward for not standing up for True Father’s word posthumously. Yet it is undeniable that this man, Michael J. Chapman has lived his whole entire life for the sake of God’s Kingdom Come and His Second Coming of Jesus in Sun Myung Moon and the Heavenly Establishment of True Parents. He is a saint in the name of JESUS!

– I am greatly hurt by the division in this church

– My dad is Sun Myung Moon’s servant, best friend, and son of God.

– I love him very much. With all my heart!!!

Ruined Dedication

I am happy to begin a new dedication to the ‘Cover to Cover’ article and video series that I will share with you here on DPconversations.com.

Dear Readers,

First of all, thank you for subscribing to DPconversations.com and my YouTube channel. In the beginning, I had produced over three or four hundred videos before I had the horrible feeling to delete them all. Then I began again. Now the couple hundred videos that I have shared are privatized. It took some time for me to see myself, in thinning old clothes and a face that just got older, not going anywhere. The objective of DPconversations is and has always been to share the truth of God.

I had hoped to create a strong connection with like minded leaders at Santuary Church when I met with Hyung Jin Moon and Yeonah Lee Moon in the winter of 2014. Yet the way the relationship between that couple and myself unfurled was truly unexpected. Yeonah had reprimanded me after my very first service ever at their church for “not having enough sex” with my husband. Mind you, she is someone I had never talked with previously…and I had barely established any kind of understanding with her about my marriage or my love life! I was in shock. It all went downhill from there. Loudly, in the public eating space where all the church members had gathered to eat lunch, Yeonah Lee Moon has utterly disgraced my face. People, of course, followed Yeonah’s example and I found myself very well shunned and belittled.

Despite the unexpected opposition from a source where I had hoped to find brotherhood and sisterhood I continued forward with DPconversations. Yet the plan was never to do it alone. Eventually, Yeonah Lee Moon started her own YouTube called LionQueensTV channel apart from my efforts on DPconversations. I am at once crushed and pleased that she has gone forward in this way. After all, any effort for God is better than none at all. I felt a gentle calling from God to stop DPconversations for a while and that is when I discovered Yeonah’s videos online. My true hope was that someone would work with me together in strength to show the world the beauty and truth of God. I see that no one, not a soul, has stepped forward to work with me. Whether from Sanctuary Church, the Han Group, Christians…etc., I sense a great resistance against my independent love and understanding of God.

Since no one has stepped forward to work with me I have decided to simply acknowledge that their thorns have pierced me deeply. God is not finished with me yet. I am happy to begin a new dedication to the ‘Cover to Cover’ article and video series that I will share with you here on DPconversations.com. Thank you for understanding. Please make sure to subscribe!
