Chapter 3: Wonmo Pyeongae Scholarship Institute
Within the name Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation (Wonmo Pyeongae Scholarship Institute), won (圓) is the Chinese character for round and mo (母) is the Chinese character for mother. Everyone should be well-rounded without and sharp angles. We should all be like a mother who embraces the different personalities in her family to create harmony. Wonmo means a mother of mothers. If there is something that gets in the way, one should be able to expand or contract accordingly, roll here and there to make a well-round circle, and finally return to one's original position. Only by doing so can we resemble Heavenly Parent. Pyeongae (平愛) means a universe filled with true love by caring for people in need and for those in disadvantaged situations with true love, and achieving a horizontal equality that has on highs or lows. Seeds of true love must be sowed for the tree of true love and peace to sprout and grow. The Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation must diligently run forward under the vision of achieving a peaceful world centered on Heavenly Parent. It must take the lead in realizing a world based on the culture of heart by supporting talented young people, creating a culture of service and sharing, and running programs that contribute to society.

Your purpose in studying and attending school should not be about entering a good university or securing a high-paying job. Your most important goal must be to complete the three great blessings given to us by God and become a person that practices loving God, loving people and loving your nation. Only when you gain knowledge, skills and ability on that foundation can you realize a great dream. The Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation will actively support you in aligning your dreams with those of Heavenly Parent so that you can become even more capable people. (2014.02.10, Cheon Jeong Gung)
You need to be grateful about the fact that you are living in the same environment as True Parents. Hence, you are happy people, and the more you share that happiness, the greater it becomes.
True Parents are the True Parents of humanity. You are living in a time when the providential history of restoration through indemnity has been victoriously completed and the new Cheon Il Guk opened. Therefore, that there are people who do not know of True Parents at such a time is something we are responsible for. Regardless of where you are, remember that you are in an environment where you can stand as filial sons and daughters, Cheon Il Guk loyal citizens who testify about True Parents and spread their teachings. However, since you must still study, please make sure you diligently prepare yourselves, from your respective positions, to achieve our dream. (2015.02.28, CheongShim International Youth Center)
The Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation is investing more than ten billion won in scholarships to cultivate many talented young people. They must be raised around the clock so that they can grow beautifully and upright within our protection. A period of ten months in a mother's womb is needed for a life to be born. Can a baby, born after those ten months, walk in a day? The baby needs time. Therefore, the Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation must actively, scientifically, and psychologically, and in all aspects, perfectly equip itself with a system and diligently raise the students to whom it has given opportunities. We cannot be satisfied with only a few events a year. Furthermore, the central nations of the providence—Korea, Japan and the United States—must participate in this initiative. We are not doing this because we have a lot of money. These funds are really True Parents' blood, sweat and tears. There are many tearful stories in raising this amount. Even outside, major companies support students with scholarships. In the end, it is to make them into their people. The students must work for the company or serve the company for a period of time after graduation as part of the company's conditions. This is how they bring people into their organization.

I know that those of you who are receiving scholarships today have dreams. What are your dreams? You, who are working closely with the True Parents, should take the lead in fulfilling Heavenly Parent's wish, Heavenly Parent's dream. Each of you will have your own dream. However, any dream centered on yourself will have a limit. Yet if you understand True Parents' teachings and Heavenly Parent's circumstances and expand your dreams accordingly, you will become historic figures.
Let me tell you about a book I read when I was young. In the Netherlands the level of the sea is higher than the level of the land, so all the people are wary of the sea. One day, as a boy was coming back from an errand for his parents, he saw water seeping through the dike that had been built to hold back the sea water. He ran to the dike wall. There was no time to call anybody to help. He tried to close the hole with mud and stones, but it was difficult to stop the water from coming through, so he stuck his fist in the hole to stop the water, and waited for someone to come. However, it was wintertime, so he was nearly frozen. When he did not come home, his parents went to look for him. When they and the other villagers found him there, he was still plugging the hole in the dike despite the cold. Think about it. His dream was not for himself. He was a young boy who cared about protecting his country. So his story is recorded in the history of his country.
Today, your dreams should resemble those of True Parents. In the beginning, God dreamed a great dream, after which He created all of the created world, including human beings. However, as you know through the Divine Principle, Adam and Eve, the first human ancestors, fell. However, the natural world did not fall. Despite that, because of the greed of fallen people, up until today their recklessness and ignorance has been destroying nature. Serious climate problems are arising all over the world.
I hope each of you will pursue and develop your dream in your chosen field, and bring healing to the earth. For this you will need specialized knowledge and expertise. Then you must share what you have learned and teach those who have not completed their education. To do this you must lead by example and think about how you can save our polluted Earth. If you all join forces, follow True Parents' teachings and live up to them, your hopes and your dreams can be realized. In order to make that happen, each of you must become the best in your field. I will support you unreservedly to help you achieve that. (2016.02.14, CheongShim International Youth Center)
