Part 6: A Model for the Ideal World Centering on HyoJeong CheonWon
Chapter 1: HyoJeong Cheon Won and the Model of the Ideal Kingdom of Heaven
The meaning of HyoJeong CheonWon
I am thinking of creating the environment where the 7.3 billion people of the world can visit CheongPyeong to honor the lives of True Parents, and feel the love of our Heavenly Parent. This land is where the True Parents were born. It is a place that must become the Garden of Eden. Therefore, I want to make it into a place that automatically attracts people's hearts. (2016.02.17, Heaven G Main Shop)
You know the meaning of HyoJeong Cheon Won. CheonWon means Heaven's Garden. The 6,000-year history of the providence of restoration through indemnity was like a long winter night. After 6,000 years, through the True Parents, the spring came when Heavenly Parent's dream, True Parents' dream and the hope of humankind could be realized. This time is precisely that kind of time. The HyoJeong CheonWon complex will become different every day, every year. People will come to this place and see and experience our Heavenly Parents' dream and True Parents' providence being realized. When making the kingdom of heaven on earth that can realize Heavenly Parent's dream and the hopes of all people, what should you do? You should have a dream, study hard, do your very best in the work you are responsible for, and contribute to the development of the Hyo Jeong Cheon Won complex. (2017.02.05, CheongShim International Youth Center)
We must expand our environment on earth. Also, the Unification movement must become the model for all humanity in all respects. What I am trying to do by creating the HyoJeong Cheon Won complex that Heaven has been wishing for is to show a model of the kingdom of heaven on earth that can become one united world.
Then everyone in the world will want to come here to visit. Just as True Father said, there will be an unending line of people and large ships coming across the ocean to visit. We need to make it somewhere people will yearn to come, a place of hope for humanity, a place where God dwells, the place where True Parents live and breathe. This means we need to create an environment that is ready to welcome them. The first step is for this nation to fulfill the mission for which it was called, to be God's homeland.
This is an honor Heaven has granted our country. We must fulfill our responsibility. Swiss soldiers are ready to risk their lives for the restoration of their country, so what should Cheon II Guk heroes do? They must risk their lives to build God's nation and realize one family under God. Therefore, all of you here must become historic figures. If you invest yourself wholeheartedly in teaching and testifying to True Parents, you will bring great happiness to Heavenly Parent. (2016.08.22, Cheon Jeong Gung)
The model of the ideal kingdom of heaven
True Parents live in Cheon Jeong Gung which is the center of the HyoJeong CheonWon complex. And in this estate there are many institutions. These institutions must become one and move forward for one purpose. The place that monitors them day by day and can give directions is Cheon Jeong Gung. Therefore I have installed the entire world headquarters here. The museum has merged with the world headquarters. (2016.06.01, Cheon Jeong Gung)
HyoJeong CheonWon is not an ordinary area of the Korean peninsula. Here, in Cheon Jeong Gung, we are directly connected to the Cheon Jeong Gung that is in heaven. Each day you report in prayer to Heaven. If that report prayer is centered on the Will , in can be transmitted reported immediately. It is that kind of place. Just as the Vatican is Catholicism's global headquarters and has the form of a nation, this place is the central headquarters that is leading the providence with all the businesses and institutions becoming one to directly attend Heavenly Parent and True Parents and to realize that Will. (2016.07.07, Cheon Jeong Gung)
HyoJeong CheonWon is the HyoJeong garden of Heaven, the HyoJeong garden of Eden. What is the correct mind and attitude for the people who live here and who work in the organizations here?
A united world is what our Heavenly Parent has desired for a long time, and what humankind has desired is also a united world with a true owner, true parents at its center. What would the people who live in this world look like? It is a dream that could not even be imagined for the past 6,000 years in the fallen world, a dream that has now been created by the people that our Heavenly Parent created, after the creation of the heavens and the earth. Through True Parents you have received the marriage Blessing to stand as the true children in the place that humankind has awaited and desired. Now you are moving forward as the citizens of Cheon Il Guk. As blessed families, you have the responsibility to teach the 7.3 billion citizens of the world about True Parents will until all of them come to attend True Parents.
In HJ CheonWon, we must show all humankind the garden of Eden that God has dreamed of, heaven on earth. The people who live here must be united in a vertically aligned "high noon" life, casting no shadow.
With one mind and one will, returning joy and glory to Heaven, we must do our best to create the one united world that our Heavenly Parent has been longing for.
You are all one. You have one goal. In order to achieve that goal, you must have a heart of gratitude for the great blessings we have received from Heaven. In truth, you are not fully qualified to be citizens of Cheon II Guk, but I have opened the path for you to develop and move forward. I am giving you the opportunity to overcome and to make up for your weaknesses.
As people who live in the center of the garden of Eden, you must become the central model, the standard for the entire world. You should live in such a way that both our members and other citizens from all of the countries in the world will look at you and say, "I should live and act like that person.” (2016.07.01, Cheon Jeong Gung)
Chapter 2: CheonJi SunHak Won
The organization of CheonJi SunHak Won
Since creating the CheongPyeong complex, True Parents have had a dream. It is for the citizens of Cheon Il Guk who will come in the future. Now you are living together with True Parents, but one day our earthly lives will come to an end. There is something that I want to complete during my lifetime. I want to be able to say, "This is what one united world with Heavenly Parent and True Parents at its center looks like,” and show it to people. In doing this, the visual aspect is very important. At CheonJi SunHak Won, True Parents' life courses and their achievements, and the life that the citizens of Cheon Il Guk must lead in order to come close to True Parents will be depicted.
True Parents should have the top status in the world. If they do not, it will make Heavenly Parent feel sad and disappointed. We will make the main hall of CheonJi SunHak Won a place unlike any other in the world, a place that everybody feels they must come and see.
I am telling you that my heart desires to create a new image, a new environment. What kind of heart should you have to participate in this? You should have a heart of gratitude in every situation. You are very lucky to be here with me at this time. We have to quickly make a place where we can say, "This is what the future Cheon Il Guk, the kingdom of heaven on earth, looks like! Come and join us!" (2016.05.06, CheongShim International Youth Center)
True Parents have begun a new era, the era of Cheon Il Guk. We are taking the path of preparing for the settlement of Cheon Il Guk on earth. I am preparing to create a system centered in Korea, centered in CheongPyeong, that is greater than that of Vatican City. True Parents have upheld Heaven's Will and have lived their entire lives living for the sake of others by practicing true love to save humanity. I am making plans to build CheonJi SunHak Won, where all of True Parents' achievements can be viewed in one place, and I am collecting all the necessary staff and resources that will be needed to design and build it.
Once the CheonJi SunHak Won is completed, there will be an endless line of people coming from around the world to visit it. It will be a historical and cultural center representing the Cheon Il Guk era and True Parents, which people will only be able to see by coming to Korea. It will surely be added to UNESCO's registry of cultural heritage sites. I am working on these plans every day. At the same time we are developing the Hyo Jeong Cultural Center, which will stand at the center of the culture of heart revolution. The arts are an essential element in peoples' lives as they pursue joy, freedom, peace, and unity. It is important that people have the opportunity to express themselves through creative outlets such as art and music.
Throughout history there have been many famous artists. There have been many wonderful artists, especially in the Christian cultural sphere, but unfortunately none of them understood Heavenly Parent's dream. To put it simply, their art contained more darkness than hope. One example you might have seen is Michelangelo's The Last Judgment. Artists in this age should create works that portray life in the restored garden of Eden, attending True Parents and Heavenly Parent. Is there any greater happiness than the life of a citizen of Cheon Il Guk? Ahead of us there is nothing but hope. (2016.06.06, East Garden)
I will fulfill Heavenly Parent's dreams one by one centering on the CheonWon Complex. The most important task regarding the CheonWon Complex is the CheonJi SunHak Won. We must reveal True Parents' achievements in front of future generations. We need to show what kind of lives True Parents lived in order to fulfill Heavenly Parent's dream. Whoever visits the CheonJi SunHak Won should be able to say after they've seen everything, ''Ah, I should also take part in this providence. I should also become a Cheon Il Guk citizen,” and sign their name on their way out. It will naturally become an environment that can educate people in such a way. Therefore, it needs a lot of preparation. The design of the building should also be good; to complete one building there needs to be a lot of preparation. The most important part is the exhibitions. We need to think about how we can say ten different things with just one display. Everything has to be expressed with up-to-date technology. To make this happen we need to start preparing and dedicating ourselves. (2016.06.01, Cheon Jeong Gung)
In the HyoJeong CheonWon complex, I will build CheonJi SunHak Won with the most unique qualities that can fulfill Heavenly Parent's dream, and True Parents’ hope. We will open it up to all of humankind. There, you and your future descendants will be able to experience and feel True Parents' love. I am going to make it a shrine where we can give Heavenly Parent infinite gratitude and glory. (2016.05.07, Outdoor Plaza, CheongShim Training Center)
In the 1950s and 1960s, we had no foundation. Do you know what True Father said in Beomnetgol at that time? He liked mountains of course, but he liked the ocean more. Father suffered a lot in Busan in the early days and did a lot of historic work there. Whenever he went by the ports in Busan, which were especially large and had many big boats going in and out, he would say to the members, "Wait and see; the day is not far off when people from all around the world will come here to see the True Parents. Try to imagine it.”
I am building the CheonJi SunHak Won in order to fulfill that desire. It will have the most advanced architecture and a cutting-edge design. People will forever come and enjoy it; they will be able to see it exactly as it is for the next 1,000 or even 2,000 years. I will use this masterpiece to introduce True Parents to the world.
That is possible in Korean culture. How? Paintings need restoration as time goes by. However, Korea has na jeon chil gi (laquerware). They paint it various colors, lacquer it and inlay mother of pearl. The lacquer is permanent, lasting a long time. Only Asian cultures have it; only Korea and Japan, but it started in Korea. If we create a masterpiece of that type, many artist and curious people will come and visit at least once to see it. I am making a place that people cannot refrain from visiting. (2015.05.10, Hilton Hotel, Vienna, Austria)
The CheonJi SunHak Won needs to convey the 6,000-year providential history in its architecture, therefore, we cannot ignore the 2,000 years of Christian history. The CheonJi SunHak Won has to become a historical, monumental, and global building. It should be an educational space in which anyone who enters will come out a Principled person. Moreover, as I traveled to various museums I thought that the CheonJi SunHak Won should be a place where people can see in a single glance how much True Parents have done for world peace; in other words, a place that is unprecedented and unique in the world. Our building should give hope. You don't know how painstakingly I have been thinking about making the building unique and modern, yet classical as well. (2015.05.28, Cheon Hwa Gung)
True Parents' museum
You are not individuals who exist in isolation. You must think about future generations. A big project will be launched in CheonPyeong. I plan to help you by building a museum of True Parents' life courses. It will be a historical museum that records True Parents' life courses, their achievements and the love they had for Heaven and humankind. When that is built, what will Christians think when they see it? How much regret everyone will feel when they enter. They will repent, saying "I lived in the same era as these people; how did I not know? I'm a child that didn't recognize my parents!" True Parents are the parents of humankind. There shouldn't be any children that cannot doesn't recognize them. Thus, you should all take part in this. The museum needs to be completely and perfectly completed during your lifetime. (2013.11.01, Cheon Jeong Gung)
The first thing I want to do is build True Parents' museum. The Savior Messiah, Returning Lord, and True Parents, for humankind has longed for 6,000 years, have carried out many providential initiatives on earth. Yet we have not been able to make the world aware. This is very regrettable. If we do not fulfill our responsibility, it is obvious that our descendants will have a difficult time. Therefore, during your lives, you must tell others that the Returning Lord, Messiah, the True Parents have come to earth.
True Parents' museum will be a history museum. It must be built as the greatest masterpiece like which there is no other. I will make it so that all people can clearly see True Parents' lives, their history, and how much True Parents loved humankind. (2013.03.22, Cheon Jeong Gung)
The True Parents' museum should not stop at depicting only their lives and achievements but should inspire a direction for the future. True Parents have carried out a diversity of providential tasks. I am designing a building people should not pass through absent-mindedly. Even if they have not lived at the same time as True Parents, they should have the natural instinct to emulate True Parents' lives and take part in proliferating their will. This is the concept I have for building the museum.
Therefore, members as well as non-members should come and think, "This was the purpose of my life: to meet True Parents. Not just meet, but I should inherit True Parents' will and resemble them. I should also love humankind and the world.” There is no other way to change the hearts of everyone in the world. People will not be able to restrain themselves from repenting. "I have longed for the day that both Heaven and fallen humankind are liberated. I have hoped for heaven on earth and a world of happiness. True Parents, who have opened that path, have come and this was what their providential history was like. Yet how come I am only coming here now, after True Father has ascended to the spirit world?" That person will determine to uphold True Mother's will for the rest of his life.
Thus, the CheonJi SunHak Won needs to have a stage. I will make it into a cultural center where people can watch movies and see musical theater.
On the second floor, there will be murals of some of the providential work True Parents have done for the world such as the Washington Monument Rally and the World Rally for Korean Freedom. Just like Michelangelo's painting of the Creation of Adam on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, the museum will have vivid historical scenes painted on both walls. Then naturally, the main entrances will be on the southwest side.
The third floor space will display True Parents' life courses in murals and videos. There will also be a balcony. On the third-floor balcony facing the square, I hope to spend quality time with our members while I am still alive. (2014.11.11, Cheon Jeong Gung)
The True Parents' museum will be ultramodern and unique in the world. While ultramodern, the second floor hall should be a place where you naturally bow your head and your mind becomes calm. There, your heart should well up with the desire to offer gratitude to True Parents, and to offer a deep bow and prayer. It must be built so that people feel gratitude and peace. Father's life history has so many interesting aspects. They are recorded at the Sunhak Institute of History. We can restore all of the historic videos. Now we need to keep producing them in a series. I will have them made into educational materials for workshops. Then it can become a living and breathing museum. It will be a museum that also operates as a cultural center 365 days a year. (2014.11.11, Cheon Jeong Gung)
The CheonJi SunHak Won should convey and display, using modern technology, True Parents' lifelong achievements and teachings so that they can be understood at one glance and so that people's hearts can be moved. We need to create and environment in which whoever visits can decide for themselves as they exit, "Ah, I should take part in this'.' Therefore, we should create it as a place of the greatest beauty, awe, and reverence.
The museum will help people understand the course of devotion True Parents took, starting from the lowest position shedding blood, sweat and tears for the sake of the people of the world. Visitors should be able to see in a glance how much indemnity and sacrifice True Parents have paid to save humankind. I want to make the museum a place where people sing praise to True Parents' authority, a place that they want to go to and want to live near. Thus, it will need the best cutting-edge technology.
I want to make a cultural center there. If we are to convey the course of life True Parents walked, we need more than paintings. We need to make movies and have performances. (2014.11.20, Cheon Jeong Gung)
