I'm going to keep somebody anonymous. But they have something, and they get used to a certain kind of lifestyle, lifestyle of certain things, luxury. And they change. They move with that kind of people and they change. They like that kind of lifestyle. They like how they are treated because they have all sorts of money. They can have four of this and four of that, and they change. One of the greatest addictions in my eyes is power and money. More than anything else. The other stuff is poor man's stuff. But even that, you can conquer it. But some people just don't want to conquer it. That's why problems happen to the world.

When people of certain significance hold on to something, without knowing that they have problems, it causes a problem. It trickles down whether you like it or not. It's hierarchical whether you like it or not.

It's a free world, and that happens even in the so-called free world. Trust me. Then what happens? Same problems happen over and over again. The struggle. No matter how much we can try to give each other basic stuff, the obvious stuff.

One hundred years ago, people used to wipe their butt with straw weaved rope. They literally used to hang strings from the main-house to the outhouse (motioning a string with his hands). And they literally go like this (motioning to walk over the string) and walk and wipe their behinds. So, obviously a lot of things have changed. But that's not the end, is it? Just because we have more convenience in comparison to whatever. Everybody in culture can always go back. There might be years of differences. But you go back, that's about it.

And what have we accomplished? Did we get rid of all that stuff? No, we didn't. Then how are we going to do that? We have to compete with the rest, who are morally righteous. So be it.

We have some concept, and yes, it's a good concept. I believe it can happen in ten generations. It will take time. Trust me. Because I have to let go of a lot just to say this to you. What you see is what you get. It's my struggle, not yours. Trust me. But it's okay. We don't live that long. Life is short. You make your peace and that's about it.

Because it never ends. You give, you give, you forget, you give the more. Nobody counts how much you give. It's between you and your God in the end. That's about it. Worst case scenario. You always have to think about that stuff. And you die. But I control it. Nobody else.

Any questions? Knock yourself out. You have a question?

(Hyo Jin nim, when you came last week and spoke, you spoke about fallen nature. We all go through so much pain on different levels. But I always think that's Adam and Eve and always have this anger towards Adam and Eve. Last week, I wanted to ask you about that. But that's not what I want to ask you this time. I want to know if there is somebody who is contemporary or already passed on who you really look up to and inspires you. Not just Adam and Eve who takes everybody to hell, but someone who is really inspiring and you look forwards.)

You inspire me. That's why I'm here. People tell me that people love  me and that's why they come and you would not come here for another reason. And I'm the kind of guy who thinks based on what I see normally and initially. And I was really pissed off at a lot of things. I really didn't care. I really didn't care. Okay, you do it then. And that's about it.

The only reason that I started to do this is-I'm sorry for saying this, it might sound selfish but—because I lost my son. And yes, I was blessed with a new family, and I started a new family. That helped me a lot. This is my life and that's about it.

And people started to respond. And they always try to encourage and try to say, don't lose hope. Sometimes I'm a stubborn-headed guy. I only brought this because like I said, from now on, I'll take your questions. If I can help you, give a little more if I can. That's about it. That's it.


(You mentioned conscience and inheritance. Could you explain a little more?) 

Why do you want to make money—if you do make money as a family man? You obviously want something for your children.You want something better for your children. Inheritance is a very important concept of God's. Why? Because God is love. He is the absolute entity when it comes to His discipline and His force and His essence absence. So, obviously, when it comes to His inheritance, He has to absolutely mean it. It has to be absolute.

And what is absolute? It has to reflect the entity. What is the ultimate greatness of God? It's His eternal capacity. Capacity of what? Omnipotence, omnipresence? More than that, we believe in religious community, love, eternal love. Something like that.

So, that's what we are trying to inherit from almighty God. Why? Because if God is that kind of God, and He better be, that's about it, isn't it? There is nothing else greater. Because He is already omnipresent and omnipotent. He is the creator of everything. Why does He need you?

What is the difference between a man and an animal? You can inherit God. That's about it. An animal at best, maybe, I don't know, let's say they can inherit you. But I don't think they can inherit God. Okay? That's about it. To me, that's how I look at God's inheritance.

And everything else, we try to take into our own people's stupid stuff. Who cares? For me personally, I don't like to travel because if I go there, I get disappointed. Because it doesn't look like the postcard. That's why I don't like traveling. It's a waste of my time. Maybe I go to see some people, but that's about it. Not for sightseeing. America has so many beautiful places, the most beautiful places in the world. America hogs it all, in my eyes. So, something like that. To me, that's the kind of inheritance.

Conscience? Okay, how many times do you have problems with your conscience? When do you have the most problem with your conscience? Well, knock yourself out. Fill in that blank. It's like I say, when it teaches you, you should be humble. Think about your least. You are not that great. Be practical. I'm trying to tell you, trying to ground you, trying to make you more objective, more like a son, not like a father.

When your head is going all over the place, you will want to conquer your own folks and even God. Trying to bring you down a little bit. You know you don't need to do that. Settle down a little bit. And that's the time when you learn from your conscience. Because it tells you how to be objective. If God didn't love you, He would not have given you conscience. Think about it. What is the difference between original mind and conscience? It's similar in my mind, the same thing. We just call it differently because we associate Fall with restoring lineage. That's a very unique concept, tremendous concept. That's what you guys believe. In the end, we can win. I believe this stuff'

I might think of a lot of fantasy. Many times, at times I think irrational fantasies as well. I wish I wasn't born into this or that, that's absolutely irrational. You are just blowing off steam, that's about it. Sometimes your mind allows you to go into that moment of psychological babbling or rambling just to blow off steam. Otherwise you are literally going to kill people. The difference between a murderer and sane people is only a paper thin difference.

Just like people say the difference between love and hate is that shallow, that thin. It's the same thing. You just have to know how to deal with your reality. That happens. It's okay. Just know how to deal with it. Know when it's coming. Okay, okay. I'm going to use the best I have. Let's just do something a little more creative and creatively stupid. But it's only in fantasyland. Do you know what I'm saying?

Of course it's irrational. Of course it's fantasy. It's only thought. You're not going to actually go out and carry it out into action. Because you are not that stupid. Why? Because you don't want to be locked up forever. Just know how to take care of it. Just walk away from it. Stuff happens. All those little tools there, just a little jam there. You just have to know how to tinker with it and know how to manage it.

First thing is to recognize it—it exists for you. Know how to use it for your benefit. But know what is right. What is right? Guess what? You have to do this forever. Whether I like it or not, for me.

Do you like to be appreciated? So does everybody else under the sun. Anyway, do you have any more questions? Can I go now? May I be excused? Okay, I will see you next week.
