The more love we have the happier we become. Love is such that once it is in our hand; we never want to let it go. The source of life cannot be governed by human will. Only true love can influence our motivation, our course, or the end of our life. Human beings were born of love, so they must live for love and even die for love at the end of their lives.
What would be the color of love? Do you think it would be inky-black at night, white in the daytime and yellow in the evening? What do you think the col- or of love might be? The power to achieve peace, unity and equality for all can be found in the central color of love. How- ever, if you carelessly venture into love’s most holy place you will be judged by fire.
When you find someone to love, your face becomes radiant. What brings that about? Not guns or threats, only love. Then what kind of love is that? That love is true love, the love that is the owner of the universe, the center of the uni- verse, and the original fountain of the universe.
Love is the cardinal point of happiness, the invisible order, and the peace that serves the common good. It is the common asset of all humanity and the symbol of God’s will and power.
Love holds supreme value. Once you have true love, even God will follow you, the world will follow you, everyone will follow you. Once you stand in love’s place of honor, all creation will follow you.
True love is the kind of love that makes you and another feel good even if you stay together forever. It is the kind of love that makes you feel good, even though you just stay together, live together, watch together, talk together, feel things together and listen together.
Love is liked and welcomed by all people. For this reason, everyone desires to be born, to live, and to die surrounded by love. Such a person is indeed a happy person.
If we think of love as small, it is very small; and if we think of love as large, it is very large. A slight wink from a loved one would make you feel as if heaven and earth were turning upside down. A smile from the one you love would make you feel as if all of heaven and earth were within your heart. If you think that love is perceptive, it becomes perceptive; if you think it small, it is small; if you think it big, it is big; if you think you can see it, you can; and if you think you can- not see it, you cannot see it. Love alone can break down the barriers. People in love are completely possessed by it and each word they venture to speak will be based on the love that claims them.
The power of love is greater and mightier than the power of an atomic bomb. An atomic bomb can only bring death to people, but love has the power to save people from death and give them new life. Atomic bombs are not creators; they bring judgment and destruction. The power that can unite the world into one is not the brute force of arms, but true love.
Each nation has its border, its cul- tural background, and its customs. The only weapon that can transcend these is true love.
As history unfolds and love is per- fected, political, economic and cultural problems – all conflicts and disputes – will be fully resolved. The complex prob- lems faced by humankind in the world today can be fundamentally solved only through the perfection of true love.
We must seek for true love, but where can you go to encounter it? True love is unchanging and eternal, whether it is day or night. However, true love is not something that exists merely for oneself.
It cannot belong to just one person; it belongs to everyone, and is shared by the universe. True love connects to the fam- ily, the society, the nation, the world and the universe.
If true love were perfected, our responsive God would have no regrets even if He were completely immersed in it. God will rejoice over anything and everything that happens, as long as He is surrounded by true love. If people could live in a world of true love, they would all live happily, without regret, throughout their lives. Moreover, there would be no war, discontentment or suffering in that world.
Even all things of creation will show- er blessings upon those who devote their lives for the purpose of love. Flowers will want to bloom in their gardens, and even birds will want to build their nests in the backyard and sing their songs. This is because those people know the value of all things of creation and truly love them.
The universe contracts and expands. In other words, it breathes in and out. It is not political power that controls the contraction and the expansion of the universe. Neither is it knowledge or money. It is the giving of love.
When you look at the world with eyes filled with love, you would say of a bird flying past you, “Why is that bird chirp- ing? Oh, he must be missing his beloved.” Lines of poetry and prose would naturally spring to mind. The history of our everyday lives is harmonized with nature and reproduced in the symphony of love. That is why a breath of love, a caress of love, a song of love and a whisper of love are all pleasing.
