The San Beda Red Lions sent the Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras back down to reality as the reigning NCAA champions manhandled the Southern Islands rulers, 77-49, in the semifinal round of the 2013 National Collegiate Championship yesterday at the Arena in San Juan City.Overconfidence reared its ugly head for the Cebuanos as they played uninspired basketball all-game long against a San Beda squad hungry for its first win following a loss to Far Eastern University (FEU) last Monday.ADVERTISEMENT The result was a veritable whitewash that had the Cobras groping for form from the opening tip until the final buzzer.Nobody typified SWU’s struggles than Cesafi MVP Mark Jayven Tallo, who, a day after coming up with crucial plays in SWU’s 68-58 win over UAAP titlists La Salle, was held down to just two points on 1-of-7 shooting from the field.FEATURED STORIESNEWSINFOSenate to probe Tolentino’s ‘novel legal theories’ on oral agreementsNEWSINFOLocsin wants to drop ‘visas upon arrival’ privilegeNEWSINFOPalace open to make Dengvaxia usable again as dengue cases spikeSWU got 13 points, six rebounds and four assists from import Landry Sanjo in spite battling foul trouble all-game long.

First, there is the matter of sifting through attendees and finding the ones who are in alignment with your business goals and dreams. Then, there is the matter of collecting (and holding onto) the hundreds of business cards that others hand out.These are some reasons why a dynamic mother and daughter team put their collective years of business experience together (as well as their great relationship) to launch an events app: Mixtroz.Ashlee Ammons, co-founder and CMO, says that the goal of Mixtroz is to create a unique events app unlike others on the market.“Mixtroz is the only tool that solves the current ineffectiveness of building and sustaining strong and meaningful networks formed exclusively by a ‘click’ online or by brief, often awkward, personal introductions,â€ Ammon says.She launched the app 17 months ago with her mother, Kerry Schrader. Ammons, after working as a public relations professional, which included creating events for prestigious clients such Oprah Winfrey, Leonardo DiCaprio and LeBron James, reveals how she came up with the idea of Mixtroz in an amusing anecdote:“[At a lunch event, they] advised attendees to approach ‘someone’ with the same color dot on their name tag and strike up a conversation. Being that I attended the conference alone, the thought of this ‘social suicide’ proved very awkward, and keep in mind, I am the extrovert of extroverts,â€ says Ammons.She says she felt like a “creep”, “Checking out other women’s breast areas to confirm the color of the dot and striking up some sort of meaningless conversation.â€Together with her mother (who holds an MBA and is a human resources professional), they launched Mixtroz.Bootstrapping the first $30,000 to launch, they raised $125,000 in additional funding from family and friends.The app is fully functional and available on Android and iOS.The pair has also auditioned for Shark Tank and have been accepted into an accelerator program, Gigtank 365, this summer with the goal of securing $1 million in seed funding to add features to MixTroz.
Inauguration of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification in JapanJapan, Chiba prefecture, Makuhari Event Hall – October 12, 2015Keynote AddressSun Jin MoonInternational PresidentFamily Federation for World Peace and Unification[Download the Speech] Minasan, Konnichiwa!Distinguished guests and beloved brothers and sisters!It is a tremendous honor for me to be here with you today celebrating the inauguration of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification in Japan. This is a joyous and momentous victory for Japan, and for our worldwide movement. It seems especially meaningful that this victory came at the time of the 3rd Anniversary of True Father’s Ascension. What a blessing!This wonderful advancement fills us with a spirit of hope as we look ahead toward the 3rd Foundation Day, which we will celebrate in February of 2016. Let us show our appreciation with a jubilant round of applause for all the brothers and sisters who made this accomplishment possible! Aju! Just before coming to Japan I had a very amazing and inspiring experience with True Mother and other members of my family.As you know, there was an autumnal super-moon this year, something that occurs every 18 years. With this in mind, True Mother called us together at Cheon Jeon Gung along with three generations of the True Family and Blessed Central Family members. Being so close to this super-moonlight made us all feel Heavenly Parent’s and True Father’s warmth, true love, and wisdom.It was moving to be in the presence of this radiating, glorious light as it lit the night sky, and illuminated our path as we walked along. And, it was truly special to be with True Mother on this unforgettable night. Along the way, we sang songs of love and devotion to Heavenly Parent, True Father, and to our ascended family members and ancestors.And we each made our wish in the presence of this luminous autumn moon. Toward the end of our walk, we made our final stop to visit with Anju and Jung Ju, the two beautiful North Korean dogs, one male and one female, given as a gift to True Parents from Kim Jong Eun, the president of North Korea. The gift was presented at the time of True Parents Birthday 2013.The two dogs are named after True Mother’s hometown of Anju and True Father’s hometown of Jung Ju. True Parents looked after and raised Jung ju and Anju with the heart of yearning for Unification. Since Jung ju and Anju were siblings, they could not breed. Hence, Anju was allowed to breed with Uri, a pure breed Poongsan Dog donated by former president Kim Jeong Il to former president Kim Dae Jung of South Korea on the condition that if Anju gives birth to puppies, one of them should be given to Uri.Mating between Uri and Anju was attempted on several occasions without success. However, miraculously on the occasion of True Father Third’s Seonghwa Memorial, Anju gave birth to two healthy and adorable puppies.The first puppy born from the mating between Anju and Uri was donated to Uri as promised. This puppy was moved to an animal shelter (zoo) managed by the Korean government. After taking a good look at the second puppy, True Mother named it Jung Pal. The first character ‘Jung’ comes from True Father’s hometown of Jung ju and the second character, ‘Pal’ comes from the Chinese character symbolizing perfection or eternity.As we held and played with Jung Pal, we felt as if we were embracing True Father’s hometown and his dream of unification of our homeland of Korea. It was as though the ideal of peace for the entire world was alive and almost real as we experienced the gift of life in this small puppy. Also, in the glowing light of the sphere of the super-moon, we could see and feel the full circle of life from birth to death.We all felt gratitude for the amazing gift of life, knowing that through our lives we have the esteemed honor and opportunity to make this world a better place, before we pass to the spiritual world. In this moment, under the super-moon, together with True Mother, and True Father’s puppy, we felt purely blessed. Our hearts were united as we hugged each other as one family, with eternal love and gratitude to True Father and our family members who had ascended.According to some, the autumn super-moon and its cycle are believed to give off energy for growth, liberation and new beginnings. The fact that the super-moon phenomenon includes an eclipse suggests that it marks the end of one era or period and the beginning of a new one.It is a time for growth, balance, and centering. On this magical night, centered completely as one family under our Heavenly Parent and True Parents, we welcomed this new era of joy and greater blessings. This very special day was also the time in Korea known as Chuseok, a time of thanksgiving when we gather as a family to honor our ascended ancestors at the Wonjeon and share a feast of the autumn harvest.We reflected on the lives of our loved ones who had passed, knowing that each one had their own hopes, dreams and aspirations for peace. Recognizing this, we each pledged to live and work to fulfill their hopes and dreams. We felt deeply the preciousness of life and of each and every breath we take. Life is such a blessing.True Mother spoke to us during our Chuseok luncheon. She commented on the super-moon, and she reminded us that such a moon only occurs every 18 years. She asked each of us to think about our own lives over the course of the next 18 years. What will we accomplish during that time?She encouraged us to strive to achieve full completion, like the super-moon; we should each feel hopeful and joyful, knowing that we have been blessed by True Parents with true love, life and lineage.Here are some words from True Mother from the luncheon:When I look at the round moon, I think about our lives. During our earthly lives, I hope that our responsibility does not falter; we should be like the round moon which is growing bigger every day. To complete the Will of the providence, I, my family, the church and the nation must fulfill their responsibilities while True Parents are on this earth. I have wondered, “How many full moons must pass for that day to come?” Everyone, what thoughts did you have?First of all, standing before True Parents, the priority is that we fulfill the 2020 Vision. You must fulfill this responsibility. Your achievement will demonstrate to others and to the world that victory is possible. Isn’t that so? Can you do it? If you do so, 7 billion people around the world will attend the Heavenly Parent and they will advance toward the happy day when they can share gratitude, and love just like we experienced today. Just like the round moon, your efforts and devotion will determine whether or not a lot of time, or a shorter time needs to be spent. Beginning with the individual, when all members and families fulfill their responsibilities and attend the Heavenly Parent with one heart, one Will and one devotion, we will be able to show the people of this world the way to build a united world where we can attend the Heavenly Parent and celebrate together with True Parents. (True Mother’s speech)I wanted to share this experience with you in hopes that I could bring to all of you some of the same light, joy, love and wisdom of our True Mother, especially as we celebrate the victory of FFWPU-Japan. Truly we are coming much closer to fulfilling True Parent’s will that we become one global family under Heavenly Parent, making this ideal a peaceful, loving reality for the whole world! Aju!As I stand before you today, I am deeply humbled, and my heart is filled with profound gratitude and respect for each and every one of you, especially when I reflect on the heroic and sacrificial course that you have followed throughout your lives, in attendance to Heavenly Parent and True Parents. Without your sacrifice and your unchanging dedication we would not be celebrating this victorious day.Thank you brothers and sisters.You shine like stars in the heavens. Salanghamnida!You are even brighter than a super-moon!!!Certainly for all of us, centering on the 3rd anniversary of True Father’s ascension, we have come to know the clear, absolute, path of victory that our True Parents completed. I think especially of the recent publication of the Cham Bumo Gyeong, and the completion of the three Holy Scriptures. We have been given renewed hope and grace, allowing us to overcome negativity and resentment so that we can follow the path of light, love, hope, faith and goodness.This is possible because we have been engrafted to True Parents as the true olive tree, whereby we can become their filial sons and daughters. With our True Mother here on earth and True Father in heaven, and strengthened by their words of truth, we can move forward toward the fulfillment of Vision 2020 and the realization of CIG.Of utmost importance in fulfilling both of these goals is the tribal messiah mission. As we carry out our responsibility, we honor our True Father and, along the way, we can achieve harmony and oneness with all living beings and bring the truth of True Parents to all 7 billion people of the world.As we usher in this glorious autumn season and celebrate this joyous victory for FFWPU Japan, let us reflect on the words of True Father, as he speaks about the significance of the shift from the era of the Unification Church to the era of the Family Federation:The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification was established to gather the mothers, the sons and the daughters, who had fallen short in Adam’s family, and lead them to the Blessing. From the family age of the Blessing we move now to the tribal age. The age of HSA-UWC was for the sake of finding Adam’s family. Now we are in the course of uniting Adam’s family and building the tribal-level foundation. After interconnecting the tribes we can build a national-level foundation and finally a world-level foundation. We are now in this time of great change, so the Unification Church is transforming into the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification.The Unification Church has completed the foundation on the individual level, and after establishing the family, tribe and people we need to settle one nation, the nation of the united world. If the Unification Church can help guide the United Nations, everything will be done. It is important to achieve the unification of North and South Korea, and also to unite the Adam and Eve nations. That time will come.When you receive the Blessing, you must join the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification and take responsibility as tribal messiahs…..At this time, centering on the True Family, we can connect to the realm of direct dominion. We are becoming complete with True Parents as the center Accordingly, in the Unification Church, we have been performing the Blessing ceremony centering on true love, true life and true lineage, thereby connecting everything to God.The God-centered family is the place in which all religions are fulfilled. Religions emerged in order to seek the family that was lost in the Garden of Eden. This was to clarify that the original ideal world as envisioned at the Creation comes not through religion but, rather, through ideal families.These are such precious words from our True Father, and I believe they help us understand the significance of today’s gathering.History of RestorationAs each of you knows, the way of salvation is a difficult course of restoration, a course of reversing the Fall so that humanity can re-unite with Heavenly Parent. There is no magic wand for salvation. In fact, the course of restoration is marked by the sacrificial path taken by our True Parents along with all of you.True Parents revealed to us the true loving heart of our Heavenly Parent, the true nature of the Fall, and the principles of restoration. They revealed to us the patterns of providential history and showed us the way to reverse the Fall, restoring the world of darkness, and building a new world that is within the direct dominion of Heavenly Parent’s loving light. Heavenly Parent created human beings to be object partners of true love.Restoration occurs as we create relationships of true love. With this in mind, we understand that True Parents cannot fulfill the providence of restoration all by themselves; they needed to create a family, a True Family that reciprocated absolute true love, faith and obedience. As Blessed Central Families we have all been engrafted to True Parents as object partners, with the mission and responsibility to become their filial sons and daughters.True Parents were able to achieve victory at each critical stage in the history of restoration because of the genuine, absolute, loving, and sincere devotion and effort of our filial True Family members, and all our precious brothers and sisters around the world, especially here in Japan. True Parents have not only raised their own sons and daughters, but they have worked tirelessly to establish a global family of sons and daughters, brothers and sisters in every corner of the world, all within one lifetime. They expanded the realm of the Blessing to every continent and every nation, and to people of every race, religion, nationality and culture.That is why they established the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification as a global movement of Blessed families. It is our mission to build on their foundation and expand the realm of the Blessing to 7 billion people of the world. When I look at your faces today, I can feel that Heavenly Parent, True Father in Heaven, and True Mother on earth are very happy. They have been comforted and supported by the absolute love, faith, and filial piety you have returned to them.True Mother and the Eve Nation of JapanI would like to take this precious opportunity to offer special thanks to True Mother. Without her devotion and her life of absolute sacrifice to Heavenly Parent and True Father over many decades in the providence of restoration none of us would be standing here today as members of the True Family or as Blessed Central Family members. It is because of her absolute true love, faith, and obedience that we stand here to inherit true love, true life, and true lineage from our beloved True Parents. Together with True Father, she completed the original ideal of Heavenly Parent, the three blessings, and the original four-position foundation.This is the root of our movement. And, now that True Father has ascended, she has worked tirelessly and she has triumphed to secure and settle the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification. And, she leads us forward toward the fulfillment of Vision 2020 and the completion of Cheon Il Guk, so that our entire movement can eternally thrive and prosper.Her course has not been easy or simple. She has said that her life has been like a deep ocean; beneath the surface there are so many difficulties and unfathomable sacrifices she had to overcome. We are so blessed to have our True Mother guiding and loving us.We must honor her love, sacrifice, and victory while she is on the earth; True Father in heaven wishes nothing less than for his children to live with love, oneness, and joy with our eternal True Parents. Aju? I know in my heart that you beloved Japanese brothers and sisters have also walked a path of total sacrifice.For this reason, you can understand True Mother’s heart. Like True Mother, you have also maintained a standard of absolute love, faith and obedience as the mother nation. This level of devotion and hard work enabled you to receive the blessings from True Father and opened your hearts to offer support to not only the father nation, but all nations around the globe giving salvation to all the lost children of the world.You are a living testimony to the hallowed glory, the true sincere heart, the embodiment of True Love and living for the sake of others, and the actualized truth of our True Parents.When we celebrated the 3rd anniversary of True Father’s Ascension, our Japanese members performed a musical that displayed the passion and depth of True Father’s love. Wasn’t it wonderful? True Mother was so inspired!We witnessed the history of True Father’s unchanging will to embrace and bring salvation to the world, even at the risk of his own life, by loving and forgiving Japan, that was viewed as an “enemy” nation at that period in time. We cried as the performers portrayed True Father’s tortuous and humiliating path of suffering, never failing to love his enemy, winning their hearts through the practice of true love and grace. True Father set the standard of true love, a standard we are called to embody.This path that we all are called to walk was paved with True Father’s absolute, devout passion to unite all divided entities and restore all beings and things back into oneness with our Heavenly Parent. When we deeply reflect on True Parents’ sacrificial course, we understand that they went that way for our sake, so that we could receive the Blessing and build a world where such indemnity and suffering are no longer necessary.As this autumnal season is a time for reflection, growth, and renewal, please meditate and open your hearts to appreciate Heavenly Parent and True Parents. Let us think of what we can offer in return for all the gifts of True Love, True Life and True Lineage that we have received. The principle of give and take action calls for reciprocity.We have each been given salvation, the blessing, the vision 2020 of one family under HP, and the glorious honor of ushering in the realization of CIG! We have been given a glorious, eternal truth, path of TL, and unlimited grace. Knowing this, how should we respond? True Father, before ascending, gave us the answer. He anointed all Blessed Central Family members with the tribal messiah mission.Just as True Parents sincerely offered their lives for the sake of the providence of restoration and emerged victorious, we should do the same through our tribal messiah mission. Our hearts should be overflowing with gratitude and love as we stand on their victorious foundation. As their sons and daughters let us joyfully strive each day to create loving families at home, as well as fulfilling True Parent’s vision to return all the children of the world back to our Heavenly Parent.As we usher in the FFWPU era in Japan, we affirm the victorious lives of our True Parents, who are the absolute unified center, as a true husband and wife. All life born from them or engrafted to them through the Blessing can be fully restored. This is a joyous moment in history of our Japanese movement!Because True Mother and the Eve Nation of Japan completely united with True Father and walked an absolute course of sacrifice and restoration, the providence could go forward. Victory was assured. True Mother, together with the Eve Nation, established deep roots on a global scale and gave rebirth and new life, through the Blessing, to millions of people all over the world.Along with our glorious True Parents, you are all heroes and champions; true filial sons and daughters, patriots and saints who, after having paid so much indemnity and having overcome countless difficulties, can share Heavenly Parent’s grace, love and truth with the world.I offer you all my deepest love and gratitude! (Arigato Gozaimasu! Aishite imasu!)Let’s Support TM and Bring Victory with Vision 2020 As you know, True Mother has reassured and promised True Father in Heaven that she will carry on their providential mission here on earth. True Father has stated the importance of expanding True Parents’ Blessing to other families through our effort as tribal messiahs.When you receive the Blessing, you must join the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification and take responsibility as tribal messiahs… By connecting to the nation and becoming one with God and True Parents, we transition from the realm of indirect dominion to the realm of direct dominion. This is the course we must take. This is how unity is achieved” Chambumogyung Book 12 Chapter 1True Mother has been very encouraged with the rapid expansion of tribal messiah Blessings in countries like Philippines, Nepal, Thailand and other countries and highlighted the need for a national level of heavenly victory. I know that True Mother has high hopes for FFWPU Japan; you are the mother nation. I know that the Japanese brothers and sisters will unite wholeheartedly with True Mother and support her.To show our united support and eternal love for TPs, let us all join hands, feel the power and warmth of this collective loving energy!And, with one heart, one mind, and one united spirit, let us pledge our full and sincere determination to complete this Tribal Messiah mission; realizing Vision 2020 and establishing Cheon Il Guk!Let us feel the limitless energy of being one united family, and let us offer our commitment, like a great autumn super-moon, to usher in a new cycle, a new era of victory and completion of our True Parents’ dreams for worldwide peace and unification. All together, then let us offer three booming and energetic cheers of sungli and unified mansei! Sunli x3!!! Aju!May all our collective wishes and dreams be fulfilled and bring victory, love, peace and unification to all life and creation! Aju!May Heavenly Parent and True Parents blessings and love be with each one of you and with your precious families always!Kamsahamnida! Salanghamnida! Namaste!
If you have missed previouse lectures here they are:Here are the lectures by Dr. Tyler Hendricks on the Victorious Gospel of True Parents. The videos are designed to help better understanding and unity with True Parents, particularly in light of the claims made by the Sanctuary Church. (Click on the titles below to watch the video)Thoughts on Sanctuary ChurchReflections on the stance of Sanctuary Church with regard to God, True Parents, and the Bible’s teachings regarding marriage and family. This will be followed by a series entitled “The Victorious Gospel of True Parents.”Victorious Gospel of True Parents 1This is to share the blessing of working on Father’s (and Mother’s) words recently, which has deepened my understanding of God’s work in the world. When Jesus left the earth, the Holy Spirit emerged; it was a new chapter. I hope this series of nine videos will ease us into this new chapter. I will post two per week, and then a final one to cap it off.Victorious Gospel of True Parents 2I will be posting this series of nine presentations on the Victorious Gospel of True Parents, one every Monday for seven more weeks, a total of nine. Then I will post one on Father’s words about his succession. Then we get serious about going a little bit viral.Victorious Gospel of True Parents 3This session covers Mother’s life 1960-68. Learning about this, I realized how strong she is. If she could endure what she went through in those years, she can endure anything.Victorious Gospel of True Parents 4True Mother needed to give birth to at least twelve children. Are there any sisters here who would like to step forward for that mission? And it was not “it would be great if you could,” or “I want you to do your best;” it was “this is your mission and you do it at the cost of your life.”Victorious Gospel of True Parents 5“In order to complete God’s providence of salvation, it is not one man, the Savior, the Messiah, or Lord of the Second Advent, who has to appear. It is the True Parents, a husband and wife who resemble God completely and who have completely realized His true love who have to appear.” Rev. Moon, Feb 6, 2003Victorious Gospel of True Parents 6True Parents did not call upon God to destroy Satan; they did not blame Lucifer for all the problems. They took responsibility because the Fall is ultimately Adam’s responsibility. So they loved Satan’s people, us, took on all our sins, and guided us on the way of restoration and empowered us to restore others, have good marriages and families, and more.Victorious Gospel of True Parents 7“God has had no partner. He needs a female object partner. She is His partner, and at the same time she is the Queen of the earth. She is the Queen of the tribes and Queen of the families. She stands as the Grandmother of all ancestors, the Mother of all humankind, the Wife of God and the Daughter of God. True Mother is such a woman, with the value of the original True Mother.” (Father Moon, 2002.12.09)Victorious Gospel of True Parents 8“…we offer and declare the age in which the ultimate realm of oneness between True Father and True Mother is perfected and consummated, and the age in which God is all-immanent, all-transcendent, all-powerful and all-capable.” July 1, 2010Victorious Gospel of True Parents 9This is the final segment of The Victorious Gospel of True Parents. Next week’s video will be on the topic of “The Succession.” By Dr. Tyler HendricksIn principle there is a central successor: the central fruit of the central bud of the central shoot. To this person True Father implicitly gave three missions: First, unity: sustain the True Parents’ ideal family. Second, leadership: through the ideal family, lead heavenly tribal messiahship for all blessed families. Third, sacrifice: restore all nations and build Cheon Il Guk. To Be Continued
3. Tokue Beniya, (Shibuya, Japan, F, 43): Please tell us any memorable episodes with True Parents that are related to the turning point (internal, external) in your life.Sun Jin Nim:The most memorable experience was when Father asked me to receive the Blessing at a very early age; I was 17, in my senior year of high school. At that time, I was an angry young child with not much understanding. At that time some of us did not have a foundation of faith. We did not understand the meaning of the Blessing as blessed children. So at that time I said no. It was the first time one of the True Children had said no to Father regarding the Blessing. You might imagine Father’s response. Father was so upset with me. I went to my room and cried.We were engaged for some seven months before the Blessing. I had no understanding. I was just thinking about the external qualities I would want in a husband. As time passed I came to the conclusion that I could not accept my husband. I told Father “I cannot do this.”Father didn’t yell at me. But he said something I will remember for the rest of my life: He said the truth is the truth. You cannot escape it. What is universal law is law, whether you understand it or not. So if you want to go your own way, do what you want. But know this: no matter what you do, no matter where you go, the truth is the truth and one day you will realize it.And I thought, okay I will go and find my own truth. But what kind of truth is out there? It took me almost 5 years – during which I could not find any kind of love; it was like a wilderness. I was surviving from day to day. I had 3 part-time jobs. Nothing in life held any meaning. I was so lost, almost to the point that I did not want to live.Then I found I had cancer. I had already recognized that the world had nothing for me. I came back to Father. Father said to me that during the time I was gone, every single night True Parents could not sleep as they were so worried about me. Father said to me, “We love you and we were worried about you; thank God you are home.” At that moment I realized that my Heavenly Parent and my parents unconditionally loved me. And parents will wait, thinking of their children, waiting for them to come home. I came to understand this universal truth, what true love means. I understood that this is God’s heart, the heart of a parent.My husband, too, stood by me for 5 years and waited for me to come home. He never gave up on our Blessing. Can you imagine? I have to say thank you to True Parents, but also to my husband, for having to restore our relationship. He offered all the indemnity.Now it is 22 years since the Blessing, and I know the truth. True Parents are our absolute true parents. Heavenly Parent is our absolute heavenly parent. And my Blessing is my true love, life and salvation. The Blessing is absolutely the most precious gift that we have! I wanted a strong man for my husband: this is a man who never gave up on me for 22 years! I love him. That’s the truth. [Applause]Sun Jin Nim explained that when Mother first asked her to help her following True Father’s ascension, she felt so unworthy to accept Mother’s request. “It was the scariest possible mission.” At that time, she prayed very seriously, asking True Father to show her the way.Very soon afterwards, she was given the chance to study yoga and meditation intensively for a short period. She felt this was True Father’s guidance to her, and so she invested herself totally in the course, finding the means to prepare her mind and heart to support True Mother. And, she testifies, yoga has become an anchor in her life, and a means to bring her mind, body and spirit into unity even in difficult times.Sun Jin Nim then led the audience in a “Crown of Glory” meditation, which she prepared after reading True Father’s poem, Crown of Glory.“It will strengthen your mind and heart to meet life’s challenges. It will fill you with peaceful, gentle kindness, and true love.”The meditation guides the participants to open their hearts to reconcile with the people most difficult to love.Sun Jin Nim gave brief, follow-up encouragement to all present:“If challenged, rise to the occasion with true love. Don’t doubt. If you fail, get up and try, try again until you bring victory. Be humble, be kind, be compassionate and charitable. And love, love, and only love.”Sun Jin Nim and In Sup Nim concluded the session by personally giving gifts to some lucky participants. After cheers of Eok-mansei, Sun Jin Nim and In Sup Nim departed the hall while receiving loud applause and cheers from all in attendance.Click to see more pictures By Julian Gray, FFWPU InternationalFFWPU International President Sun Jin Moon was accompanied by her husband In Sup Nim. She began her speech by warmly welcoming the brothers and sisters who had already arrived for the first day of the Cheongpyeong “Great Works” workshop. Here follows a summary of the main parts of the two-and-a-half-hour session:Sun Jin Nim:“True Parents have been creating a haven, a home, where all the people of the world can find their true home, their true parents, understand Heavenly Parent’s word and be reborn as true, filial sons and daughters. I welcome you, my brothers and sisters from around the world with tremendous joy, with tremendous love, and tremendous gratitude.”The International President mentioned that Mother is always thinking about the world, which does not manifest God’s ideal. She said that our members, as missionaries, have seen much human suffering, division and breakdown. We see refugee crises, wars and threats of war, all evidencing humankind’s separation from God, and all people are crying out for hope, looking for the end of suffering, the path back to our Heavenly Parent. And True Parents have made so much effort to bring their message to the people of the world.Sun Jin Nim then asked everyone present to offer a time of silence, to pray for the people around the world who do not yet know True Parents:“For all those suffering from terror, affected by climate change, refugee crises, war, division, separation, poverty, any form of discrimination—whether religious, racist, sexist, nationalist—or human rights violation and abuse. To all the children of Heavenly Parent around the world, let us offer our love, hope, charity, and solidarity as one family under Heavenly Parent and open our hearts to our global family in this moment of prayer. Aju.”Mentioning the lack of love in people’s lives, and how people are searching for true parents, and how Mother is working to develop the culture of the arts to help guide people back to the love they miss, Sun Jin Nim played the music video “Where’s the Love?” (Sung by the Black Eyed Peas).Sun Jin Nim then said that we have the responsibility to help True Parents in fulfilling the dream of bringing all of humankind back to God’s love. “What did True Parents leave us in order to find the way? Hoondokhae! All of Father’s speeches.”After explaining the value of reading True Parents’ words, Sun Jin Nim read the final section, “Dreaming of a Peaceful World,” from True Father’s autobiography, As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen.In this chapter, Father explains his vision for a road bridge to span the Bering Strait and join two mega-continents together as part of an international highway for peace. Father recognized that many nations would have to agree to the International Highway, but he emphasized that squandering money on arms and warfare must one day stop.Father also mentioned his proposal for a restructuring of the United Nations to include “a religious, or cultural, assembly or council and that this body “would consist of respected spiritual leaders in fields such as religion, culture, and education” who would “transcend the limited interests of particular religions and cultures and to speak for the spiritual and moral purposes of all humanity.”In the concluding words of the section, Father emphasized, “Those who have achieved deep self-awareness through religious practice are needed now more than ever. It is only truly religious people who can stand up to the unrighteousness and evil of the world and practice true love. It is only when the knowledge and experience of political leaders are combined with the wisdom of interreligious leaders that the world will be able to find the path to true peace.Again today I set out on my path with renewed determination to achieve that goal. My prayer is that every person on earth will be reborn as a peace-loving global citizen, transcending barriers of religion, ideology, and race.”Sun Jin Nim has created a tradition at her speaking events, which she calls “Heart to Heart.” She receives questions in advance from members who will be present in the audience on the day she speaks, and then tries to answer them from her heart. As she began the session, Sun Jin Nim said that this was a way we grow and learn from each other: “So I learn from your questions and we learn to answer them together as one family.”Here are the questions Sun Jin Nim answered today (the answers written here are a summary of what Sun Jin Nim said and therefore slightly selective and interpretive in parts):1. Agnes Nagy, Italy (originally Hungary): You are very beautiful, in every sense, and we know you are very busy, carrying big responsibilities with your husband for God, and to support Mother continuously. How do you organize your time so that you can take care of yourself so well?Sun Jin Nim:It is true we are constantly on the go for the worldwide mission. When Mother was with Father she supported him 24/7 and could not take care of herself at all. She was restoring Eve’s mission, having 14 children, and living for the sake of the world. Through their course, True Parents opened to door to liberation so that we could have potential to inherit their perfection.True Mother is now taking good care of her health. She is doing the ‘bounce’ exercise, and she balances what she gives to the world with taking in positive messages and enjoying beautiful moments in nature—all of which bring vitality. Mother is trying to introduce this to everybody as the culture of heart, how we live in the time of settlement.I am grateful to True Mother. I had no foundation to serve True Parents. She gave me time, the balance, the patience and encouragement, in the hope that eventually we would be able to step forward. So with regard to the question of how I take care of myself, it is trying to find a balance. For the first part of our church history we had Father: he was like fire, blazing the road without rest or sleep.Mother was with him every step of the way but now we can begin to understand the feminine side of True Parents. Father was like lightning, waking us up. And Mother is like complete harmony, embracing us, building us up, thinking of our education, growth and perfection, Blessing and future legacy, the record of the sons and daughters. Father is like the Sun energy of the day, and Mother is like the Moon energy of the night, embracing and restoring our bodies and minds so that we can go again the next day. And as I serve True Parents as one united couple, I came to understand this to be the balance that was missing in our movement; and why many second generation members could not experience an environment where both masculine and feminine energies were complete, and where we could raise our children with love, joy and happiness.I know that if my mind, body and soul are not strong I cannot help anyone. To balance everything, I do yoga and meditation, and recently a lot of sports – which makes us strong mentally as well as physically. I take time to cook a meal for the family, enjoying it together, spending time to walk our dogs, but really taking those times to connect and really find joy in life. You have to find ways to feed your body and soul daily, to surround mind, body and soul with positive things that bring joy and inspire you.2. Takiko Okamoto, Japan: I believe you went through many different feelings towards True Parents, not having been able to spend so much time with them when you were small, but now you are attending them as International President. Please let us know how you became aware of your position as a True Child?Sun Jin Nim:Let me ask you, what do you think the archangel would attack more than anything? Of course, True Parents as the Messiah. But next, Satan would want to destroy the True Children.When we were growing up we did not have True Parents with us so much, so although we were called “True Children” it was not always such a blessing.It was a very public life, we were raised by church brothers and sisters who were not yet perfected in love. And expectations of us were very high, that we as True Parents’ children, should be model children representing True Parents to the world, and that we should inherit their leadership qualities.In that time of indemnity, when we were growing up, True Parents had to love Cain more than Abel, to indemnify the Fall. So they needed to put the Cain children first.I also saw my brothers and sisters go through difficulties; I came to have a lot of doubt, resentment, even anger and disbelief.My older brother Heung-jin nim passed away when I was 7 years old. He was in the hospital unconscious, so pale. We were asked to kiss him, because he was going to pass on to the spirit world, but I was scared, and I could not do it. We were asked not to cry, and it was explained that he was going as a sacrifice for the world. It had my first spiritual experience when I saw my brother’s image in the spirit. Father had told us not to cry so I was looking upward, and I saw Heung-jin Oppa and he just smiled at me to say “It’s okay.”Hyo-jin nim, especially, grew up under such pressure to inherit from True Father as his son. He had to endure so much internally, yet always had great hopes for people. He was absolutely faithful to Father and Mother.True Parents went to America. At the time there was a problem of racism, plus Father and the movement began to receive a lot of persecution. People would fight and bully my brother Hyo-jin. I also saw my other brothers and sisters made fun of and being persecuted as Father’s children. There were threats against True Parents’ lives, and we were warned about the danger of kidnapping and that we, the children, needed security too. I think that is why Hyo-jin nim did martial arts so much. It was a difficult environment in which to grow up.We faced archangelic powers too, that sought to divide members of the True Family from each other, from True Parents. The Archangel divides and separates, and offers someone individual power, and tempts him or her away from their original purpose. We see this energy all over the world, coming from 6,000 years of the human Fall. I have seen everyone in my family go through this. But I don’t judge anyone after what they have been through. If you had walked in their shoes…no one can judge. We have to find our way back to become united with love, faith and obedience.First generation families can relate. Like True Parents, you sacrificed your lives for the sake of the providence, and your children may have grown up with the same challenges we had. Everything True Mother has been trying to do recently is to bring everyone back, to restore the family, to be able to go as one family. She elevated Hyo-jin Oppa to a position that during his earthly lifetime he was never able to receive. In this lifetime, even for someone like me, as a True Child, I was so unworthy—yet Mother asked me to help her, and taught me really how to be a child of True Parents. So when did I realize I was a True Child? It was when, in spite of everything, I experienced True Parents’ unconditional love and I realized that Heavenly Parent has never, ever given up on any one of His children; and that True Parents unconditionally love you as their True Children.This is such a blessing to each and every one of you. Then how should we, as filial sons and daughters, return this blessing to True Parents? It is through hyojeong, a heart of filial piety. If we can overcome all our resentment and pain, and seeing who our True Parents are, and our Heavenly Parent too, and, beyond all obstacles, help our True Parents the dream—that is how we become True Children. Special Talk by the International President at the 2017 Autumn HyoJeong CP Special Great Works, November 3 2017, at Cheongpyeong Training Center
Morning Report: Jorge Masvidal praises Conor McGregor: ‘The dude is a f*cking G, bro’ After a dozen years, the UFC Hall of Fame is undergoing a transformation in an attempt to make it both more legitimate as an entity, and to eventually have some form of a legitimate physical structure.The company announced on Tuesday that it will induct a new class on July 11, at the Fan Expo the afternoon of UFC 189. There will be likely five inductees in four categories. The announcement noted at least one person from four different categories will be inducted each year between 2015 and 2017, as a way to establish the new criteria. With one of the categories being a legendary match, that would mean two inductees from that category.After 2017, candidates will be chosen from those categories, but not necessarily one from every category each year.The categories announced are the Modern Era Wing, the Pioneers Era Wing, the Contributors Wing and the Fight Wing. The Modern Era Wing will be for those who made their professional MMA debut after November 17, 2000. To be eligible, a fighter must have either passed the age of 35, or have been retired for one calendar year. It is noted that active fighters past 35 are eligible, but not preferable.The November 17, 2000, date is symbolic based on the adoption of the current “Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts” by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board.The Pioneer Era Wing would be for fighters who debuted prior to that date. They also must be at least 35 years old, although every legitimate Hall of Fame candidate who debuted prior to that date is going to be past 35.The Contributors Wing is for non-fighters, for either individuals, or groups of individuals, who have made outstanding or historical contributions to the sport. There are no age limits when it comes to this category and the contributors can still be active in the sport.Contributors would be officials, referees, judges, trainers, commissioners, commentators, promoters and others associated with the sport in a non-competition role. The noting of groups could mean the group that organized the original UFC and led to its formation such as Art Davie, Campbell McLaren, Rorion Gracie and Bob Meyrowitz, who worked together on the first show, or including David Isaacs, who ran the promotion for several years before the Zuffa purchase in 2001.The final category is the Fight Wing, which will honor the greatest fights in UFC history. For an historical perspective, all fights considered must have taken place at least five calendar years prior to the induction. For the July 11 class, the fight inducted would have to have taken place prior to December 31, 2010.”The UFC Hall of Fame has an important job — it not only celebrates greatness but it helps pass stories of the greatest athletes and fights in UFC history on to the next generation of fight fans,” said UFC President Dana White. “We’re looking forward to announcing the class of 2015 and what is going to be a great induction event on July 11.”White also noted that there are preliminary plans to house a physical UFC Hall of Fame location in Las Vegas.In addition, there are plans going forward to make the annual inductions a major event on the UFC calendar, similar to Hall of Fame ceremonies in other sports. One of the key reasons for the categories is to remove criticism of two past inductees, Charles “Mask” Lewis, who started the Tapout clothing line, a key figure in the early days of the sport, but who never fought, and Stephan Bonnar, who was never a UFC champion or top contender, but whose fight with Forrest Griffin can be argued was the most important fight in UFC history.By this criteria, Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn, Randy Couture, Mark Coleman, Chuck Liddell, Matt Hughes, Tito Ortiz and Pat Miletich are in the Pioneer Era Hall of Famers. Forrest Griffin is the lone Modern Era fighter. Lewis is the lone Contributor and the April 9, 2005, fight with Griffin vs. Bonnar is the first fight.It is noted that fighters can be inducted in two different categories, like Griffin, so famous fights like Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva, Ortiz vs. Frank Shamrock or Hughes vs. Frank Trigg would be eligible. Of course, there are issues there, in the sense Wanderlei Silva and Shamrock are at odds with the promotion currently.There also becomes arguments over fights with great historical significance, such as Matt Serra’s upset over Georges St-Pierre or Couture’s final championship win over Tim Sylvia, or legendary wars like Chan Sung Jung vs. Leonard Garcia or Diego Sanchez vs. Clay Guida. The selections will be made annually by the UFC internally, with White as the leader of the panel.Frank Shamrock would also double as one of the strongest Pioneer Era Wing candidates based on UFC record, although it would surprise people for an induction since White has been negative when his name has been brought up in the past due to his being at odds with the promotion. Based on the criteria, the strongest Pioneer Era Wing candidate would actually be Anderson Silva, since his first MMA fight was in 1997.It is noted that this is a UFC Hall of Fame, but overall career achievements or contributions to the sport are noted. That becomes tricky. Fedor Emelianenko, for example, is a clear cut first ballot MMA Hall of Famer, but he never once fought in UFC. Fighters like Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Wanderlei Silva, Kazushi Sakuraba and Mirko Cro Cop are all strong MMA Hall of Fame candidates, and have fought in UFC, but their reasons for being Hall of Famers would be their fights and tenure in the Pride Fighting Championships. But UFC owns and markets the Pride, WEC and Strikeforce libraries and is attempting to get rights to all of the significant MMA libraries for its Fight Pass streaming service. Another question has to do with retirement. St-Pierre should be a slam-dunk first year candidate. It has been more than one year since he has fought. But he has not officially said he’s retired, even though he may never fight again. At this point, you probably need the 35th birthday, which would mean, if he announces his retirement or not, he would be eligible next year. Anderson Silva, the other strongest candidate not already in based on his UFC records, would be eligible now, having passed the age of 35 years ago. B.J. Penn, now 36, would also be eligible, as would active fighters Frank Mir, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, Vitor Belfort and Rampage Jackson based on their ages. Also eligible would be former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.There is the steroid question with Silva, but Gracie and Shamrock are in with steroid test failures. In the case of Gracie and Shamrock, their positive tests were for fights that took place after their inductions.Based on the establishment of the categories, the positive is that with them, there are no undeserving inductees already in. There should be little argument for Griffin vs. Bonnar as a fight, while there was criticism of Bonnar as a Hall of Famer caliber fighter.White in the past has talked about inducting the entire cast of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter, which becomes tricky. All are fighters, but most would better fit as Contributors given Griffin was the only fighter from that first season ever to win a championship.
