International President Sun Jin Moon’s Special Lecture at the JTGC
The “HJ Cheonwon: 2017 Japan Top Gun College Workshop” (JTGC) has been held at the main hall in the Cheonseong Wanglim Palace while the 1,160 people attended for 10 days from February 16th.
In the morning of the second day on the 17th, International President Sun Jin Moon and her husband visited and gave us the love of True Parents. International President Sun Jin Moon first did Hoon Dok of True Parents’ words quoted from “As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen” as follows:
“A true life is a life in which we abandon our private desires and live for the public good. This is a truth taught by all major religious leaders past and present, East and West, whether it be Jesus, Buddha, or the Prophet Mohammed.···
Just as love is not for our own sake, so happiness and peace are not for ourselves. Just as love can never exist without a partner, happiness and peace cannot exist without a partner. All these can exist only in the context of a relationship with a partner. Nothing can be accomplished if we love alone. We cannot be happy alone or speak of peace alone. Since a partner is what enables us to have happiness and peace, the partner is more important than we are.
A person may live eighty years but only spend about seven years living for the public good.
Only the seven years that he lived for the public good will remain and be remembered by posterity. Those seven years are the trace that is left in the world of a life that lasted eighty years.“(pp.257~258)
“We receive our lives in love, live by sharing love, and return into the midst of love. It is important that we live our lives in a way that we can leave a legacy of love behind us.”(p.263)
After International President Sun Jin Moon finished the Hoon Dok, she took some time to answer questions from the trainees. Through yoga meditation, she taught the trainees how to experience the love of True Parents, and concluded with the following message:
“So, I want you now to imagine this enemy as a loved one. Do not let someone’s darkness extinguish or diminish the light of God’s love in you. Use the power of the divine breath of life in you. You choose to breath in deeply and allow life and love to flourish, and let go of all fears and things that no longer serve you. Allow your mind to focus on those feelings for your loved one.
Feel the deep love, openness, eternal divine light and goodness flow from your heart to this enemy. Notice how the image of this enemy changes, as you share deep compassion, care, kindness, higher consciousness and divine love. Visualize the shift in your heart as it opens and loves your enemy as your loved one.
Take a moment to feel this loving victory. Feel the divine light energy that is in your heart carry and give life to each living being and the whole of creation. When we all live as one united family under God, there can be no darkness.
Feel God’s love and True Parents’ love fill your heart with unconditional love and infinite peace. Turn to your neighbor and share a glorious hug with each other and offer a deep Kamsahamnida. Salanghamnida. Namaste.
How do you feel? Loved, powerful, energized, and victorious! Yes! You should! This is the power of True Love and True Parents’ and Heavenly Parent’s teaching.
Please practice this and Hoon Dok Hae every day. These are the pillars of light and wisdom that will allow you to overcome any obstacle! Aju!”

Lastly, International President Sun Jin Moon presented bracelets to two trainees, and took a picture with them. She also wrapped a scarf given to her by True Parents around the neck of the representative of the female trainees saying, “Please become a peace-loving global citizen.” It was a moving moment for everyone.
