Speech given at the Leaders' Conference, June 27, 1983
This is a new chapter, a new era, a new history. You are the master of this new history. In order to do that, you must have determination. Without that determination, you will not even get near it. Once you determine to risk your life for that purpose, you can separate yourself from Satan; Satan will have no
business with you anymore. Don't try to preserve your life. Go to the land of
death. That means that God will take your sacrifice, and God will never let you die. That is the Principle.
My legs are always swollen for some reasons not caused by using leg muscles. (So, I experience much discomforts and pains) with the overuse of my legs from standing on the deck so long. However, I say, "Thank You, God! I have not yet died; I am still breathing. God, I can go on."
One night there was an accident and I collapsed in the bathroom. Mother does not know, but I fainted. When I got up, the first words I spoke were, "Thank You God, I have not died. I can go on and on and on." That is the kind of tradition I laid in the Unification Church. How can we complain? If we disregard this tradition, America will become a very dismal and tragic country. When you inherit this tradition, America will be glorious and prosperous. Everlasting blessings will come to you if you do inherit this.
