Sun Myung Moon's Teaching: See Through the Eyes of Love

Sun Myung Moon's Teaching:
See Through the Eyes of Love

Learn to see through the eyes of love; see life through the eyes of love and everything becomes beautiful to behold. 

How awesome it is to see through the eyes of love and how there may be a way to do that... as a result, every aspect of your life would somehow be better. To practice true love, we must look at everything through the eyes of true love - our spouse, children, neighbors, all people and all of nature. Then everyone and everything becomes beautiful to behold.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon truly saw with eyes of love. Everyone who reads his testimony, Autobiography, is moved with the beautiful lessons for wise living. His childhood that I recently had the pleasure of reading about had transforming effect on many readers life. This tender and difficult story of loving the world brought a stream of tears to my eyes many times around. I believe that this young man, now age of 90, can teach us all a few principles for seeing beyond the oyster shell of a beastly appearing man in order to behold a precious pearl imbedded in the heart of a charming child of God.


In the end, the only thing that really matters, teaches Rev. Moon, is not how much knowledge, status or possessions we have gained in our lifetimes. What really matters is how much we have loved others.

If misunderstood and persecuted in the past, Rev. Moon is now being broudly recognized precisely for this matter - his ability to love unconditionally and remove bariers between religions, ideologies and ethnic groups. As Irving Hexham - Professor of Religious Studies, wrote:

"Clearly, the Rev. Moon is a great religious visionary who ranks among the greatest religious figures of history. Clearly, he is a very gifted, far sighted, individual who has a keen sense of history and God’s providence. Clearly, he is a charismatic figure who attracts followers by his example, lifestyle and teaching."

In Matthew 5:38–48 Jesus says, “When you love without limits, you are like God.” There is much in all this (Mt 5:38-48) which calls loudly for solemn reflection. How to love our enemy? How to transform this world into a world of true love if we ourselves cannot see through God's eyes - through the eyes of true love?

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.

How did the Lord perceive the sinful woman? Instead of listing all of her sins thus condemning her, He just said, 'where are your accusers?'. When none were found, He told her to go and sin no more. He didn't look on her as sinful. He saw through the eyes of love.

When looking at the faults of others, we are in no way looking to the Lord. How can we? Our eyes are focused elsewhere into the darkness of sin. In The Imitation of Christ, Thomas a Kempis writes: "Love is a great thing, yea, a great and thorough good: by itself it makes every thing that is heavy, light, and it bears evenly all that is uneven."

And here is the man, Rev. Moon, who was most hated and persecuted in life. Yet he never succumb to hatred but found the way to love his enemies, the way to even win their hearts. His only strategy was to give and forget, to try to love his enemies again and again, until all barriers and walls are removed solely by the practice of true love - living for the sake of others.

God's ultimate purpose for creating us, teaches Father Moon, "is to experience joy through relating with ideal families filled with true love... To become God's children, our first responsibility is to resemble Him. We need to embody true love." Family is that school of love, he explains:

"The ideal family is the model for living together in peace. The ideal family is the nest where we live and learn to become one. There we have foundation of love and respect between parents and children, shared trust and love among siblings." - Sun Myung Moon

Yet, his vision for true love transcends all boundaries. Hes aim is to empower "White and Black, Jews and Muslims, Orientals and Westerns, and all people of all races to live as one human family." To reach that we have to love others more than ourselves.

I learned to see through the eyes of true love from the example of Rev. Moon. Once I start to see life through the eyes of love, everything becomes beautiful to behold.
