理想 (이상) [isang] – ideal
When Heavenly Parent created His first son and daughter, He wanted them to become better than Himself. In the usual sense, this seems absurd – and yet, think about it for a minute. When we as parents look at our children, we wish them boundless love and hope. We want them to grow up and achieve things we could only dream of.
Likewise, our Heavenly Parent wants to give unlimited gifts to His children. It is not enough for him to give only one hundred percent; He would like to give thousands of times more than He has. This is the essence of true love – to give everything to the end, and then forget about what was given. In contrast to those who count how much has already been given and decide that it is enough, for the Creator it is never enough.
Moreover, God created our world in order to find an object of love. Everything in His creation — parents and children, husbands and wives, and all things — was created in pairs so that couples would complement each other and embody true love. For example, parents live for the sake of their children, and children live for the sake of their parents, husbands live for the sake of their wives, and wives live for the sake of their husbands. Everything in creation was created to live and give for the sake of others.
If the ideal of true love were embodied in the family of the first people, this family would mark the beginning of an ideal world, starting with one family and reaching the level of the clan, nation and the whole world. Our world would become a world of true love.
