Love

Love (hanja character)

사랑 (Hangul)
愛 (Hanja)

The character “e” 愛 (love) refers to two persons. What kind of two persons are they? They are persons who unite centering on true love, and thus become the center of the harmony between vertical heaven and horizontal earth. This means that the starting point for bringing about the harmony of heaven and earth is the love of two people.

Love is liked and welcomed by all people. Everyone desires to be born, to live, and to die surrounded by love.

Love is the common property of all humanity. It is a symbol of the will and power of the Heavenly Parent.

In one who has devoted his life to love and loves creation with all his heart, even flowers bloom differently and birds want to build their nests in the yard.

Love is unchanging because it is the center of all life’s forces.

Love and happiness absolutely cannot be experienced alone.

Love begins with sacrifice, self-giving, self-denial.

Love is destined for others, not for oneself. The parent exists for the love of the child. The child exists for others and for the Parent.

Love is the highest law and the sacred bond that binds two or more beings into a harmonious whole.

Sun Myung Moon. True Parents 5.1

하나님으로부터 분립된 2성(二性)의 실체상대기준(相對基準)을 조성하여 수수작용( 授受作用)을 함으로써 사위기대(四位基臺)를 이루려 할 때, 그들이 하나님의 제3대상으로 합성일체화(合性一體化)하기 하여 주체대상에게 주는 정적(情的) 힘을 사랑이라 하고, 대상주체에게 돌리는 정적 힘을 (美)라고 다. 그러므로 랑의 힘은 동적(動的)이요, 의 자극은 정적(靜的)이다.

When two entities, discrete manifestations of God’s dual characteristics, form a common base and seek to unite as the third object partner to God and establish a four position foundation, they will engage in give and take action. In accomplishing this, the emotional force that the subject partner gives to the object partner is called love, and the emotional force that the object partner returns to the subject partner is called beauty. The force of love is active, and the stimulation of beauty is passive.

Exposition of the Divine Principle (Creation 4.3.1)

그러나 주체(主體)와 대상(對象)이 합성일체화하면 에도 사랑이, 사랑에도 가 내포되 는 것이다.

However, when the subject partner and object partner become completely one in harmony, love is found within beauty and beauty is found within love.
