Spring Symbolizes Optimism

Nature teaches us to love, respect and believe in the goodness of life.
“I became aware of what true love and happiness are through nature. It was from the natural world that I could learn the most basic things, more than from education in school. When the seasons changed and I saw a beautiful bird flying, I followed the bird and watched to see how it built its nest and lived. There were times when I walked around for more than ten days to see a bird lay eggs and hatch them. I became deeply convinced of God’s mystery and love by looking at the cute and beautiful birds… Birds are made to be hatched through the warmth of their parent’s body and their parental love… Mother’s love in the bird’s world is also very strong. When someone comes and tries to take away the baby bird, the parents try to protect it, even risking their own lives.” – Sun Myung Moon
“Respect all things as holy things. Respect all men as holy men. Respect yourself as a holy person. Respect your mind as holy. Respect your body as holy. Pay deep respect to all people, no matter what kind of person they may be.” – Sun Myung Moon
