  28. 28.  The fastest, easiest way to find the bestmethod is to adopt the best mans techniquefor yourself. You have to standardize yourmethod of doing things. You must have aclear idea of what you are going to do, andall your members must know what they aregoing to do.

If you areconfident of having the best way, do not justinsist that your members follow your way. If oneof them comes up to suggest his own idea, evenif you think he is wrong, do not say, "No, justhush up and listen to me." Rather, try to find thegood points in his suggestion and agree with himon those. If you come to realize that someone isactually better than you in some ways, then youcan always accept suggestions from him. Youneed to have vast information.Sun Myung Moon

  36. 36.  If you deeply want to learn more about Godthen that desire becomes like an invisibleantenna and God and the spirit world willcommunicate thoughts and feelings to you.The most profound experiences will comewhen you really shed tears and want to seeme in the midst of difficulties. Then spirituallyI will appear in person and explain exactlywhat the difficulty is and how to solve it.Sun Myung Moon
  37. 37.  Always remember one thing--God has neverforgotten you. You may have forgotten Him, butHe will never forget you. So as long as you arecalled to go this way, do it; that is the best wayfor you. No one is more qualified to complainthan I am, but if I started complaining, it wouldmake a mountain. Instead I dig deeper, likegoing down in a mine, and I find even moreprecious jewels. This has always been true.Actually the one who complains cannot goforward because he is putting limits on himself.Nobody is making him stop except himself.Sun MyungMoon
