The first Hoon Dok Hae of the New Year according to the solar calendar was held on January 1, 2014. 155 leaders in Korea participated. Before the reading, True Mother stated the motto for 2014: "Let us become true owners of Cheon Il Guk who practice true love in resemblance to our Creator, the Heavenly Parent!" and asked that we uphold this motto up until 2020.
True Mother spoke about environmental problems in the world which have become more serious recently. She said, "We shouldn't forget Heavenly Parent in our daily life. During our earthly life, we should preserve the Earth well which Heavenly Parent, the Creator made."
Then she said, "What we need to focus on is outreach. We need to preserve well this beautiful world of creation in which our Heavenly Parent invested utmost effort, by expanding the reach of our foundation." She further emphasized that "We, in becoming the owner, must take the lead in this."
True Mother said, "Those who have no sense of ownership for all things will fade away. We need to have true ownership! As we restore this nation and the world let us not forget this for even a day, an hour or even a minute until 2020. Let us think and think again, receiving heaven's wisdom, and then go forward changing the nation and the world mobilizing all the methods, all our ability and everything that we are capable of as humans. Without having changed them, there will be no future for us. We have to change them."
"We need to become true filial sons and daughters and patriots who can offer results every month that will give our Heavenly Parent, the Creator, cause to trust us and be happy. Don't become the people who just come and go; become the people who practice ownership and a sense of responsibility. These are words of blessing promising a new start for the New Year."
Mrs. McDevitt read from the Cheon Seong Gyeong regarding the existence and attributes of God. After watching a video clip, True Mother said, "Now is the time to offer results before Heaven. Going forward, use different methods from the ones you have used before. Be always focused and productive and you will survive. More specifically, find creativity in your ability."
True Mother said, "Let's have a meaningful life of offering results before Heaven." Then she asked the participants to applaud to express their new resolution for 2014.
After the meeting, participants had breakfast and played yute together.
