True Parents, who had left Korea for Las Vegas on Dec. 14, 2011, came back to Korea on Jan. 1, 2012 at 6:20 a.m. at the Incheon international airport. A ceremony for their victorious return to Korea was held at the Cheon Jeong Gung where True Parents cut a cake and received flowers, and Hoon Dok Hae started right after.

The following are some of Father's words at the meeting.

"Why did you come here? For your own success? There is no way for your own success. There can't be the success only for you. When a cock crows and a dog barks at dawn, you have to come to the Hoon Dok Hae room. After I am finished with the Las Vegas providence, the only thing I can leave is this speech file (which contains his speech "Cosmic Assembly for the Proclamation for the Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind, and the Substantial Word of God."). Each of you has this file, don't you? ('Yes.') Without this, there can't be your existence, your wish or hope. Have you done 해원성사 (解怨成事: accomplishment of liberating resentment or grudge)? I mean have you done 해원성사 before (talking about) the ideal of creation and the principle of creation? Have you done 해원성사 for your eyes, nose, mouth, ears, or head? Right after Adam fell, God called him but he hid himself. When God called him, he should have said 'Yes, Father.' Are you in the position where you can respond to God saying 'Yes, Father' when He calls you?

Why did you come here? Did you come here to receive something? Answer me! When I arrive at the airport, hundreds of times more people should have been there to welcome me. For example, if president Myeong Bak Lee comes back after he had concluded to settle heaven and earth, not only Koreans but also all Asian people would have welcomed him. But there was nobody that I wanted to see this morning. Even if I called all the leaders and members to come here this morning, only some appeared, saying, 'Everybody came.' Is this the place where only some people come to stay?

This morning, I have to go to the Ocean Cheon Jeong Gung (at Geomundo). There is nobody there either. I am not stupid. For what reason until now have I been persecuted and criticized in the US, the whole world, and at any place I stayed? I have nowhere to go. You chant "참부모님 태평성대 억만세: In the reign of prosperity and tranquility, long live True Parents!" in order for me to live long, but don't have such a dream. When the time has come, I will go to the spirit world where I have to do so many things. I can't bear with you, who chant that and say 'Please live longer with us on earth.'"

"To neglect the tradition of our precepts and do whatever you wish is like making your mother or her sister as your wife."

"74% of humankind have Mongolian spots at birth. That is the statistic number from the spirit world. In order to educate them gathering 3,000, 30,000, or 300,000 people at each time, it will take years."

Then he talked about absolute zero (-273.15 °C), a boat that can run on the ice, and submarines, and lamented that no participants seemed interested in them.

"I wouldn't exchange this speech file with all your assets. This is page 74. Those who attend (True) parents' wedding ceremony this time will receive this file and I will not give this to anybody later."

"Before the fall, was it 종횡 (縱橫: vertical and horizontal) or 횡종 (horizontal and vertical)? Was it 상하 (上下: upper and lower) or 하상 (lower and upper)? ('Vertical and horizontal. Upper and lower.') You have to know that these words came from the life of whispering and discussing with God!"

"(Raising his voice) Do you know what kind of place this is where you are now? Some say 'After having gone and come back in the world, Rev. Moon became 93 years old, his time to pass away is coming soon and he is now in his second childhood.' I have to establish new mathematics."

"Each of you was born with a specific lifespan. When a man and woman are not husband and wife and a baby in the womb is aborted, the baby goes to the spirit world and tries to pull them over into the fog. The spirit of the aborted baby will never disappear since they were created to live eternally. The baby will say, 'I could have become the pillar of love between my parents but they killed me.' Then the invisible black and white clouds, and the fog will block them in their path and chaos will take place. They will have car accidents and die suddenly."

"In the principle and this speech file, can the word 어둑신 (Ohdookshin) be found?

(Katsumi: Ohdookshin is a North Korean dialect, which is also called 어둑서니, or 어둑귀신. it means in the dictionary 'something in the dark night which doesn't actually exist but looks like it does.' Father seems to use this term 'a spiritual being' which exists at the crossroad. Rev. Yu once interpreted this as the God of Night.)

What is ohdookshin? ('When Father was a child, Father saw it at the crossroad.') At any crossroad, ohdookshin appeared to me. When I was alone at the crossroads, I couldn't see it. But later in my life when the order was not clearly made between Father, brothers and sisters and me, and there were conflicts, I had to cross over all the crossroads of east, west, south and north. How could I do that? Heaven sent me a ghost called ohdookshin. Every time I was at the crossroad, I knew which is east, west, south or north, and the ohdookshin, for example, waited in the west, and talked down to me saying 'Yong Myeong! You came here again. Today your direction is different since I am in the west and you are in the east." A direction could be at any degree, and if you can't be sure which direction is east, west, south or north, ohdookshin would sit on you pushing and pulling you."
