When I was in Uganda I traveled to the local schools and taught the kids about love and Unification meditation, and many kids joined Unification groups at their school.
One of the most active members among those students who used to attend my Unification classes is a girl named Irene. She is very serious about learning to love. She is also doing a great work of sharing her experiences about love with her fellow students at school. I am still communicating with Irene and I’m so proud of her.
After I came to the USA Irene faced a challenge in her family. Irene doesn’t have parents, so she lives with her aunt. Her aunt’s husband didn’t like to have Irene living in the same house, and he argued a lot with Irene and made her unhappy. Still Irene used to share my teachings about love with her aunt, and that helped her aunt a lot because she was having difficulty with her husband who was being selfish.
One day the husband told Irene’s aunt that he wanted Irene to move away from the house, and said if she wouldn’t do that, he would move out.
Irene’s aunt did something very brave. She told him that Irene is not going anywhere, and said, “If you decide to move because of her, you better go away.” Then the man moved out and left their three kids with their mom.
That was hard for Irene’s aunt, but she was happy with her choice, because she realized that the man doesn’t have love—he was just being selfish. Since then Irene and her aunt started a new life together and Irene’s aunt asked me to keep communicating with her and sharing with her about commitment and love. I agreed to do that and we are still having wonderful communications up to this day.
Now Irene and her aunt are taking care of each other. Also Irene told me that they started putting my teachings into action, they do meditation together, and they are seeing a very big difference in their family.
Irene’s story is a good example of the benefit of love and Unification meditation for life. Many students benefited from my teachings because they were lacking in awareness about love. When I taught them how to love, most of them started to be open with their friends and their families about their own challenges. And their parents started appreciating me for the big difference I made to their kids. For example, the kids became more responsible in their families and also adults became more responsible than before.
