28. At a New Year’s Day ceremony, the Master said, “By becoming new persons with the coming of the New Year, we ought to be able to build a new nation and a new world with our own strengths and rejoice together in a new paradise of Il-Won. The path to becoming a new person lies in offering ever new meritorious contributions to the world by cultivating good habits everyday with renewed resolve, by taking care of antiquated practices and enterprises, and in recovering our self-nature that is originally complete by continuing to cultivate our original nature.”
