The following is a most remarkable document. Most major religions hold the concept that life exists after death and that a person's soul continues on after his or her physical body passes away. The place where spirits go after earthly life is called the spirit world. Where in the spirit world a person goes is determined by the quality and character of his or her life on Earth, especially the depth and expression of love and unselfishness.
The following is a transcript of testimonies conveyed from the spirit world following a seminar held there for 120 men and women who were Communist leaders while they were alive on Earth. The seminar explained the Divine Principle and Unification Thought, teachings of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, founder of the Unification Church and truly a man of God.
The reader will note a number of consistent themes expressed by the Communist participants, including profound remorse and regret for their actions on Earth and their subsequent experiences of painful and degrading conditions in the spirit world. But without exception, each one expresses profound gratitude for being given the opportunity to hear the Divine Principle and Unification Thought teachings since this knowledge helps to free them from their suffering in the spirit world. Importantly, they also plead with Communists living on Earth to renounce that God-denying ideology. For it is only by helping to liberate people on Earth from the bondage of Communism that these Communist leaders in the spirit world can receive their own freedom. They all also recognize their sad state of existence in the spirit world is totally the result of their own actions while on Earth. They understand that no one is punishing them but that they are reaping the natural consequences of their evil lives on Earth.
Those participating in this seminar included the founders and leaders of Communism and Communist ideology from the Soviet Union and Europe, China, Japan and Korea. Perhaps most moving are the testimonies of those who have caught a glimpse of the absolute and eternal love that Heavenly Father has for each person, regardless of his or her mistakes on Earth. They can see clearly that God exists and is working to save His children.
It is our fervent hope that by reading and reflecting on these testimonies, you can gain a deeper understanding of the significant meaning of life on Earth and in the spirit world.

"God exists as Parent of humankind."
I attended here to confirm that I, Marx, affirm God's existence and that He is the Parent of all humankind. I denied God and shouted loudly with confidence to the extent that people believed me more than God. Now I'd like to reveal my experience with God to the whole world. I met Dr. Lee for the first time in the spirit world and was very attracted by having several talks about theory with him.
I felt that my theoretical paradigm was crumbling as I listened to his Godism lecture. At the same time my pride was damaged severely. When I listened to Godism, I thought it was a dream, but it was not. Then a beam of light came into my heart like a red-hot bullet. After moving through the air with the light, I came to see a miserable scene. It thought it likely that I was in Hell. Then I heard a voice saying, "Look at that. The poor children of God are groaning here. Save them. Be responsible for them. God is the Parent of all human beings."
My whole body was covered with sweat, as if it had been raining. I saw a very miserable scene. My chest was choking and was in such pain that I couldn't stand it. I told Dr. Lee what I experienced. Dr. Lee said, "That's your responsibility. Think it over." After my experience of God's light, I have felt God always with me. Dr. Lee opened a new theoretical perspective to me.
All the thinkers in this cosmos! I, Marx, have met God. I have found that He is the Parent of humankind. I have felt the greatness of God's love. I clearly convey to you who God is. He is the Parent of humankind. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on the Earth, brought this fact to light. The Divine Principle and Unification Thought express the original standards that open the way to salvation, so you must read them. I ask this of you seriously. I clearly say that I apologize for my past to God and True Parents and love them and am proud of them. Marx, April 18, 2002.
"The Divine Principle saved me."
When I look at the harmonized cosmos and the organization of human beings, I have no excuse for my past years of denying God. I expect my example to become a lesson for the people on Earth and in the spirit world. And I want to tell you the impression I have from the Divine Principle education. I would like to clearly and honestly point out the way humankind must go. Don't believe in other gods, but place your hope in God.
Because of my strong pride, I neglected God when I was on the Earth. I could see nothing but actual beings and thought that those who believe in God are weak people. I spent my life on the Earth without knowing that life on Earth is very short. I, who denied God and spirits, was very miserable when I came to the spirit world. I doubted that life here was connected with that on the Earth, even after I lived here. How can I express even a part of my bitter heart? I have no way to deny that I, who denied God and this world when I was on the Earth, now live in the spirit world.
People on Earth, please listen to my confession. There were many questions about life in the spirit world that I couldn't answer. But after I learned the Divine Principle and Unification Thought with Marx, I began to find the answers to my questions. From the moment my questions were answered, I was overwhelmed with the fact that I was a sinner. Dr. Lee saved me. I had a chance to see God. It was so painful that I wanted to commit suicide. Unification Thought explained the existence of God to me clearly and in detail. Then a strange fear and terror came upon me and I had no idea what to do.
Then suddenly a giant appeared. I couldn't look at him because of an inexplicable fear. He said to me in a silent voice, "Look at me," and then he walked away without showing his face. I followed him, but he suddenly disappeared. It was very strange. I looked for him further and I found him standing in front of a big picture. He said calmly, "Follow me. It is clear that you must go, find your way, and come up with a solution." But I couldn't stand the fear. I asked Dr. Lee who he was. Dr. Lee told me that he was Reverend Moon who brought to light the Divine Principle. He said that Reverend Moon is the Parent of humankind and explained all the circumstances surrounding that. I couldn't stand the pain. What was I to do? I anguished greatly. But Dr. Lee gave me courage. "As God is the parent and the substance of love, He will forgive everything. Now what you have to do is to follow your mind. God and True Parents lead their children with forgiveness and love." This calmed my mind and gave me courage.
You people on the Earth! Philosophers who think God doesn't exist must brace themselves and observe everything. I experienced the existence of God as the Parent of humankind. And the world after death exists in your future. Please grasp God during your lifetime. If you don't want to anguish in a position as miserable as mine, study the Divine Principle and Unification Thought and receive Reverend Moon's guidance. I beg that of you. I experienced the message, "Follow me," from Reverend Moon. You people on the Earth! Please attend God and receive Reverend Moon's guidance. I feel that to convey this message is my mission. Please follow my message. Seek for God. He is the Parent of humankind. Engels, April 18, 2002.
"Re-arrange everything in Communist countries as soon as possible."
It is proper if you define me as blind because I insisted that only things we can see exist. My only hope is that all Communists on Earth come to know Godism as soon as possible. After a long interval, I recognized that I was dead and existing in the world of life after death. That was because I couldn't distinguish between life on the Earth and in the spirit world. What kind of place is this? Life here in some ways cannot be distinguished from life on the Earth. For me, who believed that there would be nothing after death, the situation here was very confusing.
But I knew nothing about the eternal spirit. The more I experienced the spirit world, the more I was filled with regret. I live here with the mind of a beggar, drawn into a miasma of countless conflicts. It is natural that Communist countries die out. I had already concluded that somebody would bring down Communist countries on the Earth. I came to know a tremendous truth here.
Dr. Lee, who was taught by Reverend Moon on the Earth, taught me Unification Thought and the Divine Principle perspective on the cosmos, the world and the shape of future. Because I had lived in a state of confusion for such a long time, I felt pain even as I learned that. No one can accept my stance as a rebel against God. My selfishness and ignorance on the Earth made me like this. But recognizing the truth is ultimately better than forever enduring the pain brought on by ignorance.
God certainly exists. He exists as the Parent of humankind. In spite of that, I put myself on the vanguard of Communist revolution with a sword in my hands, shouting out that there are no parents. I made their hearts ache. I hope all the Communists on the Earth clearly and seriously remember my experience.
Dr. Lee told me that he had no way but to abandon the position of a physician when he learned the Divine Principle brought to light by Reverend Moon and was released from all the problems of his life. Dr. Lee lectured on the Divine Principle only for me many times and he counseled me directly. One day I felt intolerable suffering in my heart from what I had learned in the Divine Principle. To rid myself of the pain, I was walking around. Then I saw an old woman suddenly fall down in front of me. She was bleeding, with her hands grasping a knife stuck in her breast. It occurred to me that I wanted to do something good, so I extended my hands to her and tried to pull out the knife. Suddenly I heard a fearful voice. "I, God, am still alive. You are my child." Only the voice was left and the old woman disappeared. My ears were stunned.
I announce to Communists: God, Jehovah, certainly exists and He is the Parent of humankind. The Communist counties will perish without fail. The ideal of Communism will be realized by its being engrafted upon Unification Thought. The important thing is to not be an un-filial child. We are blessed by attending our physical parents, so what can we expect of the people who don't know the way to attend God, the Cosmic Parents? Their fate can be nothing other than a sorrowful death. If you can't believe my words, look at the harmony of nature. Though God is the Creator of nature, how much sincerity do we human beings offer Him? We must know for a surety that humankind has been created as the children of God. I made up my mind to keep my position as a child of God, even though I have such a big deficiency. I have an earnest request for you. There is only one way for Communist countries to live and that is to follow Reverend Moon's guidance. Please study the Divine Principle in detail. Please receive the thought of Reverend Moon and study it deeply. If you do so, you will attend God more truly than the thinkers or politicians of the Free World. This is the only way to live truly. If you follow my words, it will release me from unimaginable suffering and agony. I beg this of you. Communist countries must re-arrange everything as soon as possible. I met God. The spirit doesn't die, but lives. This is my last wish, given in blood from the world of Heaven. "God is alive. God is the Parent of humankind." Lenin, April 19, 2002.
"You must know, believe and attend God."
We live only once on the Earth and in one unique historical period. I was a dictator and a madman. It would have been better had my life on Earth not existed. This is my story in a nutshell. Even after studying Unification Thought and the Divine Principle, I have not found a way to indemnify my sin. The Divine Principle brings me into terrible agony. I have no intention of denying the Divine Principle, but because there is no way to save me, I am very sad and in pain.
But I am glad to be given this chance to inform the people on the Earth about the reality of the spirit world. I'd like to tell this to all the Communists on the Earth and appeal to them. Friends in Communist countries, I am Stalin. You have had wrong thinking. As the way you are going is not the way you should go, you must turn to the right path as soon as possible. We Communists lived courageously according to our beliefs, but why could we not control the time of our death? A human being consists of two parts, the physical life and the spiritual life. There is no exception to the rule that all physical bodies die and all spirits go to the eternal world.
One's life on the Earth determines the place one will live in the Heavenly world. Our beliefs are wrong. The worst of it is that we deny and ignore God, who is the origin of the cosmos. Though we are incomplete existences, who know neither the origin nor the destiny of our lives, we shout out loudly that God, the origin of all things, doesn't exist. I suffer with pain here because my life was like that on the Earth. I can't stand this pain.
The God we denied is the Parent of humankind. God is not a theological existence, but is our Parent. How foolish we have been! I am Stalin. You have seen people attending God and celebrating Christmas in your countries. You must have laughed at them, thinking they are weak.
But those at whom we laughed live well in this world. It is certain that they didn't go to Hell. When we laughed at them, they and God loved us. We live in the bottom of Hell here. Do you understand what it means? People here don't treat each other as human beings, but as material. If there were any means to rid myself of this pain, I would do it. The place one dwells in the spirit world cannot be decided by power, honor or gold. It is decided by the sincerity of your life on the Earth. First, know and believe God and attend Him. Second, completely clarify your way of life.
Dr. Lee told me that God forgives everything, as He is the Parent of humankind, but I am still in pain, so I know that I haven't been released yet. Please receive the will of Reverend Moon completely, open your minds and build churches for the worship of God and hold worship services. Reverend Moon reflects the image of God, even though he is a man, and he is struggling intensely to save Communist countries. His thought is messianic, especially for the Communist countries. You must receive his ideology of peace immediately. Because God is alive, only attending God will save the Communist countries.
Friends, please save me. Please liberate me. When your way of life changes according to the teaching of Godism, I will be liberated in the spirit world. God certainly exists. And life in the spirit world is eternal. My heart longs for release from Hell. I, the dictator who denied God, cry out to all the Communist countries on the Earth. Please believe in God and seek for Him. I beg of you for that from the spirit world. Stalin, April 19, 2002.
"I want to burn up atheistic materialism completely."
I know that the Divine Principle is God's truth that is brought to light by Reverend Moon through revelation. But even before I learned Unification Thought and the Divine Principle, I realized I had lived wrongly. From the moment I realized that I was in the spirit world, I repented of my life on the Earth. If there is nothing after death, man is no different from animals.
My life on the Earth was not that of a man, but of a cow or pig. Please realize that I compared myself with animals. How comfortable animals must be without self-consciousness! I didn't know God. I didn't deny God, but I didn't think about nor feel agony about God or spiritual matters. But my spirit certainly is alive here, so I can't help thinking on it.
How can I clarify my sin? I lived as a leader of Communists standing for atheism. To find the way is very difficult. Thinking about my spiritual life, I'd like to burn up atheistic materialism completely, not even by Unification Thought or the Divine Principle. I have been regretting my life on the Earth in misery and extreme sorrow. I even envy animals, which don't entertain thoughts.
Please forgive me, God. I lived a wrongful life on the Earth. God is the Parent of humankind. Can you forgive my extremely un-filial behavior? Reverend Moon, True Parents of humankind and Father of humankind! Please save the Communist countries! And please teach Godism to them thoroughly. I will lay the indemnity conditions for my sinful life. I thoroughly believe God clearly exists and is the Parent of humankind. Trotsky, April 19, 2002.
"The Communist countries will perish without fail."
People in the Communist countries lived their lives thinking that there is nothing after death. I lived my life like that, too. But when I look at myself in the spirit world, I feel weary. There is no meaning to regretting my life on the Earth, but I feel thoroughly that it was not a truly human life. I feel that I should disappear to a place where nobody can go for a long time.
God actually exists. I can't understand why human beings do not treat each other as human, or why they don't reflect upon their human shape in the mirror, in spite of the fact that they are God's creation. Even God longs for human beings to realize His ideal existence as the Creator. I realized that Communism is a very fearful thought after I got here. Many intellectuals influenced by Communism must change their atheistic way of thinking as soon as possible when they arrive here, as they see that their lives are reported on here.
If you can't believe it, think over the way human beings are built. Human beings have dual characteristics. They have mind and body. The order of the mind is different from that of body. It is a fact that there is a spirit world where the mind can live. God is the master of the mind, and He has been the Parent of humankind from the beginning, and we have been His children. If you ignore this, thinking it unreasonable, you will inevitably become a sad, miserable and suffering spirit like us. It's up to you. But Communist countries will perish without fail. They won't just perish, but miserably perish. That is because God exists and He is the Parent of humankind. It is very natural for Communism, which denies God's existence and treats humankind as material, to perish.
Communists on the Earth: please look at the lives of Christians. God is there and feels pain in His heart looking at His children who follow the Communist paradigm and live without knowing their parents. You must prepare to live attending God as soon as possible. The Communist countries on the Earth will perish. I found this fact thoroughly confirmed here in the spirit world. Reverend Moon on the Earth is the one whom God sent to save Communists, and he is the Messiah and True Parents.
The Communist countries will revive by learning his thought and being guided by him. Please change your way of life to that of Godism. Abandon the Communist way of thinking. If you go on, not only your lives on the Earth will end, but also your spiritual life will thoroughly collapse. There is no way to live under Communism. God exists and the spirit world certainly exists. I'd truly like to appeal from the spirit world for the Communist countries to change direction. Khrushchev, April 19, 2002.
"When Communist countries receive Godism, they will revive."
I'm grateful that I, who couldn't treat humankind according to our real value, was forgiven so that I can be included among the people. I'm also grateful that I was given a chance like this. Members and followers of the Communist Party, politicians, thinkers in Communist countries! I'd like to tell you from the spirit world of the wrongness of my life on the Earth. Please receive this seriously and clarify the priorities in your lives as soon as possible.
I didn't know of God's existence, nor did I recognize Him. I treated His children as if they were animals. I can't escape from my sin and the punishment that it brings. As I treated precious human beings as animals, I live here in a zoo. Do you understand what it means? Only animals live in a zoo. I live with them. Though my form is that of a human being with five senses, I live like an animal, eating with animals. Can you imagine how I feel?
Friends, God exists. All human beings are His precious children. And the physical body is necessary only on the Earth. Death is not the end of life, but there is the spirit world where the spirits of humankind live. Nobody interferes here in the spirit world. And one's position here is decided by the quality of one's life on the Earth.
Friends! I want to live with people. Trying to live with animals, I crawled on my hands and feet as an animal does. I was so lonely that I wanted to be friends with animals. So I tried to eat as an animal does instead of with my hands. I can describe my life here. When I was on the Earth, I insisted that God doesn't exist and I couldn't exhibit an authentic human nature. But if I correct your life on Earth by informing you of the facts here, then I can live with human beings here.
Friends! Communists place themselves under God's curse. Please leave it behind as soon as possible. You will perish if you don't. I checked out the facts thoroughly. I can be released after you change and center your lives on God. Friends! Don't be miserable like me. Please escape from your old lives now. You must live where people live even if it gives you a lot of difficulties. That is what I wish most.
Friends! This is the last favor I request. You must know clearly that God is the Parent of humankind. Reverend Moon has appeared on the Earth in order to save Communist countries with the mission of True Parents. God sent him and he is the Messiah for those suffering under Communism. You can live by following him and receiving guidance from him. Communist countries must apply Unification Thought and the Divine Principle in their organization. This is the only way your governments can be revived. If not, they will perish; not just perish, but die a miserable death. This is my serious cry from the spirit world. Please change your way of thinking to that of Godism as soon as possible. Brezhnev, April 20, 2002.
"Communism is in serious rebellion against God."
It is clear that God created man as His child and so man is the fruit of the sincerity and highest intellect of God. I couldn't live as a human being on the Earth. I committed a terrible sin in front of God, the Parent. I committed a cruel act when I was on the verge of coming to the spirit world from the Earth in order to avoid death. I was so cruel that I ate the liver of living man to save my own life. But nonetheless I came to the spirit world just as other people do. I found that death is not the end of everything, but that spirit world actually exists. Can you imagine what kind of punishment I endure here? I live in a stable and eat nothing but dog intestines. That is my life. It was not God who gave me this punishment. I put myself here.
Friends! I know you can't understand life in the spirit world. It is certain that there is a spirit world where our spirits live, and that God exists. I am revealing my cruel life to the public in order to be released from here. If Communism exists on the Earth, world peace will never come to pass. Communism and its ideology are in rebellion against God. So you will perish if you don't change to Godism. You don't just perish, but die a miserable death.
There is no way for me to escape from this place even though I make much effort to do so. Communism must fall. You must remember that. And you must study Unification Thought and the Divine Principle and receive Reverend Moon's guidance on the Earth. This is the only way that Communist countries can live. Change your way before you perish miserably. Renew all your organizations through Godism. If you don't want to be in the same place as my spirit here, change as soon as possible.
There is no getting around the Heavenly rule. The disaster spread by Communism will appear just as it is. Do you think God wants humanity to perish? God is love and He is the Parent of humankind. Remember this profoundly and change everything as soon as possible. Andropov, April 20, 2002.
"Take the side of the Unification movement centering on Godism."
I'm very grateful that I, who am suitable to be treated as a sinner, am being treated as a man. I certainly live and move here. I committed a big sin on the Earth, thinking that there would be nothing after death. I severely profaned God, our Creator.
I realized that I had lived wrongly before I studied Unification Thought and the Divine Principle, because I actually experienced that the invisible world exists. Though I denied the existence of God while I was on the Earth, I couldn't help but experience His existence keenly. Even though I couldn't feel God with my five senses, I felt my status as an abject sinner and an offender every day. I lived in fear and anxiety, as if God's curse might strike me in the dark. Then I felt even more suffering by learning Unification Thought and the Divine Principle. That was the whip of God's curse. And the Communists bring the curse upon themselves. I am suffering as I hear the painful sound, "the Communist Party will perish." This voice is so loud that it might split my eardrums.
Friends in the Communist Party! I am struggling and suffering under the curse I brought upon myself in the spirit world. Friends, please go the right way, correcting your mind. God is the Parent of humankind. As Reverend Moon on the Earth is making effort to save Communist countries with love and sincerity, and as he brought to light the Divine Principle and was named "True Parents" by God, please receive his guidance. He teaches that the Communist Party will eventually perish.
The Communists bring a curse upon themselves. Go the right way as soon as possible. Please study under Reverend Moon. The Russian Communist leaders are wandering here under their own curse. Participate in the Unification movement centering on Godism, which allows you to escape from the curse. Remember this. Chernenko, April 20, 2002.
"I will thoroughly apply Godism in my life."
If I could only return to the Earth, I would live as a true man. If there were somewhere invisible, I would hide myself there. I wished to have my followers worship me rather than God. I longed for them to worship me rather than God, even if He exists. How could a man such as me stand as a god with my mouth?
The four great saints tried to comfort me, telling me that God, as the Parent of humankind, forgives everything. Introducing Unification Thought and the Divine Principle, they kindly explained the mental suffering they endured until they unified in every respect. It was a very short period, but I was treated as a man. I would like to tell clearly to all the Christians and Communists on the Earth how I live here. I lived under an old tree, because everybody hated me. It was the only place I could hide. I lived under the old tree avoiding the hot and cold weather. I bet you can imagine the shape I was in. I feel liberated now that I have honestly talked to you.
My fiends and all people! Human beings will perish if they do not follow Godism. God exists and the spirit world clearly exists. Reverend Moon, True Parents, who illuminated the truth that God is the Parent of humankind, please save our Communist people. Thank you for the hard work and love you invest to save humankind by God's special order. As I am saved, I will live thoroughly according to Godism. Thank you. Mao Tse Tung, April 20, 2002.*
* Message from Dr. Lee: The four great saints and the leaders of the five major religions, who learned Divine Principle, visit the Communist leaders directly and ask them actively to participate in the seminar. Mohammad displays enthusiasm, lectures the Divine Principle, and helps me a lot. The reporter, Young Soon Kim.
"I was reborn by receiving True Parents' thought and Godism."
I was blinded by honor and power when I was on the Earth. I had no idea about the spirit world. I mocked God's existence. That was the entire result of my life on the Earth. The greatness of humankind is that God created us and that there is the spirit world. In spite of the reality that we are created to seek the value of humankind from that perspective, why couldn't I do so? Why was I so attracted to materialism and the temporal life?
Nobody here tells me where to stay or to go. But I can't be where I want to be. I wander around like a gypsy. I live with the fear of being found out for what I am. But one day a monk passing by told me that God exists. It was a strange relationship. I was glad that the monk believes in God and participated in this seminar. Is there another place like this? Everything is beautiful here. Who made everything peaceful, mild, clean and brilliant like this? The four great saints and the leaders of many religions gather there, help and respect each other, and read each other's mind by the look in their eyes and their facial expression.
The lecturers were teaching what they call the Divine Principle sincerely, purely and in detail. I could find no selfish desire in them. I compared my life with theirs. My being was filthy with repentance, regret and grief. I don't know for whom they presented the lecture, but it continued enthusiastically and went on and on. The four great saints comforted and encouraged the listeners. It is likely that the place with these characteristics is Paradise.
I could read through the expression on their faces that they kindly wished me to live with them there. I felt warmth melting my whole body before listening to the Divine Principle. I put aside everything. The fear of exposing what I am disappeared. I could feel that everything is new. I made up my mind to live here by disposing of my baggage of sin and repenting of every instance in which I mocked God.
The fact that Communism will perish is known throughout the cosmos. Reverend Moon, you who unified the four great saints, I will follow you. I will receive the thought of True Parents and will be reborn through Godism. Chen Du Xiu, April 20, 2002.
"Peace among men will be realized only if Communism disappears from the Earth."
How could I fail to realize that I lived wrongly on the Earth and that the spirit world is arranged so perfectly? This place has nothing to do with Earthly power, honor or wealth; these hold no sway as they do on the Earth. I was overly devoted to holding power on the Earth. My eyes were my downfall. It is time to reveal my reality to the world, but I hate this to be known.
I live here without any clothes. I could hide my lower parts, but if I do, countless people rush to me and expose what I am trying to hide. That is because I used my lower parts for my pleasure. I used my power to get all kinds of women. There is no one to stop people exposing me. People on the Earth cannot understand life here. You can never understand.
I have something I want to tell the people on the Earth. The spirit world certainly exists. You will be punished if you commit sin on the Earth. This is the rule. You can say that I am crazy because I tell of my life here, which is nothing to be proud of, but I do it for the sake of gaining my life. Don't believe in power, as I did.
God gave me the chance to save Communists by coming here and listening to the Divine Principle lectures. As I confess my sin, I'd like to tell you not to repeat the deeds I committed. The followers of Communism must change their way of thinking and consciousness structure.
Communism will perish. God clearly exists and He is the Parent of humankind. Reverend Moon has promulgated this education on the Earth for the sake of saving Communist countries. Follow his direction and discuss everything with him. As he is the True Parents, he loves all humankind. Only if you follow his guidance, can you find the way to live.
World peace among all men will be realized only if Communism disappears from the Earth. Remember my words. God exists and so does the invisible world. Study the Divine Principle. I truly beg this of you. Liu Shao Qi, April 21, 2002.
"Communism is not the truth."
I was thinking I was punished for not believing in but even at the same time not ignoring God. Under God's curse, I was unable to speak, but now I am blessed to be able to speak, and I'm grateful for that.
I shouted out loudly that God doesn't exist, but there was always fear and anxiety in my mind. I thought, "Is it true that God doesn't exist?" This was the voice of my mind that didn't want to betray God. Power and the honor were needed only for short time on the Earth. But I lived ignoring the impact it would have for me in the spirit world.
The pain that I felt as a mute here was serious. Many times people misunderstood me and hit me because I couldn't express myself. I was always lonely, too. How good it would have been were the power and the honor I enjoyed on the Earth effective here, too!
Friends of the Communist Party! Heaven punished me for betraying God. God did not give the curse and the punishment. One goes the way one must by oneself. I don't think I can make you understand the true situation here. I'd like to give my last wish to you members of the Communist Party. Remember nothing but this. God exists. He exists as the Parent of humankind. I'd like to ask of you a favor from the spirit world. The spirit world certainly exists. What you must especially remember is to be guided by Reverend Moon on the Earth.
Members of the Communist Party! You can live only if you abandon atheistic materialism with all haste. That belief system makes not only the body die, but also the spirit. If you don't abandon it, you will suffer in a miserable realm of spirit world. As Reverend Moon is the Messiah, the True Parents and the teacher of humankind sent to save Communist countries in this age, please follow Him immediately. He is very old now. I ask you to do this from Heaven. The one who commits sin will be punished. God is the Parent of humankind, and humankind is His children and brothers and sisters to each other. Communism will perish, because it is not the truth. Zhou En Lai, April 21, 2002.
"Communism leads humankind in the wrong direction."
Thanks be to God for forgiving the one who committed sin. Thank you Reverend Moon for working hard to save those in Hell and the Communist bloc. I participated here earnestly longing for the members of the Communist Party to make a new start.
When I came here from the Earth, scores of angels guided me. I felt as if they were leading me. Being led by them, I really felt that my power was of no use. They disappeared, depositing me in this place without a single word.
There was nobody here and nothing but a swampy ditch. I wondered where I was. I looked around, but I couldn't find anyone. There was nothing but the swamp. I couldn't leave. It was a fearful place and the swamp seemed to be ready to swallow me if I moved the slightest bit. I was hungry and it was cold at times and hot at other times. Sometimes the darkness turned into a storm. There was the sound of unlimited loneliness and anxiety in my mind. If a man commits a sin, he will be punished.
Where was it? It was the place the spirits live. I wandered in this pain, loneliness and anxiety for many days. Then one day there appeared my Messiah. He was the one Jesus sent to retrieve me. Following his invitation, I came to listen to a very precious lecture. It was on Unification Thought and the Divine Principle. I was beside myself. The lectures told me that Reverend Moon is the Messiah of humankind and that God is the Parent of humankind, and that he is working so hard to save Communist countries. It shocked me and made my heart sorely ache.
I lived a very harsh life here, staying away from God in a place that has nothing to do with Him, not attending Him. I understand now the effects of love, respect, faith and sincerity. And I think I know why all the religions have become one as brothers and sisters.
Friends in the Communist Party! The word that followed me was one that made God's heart bleed. I now know that I was a terrible sinner. Reverend Moon is the one who brought to light Unification Thought and the Divine Principle, and he is the father of humankind named as True Parent by God. Follow him and be guided by him. Communism has misled humankind. God exists as the Parent of humankind. We all became rebels against God. The spirits are destined to live here in the spirit world. There is no way for Communists to live, but by following Reverend Moon's guidance. This is my earnest wish and appeal. Now that I have been released from the dank swamp, I will attend God and live earnestly. Deng Xiao Ping, April 21, 2002.
"How can a man live without following the way of Heaven?"
God certainly exists. I haven't seen Him directly, yet, but I came here and I know He exists and that there is a place where the spirits live. I saw how Stalin lived and I realized that if a man lives a wrongful life on the Earth, he will be punished. That is the way of Heaven. I learned the Divine Principle from Mohammad first, and then participated in this seminar. I can speak; I even have a mouth.
Friends of the Communist Party! I'm in the spirit world. You must realize that you have lived in the wrong way until now. God truly exists. It is difficult to escape existence in Hell after having lived according to the Communist way of thinking. God is the only way you can live. This is my last wish.
Reverend Moon, who brought to light the Divine Principle, is the one God sent to save Communist countries, and he is True Parents of humankind. If you receive his guidance, you can know the truth about life in the spirit world. Please be guided by him. I beg this of you. I pray for God. I pray so that God can forgive the wrongdoing of my past and that He can save the Communist countries. I'd like to thank Reverend Moon. Malenkov, April 21, 2002.
"Well manage a new life centering on Godism."
After pounding a nail into God's heart, I stood here in spite of building the Berlin Wall. Friends of Communism! Communist countries will perish. You must renew your way of thinking by seeing the lives of the Russian and Chinese Communist leaders here. How could these things be worked out except by God's great power?
Friends! Power, honor and material things have less value than garbage here. They are totally useless. You must remember this. God exists. God is the Parent of humankind. And the spirit world exists. If you live rightly, you will live in a good place here, but if you do not, you will be punished. Do the Communist leaders live in good places? Or do they live in Hell as their punishment? That is up to you. But please remember to receive the guidance of Reverend Moon on the Earth. He is the Messiah for Communist countries. You will live if you follow him, but absolutely perish if you don't. He brought the four great saints and major religions into oneness centering on the Divine Principle. I will manage a new life here centering on Godism. Honecker, April 21, 2002.
"Godism is the only thought suitable for humankind's world of eternal peace."
I'm repenting thoroughly for having lived wrongly, depending upon my individual power and denying God. Even though we can't see God here, nobody denies Him. I am the same. I realized anew that God is the Parent of humankind through Divine Principle. Even before I studied it, I could know God's existence and felt suffering in my mind for quite a while. I will live attending God as my parents. I will live attending and believing Reverend Moon, True Parents on Earth. My last word is that Communism will perish and that the only way for it to live on is to change it into Godism. Godism is the only thought that can lead to eternal peace. J. Kadar, April 22, 2002.
"There is hope only if you receive True Parents' thought."
My ignorance, thinking that I could live forever on the basis of my Earthly power and honor, led to me being punished here in this place. I, a man, must seek out the feed of animals here. I have not enough time. Communist friends! God exists. The Communist parties are perishing. Change your ways. Reverend Moon on the Earth is True Parents and He teaches Unification Thought and the Divine Principle in order to save Communist countries. You can find the method to solve all the problems of Communism by his guidance. Please believe him and be guided by him. You will perish miserably if you remain as you are. Remember this. Rakosi, April 22, 2002.
"Communism is wrong."
Most of you Communists know that materialism and the Communist worldview are wrong. You lived like gods with your power and your organizations, denying the spirit and God. But if you have a spirit, then there must be a spirit world, and there must certainly be God, who manages this world.
Because this is a good chance to liberate the Communist bloc, I participated here without a trace of shame. Unification Thought and the Divine Principle are the great truths. We recognized that we lived wrongly on the Earth. I will repent for my wrong past in front of God and realize that God is the Parent of humankind. True Parents on the Earth are trying to liberate the Communist countries. Communism is a misguided, error-filled philosophy. Godism is rising as the central thought of humankind. Humankind must live as brothers and sisters attending God. Reverend Moon, True Parents, thank you very much. Gottwald, April 22, 2002.
"Communism is a twisted view of the universe and of humankind."
Communism will perish. It must disappear from the Earth. In spite of God's holy presence, it denies His existence. It ruined man, turning him into a merely material existence. God is not only for Christians but also for all people. Communism is a twisted view of the universe and of humankind. A golden opportunity has come to liberate Communism. Communism must be engrafted with Reverend Moon's Unification Thought and Divine Principle. I realized this by learning Unification Thought and Divine Principle. God sent Reverend Moon to change Communism into Godism. We must not miss this chance. The chance will appear only once. I tell you this message after studying the reality of the spirit world. Think long and hard, remembering this point. Novotny, April 22, 2002.
"I clearly experienced the way of Heaven."
If you throw your eyes, mouth, nose and other sense organs into a compost heap, the smell that comes as they go bad is worse than that of fish. Why did I live like this? It is useless to repent for it now, but I'd like to make people realize that Communism is wrong by showing the reality of the shape I'm in here. As my punishment, I live in a place of thieves. There is no place where I can sit. There is nothing that is mine. I sit down and get up and soon see a man sitting where I was sitting. I lie down and get up, then a man sits there and shouts that it is his place. He calls me a thief and tells me to go away. How can I express this? I long for a place where I can peacefully sit. I always have to keep standing up. The blood vessels in my legs are about to burst. You will be punished if you live as I did; that is why I reveal my situation clearly. I want to tell you that there is a world after death and that God certainly exists. We can't see Him, but He does exist. So if you commit sin, you will be punished. God doesn't give the punishment. I came here of my own will, as a season on the Earth arrives of its own nature. It is like the magnetic needle on a compass. Why else wouldn't I think of going to a better place?
Dictatorial power is useless here. Power and having a state apparatus have less value than trash. There is no use for them. And God exists. He is the Parent of humankind. I punished myself. I was punishing myself thoroughly. Communism certainly will perish. Dictatorship will perish. They must disappear as soon as possible. It is being proven as a fact on Earth.
Members of the Communist parties! Leaders of the Communist parties! Please uproot the wrong ideas of Communism as soon as possible. And this is my last favor. The only way for Communists to survive is to follow Reverend Moon's guidance. He is the Messiah sent by God to save the Communist countries. You can live only if you grasp him. I will absolutely follow God. I realized clearly that it is the way of Heaven. I will begin anew with Godism. Ceaucescu, April 23, 2002.
"The Unification Principle is the hope and torchlight for all humanity."
I, Ho Chi-Minh, lived in a very wrong way when I was on Earth. I struggled for decades to bring about national liberation, but because I was unable to find an ideology that was correct, I ended up creating one of the poorest countries on Earth. I do not want to spend even a moment in this place thinking about my life on Earth. I am truly grateful that I was called to attend this seminar in spite of everything. Through the Unification Principle education I received, I have come to understand a new view of life and worldview. Now I want to cut myself off from all my past without hesitation, and live in attendance to God as my Parent. The Unification Principle is the hope and torchlight for all humanity. The Unification Principle clearly reveals the errors of Communism.
President Sun Myung Moon, True Parents! Please save us brothers who are wandering about from place to place because we have no suitable dwelling-place. In this seminar, I have come to know God and to deeply understand humanity's life after death. Please guide the Communist leaders on Earth so that they, too, may lead correct lives centering on Godism. Ho Chi-Minh, April 24, 2002.
"You, too, must change to a worldview and view of human life that is centered on Godism."
During my life on Earth, I, Pol Pot, treated human life as if it were merely material existence, in accordance with the Communist view of life. Therefore, I indiscriminately executed those who opposed the ideology of Party members. For this reason, in my existence here I cannot be treated as a human being. I cannot escape the consequence of the sin of having slaughtered such a large number of God's childrenÁ| Communist leaders on Earth! It gives me much shame to say this, but in this place I am living with a pony. I have been allotted very little time, so I cannot explain much about my situation here, only that I am constrained such that whenever the pony jumps, I must jump with it.
I tell you that through the Unification Principle I have come to a definite realization about life after death and the existence of God. It is the final chance for us Communists to survive. It provides Communist Party members with one last chance to repent for having denied God. All Communist Party members here can receive the opportunity for new life by attending the Unification Principle seminar. I acknowledge the existence of God, and clearly reveal to you my situation in the afterlife. My message to you on Earth is that you, too, must change to a worldview and view of human life that is centered on Godism. Only when you do this will the Communist Party members who are now in Hell in the spirit world be liberated. I have one final sincere appeal. It is that Communist Party members understand that Reverend Moon's way is the only way for you to follow from now on. He is the True Parent of humankind, and you must follow his teachings. This is the only way that Communist countries can survive. People on Earth, please bear this in mind. Pol Pot, April 24, 2002.
"If you study the Unification Principle and Unification Thought, you will discover a new guiding ideology for your countries."
I, Ulbricht, lived proudly when I was on Earth as one who believed there is no God. I replaced Nazism with Communism as the guiding ideology of the state. From my vantage point here in the spirit world, however, I came to recognize that the demise of Communism was inevitable. God definitely exists, and He is the Parent of all humanity. At this moment, my soul conveys the real situation of the spirit world to people on Earth. No one should doubt that there is a world after death. Having heard the Unification Principle, I cannot find the words to express how sorry and ashamed I feel before God. I have the appearance of a sinner who does not dare to lift his head.
Communist leaders! God is the Parent of humankind; therefore He forgives us. Reverend Moon is working very hard in order to liberate Communists. He received a revelation from God, and has proposed a new future for humanity. You leaders of countries on Earth that live by Communist ideology must accept the leadership of Reverend Moon. If you thoroughly study the Unification Principle and Unification Thought, you will discover a new guiding ideology for your countries. God definitely exists, and there definitely is a world after death. I make this ardent appeal to the leaders of Communist countries on Earth. Only Godism can show us the way to live. Walter Ulbricht, April 24, 2002.
"I thoroughly repent for my life as a revolutionary on Earth, because it was based on a wrong ideology."
I, Che Guevara, acknowledge the existence of God, and experience that there is a world of the soul. I cannot help but point out that Marxist philosophy contains many errors. I declare to all Heaven and Earth that God and human beings are in a relationship of parent and child. I thoroughly repent for my life on Earth as a revolutionary, because it was based on a wrong ideology. I firmly pledge that I will become a child of God. You on Earth must clearly know that Reverend Moon, who is on Earth, is working day and night for the true peace of humankind and the liberation of Communist countries. I am convinced that he is the True Parent of humankind. Che Guevara, April 25, 2002.
"The guiding ideology of your world is not Communism, but Godism."
I, Anastas Mikoyan, was a sinner among sinners and an enemy of God, because I confronted God as an enemy. Yet God freed me from the swamp where I was bound tightly with an iron chain. Truly, God is the Parent of humankind.
Communist Party members! God clearly exists. Mikoyan declares from the spirit world that God exists and that there is a world in which you will be punished for your sins. Communist Party members must accept Reverend Moon's philosophy of peace and actively study Unification Thought. Always bear in mind that the guiding ideology of your world is not Communism, but Godism. You must change your paradigm as quickly as possible. Reverend Moon is the True Parent of humankind sent by God, he is the Messiah for all humanity, and he is working hard to liberate Communist countries. You must actively support him and follow him. I hope you will not turn away from this fervent appeal, which I send you from the world of the soul. Anastas Mikoyan, April 25, 2002.
"The time has come for humanity to live in one bond of brotherhood and sisterhood based on Godism."
Communist Party members! God exists. God exists as the harmonized union of femininity and masculinity, and when He appears to us He appears in a masculine manner. I, Luxemburg, have completely understood this through studying the Unification Principle and Unification Thought. I now understand with certainty that God has always existed as the Parent of all humankind.
While on Earth, I dedicated my life to the actualization of a biased ideology. The revolution I pursued during my life was not so much a Communist revolution as it was a revolution for the liberation of human beings. Here in the spirit world, however, I have clearly understood that the ideology to bring true human liberation is the Unification Principle. In the Unification Principle I have found a new vision that humanity can strive for. The Messiah of humanity, the True Parent, has become manifest on Earth, and he is working arduously to cut off Communism and other erroneous ideologies. This person is none other than Reverend Sun Myung Moon. He is the savior who gives new leadership to humanity with a philosophy of peace that is centered on God. I will now attend God and dedicate my heart and soul to following the teachings of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. God is the Parent of humanity. I will live my life shouting out that the time has come for humanity to live in one bond of brotherhood and sisterhood based on Godism. Rosa Luxemburg, April 25, 2002.
"Receive his teachings about what is the wrong way of living and what is the true way of living!"
Someone who doesn't know about God should remain quiet. While I was on Earth, I, Kautsky, didn't know about God with any certainty, but still I went ahead and insisted on atheism. Here in this place, through my education in the Unification Principle, I have come to understand that God is the Parent of humankind. Now I realize that the acts I committed on Earth were unforgivably unfilial towards my Heavenly Parent. In spite of that I have been called to this place, and for this I am grateful beyond words.
Communist nations and Party members! You are now following a path that is in serious error. Material and power seemed so much more real when I lived in a physical body. I, Kautsky, confess here in the spirit world: A world after death definitely exists for human beings. Moreover, I clearly convey to you the fact that God exists in reality, and He is the Parent of humanity. You who are of the Communist countries must receive guidance from Reverend Sun Myung Moon with regard to the true way of living. This teacher is the True Parent sent by God, and he is the Messiah who aims through his leadership to liberate Communist countries, present a correct view of life, and bring about lasting world peace on Earth.
Party members of Communist countries! Grab hold of this teacher and don't let go. The lives of human beings on Earth bear fruit in this eternal place. You must receive his teachings about what is the wrong way of living and what is a true way of living. Party members, please do not forget this point. Karl J. Kautsky, April 25, 2002.
"I will bring about a true human revolution based on Godism."
God clearly exists. Gorky is now in the spirit world. Communist Party members! I have discovered amazing things here. When I was on Earth, I exposed the contradictions of capitalism and praised socialist society, but now I want to expose the many levels of contradiction in Earthly society and give definite praise to life in the spirit world. You Communist Party members on Earth must change your way of thinking. The standard of right and wrong must be established based upon the existence of the spirit world. Those who live their lives wrongly on Earth cannot find forgiveness here, no matter how remorseful they may be.
During my Earthly life, I was interested in literature that would encourage socialist revolution in order to overthrow capitalist society and bring about true human life and a society of equality. In this place, though, I have come to realize that these goals cannot be achieved on the basis of Communist theory. One's power in Earthly life has less value here than a piece of toilet paper. Here in the spirit world, the most precious thing is to live one's life with God at the center. God is the Parent of humanity; God and human beings are in the relationship of parent and children.
Communist Party members! A new teaching called Godism has appeared that will enable you to understand just how wrong your atheistic lives have been. You must change your way of living as quickly as possible centering on Godism. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on Earth, revealed this incredible truth. As the True Parent of humankind, Reverend Moon is making all possible efforts to liberate Communist Party members. I hereby affirm that I will bring about a true human revolution based on Godism. Maxim Gorky, April 25, 2002.
"Communist Party members must receive the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon."
Thank you for this opportunity, in which a person who has nothing to say may open his mouth and speak correct words for the first time since he was born. God does exist. I, Kozo Uno, am definitely conveying this message from the afterlife. Communist Party members! God and we humans are in a relationship of parent and child. God is our Parent, and we are His children. I am a great sinner, but I have participated in this seminar so that I may receive forgiveness here in the spirit world and so that I may speak correct words. I confess to you my sincere heart.
Marxist philosophy is a theory that has led to the commission of great crimes before God. God is the Father of humanity. The Unification Principle is a truth revealed by Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is correcting Communist thought on Earth and is leading Communists in the direction of Godism, a philosophy of peace. Unification Principle is humanity's eternal sacred text. Therefore, Communist Party members must receive the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. The path followed by Communist Party members until now was a mistaken path. I earnestly ask you to turn back. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the True Parent whom God has sent to humanity. This is the message of Kozo Uno, who lives in the spirit world. Kozo Uno, April 27, 2002.
"Godism is the only path for us to follow."
I really lived my life terribly! Now I earnestly beseech the members of the Communist Party. This place, the world of the soul, really exists. I, Kozai, was brought to this place to hear lectures on the Unification Principle. I regret that I cannot explain in detail in the short time I am allotted. We Communist Party members did not know God. We were so ignorant of Him! From the beginning, God has been the Parent of us human beings. We have always been His children. Communist Party members, your socialist ideas are wrong. Now, you must acknowledge the philosophical errors of socialism and follow the teachings of the Unification Principle that was revealed on Earth by Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Also, you must find out who he is. Our lives are not nebulous paths, but are profoundly connected to God. Please bear in mind that Godism is the only path for us follow. Yoshishige Kozai, April 27, 2002.
"How can you treat God's precious children as mere material beings?"
I, Takiji Kobayashi, herby confess that the soul lives. Human beings are composed of a soul and a physical body, and the soul is constructed to live for eternity in this place. God created all creation, beginning with plants and animals, for the sake of human beings. Human beings have been endowed with the greatest intelligence, and are God's highest creation. God created human beings in a relationship of parent and child.
Communist Party members! How can you treat God's precious children as mere material beings? You must recognize that you have committed a serious error. Let's turn back quickly! It is not the way, not the truth. Your philosophical starting point is wrong. Unification Principle and Unification Thought are roadmaps for humanity and textbooks of life. The one who revealed the Unification Principle is on Earth. He is Reverend Sun Myung Moon. You must study who he is and believe in him absolutely. Takiji Kobayashi is living here in the world of the soul. If you cannot believe this, you will be destroyed. I tell you definitely, there is no truth more certain than the Unification Principle. Takiji Kobayashi, April 27, 2002.
"God exists as the Father of humankind."
There exists in the spirit world a place where souls live for eternity. Here, there is no need for power, fame or riches. Communist Party members, you should know that the most fearful among all Earthly philosophies are those that treat the human being as merely a material existence. This idea leads to the greatest crimes before God. God clearly exists. Those who committed sin on Earth are punished for eternity. In this place, even great power cannot save a criminal. No matter how much riches and fame a person may have enjoyed on Earth, these are of no use in solving problems here.
Party members! Do you say God doesn't exist? He clearly does exist. God exists as the Father of humankind. Without exception, we are all the children of God. Party members! Our sins are unforgivable, but there is just one way for us to receive forgiveness, and that is to receive the teaching of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on Earth. Do this, and when you come here you will be able to live in realms where people dwell together with God. Do not forget this point. If we study the teachings of Reverend Sun Myung Moon and receive his guidance, we will not be destroyed. If you find you are not on the right path, it is best to turn back. I tell you this after coming to deep understandings here, so please keep it in mind. Itsurou Sakisaka, April 27, 2002.
"The philosophy of you Party members is an incorrect philosophy and a philosophy of destruction."
I should not have published those erroneous theories, or even begun to develop them. God exists as the Parent of human beings. I, Hajime Kawakami, have heard the Unification Principle. It teaches that it is intended for the human body to return to the Earth but for the soul to live for eternity in the spirit world in attendance to God as our Parent. Realizing this, I really don't know what to do with myself. I have no idea. What am I to do about this sin?
Party members! Now I, Kawakami, am in great agony. I am surrounded by inexpressible agony. The philosophy of you Party members is an incorrect philosophy and a philosophy of destruction. While on Earth, I did not look at anything apart from power, but in this place power has so little value it cannot even be placed in a garbage dump. You Party members are now going the wrong way. Receive the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on Earth. That is the true path. I beseech you. Hajime Kawakami, April 27, 2002.
"What are you Party members going to do about the life of your souls?"
While I was on Earth, my arrogance and power were too entrenched to allow me to think deeply about God and humanity. Communist Party members, this is the world after death. The human soul was intended to attend God here and live eternally, but we Communist Party members are unable to do so. We definitely lived our lives in error. God is the Parent of humanity, and our condition causes Him great sorrow. Human beings are all His children, but we did not know it. How can we receive redemption for this incredible sin? We must receive the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on Earth. Reverend Moon uncovered the Unification Principle by God's revelation. The Unification Principle passes judgment on the path that Party members are going. What you must bear in mind clearly is that the world after death exists only for human beings, and that if you sin you will certainly be punished there. That is the law of Heaven.
Party members! You are going the way of great sin. What are you going to do about the life of your souls? You will be able to make this decision once you have received the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. I beseech you and convey to you the distressed heart of Shinzo Koizumi. Shinzo Koizumi, April 27, 2002.
"I hope that Party members. will quickly change their direction."
I acknowledge that God exists. I, Yamazaki, did not know God, who is the Parent of humanity, and I did not know that all people are God's children. I thoroughly apologize for my erroneous way of thinking, and I pledge that I will completely change my direction to that of Godism. Communist Party members, you must change your thinking, which holds that there is no soul. The world of the soul definitely exists. I hope that Party members will read these words and quickly change their direction. If you live on Earth according to the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, then when you come here you will be able to go to much better places than where we dwell now. I sincerely ask you to do this. Hitoshi Yamakawa, April 27, 2002.
"What hurts me most is our unfilial behavior as children who failed to attend God as our Parent."
Oh God! We were wrong. We were very wrong. I, Yuriko, thought that You were only a god worshipped by Christianity and had nothing to do with us. I have committed a great error. I now thoroughly understand about the world of the soul and the principle concerning the two-part structure of human beings. What hurts me most is our unfilial behavior as children who failed to attend God as our Parent, even though God and human beings are in a parent-child relationship, and our failure to regard other people as God's children. I thoroughly apologize for these points. I totally believe that Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who teaches the Unification Principle, is the True Parent of humankind and the great world teacher who will liberate the Communist countries. Yuriko Miyamoto, April 27, 2002.
"I will dedicate everything I have to the universalization of Godism."
Coming here, I realize for the first time that even though human beings can see, hear, and feel the blessings of nature, we have been truly ignorant with regard to God. I am now experiencing a pain that I cannot put into words. It makes my heart ache to find out now that human beings are God's children. Still, now I want to accept this incredible great truth, and help the Communist Party members and Communist countries on Earth understand these facts deeply. Also, I will attend Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the True Parent of humankind who has been manifested on Earth, and dedicate everything I have to the universalization of Godism. I will not go back to the erroneous path of life. I will cut myself off from my error-filled past and begin a new life. I will do my best to introduce Godism to those here that are ignorant about God. I earnestly request that members of the Party in China study the thought of the True Parents as quickly as possible. Chen Boda, April 27, 2002.
We seven thoroughly repent and regret that we provided the initial impetus for the creation of a thought that has obstructed human cultural development, and adopt the following resolution:
First: We believe with absolute certainty that God exists. Second: We firmly believe that God is the Parent of humankind. Third: We absolutely believe that human beings are not material existences, but were created as God's precious children. Fourth: We believe with certainty that just as there is a corporeal world, so also there is a world after death, an incorporeal world, in which the soul lives eternally. Fifth: We believe with certainty that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the True Parent of humankind and the Messiah.
We seven thinkers hereby declare this resolution, whereby we firmly pledge to attend God as our vertical True Parent and Reverend Sun Myung Moon as our horizontal True Parent and dedicate ourselves to bringing about a world of peace for humanity centering on Godism. April 27, 2002.
"Communists are following the wrong path. If you continue on this way, you will all become extinct."
I confess that God clearly exists. We humans were created as precious personalities in the position of God's children. We are all brothers and sisters receiving God's love. When Communist Party members and Communist countries come to know Unification Principle and Unification Thought, they will all spin round and round and lose their minds. Even though we all claim to be one brother and sisterhood, we have oppressed, kicked, struck, fought with and killed each other because of our selfish lust for power and fame. What are we to do?
Reverend Sun Myung Moon has loved his enemies, and Jesus prayed on the cross that those who crucified him might be blessed. Communist Party members and people of Communist countries, how have we lived in fact? Let's reflect on ourselves. I, Kamenev, know that I must love my enemies, but how can I do it? The Unification Principle is an incredible truth that recreates human beings. I am hearing this precious Principle, but I still cannot forgive my enemies.
Party members, the path we now follow was a path of destruction from the beginning. God's desire is to live happily with His children eternally in this place, the spirit world. But human beings on Earth have no idea that they have a Parent, so they fight and struggle against each other, and kill each other. Here we go through a period during which we suffer punishment for the wrong ways in which we lived in the past. That is our life in Hell. After paying for our sins, we will be able to live in a parent-child relationship with God. How can I possibly explain everything about the situation here? If it is not the right path, and not the truth, then you must turn back without a second thought. Communists are following the wrong path. If you continue on this way, you will all become extinct. Because God, as the Parent, loves His children eternally, He sent Reverend Sun Myung Moon to teach Communist countries how their philosophies are wrong. So you must receive his detailed guidance and carefully study the Unification Principle and Unification Thought.
Communist Party members must be contrite and acknowledge that their opinions on the dignity of human beings, the existence of God and the future world are utterly wrong. The soul definitely has a life in this place. You must correct all that you did wrong while you are still on Earth. Before you come here, to your eternal place in the world of the soul, you must know God correctly. Before you come here, you must prepare yourselves centering on Godism and practice it. It is the law of Heaven that you must receive punishment for your sins.
Party members! Remember this point well. I have briefly communicated to you the suffering and pains I experience here, and the situation here, so remember it well. Lev Kamenev, April 28, 2002.
"Walk the path of true persons."
We Communist Party members pounded on each other, clawed at each other, spied on each other, and were focused only on power. As a result, in this world we live as animals.
Party members and people of Communist countries! We said, "There is no soul. There is no world after death. There is no God. Where is God?" We lived as crazy people who sought only power. Yet the world after death exists, and viewed from the standpoint of its clear order and discipline, we lived our lives wrongly. I cannot possibly adequately express the extreme sadness I feel now. At this moment, we are not able to live with human beings. Instead, we live in fear of being captured by a wild beast and dragged into its lair. It is natural that anyone who strays outside the law of Heaven will suffer punishment. There are no excuses here. I came to this seminar, despite my shame, because it gives me the opportunity to live again.
Party members! People of Communist countries! We were ignorant and lived our lives in error. God exists. He exists as our Parent, and we are His children. Now from the spirit world, I, Kerensky, am sending you these words with a heart of concern. So please correct your erroneous path and receive the guidance of Reverend Sun Myung Moon on Earth. He is our True Parent sent by God, so please fully receive his guidance and walk the path of true persons. If you think incorrectly about God, you can only go the way of death and destruction. Please remember this point.
I now believe in God, and have realized the standard of absolute value. I will cut myself off completely from my past and live a new life. Aleksandr Kerensky, April 28, 2002.
"No one can escape the law of Heaven."
Hearing the Unification Principle has made me acknowledge God's real existence even more than before. I was not able to acknowledge the existence of God and the world after death during my life on Earth, but I have recognized and experienced them here. It has shattered much of the ideological framework that I believed in during my life on Earth. Communist thought had not a few contradictions within itself from the beginning. The Unification Principle demolishes Communist thought unsparingly. Because its starting point was wrong, its content could not but become distorted over time. Communist Party members! I, Kosygin, live here with only feelings of disappointment and failure. We Party members have lived the wrong way until now. We are treading the wrong path.
I dare to shout this out: "Communism will be destroyed." The reason is simple: God has existed all this time as the Parent of humanity, and the world after death exists. Yet the path we have taken until now makes us enemies of God. We have been unfilial in the worst way towards our Heavenly Father. Right now, I wish I could find a rat hole and hide there. Yet God has been working from the position of our Parent in order to save us. Therefore, with a heart of thorough repentance I send this message to the people on Earth. There is definitely a law of Heaven decreeing that those who sin must receive punishment here. No one can escape the law of Heaven.
I sincerely request to Party members that they attend Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is on Earth, and receive his teaching about what is wrong with Communist thought. He holds the key to the salvation of Party members. I sincerely ask you to believe him, obey him, and follow the correct path. God as the True Parent of humankind has sent Reverend Sun Myung Moon. The world after death definitely exists, so for the sake of the life of your souls be careful not to transgress the law of Heaven. Alexsei Kosygin, April 28, 2002.
"I want to cut myself off. from my past life that was in violation of the law of Heaven, and live the correct way henceforth."
Have you ever hated someone so much that even killing him would not be enough to satisfy your desire for revenge? I, Kirov, met such an enemy here. It would not have satisfied me to just kill him with a gun. I wanted to rip the flesh from his body piece by piece, then stomp on him and watch his entrails burst out of his body - that is how much I hated this enemy whom I met here. Yet what pains me even more than this hatred is the feeling of meaninglessness that comes from the knowledge that Communist thought is a lie. Even more than the hatred that I feel toward that enemy, I am pained by the thought that I lived all my life wrongly as a result of my belief in Communism. The agony I feel over this is unbearable. It dominates all other feelings.
My purpose in coming to this seminar is to become a new person. During my time in this world, I have been dwelling inside a fiery kiln. Countless people run here and there trying to escape the heat. They spend lifetimes like this. I confess everything honestly. I want to cut myself off from the wrong way of living, my past life that was in violation of the law of Heaven, and live in the correct way henceforth.
God definitely exists. The afterlife exists. The Unification Principle lecturers here serve by sacrificing everything for us. They are genuinely warm and humble. When we came here to the spirit world, those of us identified as Communist Party members were separated into various refugee camps. We were so suddenly transported from our dwellings to the seminar place, that it is difficult for me to describe how the others are dressed and how they look. Each one does his best not to let on how he has been living, although it is easy to guess from their facial appearances. I have made a new determination - to be born again centering on Godism.
Party members, comrades! You must live correctly centering on the new thought. You must prepare thoroughly while you are on Earth, so that you do not have to live as we do when you come here. Also, I have a final request. You must receive the teachings of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the True Parent of humankind, so that you can correctly understand the essential value of human life and live accordingly. I hope that you will firmly believe that God is the Parent of us human beings. Sergei Kirov, April 28, 2002.
"There is a place where your soul will spend eternity."
I, Zinoviev, am a sinner among sinners. The Unification Principle teaches the fundamentals of life. On learning it, I now feel such regret and despair over my past life. It hurts me in every cell of my body and even to the morrow of my bones. Who can understand my pain? I will confess everything here and begin anew. Even though life on Earth passes away after a short time, I lived believing that it would last forever. Here in the afterworld, military might, power, and political authority are of no use whatever, and I cannot understand how I could have lived like such a merciless crazy man. My dwelling-place here is the result of my incorrect life on Earth. I am in a dark stable, and there are cobwebs all around. Why do I live here? It is so that no one will see me.
One day, though, people came shouting and broadcasting my name everywhere. They had a list of names, and they were going from house to house and place-to-place to find the people on the list. It was impossible for me to hide any longer. I thought I would be taken to a place of execution. But this is amazing. This is a place where they call sinners and deal with them kindly, even though they lived their lives in a wrong way. And they teach us the right way to live. God exists. He exists as our Parent. You, too, are all God's children. I never knew that there was such a wonderful place as this in the world after death.
The lecturers earnestly asked us to help people on Earth understand these facts. Also, God sent Reverend Sun Myung Moon, and he is working day and night in order to guide Communists to the correct way of living centering on the Unification Principle. Communist Party members, you must receive his guidance and throw away all of your erroneous philosophies, ideologies, and opinions. The path of Communism leads to destruction. You must understand the heart of Zinoviev, who conveys this message to you from the afterlife. Think deeply and carefully about the life of your soul. Know that there is a place where your soul will spend eternity. Gregory Zinoviev, April 28, 2002.
"Why couldn't we have treated people as human beings?"
How can I apologize for my wrong life in a way that will let my heart find peace? Why couldn't I recognize that God exists while I was on Earth? Innumerable people on Earth have the same appearance. Regardless of their crime, the many people whom we purged were human just like us. Why couldn't we have treated them as human beings? After all, all people are God's children. I don't think anyone can look at me as I now stand here and not turn away. I am completely naked. People follow me wherever I go and tear off whatever clothes I may be wearing, so it is impossible for me to wear anything.
In this education center they treat me as a human being, so I am able to cover myself. The shame of my appearance is terrible, beyond description. I don't know how it is that I could suddenly be here, wearing clothes and listening to the Unification Principle. Here, too, there are those who shout that I should be stripped of my clothing, but I am saved by the love of the lecturers and their ability to maintain order.
Party members! I have received Heaven's punishment. God exists, and the soul is created to live forever. God and human beings were intended to form a relationship of parent and child and live together forever. But, Party members! Please save me. When you deeply understand Godism and the existence of the world after death, both you and I will be saved. There is one thing that you must keep in mind if you wish to live correctly. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the True Parent of humankind, is on Earth. He is the one who, by the revelation of God, has proclaimed the Unification Principle. I ask you to study the Unification Principle in detail and receive his teaching. Then you will discover the path that you must go. Please think about this point deeply. Nikolay Bukharin, April 29, 2002.
"Communism. must completely be uprooted from the Earth."
I, Plekhanov, lived my life wrongly. My life was a great mistake. Marxism was wrong in its origin. I didn't know this on Earth, but after coming to this place I have been thoroughly regretting and lamenting. I long for human company, but I have a miserable appearance here that makes me fearful of letting others see me. I have had to live in the lowest realm of existence. I am truly grateful that now my sin and punishment have been covered with forgiveness and love, so that I could be permitted this new and hopeful opportunity.
The Party members, philosophers and politicians of Communist countries are all living wrongly. They must discard completely their politics and ideas. Even the final remnants must be washed away. Clearly, the spirit world exists, in which the soul lives eternally. Communism and its thought, which trampled at will on God's beloved children, must be completed uprooted from the Earth. I, Plekhanov, am watching that from here. It is a law of Heaven that if you live wrongly you must receive punishment. No one executes you or administers the punishment. Here in the spirit world, everyone goes their destined way on their own.
Party members! God exists as the Parent of humankind. I have made my determination to thoroughly repent for my past and to live with total dedication centering on Godism. Furthermore, there is one person from whom you should receive correct guidance regarding your lives while you are on Earth. God sent Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the True Parent, in order to guide you on the right path. I strongly encourage you to follow his teachings. His new thought will lead humankind to the correct future. Those who do not believe it will be forced to wander in a place of fearful punishment here. Georgy Plekhanov, April 29, 2002.
"Communism will definitely fall."
I, Molotov, lived a wrong life. Such a voice of lamentation and regret did not leave from my heart. I was living here in such suffering and pain. However, God has granted me a chance to be liberated from such misery. Since God is the Parent of all humanity, such a wretched sinner as I was given a chance to be forgiven. A large placard was posted: "Anyone who has lived a wrong life, come forward to reveal his or her own sins and crimes and repent." I hesitated repeatedly, but I finally decided to come here in order to expose my own wrongdoings of the past. I now come to realize that God truly exists and He is the Parent of humankind.
During my Earthly life, I abused my power and authority. I am now covered with blood from constantly being stoned. No matter how much I try to avoid stones and rocks, they are constantly being thrown upon me. Despite living in such an environment, my awareness of being a "sinner" is more painful than the baptism of rocks and stones. Although God exists surely, during my Earthly life, I treated Him merely like a stone or a pebble . How could I ever avoid the consequence? The Unification Principle systematically explained the purpose and direction of human life. Even before listening to the Principle, I realized the existence of God and life after death. Thus, my pain is greater, even to an intolerable extent.
Dear Communist comrades, Communism will most definitely fall. It is so because it is not truth. Listen to me. The reality is that Communist thinkers and leaders are being punished after coming to the spirit world. Communist parties and members will have to uproot their wrong ideas. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is living on the Earth. Unless you inherit His ideology, you will never live a true life. I hope that you will keep in mind that God is alive and that the spirit world truly exists. Sincerely, Vyacheslav Molotov on April 29, 2002.
"One should change his view of life, centered on Godism."
Dear Communist party members, thinkers and politicians, I, Beria, appeal to you, shouting: God exists! So does the life after death. God is the Parent of humankind, and we are His children. God is not only the Being of Christian faith, but He is also the Parent of all humanity. Therefore, dear Communists, I can say that I did not live my life well. Communism is not the right path for humankind to walk. Therefore, Communists must return to God as soon as possible. While living on Earth, I did not believe that the spirit world existed, but after coming here, I am indemnifying the sins and crimes I committed on Earth. I did not want to reveal my identity to anyone; but I was somehow brought here as a criminal.
However, this workshop for the Unification Principle is not to punish sinners or criminals. It is a place to educate people so that they can repent for their wrongdoings committed in the past and the present; and to understand that God is the Parent of humankind; and to realize that all human beings should live as brothers and sisters. I was deeply moved by the fact that such a place exists. Here, we do not need power or honor. No one controls others, but everyone is educated peacefully and harmoniously. Here, no matter how sinful one may be, every one is treated with respect and dignity. This is such a mysterious and touching place. The Unification Principle educates people to attend God as the Parent and live with Reverend Sun Myung Moon as the True Parent of humankind. Thus Earthly people should also change their view of life centered on Godism.
Dear Communist comrades, we lived a wrongful life and are still continuing to live such a life. We must thoroughly repent and be educated by True Parents. I beg this of you from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Lavrenti Beria on April 29, 2002.
"The future of the Japanese people will be secured only by following the will of True Parents."
I, Sen Katayama, betrayed God. When looking at the creation in which we live, the five senses and the physiological functions of human beings, one certainly cannot deny the existence of God. Nevertheless, my ambition for honor and power darkened my spirit. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, I am grateful for your discovery of the Principle.
I, Sen Katayama, according to the will of God, will abandon my belief in communism without any reservation. Hereafter, undoubtedly, I will live my life in the belief that everything belongs to God; and I will believe the teachings of Reverend Moon, our True Father.
Dear Communist party members, Communism is leading us in the wrong direction. All Japanese people, not to mention Japanese Communists, will have to follow the will and direction of Reverend Sun Myung Moon in order to secure their future. I earnestly request that you accept the idea of peace with True Parents. Sincerely, Sen Katayama, April 29, 2002.
"I will live my life, introducing God and True Parents to the ignorant."
I, Kyuichi Tokuda , thought that God is the Supreme Being of faith only to Christians. However, it was such a serious mistake. Because of that wrong belief, I came to deny the eternal life after death. Here at the present time, my life is filled with remorse, lamentation and grief. So far, I have been living a life, thoroughly experiencing the heart of a blind person. However, God's love liberated me. Dear God, I thank you. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, I thank you.
From now on, I will be thoroughly armed with Godism, and will introduce God and True Parents to those ignorant of the Unification Principle in the spirit world. I thank You for your forgiveness. I hope that all Earthly people will be guided and be given direction by the True Parent, Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Sincerely, Tokuda Kyuichi, April 29, 2002.
"I came to realize that I lived a wrongful life upon studying the Unification Principle."
When living on the Earth, I, Sorge, did not know that the spirit world existed. I never imagined that something was wrong with Communism. Yet now I know that God clearly exists as the Parent of humankind. Then, who are we? We, humans, are His children.
Dear Communist party members, Communism is wrong. You must realize that you are going the wrong way. You should keep in mind that in the life after death, you will have to be punished for your wrongdoings. After listening to the Unification Principle, I came to the realization that I did not live well on Earth. I deeply regret it. Everyday, I cannot stand the pain in my heart.
The Unification Principle must surely be a revelation from God. Reverend Sun Myung Moon discovered such truth and conveyed it to humankind. The Japanese people must quickly follow his teachings and direction as soon as possible. Bear this in mind. Life after death truly exists, and if you do not follow his teachings, you will not be free from grief, frustration and fear. Sincerely, Richard Sorge, April 29, 2002.
"What could be greater pain than not recognizing the existence of True Parents? "
To me, Hotumi Ozaki, the most painful thing is that Japan failed to recognize the Korean people. That is more painful than denying the existence of God and the life after death, and not understanding that we are God's children. Korea is a chosen nation and the birthplace of True Parents. In the universe, the greatest pain and sorrow would be not recognizing the existence of True Parents. Despite the fact that Korea is the nation where the Messiah of humankind was born, why did Japan persecute that nation so desperately? That is the greatest torment to me.
Actually, I am a sinner who denied God and the life after death. However, the Unification Principle of True Parents liberated me. The greatest thing that happened to me is that I accepted Godism and started a new life, cleansing my past life.
Japan must follow the directions of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Look at the history of humankind. Who is the leader who brought the meaning and direction of life to the light so clearly? I, Ozaki, am frustrated. Currently, Japan is unable to see the future due to her national pride. Japan must be able to recognize the true leader. And Japanese people must change their faith in various spirits to that of Godism. This is the earnest wish of Ozaki, who denied the existence of spirit world after death. The teaching of the Unification Principle and the Reverend Sun Myung Moon will shine as the splendid hope for humankind. Let Japan believe in this. The master of the life after death is God. Sincerely, Hotumi Ozaki April 29, 2002.
"I will live a new life centered on Godism."
The world is so vast, with a huge population. So are ideas and thoughts, but why did I live the kind of life I led in such a short life span? After coming here, I, Inejiro, cannot help lamenting over it. God is my own Parent and life after death clearly exists, but I lived my life like a fool. After coming here to the spirit world, I have no place to reside. People who lived a wrongful life do not have a place to live here. Nor is there a room for any forgiveness. On Earth, with force, power and money, our social status can be determined; but that does not work here at all.
Dear God, please forgive me. I repent for my wrongful life on Earth from the bottom of my heart. God truly exists as our Parent. Even the life after death certainly exists. God does not punish those who lived an evil life. They punish themselves.
According to the Unification Principle, the relationship between God and human beings is a Parent-child relationship. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who revealed the Unification Principle, True Parents, I am immensely grateful. Hereafter, I will live a brand new life, attending God as my Parent, only centered on Godism. Communist party members, you are going the wrong way. I hope and wish that you will turn around your way as quickly as possible. Sincerely, Inejiro Asanuma , April 29, 2002.
"I clearly realized the greatness of God and human beings."
I, Yoshio Shiga, have finally come to a realization about the truth. I am truly grateful to the lecturers of the Unification Principle, who awakened me with the truth. On the other hand, I am deeply apologetic. Through the Unification Principle, I have finally come to acknowledge the existence of God. I also came to realize what the spirit world is like.
This is the place where our spirit self can live with God for eternity. I did not realize that when our Earthly lives were centered on the temptation of Earthly thought, it would cause that much pain to God. Heavenly Father, I am so sorry. I also apologize for not having regarded, with respect and dignity, human beings ,who are in the image of God. I now have come to know clearly the greatness of God and human beings. I will follow the teachings of this new truth.
To my Communist comrades! You are going the wrong way. There can be no comparison between Godism and Communism. Communism is full of conflicts, distorting history, human beings and the phenomena of the universe. Communism is destined to fade away from the Earth. Therefore, the more quickly you abandon Communism, the better it is for you. Afterward, you need to study deeply the Godism brought by True Parents. That is the path that leads Communist party members to freedom.
My beloved Communist party comrades! Please be prepared with your future life that you will be living in the spirit world. Life after death surely exists. Sincerely, Yoshio Shiga , April 29, 2002.
"Find God. God is the Parent of humankind."
The fact that God is the Parent of humankind was extremely shocking to me, Sanzo Nosaka . During my physical life on Earth, I was not interested in the existence of God and life after death. I was so intoxicated by the ideology of reforming the reality of the present life before my eyes that I never paid attention to my future life. That is very regretful.
Beloved Communist party members! We are now in a place where we can come to learn the new truth and rededicate ourselves to start a brand new life. Earthly people, please pay attention to my message: you should find God. Every single human being is a child of God. Study the Unification Principle. The Unification Principle, a revelation from God, is the truth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon discovered through numerous struggles with Satan, as he searched for answers to the fundamental questions of the true meaning and purpose of the physical life and the spiritual life.
In order for you to guide your spirit in the right direction, you need to follow Reverend Moon's teachings. He is the True Parent of humankind sent by God. Japan, especially, must accept and follow the will of Reverend Sun Myung Moon for her future development. Otherwise, she cannot indemnify the sins and crimes committed by the people of Japan. I hope that you keep this in your mind. Sincerely, Sanzo Nosaka , April 30, 2002.
"Humankind can prosper and develop only by Godism."
After coming here to the spirit world, I found out that life after death truly exists. This is the place where we are punished for the wrong doings committed during our Earthly life. Yet, I have now been given a chance to be forgiven for my sins and crimes. Before, I was suffering from pain more lethal than swords, guns or poisons. However, I will clear up all of my wrong understanding and concepts from the past, and will replace them with the Unification Principle. And I will boldly expose the real identity of myself to Communists on Earth.
My beloved comrades, since coming to the spirit world, I have been imprisoned in a cave with fear Heaven might punish me. But from now on, I will live like a human being centered on the Unification Principle. Even before my realizing it, God had been my Parent, and humans had been living both an Earthly life in the flesh, which is temporary, and a spiritual life in the spirit body, which is eternal. What is important is that once we do not live a right life on Earth, we shall be punished for it here in the spirit world.
My beloved comrades, life after death exists. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the one who revealed the historically hidden secrets of the physical world and spirit world. Now, the only way for you as my comrades to restore your spiritual life is to accept Reverend Moon as the True Parents of humankind and receive his teachings and guidance.
Satomi is now informing Japan: We, Japanese people, are committing wrong doings to Koreans, and are misunderstanding Reverend Moon. He is the Messiah of humankind sent by God. If you are not certain, please study the Unification Principle carefully. And Japanese people themselves should make a decision as to what to do. Humankind can be prosperous only by Godism. The prosperity of humankind goes side by side and hand in hand with Godism as if they are synonyms.
In the world after death, I came to realize many things. Japan needs the guidance of True Parents. That is the way for us Japanese people to live. If they do that, God's protection will be always with them. I wish and pray that Japan and Communists will always keep this in mind. Sincerely, Satomi Hakamada on April 30, 2002.
"God is not the Parent of Christians alone, but of all humankind."
I, Ritsu Ito, found out here in the spirit world that God exists. Through the Unification Principle, I came to know that God exists as the unified Being, comprised of the dual characteristics of internal character and external form. I learned this systematically. God is not merely a conceptual Being, nor is He only for Christians. He is the Parent of all humankind, and we, humans, are His children.
Communist members and people of Japan! When watching you from here, you are so ignorant of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Reverend Moon is the one who came to Earth to realize the world of eternal peace for humankind. His constant teaching is that all humans throughout the world are children of God and therefore siblings to each other. Right here, I saw it, heard it, and realized it. Humankind is too ignorant in recognizing Reverend Moon, who came as the True Father.
Ignorant people crucified Jesus. They made such a critical mistake, being ignorant of him as the leader of humanity and the Messiah of that time sent by God.
My beloved Japanese people! Politicians in particular, please listen to me clearly: Jesus, who was crucified on the cross, was the Messiah and Savior of humankind at that time. The Savior at this time is the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. And the Creator of the Universe, God, is our Parent. Therefore, we are brothers and sisters. Japan must attend the Messiah as soon as possible and be directed by Him. If a similar incident of Jesus' being crucified is repeated, Japan will perish. Please deeply reflect upon this. I am sending this message from the sprit world. Sincerely, Ritsu Ito on April 30, 2002.
"An unfilial son of God finally has come now."
The Unification Principle opened a way to life for us Communist members. The reason why the Unification Principle could provide such detailed information on the existence of God and the reality of life after death is because God truly exists. That is certainly a concept separated from the distorted reality of today. The intellectuals of humanity cannot help but pay attention to the Unification Principle. I, Lassalle, would like to be totally open about everything that I know.
The fact that a criminal admits his own crimes means that he feels repentance for his acts, which can occur only when he is able to see a certain hope and vision out of doing it. I do not want to mention my Earthly life at this point. I just want to be honest about my life here. The place where I ended up living to avoid people is a deserted, barren place that is so dark that no one can recognize anyone, whether it is day or night. Yet, what is more intolerable, is the terrible odor that is indescribable. However, God reached out a loving hand to even such a place as this. Someone called out the name of Lassalle, a sinner who could not be saved even after tens of thousands of years, and invited him to a Unification Principle seminar. First, more than anything, I was grateful to get out of a place with such an unendurable odor. The Unification Principle lecturers were yelling and shouting with a tearful voice: "Please meet God. God is your Parent and will forgive your sins and heal your wounds." Past concepts and thoughts about my belief were totally melted away by the depth of the Unification Principle and the passion and zeal of the lecturers. Although God was invisible, I could feel myself being embraced by Him.
Lectures continued. My body became wet with tears and sweat from head to toe. I desperately cried out with tears in repentance, moved by the voice within me: "Heavenly Father, I was wrong. I came to you only now. Your unfilial son appeared only now. I did wrong. Please forgive me." Then, I heard a voice from somewhere: "You are my son. Do not go back to the place of suffering any more." I finally felt myself being liberated.
I am now brought back to life. My beloved comrades, God is alive. He is the Being of love, forgiving us as the Parent of humankind. Thus far, we did not live a right life, being possessed by wrong concepts and a false ideology. From now on, centered on Godism, I will embark upon a new life with all of my heart and soul. And wherever I go, I will live, shouting: "Heavenly Father, Mansei."
I want you to study the Unification Principle revealed by Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Communism is not a truth.
My dear comrades, stop and turn around. Attend Reverend Moon and receive his guidance. He is the one who was sent by God as the Savior of all humankind to liberate Communists. Follow his teachings and prepare your life on Earth before coming here to the spirit world. Sincerely, Lassalle on April 30, 2002.
"I will now heal the wounds of God's heart."
There are a variety of ideas and thoughts in this world, but I do not know how I ended up confronting God by becoming a Communist thinker and member. I am immensely regretful after coming here. When the Unification Principle lecturers gave me lectures on the existence of God and the incorporeal substantial world, great pain burst from my heart. Suddenly, tears flowed out unceasingly, and I heard a voice so loud that I felt that my nose and ears were about to explode: "So far, God has been feeling a stabbing pain in His heart. Please melt away His wounds." I looked around and saw a twinkling light gradually fading in the air. Then, I felt the short words, "God's wounds, God's wounds," resounding in struggles within my heart.
My dear members of the Communist party, I henceforth declare that I will clean up everything in the past and attend God only. I will trample upon the past I so wrongfully lived and will serve God alone. I will do my very best to heal God's wounds. I firmly believe that Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who brought the Principle to the light, is the True Parent or Father of all humanity. I feel deeply hurt whenever thinking of the meaning of a True Parent. We have been ignorant of God, the Parent of humanity. You, members of the party, please look at the reality of our situation here in the spirit world and make your own judgment. I just want to cry to my appeasement. God! God! Hereafter, I will live well. Please forgive all of my wrongdoings in the past. Sincerely, Edward Bernstein on April 30, 2002.
"The Unification Principle is the alternative of Communism."
I deeply thank you, God, for opening a way to salvation to a sinner who lived an evil life.
Dear Communist comrades, politicians, philosophers, thinkers, and Communist followers, your Communist countries are not taking the right direction. God is alive, and life after death exists. God is our Parent and we are His children. Communism is not partially incorrect, but entirely wrong.
Please deeply think of your future after seeing our reality and situation here. And I hope and wish that you may take the right course in your life. You need to understand that the life in the spirit world is the continuation of our Earthly life. Especially, you must keep in mind that God is the Parent of humankind. To me, the Unification Principle seems to be an alternative for Communist thoughts and theories. The Unification Principle is the incredible truth revealed by God through the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. You should thoroughly study the Principle and follow the teachings of Reverend Moon. The only way for us to live is by following his teachings. I am sending you this message from here in the spirit world. Please be wise and make the right decision in order to be prepared to come to the spirit world. If you do not live a right life, you will be punished for it. That is the Heavenly law. Sincerely, Moses Hess on April 30, 2002.
"There is no pain more severe than that of denying God."
Through the Unification Principle, I came to clearly understand that God is the Parent of humankind, and we are His children. Marxism made a serious error from the very beginning. There is no greater sin than that of denying God. I, Rudolf Hilferding have surely continued to exist here in the spirit world. However, from now on, I will be living for God, thoroughly armed with Godism. Reverend Sun Myung Moon has made an incredible contribution to the development of human history. You would not know the standard of judging the significance and value of True Parents.
Now, you need to wake up from Marxism. You need to clearly understand who Reverend Moon is. The portion of your life that you lived wrongfully is your responsibility, in which no one can interfere. Sincerely, Rudolf Hilferding on May 1, 2002.
"The Unification Principle is a true textbook for the revolution of human beings."
Indeed, the theories of communism are wrong. God clearly exists and so does the life after death. Humans are not merely physical but also spiritual beings as the children of God.
After listening to the lectures on the Unification Principle, I, Brecht, came to realize many things that I did not know before. The Unification Principle is the new truth revealed by Reverend Sun Myung Moon. That is the revelation of revelations of God, which enable us to set our life straight and penetrate all phenomena of the universe. It is a true textbook for the revolution of human beings. I will follow all teachings of the Principle as the truth of God. Communists and thinkers must make a correct judgment for their lives. They need to be prepared for the next life in the spirit world. I wish and hope that you will make a right decision so that you will not regret later. Sincerely, Bertolt Brecht on May 1, 2002.
Life on Earth is nothing but a moment in comparison to the eternal life in the spirit world. Nevertheless, we have been attached to the Earthly life, while ignoring the eternal life after death. I do not know why I lived such a life. When thinking of my life here, I am deeply regretful and painful.
Dear Communist comrades! God existed and still exists. He will exist forever. God and spirit world are inseparable. Communism is greatly distorted. Now, before humankind, the Unification Principle has newly appeared. The presentation of our life and reflections would be helpful in deciding your lifestyle as the follower of Communism. You need to receive the education of Reverend Sun Myung Moon and obey the teachings of the Unification Principle. If you carefully read the Unification Principle, you will clearly come to know how to live your life. I will clear up the wrong ideas and concepts of my past and start anew. I hope that you too will judge all situations well, paying attention to the life of spirits. God existed as the Parent of humanity and so will He. Now, what are you going to do? Sincerely, Franz Mehring on May 1, 2002.
"Rev. Sun Myung Moon is fulfilling our dreams."
I, Bruno Bauer, seem to have had a wrong view of life and the world during my Earthly life. Such views impacted many juniors in the wrong way. I confess that I am an indescribable sinner before God. Communism is wrong. It is going the wrong way. Through the Unification Principle, I came to realize that God is our Parent and Communism and its theory is extremely wrong. Devilish elements are contained in Communism. The relationship between God and humans is that of parent and child. That is why God has been always looking for His children as the Parent of love.
Dear intellectuals on Earth, please carefully read the Unification Principle and study the contributions made by Reverend Sun Myung Moon. You have to understand his contributions and what he is doing now. You will easily realize that he is fulfilling our dreams. Sincerely, Bruno Bauer on May 1, 2002.
"God is your Parent and Father, and you are my child."
I, Feuerbach, am shouting out to the thinkers, politicians of Communist countries, and to other atheists who do not know God. God exists indeed. He exists as the Parent of humankind. And God wanted for humans to be living in the beautiful garden He created in a Parent-child relationship. On the Earth, however, I had the wrong belief of God and human beings and thus lived a wrongful life. Before my Parent, God, I committed such a serious sin. And I am paying the price for my mistakes on Earth.
I will make a frank confession to all of you. Ever since coming to the spirit world, I have been living in the cave where thieves were gathered together. There is nothing that I own. Even the clothes I was wearing could be stolen. When I came to the spirit world, I was living like a beggar, wearing clothes made out of leaves and grass, being dragged by someone to the place I arrived. But lately, someone changed my clothes, and with his guidance, I attended a seminar where I could hear the lectures on the Unification Principle. During the lectures, I shed so many tears that they stopped coming. It is hard to describe my pained heart. I just wish that there be no trace of the human spirit. I just wanted to disappear to some place. How could I have lived such a wrongful life? How could I end up being in the situation where I could not wear my own clothes? No matter how much I cry, hitting my chest, I came to a point in which I realized that I could not change my situation.
Dear Earthly intellectuals! Please study the Unification Principle. I beg of you that you listen carefully to its lectures, while taking notes seriously. The Unification Principle is the revelation from God discovered by Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who fought Satan in numerous battles and struggles. Therefore, I wish that you live a right life, clearly knowing the truth. The Unification Principle will become a universal truth that can unite all humankind. God has now accepted me, Feuerbach, as His son. I repent for the past life that I lived, filled with wrong concepts and ideas.
I heard God's voice in the pain of pressuring my heart and my eyes swollen and blistered with too many tears that I could not even touch them: "Feuerbach, Feuerbach, God is your Parent, your Father, and you are His son." That voice was similar to the outcry of lecturers. God's light embraced me, swirling around me, and then left. That is how God appeared to me.
Dear intellectuals! I am deeply sorry before you. I seem to have carved humanism so deeply into human brains. Now, centered on this new truth, I will start a new life, overcoming any kind of ideological barriers and thoroughly attending God. I hope that on Earth, you will study the Unification Principle and be guided by Reverend Sun Myung Moon, attending him as the True Parent. The human spirit will remain forever. Hence, you should prepare your life in the spirit world during your Earthly time.
Beloved intellectuals! Let us meet each other in the spirit world, in the attendance of God. If you continue to think wrongfully and live wrongfully, you will be punished. This is one of the principles by which of all humankind is bound. Sincerely, Feuerbach on May 1, 2002.
"The justification of atheism is not different from the globalization of the Devil "
"Where is God? God does not exist. Life after death does not exist." That is the standpoint of Communism. It is not merely partially wrong, but entirely so. Communists should totally change. God undoubtedly exists. So does the life after death. Because it does, I, Ruge, am conveying a message now from the spirit world. Ruge was educated with the Unification Principle here. The Unification Principle, God's revelations, was discovered by Reverend Sun Myung Moon through numerous battles and struggles with many satans. One of his messages is that God is the Parent of humankind. As the partner of the Devil, Communism strived to rationalize its belief that God does not exist, thus making Satan the Master of the world. Communists must listen to the lectures of the Unification Principle and compare it with the ideas of Communism. I am looking forward to your wise judgment. Humans cannot be considered simply as physical beings. Humans are God's precious children. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who revealed the Unification Principle, is the True Parent. All of us should attend him and be given directions from him. Earthly people must be prepared for the next life. You should keep this in mind. Sincerely, Ruge on May 2, 2002.
"The greatness of human beings should be discovered from spirituality."
God exists, as does life after death. God and human spirits remain for eternity. In spirit world, I, Bogdanov, am alive just as Earthly people, but eternally, not temporarily. I came to realize the reality of spirit world systematically through the Unification Principle. The Principle affirmed that humans are not merely physical beings. You should understand that the theory of Marxism on human beings is wrong. I only hope that communists could uproot the theories of Communism. Unification Principle is not something ordinary in its contents and organization. It must be revelations from God. Reverend and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon are True Parents who came to the Earth to save humankind and build the world of peace, both on Earth and in Heaven. And they are toiling hard to rectify the wrongfulness of religions and thoughts that appeared throughout history. I, Bogdanov, pledge that I will start a new life centered on God, with a new view toward life, universe and value. Dear Earthly people, please take the spiritual life seriously. The greatness of human beings should be discovered from their spirituality. Sincerely, Bogdanov on May 1, 2002.
"Unification Principle is the absolute truth, transcending time and space."
I, Makarenko, came to realize the following from the education I received from the Unification Principle: First, God exists. In what manner does He exist? He exists in dual characteristics of masculinity and femininity, bringing harmony between the two. I learned from the Principle that since He appears in the position of man, He is called "Father."
Second, we human beings are not merely physical beings, but are children of God with His divine nature is within us. We are precious beings created by God as His object partners to bring joy. God is our Parent, and we are His children. Thus we are in a parent - child relationship.
Third, I came to a logical realization that life after death exists. The physical incorporeal world is the place where physical beings sustain their lives with a physical body or form and the spiritual incorporeal world is the place where spirits live for eternity. Humans, unlike other animals, were created in dual structures: spirit and physical self. Hence, the Heavenly law is that we live as the children of God, bringing Him joy.
The Unification Principle is a revelation from God delivered to recreate human beings, and is the absolute truth, beyond time and space. All throughout my life, I have never experienced such a great education. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who revealed the Unification Principle, is the True Parent. He is toiling day and night in order to bring all humanity to the original world, becoming one, centered on Godism, so that they can live in happiness for eternity.
Dear Earthly people! I am conveying this message from the spirit world, and I hope that you can keep this in mind and prepare yourself for the life in spirit world. If you do not live a good life on Earth, you will have to pay a price for it. That is the Heavenly law. Sincerely, Makarenko, on May 1, 2002.
"Here, only Godism exists for eternity."
"I, Evegenii, lived a wrong life. Indeed, I did." That is all I can say to express my regret. The Unification Principle expounded the fundamental purpose of life systematically. What was most painful to me is that during my Earthly life, I did not know God and the reality of life after death. Although spirit world clearly exists so systematically, I was completely unaware while living on Earth. I am truly a fool. I am now being punished for my wrongful life on Earth. Where and how do I live in the spirit world? It is embarrassing to say, but I will confess.
I have been living like a gypsy, here and there, so that my identity would not be revealed. I have been hiding myself from everyone. Here in the spirit world, I met Stalin. He suggested to me: "We were too ignorant of God and the life after death. As new comrades, let us live a new life centered on God." At that point, what could I say? I just tolerated it because both of us were sinners.
God is the vertical True Parent of all humanity, and Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the horizontal True Parent. This is truly an amazing truth. He is teaching humankind how to live with God in the original world of creation.
Dear Communist thinkers and politicians, here in the spirit world, only Godism can remain for eternity. Communism will definitely perish due to revolutions. I earnestly request that you would keep my message in mind. You must follow the guidance and direction of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. Sincerely, Evegenii Preobrazhenskii on May 2, 2002.
"I am sure that God is the Parent of humankind."
Lukacs believes in the existence of God and life after death. I absolutely believe that God is the Parent of humankind, and humans are children of God. And I believe that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is True Parent of humankind. Sincerely, Lukacs on May 2, 2002.
"I pledge to start a new life centered on Godism."
God exists. So does life after death. God is the Parent of humankind and humankind are His children. I firmly believe that God and human beings are in the relationship of parent and child. I believe that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the True Parent who came to the Earth to realize the world of peace for all of humanity. I, Henri Lufebre , affirm and believe all of this, and pledge to start a new life centered on Godism. Sincerely, Henri Lufebre on May 2, 2002.
"Heavenly Law is being applied here."
God exists as the Parent of humankind. God is not only the Parent of Christians but also of all humankind. We are the children of God. Life after death truly exists. Yet what is most fearful is that there exists Heavenly laws by which sinners will be punished for their wrongdoings. No one would command to go here and there. However, the Heavenly law is that we must face the consequences. I, Wladayslaw Gomulka , am looking at this straight. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the True Parent and Messiah sent by God to humanity. I firmly believe in this and I pledge that I will live in accordance with Godism. Sincerely, Wladayslaw Gomulka on May 2, 2002.
*P.S.: Due to short time allowed to me, I cannot convey a detailed message. It is too painful for me.
"Godism will lead me to a new life."
I am sorry to God. I am sure that God is my Father and Parent. I am also sure that life after death absolutely exists. Whether we lived well or badly, depending upon the merit of our Earthly life, we will find our place to stay accordingly. That is amazing. I am full of pain for not having known the Heavenly laws. I am truly grateful to Reverend Sun Myung Moon for revealing the Unification Principle and guiding humankind in the right direction. Now, I know about the coming of True Parents and its significance. Hereafter, I will attend True Parents and follow them. Godism will lead me to a new life. Sincerely, Lange on May 2, 2002.
"All things can be realized through God's love."
I, Jiang Ching, had the experience of meeting God here in the Heavenly world. When I enjoyed material abundance on the Earth, I had no interest other than in temporal things. I was not concerned for the world after the death. But I came to realize that political and economic status and power and money mean nothing here. I always felt lonely, and got to wander around in this Heavenly world. I wondered, "What on Earth is this world?" Almost nothing was as I wanted. "Why should I be afflicted with loneliness and alienation? Why should I be here?"
One day, I was squatting down in a sunny spot to avoid the cold. I felt a ray of sun approaching and surrounding me. And all of a sudden it disappeared. I began to cry without knowing why. And then a voice was ringing, briefly but full of dignity, love and generosity, "This is the place where spirits live forever. Do you know God? Who is God? Look for God! Where is He?"
I felt unconsciously it was God's voice though nobody told me. At that moment strangely enough my loneliness and suffering vanished, but soon came down on me again. But God didn't forsake me but guided me to listen to Unification Thought here. I was deeply moved by it. I could experience God's warm love there. Now I could understand Unification Thought and passed through my loneliness and affliction through experiencing God. In spite of myself, I decided to start a new life centering on Godism.
Now I am sure that Reverend Moon is True Parent of humankind. "God! Thank you very much! I'm very sorry that I meet you late here in the Heavenly world, but from now on I will also bear witness to God. Behold! Humankind, I met God in this afterlife. You should know human spirits live forever. I hope that you on the Earth, especially the Communists, prepare yourself well for life in the Heavenly world. The power and position you are now enjoying on the Earth are of no use here. Without God's love, nothing can be realized here. I sincerely wish that you prepare well on the Earth for this world. Jiang Ching, May 3, 2002.
"I wish I had known Unification Thought on the Earth."
Not a few people are unaware that God exists and that He is the Creator and Parent of humankind, and believe that all things can be realized with worldly power. Now I'm in the spirit world. I had never thought of the afterlife, but I was had anxiety and fear of death. I had not dreamed at all that there exists another world after death. I couldn't see any thing other than political power.
I repent much for the folly of my life on the Earth. No power or arms are of help in this Heavenly world. I was very tenacious in clinging to the Earthly life. I lived only for the physical comforts and had no interest in the spiritual life. Unification Thought elucidated logically and systematically the relationship between God and man, and between the visible and the invisible world. It shows what the direction and purpose of human life is. I wish I had known of this Unification Thought on the Earth. My life on the Earth was one of slavery to the body, and so I deserve of the scourge of God.
After I received Unification Thought education here, I realized deeply that there cannot be any meaning without a God-centered life. I want to live here forever with Godism. I never want to return to where I was, full of gloom, horror, and ugly animals. Now I have come to realize God is our Father and that we are the children of God.
Reverend Moon, our permanent True Parent, has devoted himself to extricating Communists from their sins and crimes, and so I sincerely pray for the ability to follow his teaching. I beg of Communist states and leaders from my deep heart to follow his guidance. This is the place we are obliged to pay dearly for the sins we committed on the Earth. That payment is not made by others, but by oneself. It is a natural course. I sincerely want you, Communists, to live based upon Reverend Moon's teachings and come here with success. Zhu De, May 3, 2002.
"I'll do my best to bear witness to the fact that we are the children of God."
If I had definitely known on the Earth that there exists the afterlife and God, my life here would be completely different. There was nothing I could not do with the power I had. But it is of no value here. I was in the mire filled with aphids. I would reveal all my sins and crimes if they could be redeemed.
The Unification Principle lecturers are very humble. Their life and attitude to me is beyond all comparison with mine on the Earth. Their voices fell on my ear like God's thunderous shout. I felt terrible and fearful. I was really sorry that when I was on the Earth I had not realized the clear meaning and direction of life that the Unification Principle shows to me.
"Please forgive me. I swear that I will live a good life from now on. Now I know for certain that God is the Parents of humankind. I experienced the reality of the order of things in the afterlife. Oh, God! God! I was in the wrong. From this day onward I will try my utmost to witness that God does exist and that we are the children of God. I earnestly ask you Communists on the Earth to follow the teachings of Unification Thought and to not deviate from the right path. God sent Reverend Moon to save you, and I eagerly request that you serve him as True Parents and tread the path of righteousness. You should not continue the life you are enjoying now. Truly God and the afterlife exist. Lin Biao, May 3, 2002.
"I swear firmly that I will not bring shame on my mother county."
All people are envious that Korea is the country to which True Parents and the Messiah came. But I was so ashamed that I couldn't raise my head in front of them. But now I am going to give up all things and start a new life. I tried to live a life more valuable than that of the average people, but I have come to know that the direction of my life was wrong from the start. I always thought I could solve any problem on my own, without God's help. I looked upon the people who pray for God's help and believe in the afterlife as unrealistic and full of illusions.
However I found a new recognition of God and life through the Unification Principle education. It was very wonderful. We Koreans cannot but to be surprised and really proud that God sent the Messiah of humankind to Korea, and that he proclaimed Unification Principle to guide the world and to realize the peaceful world. I never thought that I would stand in this sorrowful and disgraceful position.
Reverend Moon! You are the patriot of Korea. And I truly thank God for sending you to Korea as the Parents of humankind in this world. From now on I firmly swear that I will not bring shame again upon the motherland to which the Messiah came. I will wait upon God as my Parent and follow True Parents' direction. Please forgive me of my wrongdoing on the Earth! I offer prayers for peace, health and long life! Zai-Bong Kim, May 3, 2002.
"I will start a new life centered-on-Godism."
Reverend Moon, please forgive me of my ignorance on the Earth. Now I will thoroughly educate the spirits in this Heavenly world that God is the Parents of humankind, about the reality of the invisible substantial world and the law of redemption for sinners. I sincerely listened to Unification Thought. I can imagine the bloody struggle and suffering Reverend Moon passed through to receive God's revelation.
Reverend Moon, though I face many difficulties I will teach the Communists what is wrong with Communism on the basis of Unification Thought. I overlooked the value of the spiritual life because I had an excessive passion for an abundant economic life for Koreans. As a result, I didn't look for God, and never thought of the afterlife. Now the leaders of socialist system in the North Korea absolutely need a reformation of consciousness centering on a new ideology. Whenever I think of Reverend Moon's hard work confronting modern people to solve world problems although he is already over 80, I always feel sorry, anxious and heartbroken. I am really regretful that I should realize this truth here at this late hour.
Reverend Moon, True Parents! You have spared no pains to save humankind. Thank you very much for your suffering for me, for Korea, and for the world. Now I thoroughly and openly repent of my past imprudent deeds. I am determined to start a new life centering on Godism. Heavenly Father! Please forgive me! Nam Woon Back, May 3, 2002.
*P.S.: He cried a lot because he was so sorrowful and repentant over his wrong life on the Earth.
"I swear firmly that I will live according to the teaching of Unification Principle."
I, Dubcek Alexandr, truly apologize to God for my wrong life on the Earth. I stand in the presence of True Parents in order to announce my decision to throw away the false ideology of Communism and serve God by Godism. God is the Parent of humankind. I am convinced that the relationship between God and man is that of Parents and children and the Invisible Substantial World describes the afterlife of humankind. Reverend Moon is the True Parent and Savior of humankind. Now I swear firmly that I will live according the teaching of Unification Principle. Dubcek Alexandr, May 3, 2002.
"Please pardon my disloyalty on the Earth!"
I am completely ashamed! Please God! Forgive me! I committed myself to Earthly power and honor. I disregarded God's children's personality and never bore in mind a concern for the afterlife in spirit world. The Unification Principle clearly illuminates the identity of God and man. It gives me the logical and systematic explanation about the afterlife, etc. When I reflect on my past, my heart is broken. I did live a wrong life. But from now on I will do my mission as God's child. There are many spirits who don't know what God is. I want to teach them Godism. And so I hope to set a condition for the redemptive of my sinful Earthly life. Reverend Moon, I would like to take your direct guidance. Please pardon my disloyalty on the Earth. I am thoroughly repentant of past wrong deeds, and I will start a new life. Husak Gustav, May 3, 2002.
"This is the place where spirit men live according the Heavenly way."
How can a person who was intoxicated in arrogance, power and reputation, and was indifferent to the afterlife, wish for comfort and peace here? Only after I lost my body and came here did I find out that spirit world exists. I perceived after learning the Unification Principle that God is the Creator and Parent of human being and that man is composed of a dual structure, and so the physical man lives on the Earth temporarily, and the spirit man live perpetually in the Heavenly world. The fact that I lived Earthly life without knowing this truth makes me frustrated and stunned.
Now there is no repeating the Earthly life. I am the result and fruit of the life on the Earth here. Life works in the same way farming does. In the spring, the farmer sows the seed, in the summer he cultivates and grows, and in the fall he reaps the harvest of his or her hard work and has an abundant life in the winter. But I didn't reap the good harvest from my life. The eternal life of the spirit man depends on the way one lives on the Earth. The law of redemption is the natural and Heavenly way. No one here forces our movements or activities, but we go and do according to the Heavenly Way (Law) spontaneously, without any orders.
It is indeed too late to come to know that God is my Parent, but I will redeem my sin at any cost. I deeply repent for my life on the Earth. Oh, God! I lived a wrong and bad life. Now I made up my mind to teach the new truth to the spirit men who are ignorant of God in the spirit world. I will do my utmost to disseminate the Unification Principle. I will follow True Parents, Reverend Moon's guidance and teaching. I am penitent over the past and beg absolution from True Parents, and I will make a new start. Pen De-Huai, May 4, 2002.
"What shall I do to atone for my sin of dealing with God's children as material beings?"
I really didn't know! I was really ignorant. I didn't know that the spirit world exists in this way. I became too miserable here, owing to my ignorance of the nature of the afterlife. I cannot help bemoaning my lot here. Unification Principle is truly wonderful. Unification Principle criticizes the theory of Communism, but doesn't exact obedience to that truth. We are deeply moved by its teaching.
Unification Principle logically and systematically explains the existence of God and various aspects of Heavenly world. Not a few people here experienced God. We didn't know the stark fact that man lives a temporary life on the Earth and lives eternally here in the spirit world. I cannot express enough my joy mixed with regret and deep gratitude when we found out that God is our Parent. I felt acutely that fact. According to Communism, the human species is accidental, a material being, not God's children with personality. Communism perverts the truth. My heart is very much broken that I should have been deceived and lived my life according to that deception.
The Unification Principle is truly grand and great. The lecturers of Unification Thought said that Reverend Moon, True Parents, disclosed it through God's revelation. It is said that they are commanded by Reverend Moon to teach Unification Thought in order to emancipate the Communist politicians, theorists, and followers. God! I did wrong. Now I will do right! I will not excuse my sin but will pay its dear price. I will start a new life and educate the people who are bringing up the rear. I ardently pray that my repentance can serve as a good lesson to the Communists on the Earth and they thoroughly prepare themselves for the afterlife. Please take it to your heart that God is the Parent of humankind. I. Ehrenburg, May 4, 2002.
"God is in the center of the realization of the human idea."
I believed in God on the Earth and that sinners will be punished. Reverend Moon is the Savior and Messiah of humankind, whom God dispatched to the Earth. Communist politicians, theorists and followers, you are on the wrong path. The ideal of Communism is nothing but a completely distorted illusion. I am sending you who are on the Earth the new message. Please overthrow the Communist illusion as soon as possible. The ideal of humankind cannot be fulfilled in the way the Communists think. I implore you to bear this in mind and give up all things related to Communism. God is in the center of the realization of human ideal. Any ideal excluding God is a fantasy. I am in the world where spirit men live forever. Please study Unification Thought in detail and receive Reverend Moon's direction. If you continue to go on your way, it will at last lead to collapse. Please hold on to the eternal truth, Unification Thought. I earnestly ask you. Keep it in mind that only the Unification Principle is the permanent hope to human beings. F. M. Dostoevski, May 4, 2002.
"I want to be a revolutionary for Godism."
God, I did wrong. Krupskaya lived a wrong life on earth. I didn't know that God exists as Parents of mankind. And I devoted myself in my life on earth as a socialist revolutionist, with no time to think about the world after death. God, from now on I want to teach the people ,who don't know God, that God is Parents of mankind. I want to be a revolutionist of Godism. Now I am in the position of a criminal who cannot stand before you honorably. But I want to be a revolutionary fighter for Godism, repenting for my previous wrongdoing. Now I am living at the place where a lot of aborted fetuses are dying. I am at the place where I cannot teach Godism. God, please forgive my situation. I will study Divine Principle steadily. Reverend Moon, True Parents, forgive me and receive me as a woman revolutionist. I am confident that I can be a wonderful lecturer. I'll teach the Divine Principle with the heart of crying and regret for the wrong life I lived and the sadness I caused. I adhered too much to the passing life on earth. I didn't know the existence of the world after death. From now on, I'll live centering on Godism. Dear comrades on earth! We took the wrong direction. Please change your direction to Godism . Godism is the only truth that rightly guides mankind. Krupskaya . May 4, 2002.
"Unification Principle gave me new and complete enlightenment and opened the door to new life."
I wanted to be set free from this situation. All men have an Earthly life with a physical body, and a Heavenly life with the spirit. However, I was simply ignorant of that truth. I never dreamed of the existence of God and the afterlife. I thought that to believe in God is to believe in the fantasy of the weak and immature. But I found out the afterlife exists and God exists as the Parent of humankind. I live now in the slough that I cannot extricate myself from on my own. Why did I come here? As I found out, this is the result of my life on the Earth. Unification Thought is the truth that clarifies the value of man, the essence of life, and the existence of God. The people who commit sin and crime necessarily pay the price. Reverend Moon is the True Parent of humankind. Now I will start a new life centering on new truth. The power that I enjoyed on Earth is meaningless here. The bitterness of repentance over my sinful life on Earth cannot be expressed properly by words. Now thank God for enlightening me and opening the way to a new life. I will surely live a righteous life. Karl Liebknecht, May 5, 2002.
"To believe in atheism is to brag of ignorance."
My features in this Heavenly world resulted from my ignorance and violent use of Earthly power. God exists clearly. I will go public with my figure in the afterlife to convince the people on Earth of the Heavenly law that if you commit sin on Earth, you are bound to be punished in the Heavenly world. Here I have stout limbs and had no suffering other than being dumb. I was not able to say what I wanted to. So I read others' minds. But when I did them improperly, they used to kick me on the leg.
But fortunately the Unification Principle saves me from that difficulty. My mouth could open in this Unification Education Center. People who are ignorant of God, alas! Listen to me, you! I repent over my life on Earth that I lived without centering on God. I knew the improper world, and lived a wrong life. From now on, after burying past repentance and deploring, I will start a new life centering on Godism. I beg you to live right lives on Earth before you come here. To do that, you should receive guidance from Reverend Moon, who discovered the Unification Principle. That is the way you can live a good life eternally. Now the Unification Principle has liberated the person who had to live dumb forever. I am resolute that my belief in Godism will be absolute. If you on Earth insist on atheism, it is as if you are proud of your ignorance. And it leads to a kind of evil. Clearly, God exists. Please know this truth and prepare yourself thoroughly for the life after the Earthly life. Imre Nagy, May 5, 2002.
"Whoever seeks after power and fame will remain an ignorant person."
I didn't perceive the existence of the afterlife when I was on Earth, but now I live here in the spirit world, and I am sending you my messages. I repent over my ignorance of spiritual knowledge. Why didn't I recognize, when I was on Earth, the dignity of man, who also has the spirit body? It starts from my single-minded pursuit of power and fame. I didn't find out until I came here. I am crippled here. The reason I lay myself bare now is to give you on Earth lessons, to repent of my sin in the public and promise to God that from now on I will live a life centering on Godism. Unification Principle explains in detail the existence of God. I came to know many new truths through the education in Unification Principle. I cried so much that my tears at the lectures soaked my suits. The lecturers gave me a new suit to change into. They gave me warm and kind treatment and said, "God is our Parent, and He forgives His children of all their sins. Shall we pluck up the courage to start again?" Now I repent with all my strength of my sinful past, and I will run to bear witness to God. And I will follow all the way Reverend Moon's, True Parents' teaching and never repeat that foolish way of life on Earth. Li Li-San, May 5, 2002.
"You should make preparation for the life in the Heavenly world when you live on Earth."
Unification Principle is really wonderful. It saved my life. "God! I am Wang Ming, a terrible sinner. I did wrong. Truly I lived an evil life." I couldn't move my limbs, but now I can do so after listening to the Unification Principle. I was deeply moved by the fact that God is always the Parent of humankind. It made me cry with heart-rending pain. How can I repay what you have given me? Unification Principle made plain the existence of God and the spiritual life and its value. I will exhaustively dispose of my faulty system of ideology I clung to in the past, and I will always cry out, "God already existed before I was, and He is now and will be forever. And He is our Parent."
Listen! All atheists and political leaders in Communist countries! Please go the righteous way when you see our lives in the Heavenly world. God is our Parent of love, and we are His children. This is an amazing truth! We have been impious to God, our Parent, due to our ignorance. We committed inexcusable sin, but He embraced us and forgave us. You should throw away the past wrongful life and convert yourself to God, and get ready for the life in the spirit world. This is my last request. You ought to believe absolutely in Reverend Moon on Earth, True Parents' thought, and follow them. If only you believe and follow him, the eternal Heavenly peace and happiness is yours. All is in peace here in the Unification Thought lecture center. Now I have a new life. Thank you God! Thank God very much! Wang Ming, May 5, 2002.
"I attended a Unification Principle Seminar by Mr. Muhammad's suggestion."
After I understood Unification Principle, I became greatly ashamed of my ignorant and sinful past. Nobody presumably wants to reveal his appearance when he is receiving punishment. In my mind I would prefer to be suffering in Hell rather than disclose my sin in public. But I want to atone for my sin by confessing in public.
Oh, God! I did wrong on Earth. I walked on the wrong path. I took part in this education not by my intention, but by that of Mr. Muhammad. Every word of Unification Principle pierced my heart. Especially the teacher, Sang Hun Lee's, lecture on Unification Thought and his witness moved us deeply. He stated that he gave up and left the position of physician to follow Reverend Moon's guidance when he listened to Unification Principle and met Reverend Moon. Why was I stupid while on Earth? Why did I never think of God, as I indulged in power on Earth? I was never ready to come to the eternal spirit world, and all of a sudden one day I came here and lived unexpectedly.
God! I appreciate your forgiveness of my sin and giving the opportunity to lead a new life. I truly did wrong. And I thank Reverend Moon for revealing this truth. I am sorry that I defamed Korea, the holy land where the Messiah of humankind came. From now on I will do my best to redeem my sin on Earth, and will never lose this chance to work for God and Reverend Moon. Chaeck Kim, May 5, 2002.
"I will not repeat the past false life now that I know the new truth."
Man is the masterpiece of God. We are the children God devoted His knowledge, heart, and will to. I didn't live on Earth as a proper man. I committed lots of sins and crimes on Earth. I didn't have mercy upon any Communist staff and laborer if they were against the ideology of the workers' Party. I paid no heed to the likes of human dignity.
After I listened to Unification Principle, I found out that my life on Earth was like that of a madman. So I am here treated as a human caterpillar. Every where I go, I have to listen to whatever they say, be kicked by whoever kicks me, and get driven out without any reason. I am just like human trash. Actually other people call me trash. And they say of me, "throw it away!"
I beg the people who suffered difficulties as a result of my persecution to pardon me. I am suffering here for my sins there. Oh, God! God! How can I redeem my sin? Though Teacher Lee continuously consoles me with love, commiseration and mercy, I don't know how to redeem my sin. Reverend Moon and I are both Koreans, but he leads the liberation of Communists in the position of the Savior and True Parents of humankind, but I am a sinner as a Communist. I am so shameful that I cannot say, "Pardon my sin." Now that I have realized the new truth, I will never repeat my past false life. I will begin a new start serving True Parents. I will do my best to unify the Korean peninsula. Doo Bong Kim, May 5, 2002.
"The life of the Communist comrades in North Korea should be changed."
Why was I so rapacious? So what if I had had only a little? Why did I seek after nothing but the highest and supreme position? I was completely ignorant of God, who created man, and I thought that all is to end when we die. I was the victim of an illusion about life. I was the slave of an ideology. I have never dreamed of the afterlife and now I am living here in spirit world. I cannot return to the Earth, and it is of no use however much I repent of the past. All things take their courses here. Nobody forced me to come here, but I came on my own two feet. I am in a hut on a hill in the endless desert. I have always wandered in the desert like a gypsy. Very rare travelers glimpse me. I have been a beggar here.
And then a hand of love sought me out. I heard a message that an opportunity of special amnesty would be given to Communist theorists, politicians and followers, if they attend the lecture on Unification Principle and follow its teaching. I couldn't make up my mind whether to go or not, but at last I decided to go and attend it. I hesitated once again whether to go into the lecture room or not, because I was wearing the attire of a beggar. But I found that there were various clothes available, and so most of the people changed into them and went into the lecture room. I followed suit. I really made a good decision. Unification Principle and Unification Thought deeply moved me, and I thought the new truth is the real truth of the highest dimension, and that all intelligentsia have to listen to it.
Most of attendants were deeply touched and shed lots of tears. We cannot help crying over God's sorrow and suffering given to save man through the providence of restoration. We cry over Reverend Moon's way on the providence to be enthroned ultimately as True Parents. We cry over his life of imprisonment in North Korea, South Korea and America. These things move us deeply to tears. I am really sorry that I know this fact only now. God! Please forgive me. Now I know I lived a wrong life. Now I, a prodigal, know about God's heart. Now I feel your heart and the history of Providence. Now that I know You, I will live as a filial son from now on.
Please Reverend Moon, True Parents, save your countrymen in North Korea! I'm determined to serve True Parents and follow your directions with my whole heart. Listen! Comrades in North Korea! Please serve Reverend Moon and follow him. Though on Earth, you don't know yet what he is. Here in the Heavenly world we all know him plainly. You should wait upon True Parents and arm yourself with Unification Principle and Unification Thought. Ex-President Il-Sung Kim is together with us. Please make of our life here a lesson for your life on Earth. Man's Creator and Parent is the very God. God existed even before I realized His existence. God is not only the God of Christianity but also the God of humankind. God truly loves my Communist comrades and then He gave us a special opportunity. You should change your life direction before it's too late. Don't forget the fact that the afterlife clearly exists. I pray that you should live the right life on Earth and then meet us here in the eternal world. Sam Ryong Kim, May 5, 2002.
"I will do my best as God's child to unify Korean peninsula."
I found out that God and the afterlife exist. God is our Parents and we are His children. The Unification Principle altogether shook me, a Communist, out of my false knowledge and beliefs. I realized that all of us are brothers and sisters with one Parent. However, we turned our backs upon each other and aimed guns at each other as though we were enemies. I desperately ran after political power. The glorious life on Earth has become nothing here. It didn't help anything here. Now I regret that I have lived a false and empty life on Earth.
Here in the Heavenly world, the murderers and the murdered are sitting together and listening to the Unification Principle in the same lecture hall. Now we have come to realize that human ignorance of God's sorrow and suffering resulted in enormous disasters in human history. How sorrowful and bitter God has been to see Hell! God! I confess my fault and sin on Earth. I would like to go to Hell again to witness to the truth that God is our Parents. I felt deeply God's sorrow and pain from His children's disloyalty to Him. God! I did wrong. Reverend Moon as True Parent, gave us the special chance to receive pardon and to liberate the Communist world, and so we will band together in oneness centering on Godism. I want you to put Unification Principle and Unification Thought thoroughly into practice on Earth, and prepare yourself for the afterlife. God! I come here now. From now on surely I will do my utmost to help unify South and North Korea. Heon Young Park, May 5, 2002.
"Unification Principle is the new Gospel to all men in the world."
What word shall I speak first? Korea is a sacred land and Koreans are a blessed people. I am a sinner who is not qualified to say anything as a member of a sacred country. As for me, my egoistic greed was the root of my sin. God! I lived wrong. I didn't know that there is God as my Parent. I hurt many people's hearts out of my avarice. I never thought that I would receive the punishment after the wrong life on Earth. I didn't know what is right and wrong, and so my life was like that of animal. In my life here, I haven't been treated as man.
But God pardoned us and opened a new way to us because He is our Parent. There is nothing I can say except to express gratitude, deep gratitude, and shame. I am resolute to tell the people on Earth that there is certainly another world in which we live forever after death. Here in the education center for Unification Principle and Thought it is a snug, comfortable and peaceful spring. The lecturers are very humble, gentle and mild. And their hearts are full of love. Here in the spirit world, I have so far roamed aimlessly filled with fear, anxiety, fretfulness and horror. It has rained heavily in the darkness. But now I am at peace and in comfort, as if in a trance. Unification Principle captivated me. It was like symphony from the sky. I can't believe that there is the place like this in the world. At the same time I could not avoid the feeling of shame and regret about the past.
God, forgive my disobedience to you in the past! Reverend Moon found Unification Principle in spite of enduring many threats to his life. It is neither Communism nor capitalism, but the new Gospel to save humankind. God! I will start a new life. I believe you will forgive the sins in my past. I will change my life to Your way and do my best to play the role of a child of God. Zoo Ha Lee, May 5, 2002.
"I will do my utmost to put the Unification Principle into practice in daily life."
What I thought was right was wrong! I lived a wrong life on Earth. Here is a world of which I never dreamed or imagined on Earth. I cannot help repenting of my past life. God's existence is plain here. God is humankind's Parent and we are His children. This fact was beyond imagination on Earth. It is a stark truth. The Unification Principle confirmed this truth. All its contents are undeniable facts.
This Heavenly world is classified into various strata, and all people go to their proper level in relation to the fruit of their Earthly life. All things are automatically decided according to their results from life on Earth. However sorrowful and regretful we are here, it cannot be helped. God leads the life directions of the spirit men as Parent. Reverend Moon, True Parents! I'm shameful. I committed enormous sins on the beautiful land to which the Messiah has come. I deeply repent of my past life. Now I will serve True Parents wholeheartedly, study Unification Principle hard, and put it into practice. Ga Yee Huh, May 5, 2002.
"Divine Principle is the greatest scripture in human history"
Reverend Sun Myung Moon, True Parents , I regret from the bottom of my heart, although I was born in the country where True Parents were born, I disgraced you. I beg your pardon. I was wrong. My futile self-conceit and arrogance led me to develop wrong thought. From now on, with pride as a Korean, I repent completely for my activities on the Earth. I'll get rid of my old way of thinking when I lived on the Earth. And I promise to start a new life centering on the new truth. Please forgive me for my faults. I firmly believe that God is the True Parents of mankind. I am confident that the soul exists after one's death. I believe strongly that Reverend Moon's Divine Principle will be the greatest scripture in human history. Please believe me as I start a new life. Gun Gang, May 7, 2002
"I participated in the Divine Principle seminar at the invitation of Muhammad."
After learning the Divine Principle, I feel ashamed. It would be better to feel pain in hell. Who in the world would want to show himself being punished for having lived a wrong life on Earth. But I confess the pain in my heart. God, forgive me. I lived a wrong life. I participated in this seminar, not by my own will, but at the invitation of Muhammad. Divine Principle moved my heart. I was especially moved by the lectures on Unification Thought by Sang Hun Lee. His life story of abandoning his practice as a doctor after learning the Divine Principle moved us greatly.
Why was man so stupid? What is power? I didn't even think about God. The afterworld surely exists, but I came to this world without any preparation. Suddenly I came to dwell in an unexpected place. God, forgive me. I thank you for giving me the chance to live a new life. I was mistaken. I apologize in my heart. I contaminated the holy land of Korea, where the messiah of mankind came. How can I atone for my sin and start a new life? I repent in my heart and beg pardon from the Savior of mankind, True Parents. I'll do my best if I can be given the opportunity to work. Chack Kim, May 5, 2002
"Since I realized the new truth, I'll never live a wrong life as before."
Humans are the masterpiece of God. God invested every power and created us as children. I didn't do what was expected of me on Earth. How can I reveal my place here? I committed a lot of sin on Earth. I didn't forgive people, officials or laborers, who were against the party platform. I almost disregarded the dignity of man.
After learning the Divine Principle, I realized that I lived a crazy life on Earth. Therefore I am treated as human trash in this spirit world. If people yell at me or throw stones, I can do nothing but hear and be hit, being chased into the dust. That's my appearance. Here people call me trash. They say, "Throw it away!"
Dear comrades, especially the ones who suffered on Earth because of me, please forgive me. I am receiving the punishment for my sin here. God, how can I atone for my sin? Mr. Sang Hun Lee consoled me constantly with a loving heart, but I don't know how to be forgiven. Reverend Moon leads the movement for the liberation of Communists in the position of the Savior of mankind and True Parents. But since I am also a Korean, I am the sinner. I feel shame. Since I realized the new truth of Godism, I will never live a wrong life as before. I'll start anew, attending True Parents. I'll do my best for the unification of South and North Korea. Doo Bong Kim, May 5, 2002.
"Comrades in North Korea, your direction of life should be turned."
Why was I so greedy? Why was I so avaricious in always wanting the highest position? I lived life without knowing God, who created mankind, thinking that everything ends at the end of Earthly life. I was utterly mistaken on Earth. As a result, I lived as a slave of a dreadful ideology. I came here unexpectedly without even thinking about the life after death. I cannot return to the Earth, and it's too late for regret. Here the rule is strict. Nobody brought me here; I came here by myself. I live here in a hut on a hill in an endless desert. I wandered the desert like a gypsy, until now. Once in a long while, a passerby looks at me, living as a beggar. That's my appearance.
Then, the hand of love reached here. I heard that a special pardon will be given to the Communist ideologists, politicians and followers. After long hesitation, I participated in the session. After arriving at the lecture room, I hesitated once again because of my beggar appearance. But there was clothing at the entrance. Most people changed their dress and entered. The contents of Divine Principle and Unification Thought are high level. Intellectuals must listen.
During the lecture, most people were moved and shed tears. Many parts of the lectures seemed to peck at my heart: God's sadness and pain lasted a long time to recover mankind; prison life of Reverend Moon in North Korea, South Korea and overseas. Now I know the truth. God, forgive me. I lived a wrong life. Now this unfilial child knows your will. Now, I know Father. From now on, I'll do my filial duty as a child.
Reverend Sun Myung Moon, True Parents, please save the people in North Korea. And I beg your pardon for the grief True Parents felt for North Korea. Now I truly want to serve True Parents and be taught.
Comrades in North Korea, please serve Reverend Moon and be guided by him. People on the Earth don't know who True Parents are, but here we know well. Please serve True Parents and arm yourself with the Divine Principle and the Unification Thought. President Kim Il Sung is here with us. Please remember our life here. God is the creator and the True Parents of mankind. God exists. God is not only the God of Christianity but the Parents of all mankind. God loves our comrades and gives us special opportunity. Your direction of life on Earth should be changed. Life after death clearly exists. I request that you earnestly live well on Earth and let's meet here in the eternal world. Sam Yong Kim. May 5, 2002
"I'll do my best for the unification of Korea in the position of a child of God."
God exists and life after death also exists. God is our Parents and we are children of God. Divine Principle shook the whole spiritual world of me, the sinner, Hun Young Park. We were essentially brothers and sisters. Nevertheless, we struggled to get power and killed each other. That kind of life was useless. We lived in vain.
Here in spirit world, the one who killed and the one who was killed look at each other and listen to the lectures on Divine Principle together. It seems as if it belongs to another age. Human ignorance about God's sadness and suffering for years caused tremendous tragedy in human history. How painful God's heart would have been looking at hell. God, I did wrong. I'll go to hell again. There, I will tell others that God is our Parents. I deeply felt the sadness and pain of parents not recognized by their own children. God, I really did wrong. Having the mission as True Parents, Reverend Moon gave us a special opportunity to liberate the Communist world. We in the spirit world will unite and serve him centering on Godism. I want you people on Earth to attend Reverend Moon, practice the teachings of Divine Principle and Unification Thought and prepare for life after death, while living on Earth. God, now comes Hun Young Park. I'll do my best for the unification of Korea in the position of God's child. Hun Young Park. May 5, 2002.
"Divine Principle is the truth that can ring an alarm bell to the life of all mankind."
What should I say first? Korea is a holy land and Korean people are blessed people. In the holy land where the messiah came, I, Joo Ha Lee, became a sinner who cannot say a word. For me, it seems that my selfish desire became the root of sin. God, I lived a wrong life. I didn't know that God exists as my Parents. And because of selfish desire, I broke many people's hearts. It didn't occur to me that if you live a wrong life, you will be punished. I didn't know the standard of wrongdoing and I lived life at an animal level.
But, as Parents, God pardoned us and opened a new way to us. I only feel deep gratitude and shame. I feel that it's necessary to let people on Earth know that life after death really exists. Here, the lectures are given in a warm and peaceful atmosphere. All lecturers are gentle, humble and full of love.
I used to live with anxiety, fretfulness and fear, running away here and there, always in rain and darkness. But, here was the place I first felt peace and ecstasy. Divine Principle captured me. It sounded like a symphony coming from high in the sky. It was wonderful. But I also felt unbearable pain.
God, I was unfilial. Reverend Moon revealed the Divine Principle. He felt his life threatened several times. The Principle is neither Communism nor capitalism. It's truth that can ring an alarm bell to the life of all mankind. God, I'll start anew. Forgive me for my previous wrong life. I'll turn to the lifestyle based on Godism and fulfill the filial duty. Joo Ha Lee. May 5, 2002.
"I'll devote myself to the practice of Divine Principle."
I had a wrong idea. I lived a wrong life. An unimaginable world really exists here. It's something to cause one to wail. God exists! God is Parents of all mankind. And we are all children of God. These facts were all beyond imagination to me. I was too terribly busy to confirm these facts. But they were true. This is the wandering and agony of Ga E Huh. Divine Principle reconfirmed these facts. These are all undeniable facts.
This spiritual world is classified into several social strata. One's dwelling place is determined according to the result of one's life on Earth. This is the life of the soul in the spirit world. It's no use to grieve. God guides the direction of children's lives as Parents. Reverend Moon, True Parents, I am really sorry. I committed tremendous crime in the land of Korea before the messiah. I deeply repent for my previous life. Now I'll devote my life to the study and practice of Divine Principle, while attending True Parents. I want people on Earth to understand my intense grief before starting anew in the spirit world serving God. Ga E Huh, May 5, 2002.
"How can I atone for the mistake of treating man, God's children, as material."
I really didn't know. I was really ignorant. The world after death exists in an orderly manner. By not knowing this, I became shabby. I became miserable. Divine Principle was really great. We deeply understand the teachings of Divine Principle.
Divine Principle explained God's existence and the various aspects of this spiritual world logically and systematically. A lot of people experienced God here. We never knew that mankind lived on Earth temporarily and lived here permanently. When I realized that God is the Parents of mankind, I had mixed feeling of sadness and deep gratitude. I feel keenly that I am also a child of God. According to the theory of Communism, man is treated like accidental material. How distorted the Communist theory is. We feel pain for acting based on that theory. Divine Principle is great. According to the lecturer here, Divine Principle is a new truth found by Reverend Moon through revelations from God. And Divine Principle is taught here to liberate Communist thinkers, politicians and followers.
God, I lived wrongly and from now on I'll live rightly. We will not make excuses for our sin, but pay the price. We will start again and educate people who lived like us. And we implore Communists on Earth to prepare for the world after death by learning lessons from us. Please keep in mind that God exists as Parents of mankind. I. Ehrenburg, May 4, 2002.
"God is at the center of the realization of the ideal of mankind. " I, Dostoevski, believed in God's existence while I was on Earth. Criminals are punished. Reverend Moon is the Saviour of the world, the messiah sent by God.
Dear Communist politicians, thinkers and followers, you are going in the wrong direction. The ideal of Communism is nothing but distorted fantasy. I send you new messages from the world after death. Abandon the Communism fantasy as soon as possible. The ideal of mankind is not fulfilled by that way. Please keep this in mind and discard everything related to Communism. God is at the center of the realization of the ideal of mankind. Any ideal excluding God is an illusion. This is the eternal world of the soul. Please study Divine Principle in detail and be guided by Reverend Moon. If you follow the same way as before, there will be only ruin. Catch the new eternal truth, Divine Principle. I ask you earnestly. Only Divine Principle is the hope of mankind. Dostoevski, May 4, 2002.
"The Unification Principle made us realize the underdevelopment of our ideology "
God is the creator and Parent of human beings. Nevertheless, I, Bela Kun, present among you here, am sincerely apologizing to God for living against this great Heavenly Law. The Unification Principle and its ideology made us realize the underdevelopment of our ideology and taught us that human beings are very precious and have significant existence. Since human beings have eternal life after death, their existence is very precious. According to Communism, a human being is merely the accidental result of the environment. If human beings live with this point of view, then, they can only live as animals do. Even now, there are more than a few of people who live like this. Now, we realized God's ideal of creation. The Unification Principle is the absolute truth , with no room for any criticism or comment. There is no content to be denied. God, we live with deep remorse for our mistaken lives that we led until now. We now deeply understand the reality of several dimensions in the Heavenly world and recognize how human spirits have to live. Reverend Moon, True Parents! Thank you for giving us the great Unification Principle. From now on, we will live our new lives practicing the Unification Principle. By doing so, we will not neglect, even a little, the stature of God's children. Bela Kun, May 7, 2002.
God exists as the Parents of human beings. There is a world after death. I, Xun Lu, am living in the Heavenly world and giving this message to you. Ideologists and politicians of Communism! You are living wrong lives. You are not gaining anything out of your underdeveloped lives based on ideology, politics, and economics. I am truly sorry for not knowing that on the Earth. Here, I was taught the Unification Principle. It gave me a new point of view of the universe and life. It's really wonderful and great. The Unification Principle is the new vision that Reverend Moon elucidated with God's revelation. In reality, Reverend Moon, as a True Parent of human beings, is making effort and opening several dimensions to save human beings. Comrades, please study the Unification Principle. The beginning and ending of human history and the blueprint of God's ideal of creation is in the Unification Principle in detail.
Life after death clearly exists. Prepare your spirits when you are on Earth because our souls will spring eternal in the world of life after death. And, you will need Reverend Moon's guidance. It's time to revolutionize human beings. This world is the place where all sinners have to compensate for every bit of their wrong deeds. Everything here operates by the laws of Heaven. Xun Lu. May 7, 2002.
"God is absolutely the Parent of human kind."
God exists as the Parents of human beings. There is a world after death. Sinners are definitely judged here. Reverend Moon is the Savior, Messiah and True Parent of human kind. He is the person chosen by God. I, Mo-Ruo Guo, was taught the contents of Unification Principle and its ideology in detail by Dr. Sang Hun Lee and Muhammad. Now, I know that I misunderstood and lived wrongly on Earth. If the politicians and ideologists of Communism read the Unification Principle in detail, they would realize clearly that they are doing wrongly. I vow firmly to start a new life centering on the Unification Principle. I realized that God is the Parent of human beings. I proved it with reasoning and experiences. I swear that I will start with God's ideology cleaning up my old method of thinking. Mo-Ruo Guo. May 7, 2002.
"Please lead us in the right direction, away from the wrongness in the realm of Communism. "
I have nothing to say after learning about the Unification Principle and the Unification ideology. Oh, I lived wrongly. The ideology of Communism was wrong. This is my true feeling. Our rebel movements did nothing but increase God's sadness by many degrees. In spite of the fact that there exists the world after death where human spirits live, we strongly denied the existence of human spirits. I don't know how to deal with my Earthly life in which I degraded human beings to an animal level. I deeply regret. I confess with honesty. I did wrong. I lived wrongly.
Now, I finally realized that God is the Parent of human beings. Heavenly father of love and empathy, we will begin our new lives with our best efforts to inherit your love. Also, Reverend Moon, thank you for revealing the Unification Principle. I appreciate it. Reverend Moon, who came to the Earth as the Parent of human kind, please lead us in the right direction away from the wrongness in the realm of Communism. If we understand the reality of the incorporeal world, where spirits live forever, the people in the realm of Communism will be converted wholly. Pyotr Alekseevich Kropotkim, May 7, 2002.
"Thank your for liberating the realm of Communism."
I, Chernyshevskii, am sure that the Unification Principle will influence many ideologists of Communism. Anyone who compares the Unification Principle to Communism will be able to recognize the fallacy of Communism. Generally, revolutionists, ideologists, and politicians try to revolutionize the wrong reality and to fix it. Since they concentrate on reality so much, they have a tendency to neglect the aspects of God's existence, spirits, and the world after death.
By becoming intoxicated by their pursuits of intellect, political power, and reputation, they lose the most precious things in life. Now, I am very sad. I thought God's existence was limited to Christianity. But, God is the Parent of all human beings. Also, I thought the world after death was obscure and abstract. There was no time to think about the spirit world in my busy physical life. God, now we are here. We realized that we have lived wrongly. We will start anew. So far, I have compensated for my sins by living in the place where there is no human trace. Now, I came here. I will begin my life as a child of God. Reverend Moon, thank your for liberating the realm of Communism. Chernyshevskii, May 7, 2002.
"At that time, I didn't see the fallacy of Communism, but now I clearly see it. "
If I, Clara, had had a chance to hear the Unification Principle and its ideology earlier than the ideology of Communism, I would have still remained as a female revolutionary Communist, who was ambitious, considering the ethos at that time. I thought that the life on Earth was all there was to life. I thought that the problems of God's existence, spirits, and the world of death were the results of the imagination of people who were lacking in intellect. However, I am confessing in the world after death. There is a world after death, and God is the Parent of human beings. The desire for ambitiousness, arrogance, self-satisfaction, and self-praise on Earth is simply meaningless.
The place where I am staying now smells awfully bad. It is difficult for a human being to endure this place, but it is the result of my life on Earth. It is the price of sins that a person who lived wrongly on Earth should compensate. This Heavenly world is very interesting and mysterious. Nobody orders spirits to go to any place considering the sins that the spirits made. Nevertheless, spirits find their places by themselves.
In terms of ideology, Communism is really wrong. Now, comparing it to the Unification Principle, a new point of view on the universe and life appears. At that time, I didn't see the fallacy of Communism, but now I see it clearly. Now, I will start anew centering on the ideology of God. Reverend Moon, I believe in the existence of True Parents. Thank you for liberating the ideologists and politicians of Communism. Sincerely, I admit that I have lived wrongly. Pease forgive me. Clara Zetkin, May 7, 2002.
"The Unification Principle is the greatest scripture in the human history."
Reverend Moon, True Parents! I am truly sorry. I repent that I have shamed True Parents by my birth in Korea where True Parents were born. I misunderstood. My useless arrogance and self-praise developed into the wrong ideology. Now, I repent for all that I did on Earth and have pride as a Korean. I will cleanse my old thinking method that I had on Earth. Also, I vow to begin a new life centering on the new truth. Please forgive my wrong deeds in the past. I am sure that God is the Parent of human beings. I am sure about the existence of the world of death and spirits, too. Now, I know the fact that indemnity exists if a human lives wrongly. I believe that Reverend Moon's Unification Principle will be the greatest scripture in human history. Please, trust my beginning of a new life. Kun Kang, May 7, 2002.
"God, am I truly one of your children?"
I, Jung Moo, experienced the real existence of the world after death which is operated orderly and systematically. At that time, I already realized that I had been trapped in my ideology on Earth. The opinion that the existence of human beings does not extend beyond the material world, was in itself extreme fallacy. Why do I see it now? I am sure that the Unification Principle and its ideology are the alternatives of Communism.
Considering this education, I should appreciate highly Muhammad's devoted efforts and love. All the lecturers also led us with kindness, sacrifice, and love. For the first time, I experienced God's sadness and Reverend Moon's providential course. These kinds of tears and love can't be found in the ideology of Communism. We really lived the wrong way on Earth. God's ideal of creation has the essence of love. God, am I truly one of your children? Forgive me. I would like to start again as a child of God. Also, I know how to indemnify my sins that I made on Earth. Until you forgive me, I will be waiting at my place, shouting that God is the Parent of human beings. I know the Heavenly laws are applied here. God, my father, I, a poor child, will start again. Reverend Moon, thank you for saving our lives. Jung Moo, May 7, 2002.
"The Unification Principle and its ideology reformed the structure of my consciousness."
Being a Korean, I became a sinner in front of God. I, Yak Soo Kim, feel endless sorrow. I am honored to have been born in the same country that the Messiah of all humanity came to. Korea is also where the True Parents of mankind were born.
God has watched His children for a long time with sadness and pain. In this providential course, I acted as a figure who was against the flow of human history. I planted wrong hope and wrong point of view to Korean people at that time. However, The Unification Principle and its ideology reformed the structure of my consciousness. Reverend Moon, who elucidated the Unification Principle, True Parent of humankind, I am truly sorry. God, I came here, though so far I have lived wrongly. I will clean up my wrong point of view and will weave a new life serving God as Parents. I think I should indemnify my sins because I lived like a mad man, neglecting the importance of humankind. I believe that you will open the door of liberation. True Parents of humankind, Thank you for giving this opportunity. Yak Soo Kim, May 7, 2002.
"I realized true love, true truth, and true peace."
Reverend Moon, True Parents, thank you for giving me the chance to liberate Communism. But I can't avoid feeling sincerely sorry. I don't know why I was so devoted to the power and reputation I had when it was so useless here. I suddenly came to this world of Heaven after not even giving a thought to the eternal life of spirits or God. Who told me to come here? Nobody ordered me. I came here myself. People of the Earth, there is a world of Heaven where your spirits will live eternal. If you neglect this fact, you will really regret it.
God, I lived wrongly. I couldn't find my Parent God because I was so crazy about materialistic substances. I did wrong. I will go back to the swamp and stay there until you forgive me for my impiety and disobedience. Because I have experienced my parent's, God's love, I am not afraid of whatever kind of bog or swamp I have for my living place. Now I know God's true love, true truth, and true peace. I will live by the Heavenly law. God, Father, please forgive my disobedience. Ha Mook Oh, May 7, 2002.
P.S. Ha Mook Oh reported crying very much. How will he solve the feeling of great sin for being born in Korea, and yet not helping Koreans, just leaving a great sin to God..?
"I regret living as a sinner, caught by the nets of ideology."
I believe in the existence of God. I am certain that human beings, existing with spirits and not just simple matter, are the children of God. I proclaim to the people of the world, that there is a world after death, where spirits live eternally. I also proclaim that there is a law of indemnity where sinners judge their own sins and compensate for it. I, Dolores Ibarruri, truly regret that I didn't know this fact on Earth. I really regret living as a sinner, caught by the nets of ideology, and not living by centering on and serving God.
I learned, through the teachings of Unification Principle, that the laws of Heaven are used here, and I clearly realized the dignity and greatness of human beings. I realized that God's creation of humankind was due to love and heart, and therefore, that a human being's true essence was love. I realized that their essence was not the existence of power, economics or instruments. I experienced God's love here. And so I knew that I lived my life wrongly. Now, I will stand as the female revolutionist of God's ideal. Reverend Moon, True Parents of the world, thank you for giving and allowing me this golden opportunity. I will be born again as the right female revolutionist. I will wait until my period of indemnity is over. Dolores Ibarruri, May 7, 2002.
God, True Parent, thank you very much. Thank you for forgiving us children who betrayed you and giving us another chance for liberation. The 120 politicians, ideologists, and advocates of Communism appeal to you in tears to repent for our past lives and live a life centered on God. Now please be comforted after living a life of tears and sighs from watching the scenes of hell, and we vow, we pledge to you Father, God, to go through any hardship with you. We pray at a beautiful garden where You are present, so please bless us with happiness and peace. The liberation of Heaven and Earth from the realm of Communism is helped by the four great saints. So my eternal Father, please bless us in a position where we can make You, our God, happy as your children. Also, our aged True Parent, I would sincerely like to thank you for giving us a chance to be liberated from the realm of Communism. I pray in the name of Jesus, a blessed central family, Amen.
God, I did wrong. I truly lived wrong. I, in the position of a sinner, have been given a new life. I, the cruel Stalin, learned the love of human beings through Your love and the four great saints. I learned the right way of living of human beings through Unification Principle and ideology; and I learned why my past life was wrong. I can't dare to ask for Your forgiveness, but I will give my best effort to establish God's Kingdom as a child of God.
And Reverend Moon, True Parent, I will promise, because you gave me a new life, which I greatly thank you for, absolute obedience and absolute submission. I, Stalin pray, representing the 120 others.
God Mansei! True Parents Mansei! Liberation of the realm of Communism Mansei!
