The Report on the Seminar in the Spirit World for 120 Communists
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

exists as Parent of humankind.
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
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. I 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.'
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.
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

Divine Principle saved me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
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
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.
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
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.

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

succession. An assassin sent by Stalin killed him while in exile in Mexico.)

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.
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.
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 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.
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.

Communist countries will perish without fail.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 truly like to appeal from
the spirit world for the Communist countries to change direction. Khrushchev,

forgiven so that I can be included among the people. I'm also grateful that I

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?
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

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

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

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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,

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

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.*

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

to materialism and the temporal life?

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.
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.
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
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 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 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.
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.

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.

disappeared, depositing me in this place without a single word.
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
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.
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.
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,

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
Mohammed first, and then participated in this seminar. I can speak; I even have
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.
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.

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?
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.

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.

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.

(1896-1953; established the Communist government in Czechoslovakia.)
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.
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

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.
(1918-1989, a dictator controlling the Rumanian Communist government.)
clearly experienced the way of Heaven.
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 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?
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.
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.

South Vietnam under Communism.)
Unification Principle is the hope and torchlight for all humanity.
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.
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.

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 children. 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.
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.

guiding ideology for your countries.
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.

on a wrong ideology.
Guevara, acknowledge the existence of God, and experience that there is a world

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,

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.

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.
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

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.
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
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.

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.
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.
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.

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
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,

(1901-1990, a leading Marxist philosopher.)
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.
(1903-1933, proletarian author who died while being tortured by police.)
you treat God s precious children as mere material beings?
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.
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
(1897-1985; Marxist economist and member of Rounou [Worker-Farmer] group that

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.

philosophy of you Party members is an incorrect philosophy and a philosophy of
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.

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.
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.

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

hurts me most is our unfilial behavior as children who failed to attend God as
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,

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.

are following the wrong path. If you continue on this way, you will all become
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.

Revolution who lost power to Lenin's Bolsheviks as a result of the October
the path of true persons."
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
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.
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.

one can escape the law of Heaven."
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.
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.

Heaven, and live the correct way henceforth."
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.
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
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.

who stood with Trotsky against Stalin. He was later executed.)
is a place where your soul will spend eternity."
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.
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.
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.
Nikolay Ivonovich Bukharin (1888-1938, Soviet leader who allied with Stalin after Lenin's death and

couldn't we have treated people as human beings?"
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.
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.
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

he participated in the narodniki movement. He translated the Communist Manifesto

must completely be uprooted from the Earth."
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.
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.
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.
(1890-1986, worked with Stalin, forcibly pursued establishing "One Nation
Socialism." Frushichov later defeated him while confronting him.)
will definitely fall."
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.
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
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.
(1899-1953, Person in charge of Soviet national security and the police; used
terrorism and incited fear during Stalin's regime)
should change his view of life, centered on Godism."
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
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.
