Joshua and Caleb verses Cain and Abel

This morning reading during our prayer meeting (HDK), True Mother spoke about Joshua and Caleb. She says: “Throughout their lives, Joshua and Caleb remained loyal to Heaven, and they led the chosen people into Canaan.”

I then realized, that referring to each other as Cain or Abel may not be the best way anymore. What about if we were using the expression “Joshua and Caleb” instead?

Cain and Abel had their time. Including in our movement.

We referred to each other as either being in the position of Cain or Abel. I have prayed many prayers, mentioning the necessity for Abels to become “True Abels” so that Cains become “True Cains”. However, this morning reading, tells me that it is time for us to refer to each other’s as Joshua and Caleb instead. They had a relationship of respect towards each other with the same goals. They supported each other and each found their place in the providence in accordance with their own abilities.

Our young people of today are the one who are going to face the end of the last days. Not an easy task. The only way they will make it, is by supporting, caring, and working together with the same goals. Thinking “Joshua and Caleb” is a good way.

With gratitude, always,

Living for the sake of others, how to apply this life principle?

It is not difficult to fulfill this when the situation is obvious that someone needs help, many of us will rush to help, give money, provide a meal, and pray.

However, living for the sake of others is a lot more than just taking care of emergencies. Living for the sake of others is to be constantly aware of what we do and not do, which might affect someone else’s life and emotions.

One example:

I have seen, way too many times, in my line of work, the missing opportunities of “living for the sake of others”. The example below is, unfortunately too frequent.

Singles register on OMS in order to find a spouse. They create a profile, they become a candidate. Then, at some point, via a different source they do find someone, and start an earnest conversation. However, they do not notify me, so that their profile becomes invisible to others.

In the meantime, their profile still gets looked at, and shared by Matching Supporters to candidates. Someone gets their hopes up because they read a good profile that truly appeal to them. And then, suddenly, we get an email that tells us, the individual has been in a relationship for a while now, could you please turn the profile off?

This is truly sad.

Definition of a True Woman

A true woman will have accomplished what she was created for.  A true woman will have the feeling of fulfillment that will resonate throughout her being.  A true woman will have experienced all feminine aspect of God’s love.  A true woman will know she is not a man and will have no desire to ever compete with one or become one.

 A true woman can give life.  A true woman can nurture life.  A true woman can look at her husband and sons in ecstasy and be proud of their worldly accomplishments without envy, their victories are her doing.  A true woman will raise her daughters to become true woman.

 In an ideal world, a true woman shall be found at all levels of society.  She will not be found there because she victoriously overcame men’s rules.  She will be found there because she was the best individual for the position she now holds.

Our names...

This picture is from late May 1979 - Jim and Tula Mylar, President Salonen, Kem and I.



From the time I was engaged to my future husband Kem Mylar, I was always presented to a new comer as “Kem’s wife”, not Anne-Marie, but “Kem’s wife”. I had no problem with it. From the very beginning I appreciated the choice that Rev. Moon had made in choosing him as my future husband.

He was, at that time, the assistant of the President of HSA-UWC in the USA. Many brothers and sisters knew him.

Thirty-one years later, A matching platform, which I created became live. It is called the “Online Matching System”. Quite quickly, it started to be used across the world as one of the tools for the new generations of Unificationists to find their future spouse.

My husband then became “Anne-Marie’s husband”, not Kem, any more, but “Anne-Marie’s husband”. He used to joke about it, he did not mind it. He actually loved it.

He and I were and still are today “one”.
Thank you Heavenly Parent and True Parents for our blessed lives.

The black and white picture is our very first picture together - We had just been matched. The other picture is our last one - August 2012. About 5 weeks prior to his departure to the Spiritual World.

Let us seek the beauty within our heart...

Someone shared with me recently the poem below. It remind us that love, heart, and beauty can be found in every human being. It is not exclusive to certain groups or races.

A peaceful and meaningful world will only exist when we humble ourselves enough to realized that we know very little about each other and therefore before we kill out of fear or hate we need to learn each others heart and soul.



Rumi or Jalāl al-Dīn Muammad Rūmī, was a 13th-century poet and Sufi mystic originally from Afghanistan in the then Greater Iran.


I tried to find Him at the cross of the Christians, but He was not there.

I went to the temples of the Hindus and to the ancient pagodas, but there was no trace of Him anywhere.

I searched for Him in the mountains and valleys, but I could neither find Him in the high places nor in the low places.

I went to the Kaaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

I questioned the scholars and philosophers, but He was beyond their understanding.

Then, I examined my heart, and it was there that He was dwelling when I found Him.

He is nowhere else.

History verses Memories

I participate every morning to a Morning Prayer Meeting. It is via Zoom. I truly enjoy seeing many of my fellow brothers and sisters. I enjoy sharing with them for several minutes every day. They are kind to me, and I am kind to them too.

These days we are reading from a book titled, "Mother of Peace". True Mother (Dr. Hak Ja Han), is describing the story of her life, starting with her Grand-Mother, and Mother, at the time where Korea was occupied by Japan.

Suddenly a flow of thoughts came to me and I wanted to share them below.

My reflection would be too long to share in a few minutes. For the 1st 17 years of my life the only stories that I heard from my parents about their lives, were the 5 years of war/occupation of France during World War Two. When one is in the middle of a dramatic event, it cannot be remove from memory and will dominate (take subject position) the life of the individual. That is one of the reasons that World Peace is necessary - so that we can go beyond this kind of memories.

We cannot forget history - but we should not re-lived it every day either. And only those who did not live it, can be able to do so.

Healing process will come from the lives of those

who did not actually live the actual event.

Do you agree that the Unification Movement needs to unite and heal within at some point in order to be victorious?

Unite: Yes

Heal: Will take a long time and therefore the victory is when everyone accepts the fact that we don’t all think alike, but are willing to do our best to respect, work, and grow together.  

Once my husband asked me the following question: How long do you think it is going to take to have Heaven on earth – literally. 

I responded: 2,000 years. He was shocked, he could not fathom that it would take that long. But I did.


Even, if we had every single person living on earth today, blessed and educated and understanding the value of the blessing, most of them will still be spiritual infant. It is going to take them the rest of their lives on earth to grow and go from infant to possibly teens.

I am 72 years old, my personality is such that I had to lie to my priest every week, so that he had “sins” to forgive me. I did not have any sins (at least to my child understanding), I made them up. However, since my husband departure (and probably because of it), I have come to truly understand that I know very little about what it means to be someone “like God” and be capable to be the lord of the universe, which is the status that God wants us to reach. 

So, 2,000 is not so bad, if during these 2,000 we are all trying to do our best. 

Spiritual growth comes first.

What is spiritual growth: It is applying the principle of living for the sake of other and learning how to make it happen without ignoring our own needs (not easy to do).

Spiritual growth has nothing to do with rituals – however, rituals can help (but they have to remain in the object position).

Then the way we do everything else will improve:

  • Politics
  • Media
  • Entertainment
  • Science
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Art

Media and Entertainment industries are the two that could expedite the ability for us, because they are the medium that all of us use to get information. Unfortunately, the information we get is 95% of the time leading humanity into the wrong direction.
