The Master's article for
Share International magazine, October 2008
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme, 5 September 2008
When men awaken to their true potential they will be amazed by the range
of creativity which will become theirs. The audacity of their thought will
at first astound them, and will lead them into enterprises all but unimaginable
today. Men will find that they are, in truth, potential Gods. From the deep
slumber of the past men will awaken and slough off the heavy coat of ignorance
which for long has delayed their forward progress. Thus will it be.
Man is now at the turning point in his long adventure in life on planet
Earth. From now on, all progress will be the result of his considered will
and reason. No longer will greed and competition impede his journey to perfection;
no longer will war, and want for millions, degrade and stain his path; never
again will lawlessness and separation rule on planet Earth.
Man’s foot now stands on a ladder of ascent which will take him to
the very stars.
As We, your elder Brothers, take Our places beside you, you will see
in Us exemplars, and be inspired to become like Us. You will see that We
know no competition, that We value all life in whatever form. You will see
that We love without distinction or condition; and work only and always
for the fulfilment of the Plan. Men are destined by the Plan to reach that
same perfection; Ours is the task to show them the way.
The path to such perfection is well trodden by Us and We have set in
place the needed landmarks: men must see humanity as One, brothers and sisters,
sons of the One Father.
Freedom and Justice are essential to all, everywhere, without exception,
and can only be achieved by trust.
Sharing alone can create that trust, and set men on the path to their
Men, to be happy, must live within the Laws of Life: of Cause and Effect,
Rebirth, Harmlessness and Sacrifice. These basic Laws are the Ancient Landmarks
which protect men from self-destruction and remorse.
When Maitreya steps forward into open vision you will hear these Laws
again, for they form the basis of all His teaching and the basis of all
life on planet Earth.
The awakening of men depends on humanity grasping the import of these Laws
and their willingness and readiness to change. This present so-called civilization
has ‘run its bolt’, is decayed and dying, with little further
to offer men than hardship and fear, and, finally, self-annihilation.
Maitreya comes to show men that they have within themselves all that
it takes to become the Gods they essentially are. To show them how simple
and beautiful is that way, and to inspire them to grasp and accept their
destiny. Maitreya doubts not their response.

Questions & Answers -
Q. (1) How will we know when Maitreya is going to appear? (2)
What can I do now?
A. (1) It is very soon. Watch your television. (2) Tell
all who will listen that He is here.
Q. What will Maitreya bring that is markedly different from the
truths that have been spoken over previous generations?
A. His love, His wisdom, His MIND, His ENERGY. There has never
been an Avatar better equipped than Maitreya is today.
Q. What can we do to make Maitreya’s emergence sooner and
when approximately will He emerge?
A. My information is that He is emerging very, very soon – even
by our standards. I have been told for 30-odd years that He is emerging ‘soon’,
but that is by the Masters’ standards of time. They work in
2,000-year cycles, so a few years to the Masters is just like a Sunday
Maitreya’s emergence is based on certain laws, above all the
laws governing our free will. At any time in the last 26 years He could
have been invoked by humanity, by humanity performing just a few actions
which would have allowed Him to come forward.
At a press conference in May 1982 I talked to almost a
hundred journalists from all the major networks of this country [USA],
plus the BBC, and revealed Maitreya’s exact whereabouts – the
Asian community of London, which I had known for some years, but was
not allowed to divulge until then. I invited them to come to London
and to go through the motions of looking for Maitreya. They did not
have to find Him; they could not find Him without His help. But if
one or two or three journalists of repute, and therefore with clout,
would come to London and simply go through the motions of looking for
Him, Maitreya would come forward to them. And nobody did anything.
So Maitreya had to take the long, slow path out into the
world which has taken 31 years because humanity was not ready or did
not make the media act. The media would not act unless they were pushed
by humanity, and so nothing was done.
It has taken time until the events themselves occur like
the stock-exchange crash which is happening, the banking crash; the
economic bubbles are bursting, as you well know, not only here [USA]
but in Europe and elsewhere in the world. Maitreya made that prediction
in 1988, He said the collapse would occur and it would begin in Japan.
It did begin in Japan in 1989 when the Nikkei average fell from 40,000
points to 7,000 points and remained at about 7 to 10 for a decade or
The timing of His emergence is up to humanity. If we do
not act, Maitreya cannot act. There are laws governing an Avatar of
such a stature as Maitreya. He cannot simply come in when you or I
would like, or even when He would like.
And what is the approximate time? It is very soon. That
is all I can say. I cannot say a day or a month, but very, very soon.
Q. Western governments are supporting Ukraine's pro-Western government
because they fear that it is becoming the front line in the "new
Cold War". Leading political figures are expressing support
and queueing to visit Georgia and Ukraine. (1) Why is the West so
determined to support Georgia and Ukraine? (2) What part should NATO
play in all this?
A. (1) They are dicing with great forces which is extremely
dangerous. (2) None.
Q. What can we do, besides decrees and prayers, to bring peace
and prevent war between the USA and Israel versus Iran?
A. Make your voice heard in opposition to such folly. Demonstrate.
March. Write to your representatives in Congress/Parliament, etc, etc.
Q. How do we best fix and solve the ethical dilemma of both over-population
and over-consumption to save the Earth for future Earthlings?
A. By sharing the world’s resources.
Q. Many people who have photos of UFOs claim that they never saw
the crafts with their own eyes. Are the images of the UFOs being
projected into people’s cameras by the people who are in the
A. Yes, it is very rare, but it has happened. It is not
the usual way. Most people see a UFO and photograph it, and then it
is on the film. It might be a good photograph or not a very good photograph.
I have seen both – very clear photographs as if you were standing
6 feet away from them, and I have seen others which are like bubbles
UFOs are not dense physical – they are etheric physical. When
we see them the occupants of the craft have simply lowered the vibrational
rate of the atoms making up the craft until they come within our sight.
Our sight is limited; it only goes up to a certain level. Beyond that
level the craft are invisible unless you have etheric vision. When
they disappear, as they appear to do, they lift the vibrational rate
up again to its usual state and ‘disappear’. They are probably
still there. They can speed up to thousands of miles an hour and then
More and more information will be released by the governments
in the world in the very near future because the Space People who man
the UFOs, which are mainly made on Mars, are showing themselves more
and more. It is what the Master calls the Gathering of the Forces of
Light. As the Forces of Light of Maitreya gather as He steps forward
openly into the world, so the UFOs, which are also the Forces of Light,
show themselves in tremendous numbers. Today, they are seen in greater
numbers and to more people than ever before, all over the world.
The governments are opening up their archives and ‘coming clean’ about
the UFOs, having hidden the information for 60 years and telling all
sorts of lies about the nature of UFOs. They are absolutely harmless
to humanity and are certainly not responsible for all the hideous atrocities
claimed by this government [USA], various agencies and others around
I have been to the Air Ministry in London, England, and
asked them what their take is on the UFOs and they said: “We
do not look on the UFOs as harmful to the security of this country.” I
said: “Oh, so you believe that they exist, but they do not represent
a threat to the security of Britain.” They said: “No, we
are not saying that. We are just saying they do not represent a threat
to the security of Britain.” “Yes, I know that, but they
must exist in the first place not to represent a threat at all.” They
replied: “Well, we are not saying that.”
Now governments are showing that they have records - books
upon books. I have seen them, all marked ‘Secret’, ‘Top
Secret’, ‘Classified’, and they are beginning to
open up the archives to some extent. Even the Vatican, the last institution
that you would think to ‘come clean’ on UFOs, is saying
that it is possible that UFOs do exist. It is possible that there is
life on other planets. “We cannot restrict God to have created
man only on one small planet in our system.” So they are getting
the message too.
Q. Is there a connection between the Day of Declaration and the
recognition or acceptance of extraterrestrial life?
Q. On 18 June 2008, an unidentified flying object was seen by
over 100 children and adults in the Hunter’s Point area of
San Francisco. The minority community of Bayview, Hunter’s
Point, has for years been subjected to the worst forms of toxic pollution
in San Francisco. (1) Was this UFO fly-by a sign for the local activist
group to continue their fight for social and environmental justice?
(2) Is Maitreya supporting the community’s demand for justice?
A. (1) No, it was part of the ‘gathering of the Forces of Light’.
(2) Not specifically.
Q. Which countries and political and economic figures are currently
practising the teachings of Maitreya?
Q. There is a growing consensus among the US political class that
no one from the Bush administration will be held accountable for
torture, illegal spying and waging a horrible war based on lies.
Many people are outraged! Please will we ever see any of these sinister
men brought to justice?
A. Probably not. In any case, it is better to leave such
matters to the Lords of Karma.
Q. What do you think of competition going on now at the Olympics
A. Competition should be restricted to games.
Q. (1) What is the role of the feminine principle in the process
of evolution? (2) Is there someone who represents this principle
in a physical body at this time?
A. (1) The role of the female principle is to be the creator
of the forms for all physical manifestation. (2) Yes.
Q. If the Earth were to be destroyed, what would happen to the
souls living on the planet at that moment?
A. We would end up on some unevolved planet at the edge
of the system. The climb upwards from there would be endless and fraught
with unspeakable pain and suffering.
Q. Will there be a cure for AIDS?
A. Eventually, yes.
Q. Will old people be able to receive Maitreya’s teachings
in the temples, or will they be just for young people as I think
I’ve understood from your lecture?
A. It depends on how ‘alive’ they are at their age. Yes,
many ‘elderly’ people will take the first or second initiation
before Maitreya in the Temples of the time.
Q. I would like to see Maitreya in person, and hug Him. Do you
think I’ll get to do so if I come to London?
A. You do not have to be in London. If there were a good
reason for you to see Maitreya He could appear to you anytime, anywhere,
in any guise.

Letters to the editor
Over a number of years, some of the Masters, in particular Maitreya and the Master Jesus, have appeared at Benjamin Creme’s lectures and Transmission Meditations. They also appear, in different guises, to large numbers of people around the world. Some of these recount their experiences to Share International magazine. If the experiences are authenticated by Benjamin Creme’s Master, the letters are published. These experiences are given to inspire, to guide or teach, often to heal and uplift. Very often, too, they draw attention to, or comment on, in an amusing way, some fixed intolerance to, for example, smoking or drinking. Many times the Masters act as saving ‘angels’ in accidents, during wartime, earthquakes and other disasters. They use a ‘familiar’, a thoughtform, who seems totally real, and through whom the Master’s thoughts can be expressed: They can appear as a man, a woman, a child, at will. Occasionally They use the ‘blueprint’ of a real person, but in most cases the ‘familiar’ is an entirely new creation. The following letters are examples of this means of communication by the Masters. Please note: In the absence of any indication to the contrary, the editors will assume that your name may be printed. Unless requested otherwise, some of these letters may be reproduced on the Share-International.org website. Only initials, town and country will be used.
Keep the faith!
In March 2008, I was attending a weekly peace demonstration
on the Marietta Square, in Atlanta. There are usually just a few
of us, including a woman called Judy who is there every Friday afternoon.
About 10 minutes or so before we were going to stop, a young black
couple walked up to our corner. The young lady went across the street
but the young man stayed and read our signs. He was about 6 foot
2. He had a small spiked dreadlock hairstyle and the clearest, brightest
eyes and face. I also noticed that he had the most brilliant purple
scarf around his neck. He read all our signs and read my sign with
Maitreya’s quote: “Without sharing there can be no justice.” He
smiled and it looked like he was missing a front top tooth. He then
went over to talk with my friend Judy. She was telling him how down
she was over the war. He said: “Ma’am you have to keep
the faith; the changes are coming.” As he said this, I looked
over at him and remembered something Benjamin Creme said about how
the Masters sometimes might wear a business suit, but with bedroom
slippers! I don’t know what compelled me to look at his feet
but I did and thought “no slippers”. I looked up and
he flashed me the biggest smile. I noticed his teeth were perfect,
no missing tooth. He said his goodbyes and went across the street.
We finished up and I crossed the street to go to my parked
car. The young lady was on the pay-phone trying to make a call. She
turned to me and said: “Sir, the pay-phone took my money and
I don’t have any more change. Can you spare 50 cents?” I
handed her a dollar and said: “Take it into the restaurant and
see if they can make some change for you.” She said she would
be right back. I said: “Just keep it.”
I walked a few more feet and saw the young man sitting
on a park bench. He said: “ I am so sick and tired of the way
things are being run in the world.” He said: “Soon you
are going to see me and I am going to go before the people and tell
them how we can all make the changes, together.” He said some
other things and I can’t remember everything he said but he then
looked into my eyes and said: “I never judge anyone on whether
they are good or bad. I only look at the good things that they do.” He
stood up and said: “Keep the faith. You are going to see me in
front of the people real soon and we are going to make the changes
together.” As he was about to walk away, he asked me for a quarter.
I said I’d got a better idea and reached into my pocket and pulled
out my wallet and handed him about twenty in ones; all the money I
had in my pocket. He said loudly: “No you didn’t! Thank
you so much!” He skipped away through the crowded sidewalk looking
over the people and yelled: “Keep the faith. You are going to
see me real soon! We’ll make the changes together! Remember you
are going to see me real soon!” As he walked away, looking
at me, yelling again that I would see him real soon, I noticed
how no one paid him any attention. It was like they didn’t even
Was this man Maitreya or a Master? Who was the young woman?
G.W., Atlanta, GA, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the man was Maitreya. The ‘woman’ was
the Master Jesus.)
Four letters from the same person:
(1) Some time in the mid 1970s I attended ‘Bat Day’ at
Yankee Stadium in New York with three of my brothers. We were relatively
young at the time, 11-16 years old. After the baseball game, we were
approached by a man who asked us if we wanted to sell the bats we were
given at the game. We began a short bargaining session which ended
when this man attacked my brother and started choking him in an attempt
to take the bat. Out of nowhere, it seemed, appeared two men in suits
who grabbed the man, giving us the opportunity to jump into our parents’ car
which had just come around the corner to pick us up.
Were the two men in suits Masters? If so, who?
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the men were Maitreya
and the Master Jesus.)
A book not for burning
(2) In the early-mid 1980s my girlfriend and I were driving along
an interstate highway outside of Laramie, Wyoming. It was about 9.30
in the evening. We were alone heading east on the roadway when a woman
in a station wagon pulled up to the side of our truck and honked her
horn to gain our attention. I rolled down the window and she yelled
to us that our truck had smoke coming out of the back of the camper.
I quickly pulled over to the side, opened the back and flames shot
up. We had all of our belongings inside the camper. An ‘eighteen
wheeler’ stopped on the other side of the interstate and the
driver ran across the road with a fire extinguisher but it ran out
of fluid before he could put the fire out. We stood way back as we
watched the truck and its contents go up in a blaze which lit up the
As I stood back, the only object that I hoped had not been
destroyed was a ‘baby book’ my Mom kept when my brothers
and I were very small. It contained short descriptions of us from birth
to 7 years old. The next day we went to the garage where the truck
had been towed. It was completely burnt, tyres and all. Even jewellery,
spoons and the camper shell had been melted. But we found the ‘baby
book’ with only burnt edges. (1) Could the woman in the station
wagon or (2) the truck driver have been a Master? (3) Was there divine
intervention which saved the ‘baby book’?
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms: (1) No; (2) No; (3) Yes,
by the Master Jesus.)
(3) In December 1998, at about 10pm, I walked into the post office
to pick up mail from my PO box. As I turned around the corner I was
surprised to see a man sitting cross-legged on the ground. He was a
homeless man seeking shelter from a very cold spell of weather. I struck
up a conversation while I retrieved my mail and then sat down next
to him and continued the conversation. His name was Mike and he asked
me if I believe in Jesus and if I thought he would return. I answered: “Yes,
I believe in Jesus,” and then I suggested to him that perhaps
Jesus has already returned. He asked me if I read the Bible and if
I knew what the last page said. I replied that I did not know and that
I was not a regular reader of the Bible.
About 5-10 minutes into our conversation, he asked me if
I would buy him something to eat. “Absolutely,” I said
and went out to get him a meal. The only thing open close by was a
restaurant. I entered and ordered a sandwich. When I began to pay for
the sandwich I found that I only had $5 and that was not enough. They
would not take my credit card. I told them that the sandwich was for
a homeless man at the post office and the manager, being very gracious,
charged me only the $5 for the sandwich.
I returned to the post office, gave Mike his dinner and
sat down with him again to chat. It seemed odd that he never so much
as looked at his dinner. It also seemed odd that he had admitted to
me that he was an alcoholic, yet while we were sitting there and he
was continually belching, I could not smell alcohol on his breath.
Another man came over to retrieve his mail and Mike said
to him: “You’re a better looking man than I,” to
which the stranger replied: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Right
at that moment another person came into the post office – quite
a busy post office for 10 o’clock in the evening! This person
(a woman) went right up to Mike, bent down and put five single dollar
bills on the floor for him. Mike thanked her, pushed them over to me
and said, “Here, you take the money”. This again seemed
very odd to me. I pushed the money back towards him and said: “I
think you could probably use this.” We talked a bit more and
as I got up to leave I told them that I enjoyed meeting them and said
goodbye. Walking out of the post office and down the steps, I began
to feel very deeply a sense of sorrow – how unjust this world
has become and the pain that people have to go through. Could this
homeless man have been a Master? And the others?
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the ‘homeless’ man
was the Master Jesus. The ‘woman’ was Maitreya.)
(4) During one of the meditations at the San Francisco Transmission
Meditation conference in July 1998, two funny characters came into
the room to meditate. One made a lot of noise talking, and the other
one never said a word. No one knew who they were. They stayed for a
short time and then left. Were these guys perhaps Maitreya and the
D.L., Boulder, Colorado.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that they were indeed.
The talkative one was Maitreya, and the silent one was the Master Jesus.)
Please tell Mr Creme, thank you for all he has done. He
has made a difference to my life, and I think because of reading
[his books], I have become a little ‘better’ as a person
and grown in my understanding and care. I have done Transmission
Meditation, but not as much now as before.
Because I knew about Maitreya, when I was given the opportunity,
I was able to get a food pantry started and running locally. It has
been over 10 years now, with volunteers and lots of folks who donate
food to it. I asked mentally at the time for Maitreya's help in getting
it going. I think I was given it. I have nothing to do with it now,
but feel really glad that there is help for the people in the community
who have gone through tough times over the years. Even if I got no ‘help’ from
Maitreya, I feel that Mr Creme's writings made the difference that
helped me to make this project work. So thank you, Mr Creme and Maitreya.
C.C., Merrimack, New Hampshire, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that help was given by Maitreya
for the pantry. Mr Creme thanks you for your kind words.)
I have been very worried about the state of the world and
the control of this world by such astounding ignorance. It gives
me a great deal of relief to see the Share International website
and hear about Maitreya. I am overjoyed to hear of such wonderful
things happening in this world. I know there are people and businesses
working to help the condition of this world that I have found on
the internet, but I have previously seen no unifying focus.
I would like to offer my unbounded thanks, Mr Creme, for
the work you are doing to alert the world of the coming of Maitreya
and express the hope and peace that it brings to me personally. Thank
you so much,
R.L., Malibu, California, USA.
(Benjamin Creme replies: People are very kind, thank you.)
In safe hands
When I was a child, my mother was very ill. The doctor
said if she made it through the night it would be a miracle. Still
my mother made us go to school that day. My dad was out of town working
when this took place. That morning Jesus appeared to my mother. My
mother simply said: “Please don't take me now, my babies need
me.” Jesus left. My mom is going to be 74 this year. She hasn't
told many people, but she was truly blessed by Jesus and has made
it through three times when the doctors said she wouldn’t.
I recently told her that she should share this story with the world.
We need to realize that we are hurting Jesus and change.
R.H., West Seneca, New York, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the Master Jesus did look
after her three times. The Master Jesus is, as is Maitreya, always ready to
be called upon for help. People everywhere should know this, as you say.)
Share International regularly prints
photographs sent in by readers showing a variety of different light
phenomena: light blessings, crosses of light and light images. Typically,
a column or swirl of light is discovered on the photograph after
development. These patterns of light are not caused by film faults
or accidents in the developing process and are only seen on the exposure
in question, not the whole film. Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms
that they are blessings manifested by Maitreya or the Master Jesus.
A further selection of light-blessing photographs follows, chosen
from the many sent to Share International.
Image of Jesus on a cupboard
One morning my wife Wendy was lying down in the bedroom,
resting with her eyes closed, when she felt a very light touch on
her face. She opened her eyes expecting to see me, however I was
in a different room in the house. As she looked around she noticed
for the first time an image on her closet door. She had lived in
the house for five years (and I for 10 years) and neither of us had
ever noticed ‘the man’ in the door – and we are
very observant people.
To us there is no question that it is Jesus, based on internet
research of what he could have looked like according to the Shroud
of Turin, Ariel Agemian’s painting, and many other renditions.
I feel, based on all my research, that this is truly one of the most
distinct appearances of Jesus that there has been.
Who is manifesting this face on the door?
W. and J.D., East Windsor, New Jersey, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the image is manifested by
the Master Jesus.)
A stillborn premature baby weighing just 600 grams was only 23 weeks
old when it was born on 18 August 2008 in a hospital in Western Galilee;
it was pronounced dead and taken to the hospital mortuary where it
remained for five hours before its parents came to take it for burial.
As the mother picked the tiny body up the child moved, opened its eyes
and took hold of its mother’s finger. Doctors are calling it
a miracle baby and have no explanation, other than to say the low temperatures
in the mortuary probably helped ‘keep it alive’ although
they had declared it stillborn.

by the Master Jesus.)
Our Brothers in Space – excerpts from a
The growing number of sightings of UFOs or extraterrestrial
craft worldwide is leading to an increasing demand for
more openness on the part of governments and for objective
investigation by the media. In addition, crop circles
are also attracting media attention. Their spectacular
design and extraordinary complexity, and the speed with
which they are created, make it virtually impossible
to dismiss them as man-made. According to Benjamin Creme’s
information, both phenomena are the work of the Space
Brothers, and are a sign of Maitreya’s imminent
We present a compilation which reveals the reality
and mission of the Space Brothers and brings a new understanding
of the nature of our Universe and our place within it.
Included is a selection of quotations from Maitreya (Messages
from Maitreya the Christ, and Maitreya’s
Teachings – The Laws of Life), Benjamin
Creme’s Master (A Master Speaks),
and Benjamin Creme’s writings.
My Teaching will show you that behind all appearances
stands That which we call Life. There is naught else anywhere
in Cosmos. Hold forever within you this concept, and realise
your connection with that Life. (Maitreya, from Message
Important events are taking place in many parts of the
world. People everywhere will be astonished by the reports.
These will include sightings, in unprecedented numbers,
of spacecraft from our neighbouring planets, Mars and Venus
in particular. Nothing like this increased activity, over
vast areas of the Earth, will have been seen before. Those
who have steadfastly refused to take seriously the reality
of this phenomenon will find it difficult to deny. More
and more accounts of contact with the occupants of the
spacecraft will add their testimony to the fact of their
existence. Miraculous happenings of all kinds will continue
and multiply in number and variety. The minds of men will
be baffled and amazed by these wonders, and this will cause
them to ponder deeply.
Into this wonder-filled, wondering world Maitreya will
quietly enter and begin His open work. He will be asked
to counter their doubts and fears, to explain these happenings
and He will vouchsafe their validity. These extraordinary
events will continue unabated and cause many to prophesy
the ending of the world. Maitreya, however, will continue
in His simple way and interpret differently these events.
Thus will Maitreya encourage men to see the marvellous
breadth and scope of life, the many layers of which man
knows but little till now. Gently He will introduce them
bit by bit to the basic truths of our existence, the Laws
which govern it, and the benefits achieved by living within
these Laws. He will acquaint man with the vastness of our
Galaxy and show that, in time, men of Earth will conquer
Space and Time. He will encourage men to seek within, as
well as without, for the answers to their problems, and
validate their constant connection to each other and to
Cosmos. He will remind humanity of its long history and
of the many perils which man has overcome. He will sow
the seeds of faith in our own illustrious future and vouchsafe
the eternal divinity of man. He will show that the path
of life, the evolutionary journey, leads unfailingly upwards
as well as for ever onwards, and that to make the journey
together, as brothers and sisters, is the surest way and
the way most lit by joy. Look, then, for the signs of Maitreya’s
entrance, make it known, and uplift the hope of your brothers.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master, ‘The gathering of
the Forces of Light’)
All the planets at Hierarchic level are interconnected
and are all in communication. This solar system acts as
a unit – it is not one planet and a whole
lot of dead planets. They are all teeming with life at
different stages. We are at a midway stage; Venus is unbelievably
evolved compared with this planet, as is Jupiter, Mercury,
Saturn and various other planets. (Benjamin Creme, The
Humanity has naively believed that they are the only ones
in space. But there are others there, far advanced, who
have always watched over us, teaching us not to kill, to
respect others, and to learn to be happy and free. They
have always protected humanity and they will not allow
it to destroy itself by the exploitation of science in
space. (Maitreya, Maitreya’s Teachings – The
Laws of Life)
There are myriad forms throughout cosmos and every one
of them, including all the human beings, are interrelated
in the sense that they are all atoms. There is only the
atomic structure of all cosmos. That is where we come from.
That is, as the Master says, “the Source of our Being”.
(Benjamin Creme, The Art of Cooperation)
It is the love of God for Its creation which impels the
Logos Itself to take incarnation and to demonstrate Itself
through a planetary form. We are part of that planetary
form. We are thoughtforms in the mind of the Logos. As
the Christ so beautifully put it, “we are His dreams”.
He brought us into manifestation, and in the same way can
take us out of manifestation. We owe our whole existence
and conscious awareness to His act of service on behalf
of the solar Logos. He, in His turn, has created His body
of manifestation, the solar system, in relation to His
awareness of the Plan of “the One about whom Naught
may be said” at the centre of our galaxy. We are
related to that same impulse every time we serve. Every
impulse of the soul leading to service is a demonstration
at our own quite small level of an impulse initiated many
countless light-years away and light-years back in time
by the Logos at the heart of our galaxy. (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya’s
Mission Volume One)
Before long, a new approach to science will open the way
for a complete readjustment in men’s attitude to
the Reality in which we live. The new science will show
humanity that all is One, that each fragmented part of
which we are aware is intimately connected with all others,
that that relationship is governed by certain laws, mathematically
determined, and that within each fragment is the potential
of the Whole. This new knowledge will transform men’s
experience of the world and of each other and confirm
for them the truth that God and man are One … In
this fertile climate, the hidden psychic powers of man
will unfold naturally and the vast potential of the human
mind will conquer space and time and control the energies
of the universe itself. The resources of the human spirit
are unlimited. In a crescendo of revelation, the glory
of the unseen worlds will be revealed to man’s
astonished gaze and the full magnitude of the divine
creation will be realized. (Benjamin Creme’s Master,
from ‘The new civilization’)
The aim of our life, whether we have realized it or not,
is the establishment of unity, representing the unity which
already exists because every atom in the manifested universe
is interrelated with every other atom. Unity is not simply
an idea which we can hold or not hold; it is driving us
on our evolutionary process. This evolution, expansion
of consciousness, must be a process of ever-widening awareness
of unity and a synthesis of all the possible aspects of
unity that exist until you have the ‘Mind of God’,
seeing the unity that underlies the whole of existence.
(Benjamin Creme, The Art of Co-operation)
Our indebtedness to the Space Brothers
Solar energy – This is the energy of the new age – there
will be no need for nuclear energy. The power of the sun
will be used for heating, transportation and driving industry.
The ‘Brothers’ are teaching the engineers
how to store solar energy right now. (Maitreya, Maitreya’s
Teachings – The Laws of Life)
The Space Brothers have on this planet various people,
like Adamski and others, who are used to bring the reality
of the Space Brothers to the world, but also for other
reasons, which I cannot go into; there are various aspects
of this work which must be kept secret, for the time being
at least. They have a great work in salvaging, in helping
to restore the equilibrium of our planet, in particular
to nullify to some extent – within the karmic law – the
pollution of our planet. (Benjamin Creme, Share International, July/August
It is often to be observed that people do not always believe
the evidence of their own eyes. Hence the rejection of
many experiences which would have been valuable to them
as they search for meaning and purpose in their lives.
It is common, for example, that many disbelieve that they
have seen a UFO, as they are generally known, when all
evidence shows otherwise. People are loathe to embrace
the new and unknown, however much to do so it might be
to their benefit. In this way, they inhibit their awareness
For many years now, the craft emerging from our sister
planets have roamed our skies, done immeasurable service
on our behalf, and, from time to time, given ample and
inspiring evidence of their reality and presence. In ones
and twos and untold numbers, they have worked selflessly
to mitigate, within the karmic Law, the harmful results
of our foolishness and ignorance. Many on Earth have seen
them, have stood in awe and wonder at their obvious mastery
of space, and, fearful of ridicule, kept silence. Thus
the knowledge of their reality and the grateful understanding
of their purpose has been lost to men. Why should this
be so? Why should men reject that which is most to their
betterment to accept and understand?
There are several reasons why men behave so unreasonably
in this way. Chief among them is fear. The great numbing
fear of possible destruction lies deep within the human
psyche, ready to rise and condition all reactions, all
spontaneous gestures of hope and wonder. It has, alas,
always been so for many.
The governments and the media of most countries have failed
in their duty to educate and enlighten the masses. Much
is known by many governmental agencies and withheld from
the public. Above all, the harmlessness of the
UFO, even when known, is never affirmed. On the contrary,
everything concerning them, while wrapped in vague mystery,
is presented as threat.
People in positions of power and control know that if their
people knew the true nature of the UFO phenomenon, and
understood them to be envoys from civilizations far ahead
of ours, they would no longer accept, passive and mute,
the conditions of life on Earth. They would demand that
their leaders invite these aerial guests to land openly,
and to teach us how to live and achieve in the same fashion.
The time is not far off when this will be the case. The
time is coming when the true nature of life on planets
other than Earth will be common knowledge. When men will
begin to think of the Solar System as an interrelated whole,
the planets at various points in evolution, but all working
together to fulfil the Plan of the Solar Logos, and to
help and sustain each other on the way. (Benjamin Creme’s
Master, ‘The Path to the Sun’)
The work of the Space Brothers
Maitreya: “If you can teach a person the art of
Self-realization, whereby they can move freely in and out
of the mind, they will not need drugs.” Scientists
have already been taught by the Space Brothers how to use
the technology of light to dissolve drug habits by targeting
specific areas of the brain. These methods are already
being used in hospitals in China and Hong Kong where drug
addiction has become a massive problem. (Maitreya, Maitreya’s
Teachings – The Laws of Life)
Star Wars – American scientists have not given up
the “game of Star Wars”. They have realized
that the Russians have gone well beyond the technology
used in the Star Wars programme and are desperately trying
to catch up. They are attempting to create the technology
to control not only the planet but space itself. But the
Space Brothers are watching. “Scientists will not
be allowed to use technology to interfere with the laws
of creation. Their technology might have to be destroyed
because it could even interfere with the evolution of the
[Space] Brothers themselves.” (Maitreya, Maitreya’s
Teachings – The Laws of Life)
The science of the 21st century – Scientists are
being taught by the Space Brothers the art of producing
energy through light. The effects of the ozone problem
will disappear but the climatic changes that are under
way are still bound to take place. The days and nights
will be warmer across the globe. We shall see changes in
human behaviour as people spend more time resting and less
time working. They will enjoy more recreational activities.
The plant and animal kingdoms will also be affected, with
a number of species disappearing. We shall find that society
will think in global terms and policies will be developed
globally. People will draw closer together, learning to
share and live together in harmony. The scientists are
being taught how to materialize through the technology
of light, so that objects can be transmitted from one part
of the world to another. This technology – using
colour, sound and vibration – is the science of the
21st century. It will make society more prosperous and
happy. People will enjoy life more, many diseases will
be healed instantaneously. As the scientists learn to develop
the rays of light, they will be able to penetrate not only
the physical brain but the mind itself. Experiments are
already being successfully carried out in healing the mind,
particularly with people who have become addicted to drugs.
Basically, the rays dissolve the conditioning factors of
the mind which trap the personality. Many experiments with
the technology of light are being undertaken in Russia.
This is because the Space Brothers set up a community in
that country 15 years ago. Russia was chosen because it
was such a closed society, where commercial pressures did
not affect scientific research. Today, the Russians are
well ahead of the rest of the world in this field. That
is why Russia leads the way in calling for arms reductions.
(Maitreya, Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws
One of the major activities of the Space Brothers is to
neutralize the pollution with which we are destroying our
planet – caused in the main by nuclear radiation
which is pouring out from the nuclear powerhouses all over
the world. Every underground nuclear explosion also puts
into the air dust which is totally contaminated by nuclear
radiation with a half-life of thousands and thousands of
years. Within karmic limits they mop up as much radiation
and pollution as possible. They also go down into the oceans
and neutralize waste which we have dumped there and which
otherwise would kill off marine life and further poison
the planet. The planet is already polluted to a degree
which is now dangerous. Pollution is the greatest killer
of all diseases of humanity, and much of it is of nuclear
radiation. The advice of Maitreya and the Masters will
be to close down immediately all nuclear-fission power
stations in the world. They could be replaced tomorrow
with a safe, fusion process of nuclear power as an interim
measure before the coming Technology of Light. One of the
main factors in maintaining our eco-system is our Space
Brothers: we owe them an enormous debt. (Benjamin Creme, The
Maitreya will show you that the way to the stars is a feasible
journey of enlightenment. He will show that the units
of the one life manifest themselves throughout Cosmos;
that until now this knowledge has been withheld from
men but will provide a sure path for future generations
to follow. Much depends, therefore, on men’s response
to Maitreya’s guidance. Men have indeed the choice:
to remain as men stunted in the growth of their magnificence,
or to become what in Truth they are, veritable Gods.
Maitreya is sure that men will respond from their hearts,
and that He will guide them towards their Destiny. (Benjamin
Creme’s Master, from ‘The way to the stars’)
Unless one understands the reality of the etheric
levels of energy as finer, subtler, levels of matter, one
cannot begin to understand the UFO phenomenon, and one
cannot understand the creation of crop circles – because
they are all related. The crop circles are created by people,
mainly from Mars and Venus, with a few exceptions from
other planets. The vast majority of them are Martian, some
Venusian, and they are all over the world. (Benjamin Creme, Share

The democratic deficit
Interview with Noam Chomsky (Part One)
by Jason Francis
Noam Chomsky is professor emeritus at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts,
USA, where he teaches linguistics and philosophy. He
has received wide recognition for having revolutionized
modern linguistics and has been awarded, among other
honors, the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award
of the American Psychological Association and the Benjamin
Franklin Medal in Computer and Cognitive Science. Also
internationally acclaimed as a scholar on such subjects
as politics and foreign policy, he has written many bestselling
political books, including Hegemony or Survival:
America’s Quest for Global Dominance (2003), Failed
States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy (2007)
and Interventions (2007). Noam Chomsky
was interviewed for Share International by
Share International: How would you describe the relationship
existing between large corporations and national governments?
Noam Chomsky: As a very broad generalization, you could
almost say that governments are agencies of big corporations.
Just look at who staffs the executive suites, or the enormous
effect of economic decisions on setting parameters for
government decisions. On the other hand, there are very
interesting cases of conflict between state and corporate
interests even when the state is pretty much controlled
by the corporations.
In fact, we are in the middle of one such corporate-state
conflict right now. The Bush administration is almost an
offshoot of the energy corporations. There is a very close
relationship. On the other hand, the policies of the Bush
administration are opposed by the energy corporations.
For a long time Iran has been a dramatic example of conflict
between state interests and the interests of the energy
corporations, even though the state is very much under
the control of the energy corporations.
This goes back to the overthrow of the Iranian parliamentary
regime in 1953. At that point the Eisenhower administration
was also heavily in the pocket of energy corporations.
The US government wanted US energy corporations to take
over 40 per cent of the British oil concession in Iran
(Britain had the whole concession at the time) but the
US corporations didn't want to do it. For short term interests
it was a lot more profitable for them to lift oil from
Saudi Arabia than from Iran. For ordinary business interests,
they didn't want to enter into conflict with the Saudis.
But the US government forced them to by threatening antitrust
suits and other measures, and the corporations had to go
along. That same dynamic is happening again now.
I'm sure if you went to the offices of Exxon Mobil and
others, they would be quite happy to invest in Iran, which
could be very profitable for them, but the government won't
allow them to do it, even though the Bush/Cheney administration
is very much in the pocket of the energy corporations.
An individual might make different decisions as chair of
Exxon Mobil, than as US Secretary of State, because there
are somewhat different interests involved.
Typically, the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of a corporation
is interested, to a large extent, in short-term profit
and market share, but that same individual as Secretary
of State has in view the overall interests of the corporate
system in the longer term and that leads to different decisions.
So the relationship between large corporations and national
governments is very intimate and undoubtedly the state
authorities are very heavily influenced by corporate power,
but there are interesting cases of conflict.
Cuba is another example: substantial parts of the business
world, including oil companies, would be quite interested
in ending the US embargo of Cuba, but the government won’t
allow it. George Bush comes straight out of a Texas oil
background and would not allow Texas oil companies to co-operate
with Cuba in developing offshore oil. It would be very
profitable for the oil companies. In fact that conflict
reached a rather dramatic confrontation in Mexico City
about a year or so ago. There was a meeting there of
oil executives with Cuban energy administrators, trying
to work out plans for US oil corporations, Texas ones mainly,
to invest in offshore Cuban oil, which apparently is fairly
substantial. The Bush administration discovered the meeting
was taking place in a Sheraton Hotel, which is US owned,
and ordered the hotel to kick them all out, including Bush’s
golfing partners, and they had to do it. Mexico was pretty
upset about it. This is intervention in Mexican sovereignty,
yet there was nothing they could do about it. That’s
a striking case and there are others.
SI: What has been the overall cost of the relationship
existing between governments and corporations?
NC: The cost for the victims of the Third World is incalculable.
Take Guatemala, for example. The Eisenhower administration
overthrew the democratic government of Guatemala in 1954,
in substantial part because of the interests of multinational
companies. The costs for Guatemala since 1954 are literally
incalculable. Even now, after all these years, it is still
the most violent country in the region – tremendous
poverty, hundreds of thousands of people slaughtered. How
do you measure those costs? Guatemala was on its way to
becoming something like Costa Rica in the early 1950s but
the Eisenhower administration’s intervention, partially
influenced by the corporate structures, led to a disaster.
Let’s consider Chile as another example. There was
a large corporate interest in the case of overthrowing
President Salvadore Allende’s government. What happened
is often called the first 9/11. On 11 September 1973, the
US-backed military coup took place. If you translate what
happened to a US equivalence – comparing it to 9/11 – it’s
as if Al Qaeda had bombed the White House and killed the
President, completely overthrown the government, and instituted
a vicious dictatorship that killed 50,000-100,000 people,
tortured 700,000 and set up an international terrorist
center that was overthrowing governments all over the hemisphere.
It makes 11 September 2001 pale in comparison, but that’s
In Indonesia, again with the substantial influence of major
corporations eager to get their hands on the resources
of Indonesia, the US-backed military coup in 1965 within
a few months had killed hundreds of thousands of people
and left the country in the hands of a vicious dictator
with all sorts of atrocities to follow. You can continue
these examples over and over again. The costs have been
SI: Considering that the relationship between government
and business is creating humanitarian disasters and economic
disparity, and with the future of the entire planet threatened
by global warming, why are politicians and corporate
executives willing to engage in suicidal behavior, considering
that their own lives and futures depend on the safety
and health of the people and world they are jeopardizing?
NC: If you’re a corporate executive or an official
in a government that is very much under business influence,
your concern is with power, profit, privilege and wealth
in the short term future. On the other hand, you may be
a person who has grandchildren and you want them to live
in a livable world. When you go home, that may be what
you’re concerned about, but in the office that’s
not your job. Your job, as a CEO of a corporation, for
example, is to make sure that the bottom line looks good
in the next quarter. There’s very little long term
planning in the business system and there are reasons for
that. It’s almost an institutional imperative. We
don’t have a highly competitive system. It’s
an oligarchy in many ways, with some competition.
Take the leading civilian export – civilian aircraft.
There are basically two businesses in the world that are
major civilian aircraft producers: Boeing and Airbus. They
are in constant litigation, which is almost comical to
watch, over which one gets more government subsidies. They
both survive on massive government subsidies. They are,
of course, in competition, but let’s just suppose
they were real capitalist enterprises, not state capitalist
enterprises. Suppose that Airbus decided to put its resources
into producing highly energy efficient aircraft that would
be on line 20 years from now. Airbus wouldn’t be
around 20 years from now because Boeing would be putting
the same resources into selling airplanes next year. Therefore
Airbus couldn’t do it. These are things that cannot
be developed within market systems. And to the limited
extent that we have market systems, it discourages long
term planning, just for institutional reasons.
SI: How has the liberalization of our financial structures,
which was enacted in the early 1970s and referred to
as neoliberal capitalism, affected democracy?
NC: That was very well understood, even in the 1940s. The
post-war economic system, the so-called Bretton Woods system,
was worked out in detail by Britain and the United States.
One of the principles that they introduced was that governments
would have control over capital flow and that currencies
would be pretty much regulated within a narrow band. First,
they thought that would increase economic growth, which
turned out to be true for the longest period worldwide
in economic history. But there was another concern – democracy.
They understood very well that unless governments had the
capacity to control capital movements and currency rates
they simply would not be able to carry out popular social
democratic programs, no matter how much the population
supported them. The reasons are fairly straightforward.
They understood and discussed them.
If governments cannot control capital exchange rates, that
sets up what international economists sometimes call a “virtual
parliament” of investors and lenders who carry out
a moment-by-moment referendum on government policies. That
means the government faces a dual constituency – the
one constituency is its own population, the other constituency
is the virtual parliament. If the virtual parliament decides
that some government policy is what they call ‘irrational’,
meaning it may help the population but harms profit, they
can prevent it by capital flight, attacks on currency and
other measures that the government is powerless to prevent
unless it has the kinds of built-in conditions established
by the Bretton Woods system. When those conditions were
dismantled in the 1970s we got the predicted results: a
major harm to economic development and an attack on democracy.
SI: How is electoral democracy fairing in the United
NC: What’s sometimes called the ‘democratic
deficit’, the failure of normal democratic institutions
to perform, is huge. Public opinion in the United States
is very carefully studied, a lot is known about it. It
turns out to be pretty consistent and internally coherent
over long periods. A book on this subject [The Foreign
Policy Disconnect] by Benjamin Page and Marshall Bouton
came out in 2006. Furthermore, it is well known that there’s
a huge gap between public opinion and public policy on
major domestic and international issues. In fact, on a
host of major issues, both political parties are well to
the right of the population.
In order to maintain political power under such a situation
you have to eliminate content from elections. Party managers
who run elections have to turn to the devices that in effect
come naturally to them. These are, after all, the same
public relations firms that try to sell you toothpaste
and lifestyle drugs on television. We know how it works.
When you look at a television ad for a lifestyle drug,
for example, you see a professional football player or
sexy actress who says: “It’s good for A. Ask
your doctor if it’s good for you.” They don’t
give you information. You’ll get an ad for an automobile
but there’s not much information about the automobile.
They’ll try to delude you with imagery. That’s
a device for undermining markets. Business does not like
markets; it wants control. It doesn’t want markets
with informed consumers making rational choices.
The same institutions are running electoral campaigns,
and they want to sell candidates. That’s the commodity
they’re selling. They don’t want to provide
information about them any more than General Motors wants
to provide information about its cars. They want to delude
the voters with imagery and rhetoric. You try to sell George
Bush in the last election, for example, not on the basis
of his policies (that will never work), but on the basis
that he looks like a nice ordinary guy. He mispronounces
words just like we ordinary guys do, and I would like to
meet him at a barbeque, and so on. You end up with people
voting for him who oppose his policies and may not even
know that fact. Very few Bush voters knew what his policies
were. A majority of Bush voters thought he was in favour
of the Kyoto Protocol, because they were.
That’s very much like selling toothpaste or lifestyle
drugs on television. Increasingly, that’s the way
elections have to work when you have this enormous democratic
deficit gap between public opinion and policy. It’s
a natural development in a business-run society with high
concentrations of capital and a very atomized, disorganized
public. We don’t have political parties in a very
meaningful sense. Our political parties are candidate-producing
machines. They’re not institutions that people participate
in except marginally. Policies are not formulated programs
by constituencies – maybe marginally, but not much.
The public is atomized, separated from one another, subjected
to enormous propaganda from the public relations industry
and media, so you end up with this democratic deficit.
George Adamski – a herald for the Space Brothers
by Gerard Aartsen
“It was about 12.30 in the noon hour on Thursday
20 November 1952, that I first made personal contact
with a man from another world. He came to Earth in his
spacecraft, a flying saucer. He called it a Scout Ship.”
No lines in any of the multitude of books that have been
written about UFO encounters are more famous or more disputed.
They are the first lines of the chapter in Flying Saucers
Have Landed in which George Adamski relates his meeting
with “a human being from another world” near
Desert Center, Arizona. Adamski’s claims were substantiated
by six witnesses, who were with him that day and who signed
affidavits sworn before notaries public. In the preface
to his first book, The Reappearance of the Christ and
the Masters of Wisdom, Benjamin Creme states that
Adamski’s descriptions of the Space Brothers are
very accurate, and that he could “vouch for the authenticity
of his contacts” from his own experience.
Flying Saucers Have Landed became an overnight sensation when it was
published simultaneously in the UK and the USA in September 1953: by December
of that year it had been reprinted six times and the USA it’s 12th reprint
took place three years later. It was followed in 1955 by Adamski’s personal
account of his experience inside a mothership manned by Masters from Venus,
titled Inside the Space Ships. In this book, he also writes about
his discussions with several of the Space Brothers who he refers to by names
that he chose himself. Adamski explains: “While I want to make it very
clear that the names I am introducing for these new friends are not their
correct names, I wish to add that I have my own good reasons for choosing them,
and that they are not without meaning … The Martian I shall call Firkon.
The Saturnian is Ramu. My name for the Venusian will be Orthon.” A female
Venusian is referred to as Kalna and the names he uses for other Spacemen are
Ilmuth and Zuhl. Of these experiences Benjamin Creme has said: “The only
thing he omitted to say (he was probably unaware of the fact) was that he was
out of the body during the whole experience.” (Share International May
George Adamski has been confirmed to be a 2.0 degree initiate
by Benjamin Creme’s Master. Although much has been
written about him since he published his personal experiences,
very little of it involved much open-mindedness, and even
today the internet is rife with theories, accusations,
derogative comments, half-truths and lies about the person
who is considered to be the first modern ‘contactee’ of
Space Brothers. Especially since modern science ‘established’ that
there is no possibility for life on our neighbouring planets,
very few authors deemed Adamski and his story worthy of
serious investigation after his death on 23 April 1965,
Co-author of Flying Saucers Have Landed Desmond
Leslie always believed in and trusted Adamski’s sincerity.
In his obituary for the July/August 1965 issue of Flying
Saucer Review, Mr Leslie wrote: “We shall miss
George. Miss him very much, but I cannot feel sad at his
going. He gave his utmost to the work and the world will
never be quite the same place again, richer for his coming,
a little poorer for his going. But, I don’t believe
by any means we have seen the last of him. If he is reborn
on another planet, he has promised to come back and contact
us when possible. With George anything could happen. And
usually does! Dear Old Space Man – Go in Peace!”
Of all the claims of people having met occupants of flying
saucers in the wake of Adamski’s story, one stands
out for its curious details. Having become the centre of
attention for the local media and the British UFO community
after reporting a UFO sighting on 7 June 1965 near Scorriton,
Devon, UK, Ernest Arthur Bryant confessed to investigators
that he had already met three “Beings from Space” on
24 April that year, who also gave him a conducted tour
of their craft. Mr Bryant further revealed that one of
the three had said “My name is Yamski” or something
that sounded very similar, while also speaking of a ‘Des’ or ‘Les’.
The background and details of this incredible story were
described in The Scoriton Mystery – Did Adamski
Return?, which further gained in significance when
it was found that Mr Bryant had had no prior interest in
the UFO phenomenon and had not heard of George Adamski
before his experience.
Another remarkable encounter in the same vein was described
by Giorgio Dibitonto in his book Angels in Starships,
first published in Italian in 1983. In it he describes
how, in April 1980, he saw visions of a beautiful young
man who directed him to drive into the hills around Genova.
He was led into a clearing in a wooded valley where he
saw a UFO that had landed and was contacted by the occupants.
He had regular contacts after his first encounter and on
one such he was introduced to Space Brothers who called
themselves Orthon and Firkon, the same names that George
Adamski used for the Space Brothers in Inside the Space
Ships. Then the author was introduced to another man,
by the name of George – an unusual name among Space
Brothers. “This, our brother, lived for a while on
Earth, where he chose to come on an assignment. Now he
has returned to us.” Kalma, Ilmuth and Zuhl also
join the party in Mr Dibitonto’s description.
While the events described in The Scoriton Mystery sound
unlikely enough, it is even more tempting to dismiss Mr
Dibitonto’s story as the fantasy of a man seeking
publicity based on the famous story of George Adamski.
Although the latter wrote of the unusual beauty, serenity
and wisdom of the Space Brothers he met, he never referred
to them as “angels”, as Mr Dibitonto does,
whose main contact is called Raphael and whose story is
infused with strong Roman Catholic references and warnings.
One could be forgiven then, for consigning the notion of
George Adamski having been “Their man on Earth” to
the dustbin – at least, until we read the account
of the meeting that the publisher of Angels in Starships,
former USAF fighter pilot Wendell C Stevens, had with Benjamin
Creme in May 1990. In the preface to Angels in Starships he
writes: “Mr Creme affirmed that George Adamski's
contacts were real and that some of them took place in
dense physical reality, just as described by Adamski himself.
To a question about Adamski's contactors saying they came
from Venus, Mr Creme readily replied that it was true.
In fact, he added the information that there were many
Venusians among us then, and even today, and that George
Adamski was a Venusian spirit who had taken incarnation
here for a very specific purpose, which he had fulfilled
before leaving this realm in death of the physical body.
According to Creme, Adamski continued in his Venusian ‘light-body’ after
that, which does support the Scoriton story.”
This, however, does not cover the extent of the mystery
that was George Adamski’s life. Adamski was born
in April 1891 in Poland. His father was a poor carpenter
who emigrated to America not long after George’s
birth. In her book George Adamski – The Untold
Story, Adamski’s former co-worker in Switzerland
Lou Zinsstag references an early biographical detail which
states that after a short period of formal schooling, Adamski “was
taught by private tuition”. As his parents were poor
and his father died when George was still a child, Mrs
Zinsstag wonders how his mother could have afforded a private
tutor at all. She continues: “I suspect that the
young boy must have enjoyed private tuition by a teacher
or guide, connected with a group in Tibet, as he subsequently
founded the ‘Royal Order of Tibet’, and the
monastery at Laguna Beach, California in the Thirties.”
Her suspicion is seconded by author Henry Dohan, who claims
to have had access to Adamski’s private archives.
He writes that, while en route to Dunkirk, New York, the
Adamski party was befriended by “a tall man with
dark features” referred to as “Uncle Sid”.
The stranger spent “many hours in the company of
young George throughout the voyage” and eventually
became a friend of the family after they had settled into
their new home.
In his book about the early UFO contactees, titled The
Pawn of His Creator, Mr Dohan also writes that after
the death of George’s father, Uncle Sid effectively
took over the paternal responsibilities. What’s more: “When
George became fourteen, his benevolent uncle offered sponsorship
of his further education” and suggested “sending
George to Tibet to a monastery of Lamas”. The number
of years Adamski spent in Tibet varies, depending on the
source, from around four to six years. Here he learnt “to
master the four elements”, was taught the spirituality
of the East and practiced meditation.
In 1936, 10 years before he first sighted a flying saucer,
George Adamski published his first book, containing a collection
of questions to answers from his audiences as a self-described “wandering
teacher”, titled Wisdom of the Masters of the
Far East. The teachings in this booklet cover most
of the basic tenets of the Ageless Wisdom teaching, which
Adamski referred to as Universal Law and later, after his
mission as witness of the existence of extraterrestrial
civilizations had begun, as Cosmic Philosophy, which was
also the title of his last book, published in 1961.
Mystery, controversy and apparent contradictions surround
the lives of many initiates. But the best testimony to
a man’s character, if not his stature, is when his
actions reflect his words. In Adamski’s case, that
is not difficult to establish when we compare his motto,
as expressed in one of his lectures, with his life: “My
advice to you is to help as many as you can – the
greater the number you serve, the greater will be the understanding
of yourself. This should be the motive of everyone who
desires to fulfill the destiny for which he was born.” Undeterred
by intimidation and undistracted by the fleeting riches
of fame and money, George Adamski fulfilled his mission
as the herald of the Space Brothers, broadening the horizon
of many an Earthling.

Benjamin Creme answers questions on George Adamski
Q. In his foreword to the English edition of Giorgio
Dibitonto’s book Angels in Starships (1990),
former USAF fighter pilot and publisher Wendelle C. Stevens
writes that Benjamin Creme told him during a meeting
in 1990 that George Adamski was in fact a Venusian who
had taken incarnation on Earth for a specific purpose.
Is it true that Adamski had Venusian origins?
Q. Author Mr Dibitonto claims that he was taken on
board a spaceship by his alien contact, Raphael, who
introduced him to Orthon and Firkon (alien contacts of
George Adamski’s) and a Space Brother named George
who, according to Raphael “lived for a while on
Earth, where he chose to come on an assignment.” (a)
Were Mr Dibitonto’s experiences real or imagined?
(b) Was the Space Brother he met the same as the one
we know as George Adamski? (c) Did he indeed meet Mr
Adamski’s alien contacts known as Orthon and Firkon?
A. (a) Real, but out of the body. (b) The same being. (c)
Q. In 1965 an Englishman named Arthur Bryant, with
no previous interest in UFOs, saw a UFO land near Scoriton,
Devon, UK, and was contacted by a Venusian who called
himself ‘Yamski’. Was this in fact the individual
who had died as George Adamski a day earlier, as UFO
researchers came to believe? (This story is recounted
in Eileen Buckle’s 1967 book The Scoriton
Mystery – Did Adamski Return?)
Q. In his book The Pawn of his Creator (1995),
Henry Dohan writes that George Adamski was prepared,
under the guidance of an initiate, for his future mission
as a witness of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations.
As Adamski’s father had died when he was still
a child he was taken under the wings of a friend of the
family whom Adamski referred to as “uncle Sid” and
who arranged for him to go to Tibet as a teenager to
study with the Masters. (a) Was “uncle Sid” a
Space Brother or an initiate? (b) Did Adamski indeed
go to Tibet for several years to study with the Masters?
A. (a) Both. (b) Yes.
Q. The poetic quality, the rhythm and the colour‚ of
the Prelude in George Adamski’s last book, Cosmic
Philosophy (1961), seem to me reminiscent of
the writing of a Master. (a) Did this Prelude, entitled ‘The
Magnificent Perception’, and/or other parts of
this book indeed originate from a higher source? (b)
Was it perhaps inspired by the Venusian Master Whose
teachings Adamski recorded in his book Inside
the Space Ships?
A. (a) Yes. (b) Yes.
Passages from George Adamski (1961), Cosmic
“It is a man’s duty to be a happy child in
his Father’s house, and to do this he will have to
be aware of the house. He must be aware that he is now
in the heaven that he is seeking to enter and that within
his form of self is the ever-present all-inclusive intelligence.
Here lies the answer to the question as to the constant
urge in the heart of every human to know more about the
composition of forms as well as the cause and purpose of
action, for it is the Cause Parent impressing the effective
child to know more about the vast possibilities so that
he may enjoy all that the Father has to give.”
Passages from George Adamski (1936), Wisdom
of the Masters of the Far East (aka “Questions
and Answers by the Royal Order of Tibet”):
“What law do the Masters use?
The Masters use the law of Love, which unites all in oneness.
They do not resist anything, but take it into the love
of the universe, separating nothing from the all, from
the lowest to the highest. Love is the Cosmic secret
of the universe, if there were any secrets, but nothing
is hidden or kept apart in love, as it is all inclusive.”
“What is the Universe?
The Universe is the all in all – all planets of all
solar systems, all chemicals from the highest invisible
states to the lowest solidified forms, all vibrations,
all intelligence, all consciousness. Or in other words
the entirety of God in its various manifestations that
compose the perfect Whole.”
