perennial light of Truth
by the Master –, through Benjamin Creme, 5 September 2009
One day in the winter of 1875, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, one of the
founders of the Theosophical Society, made a vow: to spread by every
means in her power the teachings which she had received from several
Masters of the Himalayan Lodge of the Spiritual Hierarchy of our planet.
True to her vow, she set to work to inform the world of these teachings.
Her books, The Secret Doctrine, Isis Unveiled and The Key to Theosophy,
are testimony to her indefatigable industry and will, in the face of
great physical illness. These seminal works have informed and inspired
many thousands of true seekers over the years and continue to do so.
The general reception of these precious insights was altogether
different: seldom have the work and gifts of a great initiate
been so denigrated and ridiculed, especially by the religious and scientific
communities of the day. Even now, after a hundred and thirty
five or so years, Blavatsky is regularly dismissed as a charlatan, a
spiritual medium and a “dishonest faker”. So vehement and so worldwide
was this condemnation that much of this negativity still clings to her
name. And, to Theosophy itself.
Madame Blavatsky was 4.0 degrees initiate, almost a Master,
equal in level to the Disciple Jesus and close to that of the
great Leonardo da Vinci. How is it is possible that such a distinguished
Toiler for the Good could be so maligned? Jesus himself is a prime example
of how ignorance and fear can dominate the perceptions of men.
Even while overshadowed by Maitreya the Christ, Jesus was made to suffer
from these twin attributes of thoughtless men.
Today the world is grappling with many problems and, predictably,
schisms have arisen in assessing these problems and in overcoming
them. Men and women everywhere have different qualities of mind and
brain, of openness or otherwise to ideas new and unfamiliar. They also
stand at different points on a ladder of evolution and from near the
bottom of the ladder the work and insights of many of those above them
mean little or naught. Thus has it always been.
From now on, however, this age-old problem will be ameliorated
to the benefit of all. The presence of Maitreya and a growing
number of His group of Masters will bring to humanity a great
Much of the simpler levels of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings
will be placed before the world as a whole, drawing more and more of
the general public into Theosophy and its teachings. This will help
to prepare large numbers to stand before the Initiator and to enter
consciously into the Light.
In this way, many men and women, taking advantage of this new
situation, will prosper greatly on their journey of evolution.
When Maitreya steps forward, this process will begin. More and more,
as they respond to Him, they will find growing within themselves an
appetite for the truth, and a longing for wisdom and light.

Q. (1) Apart from the Observatory of Malta, are there
other scientific institutions aware of the presence of the ‘star’? (2)
Which is the best way of accelerating the public awareness of the ‘star’
and its significance? (3) Are any countries more aware of the ‘star’
than others? Many UFO groups detect large spaceships but are not aware
of their meaning.
A. (1) I cannot believe that serious workers in the world’s
observatories have not seen the ‘star’ — they must have taken note of
it, but not understanding its significance, they probably dismissed it.
Whenever someone unacquainted with astronomy contacts such a professional
body they are fobbed off with remarks like, it was probably Jupiter or
Venus, or some other planet in our system. They dismiss, a priori,
the possibility of finding something new, like Maitreya’s ‘star’. Ordinary
people are upstaged by this response and believe the astronomers. This
of course is true of media as well, who need some professional person
in astronomy to admit the existence of the ‘star’. However, there was
good footage of the ‘star’ on Japanese Fuji Television [17 July 2009]
for 1 minute 47 seconds of the ‘star’ doing its ‘tricks’ twirling round,
moving, changing colour and size. (2) a: Talk about it. b: Photograph
it if possible and send the photographs to local media and/or Share
International. (3) No.
Q. I am confused about the connection
between Maitreya and beings from other planets, e.g.
the large spaceships that are appearing as the ‘star’.
What is the connection between Maitreya and these Beings?
Why would they be involved in His coming?
are all part of one unitary solar system. The public
may not generally know about, or believe in, the reality
of life on other planets of our system but the Hierarchies
of all the planets are in contact. There is indeed a
kind of Interplanetary Parliament representing all the
planets. The Space Brothers are here to help the people
of Earth to overcome the difficulties which our own ignorance
has brought about and to work with Maitreya, and our
Spiritual Hierarchy as a whole, in the work of salvage.
It is a spiritual mission.
Q. I have been working with the image
of Maitreya’s ‘hand’ by simply looking at it. I feel
all kinds of healings going on. At the moment I also
seem to see the image of a man’s face within the hand,
roughly below the last two fingers. (1) Is this a guide
working with me, or (2) just my imagination?
A. (1) No. (2) Just imagination. The energies come from
Q. Pope Benedict claims that bones found
in Rome in June 2009 belong to St Peter. (1) Are they
indeed St Peter’s bones? (2) If not, who did they belong
A. (1) My information is that this is not the case. (2)
Q. I attended several of Benjamin Creme’s
lecture meetings at Friends Meeting House, in Euston,
London, between 1985 and 1987. I believe the overshadowing
of Benjamin Creme to be totally genuine; however, the
statement about the emergence of the Lord Maitreya, in
the way it is described, is somewhat premature. A thousand
years from today, would be more accurate. These times
are too turbulent surely? I have waited for so long,
so very, very, very, very long, and I mean trans-incarnationally,
from lifetime to lifetime, to see the re-emergence of
something like we had in the Golden Age of Atlantis;
the city of the Golden Gates, in more ways than one;
the spiritual core of that city, scanning consciously
the spiritual horizons from age to age, incarnation to
incarnation, waiting patiently. Suffering the frozen
wastes of the Ice Age after the destruction of the last
remnant of Atlantis, looking forward to this time of
a new re-kindling of a civilization of sorts. This 20th/21st
century time frame although critical does not seem totally
right for the emergence of the Lord Maitreya. I wish
A. To my mind this is only one of many (erroneous) views
of the coming of Maitreya and His group of Masters: the
externalization of the Spiritual Hierarchy. No one should
know better the actual timing of this event than the Masters
Themselves. One of them, the Master Djwhal Khul, in the
Alice Bailey teachings, gave the hope and possibility of
the Christ’s return around the middle of last century,
that is around 1950, or failing that, towards the end of
the 20th century. My information has been that Maitreya,
the Master of all the Masters, descended from His mountain
in the Himalayas in July 1977 and entered London (His point
of focus in the modern world) on 19 July 1977, very close
to the prediction from the Master DK already published
in The Reappearance of the Christ by Alice Bailey
Q. It is said by many learned people
that the ‘swine flu’ is being genetically engineered
intentionally by a pharmaceutical agency or indeed agencies
as another means of attempting to de-populate the Earth’s
human species. This information has come from a very
elevated medical practitioner who is the head of the
world health federation, who also says that people should
not accept the vaccination due to it being none other
than waste product, as another means of destroying the
best part of humanity. Is there any truth at all in this
A. No, none whatsoever. That does not mean that the vaccine
is totally harmless.
Q. Hulda Clark, an Australian doctor,
states that an excess of micro-organisms (viruses, bacteria,
fungi) in the human body, in addition to toxic substances
and metals, weakens the immune system, inducing numerous
diseases such as chronic fatigue, cancer, AIDS, and so
on. She had experimented using an electronic machine,
whose frequencies kill those pathogens. With an appropriate
diet, intestine cleaning and other prescriptions, she
obtains very good results in cases of cancer, AIDS and
other diseases. Could this medical proposal help people
with this kind of disease, taking into consideration
the Karmic Law?
A. Yes it could, if correctly prescribed and the diagnosis
was correct. The whole of humanity is under threat from
Q. The Nazarene Healing Centre in Coin,
Malaga, Spain, is well-known for performing spiritual
psychic surgery, working on the patient’s etheric body
in order to heal them. Some of the operations have impressive
results. Vibhuti from Sai Baba is often used to heal
the wounds. There are many photographs of both healers,
Esteban Molina and Stephen Turoff, in which one can see
the energies involved in the process. The healers state
that they work with a medical team from the 6th astral
plane, composed of around 17 specialists that perform
the healings ‘using’ the bodies of Esteban and Stephen.
They also claim that they are ‘informed’ that the healing
energies come from the Master Jesus, Sai Baba and the
Master Who was the Madonna.
(1) Could you confirm if it is true that doctors from
the astral plane work through the healers? (2) Are the
Master Jesus, Sai Baba and the Master Who was the Madonna
involved in the healing process? (3) The water from a well
used in the Centre is said to have healing properties.
Is that correct?
A. (1) Yes. (2) They give Their energy when called upon.
Q. In Jules Verne’s Journey to
the Centre of the Earth, he describes
the existence of underground human beings’ communities,
some uncivilized and aggressive, and others with an
advanced level of development. Recently, some books
of Trigueirinho describe the existence of an underground
human civilization. (1) Is there an underground human
civilization on Earth? (2) Are there underground human
civilizations in other planets of the Solar System?
(3) If yes, in which one?
A. (1) My information is that this is not so. ( (2) Yes.
(3) Not given.
Q. If a nuclear reactor is built, but
never operational (ie never turned on) (1) can it still
pose a threat of polluting the environment and atmosphere?
Likewise, (2) if a reactor is shut down, can it still
pose a threat if idle or during the dismantling process?
(3) If so, how serious a threat would it be?
A. (1) Yes. (2) Yes. (3) It depends on the skill in handling
Q. In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, water at
the church N’toto Maria is believed to have healing powers.
Has water at the site been magnetized and if so by whom?
A. Yes, by the Master Jesus.
Q. I just watched a television programme
about honey bees dying off – which is quite troubling
– what does Maitreya have to say about this? What is
causing it and what can be done to save the bees? Without
them we are goners.
A. Maitreya has not, so far
as I know, addressed the question of bees, which are
indeed dying worldwide, mainly as a result of our use
(misuse) of pesticides and the change of habitat produced
by global warming. The answer lies within our hands:
reform our agricultural practices and stop using the
earth as a dumping ground for our noxious gases.
Q. Is there a group of men controlling the events of
the world? Their aim being the enslavement of the peoples
of the world.
A. No. This is one of dozens of scaremongering
‘conspiracy theories’ streaming out, mainly from America
I’m sorry to say, and America as a whole, we have to admit,
is quite paranoid in relation to attacks from abroad. No
doubt there are small groups of men in many countries who
think up ways and means of controlling the world but it will
never happen; these are just neurotic dreams.
Heart to heart
On Tuesday 18 August 2009 I was preoccupied all day by the
news that a close friend and colleague was not expected
to live for long, in fact she was not expected to make
it through the night. I couldn’t concentrate on work at
the Share International office and after supper, had some
wine and took the bus home. Needing some fresh air I sat
on a bench outside my flat. I was basically feeling really
upset about my friend.
Then a stout man with blond hair and a beard
cycled up and asked if there was anywhere he could get a
coffee. It was already 11pm so I suggested the pub down the
road. His bike was painted all over with a jazzy design and
he seemed very jovial. He rode off to the pub and returned
5 minutes later with a glass of coca-cola. He had an accent
I couldn’t work out so I asked where he came from: “It is
too complicated to explain,” he said, and mentioned something
about Russia and other countries, all very quickly.
Then he asked me: “Are you a goth?” I was wearing a black
cardigan and leggings. I laughed and said no. Then he sat
down on the next bench. He was exuberant and entertaining
and his banter cheered me up.
He said he didn’t like to sleep and he’d often
cycle around looking at places late at night. Then he showed
me some photographs on his mobile phone: they were great
images. The first was a perfect illustration of a heart that
he told me he had drawn for a medical textbook. The rest
were unusual photographs of nature and cities – all very
interesting and beautiful.
I mentioned my friend and we talked about death
and re-incarnation and I spoke about Maitreya. He said he
knew about Benjamin Creme and his work and the Theosophical
Teachings. We chatted on for some time about the ‘star’ and
he spoke about trying to photograph it, possibly from inside
the church nearby.
Then, realizing it was getting late, I said
goodbye and got up from the bench. He watched as I walked
to my door, and we waved. I felt comforted and distracted
by our meeting and thought how strange life can be: sweet
things happen when you least expect them and we’re never
really alone. Please could I ask: was this jovial man a Master?
G.F. London, UK.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms the ‘jovial man’ was the Master Jesus.)
Two letters from the same person:
(1) On 4 September 2009 I was travelling to Transmission
Meditation in London. I was late and rushed hurriedly down
the escalators and caught the end carriage of the waiting
tube at Victoria and found a seat. A gothically-dressed
tramp was sitting opposite me facing the end of the carriage;
his dreadlocked hair had been slept on and was sticking
out at all angles and unusually he had pale cut-off shorts
over his black trousers.
Then followed a scenario of short events. His
hands were filthy and were holding a very cheap plastic egg-timer
with brightly-coloured tiny sweets inside. The little sweets
fell through the opening and with great delight he turned
the egg-timer over, balanced it on his knee and gesticulated
with his hands while turning around to everyone, nodding
and smiling with extraordinarily kind, crinkly, sea-green
eyes. He put it into a small orange plastic carrier bag which
was behind him and took out a small rectangular, labyrinth
game, but instead of silver balls, he was manoeuvering plastic
cars through the maze. Then he looked round very lovingly
at all the passengers. He put that away in the orange carrier
bag and rapidly brought out a white, paperback book at which
I caught my breath. It was entitled The Source of the
Heart; below the title was the sketch of a long-haired
Indian. I could not see the author’s name. He put it on his
knee and opened it to where several white origami shapes
were kept and took one out showing it to everyone saying
in a soft voice: “Boat, boat, boat.” The other passengers
shuffled uncomfortably, holding up their newspapers, trying
to avoid any contact with this ‘undesirable’. The next shape
was a bird, but he seemed to change his mind and the book
swiftly found its way into the little bag. He leaned over
to the adjoining seat and put the book into two large carrier
bags placed there, an orange and a blue, one inside the other
as these were carrying large heavy, glass bottles full of
soft drinks. He took out a well-tied, black, small carrier
bag whose contents he did not display, simply taking the
handles and tying knot after knot until he was satisfied,
then he stowed the black bag into the very bottom of the
larger carrier bags, nodded, looked smilingly back at me,
then leaned back in his seat and fell asleep. He gathered
his bags and left at the next station.
Was this a message for all the co-workers of Share International and
beyond and would you confirm if this was Maitreya?
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the man was Maitreya.)
(2) I was driving my two sisters home after
Transmission Meditation late one night when we had to stop
at a set of traffic lights. It was almost midnight and there
was a short Hispanic-looking man with curly black hair and
dark brown eyes washing car windscreens. My sister Annette
was unwell and was leaning back on a pillow, half-asleep
in the front seat. I leaned across her and rummaged in the
glove box for some loose change. Just as the window cleaner
approached our car, the lights changed, so I gave him what
I had, preparing to drive on.
“But that is too much!” he protested, but it
was very little so I asked him to keep it. Suddenly, the
lights were red again. He approached the rear of the car
and began to wash the back window while singing a melody.
He had a rich voice. “He is singing even at this late hour!”
I was surprised.
My other sister Josie was sitting in the back and I asked
her to pass my bag. She dived under one of the seats and
retrieved my wallet, so I was able to give him a bit more
change. He had washed the front by this time. “You ‘ave good
‘earts.” He beamed at the three of us, his white teeth
twinkling in the city lights. The traffic lights changed
to green and off we sped into the dark, laughing, our spirits
uplifted. Would you kindly tell us if he was a Master?
S. P., Ashurst Wood, West Sussex, UK.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms the ‘window cleaner’ was Maitreya.)
I was recently sitting in my room saying ‘The Great Invocation’
in Finnish. I felt very calm and peaceful. When I left
my position and went to the kitchen, I saw, or I think
I saw, a handprint on the oven glass-wall. I felt incredible
peace and safety, but when I checked up close the handprint
faded away. The feeling was inhumanly comfortable. What
could this be?
J.H., Helsinki, Finland.
(Benjamin Creme: The handprint of Maitreya, since its first appearance
in Barcelona in August 2001, has appeared in many countries in different circumstances.
This is the first instance (reported to Share International)
in which the ‘hand’ disappeared more or less as soon as it was seen but it
was the handprint of Maitreya nevertheless – a temporary miracle.)
On 21 November 2008, I attended a conference in Lyon (France)
during which the audience was shown a heart-shaped agate
gemstone found in Uruguay by a miner’s son about 40 years
ago. When it was discovered, the stone broke in half revealing
an inscription: a ‘J’, a ‘C’ as well as other letters,
in very luminous crystals against a background of smooth
agate. The inside of the heart replicates exactly the shape
of a human heart.
When the miner’s son discovered the heart-shaped
stone, he signed away his inheritance of the land and the
house, and has since devoted himself entirely to the service
of the heart stone, lending it to people who need it. The
large audience (more than a hundred people) was extremely meditative and the energy generated by the heart-shaped stone
– that we were able to hold in our hands for a few minutes
– was intense: I was able to feel it several centimetres
away and my stomach pains soothed.
A person in the audience took a photo of myself
holding the stone. The developed photo showed a column of
light (see photo). Was it a blessing from Maitreya? What
do the inscriptions inside the heart mean? Is this heart-shaped
stone of divine origin and what is its purpose?
G.J., Lyon, France.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms the gemstone was a blessing from Maitreya
and its purpose is to help and heal people.)

We present a selection of quotations on the theme of Truth
from Maitreya (Messages from Maitreya the Christ,
and Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws of Life), Benjamin
Creme’s Master (A Master Speaks and Share
International), and Benjamin Creme’s writings.
My purpose is to show man that he need fear no more, that all
of Light and Truth rests within his heart, that when this simple fact is known,
man will become God. God’s nature is to love. God’s purpose is to serve. God
is known through Sharing and Justice. Spread abroad these simple Truths, My
friends, and perform a mighty act. (Maitreya, from Message No. 98)
The world is awakening to the truth of man’s existence: Man is
divine, the outer expression of his true reality as soul. Through all vicissitudes,
his soul has guarded him and shown him the path. Never has the soul been absent
from the fray, the high endeavour or the reluctant effort. Man and soul are
One. Such is the truth awaiting man’s discovery. The soul awaits this dawning
revelation. Man is at the end of his apprenticeship in life. The soul, from
now, directs a higher and a clearer path. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The
For myself, throughout the last 27 years of releasing the information
about the return of the Christ and Hierarchy, there has been one factor which
I have kept solid and above all: that what I say I believe from my experience to
be true. I cannot say what I do not believe to be true. I cannot say it with
conviction, so there is no point in saying it at all. When what you say is
true in itself and you say it with the conviction which personal experience
gives you, you are believed. If it is true, it has a power which only truth
itself has. If it is glamour, false, an illusion of truth, it does not have
that power. (Benjamin Creme, The Art of Co-operation)
The Christ, Maitreya, is poised to assume the role of Teacher
to a world longing for Truth. (Benjamin Creme’s Master from ‘The return of
The truth has many faces, but the main chord is within the individual.
The moment you feel Oneness, when you speak, the basic chord of truth sings
within. “Experience Me. Be what you are. The moment you try to be what you
are, you experience who you are, why you are. “People respond. But if you try
to twist the truth or to make money out of it, it becomes so distorted that
people begin to lose interest in it.” (Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws
Most people have both glamours and illusions. Illusions deal
with ideas, with mental thoughtforms. Everybody has them. The world’s mental
body, the mental plane, is filled with billions of thoughtforms – huge, small,
ever-growing, always changing. These are mental thoughtforms.
There are also astral/emotional thoughtforms; they involve rather the action
of the emotions. With emotional thoughtforms we experience a feeling, a sensation,
and we put a meaning on it. That meaning, if it is not true, is glamour. You
can only know it is glamour by the action of the mental body on it. Glamour
is overcome by the light of the soul playing on the glamour through the mental
body. The insight of the mental body has to be used to overcome the glamour.
The light of the soul, which is the intuition, has to be used to overcome the
mental thoughtforms which are illusions. They are either illusionary or they
are true. The truth is always there, you do not have to discover it. If you
have no glamour, you do not experience glamorous feelings; your feelings are
true. They are coming from the heart, not the solar plexus; they are not a
misuse of astral energy. If the ideas are true, they are coming from the soul
and are creative, revelatory, illuminating. If they are illusory, they are
false. It takes the intuition, the light of the soul, to show the falsity of
it. (Benjamin Creme, The Art of Living)
When you think one thing, say another, and do something which
is different again, you are lost. Honesty of mind leads to honest speech and
honest action. This harmony leads to peace and happiness. “Whether you are
a thief or a saint, you can begin right now.” (Maitreya’s Teachings – The
Laws of Life)
When men see the Christ and His Disciples, the Masters of Wisdom,
they will come to understand how needed are the many presentations of truth,
for they will come to realize how old is man, how varied his experience and
expectations down the ages, and how different are the ways in which men absorb
ideas. They will come to grasp, too, something of the inherent unity behind
the outer diversity.
Men will see for themselves that behind the ideas and teachings
stands a Plan; that every teaching is the formulation of but one fragment of
the Plan; that the Plan is the expression of the creative Will of God and as
such is in process of constant change. How then could one group, society, or
institution embody the Truth for all time?
… Seek that which unites in your brother’s presentation. Know
that behind all stands the Christ and His Disciples. Remember that the one
Truth informs all approaches and that naught divides but the minds of men.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The need for synthesis’)
My Masters know the problems which beset man today; the answers
likewise are in Their grasp. Allow Them to lead, My friends, and show you the
simple path of Joy, Simplicity and Truth. A new Law descends. The new Truth
becomes known to man. The Law is Love, The Truth, My friends, is Brotherhood.
My Mission will ensure that that Law and that Truth shall become manifest.
This I promise you and thus shall it be. (Maitreya, from Message No. 43)
Faith, to be sure, does not mean blind acceptance and belief.
On the contrary, true faith rises only when the intuition, the voice of the
soul, prompts an inner knowing, and, past all gainsaying, the heart tells you:
this is true. When that moment comes, clasp firmly to you this new-found truth
and “stay there”. When the voices of envy and doubt assail you, keep serenely
to your task. Remember that your mind belongs to you and no one has the right
to tell you what to think. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The Call to Service’)
Each teacher gives his teachings for a particular time and place.
Fundamentally, all the different teachings embody the one truth; they vary
only in emphasis and relevance for specific times, places and peoples. The
common denominator is their revelation of the Oneness of all life. (Benjamin
Creme, Maitreya’s Mission Volume One)
I am the Custodian of the Plan of God. I am the New Direction.
I am the Way for all men. I hold the Secrets of Old. I bestow Bliss. I create
the desire for Truth. I make all men One. I come to realise My Truth through
men. I am the Saviour of Old. I am the Teacher of the New. I am the Guide for
the Future Time. I am the Law embodied. I am Truth Itself. I am your Friend
and Brother. I am your Self. (Maitreya, from Message No. 70)
Any action you perform should be done according to these three
principles: honesty of mind, sincerity of spirit and detachment. Any action
performed with dishonesty of mind, an insincere spirit and attachment is destructive.
(Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws of Life)
... Maitreya will guide the thoughts of men towards the Truth
that He brings and is. Thus will Maitreya show men their errors and the solution
to their dilemma, and thus will men take stock of their situation and, in growing
numbers, realize the Truth of His advice. More and more, men will see that
Maitreya’s guidance is the only way to achieve the happiness and peace all
inwardly crave. Held back by fear until then, they will find in His simple
Teaching the answer to all their fears and woes.
Naturally, not all will find in Maitreya the guide they seek.
Many, indeed, will find in His Teaching, all that they fear and hate. Gradually,
however, the ardour of those who can respond and resonate to His simple words
of Truth will bring millions to His cause of Justice and Peace. His Teaching,
though simple, will penetrate the hearts of all those in whom love has not
yet been extinguished. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The Oneness of Humanity’)
When the mind is quiet, free from dogmatic views, it will absorb
the truth. “If you want to test the truth of anything, speak with a child.”
(Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws of Life )
Maitreya teaches the swamis around him: “I am with you. If people
have not attained to certain truths in life, give them these truths freely,
but do not claim them as your own.” “The same Light you came from exists in
the snake, in the mountain, in water, in fire, etc. If the same Light is common
to all these, how can you say ‘this’ is more important than ‘that’?”
Realization of this truth creates a sense of unity, of harmony.
“Since it is the same for every human being, if you come to know this truth,
will you then compare? Or try to dominate one another? You will not. Instead
you will respect one another.” (Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws of Life)
My Masters will serve you, too, will teach you to live together
in true brotherhood, in justice and harmony. Forget not, My brothers, that
you are One, that the Father of All has created you in His divine image, that
through you shines the same blessed light of Love and Truth.
The time is coming, My friends, when the Light of Truth shall
shine all around you, when man shall take his brother to his heart and know
him as himself. Let Me lead you, My friends, into that blessed state. Say yes
to My Advent. Say yea to My Coming, and be enfolded in the blessing of My Love.
(Maitreya, from Message No. 51)
People are afraid of becoming fanatical. The danger really is
not fanaticism but inertia. It is very difficult for groups who have not directly
experienced Maitreya to go on year after year maintaining a high degree of
activity around His appearance. It is true that Transmission Meditation and
your personal meditation help to sustain a high level of commitment. But it
does require faith. If you do not have faith, if it is simply hope and belief
that Maitreya is here, against all the odds, then you are working against the
grain. You have to know.
If you do not have a personal experience that Maitreya is real
and is here, then it must be difficult. But, again, there is more and more
evidence that He is here. The outer signs are growing every week so it becomes
easier than it ever was before to accept this as a hypothesis and work as if
it is true (which is all you can do in the first place). It is really a question
of addressing yourself to your self and saying: ‘‘What do I really want to
happen about this?’’ If this makes sense to you, if it has for you the ring
of truth (even though you do not know with utter certainty) and you take it
as a hypothesis and work on that hypothesis, the events themselves, the experience
itself, proves to you that this is true. You find the energy of Maitreya flowing
through you and there is no gainsaying that. (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya’s Mission Volume
Ancient habits of division and separation have strong roots,
while fear and superstition cast their spell over millions of mankind. But
never before, in the history of the world, has a Teacher come better equipped
for His task. Maitreya has come to do battle with ignorance and fear, division
and want. His weapons are spiritual understanding, knowledge and love; His
shining armour is Truth Itself. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The Son of
My Coming will transform this world, but the major work of restoration
must be done by you. I am the Architect, only, of the Plan. You, My friends
and brothers, are the willing builders of the Shining Temple of Truth. I shall
give you the Key of that Temple, and entering therein shall you know God. (Maitreya,
from Message No. 65)
The educational systems we need for humanity must be built on
the inner truth that man is a soul, manifesting on this plane as a personality.
Education must be geared to that truth and not to the cramming into children’s
minds of information which will fit them as cogs into an obsolete machine.
(Benjamin Creme, The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom)
Fortunately, naught can prevent the triumph of His cause, for
His cause and the needs of men are one. When men see this, they will rally
to His side and demand the changes which He advocates. Thus will be created
a spearhead armed with Truth, directed to the decaying heart of the old dispensation.
Many will see in Him the Saviour of Old; others will recognize in Him the Exponent
of the New. Whatever their stance, men will raise aloft His Banner: Truth and
Brotherhood; Justice and Peace. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘All will be
There are many today who admit the necessity for change, but
still resist it. There are many today who see the crumbling of the old and
outworn world of the past, but cling to the old forms. But there is a new voice
being heard among the nations: the voice of Truth, which contains the hope,
the promise, of the New Time. This voice will increasingly make its impress
on the minds of men, for it is the voice of God, speaking through men.
My Masters are with you and will show you the way; I Myself will
lead. Can it be that you will renounce this guidance, this opportunity to rise
and progress? No, My friends, I think not. I shall show you that the way for
man is the way of brotherhood, close co-operation and mutual trust and service.
This is the only way. All else has failed. My friends, unless man can do this,
man on this Earth will cease to be. I threaten not, but simply state the truth.
There is but little time left to restore the balance of nature and the world.
(Maitreya, from Message No. 12)
This shows how, from the point of view of Hierarchy looking at
the world, They see the glamours, They see reality. They see and know that
what we see is entirely different from the truth. The truth cannot be seen
by the soul because the personality does not allow the soul to see the truth.
We have hidden the truth.
We see the idea. Out of our false language, false education,
our ignorance, lack of understanding, we interpret according to the ‘norm’,
the academic line, the accepted understanding, whether that is political, religious
We accept the status quo, in other words. That is because we
are afraid to make changes. We are afraid to change so we do not see the need
for change. We cover the need for change, the reality which is there, the true
state of the world, the pain, the suffering, the insecurity of the world. I
do not mean only terrorism, but the insecurity of life, including, of course
today, terrorism, because we do not want to see it. It is too upsetting, too
frightening, and so we cover it over with illusion. We fill every fragment
of life with illusion.
We do it as groups, in political parties, as governments. They
all have their different ways of functioning with this trick of covering up
the truth. What is the answer? How can we get out of it? The Master DK says
only the intuition can overcome illusion. “It is in meditation and in the technique
of mind control, that the thinkers of the world will begin to rid the world
of illusion. Hence the increasing interest in meditation as the weight of the
world glamour is increasingly realized, and hence the vital necessity for right
understanding of the way of mind control.... Only the intuition can dispel
illusion, and hence the need for training intuitives.”
The intuition is the light of the soul, the buddhic level of
the soul working directly through the mind. When the mind is cleared of illusion,
the buddhi or intuition itself can manifest. When intuition or buddhi manifests,
it automatically clears the mind of the individual from all these illusions.
It is like cleaning house. One day you go into a house and see the cobwebs.
You have been in that house every day for years and you never saw that the
place is covered with cobwebs. One day when you notice the cobwebs you take
a brush and start to clear them.
The faculty we call intuition is the next level of the mind to be developed.
(Benjamin Creme, The Art of Living)
My friends, the Truth stands among you. The Truth is in your
hearts. The Truth, My friends, My brothers and sisters, is Love and Sharing,
Justice and Freedom. Make these manifest in your lives and communities, and
re-establish the Plan of God. (Maitreya, from Message No. 93)
Steadfastness is living from the spirit level of yourself, holding
the soul aspect of yourself in the forefront. I do not mean you go around all
the time saying, “I am a soul, I am a soul, I must remember, I am a soul.”
Not at all. Steadfastness is the continuous concentration of everything you
have on the highest light of truth that you have. For what you believe in,
rightly or wrongly, but what you believe in from wherever you are coming; the
focusing of all your attention and all your aspiration, and bringing the whole
of your available will power to bear on the furthering of that idea or ideal
or purpose or whatever it is. (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya’s Mission Volume
How can Maitreya touch the hearts of the millions needed to change
direction? The answer lies in the potency of His energies. Never before has
a Teacher of such power stood before the world. With each word uttered, His
beneficent force flows from heart to heart. Useless and unnecessary is argument
and debate. His Truth calls forth the Truth in the heart of the listener, and
in the crucible of their shared divinity is recognized as Truth Itself. (Benjamin
Creme’s Master, from ‘Man’s Divinity’)
When you see and hear Me, you will realize that you have known
for long the Truths which I utter. Within your hearts rests the Truth of God.
These simple Truths, My friends, underlie all existence. Sharing and Justice,
Brotherhood and Freedom are not new concepts. From the dawn of time mankind
has linked his aspiration to these beckoning stars. Now, My friends, shall
we anchor them in the world. (Maitreya, from Message No. 105)
During Benjamin Creme’s talk in San Francisco, USA, on 2
August 2009, he gave the following discourse on the Day of Declaration.
The Christ will point to the need of the world to see itself
as One. We are One world. We must make our world One, with war a thing of the
past. Then the Masters can help us. Then They can show us the way
to build the most wonderful civilization this earth has ever seen. This coming
civilization will be created by humanity – inspired, guided and led by the
Masters. We will have these men without fault living among us. Maitreya is
a man like us but without any fault whatsoever. He knows only total altruistic
love. He uses all His extraordinary intelligence, wisdom and love to help humanity
forward, to shield and protect us. When Maitreya says: “I am your shield”,
He means it absolutely concretely. The Masters and, above all, Maitreya, are
our shield – shielding us from suffering, from too great an evil in the world
which would submerge humanity. He is here to present to us an image of perfection
to which we can aspire.
Maitreya has given to the world all the signs – the milk miracle
, statues which move and open their eyes, paintings which weep real tears
– as signs that something tremendous is happening. There are thousands of miracles
all over the world so that Time magazine devoted
an eight-page spread to it [in April 1995]: “Something extraordinary is happening
in the world,” it said. That something is the Reappearance of the Christ and
the Masters of Wisdom in the world as our Elder Brothers.
Very soon now Maitreya will appear on television in this country
[USA] and later in Japan and then around the world and speak very simply so
that everyone can understand Him and when Maitreya talks you know it is true.
He speaks directly from the heart to the heart and that energy which comes
from being the embodiment of Love awakens that love in your heart and you believe
what He says because you know it is true. It is the only truth there is. It
has to be true. You feel it deeply within you. There’s no gainsaying that simple
message of trust, of hope, of sharing, of justice and of peace as a result.
When enough people are responding to Maitreya in this way He
will be asked to come on television and speak to the whole world – now known
to many as the Christ. Many will see Him and think: “I’m sure that is the man
Creme has been talking about.” The television networks will be linked together
for this event and “All eyes will see him” as it says in the Bible. You will
see His face – you will feel that energy – you will say: “Only the Christ could
fill my heart with that love”.
Maitreya is omniscient and omnipresent and one day all adult
people in the world will hear His voice inwardly. He will, for 25 minutes or
so, create this liaison, this telepathic rapport, between Him and us, and you
will know that what you are hearing is the truth.
One of the Masters has said: “People everywhere will become like
little children”, full of trust, full of love, full of goodness, full of hope,
full of aspiration with all that they have lost since growing up, before they
become hardened, become commercialized, made rigid, fearful, untrusting – only
half a man or half a woman. But as children they will feel this is true. “I
am part of the whole world.” They will feel connected to one another, as they
never have before, not since they were children. They will feel that union
that a child always feels if correctly brought up and it is never drilled out
of him or her. They will feel saintly, they will feel at their best, at their
most holy, as they never felt since they took first communion, if they did.
Not since they were little children and they believed what their parents said
and they knew their parents would look after them. Then they believed in God
and they knew that God would look after them. And then they knew about the
Pope and that he would look after them, but he didn’t and they got let down
and got hardened. They became disbelievers and began to lose their humanity.
They began to lose that thread that connects each person with every other person
in the whole of the universe on all planets and all systems. We are One. There
is only one humanity under the one God and we all share that humanity.
On the Day of Declaration as Maitreya’s energy of love pours
out to humanity this will evoke an outburst of our own love – we will feel
it, we will recognize it and see that this message is true. Everything that
is said is true. Our hearts will tell us this is the truth; it could not be
otherwise. So, we must share, we must live in right relationship, we must make
justice, must put war behind us, never discolour this earth again with war.
Maitreya will show us how old we are, for how long we have evolved
and from what a height we have fallen to this base materiality of today when
commercialization through market forces is squeezing the life-blood out of
humanity, in which people are suffering ignominy for no reason but that they
were born poor – who have no stake in life because they were born too poor.
Maitreya will also show humanity glimpses of the coming civilization
– the beautiful cities we shall have, the type of architecture now being planned
by Masters to be given to the world.
While this is going on there will be hundreds of thousands of
spontaneous healings. By the telepathic rapport and the overshadowing of the
minds and hearts of people everywhere, by the outflow of the Christ Principle,
the energy of love, and by the miraculous healings, you will know that that
One is the Christ. On the Day of Declaration you will know with absolute certainty
that the time of doubt is over. This is the time in which Christ takes His
place outwardly as the Head of Hierarchy, as the Eldest of all the Brothers
of humanity, to stand before us and to take us forward into that Kingdom of
which He is the Head – the Spiritual Kingdom which daily is growing out of
the human kingdom, as a man or woman here and there take initiation and gradually
evolve towards the light.
That day the Masters call the “Day of Days” will be a day without
precedence. There has never been a day like that. No one on Earth has experienced
what they will feel on that day. You will tell it to your children and they
will tell it to theirs; people will tell it to their children and so on for
generation and generation.
Maitreya comes to bring revelation upon revelation. He comes
to reveal the nature of the UFOs; the nature of our identity with God and a
new approach to God – not through belief but through knowledge, understanding
and evocation. We will come to evoke God and see that we are that which we
evoke. We will see how rich and worthwhile life has become just in one day.
That is the promise of the coming of the Christ for all people.
He comes for all people, religious and non-religious alike. He is not concerned
with whether you are religious or not. He is concerned with whether you love
your fellowmen or not. That is the measure.
He says: “Take your brother’s needs as the measure for your actions and solve
the problems of the world. There is no other course.”
The star that heralds Maitreya’s emergence
“In the very near future, people everywhere
will have the opportunity to witness an extraordinary and
significant sign, the like of which has been manifested
only once before, at the birth of Jesus. Then, according
to Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and
led three wise men from the East to the birthplace of Jesus.
Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of brilliant power
will be seen around the world.” (Benjamin Creme’s
Master, ‘Maitreya’s first interview’, SI Jan/Feb
On 12 December 2008 Share International distributed
a news release announcing that in the very near future a
large, bright star would appear in the sky visible throughout
the world, night and day, heralding the imminent appearance
of Maitreya in His first interview on a major US television
programme. Since early January 2009 sightings of the star
have been reported all over the world and hundreds of sightings
have been sent to Share International. We include
a selection of the latest reports from the media, Share
International readers, and sightings from YouTube. All
the photographs show genuine sightings confirmed by Benjamin
Creme’s Master to be the ‘star-like luminary’ heralding Maitreya’s
How to spot the ‘star’
“It behaves in a way no other celestial object does.”
— Benjamin Creme
• resides in our Earth’s atmosphere
• can move, spin, pulsate and blink
• can change size and shape (eg round, diamond, hexagonal)
• can change position in the sky
• can get closer, and recede, at speed
• is very bright and sometimes the only star visible
• can radiate bright colours, often in quick succession
• has been sighted day and night
• can respond to thought: has been known to appear and move
• several witnesses have even seen all four ‘stars’ together
• is seen all over the world.
Creme explains that the ‘star’ regularly recharges its
energy from the sun and is not always visible. Also note
that in cities high-rise buildings can obscure sightings
of the ‘star’, so keep watching.
‘Star’ seen on Japanese television
A ‘mysterious luminary object in the summer sky’ was recently
reported on nationwide Japanese television station.
On 17 July 2009, Japanese Fuji Television during its evening
Super News programme reported the story of a bright, moving,
star-like object and showed a video taken by a viewer, Mr
The witness Mrs Yanagisawa said that she and her husband
saw from their window a ‘mysterious luminary object’ in the
western sky above the trees. ‘It was emitting light, shining
brightly, changing colours, green, yellow, red and so on.
It was moving vertically, up and down, while spinning.’
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms the ‘mysterious luminous
object’ was the ‘star’.)

On 4 August 2009, during the closing minutes of the evening
programme on Radio 10 AM 710, Buenos Aires, Argentina,
someone raised the issue about a sighting of a strange
light in the sky. Several listeners called confirming that
they too had seen it. Was this light the ‘star’ heralding
S. M., Buenos Aires, Argentina.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the light was the ‘star’)
On Thursday 16 July 2009 at 11.30pm I was looking up at the
sky around my house and noticed a very bright twinkly star
low in the sky. In my mind I asked the star: “If you move
a tiny bit I will be more certain that you are really that
star-like luminary body”. To my great surprise the star
started to move very quickly from the south-west to the
east, from the front to the back yard of my house. To my
even greater amazement the star – looking brighter and
bigger – turned back to the front at a high speed and disappeared
behind the clouds. There was no noise or jetstream as with
a plane. This event took a few minutes. Was it a spacecraft?

On Sunday 30 August 2009in La Grande Motte sur Mer, south
of France, between 9.30pm and 10.30pm we saw what looked
like the ‘star’ above the sea to the right of the moon
in a south-westerly direction.
Between 11.15pm and 1.15am the star was to be seen left of
the moon in a south-easterly direction. It pulsated really
clearly, moved and changed colour (all sorts of colours,
in fact). Was this the ‘star’?
M.V., The Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)
I have been following your website for 12 years now and I
value it tremendously. Sometimes we hear something that
speaks from the heart and our souls know it is the truth.
That’s how I feel about the coming of Maitreya and the
information you put out. So thank you! There is a question
I would like to ask. Around 4am on 4 July 2009 in Delaware,
USA, I thought I saw the ‘star’. It was the only star up
in the sky and it was extremely bright and appeared to
be larger than normal. When I looked through binoculars
it appeared to be a lot of white circles and the whole
thing moved on its side and then on its back and then it
kept changing. (But I did not see colours, just white circled
lights.) Was this a UFO?
B. O., Wilmington, Delaware, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)
On 24 June 2009 after Transmission Meditation I was cycling
home. It was all cloudy. When I went over the Stone Bridge
I noticed a big, bright star below the clouds, moving slowly
from north to south.
It pulsated and looked like a fireball. The whole thing lasted
about five minutes. When I arrived home I telephoned a group
member living in Berlin and told him what I had seen. Five
minutes later he phoned back and told me that right after
our talk he went on his balcony with his wife and son and
they all noticed the same thing in the sky: a bright star,
moving, and looking like a fireball. Was it the ‘star’?
J.A., Regensburg, Germany.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)
On Saturday 20 June 2009 a friend and I left the Art Cinema
in Hilversum, the Netherlands, around 11.30pm and drove
along the motorway towards Blaricum when we saw a very
strange spectacle in the sky in the direction of Almere:
on the left in the sky we saw a very bright star and to
its right a kind of ‘cloud’ of at least 15, but maybe even
20, lights. After we left the highway we stopped the car,
but then we only saw the bright star that was moving away
from us, slowly, and eventually disappeared. We both thought
it could be a UFO mothership surrounded by a number of
UFOs. We are very interested to know what we saw?
E. B., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the “bright star” was indeed the
‘star’. The other objects were spacecraft from the planet Mars.)
It was 28 July 2009, at 12.19am, that I saw a star from my
home in Maastricht, the Netherlands, that made me wonder;
it was south-south-east of Maastricht. And at 4.48am there
was another star in the east over Margraten, but this ‘star’
was higher up in the sky.
(1) The star at 12.19am was spherical with a clear diameter
and an enormous luminosity. (2) The star of 4.48am looked
kind of butterfly-like. It was shaped like a triangle with
indentations of light in it, that made me think of a butterfly,
and the points sparkled brightly. (3) I saw also a star at
12.19am on the west side. It was smaller in diameter and
was sparkling less brightly than the ones I described above,
but was still remarkable compared to the other visible luminaries.
Did I see the ‘star’?
M. J., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that (1) and (2) were sightings of the
‘star’; (3) was a spacecraft from Venus.)
On 27 July 2009, my girlfriend and I were again looking at
the sky at the three stars which are always there, always
shining, always first to appear at the evening sky and
shining more than all the other stars – one directly above,
one to the south-west, and one to the south, just above
the horizon. This last one is constantly changing colour
to red, so everyone can see it.
Yesterday, my girlfriend was sitting outside, looking at
the star right above and searching to see if the fourth star
would appear. This fourth star is a bit tricky, because it
is always on the move. As strange as it sounds, this is what
happened: she called for me to come outside, and we sat there,
looking together. Out of nowhere, this fourth star appeared,
travelling across the sky, in a northerly direction. It didn’t
travel from the opposite direction (from the south), it just
appeared in the centre of the sky, travelling north. We saw
the star and wondered if this was the ‘star’, because it
was shining the same as all the other stars.
I myself was thinking if that is all, then its nothing special.
My girlfriend was thinking: “Get bigger, and brighter.” Then
suddenly, the star blinked, just like a lighthouse at the
sea at night. We were stunned, we just couldn’t believe it,
but the star, as if hearing our thoughts, blinked again,
and again, and again, five times in a row.
What is really interesting is this wasn’t a one-off event.
We had seen it before. We usually walk the dog every evening
around 8pm, and I go running every second day for an hour.
I saw this fourth star for the first time when I was running
– it was travelling from west to the east, in the northern
part of the sky. The next time we saw it together, it was
travelling in the same direction, but just above. The third
time my girlfriend saw it, again travelling across the sky.
On the fourth time, we went for a walk with the dog, as
usual. All the time I somehow knew that we would see it again.
We were walking for an hour and we were almost back at home,
so I thought to myself, better luck next time. But despite
this, I looked again at the star shining just above, thinking
to myself: “Light up, Light up! Light up!” And then it appeared
out of nowhere, in the vicinity of this star just above.
My girlfriend started shouting and then it blinked. As I
had wished. It was there for 5 seconds and then it was gone.
Are these the four stars?
M. Z., Majsperk, Slovenia.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms, yes they were the four ‘stars’.)
Angels in starships
by Giorgio Dibitonto
“A new Moses will lead you”
Book review by Gerard Aartsen – an excerpt
How many articles or books have you read that
left you with some indelible impression, as if you understand
the meaning of life all of a sudden, or as if you’ve lived
the experiences of the author yourself? Many readers of Share
International will probably list one of Benjamin Creme’s
books, or an article or interview about the Reappearance,
as such an experience. Undoubtedly, most people will have
a personal literary favourite, like one of Shakespeare’s
works. But frankly, once you’ve been acquainted with the
Ageless Wisdom Teaching, how often do you come across any
type of book which leaves you with a sense that you’ve actually
There wasn’t much to the subject of Angels in Starships that
prepared me for the experience that reading this 1983 book
by Giorgio Dibitonto proved to be. The author describes how
he and two of his friends are contacted by the Space Brothers
in 1980 and, over a period of many months, are trained for
more intensive contacts and experiences. Eventually they
are taken on several journeys in spacecraft, where exalted
beings teach them valuable lessons about life on Earth and
on other planets. Mr Dibitonto and his companions are also
asked to extend warnings of impending strophe if humanity
does not change its course. The overtly Christian tone and
references initially formed a test of my open-mindedness,
as it took me a good year-and-a-half to finally sit down
and read it properly.
Until then, the most interesting aspects appeared
to be Benjamin Creme’s remarks about George Adamski’s Venusian
origins in the publisher’s foreword, and the fact that the
author was introduced to the Space Brother who lived on earth
as Adamski (as confirmed by Benjamin Creme’s Master in Share International,
October 2008) by the very Space People whom Adamski had introduced
to the world in his books as the Saturnian Ramu, the Venusians
Orthon and Kalna, the Martians Firkon and Ilmuth, and Zuhl.
On his first encounter with his celestial contact,
the author is told: “It is not the first time that we have
met with men of Earth in this manner ... In your holy scriptures
you have read that the Lord spoke to men of Earth from out
of a cloud; your present encounter is no different from that
which was experienced by your forefathers throughout the
ages.” Many references to the biblical “pillars of cloud
by day and pillars of fire by night”, which led the Israelites
through the wilderness, are explained here as UFO’s guiding
humanity through testing times – both historically and at
present, while the angels and archangels of the Bible are
revealed here to have been Space Brothers.
Mr Dibitonto’s main extraterrestrial contact,
whom George Adamski referred to as ‘Ramu’ in his book Inside the
Space Ships, calls himself Raphael and reveals that
he was the ‘angel’ in human form who protected young Tobias
in the apocryphal Book of Tobit. (Interestingly,
the link between ‘historical’ angels and Space Brothers is
further reinforced by H.P. Blavatsky in The Secret Doctrine, Volume
III, where she talks about the seven “‘Star-regents’
or the informing deities of the seven planets”, whom she
identifies as “Mikael, Gabriel, Raphael, etc.” In the same
chapter Blavatsky explains that the “Lord of Hosts”, or tsabaoth in
Hebrew, literally means “the army of the ship”.)
According to Giorgio Dibitonto, Raphael explains:
“God is called the Lord of Hosts. The Bible tells you of
a battle between the heavenly hosts and the powers of evil.
It is good that the hosts of the Lord are always present,
working diligently for the triumph of the good on Earth –
an invited army in a ‘battle’ of love and salvation against
evil.” And as if in direct reference to what Benjamin Creme’s
Master calls ‘The gathering of the Forces of Light’, Raphael
adds: “Our numbers grow ever larger now in this time of our
coming to Earth for this great mission.”
The great mission that Raphael speaks of is
elaborated on later by Firkon, who explains: “The people
of Earth should prepare themselves for a new journey, one
that has no equal in all your history. No single event that
ever happened yet on Earth, can compare with that which stands
before you now.” Referencing the Exodus, he explains: “Clouds
and pillars of fire, which today you would call flying saucers
and motherships, were seen over the leaders of the Hebrews
who fled from Egypt. Exactly the same signs and realities
portend these days in a new and final journey, which will
lead you out of your present misery, into the true promised
land of universal love.”
Our “present misery” is described by Raphael
as the result of mankind’s experimentation with living after
its own desires. With that, he says, “the cycle of our present
time was begun. You, who had eaten the limitless fruits of
universal love, wanted to enjoy one single fruit, namely
to try the pitiable way of wrongdoing.... Man began to put
the bad in the place of the good, and decadence in the place
of progress.” To reassure his human companions, Raphael adds:
“We love God, our Father, because he loves us. He loves us
unconditionally, and we do likewise, for this is the proper
response. Soon your planet will comprehend this too, and
the long awaited day will dawn for you. I tell you truly,
it will be soon.”
Although clad in Biblical terms, the information
that Mr Dibitonto is given coincides in many ways with the
information from Benjamin Creme and his Master about the
transition from the old Age of Pisces into the new Age of
Aquarius. A striking example is when Orthon and Firkon discuss,
as one of the signs heralding this transition, the manifestations
of the Master Who was the Madonna, Who they say “appears
on Earth far more often than most people are aware. Several
times she has certified her presence with signs that arouse
awe and wonder, such as at Fatima.” Raphael explains that
the time has come for the fulfilment of the third prediction
of Fatima, which Benjamin Creme has described as “the fact
of the Christ’s imminent appearance in the world” (Share
International, October 2000).
The similarities with the information from
Benjamin Creme about the Reappearance of Maitreya, the Christ,
become even more explicit when, on another occasion, Kalna
says: “The Hebrews were led by a great universal brother,
who was born here in order to fulfil this important mission.
His name was Moses. You will be led by a new Moses whom we
all love and admire greatly. He will lead all the people
on this new exodus, like a good brother or father. All who
trust in him and want to have him as their leader, will arrive
at that goal that has been already chosen.” On yet another
occasion, a female Space Brother referred to only as “the
gracious lady” adds: “Today, the hour of universal truth
has struck, and a new Moses will lead all who wish it to
safety, without regard to race or nationality. He will be
able to read in each heart the slightest longing for goodness
and justice, which is the same as universal love.”
This reference to Maitreya’s social concerns
is also made more explicit, this time by Orthon: “The under-developed
state of many parts of the world results in starvation and
death through undernourishment and disease, as a consequence
of poverty. That is a very heavy burden of guilt to be borne
by those people who have a thriving culture.” Earlier Raphael
had hinted at the wider consequences of the state of our
planet by saying: “The Earth is out of harmony, and disintegrating
vibrations, like the scourges that lash her sorrowing multitudes,
create ever-widening zones on the planet where the life energies
are undermined. One day you will understand the reality of
these conditions which are beyond the grasp of your limited
science. Those few who have begun to realize the true situation
are misunderstood and left alone.”…
Despite the unmistakable Christian overtones
in the author’s narration, in a subtle, indefinable way Mr
Dibitonto’s description breaks down the barrier between our
conscious experience of dense-physical life on Earth and,
not just life on other planets, but, it seems, life on the
higher, inner planes of existence, leaving the reader as
a result with an overwhelming sense of oneness, similar to
what is experienced during a blessing by Maitreya.
In one passage, which describes the conclusion
of a visit to “a wonderful planet”, the author seems to describe
just such an experience when he says: “I felt enveloped in
perfect peace and melted with quiet rapture. When all this
was at its highest point.... a sublime fire took possession
of every living being present. It was like a golden cord,
from abyss to abyss, from world to world, from heaven to
heaven, from ecstasy to ecstasy. It drew closer to look into
our eyes and claim possession of every fibre of our being;
and so also with respect to each individual brother (and
sister) present, and the divine Mother and the Lord. I saw
a Godly Countenance of incomprehensible beauty coming down
from above…. This sublime personification repeated itself
a second, and yet a third time, the last time seeming to
appear as if coming from all directions at all points in
the room at the same time.”
The reality of which this book speaks is not
conveyed through the words which the author chose to describe
his experiences and the teachings and revelations which he
and his companions received. Yet the reality of our interconnectedness,
not only as a human family on this planet, but with every
expression of Life throughout the infinite cosmos, speaks
from this book in a way words alone could not achieve. It
seems to present itself through a definite heightening of
one’s conscious awareness which lingers on for several days
afterwards to the extent that it is more difficult to understand
humanity’s violation of itself as seen daily on the news,
or even to enjoy what one would previously consider ‘innocent’
forms of entertainment, such as watching a television series
or a film.
Reading this remarkable book evoked in me a
more profound understanding of our connection with and our
place in cosmos as the body of the Creator, where humanity
will only be allowed to roam free when it realizes, and acts from an experience
of, its essential oneness with all.

Questions about Angels in Starships
Q: From the information which the Space
Brothers give in Mr Dibitonto’s book it would seem that
most, if not all, of the angels and many of the prophets
in the Old Testament were Space Brothers. Could you comment,
Benjamin Creme: None of the prophets were Space Brothers
but members of the Earth’s Spiritual Hierarchy. Some of the
‘angels’ were indeed visitors from other planets.
Q: The ‘cosmic blessing’ which Mr Dibitonto
describes in chapter 15 of his book involves Space Brothers
whom the author refers to as “the Blessed Lady” and “the
Lord”, in a thinly-veiled reference to the Madonna, and
Jesus or the Christ, respectively. Was the event which
Mr Dibitonto described here attended by the Master Who
was the Madonna and the Master Jesus? Or were They Space
Brothers of much the same ‘standing’, if one can use that
Benjamin Creme: They were the Master Who was the Madonna
and the Master Jesus.
Q: On several occasions the Space Brothers
are said to warn of catastrophic events which await mankind
because of its wrong thoughts and actions, reminiscent
of the biblical Apocalypse. Could it be that the Space
Brothers rather warned about the collapse of our present
outmoded structures, while the author interpreted these
warnings according to his own (apparently Christian) understanding
of events surrounding the Second Coming?
Benjamin Creme: No. They were warning against the catastrophes
of global warming and the degradation of our environment,
Q: The Space Brother whom George Adamski
called Ramu identifies himself here as Raphael. Because
of the name, but also because of the type of experiences
which Mr Dibitonto describes in his book, I was reminded
of the advanced being who took Vera Stanley Alder on a
tour of the inner planes, both in micro and in macro cosmos
(if such a distinction exists on the inner planes!), which
she wrote about in her autobiography, From the
Mundane to the Magnificent. Was hers
the same Raphael as Mr Dibitonto’s contact from space?
Benjamin Creme: No.
A new path for Japan
“How can we put an end to unrestrained market
fundamentalism and financial capitalism, that are void of
morals or moderation, in order to protect the finances and
livelihoods of our citizens? That is the issue we are now
“In the post-Cold War period,” said Yukio Hatoyama,
Japan’s new Prime Minister, in an article published by the New
York Times, “Japan has been continually buffeted by
the winds of market fundamentalism in a US-led movement that
is more usually called globalization. In the fundamentalist
pursuit of capitalism people are treated not as an end but
as a means. Consequently, human dignity is lost.
“In these times, we must return to the idea
of fraternity – as in the French slogan “liberté, égalité,
fraternité” – as a force for moderating the danger inherent
Hatoyama continued: “The economic order in
any country is built up over long years and reflects the
influence of traditions, habits and national lifestyles.
But globalism has progressed without any regard for non-economic
values, or for environmental issues or problems of resource
“In terms of market theory, people are simply
personnel expenses. But in the real world people support
the fabric of the local community and are the physical embodiment
of its lifestyle, traditions and culture. An individual gains
respect as a person by acquiring a job and a role within
the local community and being able to maintain his family’s
“Under the principle of fraternity, we would not implement
policies that leave areas relating to human lives and safety
– such as agriculture, the environment and medicine – to
the mercy of globalism.
“Our responsibility as politicians is to refocus
our attention on those non-economic values that have been
thrown aside by the march of globalism. We must work on policies
that regenerate the ties that bring people together, that
take greater account of nature and the environment, that
rebuild welfare and medical systems, that provide better
education and child-rearing support, and that address wealth
Speaking about international relations, Hatoyama
said: “As we seek to build new structures for international
co-operation, we must overcome excessive nationalism and
go down a path toward rule-based economic cooperation and
Hatoyama concluded the article by quoting Count
Coudenhove-Kalergi, founder of the first popular movement
for a united Europe: “All great historical ideas started
as a utopian dream and ended with reality. Whether a particular
idea remains as a utopian dream or becomes a reality depends
on the number of people who believe in the ideal and their
ability to act upon it.” (Source: The New York Times, USA)
Leading figures urge Israel: Stop aggression
Sixty three Nobel laureates, 202 Members of
the European Parliament and other world figures such as Martin
Gray, Noam Chomsky, and Michel Rocard, former Prime Minister
of France, have so far signed the “Open the doors” appeal
launched in spring 2003 by an NGO called ‘Peace Lines’. The
appeal calls on Israel to end forever the siege of Gaza.
“More than 1.5 million people are trapped inside Gaza’s borders,
exposed to total arbitrariness,” the appeal claims.
Before the siege began in 2007, Israel had
drawn up a list of 4,000 “authorized” products that could
be delivered to the Gaza strip. Now only 30 to 40 products
are actually allowed through to Gaza’s citizens. Mattresses,
sheets, shoes, clothes, books, tea, coffee, are all forbidden,
as are concrete, doors and window panes, despite the urgent
need to rebuild because of the destruction caused by the
Israeli bombing during the last attack.
The appeal asks Hamas to release detainee Sergeant
Shalit of the Israeli army, while Israel should release a
significant number of over ten thousand Palestinian prisoners,
including all the elected members of the Palestinian legislature.
Among the signatories are Nobel Peace Prize
laureates Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Shirin
Ebadi, and Mairead Maguire from Northern Ireland.
Maguire previously distinguished herself by
accusing the municipality of East-Jerusalem of “ethnic cleansing”
against the Arab community. Dozens of Arab homes are under
threat of planned demolition. “I think that the Israeli government
is conducting a politics of ethnic cleansing against the
Palestinians here in East Jerusalem, which is contrary to
human rights and against the dignity of the Palestinian people”,
said peace activist Maguire. More than 1,500 Arabs are in
danger of losing their homes in this the largest eviction
operation since 1967. The pretext used is that the houses
were built or extended without Israeli permission, but the
Arabs claim that it is virtually impossible to get such permission.
More than 10,000 Palestinians live in this area, against
only 60 Jewish families. According to the Israeli peace movement
B’Tselem more than 400 houses in East-Jerusalem have already
been destroyed by the Israeli government.
Earlier, in March 2009, the UN Security Council
unanimously voted in favour of the creation of two separate
states as the only solution for peace. Speaking to the UN,
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said: “Palestinians continue
to see unacceptable and unilateral acts in East Jerusalem
and the remainder of the West Bank – house demolitions, intensified
settlement activity, settler violence, and oppressive movement
restrictions due to permits, checkpoints and the barriers,
which are intimately connected to settlements. The time has
come for Israel to change its politics completely as it has
repeatedly promised to do, but not yet done.”
