The 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 leavening.

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?

A. We 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 Maitreya.

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 to?

A. (1) My information is that this is not the case. (2) Unknown.

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 it was!

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 (Lucis Trust).

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 information?

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 this pollution.

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. (3) Yes.

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 them.

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

Dear Editor,
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?

Two letters from the same person:


Dear Editor,
(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.)

Night blessing

(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?

Finnish blessing

Dear Editor,
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?

(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.)

Gemstone miracle

Dear Editor,
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?

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 missing link’)

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 Christ’)

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 of Life)

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 Two)

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 Man’)

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 well’)

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 or academic.

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 One)

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 [1995], 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 2009)

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 emergence.

How to spot the ‘star’
“It behaves in a way no other celestial object does.” — Benjamin Creme

The ‘star’
• 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 when asked
• several witnesses have even seen all four ‘stars’ together
• is seen all over the world.

Note: Benjamin 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

Japan tv report on 'star'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 Tokumitu Yanagisawa.

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’.)


Tilburg, the Netherlands, 25 July 2009. E. H. writes: “About midnight the star was positioned low in the sky, east-southeast, and moved unusually fast southward. In the foreground the funfair can be seen.”

Dear Editor,
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 Maitreya’s emergence?
S. M., Buenos Aires, Argentina.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the light was the ‘star’)

Dear Editor,
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?

Dear Editor,
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’?

Dear Editor,
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.

Dear Editor,
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’?

Dear Editor,
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.)

Dear Editor,
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.)

Dear Editor,
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 experienced something?

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, please?
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 word here?
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, the planet.

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.


Wise words

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 facing.”

“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 within freedom.”

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 restriction.

“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 livelihood.
“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 disparities.”

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 security.”

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 against Gaza

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.”
