Planet Earth Now?
goodness grows weak,
When evil increases,
I make myself a body.
In every age I come back
To deliver the holy,
To destroy the sin of the sinner,
To establish righteousness.
I never thought I'd
wonder whether Christ was on planet Earth in my lifetime. But I have, and somehow I can't put the
thought of it out of my mind.
It all began during the summer of 2000
when I was browsing through the New Age/Spiritual section of my local
bookstore trying to find something new and exciting to read. This is not
an easy thing for me to do because I've devoured more than 400 of these
books after experiencing a profound, spiritual awakening ten years ago.
I looked through the
shelves and kept saying to myself "Thank you Spirit for bringing me
something good to read."
I soon found my eyes
focusing on a book called A Master Speaks. I picked it up,
read a few pages, and immediately knew its message was, indeed, something
new. As a matter of fact, it went way beyond something new.
makes no claim for an author on the front cover. It was simply an
inspired series of teachings given to a Benjamin
during the 1970's, which have since been published by a non-profit
organization called Share
Who was the source
of these teachings? The source is a Master from the Spiritual Hierarchy
whose wisdom and insights were telepathically transferred to Benjamin Crème, who
then transcribed them into words. Now, that in itself is not unusual for
this New Age. There are many "inspired" books available today.
But here is what really caught my attention...
1959, Christ told Benjamin Creme that He would be returning to planet
Earth and that he (Creme) would have a role to play in the event if he
chose to accept it.
in 1982, after many years of training with his Master, Creme went public
with the message that Christ had returned.
to Benjamin Creme, "The Christ is in the world. He has been
in London since July 1977. There He lives and works as a modern man,
concerned with modern problems - political, economic and social. He is
spiritual but not a religious teacher, an educator in the broadest sense
of the word…"
would take on human form and be known as Maitreya (pronounced my-TRAY-uh), a name purposely
chosen for its neutrality so that no single religion could claim Him as
their personal messiah.
Maitreya was not here to form a religion. Rather, He was here to play
a role similar to the one He came to planet Earth for 2000 years ago. At
that time, a physical projection of the higher Christ energy, Jesus, came to us as a Teacher
of Righteousness to show us how to end injustice in this world through
sharing and unconditional love for all.
Creme further tells us that,
"Maitreya, the World Teacher, is the personal name of the Head of
the Spiritual Hierarchy. He is expected by the world's major religions
as the Messiah, Krishna, the Imam Mahdi, Maitreya Buddha, and the
Christ. An avatar for the new age, He returns as the teacher and guide
of all humanity, religious and non-religious alike. He comes with His
group, the Masters of Wisdom. Together, they will inspire humanity to
create a brilliant new civilization based upon justice and
goes on to say that Maitreya works behind the scenes with others to
prepare the way for His public emergence, which will occur when the
global financial markets reach their worst phase of collapse.
Maitreya's presence will be confirmed on the "Day of Declaration"
when He will appear on worldwide television. When that happens His
energy will unmistakably enter all of us, and hundreds of thousands of
spontaneous healings will occur. And there will be no doubt that He is
walking among us again.
To say the least,
these are no small claims. If true, it would be the most profound event
in the history of mankind. I was very aware that others have made
"Christ is here" proclamations in the past, and I wondered to
myself why this was any different.
The only way I know
how to sort truth from fiction is to keep an open mind while sifting
through such information. Then, I see how it feels in my
heart. Does it have the ring of truth to it, does it create vibrations
of love, is it devoid of negative energy, does it try to control or
motivate through fear, and most importantly, how does it feel at the
soul (intuitive) level?
A Master Speaks is, without doubt,
a message of hope and unconditional love. It also expresses a genuine
concern for the social injustices and lack of sharing that exists on this
planet, and how it will be righted and healed, as humanity learns to
see itself as one family from one divine source, during the New Age
I had to admit that the words in this book were totally
consistent with Jesus' sermon on the mount, and his vision for all of
I then researched Share International's web site, and
read the free newsletter for many years. None of it smacks of control or cultism, all of it honors
and respects one's free will, and it continues to feel right in the
During July 2000, I
asked a very wise, awakened, and discriminating friend of mine to attend
a Benjamin Creme lecture in New York City. I wanted to get his reaction
to Creme's presence, message, and the energy he created. His reaction
unequivocally confirmed my own feelings and personal observations. Even
the New York Times gave this review about Creme's message: "A
decidedly upbeat description of world changes."
Here are some
interesting insights passed on to me by my friend who attended the Creme
Maitreya can materialize and dematerialize in
the flesh at will.
This time He will not be killed nor will it be
He and other wise Teachers will be with us throughout
the Age of Aquarius.
Maitreya says that if the wealthy nations, businesses,
and individuals share their
abundance with the poor voluntarily, there will be a
smooth transition to the
new order. If not, a financial collapse of world
proportions caused by humanity's greed
eventually accomplish the same thing. As always,
the choice is up to us.
All of this
continues to hold my interest, while inspiring a sense of awe and wonder
about the possible presence of the Christ energy. After all, isn't
this the time of His promised return?
Benjamin Creme has
humbly and courageously gone about his work for many years
spreading the message about Maitreya and His mission of love. I cannot
find any apparent selfish motivations behind the dedicated, hard work
that Mr. Creme has tirelessly given of himself for more than 35
years of his life.
In the United States alone, he has been interviewed
on more than 300 radio and television programs. Even at the age of
continues to give lectures of hope and inspiration throughout the
world. His is no small effort (note Mr. Creme passed on October 2016),
but his message of hope lives on.
It would seem that millions of people
have already been exposed to the possibility that Maitreya just might be
here, or is it too incredible to believe? Would you have believed such
a story 2000 years ago? There was a forerunner of Jesus at that
time announcing his coming. Why not now? Surely, if ever humanity and
planet Earth needed the presence of Christ, this would be the time.
And what message has
Maitreya for us? Here are some of His words…
can you be content with the modes within which you now live: when
millions starve and die in squalor; when the rich parade their wealth
before the poor; when each man is his neighbor's enemy; when no man
trusts his brother? For how long must you live thus, my friends? For how
long can you support this degradation?
Take your brother's need as the measure for your action, and solve
the problems of the world. There is no other course.

do not want you to believe in me. I want you to experience me. If you
take one step towards me, I will take two steps toward you. I will lend
you my strength. I am always with you."
In terms of cosmic
events and human destiny, this could indeed be the return of the Teacher
we've been hoping and praying for during the past 2000 years. The more I
research this material the more I am convinced this may very well be
real because the noble efforts of Mr. Crème and the words
of the Master and Maitreya always touch a very deep part of me. All of it
resonates with love and truth. In the end, please make you own
decisions. And may they come from the heart.
Please keep in mind that Maitreya's first
appearances on television, prior to His day of declaration, will be as an ordinary man whose message
will appeal to those who want positive change to occur on this planet.
We are told His first appearance will be in the United States. He will then repeat this message on television around the world. When the
masses begin to clamor for a better way of life based upon justice,
sharing and equality, He will
formally announce Himself as Maitreya. This is expected to coincide with
the time when the financial systems in the world are in disarray.
In addition to being
the editor of Share International magazine, which circulates
to more than 70 countries, Benjamin Creme has written 9 books, which
have been translated into 11 languages, and
continues to spread the message of Maitreya's return. He accepts
no money for any of this work. Prior to his passing, Benjamin Creme was married,
is survived by his wife and three
children, and lived in London.
Creme is also associated with a worldwide network of mainly volunteer
groups who have responded to his message and assist in its
dissemination. I invite the reader to visit the Share International
