Interview with Benjamin Creme
Jason V. Francis, May 11, 2010
Since his first
public talk in 1974, Benjamin Creme—Scottish artist, author,
futurist and editor of Share International magazine—has been
lecturing around the world about the emergence of Maitreya
(My-tray-uh) the World Teacher. I had the privilege of interviewing
Benjamin Creme about Maitreya.
Jason Francis: Who
Maitreya is the head and leader of a group of (from our point of
view) completely perfected Men: Masters of Wisdom, as They’re
called. They are Men who have gone ahead of us in evolution and have
finished the evolution of this planet. They don’t even have to be on
this planet but many of Them remain and oversee the evolution of the
rest of us—that’s Their role.
They are a kind of
inner government of the planet. They know the Plan of Evolution,
which is in the mind of the Logos of this planet: the great Heavenly
Man Whose body of expression this planet is. They seek to put that
Plan into operation through humanity and the lower kingdoms.
religious groups see Maitreya as the One they are expecting.
Christians await the return of the Christ who through Jesus said He
would appear again— not when He would appear, but that He would come
again. Maitreya embodies what we call the Christ Principle (the
energy of love); not just transmits or channels it through Himself
but embodies it in His own Being. And so He is the Christ.
Two thousand years
ago He worked through Jesus. Jesus in the esoteric tradition is not
the Christ but the vehicle for the Christ. The Christ Himself being
Maitreya. This is the age-old way for a teacher to come. For
example, 600 years before Jesus the Buddha manifested Himself
through the Prince Guatama. And Guatama Buddha became known as the
Buddha, but He wasn’t the Buddha. He was the vehicle for the Buddha,
a body through which the Buddha worked. That’s the way the teachers
have come to the Earth right up until this time.
This time it’s
different. Maitreya has found a way in which He Himself can come to
the world; not through a disciple like Jesus or Krishna or the way
the Buddha worked through Guatama, but in His own Being. And so we
have the return of the Christ in completeness and not working
through a lesser Being.
Muslims await Him as
the great Imam: the Imam Mahdi. Hindus await Him as the return of
Krishna, or some believe He is Kalki Avatar—the teacher for this
coming Age. Buddhists await him under His name, Maitreya Buddha.
Before He died the Prince Guatama gave a message from the Buddha,
which was that at this time would come into the world a great
Teacher by the name Maitreya who, by dint of His tremendous
spiritual status, would galvanize and inspire humanity into the
creation of a brilliant, golden civilization based, as He put it, on
righteousness and truth. So for these last two thousand and a half
years the Buddhists have awaited the return of Maitreya Buddha.
But they have no
idea of the time. Some imagine it in 2,000 or 3,000 years from now,
some in 200,000 years from now. I’m speaking from Japan, as you
know, and the Japanese believe that the Buddha will indeed return as
Maitreya Buddha, but it will be in 650,000,000 years, or something
like that. So there is no hurry from their point of view.
My information is
that Maitreya, the head and leader of our Spiritual Hierarchy, is
the embodiment of all these expectations. He is the Christ to
Christians; the Buddha to Buddhists; Krishna returned or Kalki
Avatar to Hindus; the Messiah of the Jews; the Imam Mahdi to
Muslims. And many of them believe He is coming very, very soon,
within two or three years. In fact, some believe He is already in
the world. They are quite right. My experience is that Maitreya has
been literally, physically, in the everyday world of our life, in
the middle of our life, living in the Asian community of London
since July 19, 1977.
JF: How did you
become involved in the work of telling the world of Maitreya’s
Emergence?BC: I was contacted by one of His disciples—a Master of
Wisdom—way back in January of 1959. In a few months, March 1959, I
was brought into the Hierarchy and had a great experience in which
Maitreya said that He Himself was coming sooner than anyone thought
He said it would be
in about twenty years. In the event it was eighteen years. He said I
would have a role in His coming (He didn’t say what the role was) if
I accepted it. I was filled with His energy, the subject of
tremendous power and love. It was a transfiguring experience. And so
I said I’m your man, whatever it is I have to do I’ll do. So that’s
what I’ve been doing since 1975: preparing the way for the return of
the Christ (in Christian terms) although He is also seen by all
these other groups under these different names.
JF: You talked about
a group of divine Men known as the Masters of Wisdom, the inner
government of the planet. Where do the Masters come from and are
They like us?
BC: They are exactly
like us. They are like ordinary Men living in the world except that
They have gone ahead of us in evolution. They haven’t changed Their
physical appearance but They have evolved Their consciousness until
They are like Gods. They have a God-like consciousness. They are
divine in that sense but They see us as divine in exactly the same
sense. They see no difference in Their divinity and our divinity.
They see life as the sphere in which divinity exists. They see all
of us as living in a divine and spiritual universe and They see the
nature of all life as spiritual.
Maitreya comes as a
great Teacher about the nature of life. He makes no difference
between His life and our life. He says: “Don’t worship Me. If you
worship Me you are putting Me above you. And I am not above you. I
am at exactly the same point. There is only divinity. There is no
greater or lesser divinity. There is just one divinity and we all
share it.” So He sees us as divine as He is. Only from a mental, or
awareness, point-of-view He is far, far older then we are and has
evolved to a point where He can demonstrate His divinity. We can’t
demonstrate our divinity if we don’t even know we are divine.
JF: Speaking of the
Masters as having gone ahead of us in evolution, you’ve talked in
the past about meditation and service as levers of evolution. Is
there a scientific basis to meditation and service if we are
BC: Meditation and
service are prime poles in what we call spiritual advancement. We
are all on a spiritual path and that path is known by the Masters
because They have all traveled that path and have come, as far as
this planet is concerned, to the end of the path. So They can teach
us about the nature of the path, the way to the path, how to remain
on the path and serve the path. Meditation and service are part of
When a person is
ready to work consciously with his or her evolution, the soul,
because each of us is a divine soul, prompts its reflection (that’s
the man or woman on the physical plane) into taking up some form of
meditation. And meditation brings the person closer and closer to
the soul and eventually to complete at-one-ment with that soul.
That’s the purpose of meditation: to bring the person into at-one-ment
with their soul.
Evolution is really
the process by which we become more-and-more identified with and
express our soul. The soul is a reflection of the supreme, divine
Being who lies behind all manifestation. So the soul is perfect in
every way and we gradually become more and-more perfect as we
become more-and-more like the nature of the soul. That’s what
evolution is: the evolution of consciousness.
I’m not talking
about the evolution of the physical bodies, which evolve from the
animal kingdom. All of the kingdoms evolve from the kingdom below
it: the first is the mineral kingdom; from that came the vegetable
kingdom; from that grew the animal kingdom; and from the animal
kingdom came the human kingdom. We owe our bodies to the animal
kingdom. But we are not animals. We are human beings, something
That difference is
that we are souls—reflections of souls. The soul reflects the divine
and reflects itself further as the human being. And so we are really
three-fold. We are human beings, men and women on the physical
plane. This is a dense physical planet and we are in dense physical
bodies, but essentially that is the lowest aspects of ourselves. We
are really the soul at a higher aspect, and at a higher aspect still
we are divinity Itself.
JF: Why have
Maitreya and the Masters returned at this time?
BC: They have come
to an end of a cycle in Their own evolution, which requires Their
return to the everyday physical plane of Earth. They have reached
this point individually where They don’t need to be in the world but
as a group They have to prove Their ability to function perfectly
and have control on all planes.
We have only slight
consciousness. We have consciousness and a great deal of control on
the physical plane. We have consciousness to a degree on the astral
(emotional) plane but very little control. And we have only a slight
degree, I may say, of consciousness on the mental plane and
absolutely no control on that plane at all. There is awareness of
being of which we cannot even begin to imagine but which is the
everyday consciousness of the Master.
JF: Is the emergence
of Maitreya and the Masters connected in any way to what is called
the “New Age” or “Age of Aquarius”?
BC: Very much so.
Not so much on the part of the Masters, but They are using this
opportunity, since They have to return, to do so at this time
because we are at the difficult transitional phase between the Age
of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius. This is an astronomical fact;
there is nothing mystical about it. It is the result of the movement
of our solar system around the heavens in relation to the
constellations of our zodiac.
Our sun with its
planets makes such a journey in space, which takes approximately
25,000 to 26,000 years to complete. So approximately every 2,150
years our sun moves through the spheres of influence of the energies
of one planet into the sphere of influence of the energies of
another. For the last 2,150 years or so it has been in the
Constellation of Pisces, the “fish”, and has come through that. We
have been influenced by the energies and qualities of these energies
and created this civilization, which is now, literally, falling
apart, coming to an end. The energies of Pisces began to recede in
1625 and the energies of Aquarius began to come in during 1675.
Now these two
energies are not exactly but more or less equal. And this is the
great difficulty. If either of them dominated in potency there would
be greater stability in the world. But the world is wrenching from
one sphere of influence to another. When I say “the world” I mean
the world of men and women. So the people of the world are divided
into two groups: one, largely the older group, who are satisfied
with or used to the quality and the results of the energies of
Pisces. For instance, these energies of Pisces have conditioned
every aspect of our life: the political, economic, religious,
scientific, educational and cultural structures and institutions and
are all the result of our Piscean experience.
The quality above
all, which Pisces has given to humanity, is the quality we call
individuality. 2,000 years ago individuals of course were there but
only on a very small scale and they were always the people with
power; the people who could rule the others. Humanity as a whole had
only a dim kind of consciousness and did what they were told by
people with individuality. Today, individuality is a mass
phenomenon. Everybody today is more-or-less an individual; some very
potent individuals indeed. So we have brought individuality to a
point where it rules everything in the world. We’re all rulers in a
sense and this is very difficult to cope with.
energies of Aquarius, on the other hand, work in an entirely
different way. They are the energies of synthesis. As a result of
passing through the age of synthesis, the Age of Aquarius, which
will last about 2,350 to 2,500 years, the quality above all which we
will be aware of is synthesis. And this will fuse and blend all the
disparate parts of the world into a synthesis without destroying the
individuality. That individuality is there and is ours to keep and
is a great advance from what was before, but its overuse has created
a separation in the world so that the wonders, the brotherhood, and
the unity of the world are profoundly threatened today. In fact, the
creation of the nuclear bomb is one of the greatest factors that
have brought the Masters one by one into the world today.
There are about 14
Masters living in the world today, together with the Master of all
the Masters the Lord Maitreya. There are 63 Masters connected simply
with the human evolution. (There are many other evolutions, which
have many other Masters.) Eventually, there will be about two-thirds
of those Masters, about 40, who will eventually live openly in the
JF: Could you
discuss what Maitreya means when He talks about honesty of mind,
sincerity of spirit and detachment?
BC: Maitreya says there are many ways to attain liberation.
Liberation meaning awareness of the real nature of life, what the
purpose of life is and the attainment of perfection. He says: “My
way is the simplest way. Practice three things: honesty of mind,
sincerity of spirit and detachment.”
He says that few
people have honesty of mind. Most people think one thing, say
something else and do something else again. So there is no direct
line from what we think to what we do. Honesty of mind changes that
situation until what we think is what we do. We are true to what we
He says sincerity of
spirit can best be thought of when you have a deep talk with an old
much-loved friend. And you are speaking from heart to heart. You are
not trying to convince your friend that you are better than you are;
not trying to put anything over on them; you’re not trying to be
anything but completely true, honest and respectful in what you are
to your friend. That’s sincerity of spirit.
It’s speaking from
the heart, thinking and loving from the heart to the heart—a direct
heart reaction, which goes past the mental gymnastics, which most
people do when talking to someone else. They are trying to put
themselves over on them and trying to get the person to think more
highly of them. They want to be loved, to be liked, to feel
comfortable, to be taken seriously. Everybody has a want in relation
to other people. But to be utterly and sincerely yourself and speak
from the heart to the heart that’s sincerity of spirit.
Detachment is the
ability to live with an absolutely calm and unruffled emotional
body. If you were to see the emotional body of a Master it is like a
lake, a still lake with no wind and the water is absolutely still
and unruffled. That is how our emotional body should be but in fact,
as you know, almost everybody is pulled and turned daily by the
movement of their emotions. The emotions tend to rule the expression
of most people. So detachment is the ability to see yourself not as
the person in the mirror, not to see yourself as this physical body
with its emotions and thoughts and ideas of the mental body, but to
be aware of yourself as in fact you are, which is a soul in
JF: What are
priorities are very simple. Maitreya sees the world as the home for
everyone. He sees everyone as divine; every single person is a
fragment, a spark, of the divine. And He sees what really pertains
in the world. At the moment half the world is poor. Millions of
people are starving to death every year in a world with a huge
surplus of food. And nothing concerns Him more than this. He says:
“Nothing so moves Me to grief as this shame. The crime of separation
must be driven from this earth. I affirm that as My purpose.”
The “crime of
separation” is the fact that people have a sense that they have no
relationship other than with their immediate family, friends or the
people of their own village, town or country. Other people across
the world and who we don’t know are, whether we like it or not or
know it or not, our brothers and sisters. Humanity, Maitreya says,
is One—one group called humanity. The differences in color,
religion, traditions and so on are only coincidental.
In the process of
reincarnation almost everybody in the world has been through every
race, every color and every tradition. So it’s nonsense, a crime, to
separate humanity. That is the crime, the crime of separation, which
brings about the complacency that allows millions of people to die
in the midst of plenty. There’s more than enough food for everybody.
And yet two-thirds of the world lives on a dollar a day, whereas
millions of them die with absolutely nothing. They die of want and
suffer and go from camp to camp trying to get a life for their
everyone—humanity is varied, but everyone— has the same needs. And
what we need is enough correct food, the proper food for our bodies.
Everybody must eat to live. It’s the nature of life. Everybody needs
enough food; needs shelter from the elements; needs healthcare.
Humanity has great ills from over millions of years of incarnation;
and they need education. Food, shelter, healthcare and education are
priorities for every single person on the planet.
That doesn’t seem
too much to ask but there is no country in the world, not even the
richest country in the world, which has all four of these as a
right. Maitreya sees these as fundamental human rights that should
JF: Education is
often thought of as learning how to read, write, do arithmetic and
so forth. However, I can imagine that with the expanded
consciousness of the Master education must have a far larger meaning
then learning to read and write, as important as that is to learn.
Could you discuss what education means?
BC: Yes, this is
true. Everybody, of course, has to read and write. That’s elementary
education. Every young adult and child has to learn the mechanics of
living in the physical world. So you learn to read and write. But
They don’t call that education. Education for a Master is education
of consciousness, so that people become aware of and give expression
to who and what they are.
If you have the
capacity you might become a Leonardo da Vinci, a Rembrandt or an
Einstein—somebody extraordinarily brilliant. But only as a result of
having the inner capacity in the first place and the education which
gives the person the opportunity to manifest that. Everybody is
divine so everyone has divine attributes. And education is the way
of becoming aware of and giving expression to these attributes.
He says that under
the guidance of Himself and the Masters over the next 2,500 years
everybody on the planet will begin to evolve through the ability—by
the reconstruction of our lives, including our educational
structures—to express that which they are. He says everybody counts.
Everybody is needed. Everybody has within him or her tremendous
possibilities, acumen, awareness and talent. Only a fraction of
humanity has at any given time the opportunity to give expression to
Under the guidance and stimulus of the Masters, He says that all
people on the planet will give what they have, the fraction of the
divinity, which is theirs and the creativity that comes with that
divinity. What we call creativity, which makes a person a Leonardo
da Vinci or a Rembrandt, is the result of the awareness of the
divinity of which they themselves are a reflection. Creativity and
divinity are one and the same things.
Until people become
aware of their divinity and are freed from the weight of want that
bears down on countless millions of people, they are given no
opportunity to express that divinity and that creativity which lies
dormant within them. Under the stimulus of Maitreya and the Masters
there will be an extraordinary flowering in this coming time, over
the next 2,500 years, of the innate creativity that every single
JF: Could you tell
us about your book “The Gathering of the Forces of Light: UFOs and
their Spiritual Mission” (2010)?
BC: This is my
latest book. I began my work with what I call the Space Brothers—the
people who use the UFOs, as they are called, the Unidentified Flying
Objects. They are very identifiable to me. They are the vehicles
used by the people on our sister planets of our system. They all
come from our own system: the large majority from Mars and Venus but
also from Jupiter and various other planets.
Now that sounds
crazy. Some people might think there is no life on Mars or Venus
that we know of—you couldn’t live there. Well, that is a
misunderstanding. That is a statement made by our scientists, not
because of their knowledge but out of their ignorance of the true
reality of our physical plane. They postulate that there are three
physical states or planes: solid physical, liquid physical and
gaseous physical and above that nothing.
They are looking for
something else, which their calculations tell them is there but
which they cannot pinpoint, examine and experiment with. They call
it “dark matter”. Dark matter is actually what the Masters call the
etheric planes of matter. Above gas there are four (to us, as yet)
invisible planes. And since they cannot be seen we don’t even
register them; we think they don’t exist. They do exist.
If you went to Mars
you would see nobody at all unless you had the vision, which
encompasses the four etheric planes, each one finer and higher as it
goes up. So the fourth is the lowest and the first is the highest
etheric plane. And these are physical but etheric physical. Our
physical eyes can’t see them unless we have etheric vision. In this
coming time more and more children will be born with some degree of
etheric vision and will see what as yet is unseen by the vast
majority of humanity.
If you went to Mars
you would—as scientists say, because they’ve sent probes to Mars and
taken photographs—see a dead planet, but you don’t see anybody. In
fact there are more people living on Mars, although it is a much
smaller planet, than are living on Earth. It is possible because
they are of etheric physical being. To themselves they are perfectly
solid, physical and real. To us they are invisible.
The spacecraft that
they make (of which they are the masters of space) are made mainly
on Mars. Even many of the Venusian ones, the specifications are made
on Venus but the actual craft are made on Mars. And they are made
out of etheric physical matter. It’s physical but it’s etheric. It’s
invisible in itself unless you have etheric vision.
It’s a question of
etheric vision. We could have and will develop etheric vision. Some
people have some degree of etheric vision. Our physical makeup is
more or less complete. What we don’t have is etheric vision. Except
a relatively few people have some level of etheric vision— perhaps
the fourth and the third etheric plane. The second and the first are
very fine and usually the last of all to be seen. When you have
etheric vision you have the reality, which lies behind that vision.
All of the planets in our system are inhabited. In fact what we call
“Man” exists throughout the whole of cosmos but not necessarily in
the same physical condition as we think is the only one which can be
called physical. Many are physical in the same sense as we are, but
most are in the etheric physical. All of the others in our own solar
system are in the etheric and that’s why we think they are
The Space Brothers
create these craft and they are here on a spiritual mission. They
are not here for fun. They are here to help humanity. They are
absolutely and totally dedicated to their spiritual mission. That’s
why I call it “UFOs and Their Spiritual Mission”. And the “Forces of
Light” are the forces of our own Spiritual Hierarchy now coming One
by One into the everyday world from the inner planes—but they have
never been elsewhere but in the world—and the Space Brothers coming
together to help humanity.
Without their help
this planet would probably be more or less uninhabitable. Their work
is the cleansing—to an extent, they are not allowed by Karmic Law to
do it completely—to some degree of the air, oceans, seas, rivers and
land of all the pollution we pour into it or release into the
atmosphere. The most dangerous of all of the pollution we release is
coming from nuclear power stations. The nuclear scientists believe
they have complete control over nuclear energy. They absolutely do
Above what can be
measured (gaseous physical) they have not yet the technology to
measure. They think that if there is nothing measurable it doesn’t
exist. But the higher levels, which they today call “dark matter”,
the etheric planes of matter, are there. And on the etheric planes
nuclear radiation is pouring out of every nuclear power station in
the world, every nuclear experiment, every nuclear bomb. It pours
into the world a toxic gas, if I can call it that, which is above
gas and is the most dangerous thing to Earth.
The Masters have
recorded that the ills of humanity are worst at the etheric physical
plane. The incidence of Alzheimer’s disease at a lower and lower age
is the direct result of this toxic nuclear gas, which is affecting
all humanity, breaking down the immune systems of humanity and
bringing in wave after wave of new diseases, influenzas and
toxicities, which we no longer have the capacity to deal with. So
getting Alzheimer’s used to be an illness of old people but now
middle-aged people indeed and even young people have become infected
by this toxic result of the energy pouring out of the nuclear power
The nations have
plans to build even more power stations. The French, Japanese,
Americans and so on see his as one way to deal with the carbon
footprint, the heating up of the Earth. It would make it even worse.
It would destroy humanity if they make any more power stations.
Maitreya is speaking
openly and He has already appeared 13 times on an American
television. [Benjamin Creme was interviewed on May 11, 2010.
Maitreya has since given numerous interviews on television in
Mexico, Brazil, and Russia.] And gradually His words will be taken
seriously. He is not working completely openly. He is incognito. He
is not using the name Maitreya. He is appearing as an ordinary man,
as one of us, but in fact it is Maitreya.
When He is asked
about the effect of nuclear radiation in the world I am sure He will
be very clear how dangerous it is and that all nuclear power plants
and experimentation and so on have to be stopped and dismantled for
our children and their children.
JF: In December 2008
Share International sent a press release to the world’s media
announcing that an unusual “star” would soon be seen around the
world both day and night. Since that time many dozens of videos have
turned up on YouTube showing an unusual “star” in the sky and Share
International magazine has also been publishing countless photos of
the “star” sent in by readers. You say the “star” is a modern day
version of the Star of Bethlehem and is inaugurating Maitreya’s
return. You have also said that there are actually four of these
“stars”. Could you tell us what they are?
BC: They are
gigantic spaceships: one from Mars, one from Jupiter, one from Venus
and one from a planet whose name has not been given. They are
spacecraft (not ordinary UFOs doing their ordinary work, which is
extraordinary), which do this special work vis-à-vis the ‘star’.
I have been told the
four “stars”will be in place until the Day of Declaration [the day
Maitreya announces Himself to the world upon invitation], in the
North, South, East and West, so that wherever you are in the world
your area will be covered by a ‘star’. All you have to do is keep
looking for them; they don’t appear all the time. People imagine you
just look up and suddenly see them. It is not that simple. They are
gigantic but they do not fill the sky. They are larger than planets
and stars and they move.
Each “star” is about
the size of five football fields put together. They don’t appear all
the time because they have to recharge their batteries. So they move
as close to the sun as possible to recharge their batteries that
way. That takes time and then they return to position and move
around. That is the thing about the `star’—it moves around.
JF: You mentioned
earlier that Maitreya is being interviewed on American television
but incognito. How are people responding to Maitreya when they hear
Him speak and do we know how many have heard Him speak thus far?
BC: I don’t know how
many people have heard Him. Millions and millions have the
opportunity to hear Him because it goes out on the Internet at the
same time. I don’t know how many in fact have heard Him. But the
effect according to my Master—I have not heard one, I don’t see or
hear American television [in London, England]—is threefold. Some
find what He has to say not what they like at all. They want the
world to carry on this way that is, bringing it to a point where we
will destroy all life on the planet, though they might not know it.
They are afraid of change and they are afraid of that kind of
change, the change of attitude that Maitreya is no doubt seeking to
bring forward: the fact that humanity is One. We are brothers and
sisters of one planet and under the one God and we have this planet
as ours to look after and not to destroy.
Then there are those
who, I am told, have already recognized—not necessarily Maitreya;
they may not know Him as Maitreya—that Maitreya is not an ordinary
man, not just simply one of us. They believe He must be sent from
above to say the things He does say. He has brought new hope and new
life into their hearts and they can only wait hopefully until He is
declared before the whole world. Others see Him as interesting and
Some have already,
in the sense that they pray to Him, recognized His divinity. There
are all these different kinds of reactions.
JF: Will Maitreya be
speaking on television in other nations?
BC: Well, this
subtle re-education of humanity will go on. Maitreya will—I don’t
know when, but quite soon—finish speaking on television in America
and will go to Japan, Europe, China, Russia, South America and so
on. He will go around the world, appearing on television until most
people will have heard Him and respond to Him and His ideas.
JF: What is the
reason behind His appearing incognito, or not mentioning His true
status, during His interviews?
BC: He wants the
people to respond to Him because they want for the world what He is
advocating for the world, which is sharing, justice and peace. He
says without peace there will be no world. If there is a major war
it would be nuclear and would destroy all life— human and
subhuman—on planet Earth. He says peace is essential. But how do we
get peace? He says there will never be peace until there is justice
in the world. So we have to create justice.
How do we create
justice? He says justice will only come when there is trust. How do
we get trust? He say there is only one way to get trust and that is
to share the resources of the world. He says it is so simple. The
answer is in our own hands. When we accept sharing we automatically
create the trust, which leads to the end of injustice. And there is
massive injustice in the world. Wars and terrorism are the result of
injustice. People feel the injustice, they feel affronted and angry
about the injustice of the world and rightly. A few countries, the
G8 nations of the world, usurp and waste three quarters of the
resources of the world.
Why should the
people in Africa, parts of India and South America accept that they
have nothing? That they starve to death? That they live miserable
lives hunted by misery and poverty and want? Why? The world,
Maitreya says, belongs to everybody, not just a few developed
nations. He says the gap between the developed and the developing
world is getting larger and larger. He says in that gap lies the
potential for a third world war. That war would be nuclear and would
destroy all life on Earth.
So we have a choice.
We have free will. The choice is ours, but we have to make that
choice. He doesn’t come to make that choice for us but to show what
the choice is. The choice is to go on as we are going and destroy
everything and all life on Earth or to accept the principle of
sharing, create the trust which gets rid of the injustice and have
the peace, which will come only as the result of the ending of
injustice. He says while there is injustice there will never be
We know where we
