Question: Have unit consciousnesses always been
with the Father before the creation of the universe?
Maitreya: Remember that when the creation
started, or the big bang, or the beginning of the universe, all that
period of deciding, "Let there be Light," was a very short period of
time, probably a millisecond or a second in time. Before the awakening
of the universe with that first release of energy, everything was in a
state of balance, nothing was manifested, nothing was there. People say
it was the state of nothingness. But how can anything be created from
The consciousness and three gunas were there but they
were in a sleeping state, just like when we fall to sleep. When we are
asleep we are in a completely relaxed position. When the creation
started, when God woke up, or the balance between the forces was
disturbed, the whole universe started getting involved.
A burst of energy started going out. And because of
the different levels of the consciousness in the universe, different
levels of manifestation started coming through, coming to awakening.
That's why some people call it the primordial soup.
So it was in a state where everything had the
potential of being created, but nothing had manifested itself yet. It
was just that everything was there. Everything had the potential to be
created but hadn't.
Just imagine that everything was awakened and had the
potential, just like us. We have so much potential to manifest so much
but we're not aware of that potential. So it was there. It was not
awakened yet. It was there but it was not awakened. The moment this
energy was released, the first awareness was, "I know." The second was,
"I do." And the third was the memory, "I have done."
As it expanded itself outwardly that energy should
have been incredible. It's beyond our imagination. The heat in the sun
is beyond our imagination, the millions of degrees of heat. We even feel
the heat of the sun millions of miles from it. Just how hot is it? Can
you imagine how hot the sun is? Even your imagination reaches its limit
doesn't it, it's so hot?
So imagine now how incredible that energy was that
the universe came from, that the whole thing evolved from. See, it's
beyond our imagination. You really have to stretch your imagination when
I explain these things. They are not just some things that can be
intellectually understood. They are things you really have to meditate
on and become one with -- a moment of creation with such incredible
energy, releasing such incredible power in the universe.
As these feelings evolved themselves from
knowingness, to doing-ness, and memory, because of the different levels
of the consciousness in the universe, there were different feelings
Knowingness can be three kinds. It can be from
knowledge, passion or ignorance. Doing can be three kinds, or memory can
be three kinds.
So these unit consciousnesses were getting evolved.
As they evolved, they resided in different levels of this primordial
soup, or whatever you want to call it. These unit consciousnesses were
in the levels they were, and they were with God in the very beginning.
So yes, in a sense all the unit consciousnesses were here forever and
they're going to be here forever.
See, nothing can be destroyed in this universe.
Whatever is here is going to be here forever. Our fear of destruction is
the fear of ego to die. It's ego that is afraid of being destroyed or
dying. Death doesn't really exist. How can we die?
Nothing can be destroyed. You can't destroy anything
in this universe. You can't add to it either. That's it! We are in it,
and we are going to stay in here forever. But ego is afraid. Ego is
afraid of destruction and death. And it's our ego that dies.
Some people, when they start meditating, feel they
are going to die. It is the fear of death. It's really not them that's
afraid, it's the ego. Ego sees it has to go because it has to be
replaced with truth (Self). Everything has been here and everything is
going to be here forever. So the answer to your question is, Yes,
everything was with God from the very beginning.
Question: The Bible says that they were in
darkness and God decided to help them. This period of time is much
longer than 12,000 years, so why does the
Eternal Divine Path begin after the destruction of the Atlanteans?
Maitreya: I don't know why the person who asked
this question got the impression that the
Eternal Divine Path was evolved after the destruction of the
Eternal Divine Path is from Spirit. This is a spiritual path. It
is something that already existed in Spirit, in the Soul, and God knew
it the moment He woke up from His long sleep or the beginning of
creation. This is the way to salvation. That is why it's called eternal.
It has been in eternity, that is why it is the
Eternal Divine Path.
It has been here forever, and it's going to be here
forever. It is in eternity. It doesn't have any beginning, it always was
in Spirit, it always was in Soul. That is the way to salvation. That is
the way the Spirit knows the way back home.
It did not evolve 12,000 years ago, it was here
before 12,000 years ago. Actually, the Lemurians and Atlanteans used to
Eternal Divine Path. That was why they progressed, prospered, and
became such great civilizations.
The Lemurians were the spiritual force behind the
Atlanteans. They were the priest class in that period, and they were
destroyed. There are many theories on why they were destroyed and how
they were destroyed. We don't want to get into that now. But they were
destroyed, and the Atlanteans lost their spiritual base.
The Atlanteans were the warriors and very scientific
people. They were scientific-minded. When the Lemurians were destroyed,
the Atlanteans didn't have that spiritual base any longer, and they fell
to the belief that they could do anything they want to, with science.
That's why they relied so much on chips and crystals.
Really chips are crystals. They reached a point where they thought they
could even extract life from the universe and use it for their
longevity, etc. They reached a point where they left God completely out
of their system, and that's when the destruction usually comes.
No matter what society we talk about, when they come
to this point that they believe in themselves, not in God, that is when
the destruction comes. And it usually comes from within themselves
No great civilization was destroyed from outside. It
was destroyed from within itself, it decayed from inside. Then some
outside force came and just pushed it a little bit. Since it was already
decayed within, it was ready to fall. The last push was from outside and
that was it.
Just read the history. Even if you don't remember the
Atlanteans, you remember the Grecian Empire, or Persian Empire, or
Assyrian Empire, or Roman Empire. If you study them you will see they
decayed from inside. Of course, eventually an outside force came and
inflicted the last blow, but the decay was always there.
So that is why it was decided to close the third eye
of the human for the last 12,000 years, to leave them almost alone and
see how they do. If we study the last 12,000 years of history we see
they didn't do a very good job. It was all destruction, war, famine,
etc. So now again we are on the brink of opening our eyes, our third
eyes. But that history has been a lesson for us.
That's why it's part of the Mission's teaching
that you don't throw out the old, or bring something new and say that
everything from the past is no good.
There are many notions from a lot of New Agers that
this is a New Age, and we have to throw out everything, including the
Bible and all the history. They say, "We know what we are doing,
we're God ourselves, we don't want those things, and we can do it
That's not true. History is a good lesson. The past
shows us a pattern that teaches us how the future should be built. The
last 12,000 years actually have been a lesson for humanity to learn
So the Eternal Divine Path did not evolve
12,000 years ago, it evolved from eternity, and the last 12,000 years
have been a lesson for humanity to learn from. Now, following the
Eternal Divine Path, with the lessons we learn from the past
history, surely will bring the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth.
Question: How did the Begotten Son of God realize
the path to salvation before the creation if there was no one else with
whom he could do a
Community of Light, or to sacrifice for, etc?
Maitreya: You have to realize, really when you're
talking about the First Begotten Son, you're not talking about the unit
consciousness. As you remember, God said, "Let there be Light." God sent
His Spirit to that darkness. So, the First Begotten Son really is the
Spirit of God manifested.
What is God? God is the Father and Mother. Where is
He? He's everywhere. Now, it's very hard for us to imagine a God that is
everywhere and everything, and He's Father and He's Mother. He's the
consciousness and the three gunas. In order for Him to manifest Himself
in the highest possible level, He projects His Spirit as the First
Begotten Son, or what a lot of religions call Messiah.
When He said, "Let there be Light," really He
projected Himself to the universe and was created as God manifested. And
because He's God manifested, and He's in the manifested world, He has to
go through a process. He already knew the
Eternal Divine Path, the only thing is He had to go through the
process and remember that
Eternal Divine Path later again. In a sense, that question sounds
like we are talking about another unit consciousness, as the First
Begotten Son, but really what we are talking about is the Spirit of God
in the manifested world.
About the question that there was no one there whom
he could sacrifice for, or create the
Communities of Light with, remember that the unit consciousnesses
were with God from the very beginning of creation. The only difference
was they were in different levels of consciousnesses. Some of them were
so low that they became stones. Some of them were so high that they
became the masters in the ethereal level, which we still have.
Many people do astral projection. They do astral
traveling in the ethereal level, and they go and meet these masters.
These masters are sitting there, they have their own universe, and they
talk with them and tell them what to do and what not to do. They are in
higher consciousness. They think they are God themselves, which they are
God is only One. That's the One Spirit, that's
Father. So see, they were already there. When the ethereal level was
created, these beings were already there for the Son to contact. He
contacted many of them, in the ethereal level especially, because they
were in a much higher consciousness than anything else in the universe.
Eventually some of them were guided, some of them joined him.
Some of them created the Communities of Light.
They had the Feast of Tabernacles together [all laughing]. Eventually
many were guided and they learned the
Eternal Divine Path from him.
That's why he is called the Eternal Priest of God,
because he eternally knows the
Eternal Divine Path. He taught them and they eventually became
one with him. They became his angels, or his workers, or his helpers,
etc. That is how he realized the importance of the
Communities of Light.
In the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna
that whenever the morality is low on earth, there is strife, and
humanity is lost, my Spirit, Krishna's Spirit, God's Spirit, rises on
earth and corrects the problem. And when it's corrected he leaves. He
says, "OK, I've done my job, good-by."
Question: How can we be sure that you are the
Messiah? We heard so much about false prophets, even several Maitreyas.
Maitreya: You see I had to prove to myself who I
am and what I am doing here. It was proved to me that this
Mission and teaching is the greatest revelation that has come to
earth, at least for the last 12,000 years.
I saw how you can unify the religions of the world
and bring the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth with this revelation. It was
revealed to me how prophecies are fulfilled through me. I am convinced.
These are the prophecies fulfilled through me. So I made it clear to
myself, and I reached a point that my faith is strong that what I am
doing is right.
I proved to myself this is true. Now, I don't have to
prove to anyone else that this is true, because that's what I had to do
for myself. I had to prove it to myself. So really it is up to you to
prove to yourself, that what I am saying is true.
This is your problem, not really a problem, but that
is how it works, because if you cannot prove this to yourself then you
don't have the faith. If you don't have the faith, then you cannot help,
because help comes from faith.
When you really truly believe and prove to yourself,
"Yes, this is it," you will have faith. Then you have the fire of The
Holy Ghost to help carry on God's Plan. These prophecies have come so
that the teaching of unification will come to earth. These teachings
have come that the Kingdom of Heaven should come to earth. These
teachings have come that Jews and Christians are waiting for a Messiah
to come from the East. Where I was born is east of Jerusalem. Buddhists
and Hindus are waiting for the Messiah to come from the West. Where I
was born is west of India and Tibet. "His birth name is going to be
Mohammed." My name is Mohammed. "He is also going to be called
I didn't call myself Maitreya, I was given the
name. I didn't even like the name when they gave it to me. I asked for
another name. I said, "No, No." All these other disciples had name like
Ishvara, which means controller of the universe, etc. I wanted to be
controller of the universe [all laughing]. This teacher gave me the name
Maitreya, it means compassionate. Who wants to be compassionate?
I wanted to be controller of the universe.
I didn't give any of these names to myself. So just
look at these things and also experience the truth. If it hits you, it
is right, it creates faith in you. If your Soul longs for this truth,
then you have to create this faith so it can be proven to you that that
is the truth. That is the question you have to answer, not me.
Also I was impressed in my consciousness to talk
about ourselves tonight a little bit. We are now becoming a family and a
community more and more. We also have to empathize, think, and meditate
in this family and community that we belong to. We have to extend our
family environment to this family and know that there is always support
in this family for you. We are no longer friends. We are sisters and
brothers to each other, in God.
If you have a problem it is the community's problem.
Also because you have an extended family, know that if you have any
problem in your small families, it is also the problem of the larger
family. You can always rely on one another. Actually that is what Christ
said. Christ said that is how they know you are my disciples by loving
one another. That's the only sign he gave for the world to know that you
are in the
Eternal Divine Path, with loving one another and being one.
If a door closes to you in one way, know that there
is another door which will open for you. God works in such a way that
whenever He closes a door He opens many others for you.
That's why we have to live everything in His Will. If
it is His Will, fine. Let it happen the way it wants to happen. If we
become very attached to the things we have, then we are trying to keep
this door open while we are missing the other door that's already there
So if there is something going and you see the energy
is no longer there, let it go. It's OK. Don't be attached to it. Just
love it. Meditate on it. Leave it to the Lord and say, "God, thank you
for this period that You had such a wonderful thing for me, I enjoyed
it, I am ready to let go of it." Just let it go and don't be afraid. You
will see, the other doors will be opened to you.
Also, as I said, this is the community. If a door
closed, the community is always there for the support of the members.
That's why we know we are following God's Will, by being One, loving one
another and supporting each other.
We are like little children, we want to have candy
every day. It's not good for us. If we eat too much candy we might
create diseases, spoil our teeth, and all those things. So He says, "No,
come and have some good vegetables once in awhile."
Sometimes God's work seems harsh to us because we are
so attached to the things we have. But if we really know Him, He is not
