am more and more attracted to the mission yet I have a number
Healthy skepticism is good (God).
As a former Bahai, i left over the covenant. Shoghi died, Mason
Remey said he was the new guardian and there is evidence that he may
have been correct, and his alleged successor, joel marengella is in
We have invited Baha’i’s (the main branch) and Mr. Marengella (it
could have been the Remey himself!) to come to see this new
Revelation and see that God has a greater Plan
than Baha’i Faith, etc. They have not responded!
The arguments of them are reasonable,
It might be reasonable, but it sure is not based on the Words of
and also Baha’u’llah said his system was great and unstopable with
his local houses of justice and universal house of justice, and yet
it seems to fail. He promised divine guidance and that the world
would be unified by the end of the 20th century. His temples are
nine sided. In short there are so many reasons to suspect that the
Bahai Faith would last a long time, yet it seems to be failing.
Where is the guidance promised it? The Hands of the Cause who
said God decided BADA about the guardianship I feel were in grave
error. The prayers, the laws, and more all seem top perfect. Yet
some disunity is there. The Universal House of Justice seems to be
in error and even oppressive at times as are some of their
subordinate institutions. Yet some Bahais feel that maybe Bahaullah
knew he would fail or did he simply make errors? A new prophet was
or is expected by some Bahais to arise from the New Mexico/Arizona
area. Maitreya seems to fill that. Abdul Baha did also say
that the Bab had failed. How do we know when or even if a prophet is
infallible and yet can make errors as the BAB did about religious
warfare and killing unbelievers.
As you become more familiar with
teachings you will see that Baha’i Faith is the only revelation and
religion that God says it is not perfect. It is similar to
human progress in spiritual world. When they reach the Fifth
level (Ethereal level) it is so beautiful that they think they have
found the ultimate Truth, but they have not. There are two
more states to progress to reach the Seventh State or Perfection.
So it is no wonder that
Baha’i’s and their leaders are realizing that Baha’i’s will fail and are expecting the
new Major Manifestation at this time. Indeed this is closer to
God’s Revelations and Prophesies than what the main Baha’i Faith
Maitreya not only Fulfills this expectation from the Baha’i’s but
also from all religions. He indeed is the Caliph the Muslims
are waiting for, the Christ that Christians are awaiting, the
Messiah for Jews, etc. This all humanity has to understand,
see, accept and come together around it as One!
However, I am unable to understand the predicted reincarnation
of Maitreya a number of times and no more prophets.
Not any more prophets, but no Major Manifestation for 1000 years.
There might be some minor
prophets who might come and help the understanding
of Maitreya’s teachings in a greater degree, clarify some part which
people might have a problem with
and/or bring the human focus to
part(s) which are necessary for a specific time, etc. In 1000
years there will be a minor fall of man. Maitreya shall return
again at that time.
This is based on the Scripture and the Words of God. God
Predicted that Maitreya shall come as the thief of the night.
Then He also has Revealed that He will come as the King of the Kings
and the Conqueror, etc. These predictions seem contradictory.
How can the King come
as a thief of the night? It can be easily explained if he
comes in different incarnations where each incarnation fulfills one
of these predictions. We also know that Hindus believe that the Kalki Avatar
will come in three incarnations to fulfill His Mission. So put
two and two together and you will see that it makes sense that
Maitreya will come as a “thief”
in one incarnation (this one,
which is very quite). He shall come again in the next life
which will be “implementation.” And He shall come one more
time, which is the time of “execution!”
In this life time He is gathering the Elects, quietly!
Abdul-Baha said that for the next five hundred thousand years
prophets would come under the shadow of Bahá'u'lláh in that they
would reveal truths of ever more unity. Does Maitreya say that HE
will return a number of times or that several different persons with
the same prophetic spirit will return? After the 1000 year
culmination and the next and last fall wont there be occasional
prophets as long as mankind exists? I have a hard time
thinking that there will be no prophets at all any longer. The
Bahais do say that some prophets will not come for a long time
perhaps more than a few thousand years, but human evolution will not
remember that we have to rely on the Words of God not others,
especially those whom God clearly has said their religion is not
perfect and most probably will make many mistakes. God surely
is saying that His Mystery will finish after the Seventh Angel
(Maitreya) and there will be three incarnations (He might still come
back, with other incarnations, to help, but He will not come back as
a Major Manifestation). There will be 1000 years after this
Revelation, and then there will be the final fall and Salvation of
Now what will happen to humanity after that: Only God Knows!
was never able to accept the type of successor search as exists with
the Dalai Lama.
Ours is not quite the same as Buddhists.
We have been instructed to look for Maitreya as possibly a son from
His son. However, we are also instructed not to limit our
search and look for any possibilities. God surely will Guide
those who will be trusted with this Job.
Muhammad, Baha'u'llah, and Abdul Baha said there was intelligent
life on other planets and mankind would meet them when god willed
and the time was ripe. He also said that every star had planets and
every planet had some type of life. We have to be careful then to
make sure we dont harm or get harmed by alien life as we find it in
our exploration and search for resources. Genetic science and atomic
manipulation would seem to let us be able to use our planets
resources more easily so that we might not need to get many
resources from other planets and systems.
God desired to scatter man all over the earth. There are
un-inhabited worlds in the space that can be used for extracting
resources and also populating them. This, however, should be
done with great care and non-violently
(peacefully and respectfully, etc.). There also might be more
technologically advanced beings out there, but not necessarily in
consciousness, that might desire to harm us. So caution and
diligence is necessary.
noticed however that Maitreya declared in 1982 exactly one vahid (nineteen years) after the formation of what I felt was an improperly
constituted Universal House of Justice. I assume he accepts that the
beauty of Bahai prayers and meditations can be used in the
Communities of light. How do former Bahai now in the mission think
the Tablet of The Holy Mariner relates to perhaps Maitreya?
That is interesting that a vahid passed after what is considered “an
improperly constituted Universal House of Justice” (which we agree
that it is not what Baha’u’llah envisioned). God indeed has
left no doubt who Maitreya is for those who seek the Ultimate Truth.
All beautiful and correct (Truths) can be supplemental to
In the communities of light there is no mention of any sexuality in
the renunciates. Certainly men, for instance, cannot remain without
sexual needs which for health alone need to be addressed either
personally or with some one. The prophet of Islam said that self
relief, to put it gently, had no harm. Of course a spiritualized
person will have much control over his needs, but never 100 percent
at least without some medical intervention. Also people may have
occasional failures between single men and women and, I would think,
even in enlightened times this would happen once in awhile.
In general Maitreya says there are topics that should not become an
issue at all. He says your bedroom is your bedroom, I do not
talk about my bedroom and I do not want to know about yours!
In general, the accepted and Godly setup is
between one man and one woman (couples) in the Communities of Light
(COL). As you said, as we become more spiritual, the more
control we should have over our physical body and our desires.
Those who do not live in the COLs might have more choices but that
is their decision and they should not make an issue of it.
Indeed as the Communities accept this approach more, the other kind
of life styles will not be a problem and will decrease so the Godly
style will prevail, to a greater degree. People will realize
being with God and experiencing Him/Her/It is much greater than any
body gratification and/or pleasure.
The idea of social responsibility is important also. For example
what of people who become handicapped, or so poor or ill as not to
be able to function or be independent?
The compassion of the COLs will take care of the weak,
handicapped, etc. They (weak and handicapped, etc.) also
should be responsible and would not have unreasonable demands on
Community resources that might weaken the Community. Educating
people to sacrifice for the greater good
of the Community is the focus for all in the Kingdom, not what each
individual can have without regard to others. All these minor
decisions are left to each Community and the benevolent leaders that
will emerge from the COLs will consider the Will of God in each
situation and will do FINE.
How does one discipline children without hurting them or on the
other hand making them unable to accept any responsibility?
In the COLs children will be most nurtured and Guided to become
productive members of the Community/society. They will be
taught to follow the Eternal Divine Path, and God. They will
be encouraged to realize who they are, what talents they have and
encouraged to become who they have been created to be, etc.
Again the details are up to each community. The general idea
and Guidelines are given by Maitreya for them to follow.
incentive purely egotistical or can it be a source or human
achievement as in exploration and so on?
If the Spirit of God comes through, it surely will be an inspiration
and will bring great pride and fulfillment to individual.
The discoveries of science are even more rapid than in the 20th
century. Dark matter is now not thought of as the cause of expansion
of the universe, rather now it is thought that gravitational leakage
and ripples on the space time fabric cause it. Does that mean
that the universe will die or is it going to be reformed or
Maitreya said it a long time ago that dark matter is not dark at all.
It is ether that all things reside in and it holds the universe
Again as you will become more familiar with the
you will realize that this creation is not the natural state of
being. It constantly breaks down and strives to go to its
Essence (God). So decay is built into the universe and so it
will eventually overtake it. However, until then, the black
holes are the recycling mechanism to recycle and rejuvenate matter
in the universe. Eventually everything will go to sleep until
the next creation!
Also we now know that one atom stimulated in a laboratory can
stimulate another one at some distance thus showing a very deep
connection within the entire universe. Ideas on the speed of gravity
may replace the speed of light as a marker of some type are being
formed. Wave theory shows a blur between probability and solid
matter. Solid matter seems now to be pure illusion. Even time
travel seems possible.
Scientists indeed are closer to God and in realizing Him than most
religions on earth. They, however, cannot go beyond their
scientific discipline to call the eventually unified state God.
So they will know much but the ultimate truth will come to them if
they meditate and realize the Spirit.
Eckankar and the sound and light religions state that deep
meditation by all the ancient masters show that at its deepest they
can only say that god is
There is some question whether Eckankar was in some way not true but
yet its ideas are valid even if borrowed. They say that HU is the
name/sound of God and is the sustaining sound of the universe. Is it
ego to want to know everything there is to know while realizing that
there is no end or no beginning to knowing?
Actually it is Hung, which is a part of our Universal Mantra (Haree
Om Shrii Hung, Om Nam Kevalam). Greater than that is the
vibration of the soundless, The Holy Name! It is the only Name
of God (vibration in the universe) that is Revealed to the
disciples, by Maitreya, in Mission Initiations.
Perhaps in the future abortions will not be thought of as needed
even for genetic disease. Does the mission support genetic
manipulation in agriculture and human genetic disease? Does it leave
abortion at present up to the persons concerned or is there another
position without it being dogma?
Abortion should not be taken lightly. Couples should discuss
the possibility of it if they ever came to the conclusion that they
want to consider such an act. It should be avoided and
alternatives should be explored before this step is taken.

Jesus or Esa. These events have nothing to do with the truth of the
mission of Esa, and I think have made Esa seem less human and caused
his worship and thus helped corrupt Christianity

else seems so reasonable in the mission. IT really DOES make sense.
I have left the room on over night and have felt something unusual
within me, but I would be dishonest to not ask whatever was on my
mind. I have made too many errors in religion and life not to be as
sure as I can be if possible. I always regretted not being alive at
the time of a prophet. Now that it seems that this regret may have
been premature, I am anxious and also fearful to ask such questions.
It almost seems presumptuous. Yet they would be in my mind even if
unasked. I ask compassion for the asking of these questions and ask
for privacy of this email address and name.

However, it does expect those who eventually see the Vision to
Follow. So take your time and make sure you are satisfied with
the answers and the Revelation. Realize that it is indeed from
God, and then come and Follow.
I can resolve these questions I will humbly ask for initiation.
