FURTHER CLARIFICATIONS

Listen
Topics Covered
Read

In the new Format of “Further Clarifications” with Maitreya on the first Saturday of each month, we will be reading the Teachings in half-hour increments.  As we study together, there may be questions for deeper clarification from Maitreya especially while He is still with us.  Now is the time to receive those answers and clarifications.  Only the questions and answers will be posted in the FTP for download. 

The above links are for the December 1st session.  If anyone would like to volunteer to be a reader please send an email to: Reader@maitreya.org and your name will be added to the list.

There is now a list of volunteers and we will rotate readers each month during Further Clarifications.

  

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

“As Christ said, Do a good job but glorify God. That is why we say, ‘All thanks go to God.  It is because the moment we accept the thanks toward ourselves we create ego that accepts that thanks.  According to our teaching, ego is the culprit.”  MAITREYA 11-6-4 Conversations By Maitreya    Read more…


GLOSSARY WORD OF THE MONTH

Ego: the values related to the self.

 

NEW INSPIRATIONAL POEMS

Mareeka found the Mission Teachings while browsing Paltalk rooms, stopped into the “Let's Stop The Madness” room, heard the Truth and saw the Vision.  She has been inspired to write beautiful poems about the Teachings. Artists show another view from an intuitive place within and touch the intuitive in others!   Read more….

The Last Word

on my knees
i bow to The Father
with Reverence and Humilty
on my feet
i Serve Him
in the Community

 dying of the lower self
is no loss at all
Being born into Purity
given to the traveler
made ready for His Call

in the beginning
without an end
this is what Is heard
All answers
are in
the stillness
between
One Unified
Word

 

This is a Song of the Lord

Thanks Be to God

Thanks Be through Maitreya

GREATER AWARENESS OF THE TRUE MEANING OF THE LOTUSTICA (SWASTIKA)

CNN VIDEO ON SWASTIKA

Despite the common misconception that the swastika is ‘evil' or stands for hate, this reporter shows the original intent was actually good!

 

Some teachings about Lotustica from the Mission:

 

Swastika:  Swastika is an ancient symbol which has been used in different cultures all though the earth. In each culture it has assumed many different meanings. Until World War II, it had mostly a positive meaning. However, after World War II, after it was used by Hitler as the symbol of Nazi Germany, it was projected as a negative sign.”  THOTH, SUPPLEMENTS

 

 

SECOND LIFE PROJECT 

Direct Link to Mission Land

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dzalarhons/116/135/112 

 

With the Temple completed, work was continued on the rest of the grounds and structures.  To the north of the Temple is a Hall of Satsangs.  While this may be included in the Community House, it was separated in SL.  As was just mentioned, there is also a Community House to the south of the Temple.  Feel free to explore these as you wish.

The next addition in SL will be the inclusion of the Ark of the Covenant.  This will be constructed as God demanded in Exodus Chapter 25.  The dimensions will not be accurate, since it is difficult to know what was truly a cubit of that time and how to convert that into meters, but the ratio will be correct.  To assist visitors, there will be another slide viewer added to explain these new additions and one alone for the Ark.

We are always looking for ways to improve our presence in SL and the next step will be the addition of new land(s).  There is one parcel that is now surrounded by the Mission grounds that we will approach with an offer to purchase.  Also, there is a parcel that is next to the Community House that is up for sale; it currently has a fountain and a labyrinth that will stay with the property.  With these, the Mission is continually expanding the presence and outreach.  Maybe in the upcoming year, we will be able to give Satsangs in SL!

If you care to assist in this project but are concerned about learning new programs or time constraints, have you considered becoming an SL member?  While there is a free basic membership, a premium membership at a cost of $72.00 a year would result in you receiving a weekly stipend of L$300 a week.  Note: L$ is Linden dollars, yes they have their own currency in SL.)  If you were moved to join as a premium member, you may also be moved to donate some of your weekly stipend to the Mission for continued outreach.

[NOTE:  even being a free member allows anyone to purchase Linden dollars for a small fee (approx. $4.05 = 1,000 Linden dollars) and donate to the Mission Donation Box].

Currently, the Mission in SL has spent several thousands of Linden dollars in buying land and objects to improve the setting.  This does not include the recurring monthly fees in maintaining our presence there, which is not being paid for by Mission funds.  In time we hope that the SL activities will be self-sustaining and hopefully profitable enough so that a true COL can be constructed and maintained.

NEW JERUSALEM PROJECT RESEARCH

ZION NATIONAL PARK – UTAH, USA

A trip was made by Hosanna to Zion National Park in southern Utah to investigate the area for future outreach of Mission activities and to determine the possibility of establishing a Community of Light.  I personally have never seen such beauty in creation.  At times the views were so spectacular, it could take one's breath away and at the same time, cause one to call to God and all His Glory.

It seems there are approximately 3 million visitors from around the world who visit Zion each year, which would make for a great outreach for the Mission.  Also, what I found to be curious was that in the different gift shop/tourist attractions, I did not find one mention of God or religion, especially since there are several landmarks throughout the park that have a reference to God and/or Scriptures.  Just for an example some of the parks landmarks are named – Abraham Peak, Isaac Peak, Mount Moroni, North and South Guardian Angel, Guardian Angel Pass, The Inclined Temple, and Cathedral Mountain.

In trying to determine what would be best for the Mission, we discussed in some detail a few of the resorts in the area and discussed one in particular that sits on 3,000 acres.  Their determination to use the lands to ensure that nature is preserved and having an area set up for the Native American aspects seems to be a good fit for the Mission.  If it is possible, the Mission may acquire a small portion of the land for our use.

The next step will be to approach the resort and begin the dialogue.  If anyone has experience in such matters, please contact the Mission for more information.  The Mission hopes to set up an area for future Feast celebrations, and a spiritual retreat.  While these are just some ideas, anything is possible with God moving us forward.

A BEAUTIFUL TESTIMONIAL FROM UNUS

EXCERPTED FROM TEXT - READ THE FULL STORY  

… But my heart was pumping in the rhythm that a racehorse runs. So I lie down and start breathing to calm my heart down.  I almost fell asleep and then something almost told me that how come you never searched “Maitreya” on the Internet.  My eyes were wide open and I was almost shocked.  Really, how come I never Googled “Maitreya”?  I have searched everything on the Internet but never looked up “Maitreya”.  So I immediately got up and started my computer.  I was typing “Maitreya” in the search box in Google home page and I was so excited.  And what happened? … READ THE FULL STORY

Comments on writing a Testimonial

Unus: It was amazing for me to see the Eternal Divine Path unfold after finishing and reading the essay.  Well, it was like a great meditation for me.

Almost like observing my life from the outside and noticing the way how God has been preparing me all this time.  I was able to see my true longings and even though it (my life) looked chaotic, how beautifully it was guided towards purity and answers.  I was able to see the pattern more clearly, see the mistakes or the pitfalls and the necessary lessons to be learned to overcome these.  Therefore I really enjoyed writing it and noticing how the Eternal Divine Path is embedded into our lives and into everything in this universe.  Writing a testimonial was very uplifting!

 


SUGGESTIONS OF HOW TO STOP FOLLOWING MAN-MADE HOLIDAYS


  1. Educate yourself and know the Truth and decide what to follow.  Christmas is relatively a new phenomena dating to Druid origins and fertility rituals.  At one point it was a rowdy time of drunken abandon and sexual promiscuity (sounds like Christmas parties of today!)  Jeremiah 10, Leviticus 23,
    THOTH, Essays 1 – Feasts and Holy Days
  2. Begin before the holidays starting to explain to family and friends the origins of Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc.  Google them!  There is astounding information online:  search:  Origins of Christmas; Saturnalia; etc.
  3. Also include secular holidays in the explanation, which only relate to political, national, or cultural events of each country and create a division.  We are One World, One Humanity!   A Holy Day is for the purpose of the whole world to worship One God.
  4. Reassure the family – you still love them and do not wish to offend, but if the purpose is to truly worship God, then it is best to follow the Way He commanded.   Any other ideas are just man-made traditions and they are fooling themselves.  These holidays are directly opposite of God's Laws and Ways.   
  5. Be discerning – time, place and situation.   Sometimes even Truth given at a wrong time or place or situation, can be counter-productive.
  6. Keep a focus and stay one-pointed. No one knows the whole truth until the Seventh Seal (THOTH).   There are many confusing theories, books,  ‘prophets', preachers, rabbis, mullahs, etc. who appeal to the emotions or intellect of the people and mislead the very Elect.  (Matthew 24:24)  Humanity is in the grips of desperately wanting to “feel good” and falls for the emotional attraction of the things, which feel good but are not necessary good for them – the original temptation!   Dogma – What seems right!
  7. Freedom to worship God is a basic feeling for most people.  You could ask:  “Do you love God?  Then let's worship and Glorify Him.”  We can appeal to any follower of any religion by saying:  The same God you worship is the same God we worship.
  8. Most people who follow holidays do so from a sense of tradition, habit, foods, family pressure, giving and getting gifts.
  9. As an alternative, share with others they can still do these things!!  Decorate your house for Feast of Tabernacles, give gifts during FOT, and create great foods and celebration during FOT.  Show that these things in and of themselves are not bad, but simply spiritualize them.  The Feast of Tabernacles is a great Celebration done in the right way Glorifying God!
  10. Live the Truth:  Be above reproach from God.  Fear Him (not friends, family or society).
  11.  Politely do not accept invitations to holiday parties and be an example of your beliefs.  If the moment allows, use the opportunity to state the Truth or offer information for education.  As Ghandi said:  “I have to be the change I want to see in this world.”
  12.  Do something that affirms your Faith and Truth.  Study THOTH, Mission website, be inspired, know who you are, or remember and contemplate when you first heard the Message.  Keep the Holy Days and Sabbath and spiritual practices!
  13. Connect with each other and become a support network within and for the Mission of Maitreya.

 

Little by little, drip by drip,,,,,, eventually the Truth is understood by all!
