How I Met Maitreya
to share my story about meeting Maitreya, I need to start back, way back in
my life. First, I always felt that there was
more in life than the mundane talk and going ons that filled each day. I also must have known deep inside
that the return of the Messiah was imminent, in my lifetime. I remember sitting in Sunday school
listening to the teacher talk about the one who would come to earth to bring
unification. My heart raced and
I felt very excited. I knew his
words were the truth.
me skip two and half decades to the time I first heard of Maitreya’s
presence on earth. I had a friend and spiritual teacher
that I used to visit fairly regularly.
One day when I was visiting she told me, “He’s here.” “Who’s here?” I replied. “Maitreya, the Messiah, the one we’ve
been looking for”, came the answer.
Well, I hadn’t really been looking but it sure was nice to have been in
the right place at the right time.
I didn’t just take her word for it.
I went into meditation and asked the spirit of God within, “Is this really
true? Is the Messiah here? Is
Maitreya the One?” The answer
was a resounding “YES!!” In
fact it was one of the clearest messages I have ever received when
her home with a copy of a book called
The Plan, from the Mission of Maitreya, Maitreya’s home base and
organization. It explained both the spiritual aspect of the teaching he’d
brought to earth (in The Light) and the Plan for the manifestation of the
Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. It
was incredible. I felt I was
holding the map to the whole universe in my hands! I began to correspond with Maitreya
and the Mission at this point.
went to a workshop in St. Petersburg, Florida where my friend and a man from
Canada were scheduled to present the Mission and its teaching.
The excitement within me was astounding as I listened to an explanation
of this teaching. It showed how all religions had been sent to earth by the
Lord and that they were part of a path, which could be followed to reach
Divinity. We were all brothers
and sisters under One God! Not
only did Maitreya’s explanation make sense to me but also His Grace could be
felt during the entire time of the gathering.
knew that I needed and wanted to go to Rio Rancho to visit the Mission of Maitreya and to meet
Maitreya. I felt very strongly that if I could
but look into Maitreya’s eyes that I would know for sure (dispel any trace
of doubt that I still had) he was the one.
To my delight and horror that is exactly what happened. The reason I say to my horror is
because once you know that Maitreya is the one and his teaching is the Truth
come from God, then you have the awesome responsibility of sharing that. But I was determined and share I did!!
That really turned the fear to such delight especially because I learned
more each time I shared with others.
So this is my story of faith in the words and teaching that God has given to
His Son, Maitreya. And for me the story
