Finding the Messiah
The prophecies were
being fulfilled and that created a great desire to find the Messiah. The prophecy that was the most
impressive was, “knowledge shall increase.” In my lifetime knowledge was
increasing in leaps and bounds.
In the category of transportation alone, we had gone from traveling by
horse and buggy to men traveling by spaceship to the moon. “Knowledge shall increase.”
climate of expectation of the Anointed One being on earth was building. So many people were talking about the
coming of Maitreya. Of
course, there were many ideas about how to recognize the real Maitreya and
how he would return.
raised a Christian many of my ideas about how the Christ would come were
still grounded in some of the misinterpretations of the Scriptures that had
been and still are accepted by Christians.
Having left the main line churches many years before this point, there was
still so much that had not yet been unlearned.
looking for Maitreya I wound up being present at many lectures, such as
those of Benjamin Crème. The first time that Benjamin Crème
spoke at the Unity Church in Miami, I was there in the audience. I met the group who arranged his visit
and took care of his needs while he was in Florida. Later I joined their transmission
group and invited many others to join also. I was not convinced about the Maitreya
he proclaimed who was supposed to be living in London, yet it seemed like he
could be some kind of link to the real Maitreya.
late in 1981 or early in 1982 Ben told us that Maitreya would emerge in the
Spring of 1982. His organization, Tara Center in
California, placed ads in many of the major cities of the world that, “The
Christ is now among us… and his presence will be known by all in the Spring
of 1982.” Well in the Spring of
1982 the Maitreya who was supposed to be living in London did not make his
appearance. Ben told us that
humanity was not yet ready. So
we all continued to do our transmission meditations and attend his lectures. All this time I was learning and was
slowly able to let go of previously held false doctrines. However, at the same time I was
accepting some new age teachings that turned out to be not only false
doctrines but also ego builders.
This learning and changing process continued
until one day in the Spring of 1983 a friend said that he had seen an ad
placed by the Mission of Maitreya in Albuquerque, New Mexico and had ordered
a book from them. When he said
the name Joseph Emmanuel I was very strongly impressed that the Maitreya for
whom I had been searching was this same Joseph Emmanuel.
“That is him.” My friend asked, “That is who?” I said, “That is Maitreya.” He said, “He can’t be Maitreya because
Crème said that Jesus is in Italy.” I answered, “I don’t know about that but
this man is the Maitreya for whom I have been searching.”
THOTH, The Holiest Of The Holies, arrived and as soon as my friend finished
reading this Scripture he asked if I would like to read it.
I was delighted and eagerly accept the offer.
read THOTH, my friend invited Maitreya (Joseph Emmanuel) to speak at an
upcoming convention, Planetary Initiatives For The World We Choose that took
place in Canada in May of 1983.
He also wanted to bring Maitreya to Florida for a lecture at a center in
Hollywood. He asked me that if Maitreya accepted
to come to Florida would I provide he and his wife with the room they would
need in my home, and help him to get the word out. This was gladly done.
Now I was
reading THOTH. I found so much truth in this
Scripture. It spoke about the
Communities of Light, an idea that was so dear to my heart. There was also the teaching about the
Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth.
This had to be a part of the teaching of the Messiah for as the Christ 2,000
years ago he had taught his disciples to pray, “Thy Kingdom come on earth as
it is in heaven.” THOTH showed
the unification of religions through the teaching of
The Greatest Sign. Of course, there were some other
things I read in THOTH that were hard for me to accept because of the false
doctrines that were still strong in me at that time. Those teachings were placed on
the back burner. There was
plenty of truth in the pages of THOTH to keep me moving forward with the
Mission of Maitreya.
things happened over the next few years.
By the Grace of God my life completely changed.
Then in 1987 I clearly heard the call to come to New Mexico and be a
part of this wonderful Mission that God has revealed to humanity through
Maitreya. I accepted the call
and have been with the Mission here in New Mexico ever since.
