Share International magazine cover for 2010This is an abridged version of
Share International magazine.
Through these electronic files, the magazine Share International makes available a compilation of its contents.

The magazine is published monthly, except bimonthly in January/February and July/August of each year.

Rallying call!

It has come to our notice that more and more people are receiving our information from the website alone, and thus forgoing the small cost of subscribing to Share International magazine.

Not everyone can, or does, use the internet, and it is essential to have an outer, physical expression, which can display with photographs, the events of which we speak. That means there has to be a magazine, which of course requires a lot of work from volunteers, and a lot of money to produce. There may be a notion that Hierarchy dishes out money for this work, but it is not the case. Subscriptions to Share International are an essential part of maintaining our work and reaching the public. The cost of the subscription is kept as low as possible, the magazine is not subsidised by advertisements and printing and postal charges are mounting all the time.

Surely we would all agree that all those who seriously believe in this work would want to support the magazine, whether or not they read the information on the internet.

Thank you for your support.

Man's responsibility

by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme, 13 March 2011

From the earliest times, mankind has feared the natural disturbances of our planetary home. Cataclysms of unimaginable ferocity have destroyed huge areas of the Earth’s surface over and over again. This fact is hard for many to accept and raises, always, grave doubts in the minds of many religious people about the veracity of God’s love for humanity. How can we believe in a loving God who allows thousands of people to be killed in earthquakes, tsunamis and the rest? Were humanity to understand their own involvement in such planetary destruction, they could play a significant role in preventing its occurrence.

The Earth’s crust, as it has evolved over the ages, is not single and evenly spread around the world. As is well known, it takes the form of various plates at different depths, which overlap and are in relatively constant movement. Countries and cities which lie on or near the plate edge, or fault-lines, are consequently subjected to earthquakes and, if near oceanic regions, tsunamis. It is not a question of God’s love failing humanity but of seismic pressure which must be released. What, we may ask, causes seismic pressure to grow to such a destructive extent?

Elemental Devas (or Angelic forces) oversee the mechanism by which these colossal energies act or are modified. The Earth is a living Entity and responds to the impact of these forces in various ways. One major source of impact comes directly from humanity. As humanity, in its usual competitive way, creates tension through wars, and political and economic crisis – that is, when we are out of equilibrium, so too do the Devic lives go out of equilibrium. The inevitable result is earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. We are responsible.

How then to end this cycle of destruction? Humanity has the means but so far lacks the will to change. We must see ourselves as One, each man and woman a reflection of the Divine, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of the One Father. We must banish war for ever from this Earth; we must share the resources of this planet which belong to all. We must learn to live in harmony with the planet itself to know a future of harmony with each other.

Maitreya has come to show men the way, and to galvanize man’s actions. Across the globe, men are finding their voice and calling for justice and freedom. Many have died to claim their right, God given, to freedom and justice. His call is for all men and women everywhere to see themselves as He sees them, as Divine, Sons and Daughters of Divinity Itself.

Q. What can the United Nations best do to help the people of Libya?

A. Create a no-fly-zone immediately, then send a UN Peacekeeping force to stop all the violence on both sides. The situation in Libya is different from elsewhere in the Middle East. It is not groups of peaceful protestors being shot at and bombed by a heavily armed army with tanks and mortars and planes. This is a civil war between the people, lightly armed or even unarmed, and a ruthless dictator’s professional army with tanks, etc. Only a no-fly-zone will limit the ability of the regime to slaughter its own people. No more time should be lost in taking this minimal action to help the Libyan people.

[N.B. The no-fly-zone was implemented shortly after Share International’s April issue went to press.]

Q. Maitreya has said that we are our “brother’s keeper” – does that mean that the world would be justified in establishing a no-fly zone over Libya – despite the further casualties which will probably ensue?

A. Yes. A no-fly-zone, properly enforced, would surely reduce casualties.

Q. What is the relation between the recent events in the Middle East and the appearance and support of Maitreya and the Hierarchy of Masters?

A. The people of the Middle East, and of the world in general, are beginning to find their voice. This is in response to the ideas of Maitreya and was predicted by Him.

Q. The 8.9 magnitude earthquake which hit the north-eastern part of Japan on Friday 11 March 2011 caused great loss of life and huge destruction. Nevertheless, was there Maitreya’s divine intervention?

A. Yes, without which the suffering would have been far greater.

Q. It was reported that there was only 20-30 minutes between the earthquake and the time the tsunami reached shore. The Japanese were prepared for tsunamis of smaller scale, but never before experienced a tsunami of such magnitude, and a lot of people got caught. The death toll is still climbing. (1) Did those people who were swept away by the tsunami receive any divine intervention? (2) Did they suffer?

A. (1) Yes, many more were saved. (2) Strangely, no. Maitreya has the power to remove fear and pain.

Q. Having read answers in Share International over the years about the ways in which Maitreya and the Masters help people during disasters I hope you can assure readers that the same is true once again in Japan and also Libya?

A. Yes indeed, within Karmic Law, the Masters are always first on the scene with Their help.

Q. When will the weapons trade stop – supposing it can be stopped?

A. When mankind renounces war for ever. That time is nearer than most people think.

Q. In February 2011, New Zealand was hit by a magnitude 6.3 earthquake which devastated the central part of Christchurch city. Japan and New Zealand are on the same earthquake zone and similar geographical condition. Was there any connection between those two earthquakes?

A. Yes, there is major seismic activity taking place in the whole Pacific ring. We should not be surprised by further earthquake and/or tsunami activity elsewhere in that area.

Q. On 22 February 2011 at 12.51pm there was a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. Unfortunately, it took many lives and many of the beautiful old buildings were destroyed. Up to a third of the business district will have to be rebuilt, not to mention many private residences. On a positive note, it has been inspirational to see the co-operation between New Zealanders, the government, and from many countries who have sent teams of people for the rescue/recovery effort, as well as donations of money. Is this co-operative effort partly motivated by the impression of the Aquarian energies of synthesis?

A. Not especially. It does reflect the natural action of New Zealanders.

Q. Can this be seen as an example of how countries will support each other after the Day of Declaration?

A. Yes, I would expect so.

Q. Regarding the Christchurch earthquake, are you able to confirm what percentage was due to natural earth movements, and what percentage was karmic?

A. It was not karmic but the result of natural earth movements. Christchurch is built very close to two major fault-lines.

Q. Concerning the horrific earthquake and tsunami which has just taken place in Japan can you say if it is karmic or comes from natural causes?

A. The Japanese earthquake and the recent one in New Zealand had natural causes, to do with the movements of the Pacific Plates in the so-called ‘Ring of Fire’ earthquake zone of the Pacific. If you read the Master’s Article in this present issue of Share International however, you will see that there is a karmic causation, stemming from humanity as a whole, acting in destructive ways. If humanity was less destructive, so too would be earthquake, volcanic and cyclonic activity.

Q. I would like to ask a question about what is happening now in Egypt and in North Africa, and in some parts of the Middle East. Maitreya says that “power will come from the people”. (1) Is this “people’s power” that we are now witnessing in Egypt, the kind of power that Maitreya talks about? (2) Will this kind of movement now begin to spread across the globe with more strength, as we move (as your Master says) nearer the Day of Declaration?

A. (1) Yes. (2) Yes.

Q. Was the final resignation of President Hosni Mubarak due to pressure from the American government as some commentators have suggested?

A. No.

Q. As the world media is aware, there have recently been thousands of bird and fish deaths. Conventional explanations have been offered that few people would accept. One of the less conventional explanations is that the magnetic poles may be shifting rapidly and allowing invasion of our lower atmosphere by Hydrogen Cyanide clouds which would instantaneously kill birds. This doesn’t explain the fish deaths though. Another explanation is atmospheric experiments by Project HAARP. It is obvious that something that may affect all life may be in process.

My question to Share International is this: from the viewpoint of the spiritual hierarchy, what is the primary cause or causes of this phenomenon? This is very important and I would like to see this addressed on your website. Surely there must be someone in your vast network that has a clue as to what is going on?

A. According to the information from the Spiritual Hierarchy, the magnetic poles are not shifting. The Masters say the causes are climatic and result from the vast quantities of torrential rain in various parts of the world. These rains not only cause floods but bring down many very toxic pollutants, including nuclear radiation, released into the atmosphere by every nuclear power station.

Swami Premananda
Premananda's lingam

During a special ceremony at the Sri Premananda Ashram after His passing, a devotee, when clearing away some flowers, discovered a large lingam within the flowers, covered in kumkum (a paste). Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the egg-shaped lingam was manifested by Swami Premananda. Officials at the Ashram reported: “Swamiji has yet again shown us that he is indeed very much present with us.”

Share International is very sad to report the passing of the great Spiritual Avatar Swami Premananda, on 21 February 2011 in India, after many years of illness and unjust incarceration in an Indian prison. As readers will remember, Share International has regularly reported news of Swami Premananda and His work, and sends its condolences to the many devotees around the world mourning this great loss. Swami Premananda said of Himself: “Sai Baba is Sai Baba, a great Avatar, I am who I am, an ordinary man who does not know why he has been endowed with a number of divine powers. It is true that I can heal people, materialize things and that I do have extraordinary powers, but these come from God. By myself I can do nothing.”




High level support

Dear Editor,

On Saturday 26 February 2011, the day of the Barcelona lecture, we came out from the hotel in the early morning after breakfast for a short walk. The lecture was to be held in the evening in this hotel. As we stopped at a traffic light, we saw on the opposite side of the road, coming in our direction, a young black man, walking easily but briskly. He held something in his left hand and raised his right arm, pointing forward, with something in his grasp. He wore ordinary clothes and a very colourful hat. He stopped at the traffic light on the other side of the road. We realized he was talking and, to our surprise, that what he held in his right raised hand was an invitation card to our lecture, with Benjamin Creme’s photo on it. When the traffic lights turned green, he crossed the street; we waited on our side, and when he had just reached us, we asked if he was looking for something. He didn’t seem to notice us but continued talking with his right arm pointing forward with the card in his hand as he continued on his way toward the hotel. It was a very unusual encounter. Was it just an encounter with a joyful young man or something else? Thank you.

H.L. and C.F., Barcelona, Spain.

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the ‘young black man’ was the Master Jesus.)



Dear Editor,

On 4 March 2011 a co-worker and I were on the Share Switzerland booth at the Lebenskraft Fair, in Zurich, when a rather tall man came along wearing a black leather coat and a rucksack. He said that he did not know much about Maitreya. At the end of the discussion we did not believe him anymore. He knew about the Theosophical Association and other philosophies. During the discussion, which lasted about 10 minutes, he said that this was the best booth of the fair. When leaving he said we should keep on doing the work. Within seconds he disappeared. After the discussion, my colleague and I were quiet for a moment. I then asked her who this man may have been. She replied: “Do you feel it?” After a short moment, I also felt a kind of love in my heart as rarely before, hard to describe. For at least 15 minutes, we were not able to talk. No visitor from the fair approached us during that time. We felt an almost holy love in our hearts. I saw this man twice later from far away. Who was he?

C.W., Bonstetten, Switzerland.

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the man was Maitreya.)

Seeing is believing?

Dear Editor,

At the beginning of October 2010 I was doing my trek on the road to Santiago, La Coruña Province, Galicia, Spain. After dinner I was heading to the hostel outside the village, about one kilometre away, in the company of a Norwegian ‘pilgrim’ woman, with whom I walked that day. It was cloudy and it seemed it would rain that night.

I seized the opportunity to explain to her the news about the externalization of the Spiritual Hierarchy and its leader, Maitreya and how the Space Brothers were supporting this crucial event with ‘signs’.

In the sky there was a big star. When looking at it I said: “And that, I think, is one of their craft.” She look at me as if I had drunk too much wine that evening. I commented that I would ask them to give us a sign.

The ‘star’ disappeared at that moment, appearing again a bit further away. After watching attentively, she said it could have been a cloud. So I asked out loud for the ‘star’ to give us another sign, and the ‘star’ disappeared again! The woman stayed silent and somehow afraid, and I continued explaining the news. Was it a sighting of one of Maitreya’s ‘stars’?

M.M., Barcelona, Spain.

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was Maitreya’s ‘star’.)


Snow tale

Dear Editor,

Snow mosaicIn the morning of 17 December 2010 my attention was drawn to the kitchen window and outside I saw a beautiful mosaic in the snow. There were ten prints of about 7 centimetres deep cut into the snow over a length of about 1.40 metres. The edges were clearly cut, not one edge askew or irregular. It moved me deeply and made me very happy. I had to go and look at it time and time again. I could dance with joy and all of a sudden felt light as a feather as if I was carried. Healthwise I am in a difficult situation, but since 17 December a remarkable calm and confidence has come over me.

Could you please tell me the meaning of this?

P.v.W., Zoetermeer, the Netherlands.

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the snow mosaic was a blessing from Maitreya. It has done its work on her.)

Buddha statue emits light

Moving Buddha statue in Pu XianThree videos on YouTube website appear to show a bronze statue of the Buddha moving its lips, blinking, and emitting a bright light. The videos were taken at the Pu Xian Buddhist Mission in Malaysia in February 2011.

The caption for video No.2 (uploaded by klchin77) reports: “The Buddha is emitting light and blinking its eyes. This happened on 27 February 2011. This is no hoax. Please notice the person captured in the video is not bright and it was witnessed by many people.” The four Buddhas can be clearly seen moving their lips and blinking their eyes in an 11-minute video (No.3).

One YouTube commentator says the effects are due to camera movement, but klchin77 replies: “For the record, people in this place saw with their own eyes the Buddha statue is moving before seeking permission to record it.” (Source: YouTube: klchin77)

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that this was a miracle manifested by the Master Jesus.)

Kentucky/Ohio – In Newport, Kentucky, and in nearby Cincinnati, Ohio, witnesses videotaped several blinking lights that moved in the sky on 22 October 2010. The footage has been put up on YouTube. (Source: YouTube: jjarocewicz; 4202zoomtowncom)

Jesus image on chair

Jesus image on chairA man in southern California discovered an image of Jesus on an old rocking chair he had planned to throw away. Lou Balducci of Mission Viejo said he has had the chair for more than 10 years and had never before noticed the image. “Last week, I noticed this image of Jesus on the chair,” Balducci wrote in an email to a local television station in February 2011. “I don’t know how it got there, but it is clearly an image of Jesus.” Balducci continued: “We showed it to our housekeeper and she said it was a sign that our house and our family was being blessed.… My in-laws are very religious and also believe that it is a blessing.” (Source:

Image of the Madonna captured on film

Madonna in image of cliffA photograph taken of a cliff in southwest England contains an image of the Madonna. Caroline and Stephen Gray were walking along the coastline at Newquay’s Western Beach, Cornwall, on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2011, when they stopped to take photos. One of the photos taken by Caroline Gray contains an image of a hooded female figure resembling the Virgin Mary sheltered beneath rocks. Gray says the image was not visible when the photo was taken. “There was nothing on the screen when I took the original photograph,” she said. “Then when we got home the image of the Virgin Mary had appeared. There was absolutely nobody else on the beach at the time, which makes this all the more intriguing. It looks like a pregnant woman and she appears to be holding a lamp. It certainly looks like the Virgin Mary.” (Source:; The Telegraph, UK)

Two suns seen over Taiwan

Twin suns in TaiwanA man on Penghu Island, Taiwan, filmed two suns in the sky on 2 March 2011. Shown on Taiwanese television news, the man explained: “I know this sounds absurd, but I when I was filming my family, I saw two suns among the clouds and filmed it. I do not know how else to explain it.” According to the website Life’, “The suns – one fuzzy and orange, the other a crisp yellow orb – appeared side-by-side, one slightly higher than the other”. Two US scientists who watched the video said the phenomenon could not be completely explained by science; they agreed that the image was not created on a computer by the photographer. (Source:

Weeping statues in Ohio library

Statues of the Madonna and Jesus in a religious library in Ohio are weeping tears. The statues inside Our Lady Queen of Reading religious lending library in the town of Reading, Ohio, have been weeping since late January 2011. Visitors arrive daily to see the Madonna statue in the back of the small shop, and the statue of Jesus at the top of the stairs. Said one visitor: “It is a miracle. I think something will come of it, hopefully something good.” (Source:

Maitreya's 'star'

Pescara, Italy, Maitreya's 'star'Since December 2008 sightings of Maitreya’s ‘star’ have been reported all over the world. These include hundreds of YouTube videos, letters to Share International and dozens of media reports. These three images show Maitreya’s ‘star’ filmed at dawn over Pescara Valley, Italy, on 25 February 2011. The ‘star’ is seen on the video changing colour and size rapidly. (Source: YouTube: IntelligenceAstro)

We present a selection of quotations on the theme of ‘The young will lead the way’ from Maitreya (Messages from Maitreya the Christ and Maitreya’s Teachings – The Laws of Life), Benjamin Creme’s Master (A Master Speaks), and Benjamin Creme’s writings.

Everyone is being affected by the new energy pouring into the world. Those who believed in political, religious and philosophical systems have become disillusioned because they have failed to bring peace, prosperity and happiness. You can only solve the problems of the world with a sense of realism that is not clouded by ideology or market forces…. No one can resist this new energy. It is taking nations and individuals by surprise. (Maitreya, The Laws of Life)

Throughout the world, today, individuals are demanding, often for the first time, a say in how their country will be governed, in how their destinies will be fashioned. The old practices are being questioned, and a growing intolerance of ancient corruption is being seen on all sides. Naturally, this healthy response of the masses finds little favour in the centres of power in any country, threatening, as it does, their monopolies of privilege and prestige. However, a new world is being wrought from the injustices of the past, and naught for long can withstand the high tide of change. The energies released by Maitreya and His helpers are awakening men to a new awareness of themselves and their potential, and a growing confidence in their ability to manifest the future they envision for their kindred. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The Era of Righteousness’)

Great new spiritual energies in great potencies are pouring into the world on a daily basis. This is transforming human consciousness including the consciousness of young people. (Benjamin Creme, The Great Approach)

The power of the sheikhs, kings and sultans has been broken. The days when the people of Middle Eastern countries were treated like slaves has come to an end. The people are demanding government by the people, for the people. The evolution of awareness in the human individual is spreading throughout the world as people begin to realize their heritage and their destiny. The seed is growing into a plant that will flower and give fruit to the younger generation. (Maitreya, The Laws of Life)

The world is divided, therefore, into two groups – the conservative, reactionary groups holding on, fighting a last ditch stand against change, and the newer, younger, progressive groups responding more to the quality and energy of Aquarius. That confrontation can be seen in political, economic, religious and social spheres in every country of the world. (Benjamin Creme, The Great Approach)

The young will rebel against the ideologies of old, whether they are imposed on them by politicians, religious leaders or intellectuals. And their demands will have impact. The surge of young voices is already being heard in Africa and the Middle East.… Young people want to see constitutions that are by the people and for the people. They are tired of the old nepotisms of family, party and ideology. (Maitreya, The Laws of Life)

The present politicians, with some exceptions, are of the past, upholding the status quo. Standing in the wings is a group of younger men and women who have been trained by the Masters since 1975. They will be elected, through the democratic process, to positions of power and influence to implement the new structures, the change in direction, which the Masters will advise. Through them the Masters can work without infringing human free will, because they are men and women in the world. By their obvious altruism, common sense and grasp of the problems, they will be elected to positions in many countries (perhaps most countries) which until now have been held, in the main, by the diehards of the past. (Benjamin Creme, The Great Approach)

… the outward presence of Maitreya and His group of Masters will have an amazing impact on the minds and hearts of literally millions of people in every country. These will now stand ready, their aspiration high and pure, for the creation of a new world, and for an entirely new view of what it means to be alive on planet Earth. Many of them, perhaps the majority, are young and relatively untarnished by the cynicism and unfettered greed of their elders. Thus they see clearly the answers to the problems which confound their fathers, blinded as they are by the faults and glamours of the past. These young people will remake this world for their fathers. They have come into incarnation for this purpose and will answer Maitreya’s Call. They come, too, many of them, trained and prepared for the tasks which await them and which, undaunted, they will gladly perform. Have no fear, the world is safe in these young hands. They await, eagerly, the opportunity to serve and save. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘Man’s ultimate triumph’)

Awareness is growing everywhere, among nations, people and even animals and plants.… The young are demanding that they play their part and that their voice be heard. Before, everything was decided by the elders but all that is changing. It will be the ‘end of the road’ for politicians unless they willingly get into step with the New Age. (Maitreya, The Laws of Life)

Every generation brings into incarnation those equipped with the answers to the problems that they will meet. It is not possible above a certain age to deal with the new situation. The new generation cannot expect their fathers or grandfathers to deal with their problems. The fathers and grandfathers can learn from the young how to solve the problems, and I think that is actually taking place. Many middle-aged and older people may regret much of the activity of the young but recognize also that they have a freedom, a self-confidence, an awareness of the possibilities in life which they themselves only too often did not have or recognize. (Benjamin Creme, The Art of Co-operation)

When Maitreya appears before the world a new situation will develop: the old certainties will quickly disappear, to be replaced by a surge of hope in the New. A sense of life’s adventure will enthral the young and prepare them for a life of service. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The future is assured’)

It is the younger generation which is experiencing the effects of this new energy and this gives them the strength to change the old systems which have imprisoned people. The young know where the power is: it is not in the bullet but in the heart, which is the source of light. Life comes into the body with light and lies in the heart. The body is able to function while the light is there. That is why Maitreya says that whoever controls light controls life. (Maitreya’s associate, The Laws of Life)

In my opinion it is precisely young people today who have the new spiritual vision; who see the world as One; who believe in love and brotherhood and sharing; who are ready to share. It is easy to say: “I agree with the Christ. I am all for sharing the produce,” but in fact, what does it mean? It means that we in the developed West, who greedily grab and waste most of the food, energy and raw materials of the world, have got to learn to live more simply. The rest of the world, two-thirds of it, live at the lowest level. We have to be sure in ourselves whether we are ready for this experience; whether we are ready to relinquish what we have in surplus in order to share what we have with all. Are we ready for this sharing? That is what we have to ask ourselves. It won’t be done for us. We have to see within ourselves if we are ready. The hearts of mankind, according to Hierarchy, are sound. These qualities of sharing and co-operation are deeply imbedded in the hearts of millions of people, especially in the young; above all in the young.

It is the young who will inherit this coming time. They have come into incarnation specifically…. We come into incarnation in group formation, specially equipped to deal with the situations. This is what is happening now. The young are equipped, mentally and spiritually, to deal with the problems which beset us today. (Benjamin Creme, The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom)


Each age brings into incarnation those groups of souls whose energies can find a consonance with the prevailing energies of the age. In this way, the necessary forms through which the specific intentions of an era can be expressed are certain of formation. Thus it is today as we stand at the threshold of the Aquarian Age.

More and more, adolescents and young adults will be found to be singularly well equipped to respond to the incoming energies of Aquarius which tend to synthesis and fusion. Likewise, they will be able to take advantage of the opportunities which, uniquely, will be presented to them, and will find and create the structures on which the civilization of the coming age must be built.

Maitreya, as may be expected, has His plans well laid. These involve the setting up of centres and institutions in which the required teaching will be given, experiences met and lessons learned.

In this way, groups of young and mobile pioneers will chart the new ways of living and relating, seeking ever to infuse their lives with the loving, blending energies of Aquarius. Wise experiment will lead them step by step to the creation of viable and trustworthy forms which, gradually, will be adopted by all.

Thus the new era will emerge from the chaos of the old. Thus the restrictions of the present will give way to a freedom altogether new, in tune, at last, to the life-giving waters of Aquarius. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The Waters of Aquarius’)


The new civilization, based on right relationship, is the next predestined, planned advance for humanity, on every level – politically, internationally, socially, scientifically, culturally, in education, and so on. Eventually, the education of the young will go forward in a very systematized way…. We build a culture through the work of the disciples and initiates of the world: from their ideas and the ideals stemming from them, the civilization is built. The ‘ideas-people’ are the initiates and the disciples of the Kingdom of God, of the Hierarchy. They do the initial work of promoting the ideas and ideals which are gradually stepped down until they reach the level of the educational institutions and so on, and a whole new civilization is created. And it can be in a relatively very short period of time. (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya’s Mission Volume Three)

From His centre, Maitreya uplifts and upholds the world. His energies, directed with consummate skill, heal the cleavages, destroy the ancient dogmas, and purify the ways of men. Those who seek to impose their selfish will and hold to the forms of the past will soon relinquish their power. Bereft of support, they will fade into the darkness of yesterday. In their places a new generation of leaders will arise, men and women of goodwill, filled with the urge to serve mankind. Into their hands will be given the reigns of power. By common consent, their altruism and wisdom will fit them for the tasks of reconstruction which lie ahead. (Benjamin Creme’s Master, from ‘The hour approaches’)

My plan is being fulfilled. My Love kindles a new aspect in man, and the new Light dawns. My promise is this: soon for yourselves you will see a changing world, a world which alters before your eyes. The old gives way to the new, and man stands on the threshold of Truth. (Maitreya, from Message No.117)

The Friendship Case:

Space Brothers teach lessons of brotherhood – an excerpt

by Gerard Aartsen

Their very appearance in our skies in friendship carries the cosmic message of brotherhood.” – George Adamski

Around the same time that George Adamski was openly establishing, on the advice of his space contacts, the international Get Acquainted Program (GAP) to foster greater understanding and friendship between people worldwide who were interested in the UFO phenomenon, the Space Brothers themselves were setting up similar efforts, albeit less publicly, in many countries around the world.

A large-scale and inspiring example of this has recently come to light in Italy where a considerable number of Space People, who were living and working in underground bases, had regular contact with dozens, if not hundreds of Italians. According to the recent documentary Il Caso Amicizia (‘The Friendship Case’), similar projects were going on in other European countries and in Siberia, South America and Australia at the same time.

Not long before his death, the prominent Italian psychologist and theologian Bruno Sammaciccia decided to disclose his experiences with a group of Space People, which started in 1956 and continued into the late 1970s. While this case, and especially the information coming from the Space Brothers, shows many striking parallels with the information coming from other contactees, it differs in that the humans involved were not taken aboard spacecraft, but rather given access to underground and underwater bases.

Professor Sammaciccia, who held four university degrees and was nominated by UNESCO as ‘Man of the Year’ in 1982, had previously had “extensive experiences in paranormal phenomena” and “had met many Masters from the East”. In April 1956, Sammaciccia, who lived in Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy, and two of his friends, Giancarlo, an accountant, and Giulio, an engineer, had a strange experience. They were studying a map of Ascoli Piceno, north-west of Pescara, with regard to possible treasure hidden in the castle there, when a pen flew out of its penholder and landed on the map. When they took out a piece of paper, the pen wrote: “Now I am going to explain to you who I am, where I come from, and what I want to ask you; I am here to give you of our goodness and knowledge.” All the while they were experiencing a strange “beneficent sensation”.

“Are you ready?”

A few days later they went back to the castle in Ascoli Piceno, where they heard a voice say: “Now, my friends, stay calm, because I am going to have one of us appear. Are you ready or aren’t you?” As they met their space friends for the first time, they felt an intense emotion as first one then a second person appeared from behind a wall. One of the two men, who both spoke Italian, was over 2.5 metres tall, while the other was no more than a metre in height.

Bruno Sammaciccia’s fascinating account of what was to be a long-term, large-scale case of contact with the Space People was recently documented by the author Stefano Breccia, who included it in his book Mass Contacts, first published in Italian in 2006. Sammaciccia’s story gives many details and captures brilliantly the different characters of some of the people involved….

On their first encounter the friends were told: “This is a critical time in human history. We are not here to conquer, because there is nothing to conquer. We have been on Earth for many centuries, living in secret bases around the planet.” And in response to concerns about their strongly ethical perspective on life compared to that of humans: “Our goodness and truth will be stronger than human doubts.”

Fostering friendship

While Professor Breccia was an engineer who admits he was more interested in the technology of the Space People, Sammaciccia’s interest was in their philosophy and ethics. The Space Brothers who contacted him and his friends actively worked to foster a sense of friendship and shared responsibility by going through the roundabout process of eliciting the group’s help in procuring food, fruits and even materials, which they could have clearly resourced in less conventional ways, if they even needed them at all. Sometimes the friends were reimbursed for the costs of the goods, but it was regularly left up to them to furnish the required funds.

As the Space Brothers taught the group: “Love in its most unselfish sense, as well as ethics, respect and altruism should guide every thought and every action. These values are essential to ensure a safe and healthy evolutionary process. A lesson that humanity has to put in practice, if it is to avoid the risk of terrible self-destruction.” According to the Space Visitors their main task was to make sure humanity would not use its nuclear arsenal and to help our evolutionary progress, trying to push us to a higher level of understanding, even sharing some of our suffering in the process.

In confirmation of Benjamin Creme’s insistence that the Space Visitors are utterly harmless, author Stefano Breccia, who had some encounters of his own, says in the documentary based on Sammaciccia’s account: “They said they were incapable of causing harm to anyone. Even their devices [which were consciously impregnated with their sense of ethics and morality] would refuse to harm anyone. Indeed, they said if they weren’t able to avoid hurting someone, then in that case they would self-destruct.”

Over the years the people who had experiences with the Space Brothers grew in number and included people from all walks of life: some rather well-known in Italian society, such as university professors, a television journalist, a famous painter, as well as the Italian consul Alberto Perego, who had his first sighting of a UFO over St Peter’s Basilica in Rome in December 1953….

Worldwide effort

In his story Bruno Sammaciccia relates how the Space Brothers were able to use any transistor radio to relay their messages. Many of these were recorded and one of the messages from the Brother referred to as Sigir is played in the video documentary about the Amicizia case:

“Dear friends, dear sons. Do not doubt us, as none of us will waver. Stay united. United. United. Endure your mutual weaknesses, while struggling to improve your humanity and your friendship towards us.

Our world is hard for you to understand, dear friends. That is natural. However, with affection and trust you can be close to our hearts, which are always open towards you, and understand us more. We embrace you with warm affection and sincere friendship. Yours, Sigir”

Apart from many details of the Space People’s advanced technology, knowledge and their control of natural laws reminiscent of the abilities of great avatars (Sai Baba) and senior disciples (Madame Blavatsky), a striking feature of this case is the similarity with George Adamski’s Get Acquainted Program (GAP). While an in-depth look at Adamski’s mission shows that the coming of the UFOs is not an event in itself, but is happening in support of the awakening of humanity to the spiritual realities of life and the return to the everyday world of the Elder Brothers of our Spiritual Hierarchy, the Friendship Case provides ample evidence that Adamski’s GAP was not an isolated attempt, but part of a worldwide effort by the Space Brothers….

Introducing GAP to his supporters around the world in 1957, Adamski wrote: “The idea is that the citizens of each nation, through these efforts, will grow into closer united friendship with their countrymen, without discrimination or divisions of any kind. In time it is hoped that these national efforts will overflow into worldwide understanding and friendship.”

German protests: “Nuclear power – no thanks”

The nuclear accident in Japan has sparked a discussion about atomic power in Germany, where a massive anti-nuclear protest was already planned for Saturday 12 March 2011. Nuclear policy is a major issue in German regional elections this year.

Tens of thousands of people protested in Germany against the government’s plans to extend the life of its nuclear reactors. The demonstrators formed a human chain 45 kilometres long between Stuttgart and the Neckarwestheim nuclear plant, waving yellow flags with the slogan “Nuclear power – no thanks”.

Organizers estimate that about 60,000 people turned out for the protest. The activists voiced strong opposition to Germany’s 2010 decision to keep its 17 nuclear plants running for an average of 12 extra years, saying that events in Japan had proved atomic power was an uncontrollable and risky technology.

A senior Green Party politician said that some German plants are vulnerable to the same kind of failure that has happened at Fukushima 1. Japan’s 12 March nuclear accident looks likely to lend new impetus to the ongoing debate about the safety of nuclear power in Germany.

Green Party co-floor leader Jürgen Trittin said that, although this was “no time for self-righteousness”, it was a fact that there were nuclear plants in Germany that were vulnerable to the same kind of accident as recently seen in Japan. “And the government has just extended the operating lives of exactly these plants,” he said. He pointed out that the plant at Neckarwestheim was “not sufficiently protected” against a meltdown and was also located in an earthquake zone.

In response to the Japanese triple disaster of earthquake plus tsunami followed by nuclear pollution it has just been announced that Chancellor Angela Merkel, in a complete u-turn, is suspending plans to extend the life of Germany’s ageing nuclear power stations, two days after the nuclear emergency triggered by Japan’s devastating earthquake.

Protests in the USA

The introduction of a bill by Wisconsin’s governor taking away the ability of state worker unions to negotiate pensions, working conditions and benefits sparked weeks of protests and sit-ins centered at the state capitol in Madison. Protests began on 14 February 2011 (three days after President Mubarak resigned following mass protests in Egypt) and gradually grew larger during the days and weeks ahead. Hundreds of people occupied the state capitol building around the clock for weeks, while tens of thousands regularly held rallies outside.

Through manoeuvres of questionable legality, the state legislature passed the bill, which the governor signed into law. In response, an estimated 100,000 people gathered at the state capitol to protest. Lawsuits have been filed challenging the legality of the new law, and statewide efforts are underway to hold elections that would remove from office the legislators who voted for the bill.
