The Lord Maitreya does not take any side
Asala Festival - May 2002
I would like to explain the Lord Maitreya’s viewpoint on what is happening in the world at the moment. I would like to explain again and again that the Lord Maitreya does not take any side of any people, any nation, any religion, any viewpoint except what is good. He stands on the side of every human being who is good, doing good to others, of any people, any nation, any individuals, any religious group, any person within it who stands on the side of good.
If you take any side in the conflicts, like thinking that Israelis are stupid fools because they act the way they do, or the Palestinians are evil creatures because that is how they act, or the Indian people are monstrous because that is how they act, then you do not stand on the side of Maitreya. Maitreya loves all human beings equally much on Earth because He sees their souls. But He is a warrior of Light, battling for goodwill and right human relations to become the predominant feature and behaviour between human beings.
If you want to work with the Lord Maitreya, you support the good in yourself and you support the good that is in all who have good in them. Many people take sides these days because they do not live in the consciousness of true goodwill and right human relations. They say about whole nations that they are evil or bad. They talk about whole groups of people as such and such. But you can’t do it.
Within every human being, if there is light it can be seen on the inner, and sometimes on the outer as well. It can be seen in the eyes, in the heart, in the head. It is that light that guides Maitreya to those people. That is the light they look for on the inner. Whatever that person looks like on the outer is of no importance to them. They go for the light and that is what we create here, light, in us, in others and in the Earth itself.
That is our life’s purpose: to become light, to enlighten us, enlighten others and enlighten the Earth. This is why we work with the Lord Maitreya. That is His purpose, that is His goal.
And if you wish to help humanity, which I think you do since you are here, then I believe the best way to do it is to forget all thoughts and all notions of who is evil and who is this and who is that, because it is of no concern. We have to rise above all that talk and unite with the Heart of Maitreya, and see, look for where the good is radiating and where the good is felt and then get very close to those people and help them do more good.
