The Characteristics of Maitreya and the "Second Coming"
I found this piece of information in Wikipedia that is said to be reflective of the characteristics of the Maitreya (who has been considered to be returning by many of various religious idealologies (using a different name variation according to the dominant language in which they hold this belief) including: Buddists (though some think this was Akbar, but still hold out for yet another), Muslims (though some think this was Mohammed, yet still believe another is slated to come) and Jewish (some of which believe it was Jesus but still expect yet another appearance) and Christians who believe this was Jesus (though because of what Jesus said still expect yet another to come). And there are a long list associated with every religion that claim to be that ONE.
Thus will the real ONE let themselves be known!
So here is the Wikipedia piece, you can find under "Maitreya" but scrolled down to "Characteristics" to find this:
"One mention of the prophecy of Maitreya is in the Sanskrit text, the Maitreyavyakara?a (The Prophecy of Maitreya), stating that gods, men, and other beings will worship Maitreya; it implies that he is a teacher of meditative sadhana:
"will lose their doubts, and the torrents of their cravings will be cut off: free from all misery they will manage to cross the ocean of becoming; and, as a result of Maitreya's teachings, they will lead a holy life. No longer will they regard anything as their own, they will have no possession, no gold or silver, no home, no relatives! But they will lead the holy life of chastity under Maitreya's guidance. They will have torn the net of the passions, they will manage to enter into trances, and theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness, for they will lead a holy life under Maitreya's guidance." (Trans. in Conze 1959:241)"
To follow is my evaluation of this above piece of Sanskrit translation, as for anyone to qualify as the actual return of a true Messiah, King of Kings, Son of God, Annointed One - Christ Consciousness, etc. they would have to show total consistancy with the prophecies about them and of course essentially the principals and their application in life. This is very interesting because these characteristics are the closest I can find to the characteristics of what constituted a Jesus follower as evidenced by many things quoted to Jesus as follows:
Re: what their followers would be REQUIRED to aspire to and what their lifestyle would emmanate:
A Defined "Holy Life" consisting of: "No Possessions, no gold or silver," (Jesus said to the rich man who said he had followed all the Mosaic rules, that if he was perfect then he should give away all his riches to the poor and then follow Him and said it would be near impossible for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven (leaving open the possability because he knew he could not always second guess his "Father")) "no home, " (Jesus said the Son of Man (a born human follower of his path) has no place to lay his head, different than the birds and foxes, etc.) "no relatives", (again, Jesus' disciples left their homes and families behind and Jesus said his vehicles mother was not his mother but that his family was now those of the same mind as he, no longer identifying with the vehicle as who he really was/had become), "Chastity", (which has various interpretations of degree but is essentially those who have sacrificed their normal sexuality but really pertaining to all sensuality for "heaven's Sake" as Jesus spoke of it, meaning for the sake of their potential membership into the Kingdom of Heaven, co-opted to be to the generation of more personaly spiritual power and spoken of in John's Revelation as "those who have washed their robes and no longer have relations with women" (John was still the product of largely a male's world in his thinking/terminology, a big part of the reason one of the two witnesses and the Older Member of the Jesus Older member took a female body as Ti.)). "torn the net of the passions" (again referring but in a more general way to the pull (net) of all sensuality - whether stimulus from a passion to eat and taste or acquire power of intellect, having our emotions rule us) and will "manage to enter into trances" (referring I believe to a type of self focused washing of one's own brain - "wash their robes" - :"overcoming all their otherwise natural mammalian based humaness, which is the origin of the purpose of meditations and mantra's to be tools (of which Jesus and Ti and Do used throughout their classrooms "The lords prayer",but prayer in general, Ti's "Power of Goodness", and certain meditative and self mind control techniques to block negative thinking, or thoughts that might otherwise threaten our overcoming task - to assist in the overall overcoming process of taking over the vehicle towards a graduation experience)), "theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness, for they will lead a holy life under Maitreya's guidance" (note: The kind of Peace that comes by knowing who we are connected with, knowing their nature and that they had no worldly cares any longer, not even concerned about our physical health because of seeing how well the Older Members care for us which Ti and Do did exquisitly, though not to the satisfaction of all the students necessarily - I know one x-student who faults Ti and Do for not providing more regular dental checkups, though they did help some with major dental work, me included and did encourage some to get jobs that had dental insurance to pay for it as they were always fiscal minded for the sake of the mission's continuence, to not be hampered by lack of funds for what they may or may not need to do, to stay on task, thus they were very practical and considerate of what might be done for each student, also accounting for their not thinking any of us would be living on Earth to a ripe old age)
However, there's is a huge key here that is repeated several times: "under Maitreya's guidance" in that some of the more recent and/or ancient eastern religiousness portrays that there is no person of God, that the God is within (often referring to Jesus' saying we would not outwardly recognize the coming of the Kingdom of God next time, because the recognition would come from within us), as a universal mind, or cosmic consciousness or christ consciousness thus something that anyone can tap into at any time, which has it's truth But not to the extent that we can actually graduate into membership without the hands on physical interface with a living being to assist/guide us as a midwife, because of the way all manner of distractions and counter intelligence is used against prospective members (soul seeds) that requires someone to come to sort through it all and lead, thus jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the light, no one comes to the father except thru me" and "to be my disciple one must deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow me (literally follow) (though when he is physcically gone then follow in his footsteps and ways - behavior as best we can).
Also, they the followers would "lose their doubts" - well that is called "faith" which isn't necessarily blind as it comes from experiences past (in a past life so to speak because of having been "saved" as a spirit form to continue the classroom next time the rep comes physically) and present, by living/working with the rep gaining realistic experience and trust in their leadership/teachings which can only be accumulated experientially.
And the "torrents of their cravings will be cut off", which is the "rapture" - the "catching away" of the students out of their human world and all that represents in their natural torrent of cravings for relationships, sensual desires of all kinds, self satisfactions in career building and bascially have a normal human life "cut off".
And these "will manage to cross the ocean of becoming" which is the overcoming process, what Ti and Do compared to a metamorposis, the rapture being the entering into a coccon, protective environment where all one's energies could become focused to "becoming" a new creature.
So I ask you, do we see anyone past or present representing these combined mindsets/physical disciplines with common sense, practical non-humanly profitable motives and reward?
Certainly they would be seen as an extreme, where even religious zealotry is nearly mainstream, at least in the form of talk and appearances, while the few that can actually be documented to have matched up to the characteristics reported here that are attributed to the re-emergence of the person spoken of in eastern culture as the Matriaya - having more of a Buddist background, though having it's reflection in most all sects and offshoots before and to date.
Ti and Do in my opinion took the nonsense out of religion and spirituality. That's a lack of sense. They never put on appearances of holiness and never swayed from their high standards of behaviour and action. They never wore who they knew they were on their sleeve to leverage themselves over another, not even their students. And yet they didn't hesitate to realize and admit that they didn't have all the answers to all the questions their students might have. But why wouldn't they, if they were the annointed ones, the Two Witnesses in the Jesus related record books? It's because their task was to take the graduate students out of the Earth Experiential classroom they actually begun nearly 7000 years before, that was not the first classroom of it's kind on the planet Earth and far, far from the first classroom they and their Older Members in the Evolutionary Level Above Human orchestrated for our sakes. If we want to live forever, then why not give an ear to those who most demonstrate being from someplace outside the Earth and who require our ALL eventually to become a member within. All the others who establish churches and temples and services and paraphenelia and tithing and membership and caste's and classes and so called supremecy, touting being the elite or elect or saints that will be saved or ascended offer their so called reward for next to zero real effort. But for the few that do insist upon strict standards, their harsh retorick - hell and damnation, etc. guilt and sin accusations, judgementalism against others also gives their fraudulence away. I can honestly testify that Ti and Do did none of that, never, not in the 19 years I was their close student and I saw it all. We lived together in the same house or on the same land when we lived out of doors in Wyoming, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California. So ask me and ask the few others that are willing to talk about their experiences with Ti and Do. Even the drop outs have hardly any critisism of them that holds much water. Sure they admitted to us when they made mistakes and I will talk about those as well. But looking back on those events I can see that they were not mistakes at all. Some times they were following what they felt were their instructions, like when we waited for a spacecraft to come pick us up and it didn't show. Ti said she felt like she had egg on her face from that BUT seeing with new eyes, as I didn't even then feel she had egg on her face though I didn't know why the spacecraft didn't come, but now could see from some students response that it was to test us. Did we join just to catch a ride on a ufo/spacecraft? If so, these had to be weeded out so to speak. Didn't mean they were weeds, but were simply not ready for the gigantic step overcoming one's natural human nature presents. Overcoming isn't something to sing about. It's not a meditation or a mantra. Those can be tools in it. It's first seeing what it is that holds us back from becoming this new creature, a child in a new evolutionary level of physical and mental/spiritual life and then changing (repenting) those behaviours that support that mindset and root system while keeping it on the forefront to not let what we then feel are lessor behaviors get the better of us to remove us from the mission we so felt to pursue and in so doing saw more and more evidence of it's worth and what it must lead to. It is experiences over and over and over, falling down in one's control over our mammalian based physical body but not letting that stop us from gaining the upper hand of the horse we chose to take over.
It's not for everybody at the same time to recognize the human teachers teachers. It starts with simply being willing to believe and not fear the loss of what we have naturally become so addicted/dependant of. But belief without action, namely expressing that belief to others is nearly worthless belief, but expressing it to others does not mean standing on a podium downtown with a megaphone. It means being senstive to who might want more than what this human world can offer and simply extending the same offerring that was offerred to you, in some respect and degree and if they want more then let them ask for more. If not, move along. So many are already saying "no" to some of their programmed flesh desires. Those desires are not wrong, though if they harm another by invading their free will to live in peace, they are inappropriate to leverage upon another. But those desires, do get old and there is more to aspire to, but it's not to be found on Earth, except for the "pathway". And many pathways lead to the top of the mountain, but only one really takes you off.
Even the space aliens don't offer anyone an step in evolution that is above the human condition, like the human condition is above an animal condition and animal above plant and plant above mineral. If they are teaching us to be human then they are not from the Level Above Human, it's that simple. What's human. Well it's largly self centered and sense pleasing. All of our good characteristics called love really boil down to the degree in which we "give". If the Next Level reps never taught our genetic strain and the spirit programs that are born from each genetic bud the value of "giving" we humans would never given at all. Has anyone seen an animal give up their food to help another animal,that is when it's not their offspring or family. Even those who do evil things may treat their own family well.
That's why it's such a big step to learn to give until one day we might want to give service to those who gave us the very opportunity we have to live in the first place. We are not here by accident. There is a purpose to all this and even those who co-opt everything the Next Level does to help us grow is part of our opportunity to turn even their negatives into positives.
But the ultimate positive is to "give" back to those who give so much to us and to so so completly voluntarily. The Next Level does not hold a carrot in front of a hungry rabbit to get it to jump. Well, actually they do do that a bit in the early stages of the garden flowers growth. Otherwise we plants would never know what was available. But they do so very sparingly and perhaps never in an absolute form.
I will never know you all personally and I will never ask you for anything for myself. I don't need you to believe what I am saying about Ti and Do. I am not in service to you. I am in service to Ti and Do. You are never to look to me, except if there are questions I might answer about my experience with Ti and Do, but not in praise of me. I am equal to you. I simply had an extraordinary experience that bonded a big part of me to Ti and Do, yet I still have a great deal to overcome.
So I'm saying that Ti and Do did emulate all these characteristics attributed to the returned Matriaya and did demonstrate all the same characteristics Jesus demonstrated and all the characteristics Moses demonstrated, that of course are all stages for different garden patches, though for the same few souls that could be spread among many new souls at the same time.
And another characteristic is that they always make a global splash that is bigger than any splash before then and they are always hated for their splash as for the worldly, who stand to lose something they value of the world, they represent an enemy, thus these will do anything to stop anyone from hearing about them and who they really were and what they really taught and why. Reps from the Level Above Human tell it like it is and most times it's hard to take and they always require a new leap of faith to be willing to hear their voice, but they never give us more than we can absorb and act upon. But it remains our choice to at any point to turn away and they will allow us to do so and yet will still be there if we want to turn back.
We have until each of us die to make our choice. Those who choose to ask Ti and Do's help, in their silence as many times as they feel will begin to see and will be realistically "saved" for a future opportunity to start fresh in a new garden following a recycling period on Earth.
Those who are left will simply perish. We have the opportunity now and it doesn't mean giving up everything either. It's hard enough to hold this in our heads and it's hard enough to manage these animal vehicles. We need to toss it a sugar pill sometimes to help the medicine go down, in whatever form that takes. But if we are tossing it sugar pills all day and everyday then we have a long road to breaking those addictions to that stimulus.
The part of the task that requires walking out the door of our lives to overcome all our human behaviors is most appropriate to our growth stage when the Older Member blows the horn again which is slated for the next civilization on Earth. So that will be a task in the future of all those who are "saved" now. And no one, not I or anyone else can assume we are "saved". Since I already had a major opportunity and flunked out of my highest aspiration by returning to the world having been given so much of Ti and Do's attention, I may have a stiffer requirement to show I am worth saving. But I am not doing this to be "saved". I am doing it because I can't deny it's true, so I must pursue it an inch at a time if that is all I can do. When I move an inch, I ask Ti and Do to help me move the next inch and they do in amazing ways. They don't send a blaring voice into our head or attempt to channel through us. That's a space alien and/or discarnate spirit tactic for their self centered agenda. And they don't punish us either. That idea is the result of the lower forces co-opting the Next Levels motis operendi and making it into a religion. No wonder there is so much hypocrisy. It originated by a king of hypocricy, though the Next Level can use even their predatory behavior to benefit their seed's continued growth toward yeilding fruit.
We will all have to lose our current physical life. We should not accellerate that. However Do did not think it was wrong for someone who was in desperate pain with no prospect of improving it, to where they could not grow any longer because they are so preoccupied with their pain or side effects from medications, or don't know who they are or anyone else or on life support with little hope of coming out of it, choosing to end their own life. The Next Level has workers among us that can see whether that soul should have a future opportunity to live again. Even if they never heard of Ti and Do they may be "saved". But the idea that when we die we automatically incarnate into a new body is a misunderstanding of the Next Level's choice to "save" a soul or not. The only form of coming back into a new body that exists is by the Next Level helping saved souls who were believers pick a living human body to work with to take through the birth canal of birth into the Next Level by. But they don't actually embed their soul or spirit form into the same flesh that produces the spirit form to begin with. That's not possible. However, a dead human spirit often will stay around after it's death doing the same things it always did while alive and in that way comes back and can influence and even at times help living physical humans. This is why many living humans can think they are the reincarnation of someone who once lived, because by their focusing on their behavior or by being in relationship with those humans and/or genetic strain and associated dead human spirits that they were in relationship with and/or by calling their name, potentially even by reading about them with a desire to meet them, they draw that dead spirit to them in an instant as it's like a remote control device sending out an interfacing signal and depending on one's desire and sensitivity may actually feel they are being visited by that entity.
However, in the overcoming process we must begin to give walking papers to all discarnate helpers and/or hinderers. In that way all end up beign hinderers as often do most all humans who are not ready, willing or able to embrace the same process.
But how would anyone know the truth in all Ti and Do taught unless they are willing to look at all the evidences. For those that want to investigate further, here is a link to some files available for free download that are Ti and Do in audio and in video presenting their information, who they are and why they were here. These were not all designed for the public. Some were. Others were simply tapes of the meetings Ti and Do gave their student body during the 22+ years of their current task on Earth. And they are all pretty poor quality but better than nothing:
If you have any questions and/or would like further data, you can search the internet but you will mostly find much that is mostly assuming the negative because of the dramatic and tramatic way in which they Do and his remaining students left their physical bodies (vehicles) in the mass suicide noted in the media in 1997 as Heaven's Gate.
I was a close student of Ti and Do's for 19 consequtive years, from the beginning in 1975 to nearly the time of their departure and I am willing to answer any questions but have no interest in starting a church of any kind as that would just lead to the same hokus pokus religio-spiritual pseudo worship of anything but the Evolutionary Level Above Human, the new terminology for the Kingdom of Heaven/God.
