Q. (1) Did the Syrian authorities use chemical weapons in Homs recently? (2) Have chemical weapons been used against the opposition forces in other parts of Syria?
A. (1) No. (2) No. Q. What is your opinion of carbon emissions trading? A. It is dishonest and does not help the fabric of the planet. Q. Is nuclear pollution the worst aspect of environmental destruction? A. Yes. Q. (1) Just as there will be an emergency plan in the short term to feed the starving and the malnourished, do the Masters have a blueprint about what needs to be dealt with as a matter of urgency with regard to the terrible degradation we have caused to our planet? (2) What will be the first emergency tasks to save our planet? A. (1) Yes. (2) Clearly, a lessening of the `carbon footprint' of everyone on the planet. Q. Is the skeleton that was exhumed in a carpark in Leicester, England, in September 2012, really that of King Richard III? A. Yes, it was King Richard III, maligned by Shakespeare and of course the Tudor dynasty. Q. Given that Benjamin Creme wrote on page 19 of his book The Gathering of the Forces of Light: UFOs and Their Spiritual Mission that the Day of Declaration would take place within three years of Maitreya's first television interview, and that we are now past the three years. Obviously something has changed that is fine, things do as we know. Would Benjamin be kind enough to inform us of where things now stand. Are the books being printed now still stating this three-year timescale? I believe it is necessary to clarify this situation, because people are going to ask us about it as we spread the message about Maitreya. A. Yes, things do change. Throughout my years of work I have been asked with various degrees of manipulation, how soon Maitreya would appear in so many weeks, months, years, in my lifetime (given my mature age) etc. It has always been quite difficult to satisfy this quite natural question, which everyone wants to know. The fact is nobody knows. I don't, my Master says He does not, even Maitreya does not exactly. Nevertheless, every time, pushed to the point by questions for some date, I ask the Master, He always says in about three years, and at the time He says it, it sounds logical. It sounds vague, not a hard set date. Remember, that to the Masters, there is no such thing as time. If you read the actual answer in the book you will see that it is less cut and dried than you suggest: "Maitreya is emerging very soon. The Day of Declaration could be anytime from a year to two or three years after His first television interview. The Masters and Maitreya Himself seem to think that the time will be relatively very short indeed. But whatever the timing, these four spacecraft [Maitreya's `stars'] will remain in the heavens, seen by an increasing number of people. Hopefully the media of the world will become more and more open to reporting on these `stars'." Q. In a recent interview with Benjamin Creme (seen on YouTube), Mr Creme stated that Maitreya is in a physical body He created for Himself, but He can change His appearance at will, and can look quite hideous and grotesque. The question in mind is, why would a being of light and love wish to look hideous or grotesque? A. If you knew the variety of appearances that Maitreya has adopted over the years you would be amazed at the flexibility which He displays. He can look like a young and beautiful woman, a gnarled old man, a toothless jibbering clown, in a huge variety of clothes, sensible or hysterical. He is still a being of "light and love" but adopts a persona exactly fitted to the occasion and to the hopes or prejudices of those who are blessed by His presence. Q. What do you think of the 7th day Sabbath and why people keep Sunday? A. Sunday, or the Sabbath, is meant to be a day of rest and if people have worked hard they need a rest. I believe that all people need more time for leisure, to find themselves and give of their best, that is from a creative point of view. One of the mistakes of our modern `civilization' is that so many people today spend most of their working life in conditions of mechanical drudgery. Leisure is an essential part of life. Q. I watched a documentary about Babu (Ambilike Mwasapila), a 76 year-old protestant priest in the small village of Samunge, near Loliondo, in northern Tanzania, who has given `miracle water' to over 5,000 people since 2011. In 1991 he had a dream in which he believes God spoke to him and showed him a woman with AIDS, and told him which medicine could be given to her to heal her from this disease. When Babu woke up, he wondered how a tree could heal AIDS when even doctors can't heal it? The roots of a Karanga plumtree called Enga Muriaga, is used to produce the special drink: the roots are cooked in hot water over night and next day the people are given a cup to drink. Babu says it is only a healing water when you swallow the drink straightaway and don't carry it home. People pay about 25 cents for the cup of miracle water: 40 per cent of the profits go to the church, 40 per cent goes to his co-workers and Babu receives 20 per cent. The tree has been investigated by the National Institute of Medical Research in Tansania. Some of its healing qualities are already known: it helps to lower high blood pressure, helps diabetics by needing less insulin and it helps to detoxify and purify the body. But it also heals AIDS. Joyce Elia was healed from the disease after drinking the special drink: she took an AIDS test twice and the results showed she was healed. Many people have been healed from severe illnesses such as cancer, epilepsy and diabetes. (1) Did Maitreya talk to Babu in the dream? (2) Can it really heal AIDS and cancer? (3) Is there a reason why the people should drink it only at Babu's place? Why should they not take bottles home with them? (4) Could a potion of this tree be effective in a homeopathic dose to treat AIDS or cancer, for example? What dilution would you recommend to treat AIDS, cancer or diabetes? A. (1) Yes. (2) Sometimes. Healing is not inevitable, but it helps in many cases. (3) It is not necessary to drink it just at Babu's place. (4) Yes, in 30c potency.
