The Wesak celebration
Every full moon in May the Lord Buddha gives His Blessings to the World.
1966, beloved Gautama transferred the power and authority of this blessing to
Lord Maitreya, who had assumed within the Spiritual Hierarchy the office of
Buddha. From that time forth, Lord Maitreya has continued to dispense the love
and blessings of the Lord of the World to all who assembled every year in the
sacred valley where the Wesak Festival is held. Through their heart's love, we
The Lord Gautama has been succeeded by the Lord Maitreya since the middle of the previous century, when the Lord Gautama became:
of the World.
Following is a Message of the Lord
Maitreya about this sacred night.
Beloved of God,
On this, one of the most sacred and holy nights of the year, I come to
enfold you in the love of our Mother-Father God and share a few words of faith,
compassion, and encouragement so that you, too, may find additional peace in
During the last fifty years, in fact throughout the century only recently
completed, each and every member of the human family has been going through a
time of great trials and tribulations within their very soul and spirit.
Accordingly everyone has at least one personal story of tremendous tragedy or
victorious accomplishment to share.
No matter what one's religious belief or spiritual background, when this
process began and each experienced the overwhelming feeling that something was
missing in their life, it prompted each person on this planet to question who
they really were. Questions such as: Why am I living upon the Earth at this time
in history? How did I get to this point in my life? What, if anything, is there
after so called death? And most importantly, What is the guiding force that
appears to be with me as I take each and every step in my life no matter how
small and shaky or strong and long each one is? Are my words beginning to sound
familiar, beloved ones?
As each of you well know, those who have come to this sacred valley to
celebrate the Festival of Wesak in either your physical or finer vehicles,
throughout the course of your spiritual evolution, these questions and many
others have often entered your consciousness to be contemplated, resolved and
move you a little farther along your own spiritual path. Also, as you well know,
often the very idea of questions such as these created much confusion and doubt
within you and within those around you who care about and love you.
On the other hand, these sacred experiences have also allowed you to find
the faith and strength to begin and then continue the search for the answers to
your many questions; that necessary spiritual and life changing quest which you
and each and every one of your brothers and sisters in your human family must
one day undertake.
Ultimately at some point on your journey
you will truly come full circle and ask that all important question; What is the
omnipresent, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving entity known by so many names?
Depending upon your religious background and tradition: Who is God, Allah,
Jehovah, Yahweh, Higher Power, Creator, Lord, or the Great I AM? Thus with this
very simple but very important question your consciousness begins to expand to
such far reaching levels, that as the answer begins to come, truly you and the
life you lead will never be the same again!
When you choose to go directly to the
heart of what "God" is,
by-passing and looking beyond each religion's specific definition and rules to follow to
become a more 'Godly' or 'righteous' person. After you have stripped away all
but the very essence of the Almighty arriving at the source of all life, you
will find but two fundamental terms remaining which answer this all important
question. God is energy and consciousness.
Then, with the additional knowledge you
have received along your journey that God exists in all things you must
also accept that at the very heart of all things there is also nothing more than
energy and consciousness. And it is only the level of this energy and
consciousness that determines one's place in this universe.
Beloved ones, by all outer appearances in
the universal divine plan, the Earth is very small and life upon it even
smaller. However, the level of the energy you are able to tap into, your ability
to use it well and expand it outward will determine your place in God's Great
Design. This is the core principle container within two statements you have
heard many times: "Where you attention is, there you are." and "Where
you are so shall you become!"
If for now you have difficulty
understanding this far reaching but all important concept of 'energy and
consciousness', I ask you to work with it for awhile in your day-to-day life.
In everything you do and everything that happens to you ask yourself the
following: What is the level of energy at work in my life? And what is the level
of consciousness of all concerned in each situation? Over time, you will come to
better understand this principle my dear chelas.
Always remember, energy is the life force
upon which all things in the universe are based and consciousness determines
its place in the universe.
My message tonight may bring some
confusion to your emotional body. It may also raise many questions to your mind
but that is good! For it is within the question that the answer lies! Take time
to ponder my words for ultimately, there is only energy and consciousness!
Also, if you remember nothing more of
your journey tonight, place this divine principle upon the altar of your heart
and hold it sacred, for once anything is lovingly and purely placed there it
must begin to grow and expand. Thus, over time you will become more loving, more
supportive, more peaceful, more harmonious, more forgiving and more
Peace be unto you beloved ones!
