Way - 9
"The Messiah Projects: The Buddha, Son of Maya"
After the Great War which freed humankind from its masters, the
Daughters of Ma (DOMA) took over its education and civilization.
They decided to use a control system already in place - religion.
Whereas before it had been used to control humans and keep them
within a certain area, it would now be used to bring them
education, basic societal concepts, and most important of all,
the Laws and Word of God. What is important to realize here, is
that although the human members of the Collective were thousands
of years more advanced then even we are today, they did then and
now still do, believe in a unifying force known to them as The
One. There are certain truths and laws of conduct they believe,
are made manifest to life by The One. We know this as the Laws
and Word of God. It was their intent to bring humankind this
knowledge. The program itself was vast, far too complicated and
large to be covered in full here. Instead we will focus on the
last 1500 years of the project. During this time, a series of
"Teachers" were sent to mankind. I have already covered the
general purpose for this, so let us now look at what these
teachers tried to teach. One last important fact to remember is
this. All these men were sent by an advanced human female, not a
God. She has been worshipped from the very beginning of human
history. Although this woman is of a royal caste among her
people, she should not be thought of as God. Rather think of her
as the greatest of all the prophets of God. She is the Queen of
Prophetesses, the Queen of the Heavens, The Queen of Peace. She
is not God, nor does she wish you to think this. View her in the
highest regard and with respect. For it is she who freed you from
the harness of the tyrants. It is she who stood between you and
certain annihilation when her people thought you too evil to
allow to continue. It is she who has brought you the prophets and
the Laws and Word of God. Thank her by being true human beings of
intelligence and compassion.
Originally, Siddhartha Gautama.
Born 563-483 BC
Indian mystic and founder of Buddhism. He began preaching after
achieving supreme enlightenment at the age of 35.
Thus, have I heard:
The Buddha was the first of the later prophets. His main mission
was to introduce and explain, two basic and simple concepts.
1) That there are only two types of thought - right and wrong.
2) How to become a human being utilizing the power of doing only that
which is right.
That's it. No cosmic theology, no mystical and coded mythology or
secret rituals. Just the basic difference between right and wrong
in all things. Sounds simple, does it not? Therein lies a truth
and a lesson in understanding. Truths are from God and as such,
they are perfect. Truths are in the simplest form possible. They
are stripped of double meaning, confusion, and illusion. They
state a simple fact that is as easily comprehended by a child, as
it is a scholar. A truth will trigger that little piece of God in
each of us that knows right from wrong. You must learn to trust
your own ability to see the truth. It will be very important
later on as we try to pick through the mass of confusion, lies
and just plain evil, that man has intermixed with the Laws and
Word of God. A little hint - if you have to have a priest explain
it to you, it isn't.
With that said, let us look at the Buddha, 'The Enlightened One
of God." The Buddha held to what he called the Golden Rule. "ALL
THAT WE ARE IS THE RESULT OF WHAT WE HAVE THOUGHT." The Buddha
was born 2500 years ago, and approximately 500 years before
Jesus. He was born in a royal family of India. Legends say that
he was born from the Great Virgin Maya. This is the Hindu version
of Mary. You now know of course, that he was the product of the
DOMA Messiah project. He did not start his career until he was in
his thirties. The events that led to his enlightenment are quite
One day, the Buddha sat under the Bo Tree. This tree is called
the tree of wisdom, or enlightenment. It is the same tree
associated with the Goddess image throughout the world. Deborah
sat under the Palm Tree, Isis had her holy tree at Mataria, to
where both Mary and Jesus fled in Egypt. The point is this. Most
Goddesses had a tree shrine linked to them. It is this tree that
the Buddha now sits under. He falls into a deep meditation and
thus begins the Enlightenment. The spot were he sat is now called
"the immovable spot," since he stayed there for 49 days. It was
here that the Goddess Maya tempted him. She wanted to see if he
was indeed worthy enough to receive enlightenment. I will not go
into this particular test with the Buddha. I want to save it for
the next Way message. Jesus was tested in the exact same manner,
and I will use his example to show you the others.
After his awakening, the Buddha began to teach the masses of the
Law and Word, of God. His most famous lesson was given to the
people at Benares. Buddhists hold his teachings there in the same
light as Christians hold the Sermon on the Mount. Let me stop
here for a moment and explain a very important thing to you. The
reason I am going through all the Messiahs and their basic
message is this. Most of you consider the other religions to be
false, with false prophets, yet many of you do not know what
these other men said or what their religion contained. For
instance, of the Christians out there reading this, how many do
you think have read the Koran or studied the teachings of the
Buddha? Almost none. Why? Because they have been told not to,
plain and simple. Of that group, many condemn without even
knowing that which they condemn. It is my hope and the hope of
she who sent me, that you will see the underlying truth in all
these religions. That they all say the same thing and all come
from the same source.
That said, let's get back to the Enlightened One. At Benares, the
Buddha gave the people his main message. He told them there were
four basic truths they should know.
1) All through your life there will be suffering, pain and misery.
2) This suffering is usually caused by selfish cravings and personal desires.
3) This suffering is not a necessity of life and can be overcome.
4) The way to eliminate or reduce suffering in your life, is to follow the
examples of "The Eightfold Path."
In order to go any further, we have to introduce one more concept
- reincarnation. Now before any of you good Christians take off
in fright, realize this. Before the Council of Nicea, you as
Christians were taught to believe in reincarnation. No, you still
don't believe? Then read the following verses.
John 3:3, "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.'
John 3:7, 'Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.'"
Now you can disbelieve me, but do you dare him? Jesus knew that
reincarnation is a part of God's laws.
The Buddha said that the end goal was to get off the karmic wheel
of life and death, and reincarnation. This ending would then let
you leave this world and merge back into The One. It is an end to
self. He called this state of rejoining God, Nirvana, the
ultimate bliss. Well now let's see, the ultimate bliss is to be
with God. Well, maybe the Pope's right. Sounds pretty demonic to
me. All kidding aside, the Catholic Church, and in particular the
current Pope, have made significant strides. Are you aware that
they officially declared that the God of the Jews and Christians,
is the same Biblical God as that worshipped by the Muslims?
Survival is the mother of all invention and conciliation.
So what about the Eightfold Path? Here are the steps:
1. Right Knowledge is knowledge of what life is all about. Knowledge of
the Four Noble Truths is basic to any further growth as a Buddhist.
2. Right Aspiration means a clear devotion to being on the Path toward
3. Right Speech involves both clarity of what is said (taking care to say
just what is meant) and speaking kindly, and without malice.
4. Right Behavior involves reflecting on one's behavior and the reasons
for it. It also involves five basic laws of behavior for Buddhists: not to
kill, steal, lie, drink intoxicants, or commit sexual offenses.
5. Right Livelihood involves choosing an occupation that keeps an
individual on the Path. That is, a path that promotes life and well-being,
rather than the accumulation of a lot of money.
6. Right Effort means training the will and curbing selfish passions and
wants. It also means placing oneself along the Path toward Enlightenment.
7. Right Mindfulness implies continuing self-examination and awareness.
The 'Dhammapada,' a basic Buddhist text, begins, "All we are is the result
of what we have thought."
8. Right Concentration is the final step in being absorbed into a state of
The first two steps are the easiest; anyone can do them. No.'s
3,4,5, are harder and if achieved, would give you the status of a
novice monk. Steps 6,7,8, are the hardest. They are only fully
achieved by advanced beings over the course of many lifetimes.
We are interested in steps 1-6 to begin with. Let's look at each
of these now.
1) Right Knowledge
As with all things, there is a beginning and an end. This
principal is the first step, the beginning of your Way to God.
One of the results of becoming human is that the distance from
the animals increases, as your knowledge increases. Those who say
knowledge is not important are fools. Those who keep knowledge
from you are setting a trap. Your job as a human being is to
acquire as much knowledge as possible. Knowledge of life, of
science, of spirit, of God. Knowledge is the one thing that can
never be taken away from you. Learn to see that which is new in
all things. A person could spend an entire lifetime learning all
there is to know about a single blade of grass, so don't think
that you can ever know everything. Knowledge allows you to think
about something intelligently. It is helpful in solving problems.
It is the key to understanding, and invention. Knowledge can open
your eyes to things you cannot see. It can bring revelation into
Here's an example of the power of knowledge. I have told you what
I call this work I do. I call it The Way. But did you know that
the Buddha called all his teachings The Middle Way? Or that
Jesus' followers called his teachings The Way? Or that Muhammad
taught The Way of Islam? Surprised? Feel it? That's why knowledge
is Way Cool. I told you they all taught the Way. Knowledge holds
uncountable moments like this in store for you.
There are two kinds of thought in this life. Those that cause
pleasure and those that cause pain. Knowledge can produce both.
But it is the pleasure-producing side of knowledge that is The
Way to God. There is a sweetness in the spirit when something
learned piece by piece comes together, and - Click! - realization
dawns in the mind. Is this not one of the most pleasurable of
sensations? The sense of accomplishment it engenders can make
your spirit glow. As you have probably noticed, each of the eight
paths are preceded by the word "right." This is important. What
exactly does "right" mean? The American Heritage Dictionary of
the English Language, Third Edition, defines it as follows.
"Right (rOt) adjective; right_er, right_est; Abbr. r., R., rt.
1. Conforming with or conformable to justice, law, or morality: do the
right thing and confess.
2. In accordance with fact, reason, or truth; correct: the right answer.
3. Fitting, proper, or appropriate: It is not right to leave the party
without saying good-bye.
4. Most favorable, desirable, or convenient: the right time to act.
5. In or into a satisfactory state or condition: put things right.
6. In good mental or physical health or order."
These ideas are represented by the word we call right.
Here then, is the opposite of right.
"Wrong (rYng, rZng) adjective
1. Not in conformity with fact or truth; incorrect or erroneous.
2. a. Contrary to conscience, morality, or law; immoral or wicked.
b. Unfair; unjust.
3. Not required, intended, or wanted: took a wrong turn.
4. Not fitting or suitable; inappropriate or improper: said the wrong thing.
5. Not in accord with established usage, method, or procedure: the wrong
way to shuck clams.
6. Not functioning properly; out of order.
7. Unacceptable or undesirable according to social convention."
These are the two basic principals that judge all things. The
most basic, the very first, the most important, Law of God is
this: Right is light, wrong is darkness. Right is of God, Wrong
is not. Place this Law firmly in your minds and hearts. Without
this knowledge, you will never belong to, or be one with, God.
This is the direction of The One path, The Way.
