by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
It is only a matter of time before the people of the United States
realize that they have made a grievous mistake. They have reinstated, albeit
with the aid of many stolen votes, a man and administration dedicated to the
creation of division and hatred, both nationally and internationally.
They will ruefully watch an attack on their proudly held freedoms; they will
see a steep decline in their standard of living as the government, of
necessity, strives to tackle their enormous debts; they will witness a loss
of confidence in their currency and a sharp reversal of trade with their
traditional trading partners. The calamitous invasion of Iraq will continue
to fester, both in Iraq and elsewhere in the world. Reacting to the fear and
hatred which this administration has engendered almost universally, the
tendency will be for the people to look inwards, and to turn their backs
even more squarely on the world.
A major problem in dealing with this administration is the powerful illusion
under which it works: that it is God-inspired and so in divine Grace,
helping to restore the Christian world and message to its former power and
glory. Thus has the USA taken a huge step backwards, isolating itself from
the true concerns of much of the world: environmental pollution and the
demands of a planet suffering under the strain of impending disaster.
The United States will find that the world will not stand still. With or
without American co-operation the nations will proceed as best they can to
deal with the many ecological and social problems which beset us, and which
so urgently must be addressed. America will find itself left behind and
ignored, and only then will it be prepared to ‘lead’ the way.
This administration is, even now, relishing its victory, and weighing the
pros and cons of subsequent action. Thwarted and taken unawares by events in
Iraq, it must pause awhile before considering further violence. But the
bravado and rhetoric will doubtless continue, hoping to bully and conquer by
threats alone. Meanwhile, great changes in many countries are under way,
leading to a profound shift in the balance of power in the world. China and
India, South America and Russia, are finding their feet and economic
potential. Africa is beginning to receive, at last, the concern and goodwill
of powerful governments and agencies, and can look forward to better times.
Thus the world is turning away from the dominance of American power and
wealth, and charting another path to fulfil its destiny.
If the United States insists on its right of unilateral action, it will find
itself neglected and ignored in international plans and projects, its
economy will further decay, and its people will lose confidence and trust in
government action. Without friends, and with ebbing strength, it will be
forced to change, and to renew dialogue with its former friends.
The emergence of Maitreya will speed the process of this transformation and
assure its welcome completion.

Yasser Arafat, 1929-2004
Benjamin Creme writes:
A great man of our time has died, great, yet abused by his enemies, and
misunderstood even by his friends. He was a man of vision and extraordinary
courage and optimism, an inspiration and father-figure for nearly half a
century to the oppressed people of Palestine.
He has been the target of the implacable hatred of Mr Sharon for decades,
and the Israeli propaganda machine has accused him of every manner of
mistake, misdeed and mishandling of opportunity for peace. The mud has stuck
and he is seen, even by erstwhile friends, as a ‘flawed’ President.
He was nothing of the kind. He was invited to and attended, as did the late
King Hussein of Jordan, the three-day Conference which Maitreya held for
over 300 people in London in April 1990. Since then, he worked under the
immediate inspiration and guidance of Maitreya Who told him, again and
again, not to accept an agreement which is unjust. Every agreement put
forward has been unjust, and, being unjust, would not have lasted.
I quote from my Master’s article, ‘A time of decision’, from Share
International, May 2002:
“… Israel, meanwhile, stung into action by suicide bombings, as always
overreacts, using as excuse “a war against terrorism” to impose its will. In
the shameless persecution and humiliation of Mr Arafat, Israel’s leaders and
army should take no pride. The people of Israel, more than most, should
understand the agony of the oppressed….”
Benjamin Creme replies to readers' questions
Q. Could you please give the
ray structure and point of evolution of Yasser Arafat (1929-2004),
President of the Palestinian Authority?
A. Soul: 6; Personality: 4 (sub-ray 6); Mental: 1 (sub-ray 4); Astral: 6
(sub-ray 6); Physical: 3 (sub-ray 7). Point of evolution: 2.4.
In terms of spiritual development Yasser Arafat was the equivalent of former
US President John F. Kennedy (PoE: 2.4) and more advanced than Mahatma
Gandhi (PoE: 2.0).
[A ray is, according to the Master DK, “but a name for a
particular force or type of energy, with the emphasis upon the quality which
that force exhibits.” Rays thus qualify all creation, including the human
constitution. Soul, personality, mental body, emotional body, physical body,
all are coloured by one or other of the seven rays.
In order to facilitate study and comprehesion of the rays, Benjamin Creme’s
Master, over the years, has kindly provided requested information on the ray
structure (and point of evolution) of well-known individuals, but for
reasons of privacy, never of living people. The figures in the given order
represent: (S) Soul ray; (P) personality, major and (sub) ray; (M) mental
body, major and (sub) ray; (A) astral/emotional body, major and (sub) ray;
(Ph) physical body, major and (sub) ray; (PoE) point of evolution.

Q. Was Yasser Arafat poisoned?
A. No, he died of a broken heart.
Q. Was Yasser Arafat foolish not to accept the peace plan proposed by
former President Ehud Barak of Israel?
A. No. It was not a fair or just plan. Barak claimed that the Palestinians
were offered 90 per cent of the West Bank territories whereas, in fact, they
were offered 42 per cent of the West Bank area plus Gaza. Even then the West
Bank would be covered with Israeli settlements, each of which would be
defended with an Israeli garrison. Roads connecting the settlements would
therefore provide fast communication for the Israeli army, thereby cutting
up the so-called Palestinian areas into pieces remote from each other. It
was hailed as “most generous”, “perhaps too generous”, by the Israeli
propaganda machine. In fact it was a travesty of justice. (SI March 2003)
Q. Chairman Arafat was reported to be in high spirits during the
course of the siege. His doctor visited him there and proclaimed him to be
in good health despite the extraordinary stress he was under for a man of
his age. (1) Did Maitreya give the Chairman and his colleagues trapped in
their headquarters a special protective blessing? (2) Has Maitreya had any
further communications with Chairman Arafat since 1988? (3) Has Maitreya
appeared to the Chairman recently? (SI June 2002)
A. (1) Yes. (2) Yes. (3) Yes.
“Peace of the brave”
Let the great and good Yasser Arafat speak for himself:
In February 2002 a statement by Yasser Arafat entitled “I want to talk
peace” was published in The New York Times. We print excerpts below:
“… We seek true independence and full sovereignty: the right to control our
own airspace, water resources and borders; to develop our own economy; to
have normal commercial relations with our neighbours and to travel freely.
In short, we seek only what the free world now enjoys and only what Israel
insists on for itself: the right to control our own destiny and to take our
place among free nations….
“Peace is not a signed agreement between individuals — it is reconciliation
between peoples. Two peoples cannot reconcile when one demands control over
the other, when one refuses to treat the other as a partner in peace, when
one uses the logic of power rather than the power of logic. Israel has yet
to understand that it cannot have peace while denying justice. As long as
the occupation of Palestinian lands continues, as long as Palestinians are
denied freedom, then the path to the “peace of the brave” that I embarked
upon with my late partner Yitzhak Rabin will be littered with obstacles….
“The Palestinians have a vision of peace: it is a peace based on the
complete end of the occupation and a return to Israel’s 1967 borders, the
sharing of all Jerusalem as one open city and as the capital of two states,
Palestine and Israel. It is a warm peace between two equals enjoying
mutually beneficial economic and social co-operation. Despite the brutal
repression of Palestinians over the past four decades, I believe when Israel
sees Palestinians as equals, and not as a subjugated people upon whom it can
impose its will, such a vision can come true. Indeed it must.
“Palestinians are ready to end the conflict. We are ready to sit down now
with any Israeli leader, regardless of his history, to negotiate freedom for
the Palestinians, a complete end of the occupation, security for Israel and
creative solutions to the plight of the refugees while respecting Israel’s
demographic concerns. But we will only sit down as equals, not as
supplicants; as partners, not as subjects; as seekers of a just and peaceful
solution, not as a defeated nation grateful for whatever scraps are thrown
our way. For despite Israel’s overwhelming military advantage, we possess
something even greater: the power of justice.” (Source: The New York
The joy of living
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
Each winter, the sun sets earlier and earlier until, on the shortest day,
we see it, if at all, for but a few brief hours. Such is the reality of our
planetary life. However, experience has taught us that, without fail, the
days will gradually lengthen and the blossom of spring and the warmth of
summer will return once more, bringing us renewed hope and joy in living.
When one considers this, when one sees how inevitable is change, one sees
also how unnecessary is despair. Despair strikes at the heart of truth, for
the truth is that nothing remains the same for ever, not even the
Since this is so, what is to be gained by fruitless despair? Better it is,
by far, when the blows of karma seem difficult to bear, to await calmly the
appointed hour of change in the sure knowledge that it will come. True joy
in living can be ours only when we learn to accept with equanimity the blows
and the gifts of life.
Such a one is a disciple. Such a one knows that naught in this universe
stands still; all is in movement, constantly changing and assuming new
forms. Consider, then, how vain it is to expect the present to persist. This
insight engenders freedom; from that freedom spontaneously arises joy.
Joy must be understood to be the natural state, underlying happiness and
sorrow alike. When uncovered, it radiates its light — the light of the Soul
— on all around and makes manifest the love which is the nature of God. Love
and joy co-exist in the heart which is pure, unclouded by fear, hate or the
anguish of despair. Remove fear from your heart and know joy. Release
yourselves from hate and know the meaning of love. Cast from you dark
despair and stand in your true light. Thus can you enter the Kingdom of
Souls and become a saviour of the world.
Many approach the future with fear, knowing little of the glory which
awaits them. For them, naught beckons but bleak destruction. Show them that
the future for man will be wonderful to behold, holding as it does the
promise of revealed divinity. Trust is not easily engendered but the light
of joy will prove the best ambassador. Teach the young to express the joy
which is their birthright and place not upon tender hearts the weight of
guilt and fear. Thus will be born a generation of joyous servers of the
Take Us, your Elder Brothers, as your example; the radiance of Our joy is
Our hallmark. Emulate Us, and spread abroad joy’s light.
Conquer fear and uphold the hope of others; fear and joy are equally
infectious. Demonstrate love and joy and close firmly forever the door upon
despair. Do this and you will aid mankind more than you could know.
Q. As a US citizen I am deeply concerned by the re-election of George
Bush. When I read this comment from the Master via Benjamin Creme, my
concern increases: “Q: What will happen on the international scene if
President Bush remains in the White House? BC: As my Master says in His
article, the alternative to a victory for Kerry and common sense and peace
‘is too terrible to contemplate’.” [SI November 2004]
In one of the Master’s articles from several years ago, He assures us that
Light will prevail and says: “There is no need to fear in the present
conflict” and “this being so, naught can disturb the plan for the
rehabilitation of the world”. Has the re-election of Bush created something
that has altered the greater Plan spoken of? “Too terrible to contemplate”
is certainly a long way from: “naught can disturb the plan for the
rehabilitation of the world”. Thank you for your time and dedication in this
most challenging of times.
A. No. The Plan is working out despite the troubles on the physical plane.
The American people will realize the mistake they have made and come back
into reality — but will have to suffer a bit first, I’m afraid. Also, Kerry
really won the election; only the cheating and vote-rigging of his opponents
robbed him of the prize, and these Americans are still there and will not
Q. (1) Does the final outcome in the US Presidential election
accurately reflect the preference of those who voted, or (2) was there any
corruption or manipulation which might have changed the outcome? If so, (3)
which side cheated more? (4) If the results were ‘fixed’, by which methods
was it done?
A. (1) No. My information is that there was much cheating. (2) Yes, Kerry
should narrowly have won Ohio and Florida and the Presidency. I am afraid it
is the same old story, more expertly performed this time. (3) The
Republicans. It seems that cheating by Democrats was minimal and only on a
personal basis, but cheating by Republicans was pre-planned and widespread,
especially with the new electronic machines. (4) Pre-programmed electronic
voting systems and various other methods, cruder but just as effective —
delayed postal votes, double voting, non-counting of votes, and more. Of
course, the marginal (swing) states like Florida and Ohio were targeted and
the machines were programmed to change every fifth vote for Kerry to a vote
for Bush. However, even without ‘stolen’ votes, Bush, like Gore last time,
did in fact decisively win the popular vote which I personally prefer as a
record of democratic public opinion.
Q. In view of the very suspect election results in the US could your
Master please say how many Democrat votes were illegally blocked by one
means or another?
A. 2.5 per cent.
Q. In Ohio unemployment is rising and there are various well-grounded
reasons for discontent among voters; please help a European understand the
results. It seems incredible and illogical to vote for a government which
causes hardship at home and chaos abroad!
A. My information is that it was a very flawed election again. It hardly
seems possible that Ohio would not bend over backwards to deliver a
Q. Could Bush’s win in the US election actually hasten Maitreya’s
public emergence, by bringing forward the economic crash, because of Bush’s
destructive economic policies?
A. No, I don’t think so.
Q. (1) With Bush’s ‘win’, does that bring the world closer to the
“edge of the abyss” that Maitreya has mentioned? (2) Do you have any sense
of how long we would have to be stumbling along the edge of the abyss before
we come to our senses? Or will other factors such as a financial crisis
bring us to our senses?
A. (1) No. The Plan is working out. (2) Changes are already under way. Watch
very carefully, and as Maitreya says: “Fear not!”
Q. Can we (please) expect Maitreya to do His first interview sooner
than perhaps even He planned before the elections in the US?
A. No, I don’t think so, but in any case, my information is that we do not
have long to wait.
Q. (1) Is there anything that anyone, including those in the
‘Emergence groups’, both in America and around the world, can do to help
speed Maitreya’s emergence? (2) Is it more imperative than ever now that
your information be made known as widely as possible?
A. (1) Make His presence known! (2) Yes.
Q. Will the outcome of the US elections polarize society both in the
US and abroad even more than it is already?
A. Yes, for a time. Eventually, and relatively soon, Maitreya’s hand and
energies, especially those of the Spirit of Peace and Equilibrium, will make
their presence felt more strongly, and unexpected and welcome changes will
take place worldwide. This is not the end of the world.
Q. I know several people who seem quite compassionate, sincere, and
intelligent, but who none the less whole-heartedly support George W. Bush
and apparently believe that what he and his administration are doing is in
the best interest of the United States and the world. How can this be? Can
you shed some light on this apparent paradox?
A. Mr Bush’s supporters, half the American electorate, must have among them
many people who are sincere, intelligent and reasonably compassionate (if
only on a rather narrow front). What they do seem to share is an
extraordinary political naiveté which allows them to return to power a man
who has lied to them; led them into a disastrous war; squandered their
economic well-being and limited their traditional liberties in the name of a
vain ‘war on terror’. I believe it is the result of the destructive
self-deception of America’s
6th-ray personality, in other words, glamour, illusion and fear.
Q. Do you think Osama bin Laden timed his video precisely because it
suits his purposes to have Bush in the White House?
Q. President Putin congratulated the American people for “not giving
in to terror”. (1) Am I insane to think that is just exactly what they did —
give in to fear and the ‘bogeyman’ of terror? (2) No doubt we can expect
more trauma for both Chechens and Russian citizens.
A. (1) That is exactly true. 9/11 completely traumatized the American people
whose fear was worked on and kept going by the Bush administration. (2) I’m
afraid so, yes, but that would still happen if Kerry had been elected.
Q. What can we expect from Israel with Bush’s so-called victory? What
effect will it have on Israeli policy?
A. More of the same. They will be delighted. It will strengthen their hand
and tough action, but Mr Bush is committed to addressing the
Israeli/Palestinian problem and has spoken specifically about the necessity
of a ‘viable’ Palestinian homeland. So the Israelis will have to compromise.
Q. Many people in the media seem to believe that Sharon’s Gaza
‘pull-out’ policy is a genuine move towards peace. Your comment please?
A. I do not share that belief. I think the exodus of 8,000 Israelis from
Gaza is seen by them as a bargain ‘quid pro quo’ for hundreds of thousands
of Israelis in huge and continuing settlements in the West Bank, which was
to be the Palestinian homeland. Now, only a fraction remains to the
Palestinians as a viable home, and no curb on the building of Israeli
settlements has been imposed.
Q. The national security adviser to the first President Bush, Brent
Scowcroft, has said recently that the current President Bush is influenced
to a great degree by the Israeli Prime Minister Sharon. “Sharon just has him
wrapped around his little finger,” Mr Scowcroft was quoted as having said in
his interview to the UK’s Financial Times. He was also quoted as saying the
US President is “mesmerized” by the Israeli Prime Minister. (1) Does this
have something to do with the fact that Prime Minister Sharon is wielding
some very powerful black forces? (2) President Bush is obviously influenced
by those forces as well but is Sharon more ‘under their spell’, so-to-speak?
A. Israel is the central point in the triangle Israel-USA-States in Eastern
Europe, and Mr Sharon is the most powerful exponent of the nefarious
energies which are used and potentized by that triangle. It follows,
therefore, that he has much influence over Mr Bush and his entourage.
Q. South America has succeeded in electing three left-wing leaders,
unlike America. Do you think it could lead to really useful co-operation and
a new chapter in social reform and improved living standards for South
America in general?
A. Yes. Profound changes are taking place, and will continue to do so, in
South America and elsewhere, which are quite separate and distinct from
events in the USA. These will change the meaning and appearance of the
‘leadership of the free world’ by the USA which will be seen more and more
to be tackling only old problems in old ways. Unless the USA grasps the
challenge of change in a speedily changing world, it will be bypassed and
left behind by countries undergoing positive change of their own, leaving
the USA isolated and strong — but impotent.
Q. Will the daily recitation of
The Great Invocation
speed the coming of Maitreya?
A. Yes, and the emergence of those Masters Who are planned to externalize

Over a number of years, some of the Masters, in particular
Maitreya and the Master Jesus, have appeared, in different guises, to large
numbers of people around the world. They also appear at Benjamin Creme's
lectures and meditations, giving people in the audience the opportunity to
intuitively recognise Them. Some people recount their experiences to Share
International magazine. If the encounters are authenticated by Benjamin
Creme's Master, the letters are published. These experiences are given to
inspire, to guide or teach, often to heal and uplift. Very often, too, the
Masters draw attention to, or comment on, in an amusing way, some fixed
intolerance (for example against smoking or drinking). Many times They act
as saving 'angels' in accidents, during wartime, earthquakes and other
disasters. The following letters, previously published in Share

On Tuesday evening, 2 November 2004, I was on my way to a Transmission
Meditation group in Richmond, Surrey. I had arrived at Richmond station
slightly early. As I came out of the newspaper shop, a young woman, who was
about 16 to 18 years old, came up to me, and asked if I would give her some
money for a bed ticket for the night at a hostel. She was small, and wore a
black leather jacket and a gold cross around her neck.
She seemed to me to be vulnerable, and also very frightened. I put my arm on
her shoulder and asked what had happened. She said she was homeless and
could not bear to sleep outside another night. I got my purse out and gave
her some money, but felt I ought to enquire more about the situation she was
I asked if she knew about the Vineyard Project in Richmond, which does a
great deal to help the homeless, and where I had once done some voluntary
work. She said she had been there but they could not help her. I did not
know quite what to make of what she said, for youngsters who are really at
risk are always helped. Was it because of a question of drink or drugs, they
had not helped her for some reason, or had they specified a hostel she was
afraid to go to? There was no sign to me that she had been drinking or was
She started to get emotional and said she was very, very frightened.
“What is making you so afraid … is someone following you?” I asked, glancing
around to see if there were any men following her. “No, no,” she said. I
then remembered there was a hostel for the homeless just about five minutes
away from the station, so I suggested we go there and see if they could
help. She said she had already been there, and they could not help her. I
suggested that we go to the hostel together, and I could ask on her behalf,
which she agreed to do. The woman behind the desk said that they could not
take her in without a referral form from a centre in Twickenham, which was
closed until the next day. So where can she go, I asked. “There is nothing
we can do. I am sorry, but that is the situation, people are homeless,” the
When we got outside the young woman was very upset. I opened my purse to
find there was only a very small amount of cash, which I gave her. She asked
if I would stay with her and go and help her beg for money. I remembered
that I had a credit card, so we went to a cash machine to withdraw the money
she would need for a bed ticket at another hostel up in London.
The young woman was overjoyed, very relieved and put her arms around me. I
had felt such an affinity with her as we walked to and from the station. She
had asked me if I went to church. I said that the only thing that matters is
Was the frightened young woman just needing money for a bed for the night —
or was there something else behind what happened?
AH, East Sheen, London, UK.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the ‘girl’ was Maitreya. The
incident was a test.)
It was 17 October 2004, the last morning of the three-day European Social
Forum at Alexander Palace in London, where several of us hosted a stand. It
was an extremely worthwhile event, with thousands of people attending, and
there was much positive interest in the Reappearance information.
During a pause after a busy couple of hours, a man came to the stand. We
greeted him, and he indicated that he was French and spoke no English.
He was very smart, wearing a dark coat. He was perhaps about 60 years old,
with olive skin and a full head of longish ‘crinkly’ hair. His eyes were
light and sparkling.
The two of us at the stand could speak some French, so between us we gave
him a brief story. We mentioned a Great Teacher (Grand Professeur) using
arms to emphasize ‘great’. He replied: “Plus petit,” (smaller), using finger
and thumb to emphasize smaller. “A teacher for the world,” one of us said
and he added: “Un professeur du coeur,” (teacher of the heart), touching his
own heart. We agreed enthusiastically. He smiled warmly and went off.
Could he have been Maitreya?
SP and HS, London, UK.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the ‘Frenchman’ was Maitreya, and
that He had visited the stand on the two previous days, in the same guise.)
One Monday evening in September 2004, after Transmission Meditation, I was
sitting mulling over things and realized that I hadn’t had any experiences
with the Hierarchy for a while and I wondered if They had forgotten me.
The next day I got off the bus in the centre of Utrecht, crossed the road
and as I reached the pavement felt someone tap my left shoulder. A young man
of about 28, casually dressed and with a friendly manner spoke to me: “Hello
Madam, do you recognize me? I was the one who gave you ‘fire’ (a light)
yesterday.” I answered that no, I didn’t recognize him and said that I don’t
smoke but that I had been in the same place yesterday because it is on my
way to work. What surprised me was that he had an empty printer-cartridge in
his left hand, just like one I use at work. In his right hand he had a
plastic bag which he held up in front of my face and said: “When you need
fire again all you need to do is ask. I’ve got plenty of fire for you.”
We parted and only after I’d gone some distance did I realize what an
extraordinary meeting it had been and that it could perhaps have been
Maitreya. I turned around and although it was quite an open area he was
nowhere to be seen.
Was the young man Maitreya?

Earthquake miracle in Japan
A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit the remote mountain villages and towns of
Niigata Prefecture of Japan on 23 October 2004 around 6pm. The epicenter was
about 13km below and a massive landslide occurred. Mrs Takako Minakawa was
driving home on the hillside road with her two children, Mayu (3 years) and
Yuta (2 years) when her car was suddenly swallowed by rocks and mud and slid
down the hill. The rescue helicopter spotted the front end of the car barely
visible in the mud. Due to the precarious location and the numerous severe
after-shocks, it was 4 days after the quake when the rescue team finally
reached the site.
Unexpectedly a faint sound of a human voice was heard. When they removed
the rocks and mud carefully by hand, they found a little boy standing in the
tiny space (1metre high by half a metre wide) created between the car and a
rock. He seemed to have crawled out from the back seat of the car. His
sister, Mayu was sitting in the back seat which was completely crushed. His
mother seemed to have died from the initial impact in the driver’s seat with
her hands still on the steering wheel.
When they pulled out the little boy, Yuta, he was wearing only a T-shirt and
diaper. His legs were exposed. He had been standing in the dark cold space
for 92 hours (temperatures dropped to 8 degrees centigrade at night). His
body was still warm, and only slightly dehydrated. He was not hurt except
for a slight cut on his forehead. When he was asked if he had drunk
anything, he replied “milk”.
According to experts, it was extremely rare for people to survive more than
3 days, buried like that, because of darkness, cold, loneliness and fear.
The entire nation breathlessly watched his dramatic rescue and was deeply
moved by the preciousness and power of life.

and manifested the milk.)
Indian girl weeps stones
A 15-year-old Indian girl has been admitted to hospital after tiny stones
began emerging from the corners of her eyes. Doctors say they have never
seen anything like it before, and cannot explain it. Residents of the girl’s
village in the state of Jharkhand say that either she is possessed by an
evil spirit, or she is an incarnation of a goddess.
Savitri, the 15-year-old girl, says before the stones emerge she suffers
from excruciating pain in her head. Tiny stones have also emerged from her
ears, nose and mouth. Several doctors have come forward to say they have
treated Savitri and observed the stones.
“In some cases, stones have come out from the nose and the ear of some
people,” said Dr Ragho Saran, who has treated Savitri. “But this is the
first time I have ever heard of stones coming out of the eyes. Stones are
formed due to the high level of calcium in the body. But they are generally
found in the gall bladder and kidney.”
“Stones emerging from a patient’s organs like ears, nose and mouth can be
understood,” said Dr I. B. Prasad, head of the medical department in the
hospital where Savitri has been treated. “But stones from the eyes is a
strange phenomenon as this has not even found mention in medical

Weeping Madonna statue in Malta
A white marble bas-relief statue of the Madonna in the Dominican Convent
in Rabat (also known as Victoria) on the island of Malta is weeping tears of
blood. Tests have proved that the blood is human.
A commission was appointed by Archbishop Joseph Mercieca to investigate the
case of Our Lady of the Cave in the Rabat Dominican church. DNA tests have
shown that the tears of blood are definitely human; the commission said that
they were not aware of any tampering with the statue.
The red tears show up dramatically on the pure white marble and were first
noticed in May 1999. The statue, usually kept in storage, was taken out for
the titular holy feast day. On 6 May 1999, the first tears were noticed by
Rita Bugeja. However, sacristan Martin Caruana wiped the blood off the
statue saying that if it was a genuine miracle the Madonna would weep again.
A day later the tears of blood were seen flowing down the left cheek of the
The bas-relief, a replica of the original marble image of Our Lady which
had been replaced some years previously, was removed to a secure location
while tests were carried out. It remained in the priory chapel for about two
years, but in 2003 the Archdiocese of Malta gave permission to the
Dominicans to allow people inside the chapel to see the statue.

UFOs seen over Mexico
Numerous unidentified flying objects were seen in the sky for several
minutes on the morning of 28 October 2004 in the area of Córdoba-Orizaba,
Veracruz state, Mexico.
Just after 8am, school students, parents and teachers attending morning
assembly saw some white dots in the sky that resembled balloons. A principal
of the Constitucion de 1917 High School said there were five or seven
objects in the sky at first, with the number increasing to 14 or 16.
“They were white, not shiny like stars. They moved in a circle at first and
then they headed in single file toward Orizaba,” the witness said, adding
that students and teachers alike witnessed the event, which lasted some 25
minutes. Also in Orizaba, at the Carlos Cardenas Rojas primary school in
Colonia Cidosa, mayor Martin Cabrera Zavaleta was leading a civic event when
one of those present asked that people look up to see some balloons in the

others remained fixed,” said one witness. Two of the objects moved toward
one side and six toward the opposite side. One of them remained motionless
and finally all of them vanished.
Professors, parents, students, reporters and municipal authorities were
witnesses to the event, which was also seen at other schools and sites.

the art of cheating
An interview with Greg Palast
by Felicity Eliot
Palast is the author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy (see review in
Share International July/August 2002). Michael Moore calls his reporting for
BBC television “courageous”, and
Noam Chomsky says he
“upsets all the right people”.
In the UK, Palast is known as “the most important investigative reporter of
our time” (Tribune magazine, UK). But his award-winning investigative
reports have been banned from US airwaves. His articles for the UK’s
Guardian newspaper have been stopped at the border.
Greg Palast is best known in the USA for his reports on the theft of the
election in Florida and the connections between the Bush family and the bin
Ladens which form the basis for Michael Moore’s latest film,
Share International: Many people suspect that there was widespread
cheating during the November 2004 Presidential elections in the US — more
than there was in 2000. It seems the Republicans have perfected the art of
corrupt election practices. Is that your view?
Greg Palast: I think that the Republican Party got away with stealing
the elections in 2000 and we have no doubt about it, we have hard evidence,
which is what you see in my book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. This
time they again used a whole range of new tricks and old.
SI: Could you give an idea of what some of those tricks were?
GP: The old trick was to continue removing voters under false pretences from
the voter roll — as criminal, who are not criminals. They expanded the
concept of supposed “illegal voter” and mounted, for the first time in half
a century, a wide-scale attack on the right of black Americans to vote. They
challenged the registration and then they challenged the actual right to
vote, for hundreds of thousands of black people.
SI: It’s just astonishing.
GP: It is astonishing. The merest technicality was enough for the
Republicans to mount a challenge — like someone might have written their
signature a little differently, or added an initial, or moved their home a
short distance, or they didn’t have a particular ID card with them, and so
I checked with election officials in Florida where I was able to obtain a
list of thousands of black voters that the Republican Party had challenged.
And 12 election supervisors told me that in their entire careers they had
never before encountered a single challenge to someone voting.
SI: So black voters were particularly targeted?
GP: This was done in the days of segregation. During that segregation period
in the South there were in fact no laws against black people voting — but
there were a string of regulations and rules that would be applied to black
people to prevent them from voting. The Republican Party returned to that
old trick in this election, of taking minor rules and suddenly applying them
to black voters. It’s very easy to do — black and white people don’t live
together in the States and we vote in separate precincts.
SI: What about people from other ethnic backgrounds, such as
GP: I’ve just received information about a massive challenge from New Mexico
where there is a huge Hispanic vote, but I’ve also got information about
American Indians. They are solid Democrat voters, almost as much as black
people. In New Mexico there was a brand new trick — people got handed
SI: What is a provisional ballot?
GP: It’s like a fake ballot, something that will probably never be counted.
It’s given to you provisionally, sort of “We don’t know whether we’re going
to count this vote” and then it’s looked at and fought about after the
elections. It’s up to the official in the state whether a vote gets counted.
In the case of Ohio, the current Secretary of State, Blackwell, in charge of
the whole process of the vote count, makes Katherine Harris (Secretary of
State, Florida, in 2000) look like Thomas Jefferson.
SI: I have to tell you that to an outsider it is incomprehensible that
someone so obviously partisan is in charge of the vote count.
GP: Well, it’s incomprehensible to a lot of Americans. You have people who
are violently partisan. In the case of Harris and Blackwell they are
actually officials in the Bush campaign. So we have a situation where
politicians and campaign officials are in charge of the vote count. Until
recently these officials tried to be cautious — but that is no longer the
SI: Even to outside observers it seems clear that attitudes have
hardened and that vote-rigging is much more blatant, even explicit.
GP: Right. So much so that Secretary of State Blackwell in Ohio — where
Kerry lost — when asked whether he intended to imitate Katherine Harris’s
actions in Florida in 2000, replied that “he hadn’t seen Harris on a
bread-line last time he looked, she was in Congress”! In other words, do
your job well, deliver the state to George Bush and you will be rewarded.
In Ohio vicious racist tactics were used. Blackwell handed out registration
forms and when they were returned by black people they were told that they
were not acceptable because they were on the wrong kind of paper! If you are
a black person you are three times as likely to have your registration
Now in Ohio we have massive challenges with nearly 200,000 votes locked in
provisional votes. In addition we have in the USA — and this is also
astounding to Europeans — about 2 million votes which are never counted.
They’re thrown out.
GP: For technical reasons. Usually we have very bad machinery: people go to
vote but it doesn’t register their vote, or there’s an extra mark on the
ballot and so on.
We know that over half of these approximately 2 million votes were cast by
black people. In Ohio this time there were 93,000 votes which were not
counted. And doing a check we can tell that overwhelmingly those votes were
cast by black and/or poor voters — overwhelmingly Democratic. Now if you add
the spoiled ballots to the provisional ballots (and we know who cast both of
those categories) then George Bush lost Ohio.
SI: How about New Mexico?
GP: It’s the same story in New Mexico. There are two problems between the
non-count of the vote: we know that if all the votes were actually counted
Kerry would have won in New Mexico; and Ohio; and, if you add in the people
who were blocked from voting in the first place because they were wrongly
removed from the voter roll, we don’t know how many other states would have
gone to Kerry. Probably Florida, and a couple of other states as well.
So the Republicans have perfected the art of suppressing the black vote. The
reason they target the black voters is that they are politically vulnerable
people. They are concentrated in certain neighbourhoods so they can give
them bad machines or even ‘back up’ the voting. I know of places where lines
were so long people were waiting longer than seven hours to vote. The New
York Times reported on these long lines but neglected to say that they were
in black communities mostly.
SI: I wanted to ask about the media in the States.
GP: Our press does not face the fact that America maintains an apartheid
voting system and it’s getting worse not better. I’ve just been speaking to
a polling expert: the exit polls show Kerry winning in Ohio, New Mexico,
Florida and several other states. The exit polls are used (by observers) to
determine whether the official vote was fixed or not. So we have a mis-match
between what people said they voted and the votes registered on the
machines. A tremendous problem. A lot of it is accounted for by the fact
that so many votes are not counted. So you cast your vote and you have no
way of knowing whether it was counted.
The other problem is that we’ve moved to computer voting, with very strange
results. Especially in small rural counties. It seems it’s easier to play
games with the computer and no one notices it or has the power to challenge.
So you have a place which is mainly Democrat and voted for a Democrat last
time and suddenly you get huge totals for George Bush on machines you cannot
check. And that was extreme in Florida.
SI: Could you explain the Florida phenomenon — it seems incredible to
an outsider that Bush won there after the 2000 debacle!
GP: You have to understand that Florida is part of the old South — the old
plantation South. Once you leave Miami and Palm Beach you’re in another
First of all you have the problem that the President’s brother is in charge
of the vote count in this crucial state. Then there’s the removal of tens of
thousands of so-called ‘illegal’ voters, which, by the way, will be put back
onto the voter roll after the election. So you begin with tens of thousands,
maybe even a hundred thousand, voters removed. It was worse this time than
last. Then there’re also genuinely lost votes — without cheating or fixing —
votes which also get lost due to poor machinery.
There’s one more factor — a question of culture.
SI: What do you mean?
GP: There’s a sentiment that all’s fair in love, war and voting. If you can
steal a vote, go right ahead! The Democrats used to be the ‘better’ at it,
voting dead people and so on in big cities. But now the Republicans have
more money and have come up with newer, more elaborate, ways of stopping the
vote in all the ways we talked about. And the advent of computers has helped
vote fraud enormously.
SI: The Republicans seem emboldened. Do you think Kerry conceded too
GP: Well, he did the political arithmetic. And he knew it would end up in
the Supreme Court which, as we all know, is a fixed institution, a political
institution. It took no genius to figure out that although he might have had
the votes there was no way they were going to count them. After all, this is
a government which appoints puppet dictators in places like Iraq and calls
SI: And which holds ‘elections’ in some areas only.
GP: Yes, that’s right. It sounds ridiculous but this is all dangerous stuff
— not only is democracy damaged in America but it has repercussions in the
rest of the world.
SI: America’s failure to commit to democracy has damaged America’s
standing in the world, would you agree?
GP: The Bush administration has squandered the world’s goodwill towards
America that we enjoyed under Clinton and then the sympathy we had after
9/11. All the goodwill that Clinton built up has been destroyed and thrown
away by George Bush.
Going forward with resolve — a message from Dennis Kucinich
The following excerpts are from an address to Democrat supporters from
Congressman Dennis Kucinich in the wake of the US election.
You, I and those with whom we’ve worked over the last few years have the
opportunity to participate in creating a whole new dialogue in America and
We may not have the kind of momentum we had hoped for, which we hoped a
Kerry victory would bring, but we do have our own courage — and our own
quality of heart — which will hold us in good stead in what will surely be
some very challenging times ahead.
I think we need to go through this period of grieving over the election, and
then we have to get ready to bring some closure and move on, and go to a
place of real action again, of real heart-centered action, of willingness to
take on the challenges which this administration is bringing to our nation
and the world.
Working for peace
We need to re-dedicate ourselves to working for peace. Not just further
empowering the anti-war movement, but to look at peace as a creative
endeavor, where we bring ourselves into working for peace in our
relationships, in our communities.
The Department of Peace becomes ever more imperative. And the eleven states
whose Democratic delegations took a strong stand in favor of a Department of
Peace will be focal points of all our efforts to get congressional
delegations to begin to sign on in support of this concept, which is aimed
at making non-violence an organizing principle in our society. If there was
ever a time when we needed that approach, it’s now.
In many states across this country, new initiatives are being aimed at the
state level to help develop a kind of a universal healthcare approach within
a state. People in Oregon tried it a few years ago and I think they’re going
to come back. There’s a burgeoning effort in the state of Ohio. We need to
look and see what we can do to promote healthcare in this country, and to
get people organized around it.
We know this administration is not going to be good for the environment —
but we also know that we have the opportunity to push forward, at every
level, development of alternative energies.
You know, we’re looking at soaring natural gas prices in the next few
months. This gives us some leverage to get popular support for an effort to
develop energy alternatives. But we know with the oil companies having a
resurgence in political power with the re-election of George Bush, it gives
us also the ability to galvanize public support for the development of
“With malice toward none”
This isn’t the first time in our nation’s history that we’ve seen bitter
divisiveness — in 1865 in March that Abraham Lincoln faced a nation that was
horribly divided in a civil war with massive casualties. And in his second
inaugural address, Lincoln said these words: “With malice toward none, with
charity for all.” He gave us a lesson that’s valid in our times — not to get
pulled into the bitterness and the divisiveness — to still be heartfelt in
our communications — to at some point separate ourselves from the anger
which we all feel and to move past it, to try and connect with each other
once again — through the heart.
This campaign, for us, began with an understanding of the world being
interconnected and interdependent. It is our connection to all people that
causes us to achieve a higher level of compassion.
So let’s remember Lincoln’s words — and let’s remember our own resolve. And
let’s make sure that when we begin a new chapter in the politics of this
nation, we come forward with ever more resolve, ever more courage, ever more
heart, ever more of a spiritual approach — that will enable us to be
better-prepared to help create this new world that we know is just waiting
to be called forward....
We must never yield to disappointment and to discouragement, because we
build our victories for tomorrow from today’s defeats....
Terrorism, climate change and world poverty all linked
In a ground-breaking two-part documentary The New World War
broadcast in the UK in October 2004, broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby argued
that terrorism, climate change and world poverty are inextricably linked and
that we must conquer them before they destroy us. In The Observer
newspaper, prior to the broadcast, Dimbleby writes:
“Global terrorism, global poverty and global warming form a toxic trio that
promise a catastrophe that will make the horrors of 9/11 look like the
Boston Tea Party.”
Dimbleby reports: “The grotesque distortions of the global market mean
that for every dollar the West dispatches to Africa in the form of aid, $2
are clawed back through subsidies and tariff barriers: a monumental rip-off
by the rich as they instruct the poor to accept ‘free’ trade or else. A
growing number of Africans, especially the young (mostly unemployed), use
radio, television and the internet to keep themselves disconcertingly
well-informed. The hypocrisies and injustices that are inflicted on them
drives [Ethiopian Prime Minister] Meles Zanawi to warn that Africa, no less
than the Middle East, could become the source of tomorrow’s 9/11. ‘Whether
it is people in the rural areas of Ethiopia or the centre of Manhattan, we
are in the same boat’.”
Dimbleby continues: “The president of the World Bank, James Wolfensohn,
tells me: ‘It is not that someone who is poor immediately becomes a
terrorist ... but what are the children going to do, young people with
similar values to our own, [who] can’t get a job and are frustrated in
everything they try to do?’”
Dimbleby points out that the West is not even on track to meet the UN
Millennium Goals to reduce world poverty by 50 per cent by 2015 and that the
UK Chancellor Gordon Brown concludes that “What is lacking is the political
Dimbleby explains that “If every Western nation were to contribute 0.7
per cent of GDP to overseas aid, write off the debt of poorest countries,
and eliminate agricultural subsidies to their own farmers, they could find
in the order of $785 billion dollars annually for development aid — more
than 12 times the present commitment.
“Which takes us — or should take us — from global poverty to global warming.
It is the greatest challenge facing humanity, to combat both at once — to
deliver justice, fairness and prosperity to the poor without destroying the
planet in the process. Already we are consuming the Earth’s natural but
finite resources faster than they can be replenished. Already Britain’s
chief scientific advisor, Sir David King, tells us global warming is a
greater threat than global terrorism.
“So what happens when the poor have their just deserts? Will we see the
melting of the ice-caps, catastrophic floods that drown hundreds of
thousands of people and turn millions into refugees and famished migrants?
Will we all perish in some Siberian or Saharan Armageddon? Or find ourselves
caught in a Malthusian end-game as we perish for lack of food and water? Or
will we start to control our profligate use of carbon fuels and persuade
whoever wins the American election that the resources of the planet must be
more equitably shared?”

“No real peace without justice”
This is an extract from Arundhati Roy’s 2004 Sydney Peace Prize lecture
delivered at the Seymour Center, Sydney, Australia, on 2 November 2004.
“There can be no real peace without justice. And without resistance there
will be no justice. Today, it is not merely justice itself, but the idea of
justice that is under attack….
“The assault on vulnerable, fragile sections of society is so complete, so
cruel and so clever that its sheer audacity has eroded our definition of
justice. It has forced us to lower our sights, and curtail our
“It is becoming more than clear that violating human rights is an
inherent and necessary part of the process of implementing a coercive and
unjust political and economic structure on the world. Increasingly, human
rights violations are being portrayed as the unfortunate, almost accidental,
fallout of an otherwise acceptable political and economic system. As though
they are a small problem that can be mopped up with a little extra attention
from some non-government organization….
“That invasion [of Iraq] will surely go down in history as one of the most
cowardly wars ever. It was a war in which a band of rich nations, armed with
enough nuclear weapons to destroy the world several times over, rounded on a
poor nation, falsely accused it of having nuclear weapons, used the United
Nations to force it to disarm, then invaded it, occupied it and are now in
the process of selling it.
“I speak of Iraq, not because everybody is talking about it, but because it
is a sign of things to come. Iraq marks the beginning of a new cycle. It
offers us an opportunity to watch the corporate-military cabal that has come
to be known as ‘empire’ at work. In the new Iraq, the gloves are off.
“As the battle to control the world’s resources intensifies, economic
colonialism through formal military aggression is staging a comeback. Iraq
is the logical culmination of the process of corporate globalization in
which neo-colonialism and neo-liberalism have fused. If we can find it in
ourselves to peep behind the curtain of blood, we would glimpse the pitiless
transactions taking place backstage.
“Invaded and occupied Iraq has been made to pay out $US200 million in
‘reparations’ for lost profits to corporations such as Halliburton, Shell,
Mobil, Nestlé, Pepsi, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Toys R Us. That’s apart
from its $US125 billion sovereign debt forcing it to turn to the IMF,
waiting in the wings like the angel of death, with its structural adjustment
program. (Though in Iraq there don’t seem to be many structures left to
“So what does peace mean in this savage, corporatized, militarized world?
What does peace mean to people in occupied Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Tibet
and Chechnya? Or to the Aboriginal people of Australia? Or the Kurds in
Turkey? Or the Dalits and Adivasis of India? What does peace mean to
non-Muslims in Islamic countries, or to women in Iran, Saudi Arabia and
Afghanistan? What does it mean to the millions who are being uprooted from
their lands by dams and development projects? What does peace mean to the
poor who are being actively robbed of their resources? For them, peace is

must also ask ourselves honestly who benefits from peace in the age of

justice could easily become advocacy for a kind of capitulation. And talking
of justice without unmasking the institutions and the systems that
perpetrate injustice is beyond hypocritical.
“It’s easy to blame the poor for being poor. It’s easy to believe that the
world is being caught up in an escalating spiral of terrorism and war.
That’s what allows George Bush to say: ‘You’re either with us or with the
terrorists.’ But that’s a spurious choice. Terrorism is only the
privatization of war. Terrorists are the free-marketeers of war. They
believe that the legitimate use of violence is not the sole prerogative of
It is mendacious to make moral distinction between the unspeakable brutality
of terrorism and the indiscriminate carnage of war and occupation. Both
kinds of violence are unacceptable. We cannot support one and condemn the
other.” (From: Sydney Morning Herald, Australia)
with Angels by Gitta Mallasz
An introduction by Betsy Whitfill
"Talking with Angels is the true story of four friends living in Hungary
who, in the midst of World War II, received teachings from Beings they
called Angels. Benjamin Creme's Master has confirmed that the 'Angels' were
in fact the Masters Jesus, Morya and Koot Hoomi, disguised (see 'Questions
and Answers' page in Share International January/February 2003).
"Living in a small village outside Budapest, Gitta Mallasz and her three
Jewish companions, Lili, Joseph, and his wife Hanna, had been deeply
disturbed by the increasing numbers of arrests. The period was one of
political tension and terror as the Nazis swept across Hungary, capturing
and deporting Jews."
In 1943 the friends began to receive totally unexpected communications
from beings they called 'Angels' Whom we now know to have been Masters. The
communications, dialogues and lessons continued for 17 months throughout the
extremely tense and difficult period as Hungarian citizens faced mounting
danger from both German troops and Hungarian Nazis.
The Masters communicated telepathically through Hanna who always retained
full consciousness during the teaching; as she spoke Their words Gitta wrote
down them down. The friends were taught to acknowledge and deal with their
own flaws and frailties; they were called to 'raise themselves up'. Gitta
was often overwhelmed by her emotions. Her 'Angel' taught that emotion and
sentiment blocked her contact with him. But, he said, if she raised herself
"up to the infinite" they could always be together. Her task was "to shine
with true feeling", to be so inwardly bright that anyone who looked at her
was awakened. False feeling, he told her, moves in waves - loving first one
thing, then another. True feeling is inwardly motionless, loves everything,
and "shines". He further explained that matter and spirit meet in the eyes,
where the force "ignites and radiates out". If, with emotion, you block the
rising force of true feeling at the throat, you choke it off, "But if you
offer it up to the Divine just as it reaches the throat, the force becomes
transformed into Light, which rises up and shines out through the eyes". In
one of the later dialogues the 'Angel' told the four: "Raise up your
feelings and the vibration will intensify. What raises feelings? Longings?
No. Faith? It is only a possibility. The force which raises feelings is the
offering of yourself, the giving of yourself."
The 'Angels' gave them assurance, support, insight, guidance and taught
them relentlessly the need for self-reliance, the rejection of old habits
and above all to learn to sweep aside anything in them which would block
their own divinity. "Serve! Serve day and night! To stand still is
forbidden! You have been entrusted with many talents and you must account
for them. Behold! It is wonderful to serve the Divine! Blossom - bear
flowers! I implore you!"
Gitta Mallasz survived and, although her friends did not, word reached
her later that they had managed to serve all those around them in a Nazi
concentration camp and reveal their true divine natures in order to raise
and comfort others.
