9781571743763: Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Beings: Experiences of an American Diplomat with Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom

All major religions of the world are expecting him. Christians know him as the Christ. Jews are still awaiting the Messiah. Hindus anticipate the coming of Krishna. Muslims are expecting the Imam Mahdi. And Buddhists call him the Fifth (Maitreya) Buddha. The names are all different, but many believe they all refer to the same person: a world Teacher who is among us now, and is called Maitreya. But he does not come as a religious leader. He is here as a guide for people of all religions, all countries, all societies. In this age of crisis, he is here to inspire all of us to put down the sword of religious, social, and economic strife, and to seek justice based on sharing and global cooperation of the human family. His message is that of all great teachers of the ageless wisdom: peace, love, the golden rule.

Some very prominent world leaders and celebrities, and many others, are aware of Maitreya's reappearance, but are not yet prepared to go public due to the possible effect on their professional reputations; however, many believe that it's just a matter of time before everyone will recognize that the world teacher is back, living among us.

Wayne Peterson, a former American diplomat and director of the Fulbright Scholarship program, tells the story of his own extraordinary encounters with Maitreya, and why Maitreya has returned. It is a story of strange, fascinating events and penetrating wisdom and an inspirational message of hope for the future. It is a story that deals with nothing less than humanity's opportunity to redefine its institutions and beliefs based on the ancient wisdom common to all traditions. Above all, it is a story, both personal and planetary, of love, and of those extraordinary spiritual beings who embody it to the world.

From the Author:

From the ending of the cold war to negotiations for a Palestinian homeland, dramatic and unexpected changes have characterized the last decade of this century. For over 32 years, first as a member of the Peace Corps and the U.S. Diplomatic Service, and later as a director of the Fulbright Scholarship Program, I have had a special vantage point and perspective on this tide of changes that has swept over the world. I have seen first-hand some of the most devastating problems and been a party to a few relatively simple solutions which ended up improving the lives of millions of people. Experience has taught me what remains to be done to create a world that works for everyone.

During these extraordinary times, while engaged in government service, I was drawn into a personal journey from what one might call the worldly 'halls of power' to a realm of infinitely greater power and splendour, esoterically known as the Hall of Wisdom. In this latter 'supra-world' one is concerned with the inner side of life, the indwelling spiritual essence which, through continuous expansion of consciousness, can intuitively distinguish between the true and the false, the real and the unreal, and give one a quality of life undreamed of by most people today.

What I did not initially know was that many of my colleagues in government and diplomatic circles had had similar experiences and had also been contacted by members of a group of extraordinary beings, who might be called the elder brothers of humanity, custodians of the Divine Plan for our evolution. World leaders who are household names have privately confirmed their knowledge of and cooperation with this unfolding plan. And many thousands of ordinary people from all walks of life have seen, experienced, or spoken directly with one or more of these Perfected Men.

It is my intention not only to share with you my personal experiences with these beneficent Teachers, but also to provide you with a glimpse into their vast mission and the opportunities we have for collaboration.

The Path upon which I have trodden, at first unknowingly and later with serious intent, is open to all seekers after Truth and has nothing to do with one's religious affiliation or life circumstances. It is a journey of self-discovery that never ends.

Combining my experience in both the 'outer' and 'inner' worlds, and in spite of what the evening news might suggest, I have come to a place of deep conviction that the future is bright indeed. As my story unfolds in the following pages you will discover the basis for my optimism and may, perhaps, be inspired to look more deeply into the considerable body of knowledge about this 'Ageless Wisdom' which is as near as your local bookstore, your computer-or your true Self.

From the Back Cover:

"The experience began at a gathering in the living room of friends in Washington, DC.... When I opened my eyes again, I found myself in a different room. I was lying face down on a dark gray carpeted floor, and next to my head was a hole large enough for a human body to pass through easily. When I looked down the hole, it began to close and I only had time to see the tunnel of light and, far below, my friends sitting very quietly as if sound asleep."

Wayne Peterson, a career diplomat and program director with the United States Government for 32 years, was about to meet someone he had waited for since he was four years old-the Christ. This meeting was the next step in a series of startling and unexplainable experiences that began in 1982 when Peterson saw Merv Griffin interview Benjamin Creme about his book "The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom".

Although that interview hinted at the fulfillment of a childhood promise, Peterson investigated Creme's claims with some skepticism. In "Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Beings" he shares the fruits of his 18-year search and his discovery that we are not alone: Humanity is inspired and helped at all levels of endeavor-from the personal to the planetary-by great spiritual beings who are now living among us. Seeking proof that his experiences were true, Peterson found it-in his personal life as well as within the highest corridors of power.

Wayne Peterson brings you a message of hope for the future and evidence of humanity's opportunity to redefine its institutions based on the Ancient Wisdom Teaching common to all traditions-to love one another.
