Book Description

July 1, 2010 9071484467 978-9071484469
This is a book about UFOs, but with a difference. It is written by someone who has worked with them and knows about them from the inside. Benjamin Creme sees the presence of UFOs as planned and of immense value for the people of Earth.

According to Creme, the UFOs and the people in them are engaged in a spiritual mission to ease humanity's lot and to save this planet from further and faster destruction. Our own planetary Hierarchy, led by Maitreya, the World Teacher, now living among us, works tirelessly with our Space Brothers and Sisters in a fraternal enterprise to restore sanity to this Earth.

Creme shows how all the planets in our solar system are inhabited, but on physical levels beyond human sight, the so-called etheric planes. The spacecraft are constructed on the same principle; they too are in etheric matter and have complete control of energies in space. Our Space Brothers are responsible not only for crop circles, but also for preparing the way on Earth for a new technology of light which will give us unlimited power from the sun. When we banish war for ever and are endeavoring to live in right relationship, that technology will be ours.

For the Spiritual Hierarchy of both our own and the sister planets of our system, right human relationship involves the end of competition and the beginning of an era of co-operation with -- sharing, justice and freedom as its hallmarks.

The book also addresses the emergence of new and more inclusive forms of education, which will be needed as we experience a huge shift in consciousness and a growing awareness of the richness of life ahead, unfettered by the stranglehold of commercialism and the dominance of market forces.

According to the author, the truth will soon be apparent for all to see, awakening humanity to their own divinity and the establishment of the rule of spiritual law on Earth.

Editorial Reviews


The Gathering of the Forces of Light: UFOs and Their Spiritual Mission, by Benjamin Creme A book review by Dick Larson The Gathering of the Forces of Light: UFOs and their Spiritual Mission (GFL) by Benjamin Creme is an invaluable document for those seeking information about the 'how' and 'why' of UFO activity, which has become so apparent lately. Are any of them real? If so, which ones? Why are they here? Why don't we see them all the time? What do the space people look like? This fascinating book holds the answers to these and many more questions about the space people and their spaceships, providing specific information not found elsewhere. GFL is also the definitive book for those who have been seeking compelling information on more effective approaches to education, including the parenting of children. It opens with Benjamin Creme's Preface wherein he explains the basic contents of the book: Part One about the Space Brothers and their UFOs, and Part Two about 'Education in the New Age'. Then he presents an article, 'The Time of Revelation', written for Share International magazine through Benjamin Creme by his Master, one of the 63 Masters of Wisdom who make up Earth's Spiritual Hierarchy. Benjamin Creme is in constant touch with this Master. It is this communication link with his Master as well as Creme's own extensive personal experiences that source the information in the book. This book is not mere conjecture and theory about UFOs and life on other planets, it overflows with facts, certainty and detail as the author weaves his story of our space visitors and their mission of mercy - a spiritual mission. An important topic There are caves inhabited by early humanity that have drawings of UFOs and space people on the walls. Benjamin Creme explains that the space people have been visiting humanity on Earth for 300,000 years. He wastes no time in spelling out the importance of this information: "There is an enormous amount of information of one kind or another about UFOs, some of it true, absolutely authentic, and masses of it utterly unreal and unauthentic. This is a huge and all-important subject." (p.7) Yet for over 60 years developed-nation governments have been denigrating and demonizing these loving, helpful space people as "aliens" who slaughter cattle, probe us, and, for unknown reasons, supposedly seek to cause harm to us. A cynical media including many feature films of Earthlings fighting-off space monsters further feeds the fear and confusion. Benjamin Creme explains the cause of these distortions by our governments. If the people knew there were wise visitors who wanted to help us, they would stop listening to the world's leaders and ask to hear from the Space Brothers about how to experience the purpose and joy of life more fully. So acknowledging the existence of such wonderful, advanced human beings would be committing political suicide. Another reason that governments deny UFOs' existence is because they are concerned about panic among the people whom they have taught to fear the UFOs. So governments declare that UFOs are (or are not) harmful while, at the same time, denying their existence. Benjamin Creme's Master states: "Yet every government has unassailable proof of the existence, creativity and superior technology of these brave and harmless visitors from the sister planets of our system." (p.6) Humanity exists throughout all of cosmos. However, these visitors from space do not come from the Pleiades or from Sirius, as many think. "There is no overt contact between our civilization and that of the Pleiades," says Benjamin Creme. (p.47) A few are from Saturn, and Jupiter, but most of the UFO craft and crews, who are here in their thousands, come from our neighboring planets of Venus and Mars. Mr Creme describes at least two major world crises where we received help behind the scenes from our Space Brothers to prevent disaster. The first was in the beginning of the cold war when Russia blocked off their zone and separated East Berlin from West Berlin. The second instance was the Cuban Missile Crisis. In both situations, the US Presidents at those times received advice from a space brother about how to avert disaster and, with the help of the space people withdrawing negative energy, a very possible nuclear Third World War was avoided twice. The mission Just as our physical body is a system and when part of it breaks down, the rest of it rushes in to help the healing, likewise, our solar system is an entity - a confederation of planets - that has a Plan and a Great Consciousness overseeing that Plan wherein a similar healing can occur. "The Hierarchy [Masters] of all the planets work together in an interplanetary parliament." (p.28) Planet Earth is holding back the evolution of the solar system because we have not stopped war or pollution. We have taken wrong turns and need help getting back on the path of the Plan. So other parts of the solar system - fellow humans from other planets - have rushed in to help. They are here on a rescue mission - a spiritual mission. Pollution Their current mission takes place in at least five primary areas which are described in detail in this amazing book. The first part of their mission is to help keep our planet alive by cleaning up our pollution. With huge ships, the space people are neutralizing much of our pollution - especially nuclear - in the air, land and water and have been doing so for 24 hours a day for years. Without their help, our planet would be dying. "The nature of the Space Brothers is to serve. They make great sacrifices to help our planet." (p.15) They cannot clean it all up because it is not their mess. So they are limited by karma, but they do what they can until we wake up and clean it up ourselves. The greatest danger is from nuclear pollution which is spewing forth from all our nuclear power plants and nuclear bomb tests. Benjamin Creme tells us that a source of much confusion and misinformation comes from the limitations of our science. We are only aware of three levels of physical matter: solid, liquid and gas. But there are 4 levels above the gaseous level called etheric matter. It is physical matter as well, but not solid physical. So one cannot see etheric physical matter unless one has etheric vision. Very few of us do. The UFOs are made up of this etheric physical matter, as are the crews that fly them. They see each other just as we do, yet we cannot see them - unless they lower the vibration of their body and/or their spaceship so they temporarily become solid physical. Then we can see them, but only when they want us to. They do not want to frighten people, so they are careful about showing themselves. If someone is afraid of them, they simply disappear - they leave. Etheric nuclear matter is leaking from our nuclear plants and bomb testing, but our instruments are too crude to detect it. The Master says that this potent nuclear pollution is the cause of early Alzheimer's disease and dramatically increased births of autistic children. It breaks down our immune systems and makes us subject to diseases - flus, cancers, etc - that we would normally be able to resist. Crop circles The second part of the UFOs' mission is to create the beautiful crop circles appearing around the world. These crop circles, which bend but (almost miraculously) never break or kill the crops, make a wondrous "calling card" to tell us they are really here. Benjamin Creme says it beautifully: "If you have eyes to see, this sign tells you that someone of tremendous intelligence, skill, tact and reserve has touched the edges of our garment, and said: 'We are here'." (p.16) Another reason for the crop circles, created by thought and made by the UFOs in mere seconds, is to mark the energetic magnetic grid of our planet. This, combined with the sun's energy, is for future use as part of the Science of Light - a gift to us from the Space Brothers once we have stopped wars - and will provide pollution-free, cost-free, near-endless energy for our planet. The 'star' The third part of the Space Brothers' mission is to provide a beautiful and unmistakable sign of a magnificent, unprecedented event that will happen soon. Two thousand years ago, the great teacher, Jesus, came to inaugurate the Age of Pisces and bring his teaching of the Love of God. The wise men followed a 'star' as it moved through the heavens and came to rest over Bethlehem, where it shone down on the birthplace of Jesus, so the magi could honor him. That was not a star. It was a spaceship the size of two-and-a-half football fields made especially for that purpose. Today there is another 'star' in the heavens announcing the imminent arrival of the teacher for the Age of Aquarius - Maitreya, the World Teacher, come to teach the purpose behind the Will of God. But it is not really a star. Again, the Space Brothers have created four special giant UFOs the size of five football fields combined - one North, South, East and West around the planet - so that one star can be seen by everyone. They shine and twinkle like stars, but they do not otherwise act like stars. They move, they flash colors and they have been known to respond to human thought. YouTube is loaded with footage and videos of Maitreya's 'star', as is the Share International website ( The 'stars' will remain there, visible on clear nights and days, until the World Teacher comes forward and addresses humanity on His Day of Declaration. Forces of Light The fourth part of the UFOs' mission here is to be part of the "Forces of Light" helping Earth's humanity to move forward in our evolution. The space people are "working with Maitreya daily, hourly, moment to moment." (p.20) "We think of the forces of light as the Esoteric Hierarchy: the Christ and His group of Masters, Who make up, with all of Their disciples, the Forces of Light of our planet - They are gathering together a host of people from all over the world to work with Them in this coming time." (p. 26) The New Group of World Servers, created by Maitreya in 1922, are included. All are the "Forces of Light" preparing the wa...

About the Author

Benjamin Creme, a British artist and long-time student of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, has become a principal source of information about the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher. In 1959, Creme received his first telepathic message from a Master of Wisdom. Not long after, he was informed that Maitreya would return within 20 years and that he (Creme) would be given the opportunity to play an active role in this event if he chose to do so.

In 1972, under this Master's direction, Creme began a period of arduous and intensive training, as a result of which their telepathic contact became, and remains, continuous and immediate. This relationship has given him access to constant up-to-date information on the progress of Maitreya's emergence and the total conviction necessary to present that information to a skeptical world.

Creme lectures by invitation throughout Europe, North America and the Pacific Rim, and is regularly interviewed on radio and television. He receives no remuneration for this work and makes no claims about his own spiritual status. His books have been translated and published in numerous languages by groups worldwide who have responded to his message. He is also editor of Share International, a monthly magazine read in over 70 countries.

"My task", Creme says, "has been to make the initial approach to the public, to help create a climate of hope and expectancy into which Maitreya can emerge without infringing our freewill."

Says Max Allen of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: "The Maitreya story is important, and Creme is an admirable spokesman.

More About the Author

A lifelong student of the Ageless Wisdom teachings -- first made available to the public in the late 1800s by H.P. Blavatsky and later by Alice A. Bailey -- Benjamin Creme has traveled the world for more than 30 years informing people that the greatest event in history is now unfolding. Humanity's Elder Brothers -- the Masters of Wisdom -- are once again among us. Soon these ancient guardians of the human race will be working openly at our side, showing us how to live together in peace -- with sharing, justice and Earth stewardship as the keynotes of a new civilization.

In the 16 inspiring and provocative books which have emerged from his lectures, Creme paints an ever more detailed picture of humanity's destiny, both worldly and spiritually. "We are talking about nothing less than the total transformation of every aspect of our lives", he says. Creme's message is both profound and immensely practical. Each book covers a vast range of topics: from meditation and the growth of consciousness to political and economic change, from initiation and group work to ecology and world service. Compelling explanations are offered for the ever-increasing 'miraculous' or unexplained phenomena such as weeping Madonnas, crosses of light, healing waters, crop circles and UFOs. Creme also clarifies misunderstandings about the antichrist and the 'last judgment'.

In close contact with, and trained by, a Master of Wisdom since 1959, Mr. Creme has access to constant up-to-date information on the progress of Maitreya's emergence and the total conviction necessary to present that information to a skeptical world. He is chief editor of Share International, a monthly magazine read in over 70 countries that addresses Maitreya's emergence as well as the changes that are both needed and actually occurring in every field of endeavor to bring about a more just and compassionate global society.

Creme lectures by invitation throughout Europe, North America and the Pacific Rim, and is regularly interviewed on radio and television. He receives no remuneration or royalties for this work and makes no claims about his own spiritual status. His books have been translated and published in numerous languages by groups worldwide who have responded to his message.

"My task," Creme says, "has been to make the initial approach to the public, to help create a climate of hope and expectancy into which Maitreya can emerge without infringing our free will."

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a "Wow!" Book July 12, 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
Here is a book about The Things That Matter: "you," "me," the world we live in; the present, the future- even- "the meaning of life."
Can't really apologize, if I'm gushing over this read; the beauty of it is the way it illuminates the essence, the heart of these issues.
The author, Benjamin Creme, offers, it seems to me, great insight into the answers to ageless questions: 'What is it, really, to be human?,' 'How does "planet Earth" fit into the greater scheme of Cosmos?,' 'What, if there is one, is the Plan for Humanity?,"'
Further: 'How can humanity solve its most pressing problems?,' 'What is the UFO phenomenon- What does it mean?'- Same for the crop-circles.'- What is the significance behind these spectacular, out-of-the-ordinary manifestations?'
And finally: 'Is Peace possible?'- 'How can we create it?- 'What is the yet to be discovered 'technology of the future'- that will, for example, meet all of our energy needs?'- 'What kind of education can truly educate for Life?'
If a penetrating exploration of questions like these, interests you- you'll enjoy this book as much as I did. Pretty amazing- and inspiring; a 'message of promise and hope.'

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that changes our lives!! August 4, 2011
Format:Perfect Paperback
This book is absolutely amazing. It brings together a whole range of areas which are currently affecting the world today and shows how they are all threaded together in a plan. It explains with clarity and examples, how the increasingly recorded phenomenon of ufos and crop circles are all manifestations of people with a higher level of consciousness. And more importantly, that we are all connected throughout the galaxy. It is heartening, optimistic but not sentimental or new agey. It argues that we, humanity, need to pull our socks up and address the key issues facing us today, but that we are also being helped and shows how, why and by whom.

Would recommend this book to anyone interested in the future of the planet, and the development of humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars UFOs: A SPIRITUAL MISSION? March 19, 2012
By Lars
Format:Perfect Paperback
Now here's a book on UFOs that makes sense. It is full of very specific information about the spacecraft and their crews: where they are from, who flies them, why we can only see them some of the time, what they are doing here, and why is their mission considered a spiritual mission. All this information and more is inside. And it make sense! It doesn't read like a bunch of worn-out rumors. There are ideas and information in this book that I have never read anywhere else about UFOs. Fascinating how they are helping us and we don't even know it. What a gold mine this is. I recommend it highly if you have even the slightest interest in UFOs.You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Enlightening Information on UFOs in years November 6, 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback
For years a lot of mininformation has been put out by those who would keep humanity in fear about our brothers and sisters on other planets. Certainly comparable to the work of George Adamski, Creme's book provides the reader with a message of much needed hope. UFOs and their occupants are not to be feared. They are here to help.

I was deeply moved by the prospect that we are not alone, that there are those who have come to help humanity. They, together with the World Teacher and the Masters, know the answers and they are willing to share with us the way forward to a better world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly regarded book... October 5, 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
Speaker and artist Benjamin Creme, in his new book, The Gathering of the Forces of Light, writes very concisely and with such influence that it is very easy and appropriate for a reader to learn and believe more about the enlightenment awaiting humanity. In his book Mr. Creme discusses the Space Brothers, which inhabit all planets of our solar system, but on physical levels impenetrable by the human eye. This book discusses the great alliance comprised of the Space Brothers and of our Spiritual Hierarchy headed by Maitreya which aims to elevate humanity away from competition, strife, and the horrors of war. Mr. Creme has brought forth a very timely and to be highly regarded book that integrates and motivates society into its highest potential. A must read for those looking for and walking a spiritual path.

When I studied physics at the university years ago I thought that life in space must be very rare indeed. Maybe thousands of lightyears away another inhabited planet might exist, whose inhabitants we probably would never meet. How different is the picture that Benjamin Creme presents. According to Mr. Creme all planets in our own solar system are inhabited. Some civilizations are much further developed than your own humanity and some are less developed. All these civilizations form according to Mr. Creme a spiritual brotherhood of which most of humanity knows little or nothing. If we look with our telescopes to Mars and Venus, however, we only see bare rocks or liquid oceans. We do not see beautiful cities. According to Benjamin Creme we have a limited picture on the nature of matter. Esoteric teachings talk about seven states of matter, of which we only know three: solid matter, liquid matter and gas. Above these three states there exist four more so called etheric states of matter. The earth is at this moment the only planet in our solar system where life exists on the dense physical planes. On the other planets of our solar system life only exists on the subtler etheric planes. According to esoteric teachings there will come a time when we will know and see these subtler states of matter too. How can we know this is true? For me personally the crop circles form a hint of truth of the reality of life on the other planets. How can these intricate creations ever be made by others than extraterrestrial beings? From their etheric levels of excistence they impress these beautiful creations in our dense physical world. Is Mr. Creme's picture of extraterrestrial reality true? The near future will learn it.
