Benjamin Creme's main website. Benjamin is, perhaps, the most influential of the UK-based New Age spiritual teachers currently teaching openly in the West. His site contains up-to-date information about the Second Coming of Maitreya, the World Teacher (called "Christ" in church mythology), and about the spiritual connections between Maitreya and another important teacher, Sananda (known as "Jesus of Nazareth" in church stories). Alcuin's introduction to the Share International revelations can be found elsewhere on the blog here.
Here can be found some recent discourses by Sathya Sai Baba, the Cosmic Christ (not to be confused with Maitreya – the Planetary Christ, with whom he works closely). Sai Baba is based in India. Maitreya is based in London (UK). And Sananda (Jesus) is based just outside Rome (Italy).
One of the more recent books which Sananda ("Jesus of Nazareth" in an earlier incarnation) and his team have written is "A Course in Miracles" (1975). This is quite a demanding New Age Christian text. It is introduced here. And some of the most commonly asked questions about "A Course in Miracles" can be found here. This is the organisation that publishes the books of Alice Bailey. Alice's writings on esoteric spirituality were an important conduit of new revelation in the first half of the twentieth century, during the Armageddon period (1914-1945). Extracts of various of her books can be found here. There is a very full section dealing with meditation, including a piece on the spiritual significance of meditating during the full moon, and a Moon Chart. And there is an informed consideration of a New Age symbol, and an explanation of the spiritual background of The Great Invocation. This is a New Age Christian scripture and is, perhaps, fuller, less tampered with and, at certain important points, more accurate than the official biblical synoptic gospels. The full text can be read here.
