Premises and Principles of Maitreya
Maitreya offers Premises and Principles as guidelines for living for all individuals. A premise is seen as so fundamental it is agreed to be accepted as accurate. A principle guides how to live.
Maitreya’s Premise 1:
Life is precious (including you)
Life should be respected by the one living it and by all others. This means you are responsible for your safety and wellbeing. That of others. This implies the safety of all individuals and groups of individuals at all times. This implies that the freedom to express yourself in any way that is respectful to yourself and all others is mandatory. Live your authentic self in the fullest possible expression as much as possible; this shows self-respect.
Maitreya’s Premise 2:
Life is very complicated and changes all the time. Therefore, life cannot be understood by anyone but can be lived and studied.
All individuals and groups of individuals are equal individuals, and groups of individuals are expected to see each other as neighbors, friends, or family. Each individual can have multiple roles, one active at any time. Individuals and groups of individuals can differ in experience, in capabilities, in purpose, and role. Also, individuals and groups of individuals will recognize – as they can – each other. Individuals and groups of individuals will ask each other for assistance and give it when asked. The control and limitation of individuals and groups of individuals are not acceptable.
Maitreya’s Principle 3: Live life to the fullest
This means you live all aspects of life, every experience you encounter, or search out, to the fullest, meaning accepting it fully. If you damage another individual through disrespectful actions, there is damage in all involved and responsible for all. Each individual that is involved needs to recognize and accept this responsibility, preferably out-loud and with all involved together.
Each individual is responsible for living and accepting the experience, or if needed, ask for guidance and support. The individual(s) who caused the damage should recognize and accept this damage done to others and apologize. The others, in turn, should give this damage back so all can be free to live their life in their way again, without limitations or debt-relations.
This action is called forgiving. If an individual is unable to recognize and accept the responsibility and is considered likely to repeat the damaging action. A new obligation for all-around arises to either help the individual develop or limit the opportunity to cause further damage.
Maitreya’s Principle 4: Life is a development
This means all individuals and groups will learn as they can when they can. This means sharing of knowledge and experience (teaching) is encouraged, and belief is discouraged – it is always your knowledge and experience in your life that is important. Thus, this also means asking questions and finding the answers (together) is encouraged. Therefore, meeting others and learning who they are and what they do is essential. The sum of the individual’s development, self-limiting convictions, and non-accepted experiences and their balancing mechanisms from the past define the way the individual sees the world and, therefore, the way to respond to it and act.
Maitreya’s Principle 5: There is time to work and time to rest
This means all individuals and groups will learn as they can when they can. This means sharing of knowledge and experience (teaching) is encouraged, and belief is discouraged. It is always your knowledge and experience in your life that is important. This means asking questions and finding the answers (together) is encouraged. Therefore meeting others and learning who they are and what they do is essential.
Maitreya’s Principle 6: Respect for the future
This means that individuals and groups of individuals will think about this type of decision before making it down to the 7th generation (a very long time into the future). This is the responsibility of each individual as well as a shared responsibility. If in doubt, seek assistance from an individual with a guiding role.
We share a way-of-working: guidance, empowerment and support in such a way that respects the individual’s right to decide about its future / life / way of being.
Individuals and groups of individuals that do not live or act according to these premises and principles are guided back to doing so in any way possible by anyone who can. In doing so, any damage to themselves and others should be named, taken responsibility for and guided towards minimizing future effects of the damage.
