Religion on other planets – insights by an alien intelligence

Religion on other planets_title


Extraterrestrial beings have given countless messages to Earth. One particular contactee who received more communications than probably any other, is Dr. George King (1919-1997) – Master of Yoga and Founder of The Aetherius Society.

Below in bold is an extract of a communication given on January 29th 1955 by the Master Aetherius – a being from a higher material plane of the planet Venus; not this physical plane. This highly advanced spiritual intelligence spoke through Dr. King while in a samadhic trance state.

In italics is commentary by Mark Bennett – an International Director of The Aetherius Society, and a Minister in the Aetherius Churches.

The Master Aetherius speaks:

I will say a word about our religion.

Yes, alien intelligences do have religion!

But the religion referred to here by the Master Aetherius is a world away from much of the religion practiced upon Earth. Theirs is not a religion of dogmas, petty rules and contradictions. Their religion is one of pure, unadulterated spirituality, as he goes on to describe.

It is simplicity.

Their religion is – “simplicity”.

What is simplicity?

If something is simple – it can be understood; it is self-evident; all its different components fit into one harmonious whole.

Compare this to our religions – where often the theology is complexity compounded by complexity, such complexity an effort to explain logically that which is illogical – and hence can never be self-evident; and all this creates a mishmash of competing elements, each incongruous with the other.

The Masters on the higher planes of Venus have vastly superior technology to our own – and yet their lives are simple. Simple in the sense that they do not concern themselves with anything that does not really matter. Their whole existence is about following and applying the Divine Laws of the universe – in service, and to further enlighten themselves and their world, to this end.

We believe in one God, all is one …

This is not the “one God” in the sense of some religions on Earth – who regard theirs as the one and only God and everyone else’s God as being false.

The God that they worship on Venus is literally ALL. The whole of creation is ONE – and this whole is God, and yet God is even more than this, because God is also the creator of this whole, and exists as greater than this whole even now after creation – for It is above all time and all space. It is the potential and the perfect essence within all things. And yet it is also all things in the literal sense – but it has wrapped these things up in and as matter, and so forth.

… although one part may disturb another part and the resultant disturbance causes an appearance of disunity.

Note that: “appearance” of disunity. All things are one all the time. But, to us – the lower aspects of the One God – there seems to be disunity. This is a paradox, in that the appearance is ‘real’, and yet at the same time, in essence this appearance is just that – an appearance – not timeless reality.

If you think about it you will see that it is because of the unity of the whole system that one part can disturb another part. The fact that if you steal of your brother, that ritual affects a man in China, we accepted many years ago and we have based the whole of our philosophy, our religion, upon this definite law of oneness.

If one person does something bad, it affects everything else to some degree – albeit perhaps only minutely. It lowers the vibration, and affects the karma of the whole world. On a positive note, every time we do something good – something spiritual – something unselfish – it raises the vibration and improves world karma.

An analogy for this would be a cell in the human body. Any diseased cell will to some degree compromise the overall health of that individual – and any really healthy cell will improve the health of the whole person.

That is why, don’t you see, we must be interested in your little Bikini tea parties.

The Master Aetherius is referring to the numerous atomic bomb tests performed near the Bikini Islands in the 1950s. The effects of such “tea parties” have far more implications than Earth scientists are currently aware of.

You not only affect your own system but you are definitely beyond any doubt affecting ours as well. The whole planetary system, my friends, is one family linked together with very strong magnetic links, which has come from a common womb, that of the Sun, one family that feels strongly for the rest of its relations. So our religion takes this into account, this oneness, this simplicity.

Our foolishness and wickedness with regard to nuclear weaponry affects not only us – all of us upon Earth – but also affects our planetary neighbors.

Very few know what it means “Be still and know that I Am God”, and yet although it is a very simple statement, it is one of the greatest in the Interplanetary System.

Believe it or not, “Be still and know that I am God” appears in the Bible, in Psalm 46. But the meaning ascribed to it by the Cosmic Masters is far deeper than what might appear to be its meaning in the Bible.

In short, it means that through the stillness (physical and mental) of deep meditation we begin to realize our oneness with God. This is a paradox – in that God, as the totality of creation, is all movement – and yet, as unmanifest Divinity, is indeed total stillness.

So when I say our religion is simple, I do not mean that the young people would find it simple, I mean that it is religion or a belief that recognizes reality is unchangeability …

“Young people” here refers to those less advanced in terms of spiritual awareness.

That which changes is not true reality, in its deepest sense. Reality cannot change – it simply is. The only thing that cannot change is God itself. Therefore God is the one reality.

… your own worthy Masters say just the same thing. We are trying to make you realize that your own Masters on Terra have told you the way, but you have strayed from that way.

“Terra” is a Latin word meaning Earth, often used in this way by the Cosmic Masters.

There are of course great spiritual Masters who are Earth people – just like you and me, except that unlike you and me they have worked extremely hard for countless lives in spiritual ways, and thereby achieved their Mastery.

All my talk has been said before, hundreds of times, on your very world. There is not anything new. If there were one thing new it would mean the Absolute had not put that thing there in the beginning, that is why there can be nothing new. There can be a modern presentation, but that modern presentation is just a 1955 label for something trillions of years old. The Ancient Wisdom was written in the beginning by the Hand of the Absolute Architect of the palatial system.

Since God is the creator of all things – all things come from the “mind” of God as it existed in the timelessness before the universe began. Therefore nothing is truly new – it was all thought into being ‘prior to’ the inception of time – as potential.

Everything ever to exist in creation moves from this state of potential into manifestation, just as God planned it in the beginning.

Our religion is not anything new but what yours should be; our education is not anything new, but what yours should be; our political system is not anything new, but what yours should be.

Our religion, education and political systems are all fundamentally flawed. With little exception, all three exclude the one most important point of all – that God is within and God is all. These systems on Venus are the very opposite of ours – and, as a result, are extremely successful!

Our belief in an Absolute Architect, an Absolute Creator, thinking into being certain laws which are immutable, these are the things we study first …

What an amazing concept!

The “laws which are immutable” – be they ‘physical’ like gravity, or more ‘spiritual’ such as reincarnation – were all thought into being by God. And yet they are what God is – for they, like God, are immutable, i.e. unchangeable. They are, in short, what God made itself to be.

…secondly we apply these laws to our political system and our educational system.

Imagine politics being the result of a true understanding of the Divine Laws of the universe!

We do not try to get the laws to fit in with our preconceived ideas of what things should be, we make our systems fit the law.

On Earth, all too often we invent religious laws – we even invent the absurd concept of a petty, vengeful, human-like “God”. We then wonder why our prayers so often seem unanswered, and our prophecies unfulfilled.

When you do that, you will become luminous in the heavens, you will immediately go one step further upwards, you will immediately be showered by Flying Saucers and Mother Ships, call them what you like, who will come from planets to walk your Earth. But they will not come in great numbers like that until you have gone forward to make your present system subservient to the Law of God.

Unlike false religion – which relies on ‘blind faith’ because it doesn’t work and isn’t true, if we actually applied the true Divine Laws to our personal daily lives and to our global systems of politics, education and religion, we would see results – immediately! But only if enough people made this fundamental positive change.

One result of living and acting in accordance with the natural laws of the universe would be the mass-landing of spacecraft from other planets – and interaction with highly advanced compassionate extraterrestrial intelligences. What a wonderful, amazing, awesome thought!

It seems very strange that thousands of years ago most of the beings upon Terra did that, and then started the great system of involution, the great drop into sin, and now you are starting on the way back, a way back that will be hard, a way back that will be difficult.

In the days of Lemuria, and, to a lesser extent, in the days of Atlantis, mankind upon Earth did achieve a relatively advanced level of culture – technologically and spiritually; much more advanced than today, in fact.

With the nuclear destruction (by mankind) of both these civilizations, however, we have gone backwards – involving rather than evolving. However, no being in creation is ever beyond redemption. We can all make the effort to learn from the mistakes of our past, and move forwards towards enlightenment. Ultimately, enlightenment – even salvation – is not for the chosen few – but for all. It is simply the case that the more we work in spiritual ways, the more quickly this will be achieved.

Our journey through evolution will not be easy. Nothing truly worthwhile ever is – and this is the most worthwhile thing of all!

It will be very easy for some of you to say, “that fellow was talking about things that Mr So and So should do something about but not myself.” I am talking to you in this way because all of you can do something about these things.

People often feel powerless – or perhaps use so-called powerlessness as an excuse. However, God does not expect anything from anyone that is impossible for them. We can all make the effort to help ourselves and one another – and the whole planet – to become “luminous in the heavens”, as the Master Aetherius put it.

If you will raise your consciousness a little bit, you will raise the consciousness of the whole world a little bit. A grave responsibility lies upon the shoulders of all of you; you can reject it or act upon it.

It is a grave responsibility to know that we can really make a difference to the future of our whole world – a difference that to some degree even impacts life on other planets! But it is also a fantastic opportunity – an opportunity to help write the glorious ending to this tumultuous chapter in the cosmic history of mankind!

This is our opportunity to help build a new, and better, world!

    Thank you for this amazing blog post. I’ve learnt so much and it’s give me me perspective and food for thought in how I’d like to conduct my life. Blessings and thanks to you.

    • Darren on December 6, 2017 at 1:13 pm

      Thank you, Bimstar. It’s a joy to hear that such priceless wisdom has had such an impact on you. May God bless you on your journey, Darren.

  2. Lawrence Carson on December 8, 2017 at 2:18 pm

    So I am very curious about what those “word maps” … “word pointers” … are pointing to? if the word “God” is pointing to the changeless … is that the same as what the word “Consciousness” is pointing to … the word “Reality” is pointing to … the word “Life Eternal” is pointing to? Are all of those word maps pointing to the same identical Territory?

  3. Kunle Kolawole on December 10, 2017 at 11:58 pm

    How I wish my people in Nigeria could have access to this piece, study and understand the message herein. We are too dogmatic on religious affairs. Thank you sir for the effort.
    I will on my part make this wisdom available to as many people as I could reach. Thank you once more.

    • Darren on December 11, 2017 at 12:49 pm

      Hi Kunle! Fantastic to hear – it is a message every single one of us can use. Blessings, Darren

  4. Mateo Sarmiento on December 11, 2017 at 7:10 am

    Thank you very much for this wonderfull words of truth. This is very, very interesting and clarifying. But i have a question thats being wondering above my head: Why human kind drop in the involution of the self, in first place? what are the reasons by which humanity fall in to dream-state of consciousness? If you know something or if you know Master Aetherius say something about it. I will be extremely grateful. Thanks for the attention.

    • Darren on December 11, 2017 at 1:17 pm

      Hi Mateo, thanks for writing!
      In the introduction to The Nine Freedoms, Dr. King describes the fall of mankind after the destruction of the planet Maldek, a horrendous crime, and the subsequent destruction of other high civilizations known as Lemuria and Atlantis over the next 18 million years or so since coming to the planet Earth. The limitations we experience are the direct result of our wrong thought and action throughout the millennia. There is no great mystery; our experiences are the natural consequences of our choices according to the law of karma. As we begin to make better choices with our freewill, in particular to serve others unconditionally, we will start to transmute these karmic limitations and experience greater and greater Realization of God, or Reality. What do you think? I look forward to hearing from you again. Blessings, Darren

      • Mateo Sarmiento on December 13, 2017 at 4:32 am

        I believe its true Darren. And the reason i asked you those question its because im deeply interested and fully committed in the search for a way to awake myself in order to help others around and live in harmony. Please tell me Darren, which is the path of Aetherius society?
        PS: I live as a painter in South America. Im 23 and im looking forward to live in LA in the following year, if thats Gods will. So maybe there is possibility to know, first hand, the way of master George King. So this words are not empty but full of chance. God Bless you to.

        • Darren on December 15, 2017 at 3:57 am

          Hi Mateo,
          Great to hear from you!

          It is rare to find people today devoted to the search for spiritual truth – it is what draws all people to The Aetherius Society.

          King Yoga is the name that has been given by The Aetherius Society to the path of cosmic teachings, spiritual practices and service left to us by the Master George King. It is about working not just for our own enlightenment but for the enlightenment of the world as a whole well – in your words: “to help others around and live in harmony”. You can read more about it here:

          Where are you based in South America? I think it is fantastic to have a spiritual goal like that. Remember: God’s will (Divine Will) is your will because ALL is God. If you work with sufficient intensity towards your spiritual goal you can make it happen.

          In the meantime while you are based there I really encourage you to tune in online to our broadcasts of The Twelve Blessings on Saturdays and Sundays. It will help you to feel connected to others and to this spiritual work, and to work towards your goal too because you will be improving your karma through unselfish spiritual service to others. You can learn more here:

            Thank you Darren your words give me strength cause i stop feeling alone. I live in Quito-Ecuador a small country full of simple people capable of give love, tenderness and joy. I am full of love here around my family and in this beautiful life, but i feel the call of a deep search. So I want to tune the twelve blessings Saturdays and Sundays. Maybe some day talk with you and exchange some valuable espiritual info that i have.

          • Darren on December 22, 2017 at 8:51 am

            Hi Matheo! I understand your yearning for spiritual truth. Never let it die! Feed it and help it to grow 🙂
            I’ll write you an email and we can stay in touch. Blessings, Darren

    • Peter on May 23, 2018 at 8:13 am

      Hello Matheo. Google “Aetherius Live” it’s a podcast show that is broadcast online by the Aetherius Society every month. (the third Tuesday of each month). It’s a brilliant show.
      There is around a hundred or so previous shows you can listen to as well! It’s well worth looking for!
      Good luck 🙂.

      • Darren on May 24, 2018 at 5:07 am

        Thanks for that endorsement, Peter! Stay inspired! Blessings, Darren

    These transmissions do make sense of the scriptures. Sometimes you want to give up on that book call the Bible but still the words do burn within our hearts and you cant let it go. God is the beginning and the fullness of all life form great to know we are a part of a great system and we are not and we’re never alone. ❤️

    • Darren on May 20, 2018 at 6:36 am

      Hi Elaine!

      I thought you might appreciate the Master Jesus speaking about God in The Twelve Blessings:



  6. Theo on November 10, 2019 at 2:03 am

    I came across this while looking for something else but I can bring myself to leave without telling the truth. The very bible that you refer to here (in a twisted way) says in the last days people would gather to themselves false teachers who would tell them what their itching ears want to hear and they would turn away from listening to truth and wander off into myths.

    That is exactly what is going on here. But God is still merciful even now, so turn away from these lies and call on the name of the son of God, Jesus Christ who is the only one who can save you. Do you not see that things are happening exactly as how the bible said they would?? The earth is shaking beneath our feet, natural disasters are only going to get worse, tensions between nations will reach a booming point soon. How long will you keep to these lies? turn to the true Jesus and be saved.

    • Darren on November 10, 2019 at 5:21 am

      Hi Theo,

      I don’t think a message of love and selfless service to others is a false teaching. Didn’t Jesus teach the way to God through love and service? Are you saying you don’t agree with these simple teachings that talk about Oneness and warn us about the implications of atomic weapons testing?

      There are many false teachers these days, yes. But are you so sure that the false teachers you have read about refer to the Cosmic Masters, and not to the false teachers that have grown even within your own religion and elsewhere? How many so-called religious preachers wallow in wealth and hypocrisy, and tell their congregations to pray for more money, a better job, or their own success, rather than for greater peace and enlightenment in our world? How many encourage their congregations to damn and kill people who do not follow their “way”? How many withhold truths about karma and reincarnation (which were struck from the Bible), and the truth that the essence of God lives in all of us? And what about materialism itself? The great illusion of fulfilment which has led so many people away from simple Oneness. Are these not the myths you are talking about?

      You say you can’t bring yourself to leave without telling the truth. How much have you really devoted yourself to truth in your own life?
      – Have you made an in-depth logical analysis of the body of teachings given by the Cosmic Masters and their message to humanity?
      – Have you developed your own intuitive understanding so that you can tell what is true from what is false teaching?
      – Do you have any real experience that tells you these teachings are false, as opposed to what you have read or what you have been told?
      – How much spiritual healing do you give to others, Theo? Wasn’t Jesus one of the greatest exponents of healing?
      – What have you given up in your life to help others who are strangers to you? Didn’t Jesus ask his Disciples to do this? How much time do you devote to helping others without any thought of reward for yourself? Isn’t that the essence of Christian teaching?
      – How much time have you devoted to spiritual practices that will help you to become a better healer, and ultimately to realize your Oneness with God? Didn’t Jesus raise Kundalini while he fasted in the Judaean desert, giving him great powers, and ultimately leading to his resurrection and Ascension?

      I feel that before you make such judgments, you should first become the best Christian that you can, and in doing so I think you will see the essence of your teachings in the teachings of the Cosmic Masters too.
