Converting Others to Your Beliefs
Each person is entitled to their own truth. As such, each individual makes the choice as to what they wish to believe.
Moderator: so Maitreya, do I need to convert my friends and family to my metaphysical beliefs?
Maitreya: No, no, no. You cannot tell anybody what to do; you cannot persuade anybody to do anything. They have to find the truth, their truth themselves. That is why on the airplane there is so many different sects of people: Jews, Christians, Bahais, Catholics, so many different but they all lead to the same God. Much of your belief system in religion and in your faith comes from your past lives. So it has a lot to do with that, but you cannot, I’m sorry I interrupted you, but it is something that you need to be aware of. You cannot persuade or force anyone to do what you do.
Moderator: So the only way really to let them evolve is to let them figure it out for themselves.
Maitreya: Exactly, and if they choose not to want to do what you do that is their choice. Sometimes it may be what it’s meant to be anyway for it is their learnings. It is their lessons to be different to you.
Moderator: Well thank you very much Maitreya.
Maitreya: Thank you very much.
