Question: Why do we come to Earth to go through the incarnation process?
Maitreya: Because it is the only place where the self resides. The self was originally the survivor instinct in humanity. In our world there is no survivor instinct, that is why Earth plane was chosen as a place to come back to learn the lesson of self.
Question: Are there other places of learning in the Universe?
Maitreya: Yes there are, but some are on planets that are many many light years away. They have their places of learning. Where as in our world, you come back to Earth plane, in those other planetary areas, you actually live like in our world, you actually go to a place for the learning.
