Since the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme’s Master has provided articles to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme, January 1993
There comes a time in the life of every nation when a period of soul-searching must take place; when the ideals enshrined in its constitution, written or not, must be looked at again in the light of actual achievement, and a reassessment of that achievement made. When this is done with honesty and candour, a new and sobering realism will replace the present self-congratulation in which the leaders of many nations indulge, hoping thereby to maintain their faltering grip on the lives of their peoples. Their time is all but over.
Events shortly to occur will redistribute the power of governments and emancipate the people. The sham democracy of today will give way to true participation, and open a new chapter in man’s long quest for justice and freedom.
Even as these words are being written a plan is being set in motion which will speed this process and bring joy to the pain-wracked hearts of millions. Patiently they wait, the unexpectant poor: herded like cattle in the parched and pitiless desert; homeless and workless in the proud cities of the world; farming barren rock in the high plateaux. They await deliverance which now knocks upon the door.
Soon they will see their deliverer; many have already done so and live but to see His face again. In the battlefields which disgrace this time, He appears with equal Grace to all. Soon, the many miracles He has wrought will endear Him to the hearts of men and women everywhere. The healing waters will be discovered, one by one, and a great cleansing of men’s temples will begin.
History teaches that nothing happens twice in the exact same way. Time and evolution ensure renewal of events. Those who await a saviour in the manner of the past will wait in vain. New times demand new methods and new problems new solutions.
Thus it is that Maitreya addresses Himself to the present situation, to the problems which beset all men: hunger and strife; planetary equilibrium; sharing and justice; the ways of peace and war. That He comes to aid men is not in doubt, but He comes, primarily, to teach. Heed, then, His teachings, for they contain the essence of life, and by their guidance and inspiration can you reach the stars.
When you are asked, “What will the future bring?” tell them this: a bright star has forsaken its rightful place in the firmament and has chosen to walk among men, bringing gifts as yet unseen on Earth. By name Maitreya, this Blessed One will teach men the ways of what they can become. He will show them the secret entrance to the heart of God and lead them therein. He will walk with men and angels and relate these two. By example and teaching He will show the way to self-salvation. He will regenerate and rejuvenate the world. Listen for His knock.
