From the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme’s Master provided articles to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances.

Preparatory to every shift in human consciousness there is a pause, a moment of stillness, in which the achievements of the past are reappraised and, if found wanting, discarded. Thus it is today as man assesses what is relevant and needful to preserve for future use, and what is dispensable in the light of his growing awareness and insight. Left to himself, this period for man would be long indeed. Many are the experiments which he would require to make, and many are the possibilities of error which could occur ere the right path was found and the right steps taken.
From now on, man can avail himself, if he so chooses, of the help and experience of Us, his Elder Brothers, Who stand ready to aid and inspire when called upon to do so.
Thus is this a time without precedent, when the Helpers are at hand in every situation, careful to maintain man’s divine free will, but eagerly willing to give of Their age-long wisdom and hard-fought-for experience and knowledge.
Much that today seems important will pass away, to be replaced by simpler and more natural ways of living and relationship. Gone, you may be sure, will be the blasphemy of millions dying needlessly of want in the midst of overflowing plenty. Gone, too, will be the intolerance which so disfigures the human spirit today. Gone, for ever, the urge to dominate, subdue and exploit the resources and territory of smaller and weaker nations. In their place will grow a new realism, an understanding of the interconnectedness of all men and of their mutual rights and obligations. Men and nations will seek to live by the rule of law and the requirements of peace and security for all men.
Soon, the beginning of such a process will make its appearance. Already, the men whose eyes are attuned to the future are making known their insights and gaining attention. More and more, many will turn to them for assurance and guidance, and in this way the new thought will take root. Gradually, a transformation will take place in human thinking and, inevitably, the old will give way to a new and saner approach to the problems of life.
Thus, in a fiery cauldron, the shape of the future is being fashioned now. The outlines, as yet, are dim and indistinct, yet sufficiently clear, to those whose eyes are keen, to give assurance and hope that man is awakening to his true identity and purpose, and, despite the vicissitudes of the time, well set on his forward path.
