Article by Benjamin Creme’s Master

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.

The Teachers and the taught

by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme

Many are the times, throughout his long history, when man has lost his way; but never, until now, has he strayed so far from his destined path. Never, before, has he been in such need of succour, and never, until now, has that help been so readily available. For long ages, the Law has restricted the measure of aid which might be given; man’s free will is sacrosanct and may not be infringed. Today, for the first time in countless centuries, more aid can be freely given than ever before. Today, at his moment of greatest need and despair, the bountiful hands of his Elder Brothers can open, and provide the succour he longs for.

All that is required is the request from man himself. All that is needed is the readiness to accept the advice and wisdom of the Brotherhood, and to change direction.

Many at this time of crisis have lost hope and wait fearfully for the end of all. They know nothing of the hope which fills their future and languish in the midst of change. Many more are impatient with the present and seek change at any cost. They feel the future beckoning with they know not what, and champ at the bit in their eagerness to experience the new. All are subject to the influence of the tensions and stress which characterize this time of change, and, in the light of their disposition, react accordingly.

Into this complex situation the Masters make Their approach. They must so act that man’s free will is not transgressed, yet seek to help in every way the Law allows. Fine will be the judgement needed in many circumstances and cases until a modus-operandi is evolved acceptable to all.

We, your Elder Brothers, counsel the democratic process, with full participation, as that which brings freedom and justice to each one. Nevertheless, there will be many times when Our age-long experience and vantage point in evolution will be to man’s advantage and betterment to accept.

Thus shall we work together, the Teachers and the taught, in harmony and trust; and thus will man learn the ways of the past, of his forefathers, and so bring his aspiration into line with his preordained purpose.

Thus will it be, and thus will man begin to realize the essentials of life, and begin to discard the multitude of useless attachments which today distort his vision, create his unhappiness and threaten his very existence.

Soon, Maitreya, the Master of the Masters, will begin His open mission. Soon, men will be able to hear His teachings and assess them for themselves. Many will find in them the Truth so simply evident that they will quickly join His band of warriors and share His burden. May all who read these words be among them.

The curse of commercialization

by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme

If men are to save this planet from the results of global warming they must do infinitely more than is planned to limit carbon emissions and in a shorter period of time than is generally accepted as necessary. Men have been slow to recognize the dangers, and even now many refuse to take the problems seriously. Such attitudes, there is no doubt, put in jeopardy the future of planet Earth. At most, men have ten to fifteen* years in which to establish a balance before irreparable damage is done.

To achieve this goal, men must change dramatically the present way of life, and embrace simpler forms of living and working. Gone are the days in which men raped and ravaged the planet at will, without a thought for the generations still to come, neither seeing nor caring ought for the environment which has gradually and inevitably decayed.

Each year, and for many years, huge areas of ancient primal forest are cleared of life-giving trees for purely commercial benefits. Commercialization indeed bodes ill for humanity as it tightens its grip on the throats of men. Commercialization, says Maitreya, is more dangerous to men than the atomic bomb, and is showing its destructive power in the economic chaos which rules in the world today. How long will it take governments and their peoples to see this? How long till commercialization squeezes the lifeblood out of humanity, and itself withers and dies?

More and more, the truth of these words is borne in on the minds of millions who now, suddenly, are jobless and homeless and in despair.

This has produced a situation in which Maitreya can step forward into public work without infringing humanity’s free will. Patiently has Maitreya waited many years for this time, sure in the knowledge that the events now taking place would, indeed, transpire. Commercialization has bared its claws and shown its power to harm. The complacency of millions is turning into hatred and distrust of commercialization and the old order of things. Men everywhere are at last ready for a new interpretation of the meaning and purpose of life, for sharing, justice and peace; for right relationship, brotherhood and greater happiness. They are ready, at last, for Maitreya’s call.

Of course, not all men have undergone this change. There are many who imagine they can ‘sit out’ this ‘recession’ and rebuild their fortunes as before. The very rich and clever ones have lost nothing. The gap between themselves and others has simply widened in their favour. They fail to understand that this time is like none other. We have reached the end of the old order. Cosmic forces dictate the changes that must and will take place, otherwise life would flourish no more on planet Earth.

Those who are ready will quickly respond to Maitreya’s Teaching as He puts into simple and eloquent words their heartfelt needs. Others will take longer to forgo that to which they have become accustomed, and for a time disagree. In time, millions around the world will see the need and the logic of the changes which alone will save the planet and its people. (Share International, 17 April 2009)
