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. Indeed, many of these articles seem more relevant now than when they were first published.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
When men eventually take stock of their present situation they must surely admit that all is not well for humanity. Political, economic, social, environmental conditions are filled with problems which test the resources of all the countries to the limit. Even those countries which seem to be economically dominant at the present time have problems which deny them the ease their wealth implies. What is preventing the nations from achieving a degree of balance and well-being? Why do even old, rich and experienced nations plunge suddenly into chaos and strife? Why the pain and struggle for so many; what prevents a greater sense, and expression of unity?
The answers to these questions are many and varied, but the single inclusive factor is the time, the moment in this Earth’s history, in which they are being asked.
This time is like none other in the history of the world. The changes taking place are momentous, beyond human comprehension, and will alter life, as we now know it, profoundly and for ever.
On every plane these changes are taking place, some slowly, even in the very fabric of the Earth’s crust; others in a growing momentum which challenges men’s capacity for correct response.
Useless, in this context, are the tired ideas of backward-looking politicians, steeped in the glamours of position and power. Today, it is the people who are ahead of their leaders, and are voicing aloud their understanding and needs. In country after country, the voice of the people is becoming more focused and distinct. Millions are now educated and sure of their needs: peace, work and hope for their future. A growing sense of unity, too, is beginning to inform their expectations and demands. They know they are not alone in the world but have millions of brothers and sisters everywhere, with the same problems and needs. In this way, even if unaware of His presence and teachings, they are responding to Maitreya’s energy and influence, and building the framework of the future.
