News release no. 70, September 2004

Over many years Share International magazine has published regular articles by a Master of Wisdom. Far from being mystical or remote, the Master often addresses the immediate problems facing humanity. His latest article ‘A call for sanity’ addresses the challenge facing the American people (and the world) as the day of the US Presidential election approaches. He is at pains to clarify the choices open to them and to inspire a result which, surely, all sane people would hope for.

A call for sanity

The citizens of the United States of America are approaching a time of critical decision. On their decision, in November, this year, may depend the future happiness of many millions, not alone American, but of many other countries. One would have thought that this decision would not be difficult to make, that the choice was surely obvious to all who treasure peace and right relationship.
However, it appears that there are those who think otherwise, who reserve for themselves the right to invade other countries on the pretext that they might be plotting harm for them. Such pre-emptive action, one would have assumed, was long ago abandoned by modern, civilized states, and relegated to man’s illegal past.
Not so, sadly, we are assured. The present American administration, far from showing remorse for their unjust and cruel invasion of Iraq, proudly assert, if re-elected, their firm resolve to continue their programme of pillage in their ‘war on terror’.

A phantom
To fight a ‘war on terror’ is to fight a phantom, a useless, costly and dangerous exercise. Terror is the Hydra, a many-headed monster: each head severed, as Hercules discovered, is replaced by two. This US administration, in its arrogance and ignorance, has fallen blindly into the trap. Those who suffer are the American people, their victims, and the world as a whole.
There is but one way to deal with terror, to end, forever, this canker in our midst: to seek its cause.
There are, of course, several causes of terrorism, but above all in importance is the unbalanced distribution of the world’s resources. This creates the dangerous gulf between the nations which drives men to use terror to realize their dreams. They are desperate men, who feel they have nothing to lose. There is an immense, untapped army of such desperate people ready to die, if necessary, for the justice they long for which, rightly, they see as theirs.
No ‘war on terror’ can defeat such an army. No arrogant posturing can drive them away from the bastions of the Western world.
No nation, however strong, can by itself defeat terrorism. It is born of the injustice which disfigures this world.

Only when men learn to share will we see the end of terrorism. Only through sharing can the goal of justice and freedom be realized. Our appeal to you, citizens of the great and blessed United States of America, is to think carefully, and from the heart, as is your wont, when you deliver your vote. Cast your vote for peace, justice and the rule of Law.

Share International — background information

For 30 years artist, author, and lecturer Benjamin Creme has been preparing the way for the biggest event in history — the emergence of Maitreya the World Teacher and His group. Millions of people around the world have heard his information and wait expectantly for this momentous event.
Since 19 July 1977 Maitreya has been living in the Asian community of London, gradually emerging before the public. Long awaited by all faiths under different names, Maitreya is the World Teacher for all people, religious or not.
Maitreya’s ‘roving ambassador’ Benjamin Creme travels the world spreading his message of hope and creating a climate of expectancy for Maitreya’s emergence. Trained and supervised over many years by his own Master, with whom he is in constant telepathic contact, Benjamin Creme has access to up-to-date information on Maitreya’s emergence, giving him the total conviction needed to present this story to a sceptical world.
As a modern man concerned with today’s problems, Maitreya works behind the scenes of our changing world. The outpouring of His extraordinary energy has been the stimulus for dramatic developments on many fronts: the ending of the cold war; the break-up of the Soviet Union; the unification of Germany; the ending of apartheid in South Africa; the growing power of the people’s voice, leading to demands for freedom and justice; and the worldwide focus on preserving the environment.
Outwardly Maitreya has met with influential leaders from all fields, informing them of His solutions to our pressing problems. His message can be summarized as: “Share and save the world.” He has not come to found a new religion but as an educator in the broadest sense. He will seek to inspire humanity to see itself as one family, and to create a civilization based on sharing, economic and social justice, and global co-operation.
For those who seek signs of His coming, Maitreya has manifested miracles worldwide, touching the hearts of millions and preparing them for His imminent appearance.
With Maitreya and His group working openly in the world, offering Their guidance and teachings, humanity is assured not only of survival but of the creation of a brilliant new civilization.
According to Benjamin Creme, we do not have long to wait to see Him. Soon, Maitreya will be interviewed on major US television and His open emergence will begin.
Benjamin Creme regularly lectures worldwide, and appears on television and radio — in the USA alone he has been interviewed on more than 300 radio and television shows. He is author of ten books — translated into 11 languages — and is editor of Share International magazine which circulates in 70 countries. He receives no payment for any of this work. Benjamin Creme offers a positive view of the future — a message of hope for the world.
