Every century, and every twenty-five years of the century, We, the
Masters of Wisdom, gather together to assess the success or otherwise of the
many projects and plans which We have previously set in motion. In this way
We know how well certain plans are faring and, if not, can make the
necessary adjustments and changes before harm is done.
This may seem to some a slow and ponderous rhythm but Our long experience
tells Us that evolution proceeds slowly and humanity takes long to build in,
and stabilize, the necessary advances. Advance, however, is sure if the Plan
is carefully followed and We have much faith in Our methods.
As We look back on the twentieth century We see an astonishing picture.
Truly it was one of titanic struggle and achievement, a veritable
battleground for warring forces so opposed and committed. It saw humanity at
last, battleweary but triumphant, come of age. From Our perspective, last
century saw humanity reach adulthood, ready to take decisions and to think
its own way forward. The trials and tribulations were many and daunting,
calling out from men the best that was in them, preparing them for the
decisions which lie immediately ahead.
The two world wars of the past century saw humanity divide itself in
two: those who, for all their faults, stood on the side of Light, for
freedom and justice for all and the democratic ideal; and those who
worshipped power for its own sake, who stood on the dark side of life
and sought to enslave the minds and hearts of those weaker than
themselves. The triumph of the Forces of Light ensures that men know
better the reality in which they live, and the nature of the materialism
against which they fought so bitterly and at such cost. Thus was forged
a sense of the grandeur of human life and also of its sacredness and
It is this achievement which has made possible the re-entry into the
world of the Christ and His group of Masters. The events of the
twentieth century have been momentous. They constitute the major trials
of the World Disciple and shown him ready, when led by Us, to battle
against and conquer tyranny, to right the wrongs of the past and to
grasp the fact of Brotherhood in all its beauty.
Some, surveying the world and the actions of small but ambitious men,
doubt that this is possible. They see only the outer, transient events
and not the changes wrought on men under the laws of evolution. Our
hopes for men are high. This is said not lightly for We know that much
needs still to be done to ensure the future for men and planet. Our view
of men is based on long association with the trials and tests of life
which have brought men to readiness to inherit their destiny.
