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. This article first appeared in the July/August 1996 issue of Share International and now, more than ever, we are called on to make our choice for a safer, saner world for all. Since we cannot know all that is involved in Maitreya’s judgement about His fuller Emergence we would be wise to trust His skill in action.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
It is near the time for mankind’s great decision. Expectant, the Lords Themselves await that decisive moment. Few there are, indeed, among the multitudes who know the importance of this time, the choice for man: to plunge headlong, unheeding, to disaster; or to reorder, and sanctify with justice and freedom, the life for all men.
It is, of course, a perennial choice, focused now as never before. Never before has so much depended on the rightness of man’s decision, for today, in man’s hands, lies a weapon of uncontrollable power to destroy. Great, therefore, is the need for calm and careful thought.
To enable men to understand the consequences of their actions, Maitreya stands ready to enter the public sphere. He will add His persuasive wisdom to the call for sanity and peace. He will inspire and teach. In growing numbers, men will emulate His actions and manner, and, in time, the world will follow His wise counsel and restore to men their birthright of peace. Thus will it be. Thus will Maitreya fulfil His promise and His duty to mankind.
With impatience do many await this time, knowing little of the many factors, cosmic and other, which must be balanced by Maitreya to fulfil the law. Nothing may be done which infringes the free will of men; naught but the Law, and an understanding of the times, can influence the judgement of Maitreya on the moment of His public appearance. Of one thing you may be assured: not one moment’s delay will be countenanced by Maitreya which would, otherwise, allow His open mission of service to begin. He alone is the arbiter of that moment. Await, and trust, His judgement.
That judgement rests on knowledge unknown to men. A cosmic grasp alone permits its correct assessment. Even so, Maitreya must make weighty decisions on slender – and changing – data. A fine line, indeed, divides the necessary and the possible.
Trust then the skill in action of the Lord of Love. Chafe not at the seeming delay of His appearance – in the all-embracing Now no such delay exists.
Ere long, the Son of Man will assume His rightful place as the Teacher of mankind. Gladly and willingly, the majority of men will follow His advice and take to heart His teachings. Step by grateful step, will they set in place the structures of the future, and, in gathering momentum, the old mistakes will die away, forgiven and forgotten. Thus will it be. Thus will the Great Lord and leader of men fulfil His destiny, and thus will mankind know true joy.
