A question of priorities
by the Master – ,
through Benjamin Creme
Divisions between nations require bridging. Maitreya will present guidelines and
priorities needed to ensure a future for mankind.
Throughout the world today there is a growing sense that great changes are necessary
if humanity is to survive. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the political and economic fields. From time to
time, and with increasing frequency, world leaders meet to discuss, and hopefully to solve, some of the more
pressing problems which beset mankind. This they do under the watching eyes of millions and in response to the
growing weight of public opinion. They dare not fail, for they know that the peoples of the world will hold them to
account. The divisions between the nations yawn wide, yet somehow, men know, they must be bridged. The tensions of
the present can be supported for little longer. They drain the will and nerve of all but the strongest men.
Into this arena must come the Christ. His will be the task to show the way through the
quicksand, to lead men safely to established peace and justice. A formidable task but one for which He is well
prepared. He will answer the need of men for leadership and guidance. He will reinstate as normal and right a
spiritual connotation to life. He will reaffirm men's worth as potential gods and show them the way to demonstrate
that potential. A mighty task but not beyond His strength. He will lay down certain guidelines, affirm certain
priorities. Beyond all others, the task most pressing is the elimination of hunger. Millions starve today while the
food that could ensure them life lies rotting mountain high. The world's poor groan daily under the burden of their
lot. He will seek to show afresh that men are One, together in life to fulfil the plan of God.
priority is the establishment of peace; little hope remains for man if peace is not secured. The way to peace, he
will show, the only way, has the signpost: Justice, written large. Men must learn to share, without which justice is
a far-off dream.
The third priority concerns the maintenance of human freedom. Countless numbers now suffer
indignities and torture in the prisons of the world, their only crime the crime of independent thought. The Christ
will emphasize the need for human liberty without which man is haltered and stunted on his way to God.
Once secured, these three primary tasks will set men firmly on the road to perfection.
Without their achievement man would have little hope to survive. More and more, men begin to see this and seek to
find a way to just and lasting peace. Without the acceptance of sharing, they will find, all efforts will be futile,
for sharing alone is the key to the future for man. When men share they will know peace.
The Master – is a senior member of the Hierarchy of the Masters of
Wisdom; His name, well-known in esoteric circles, is not yet being revealed
for various reasons. Benjamin Creme is in constant telepathic contact with
this Master Who dictates His articles to him.
