It will change everything! The presence in our midst of a figure of the stature of the World Teacher, and of the Masters of Wisdom, will transform all aspects of life on our planet. Nothing will remain the same — neither our individual lives, our collective life nor our relationships with all other forms of life on our planet. Purpose, meaning, oneness, brotherhood, justice, beauty, hope and joy will become not only possible, but increasingly our daily experience, the more we discover our true nature as divine beings.
This is a pivotal moment
This is a pivotal moment as an ancient promise is kept by the ‘returning’ Teacher — to be with humanity, to guide, help and advise. This message means that having a sense of hope for the future has been right all along. This is the time that the people everywhere have all longed for, whether it was for hope, for peace or harmony, a better life for millions, or the end to suffering — however this yearning for something better has been expressed. Now is the time humanity will be inspired and galvanized to make those changes for the benefit of all.
Lives sanctified by meaning
Those who can respond will find themselves liberated, able to step out of merely existing to living lives ‘sanctified by meaning’. More people today experience or believe in the god within — god immanent. Increasingly we know ourselves to be divine in essence and potential. With the living example of Maitreya and the Masters at the centre of global society, those goals will be seen as achievable — no longer a fairy tale.
You will know yourself to be a soul
You will know yourself to be a soul in incarnation, with your own unique goals. We will come into a new understanding of our own nature and the meaning and purpose of our lives. The evolution of consciousness will become the aim of education, and the fact of reincarnation will explain much that now baffles us about the purpose and meaning of life.
You will be inspired
Inspired by a newfound sense of empowerment, we will turn our attention to restoring the health of our planet and establishing social justice for all. We will gladly work to ensure basic universal rights for all — enough food, adequate housing, healthcare and education. The outer systems and structures will reflect our interdependence. Simplicity and the equitable redistribution of the world’s resources will ensure trust and make peace possible. Vistas of unimagined experience and learning will take hold of our imaginations and new inventions, technologies and ways of living will create the wherewithal for a dignified creative life for all.
These transformations will powerfully affect every human being — and bring you closer to your true self than you thought possible.
Clearly, many hands will be needed in the creation of the new society. Many are the tasks to be performed. Many are the adjustments which must be made. All who wish to serve will hear the call to service ringing in their hearts and from the heart will they respond. The united voice of the people of all lands calling for justice and sharing will set up an invocation which nothing can resist. Thus will the world be transformed. Thus, gradually, will the new forms be created, the new relationships forged, a new and happier era dawn for humanity under the guidance of the Christ and the Masters.
