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.
As always, articles written by BC’s Master capture the essence of a situation. This article is no exception. He poses the question which encapsulates the division which has split the world: some bend all efforts to maintain the so-called status quo and uphold the old ways while others see and experience the effects of division and greed. “Will the old ways, the old time, return? Do we really want them to return with the wealth of the rich doubling daily and the poor picking up the coppers they let fall?”
Two factors will contribute to the evolution of the new: the awakening of the people to their rights and their power, and the inevitability of the turning of the Cosmic wheel bringing modern ‘Rome’ and its excesses to an end – clearing the way for the creation of a just world.

While many people continue to believe that the present banking and stock exchange systems are necessary and unalterable, more and more are coming to the conclusion that they have passed their usefulness and must soon be replaced. Too many are suffering from the effects of unfettered greed, and yearn for greater justice and fairness in order to survive what is so glibly called ‘the current economic climate’. Before the economic collapse of 2008, at least in the developed world, there was plenty of money. People had work and houses to live in; new millionaires were born every day. Elsewhere, of course, millions still starved and millions more went hungry, but for some there was plenty of money and life felt good.
Where has all the money gone? What has happened to it? Now, no one has work and the money has disappeared – into the banks and disappeared. And the millionaires are now billionaires. It is all very puzzling. A conjuring, a confidence trick, you would think, has been played on half the world.
Will the old ways, the old time, return? Do we really want them to return with the wealth of the rich doubling daily and the poor picking up the coppers they let fall?
The people everywhere are sensing a change and are lending their voices to its call. They are sensing, too, their power to act, and many die to prove it. They sense that the old ways are almost over and have spent their force. They feel that there are other, better ways to live, and look forward to tomorrow. Verily, the old ways are dying and hold back the race. The wheel turns and mighty Rome is falling once again. Maitreya’s fire is lit in the hearts of countless millions and they respond, eager to build a new world where justice and harmony rule. Maitreya’s promise is that this new world is on its way.
