by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
When men realize the depths to which they have fallen they will take stock of themselves and begin the journey back to sanity and safety. This will take time, of course, for the fall from Grace into the present corruption and chaos has a long history. For thousands of years, man has made a steady decline from the spiritual base which once ordered his life. He has forgotten his origin and purpose as the Dark Age clouded his memory and waylaid his heart. Lost in the twin glamours of Matter and Time man is only now awakening from his long dream and illusion.
Needless to say, individual men have risen above the herd and fought their way through the fogs of unknowing into a measure of Light. They are the bright stars who have kept faith with their soul’s knowledge and purpose and so act as a beacon for the rest. Through these exceptional men and women, the truth of man’s eternal journey in ever-increasing awareness has been kept alive and fostered in the darkest days.
Now, as we enter the Aquarian Dispensation, a new chapter opens for mankind, and a new beginning is vouchsafed the race of men.
For millennia, mankind has struggled in the dark, unmindful of the group of Elder Brothers Who watch their halting progress and see them safely through the problems and dangers of their own making.
Now, at last, the Brothers may step forward into the light and show Themselves to men.
Now, at last, may They teach openly and guide.
As Brothers, the Masters bring a new understanding of the true relation that exists among men.
As Masters, the Brothers will show men the wisdom and knowledge which one day will be theirs, and so quicken the aspiration of men.
As Friends and Guides They will hold before men a mirror of what they can become and so speed the journey for the race.
They come to teach and to guide and to offer Their succour to all.
Their Great Leader, Maitreya, stands poised to engage on a journey like none other, one which will bring Him openly, in the full light of day, closer to the hearts and minds of men.
His teaching will inspire men to transform and to rebuild their lives for the better, and to shape the future more in the likeness of the Plan.
Thus will mankind rise again, nearer to the high point of the distant past from which it has descended.
Naught there is that can prevent that rise but the will of man itself.
Thus do men stand at the testing time — as never before in their long history — but the vanguard of the Masters is among them and their future is assured.
Maitreya, Himself, stands in the wings, ready to emerge and to face the ignorance of the time. He has gathered around Him helpers from all the continents, men and women of every race and creed. Together they are ready to do battle with ignorance and greed, selfishness and cruelty, and are certain of victory.
