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 was written in 2002 and sets the tone for this issue of the magazine and, more importantly, indicates the possibilities for humanity as the new decade begins.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
When men take stock of the world situation they see only the difficulties and traumas, the dangers and crises, and, paralysed by fear, do little to overcome the inertia their despair engenders. Thus it is that men miss the progress of their best efforts and seldom understand the sequence of events. They understand little of the laws which underlie all happenings, and cannot, therefore, control their outcome. Were they to live according to these unseen laws, their lives would develop in harmony and order.
Despite such ignorance and fear, men today have reached a point of new sensitivity to the forces which drive them ever forward on their path. They sense, albeit fleetingly, that there is much that they do not understand, much less control, but that slowly they can begin to visualize a greater meaning and purpose, a greater unity and beauty, in and around them.
As We, the Watchers, from Our vantage point, consider man’s efforts to control his changing world, We welcome the signs of greater sensitivity to the higher forces impinging on men’s lives. We await, gladly, an intensification of this response and a more beneficial use of these forces.
True it is that We see, also, an escalation of hatred and cruelty, brutality and war, but these, the reactions of fear, are nearing their end and will subside.
This, a period of transition, is indeed a difficult time. Many men are reaching for the future, longing for change and fresh answers to the problems. Others hold grimly to the old ways and seek to stem the onslaught of the new. We watch and wait, confident that men will find the way.
Maitreya, the Master of the Masters, is poised to begin His emergence, to work openly before men. This cannot mean that His work behind the scenes will cease entirely. Much that He does even now supports the efforts of some who otherwise would fail. His help and guidance directs the hand of more than one wise leader and protects them from harm.
Those who would assault the world to prove their strength attack Maitreya too. Behind all people of goodwill stand Maitreya and His Group; They form a shield on which all arrows beat in vain. Come quickly to His side when He emerges. Rally to His Banner of Peace, Justice and Freedom and aid Him in His mighty work. A new day in the lives of men is dawning, a day unlike aught known before.
