From the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme’s Master provided articles to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances.

From the earliest times, mankind has feared the natural disturbances of our planetary home. Cataclysms of unimaginable ferocity have destroyed huge areas of the Earth’s surface over and over again. This fact is hard for many to accept and raises, always, grave doubts in the minds of many religious people about the veracity of God’s love for humanity. How can we believe in a loving God who allows thousands of people to be killed in earthquakes, tsunamis and the rest? Were humanity to understand their own involvement in such planetary destruction, they could play a significant role in preventing its occurrence.
The Earth’s crust, as it has evolved over the ages, is not single and evenly spread around the world. As is well known, it takes the form of various plates at different depths, which overlap and are in relatively constant movement. Countries and cities which lie on or near the plate edge, or fault-lines, are consequently subjected to earthquakes and, if near oceanic regions, tsunamis. It is not a question of God’s love failing humanity but of seismic pressure which must be released. What, we may ask, causes seismic pressure to grow to such a destructive extent?
Elemental Devas (or Angelic forces) oversee the mechanism by which these colossal energies act or are modified. The Earth is a living Entity and responds to the impact of these forces in various ways. One major source of impact comes directly from humanity. As humanity, in its usual competitive way, creates tension through wars, and political and economic crises – that is when we are out of equilibrium – so too do the Devic lives go out of equilibrium. The inevitable result is earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. We are responsible.
How then to end this cycle of destruction? Humanity has the means but so far lacks the will to change. We must see ourselves as One, each man and woman a reflection of the Divine, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of the One Father. We must banish war for ever from this Earth; we must share the resources of this planet which belong to all. We must learn to live in harmony with the planet itself to know a future of harmony with each other.
Maitreya has come to show men the way, and to galvanize man’s actions. Across the globe, men are finding their voice and calling for justice and freedom. Many have died to claim their right, God given, to freedom and justice. His call is for all men and women everywhere to see themselves as He sees them, as Divine, Sons and Daughters of Divinity Itself.
Q. What do you think about carbon capture and storage technology – to capture carbon dioxide and store it underground for long periods? (Share International, Jan/Feb 2009)
A. The major problem in all these ideas is the need to get rid of the waste. The use of nuclear energy itself is not seen as a problem. The nuclear scientists do see a problem in the disposing of the waste produced in using nuclear energy – it is even dumped in the oceans, in steel and concrete canisters. It profoundly changes the ocean’s ecology. It is bad enough at the present time and but for the work of the Space Brothers it would be infinitely worse.
The climate is being changed; the life of fish of all kinds is being modified, all due to the storage of nuclear radiation. All the waste they have is what they call ‘small-scale nuclear radiation’. Well, it has nothing to do with the scale. If you put the waste in the sea, it is contaminated from the very beginning and they only have instruments that are able to read the radiation up to a certain point. Above that, they do not have the technology to measure it. So they assume that it is not relevant. But that is the most dangerous level of radiation, and they know nothing about it.
Carbon storage has a similar problem. They have to store it somewhere – somewhere it will do no harm. Well, where does it do no harm? Not in my backyard, I say. And everybody else says not in my backyard. And nobody wants stored waste, either nuclear or carbon, in their own backyard. So, where else? The Russians might say: “Well, in China.” The Chinese say: “Oh, no. In Tibet.” And the Tibetans say: “No, no. In America.” The Americans say: “No we are not having it here. Have it in Venezuela.” Each chooses its least favourite country to recommend storing it – and that’s the problem. There is nowhere that it is safe. Where do you put carbon stored in canisters deep underground for thousands of years where it will do no harm? They do not know the harm it will do and they do not know when it will be broken into, broken open by the forces of the Earth itself in an earthquake, say, and released again.
It is tackling a problem always from the wrong end. We do not look for the cause and tackle that cause. What is causing this problem? What is causing nuclear radiation? What is causing global warming? If global warming is partly caused by the destruction of trees, then we have to stop cutting down our trees, especially the ancient primal forests of the world whose trees are great storers of carbon dioxide and pour oxygen into our atmosphere in return. Our atmosphere is becoming deoxidized and the carbon dioxide has nowhere to go, and so it creates global warming. But if we were not so profligate in our use of wood, we would cut out a great source of global warming.
We do not look for the cause because we do not like causes. Causes are to do with laws – cause and effect – and we do not like it. Somehow the modern mechanical mind never looks for the cause because it does not want to change its technology. We may say we cannot do without wood. But what the rich countries do is preserve their own hardwood and buy what they need from poorer countries, like Brazil, countries in Africa and elsewhere. These countries are then forced to cut down, or allow to be cut down, their ancient forests, which are absolutely essential to human life.
So if we want to know what to do about anything we look for the cause. And if we find it, we seek to remedy the cause….
