Planet Earth is at present the arena for great change, hopefully for the better. This expected change is due to the planet having entered the new age, the Age of Aquarius, and the new energies of synthesis, peace and equilibrium coming into the world. The Masters of Wisdom have for a long time (from a human perspective) prepared humanity and the disciples in the world for this change and for the changes disciples must make in order to adjust to the new age energies and to increase spiritual tension. In this way, they help bring about the circumstances in which the World Teacher, Maitreya, and the Masters of Wisdom can work openly in the physical world. This is a crucial time for our planet– a transition period to world justice, co-operation and peace.
This series of articles presents one view of a disciple’s responsibility in a time of great change and upheaval. This article describes the present world situation and the Masters’ analysis and guidance when in crisis. … The focus will also be on the disciple’s responsibility for upholding spiritual tension, their challenges and important goals for change in order to express the energies of Aquarius. In this way the disciple makes herself/himself of service to Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom for their open mission on our planet.
The present world situation — the Masters’ advice for times of crisis
Surely 2020 provided humanity with enough food for thought to bring about radical change? The critical situation in the world on all fronts (wars, economic and social injustice, terrorism, famine and resulting deaths; the refugee crisis with millions of people marginalised, abused and ignored; pollution resulting in grave climate change, and now the Covid-19 pandemic causing many deaths and a potential stock market and economic crash) is a situation which, it is hoped, will be a turning point for humanity and the planet.
The following quotation from the Master Djwhal Khul (the Master DK) shows His advice to disciples when in crisis: “It is necessary for working disciples … to appreciate the immediate emergency. The crisis must be viewed in terms of opportunity and not in terms of cataclysm or catastrophe. The objective is that the soul may assume an increasing control over the form aspect and manifest the nature of the soul, which is love and the will-to-good. …” (Alice A. Bailey: Discipleship in the New Age, Volume One)
