From the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme’s Master provided an article every month for nearly 35 years. These were intended to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances.
Whenever men make a determined step into right relationship, there are always others who make an equally determined step into confrontation. Multitudes work, and even die, for greater freedom and justice; while other forces threaten the peace in cynical attempts to consolidate their diminishing power. Meanwhile, humanity at large watches and trembles, witnessing with fear a renewal of ancient hatred thought to be discarded and overcome.
We, your Elder Brothers, too, watch carefully this dangerous ploy, but fear not. Common sense, We know, will force the acceptance of at least a precarious peace, with gains and losses balanced, more or less.
From now on this scenario will be repeated across the world, where the ‘great powers’ attempt to maintain or to even increase their power, knowing, however, that they must do so carefully without damaging the status quo.
For how long can the nations play this useless game? The only sensible course is to work together for peace and prosperity for all. Only in this way will they ready their peoples for the joy of peace, the prosperity of justice, and the bliss of sharing.

These articles are by a senior member of the Hierarchy of Masters of Wisdom. His name, well-known in esoteric circles, is not yet being revealed. Benjamin Creme, a principal spokesman about the emergence of Maitreya, was in constant telepathic contact with this Master who dictated his articles to him.
Share International has a reserve of unpublished letters which were confirmed by Benjamin Creme and his Master to be genuine encounters with Masters, or a ‘spokesperson’. Other letters presented here are new, and while we cannot confirm or indicate whether a Master is involved, we present these letters for your consideration.
On the weekend of 11 March 2023, I went to work at the Benjamin Creme Museum in Los Angeles, California. On Saturday, I visited a good friend and we talked a lot about spiritual matters and the state of the world and humanity. The next morning I was driving back to the museum on the freeway and I noticed a dark-colored car was driving to my left. When it went ahead of me, I looked at the license plate and it said: “YES DDay”*. I pulled closer to see who was in the car, but the windows were heavily tinted so I couldn’t see anything inside.
The license plate was a State of California plate, with a white background and the words written in blue. What struck me very much was that there was a splash of rosy-pink color across the plate. I remember thinking, “such a manly car with such a ‘feminine’ number plate.”
I recall that our co-workers have had some experiences with license plates done by the Masters. I thought this experience also could be one of them. The standard CA plate allows seven spaces for letters/numbers, but this plate had eight; and a pink color splash was also very unusual.
And of course, I was joyful all the way to the museum and still am when I think of it.
* [Editor’s note: We take this to be a reference to the imminent emergence into a more public presence of Maitreya the World Teacher; the Day of Declaration (‘DDay’) refers to His true status being acknowledged and experienced on a world scale.]
In October 2010, I was on holiday with my husband in Japan. We were visiting Kyoto to see the temples there. They are situated in the hills on the edge of town and are reached by lanes lined with souvenir shops and tea houses. Descending one of these busy streets, my husband spotted an artist at work in a space in front of a house. I followed him to see what the man was painting.
He was Japanese, maybe in his fifties and wearing a pillbox-style hat. He spoke some English and they exchanged a few words.
I was startled by the painting. It was skilled, though it had a child-like quality. It showed a sea of people from all nations coming down the lane we were on. A real joy to behold. But the buildings were very different, even though it was the same street.
I was about to ask, when he started to say that he had been painting it for 16 years! During that time, children had grown up, families had moved, shops had changed hands — hence the change of scene. He then took a piece of wood, placed it on the canvas and, with white paint on brush, leaned on it and skilfully made a perfect edge along a roof, all the while sighing and “tutting” as if very unsatisfied with his work.
My husband left. Alone now and engaged with the artist and his seemingly growing anxiety, I found his actions easy to read along with his limited English. Among the things he said was: “1994 I started this.” He pulled off his hat and ruffled his grey hair, emphasizing the fact that it too had changed colour while trying to get the painting right. He dramatically waved his arms to the ground and declared that he’d die in this spot if he didn’t finish it soon!
I didn’t really know how to respond to this outburst. I touched his arm and hoped he would solve his crisis, then thought I should say goodbye. He calmly bade me farewell. I caught up with my husband further down the road, but suddenly felt compelled to go back and see if the artist was still there.
As I peeped through the bushes, he was standing back from his work and watching all the people while pouring some clear water from a flask into a cup.
Please would the Master say whether this artist was Maitreya or someone else?
We present here phenomena which, to the editors, are "signs of hope" and "signs of the time". Fortunately, our current stock of phenomena confirmed as real and genuine by Benjamin Creme's Master is fairly large. However, from time to time we also present material which has not been confirmed by BC's Master. We undertake to be as thorough as possible in our investigation of each 'miracle' or 'sign' and will present them for your consideration only, since we cannot now make use of the confirmation and additional information which in the past was always provided by BC's Master. Further details, when available, are given in the captions to the photographs.
Roberto Assagioli was born on 27 February 1888 in Venice, Italy. He moved to Florence in 1916 to study medicine. He became a specialist in Neurology and Psychiatry while also studying Psychology and Philosophy. After practicing different kinds of psychotherapy, he developed a new and profound technique called Psychosynthesis. …
In 1931 Assagioli wrote an article titled Dynamic Psychology and Psychosynthesis in which he first outlined the complete picture of his new theory and technique. The article formed the nucleus of his book titled Psychosynthesis — a Manual of Principles and Techniques, published in 1971 (Viking/Compass, New York) — 40 years after the basic idea had been formulated.
New concept of human nature
In Psychosynthesis — a Manual of Principles and Techniques, Assagioli posited a new concept of a human being with the need for the integration and development of different elements of the personality. While Freud and most of his disciples saw the person as an already complete entity, well-equipped with most necessary features, but more or less neurotic, under the spell of the subconscious mind, Assagioli emphasized the need for character-building and synthesizing the individual´s personality by concrete personal effort. In addition, he postulated the existence of the ‘Higher Self’ or transpersonal self which was not accepted in mainstream psychoanalytic concepts. …
While working as a scientist and psychiatrist, Assagioli was also a student of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings. He was a member of a group of disciples in the Arcane School and received (group and personal) instructions from the Tibetan Master Djwahl Khul. This part of his life was not disclosed for many years, as common knowledge of this fact might have damaged his scientific reputation. (Parts of the instructions have been published and can be found in the books Discipleship in the New Age, Volumes I and II, by A. A. Bailey.)
In 1931, Assagioli met Alice Bailey at a spiritual conference in Ascona, Switzerland. They had already been in contact for some years. In her autobiography, Alice Bailey wrote of him: “He is a man of rare beauty of character. He could not come into a room without his essential spiritual qualities making his presence known. The talks by Dr Assagioli were outstanding features of the Ascona conferences. He would lecture in French, Italian and English and the spiritual power which poured through him encouraged many into renewed consecration in their lives. …
In Part One, the five criteria of basic income were introduced. (It should be periodic, given in cash, individual, universal, and unconditional). We also presented the basic tenets of the Ageless Wisdom Teaching as well as the Master Djwhal Khul’s definition of spirituality.
In Part Two, we highlight how basic income is spiritual in itself and we give examples of basic income projects which match the Master Djwhal Khul’s criteria of spirituality.
How can income reform provide room for spiritual development while at the same time involving all areas of our lives — physical, emotional, social, and what we might call the intuitive aspect of our life? This is the answer provided by the Master Djwhal Khul: “All activity that drives man forward towards a form of development — physical, emotional, intuitive, social — if there is progress in relation to the present state, it is most profoundly of a spiritual nature”. (The Master Djwhal Khul, through Alice A. Bailey, Education in the New Age; Lucis Trust 1987). …
Several trials of Universal Basic Income (UBI) have been carried out which have shown positive results in all areas:
Physically: When everyone receives a basic income, people will not need to worry about getting enough food, clothing and housing. The basic necessities of life will be ensured. …
Emotionally: Receiving an income improves the quality of life for all. Poverty, on the other hand, leads to fear, increases stress, a sense of powerlessness, shame and feelings of inferiority. …
Socially: As UBI is exactly what it says it is — ‘universal’ — it will contribute to more justice and a balanced relationship between all people regardless of ethnicity, gender and age. …
Intuitive: When people are given freedom, their creative potential can be expressed more easily. The experience of feeling free to follow one’s soul’s impulses, to do things for oneself and others, can be achieved through a basic income. Fear and stress are reduced and there is more time for reflection and meditation, which, in turn, can promote intuition and connection with the soul. …
Implementing basic income is a spiritual act
In order for people to progress in their development, freedom is vital. In its essence, UBI represents a reform that leads to freedom by being unconditional and all-inclusive.
In all these aspects of life that we have looked at — physical, emotional, social and intuitive — we have shown that basic income will improve peoples’ lives and stimulate further development for all.
Implementing basic income will therefore be a spiritual act of great importance, while also being an act of political solidarity. Universal basic income is fully in line with The World Teacher Maitreya’s priorities of equitable distribution, and compatible with his message of love. …
Chilean author Enrique Barrios had an inner experience in 1985 that gave him great insights into the reality of our planet and our solar system. He was asked to write about his extraordinary experiences and what he had learned through his travels and the teaching given to him. It was suggested that he present his adventures with mentors from other planets as if it were a children’s story — perhaps in that way it would be less threatening to adults but allow the lessons being imparted to percolate more easily into their consciousness.
Barrios has written a number of books but the most popular is a trilogy about a child who travels through time and space with his friend Ami: Ami, Child of the Stars, Friend of the Stars, Ami Returns. Readers may be interested to note that Barrios recently rewrote and updated Ami Child of the Stars under the title: Omi of the Stars.
This ‘children’s story’ by Enrique Barrios challenges us with its power, its humour, the urgency of the warnings given to humanity and the profound wisdom of the teachings addressed, in the course of the many dialogues between Pedrito, Vinka and Ami, as well as with the various characters from other planets they meet in their travels to distant worlds. …
Pedrito, a young child of 10 years old, tells us a story of how he met Ami, the Child of the Stars, the many adventures they had together, and how Ami asked him to write a book presenting them as a children’s story.
On holiday by the seaside, at nightfall, Pedrito saw a red light falling from the sky into the sea in front of him. A child was swimming towards him, smiling benevolently. Gradually, Ami gained his trust and explained that he [Ami] came from another planet, that the universe is full of life, and that Earthlings are neither the most evolved nor the best creatures in the universe. Ami had many great qualities — constant goodwill, humour — and he knew everything about Pedrito and his family; he heard all his thoughts. He flew through the air without getting hurt. He helped Pedrito experience happiness and touch the beauty of the Earth. …
The fundamental law: Love
Little by little, Ami explained that the fundamental law of the universe is Love, and how not respecting it could only lead to suffering and destruction. To him, the whole cosmos is a form of life; planets are living beings, everything is interconnected, and what happens to the Earth affects the inhabitants of all cosmos. …
Several times during his conversations, Ami developed the three basic conditions for a civilized world:
1. The recognition that Love is the fundamental law of the Universe;
2. Seeing ourselves as a single planetary people of brothers and sisters;
3. Love must be the foundation of all world organization.
“It is only when a world recognizes that Love is the only force that can save it from destruction that it can survive.”
Then, in illustration of this universal law, Pedrito and his friends visited several advanced worlds, Ami commentating on their ways of life. “A civilized world is a place of peace, love and brotherhood.… Machines do the work, people study, help those in need, and participate in the aid plan of less advanced worlds.… Money does not exist; everyone comes to a distribution center to get what they need.… Everything belongs to everyone, the moment they use it.…
“Obligation does not exist in this world; every individual is important and is respected. …
“No one is in charge; when a problem arises, the most evolved people get together and find a solution.” …
The compelling message of these other-worldly visits is that Earth is at a crucial moment of changing consciousness levels; we must form a united human family or be destroyed; the technological level must be balanced by consciousness and Love.
“The world is currently being shaken by finer energies, which may panic some people … In the past man has surpassed animals by intelligence, this time Love will be the force of progression”

In 1918, Lucile Taylor Hansen, author of He walked the Americas, was a college student, spending her summer vacation with the Chippewa Indian tribe in Michigan. Their language and dances, their culture and religion struck a richly harmonic chord in her soul. Dark Thunder, the chief, shared much of the tribal knowledge with her and one day told her of a Holy Man who had visited the tribe in distant times. This man came to the Indians when their empire was united, and great cities stretched for miles. Wherever He went the miracles followed, and always He spoke of the Kingdom of His Father.
Part One conjured up wonderful scenes of ancient civilizations visited by a great holy teacher who Benjamin Creme’s Master confirmed to have been the Master Jesus. In Part Two we travel with “Lord Miracle Worker” to Central America, Mexico, Canada and further afield, visiting the tribes in all these regions and imparting wisdom and a vision of a marvelous future. …
Throughout His travels, Kate-Zahl, as he was known in Central America, had sometimes foreseen a grim and woeful future for the people of these lands. …
When Kate-Zahl departed Tollan, He told the people of His visions. He warned them to preserve their sacred writings in hidden caves so that future generations could treasure the words. He told them to tell their children that Mount Popo would foretell the coming times with its stern rumblings. He warned them to stay true to His ways to avert these disasters.
Then He fashioned a giant rock, intricately carved with the future cycles of the Dawn Star. Upon it He placed the time of warning — so that all would beware of the pale-skinned marauders.
Some did not believe these things; some wept because they did believe. All were distraught that the beauty around them could so easily fall. But high on Mount Popo, a further cycle had been revealed to the Prophet. The year was 2039, and as He looked into the valley, a golden beam of sun illumined a land reborn. Ended at last was mankind’s age of carnage, outgrown the wars of its childhood. All before Him lay in beauty.
Large centers of learning with books from all nations dotted the land. Inscribed on their walls were His words for all to see. His sacred temples were lovingly restored: once again the priesthood kept the Sacred Way. This cycle, too, He revealed in Tollan, and His parting words that day were an invitation, a gift to hold through the coming years:
“Walk with Me through this age of the future. View the shining buildings of unknown material, the new forms of transport moving through the land. Walk with Me the parkways with their birds and flowers, and look deeply into the faces of the people, no longer shrouded by fear, but shining with My light. Gaze into this time as mankind walks full-statured towards its destiny — into the Golden Age of Learning. Carry this vision on through the ages, and always remember Kate-Zahl, the Prophet.” …
