A time like no other
The speed of change today outstrips man's ability to respond and
understand, so confusion and fear dominate man's thinking.
by the Master –, through Benjamin Creme
In normal times, it can be assumed that changes will take place slowly, if at all. Humanity
needs much time to contemplate, to measure, and to respond to, all manifestations of possible change presented to
it. Thus has it been and thus, it is expected, will be the future.
However, these are not, by any reckoning,
normal times. Thus it is today that the speed of change accelerates, and out-distances by far, the capacity of many
to respond and understand. They are left rudderless, without compass in the storm, and seek only to cling to the old
certainties, which, sadly now, have left them unguarded and alone.
For many, this is a time of major
confusion and fear. Little, it would seem, is there to change their apprehension that the long-expected armageddon
is soon upon us, that humanity is doomed, that the millennium heralds the end of all life as we have known it, and
that we must prepare for the “end times”. Such is the view of so many today that it behoves those who know
otherwise to raise their voices against these destructive thoughtforms; to raise, instead, men’s hope of a better
life for all.
This better life will be man’s, beyond question. Maitreya and His Group
are pledged to aid, in every possible way, man’s further progress; all that the Law allows will be given — men
cannot imagine the gifts which lie in store. Sooner than many may think, the Great Lord will appear before the
world, and, offering Himself in service to all, will create a new dispensation in which each will know and
demonstrate his worth; each will see his brother as himself; his goal the establishment of true and lasting peace.
Thus will it be, and thus will a new and thrilling passion for life replace the present cynicism and distrust. Have
no fear, the Earth is not doomed nor about to end in chaos. On the contrary, plans are in hand for its regeneration
and that of all its kingdoms.
Men will soon know that this is a time like no other
before. Never in man’s long history have the opportunities for such rapid progress as now pertains been his. Seize
then this special time as the divine blessing which it is and move boldly forward into the future. Take heart from
these words from One Who knows the Plan and Who calmly awaits its manifestation by the hands of men. Your Elder
Brother knows that man will triumph.
