The end of hunger
by the Master Ė, through Benjamin Creme 


Much attention is given today to the question of hunger. Many agencies and groups around the world focus exclusively on this issue. Why, it may be asked, is this so? Why should one, albeit important, factor in menís lives command so much attention, engage so much concern, arouse such controversy and inspire such dedicated service and self-sacrifice?

Men know by direct experience that hunger, as a continuing state, is unnatural and does violence to our humanity. They know that from the inception of life on planet Earth all living creatures must eat to assuage their hunger and so maintain their physical manifestation.
Over the ages, as a result of climatic change, large sections of humanity have battled, with the animals, for survival. They have known hunger on a scale unmatched today. Technology, science and fast communications have eliminated, for the majority in our time, the suffering of mass hunger and starvation.

Disgrace

The question arises: why, in a world so well endowed, does hunger exist to such degree? Why, with food enough and more for all, do millions still sadly starve and bring disgrace on manís divinity?
By what law do men assume the right to mark those who shall live and those who must die? From what complacent depths are such judgements made? 

By what initiative, what new-found grace, can men stem the tide of this iniquity?

Levelling

Soon, events will force men to re-think the purpose of their lives and recognize their common heritage. Soon, a new levelling will teach both rich and poor their natural brotherhood. Presently, the Teacher Himself will demonstrate His solidarity with all groups and kinds of men, and, in emulation of Him, will todayís cleavages be healed.
Mark well these times; they are the beginning of the end of the old, the birthday of the new.

Today, the leaders of nations wrestle with events beyond control. Forces they know naught of drive them to unplanned and oft hysterical response. They flee from chaos into chaos, led by their own dogma.

Dilemma

Meanwhile, We patiently wait. We know the outcome of manís present dilemma, and aid to the full extent of karmic law. We know, too, that man, of his own free will, must choose the path to future glory: the path of brotherhood and love, justice and sharing.
We rally to manís need. We strive to teach and serve. 

Man himself must act, and test his divinity in the crucible of experience.

The signs are there for all to see: the signs of the new time, when hunger will be no more.


From the March 1993 issue of Share International
