The age of miracles has no end
by the Master –, through Benjamin Creme
The milk-drinking statues, which alerted Hindus to the coming of their teacher is just one of the many signs of Maitreya's and the Masters' reappearance.
Increasingly, men are becoming aware that the 'age of miracles' has not ended but, on the contrary, waxes strong throughout the world. Recent manifestations have shaken to the core the complacent certainties of millions. Intensive media interest has guaranteed a world-wide audience for future miraculous events which will astonish, even more, believer and sceptic alike. The door has thus been opened through which Maitreya can emerge -- and be accepted as the force behind the miracles.
Thus has been prepared a twofold approach to the hearts and minds of men: modern communications will ensure that the thoughts and words, the ideas and hopes, of Maitreya will reach millions in the privacy of their homes; while miraculous manifestations will engage the attention of countless millions more throughout the world. Already, the name of Maitreya is being linked to recent happenings in temples East and West.
Very soon, therefore, men can expect to hear that the Teacher awaited by all is, indeed, among us. That He lives, and presents His living teaching for the greater livingness of all. Soon, men will know that their long wait is over, that the world has been prepared for an event greater than the mind can contemplate; an event surpassing all in the long history of Earth.
Never before, in the known history of man, have the Masters walked openly among men. For the first time in countless ages will They thus conduct Their myriad tasks of succour. In this way, a new link will be forged between the world of men and that of their Elder Brothers. Men will seek to emulate the qualities of these Perfected Ones, and through such inspiration and example, the evolution of the race will proceed apace. Thus will it be. Thus will the Guardians bring to bear Their knowledge and experience for the benefit of all.
Those engaged in the work of preparation may take courage from the recent world-wide miraculous events, for they presage the imminent appearance of Maitreya before men. Those who have worked to spread the knowledge of His presence will know that their efforts were not in vain; that the world needed their service; that they gave of their best in answer to their heart's call. They will know, too, that the thanks and love of Maitreya go with them all their days.
Miracles abound, and will continue to astonish; the forlorn hopes of so-called scientists and experts will prove of no avail to discount the evidence of men's eyes. Turning their minds to the hope which these manifestations engender, men will connect them with the wise words of Maitreya, and follow His lead.
