|It is becoming increasingly clear that man is ready for a
great leap forward. Despite the many tensions and dangers which still exist, and which to many
seem increasing, the human kingdom is moving forward and upwards in line with the Plan which
guides the actions of us all. The Cosmic Magnet draws everything towards a planned
destination; the energies of the magnet wax in power and cannot be withstood. Man must learn
and understand the power and benefice of Cosmos. Thus will he grow correctly with the minimum
The Light of Cosmos shines on man as never before, inspiring him to simplify his life and so regain the connection with the Source which, sadly, he has lost.
Were men to heed these words, they would soon enter into a state of Being altogether new in their long journey to perfection.
Time, for the old ways, is fast running out. The old thinking and acting, which cause men so much distress, is nearing its end. A new Light sheds its beauty over humanity and brings to a conclusion the aberrations of the past.
Thus do We see the future for man as one bathed in the light of the new understanding. Thus do We rejoice at the nearness of the time.
Manís long struggle to build the structures which will serve his rightful purposes is almost over. The required forms are already dimly sensed and soon will break upon his understanding as revelation.
From that moment alone, his progress will astonish all but the watching Brothers. We have for long worked towards this end and wait patiently for its enactment. We know that menís hearts are ready to give form to their loftiest aspirations, to enter willingly into a future as yet unknown, to rectify the mistakes of the past and to begin again on the long ladder of ascent. We know this to be so and have confidence in manís capacity to change when needs he must.
This is such a time. Conditions on Earth are deteriorating rapidly: the divisions which have dogged men for centuries raise, as ever, their perennial problems. The planet groans under the impact of manís wanton destruction. Men await a sign, an assurance of leadership and guidance, and an opportunity to hope.
The signs, for men, are everywhere to be seen. The guidance is assured. The reasons for hope are long and constantly offered.
That men heed them not results from fear. Blind, men are, because they are afraid to see. When, soon, Maitreya steps into the centre of manís affairs, making known the reasons for, and the solutions to, manís problems, they will see that the leadership they yearn for has long been theirs to enjoy, that the time has come to abandon the destructive ways of the past, and that all unknown, they have within themselves the hope and capacity which will remake this world and set it, once again, balanced and safe, bravely on its destined path.
