It is becoming more and more obvious that the economic systems of today no longer work. Too many, millions indeed, are excluded from the right to sufficient food to sustain life. The productive capacity of this planet is vast, but so inadequate and unequal are the means of distribution that millions suffer and die without cause. Men know this to be true yet little is done to remedy this crime.
Whither now? For how much longer must the poor suffer in this way? For how long can the nations support this iniquity before an immeasurable catastrophe engulfs the world?
Is it not strange that men have never sought to remedy this eternal, tragic situation where millions suffer and die from want in the midst of plenty? The simplest of solutions, it would seem, has never occurred to those who have abundant plenty. Why does not simple justice reveal the solution? That the rich must share the riches they control is not only sensible and just but essential for world peace and the benefit of all if the survival of all is to be assured.
Make no mistake, men must come to realise that sharing is not simply a good and just idea but is essential if mankind is to survive. Only wise and just sharing will bring the peace which all men desire. For without sharing trust would never arise.
Be assured that Maitreya Himself will tell men this simple truth and open their eyes to the benefits which will follow. Become one of His many workers who seek to establish the need for sharing and justice. Remember that no man is separate and alone, that all men, knowingly or not, are linked together with invisible ties in a long journey of succeeding revelation. Renounce the path of separation and aid your brothers and sisters on the way.
