Since the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme’s Master has provided articles to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances. Indeed, many of these articles seem more relevant now than when they were first published.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
Seldom before has the world seemed so beset with problems. Across the globe, in almost every country, forces are afoot which disturb all balance and security. Chaos and mayhem wreak their terror on an ever-increasing scale. Millions suffer the most degrading hardship and want while whole nations convulse in the throes of change.
Into this cauldron has come the Christ. Recognized or not, His hand can be seen behind the outer turmoil, guiding and cementing the forces for good, ensuring their final triumph. Little as it may seem, a new order is being created from these warring forces, a new livingness from the ashes of the dying forms.
As commercialization spreads its cancer around the world, poisoning the life-blood of human relations, commerce and government, more and more are awakening to the danger, and are searching for new modes of intercourse and trade.
While ruthless and ambitious men spread havoc in their homelands, igniting the fires of hatred long slumbering in the hearts of their peoples, a new willingness to aid the victims and to counter the aggression asserts itself in the forum of the nations.
The hand of the Christ strays never from the helm. Only the fulfilment of the Law limits His range of action. Always, His forces are alert and ready to intervene when too heavy a weight would crush humanity’s cause.
Take heart, then, from the knowledge that these days of fire and fear will end; man’s long suffering and pain will soon be over. Take courage from the knowledge that man is not alone, that his Elder Brothers know and watch each painful, passing phase.
Prepare, now, to see and build the future. Envision it enfolded in your highest aspiration. Learn to be detached amid the present chaos and add not your quota of fears to the encroaching dark. Nearer than you may think is the day of rejoicing; hatred, too, in time, runs its course.
Awaken, soon, to the new day. Polish, anew, each bright aspiration. A new light, the Light of the World, is now, once more, among you. Reveal the growing light which now enters each sentient being, and redress the imbalances of old.
We watch and wait and are with you. Each day brings Our presence closer to your ken. When you see Us you will know that the time to work together for the safeguarding of the race has arrived: no longer must “market-forces” blight man’s ascending path. No longer must cruel ambition hold sway over the lives of the people. Never again must millions starve in the midst of plenty. No more must the future of the young be sold above their heads. The future of freedom and justice beckons. Accept it, accept it.
