Co-workers with God
by the Master ñ, through Benjamin Creme
The Masters come to serve, to teach and to work together with man. Through
them, men and women will become co-workers with God.
Looked at from Our vantage point, the present situation of the world is not without its problems and dangers, but nevertheless carries within it the seeds of change and hope for the future. What that future precisely will be depends on man himself and his readiness for a radical transformation of his attitudes and actions.
Without doubt, were man to stumble forward blindly, alone, his cause were as good as lost, for he lacks as yet the wisdom to restrain his power; he lacks the will to implement his higher aspirations; he lacks, above all, the love for his brother which would end forever much of the misery in the world.
Happily for the world, man is not alone. Behind him stand, and have always stood, the Elder Brothers of the race, ready to succour Our ailing younger brethren when the call for help rises to Us. Once again that call has come and We respond with joy. Without Our help, man's plight would be sorry indeed. So far has he strayed from the Path of Truth that even the least wise see the dangers. The foolhardy, however, ignoring the quicksands, continue to play their game of chance.
When you see Us, you will see men who have made before you the journey back to God. You will recognize in Us divine characteristics potential in yourselves. Thus will you know your future glory. Out of the present chaos shall We inspire a new order; from the hatreds and divisions shall we create harmony and peace, while from doubt and fear shall We engender meaning, faith and joy.
We come to serve, to teach and to work together with you. We know your problems and We know, too, the solutions to these problems. We can see, and hold in reverence, the inner divinity of men, and await, with confidence, its manifestation when evoked by Us.
This will lead to a new situation on the Earth. God, through Us, and man will come together. From that divine at-one-ment will flow the new civilization, and into man's hands will be placed the power of the Creator. Man will find himself a co-worker with God.
Presently, the world will know of Our existence. For long have We prepared to come before you and do so now in a spirit of joy. Know that there is naught that you suffer that We have not suffered; there is no pain or humiliation which We have not known; your failures have been Our failures, your faltering steps Ours. On the self-same path have We achieved and offer you the fruits of that achievement. We are the forerunners, the Pointers on the Way.
Now is approaching the time of regeneration. Now commences the Era of Truth. First, Maitreya. Then We shall be seen.
Crisis and promise
The present is a time of crisis and promise. The New struggles to find form. The Old strives to survive amidst the destined change. Humanity is ready for the next step; the long sleep is ending; the sleepers awake. The call to freedom and joy echoes in the hearts of the peoples and stirs them to action. Little time there is now to prepare. Soon the face of Maitreya will be seen. He alone can bridge the divisions among the nations and bring them, trusting, to each other's aid.
