The Laws and Rules of Life
the Master –, through Benjamin Creme
Since time immemorial, men have known of, and expected the coming of, a great teacher, an
outstanding man of wisdom and revealed truth. Cyclically, age after age, have these Great Ones come forth. Today is
no exception to this cosmic law. As the new era dawns, men stand expectant as never before for a sight of the Great
Teacher Who, though they know it not, is already in men's midst.
Throughout the planet, old and young, poor
and rich, make ready for His Announcement, His Declaration of Mission and Purpose, His tryst with mankind. As the
old century and era wind to their close, men's minds are quickening to the new energies which will fashion the
forms of the new civilization and impose their qualities on the consciousness of men. These qualities – of
synthesis and fusion, tolerance and goodwill, harmlessness and brotherly love – will, in time, bring the race of
men to the manifestation of its destined glory. Thus shall it be, and thus shall men enter again into their age-old
Covenant with the Divine.
Little though they may know it, men are on the threshold of a re-awakening to the
very meaning and purpose of their existence.
Trial and test
It is, in part, to see men safely
through this period of trial and test that their Elder Brothers, the Masters of Wisdom, are returning openly to the
world. With Their great leader – Maitreya, the World Teacher – at Their head, They will inspire the creation of
the new, more appropriate structures which will allow men to live and work together in peace. From that peace will
manifest a creativity and resource unlike aught seen before.
Men will learn and understand the subtle laws
which govern their lives: the basic law of life, the Law of Karma, of Cause and Effect, which controls the destiny
of all; the related Law of Rebirth, which makes possible the journey of the Soul in matter; the Law of Harmlessness,
which governs right relationship, and the great Law of Sacrifice by which all evolution proceeds.
understanding of these laws, men will come to resemble their Mentors, their Elder Brothers, and to demonstrate the
Divinity shared by all. They will hearken to the teaching of the Wise Ones and, step by step, inherit their
Birthright. Men are born to become Gods and naught can change that destiny; the timing, only, lies in men's hands.
the world will know that the One for Whom men wait is now among us. Soon, indeed, will He show His face and beckon
men to His side. Calling for justice for all will the Great Lord stake His claim to the right to teach the Laws and
Rules of Life, the Sacred Path by which men become Gods.
