Man's momentous choice
Master –, through Benjamin Creme.
There comes a time in the history of men, nations and races when they must reorient themselves to the reality of
the life in which they have their being, and seek to understand the purpose of their existence and the means by
which that purpose may better be fulfilled.
Today, the present race of men -- the fifth in historical
sequence -- and all the nations, stand at such a point. Soon, men everywhere will be called upon to weigh heavily
the consequence of their actions. On their decisions rests the future of this world.
Very soon, now, Maitreya
will present the nations with a momentous choice: to continue in the present fearful, self-destructive mode and

their inheritance. Thus shall it be. Thus shall "the Teacher of men and of angels" begin His mission, and
thus shall the sons of men restart their journey to become the Sons of God.

are turning to the nurturing fire of their inner lives, and finding solace therein. A myriad miracles, East and
West, remind them of the unseen presence of the divine in life, and hold before them the promise of a better future
Expectantly, men await the Teacher. Knowingly or not, they have called Him
forth. Maitreya stands ready to emerge and to begin His call to men: "See yourselves as One and enter your
birthright." "Share, and know the meaning of justice and peace." "Learn to love and to trust and
know the beauty of life." "See all men as your brothers and become the Gods you are."
shall the Great Lord speak. Thus shall He awaken the hearts of men to the imperatives of the time. The time of
