More and more, the nations are beginning to recognize, to take
seriously and to deal with, an age-old problem, namely corruption. In
some parts of the world corruption has been a way of life for centuries.
This has benefited the few, of course, at the expense of the many. For
untold ages, corrupt leaders and powerful politicians have waxed rich on
the taxes imposed on their subjects and citizens. In modern times, the
large corporations of the West have been found guilty of ‘cooking the
books’ on a massive scale, while in the East it is taken for granted
that every transaction needs the ‘greasing’ of someone’s palm.
Corruption is endemic, and runs through some societies from the
president or prime minister to the police and sport. Electoral
corruption is rampant, as recent elections have demonstrated, even in
countries supposedly dedicated to freedom and democracy. Such corrupt
governments fail and betray their peoples and so surrender their right
In the midst of such corruption is it possible to engender trust without
which the future for men would be bleak indeed? Without trust, a fairer
sharing of resources would be a forlorn hope. Without trust, the global
decisions required to sustain our planetary home would never be taken.
Without blessed and beneficent trust, men would forfeit their right of
Stewardship of Planet Earth, and would seal themselves off for aeons from
Thus would it be, and thus should men tackle seriously, and without delay,
the corrosive impact of corruption on every strata of society, and every
nook and cranny of our planetary life.
To help men to do this, you may be sure that Maitreya will be at pains to
demonstrate to men the eroding effect of corruption in all its many
manifestations. He will show that if men would become the Gods they
essentially are, they must abandon the old ways of deceit and subterfuge. To
tackle the serious environmental problems, He will explain, men must work
together, in trust. Without trust, Maitreya will emphasize, little can be
done. So steeped in corruption themselves are the leaders of the nations,
that they trust no one.
Maitreya will show that men have but one choice to create the necessary
trust: to share the produce of this bounteous Earth more evenly across the
world, and so end for ever the starvation and poverty of millions, dying in
the midst of plenty.
Will the leaders listen to the words of Maitreya? For the most part,
possibly, no, not at first. But soon the people everywhere will hear, and
see the wisdom of Maitreya’s advice. They will say amen to His wise words
and support His Cause. World public opinion will find its voice and its
Mentor, and against its power the obstructive voices of the greedy dictators
and corrupt politicians will fade. So will it be, and so will begin the
cleansing and transformation of this world.
