Throughout the centuries, men have adopted many different forms of government,
ranging from the most despotic to the most egalitarian. Today, most countries
have opted for a democratic form, that is, one elected by popular vote
for one or other political party. It is assumed that the voting system
used is fair, honest, free from malpractice and fraud.
Unfortunately, as recent history shows, this is often not the case, even in those
countries which lay great stress on the probity of their election process. Deception
and duplicity abound, men and factions are brought to power by chicanery and
More authoritarian are those one-party states where decisions are made by a committee
of ‘strong men’ backed by the army and police. The people have little
say in the laws which rule them and often, as yet, do not feel the need to claim
Some countries are in the grip of cruel despots, hungry for power and the wealth
which comes with it. Some are ruled by deluded zealots, sure that they and their
followers are in the hands of God and are carrying out His plans. Others are
struggling to help their people out of poverty and pain, and to fend off the
demands of their wealthy neighbours.
Still others are fighting for their independence or are engulfed in chaos and
Men must take to heart the lesson from this evidence: many are the
ways of organizing the needs of different peoples. Greater tolerance, therefore,
is necessary in the approach to this vital matter. The energies of the
rays governing the nations are different and require different structures
in which to express their qualities. It is not the evolutionary Plan that
one form of government, democratic or otherwise, should prevail. The needs
of men are more real and more important than ideologies. Tolerance of difference
unites, while ideologies divide.
When Maitreya speaks openly, therefore, He will show that unity in
diversity is the key to future harmony. That all the nations have a destiny,
unique and sacred. He will point the way to achieve this blessed state and
encourage men to open their hearts to a wiser understanding of the Plan.
Under Maitreya’s guidance, men will come to appreciate and value the
richness of the achievements of themselves and others. The urge to compete
and to dominate will gradually subside and a new chapter will open for men
in brotherhood and peace. Thus will it be.
