From the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme’s Master provided articles to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances. Many of these articles seem even more relevant now than when they were first published, in this case in December 1983.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
Each century brings man closer to his goal: the demonstration, in all its perfection, of the Light of God. In this way man becomes what he potentially is – a living God. Each incarnation marks a step cut in the mountain of ascent. With each such experience man adds to his vehicles a modicum of light, subtly changing thereby the vibration of his bodies. When all his bodies are thus vibrating to the frequency of light, the task is completed, the journey ended. From the point of view of man, the journey is over; from the point of view of Those Who have achieved, the journey has but begun.
Thus each man and woman makes the metamorphosis from man to God. Out of the chrysalis of matter, with all its limitations, emerges the liberated Master, radiating the Light of God.
Across the vastness of the universe, this Light persists; through all dimensions and planes it expresses its nature, conditioned only by the forms in which it shows itself. These forms give access to the Light to those whose consciousness rests in the world of matter, but essentially Light is formless, needing no structure to sustain its Being.
Deep within each one of us dwells such a light, awaiting the opportunity to shine forth. Within each glows the potential of all Cosmos. Within each, too, is the will to bring forth that light and thus make manifest the nature of God. That light and that will pertain to the soul and come into activity as a result of soul alignment. Seek, therefore, alignment with the soul and bring into manifestation the purpose of God. Search within and find the source of all knowledge and love. Reveal to the world the Light of the soul and join the ranks of those who serve.
The world stands ready for more light. The peoples everywhere are thirsty for new knowledge of themselves and of God. Because of this readiness, the Masters have prepared Themselves to inaugurate a new era of Light. Limitless opportunities for progress will be offered to mankind: man will marvel at the discoveries which will open the door to mastery of natural forces; he will stand amazed by the wonder and beauty thus revealed; he will know for certain the fact of God and his relation to that divinity, and will enter willingly into co-operation with the Divine Plan.
All of this awaits humanity as it stands at the threshold of the Aquarian Age. This will be an age in which the Divine Plan will flourish once again, bringing man at last into conscious acceptance of his destiny.
Many today would doubt this, as they survey a world of cleavage and tension. The problems seem too complex, the divisions too extreme. But precisely then, at the moment of greatest need, comes the Teacher, ready to bring new Light. Such a One is now among you, waiting in the wings, patiently, for the invitation to serve.
Release the Light that He brings and enfold all things in holiness. Embrace His Teachings and bring succour to all in need. Manifest His Light and create anew this world.
