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 as is the following one.

Almost without exception, the nations of the world are experiencing profound changes, both internally and in relation to each other. This process is the direct result of the energetic stimulus now pervading the planet as a whole, and will lead eventually to a complete transformation of the existing structures. To quicken these changes is Our desire and wish, but so great today are the tensions that We must proceed with care; too much pressure here or there could have disastrous consequences for large sections of the world. Hence Our cautious approach to the problems which face man today. Change must proceed in an orderly fashion or chaos will result.
Many there are who fear change and who see the breakdown of the old as a profound loss of much-loved forms. Many reject these changes as a threat to their privileges and prestige. Many mistake the legitimate aspirations of peoples for freedom and justice for the threat of anarchy from within. At the same time, there are those who would sweep away all that humanity has garnered of the beautiful and the true. Impatient for the new forms, they fail to see the necessity of gradual progress and discount much that is of value in the past.
Our problem, as Guardians of the race, is to steer a course between these two extremes, applying the curb and the spur as We sense the need. Always, Our aim is the achievement of ordered change with the minimum of cleavage. Look, therefore, for Our hand in world events and judge them wisely. Much that takes place is fashioned by Us and must eventuate in a better world. When you see Us, you will know that this world is in safe keeping.
Listen to Our counsel and act. Heed Our advice and refashion the world in stages which are possible and sure. Take care that your brothers’ needs are met and you will not err. If you are asked: “In which direction should we go?”, answer with joy: “To serve the greatest need; to Brotherhood.”
To rebuild the fabric of your lives, new materials and new skills will be necessary. Replace the outworn forms with the new energies now available, and learn to create in relationships forged in joy and love. Temper your lives in the fire of service and contribute your share to the work of change.
With Us as guides, all is possible. All will be remade in beauty and truth. Willing hands will be there to help you and naught can delay the New Beginning.
When you see Us you will know that the Brothers are men like yourselves but whose love is manifest. We will teach you the secret of love. In joy shall We take you to the farther shore and shall place you before the Keeper of the Gates.
All change is preceded by tension and tension brings fear. However, fear has no place in the heart activated by service and love. Don, then, the armour of service and envisage the future with joy. Welcome gladly the changes which must ensue and create together the Dispensation of Love. (Share International, April 1983)
