Steadily, humanity moves forward to its Great Decision. Unbeknown to all but a few, men are being tested as never before in their long history on Earth.
The Sword of Cleavage, wielded by Maitreya, the Christ and World Teacher, is doing its beneficent work: separating and dividing men, accentuating their different natures and proclivities.
In this way, the choice before men becomes clearer, more sharply defined. Maitreya’s energy of love is impersonal, it stimulates everyone, those who long for peace and right relations, and those who love greed and competition, risking thereby a final war and total self-destruction. Thus the importance of the choice faced now by all.
Many might wonder that such a choice is necessary. Surely no-one wants a devastating war? Today, a small and local war could become a major war of nuclear dimension. The result would be too terrible to contemplate, yet there are those who, even now, are planning how to survive such an eventuality.
The choice for men is clear: to continue recklessly on the present greedy course and destroy life on planet Earth for ever, or to follow the promptings of the benevolent heart and practise sharing and justice as the only guarantee of a peaceful future for men of Earth.
The events of the Arab Spring are a sign that the young are responding to Maitreya’s Call. Ahead of their elders, they have awakened to the new energies of Aquarius and the promise of the new life that they bring. They have lost all fear and gladly sacrifice themselves for a new-found freedom and dignity. A new splendour is growing among the young.
Throughout the world, groups plot and plan for revolution. Arms in many countries are now stockpiled for this purpose. Not revolution but evolution is Maitreya’s advocacy. He knows well that revolution precipitates conflict and carnage, replacing one set of problems by another. What is required is a step by step process of change which allows everyone the experience of being involved in their own destiny.
Sharing is the sole means of ensuring such a process; sharing alone will engender the trust essential even to begin. Maitreya has said: “The first step into sharing is the first step into your Divinity.” Accept sharing therefore, and enter into your birthright.
