Meet Share International at Bayview Library Nov. 17 for a ray of hope in these chaotic times

by Marc Gregory and Monte Leach

Even in these chaotic and perilous times, there is reason for hope.

A statue of the Virgin Mary in a New Mexico Catholic church that appeared to be weeping in the past is reportedly crying again. Churchgoers say the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe started weeping again on Sept. 1. Parishioners have been going to the church to pray. The rector of a church in India with another weeping Madonna explained, “This is a message for mankind to give up evil and practice a good way of life. Love your neighbors as well as society.” – Photo: Todd Baily, Hobbs NM News-Sun

Humanity finds itself at a major crossroads: Do we choose the path of selfish separatism and inequality based on greed and competition, leading to the destruction of ourselves and planet Earth or the path of cooperation and sharing leading to global peace and prosperity?

Here to help us make the correct choice stands a group of Teachers unparalleled in their enlightenment and wisdom, unequalled in their ability to love and to serve. They are the Masters of Wisdom. At their head stands a being of the most extraordinary compassion and insight: Maitreya, the World Teacher. As the one awaited under various names by all major religious traditions, and as a Teacher for all humanity, Maitreya, along with the Masters of Wisdom, are here to guide us safely into the future.

The existence of these great Teachers was first made known in the West in the late 1800s by Helena Blavatsky, who lived among the Masters of Wisdom in the Himalayas for three years. In the early 20th century, Blavatsky’s work was continued by Alice Bailey, and, more recently, by British esotericist and artist Benjamin Creme. All three of these authors and educators were trained by, and worked directly with, the Masters of Wisdom.

According to the Ageless Wisdom tradition, as it is known, these highly advanced Teachers have lived in the remote areas of the world through the ages, helping and guiding humanity from behind the scenes. Through his work over many years, Benjamin Creme made it known that at this critical time for humanity and the planet, the Masters of Wisdom, headed by Maitreya, are coming forward now to live among us and teach us directly.

The path to peace

Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom are teachers in the broadest sense of the word. They are not here to establish a new religion, but to show us how to live together in peace. This is simpler than we imagine, Maitreya has said. The key is an equitable sharing of the Earth’s resources among all the world’s people.

Through sharing we lessen global tensions, generate greater trust and cooperation among the nations – and begin to build a world where all have the basic necessities of life and live in balance with the environment.

Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom are teachers in the broadest sense of the word. They are not here to establish a new religion, but to show us how to live together in peace.

With the guidance of Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom, if we choose to accept it, we can create a just, sustainable and peaceful future for all of us. Such a future is not only possible – but necessary if we are to survive.
