The need for trust
the Master –, through Benjamin Creme
There will come a time when men will look back on this period of travail as one of rediscovery
of meaning and purpose amid a chaos of false values. For untold ages, men have set their sights on the acquisition
of wealth and power, prestige and acclaim. The subtler arts of spiritual knowledge and wisdom have attracted but the
few, and perforce men have walked the stormy way of warring faction, ignorance and fear.
Today, at last, a
new light is bringing men to the realization of their future glory as co-workers and co-creators with God. Many are
the trials which await men on the path to such a destiny, but never before have they been so ready and prepared to
meet this challenge. Against all the odds, and in spite of all appearances to the contrary, mankind is about to
emerge from its chrysalis of darkness, its impotence and fear. With growing boldness and assurance, the steps of men
are set in the direction of unity and justice, cooperation and sharing, simplicity and trust.
such a trust is necessary brooks no gainsaying. Naught can be achieved until the bonds of trust are set. Hitherto,
the absence of trust has hampered the highest aspirations of men, cleaving the nations and placing in jeopardy the
future of the race.
Trust, the reflection of love, arises spontaneously when fear subsides. Trust alone can
create miracles of co-operation and lead to actions otherwise impossible.
Thus it is in the world today.
Under the impress and inspiration of the Christ, the leaders of the nations are beginning to trust.
remains to be done but already the signs are there for all to see. A new chapter is opening in the long story of man
which will set the seal on his future glory.
The growing sense of interdependence is the proof that man has
not totally lost his way, that he has stepped back from the brink and is entering a new era of co-operation and
In the individual sphere, the need for trust is paramount. Naught so
corrupts relationships as the absence of this precious jewel. It matters not that trust is broken or betrayed; trust
begets trust and allows the sweet flow of love to take its course.
Few today can envision a world in which
trust truly reigns. Few there are who can visualize the calm, experience the beauty, of such a time. Let your
imagination conjure a world free from fear and crime, competition and greed. Open your mind to the concept of
universal justice and peace, manifested joy.
Do this and glimpse a world in which the trust of the
uncorrupted child blossoms again in the man free from fear. In that world all becomes possible. Man stands now on
the threshold of its discovery.
