The New Millennium begins
the Master –, through Benjamin Creme
It is with baited breath that men await the appearance of Maitreya.
'Millennium fever' has now reached the point of 'auto-combustion' and men, like impatient horses champing at the
bit, grow restless and ready for action. What form or direction that action must take is still unclear to most but
the sense of impending, far-reaching change is now uppermost in men's minds.
Throughout the world, the desire
for peace has been expressed by young and old as their dearest wish. They recognize, better than the politicians,
the imperative for peace. A new sense of human unity, if only briefly, has shown men the possibility of lasting
practical goodwill. This, alone, augurs well for the future. Throughout millennium celebrations, a
growing realization that an era has ended and a new age begun imposed itself on men's minds and hearts. New hope and
aspiration has replaced the former apathy and set alight men's expectation of a better life for all. Plans for
further aid for the dispossessed are already under way, and reflect the growing sense of responsibility now felt by

their readiness to act and serve. The taste of Oneness has opened their hearts to the beauty of love and sharing,
and ripened their readiness to create a better world. The leadership given by Maitreya will not disappoint. He will
raise the hopes and aspirations of all, and set loose the highest that men have, albeit hidden now and unexpressed
through fear and ignorance of its existence. He will conquer men's fear and establish, in truth, a new humanity.
Thus will the Great Lord pave the way for the next phase of His Mission - the establishment of the
Kingdom of God among men. This is not the ethereal kingdom beloved by the average religious person but the Spiritual
Hierarchy of Masters and initiates of which Maitreya is the head. His is the task to create a reflection of that
divine expression in the outer, physical world, a kingdom which all men can see, and to which, eventually, all will
be drawn on their path to perfection.
Through the doors of Initiation the disciples will pass into the Halls
of Wisdom, and take their places as conscious Servers of the Plan. Thus will it be and thus will the Great Ones lead
the new humanity into their destiny as Sons of God.
Maitreya is about to knock loudly on the doors which lead
to freedom and justice and peace. Listen and recognize His knock and be prepared to act boldly and wisely under His
