Over many years Share International magazine has published regular
articles by a Master of Wisdom. Far from being mystical or remote, the
Master often addresses the immediate problems facing humanity. His latest
article ‘A call for sanity’ addresses the challenge facing the American
people (and the world) as the day of the US Presidential election
approaches. He is at pains to clarify the choices open to them and to
inspire a result which, surely, all sane people would hope for.
A call for sanity
The citizens of the United States of America are approaching a time of
critical decision. On their decision, in November, this year, may depend the
future happiness of many millions, not alone American, but of many other
countries. One would have thought that this decision would not be difficult
to make, that the choice was surely obvious to all who treasure peace and
However, it appears that there are those who think otherwise, who reserve
for themselves the right to invade other countries on the pretext that they
might be plotting harm for them. Such pre-emptive action, one would have
assumed, was long ago abandoned by modern, civilized states, and relegated
to man’s illegal past.
Not so, sadly, we are assured. The present American administration, far from
showing remorse for their unjust and cruel invasion of Iraq, proudly assert,
if re-elected, their firm resolve to continue their programme of pillage in
their ‘war on terror’.
To fight a ‘war on terror’ is to fight a phantom, a useless, costly and
dangerous exercise. Terror is the Hydra, a many-headed monster: each head
severed, as Hercules discovered, is replaced by two. This US administration,
in its arrogance and ignorance, has fallen blindly into the trap. Those who
suffer are the American people, their victims, and the world as a whole.
There is but one way to deal with terror, to end, forever, this canker in
our midst: to seek its cause.
There are, of course, several causes of terrorism, but above all in
importance is the unbalanced distribution of the world’s resources. This
creates the dangerous gulf between the nations which drives men to use
terror to realize their dreams. They are desperate men, who feel they have
nothing to lose. There is an immense, untapped army of such desperate people
ready to die, if necessary, for the justice they long for which, rightly,
they see as theirs.
No ‘war on terror’ can defeat such an army. No arrogant posturing can drive
them away from the bastions of the Western world.
No nation, however strong, can by itself defeat terrorism. It is born of the
injustice which disfigures this world.
Only when men learn to share will we see the end of terrorism. Only through
sharing can the goal of justice and freedom be realized. Our appeal to you,
citizens of the great and blessed United States of America, is to think
carefully, and from the heart, as is your wont, when you deliver your vote.
Cast your vote for peace, justice and the rule of Law.

Share International —
For 30 years artist, author, and lecturer Benjamin Creme has been
preparing the way for the biggest event in history — the emergence of
Maitreya the World Teacher and His group. Millions of people around the
world have heard his information and wait expectantly for this momentous
Since 19 July 1977 Maitreya has been living in the Asian community of
London, gradually emerging before the public. Long awaited by all faiths
under different names, Maitreya is the World Teacher for all people,
religious or not.
Maitreya’s ‘roving ambassador’ Benjamin Creme travels the world spreading
his message of hope and creating a climate of expectancy for Maitreya’s
emergence. Trained and supervised over many years by his own Master, with
whom he is in constant telepathic contact, Benjamin Creme has access to
up-to-date information on Maitreya’s emergence, giving him the total
conviction needed to present this story to a sceptical world.
As a modern man concerned with today’s problems, Maitreya works behind the
scenes of our changing world. The outpouring of His extraordinary energy has
been the stimulus for dramatic developments on many fronts: the ending of
the cold war; the break-up of the Soviet Union; the unification of Germany;
the ending of apartheid in South Africa; the growing power of the people’s
voice, leading to demands for freedom and justice; and the worldwide focus
on preserving the environment.
Outwardly Maitreya has met with influential leaders from all fields,
informing them of His solutions to our pressing problems. His message can be
summarized as: “Share and save the world.” He has not come to found a new
religion but as an educator in the broadest sense. He will seek to inspire
humanity to see itself as one family, and to create a civilization based on
sharing, economic and social justice, and global co-operation.
For those who seek signs of His coming, Maitreya has manifested miracles
worldwide, touching the hearts of millions and preparing them for His
With Maitreya and His group working openly in the world, offering Their
guidance and teachings, humanity is assured not only of survival but of the
creation of a brilliant new civilization.
According to Benjamin Creme, we do not have long to wait to see Him. Soon,
Maitreya will be interviewed on major US television and His open emergence
Benjamin Creme regularly lectures worldwide, and appears on television and
radio — in the USA alone he has been interviewed on more than 300 radio and
television shows. He is author of ten books — translated into 11 languages —
and is editor of Share International magazine which circulates in 70
countries. He receives no payment for any of this work. Benjamin Creme
offers a positive view of the future — a message of hope for the world.
