Share International Magazine Update – July/August 2019


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “Heretofore, our knowledge of the Soul has come from religious texts. These have left man with the impression that the Soul is distant from himself, something to be recognized and worshipped from afar. As man progresses, however, he comes to understand that the Soul is himself, a higher and purer part of himself, but nevertheless himself. Thus a man progresses, deepening in knowledge of his true being and purpose. All in their own way make such a journey, some swiftly and eagerly, others more slowly and less sure of the path. But all eventually pass through the various gates which mark their progress on the way. Today this journey is trodden by millions who know not that the path exists but nevertheless answer the call of their Soul, and enter thereon. They sense the needs of the time and seek to meet these needs, and so play their part. Knowingly or not they are responding to the call from Maitreya through their Souls to enter the fray, and to replenish this world with their ardour and courage. Their efforts, they will find, have not been in vain.” From: The Path of Ascent, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG.

Share International Magazine Update – June 2019


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “The necessity of change, radical and fundamental, will soon engage the minds of a growing number of statesmen and politicians, eager to add their voices and to put their stamp on the time. Far-reaching though they must be, the changes, it will be realized, must proceed at a pace commensurate with men’s ability to adapt. Naught will be served by a too eager attempt to force the pace of transformation. Radically but logically, step by tested step, must the new foundations be built. On such firm rocks alone can the future stability of society be assured. When Maitreya first announces His plans and hopes for the rehabilitation of the world, His energy of Love — the Sword of Cleavage — will further delineate the divisions which now exist. Men will take sides — for or against the new principles that He will present for the betterment of all. Thus will it be. Thus will a period of discord and discontent precede the acceptance of the new. Not all men, of course, will view the future with equal pleasure. Diehards abound in every field and must be cajoled and humoured into compliance. In time, even those who most oppose will renounce their intransigence and enter the field of labour for the common good. A simpler and a better life awaits the builders of the new time. This is the time of test and choice. When men realize this they will gather round Maitreya and seek willingly His guidance and succour, glad to be of service and to confirm their identity with His aims.” From: Coping with change, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – May 2019


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “In almost every corner of the world communications flourish, and bring the events of each day to the attention of all. Nowhere is it possible to be unaware of the swift and often savage happenings which assault the eyes and ears of billions daily. In a very real sense the world has shrunk to village size and, as in village life, the actions of one affect the lives and interests of all. No longer can any nation stand aside and claim immunity from the results of its misdeeds. Power alone no longer confers this privilege. More and more, the nations are awakening to their mutual dependence and responsibility, and this fact augurs well for the world. Gradually, it is being realized by those who make decisions that time is not on the side of those who despoil and poison the planet, that resources are not unlimited, and that nature recoils from exploitation and assault. There is a growing awareness that careful and concerted action, on a global scale, alone can remedy the many transgressions of the natural order which man’s ignorance and greed has brought about. A start is being made, but many years of dedicated action will be required even to halt the menace of pollution and depredation which threatens man now. Fortunately, not all in the future sounds so dark a note. Man, as ever, is not alone, and steps have been taken to release to him the knowledge of new and cleaner and safer modes of generating power. Technologies altogether new will transform daily living and leave man time and impulse to explore his own Being and purpose.” From: Awakening to responsibility, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – April 2019

For this reason alone, the problems and dangers are magnified and entail the most careful handling by men and Us. Our physical presence among men, albeit in relatively limited numbers as yet, ensures that Our help is forthcoming in larger measure than ever before, and will be equal to the task. Our confidence is bolstered by the fact that Our Great Leader, Maitreya, Himself, is among men. His resources are vast. Behind the scenes as yet, He works ceaselessly to bring peace and progress to the affairs of men, seeking, within the Law, to disentangle the many warring interests, and so create the conditions on which true peace depends. Justice, alone, will bring the peace which men desire, and only when justice reigns will war become a fading memory. In almost every country is Maitreya to be found, creating a network of helpers in every field. Thus does He stitch together the fabric of the new. In every country, groups are forming and demonstrating for a better life for men, calling for an end to war; justice and freedom for all; sharing as the natural and only way to guarantee the future of the race. Have no fear, men are awakening to the call, and will assuredly triumph.” From: A time without precedent, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – March 2019


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “It is with sadness that We watch the continuing efforts of men to solve their problems with the methods of the past… There is but one answer to all their troubles, one solution to all their problems, yet none, so far, has ventured to whisper the word which, at a stroke, would free them and the world. Which, at one stroke, would launch this world into the new era of Righteousness and Truth. Let the word resound, let the word demonstrate the new civilization, the new society. Let the word be heard everywhere; let man respond… The word is Sharing, the key to the future. When men learn to share they will know the meaning of life. When men share they will feel exalted and love what they do. Sharing will make men whole. Sharing will make man One. There is no end to the concept of sharing. It will prove the salvation of men.” From: The key to the future, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – January/February 2019


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “For thousands of years, man has made a steady decline from the spiritual base which once ordered his life. He has forgotten his origin and purpose as the Dark Age clouded his memory and waylaid his heart. Lost in the twin glamours of Matter and Time man is only now awakening from his long dream and illusion. Needless to say, individual men have risen above the herd and fought their way through the fogs of unknowing into a measure of Light. They are the bright stars who have kept faith with their soul’s knowledge and purpose and so act as a beacon for the rest. Through these exceptional men and women, the truth of man’s eternal journey in ever-increasing awareness has been kept alive and fostered in the darkest days. Now, at last, the Brothers may step forward into the light and show Themselves to men. Their Great Leader, Maitreya, stands poised to engage on a journey like none other, one which will bring Him openly, in the full light of day, closer to the hearts and minds of men. Maitreya, Himself, stands in the wings, ready to emerge and to face the ignorance of the time. He has gathered around Him helpers from all the continents, men and women of every race and creed. Together they are ready to do battle with ignorance and greed, selfishness and cruelty, and are certain of victory.” From: A new beginning, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – December 2018


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “We are entering an age in which reason will gradually be replaced by the higher faculty of intuition. That which constitutes the reasoning faculty in man, and of which he is justly proud, will one day drop beneath the threshold of consciousness and become as instinctive as breathing or moving is today. There lies ahead of man an immense increase in awareness through the unfolding of his intuition, an awareness of states of Being as yet altogether unknown to him but which lie ready to be perceived by his awakened mind. All expansions of consciousness are preceded by periods of tension, and this time of conflict and difficulty through which mankind is now passing will be succeeded by one of tranquillity and poise, which will set the stage for the gradual flowering of the intuition. The next step in the flowering of the race will be the advent of those souls in whom the intuitive faculty is already active and potent. Those souls are now being gathered on the inner planes of life and soon will make their appearance. They will constitute the next (6th) sub-race of the present 5th root race and will lead humanity out of the darkness of the limited rational mind into the light of the intuition. …Separateness is unknown when the intuition functions; the Oneness of all things is directly perceived. The illusions of the rational mind are transcended and Reality is known… As the intuition unfolds, so do the separative tendencies of the rationalising mind diminish and a healthier climate for all relationships is the beneficent result… awaken the intuition and dissolve the darkness; awaken the intuition and cast out all fear.” From: Reason and intuition, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – November 2018


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “Among humanity today is a growing number of men and women who are engaged in outlining the principles on which the new civilization will be built. They are to be found in almost every country, and they propagate the teachings which reflect the qualities of the New Age of Aquarius… These are the forerunners, sent ahead to prepare men for the experiences which will characterize the New Age. More and more, men are seen as superfluous in a struggle for existence, mere pawns in a gigantic game of ‘hunt the dollar’. Human trust and social cohesion are nowhere to be seen in this rapacious contest for gain at any cost. Not for much longer can humanity stand the strain of this struggle, in which men are taking their stand, for love or insane greed. Behind the scenes Maitreya and His Group fan the flames of this conflict and gradually, more and more, men are beginning to see their path. With growing will, they voice aloud their need for change, following the precepts of the men and women of vision who are leading the way.” From: The forerunners, by Benjamin Creme’s Master click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – October 2018


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “More and more, the nations are beginning to recognize, to take seriously and to deal with, an age-old problem, namely corruption… In modern times, the large corporations of the West have been found guilty of ‘cooking the books’ on a massive scale, while in the East it is taken for granted that every transaction needs the ‘greasing’ of someone’s palm. Corruption is endemic, and runs through some societies from the president or prime minister to the police and sport. Electoral corruption is rampant, as recent elections have demonstrated, even in countries supposedly dedicated to freedom and democracy. Such corrupt governments fail and betray their peoples and so surrender their right to govern. To help men to do this, you may be sure that Maitreya will be at pains to demonstrate to men the eroding effect of corruption in all its many manifestations. He will show that if men would become the Gods they essentially are, they must abandon the old ways of deceit and subterfuge. To tackle the serious environmental problems, He will explain, men must work together, in trust. Without trust, Maitreya will emphasize, little can be done. Maitreya will show that men have but one choice to create the necessary trust: to share the produce of this bounteous Earth more evenly across the world, and so end for ever the starvation and poverty of millions, dying in the midst of plenty. World public opinion will find its voice and its Mentor, and against its power the obstructive voices of the greedy dictators and corrupt politicians will fade. So will it be, and so will begin the cleansing and transformation of this world.” From: The end of corruption, by Benjamin Creme’s Master click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.

Share International Magazine Update – September 2018


The latest abridged and online version of Share International magazine can be viewed by clicking here. “At the present time, the Masters are gathering Their forces for the onslaught on tyranny and greed, exploitation and want. They know that not all men are ready for the changes which must ensue but they know, too, that most men, by far, desire a new dimension of life, and are ready for the deeds and sacrifices which will bring it into being. They will not be slow to respond to the counsel of the Great Ones. Make ready to see Them and to answer Their call. Make ready to act and to aid Them in Their task. Make ready, too, for the stream of new light, new life and new knowledge which will flow from Them into the world. Thus will all be changed. Thus will the old be swept away and a new era begin. Thus will the Teachers revitalize men’s lives and create the conditions for the emergence of a new man. The new man will demonstrate his allegiance to the truth that humanity is One, held together by the force of Love Itself; by his tolerance and harmlessness, his correct relation to all the kingdoms. The new man will be known by his capacity for right action, intuitively understood; by his ability to interpret rightly the Will of God. Thus will gradually emerge the God Who sits within the heart of all men, potential, waiting to be called into manifestation by the actions of man himself. The key to this development lies in a growing working relationship between the Masters and men. From this will grow a bond so deep that naught can sever it, creating thus a channel for the gifts of wisdom, love and knowledge which are the Masters’ to bestow. Their divinity will call forth the divine in man, and men will discover they have been, forever, Gods.” From: The Knowers return, by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme click here for more A hard copy of Share International magazine is freely donated on a monthly basis to the Central Library (Reference Library), George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EG and to the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh, EH1 2JN.
