    A brilliant introduction on a basic level for those who are unsure of esoteric happenings. explained in a simple and clear way. The emergence of incredible beings who are able to appear and disappear at will, create what we call miracles, but which are simply manipulations of divine energy.....what is really unfolding in our chaotic world is wonderful. How there is an astounding being who is being called the World teacher....who has come to guide us through this dangerous time in our history of the planet. So inspiring.

    A time for decision. What choice will we make?

    Although it may be hard for some to imagine, I believe that there is help of an extraordinary kind in our midst. Our world is in crisis. We have a choice to make. Will we continue on the path of destruction? or will we come to our senses and save our world? This book makes it clear to the newcomer - as well as reinforces the information for those who are already aquainted with the emergence of Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom - that we have an urgent choice to make. Benjamin Creme has a straightforward, no-nonsense approach and he tells it like is. It is up to US to save our world. We will however, have help in that monumental task. It's difficult to comprehend at first, for some perhaps, that there are such men of extraordinary conciousness and ability in our world - who have not lived among ordinary humanity in 98,000 years. 98,000 years is an extraordinary amount of time if we consider that it was only 2000 years ago that Jesus walked among us spreading the word of the Christ. It's also incredible that this time the Christ himself has decided to return - not alone - but with a group who hold the Plan that we so greatly need. I think the key to understanding this information is to keep an open mind and consider the alternatives. If one approaches the subject matter with an open mind and an open heart many things may become apparent in an electrifying manner. It is not only a message of hope - it is a true inspiration of the potential that we have to recreate our world and live in peace and true joy - a great alternative to war and stress.

    'Take your brother's need as the measure for your action and solve the problems of the world.'

    In the long wake of New York¿s terror, few things could preserve my faith in humanity better than Benjamin Creme¿s new book. Affirming once more his title of ¿messanger of hope,¿ Creme presents with clarity, candor, common sense and conviction the ¿New Light and Life¿ for humanity in the years ahead. One may ask, yet: Is there any future at all for humanity after September 11? Contrary to fear and disbelief, and against the recent tide of pessimism about human affairs, the answer is an emphatic yes. And it is so, because no isolated action can reverse the ¿Great Approach,¿ the subject of Creme¿s book. A momentous, unprecedented event is unfolding below the threshold of media coverage: the coming together of the spiritual and the human kingdoms. As a result of this process, new and potent energies overflow the planet and condition human life in all its aspects. So powerful indeed these energies are that, if directed to evil schemes, they can produce devastating misery. We cannot get rid of them; only turn them into constructive purposes. To help us in this task, a group of spiritual educators are coming to the fore. Their vast knowledge of the law of causality and their radiant, unconditional love make them uniquely equipped to help humanity out of the present confusion. That is Creme¿s story, and as a story we may accept it or not. But Creme is more than a story teller. Profoundly concerned with the explosive social problems and the moral failings of our age, he issues a call for action: Let us put our house in order. Let us manifest the best within us by addressing the problems of the world. Eliminating hunger, distributing more equitably the planet¿s resources, educating all children and tending to the ill and the needy, is how we can establish peace, diffuse tensions, and disarm the hands of terror. Creme gets even more specific when he recommends the Brandt Commission Report as a starting point for reconstructing our ailing world. In light of this urgent call, we may want to see the New York tragedy as a pivotal point for readjusting our values and worldview. Starvation produces no less a violent death than any terrorist attack. Institutional poverty condemns children as much as the deprivation of a loved parent buried under the World Trade Center. And environmental pollution is, should we but realize it, an ongoing biological war against our planet. World service, according to Creme, is the most effective way to manipulate the new energies of ¿The Great Approach¿ and restore our humanity to its true nature. Service to the world is also, I would add, the proper reaction to evil and the definite answer to terrorism. If you are searching for a book to start the new century on a realistic yet inspiring note, you might want to consider ¿The Great Approach¿ first.
