a short introduction to a big solution
The author, Benjamin Creme, is a British painter who in the mid-1970s embarked on an extraordinary mission, announcing to a cynical world the imminent return of the Christ. His first book earned him worldwide attention and a guest appearance in the Merv Griffin show. Since then, Creme has produced a dozen volumes ranging from philosophical discourses to political and social reform agendas. His main topic in over 4000 pages has never changed, however. A teacher for all humanity is slowly but steadily emerging to help us tackle problems that by now have reached lethal magnitude. Bound by law not to infringe human free will, he may openly present himself only after the general public has been exposed to his ideas. Unlike religious saviors and political demagogues, this teacher has clear proposals for the regeneration of the planet. If we accept that humanity is one species, then its survival depends on safeguarding living conditions for all its members. This can reasonably be achieved through a balanced distribution of world resources. By adopting sharing in vital sectors of world economy (basic food, health care, and educational needs) we establish trust and the resulting goodwill makes all things possible, including the elimination of war. Needless to say, these ideas are anathema to oligarchs and fundamentalists around the globe. In fact, the delayed public appearance of the world teacher has much to do with their efforts to discredit Creme and distort his message. The evidence continues to grow in his favor, however. Photographs, accurate predictions of events, independent testimonies, and a global wave of miracles, all suggest there is a kernel of truth in Creme¿s story. Another source of trust in this material is the author¿s independence from vested interests and ideologies. He is thus free from peer pressure, the imperative of convincing readers, and the anxiety of selling fast. His conversational prose exposes the core of our modern problems with disarming honesty and radiant insight. And his description of the world teacher¿s ideas and transformative presence among us is warm and uplifting, to say the least. I recommend this book as a short discourse on the most urgent problem of our times: our collective survival.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Call To Change
One of the remarkable aspects of this book is the fact that so much is contained in so little. The 132 pages gives the reader much to ponder on relating to the many problems facing humanity. In a very simple, direct and objective way, author Benjamin Creme lays bare the urgent need for human beings to change direction and move from a competitive based society and culture to one of co-operation. Competition and the destructive seeds of seperation permeates every aspect of human relationship - politically, socially, economically, religiously, with the familiar effects of war, poverty, ill-health and environmental destruction. What was particularily uplifting about this book was the steadfast view that humanity can change direction and if the initial steps are taken then - as always - providence will act to support and invigorate this descion. In this case providence isn't some vague notion, Mr.Creme speaks of a group of enlightened teachers who have stood behind humanity since its earliest days and have always sought to inspire, aid and assist. Now this group is emerging from their ancient retreats to walk again among men and to once again assist humanity through the point of crisis and danger we now face. I found this book to be a practical blue print for effective spiritual living in a world that is confused and conflicted.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
