That would bring us into reality. That is one of the factors that He is waiting for, that sense of reality which it would bring about. We would see that it does not work. We thought it was working, it seemed to work for some 56 of us, but through our complacency we did not even think of those for whom it does not work. One of Maitreya’s major tasks is to throw cold water on this complacency, make it very uncomfortable to be complacent. I can remember people coming to a meeting of mine and saying: “I thought this was going to be a message of hope, but I feel awful.
They are just pawns, barely existing as human beings, exploited and poor in every sense of the word. Poor in experience, poor in a material sense. Maitreya “seeks to invest each individual life with sanctity and worth”. To bring each person to the experience that he or she is a soul in incarnation, that they count, that every soul counts, that there is not a soul separate from any other soul. That everyone, whatever their condition now, should have, and will have, an equal right to education, food, shelter, healthcare, and the fulfilment of their full potential as living souls.
I said: “Jolly good. ” You have to cut through that complacency. If people only want to be, “Ah, lovely”, it is not going to change the world. It is important that they know that the Christ is in the world and not alone, and that the world is ready for change and will change. But if they only want to be made to feel good, it is not going to help the world because they are not the people who are actually working in the world. Q. Is Maitreya still waiting for the stock-market collapse? A.
