The future role of the United Nations by Bette Stockbauer Number 3 in a series of columns about Maitreya and the changing of the age. How the UN will help implement the idea of sharing. This column seeks to convey the ideas of Maitreya, a Spiritual Teacher who lives in London.
An ideal future would see the light of divinity shining equally through all. In our time, Maitreya is focusing on the political and economic fields, where he inspires world leaders to implement policies that will lead to an equitable distribution of planetary resources. Maitreya says, "When you share, you recognise God in your brother.
This is a truth, simple, but until now difficult for man to grasp. The time has come to evidence this truth. It is a physical as well as a spiritual truth that all of creation is connected at its most essential atomic level. Because all life has its origin in the very dust of the planet earth, we are quite literally the sisters and brothers of one great mother.
Maitreya is urging us, at this crucial turning point in our planetary existence, to acknowledge and act upon this fact.
If we can understand ourselves in this way, then when we see the faces of starvation that populate our world, we will know that we are, in a literal sense, watching our own family suffer and die.
When we read the cruelties of oppression and torture that fill our newspapers, we will begin to see that those victims are our very siblings. To find a way out of the present morass and into the shining new world that Maitreya envisions, we must begin again at the very basics. The first step will be to insure every citizen of the earth the simple necessities of life--food, housing, health care and education.
To achieve this action we must transform the political and economic institutions which hamper its manifestation.
That is the difficulty, for often we lack not in vision or willingness but only in clarity of implementation. Maitreya and his group of spiritual co-workers have designed a plan that is brilliant in its simplicity and insight.
They visualize a world organization, administered by the United Nations, which will completely restructure our economic systems. Instead of the present system of domination by market forces which has led to the complete polarization of wealth, we will see an equitable distribution of planetary resources.
Instead of a world in which the richest societies blindly ignore the total degradation of countless millions, we will see the greatest solicitude for human suffering. We will return to a more fundamental economic system based on barter.
If one country has an excess of a certain product, then it will be matched with a country in need of the same item.determine the future of the UN and, by that same reason, the future of the handling of international conflicts.
Therefore, we owe it not only to ourselves, and our asian allies, to operate under the demands of the UN, but we owe it to the rest of the world as well.
