From a profound understanding of the priorities as set out by Maitreya the World Teacher, and his heartfelt response, the founder of Share The World's Resources delves deep into the implications of securing the human rights as established in Article 25 of the UN's Universal Declaration, and what it will take if humanity is to achieve its implementation.
"...man is Life and every atom within the universe is inextricably connected, which is a basic postulate that has profound implications for societal arrangements and human relationships once we thoroughly apprehend and accept its validity" (p.59).
So, once Article 25 begins to be implemented, Mr Mesbahi writes, "a strange phenomenon will take place in the minds of men and women with a previously unknown quality that stems from awareness of the other, a newfound respect and trust, and of course the energy that we call love" (p.93).
Article 25.1, whose text has been included in the colophon of Share International magazine since its very first issue in 1982, extends explicit protection from economic oppression to every man, woman and child: "Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control."
As such, Article 25.1 invalidates the distinction made by politicians right and left between "real refugees" and "economic migrants" (aka "fortune seekers"), and instead throws a piercing light on the need to create a new economic international order based on justice and freedom.
