Желание слышать истину является как процессом, так и результатом подготовки. Развитие способности слышать и желание услышать даст тебе то, что ты ищешь. Истина тебе крайне полезна, однако поначалу она может оказаться шокирующей и способна разрушать созданные тобой планы и замысли. Ты должна идти на этот риск, если ты хочешь определённости и вдохновения, которые истина несёт собой. Истина всегда несёт в себе разрешение конфликта, всегда позволяет ощутить себя, всегда даёт ощущение существующей реальности и всегда подсказывает твой следующий шаг, чтобы ты смогла двигаться вперёд.
Сегодня в течение трёх 15-ти минутных практических занятий прислушайся к истине, попытайся услышать за пределами твоего ума и эмоций. Не переживай, если ты услышишь всего лишь шум своих собственных мыслей. Запомни, ты развиваешь прислушивание. Это самое главное. Как развитие мышц тела, ты развиваешь способность ума, которая называется прислушивание. Поэтому сегодня практикуй прислушивание, используя эти занятия для того, чтобы посвятить себя им, для того, чтобы почувствовать возникновение истины внутри себя.
Практика 17: Три практических занятия по 15 минут каждое.

Шаг 17 “Сегодня я хочу услышать истину” уверяет меня, что истина – вещь полезная, она полностью на моей стороне. Однако, в тексте Шага и есть оговорка о том, что эта истина может быть шокирующей и может разрушить мои планы и замыслы. Я готова испытывать шок, хотя никакого шока я пока не испытываю. Я даже готова к тому, чтобы разрушались мои планы и замысли, хотя пока ничего не разрушалось. Это значит, что я не слышу истину, что ли?
Но я не падаю духом, ведь дальше в тексте говорится: “Развивая способность слышать и желание слышать, ты приобретешь то, чего ты ищешь”. Я ищу истину и готова принять её в любой форме. Кто-то наверно скажет, что это заявление несколько самонадеянное. Может быть, но я готова пойти на риск.
Я помню, как будучи студенткой в университете, я открыла для себя Фридриха Ницше и очень увлекалась им.
Может быть он говорил следующее, а может быть и нет, не важно, эта цитата всё-таки блестяще подходит к этому Шагу: «Иногда люди не хотят слышать правду, потому что они не хотят разрушить свои иллюзии».
Я хочу услышать истину
Я хочу услышать истину, я не боюсь того, что мои иллюзии будут разрушены.
В моих записях по этому шагу я написала: я чувствую, что готова рисковать и готова слышать истину, которая отличается от моих предубежденных соображений. Я глубоко убеждена, что какова бы ни была истина, она скорее всего не ущербной, а только полезной.
В тот день, когда я занималась этим шагом, слова песни Роллинг Стоунз сразу пришли в голову: ты не всегда можешь получить того, что хочешь, но если постараться ты можешь получить как раз то, в чем нуждаешься.
Я хочу услышать истину, для меня это является постоянной нуждой.
За пределами твоего ума находится Знание, истинная суть твоего бытия, твоё Истинное «Я», не «Я», которое ты создал сам, чтобы существовать в мире, а твоё Истинное «Я». От этого Истинного «Я» возникают мысли и представления, склонности и направление. Большинство того, что твоё Истинное «Я» пытается тебе передать, ты пока ещё не в состоянии услышать. Но со временем ты сможешь этому научиться по мере того, как твой ум успокоится, и ты достигнешь нужного уровня прислушивания и проницательности.
Сегодня выполни три практических занятия по 15 минут каждое. Попытайся прислушаться с большей внимательностью. Обрати внимание на более глубокие побуждения. Ты должен слушать без осуждения. Не пытайся что-либо корректировать. Ты должен слушать очень внимательно, чтобы научиться слышать.
Практика 16: три практических занятия по 15 мин каждое.
Разъяснительное замечание–перевод Шагов к Знанию на русский язык находится на начальной стадии. Тот перевод, который вы тут читайте, является первой попыткой передавать смысл Шагов на русском языке.
За пределами моего ума
Когда я впервые сделала Шаг 16 (10 ноября 2012 г.), я обратила внимание на одну мысль, которая как будто звучала из глубин моего ума – “истинная суть твоей души, чиста, незапятнанна”.
Шаг 16 гласит, что “за пределами моего ума находится Знание”. За пределами моего ума также находится истинная суть моей души, себя истинного. Где находится это место, которое за пределами моего ума? Каковы его качества? Обширное пространство бесконечных возможностей открывается.
Однако, пожалуй, прислушивание играет значительную роль тут. Я должна слушать более внимательно, чем потребовалось вчера, когда я занималась Шагом 15. Мне следует прислушаться к более глубоким склонностям души. Меня советуют снова слушать без суждения. Итак, я должна слушать глубоко так, чтобы я могла учиться слышать. Для этого, мне необходимо войти в состояние внутреннего безмолвия и доводить навык прислушивания до высокого уровня изысканности и проницательности.
Это умение слышать и способность внимательно слушать требуют применения некоторых усилий. Я это понимаю, как внутреннее прислушивание, прислушиваясь к репликам, подсказкам и направлению души, которые идут из внутри, а не из внешних источников.
Я представляю это место за пределами моего ума, как обширная темная пустота. Знание проживает там. Знание – светлое и яркое, поэтому оно освещает и озаряет это темное пространство.
On the final day of the 2017 Messenger’s Vigil, we explore what it means to walk with the Messenger. What began as a small group of dedicated people has now burgeoned into a worldwide endeavor. There are people now walking with the Messenger all over the world, which means the sun never sets on this great cause. This is fortunate, since there are millions of people in the world waiting for the New Message.
The following passages illustrate this.
“So the Messenger can reach many more people in a very short period of time, which is necessary given the great crises on the horizon, but at the same time the resistance and the rejection can be overwhelming. It took centuries for religions to gain recognition beyond their point of origin in the world, spread very slowly because communication was very slow. Travel and transportation were very slow. Now God’s Revelation can be read by someone on the other side of the world with the click of a button.”
“The Messenger is facing a very hazardous journey ahead, for there will be much resistance to the New Revelation, as there has always been great resistance in the past to God’s Revelations in the world, whenever and wherever they were given.”
“The Messenger is facing a monumental task. He alone cannot bring the Revelation into the world. It will require the participation, the contribution and the communication of many others who can assist him in this way.”
How will you participate, contribute and communicate?
Walking with the Messenger
Reed says, “The door is open, and anyone who wants to can be a part of this. You get strong by doing difficult things and making important decisions. Everyone has this capability, and the New Message is providing the opportunity to do this.”
And he shares some more passages from God’s Ne Revelation.
“It is God’s Plan to keep Knowledge alive in this world in enough individuals to guide humanity through the dangerous events to come. God’s plan is to ignite Knowledge in enough people here in the world through God’s New Revelation for the world, to steer humanity in a positive direction and to keep Knowledge alive here.”
“God redeems you by giving you something important to do, something greater than your personal preoccupations, fears and concerns. This is how your value is restored to you. This is how your gift is discovered. And this is how your existence in the world is justified and blessed.”
We get stronger as we go. We find courage by taking on the things that demand courage. When engaging in service, it is important to know what the situation needs, not what you want to give. If you feel the need to give, do not control what it is you give, be open to giving what is needed.
How will you build strength and resilience?
Walking with the Messenger
The following are the things we must do.
Roadmap – The Way Forward
Continue to build and stabilize our pillars.
Continue doing the inner freedom work.
Practice Steps to Knowledge and those parts of the New Message that call to us.
Help the Society through advocacy and volunteering.
Financially support the New Message.
Share the New Message with new people.
Share the Greater Community reality with new people.
Help keep Knowledge alive in the world through our daily expression, practice and interactions.
We have many steps ahead of us. We just need to keep our eye on the next step.
Honor the importance of time—make sure your time is well spent.
Follow the internal indicator—Knowledge—push/pull, go/stop.
Everyone’s time frame is unique to them.
Don’t take cues from one another, and respond to this feeling of the necessity of time within ourselves.
“Everyone who can receive the Revelation, in humility and honesty, will be walking with the Messenger. In some degree, either great or small, they will be doing what he is doing. They will be following the pathway that he is blazing for everyone.
“Any true student will do this naturally because they are following Knowledge, and they are taking the Steps to Knowledge, and they are building a strong foundation for their greater and future life through the Four Pillars of development—the Pillar of Relationships, the Pillar of Work and Providership, the Pillar of Health and the Pillar of Spiritual Development.
“To walk with the Messenger is to understand the Revelation as it is pertaining to your own life and to the lives of those whom you will influence.”
Listen to all fourteen minutes shared, beginning at the 1.04.00 mark.
Walking with the Messenger
As for me, I say to the Messenger, I may not be walking right beside you, but I am walking with you in another part of the world. You said at the Chat this past Saturday (October 1, 2016), “I think of Jesus here and how few really knew him or his real mission at his time, only to have his identity reconstructed later on by others for their own purposes.” I have always felt there would be another Coming in my lifetime, not Jesus in person, but a phenomenon of the same ilk.
However, it still holds true that few really know you or your real mission at this time, but we now live in a different world, a world of fantastic information-spreading resources, and you are now making your public appearance. People are still likely to miscontrue and misinterpret your identity while you are here, but I pray that they will not reconstruct it for personal purposes in the future. For the New Message will remain in its pure and unsullied form, thanks to your unfailing effort, down through the eons of time.
Walking with The Messenger
Marshall ends the broadcast with a prayer.
“My prayer is that you will walk with me, that you will follow this invisible light with me, not because you only believe in me, but because the spirit within you guides you to do this. I pray that you will help me bring this into the world, that is my effort. I pray that you will help me find those people who are searching for this even at this moment. For they will not find resolution without this, and they suffer without it as you have suffered without it.
“I pray that you will help me bring God’s Revelation about life in the universe into the world, help me prepare and warn humanity about the great challenge that is coming as we emerge into this great and fantastic arena of life. The preparation has been given. I am burdened with it. It must pass from me to others. I pray you will help me in my effort. I pray that you will help me bring the awareness and preparation for the new world that we are facing, for there is no escape from this. I pray that you will see this.
“I pray that you will help me keep Knowledge alive in the world by keeping Knowledge alive in yourself and in others, to hold that fire. In the face of all adversity, and doubt, and repudiation, tragedy and error that you and I might face, you must hold that fire, hold fast to it. I pray that you will help me keep this Knowledge alive. I pray that you will walk me in the unchartered territory ahead. This is my prayer for you. It is my prayer for them. They know I cannot carry this alone. Nasi Novare Coram.
Understanding the Great Coordination is vital to our participation and preparation.
On Day Five of the 2017 Messenger’s Vigil, we explore the Great Coordination and entering the reality of the Great Coordination. We try to come to a deeper understanding of the Great Coordination.
Patricia says that this Great Coordination is what God, the Angelic Assembly and the Messenger are all about; the elements of the Great Coordination are what the Society is all about, it is what we as a worldwide community are all about. And we are now witnessing and seeing evidence of the Great Coordination that has been going on since Marshall began performing the momentous task he was sent here to do of receiving and bringing to the world the New Message from God.
“The Great Coordination is something you must prepare for.” The Great Coordination
So the focus of this broadcast is “What does it mean to participate in and prepare for the Great Coordination?”
“Beyond what your senses can report, what your eyes can see and your ears can hear, there is a Greater Coordination in the world and in the universe at large—a Great Coordination, the Work of God in the universe, working through layers of service and representatives.
“It is something you must feel, deeply, this Presence, and this abiding sense that your life is really for something greater than what you have become accustomed to and what your culture promotes within you and what you have come to believe…a Greater Coordination that has brought you into the world for a higher purpose, a Greater Coordination that you cannot define and you can never fully understand…
“Hear Our words. Listen to them again and again. Comprehension will come in time with repetition.
“Your heart will know if you can follow this. Deep within you there are greater powers and forces at work. This is what you must discover. This is the great challenge and meaning of your life.”
Understanding the Great Coordination
And Reed urges us to remember that “This is not about you.”
“People…are functioning from a position of Separation, where they think everything is about them. They do not realize that their revelation is a coordination with other minds, with great events and with Spiritual Power in the universe. They do not realize the degree to which they themselves must prepare and how the time and the place and the people they are associated with are critically important.” The Threshold of Personal Revelation.
Next, Marshall speaks to us, helping us in our understanding of the Great Coordination. He tells us that this revelation is the completion of another revelation given on July 20, 2015 called The Great Alliance. In this context, alliance infers intrinsic relationship, it is inherent within us, but we have to choose it. But Coordination has to do with action. It is bringing together different individuals, different levels of reality in different places to serve a greater purpose, or to continue a purpose that has been going on since the beginning of time. A timeless purpose.
We need to participate, trust, then understand. In that order.
And another thing, we cannot use the Coordination for personal edification, because then it will escape us. We need to be reliable, dependable, and consistent, not easily pulled away and wishy-washy. We are asked to lay the foundation without understanding what will come of it. The understanding will come later.
Understanding the Great Coordination
Is this trustworthy? You can only participate to find out.
We have to be certain about what we are doing, but uncertain about what is guiding us and where we are going. This is called living an open life, which means accepting the mystery and going deeper into it.
Our world holds a lot of promise and potential, which is why it is drawing the attention of the Angelic Assembly. It is drawing a lot of force.
To have another free world in the universe is a very important thing in the larger scheme of things.
We are being given the opportunity to work for this. Let us not fail. Against all odds, we do it anyway.
Marshall says that if this can take place in a short enough time, great things can happen.
And he finishes with a prayer.
“Let us pray that the Presence will be with us and that we will find the strength and determination to be with it. For it seeks to move our lives into position for a greater service in the world, a greater meaning and a greater purpose. And with it, it brings us relationships of a very high caliber, relationships that can amplify our strength, our power and our contribution. I pray that this strength will grow from this gathering and from those who gather with me from afar, for we are all part of this Great Coordination. May the Presence of the Teachers be with us. Nasi Novare Coram.”
The New Message says that the Messenger brings into the world a new world reality, a new reality of awareness and understanding and experience.
In the mid-1980s, Marshall Vian Summers received one of the very first messages about the new world from the Angelic Assembly. Reed and Patricia share some excerpts. They come from a discourse called World Evolution found in Wisdom I from the Greater Community.
“Your generation is preparing for a new world order. It is not an easy age to live in because the old structures are falling away or disintegrating rapidly, and there does not appear to be anything to take their place that seems consistent and reliable.
“As this past age has heralded the age to come, so the age to come will herald the age to follow, as if each is a stepping stone that opens up as humanity begins to take the next forward step. This is not a great ending or a great beginning but a continuation.
“The change that must be forged in the next century and indeed in the centuries to come is that the world must unite into one community.
“There are three factors that will generate the forging of a world community. The first factor is that this is the stage in history where your world emerges into the Greater Community of Worlds, which it is destined to do, both from its own explorations and from the timely visits of many cultures from beyond.
“The second factor is that your environment will deteriorate to a very great degree, bringing about international crisis. This will require cooperation and will require citizens everywhere to become actively engaged in the maintenance—indeed, even the rescue—of your planet.
“The third factor is the integration of world economy. These three factors more than anything will bring about a world community.”
Twenty-five years later, in 2011, a new revelation called “Entering the New World” was revealed through the Messenger. It says:
“Now you are in a new world—a world unlike the world you are accustomed to, a world with a changing and different climate, a world with diminishing resources, a world of polluted and contaminated rivers and soils, a world where ever growing numbers of people will be drinking from a slowly shrinking well.”
Entering the New World
Next we listen to the Voice speaking part of this revelation to us.
And the Voice tells us like it is. No embellishments, no painting a rosy picture, but the stark and naked truth. What will you do? How will you prepare for the Great Waves of change now descending on our planet? What will you do to survive in the new world and not become a victim of this new world? How will you make the transition?
These are questions we must all ask ourselves. As I see it, we cannot be messing around thinking this is all a game and seeking our own personal happiness. If we do not prepare now, we will literally find ourselves up the creek without a paddle. We are not here to seek happiness, but I am convinced that we will find happiness as we carry out the task we were sent here to do. It is no accident that we are here at this monumental time in our world’s history. This is a great opportunity. We should realize how very fortunate we are to be living at this time of revelation, living in a new world that calls for our action and service.
Marshall speaks and urges us to rise above shock and fear. He calls on us to align ourselves with Knowledge, because Knowledge is not afraid. We can no longer retreat into our safe place and pretend that nothing is happening.
He likens this to jumping into a cold icy lake at ten thousand feet to clear our heads. I can relate to this in my own life. Instead of staying in my cosy warm bed in the morning, I rise and go out into the snowy world. A sense of urgency overcomes my reluctance. This is something I must do, for there is work to be done. A snow bath clears my head and prepares me for the work to be done each day.
Entering the New World
The New Message tells us that we have a window of opportunity, around ten years, and it provides us with the tools to prepare. It brings us to Knowledge within ourselves, that potent intelligence God has placed within us to guide us. Many solutions are needed, but one of them can be called the Knowledge Solution. There are people are staffing all kinds of solutions around the world, but who is staffing the Knowledge Solution?
Patricia says: “In order to serve the world, you must love people, you must be with people, you must listen to people. Not just your friends, not just in one social strata of your culture, but listen to people, to see their suffering, to see their ignorance, to see their true needs, to see that people are really trying to do the best with what they have. To serve, you must love people.”
What role will men and women of Knowledge play as we make this transition? What contribution can we make, how much strength can we bring?
Next we listen to part of a revelation called The Vision, received on January 27, 2013.
“Humanity has the seeds of greatness, despite its errors, its ignorance and its corruption. Spirituality is still alive in this world, where it has died and been forgotten in so many others. The fire of love is still burning here, in the minds and hearts of many, many people, a fire that has grown cold in so many other worlds in the universe around you. Humanity knows not of its greater promise, and greater potential, for it struggles with the very forces that have destroyed the power of love and Knowledge in other worlds, the very forces of greed and expediency, corruption, war and depravation.”
The Messenger’s Vigil – Living the Way of Knowledge
On Day Four of the Messenger’s Vigil 2017, Marshall invites us to explore what it means to live the Way of Knowledge. And the second great cornerstone of the New Message is the Way of Knowledge–the preparation for our emergence into the Greater Community and one of the purest first threads woven into this fabric by the Source community through the Messenger.
We are invited to consider the following during this day of the Vigil:
“This method is given to all students of Knowledge in the world with gratitude and high expectation from your Spiritual Family. Follow the instructions as they are given. In this way, the power and efficacy of this work will be revealed to you and, therefore, our gift to you will have been given. It is with great excitement that We bestow this upon you and, through you, upon your world.”
Living the Way of Knowledge
What is needed to live the Way of Knowledge and to eventually become a man or woman of Knowledge?
The answer lies in building our strength and resilience.
A revelation called “Building Strength and Resilience” opens the doors to the preparation required for living the Way of Knowledge.
We listen to the Voice of Revelation, which says, in part:
“When you reach that point in your life when you begin to seriously think that you might have a greater purpose in being here—a recognition that is certainly waiting for you and has been waiting for you for a very long time—when you begin to think of this, you must consider the issue of strength. People assume they are ready for things they are not ready for. They assume, if given the opportunity, if given the encouragement, that they could undertake a more important set of tasks in their life.
“But the truth is they do not have the strength, and they do not yet have the capacity…
“The Angelic Presence needs to know that you have the courage and the stamina to do what will be required. Before they reveal to you anything really important, they want to see if you can sustain the effort, if you can be responsible enough, if you can correct your damaging self-tendencies, if you can be consistent, and if you can be strong.”
Personally, I find this Voice gentle and comforting, with a hint of humor, on the one hand, but with a sense of “no nonsense,” on the other. This is a call to action.
And Marshall chose this revelation because we are ready for this, it is time. It is time to move, time to take action, time to stop wasting our lives on unnecessary and foolish things.
Living the Way of Preparation
However, preparation comes before the journey.
You prepare by taking stock of your life and taking your cues at the level of the heart. For life can be lived in two ways, either at the surface, or at the level of the heart. At the surface, life is idealized, but at the level of the heart, life is experienced. At the surface, things are believed, but at the level of the heart, things are known. At the heart of life, you bring yourself into direct contact with the essence of life as it stirs within you and as it moves and guides you within the world to accomplish your specific task here. (Taken from the Introduction to Living the Way of Knowledge.)
“Whatever you establish in your life is only as strong as the foundation underneath it. Once your foundation in life becomes strong, then great things can be built upon it.” Living the Way of Knowledge, Chapter Two: The Four Pillars of Life.
And you move to the place you need to be, with the people you need to be with, and fulfill the purpose you are meant to fulfill.
Living the Way of Service
Marshall said: “When you finally get to the place, people and purpose, you face a different kind of set of challenges of how you are going hold it all in balance. You have to have much more control of your life, much more awareness in the moment, you have a lot of things to sustain, you have to be very present, you have to be looking over the horizon, and you also have to know where you’ve been. So now you have a symphony of things you are doing, because that’s what it means to live an inspired and determined life.
“You become much more certain about what you are doing, but there is always the uncertainty about who is directing you and where you are going. This is where certainty needs to happen, but uncertainty needs to be allowed.
“The Angelic Presence did the work to bring this to you, now you must do the work to receive it, embody it, and give it to others. That’s the work in a nutshell.”
Marshall ended the broadcast with a prayer:
“Let us take this time to honor the gracious Presence that abides with us, when we gather particularly.
“It wants us to be successful, it knows what that means.
“It wants to encourage us, but not overwhelm us, it knows what that means.
“It wants us to be faithful, but not slavish, it knows what that means.
“May the Presence teach us so that we may embody it too, and learn of it as all that is not real within us falls away, piece by piece, bit by bit, for it knows what that means.”
The Messenger’s Vigil – Coming of the Greater Community
Day Three of the Messenger’s Vigil takes us into a deeper understanding of the Greater Community and our relationship with it.
Marshall Vian Summers is also known as the Messenger for the Greater Community since one of his tasks is to help prepare humanity for its emergence into the Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe. And the Greater Community is one of the major corridors in the teachings of the New Message from God.
There are several Steps in Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing that speak directly to the Greater Community. Here are some of them. Step 187. I am a Citizen of the Greater Community of Worlds. Step 190. The World is Emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds and That Is Why I Have Come. Step 199. The World I See Is Emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds.
These are powerful Steps that begin to open our minds to the reality of the Greater Community and prompt us to explore our connection with it.
Coming of the Greater Community
Patricia draws our attention to the fact that the term “Greater Community” has a special quality about it, a secret ingredient. It takes us deeper than our superficial idea of the world. It activates a sense of memory and has the power to reconnect us to our core identity.
Reed and Patricia share some excerpts from the the New Message books about the Greater Community. These are some of the earliest chapters ever given in the New Message. We are asked to try and feel the mystery of these passages, and sense how they truly are a communication from beyond.
“Life is requiring a greater evolution for humanity at this time. Your own life is moving quickly because life in general is moving quickly… The coming of the Greater Community is the great threshold for humanity. You must prepare. The world needs a new awareness, a new approach and a new foundation for society. You must prepare. Greater Community Spirituality, Chapter 18. What is Human Destiny
“Humanity, unknowingly, is part of a greater association of worlds.”
“This world, this planet, is undergoing the transition to emerge into the Greater Community of worlds. This is its evolutionary stage and its place in history.”
“To undergo this emergence, your world has had to accelerate technologically and experience a collapse in its tribal cultures and civilizations. We are speaking of nations that are being forged into one another, for when a world undergoes the transition into the Greater Community, out of necessity it must unify its own people.” Wisdom I. Chapter 3. The Greater Community.
Coming of the Greater Community
Patricia goes on to share with us the “whole world quality” she feels is characteristic of the people of the Worldwide Community, this fledgling community of New Message responders. We are moved by what is going on across the other side of the world. We have a more expansive vision of the world and its people.
“Many of you have felt strangely moved emotionally in these recent times. You may think it is your own personal development, but that cannot account for everything. You say to yourself, ‘Something is happening, but I don’t know what it is. I can feel it. I know something is about to happen, but I don’t know what it is.”
“People who have this background have a major contribution to make to the world’s emergence into the Greater Community. It is their Heritage they must contribute, not only their ideas. Yet until they find this, they will be profoundly alienated, and they will have great difficulty with their own temperament and nature, which in many ways seem incompatible with this world.” Wisdom I, Chapter 3. The Greater Community.
So how do you feel? Do you feel your connection with the Greater Community? Are you even willing to embrace this idea? Are you drawn to the mystery and want to know more? Do you need the support of likeminded people before you will venture on this journey?
Patricia urges us to “do it anyway.” There is a “do it anyway” imperative about the Greater Community. If you are not sure, if you need more self-determination, more courage, more freedom, more honesty, more integrity, do it anyway. It doesn’t matter what others are doing, if you feel called, do it anyway.
На этой неделе, с 22 по 28 января 2017 г., люди всемирного сообщества Нового Послания от Бога снова собираются, чтобы отметить присутствие Посланника на Земле и присутствие Нового Послания от Бога в мире. Они отмечают Праздник в честь Посланника.
На второй день Праздника в честь Посланника, у нас была возможность присоединиться к Посланнику и пойти вместе с ним по той дороге, по которой он сам шел. Мы направляемся в путешествие вместе с ним.
По существу, это путешествие похоже на цветок распускающийся лепесток за лепестком.
Это путешествие можно изображать штрихами кистью.
Первый штрих – подготовка и просвещение.
Второй штрих – болезнь и резкая упада.
Третьи штрих – первый голосок возобновления, поток откровений.
Праздник в честь Посланника
Сначала мы слушаем Голос Откровения, который раскрывает нам Историю Посланника. Это – Глава Четыре в последней книге, изданной Обществом Нового Послания от Бога под названием «Новый Посланник».
Сегодня Мы расскажем историю Посланника. Это история, которая имеет большую силу и значение для тех, кто сможет её понять.
Ибо Посланник не обычный человек, хотя он выглядит обычный с внешней стороны. Он скромный человек, поэтому он ни в коем случае не возвеличивает себя. Он ищет не признания, а более глубокую связь с теми, кто предназначен встретить его и получить Новое Откровение Бога.
Прежде тем, как он был послан в мир, Ангельское Присутствие подготовило его и заложило глубоко в его уме просвещение и понимание, которое он позже преподнесет в мир — Знание и Мудрость от вселенной, от самых продвинутых рас во вселенной. Понимание будущего мира и его развития, а также понимание всех опасностей и рисков, связанных с этим; более глубокое понимание человеческих отношений, которое даст ему большую зрелость по мере того, как он будет расти в мире. …..
Кто в мире может понять эти вещи? Кто в мире когда-либо встретил Посланника или может постигнуть тайну и силу его присутствия в мире?
Праздник в честь Посланника
Далее, Маршал поделился некоторыми своими высказываниями.
“Мое путешествие долгое, и моя путешествие значимое, потому что я приношу Знание и Мудрость от вселенной в мир, и я приношу Новое Послание от Создателя всей жизни, Новое Послание, которое бросит вызов традиционным взглядам, Новое Послание, которое откроет двери восприятия и подготовит человечество к его будущему и судьбе в Великом Сообществе жизни во Вселенной”.
“Меня послали в мир, чтобы выполнить это служение, нести бремя и преподнести дарование Нового Откровения. Во всех отношениях моя жизнь не выдающаяся. Я не претендую ни на что-либо иное. Я несовершенен, но я – Посланник, и Послание со мной и во мне, и было показано через меня”.
“Я благословлен и обременен великой миссией. Все мое развитие отныне направлено на то, чтобы выполнить эту миссию”.
“Моя жизнь является платформой для Нового Послания, ничто больше, ничто меньше”.
“Today We shall tell the story of the Messenger. It is a story that holds great power and meaning if it can be comprehended.
“For the Messenger is no ordinary person, though he appears to be ordinary on the outside. And because he is a humble man, he does not exalt himself in any way. He seeks not recognition, but a deeper connection with those who are destined to meet him and to receive God’s New Revelation. ….
“He would have to have a foot in the Mystery, deeply anchored there so that the challenges and the temptations of the future would not take him out of his role and purpose.
“Who in the world can understand these things? Who in the world has ever met the Messenger or can comprehend the mystery and the power of his presence in the world?”
Taking the Journey
In order to comprehend the mystery and the power of the Messenger’s presence in the world, we need to take the journey with him.
Reed and Patricia share some of the Messenger’s sayings with us.
“My journey is long and my journey is great because I bring Knowledge and Wisdom from the universe into the world, and I bring a New Message from the Creator of all life, a New Message that will challenge much conventional thinking, a New Message that will open the doors of perception and prepare humanity for its future and destiny within a Greater Community of life in the Universe.”
“I was sent into the world to provide this service, to bear the burden and the gift of a New Revelation. In all respects, my life is unspectacular. I claim no other authority. I am imperfect, but I am the Messenger, and the Message is with me and in me, and it has been revealed through me.”
“I am blessed and burdened with a great mission. All of my development now is to enable me to carry and to fulfill this mission.”
“My life is a platform for the New Message, nothing more, nothing less.”
“While personally I may want things that other people want and expect certain things from life, my anchor, my lifeline, is to the Assembly. They are my Community, fundamentally. And that allows me to have courage and power and patience and compassion and love.”
“I am creating the strongest legacy and relationships I can so that my words, guidance and testimony will not be lost in the turbulent times to come.”
Taking the Journey
Marshall speaks to us and shares more of his wisdom. He speaks to us specifically of follies in our thinking. And he points to two specific delusions.
Some people believe that they are watched over by the Teachers at all times. Do you believe this? You should not, because it is not true. Many times you are alone. You are not watched over constantly. You are out of control, you are lost. The angels are not by your side all the time. This is why God has given you Knowledge. It is very intelligent. [It will guide you, if you allow it.]
Some people believe that everything in life is divinely guided, it cannot fail. This is not true. It can fail, and although failure can be a good motivator [it is not enough to build a life on]. You must acknowledge the risks. Failure is real and happens all the time.
Some people say that everything happens for a reason. This is not true. Many things happen that are not meant to happen. Anything can happen at any moment, since living in Separation is a state of chaos, confusion and chance. Hold nothing to be sacred that is destructable, for the sacred is incorrputable and lives within you. The Golden Thread is what is really important.
He ends his address to us with a prayer he says for himself and wishes for us too.
“I pray that I may have the courage, wisdom and strength to proceed. I pray that I will succeed in what I am being tested in now. Heaven needs to know that I can be reliable, trusted and consistent. Let me use these times and my circumstances to build great strength. For Heaven needs this great strength to grow in me. Nasi Novare Coram.”

This week the Worldwide Community of responders to the New Message from God are gathering once again for the Messenger’s Vigil to commemorate the appearance of the Messenger in the world and learn more of his journey, responsibility and mission.
I would like to share with you the highlights of each day of the Vigil as it occurs.
In the words of Reed Summers, this Vigil is a time to go into the inner sanctuary of the mind and step into the river of intention, communication and relationship on a cosmic and intimate level.
Those participating are given the opportunity to see what the Messenger must face in being here and share it with him. The Vigil stands to honor the great intention evident in the New Message.
A Time of Intention
Reed shares a couple of passages from the latest revelation Marshall received on January 3, 2017 called The New God Experience. These excerpts give a sense of this intention moving through Marshall, moving through the New Message and into the world.
“This ship [Earth] is taking on water. It is in danger. Human civilization is taking on water. It fragmenting already. Nations are breaking down. Whole populations of people will be moving in the future as their lands dry out or being uninhabitable, a reality never seen in this world before at this scale. Where will the power come from? Where will the inspiration come from?
“… Where will the inner strength and integrity come from to face such a world and to serve it in such a way that human unity can grow and human freedom can be preserved and expanded? It must come from this well that We speak of. It must come from Knowledge within the individual. It must come from God, who wills this for humanity. For this must happen now, for the alternative is far too grave to even speak of. It is driven by need. It is also driven by courage and honesty.” The New God Experience
Reed and Patricia go on to share three messages from the Messenger.
“A New Revelation about God has been brought into the world to clarify the reality of God, the presence of God and the activity of God in the world and in the Greater Community of life in the universe around you. This clarification must be given now for you to find the source of strength within yourself that the Creator has given to you and to others. Your relationship with the Divine must be healed, cleansed and clarified, for it has become polluted and soiled and commingled with other things that do not bespeak a Divine purpose and presence.”
“The New Message is a gift of immense love from the Creator. This love is intended to save humanity from a great peril and to prepare humanity for a greater future and destiny in the Greater Community.”
“People ask, ‘What will the New Message from God do for me?” I say it will give you purpose, meaning and direction, bring clarity to all of your relationships and restore to you your true power and purpose and all of the qualities that you will need to discover and fulfill you mission here on Earth. It will give you the eyes to see and the ears to hear, and it will remind you that you have come here not only to survive and indulge yourself in self-gratification, but more importantly to yield a greater gift to a struggling humanity—a gift that you cannot define, but which waits to be discovered within you.”
A Time of Intention
During the Opening Broadcast, Marshall spoke of his mission and his great burden.
“I am here to declare God’s New Message to the world. I am the Messenger for this, there is none other, and there will not be another Messenger for a very long time.”
“I am here because of humanity’s emergence into the Greater Community and I bring wisdom and Knowledge from the Greater Community to help humanity prepare.”
“I am here because of the great change that is coming to the world, a great change that will change the face of the world and alter the destiny of everyone here. I carry God’s message of warning and gift of preparation for this, something that has never occurred in this world at this scale before.”
“I am here to bring Knowledge and Wisdom from the universe, but also to speak to the ancient intelligence and brilliance that lives within you under layers of culture and conditioning, fear and preference. It is in you, if you dare to find it.”
“I have been sent into the world for this purpose alone. I claim nothing else for myself, except that I am the Messenger, nothing more, nothing less. I am here to bring this Message to the world.”
Marshall concluded his address with a prayer.
“I pray that you will hear me and know me. I pray that you will understand what I have told you tonight. I pray that you will honor yourself enough to allow yourself to experience this Great Coordination. I pray you that will see that it is given to free you from your own dilemmas. It is given to serve the world and to protect it now as it faces the greatest trials in its existence. I pray that you will honor this Revelation, that you will not alter it or demean it. I pray that you will follow and learn and give from it. For the Presence is with us now, may we be with this Presence always. Nasi Novare Coram.”
