Will My Errors Give Up Their Secrets?

Will my errors give up their secrets? If I love them enough.

In Step 26, “My errors give birth to my Knowledge,” Steps to Knowledge succinctly demonstrates the incompleteness of a number of ideas in popular culture regarding errors. To briefly review, if you think that error doesn’t hurt, you’re kidding yourself. If you justify your poor choices, you anesthetize yourself to the pain they caused to you and others. If I forget my mistakes, I will inevitably make them again. Therefore, it is important to resolve to learn from errors, and to look for their enablers.

Will my errors give up their secrets?

Step 73, “I will allow my errors to teach me,” continues in this vein. This is the first mention of the word “error” since Step 26. The teaching of Step 26 has been gestating and germinating for a while. Underneath the pain, past the heartache, each error has a valuable secret to share, a point of instruction to offer. This step is strengthening the willingness to receive instruction from one’s errors, and thus to no longer repeat them.

When doing this step, I remember thinking to myself, “Allow my errors to teach me? The heck with that! I’ll be proactive! I’ll initiate! I’ll follow my errors down dark alleyways, wrestle them to the ground, and go through their pockets for every last bit of instruction I can get!” But there seems to be a time to make things happen, and a time to let things happen.

I have shared this quote from George Washington Carver before, and I will most likely share it again before too long. He said “Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also – if you love them enough.”

Will my errors give up their secrets? If I love them enough. What do I mean by loving my errors? The Step declares “If you are willing to learn from your errors, you will not be so afraid to recognize them. Then you will wish to understand them, not to deny them, not to bear false witness against them, not to call them by other names, but to admit them for your own benefit.”

Will my errors give up their secrets? If I love them enough.

An Appointment In Aleppo

Citadel Hill in Aleppo, Syria. In July of 2009, Marshall Vian Summers had an appointment in Aleppo

Most of the time, there is very little reference in the revelations received by Marshall Vian Summers, to the location where the revelation is received. Most of the time, not much detail is available as to the events leading up to any particular revelation. The revelation “The Race to Save Human Civilization” is an exception on both counts.

An appointment in Aleppo

This revelation was received in the city of Aleppo, Syria, on July 22, 2009. Aleppo is a city of a little more than 2 million people. Some say Aleppo has been inhabited since as early as 5,000 BC. There is archeological evidence showing Aleppo as a commercial center in the third millennium BC. Others say Abraham milked his sheep on Citadel Hill in the photo, although I don’t know how anyone would know that. But the point is that Aleppo is a symbol of human civilization.

I have already introduced you to Reed Summers, son of Marshall Vian Summers, in this space. This is from his account of that day:

Together we [Reed and Marshall] walked through the Umayyad Mosque, had lunch overlooking its thousand-year-old minaret and talked to the shopkeepers of the ancient souq nearby. We walked up towards the old citadel, just in time to face roadblocks and soldiers – not because of any conflict – but because the Turkish foreign ministry was holding bilateral trade talks with the Syrian government. From atop the citadel we looked out on Aleppo. It was high Summer and the city hummed and steamed with movement and heat. Already millions of Iraqi refugees had relocated to northern Syria and we wondered aloud about the fate of the country.

Between the time of Reed’s account and now, the thousand-year-old minaret of the Umayyad Mosque was reduced to a pile of rubble in clashes between Syrian government forces and rebels. But they were not merely tourists. It is as if Marshall Vian Summers had an appointment in Aleppo, an appointment with revelation. Reed goes on to describe the receiving of this revelation:

That night, The Messenger sat quietly in our small room at the Al Faisal hotel. At his side was a voice recorder. He turned it on, checked the microphone and did a sound test. Then he closed his eyes and waited. A dull silence ensued. Looking over to the closed window, I could hear the blunt honking, revving and shouting of typical evening traffic. Through the faded drapery I looked over the rooftops of the nearby buildings. The sky was gray and the wind was picking up. Above the chaos of satellite dishes, water tanks and laundry hung out to dry, was a Syrian flag flying tall above a government building. It flapped violently against its own flagpole as the wind picked up. In that moment Marshall raised his head, eyes closed and the voice began speaking – not his voice – but the voice of revelation now about to deliver page 9201 of the New Message from God.

The Hotel Al-Faisal is comfortable, but not fancy. It’s not like Marshall Summers wakes up in the morning and decides to receive a revelation. According to the timeline of the New Message from God, there was a period of almost four years (late 2001 to late 2005) where no revelations were received. Marshall has a certain experience of something wanting to come through for a certain period of time prior to when this voice speaks. This voice is distinct from Marshall’s normal voice. The audio of this message is available, and its the only message I know of with car horns honking in the background of the audio. People aren’t counting pages these days, because everyone familiar with the New Message from God knows that it’s a large number, and still growing. The message continued…

And then the words came: “At this moment, you can stand in the middle of a city of two million people and in 20 years, it will be desolate.”

Those prophetic words drove into my mind like a steel hammered into the ground. And they’re lodged there. As I read about the unfolding tragedy of Aleppo I remember that time in 2009 when everything appeared to be normal. Normal outside that room, outside the closed window with the faded drapes. But inside the room, the voice of the New Message from God bore down with the pressure of 2013, 2017, 2025.

Now Aleppo is caught in a spiral of destruction and disintegration. But it was foreseen. This is why God’s New Message must reach the world. Because it can tell the world what is coming.

It must be mentioned that Aleppo was not mentioned by name in this message, but it is as if the voice of revelation answered the questions Reed and Marshall were wondering aloud about earlier in the day.

I have no desire to be an alarmist or doom-monger.  I don’t believe Marshall Vian Summers has a desire to be an alarmist or doom-monger. But if the thousand-year-old minaret of the Umayyad Mosque can be destroyed, are any other historical treasures safe? And if Aleppo, a city with millennia of habitation and civilization, can be desolate, then that seems to say something about the difficulty of the times ahead. Perhaps that was the barbed point of this appointment in Aleppo.

Should You Trust Your Deepest Inclinations?

icebergStep 72 of Steps to Knowledge, “I will trust my deepest inclinations today,” is not the first time the word “inclination” has appeared in Steps to Knowledge. It is the first time the word has appeared the word has appeared in the actual step.

Should you trust your deepest inclinations?

In Step 16, “Beyond my mind is Knowledge,” inclinations is one of the ways Knowledge expresses itself. I listened for deeper inclinations. In Step 50, “Today I will be with Knowledge,” I was told that I had an inclination to know. I was told to trust that inclination. In Step 58, “Knowledge is with me,” I was told that I have “true inclinations,” as in “genuine and effective inclinations.” In Step 71, “I am here to serve a greater purpose,” I was told that I had an inclination toward that greater purpose. The inclination to know, and the inclination toward greater purpose are “bootstrap loaders” as it were, standards against which all inclinations are to be compared. Steps to Knowledge uses the word “inclination” in the common sense of the word, as in “tendency” or “predisposition.”

Just as it takes some work to sort out the voice of Knowledge from the tumult of inner voices, it takes some practice to sort out the deepest inclinations from the jumble of desires, compulsions and wishes. What do you want after the empty space has been filled? What do you want after the garbage has been taken out? What do you want after that itch between the shoulder blades that you just can’t reach has been scratched? I find these questions helpful to ponder when hunting for my deepest inclinations.

Истинная суть моей души

Истинная суть моей души.

Истинная суть моей души

For English version click here.

Когда я впервые сделала Шаг 16 (10 ноября 2012), я обратила внимание на одну мысль, которая как будто звучала из глубин моего ума – “истинная суть твоей души, чиста, незапятнанна”.

Шаг 16  гласит, что “вне моего ума находится Знание”. Вне моего ума также находится истинная суть моей души, себя истинного. Где находится это место, которое вне моего ума? Каковы его качества? Обширное пространство бесконечных возможностей открывается.

Однако, пожалуй, слушание играет значительную роль тут. Я должна слушать более внимательно, чем потребовалось вчера, когда я занималась Шагом 15. Я должна прислушаться к более глубоким склонностям души. Я должна снова слушать без суждения. Я должна слушать глубоко так, чтобы я могла учиться слышать. Я должна войти в состояние внутренней тишины и доводить навык слушания до высокого уровня изысканности и проницательности.

Это умение слышать и способность внимательно слушать требуют применения некоторых усилий. Я это понимаю, как внутреннее слушание, прислушиваясь к репликам, подсказки и направлению души, которые идут из внутри, а не из внешних источников.

Я представляю это место вне своего ума как обширная темная пустота. Знание проживает там. Знание – светлое и яркое, поэтому оно освещает и озаряет это темное пространство.

Истинная суть моей души

Когда я думаю о слушании, я думаю о музыке. Я недавно обнаружила такую певицу, как Кристина Трэйн с её проникновенным, изысканным голосом. Я люблю определенную музыку, песни, которые находят отклик в моим сердце, мелодии, которые открывают своим светом обширные темные места во мне и показывают мне истину. Кристина поет о том, что она знает, что есть место, где все ярко, осветлено, и однажды [она будет] называть ту жизнь, о чем она мечтает, этой жизнью. Мне хочется сказать, что это место и есть истинная суть моей души, чистая, незапятнанная.

Я пытаюсь держаться за эту правду и когда я размышляю об этом Шаге, я вижу эту чистоту глубоко в душе, себя истинного.

Напоследок, есть у меня желание сделать такую оговорку для русскоязычных читателей. Чувствую, что мой пост слишком сумбурный, неграмотный, поэтому хочу предложить вашему вниманию ещё одну песню, которая наверняка ближе к сердцу, и может быть кое-что объяснит.

Will We Repeat The Errors Of The Past?

The Latin Bridge in Sarajevo, where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. Will we repeat the errors of the past?

At the time, it was called “the Great War,” or “the World War.” It is now called World War I. On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Habsburg empire, was assassinated in Sarajevo. The assassin was Gavrilo Princip, a young man obsessed with the Serbian national cause. This started a chain of events, assisted along by a number of bad decisions and miscalculations. The result was one of the deadliest and most destructive conflicts in the history of humanity.

Will we repeat the errors of the past?

Humanity is approaching the centennial of the start of World War I. A number of historians are taking the opportunity to re-examine various issues of that war. I am pleased to report that Oxford historian R. J. W. Evans (who has his own World War I book) has conducted a “reviewpalooza.” Evans wove his own understanding into a review of six different recently published World War I books. His article inspired me to look up information on certain details, and I came away with a few things to share.

Serbia was experiencing success on the battlefield. This was something that was not stressed in my education. In the First Balkan War of 1912-1913, Serbia and its allies (Greece, Bulgaria and Montenegro) defeated the Ottoman Empire. The prize of that war was almost all the European territory of the Ottoman Empire. When Bulgaria demanded a larger share of the spoils, Serbia was on the winning side in the brief Second Balkan War of 1913.

Austria-Hungary was experiencing success in statecraft. This was another thing not pointed out in my education. Austria-Hungary took advantage of turmoil in the Ottoman Empire, and unilaterally annexed Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1908. I looked for any negative consequences experienced by Austria-Hungary for this, without success.

Alliance is transitive. That is, when one country allies with another country, they also ally with the other allies of that country. I have mentioned the Entente Cordiale of 1904 between Britain and France as a good thing in this space. The Entente Cordiale became the Triple Entente in 1907 when Britain and Russia signed the Anglo-Russian Entente. In 1914, Austria-Hungary attacked Serbia. Russia came to Serbia’s aid. Germany declared war on Russia and France. I would really rather not say that the Entente Cordiale was one of the causes of Britain entering World War I, but there it is.

World War I was catastrophic for Serbia. Between late 1915 and early 1916, the Serbian army was forced to retreat to the Adriatic Sea, where they were rescued by British and French naval forces. At the time of that rescue, they were down to roughly 20% of their original strength. There was also a large number of civilian casualties. The minimum number people agree upon was 1,000,000 total casualties, or almost a quarter of Serbia’s population.

World War I was catastrophic for Austria-Hungary. The Austro-Hungarian Habsburg Empire was dissolved into a number of states which more closely matched the ethnic groups in its territory. As far as I can tell, the Habsburgs never ruled another nation.

When the shooting stops, the historical revisionism begins. All the major players (except Russia) engaged in creating accounts of the run-up to World War I. These accounts portrayed the actions of those nations as more reasonable and more justified than perhaps they really were. Has the war just moved to another battlefield?

Will we repeat the errors of the past? I pray that I will learn. I pray that we will learn.

Я несу вам тайну вашей жизни

Я несу вам тайну вашей жизни

For English version click here.

Я несу вам тайну вашей жизни

Я хочу предложить вашему вниманию те слова, которые говорил Маршал Виан Саммерс 22 января 2014 во время первой передачи Vigil, посвящен более близкому знакомству с Посланником Нового Послания от Бога. Мы с Алисой уже поделились некоторыми этими ремарками, но у меня возникло желание поделиться этим выступлением полностью. Сердце мое подсказывает, что есть люди, которые, по разным причинам, не будут смотреть видео, которым нужны эти слова. Слова Маршала можно слушать на английском на этом видео.

Быть со мной означает быть призванным.

Я не предлагаю вам ничего из этого мира, но всё, чего вы действительно желаете; всё, что мир не может и никогда не сможет вам дать; всё, что нужно для достижения вами вашего предназначения.

Ведь вы пришли в этот мир, чтобы выполнить ваше предназначение, а не просто выжить в этом прекрасном и опасном месте, не только, чтобы жить в комфорте и безопасности, но чтобы выходить из зоны вашего комфорта и безопасности и следовать более значимой цели, которая ведома только вашему сердцу.

Я несу вам тайну вашей жизни и память о тех, кто послал вас в этот мир, и кто наблюдает за вами, кто призывает вас, даже в эту минуту, выходя за рамки обыкновенной, обыденной, поверхностной и нецеленаправленной жизни, к более существенному отклику и к более значимым взаимоотношениям. Частью вашего предназначения являются более значимые взаимоотношения с теми, кто разделяет вашу судьбу. Это сила Небес, которая открывается вам в Новом Откровении Бога. Это то, что я демонстрирую вопреки всех моих трудностей. Преданность, которая превосходит понимание, и которую нельзя объяснить, отвечая на бесконечные вопросы. Эту преданность я разделаю с вами, и прошу, чтобы вы её разделили со мной, ибо это бремя непосильно мне, оно не может быть внесено в мир одним человеком, кем бы он не был. Это самое большое Откровение когда-либо переданное человеческому роду, с целью подготовки человечества к будущему в Великом Сообществе жизни во Вселенной и подготовки к новым глобальным обстоятельствам, с которыми человечеству никогда раньше не приходилось сталкиваться.

Это требует Нового Откровения, усердной подготовки, открытого сердца и само доверия. Я прошу вас быть теми, кем вы являетесь на самом деле. Не жалкими, не самоуниженными, не слабыми, не податливыми к чьей-либо манипуляции и влиянию, а теми, кем вы являетесь на самом деле. Быть со мной означает вызвать это из себя, а также быть с теми, кто со мной, кто помогает мне, кто долго трудится незаметно и невидимо во благо – они тоже вызовут это из вас, и ваше сердце будет радоваться, что вы наконец нашли то, в чём вы нуждаетесь и что вы ищете.

Доверять мне означает доверять тому, что верно внутри вас. Те, кто не будет доверять мне, не знают чему доверять, кроме как собственному недоверию. Они не способны понять суть того, что я представляю. Но во всём мире сегодня многие ждут Нового Откровения Бога, и мы с вами должны донести его до них. Не только для их спасения, но также, чтобы создать достаточно сильный голос в этом мире, чтобы изменить курс человечества.

Я молюсь за то, чтобы я смог выполнить то, за чем был сюда послан и что те, кто должны быть со мной, смогут найти в себе храбрость, честность и почувствуют срочность присоединиться ко мне, потому что Я НУЖДАЮСЬ В ВАС ИМЕННО СЕЙЧАС.

Это любовь.

Спасибо.

It Was For This That I Was Born

They won the Champions League Final in 2008, but do they say "It was for this that I was born" ?

Between Super Bowl XLVIII and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Americans are finding great opportunity to satisfy their hunger for dramatic athletic competition. Why is it such a great thrill? Is it seeing the successful execution of a well-laid plan? Is it the experience of your tribe defeating its enemies? I say it is the closest many people get to an experience of their greater purpose, the reason for which they came into this world.

Step 71 “I am here to serve a greater purpose” of Steps to Knowledge declares “You are here to serve a greater purpose, beyond mere survival and the gratification of things you may think you want.” In my life, I have seen many athletes reach the highest pinnacles of their sport. Out of those many occasions, I have never heard an athlete say “I came into the world to win this game.” Out of those many occasions, I have never heard an athlete say “It is my purpose in life to run faster than others, or jump higher than others, or demonstrate more strength than others.” Out of those many occasions, I have never heard an athlete say “It was for this that I was born”

I do know someone reported to have said “It was for this that I was born.” I have written multiple times about St. Joan of Arc in this space, as someone who demonstrated the hallmarks of Knowledge: profound intuition, great insight, inexplicable knowing, wise perception in the present and in the future, and wise understanding of the past.

Joan of Arc Leaving Vaucouleurs by Jean-Jacques Scherrer "It was for this that I was born!"

As Joan of Arc was leaving Vaucouleurs to begin her mission to save France she was asked by a woman: “How can you make such a journey when on all sides are soldiers?” to which Joan responded:  “I do not fear the soldiers, for my road is made open to me; and if the soldiers come, I have God, my Lord, who will know how to clear the route that leads to messire the Dauphin.  It was for this that I was born!”

I make no claim at this point to be able to speak of something and say “It was for this that I was born!” I do claim to aspire and to work to reach that day.

The True Core of My Being Is Pure, Unsullied

the true core of my being

Step 16 tells me that “beyond my mind is Knowledge.” Beyond my mind is also the true core of my being, my True Self. Where is this place beyond my mind? What are its qualities? A vast expanse of infinite possibilities opens up.

However, listening seems to be the key. I am to listen more carefully than the day before in Step 15. I am to listen for deeper inclinations. I am again to listen without judgment. I am to listen deeply so that I may learn to hear. I need to be still and develop the necessary refinement of listening and discernment.

This learning to hear and ability to listen carefully requires some application. I understand this to mean inner listening, listening for cues, inclinations and direction that come from within, not from external sources.

I picture this place beyond my mind as a vast dark void. Knowledge resides there. Knowledge is luminous and bright, so it lights up this dark expanse.

The True Core of My Being is Pure, Unsullied

When I think of listening, I think of music. I discovered Kristina Train recently, a singer with a soulful voice. I love certain music, songs that speak to my heart, melodies I listen to that open up the vast dark spaces inside me and show me the light. Kristina sings that she knows there’s somewhere everything is bright and one day [she’ll] call that life [she] dreams of, this life.

I want to say that this somewhere is the true core of my being, pure, unsullied.

I wrote in my notes for this Step: “I am trying to hold onto this truth and when I meditate on this Step, I can see this purity deep in my mind, my True Self.”

“I bring to you the mystery of your life”

MVS22Jan2014The following words were spoken by Marshall Vian Summers on January 22, 2014, on the first night of the New Message from God Messenger’s Vigil. Both Alisa and I have shared some of these remarks. I am feeling an inclination to share these remarks in their totality. I feel that someone needs to read these words who, for whatever reason, will not watch the video.

To be with me is to have been called.

I offer you nothing of this world but absolutely everything you truly desire, everything the world cannot give you and will never give you, everything that is meant for your fulfilment here.

For you have come with a destiny, not merely to survive in this beautiful and dangerous place, not only to be comfortable and secure but to go beyond comfort and security for a greater reason that only your heart knows, and will follow.

I bring to you the mystery of your life and a remembrance of those who sent you and who watch you and who are calling you, even at this time, out of the ordinary, out of mundanity, out of a superficial and purposeless life, into a greater response and a greater relationship. A greater relationship with those who share your destiny, are part of your calling. This is the power of Heaven that is revealed to you in God’s New Revelation. This is what I demonstrate, through all of my difficulties. The fidelity that surpasses understanding, and which can never be answered through endless questioning. It is this fidelity that I share with you and ask that you share with me, for this burden is too great for me; it cannot be carried into the world by one man, whoever he might be. This is the largest Revelation ever given to the human family to prepare it for its future in a Greater Community of life in the Universe and to prepare it to enter a new world experience unlike anything the human family has ever had to face before.

This requires a New Revelation, a great preparation and a great heart, and a great self-trust. I ask you to be what you really are. Not pathetic, not self-demeaning, not weak, not prone to domination or manipulation but to be what and who you really are. To be with me is to call that out from you and to be with those who have come to assist me through their long journey without recognition – they will call that out of you too and your heart will be glad that you have finally found what you need and what you are looking for.

To trust me is to trust what is true within you. Those who will not trust me do not know what to trust, except their own distrust. They’re in no position to see what this is. But across the world today many are waiting for God’s New Revelation and I and you must bring it to them. Not only for their redemption but also to create a strong enough voice in this world to alter the course of humanity.

I pray that I can do what I am sent here to do and that those who are meant to be with me will have the courage and the integrity, and the urgency to come because I need you now.

This is love.
Thank you.

I Will Practice Today. And The Next Day.

This is the third post in a series of three posts regarding the Step 70 review of Steps to Knowledge, where Steps 50 through 69 are reviewed. I am sharing my notes from when I actually did this Step (sometime in the summer of 2011) with some commentary.

I will practice today. And the next day.

Step 64 – “Today I will listen to another” – “I was hoping for a greater communication, but I didn’t get one.” The Step said “Allow others to express themselves to you.You will find that they have a greater communication for you than you might at first have anticipated.” Even though I didn’t experience a greater communication at the time, I felt good at having followed the directions. I felt good at having practiced listening.

Step 65 – “I have come to work in the world” – “I got it, but I’m still mystified.” I don’t remember what I was mystified about. I might have wanted more details about my work in the world. I might have been mystified as to how I could be somewhat autistic and accomplish anything the world actually needs.

Step 66 – “I will stop complaining about the world” – “The kids said ‘Yeah, right’ when I told them this step. More ‘observe without judgment.’ I’ve got plenty o’ nothin’ and nothin’s plenty for me.

Step 67 – “I do not know what I want for the world” – “I spent three days on this, thinking about the uniting world, the intervention, and the degradation of the environment.” The “intervention” is a shorthand term for a complex of phenomena described in much greater detail in the New Message book series The Allies of Humanity.

Step 68 – “I will not lose faith in myself today” – “This is such a challenge for me, but I remember grasping while journaling that I’m part of a much larger enterprise than me.”

Step 69 – “Today I will practice stillness” – “The instructions were ‘Be still, and get off on it.’ I did.” Those weren’t the exact words, but was the general idea. The Step did include the words “Allow yourself to bathe in the luxury of emptiness.”

Here is the word cloud from Steps 50 through 69.
