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. Step 325. The World is Emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds. Therefore I Must be Attentive. And Step 326. The Greater Community is Something I Can Feel but Cannot Understand.
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 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.
