Who If I Cried Out Would Hear Me?

crying-out1 Who if I cried out would hear me?In the opening line of the Duino Elegies, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) cried out “Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the Angelic Orders?” In the next few lines, he confessed that the terror of his cry being heard outweighed the longing of his cry, saying “And so I hold myself back, and swallow the cry of a darkened sobbing.”

Who if I cried out would hear me?

But the very fact that Rilke was even able to contemplate such a thing showed that he had some of the frame of heart spoken of by the New Message from God revelation “The Rays of Initiation.

Perhaps some introductions are in order. “The Rays of Initiation” is one of roughly 900 revelations received by Marshall Vian Summers from 1982 to the present. These revelations were recorded on audio, and transcribed shortly after they were received. This particular revelation was received in July of 2012. The audio for this revelation is available at the link.

While I have been actively engaged with the New Message from God since 2010, I freely admit that words like “rays” and “initiation” are not part of my native spiritual vocabulary. The references to the Great Rays in A Course in Miracles made a lovely whooshing sound as they went over my head in 1987. The parts I understood were challenging enough.

The spring of 2010 was a difficult time for me. About a year and a half before that, I was approved for Social Security disability due to Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism. I received this designation relatively late in life, at the age of 51. I considered it the refutation of my life. I could see in my mind’s eye the word “LOSER” in large, black letters on my forehead and my right hand. I could see in my mind’s eye the U.S. Government designating me as the human equivalent of filler meat, pink slime. Who if I cried out would hear me? I didn’t cry out to anyone in particular. I cried out to whom it may concern, “What am I good for?” A voice in my mind’s ear answered “You’re good for finding Knowledge.” I knew what this meant because I had studied Steps to Knowledge shortly after it was received in 1989.

My original plan was to write a post unpacking the contents of “The Rays of Initiation.” Between December of 2013 and now, I have written three such posts unpacking the contents of an individual revelation. I will still do this, just not in this post.

Who, if I cried out, would hear me? I realize this may sound a bit presumptuous, but I dare to claim my cry was heard.

  1. Now you must find out who you are besides every part of you conditioned by experience in this world. You are not your vehicle but have a relationship with it. When you stop identifying with it, you will take responsibility for the relationship.

  2. You have taken first steps to ascension, Bien Venido to a new birth in the same biological machine! Seems you have the guts and courage to progress on this path, be focussed on the Revelations and May the force be with you, be blessed.

  3. Yes, your cry was heard and you answered and moved that answer out into the world where others, with aching hearts and souls, can find it. Your reiteration of, “Who if I cried out would hear me?” is so haunting. It touches very deep–and it isn’t just me. You have a gift and it is being used. 2014 was the year I was struggling with cancer. I knew I would make it because my life is important. I know this about yours as well.

  4. The captain has turned the turbulence light on for far too long. The shadows have names and I’ve narrowed down four variegated directions described tangentially. I can only talk around an absence. This is what I call out to get back to center, but I’m still figuring out the egregious proxy congress.

    NW – Buffer overload
    NE- Packet loss
    SW- Forceful server
    SW- Chattering eyeballs

    You can have the rain clouds back, I’m trying to see this in the right light.
