A Message from
Marshall Vian Summers
For the past 35 years, I have been immersed in a religious experience. This has resulted in my receiving a vast body of writings about the nature of human spirituality and humanity’s destiny within a larger panorama of intelligent life in the Universe. These writings, encompassed in the Teaching in The New Message, contain a theological framework that accounts for life and the presence of God in the “Greater Community,” the vast expanse of space and time that we know to be our Universe.
The cosmology that I have been receiving contains many messages, one of which is that humanity is emerging into a Greater Community of intelligent life and for this we must prepare. Inherent in this message is the understanding that humanity is not alone in the Universe or even alone within our own world. And that within this Greater Community, humanity will have friends, competitors and adversaries.
This larger reality was dramatically confirmed by the sudden and unexpected transmission of the first set of the Allies of Humanity Briefings in 1997. Three years earlier in 1994, I had received the theological framework for comprehending the Allies Briefings in my book Greater Community Spirituality—A New Revelation.
At that point, as a result of my spiritual work and writings, it became known to me that humanity has allies in the Universe who are concerned about the well-being and future freedom of our race. Within the growing cosmology that was being revealed to me, was the understanding that, in the history of intelligent life in the Universe, ethically advanced races had an obligation to bequeath their wisdom to young emerging races such as our own, and that this bequest must take place without direct interference or intervening in the affairs of that young race. The intent here is to inform, not to interfere.
This “passing down of wisdom” represents a long-existing ethical framework regarding Contact with emerging races and how it should be conducted. The two sets of the Allies of Humanity Briefings are a clear demonstration of this model of non-interference and ethical Contact. This model should be a guiding light and a standard that we should expect other races to hold to in their attempt to contact us or to visit our world. Yet this demonstration of ethical Contact stands in stark contrast to the Intervention that is occurring in the world today.
We are moving into a position of extreme vulnerability. With the specter of resource depletion, environmental degradation and the risk of a further fracturing of the human family growing everyday, we are ripe for Intervention. We live in seeming isolation in a rich and valuable world that is being sought by others beyond our shores. We are distracted and divided and do not see the great peril intervening at our borders. It is a phenomenon that history has repeated over and over again regarding the fate of isolated native peoples who were facing intervention for the first time. We are unrealistic in our assumptions about the powers and beneficence of intelligent life in the Universe. And we are only now just beginning to take stock of the condition that we have created for ourselves within our own world.
The unpopular truth is that the human family is not ready for a direct experience of Contact and certainly not ready for an intervention. We first must put our own house in order. We do not yet have the species maturity to engage with other races in the Greater Community from a position of unity, strength and discernment. And until we can reach such a position, if ever we can, then no race should attempt to directly intervene in our world. The Allies are providing us much needed wisdom and perspective, yet they are not intervening. They tell us that our fate is and should be in our own hands. Such is the burden of freedom in the Universe.
Regardless of our lack of readiness, however, Intervention is occurring. Humanity must now prepare for this, the most consequential threshold in human history. Rather than just being casual witnesses to this phenomenon, we are at the very center of it. It is happening whether we are aware of it or not. It has the power to change the outcome for humanity. And it has everything to do with who we are and why we are in the world at this time.
The New Message has been given to provide both the teaching and the preparation that we now need to face this great threshold, to renew the human spirit and to set a new course for the human family. It speaks to the urgent need for human unity and cooperation, the primacy of Knowledge, our spiritual intelligence, and the greater responsibilities we must now assume at the threshold of space. It represents a New Message from the Creator of all life.
My mission is to bring this greater cosmology and preparation into the world and with it, a new hope and promise for a struggling humanity. My long preparation and the immense teaching in the New Message are here for this purpose. The Allies of Humanity Briefings are but a small part of this larger message. It is time now to end our ceaseless conflicts and to prepare for life in the Greater Community. To do this, we need a new understanding of ourselves as one people, the native people of this world, born of one spirituality, and of our vulnerable position as a young, emerging race in the Universe. This is my message for humanity and this is why I have come.
