Rwanda – The Nation that Elects the Most Women – The Age of Women

Women are “the backbone of reconstruction of our country but at the same time also there was a political will to empower women,” where Mathilde Mukantabana, Rwanda’s ambassador to the U.S. was quoted in a recent article on NPR.rwanda women by Jason Straziuso:AP

In the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, women began to take a more prominent role in government. They began the repairs of a country with the goal of the literal reconstruction of the infrastructure and of the reconstruction of the social and moral fiber of the nation.

There is a natural ascendancy for women in the realm of religion and politics. That is not to say that all women will ascend there, or that that will be the purpose of all women. Certainly not, but the opportunity for those who are naturally given—who have purpose, real purpose, in this arena— should be allowed the opportunity to assume a greater role.

Gumisai Mutume states that when women are involved in development, families, communities, and countries feel the benefits to a much greater extent than they would otherwise. Women play a vital and essential role in the formation of a more just society.

The UN Forth World Conference on Women states that without the active participation of women and the incorporation of women’s perspective at all levels of decision-making, the goals of equality, development and peace cannot be achieved. 

Over the centuries, men have been so afraid of the power of women and the possibility of women ascending within the society and culture that they really have denied themselves the assets and the benefits of these skills. And civilization as a whole has been retarded and restrained, its full potential not realized because of this.

Let us support the rise of women in politics and religion. All will benefit from the participation of women in greater roles and responsibilities as is being demonstrated in the Rwanda. Here is the full list of countries ranked by women holding a governmental office compiled February 1, 2014.

Nasi Novare Coram

The Presence of the Teachers is with us…

Nasi Novare Coram is a great invocation that recognizes the Unseen Ones, or

Angelic Presence,  from the Greater Reality from which we have come.

This Greater Reality is not only of our world but of the Greater Community throughout the universe as a whole.

This invocation is a calling for their help and protection. If called on in true sincerity this provides the greater strength that we need when we are feeling afraid or endangered.

Open yourself to them for in this way you now represent the strength of Heaven.

Encampment 2012: Meeting the Messenger

Tags

, , , , , ,

Students from around the world made the rare and highly anticipated pilgrimage to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado to meet the Messenger of The New Message from God.

Approximately 70 people attended and they came from the far reaches of the world to hear the Messenger. They traveled from China, New Zealand, France, Puerto Rico, Spain, Canada, Malaysia, Germany and several US states.

Many came for the first time to see for themselves who this man is that is claiming to be God’s Messenger for our times. Others have known him for years.

Everyone left with an experience of the Messenger. The depths of their encounter with the Messenger are known only to them. But people were impacted. They had a direct experience and were changed by it.

Here are some comments from people who attended:

“I was deeply touched by the resonance of love. You organically felt love for people you never met before.” T, Florida

“I had feelings that I have not felt before, and in a very intense way. It was really important for me to share my experience with other students around the world, even if it was quite difficult for me to really shared deep experiences because of my English skills. It is more real to me now. It’s exciting. I feel less isolated now.” T, France

“At the Encampment I met one of the catering staff who was from Turkey. We talked in Turkish, he asked what this all was. I told him it is called the New Message from God. He said how warm and safe it felt in the Barclay with us here, that there was “something really good is happening here.” I could tell he was impacted by going in and out of the Encampment space to deliver the meals.” R, Colorado

“The song night was most powerful for me. It brought to me an experience, and therefore a clarity, of what this is about – freedom for humanity to experience and express it’s true relationship/love for each other and God.” G, Texas

“I was impressed by the sensitivity and strength of Marshall Vian Summers.” E, Spain

“I remember his compassion, his patience with everyone, even with those who didn’t know about the message, there is a word in English for this: forbearance, I was so inspired and I realized how harsh I was, so glad to see someone being able to express this with simplicity.” D, France

“At the Encampment, I experienced a very deep feeling of gratitude for Marshall Vian Summers and a profound appreciation of the energy, effort and care that it has taken for him to bring this message into the world. The hours upon hours upon hours. Getting out of bed from a deep sleep to respond to the call, walking to the sanctuary in the wee hours of the morning. Rain, snow, or moonlight nights he responded.” M, Colorado

“Since the Encampment I’ve started addressing him as the Messenger, the conversations sometimes come to a complete stop after that. But in my heart I feel these words are true and whole and I think they pick up on that as well. That I’m coming from a place of quiet truth.” S, Colorado

“Meeting Marshall and the other Students at the encampment has strengthen my relationship to the Message and the Messenger. I feel a stronger and deeper commitment, a growing Devotion.” K, California

“People are always trying to take issue with the Messenger to avoid considering what the Message is about…” M, France

“I am coming to know the Messenger in a different and deeper way by spending time with him in the Presence. I have known him for some years as the man of Knowledge who has brought this Revelation — and only sometimes as the Messenger. It feels very important for me to spend this time in his presence because there is a different, deeper knowing that comes.” D, Colorado

We are living at a time of Revelation and just a precious few are aware of this fact.

The environment of the Encampment of 2012 carried a greater promise for the Message and the Messenger being known to many more. Myself and others felt a greater movement within, individually and collectively, and a deep recognition of the humility, generosity and authenticity of the Messenger and the Society members and volunteers who support him.

“You have the opportunity to witness the Revelation, the process of Revelation, the clarification of the Revelation and the meaning of the Revelation for your life and for the whole world. For this is a Message for the whole world, not just for one tribe or one people or one nation or one region. It is not a revision of what has been given before. It is not a reaction to what has been given before. It is not adjunct to any teaching or theology that exists in the world. It is something new and revolutionary. It represents a great threshold and a great challenge for the human family.” From: Living at a Time of Revelation

Emerging into the Greater Community: Resisting the Intervention

, , , , ,

May all minds awaken to the power and presence of Knowledge within us. Let us become strong and knowledgeable regarding life in the Universe and let us wisely prepare for our future in the Greater Community.

Let Knowledge awaken objectivity, clarity and a real understanding of the motives of those present in our world. May Knowledge within guide and influence humanity for our greatest good.

Let us now unite and join together in the face of the Intervention. Let us forge human unity and cooperation for the preservation of our world. May we face our greatest threat and our greatest challenge with courage, compassion and wisdom.

May we recognize our greater spiritual power; a power that has the strength to unite humanity and ensure a future as a free and self-determined people. Let us now call upon the power of the Unseen Ones, the Angelic Presence, to help us gain perseverance, strength and encouragement.

Let us gain strength in Knowledge. Let us unite in resistance without anger or fear. And let us manifest this resistance through the power of Knowledge within us.

May we refuse the offerings and the persuasions of the Intervention. May the Intervention become known to enough people so it can no longer function in secrecy. May the minds and hearts of people everywhere not be turned by persuasion, seduction or intimidation.

When this is so, when we have refused, have exposed and have not turned and have become strong in Knowledge the Intervention has no power over us and must withdraw.

In the universe, Knowledge is the greatest power there is. We have this power. May we reclaim it and exercise it now. And in so doing, join those free races in the universe who await us.


This prayer for strength and Knowledge, in the face of emerging into the Greater Community, draws on the Teachings revealed by Marshall Vian Summers including revised excerpts from The New Message from God, The Allies of Humanity Briefings and Life in the Universe.

Life in the Universe: Book Review

Tags

, , , , , ,

Marshall Vian Summers’ most recent book, Life in the Universe, is an expansive divinely inspired discourse on the complexities of living in the physical universe and what humanity now faces, including the spiritual strengths we must develop as the world emerges into a universe full of intelligent life.

Life beyond our world is described in great detail and with great compassion. Topics range from past visitation and the limits of space travel to the use of persuasion and influence in the mental environment rather than aggression to gain advantage. Life in the Universe also discusses creation and evolution in a manner that far surpasses our current scientific and religious understanding.

Some aspects of life and survival beyond our borders are similar to those here on earth but other aspects simply won’t meet the expectations of those lusting after a vast frontier to explore and conquer or of those hoping a benevolent race will come save a blissful and welcoming humanity. On the contrary, space is occupied, and the competition among intelligent races is significant. Humanity is now being asked to step up to the universal plate, become wise stewards of our world and face this greater environment with wisdom, discernment and greater clarity.

Several important chapters are devoted to God and spirituality within the Greater Community. God in this context is unfettered by human interpretation. Summers presents a potent spirituality practiced in its “essential form and taken to a high level of expression and experience” beyond the confines and distortions of any one people’s rituals, culture and history or even of any one world. In the Greater Community, God’s will is expressed and furthered by spiritually advanced individuals within our world and by spiritually advanced individuals and races in other worlds who are very different from ourselves.

What we get in Life in the Universe is a rare wake-up call and a powerful spiritual preparation. It spells out the challenge of developing our own inherent spiritual strength and responsibility regarding our emergence into our local region of space. This book provides a blueprint in which to grow beyond our hopes, dreams and preferences. The reality of life in the universe will likely fall short of people’s ideals and speculations. But why would we think the universe would supply what we want when our own world cannot?

Regarding humanity’s future in the Greater Community, Life in the Universe could be one of the greatest pivotal and visionary publications in human history. Its intention is to provide an education and a preparation beyond what humanity could imagine or what any one person could know about or conceive of alone. It is refreshing and brave.

Marshall Vian Summers, like visionaries and prophets of the past, holds open the door to an understanding beyond our current human perspective. Life in the Universe daringly pushes the boundaries… our boundaries to space, our boundaries to spirit and the boundaries of our own beliefs regarding what life should be like “out there.”

Is Spirituality Different in Men and Women?

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Men and women are now being asked to learn to work together in ways that value each gender for their particular contributions and skills. In The New Message from God there are many teachings on the differences between men and women, but this is related to form and orientation mostly. Men live in male bodies; women live in female bodies. Each gender holds strengths and weaknesses.

“Men and women are different in their vehicles of expression, not in their spirituality.” Says Marshall Vian Summers in Relationships and Higher Purpose. “There is no masculine spirituality or feminine spirituality. There is spirituality expressed through the masculine, and there is spirituality expressed through the feminine. This is a very important distinction.”

Knowledge, the great endowment given to all intelligent life, does not vary in men and women, it is a uniform, complete and permanent connection to God. Only the expression of Knowledge varies related to gender and the individual’s unique nature.

So we are faced with our very flawed and human perspectives and cultural expectations regarding the roles and abilities of men and women.  This is that which needs addressing. This is the great need – to discover our individual purpose, meaning and direction in life for both men and women, not just for personal reasons but for the future of our world.

“All learning is about relationships,” continues Summers, “how to be in relationships, how to express yourself, how to work within relationships and how to contribute in relationships.”

Within greater relationships the recognition and allowance of the contributions of women beyond prescribed roles benefits men and women alike. It benefits the overall progress of humanity as we face a future that will require the creativity, insight and wisdom of all people.

A great threshold in the evolution of humanity stretches out before us. Within the context of greater relationships that allow for the emergence of the individual’s gifts, talents and contributions, lies the potential of our future.

Let us, men and women both, embrace and support the emergence of our inherent gifts. Let us grow strong in relationship. Let us grow strong in Knowledge.  Let us become what is held out to us as our greatest strength as we emerge into the Greater Community of life. Let us become a people united and developed in wisdom and vision and let us ultimately join with other free races who hold out great hope for us and see us very differently than we currently see ourselves.

The Age of Women in a Universe Full of Intelligent Life

“There is a New Message from God in the world, and one of the things that it calls for is the emergence of women leaders, particularly in the area of spirituality and religion. It is time now for certain women to be called into these greater roles and responsibilities, and it is important around the world in different quarters and in different religious traditions that this be allowed.

It will be interesting, perhaps, for you to consider that in advanced nations in the Universe—advanced nations in the Greater Community of intelligent life in which you live—that where there is a distinction between men and women, or male and female, in those particular races, the races that are not androgynous in nature, that the female is usually given priority in matters of conscience and spirituality…”

As one can discern within the first 2 paragraphs quoted here, The New Message from God is not a reiteration of teachings from the past. The New Message is calling men and women to stretch into territory that might seem strange but on a much deeper level, very familiar.

For women who have a connection to the vastness of space along with a deep connection to the sacred, this teaching is likely for you. It is a New Revelation with new thresholds for men and women alike. 

It brought, for me, what was a distant longing, a remote familiarity coupled with a sense of destiny when looking at the night sky, into a living and breathing reality. The night sky is still the night sky – vast, beautiful and mysterious, but now it holds out a greater need and responsibility for development in the Way of Knowledge.

It is through beginning Steps to Knowledge and undergoing this development in the Way of Knowledge that I have come into a greater relationship with my true nature and direction. It is a process, at times extraordinarily difficult, but which always yields a greater experience and comprehension of the world we all inhabit, the evolutionary destiny of our world and the importance of individual preparation in the Way of Knowledge.

The Way of Knowledge is now being openly given to our world. This openness is rare in many, many worlds of the Greater Community.

Women now have this rare and precious opportunity for reclaiming and expressing Knowledge. It is the development of Knowledge which will assist us in emerging as a free and self-determined race in the Greater Community. It is the development of Knowledge that will provide the essential leap in comprehension and preparation necessary to meet our evolutionary destiny. It is the development of Knowledge that marks the Age of Women and calls me and calls you and calls many to this greater relationship with the Divine and a greater responsibility and contribution to life.

Let this be so.

Go to The Age of Women to read and listen to the teaching in its entirety.
