First Art Show Hosted by Students of the New Message From God

Released By Vartooka Publishing

BOULDER, Colo., January 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Several students of the New Message from God will be showing artwork in January inspired by their response to this new Revelation. The exhibit, “Steps to Knowledge: Art of the New Message”, will take place at prAna, located in a historic, 97-year-old building in the heart of Boulder, Colorado, (1147 Pearl Street) during the month of January, with a free and open to the public show on Friday, Jan 6, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Refreshments, including wine and cheese, will be served. Prints of the art and books of the New Message will be available for sale.

The artists will speak briefly about their art on display at the Friday night opening. Ellen Mitchell has a series of black and white drawings and several paintings that she started creating more than a decade ago, after moving to Boulder to be of service to the mission. When asked why she moved to Boulder in 1998, Ellen says, “I recognized that this [teaching] was offering a completely new understanding of the world, the cosmos, and of human destiny, and I needed to be part of that.”  Her art that sprang from her studenthood and service was her way of “…trying to grasp the enormity of the New Message.”

Likewise, Carol Coffey moved to Boulder in 1997, “To support and help in any way I could, and also to support other students on their journey.” She will be exhibiting a series of photographs of ‘steps’, i.e., stairways and passages, that were inspired by her own experience with Steps To Knowledge, the book of practices of the New Message. As she went deeper into her own practice, she says, “I suddenly started to see these impactful images out in the world that paralleled my own practice…my own journey with its challenges, beauty and inspiration.”

Thomas Forlano, a young man who moved his life to Boulder in 2010, will be showing several pastel drawings in addition to several crayon drawings he created around the time in his life he describes as ‘gestational”, when experiencing very powerful dreams. When asked why he came to Boulder, his response was that it was “primarily relationships”, a major theme in the New Message.

Marshall Vian Summers, the Messenger, has been receiving the new Revelation for the past 30 years. His mission is to spread the Message he has been receiving for the past 30 years across the entire planet. The New Message has been given to guide, protect and prepare the human family, for we are entering a time of accelerated change and evolution.

Summers lives with his family in Boulder, CO, where a growing number of students have gathered. He formed a non-profit, The Society for the New Message From God, to facilitate his mission of getting the Revelation out into the world. In addition, there is a publishing arm of the Society, New Knowledge Library, a school of the New Message for learning, practicing and sharing the teaching, and the Society hosts several events a year. There are two groups that meet weekly in Boulder that are open to the public: a group  meditation every Tuesday night at 7:00 pm, and a Steps To Knowledge Study group every Sunday at 5:30 pm.

The teachings of the New Message have a following around the world, with its many thousands of pages already translated into more than a dozen languages. The website, www.newmessage.org has recently been updated with critical and timely teachings about individual inner and outer preparedness, greater purpose, life in the Greater Community, and many, many other topics that are essential for transitioning in a rapidly evolving world.

The originator the art show, Ellen Rosenthal, found the New Message in 2008. When encountering other students’ artwork, she found that “…the art touched something in me that I wanted others to have access to….” and that “…others have a right to know about the New Message…and the fun and beautiful images which give access to a Greater Reality.”

The Society for the New Message is on schedule to release four new books in 2012 (available in print and electronic versions) with timely information and teachings for every culture and religious denomination.

For more information about any of the books or events of the New Message, contact the Society at society@greatercommunity.org.

As a young girl I felt an abiding connection with something beyond the world. Something powerful, invisible and great. 

I was born in Northern Minnesota and my early years were spent in a small rural community surrounded by lakes, trees, fields and wildlife. Nighttime during winter was often a time of stillness for me. I remember the vast night sky, silent and expansive rising above me as I lay alone on my back, still, listening and looking up from my bed of sparkling crystallized snow blanketing a field, warm in my many layers of winter clothes. Stillness. Silence. Presence.

These nighttime communions were reprieves. Gifts. Clues.

Many years later other clues emerged. These clues held something darker, more frightening and oppressive. 

Today I see these two forces more clearly. One – a force that serves, loves, challenges and comforts but does not coddle. The other – a force that deceives, calculates, manipulates to its own ends. It believes in its motives. It is seductive and cunning.

Both of these forces are present in our world. There are Forces for Good which are beyond the physical. Unseen but deeply felt. This Great Unseen Force has its rare emissaries living in physical form. Spiritually advanced beings. Wise. Hidden. Watching. Warning. Sent near, but not here, at the request of God.

This Unseen Force has sent a man, a man living here in the world, also at the request of God, to receive a vast message for us; for humanity. This one man has been prepared for a long time; in time and beyond time.

There are great forces at work in and around our world. Those Unseen and those in the physical. Somehow I know them. Have known them a long time. Inexplicable. Indescribable. Palpable.

They, in the physical and beyond the physical, are here for us. The one man sent to receive the vast New Message from God, Marshall Vian Summers, is here for us. Those physical beings near us but not here, The Allies of Humanity, are here for us. And those beyond the physical, The Unseen Ones, are here for us. 

They are all here for us. Working for our advancement. Working for our development. Working for our preservation. Working on behalf of humanity. For us. Calling us to something greater. 

Between my young adulthood and my now middle-age-hood I spent many years off and on lost and found in the world. There were difficult years. Years of searching. Years of exhaustion. Years of heartache and longing. Years of almost giving up. 

Lost. Conflicted. Distracted. Conditioned. Trying to make sense of it all. There were  times of reprieve. Times of communion. Rising up, sinking down. Push. Pull. 

Where was I? Lost. Found. Pushed by a darkness I could not name. Pulled to prayer. Pushed away from the stillness of communion. Pulled to reverence. Pushed by a darkness that now has a name. That I now know well. It is called “The Intervention” by those who work on our behalf. Throughout all of the pushing was the pulling. Lost. Found. Sinking. Rising.

Pushed. Pulled. 

In Relationships and Higher Purpose it speaks of the darker forces. I have had to learn to contend wisely and clearly with these forces. I have had to learn who and what they are. I have had to learn how they work against unity and for separation within my own life. I continue to develop a strong relationship with Knowledge, the Divine and those representatives of the Divine.

It is through the practice of Steps to Knowledge that I was able to regain strong footing and reclaim communion. Pulled to God. Called. Grounded in Steps to Knowledge; the vital preparation for our current circumstances. It is a preparation in discerning other intelligent life in the universe. It is a preparation in Wisdom. It is a living, deep, pure and abiding gift. It is a pathway of united power and redemption. A pathway of reclamation. A pathway home and out of the darkness of separation.  A pathway out of fear. A pathway out of being pushed by forces of dissonance.

This pathway is available due to the devotion of Marshall Vian Summers. The pathway is available to each of us contending with these new world conditions. He has devoted his life to this. The preparation he has received holds the clarity that I work to maintain every day. We are blessed to have the pathway openly given to us. This gift holds the greatest power in the universe. It is worthy of my ongoing commitment to practice.

Like me, there are many who have lost their way temporarily. Some, sadly will remain lost.  But a growing number will find their way because a new way has been given. Each of us will need to hold steady. Hold strong. Hold to Knowledge and develop greater skills and gifts as we enter a more challenging and difficult phase of the world’s evolution. 

Now, as a mature woman, well past the 9-year-old girl in the snow, I consciously choose to develop an abiding connection with those in the world and beyond the world who work on behalf of the reclamation of Knowledge everywhere. These individuals are part of my Spiritual Family with whom I am joining step by step. The gift lives. It is relationship with and for a powerful, invisible and great force in service to a world in great need.

It is the sparkle in the darkness.

There is a new pathway to God alive in the world today. It is fresh. It is deep. It is comprehensive. It is challenging. It is ancient. It is beautiful.

At a critical turning point in my search for God I read Greater Community Spirituality: A New Revelation by Marshall Vian Summers. 

It was like nothing I had ever read before.

I was struck. A cord. A sound. A calling. A remembering far off but close at hand. It was like a host of sacred bells  chiming some distance away. Faint. Compelling. Drawing me in. Calling me out of the life I was living.

An inner sanctuary was confirmed. A different place in the world began to take shape. My place in a vast universe full of life emerged – sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly and sometimes painfully. In the beginning I had no idea where this was leading but I was compelled to go there.

Now, this new pathway to God, The New Message from God, is bringing me into direct relationship with that once faint memory. Now, as I study the pathway provided – The Steps to Knowledge – I can see further. I can see into physical life with more compassion. I can see into life beyond the physical which is wise, loving and powerful.

The New Message from God is one powerful pathway out of separation.

Into this conflicted, challenged, warring world has come something so beautiful it can easily be missed or even  dismissed. To begin to experience The New Message from God and the man, the Messenger, who is receiving and delivering this gift, Marshall Vian Summers, is to go beyond. Beyond assumptions. Beyond condemnation. Beyond religion. Beyond science. Simply beyond…

It is a new threshold for the world. It is a new threshold for humanity. It is a new threshold for the individual. It was  definitely a new threshold for me personally. It is stated many times throughout the Teachings that the promise for  humanity is in the awakening of the individual.

You. Me. Us. 

Average people from average lives called into a greater relationship; called into greater service. Present, strong, awake individuals uniting one by one. 

This pathway provides the means for the awakening. Amazingly and mysteriously, step by step, it develops our inner knowing, a deeper mind called Knowledge, that brings the necessary clarity to see beyond, to go beyond…

This new pathway to God is alive in the world today. It is fresh. It is deep. It is comprehensive. It is challenging. It is ancient. It is beautiful.

Embrace it and the one who is delivering this ancient yet New Revelation.

The link below the photo of Marshall Vian Summers, the Messenger of the New Message from God, leads one into a powerful and deep prayer given to humanity.

Experience his spontaneous and profound gift to us all.

This question was posed to me by someone who had read posts on this blog. This reader was likely asking this question in relation to me being a student of Steps to Knowledge and supporting the Messenger, Marshall Vian Summers, and the vast body of Teachings of the New Message from God that he is sent here to deliver.

It is a good question. It is an important question.

There is a passage in Steps to Knowledge that speaks directly to this question. It is not a Step; it is imbeded between Step 9 and Step 10 at http://www.newmessage.org/pdf/steps-to-knowledge.pdf and asks…

“Why am I doing this anyway?”

“Very good question! Why are you doing this anyway? Why are you asking such questions? Why do you seek for greater things? Why are you exerting the effort? These questions are inevitable. We anticipate them. Why are you doing this? ”

“You are doing this because it is essential. If you wish to live anything greater than a purely superficial and unstable life, you must penetrate deeper and not be confident based only upon weak assumptions and hopeful expectations. There is a greater gift awaiting you, but you must prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and physically. Without Knowledge, you are unaware of your purpose. You are unaware of  your origin and your destiny, and  you will pass through this life as if it were a troubled dream and no more.”

So in response to the question… Yes, I am sure I want to do this.

This universal pathway out of seperation answers the big questions and is a means of navigating a world that is becoming increasingly turbulant.  This practice and teaching is completely applicable and practical for today’s world. It develops a natural spirituality that is inherent in each of us. It is essential for today’s emerging world.

There is a moving and beautiful video of Marshall Vian Summers, the Messenger of God, speaking to all students and future students of Steps to Knowledge.

He states, “Steps to Knowledge is the Creator’s plan and preparation for ending separation. The separation we experience from our own deeper nature and the separation we experience from our Source and all those who gather from beyond the visible world to support and assist us here on earth. Steps to Knowledge was given as a gift to humanity. A gift of preparation. A gift of illumination. And a gift of freedom waiting to be discovered, waiting to be experienced, waiting to be explored.”

Marshall Vian Summers continues to deliver a great gift which humanity desperately needs. It is the answer to our deepest longings and yearnings. It holds the answer to the big questions of “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”

Taking the Steps to Knowledge has been a deeply profound experience for me. One that defies words and description and has bestowed more than I ever thought possible. Becoming a student of Knowledge and meeting the Messenger means more to me than any other accomplishment. May you come to know him as well. The message he delivers brings new life and new understanding. He is delivering a rare, timely and authentic communication from God.

I just watched the prerecorded introduction and conclusion by Will Burrows to the June 2011 broadcast of “The Burden of the Messenger” from the Society for the New Message from God found at:

http://newmessage.org/speaks/burden-of-the-messenger.php

I was deeply moved by the message itself and also the commentary of Will and others who attended that day.

Will Burrows spoke of the Divine origins of the Messenger, the rarity of a Messenger’s presence on earth and what this means to us – to humanity.

During his concluding remarks Will quoted from another Revelation received on May 23, 2011 that states:

“The Messenger has been prepared by Great Powers and sent from the Divine to be in the world according to a greater plan and destiny. Be careful then, how you approach this rare and significant individual. Be careful regarding your expectations, your beliefs, your preconceived ideas, your judgments and your grievances. For these can all blind you to who he is and what he can offer to you and to the world.”

We are living at a time of Revelation. The Messenger, Marshall Vian Summers, is a man whom the Angelic Presence states is not perfect, however, they state that, “It is what is in him and with him and through him that is perfect. His life is a vehicle for this…”

Marshall teaches through his humanity, his practice as the first student of Steps to Knowledge, through the Revelation he is receiving and delivering and his Divinity. He teaches of a greater possibility for each individual, for humanity as a whole and for the world and our place in the universe. We too are vehicles for something great and important during this time and the times to come.

He is, as Will quoted, “…the seed of a greater future for humanity, a new understanding of [our] existance within a Greater Community of life and of the great turning point that humanity is now beginning to undergo.”

The quote Will reads ends with, “Let this be your understanding, but do not come to conclusions, for the awareness of the Messenger is only just beginning.”

It will be a great blessing to you and to all of humanity to come to know of him in your lifetime while he is alive in the world.

Nasi Novare Coram

I have had the priviledge to meet and come to know some of the strongest,  most insightful, responsible and deeply committed women in my lifetime through being a student of the New Message from God. It is the first religion and teaching that I have found that openly promotes and encourages the preparation and ascendency of women in matters of the spirit. It is an honor to know these women and to be counted among them.

As we climb this mountain together way we always remember the source of our strength and conviction – the power of Knowledge within each and every one of us – waiting to spring forth.

The following are excerpts from the Teaching called

“The Age of Women”

“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.

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.

You are entering the Age of Women. It is time for the emergence of women—of responsible, ethical, wise women. But they too must learn the Way of Knowledge. They too must hear the New Message from God, to understand really what is motivating them to take a greater role in life. This understanding exists in certain places in the world already, but it is not accessible to most people. It is rare. It is invaluable. Do not underestimate its potency.

Many of the great leaders in the future for humanity will have to be women. It is their destiny. It is what they must do. If this is denied, then humanity will not progress. It will remain captive to history, to tradition, to conflict and war. Being providers and maintainers, women are more given to establishing peace and cooperation. In a traditional sense, they have to make families work, they have to hold families together, they have to take care of people directly, intimately. Do you see the advantages here? Within the realm of religion and spirituality, this is where the great skills come forth.

For if an individual, a woman in this case, has developed her skills in learning of the deeper mind and of responding to it appropriately—in carrying out its direction responsibly, without altering it or redefining it for herself or for the expectations of others—then as she gains this maturity and this responsibility, she can assume a greater and more natural role as a religious leader.

Because the New Message from God has come through the Messenger, who is a man, should not discourage you from the Message that is being given here. For this man, this Messenger, recognizes the need for the power of women.

We are entering the Age of Women. Accept this. Embrace this. Consider it. The New Message from God will teach you the great meaning of this and why it is so important for humanity at this point in its evolution.

Women are meant to play a greater role in this great transition, to prepare the world to be restored and to prepare humanity for its future and destiny within the Greater Community where human unity and cooperation and where the emergence of women will be required.”

On Sunday July 3, 2011 Marshall Vian Summers spoke openly to the world. It was a live broadcast and was the first public speaking event held at the humble Sanctuary of the New Message from God.

When I first began studying the New Message from God Teachings and began the formal practice of Steps to Knowledge in early 2009, I understood at some deep level who Marshall Vian Summers was and what he was doing in the world. Before even meeting him I understood his Divinity. I understood that he was receiving and delivering an authentic communication from the Divine for the entire world. And unlike previous Messengers through whom God has spoken, Marshall is speaking to the entire world, a mostly literate world, a world advanced in technology and a world now beginning to engage with a vast universe full of intelligent life.

That Sunday morning I saw a man standing in front of loved ones, students and strangers making an audacious proclamation to the world. I saw his vulnerability. I saw the emotional struggle of being required by God to stand and proclaim, “I am the Messenger of God.”

I can’t even begin to imagine what that would be like. 

Years ago I participated in a conference where a friend was going to speak in front of a large group of people. She was speaking to people who were attending to hear her and others like her. They paid for the event, they held similar beliefs, ideas and assumptions and were ready to welcome what she had to say. Even so, moments before she prepared to go on stage she experienced such significant anxiety that she vomited in the woman’s room.

As Marshall stood in front of the people in attendance he looked pale and shaky. His mouth twitched slightly as he began to speak. It was then that I understood the burden of what he has been called to do. Even though I inexplicably understood him to be the Messenger, on that day, for the first time, I saw his humanity. I saw the man. 

Unlike my friend, all who hear him will not welcome him. Many will not be ready to hear his Message. Many will deny, reject and denounce the Message itself and Marshall personally.

But, like myself, others will respond. Others will welcome him and come to know him while he is alive in the world. Others will recognize the Truth in the Message.

His destiny as the one to receive the New Message from God is not a role many of us would welcome easily. The burden of the Messenger is great. And for those whom this Message is meant to reach, the responsibility is great as well – to receive the New Message from God and the Messenger.   

I have witnessed his generosity, his humility, his Divinity and his struggle. He has no choice. He has been called. In this place of “no choice” is the greatest gift. He must make this Proclamation. It is his destiny. It is a Message for the entire world. There are those of us who have our own role to play and must recognize, receive and carry the gift of the Revelation into the future. That is our destiny. The world and all of humanity is waiting.

I feel blessed to consider myself one of the vocal believers of this authentic Revelation from God that Marshall Vian Summers is openly delivering to the world.

This goes beyond the dictates of religion. This goes beyond the fundamentalist teachings. This goes beyond philosophy and theology and ideology because it represents a direct engagement with what God has placed within you.

May many have the heart to recognize this gift for our times and the times to come.

BOULDER, Colo., June 30, 2011 —         /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — For over  20 years, Marshall Vian Summers has lived in Boulder, Colorado, quietly  receiving and writing what he claims is a new message from God. Now, a community  of vocal believers is growing up around him, both in Colorado and around the  world. Many of them believe Summers is God’s chosen messenger for our time and  consider the 8,700 pages of “sacred texts” he has received to be the foundation  of a new world religion.

On Sunday July 3rd, Summers will speak publicly in Boulder about the New  Message from God, his role as messenger, and the revelations he has received  about “planetary freedom and our future in a Universe of intelligent life.” The  event begins at 10 am at the Greater Community Sanctuary (1025 Rosewood Ave) and  will be broadcast worldwide at www.newmessage.org

For nearly three decades, Summers has recorded 800 “spoken revelations,”  which he claims God delivered to him through angelic emissaries.

      “The world is now facing catastrophic environmental change,” says  Summers, “The Creator of all life would not leave humanity unprepared.  Therefore, God has sent a new message to protect and uplift humanity. I have  been given this message, yet the responsibility to bring it into the world has  been immense. It has been a great burden for me.”

When asked if his New Message from God is meant to replace the religions of  the world, Summers responds “No, the New Message is intended to give the world’s  religious traditions a greater scope, and to emphasize their one source, saying  that they were all initiated by God but changed by man.”

Those interested in Summers’ New Message from God can contact William Burrows  at the Society for the New Message from God, at 1-800-938-3891 or society@newmessage.org.  This event is free of charge and open to all and can be viewed live at www.newmessage.org
