rays1This is a message for all who genuinely feel a higher calling and a deeper sense of purpose is needed at this time in their lives.  From a soul-level perspective, we are all here to express our gifts and abilities in a unique manner that is exactly tailored to our skill-set and deepest longings.  We are here to be of service during these tremendous times of change, and in order to be effective, we must fully realize the magnitude of the transition we are currently going through.  To successfully navigate this transition, we must cultivate and re-establish our connection to our Inner Being — our Source — for this is where Knowledge lies within us.

What is called for us at this time is a willingness and a desire to be of greater service, to fully step into our roles here, whatever they may be.  This desire comes from the depths of our being, and many of us are feeling this calling now. This is a process that requires greater integrity, self-awareness and compassion. For many of our relationships, outer circumstances, and life experiences may drastically change as this process unfolds.   Ultimately, being really honest with ourselves is required, especially concerning our associates, activities, priorities, and goals.  It is important to understand that opportunities to actualize our higher calling are not available forever — we must be ready, willing, and able to answer the call when the time comes.

The following message is titled The Rays of Initiation and was brought forth through Marshall Vian Summers.  In 1982, he began receiving a series of profound revelations in the deserts of the American Southwest.  For more than 25 years, these revelations have continued, growing ever wider in scope, meaning, and their implications.  These messages are known as a New Message from God, and I believe they are extremely important at this time.  What I admire most about these messages is their directness and piercing honesty, going beyond all rosy and romanticized notions of enlightenment and ‘fast-track’ spiritual advancement.

Please consider checking out more of these Messages or the Steps to Knowledge if you feel compelled to.  Thank you for letting me share!

With Love,

The Rays of Initiation

As revealed to God’s Messenger
Marshall Vian Summers
on July 23, 2012 in Boulder, Colorado

 

The Power and the Presence watches over you

And all people in the world

Waiting for those

Who are ready

Waiting for those

Who are ready to awaken

From their deep sleep

Of desire and disappointment

Watching over the world

Waiting for those minds

That seek freedom.

Not just an outer freedom

But an inner freedom

Waiting for the moment

Of readiness

In the individual.

 

People think

That the Angelic Presence is always there

To abide with them

But this is not accurate.

Indeed

The Presence is waiting

For those who are ready

To respond

To a greater calling

And a greater purpose

In life.

It is those individuals

That will garner the attention

Of the Angelic Assembly.

 

People pray

For many things

But the Angelic Assembly is waiting

For the real calling

From the individual—

A calling usually born of despair

And frustration

Or disappointment in the world

Seeking for something

More real

More authentic

More permanent and

More essential

To their true nature

And purpose

For being in this world

At this time.

 

Great Rays are shined upon those

Who can respond and

Who are ready to receive

Something marvelous

And significant.

 

Great Rays of light and power

Are directed at those

Who are beginning to receive

The preparation

For their greater purpose

And calling in life.

 

You cannot call upon this yourself

Consciously.

It must be born of something

Within you

That is very deep

And very primary

To your life and purpose here.

 

You cannot in your mind

Pray for the Great Rays

To shine upon you

To initiate you

For your mind cannot call upon this.

It must come

From a deeper place

Within you,

But your mind can prepare you

By recognizing

The greater need of your life

And the fact that

You are not living the life you are meant to live

And that you are circumscribed

By many things

Of little value

And future possibilities.

 

You prepare by recognizing the truth

About your life

In a moment of great clarity and sobriety.

You take stock of where you are.

You recognize

That you are lost in the world

Following the prescriptions of your culture

And of those people

Who influence you so strongly.

 

Here you pray not merely for relief from suffering.

You pray for the truth

To be revealed to you—

Not just the truth of your circumstances

But the truth of your life.

You pray for your life

Your real life

To be given to you.

 

This is the calling

That comes from deep within you

Not merely something that the mind wants

For the moment

Not for relief from suffering only

Not just to have a nicer life

Or a prettier set of circumstances

Or to fulfill your ambitions and desires.

 

This comes from the deeper place within you

From Knowledge within you.

This is what speaks to the Angelic Assembly.

This is the result of a deeper experience of yourself

A deeper reckoning within yourself

A deeper honesty.

 

If you are truly ready to respond

Ready to evaluate and change

The circumstances of your life

If necessary

Then the Great Rays will shine upon you

As if a beacon or a spotlight

Has been directed at you very specifically

Not to the people around you

Not even to the person sitting next to you

Not to your husband or your wife or your children

But to you.

This begins then

A process of deeper reckoning and evaluation

A process in many stages of initiation

A process that begins a great turning point for your life.

 

For in truth

You do not know who you are

Or why you are here

Or what you are sent to accomplish

Or whom you are here to meet

What you are here to avoid

What you are here to accomplish

What are the great hazards of your life

Beyond your understanding

What are the great possibilities for your life

Beyond your understanding.

 

You have a relationship with the Angelic Assembly

That watches over this world

And everyone in it.

This is intrinsic to who you are

And why you are here

What you are sent to accomplish

Whom you must meet

Where you must go.

It is a greater journey of your life

Waiting to be discovered and undertaken.

 

Your beliefs

Your ideology

Your religious views

Your spiritual aspirations

Well, more often than not

They merely stand in the way

Of this deeper recognition

Which is not something of this world.

Or anything in this world

But represents your life beyond the world—

Where you have come from

And where you will return to

And the relationships

That are primary to your existence

And to your participation in the world at this time.

 

The Great Rays are powerful.

They reach deep within you

Bypassing your intellect

And all of your beliefs

And ideas

And expectations

And grievances

And so forth

As if they are shining upon a part of you

That you have barely experienced in life

And are barely acquainted with—

Something ancient

Something you might have experienced momentarily here and there

Something unchanging

The changeless part of yourself.

 

This is communication without words.

It is the power of initiation

Generated from the Angelic Host and Assembly

Directed now at an individual

Who has reached the point of readiness

Not only internally

But readiness

where something on the outside

Must be done

For should they miss this point

In their development

And in their life

They could miss their calling entirely.

 

Here timing is critical

For you only have so much time to delay.

You only have so much time

To be lost in the world

Before your opportunity is bypassed

And it is too late for you to respond.

You do not know when this is

But the Angelic Presence knows

Knowledge within you knows.

 

As you approach this critical time in your life

You will feel ever more anxious

About your outer circumstances

Ever more drawn

To something more mysterious

More questioning about your values

And involvements with others

More uncomfortable and dissatisfied with your circumstances

Even if they are pleasurable

Even if they are seemingly beneficial.

 

You become more restless.

You may try to fulfill this restlessness

With more possessions

More activities

More recreation

Even more spirituality

But you are reaching a time of readiness.

It is happening at a deeper level

Byond the realm and the reach of the intellect.

The Presence is watching you

Carefully now

To see how you will respond.

Will you deny your experience?

Will you resist your experience?

Will you try to lose yourself again in romance

Or some other kind of pursuit in the world

Even some kind of edifying pursuit

Like some great social cause

Or political campaign?

Yet this is about something very different.

 

At this time

It is so important

To be responsive to yourself

To practice inner listening

To listen for something deeper

Without coming to conclusions

To orient yourself in this way

For if the Great Rays are directed at you

It will so upset your life

And change you.

It is like being struck by lightning.

 

This experience can be profoundly internal

But it can also be generated

By the arrival of certain people

Who are here

To call you out of your past

And to be a part of your preparation

For a future greater life.

 

In either case

It will begin a process

Of profound change and self-evaluation

So strong now

That you cannot simply deny it

Or think it is something else

For it will seem to overtake you

And you have to yield to it.

 

The Angelic Presence watches you

To see if you can do this

If you can receive initiation

And go through the long

And inexplicable process

That this will require.

You cannot control this process.

You can only keep yourself focused upon it

And that will require

All the self-discipline

And compassion towards yourself

that you can muster.

 

People can fail

At this juncture

With great consequence.

It has to do

With the presence

Of certain other people

In your life

Who will play a significant role

In your greater work and purpose here.

It may be time

For you to meet them.

They may be calling for you.

The time of your rendezvous is approaching

And you must be able to respond.

 

You do not have these opportunities

At all times.

Do not tell yourself

That initiation can happen

At any time

Whenever you feel so inclined

For this is really not true at all.

You have certain opportunities in life

Given the proximity

Of those people

Who will be essential for your success

And given your own development

And degree of self-honesty.

 

For you to be called in this way

You must be prepared

To accept this experience

And undergo the process of preparation

Which is very deep and internal.

You must be able

To respond to those

Who come into your life

Who initiate you

And be a part

Of this great turning point.

 

This is beyond

Your personal plans

And evaluation

Of your life

Entirely.

You may think

Or feel

That you are meant

For something greater

And perhaps

This feeling has been with you

For a very long time

But we are speaking

Of something

Of a far greater potency

And magnitude.

 

If the Great Rays are directed at you

If it is a time of great change

If your time has come

The time for which you have prepared unknowingly

If that time has come

You must be ready to receive

And you must be prepared

To go through

A period of great confusion

And uncertainty.

 

In the world today

God’s New Messenger is here

Bringing a New Message from God

To the world.

If you are to meet him

And for this meeting

To be truly efficacious

You must be prepared in this way

Or you will think

He is just another person

Making great claims.

You will evaluate him

On a personal level

The way you evaluate people

At this present time.

You will not see.

You will not know.

You will not realize

That this is the greatest encounter

You will probably have

In your entire life.

If you miss it

It is missed.

 

God wills for you

To awaken

To your greater purpose

And to receive

The great blessing

From the Angelic Assembly

The Great Rays

But that does not mean

That you will make this rendezvous.

That does not mean

That you can hear

And see

And know

In the critical moment

Where recognition must occur.

That does not mean

Your success is assured.

That does not mean

That you are ready

Willing

And able.

 

If you have a destiny

With the Messenger

You must be preparing for that

Setting aside

That which cannot go forward

Embracing that

Which is crucial

To your success

Building your sense of integrity

Self-honesty

Evaluating your life

To see

What is truly genuine

And has destiny

And what does not

Facing loss

Giving things up

If necessary

Stepping away

From people

When necessary

Stepping away

From your former investments

In people

Places

And things

If necessary.

 

When this life is over

And you return

To your Spiritual Family

They will only have

One question

For you

And that is

Whether you made

Your sacred rendezvous

In life

And gave your gifts

To the world

And in that moment

You will know

With absolute clarity

Whether you did

Or did not.

There is no punishment here

But the weight of failure

Is great.

It means

You will have to try again

And go through

The whole process

All over again.

That should be incentive enough

To encourage most people

To proceed.

 

When you pray to God

Do not pray for little things

Little advantages

Dispensations.

Pray that Knowledge

Will become strong

Within you.

Pray that you will have

The forbearance

And the self-discipline

To hold back

Your fearful

And reactive tendencies.

Pray that those

With whom

You are meant to become engaged

Can find you in the world.

Pray that you will be ready for them

When they arrive

That you will realize

You are making an engagement

Now

Of greater importance

Without trying to

Fully understand

 

What it means

Or what it will require.

 

People who are called

Are called out

Of their former circumstances

And prepared

For a different kind of life.

Everyone has a greater purpose

For being in the world

At this time

But not many people are ready

To receive their calling.

They are not ready

To receive the Great Rays.

 

The future of the world

Depends upon

Enough people

Receiving their calling

And making their contribution

To a world facing

Great and perilous change

A world facing

A Greater Community of life in the universe

A world facing

Economic decline

Environmental destruction

A changing climate

A world at risk

Of collapsing from within

And facing intervention from without.

This is the world

You have come to serve.

It is no accident

You are here

At this time.

 

The Blessing is with you

But you are not with the Blessing.

The calling is waiting for you

But you are busy doing other things

Preoccupied at every moment.

The Angelic Assembly

Watches over you

But your eyes are cast down

To the ground.

You pray for peace

And happiness

And beneficial circumstances

Without realizing

That you are really here

For something else.

You pray to the heavens

That your state of Separation will be satisfactory

And fulfilling

Which can never be the case.

 

The Angelic Assembly is waiting for you

To realize that

Without your greater purpose

And calling

Your life

Is but a troubled dream.

You cannot find fulfillment here

No matter what you do

For you are here

For a greater purpose

And the need of your soul

Is to have this purpose

Realized

And expressed

In the world.

 

If you were not a Greater Being

With a greater origin

And a greater destiny

This would not be the case.

You would just be

An intelligent creature

Living on the surface

Of the world

Trying to be safe

And secure

Trying to be happy

With what you have

And always wanting more.

 

But you are a Greater Being

With a greater origin

And a greater destiny

And the calling is waiting for you

To come to that point of recognition

And readiness.

That sends a signal

To the Angelic Presence

That you are truly ready

And that the process

Must begin.

 

If you cannot generate

This recognition

Within yourself

Then it will be generated

For you

Because your life has reached

The critical point

Where the calling

Must occur

If it is to ever occur in this life.

And that can be extremely disruptive

And the chance of failure will be greater here.

For there is no assurance

You will understand

The meaning of

What is happening.

There is no assurance

That you will follow

What you must follow

And step away

From what you must

Step away from.

 

In a universe of intelligent life

Of countless races of beings

The Great Rays

Are being cast upon those

Who can respond

And who must respond.

It is a Great Plan

For a universe

So far beyond

What you can even imagine.

You cannot conceive of it.

It will make you realize

That your former ideas

Were either hopelessly false

Or greatly inadequate

To address

The real situation in your life.

That is why

You must have humility

And receive correction

Without abusing yourself.

You must allow your life

To be reshaped by Knowledge

Without trying

To reshape it yourself.

It is such a different

Way of being.

It is such a different relationship

With yourself

And others.

It is the beginning

Of a greater life

For you.

 

May God shine upon you

And call you

Out of your troubled dreams

Out of the shadows

Of the past

Out of the misery

Of the present.

 

Pray for this

But in the meantime

Prepare yourself

By being truly honest

About your situation

Your engagements

Your involvements

And your commitments.

 

You cannot be passive

Regarding this great calling.

You must build the foundation.

You must make the effort.

You must have the courage.

You must take the risks

For this will make you strong

And powerful

In the world

And show you

Where the strength

Of your integrity

And courage

Resides.

 

This day

Hear these words

For they come

From the Source of all life.

Prepare for the Messenger in the world

For it is very likely

That you have a destiny

With him.

Understand

You are living

At a Time of Revelation

And that has a great deal to do

With what has happened

In your life

And your deeper inclinations

For the future.
