Entering Life in the Universe

By Marshall Vian Summers

To experience a Greater Community of life in the universe, and to enter into this great arena of life, we must first reconsider God. This is the Creator of all life—not a God of the ancients; not a God of the great testaments from the past, but a God for all times and all races; not a human God; not a God that expresses our temperament and our judgments; not a God that requires worship; not a God of the tribe or the hill or the mountain or the sun or the stars, but a God beyond it all—a God of a billion, billion races and more, so great beyond our comprehension.

Yet how do we relate to a God like this, who is so vast and impersonal? As the New Revelation tells us, God speaks to the most sacred part of us, the permanent part of us, through Knowledge within us. Therefore our relationship with God is of the greatest intimacy and relevance—without intermediaries, speaking to us and to all races in the universe, who are so very different from us.

The universe that we will now emerge into, our local region of space, is an environment that we know nothing about, for which we cannot prepare ourselves, which endangers us, but also encourages us to finally establish unity in the face of adversity.

This has required a New Message from God, for none of God’s previous Revelations can prepare us for a reality on this scale, a non-human universe that is not governed by human values or ethics or human preoccupations.

Now we stand at the threshold of this vast arena of life, on a world that is valued by others, a world that we are destroying at a precipitous pace. Now we must grow up, end our ceaseless conflicts and our adolescent indulgences and prepare for this much more mature environment in order to secure human freedom and sovereignty in our world.

For we are now the natives of the new world facing intervention, and as history has taught us, intervention is an extreme hazard to the native peoples. And yet we are unprepared.

Therefore, God has spoken again to prepare us for life in the universe, to prepare us for our first encounters, to elevate us, one person at a time, one relationship at a time, everywhere in the world where people have access to the Revelation.

This is the challenge of Revelation, for this is not merely a comfort and a consolation. It is not merely to remedy us from our daily stresses and difficulties, but to pull us out of the past by giving us something greater to do.

God has given us the eyes to see, but we do not see. God has given us the ears to hear, but we do not hear—preoccupied we are with our dilemmas, our preferences and our pursuit of happiness. But we still have the eyes to see and the ears to hear. And I pray that we will know and see.

God does not care which religion we belong to, for there are billions of religions in the universe. God cares if we resonate to the power of Knowledge that has been put within us, whether we are religious or not, from any nation, rich or poor.

You can see that all religions are pathways to this Knowledge, and they can be rich avenues for us. But they know not of the Greater Community, which is the missing piece in the picture of our lives and in the future of our world and in the outcome for every one of us and our children and their children.

The universe we will face will be a great challenge, the universe where freedom is rare and must be cultivated carefully and preserved against all the forces of intervention, seduction and persuasion. The wise know this, but we are not yet wise.

Yet the Creator has put wisdom within us so that part of us is wise, and in this way we can respond to what is true, what is different and what is challenging because Knowledge within us has no fear.
We are now facing intervention in the world by races here to gain influence and control for their own needs, presenting themselves as benign and speaking to our desire for wealth, power and spiritual fulfillment, having studied us for so long.

We now as the natives of the new world must gain the wisdom that God has provided. For I tell you, people of Earth, without this wisdom, we would eventually succumb—being too weak, too fractured, too ignorant, too selfish, too obsessed with our own ideologies, beliefs and national identities. We would succumb. God knows this.

May the power and the presence of Knowledge become strong, within us and between us now, for we are living at the greatest time in history, and it is by no accident that we have come here now to be a part of this. Do not deny or disclaim this. Do not diminish yourself any further. You know not of your importance in this, for nothing else matters.

God knows what matters for you and for us and for this world. We have the promise of being a free people in the universe, but it is only a promise and not an assurance. If humanity should fail at the doorstep of the universe, everything we have created that is good will be lost. And the possibility to regain our freedom will be remote.

Do not look to others in the universe for gifts and technology. Do not fall prey to that seduction. Do not believe the statements offering power and peace and equanimity that those who are here claim, for they are here for much more mundane purposes, driven by the needs that drive us. Now the revelation given in Life in the Universe can inform us. It is not a universe of demons and angels, but of physical beings struggling to survive.

God knows what is coming over the horizon and has given us the warning and the preparation. We are blessed to receive this.

Let us receive this gift not with our intellect, which only seeks to refer everything to the past and only to reassure itself that its ideas are true indeed, but to take this into our heart and our soul, where the deeper truth is known and remains beyond the realm and reach of the intellect.

This Proclamation must go forth powerfully now. There is no more time. It is very late, and there is much to do.

About the book:

For thousands of years, humanity has looked into the night sky and wondered: who is out there? Now you have a chance to travel into that night sky, to go beyond wondering and experience for yourself the reality and spirituality of life beyond our world.

This book is a window into the living story of our universe: the realities of trade, travel and conflict in space; the birth and death of civilizations across the stars and the greater plan and purpose of a Creator who oversees the spiritual progress of life in all galaxies.
Enter a universe that is alive with danger, mystery, relationship and purpose.

Explore the unfolding narrative of life in our own region of space and learn about the struggle for freedom now occurring beyond the borders of our solar system.

Marshall Vian Summers has been engaged in a process of Revelation for over 30 years. The outcome of that revelation, this book reveals what life is really like in the universe, something human science and speculation may never fully uncover.

Much more than a book, Life in the Universe is an open doorway to a greater human experience. Unfolding before you page-by-page, is a story and a vision of the living cosmos, the complexity of interactions between worlds and the future that awaits us as we enter this larger arena of life.
Go beyond the limits of a purely human vantage point and immerse yourself in this "Greater Community," a vast universe of intelligent life that has always called to you.
