YOU HAVE COME INTO THE WORLD at a great turning point, a turning point only part of which you will see in your own lifetime. It is a turning point where your world gains contact with the worlds in its vicinity. This is the natural evolution of humanity, as it is the natural evolution of all intelligent life in all worlds.Steps to Knowledge, Step 190
What a year this has been! And it’s only September. The novel coronavirus will mark 2020 as a turning point, for better or worse, on the journey to becoming a unified race with the resilience to stand strong in a Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe. A good number of us are still expecting things to return to normal, not seeing how this event has exposed the fragility of institutions we expected to be as reliable as the sun coming up in the morning. Others are not so optimistic and doubt any possibility of future human evolution.
Few among us can see how this relates to the extraterrestrial presence on Earth at this time. Many, however, feel something that they can’t quite identify, something important, unknown but somehow familiar that is waiting for them.
Your future is and will be in the Greater Community. It is not associated with the past. It is new. It is about the present and the future. The future is coming towards you, over the horizons of your life. You can see this if your vision is developed. You can feel this if you are aware of what you feel. You can gain your strength if your mind can become focused and unified.Living The Way of Knowledge, Chapter 6: The Pillar of Spiritual Development
Between the polarities of the optimism that says “all is well and all will be well” and the pessimism that anticipates an end to human evolution, there is a third way of viewing the future of human existence. This view does not draw foregone conclusions based on past expectations, yet neither does it discount how dire the outcome should current trends continue.
This fresh way of looking at this crucible of our human existence is informed by norms completely beyond our own experience, a view from beyond Earth that sees our development in the context of the evolution of other races in the universe who have gone through what we are going through. This perspective informs us that humans are not the first race to reach this point in their evolution.
You are following an evolutionary pattern that has been traveled countless times before by countless races in the universe. As nations grow and begin to technologically become more sophisticated and advanced, they begin to outstrip their world’s resources. They begin to overwhelm what their planet can provide and sustain. They believe that technology is wondrous and can solve all of these problems and mitigate all the consequences of the damage that they have done.
There is intervention in the world today from races who are here to take advantage of the situation. They are cold and calculating. They see their opportunity. They know that humanity is following this pattern, and that it is entering a period of grave vulnerability and instability. This is a perfect environment to cast persuasion and to establish influence.
As people in the world lose faith in their governments and institutions, they will turn to other powers in the universe to guide them and to save them. It is the ideal environment for intervention. It is part of the great upheaval that people do not see.The Upheaval (March 25, 2011)
This perspective is sober and realistic. It is profoundly different from all others. It warns us of what is ahead and provides what is needed for humans to evolve as a viable race among others in the universe.
This perspective comes to us through the work of one individual who himself is a crucible, a bridge connecting a vast network of relationships here on Earth and beyond. This individual, Marshall Vian Summers, models for us the new way of being that represents the next step of human evolution. If there is to be a future for the human race, it will embody the awareness, insight and dedication evinced by this perspective that is new only to us on Earth but ancient in the universe.
