An Afterglow Account from Patricia Summers:
The Messenger Marshall Vian Summers receives
“The Great Coordination”
on October 25, 2016, in Boulder, CO
Marshall Vian Summers on ‘Errors in Understanding the Great Coordination.’
October 28, 2016
A Message to the Worldwide Community of the New Message:
First of all, special thanks to all of you who have found The New Message from God and who are reading this communication. We here at The Society for the New Message want you to be the first to know that a mere few days ago, Marshall Vian Summers, the man who has spent over 30 years of his life receiving the largest body of Divine Revelation ever, was called again.
On Tuesday, October 25, 2016, the expansive teaching, The Great Coordination, was received.
To bring you closer to this historic event, I would like to provide the following account. Here also you will be the first to read and consider some of the passages from this latest revelation, as well as hear Marshall’s first words upon emerging from his state of revelation.
It is late Autumn at the home of the New Message here in Boulder, Colorado in the United States. On Tuesday morning of this week, Marshall came to me asking that Reed, our son, and I join him. “I am being called.” Marshall looked me and paused, “Can you help me?”
Within a short time, all seemed ready. Marshall, in his place of revelation, sat profoundly still, eyes closed, arms supported and his hands and fingers arched over the small recording device on a firm pillow on his lap. Reed and I sat across from him, waiting for what might happen next. Marshall seemed to hardly know we were there. Already he was deep in the process of establishing his connection to the Angelic Assembly, the connection that has brought into the world every revelation of the New Message from God.
Just a few moments passed, then suddenly, as if a bolt of electricity struck and ran through him, his entire body jolted. He exclaimed, “Oh!” He settled back down and still with eyes closed and hands poised, a second shock went through him. “Oh, wow,” he said with a great sigh.
Within moments, the Voice of Revelation began to speak. The following select passages represent just a small portion of the revelation received over a 38-minute period that day.
Therefore, take a moment now before proceeding. Prepare yourself to experience the vision brought to us by this revelation: The Great Coordination.
Beyond what your senses can report, what your eyes can see and your ears can hear, there is a Greater Coordination in the world and in the universe at large—a Great Coordination, the Work of God in the universe, working through layers of servants and representatives.
It is something you must feel, deeply, this Presence, and this abiding sense that your life is really for something greater than what you have become accustomed to and what your culture promotes within you and what you have come to believe…a Greater Coordination that has brought you into the world for a higher purpose, a Greater Coordination that you cannot define and you can never fully understand…
… for you live two lives. You live a life in the mundane world that preoccupies you 99 percent of the time and you live as part of this Greater Coordination, which you may glimpse for moments here and there…But the Coordination lives within you at a deeper level, beneath the surface of your mind, beneath your social mind, your worldly mind that has been so conditioned and shaped by your experiences in the world, by the decisions and the conclusions you have made for yourself.
Deep within you is a sacred mind, a mind created by God, a mind we call Knowledge, a mind that is connected already to the Great Coordination. For Knowledge represents your connection to God. But it also represents your purpose for being here, a purpose you have not invented for yourself, a purpose that you do not yet understand…For Knowledge represents the part of you that is eternal. But it is here on a mission, you see. It has a greater purpose for being in the world, which represents your greater purpose. Beyond all your goals and plans, or what you think life requires of you, this greater purpose, this Greater Coordination, is within you.
While you seek union in relationships, so hopelessly, while you seek to fulfill yourself in the world, so hopelessly, while you seek to meet the deeper need of your soul by acquiring people, places, possessions, everything, or keeping yourself stimulated at all times, what will really satisfy you and fulfill you and return you to your true relationships in the universe is the Greater Coordination itself. It will always be mysterious, for you can only grasp your small part of it and how it might relate to certain important people you might be fortunate to meet in your journey here on Earth.
The Higher Powers are directing those individuals who at the highest levels represent the Networks of the Wise: unique individuals in small groups operating usually in secrecy in the Greater Community, for there are very few free worlds that would accept them and support them. The Network of the Wise, who respond to a greater directive from above, directing their activities, their skills—superseding their human nature, or the nature of whoever they are in the universe. And they have their supporters and their assistants, who protect them, who guard them, who carry out their directives in the world, who support their activities.
It is a perfect Plan, but it must function in a changing and unpredictable reality, ever adapting itself to changing circumstances, unexpected events. For the Wise in any world cannot foresee everything, nor understand the meaning of all things.
The Higher Powers need this Network of the Wise as their representatives down here on the ground. The Higher Powers must oversee many greater things and cannot be involved in the details of daily life.
It is God’s Plan to keep Knowledge alive in this world in enough individuals to guide humanity through the dangerous events to come, through the great decline of your world, through your contact and dangerous encounter with forces from the universe who are here to take advantage of humanity. God’s Plan is to ignite Knowledge in enough people here in the world through God’s New Revelation for the world, to steer humanity in a positive direction and to keep Knowledge alive, a light that has gone out in so many places in the universe…
It is an education you are only now beginning to have because God is throwing open the doors of the universe to teach you about life in the universe and the work of God in the universe. Never before has this been revealed to humanity…
You are preoccupied with yourself, with your needs, your issues, your fears, your desires, your predicaments, and this keeps you from experiencing the power of the Greater Coordination within your life. And indeed, you cannot simply believe that it is going to take care of everything for you, as if you are a witless person who must be directed in all things. This will hardly be the case. You must become strong and determined, competent and responsible in all things, or the Greater Coordination will remain in the background and your haphazard life will continue…
What we are presenting here today requires a great preparation…and that is why through God’s Revelation for the world, the Steps to Knowledge have been given, the ancient preparation in the restoration of individuals…It is a miracle of untold significance that you have such a preparation now…
Do not think that your faith in the Divine is sufficient if you will not prepare, if you will not take these Steps to Knowledge, if you will not reform your life and allow it to be shaped by the Great Coordination that lives within you…
This is the Revelation that you have been waiting for, but you are uncertain if you will take it on, to accept its challenge and its gift and its promise.
This is your ambivalence, which weakens you and keeps you from clearly seeing the path you must follow and the work you must do and the decisions you must make.
The Great Coordination, which extends far beyond this world…reaches all the way down inside of you to the most sacred and essential part of you. You are already wired in to this great assistance, you see. It is created by God. It is overseen by the Higher Powers. It is carried out through the Networks of the Wise and all of their many assistants and supporters….You cannot account for it all. You cannot account for all the work of the Great Coordination. You cannot yet account for it even within yourself. You are just beginning that journey.
You must face your condition very squarely, very objectively, very honestly to see the need for Knowledge within your life. It is a great reckoning.
Here your suffering can serve you, if you can face it honestly, without self-condemnation. Here it brings you to your need for God, your need for Knowledge, your need for purpose and real meaning in life, your need for a Greater Coordination. Heaven is waiting for you to reach out honestly, deeply. You must send the sign to the Higher Powers that you are ready to have your true life restored.
But Heaven is waiting for you to reach the point of great sobriety where you realize that you are not really living the life you are meant to live…a great turning point in your life where you can begin the return to your true relationships and true purpose for being here.
The prayer for you is: ‘Let me be of service so that I may give, for in the end, it is all about simple service.’
God is aware of your world, but the greater Network of the Wise and the Higher Powers are at work everywhere, in ways far beyond human understanding…
Hear Our words. Listen to them again and again. Comprehension will come in time with repetition.
Your heart will know if you can follow this. Deep within you there are greater powers and forces at work. This is what you must discover. This is the great challenge and meaning of your life.”
After the Voice of Revelation ceased, Marshall sat motionless.
Some moments later, still enveloped, he began to speak of his experience.
Reed recorded Marshall in these first moments after Revelation in a state I call the “Afterglow”—or as the Messenger puts it, “As the embers of the light of Revelation recede ever upward.”

Later that day, the following text message went out to the members of The Society:
Today was a day of revelation.
I am writing here to let you know that this morning Marshall received a stunning revelation entitled, ‘The Great Coordination.’
Since then we have spent the rest of the day just being with what happened.
Over the last few days, a question came up between Marshall, myself and Reed that may have prompted this important teaching and its vast perspective.
Thus the pressure has been growing over the last several days, a process of ‘build up.’
After the revelation this morning, we secluded ourselves for a bit to be with what the revelation stimulated for us.
Marshall spent the rest of the morning recovering, and then we enjoyed a splendid midday meal consisting of our garden’s October harvest. Yet really our celebration was in gratitude for the revelation itself and for its news of the existence of the ‘Network of the Wise,’ who serve throughout the universe. This is in part what ‘The Great Coordination’ has spoken of and described.
We capped the day with a rejuvenating hike up the Foothills Trail to the ridgeline above it. The farsighted perspective from up there was fitting, given the view that this important revelation provided us this day and the thought that all the revelations that comprise the New Message from God will be here for hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of years to come guiding humanity…
Thank you all for everything you are doing and for everything you have done these many years to support Marshall as he has received and now gives this Revelation to the world.
Below are images of our October breakfast prepared by myself and Reed, following the Revelation. Marshall greatly appreciates wholesome food, time with others and contact with nature after these powerful enveloping experiences of union with his Source.
The experience of what Marshall has described as the “empty concert hall” is often with him in the hours after revelation, part of the stark transition for him to make as he re-enters the world. After so many years of the Messenger receiving the Revelation alone—while I was gone long hours at work—it is so wonderful now that he is no longer alone as this is happening.
Thank you all for sharing in this important moment in time with Marshall, as the New Message from God continues to flow through him.

“I don’t just understand the New Message. I live with it. I breathe it. I think of it every day. I consider it. I listen to it. I read it. I watch it out in the world to see its application.”

Patricia Summers’ Afterglow Notes on the Process of Revelation
Thank you, Patricia, for the Afterglow account, and thank you Reed and Marshall for the video afterwards. It all brings me closer to the Messenger, his experience, and the great miracle happening in our midst at the base of the mountains.
Thank you Patricia for sharing this account with us, this auspicious moment. I am in tears reading your words and the words of the Revelation, and having this opportunity to watch Marshall speak in his state of Afterglow. It provides an ever deeper connection to this process of Revelation.
I was just thinking as I arose this morning about the latest revelation Marshall had received, wondering what it was called and when Patricia would post the Afterglow message. This was after reading in the Chat transcript for October 22, 2016 that Marshall was being called. Now I understand that the revelation does not always come immediately, the feeling that a revelation is imminent may build over a few days. Truly like labor pangs, which may begin several days before the actual birth. And I open my email to this! Thank you Patricia for this beautiful sharing, not only the excerpts from the Great Coordination, but also the recording of Marshall’s words afterwards, and the photos of your wonderful repast. Your food is my food, and all your sharing brings me closer to your experience too. The Great Coordination, yes! This is something I am feeling ever stronger in my life.It gives me immense pause for thought and brings a new fresh current of inspiration and confirmation into my life. Sending you all, Marshall, Patricia, and Reed my immense gratitude.
Thank you Patricia ,for giving this gift.Thank you Marshall, for giving your life for recieving The New Revelation for us, for our redemption. Thank you Reed, for supporting your father and this New Revelation. Thank you Society, for beeing there. Nasi Novare Coram !
“You must become strong and determined, competent and responsible in all things, or the Greater Coordination will remain in the background and your haphazard life will continue…”
Thank you Patricia for the Afterglow account and thank you Reed for the video and especially its transcript. Without it I could not have understood part of the Messenger’s word. This time it is as if I heard the Messenger sitting beside him. Thank you Marshall.
“I don’t just understand the New Message. I live with it. I breathe it. I think of it every day. I consider it. I listen to it. I read it. I watch it out in the world to see its application. I pray you will do these things as well.” MVS

I’m curious to know what you mean by competent “in all things”. Are you talking about the STK? What body of “things” are you talking about. Thanks let me know…
Thank you Patricia for the Afterglow account, and thank you Marshall for sharing your experience.
Also, Thank you Reed for providing transcript. This was very helpful for me to understand his exprience.
“I don’t just understand the New Message. I live with it. I breathe it. I think of it every day. I consider it. I listen to it. I read it. I watch it out in the world to see its application.” I will keep this deeply.

Oh, wow … thank you so much for this inspirational and moving account. I write this with overwhelming feelings of gratitude, love and profound facets of recognition and remembrance. This Revelation spoke strongly to me. My Heart is moved by this; to know of ..to witness..to feel the Great Coordination that is amplifying and expressing it’s Grace within our world, at this pivotal time in human history. Thank you dear Marshall, Patricia and Reed.
Thank you ,Patricia to let us all know.
This Revelation struck me deeply almost as the Remembrance did.
When you talk about :The existence of the Network of the Wise are you speaking of The Harim ?
Since I read about the Harim it did not realy left me.
With great gratitude to Marshall ,Patricia and Reed.
Thank you, greetings from Bosnia and Herzegovina / Europe /
Thank you so much Patricia for your diligence in graceful reception and ensuing presentation of these Revelations; particularly this, the latest, The Great Coordination, which I now feel such commitment and devotion to. The way you and Reed attend to Marshall does touch my heart and fills me with gratitude, humility and joy that you are the ones who were not only chosen; but more importantly, have responded with such poise, grace and precision.
Having just come off this week’s Chat Forum on Ambivalence, I can honestly say I have no Ambivalence over the Summers’ family, Marshall’s proclaimed status and the veracity of the NM.
Ambivalence yes, perhaps over my purpose meaning and direction or even capacity, but your are all helping with this.
I continue to advocate for it all on my Canadian radio show: The Paradigm Shift Cafe @ http://www.luradio.ca,
Fridays Eastern Standard Time 1:00-3:00pm.
Thank you Patricia for sharing this beautiful account. You mentioned you are glad that the Messenger does not have to be alone after these Revelations are given. I can only imagine how much that means to both of you – I am glad that the Messenger is not alone and you can be there now with him after a Revelation.
Immense gratitude for sharing such a profound insight into reception of “the Great Coordination.” I could hear it with my heart and feel the great truth that it expresses. A truly remarkable event and we are so deeply blessed to be here at the time of Marshall being in the world. Thank you for allowing us to witness this though the transcript and the very moving video of the afterglow. Blessings to Marshall, Reed and Patricia. Nasi Novare Coram.
Thank you Mark, Cole, Alisa, Josef, Jangsun, Insuk, Srimayi, Atalundi and Scot. I will share your responses with Marshall. He will read and consider everything you all have said here. He is recovering, today, resting…wandering a bit and allowing the events, the work and the realizations of this week to sink in. And to know he shares this process with you and others, is really meaningful to him….Thanks much as we all continue up the road to our destined contributions…and service.
Thank you, Patricia for the Afterglow of Marshall.
This is such an important part for each of us on this side of the computer screen to experience.
To get a glimpse of what Marshall experiences is so humbling for me and yet,
I feel so holy to just being allowed to see this video & read your words.
I feel that I’m given such a beautiful gift to urge me onward to continue with even more passion,
going deeper still, into the New Message from God.
I thank Creator of all Life that Marshall was sent into the world for us, to be The Messenger to bring a new reality to something much bigger and more far-reaching than what we have been experiencing here thus far. “The Great Coordination” has confirmed for me that we are TRULY not alone here.
I am honored to be a part of it.
I stand for the Messenger, in service to the Assembly & our world for whatever they both need me to do.
Dear Marshall, you can count on me to stand by you—whatever you need, just ask.
Thank you for taking on your Mission. You’re doing an awesome job from our perspective.
Thank you Reed for the photographs & video. You’re such an integral part of all of this. Thanks for all you do.
Many blessings to all engaged with the New Message from God.
“After so many years of the Messenger receiving the Revelation alone—while I was gone long hours at work—it is so wonderful now that he is no longer alone as this is happening.” My eyes have tears when I read these words. I don’t know how much Revelation is but my heart knows. Thank you Patricia and Reed what you have done for NM and Messenger. The aftergrow video makes me more closer Messenger. I want to live with NM. Thank you. NNC
A year ago Patricia narrated the story of how God’s Messages flow from Source to be found by us in Separation. It’s particularly moving to hear the mentions of Marshall’s preparation but also to realize what a Great Coordination is involved, even our preparation well-attended to. https://youtu.be/Fbr-2FNJAms?t=19m31s [at 16:00, she reads from a teaching received at that time, The Higher Authority]
WHERE IS THERE THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST? SIMPLY CURIOUS.;I AM WILLIAM BAKER OF TRUE LIFE IN GOD.
Right on. I agree with you. Lets not take an old message and deny the power that made it so… Jesus Christ
Still with us as far as I can tell… the messenger is saying he’s not coming and if he’s coming we’re it…he’s coming in and through us. That’s what I got a long time ago in my solitude…. Sure does seem like we could use some help. Things look pretty dark. I’ve found a greater light in an enhanced sense of direction in terms of what I Am serving. I’m praying for clearer more focused and viable direction as I call the allies to me. Bless…
Its a wonderful message but nothing new. I trust that having spelled out this message in your own words you will not deny the Power that made it so… Jesus Christ who sits at the right hand of God the Father.
Ana, Rich, Aileen, Hyeonam, MaryS and William,
Marshall has read your responses. He thanks you and is grateful that you have the affinity and the capacity to seek out within yourself what the experience of The Great Coordination, may mean for you. Sitting beside me here just now he said, “It is a great joy to share this growing sacred experience that we share together..”
To answer your question,” Where is there the love of Jesus Christ?”, consider reading or listening to the Voice of Revelation delivering the teaching, “Jesus and the New Message”. This occurred on April 13, 2013, and is part of the larger body of revelation, The New Message from God, that the Messenger has been receiving for over 30 years.
“For Jesus was a vehicle for the power of Knowledge, the very Knowledge that can restore you, renew you and redeem you. Though Jesus was greater than you and greater than almost anyone in the world has ever been, it was the power within him that gave him this strength, this magnificence and this lasting potency in the world… To know God, you must know the power and presence that God has placed within you, for this is the source of your redemption, whether you be a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew or of any nation and any faith. Even if you have no faith, it is the same.”
Another powerful revelation, from the New Message from God, to consider reading and/or listening to is
“Who is Jesus?”
And yet another powerful and moving revelation to read and/or listen to is
“The Great Love. ”
You can find it at:
When I read about these miraculous events, I think about all the people I know going about their “important” business, occupied with endless trivia, incessantly excited by inane pointlessness and I wonder; Can this miraculous process ever reach them? I certainly hope so, even if in some small way sufficient to for them to question what is important or realise the true state of the world around them and the situation we, and future generations are facing…I wonder and resolve to continue to do what I can to further the spread of this great revelation. Am I up to it I also wonder.
In the Greater Community, Life Force has been harnessed successfully by individuals and small groups of individuals who serve a greater network of the Wise. This network is called the Harim. This word, which is from the Septoral language, speaks of those who uphold Knowledge in all worlds.
Their purpose is not local or ambitious.
They represent a universal purpose that bonds them with others very different from themselves.
This has created an association of the Wise who are unlikely ever to encounter each other face to face in manifest life.
Nasi Novare Coram
Thank you, Ray, for this quote from the New Message book “Greater Community Spirituality.” The entire revelation can be read, here: http://www.newmessage.org/the-message/volume-2/greater-community-spirituality/what-is-life-force
Thanks a lot to the Messenger and team. I have no words to express my sincere appreciation for what I have read. I feel it is turning point in my life.
Marshall contributed these thoughts on The Great Coordination on the School Chat, Dec 2, 2017
“In life, everything that is not the Great Coordination can prepare you for the Great Coordination, if you can learn to use your experiences beneficially and objectively. The New Message will teach you how to do this, if you are attentive, determined and patient.”
“It takes considerable time just to recognize the real signs of the Great Coordination apart from your ordinary experience, before your life can become meaningfully part of it. This is the beginning of having the eyes to see and the ears to hear. This is finding the flakes of gold amongst the immense dross of our experience living in the world.”
“We have to build a new foundation in life to be able to be part of something greater. Every experience in life can help you do this if you can see things clearly—mistakes, successes, other people’s mistakes, moods, feelings, boredom—everything can be useful here. We each have to build this foundation using the materials of our life experience.”
I am so grateful and honored to be able to receive this. I am grateful for the messenger, and also very grateful he has company by his side when he is called. This is an experience like no other in this world. When I read about his reaction when he connects with The Assembly (“oh!”, “oh, wao!”), I can only imagine what he is going through. Even for him, already built up for this task, is too much. Only he knows The Power he is facing. I am grateful, and I wish him long life. NNC
I remember the first time I read and seen Marshall’s afterglow account of The Great Coordination, I thought about his dedication and the dedication of all those close to him, at the time of receiving revelations. It is a privilege to be able to witness these accounts, never before (with previous Messengers) was it made available. It is really kind of you to share it with us, so that we may glimpse and witness these accounts and also learn from the strength that stayed with you all.
In contrast. I don’t know how you do it, but glad you do. Now I know about the NM, I couldn’t imagine a life without it. Think about all those people that received The NM from God and those who are still finding the NM, how their lives been impacted, how they can know about their deeper nature, about the realm of relationships, the Greater Community, their purpose…, how in return they can help the world in its evolution. You have changed people’s lives with receiving the New Message from God in the world, how would we otherwise know about the NM?
I thank you for that, as I can see, it has not been easy for you or those close to you.Thank you Marshall, Patricia, Reed.
