While we all value our individuality and emphasize it greatly in ways that we are conscious of and even unconscious of, it is what we hold in common that is the most important thing…our deeper nature. Who we were before we came into the world, who we will be after we leave this world, represents our deeper nature, the eternal part of us, not the part that is a product of culture and everything that happens to us here down on the ground on Earth.
Therefore, the more that you really develop spiritually, the closer you come to this deeper nature, if you are doing good work. If you are doing the real work to get down to who you are and why you are here, down to what we call Knowledge—the deeper Mind, your deeper nature—then you find that it is what is similar between you and another, and between you and all people, [that] becomes really the emphasis.
It’s not what makes you special or unique or distinguished. These kinds of things begin to fall away on the true path because you are escaping insecurity—personal insecurity, the need to be special, the need to have recognition, the need to be somebody, the need to garner approval from people whose approval you seek. All these kinds of things begin to fall away gradually, naturally, because you are emphasizing what is essential, what really matters, which is connected to your real nature: who you are, why you are here and who sent you.
So in taking the journey to Knowledge, the Steps to Knowledge, this deeper Intelligence within us, we’re coming back to what unites us with people, not what distinguishes us. Beyond culture, beyond religion, beyond ideology, beyond race, beyond economic or social position. Where is the real connection happening? That then becomes the emphasis. That’s what you are looking for now, more than what makes people stand out, more than what makes you stand out, the things that culture celebrates in the individual: their uniqueness, their talent, their special gifts, their good appearance.
So the more we advance here in The Way of Knowledge, the more we become alike. Not totally alike, not identical because we still have our unique features and way of thinking. But alike enough that we can unite with people who are very different from us because what is alike within us becomes ever greater and more significant. What unites us is how we are alike, not how we are different. If differences between us are what are emphasized, then real collaboration, real union in relationship, real peace between nations and religions becomes the thing you seek for but can never find—always elusive, always beyond your reach. It is what unites us: what really matters in life, who we really are, why we were sent. We were all sent by the same Source. We’re all in the world for a higher purpose waiting to be discovered if we can escape the surface of our mind, our socially-conditioned mind, and enter the deeper realms of our inner experience. It is in these deeper realms that what is alike between us becomes the emphasis and the reality.
You accept the differences in people and their behavior and manner of being, but something more important is emerging now that makes us more alike than different from one another. And this is where true connection, true relationship and true union with other people become really possible.
What matters in living in the world is stability and service and inspiration, problem solving, destiny—things of this nature, all of a higher order, not products of personality or the desire to be unique and special and separate. These are all the product of what unites people, gives them the opportunity to relate to each other at a deeper level where real meaning and value become evident.
Therefore, seek in others what is the same: the same needs, the same deep yearning of the soul, the same aspirations that are fundamental to life, the same desire to give, the same need to make a difference in the world, to contribute something of value to others, the same need to discover your deeper nature and your higher purpose for being in the world. And in so doing begin to remember your Ancient Home and those who sent you here, for they are watching over you, even now.
Am I still evolving even though I’m not meditating right now and even tho I’ve been smoking canabis off and on?
This is absolutely beautiful and in perfect timing for this world! We are headed towards New Levels Of Evutuonary Growth! Don’t let people discourage you with lies of dispair and doom! Progress is the Nature of Existence, and The Light Will Always Consume.
Barely six weeks since I moved that mouse and clicked on the MVS video so you could hardly even call me a student of the New Message or Steps to Knowledge. I read the New Revelation and STK and wonder why, why, why. Why should I restrain myself and not pass this message onto my children, I read the explanation why I should not and cannot argue with the reason given, but what if I drop dead tomorrow, what if knew this and did not pass this onto my children before I died. Yes I know they will receive it when they search or when they are ready but this too important to take a risk like this so rightly or wrongly I forwarded your email to them both and asked that they register download STK to their desk tops and if and when they have a need to read it at least it will be there. Apart from doing nothing what else could I do? By the way the children are 44 and 36 years of age

Thanks we all need to be reminded. Nasi Novare Coran
Yes, our differences, no matter how diverse, are limited. What unites us, God, the Truth of our Being, is
Knowledge teaches that our greater work is unlearning, getting naked with oneself, which is a gradual relinquishing of the illusions of life. Illusion represents all that has been foisted upon us as reality since day one. Yes it’s all illusion, and it’s guile is ever increasing in today’s world, cleave to that which is nature in all its splendor and magnificence and every virtue that supports the edification and uplifting of all men and women. Herein obfuscation ceases to exist.
We are here for purpose, taking the steps to knowledge will serve that purpose completely and remember that all of the confusion that exists in our world simply demonstrates it’s absence and henceforth it’s great need. People live their lives in just 2 ways, with Knowledge or without knowledge.
This is a seminal time in the history of human development, clearly humans must set their shallow differences apart and unite under that which we share in common. Profoundly what we share in common is the part of us that’s eternal. Love and blessings
I am part of a Greater Force for good in the world..
THIS IDEA, THEN, MUST BE APPROACHED PROPERLY. You must realize the limitations of a separated point of view and not attempt to judge the value of this day’s idea. You cannot judge it. You can only respond to it or deny it because its truth is greater than your current interpretation. Recognizing your current limitations in this regard gives you access to greatness, for without protecting that which weakens you, you may find your way to that which strengthens you and gives you purpose, meaning and direction.
YOU ARE PART OF A GREATER FORCE FOR GOOD, …… for this force is joined and directed by Knowledge. Knowledge here is beyond what any individual can own. Therefore, there is no “your” knowledge and “my” knowledge; there is only Knowledge. There is only your interpretation and my interpretation, and in this there can be discrepancies, but Knowledge is Knowledge. It leads people together; it takes people apart. If it is truly comprehended from stillness and objectivity, its true direction can be discerned and followed.
TAKE STRENGTH TODAY AS YOU REPEAT THIS IDEA upon the hour. Know that all of your efforts on behalf of Knowledge are supplemented by those who practice with you—those whom you can see and those whom you cannot see. In your deeper practices allow your own self-discipline, which prepares you to enter into stillness and peace, to be supplemented as well. Thus, your accomplishment today will supplement the efforts of all others who practice, those who are unlearning the false and those who are learning the true along with you.

Mavran Mavran Conay Mavran: “… calls upon those who practice Knowledge with you in the Greater Community so that the strength of their undertaking and their great achievements may embellish all of your attempts and all of your practices as a student of Knowledge.Today’s invocation engages your mind with all minds which are engaged in the reclamation of Knowledge in the universe”

“”For humanity to become unified, individuals must become unified, within themselves and with other people.
This is how a new fabric of unity is established.
The great tapestry of life is woven strand by strand, person by person.
Do not think another will do this for you. Do not think such great things are only left up to people who are great, who are heroes or heroines, for this is your responsibility. This is your calling—not to gain spiritual immunity, not to become all knowing or all powerful, but to join your mind with other minds in Knowledge, to become stronger than you are or ever could be as an individual.
The Greater Community is made up of communities. That which is powerful in the Greater Community is communities.
Your mind alone, no matter how developed, cannot contend with a community mind. That is why we teach the Four Pillars of life, so that you have the basis for learning how to join with others—genuinely, truthfully, honestly, effectively.
We do not send you off on your solo pursuit for spiritual enlightenment. We bring you into the world and teach you how to engage with others and join with others to bear fruit here within the world.”

As we are all coming into more intimate contact with our fellow humans of all different races, backgrounds, cultures, it is so vitally important that we seek to find what unites us- what we hold in common…such an important teaching for the times we are entering…
Thank you Messenger Marshall Vian Summers.
” alike not different” Really this teaching is needed Korea and Japan for both countries to unity.
Yes, a beautiful way to live. The only way I want to live. ” seek in others what is the same: the same needs, the same deep yearning of the soul, the same aspirations that are fundamental to life, the same desire to give, the same need to make a difference in the world, to contribute something of value to others, the same need to discover your deeper nature and your higher purpose for being in the world. And in so doing begin to remember your Ancient Home and those who sent you here, for they are watching over you, even now”
Thank you, Marshall. What really matters is what unites us. May humanity come to know this.
Beautiful, timely and needed. Thank you Marshall.
