This is a spiritual practice. It has been given to Humanity so it might be able to respond to the growing planetary necessity for Human Unity and Cooperation. We are encouraged to undertake Steps to Knowledge. This site is a simple aid to introduce people to this practice. There is much more to learn for anyone who becomes a student. As a Steps student since June 27, 1999, I am a witness for its benefit. Tom Christoffel

world is emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds and that is why I have
come.” Step 190
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. Your world is seeking a
Greater Community. This will require that your world’s own internal community
become unified. This is also a part of the evolution of all intelligent life in
all worlds. You have come here to serve this. There are many levels of service
and many things that need to be contributed—on a personal, on a community and
on a world level. You are part of this great movement of life, for you are not
here for your own purposes alone. You are here to serve the world, and thus be
served in return.
TODAY IN YOUR TWO LONGER PRACTICE PERIODS,
investigate the idea for the day. Give it serious thought, observing those
ideas that are in harmony with it and those ideas that disagree with it.
Examine your feelings both for and against this idea. Examine your preferences,
your prejudices, your beliefs, your hopes, your fears, and so forth. This constitutes
the first half of each practice period. In the second half, enter stillness and
silence, using the word RAHN if you find it to be helpful. Remember that both
of these mental activities are necessary and complementary, as you shall learn
in the future. Upon the hour repeat the idea for today. Allow it to provide
that which you need to see the world in a new way.
Earlier this evening. I am benefiting from S2K. The email responses from Ellen

is the only way” sense in their answers. That had me picture Unseen Ones

certainly believe in an unseen dimension from which thoughts and ideas come,
but the messages are often conflicting. Obviously there are limitations in
language, symbolism, hearing and receiving. All that aside, no one really tells
the same story – so I conclude there is as much confusion on that side as there
is here. Where do new souls come from?

available to every soul. Knowledge has always been at work in the universe and
in this world. S2K is a method of increasing contact. It is a more current

Another exploratory day. Am I 100% with the
teaching? No, some skepticism is evident. That is OK. I’ve included the image
that I referred to in my journal. It is a card published by my sister’s company
in Colorado. The other important information is included. Native American
spirituality evidences Knowledge in its teachings, as do the other historic
religions. Each people had prophets and messengers inspired by the Angelic
Let us continue. It is okay to be skeptical.

is for those who have completed Steps once. Doing Steps with only the texts,
messages and your life experience, including what you may have studied and
practiced is your journey. I’m showing Step comments after the Step, so as not
to influence you in advance. It is a wilderness trek to be left to your own
wits, but then you can also listen more closely for guides, angels and
teachers, always first saying: “I surround and protect myself with the Love and
the Grace of God.” Thankfully, I was taught this practice in 1989.
P.S. If you’ve some interest due to this or other
Steps, you should go to the beginning blog post. From here you will learn about Steps to Knowledge
and can begin it on the day that makes sense; then progress as needed. You can
use the posts on this blog as a companion if it helps. They will remain in
order in the archives - one post per Step.
Often it takes 18 months to get through the Steps
once. For this blog, the pace is one-a-day, but it really makes no difference
how fast you do it, only that you begin, persist and repeat. Posts here provide
a trail that may let you have a virtual companion when and if you want one. One
may have to study alone, as I did in the beginning. There are other Steps
students blogging their experience and you might find a person more like you as
a companion, or use a number of such Steps journeys. There are options as well
through the Free School of the New Message.
