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
Step 206 - Love is flowing from me now. Entry for Step 205 - I will not judge the world today.
LOVE IS FLOWING FROM YOU, and today you can attempt
to experience this and to release those things that obstruct it. Without
judgment, without illusion, without fantasy and without the limitations of a
purely human viewpoint, you will see that love is flowing from you. You will
see that all your frustration in life is your inability to experience and to
express this love which wishes to flow from you. Regardless of the circumstances in which
your frustration arises, it is always
because you cannot express love. Your evaluation of difficulties and dilemmas
can certainly conceal this fact but cannot deny its existence.
UPON THE HOUR ALLOW LOVE TO FLOW FROM YOU,
realizing that you do not need to engage in any form of behavior, for love will
arise naturally from you like fragrance from a flower. In your deeper practices,
allow your mind to become still so that love may flow from you. In this, you
will realize the natural function of your mind and the greatness of Knowledge,
which is within you but is not yours to own.
DO NOT LET ANY SELF-DEPRECATING IDEAS or
self-doubts dissuade you from this opportunity today. Without your
interference, love will flow naturally from you. You do not need to put on any
pretense. You do not need to acquire any form of behavior for this to happen. Your behavior in time will represent that which flows from you naturally. Allow love to flow
from you naturally today.
PRACTICE 206: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly
Today's news gave many chances to "not judge the world." Situations in Ukraine, Gaza-Israel and more, hyper-news, call us: "DO NOT BLAME THE WORLD TODAY. It is blameless, for
it is merely demonstrating that Knowledge is not being adhered to. What else
can it do but commit error and folly?"
The journal from 2000 did not reflect such issues the day of this Step, but I am continuing forward. Thanks to the internet, I was able to find links related to references made way back then.
From the Journal:
AM At the Lemurian site – yet another perspective through Germane –
an emphatic name there. I'd always been adverse to Atlantis – and as I learned
of Lemuria – warmer to that. S2K is above the fray of the Galactic
civilizations. Can I do better – local planet regions/regions work?
AM Governance – we have plenty of governance. What is needed is cooperation
among the units of governance – and incentives for cooperation. Since politics
thrives on problems – the units which self-protect – use it to gain local
power. The citizens must demand cooperation up the chain.
interstate regions – the U.S. president should come to the table – such peace
accords are equally important as Israel – Syria or North and South Korea.
officials will never be wrong. They only protect their boundaries. From the sky
– looking at transportation networks – those disappear. People are free to move
about the planet.
humans can become self-aware of their planetary corporate vision and act upon
– I don't envision this rant having wide
circulation. I've got to develop a focus.
Wake up earth – knowledge is available.
[Map of Greater Community Beings B-1 to B-5 influencing the peoples of earth.]
after level of manifestation – there are limits/strengths/weaknesses
is the best use of my time – things that unite humanity so it can be one in the
face of separating GC viewpoints.
PM At Ed and Mary's today for their annual party. Alan White gave his
astrological forecast period. Little gloom and doom. I had notes from last year
– it hadn't been very accurate. Great focus is now on early May 3 – 5th or 14
days – April 28 – May 11 – earlier I'd set May 11 as my RW lunch date. That's
the perspective I've now gotten – the best use of my time is in structural ways
(myplanetregions) that will support the unification of humanity.

Living human here in body map – this is our living planet.
→ Which race, which culture shall dominate? None –
can there be one language? Internet English – the Esperanto of 2000 – the
language of the day.
politics is local! We have only one local planet here.
world has always been one. As the world was populated – this idea was
considered – but not widely believed. Dealing at the surface of the earth – as
populations grew – battles took place for physical control. Different
races/cultures emerged – past each with their own Gods – their own heavens.
Technology cultures dominated – or tried to. Those w/o humanity – Nazis – sell
to those with a greater tolerance for diversity.
demanded better communication systems. At the end of wars – the new systems
were in place and could speed up communication for the peaceful ones.
has grown – in
1972[earlier publication 1967-68] it could see
itself as one from its own satellite images. Now with the Internet –
communication is one.
Local boundaries remain – local being the whole of earth.
local levels – nation, state, locality have governance systems.
one earth, people wish to be free to move about the planet. The local
boundaries are barriers to free movement. They must be made as transparent as
possible – like osmosis – letting people through and leaving stuff behind.
PM I love my work. I hate my job. How do I get out? I think I've been betrayed
- I want that to end. I know I haven't begun to forgive and until I end my
judgment I will continue to put myself at risk
1:40 PM Regionalize any data set – To take the
names and addresses – towns/cities/zip code and sort by/CO/PD – the fact – for
any two people they should be able to meet within a 45 minute drive. SHOW HOW
the regions works – face time
could be a product>!
time – peer finders – chapter builder – whatever

My "love for the world will naturally be expressed."
P.S. At Step 206, we are into Part Two of Steps, so
if you’ve found this and find some appeal in this or other Steps, you should
really go to the beginning blog post. From here you learn about Steps to Knowledge and
can begin it on the day that makes sense and 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 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.
