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

with me. Step 58
WE AFFIRM THE PRESENCE OF KNOWLEDGE in your life. Upon each hour claim this
affirmation and then take a moment to attempt to feel this presence. You must
feel it. You cannot conceive of it alone, for Knowledge must be experienced. In
whatever circumstance you find yourself in today, repeat this affirmation once
upon the hour and attempt to feel its meaning. You will find that there are
many situations that you thought were inappropriate for practice where you can
practice. In this way, you will find that you have the power to govern your experience
to meet your true inclinations, and you will find that any circumstance is an
adequate environment for true preparation and self-application.
TO PRACTICE EACH HOUR. Remain conscious of your time. If an hour is missed, do
not worry, but rededicate yourself to practice in the remaining hours as you
proceed. Knowledge is with you today. Today be with Knowledge.
58: Hourly practice.
To help with the hourly
practice, a chime on your watch, smart phone or computer helps.

From the Journal:
S2K today is Step 57 - Freedom
is with me. I had a short meditation at Chapel. The
realization is that as spirit, we bring freedom with us. It is the earth spell
that takes it away.

You maybe considering your career work relative to Steps to Knowledge, or at a stage when you are deciding upon your work path. The New Message is very practical in terms of having work to support yourself, work that is unlikely to be your needed field. Such musing can be journaled. Let us continue.
2nd Time Step 57.This 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.
