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

"I am honored by God." Step 103
YOU ARE HONORED BY GOD, and yet this statement can
inflame your sense of uncertainty, arouse your
sense of guilt, confuse your sense of pride and stimulate all manner of
conflict that actually exists within you now. In the past you have attempted to
be something unreal, and it has failed you. Now you are afraid to be anything
for fear that failure will pursue you once again. Thus, greatness appears to be
littleness and littleness appears to be greatness, and all things are seen
backwards or reversed from their true meaning.
YOU ARE HONORED BY GOD whether you can accept this
or not. It is true regardless of human evaluation, for only things that are beyond
evaluation are true. We are taking you to that which is beyond evaluation,
which will be the greatest discovery possible in this life or in any life.
UPON THE HOUR REPEAT THIS STATEMENT and consider it
seriously. In your two practice periods, allow your mind once again to be still
and receptive so that you may learn to receive the honor that God has for you.
Surely, this honor must be directed towards a part of you that you are barely
aware of. It is not your behavior that is honored. It is not your idealism that is honored.
It is not your beliefs, your assumptions, your demands or your fears. These may
be for good or for ill. These may serve you or betray you. But honor is
reserved for something greater, which you are now learning to recognize.

Journal second time x2 Step 102. 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.
