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 120 - I will remember my Knowledge today. (MP3) Entry for Step 119 - Review
Greetings All –
Step 120 - I will
remember my Knowledge today. (MP3)[Open in Drive or copy to
your Drive – Download folder or play from Drive – Step PDF also.]
"I will remember my
Knowledge today." Step 120
KNOWLEDGE TODAY. Remember that it abides with you regardless of where you go or
what you are doing. Remember that it is given to you to serve you, to nurture
you and to elevate you as well. Remember that you need not be aggravated with
the world because you can accept the world as it is. Remember that you accept
the world as it is so that you will be able to give to it, for the world is
developing as you are. Remember that Knowledge is with you, and you need only
be with Knowledge to realize its full impact.
YOURSELF UPON THE HOUR TODAY that Knowledge is with you and give this a moment
of thought. Do not let raging emotions or deep depression cast a shadow upon
your practice, for your practice is greater than your emotional states, which
change like the winds and the clouds but cannot mask the universe above them.
REALIZE THE LITTLENESS OF YOUR EMOTIONAL STATES and the greatness of Knowledge.
In this way, Knowledge will balance your emotional states and will reveal to
you the source of your own emotions, which is the source of your expression in
the world. This is the mystery of life which you are now learning to explore.
8 a.m. Who as the customers for the region? Those
that use it. Build your value region – bound your necessary reality. May the
universe be your backyard – we all live at the center of our personal universe.
That center may contain our children who split off and become their own center
As souls inhabit manifestation there are more and
more relative centers.
Learn to see your region, your backyard.

Review time S2K. Instead of doing nothing productive at home – I mowed the
lawn. I’m enjoying a body w/o back pain – pinched nerve, I like this direction
– exercise will be required. On back porch it occurred to me that we/I can only
experience a tiny part/a mere fragment of this great part of creation. The
design which precedes us – the knowledge it reflects – man can hardly be the
crown of creation.
>This is the time & place to review, but I
have the wrong book. I do have the list of the Step phrases this week on a 3X5 card.
Review – beginning November 1
So, the journal entry gets us
to the Review, this time for two weeks, but nothing about it. The Steps book:
Please note that these entries are from my first
passage through the Steps, 1999-2000. What I wrote then is not the
understanding I may have today, or what you understand in your practice of
Steps, or even a guide to your understanding.
These thoughts and reactions
likely differ from yours, due to my life, my age, work and spiritual study,
relationships, etc. What will emerge is how Steps helped me through a difficult
time and came to answer important questions. For whatever reason you have begun
this practice, then let us continue.
Journal second time x2
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.
