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

“Relationships will come
to me when I am prepared.” Step 130
WHY STRIVE FOR RELATIONSHIPS IN THE WORLD when genuine
relationships will come to you as you are prepared? To understand this, you
must have great faith in the power of Knowledge within yourself and within
others. As this awareness grows, the basis for your striving and desperate
pursuits will fall away, making true peace and accomplishment possible for you.
INDIVIDUALS WILL COME TO YOU through mysterious
means because you are cultivating Knowledge. As you have relationships with one
another on a personal level, you also have relationships on the level of
Knowledge. It is this level that you will begin to experience, in small
increments at first. Eventually, if you pursue your preparations appropriately,
this experience will grow and become quite profound for you.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO SEEK FOR RELATIONSHIPS. You need
only give yourself to your preparation and have confidence that people will
come to you when you need them. This will require that you assess your needs in
contrast to your wishes. If your wishes do not represent your genuine needs,
then you will confuse your life terribly. You will place a burden upon yourself
and upon those with whom you are engaged that can only oppress them, and you as
well. Without this oppression, people will be free to come to you as you truly
REMIND YOURSELF OF THIS UPON THE HOUR TODAY, and in
your two longer practice periods allow your mind to enter receptivity. Allow
yourself to feel the presence of your Teachers. Do not exacerbate yourself with
desires for relationship and your requirements for individuals or for what they
may possess. Have confidence today that Knowledge will draw all people to you
as you truly need them.
PRACTICE 130: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly

a.m. I have lots of work I must do, and many distractions. I am greatly drawn
to GCW and am coming to accept this path to Knowledge.
a.m. My vitality comes from making the region work. It is risky – few see …
Until something else emerges, this is my path.
p.m. Ready for meditation #2 today. At work – I did what I could. A good talk
with…Director of the ICPRB.… There is plenty of work, but the real problem is
lack of awareness, lack of policy. The fragmented local policies must converge
to rebuild a whole perspective. This is greater community work.
p.m. My region is with me. I am with my region. S2K “My Teachers are with me. I
will be with them.”
entries this day. Let us continue.

Step 129.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.
