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 135 - I will not
define my destiny today.
LIKE YOUR PURPOSE, YOUR DESTINY remains beyond your definition.
You need only take a step in its direction to feel the growing presence of
Knowledge in your life. The closer you are to Knowledge, the more you will
experience it. The more that you experience it, the closer you will want to
become because this is a natural attraction. This is true love, the attraction
of like to like. This is what gives the universe all of its meaning. This is
what joins life together completely. Be free this day of definitions, and allow
your mind to take its natural formation. Allow your heart to follow its natural
course. Allow Knowledge to express itself through your mind, whose outward
structure is now becoming open and free.
REMIND YOURSELF OF YOUR PRACTICE UPON THE HOUR. In
your two deep meditations today, continue with your RAHN practice, speaking the
word RAHN on each exhale. Allow yourself to feel the presence of your own life,
the presence of your Teachers and the depth of your own Knowledge. Allow your
self-discipline to be exerted meaningfully today, to engage your mind in this
way. For as the mind is brought into proximity of its true destination, it will
respond accordingly and everything will follow its natural course. Then you will
feel that Grace is with you.
PRACTICE 135: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly
The world offers many ways for us to choose our
destiny, as show in the picture. Today’s Step suggests we stay free agents.
was full of spirit Saturday and wake up spiritless this morning. Not having
lost faith, but energy to do. The world @ 607 Midland Ave is quiet and
beautiful. The house sparkles. The sky is blue and morning sun bright – a
perfect, quiet peace. …

a.m. This is the perfect thought for me today. Techno Christmas is upon us.
Time for a contrarian response. Well – I’ve been in cash for a year. I’m
looking a lot, but not buying much.
p.m. Home from shopping - … Driving to Winchester experiencing the Shenandoah
Valley as I do – and thinking of my life serving the Valley the opposite
thought reflected, that the Valley served me, a region of the earth which also
serves. Physicality gives itself totally to service – whereas man does not. Are
there greedy animals or plants that take more than they need? Perhaps a few –
but the majority not for they have no pockets. Insects can stockpile - and
hibernating animals store fat for their sleep, but … none others come to mind.
GCW says – plants and animals all give their all – all the time.

Step 134.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.
