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 have come to the world to serve.” Step 139
YOU HAVE COME TO THE WORLD TO SERVE, but first you
must receive. First, you must unlearn what you have taught yourself so that you
may reclaim that which you have brought with you. This preparation is essential
for your success and for your happiness as well. Do not think that through
understanding alone you will be able to recognize and give your true gifts. Your
participation is your preparation, for you are being prepared to participate in
life. Thus, we draw you more and more into the mystery of life and the manifestation
of life. In this way, you will be able to treat the mystery as mysterious with
wonder and you will be able to treat the manifestation of life practically and
with objectivity. With this, you will be able to be a bridge from your Ancient
Home to the manifest world. Across this bridge the Wisdom of Knowledge may
express itself, and you may find your greatest fulfillment.

great depth and concentration, and remember your idea upon the hour so that you
may utilize all occurrences today on your own behalf.
PRACTICE 139: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly
Note the challenge: “First, you must unlearn what you have taught yourself so that you may
reclaim that which you have brought with you.” This is the process underway now in the Steps. Is it to your benefit? It
was for me – that is my witness. Is life perfect? No, but it has become much

until 11:15 p.m. last night on RTOP. Today was to be the big changeover plan,
but Frederick Co. didn’t show. Lots going on… Really lean we are these days.

push the envelope; when do you end up with a new envelope?
p.m. Preparing for the second practice session. Even though this is late – I’d
not risk skipping one. That did not work Tuesday. Tomorrow I give a lecture at SU
[Shenandoah University] – don’t know which slides to use.
The journal is a place for insights, but mostly for
mundane reflections from the day. What slides should I use? Is that a question
for Knowledge? The notion of “right-brain” thinking is that problems should be
considered, then forgotten about. The brain is a computer that runs background
programs. At some point in the future the solution appears when you are driving
down the road, taking a walk or otherwise not engaged in trying to solve the
particular problem. Is Knowledge part of that invisible, but tap-able part
intuition, or is it even greater, giving what we need, when needed, if we have
ears to hear, eyes to see?

Step 138.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.
