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

Greetings All –
Step 142 - I will be
consistent today. (MP3)[Open in Drive or copy to

“I will be consistent
today.” Step 142
PRACTICE CONSISTENTLY TODAY regardless of what is occurring
within you or without. This consistency represents a Greater Power within you. This
consistency will give you certainty and stability in the face of all
disturbances, in the face of all external events and in the face of all
emotional states within you. This consistency will stabilize and balance you
and in time will bring everything into right order within you. You practice
consistency so that you may learn it and experience it. As you do this, it will
bestow upon you the empowerment that you will need to be a contributor in this
THEREFORE, TODAY PRACTICE CONSISTENTLY. Practice
upon the hour, reminding yourself to be consistent. In your two meditations, practice
keeping your mind steady and focused, allowing it to settle into itself so that
it may experience its own nature. Do not repress what is occurring within you.
Do not control what is occurring without. Simply maintain consistency, and all
things will find a right balance and relationship to this. Thus, you are
bringing forth Knowledge into the world, for Knowledge is entirely consistent. This
will render you a person of great presence and power. Others will come to
experience your consistency in time as it is more fully received by you and
more fully developed. They will find refuge in your consistency, and this will
remind them of their purpose as well, which waits to be discovered.
PRACTICE 142: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly
practice consistency so that you may learn it and experience it. As you do
this, it will bestow upon you the empowerment that you will need to be a
contributor in this world.”
built environment of the city, here a bridge across the Chicago River, is
engineered to be consistent. Wherever we go each day, be it to work or school,
or at home caring for others, we need to be reliable; consistent. We can see
ourselves in that picture, benefitting from the workers throughout history who
have given us what is good and useful today.
Regions – have the potential to be networked – they are local networks –

The sky is blue, the sun shines
brightly – it is Sunday – why must I go to the office?
Somehow I’ve got to simplify the
work/my life in order to practice. I get ideas – I want to bring them through
and make them public.
Organization…the key to manifestation.
We already sit upon/co-exist with eons worth of organization which the
spiritual and physical have given us.

GCW-I – 22 – escaping suffering
Things making me unhappy:
1. Don’t have the staff I need at PDC.
2. Training takes a long time.
3. I don’t have the right
motivation/discipline/time to write.
4. The fear that drove my stock market
decisions is making me unhappy.
5. I still don’t have a system for
ordering info & resources.

am I doing? Really?
At 11:45 A.M. → I’m pruning away the unnecessary and
focusing. I’m learning more about relationships and acting even more to
encourage all other children of God.

practice. I’m at work. …

the day. “I will be confident this day.” – Why not?
Here, the narrative continues. Some insight, plus a
burden of idealism, one I felt then, but did not understand as a burden.
Ultimately it gets resolved. Your journal entries may consider greater or
lesser burdens on any given day. Empowerment is promised in Step 142. Let’s
work towards that.

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.
