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

today.” Step – 146
YOUR TEACHERS, WHO ARE MYSTERIOUS and who live
beyond the visible, abide with you while you are in the world. Now that you
have begun the steps towards the reclamation of Knowledge, their activity in
your life will become stronger and more evident. You will begin to give your
attention to this, and their need for you to develop will be greater, as your
need for them will be greater.
UPON THE HOUR AND IN YOUR TWO LONGER PRACTICES, remember
your Teachers and actively think about them. Honor your Teachers, then, for
this proclaims that your ancient relationships are indeed alive and are present
now to give you hope, certainty and empowerment. Honor your Teachers so that
you may experience the depth of your own relationship with them. In your
relationship with your Teachers is the spark of memory that reminds you of your
Ancient Home and of your true destiny. Honor your Teachers so that you may be
honored, for it is your honor that you must reclaim. In spite of whatever
errors you have committed, it is your honor that you must reclaim. If this is
done truly, it will be done in humility and simplicity, for as you honor
yourself, you honor the greatness of life, of which you are a small but

posts on my phone and PC has saved some wear, but the book has been flattened
and stretched for photographs. To flatbed scan the pages, I would have had to
cut the binding! Thus the page picture quality varies based on time of day or

Journal second time x2 Step 145.[general link at time of publishing]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

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.
