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 153 - My Source wishes to express itself through me. (MP3) Entry for Step 152 - I will not follow fear within the world.
Greetings All –
Step 153 - My Source
wishes to express itself through me. (MP3)[Open in Drive or copy to

“My Source wishes to
express itself through me.” Step 153
YOU WERE CREATED TO BE AN EXPRESSION OF YOUR SOURCE.
You were created to be an extension of your Source. You were created to be a
part of your Source. Your life is communication, for communication is life.
Communication is the extension of Knowledge. It is not merely the sharing of
little ideas from one separated mind to another. Communication is far greater,
for communication creates life and extends life, and within this is all joy and
fulfillment. Within this is the depth of all meaning. Here darkness and light
mix together and cease their separation. Here all opposites blend and melt into
each other. This is the unity of all life.
ALLOW YOURSELF, THEN, TO EXPERIENCE YOURSELF as a
vehicle of communication, and know what you truly wish to communicate will be
fully expressed as well, for the self that you genuinely are is an extension of
the Self that is life itself. In this, you will be completely affirmed and life
will be affirmed around you. Your gifts will be received and integrated by
life, for giving of this nature can only yield a greater result, beyond the
comprehension of humanity.
REMIND YOURSELF UPON THE HOUR that you were meant
to express the will of your Source. Within your two practice periods today,
allow yourself to enter stillness and peace once again. Allow yourself to be an
open vehicle through which life may flow freely, through which life may express

life is communication, for communication is life. Communication is the
extension of Knowledge.”

threat of incoming missiles and nuclear war. Fear was instilled in the home –
“What might others think?” This provided social control – so I was able to keep
a good reputation I suppose. At age 16/17 I recognized we had a fear enforced
morality – it was that obvious to me. Many years later I recognized all life as

This day the journal was nothing but the practices.
You may have written your reflections down, or kept them in your head. Looking
back, it is now ironic to read from December 16, 1999:“The economic world looks anything but fearful.” In three months, March 10, 2000, the Dotcom Crash
of the tech stock bubble will occur. The Step is: “I will not follow fear within the world.”In cases like stock and housing bubble, following the fearless can also
be a problem. Let us continue.

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.
