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 259 - I have come to teach in the world. (MP3) Entry for Step 258 - Who are my friends today?
Greetings All –
Step 259 - I have come to teach in the world. (MP3)[Open in Drive or copy to

Step 259 - I have come to teach in the world.
YOU HAVE COME TO TEACH. All you have been doing is
teaching since you arrived here. Your thoughts and your behavior are the
vehicles for teaching. Even as a little child you taught and delighted and
frustrated those who loved you. Throughout every stage of your life you have
taught, for teaching is the natural function of demonstrating life. Thus, you
naturally have a teaching function. Even if you do not carry this out in any
formal sense with people, your life is a demonstration and, therefore, a form
THAT IS WHY AS YOUR LIFE BECOMES ALLIED with
Knowledge and expressive of Knowledge, your life will become the teaching
itself. Then, in whatever avenue you are directed to choose for your self-expression,
which will be genuine according to your nature, you will be able to express
your teaching in gestures great and small, in words and without words and in
accomplishments in every avenue and walk of life because you have come to the
world to teach. The world can only teach you that you need to teach the truth. That
is the world’s teaching to you. It teaches you of the great need for Knowledge,
and it teaches you of the presence of Knowledge. Thus, the world serves and supports
your true function, as you serve and support the true function of life.
REMEMBER THIS IDEA UPON THE HOUR. In your two
deeper meditation practices give yourself to thinking of this very, very carefully.
These are practices of mental engagement now. Think of the meaning of today’s
idea. Realize that you have always been teaching through demonstration. Think
of what you want to teach with your life and think of what you want to fortify
with your life. Think of what you want to give and think of what the world has
given to you to stimulate this true desire. All these things will generate
right thinking and right action, and through right thinking and right action Knowledge
will flow effortlessly through you to bless life around you and to bring
purpose, meaning and direction to your relationships.
PRACTICE 259: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly
YOUR FRIENDS TODAY ARE ALL WHO ARE RECLAIMING
Knowledge and all who have reclaimed Knowledge. Your friends tomorrow will be
all who will reclaim Knowledge. Therefore, everyone is either your friend or
will become your friend. It is only a matter of time, and time can only seem
long to those who dwell within it without purpose. But to those who dwell in
time with purpose, time moves swiftly and brings about this great result.
How does one do this? Steps to Knowledge and study
of the books of the New Knowledge Library is one way to get time to move
Knowledge Library as of September 14, 2014
The journal was not a place where much was captured
a.m. March 31, 2000 – I have a long, long way to go. I will do what is required
→ I would like to
work at the State or Federal level or in a University setting/non-profit
research setting to prove the value of regional approaches and promote the use
of structured regions by the business, citizen and governmental authorities.
The problem with regions today is that there are no boundaries.
Christoffel – that regional guy. Is Metropolitan necessarily regional?
p.m. A new day is coming April 1. I am an employee. I am free.
to Bob D--- – I'd like to get in the think tank – a research group.
the internet will continue to grow, and local government will have to take
action to invest – public infrastructure & schools; there will need to be
coordination – and a strategic geography.
Only thing today are just some struggling thoughts
about my work. Even though I have language that evokes a greater context and
perspective on the world, used the term community in an expansive way, it will
take a decade of observing, thinking, writing and study of New Knowledge Library materials of what will come to be called The New Message from God, to
come closer to an understanding of “regional/greater community” on earth for
our world. So, let us continue and remember to be patient.

Step 258.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.
