This is about my soul's journey on Humanity's Planet - Earth, which began in body in the year 1946. The journey over land and sea led to encountering Greater Community Spirituality in 1997, becoming a student of Steps to Knowledge in 1999 and continuing on to the wider study of The New Message From God, brought to Humanity by The Messenger, Marshall Vian Summers. The purpose is to share my experience as a beginning student of Knowledge. - Tom Christoffel

The Greater Community is in the world. Continuation Training Step 9
The Greater Community is in the world. CT Step 9 (MP3)
The Greater Community is in the world. CT Step 9
Forces from the Greater Community are in the world.
This can be known. This can be felt. Perhaps you are feeling it already or have
felt it in the past. The world's emergence into the Greater Community is well
underway, but who can respond to it? Who can understand what it means or what
its implications are? In developing your relationship with the world and your
relationship with Knowledge, you must come to understand the condition of the
world that you have been sent to serve. Knowledge understands this, but the
personal mind, having been built upon fear and preference, cannot see this yet.
Therefore, what is obvious escapes the attention of nearly everyone, and what
is imaginary seems to be highly agreed upon. At this point, it is important to
remember that Greater Community forces are in the world, and you must come to
learn what this means for you.
In your practice in stillness, let this awareness
naturally emerge, which it naturally will do over time. In your hourly
practices, try to be attentive to where you are and to what is happening. And
today take time to consider today's lesson. Perhaps it does not conform with
your ideas. Perhaps it does. Perhaps you have experienced it directly. Perhaps
you have not. But if you become attentive, you can realize that the condition
of your world has changed, and part of this change is the presence of other
forms of intelligent life here. Become still and over time this will become
very clear to you.
30-minute stillness practice.
Picture: This ET looking statue was at the Hidden
Treasures shop on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. We headed up that road from the
Pacific Ocean Highway, heading south to Malibu from Santa Monica during a visit
to California. It may have been a movie prop, but here it was in an artfully
arranged collection of modern civilization’s artifacts. I took several
pictures. ET representations are all over the commercial world today. ET is a
joke. Steps does not consider that either a knowledgeable or wise approach.

Note: If you’ve some interest, but this is the
first time you’ve seen 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. Begin at
If you do know about Steps, but have not done Steps
twice completely, read the related materials, and have a sense of the direction
of this study, you won’t get the experience.The Introduction begins:
“This is the Steps
to Knowledge Continuation Training. It is designed to build upon the Steps
that were learned in Steps to Knowledge to
enable you to experience the grace, the power and the direction of Knowledge in
your life and to become an expression of Knowledge in everything that you do.
If you have completed the book, Steps to
Knowledge, twice through and have followed the instructions as they were
given without altering the curriculum in any way, then you are now ready to
begin this more advanced study”.
If you are an independent student, that is
certainly an option. 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.
