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

I wish to know my own strength. Continuation Training Step 29
You have great untapped strength waiting within
you, a greater ability that the Creator has bestowed upon you and upon each
individual. If this cannot be found, discovered and applied in life, it is a
great misfortune, both for you and for those who would benefit from it.
Therefore, we bring you back to your great
strength—-the strength of Knowledge within you. It is not your personal
strength. It is a greater strength that has been given to you. Prepare yourself
to receive it. Learn how to carry it and how to apply it in the world, and you
shall be a light in the world. You shall bring great hope into the world and
promise for the future.
Utilize this strength today in your one long
practice in silence. Do not let your mind wander. Dedicate yourself to being
present in your practice. In your hourly practice of awareness and discernment
when you are out in the world, exercise your own authority and bring this
practice to bear. Utilize this practice to gain a greater strength and wisdom,
which you need even at this moment.
30-minute stillness practice.

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.
