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

My life is a mystery to explore. Continuation Training Step 34
We continue this practice from Steps to Knowledge because it is so very true. Your life is a great
mystery. It is not simply the accumulation of your activities each day—-your
work, your hobbies, your family obligations, your tendencies, your fears and
your phobias. This is only the outer part of yourself, the part that is shaped
and conditioned by your worldly experiences. Yet there is a greater Mystery for
you to explore and to discover.
Enter the realm of stillness in your long practice
today and utilize this great Mystery in exercising the strength of awareness
and discernment upon the hour. Bring this Mystery into your experience, into
your daily life, into your mundane circumstances, and with it you shall bring
strength, grace and resolution, both for yourself and for others.
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.
