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

There is a new hope in the world. Continuation Training Step 25
There is a new hope in the world. CT Step 25 (MP3)
There is a new hope in the world. CT Step 25
Hope in the world is rekindled by those who become
strong with Knowledge. Hope can fade away and then can be reignited. It can
seem to come and go, depending on how people are swayed and what they choose
for themselves. Hope rests with you. Because the Unseen Ones are here does not
mean that there is hope, for without you, there would be no hope! For you and
others like you are bringing a new hope into the world because you are learning
The Way of Knowledge and because you are learning to receive the gift of
Knowledge. This brings a new hope into the world. Perhaps you cannot see this
fully at this moment. Perhaps it seems beyond your understanding. But from a
greater perspective, it is so very true and so very important.
The world’s emergence into the Greater Community
speaks to this, for if no one were preparing for the Greater Community, if no
one were learning The Greater Community Way of Knowledge or Greater Community
Spirituality, well, then hope would seem to fade. And humanity’s destiny would
seem to be utterly predictable. But because there is hope in the world, because
there is hope in you and in others like you who are responding to a greater
calling, the the destiny of humanity has greater promise, and the freedom of
humanity may well yet be secured.
Consider this today and strengthen the reality of
this through your practice in stillness and your hourly practices in
discernment and awareness. Become the hope and all self-hatred will disappear
from your mind.
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.
