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

While it is true that you are meant to serve those
who are weaker than you, it is equally true that you need those who are as
strong or stronger than you in order to enable you to move forward. Do not
avoid these people, for you need them. You need their demonstration and you
need their encouragement. The strong must walk with the strong if they are to
serve the weak.
In life, not everyone is equal in their abilities
or in their development. Surely this is obvious to you, but what may not seem
obvious is that you need the strong to be with you and to remind you. You need
to have relationships of great strength. If you can establish and maintain
these relationships appropriately, then you will be able to serve those who are
weaker than you without losing your strength to them. This is a necessary part
of developing Wisdom in relationships, so practice this today.
Look at everyone with whom you are directly engaged
and ask yourself, "Is this person strong enough to help me move
forward?" The answer is either "yes" or "no." If they
are not strong enough, then they are here to receive from you, but they cannot
give to you. Though you need people to give to, at this moment you also very
much need people from whom you can receive. Find out who in your life is strong
enough to help you move forward in The Way of Knowledge. This is so very
Utilize your skill in discernment today. Practice
upon the hour as We have instructed. And in your hour of silence, be still and
listen very carefully. Intermittently throughout the day, call upon each person
with whom you are directly engaged and ask yourself this question, "Is
this person strong enough to help me move forward?"
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.
