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 will not be afraid of conflict today. Continuation Training Step 81

I will not be afraid of conflict today. CT Step 81
Do not be afraid of conflict. Use conflict to
develop discernment. Discernment is an exercise in power and
self-determination. It is an exercise in freedom, essential freedom as we have
If conflict faces you, face it. Do not run from it.
Do not slink away. Do not put a happy face on it and call it something else.
See it as it is. Face it if it must be faced. Face this within yourself, in
conflict with another or in conflict in a situation where you are working or
living. Postpone nothing that must be faced today. See if resolution can be
found. Listen carefully. Hear what is being communicated. Listen for Knowledge.
Make sure that your own position is genuine.
If conflict is in your life, this is an opportunity
to practice. If conflict is outside your life, existing somewhere else, listen
to it. Look at it. Listen to all sides. Don't try to make everything
justifiable. It is possible in certain situations that everyone can be wrong
and that the answer lies somewhere else. Or it can be possible that someone
simply will not give in. They will not compromise where they need to. Look and
listen. That is the practice for today. Enjoy your time of stillness and
reprieve. And upon the hour remember where you are and what is happening.
30-minute stillness practice.

County, Wisconsin. Guns in America are a source of conflict. For some hunting
is violence; for others it is an historic means of getting food.
For the continuation of reading material we go to Other Revelations of
the New Message from God that have not yet been compiled by The Messenger into
volumes and books. Next in the list as of this date is:The Confirmation

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

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
