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 freedom is my gift to others. Continuation Training Step 66
Your freedom is a gift. You gain your freedom not
just for yourself but for others. This generates true determination and
commitment, for you cannot afford failure here. Here your giving is occurring
even during your times of practice and preparation. Here you go beyond your
preferences, your wishes and your feelings in the moment and exercise a greater
authority over your time and your circumstances. You do this for yourself and
for others. And though you proceed with humility, you have this recognition. It
is a responsibility. It is a responsibility that the Wise everywhere must
assume, sooner or later. It is what gives them their commitment and their
You as an individual do not have the answers. You
as an individual are not a god. But you can become a vehicle for Knowledge, one
of God’s representatives, a force for good in the world. But this power runs
through you. It is not yours to own. Here there is no mistake. Here there are
no saints and gurus and avatars proclaiming themselves, for the truly wise do
not do this. Their freedom is constantly being given because it is constantly
being demonstrated. They claim nothing else for themselves.
Therefore, do not have illusions of power or
grandeur here. You are exercising an essential right and contribution. Exercise
this by becoming still during your meditation and utilize this power to use
awareness and discernment upon the hour throughout the day.

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

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

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.
