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 strength is called for in the world. CT Step 78
Your strength is called for in the world, most
assuredly. But do you have the strength? Do you have the wisdom? Are you ready?
Can you respond? Can you deliver what you came here to deliver? Can you
recognize those people who are essential for you to know and to associate with?
And can you look past those who are not essential for you to know even though
you may feel great affection for them?
A relationship is only as good as the strength that
its participants bring to it. It is the sum of your accomplishments. Your
relationship with others, your primary relationships, reflect this. Your
relationship with the world reflects this. You can even have a dysfunctional
relationship with the Creator, and in fact this is quite common. What is the
strength you bring to this relationship? What kind of discernment do you bring
here? The world is calling for your strength. This is a relationship with the
world. What is your responsibility here?
People say they have a calling or they want a
calling in life, and perhaps they will dream of it and desire it, but are they
ready? Only the Wise will know. That is why the real Spiritual Teachers, the
Unseen Ones, and even those who are still in physical life, do not show up
everywhere giving everything to everybody. Perhaps they are not the popular
teachers that are out there disseminating the "Ancient Texts" or the
"Secret Teachings" to the general public. The more advanced the
teacher, the more discernment they must have, the more care they must use
regarding students and the more discrete they must be about what they know and
what they can do.
The world is calling you, but are you ready? Life
is ready. The world is ready. Are you ready? Do you have strong enough
relationships? Do you have the self-confidence? Ask yourself these questions
In your practice in stillness, simply be still and
listen so that you may become stronger. Exercise this strength upon the hour
when you are out in the world to see where you are and what is happening. Stay
in contact with yourself so that you may become strong in every situation that
30-minute stillness practice.
Picture: We can feel quite small in a big world, like
this delivery vehicle driver at a big construction project in Beijing, China,
yet our strength is called for.
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 Age of Women
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
