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

Today I will be attentive to others. Continuation Training Step 59
Today I will be attentive to others. CT Step 59 (MP3)
Today I will be attentive to others. CT Step 59
Today practice listening to what others tell you.
Listen for Knowledge. If Knowledge cannot be detected, simply remain silent,
but be discrete. People talk a great deal, but their primary message is often
lost. They mean one thing but say another. This is your opportunity to hear.
Even if someone is being difficult or critical or antagonistic, listen. Listen
for Knowledge. Don't try to put a happy face on the situation. Don't try to
give their communication some kind of spiritual message. Just listen. To do
this, your mind must be quiet, and this is part of the reason you practice
stillness, so that you can listen when you need to. And you do need to.
In your practice in stillness, continue this
listening exercise and upon the hour listen carefully. Use your whole body to
listen when you are doing this practice. For it is not just the ears that are
hearing. It is your whole being. Today listen to what others tell you. Do not
pass judgment. Do not critically evaluate what they are saying. Just listen for
Knowledge. Either Knowledge is there or it is not, and if it is there, what is
it really communicating? If you listen, you might hear.
30-minute stillness practice.

West Bank of the Mississippi River. It takes a ride on the Algiers Point/Canal

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. Fifth in the list as of this date is:The Worldwide Community
of God’s New Revelation
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.
