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 discrete. Continuation Training Step 61
Today be discrete. Carry on whatever conversation
is necessary in your work, but do not reveal what is happening within you. Be
aware of it, but keep it to yourself for today. If you feel prompted by another
to talk about your experience, politely decline. Say, "I can't talk about
that right now. I'm not ready to speak about that." Hold it within
yourself as a conscious act.
Just as Knowledge is discrete with you, you must
learn to be discrete with others. Think how discrete the Creator is! My
goodness! There is a lot to be communicated. But it must be saved for the right
person, the right moment and the right time. Who has such patience? The timing
is crucial. Learn this and your words will have great power and you will not
waste your life force. You will not lose your insights. Your vitality will not
be taken from you through inappropriate conversations.
Discretion is necessary for depth of understanding
as well as for the development of discernment. Practice stillness in your
meditation and practice awareness and discretion upon the hour. How much time
would be saved and how much suffering would be prevented if people would
30-minute stillness practice.

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. Seventh in the list as of this date is:The New Message for the
Impoverished and Oppressed
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.
