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 listen to the world. Continuation Training Step 60
Today I will listen to the world. CT Step 60 (MP3)
Today I will listen to the world. CT Step 60
Today’s practice in listening is listening to what
the world is telling you. Go someplace where you can be in contact with the
world, where your feet can be on the ground, where you can be connected with
nature, and ask, "What is the world telling me?" Just become relaxed
and still and listen. Perhaps you may not hear anything except the conversation
in your own mind. Perhaps you may only hear sounds around you. That is fine.
The point here is you are listening. You are asking the question and you are
Many people ask questions, but they never listen
for the answer. They just give themselves an answer or they choose an answer
from someone else that they like. "Oh, I like that answer. I'll go with
that." But they never listen. They have no patience. They have no
discernment. They cannot stand the stillness. They are afraid of it, of what it
might reveal. Let this not be the case for you.
Let listening be a constant exercise. Remind
yourself upon the hour and during your meditation practice, practice listening
within yourself. But take occasion today to listen to the world, and ask
yourself, "What is the world telling me?"
30-minute stillness practice.

the Shenandoah National Park I have used for decades.
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. Sixth in the list as of this date is:The Power of Knowledge
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.
