Those who continue will advance. REVIEW Continuation Training Step 84

Those who continue will advance. REVIEW CT Step 84 (MP3)

As we come to the end of this third part in your Steps Continuation Training, it is important that you read the last week of lessons and once again engage in your Four Pillar Review.

However, see this as a continuation, for you are building something now. You have not come to the end of the Continuation Training. You are merely part of the Continuation itself. Learning the skills that we have given you in this preparation will make you strong and effective. Therefore, continue onward in your study of Steps to Knowledge. That is why we call it the Continuation Training. It has no end though at some point you will reach a place where you will not need to engage in it any further. Yet there is much work to be done, and you know that you have not fully learned those things that have been asked of you and shown to you in these many weeks of study.

Therefore, you have our blessings to continue, for you are at the beginning of a great endeavor. Those who continue will advance. And those who advance will understand not only their accomplishment but the means of preparation itself. They will be the ones in a position to help others prepare and to bring the gift of preparation into whatever service they may render to others in the future. For there will be others who will want to know why and how these people have achieved such a state of equanimity in their life, such a state of strength, balance and self-determination. How can it be that they are so free from so many things that paralyze other people? How can it be that they accomplish so much and be so dedicated? How can it be that their gift is so great that they can keep giving it without it being exhausted?

People will ask about these things and wonder. And you then can be in a position to help them, for you have made the journey. You know how many steps it requires. You know the patience, the determination and the self-trust that had to be established along the way. And you know the dangers and the pitfalls. Yet you will know the promise and the gift that such a preparation can give to those who can continue onward. Let us continue. Nasi Novare Coram.

Practice 84:   Four Pillars Review.
                         Hourly practice.

Step 84 says you continue until you don’t need it. I continued thirteen times, with #13 beginning May 15, 2005. I resumed again May 26, 2011. Also I did Steps to Knowledge several times. Occasionally I would read chapters or listen to messages, but having a Step to practice provided more structure.

Tomorrow’s post will be Continuation Training Step1 – Part One. Let us continue.


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 the beginning.

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
