Frequently Asked Questions about Steps to Knowledge

  • q-iconWho is Steps to Knowledge for?

    Steps to Knowledge has been provided as a Way for individuals who feel that a spiritual calling and purpose are emerging in their lives, but who need a new approach to fully comprehend what this means. Often these individuals have felt this pull for a long time. Steps provides a foundation upon which they can begin to respond to this calling. The only entrance requirement is the determination to know one’s purpose, meaning and direction.

  • q-iconHow does Steps relate to people's daily needs?

    The development of Knowledge is absolutely key for people to function with certainty in everyday life. In your relationships, your work, your personal health and your spiritual awareness, you need the power that the Creator has given you to guide and to preserve you. The New Message speaks of this and provides a way to learn these things.

  • q-iconWhat is Knowledge?

    Steps to Knowledge describes Knowledge in the following way:

    “Knowledge represents your True Self, your True Mind and your True Relationships in the universe. It also possesses your greater calling in the world and a perfect utilization of your nature, all of your inherent abilities and skills, even your limitations, all to be given for good in the world.” (STEP 2)

    Knowledge is the deeper spiritual mind that the Creator has given to each person. It is the source of all meaningful action, contribution and relationships. It is our natural Inner Guidance system. Its reality is mysterious, but its Presence can be directly experienced. Knowledge is remarkably wise and effective in guiding each person in finding his or her right relationships, work and contribution. It is equally effective in preparing one to recognize the many pitfalls and deceptions that exist along the way. It is the basis for seeing, knowing, and acting with certainty and strength. It is the foundation of life.

  • q-iconWhat is Steps to Knowledge Designed to Achieve?

    Steps to Knowledge represents both a path to God and a path of contribution in the world. It engages the student in solving the two most fundamental questions in life: Who am I? and Why am I here? Steps addresses these questions within the context of purpose, relationships and community. It emphasizes that everyone is looking for these in the world and that this pursuit underlies all the desires and endeavors considered to be meaningful here. The experience of purpose, relationships and community gives each person whatever sense of meaning and identity they may have at any given moment. Steps indicates that these needs are intrinsic to everyone and that everyone has brought the answer to these needs with them from their Ancient Home. Thus it says that every person carries, unknowingly, their own fulfillment within themselves, within their Self-Knowledge.

    Through practice and revelation, Steps to Knowledge gives students the necessary structure to find Knowledge, to engage with Knowledge and to follow Knowledge in every situation. With this, they begin to find their true direction in life. Studying every day builds the skill and the confidence that only consistent self-application can provide.

  • q-iconHow was Steps to Knowledge Given?

    Steps to Knowledge was revealed to the teacher Marshall Vian Summers in the Spring of 1989. It was received over a fourteen-day period in a state of revelation. Steps to Knowledge was provided by a group of unseen spiritual teachers who describe themselves as Teachers of the Greater Community. Their message is universal and yet their methods are unique for our time and world.

    See the Steps Vigil page for more information and stories on how Marshall received Steps.

  • q-iconHow can Steps help people find their Higher Purpose in Life?

    The gift is within you. The Way of Knowledge is here. The Way can only be known. For it to be known, you must have a foundation in Knowledge. That is why we take the Steps to Knowledge. It is not a matter of opinion or viewpoint. It is a matter of recognizing the truth face to face and experiencing it deeply. Therefore, for those who can see, hear and respond, there is a “Way” to find what you most deeply know and what you are here to do. You are free to disagree, but you will not know or see until you have advanced in the preparation provided by the New Message.
