The italicized portions of the book are spontaneous meditations which have come to the Joel during periods of uplifted consciousness and not in any sense intended to be used as affirmations, denials, or formulas. They serve as examples of the free flowing of the Spirit. As the reader practices the Presence, he, too, in his exalted moments, will receive ever-new and fresh inspirations as the outpouring of the Spirit.
I seek nothing but Thee, I must know Thee whom to know aright is life eternal. Let me live and move and have my being in Thee, with Thee, and I can accept whatever else may come. What difference, then, will it make if I have a body or do not have a body, if I am healthy or unhealthy? “In Thy presence is fullness of life.”
