In conscious union with God, the mind rests. The human mind is no longer concerned with the problems of today or tomorrow, because the Soul’s union with God—the conscious realization of God—reveals God as the fulfillment of every need even before the need is apparent. Concern, fear, and doubt vanish in the midst of fulfillment; the true meaning of the words, “Fear not,” is revealed. In conscious union with God, the mind of God functions as our mind, as our experience, and as our life. Then the human mind rests and performs its proper function as an avenue of awareness. Joel S Goldsmith, Fear Not, The Art of Meditation.

In the class “Fear Not” inspired by the content of this chapter we are studying on a very fundamental and basic level, so good to look at very basic questions that arise and practice meditation together at the end of the class. The questions looked at in this class are: What does fear do? When will good come to me? What is the cause of discords and inharmonies? How to recognize God as the Soul of every person?

Next week’s chapter is going to be The Mystical I: Chapter 1, “I Stand at the Door”. The publisher shares: The Mystical I answers the age-old question of how to attain oneness with the I that we truly are, that which fulfills us. Goldsmith writes, “When you open the door of your consciousness and admit I, you will find the Presence – at first slowly and gradually, because none of us could take it all in one leap – but you will find that the Presence flows out from you in the forms necessary to your daily experience.” Goldsmith gives encouragement to the reader to be receptive and listen for the “still, small voice” of God and to cherish it secretly in consciousness until it flows freely and fully. Then, he says, you will be able to hear, “I in the midst of you am God.”
