No God in the human scene!?!

…The Infinite Way came into being when I realized that there is no God in the human world. If there were a God in the human world, rape, arson, murder, wars, dens of iniquity, drug addiction, and all the other afflictions of mankind would be impossible. Not one of these evidences of man’s inhumanity to man could occur in the presence of God. Everything that is taking place in this world of ours is taking place only because there is no God in the human scene.

Joel S Goldsmith
Beyond Words and Thoughts

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1-Corinthians 13:12


  1. Our life is devoted to bringing God into the human scene. AS we know God, God appears in our work, in our lives, and the lives outhouse around us. At the moment we are walking through the valley of the shadow of death…but God is walking beside us every moment. God has only one pair of hands, ur hands. We are here to perform tasks or his glory. Many great mystics weathered the reign of terror of the Bolsheviks. As we are seeing a similar goddess revolution sweep in, we must live in our mystical practices. God is our high tower.

  2. Hi Wim,
    Just thought this should be pointed to:
    Joel was only partially correct on this “shocking” statement (and he knew it). Although, I certainly believe he understood thoroughly he made this statement as a teacher for “shock” value — so IW students would be sure not to mistake illusion for the Truth. However in the “shock value” it was explained somewhat imperfectly and some may misconstrue. G-d is never absent. He is within and without all things and appearances and transcending all things and appearances and Beyond anything conceivable or perceivable. Indeed, — where is G-d not? Show me. Impossible.
    God is in the World, as the World but concealed. What does this mean? Our own delusion dictates the degree of the concealment. So Joel is correct when he says that in the delusion (World) G-d is absent since He is CONCEALED by illusory mind-stuff. However, once the mind is cleared by IW teachings or other paths… is clearly revealed that There IS only HE and “where I stand Here and Now — is Holy Ground.”
    Warmest wishes.
