3 Meditations a day
The following was given me from Alexandra de la Vega, she used in her Infinite Way Group, an opportunity to bring to your attention and to your students the timely and appropriate class for these times.
Excerpt from the Holland 1956 Class, tape 8804, “The Word Made Flesh + 3 Meditations” from Joel S. Goldsmith
The suggestion is to follow the instruction of Joel’s teaching of three meditations a day, that in Consciousness we may be those “ten righteous men” that saves each of our cities through three meditations per day.
The time has come for the world to be free, to be free of fear, to be free of war, to be free of danger, to be free of lack, and there is only one way that it can be given its freedom. It isn’t by reforming four billion people on earth because you can’t get around, even with radio, to do that. It is to destroy that which makes the human race what they are, the devils that they are. In other words, to destroy that which causes wars and fights and enmities and bias and bigotry and hate and intolerance, and what is that? It is a material sense that’s called human consciousness. It’s the thing that makes an evil person do evil.
There is a way to stop it, and that is by destroying that state of consciousness that makes a person do what they don’t want to do. This is what was shown to me, and this is the work that has been inaugurated. I’m asking you, as I’ve asked these other cities, for three meditation periods every day to be given to me. Every day, seven days a week, alone if you are alone, two or more together if you can be two or more together, a whole group if you can be a whole group, but each one to pledge themselves, not to me but to God, to give these three periods every day.
Now, it makes no difference. There are twenty-four hours in everybody’s day. Nobody has less than twenty-four hours, so there isn’t anybody that can say they don’t have time, because twenty-four hours, each one with sixty minutes, is a terribly long time, especially when each meditation period doesn’t have to be more than five or ten minutes. There isn’t anybody in the world that hasn’t got five or ten minutes, three times out of twenty-four hours, to give, to bring peace on earth. The worst that can happen is it can fail, and even then, it would be no loss to you since you have given. But it won’t fail because this was given to me to start in the world.
Now, the first of these three meditation periods must be for only one purpose. It must have no other reason: realization of the Christ. That’s the first meditation period. You can have that one in the morning, perhaps, and the way it would be done would be to sit quietly for a few moments and take some Bible passage. Oh, just to think of one quickly, “In Thy presence is the fullness thereof. In Thy presence is fullness…” Alright God, let me experience Thy presence.
Then you just sit quietly for three, four, five, six, seven minutes, and that’s your whole realization. “Thy presence is fullness,” let me experience Thy presence. Or you might take another one. “Where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.” Alright God, let me feel the spirit of the Lord, “for where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty,” freedom.Let me have the spirit of the Lord. Let me feel the spirit of the Lord. Let the Holy Ghost descend upon me. In just a few minutes, three minutes, four, five, six, seven until you feel that your meditation is done. That’s all. You’re finished.
Your second meditation, in your second meditation, you realize also the presence of the Christ, but with it you realize this: The presence of the Christ dissolves material sense. The presence of the Christ dissolves material sense throughout this universe. That’s in your friends and in your foes. That’s in your land and in my land and their land and his land and her land. The presence of the Christ dissolves material sense throughout this globe, destroys mad ambition, destroys greed, lust, animality, fear, hate. The presence of the Christ destroys these in human consciousness.
And, so you just sit there again, three, four, five, six, seven minutes until you feel that’s complete, and you are through with your second meditation.
Your third meditation is the realization of the Christ opening human consciousness to this Truth, to the spiritual truth, to God. The activity of the Christ, the presence of the Christ opens human consciousness to the receptivity of this truth, three minutes, four minutes, five, six. That’s the first meditation period. You can have that one in the morning, perhaps, and the way it would be done would be to sit quietly for a few moments and take some Bible passage. Oh, just to think of one quickly, “In Thy presence is the fullness thereof. In Thy presence is fullness…” Alright God, let me experience Thy presence.
