The Fruit of the Art of Meditation 5/5

April 5, 2018 // 0 Comments

You can not know the things that await the person who can glimpse the Spiritual Kingdom and realise what is meant by just those short passages; “My Peace”. “My Kingdom.” “My Kingdom is not of this world.” My peace. Not as the world giveth, no no no. My Peace. Spiritual peace. [...]

Well, I’m going to say to you, and I hope you will say to those who come to you that while I would not like to hear that anybody turned these tapes on at night and had them going while they were asleep, I do hope that the tapes of this Chicago class—and for you the tapes of this—will be kept pretty busy until these principles are clearly stated within you. [...]

Now, if material sense makes us ill, the antidote for it is spiritual consciousness or the realization that Spirit alone is power.  If I say that Spirit alone is power and I don’t love God and man, I’m a liar.  So I’m full of rheumatism, or cancer, or consumption, or something else.  So, I have to open out a way for the imprisoned splendor to escape.  I have to open out a way for forgiveness to flow out from me, prayers to flow out from me for the good and the bad.  [...]

You see one of the faults of our students, of all students, is that as soon as they hear a little truth they want to get out on a platform with it. They want to save the world. Everybody else is going to be saved. They haven’t been saved. They’re going to save the world. They’re going to give this away right away. Now, because they’ve got nothing to give, words in the book the other people could have found for themselves. [...]

“I” 2/5

January 14, 2018 // 0 Comments

The secret of spiritual demonstration is really the activity of individual consciousness, and it hasn’t anything to do with a God. It has to do with the attainment of a God state of consciousness. It hasn’t anything to do with a Spirit. It has to do with the individual attainment of spiritual consciousness. [...]

Infinite Nature of Yourself 3/5

November 13, 2017 // 0 Comments

That is why meditation is the secret—the whole secret of the message of The Infinite Way. Without it, remember this, without meditation, The Infinite Way would be a philosophy of life, and it would just be a nice story about Joel Goldsmith’s life. But with meditation, it becomes a story of your life or anyone’s life who wishes to turn within. [...]

Discovery of My Self 4/4

Let's see if we can pray without asking God for anything between tonight and tomorrow afternoon. Let's see if we can pray without wanting a single thing of God, except more light on this subject. Let's see if we can get along between tonight and tomorrow afternoon without praying for food, or clothing, or housing, or health and confine our prayers exclusively within ourselves, remember. [...]

The Secret Work of the Original “25” 2/6

You don’t have to neglect your families.  You don’t have to run away from them or desert them.  You don’t have to give up your family obligations or duties.  You have to perform those things for Caesar that Caesar demands, but you must resolve within yourself that part of your consciousness which must be reserved for the Spirit, and you must be ready to break enough with your social obligations and so forth to be prepared to meet the spiritual demands that are made upon you. [...]

The Nature and Activity of The Infinite Way 3/6

June 11, 2017 // 0 Comments

Get yourself into the Spirit. Be immersed in the Spirit. Be sure that the Spirit is talking through you. Be sure that you are permeated with an inner glow, a feeling of Immanuel, God-with-us. “I live, yet not I, Christ. I have all this work to do today, people to be healed to sense, and so forth, but thank God I don’t have to do it now. The Spirit of God is upon me, and I can comfort the sick and heal the weary, and visit those that are in prison, and so forth and so on.” I can do that, why? Because the Spirit of God is upon me. [...]

Christ Ascended 4/5

May 1, 2017 // 0 Comments

You see God is nothing objective to you. Therefore, you cannot have a thought about God that would be God. Then the closest you come to God is when you are having no thought about God but can say, “enlighten me.” And then you’ll find that there is no God at all that you could think of up in your mind. God is subjective. No thought about God is God. [...]
