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

July 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

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

June 17, 2017 // 0 Comments

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. [...]

Christ Ascended 2/5

April 30, 2017 // 0 Comments

It takes a good deal of silent meditation, a good deal of silent wrangling with your own former beliefs, until you reach that place within your own consciousness where you know that God is closer to you than breathing and nearer than hands and feet, and that you can sit there in quietness and in confidence and be assured the kingdom of God is closer to me than breathing; it is where I am. [...]

Individual Identity 4/5

April 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

That is why throughout the message of The Infinite Way you will find that prayer raised to its highest level is without words or thoughts. It is a state of receptivity in which you are open like this: I and my Father is one. The Father is greater than I. Speak Lord thy servant heareth, and then I receive God’s Grace, God’s Wisdom, God’s Life, God’s Power, God’s Judgment, and It flows out. [...]

When Spirit is Upon You 4/5

April 10, 2017 // 0 Comments

But, there is a Spirit in you that is using these hands to produce God’s words, just as the Spirit that dwelled in Jesus Christ used his mind and his body. And this Spirit that dwelt in Jesus Christ sent him about the Father’s business, up and down the Holy Land, doing the works of the Father. [...]

When Spirit is Upon You 3/5

April 9, 2017 // 1 Comment

With this whole body, as a human, I can be good with it. I can be bad with it. I can be careless with it or careful with it. I can use it for good purposes. I can use it for bad purposes, but when the spirit of God dwells in me, I can no longer use this body for any purpose. It isn’t mine. It is now the body of God, and it is God that determines what this body shall do, where it shall go, how it shall be maintained. [...]

Day40 : The Spirit of God Dwells in You

If you have decided to give up that one tree in the Garden of Eden, if you have decided that you will not accept two powers, you could be in the midst of all that and not feel their fear or their doubts. You would still be in your Heaven. [...]
