Infinite Way Writings

Weekly Passage - for week of 5/29/16

"To live without desire is to live a vital life of alert expectancy. It is like going out into the garden or into the park in the springtime to observe the buds which have become flowers; or it is like being up before sunrise, waiting for that first glimpse of dawn, and then watching the sun rise on the horizon. In all of this, there is no desire or anxiety because there is a calm conviction that these things will come to pass. In the conviction that God's grace is our sufficiency, how can we have any desires? In the assurance that the Lord is my shepherd, that He leadeth me beside the still waters and maketh me to lie down in green pastures, what room is left for desire?"

-- from Joel Goldsmith's "The Infinite Way Letters - 1958"
