Infinite Way Writings

Weekly Passage - for week of 9/9/18

"There is always a connecting river and a bordering sea. The river is the individual path from sense to Soul, from the lower land to the upper, the bordering sea is either the troubled waters of material existence or the quiet waters of the Soul. Always there are smaller bodies of water to be crossed on the journey -- the Sea of Galilee. Dead Sea, Black Sea, the Jordan -- all symbolic of the one crossing from danger to safety, from matter to Spirit.

"Within our own consciousness we find these places, rivers, temples and mountains -- not outside of us in a book as it may appear. It is within our own consciousness that the rivers are to be crossed, the transition made from the localized and finite conditions to the infinite and omnipotent good."

-- from Joel Goldsmith's "Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture"
Chapter - Scriptural Symbols
