Infinite Way Study Practice
October-December 2002

The following study practice is designed for those students who already have at least some background with Joel Goldsmith's Infinite Way teaching. My first recommendation would be that you go to the source text or tape where these messages are presented and listen to the original instruction.

Adapted From Joel Goldsmith's 1960 Kansas City Practitioner Class
"Treatment and Law to Grace" Tape

Protective work is the Infinite Way practice of bringing oneself under a daily conscious recognition of God as the only power. This daily practice was established to give students a method by which they could begin to evolve their experience to one in which God is not just a word or concept but an actual recognition of the Presence of God as individual being. Here I present a tape transcript excerpt in which Joel briefly spells out how protective work is to be practiced in our daily life. And please remember that even though this excerpt is only one paragraph, do not overlook its significance for Infinite Way students. Be sure to read this text carefully and let the conscious recognition of God in your life right at this very moment be present as you read.

from Joel Goldsmith's 1960 Kansas City Practitioner Class
"Treatment and Law to Grace" tape:

"In this protective work the idea is that an individual waking in the morning is really waking up into this world -- the world of laws -- laws of matter, laws of mind, laws of two powers. And that he or she must consciously remove themselves from this world of two powers. Come out and be separate and place yourself under Grace. Now there is no power outside of you going to do that for you. That is why life goes on eternally showing these problems to us because we do not remove ourselves. And to be free of the world we must consciously remove ourselves from under the law and place ourselves under Grace, and that must be done every single day of the week. I do not know anyone who has grown old enough or advanced enough to omit the daily conscious realization that since I am I, I am not under the law but under Grace. That since I am I there are no laws external to me acting upon me. For I am the law and I am the dominion unto this world. This is truth but if you don't consciously make it so in your experience you cannot demonstrate it."
