Infinite Way Study Practice
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
"The Infinite Way" - Chapter - Wisdoms of the Infinite Way
Before beginning this study practice make sure that you look over the companion study practice for this lesson Practice #21. Now we will apply the ideas of contemplative meditation in that lesson and continue to seek within ourselves for Light.
On the home page of The Unofficial Infinite Way web site there is a piece of code that randomly generates all of the Wisdoms of the Infinite Way from Joel Goldsmith's book "The Infinite Way". They are located about half way down the page. Go to the home page and take whatever Wisdom appears on the page into a contemplative meditation within you. Many of the Eastern religions of the world espouse letting the chance operations of the universe determine what our next step will be. Of course, those of us who are Infinite Way students know that in reality it is not 'chance' as we think of it in the Western world that is being our guide, but the Divine Intelligence of the Universe that will select which quotation we will work with for this exercise.
Whatever quotation comes up on the home page will be your particular guide for your next 4 or 5 meditations over the next couple days. If you like you can even work with a quotation longer. Let your heart be your guide. The main idea is that you should receive some spiritual inspiration from the meditation regarding the individual significance of the quote and how it applies to your Being.
Once you have felt something in Consciousness with one quotation try the technique again using another. Don't try to make anything happen, just observe what happens and whether or not any connections are made along the way between you and your Divine Selfhood. Maybe something will come to you immediately, maybe it will not. Do not be concerned. Be a beholder to the present moment. Remember that it is not our purpose in meditation to take thought. Thoughts might arise and we will notice them. Then just as easily we can let them go and return to the interior Consciousness of the particular Wisdom that we have been given.
Even if the Wisdom that you first receive does not seem to inspire you immediately don't let that hinder or limit the possibilities. There are always an infinite amount of possibilities when working with passages from the Infinite Way books and tapes. Stay present and aware of the world around you as you practice your meditations. You will find that you may notice traffic sounds, voices outside, birds singing, the sound of your breath or heartbeat. All of these are perfectly acceptable in the eyes of the Lord. All of these are part of the Plan. Just notice them and then always remember to return to the Spirit of the Word. Return to the Spirit of thy Self.
