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
"Invisible Supply" - Chapter 4 - Overcoming Our Sense of Separation From God
There is not much in the way of spiritual conversation that takes place in the media of the Western world. Based on the spiritual programs that are presented that is probably a good thing. When people speak of God the majority of the time they are merely attempting to confirm their own beliefs which they have at some time accepted as true and are now trying to maintain. The intellectualization of religion has trapped virtually our entire society and tends toward upholding the very things which we claim we would like to be rid of such as war, poverty, divorce, crime, etc. One example that Joel points out is how our culture is so attached to working or laboring for a living rather than letting our living come to us by Grace. The key point is that to live our life by Grace we must first really and truly lose the concepts that we are clinging to in our minds.
For those of us on the spiritual path it is not that we should sit in judgement regarding people in our lives, or those we see on TV, but rather to begin to come into a closer examination of our own erroneous concepts. Then we can bear witness to how we too have used the spiritual practice to justify unrealities in our own lives which leave us separate and apart from God.
So then how do we begin to come into a greater understanding of our Oneness with God? In the book "Invisible Supply" Joel reminds us again to consciously practice the Omnipresence of God in our lives."The Father is in the midst of me, not where I am seeking and searching, but within me. When? Now, when I acknowledge Him, because He is omnipresent, always present. Thank you, Father, Thou art here! I shall not fear what mortals can do to me. I shall not fear any presence or power in heaven, on earth, or in hell, for Omnipresence is with me. The Presence of God goes with me and before me to make the crooked places straight. The Presence remains behind me to bless all those who pass that way. The Presence walks on each side of me."
For each of us there is a new opportunity every day to "turn with an open mind to the . . . unfolding of God in our consciousness." Learn to meditate by being QUIET. Learn to be quiet by being STILL. How do we learn to be still? Just be yourSELF, and you will find that STILLNESS is your natural and normal state of BEING!
Everyday, practice it -- once, twice, three times and four -- That is all. That IS IT!
