Infinite Way Study Practice
October-December 2006

The following study practices are designed and dedicated to God.

Adapted From Joel Goldsmith's 1961 Maui Advanced Work -
God Made This World For Men and Women - Master #436 - Tape 3 - Side 1

The companion study lesson for this practice asked us to ponder the old adage "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" We began to explore the idea that we don't have the answers to such questions. What's more, we don't have the answer to much of anything! In this study practice we will continue with our chicken and egg idea but take it into a different realm.

Joel begins the tape transcript for this lesson by drawing our attention inside the egg. We are taken inside the egg before the little baby chick is born so that we can begin to examine some assumptions that the chick might have had before it was born. By utilizing the chick as the metaphor, Joel trys to show us how our skull is much the same as the egg shell. It has the capacity to limit us to the thoughts contained therein. There are two tape transcript excerpts which we will read from Joel's lecture God Made This World For Men and Women. They are divided into Part One and Part Two.

Take a few minutes to read the transcript excerpts. Have some fun with it. You may want to even spend a meditation or two imagining that you are that little chick inside the egg before it is hatched. What are your thoughts within that dark shell? What is your world? What happens when the egg shell breaks and you come forth from within? What is your world now? Are your thoughts about either world correct?

There are a lot of possibilities with this lesson. Endless possibilities.

Just give it a try and SEE for yourSelf.
