Infinite Way Prayer

God is the Self of Me - from "The Altitude of Prayer" by Joel S. Goldsmith

"God is the Self of me, and therefore, it is my Self that is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient. It is not some self from thousands of years ago. It is not some self that is up in heaven. It is my Self, thy Self, our Self, the one infinite, divine Self which is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, the Self of me.

"If I mount up to heaven, I have this Omnipotence, Omniscience, and Omnipresence with me, but if, temporarily or in belief, I walk through hell or 'the valley of the shadow of death,' I need only say, 'I,' and smile at the idea that I could ever have accepted a limited self that was born and will die, when there is only one Self, and that is the God-Self.

"The outer self is the masquerade which is born of the belief in two powers, but I am spiritual Being.

"I am nothing that can be seen, heard, tasted, touched, or smelled. I am nothing that anyone can get his mind or his fingers on because I am nowhere between the toenails and the top of the head. No one can grasp Me because if he tries he will get his hands on nothing. I, Consciousness, Spirit, am nothing tangible, nothing physical, nothing mortal, nothing material, and in that nontangibility or incorporeality you have Me as I am, that I AM which I was in the beginning with God, incorporeal real Selfhood."
