7 Found Watching - Original art by George Denninger

And "Early in the morning, we begin our day
with a sense of expectancy of what the Father
will present for us to do.
Once the work is given us,
a quiet smile comes in the remembrance
that He that has given it to us, performs it.
The entire day is filled with joy
in watching the glory of the Father unfold
as our individual experience."

THE DAILY LESSON - November 26, 2015

"The same principle will also illustrate the idea of companionship. Many feel that they have no companionship at all, or at least no proper or adequate companionship. That, of course, could not be true. It may be that at the moment they have no companions, but that can easily be righted the moment the nature of companionship is understood. Companionship is not found in a person; companionship is a quality of your own being. It is not something you can get; it is something you must give, and in giving it, there is a reflex action which results in receiving, or tangibly having. Even if one were alone on an uninhabited island, he could begin expressing companionship, perhaps with the birds or the trees, with the sun and the stars, or even with a sea shell. He could begin by feeding the birds and the fish; he could begin the giving process, and even from the remoteness of that barren island, safety, security, and rescue would be achieved, and it would be achieved through the correct idea of companionship, because the acknowledgment of companionship would be an acknowledgement of the presence of that which is not seen. Anyone under the belief that he has no companionship need only begin to express it, finding some way to release it from within his own being, and he will soon find himself adequately companioned." ~Joel

Eccl 11:1 (to :)
1 Cast thy bread upon the waters:

"Love for the sake of Loving. Pour forth and you will see…" ~Al

THE DAILY LESSON - November 25, 2015

"On every hand we see the demonstration of supply in nature. Take, for example, a coconut tree. One day the tree is without coconuts, but in a short time dozens have unfolded from within, and the tree is ready to push them out into service so that more can be produced. However, if one were to hang a hundred coconuts on a tree, that would not convince the tree that this was its supply, because that really is not supply. That would have nothing to do with the tree's demonstration - it would be the demonstration of the one who had the coconuts and hung them there.

When we receive a check, we may think that that is a demonstration of supply. The check, however, is not our demonstration at all, but the demonstration of the one who sent it. He is the one who has demonstrated supply or he could not have given it. No matter how much we receive, we never demonstrate supply because our demonstration of supply is determined by how much we give, how much unfolds from within our own consciousness, and how much is released from within our own being. Many who call themselves Christians have accepted the materialistic view that supply is getting, whereas supply is giving. This is a spiritual law, and its violation accounts for the lack and limitation so many people experience." ~Joel

Ps 37:3
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land [Kingdom of God], and verily thou shalt be fed.

THE DAILY LESSON - November 24, 2015

"Since God is omnipresent, all good is right where we are. To admit a lack is to deprive ourselves of the abundance that is already ours, and by admitting the lack we deprive ourselves even of the little that we may have at hand. To acknowledge that we already have all that the Father has, whether or not it is visible or immediately available at the moment, is to acknowledge the truth of 'Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine,' and that is enough to enable us immediately to start giving, spending, and serving, and in that release the flow of supply would begin.

"Father, I know that I can do nothing without You doing the Work. It is not by my might nor power - but by Your Will that the Work is done, and therefore, all Life Is. I am Included in Your Kingdom, and that means that Your entire Kingdom is Included within me… Your Love operates my Life." ~al.within

THE DAILY LESSON - November 23, 2015

"You will find this further exemplified as you study the subject of supply according to The Infinite Way teaching. Supply seems to be a very difficult problem for many people, but in the light of the New Testament teaching, it really should not be, because the Master has given numerous positive Christ-rules for the demonstration of supply. In the statement 'Unto everyone that hath shall be given' is the selfsame principle which has been our relationship with God from the beginning. Instead of seeking and praying to God, instead of fearing that perhaps God may not help, if you acknowledge the presence and the power, the omnipresence of God, even though you may find yourself in hell or in the very valley of the shadow of death, you will find yourself dwelling in the same Spirit as did David when he said, 'I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.' Remember this -it is the recognition and acknowledgement of the presence of God that brings God into tangible evidence, manifestation, and expression." ~Joel

Matt 25:29 (to :)
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance:

"Hath what?

The Acknowledgement of the Spirit within." ~Al

THE DAILY LESSON - November 22, 2015

"Paul is very clear about this in the eighth chapter of Romans: 'For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, no things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord' - neither life, nor death, poverty, sin, nor failure, nothing in this world or the next, nothing can separate you from the love of God. There is no power, and there never has been a power that can separate you from the presence of God, the love of God, and the power of God. But just as it is possible to have a friend, a relative, or a parent, and neglect, disown, or walk away from him, thereby depriving ourselves of his companionship, association, and relationship, so we can entertain this thought of separation, thus depriving ourselves of the presence and power of God. Our friend or relative has not deserted us: We have turned our back upon him. God has never forsaken us, but we have turned from this realization of Omnipresence." ~Joel

Rom 8:5-9
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

"Son, all that I have is thine. Be still and Watch My Good unfold in your Life…" ~Al

THE DAILY LESSON - November 21, 2015

"In the New Testament we read of a thief crucified for his offense, who was taken into paradise by the Master 'this very day'; and we read of Mary Magdalene, whom the Master forgave and saved from those who would persecute and punish her. Then we have the example to which very few of us have given any serious thought, and that is, the Master's saying that even the publicans and the harlots would enter heaven before the unbelievers. So, you see, there is nothing that can separate you from the love of God." ~Joel

Rom 8:38,39 (to 4th ,)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,

"No matter what we think or reason, we are always Included in the Omnipresence of God." ~Al

THE DAILY LESSON - November 20, 2015

"Many religious teachings, and even some metaphysical teachings, create the idea that because of sin, or some other circumstance, we have become separated from God. These teachings create the belief that if only we can find God, or some way of communicating with God, our problems can be met. None of this is true. There is only one truth, Omnipresence, and that truth has been revealed, not only for thousands of years before the Master, Christ Jesus, but it was so marvelously revealed by him, that we of the Western world have come to accept it as authority. But even while we accept it as authority in Scripture, we deny it in our own experience." ~Joel

II Cor 3:5
5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

"I can of mine own self, do nothing. The Spirit within doeth the Work. I surrender… Thy will be done… ~Al

THE DAILY LESSON - November 19, 2015

"It is possible to find ourselves in some sort of hell. It may be a hell of sin or disease, of lack or limitation, but we may be assured of this: We are having that experience only because we have accepted a sense of separation from God. The remedy does not lie in searching or seeking for God, but in the quiet contemplation of God as omnipresent right where we are. In the midst of this very sin or disease or lack, in the very midst of this seeming danger, God is present." ~Joel

Luke 17:20,21
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

THE DAILY LESSON - November 18, 2015

"Any belief that we must do something, think something, pray something, or even be good or worthy in order to attain God, would separate us from our good experience. We all remember Tennyson's lines: 'Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet,' and so any sense of separation from God would intensify one's problems. The poet's words are true - God is closer than breathing - and it matters not whether we are praying, treating, communing, or being good or worthy. The omnipresence of God is a divine relationship that has existed from the beginning of time, and so our work is not to seek God or to try to find God. Our work is the quiet contemplation of God's presence within us, and our prayer is the realization that there is no place where we can ever become separate and apart from God!

'Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. . . .Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.'" ~Joel

"Speak to Him, thou, for He hears, and Spirit with Spirit can meet- Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet." ~Alfred Lord Tennyson

Ps 139:7-10
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

THE DAILY LESSON - November 17, 2015

"A recent letter from a student stated that a neighbor had asked for help. And that her first thought had been, 'Oh, if I could only know the presence of God,' and immediately the Voice said, 'Stop seeking; God is already here.' Always that must be our first realization whenever we meditate or seek communion with God. Whenever we seek access to God, the very first thought we must entertain is that God already is where we are. We should not take the attitude that God is something afar off that we must seek." ~Joel

Ps 23:1
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

"God isn't going to be our shepherd if we just do or say something, plead correctly or meditate aright - God already Is. Rest now. Stop working at this - just Be Still." ~Al

Does the fish soar to find the ocean, The eagle plunge to find the air. . .
FRANCIS THOMPSON, 'The Kingdom of God'

For in him we live, and move, and have our being. . . . ACTS 17:28

One of the first things we have learned in The Infinite Way is, in quietness and in meditation, to give up the search for God in the realization that I and the Father are already one, just as we are taught to give up the search for supply in the realization that all that the Father has is mine." ~Joel

"I can of mine own self, do nothing… I surrender Father… I am content to just rest in Your arms… Thank you Father. Thy will be done." ~Al
