The Daily Lesson

"THE DAILY LESSON", an ongoing open class by Infinite Way Teacher Al Denninger, is inspired by the message of Joel S. Goldsmith. In this Book Study we delve into Joel's books paragraph by paragraph, from cover to cover. I provide Scripture supporting his entire Work and an Impartation from my daily Experience. These classes appear on my website and by email subscription each day, for my students to take into their daily meditations and to carry with them throughout their day.

We are currently studying the book
"A PARENTHESIS IN ETERNITY"
By Joel S Goldsmith

On April 17th, 2021, we began Chapter 28
"The Tree Of Life"

STUDENTS NOTE: In my teaching, the words that are capitalized throughout the work are not capitalized for emphasis. Instead, the purpose is to Lift the student into the Awareness that these words are a Synonym for, or an Activity of God.
The portions that are italicized are spontaneous meditations.

At the conclusion of each chapter the Lessons are posted to the IWSO Archives, where there are over 11 years of consecutive Lessons for your further review and study!

The Daily Lesson - May 11, 2021

"In the mystical life, a person lives constantly and consciously as out from the Center, in the realization of oneness, and with every temptation to see twoness, opposition, or competition, he inwardly smiles in the realization: 'Be not afraid, it is I. There is only one of us here, not two. There is not a 'me' and danger, there is not a 'me' and competition, there is not a 'me' and an enemy-that is twoness.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 8:3-9 (KJV)
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

In the Bible story about the woman caught in adultery, Jesus had so much confidence in the Truth that he did not react in the slightest to the noise of condemnation and control that completely surrounded around him. He ignored the temptation to react at all, and in silence, wrote with his finger in the dirt. The crowd spewing twoness had to leave - because there is no real power in self-righteousness….there never is. ~Al Denninger

"The antidote for all friction is a realization of oneness. We must keep consciously before us a picture of the Tree of Life, and we must see ourselves as branches of that Tree, each growing from the center to the circumference, with no dependence upon one another, yet with a co-operativeness because we are parts of one complete whole." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ephesians 4:4-6 (KJV)
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Romans 12:5 (KJV)
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

I Corinthians 12:12,13 & 27 (KJV)
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

The answer for disarming the perception of friction, disharmony or separation from God is in the Awareness of the Truth. And so, we practice… The Realization Comes in Stillness, not in the noise of this-world, but in Spirit. Spirit to Spirit, Soul to Soul... Practice being still - at first sitting still in a traditional form of meditation, and then we learn to be still while we are going about our day. Keep focused, as much as you can during the day… Stop often and drop deeper into the Spirit, Realizing that we are a part of The Tree of Life being made to drink into One Spirit… ~Al Denninger

"The person who knows this is beginning to purge himself of ego because he does not see himself as the source of someone else's good; he is thinking only in terms of one, not of two. Where there are two there will eventually be friction, even when temporarily one is doing good for another." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 18:19 (KJV)
19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

John 5:31 (KJV)
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

Matthew 6:24 (KJV)
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

There is no real separation from God, and there never was, or will be, another master to serve; it can't be so within the Realm of Omnipresence. In stillness and in confidence, walk the Righteous path, no matter what distraction presents itself. There is no God and… ~Al Denninger

"The truth that enables us to serve each other is knowing that I have nothing of my own to give you, and you have nothing of your own to give me: we derive our good from the same Source because we are one-one Tree. We are the manifestation of one Tree of Life and, by an invisible bond, we are all branches of that one Tree." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 15:8,9 (KJV)
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

"It is so easy to think that we can be of benefit to one another. This is the natural belief of the natural man, the ego-man. One branch cannot really benefit another branch, however, because whatever benefit may come to you or to me through each other is really only the Life Itself using us as Its instrument. The blessings that come into our experience from any direction are really God Itself flowing to us. It is true, of course, that as servants of the most High we also serve each other, but we serve only as instruments of God." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 15:4 (KJV)
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

John 5:30,31 (KJV)
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

John 14:10 (KJV)
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

If God is Omnipresent, where can I go to be separate and apart? I am the branch and you are the branch - and the branch is the Tree. ~Al Denninger

"As good begins to unfold in our experience, whether it is peace, harmony, health, or abundance-whatever it may be-we have to develop that deep humility which enables us to recognize that this is the showing forth of God's glory, God showing Himself forth as our health, our life, and our supply; and in the recognition of this, we are contemplating God's grace, His love, omnipresence, and omnipotence. In dwelling in that contemplative state we are permitting the law of life to function in our mind, being, body, and business. Furthermore, the flow is normal because it is not cluttered up or cut off by an ego trying to boast or preen itself, and give credit to itself." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 4:6,7 (KJV)
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Remain focused on God as the Source of Your Being, no matter what distraction presents itself. None of the illusion matters-only Him. ~Al Denninger

"The contemplative knows that the branch cannot dictate to the tree, and that the branch need not tell the tree what it needs, or when it needs it. The branch knows that it has to be still and let the tree manifest its own glory, and any glory the tree manifests will be showered upon, and shared with, the branches, and that will include all that the branch may need. The only function of a branch is to be still and let, and in due time the life of the tree will provide the branch with all that it needs; and then when the branch is full of flowers and fruit, instead of taking pride in it, the branch will be humble and remember that it is but showing forth the glory of the tree, and that of its own self it did not, and could not, create this beauty, this fruit, or this wealth." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:8 (KJV)
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Psalms 46:10,11 (to ;) (KJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;

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

Matthew 7:20 (KJV)
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

I Know that God is the Source and Activity of Be-ing….and God Knows and provides all that I Am... All that is Done.

"The contemplative does not withdraw from an active life; in fact, he may become increasingly active. He would undoubtedly be better qualified to be the president of a corporation than an ego-man, because the ego-man could accomplish only what his own mental power could encompass, but the contemplative would draw his wisdom from an inner Source to which the ego-man would have no access." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Psalms 115:14,15 (KJV)
14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

When we are focusing on this-world we can get bogged down in circular tasks just to make ends meet. When we are willing to give our Heart to Spiritual Vision, we are Lifted into a Life of Infinite Fruitage with an Infinite Supply in which to Fulfill God's Will. We no longer dwell in human prosperity, but in God's Grander View. ~Al Denninger

"The ego-man, the man of earth, is always asserting himself in the world: discussing, arguing, striving, competing, fighting. The contemplative, the man of God, may be out in the world doing whatever his work may be, but mentally and spiritually he is at home within his own being." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 3:3 (KJV)
3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

I Corinthians 3:18,19 (KJV)
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

Romans 8:5-9 (to .) (KJV)
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.

II Corinthians 5:16,17 (KJV)
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

II Corinthians 3:4-6 (KJV)
4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

"Our own will come to us from the Source because we are branches of the Tree of Life, and we are fed by the life of that Tree, which finds a way to draw to us out of the Ground whatever our particular nature requires. The function of a branch is to be still and know that it is not merely a branch but part of a tree. When we look at a tree from afar, we do not dissect it and point out that here is the trunk of a tree, and there is a leaf. No, we see the tree as a whole, constituted of trunk, branches, leaves, and fruit. So is the Tree of Life constituted of you and me, and all the other you's and me's in the world, and even though our particular function may be that of a branch, a part of the tree, nevertheless, we are the Tree, Itself." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Deuteronomy 6:4,5 (KJV)

"When the conviction of oneness is realized, we perceive that each branch derives its good from its Source, and therefore there is no need for one branch to compete or fight with another branch, to try to get the better of, or overcome, another, because each branch then realizes what John Burroughs so beautifully expresses in his poem 'Waiting': 'My own shall come to me.' Why will it come? Because it is coming to us from our Source, not from another branch, not from somebody else, and not from going out into the world trying to get it. This removes any desire or compulsion to take anything away from anyone else, or to draw anything to us from any outside source. 'My own shall come to me'-mine, not yours." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 12:1-5 (KJV)
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Romans 8:38,39 (KJV)
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, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

WAITING
Serene, I fold my hands and wait, Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea; I rave no more 'gainst time or fate, For lo! my own shall come to me.
I stay my haste, I make delays, For what avails this eager pace? I stand amid the eternal ways, And what is mine shall know my face.
Asleep, awake, by night or day, The friends I seek are seeking me; No wind can drive my bark astray, Nor change the tide of destiny.
What matter if I stand alone? I wait with joy the coming years; My heart shall reap where it hath sown, And garner up its fruit of tears.
The waters know their own and draw The brook that springs in yonder height; So flows the good with equal law Unto the soul of pure delight.
The stars come nightly to the sky; The tidal wave unto the sea; Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high, Can keep my own away from me.
~ John Burroughs

I of mine own self can do nothing, it is the Spirit of God, the Source, Maintainer and Sustainer of all creation, that doeth the Work…. If I am very, very still, Hear it from God, and follow His Direction, It is Done by an Expression of God or Branch of The Tree of Life… I don't ask for things-I just seek God's Presence and patiently, secretly, sacredly and with unconditional Love, Watch His Will be Done…… There is no other power that can stop God's Love from Loving.

"Those who are living the ego-life are fighting or competing with one another, trying to supersede or be better than another, richer or more beautiful, living a life of friction because there is always a sense of twoness. Wherever and whenever there is twoness, there is bound to be friction because one person is always hitting up against the other. But all this friction disappears, all competition and all opposition disappear, in the realization of oneness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 7:14-18 (KJV)
14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

Matthew 12:50 (KJV)
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

The carnal mind is easily distracted and tends to think of his own self. A sense of twoness is thought up that is somehow separate and apart from God. All sin is based in these thoughts of twoness. What carnal man tends to do is forget that he is under Omnipresence.

Finding our good is not done on our own - it is done in the Presence of God and in the dedicated practice of His will. Let your consciousness be born again in Conscious Oneness. ~Al Denninger

"This is similar to what happens to a person when he believes that he is intelligent, good, strong, wealthy, healthy, or moral. Think what happens to this person when one of these days, wandering around as a separate branch, he begins to feel himself withering up inside, and hears his friends say, 'Oh, that's natural! You're getting old.' But it is not natural at all from the spiritual standpoint. It is natural only because he has been feeding his ego, and believing that he, of himself, is something, when the truth is that he is something only because he is one with the Tree of Life." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 2:15,16 (KJV)
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Matthew 23:9 (KJV)
9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

"Let us return once more to the branch that has been cut off from the tree, a branch that at this moment is laden with fruit. Imagine how proud that branch of the tree might be of its wonderful fruit, and how it might think, 'What a glorious thing I am! I am so beautiful! I have such exquisite flowers! I can bear such luscious fruit!' Then imagine what might happen to all this fruitage in just a few days when, because the branch has been severed from the tree, life is no longer feeding that branch, and when life no longer feeds it, there is nothing left for it to do but to wither, and naturally there will be no more flowers and no more fruit of which to be proud." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 15:5 (KJV)
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

"But look again and see that branch back on its tree: now there is one tree and one life, and the life of the tree is the life of every branch of the tree. There is no union there because there are not two: there is just one. There can be dozens of branches, but there is only one life, one intelligence, one source of supply-just one-and therefore, no single branch of a tree could ever be in conflict with any other branch of that tree." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 19:16,17 (to :) (KJV)
16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God:

I Corinthians 6:17 (KJV)
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

Psalms 139:7-10 (KJV)
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

"Now for a moment try to visualize a branch of a tree that is cut off, set off by itself, having no relationship with the tree whatsoever, and you will understand what is meant by twoness. Moreover, were it Possible for any one part of the tree to have an ego, it would also be possible for a branch to become envious of all the good that is on the tree and want some of it, or the tree, seeing the glory of the branch, might want to subdue or possess it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

"There may be a hundred papayas on one tree, but there is only one life, one tree, and anything that injures the tree ultimately injures all parts of the tree. The life of the tree constitutes the life of every branch, and of every piece of fruit on it. If each papaya felt that it had a life, a dignity, and an identity of its own, there would soon be a struggle. Only because of the oneness of the fruit with the tree can the tree, branches, and fruit all abide together harmoniously." ~Joel S Goldsmith

1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Father, I know that I can of mine own self do nothing… The Spirit within, It doeth all the Work… I surrender Father to thy will be done, on earth as it Is in Heaven…. I am so content to patiently wait upon Your Word - I Know that when Your Direction Comes to me It will be Clear and Still, but It will Thunder in my Heart…. In Humble trust, I await your Life to Act in Me…In Oneness, I rejoice… al.within

"The only strength there is, is in spiritual union, but that in itself is a paradox. There cannot really be a spiritual union because there are not two to unite. There is only one Self, and as long as I recognize that the Selfhood of me is the Selfhood of you, I cannot be antagonistic toward you, but neither can I unite with you because there are not two of us: there is only One. There may be many forms, but back of the forms there is the One." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 5:30,31 (KJV)
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

Romans 8:38,39 (KJV)
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, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I John 4:12, & 17 (KJV)
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

God Is, therefore there is no Individual Expression or Activity separate and apart from God. Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence Includes you and me. ~Al Denninger

"Some contend that in union there is strength, but this is a fallacy. Ever since time began, tribes have been uniting, countries have been uniting, and churches have been uniting, but so far no such union has brought about permanent strength. It lasts for a while, then some other combination arises and falls to make way for still another combination. There is no strength in any union founded by human beings, nor has one ever proved to be enduring. ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 10:1-4 (KJV)
1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Proverbs 3:5-7 (to :) (KJV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes:

Flesh loves to join things together, but there are no separate things to join together, there is only One Kingdom infinitely Expressed. Yes, and there is only one Righteousness, and only one Way… ~Al Denninger

"This poses the question: Is it possible for human beings to live together harmoniously, or must they live in constant warfare of one nature or another? None of the efforts made to bring about peace on earth and good will among men has ever been successful for any length of time, largely because these efforts have been based on attempting to unite people humanly, when for the most part they have no common interest." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

John 15:5,6 (KJV)
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Man, whose breath is in his nostrils, is living aware only of his own personal ego - relying on his own reasoning power and personal effort for the things of life. Staying in material consciousness man will eventually be cut off from his source of life and wither. F

or Peace to endure, we must Consciously Connect to the Spiritual Vine of Life by Grace and Abide there. Let us gather together now, with only one common interest - to Dwell in Spiritual Oneness with God, and in doing so we will Realize Eternal Peace with every Infinite Expression of God. Peace matters. ~Al Denninger
