Infinite Way Students of the Ozarks

"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 Julu 30th, 2019, we began Chapter 13
"THE UNILLUMINED AND THE ILLUMINED"

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 9 years of consecutive Lessons for your further review and study!

"It is vitally important that every aspirant on the spiritual path should recognize and know the difference between these two approaches. Whatever exists on the material or mental plane of life can be used in two ways, for good as well as for evil. The effects of spiritual or transcendental consciousness, on the other hand, can be only good." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:28 (KJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose

Romans 8:9 (to .) (KJV)
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

And so, the focus of our Practice is important. We must Dwell in the Spirit and Abide there as much as possible all day….Every day. Good Pours out and Blesses Itself. ~Al Denninger

"Two types of schools therefore developed side by side: those that taught the power of the mind, and the purely spiritual that revealed how to unfold spiritually and develop the transcendental consciousness. On the level of mind, great works and great feats of magic can be performed, and sometimes this deludes people into believing that they are witnessing God in action, when it is nothing more nor less than the action of the mind." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:5-8 (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.

The mind may have a good and honorable purpose, but an activity of the flesh has nothing to do with Spirit. ~Al Denninger

Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

"During this period, and a thousand years or more before it, man learned the hidden secrets of the spiritual life in these schools of wisdom. It should be remembered, however, that the secrets imparted were not the same in every school because when we come to the subject of truth, we find that truth is revealed on two different levels, the mental and the spiritual." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:11-13 (KJV)
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

John 4:24 (KJV)
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

We have this same choice to make today, one is not necessarily better than the other; but you can't ride both horses at the same time - do we focus with the mind, through thought or by faith for a demonstration in this-world? Or, do we focus our Awareness on the Omnipresence of God Spirit to Spirit, Soul to Soul. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 19, 2019

"Christ Jesus is perhaps the most outstanding example of an attained transcendental consciousness. Very little is known of his early life beyond the fact that he was of a family of carpenters, that he himself worked as a carpenter, that it is believed he was educated in the Essene Order, and that he was trained as a rabbi. Eventually, he went out to preach, but because he possessed gifts that the other rabbis of that day lacked- gifts that even Gamaliel, the greatest of the Hebrew teachers, did not possess- the great gifts of healing and supplying, of leadership, teaching, and of revelation, and because he often preached contrary to the teachings of the Hebrew hierarchy; he aroused its ire." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 3:16-17 (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 1:17 (KJV)
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Thank you Jesus; for your integrity, your dedication, your courage, your Magnificent Gift of Spiritual Freedom, and Your Endless Love. ~Al Denninger

"So it is, then, that this man Moses, with no special or outstanding talents to set him apart from other men, became at that moment of attainment a leader and a liberator of a whole people. Throughout the history of the Hebrews, from Abraham right on up to Christ Jesus, whenever an individual was endowed with the transcendental consciousness, he, too, was given the strength and wisdom to bring a measure of freedom, light, grace, and healing to the people under his care." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 12:32 (KJV)
32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

John 10:27 (KJV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Be still, and be steady… The Work you need to do, shows up when you are ready, and not before. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 17, 2019

"A case in point, of course, is Moses who, brought up in the social climate of the court and well educated, was just an ordinary person until that one great mountaintop experience when he came face to face with God, received his illumination, and attained transcendental consciousness to the extent that a whole new faculty developed within him. He was lifted to such heights that he was enabled to return to Egypt and, without taking up the sword, to lead the Hebrews right out from under Pharaoh. Under the direction and protection of this transcendental consciousness, he guided them out from slavery, lack, limitation, ignorance, and superstition, across the wilderness until they came into view of the Promised Land, and brought them into some measure of freedom and light, the measure of course being only that of which they were capable at the time." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 12:5-6 (KJV)
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

I Peter 4:10-11 (KJV)
10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Are you an ordinary person that is dedicated to Knowing God and desirous of the Mountain Top Experience? You must first be dedicated and patient and take no though for the things of this-world, and surrender your consciousness to God's Direction. Surrender to God and Let Christ Consciousness Teach you. Dear friends, I can Lift you and point The Way - I have been Ordered and Ordained to do that - but You must have your own Mountaintop Experience… ~Al Denninger

John 16:7 (to 2nd ;) (KJV)
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you;

And when the Comforter has Initiated and Instructed you, your administration will change… Your Life will change… Follow The Directions and do Work Given thee by Grace exactly and immediately. Do not think you can do His Work… Be silent and patient until you can Let Him put His Words in your mouth. ~Al Denninger

Matt 10:19 (take) ,20 (KJV)
19 …take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

The Daily Lesson - September 16, 2019

Illumination really means going from a human state of consciousness to a spiritual state of consciousness, the transcendental or Christ-consciousness, which is above and beyond the human. While it is not beyond possibility for any human being to attain this in some degree, it cannot be experienced by the human state of consciousness. When a measure of light comes to a person, it brings with it new faculties and new experiences. 'There are diversities of gifts.' Among these is the gift of healing which some enlightened leaders have had; others have had a gift for spiritual teaching, that is, the ability to lift a student above his own humanhood into an enlightened state; others have received by Grace an inner power of prayer which has enabled them to release many, many persons from their discords and inharmonies." ~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.

II Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Ephesians 4:24 (KJV)
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

I Cor 12:4-11 (KJV)
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Our Work will be Given us to do… When we are Ready.
There are an infinite number of Individual Expressions of God. Each Working together for Good. ~Al Denninger

"Whenever an individual attains a very high state of consciousness or what is understood to be illumination, he is said to be enlightened. Each of the great spiritual teachers, Christ Jesus, Buddha, Shankara, received complete illumination and became the light of his particular world." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 3:2 (KJV)
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

John 14:6 (KJV)
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

"Many different terms have been used to describe the enlightened consciousness. In Christian mysticism, this enlightenment is sometimes referred to as Christ-consciousness; in India, the aspirant who has received a measure of spiritual light is said to have attained the Buddha-mind; whereas in Zen Buddhism the term used is satori. The terms are different, but the idea is the same." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Philippians 2:5 (KJV)
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 5:1 (KJV)

Let God be your Mind and Your Conscious Activity. ~Al Denninger

"In such a school, initiation, which was a significant landmark on the spiritual journey, always took the form of going from darkness to light, from material sense to spiritual consciousness, from the unillumined state of consciousness to the illumined; and while the method of study, practice, and unfoldment might differ from place to place, and from one era to another, the goal and the result were always the same- the development of a transcendental state of consciousness." ~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.

Galatians 5:22 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Illumination comes from God - not from man or schools or organizations. Love Lifts me and Leads me… along The Way. ~Al Denninger

"These ancient schools of wisdom had neither silver nor gold to give, neither name nor fame. What they had to offer was spiritual illumination, the transcendental consciousness which would lead the aspirant into harmony, joy, peace, and glory, but not always in the way that he might outline." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Acts 3:5,6 &11,12 (to :) (KJV)
5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee:

11 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering.
12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

The lame man at the Temple Gate Beautiful was schooled in a Way that he could never have imagined. He asked for temporary alms but His body and mind were Lifted into permanent Harmony and Joy - Peace and Glory. He would never be the same again… The "School" is where you Find it - and in many cases It Finds You. ~Al Denninger

We are men of earth until we know the truth and demonstrate a sufficient degree of it so that we reach a state of consciousness which is no longer fettered by ignorance, superstition, and fear. In that state of consciousness, we are enabled to penetrate behind the realm of mind into the realm of divine Consciousness, but it takes spiritual Illumination to make that possible.

I Corinthians 2:14-16 (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.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Christ Consciousness opens the door to The Kingdom of God, and once we enter in and Abide there, the entire picture of human existence is dissolved. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 10, 2019

"Many years ago this wisdom was taught in the mystery schools, in some fraternal lodges, and in religious orders, but today there are no such schools on earth. Such as do exist on the inner plane are available only to those who have spiritualized their consciousness to the extent that they can find entrance into the spiritual orders which exist behind the scenes, that is, beyond the realm of the human mind. Those who have thus spiritualized their consciousness through knowing the truth make a transition from being the man of earth, described by Paul, to being that 'man in Christ . . . whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 12:2 (KJV)
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.

II Corinthians 12:2,3 (KJV)
2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)

And so it is, in Stillness we must Spiritualize our Consciousness and be Transformed in Christ where we are able to See ourselves in this-world and not of it. ~Al Denninger

"Let us face it: we are mentally lazy. The truth is available, but we do not know the truth. We read it. We read it and say, 'Isn't it beautiful!' We hear it, and we say that it is even more beautiful, even more powerful. And then probably we go home and either wish we could make it come true or hope to find a spiritual master who will do it for us. The fact is that it is not going to be done for us by any spiritual master now, any more than it was done by spiritual masters in the days when there were more of them on earth than there are today." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 3:4,5 (KJV)
4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
Galations 6:4-8 (KJV)
4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5 For every man shall bear his own burden.
6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Matt 6:6 (KJV)
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

"This truth was in existence thousands of years before Jesus. It did not set many people free, but that may have been because only a limited number were permitted to learn about this truth. Unfortunately, it has not set many free since that time because of mental inertia which is only a polite term with which to describe downright laziness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 26:40,41 (KJV)
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Ephesians 5:14 (to 2nd ,) (KJV)

"The moment a person begins to know the truth, he breaks down barriers: he is set free, whether from economic lack, bigotry, bias, nationalistic pride, or from narrow religious convictions. The truth reveals the universal nature of God's love which is bestowed alike on saint and sinner, and is not reserved for those who belong to a particular church." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 8:32 (KJV)
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Acts 10:34 (KJV)
34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

"It must have been a great struggle for Paul to break through the traditional narrowness of the existing Judaic sects and to begin giving truth to the Gentiles. It must have been a great wrench for Peter to learn that he must call nothing unholy that God had made, and for him, too, to begin preaching to the Gentiles. But when Peter and Paul arrived at the state of consciousness where they were willing to preach to the pagans, and as they began to bear witness to the spiritual truth that there is neither Greek nor Jew, bond nor free, and that we are all one in Christ Jesus, they broke down the barriers of spiritual ignorance." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Genesis 1:31 (to .) (KJV)
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

Galatians 3:26-28 (KJV)
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

When the Realization of the Truth of Being annuls narrowness and dissolves ignorance there is no need to revisit the illusion. We are no longer held by an imaginary grip. We move forward as though they never existed and are free to spend more time with God and learn to be His servant. ~Al Denninger

"Even though the masses could not receive the truth the Master taught, there were many persons who did, and because of that, for the next three hundred years, mighty works were done by those who had become followers of the Master's teaching: spiritual healing continued to be practiced; every person was given freedom of thought; and inroads were made on the dogmatism of some of the Hebrew sects which taught that only the Hebrews were worthy of being given the truth." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:31-33 (KJV)
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Acts 9:15 (KJV)
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:

"Although the Master did teach this truth, he perhaps recognized that the masses, as such, could not at their stage of consciousness understand it. Probably, he hoped that here and there among them, there would be one or two, a dozen, or a hundred who would be able to perceive the spiritual nature of truth and demonstrate it, and that as time went on these dozens here, and hundreds there, would perpetuate the message and continue to give it to succeeding generations until eventually everyone would have the truth." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 7:14 (KJV)
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Ecclesiastes 11:6 (to :) (KJV)
6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand:

John 6:45 (to .) (KJV)
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God.

Very few are ready to listen and receive The Word of God. Be patient, be steady, Practice the Presence and Love unconditionally…. Wait until you feel a spark in their Consciousness before you sew the Good Seed, because in order for It to Grow the Seed must fall on Holy Ground.

Dear friends, when I started my Work in The Father's Business, I thought, "If I could only reach just one individual in my lifetime, it would all be worth it."

"Some scholars believe that Jesus was a member of the Essenes, but parted from them because he felt that truth should be given to the people, whereas the hierarchy felt that the people were not ready for it.

24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

John 18:36,37 (KJV)

37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

"At the time of the Master, Judaism was divided into three major sects, the Essenes, the Sadducees, and the Pharisees. Of all these, the Essenes probably had developed the highest degree of spiritual wisdom. The practices of this sect, however, differed in so many respects from those of other groups that it was greatly persecuted and eventually became almost an underground movement. Because of this, and in my opinion, primarily because of this, the Essenes became the most highly organized and disciplined of any of the Judaic sects. They came to a place where they lived almost entirely by rules and regulations, and the impartation of spiritual wisdom played only a minor part. In fact, for the First seven or eight years of a person's membership in that order, he was not allowed to know any of the secrets of its wisdom. Such an emphasis on discipline, rules, and regulations not only killed whatever inspiration an individual might have brought to a group, but it undoubtedly destroyed any hope he may have had of reaching his goal." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Isaiah 29:13 (KJV)
13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

The early Hebrews also conducted religious schools where those with a religious bent were accepted for instruction and eventually became priests or rabbis- some lesser lights and some greater.

"One of the main requirements was that students remain for at least six, seven, eight, or nine years in order to receive instruction, and as they absorbed the lessons taught, they were advanced by degrees. Undoubtedly, in some of these schools, there were teachers of great spiritual wisdom, although it was the mental and the occult realm of thought that received the most attention in those days." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"For these reasons, and probably many others, practically the only place where revealed truth was taught was in the mystery schools that existed thousands of years ago in Egypt and later on in Greece and in Rome. There were also such schools in India, and some of them were found as far north as Tibet. Those of a religious or philosophical turn of mind became the students in those schools or in the religious orders where truth was taught.

In order to ensure against the misuse of truth, a candidate for membership in a school of wisdom was required to pass very rigorous tests and give evidence that he was not entering the school for personal or selfish motives, or with any idea of immediate material gain, but that he was entering it in a sense of dedicating his life to the most High and proving his dedication by service to mankind." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 10:1-11 (KJV)
1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Jesus' task for the 70 was an arduous test. It would teach them to Live every day by Grace alone and Rejoice in this Service to God - not for any profit, agenda, or propose other than to be the Activity of Love Loving. Just like theirs, our purpose is to Behold the Kingdom of God, Rest in It and Be Included in God's Activity. Once we have Felt His Way Flow through us, we will be impelled to further dedicate our Lives to His Service… Silver and Gold cannot buy the beautiful Harmony Felt in Being God's Instrument. Why? Because there is no use for Silver and Gold in God's Kingdom. ~Al Denninger

"Furthermore, after struggling against great odds and working with only the most primitive of tools to provide shelter, food, and clothing for their families, it is quite understandable why, upon returning home from a day of such labor, the men would be more eager for food and sleep than for study and meditation. The women, also, with their large families and arduous duties would hardly be ready for serious study or have any interest in the deep and abiding things of life." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 11:28 (KJV)
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 4:18-20 (KJV)
18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

Psalms 46:10 (to :) (KJV)

"In the early days truth remained hidden from people and could only be found in schools of wisdom, in monasteries, or in secret societies. The elect did not believe that the people - and when I say the people, I am speaking of people like you and me - would be interested in the truth or be able to handle it. There was perhaps some measure of justification at that time for withholding truth form the masses because of the very difficulty of circulating truth-teachings widely. There were no printing presses, and inasmuch as all manuscripts had to be written by hand, there were not many of them available. Reading and writing, too, were skills which even kings had not mastered, and for this reason, if for no other, any kind of study met with almost unsurmountable difficulties." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 6:22-27 (to 2nd ,) (KJV)
22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life,

Most of people are looking, asking, or pleading to be filled with some temporary supply. Few there be that are willing to spend 40 days, much less, 40 years in the desert to be filled with an Infinite Invisible Spirit.

"Spiritual illumination comes in a moment when 'ye think not' but that moment comes only as the result of days, weeks, and years of effort and dedication. Fortunate, indeed, is the student who has a teacher to guide and instruct him as he travels the Way, and to say to him, 'This is the way, walk ye in it,'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:24-25 (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.

Matthew 6:33 (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

"This way is the acknowledgement of our divine sonship. No matter what appearance touches our life in the form of sin, illness, lack, or unhappy human relationships, the way to surmount these is the way of sonship or oneness, and this way no one can walk for us: it can be walked only by us. Spiritual teachers can be our guides on the Way; they can make smooth our path today or tomorrow, but we alone can take the Way, we alone can live by the Way, we alone can walk the Way. And how is this done? Only by an activity of our consciousness, only by virtue of our knowing the truth of the Way:" ~Joel S Goldsmith

100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

"The unillumined and the illumined are the same person living two different lives. In the absence of illumination, we are individuals with many problems, and with unhappy, unfulfilled, incomplete, and unfinished lives, but with our first glimpse of the spiritual life, even though we seem to remain the same person - wear the same size clothes, the same hats and shoes, and probably even look the same in the mirror - we are not the same: we are living from a different standpoint, with a different experience, and under different conditions." ~Joel S Goldsmith

23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

"In his state of unillumined being, each person has a life of his own to live, a life probably destined to be manifested on earth for threescore years and ten- a little less or a little more- a life subject to disease and death, a life that began and must therefore end. This constitutes the unillumined, the human race. When a person is illumined, however, that is, when he knows the truth of his real identity, he loses all capacity for sin or poverty, and for disease as well; he loses the propensity and the potentiality for evil in his life, but only in proportion to his illumination." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"Those who are in sickness, sin, or poverty are the unillumined: they do not know their true identity, and they are therefore wandering in the wilderness, seeking for harmony, but seeking for it in the wrong direction. They are struggling for things, for fame and fortune, honestly believing that when they attain these, they will have attained their goal of happiness, peace, and contentment. But do they? Are they not usually in the same misery they were before they attained them? True, they may be enjoying their misery in more luxurious surroundings, but the misery is there nevertheless, and the reason is that regardless of the outer attainment, the inner self is still starving and thirsting." ~Joel S Goldsmith

He may never know when this actually happens: all he knows is that a curiosity has developed in him, a hunger, or a thirst for something- he knows not what- that drives him forward.

That which they have not heretofore succeeded in gathering to themselves by material means, they now hope to get from God. Even though this is only a faint glimpsing of the Path, it is at least an opening wedge because it does turn some people from the expectation that they can get from the material world that which will satisfy to the belief in some invisible Source from, or through which, their good may come.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

John 8:32 (KJV) 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Our complete Freedom is Realized in direct proportion to our Awareness of Truth. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - August 6, 2019

"The parenthesis is human life, and our purpose on this Path is to remove ourselves from the parenthesis while we are here on earth. If we do not do that here, we will still have the opportunity afterward, but the passing from this plane into another experience does not of itself remove the parenthesis and place us in eternity or give us immortality. In fact, if we leave this stage of our experience in a human sense of life, we awaken in a human sense of life in another parenthesis. The other side of the grave is still a parenthesis." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:10 (KJV)
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

God is always available, His Kingdom is Omnipresent. ~Al Denninger

Romams 8:9 (to .) (KJV)
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

But we must Dwell in the Spirit, not in the flesh to Be Lifted up and Feel His Presence. This learning to Dwell in Spirit, will take as long as it takes… ~Al Denninger

"Even death does not remove the parenthesis and put us into the circle of eternal life. The wiping out of the parenthesis is accomplished as an activity of consciousness; it is a 'dying' to our humanhood and a 'birth' to our spiritual identity. That is not a physical death or birth: it is the 'dying daily' and the being reborn of the Spirit of which Paul spoke. It is an act of consciousness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 15:31 (KJV)
31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

Ephesians 4:22-24 (KJV)
22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness

We must forsake any and all sense of this-world power. God is Omnipotent, the One and only Power, the Alpha and Omega, over all in all. If a thought of separation from God attempts to rekindle, we must stop in our tracks and Look Up. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - August 4, 2019

"If we were willing to surrender each day what we had yesterday, we would find something better tomorrow, but our very attempts to hold on to what we have takes it away from us by force. The only way in which we can remove the parenthesis harmoniously and without pain is by allowing the changes to come without living in or trying to hold on to, the past, and by not believing that every change means failure, even though it may temporarily carry with it lack of some of the material comforts. The spiritual universe has a different set of values from that of the material." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Exodus 16:4 (KJV)
4 Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

Can you learn to Trust God? Will you? ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - August 3, 2019

"Advancing evolving consciousness would ensure an improved state of affairs, but that improvement probably will not come, as it should come, as a natural evolution of progress, because human beings are too determined to hold on to what they have, and they will not give up their limitation for something unknown. Human nature tries to hold on to the past, to hold on to present limitations: it is unwilling to break through for something else." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 14:17,18 (KJV)
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Dear One, There is no mystery and no secret. I Give you the Present. Rest ye in It. ~Al Denninger

Luke 8:14-15 (KJV)
14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Thank you Father for your beautiful Garden. I will keep my feet rooted in You. ~al.within

"One of the evils of living inside the parenthesis is that we resist change. As long as our particular parenthesis is halfway comfortable we want to live in it. It does not even have to be a healthy or wealthy parenthesis so long as there is enough for survival and the pain is not too severe. But while human nature resists change, spiritual unfoldment compels change, breaking up the old patterns continuously. In fact, spiritual progress demands that every form be broken, no matter how good it is. No matter how comfortable life may be, Spirit will not let us rest in some degree of finiteness, even if that finiteness should be what the world calls a million dollars or its equivalent. To Spirit, that is still finiteness and Infinity does not mean that Spirit is going to give us two million: it means that It is going to give us greater freedom, greater harmony, and increasingly less dependence on material forms and limitations." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Jeremiah 9:23,24 (to 2nd,) (KJV)
23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me,

Matt 19:23,24 (KJV)
23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:33 (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

II Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Coasting is really slippage and decline…. We cannot live on yesterday's manna or store it for tomorrow, because it is only given us for today. Keep your focus on God and His Infinite continuous Supply. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - August 1, 2019

"The moment we perceive that there is but one Life and that we are living that Life, the parenthesis is being removed, at least being rubbed out that there are only faint traces of it left. For centuries to come, there may be remnants of that parenthesis in the lives of all of us, but it will not be such a hard and fast parenthesis that it imprisons us in mortality, that is, in a material concept of life. Every meditation that results in an inner response hastens the fading out of the parenthesis. Every experience of depth in meditation makes us less subject to the limitations of the parenthesis, less subject to the calendar, to climate, and to the changing economic conditions of the world." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Psalm 121:7-8 (KJV)
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore

Psalm 23:6 (KJV)
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Accepting Omnipresence is Accepting Life Everlasting. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - July 31, 2019

"What we are really doing on the spiritual path is trying to wipe out that parenthesis by realizing that we are not living in any form of human limitation: time or space, calendars or climates. The more we attain a living realization of the spiritual nature of our being through meditation, the fainter the parenthesis becomes and the closer we are to becoming one with Infinity and Eternality." Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 4:18 (KJV)
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

As we look to Spirit and open an avenue of Awareness of Truth, we are Opening the Way of Christ Consciousness to Unfold in our Experience, and Lead us closer and closer to Infinite Being. ~Al Denninger

"PART TWO
RISING OUT OF THE PARENTHESIS
Attaining the Mystical Consciousness

CHAPTER XIII
THE UNILLUMINED AND THE ILLUMINED

The parenthesis in which we live consists of the degree of mental or material limitation that we come under through the universal belief in two powers. Removing the parenthesis means unseeing the human picture and becoming consciously aware of our spiritual Selfhood." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 14:17 (KJV)
17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

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

Lean not unto thine own understanding. Stop now, surrender and let God teach you - Be still and Know… ~Al Denninger
