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 October 16th, 2020, we began Chapter 23
"Living In, Through, And By The Spirit"

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

The Daily Lesson - October 27, 2020

"The only way we can arrive at a state of complete Self-reliance is to attain such a measure of the fourth-dimensional consciousness that we are content to know, 'I and the Father are one, and all that the Father has is mine,' and then close our eyes to the outside world. There has to be this inner conviction: 'If there were not a soul in the world, I and my Father are still one. If I were a million miles from civilization, I and my Father are still one, and my unfoldment must come to me from within.' As we abide in that, we are free of dependence on man, whose breath is in his nostrils.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

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:

Yes, we must be content, complete and unconditional in our Trust in God. In proportion as the Infinite Invisible becomes an abiding conviction, the visible world dissolves away… ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 26, 2020

"When the fourth-dimensional consciousness is attained, even in a measure, life begins to flow more by Grace than by effort. Things come more easily and more abundantly than ever before, because with illumination comes the realization that the I of us, individualized as our consciousness, embraces infinity, and good flows forth from our consciousness into visible expression. The more we abide in the truth, 'I have meat to eat that ye know not of,' the more we bring infinity into expression." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ephesians 2:8 (KJV)
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Ephesians 4:6,7 (KJV)
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

Ephesians 3:7 (KJV)
7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

We practice, and practice, and practice… And then, in a moment that we think not, The Practice Enters Us and Flows Out through Us to where It wants to Be. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 25, 2020

"The substance of the fruit is consciousness, and whatever consciousness contains, consciousness can bring forth. Inasmuch as God is our consciousness, our consciousness, therefore, contains infinity, so the measure of our bringing forth the fruits of consciousness must be infinite. If, on the other hand, we believe that we have a consciousness of our own, we measure our fruitage in terms of our education and experience, and since these are limited, they cannot bring forth infinity. The fourth-dimensional consciousness is satisfied to have that mind which was also in Christ Jesus, but it requires illumination to be able to realize that, and until that illumination comes, we will continue to judge by appearances and thereby hold ourselves in limitation." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 15:31 (KJV)
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Luke 12:22,23 (KJV)
22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

It is a great Gift of Light and assurance to Know what we, in this class, now Know in our Hearts - that We are Included in His Infinite Kingdom, always were and always will Be. Human thought can be distracted into thinking we somehow know something of own selves. We must keep our focus Awake and sharp. ~Al Denninger

"It is much the same as stripping a tree of its fruit. What difference does it make as long as we have the tree? If the tree is still intact, in due season it will have another crop of fruit because that is the nature of the tree. And so, too, it is the nature of our consciousness to produce and reproduce itself, to multiply, so that regardless of what may be taken away, the consciousness of it remains, and tomorrow it will begin producing again." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 4:31-35 (KJV)
31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Look up. Look up. Omnipresence assures the Harvest. Christ points the Way… ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 23, 2020

"The fourth-dimensional consciousness sees the discords as well as the beauties of this world, but when it sees these, it does not become hypnotized, enthralled, or excited by them. This enlightened consciousness sees both abundance and lack as but temporary phases of human existence-here today, and perhaps gone tomorrow-full well realizing that it makes little difference what the appearance is because the reality is still there. And what is the reality? The reality is consciousness. If through our consciousness we manifest a certain amount of supply or abundance, and if for some reason it is wiped away, what difference does that make, if we still have the consciousness that brought it forth?" ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:16 But (KJV)
16 …But we have the mind of Christ.

Ephesians 1:16-18 (to ;) (KJV)
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened;

Christ Consciousness is how we able to See and Experience The Kingdom of God. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 22nd, 2020

"The human being, living in the third dimension, sees an ailing body or a disturbed mind, and longs to do something about it, whereas the fourth-dimensional consciousness sees through it. This does not mean that this higher consciousness has no awareness of the existence of such things, but to the fourth-dimensional consciousness they do not have existence as reality. That is the difference. Even Jesus Christ saw the crippled man, but while his physical eye took cognizance of this condition, his inner eye saw through the appearance to the man's Christhood." Joel S Goldsmith

From the story of The Woman at the Well: John 4:27-29 (KJV)
27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

She Knew what she Knew...without question.

John 11:1,11-14,21-25 (to:) (KJV)
1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:

Jesus said what he said to the family and friends of Lazarus to lovingly Give them the Truth in different ways - but to Give it to them in a Way each individual could understand and use in their life. Human thought will ask for some sort of correction to an appearance.

Christ doesn't see the appearance as human thought does, It Sees only the Existence of Reality without a need for a correction or healing. The I that I Am is the Resurrection, and the Life. ~Al Denninger

"Illumination is the attainment of that fourth-dimensional consciousness in which we no longer see materially, hear materially, or believe materially, but in which we see through the appearance, just as we would see through the appearance of a mirage on a desert." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:9,10 &14 (KJV)
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
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 14:8-11 (KJV)
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
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.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

The deep things of God, the Truth, the Knowing, the Seeing through the appearances, are all Spiritually Discerned. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 20th, 2020

"Even when we come to a place where we are convinced of this truth, this is not yet illumination. Illumination does not take place merely by reading words and agreeing that they are beautiful, and hoping they are true. Illumination is that moment of realization when we know that whereas before we were blind, now we see." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

I Corinthians 15:52 (KJV)
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

There is a moment, when a divine spark of Light Comes as an Inspired Release, when we shall See the Truth, Hear the Truth and Feel the Truth - all that The Father hath is Thine - and ye shall Know You are Included in The Ever-present Kingdom of God. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 19th, 2020

"But inasmuch as we are human antennas, we often find ourselves thinking the thoughts that everybody else is thinking. That is why at times fear overwhelms us, a fear that is not our fear but the universal fear that we pick up through our everyday contact with the world. This that comes to us by way of the universal mind can be fear or it can be doubt, it can be almost anything; and until we are aware of the I, those things will continue to intrude into our experience and dominate us. But that domination will become less and less, the more we realize the I. There must be that recognition of I- I, Self -complete being:

I am the embodiment of all that God is. Because of my oneness with my Source, all that is true of the Source is true of me, for I and my Source are one." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 2:15 (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.

Luke 12:21,22 (to 3rd ,) (KJV)
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,

Luke 12:32 (KJV)
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

World thought always tries to think on its own and separate itself from God. I Am complete, harmonious, and Infinite and I Include you. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 18th, 2020

"In the degree that we realize that I governs the mind and I governs the body are we illumined and free from the domination of mind and body. The mind is given to us as a thinking apparatus so that we can think what thoughts we want to think. We have a mind and we therefore determine what is going to occupy our mind." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:9,14
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.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

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

We can choose to coast along in this world or we can learn to focus on God, lean on His Understanding and be Led to Dwell in His Governance. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 17th, 2020

The truth is that life governs the external realm, but to come into agreement with that, we must understand that our body and our mind belong to us, and that it is I that governs that mind and that body, not the mind or the body that governs us.

John 14:6 (to :) (KJV)
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:

I Cor 2:16 But (KJV)
16 …But we have the mind of Christ.

Christ Consciousness is the Love and Harmony that Governs Life. ~Al Denninger

"PART THREE
LIVING IN THE CIRCLE
Living the Mystical Life

CHAPTER XXIII
LIVING IN, THROUGH, AND BY THE SPIRIT

The attainment of the fourth-dimensional or illumined consciousness is the secret of harmonious, abundant, and gracious living, living without strife or struggle, completely free from the material sense of life. This freedom of the illumined is really a freedom from ignorance because only the ignorant can cleave to the belief that life is dependent on things and people in the external realm. Is not the whole material sense of life characterized by a faith, hope, and reliance on the external? To believe that life is dependent on a heart and sustained by food alone, or that strength is dependent on the development of muscles, in short, to believe that life is subject to, or dependent on, any thing or any thought is material sense." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

Knowing or Illumined Consciousness is a deeply Felt discernment. It is the essence of Harmony - the Being of Harmony. It is a release from this-world consciousness that is Felt Spirit to Spirit, Soul to Soul within one's Being and is completely Realized without any hesitation, condition or thought. ~Al Denninger
