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 May 11th, 2020, we began Chapter 19
"ATTAINING DIVINE SONSHIP"

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 Master, himself, even after having made the transition from being a Hebrew rabbi to being the Christ, was tempted three times, which indicated that there was enough of personal sense left to tempt him by saying: 'With this power, you can make yourself great. Show this power; show the world that you and God are on such intimate terms that He will not let anything happen to you. Show the world that you have all the supply in the world because you are so close to God; show the world that you are a saint.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 4:1-3,5-6,8-9 (KJV)
1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered.
3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

Only personal sense that thinks it is somehow separate from God can be tempted or distracted… ~Al Denninger

"When the transition takes place, sometimes slowly or sometimes in a flash, it always leaves us with a trace of our old self. This is a difficult period because we have glimpses of what spiritual living can be, and yet at the same time we have the frustrating experience of not being able to live in the Spirit continuously. While our old unillumined self does not dominate the scene, its shadow still lingers, and we are often tempted to indulge in the old habits and modes of life. So there is a need for great patience until the son of God has been more fully raised up in us." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Thessalonians 3:5 (KJV)
5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

James 1:12 (KJV)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

James 5:7,8 (KJV)
7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

James 1:17 (KJV)
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Do not be concerned with stepping forward or back on your Spiritual Journey. If you are on your Path to Righteousness, how wonderful it is to be on it. Be patient, be steady, be focused, and be unaffected by illusive distractions along the way. There is only one invariable Truth. Look up! Always, look up, for I Am with you. ~Al Denninger

"The final experience is the annihilation of our human self, of its good qualities as well as its evil; it is 'dying daily' until even the best of humanhood is gone, and spiritual identity is revealed. Death to the materialistic concept of life and a rebirth of the Spirit- this is what takes place through our spiritual unfoldment and progress on the Path." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 15:31 I die (KJV)
31 …I die daily.

I Corinthians 15:36 (KJV)
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

I Corinthians 15:50-54 (KJV)
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
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.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

An illusion is an illusion - whether it is good or bad makes no difference. Seek ye the Truth, and in Conscious Awareness of Reality we are reborn, and all the former lies fall away into nothingness. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson – May 30, 2020

“In our first stage of spiritual development we were improving our humanhood merely by virtue of our greater awareness of a spiritual Presence. In the second stage we were consciously improving our humanhood so as to measure up to our highest concept of goodness, virtue, integrity, loyalty, and fidelity, using the mind as an instrument for the activity of the Spirit. But in the third stage all this is taken from us. In this degree we cannot rejoice in our benevolences, in our health, or in our wealth because now we see that we do not have any of these of ourselves. The Christ, the spiritual Son, is our life, our health, our wealth, and the source of our good. This spiritual Selfhood, this Messiah which is within us—this is our good, the source of it, the experience of it, the expression of it. In this there is no little human ‘I’ left.” ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ephesians 3:14-19 (KJV)
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

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.

I John 3:2 (KJV)
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

And so it is, there are steps and stages in which, we learn, learn to Know, and then Experience… If we stay focused, we keep moving onward and upward in our Awareness. ~Al Denninger

"The first flush of enthusiasm on the spiritual path brought to us a sense that being healthy is a proof of our spiritual understanding, and being wealthy is, of course, another great proof of the degree of that understanding. But in the Third Degree we rise into the consciousness where there is no health and there is no wealth. There is neither good health nor bad health; there is neither virtue nor vice; there is neither honor nor dishonor; there are neither high people nor low people; there are no greats, near-greats, or not-so-greats: there is only a spiritual state of being which is described as 'My kingdom,' My consciousness, the Christ-consciousness-and that is not a state of improved humanhood." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 18:36 (to :) (KJV)
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world:

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.

Let us rest now, in the Peace and Righteous Knowing, which is beyond human understanding. ~Al Denninger

"When this experience of living in God first comes to us, it is disturbing because, just as in our first stage we were 'dying' to the negative sense of life and being reborn into a more positive sense, now we are 'dying' all over again. This is not only an annihilation of our undesirable humanhood, but it is also an annihilation even of our good humanhood, and at first it is frightening and disconcerting as veil after veil drops away, and we come face to face with naked truth." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 3:16 (to .) (KJV)
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.

I Corinthians 13:10 & 12 (KJV)
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

How am I known? I am Known by God, as an individual Expression, made in His Own Image. In God's Eyes there is no up, down, or otherwise, only the Perfection of I AM. If God Knows me that way - then why would I ever think I am anything less?… ~Al Denninger

"In this Third Degree we are no longer good or bad, we are no longer well or sick, and we are no longer rich or poor: we are just a state of divine being, and it is not that we are that of ourselves; it is that This that has taken possession of us is it. There is then no personal responsibility for supply or for health: our only responsibility is to live in God." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Galations 2:20 I live; (to 2nd :) (KJV)
20 … I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:

"In our humanhood we are a sleeping entity, but when we awaken, what do we find? We find ourselves in His image and likeness; we find that there is a God, that God cares for His son, and that you and I are that Son. We are consciously one with God; and then we can give ourselves up to be crucified, sent to war, or to anything else that the human mind wants to do to us, and we will walk right out of the tomb, free and clear-we will walk right out of the situation. Why? Because the son of God is spiritual and, therefore, is not subject to the laws of cause and effect, nor is he subject to karmic law." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ephesians 5:14 (KJV)
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

I John 3:1,2 (KJV)
1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

John 4:23,24 (KJV)
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Awake dear friends, the Gift of Light is freely Given. All that The Father hath is thine, a Gift of Awareness, Showing The Way to ascend the next step of Consciousness. Spirit to Spirit, Soul to Soul, God Communes in Oneness. ~Al Denninger

"When we come to the third stage, which is reached by passing through a series of initiations, each marking a transition from a lower state of consciousness to a higher one, there is no sowing and there is no reaping: there is only a state of divine being, the fourth-dimensional consciousness which, when attained, enables us to live by Grace. When the son of God is raised up in us and is alive, we need take no thought, for It is of the essence of Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience; It is the All-knowing, the All-powerful, the All-presence, and It does these things for us." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:11 (KJV)
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.

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

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.

When we are about The Father's Business, the Living Activity of Love, we are proving what is that Good and Perfect Will of God. ~Al Denninger

"It is difficult for anyone living in this consciousness of the Third Degree to understand a person who steals or lies, or who attempts to gain his ends by false advertising. What must be going on in a mentality that engages in such practices when there is no need for them? 'The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof,' and therefore, is not all that the Father has ours? Yet in this higher consciousness, we never consciously think of these truths; they never enter our mind except when someone presents the opposite picture to us, and there is the need to assure him of God's loving, omnipresent care." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:12 (KJV)
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.

John 8:23 (KJV)
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

"It is like the mathematician so well-grounded in his science that he never for a moment is tempted to believe that twelve times twelve is one hundred forty-three. There is simply a complete awareness of one hundred forty-four. The mathematician would not be able to understand those of us who are always faced with the temptation that two times two is not four, and three times three is not nine." ~Joel S Goldsmith

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Truth doesn't really need to be proved, it just Is.

"With the advent of the Experience, however, all of this changes. Very slowly it begins to dawn in consciousness that we are no longer the person we were because now we are not depending on some remote God, thinking or talking about a far-off God, and certainly not trying to influence Him. Not only are we not trying to be good, and of course, anyone who advances into the Third Degree could not be bad, but now there is no awareness of goodness because there is nothing with which to compare it: there is no temptation to be bad. In fact, nothing from without now acts as any kind of a temptation to us." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

I Corinthians 2:11 even,12 (KJV)
11 …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.

In the Realm of Spirit, there is no self. There is only Love, Loving. ~Al Denninger

"Such heights of consciousness are not experienced in the first two stages. There we have only our own thoughts, hopes, and the assurance of the mystics who have written the Scriptures and the metaphysics of the world. These are a staff upon which we lean, and they stand with us until we receive the Experience." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Proverbs 3:5 lean (KJV)
5 … lean not unto thine own understanding.

Matt 14:26-31 (to 2nd ,) (KJV)
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him,

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.

Luke 9:23 (KJV)
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

"In this third stage, we outgrow and undo all the work of the first and second stages. We stop depending on a God, and while this may sound incredible to those not yet advanced to this stage, it is not too difficult to do because, with the experience of the Christ, everything is provided for us before we know we need it. The Christ imparts wisdom, provides protection, and bestows love, and there is no need to depend on anything without: there is always That which is going before us to make 'the crooked places straight'; there is always That which is walking beside us as our safety and security." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Zechaiah 4:6 Not (KJV)
6 … Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

"Spirit and Its outer activity are one; Spirit and Its formations are one; Spirit and Its creation are one. Spirit does not create in the sense of their being a Spirit and a creation: Spirit is the substance that appears outwardly as form, not as the form of what we see, hear, taste, touch, or smell but as spiritual form. The impressions received through the senses represent our concept of that spiritual Presence that is here." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"In the Third Degree we do not try to demonstrate anything in the outer world: we are seeking only that inner release or peace which, in itself, is the demonstration and the attainment of our goal. It is not to be attained for any purpose, but only for itself, and it produces an effect in the outer experience that follows just as daylight accompanies the sun. The sun does not rise and then produce light: the sun itself constitutes the light. Just so, we discover that there is no God to give us health, supply, or companionship; there is no God to give us anything, but there is God, and when this Spirit is consciously realized, It is the very substance of our outer experience." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"Probably the only way that this can be explained is that in our humanhood we experience pleasure or satisfaction because of something that takes place out here. For example, learning that some activity has been successful or awakening on Christmas Day to find ourselves blessed with beautiful gifts arouses joy in us; but, on the other hand, failure or the absence of gifts might bring sorrow. Our joy as well as our sorrow is usually prompted by outer occurrences, whereas from the moment that this transitional experience begins, joy, which is an integral part of our being, bubbles up from within without any external cause, and when sorrow comes, it is recognized as 'this world' and is quickly dissolved." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"When an immunity is developed to material and mental laws, we live in an entirely different world because then we do not have to take the law into consideration, nor do we have to be concerned about things. Having found the kingdom of God and dwelling in it, something else is taking over the responsibility for our entire experience. The government is on His shoulder, on this divine Son which in the Third Degree is now raised up in us. In our humanhood It was dormant; It stood by and could do nothing. Regardless of what wrong was done to us, we had to resign ourselves to it unless our human wisdom or strength could provide an escape for us, and in most cases it could not." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 2:42-49 (KJV)
42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

Here's an example of Divine Protection: Luke tells us of a 12 year old boy who is about The Father's Business - clearly in this-world, to be seen by those who were ready - but not of this-world. His Presence Glowed with Perfect Peace and Wisdom and he knew no fear, no worry without his parents or danger of any kind. In fact, he was quite comfortably, in this-world and not of it, Resting on The Father's Word. ~Al Denninger

"As we come to an awareness of a spiritual Presence within us, we gradually become immune to these laws because as we pass into the third stage, the Presence lives our life, and It cannot be influenced, nor can It be acted upon by physical or mental laws: It is immune to them for they are only theories, superstitions, and universal belief in two powers. In proportion as the son of God raised up in us, these laws do not operate, and not only are we not receptive or responsive to them, but we aid in nullifying them for others who may come to us." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"As human beings we live under man-made laws which continue to operate as long as we remain in ignorance, and until we are awakened, we are held in slavery to all kinds of mental and physical laws." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:5 (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.

Ephesians 5:14 (KJV)
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Living in this-world consciousness is permanent, until we are determined to be Awakened from our ignorance. ~Al Denninger

"CHAPTER XIX

ATTAINING DIVINE SONSHIP

When we have encompassed the First and Second Degrees, a new dimension of life, an entirely different area of consciousness, opens up to us. In that moment there is something within us that is no longer a quotation, an affirmation, or a recalling of truth: it is an experience. We have entered the Third Degree, where we no longer live by the standards of this world, where the values are different, and life is governed not so much by what the outer law is as by what our inner integrity is. It is at this point that we pass from law to Grace." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 5:16-18 (to ,) (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.
18 And all things are of God,

When every last gram of ego [this-world consciousness] has dissolved in Truth, all there is is, the Awareness of Christ Consciousness. ~Al Denninger
