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 August 19th, 2020, we began Chapter 21
"The Spirit of the Lord God - Hath Anointed Me"

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 - September 19, 2020

"After this first glimpse comes to us, this first awareness that there is a Presence within us which really does miracle-working things, from then on we behold It at work. 'He performeth the thing that is appointed for me. . . . The Lord will make perfect that which concerneth me.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

A Glimpse of Truth, no matter how brief, is enough to inspire us to Focus on and Live forever in the Awareness of the Truth of Being. The Father doeth the Works, and I behold and am Included in His Omnipresent Love. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 18, 2020

"It never becomes evident as a tangible thing. Nobody will ever come up to us and say, 'Oh, you have the Christ.' But very often people do come up to us and ask, 'What are you doing lately?' or 'What are you reading or thinking? You seem to be changed, and things seem to be improving for you.' There is no recognition of the Christ as such. What has happened is that the Spirit of the Lord God is upon us, and now we are ordained to speak the truth, to heal the sick, and to comfort those in need of comfort." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 14:26,27 (to .) (KJV)
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.

The Peace the Comforter Gives is beyond words and this-world comprehension. But the Love that is Present in those who have Felt it and Live their Lives surrounded in the Glow of this Peace is Self-evident, and clearly demonstrable. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 17, 2020

"That is the I AM; that is the Christ; that is the son of God. When the son of God is conceived or born in us, from then on, if we nurture It, if we keep reaching toward It, relying on It, keep turning within and acknowledging Its presence and power, It develops and grows. We have to take It down to 'Egypt' to hide It because if we tell our friends and neighbors about It, they may ridicule us to such an extent that we may wish such a way of life had never become a part of our experience; but as we keep It secret and sacred, one day It becomes evident by Its fruits." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Proverbs 3:6 (KJV)
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

James 3:17 (KJV)
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Learn to rely on the Perfect Gift of God's Love. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 16, 2020

"In the assurance of the Presence we rest, not on our human wisdom, our human health, or human strength: we rest on It, and It is almost like resting back on a cloud, so tangible and so evident is It. It is much more valuable, much more powerful, much more present, and much more satisfying and reliable than any human relationship has ever been." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Psalms 23:1 (KJV)
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Luke 12:29,30 (to :) (KJV)
29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after:

John 14:17 (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.

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

Scripture assures us over and over again, that God is Ever-present and He will never leave us or forsake us. The time has come in this study, that we need to trust His Love and Feel It, beyond words and thoughts. Hint: God Has put His Spirit within you, your neighbor, brother, sister and Mother - every individual Expression of God's that Dwelleth in the secret place of the most high... They may not Realize this yet, but you do… And they will. Everyone that Listens will be Taught. ~Al Denninger

"On the day when the Christ touches us, that is the day of our mystical experience. We do not become mystics-we may never become mystics on this plane. This experience of the Christ may be only the preparation for the day when we will be mystics, but we will have the mystical experience, and it will be followed by others, as long as we are living in the awareness of the Presence." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 4:12 God dwelleth,13 (KJV)
12 …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.

The Mystical Experience is one of Conscious Dwelling. As long as we Dwell we will be Led, and others will Follow. ~Al Denninger

John 5:36 for (KJV)
36 …for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

The Daily Lesson - September 14, 2020

"Above all things, if we have any desire whatsoever for the spiritual life, we must realize that we cannot at the same time have a desire for some outer activity. Our only desire must be for God Himself: to love Him, to know Him, to commune with Him-and not for any reason. If we have a reason, we will erect a barrier. No one must ever go to God for a reason. To go to God to commune with Him, that is enough. Then, if we are entrusted with spiritual work, that is just one of the added things." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:33,34 (to .) (KJV)
33 But seek ye first [and only] the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you [Righteousness / Realized Omnipresence].
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself [the morrow will also be in The Kingdom].
Matthew 6:5-8 (KJV)
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [thinkers] are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men [with thoughts and beliefs]. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward [human reasons - not God's Purpose].
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door [in Silence], pray to thy Father which is in secret [Soul to Soul]; and thy Father which seeth in secret [Spirit to Spirit] shall reward thee openly [with Awareness / Spiritual Consciousness].
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, [rehearsed thoughts and beliefs given us from this-world] as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him [yes, because God is All-knowing, Omnipresence and does not to be informed by us].

Seek ye The Kingdom with one purpose - to Be at-one and Present - do not take thought for things in the kingdom, or what we think God should do for us.

If so be The Spirit Dwells in us, we are included in His Work. Omnipresence means: God does not Work for us, we are Included in His Work, and so we Work for Him in Loving Oneness. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 13, 2020

"So the questions that must be answered by us in the depth of our consciousness are: Do we love the Lord God with all our heart and with all our Soul, and for no other reason than to want to know God? Do we want to make that dedication and devotion to God our life, and leave the healing and teaching to the Christ within us? This we must answer in our hearts. Only a love of God, a love of being in God's company-away from people, not with people-must remain." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Deuteronomy 6:5,6 (KJV)
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

Psalms 37:5-7 (to :) (KJV)
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him:

Trust the Lord with such completeness that there is nothing else. Commit so deeply that all that is left is the Awareness of His Presence to Direct your life with His Love, Care and Abundance.

I will wait, in silence and stillness, away from the noise and distractions of this-world, for as long as it takes…. Teach me Father of Your Infinite Way of Being…. Speak Lord, thy servant heareth…. ~al.within

The Daily Lesson - September 12, 2020

"Sometimes the price is paid in the coin of loneliness. No matter how many students the teacher of spiritual wisdom may have or how many friends, in his spiritual life he will have to be content to live all alone in the center of his being. He may be physically present with many people, but he is not otherwise present. The price is high! Everyone who has been successful in this work knows how very high it is; and the price one has to pay in loss of family and friends, and in loneliness, does not take into consideration hatred that is brought down upon the person who stands for truth-sometimes the persecution, and always the misunderstanding. Nobody can quite see another's motive because he is not seeing through the same state of illumination, and what someone else is thinking and doing very often looks wrong to a person who is on a different level of consciousness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 6:63-65 (KJV)
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

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.

Luke 23:34 (to .) (KJV)
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

And so we practice, Maintaining the Peace that passeth understanding and stepping over those that are not yet ready to receive the deep things of the Spirit of God, to Be with those that are Ready. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 11, 2020

"If a person is not prepared to leave this world and all his friends, even his family if necessary, he obviously has not been ordained and has no right to embark on this activity, because in spiritual work no one's life is any longer his own. The truly spiritual teacher belongs to his students and patients. If he is unwilling to have a telephone at his bedside and be awakened at any hour of the night, or if he does not go about almost with a walkie-talkie, he does not belong in the work because he must be at the beck and call of telephones, mail, and telegrams or cablegrams seven days a week. There is no time out for weekends or vacations, and it is extremely rare for the person in this work to have even an occasional holiday." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Proverbs 3:6 (KJV)
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

If we Let God Direct our lives, He Will… ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 10, 2020

"Few people realize the price that has to be paid for engaging in spiritual work. Many still have the idea that it is a part-time job, or that a person in this ministry works for an hour or two a week giving lectures and classes, and then hires a big firm of income tax specialists to make out his income tax. That is nonsense. Spiritual work demands a seven day week, and usually a twelve- to eighteen-hour day. As a rule it means the loss of one's family, and it always means the loss of one's friends because in spiritual work no one has the leisure necessary to enjoy friendships or for time-consuming social dilly-dallying." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 1:16-18 (KJV)
16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

When Jesus asked Simon and Andrew to "Come ye after Me", it required them to forsake their nets. He was asking them to not only leave behind all means of making a living, but he was asking them to leave behind the entire this-world scene for an opportunity to Walk with Christ. They Felt the Touch of Christ in their Hearts and immediately Walked Away… This Walk still requires a full commitment. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 9, 2020

"The spiritual teacher must wait until he knows within himself that the Spirit of the Lord God is upon him and that he has been ordained to heal the sick, to lift up, to redeem, to forgive; and he must also be very sure that he is ready to pay the price." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 10:17-22 (KJV)
17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

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

The ego, work, possessions, supply and reasoning of this-world must be completely emptied and surrendered in order to Filled with the High Consciousness and Loving Activity of Christ. We must unconditionally pick up our bed of limited understanding and Walk with Christ for as long as it takes. Everyone's Experience is different, but for me, the Treasure is in the Fruitage. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 8, 2020

"Every person who goes into spiritual work must be certain that he has been called and ordained of the Spirit and that he has not engaged in this activity simply because of a human desire. To desire a spiritual activity is a wrong desire: to want to meet God face to face, to experience Him, to want spiritual light and illumination-this is the only desire that is worthwhile. Human ordination does not make a man spiritual, nor does it make of him a healer or a comforter. Only spiritual ordination from the Father within can do that. What happens to a person after the light comes rests with God, not with man." ~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 [un-ordained] 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.

I John 4:12 God dwelleth,13 (KJV)
12 …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.

The Father's Business is impersonal, unconditional and beyond thought. The Appointment Comes from God and the Work is Performed by Love. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 7, 2020

"If we sincerely love truth, we will give ourselves unstintingly to the search. Whatever is necessary to do, we will do: if it is to buy books or teachings, if it is to give time, if it is effort, if it is devotion, if it is meditation, whatever is necessary to give, we will give. Every part of our life must be dedicated to God; our first fruits must be given to God, for God is not to be attained with a little spare time or a little spare change. It takes the whole heart, the whole Soul, the whole love of one's being, and above all things, it takes secrecy. We let not our right hand know what our left hand is doing. We do not tell our neighbors or our friends and relatives that we are seeking because when we have found Him, they will know it without our telling them." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Chronicles 29:11-14 (KJV)
11 Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.
12 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

Luke 13:18-21 (KJV)
18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?
21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

The leaven of Love and Truth is forever at Work multiplying Itself. It cannot run out, so you will never run out of leaven to use and of leaven to give. All that the Father hath is thine, and all that thou hath is the Father's too. It is all His… There is no reason to withhold Love and every reason to dedicate our Lives to sharing The Word and to Work about the Father's Business, wherever you are Led, without ceasing. The unconditional dedication of a humble Servant Working in secrecy is required to keep it an impersonal, Spiritual activity of Love Loving. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - September 6, 2020

"The Master was wise when he said, 'Go and tell no man.' No person should ever advertise in any way the spiritual light that has come to him, or give testimonies about it, but he does give a cup of cold water in this spiritual Name whenever the opportunity presents itself. An indication of the degree of spiritual light that has come to anyone is his willingness to be anonymous, to stay away from the activities of the world, and to be drawn only where he can be of service." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 10:1-7 (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.

Being focused on God, with our feet solidly rooted in Holy Ground allows us to be silently willing and able to be about The Father's Business the instant we are asked. God's Love will Lead you, without effort, to gather together in Peace and Thanksgiving with others that are also committed to seeking God with all their hearts. Being Led is the opposite of taking thought or effort. ~Al Denninger

"It makes no difference where he lives, whether in a tiny village or a big city as the word spreads, he will be called upon for comfort, healing, and eventually for teaching. His work will grow because the moment anyone has a healing, he is quick to tell his friends and relatives and to write to those in other cities and states. The teacher may never receive honor in his own city; he may remain hidden in his home and not even his next-door neighbor realize the work that he is carrying on, but he will be known far and wide. Nothing spreads quite so rapidly as the news about a healer who can heal." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 4:23,24 (KJV)
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

Mark 10:21 take up (KJV)
21 …take up the cross, and follow me.

I know that in 2005, I was moved from my former busy life and placed here to my present home by God. It is very remote and very quiet. I am surrounded on all sides by National Forest with no neighbors in sight. The closest lights I can see at night from my property is 3 miles away. I am an hour and a half drive from shopping centers, and a 4 1/2 hour drive from a major city to the North, South East or West.

I Know that this was my Mountaintop and God's Purpose was to quiet me into appreciating and loving all things about His Gentle Presence. It seems impossible to believe that I should be busy about The Father's Business teaching and witnessing healings all around the entire globe from here, but I am and do every day! The Spirit Spreads the Word to where it needs to Be. ~Al Denninger

Matthew 10:8 freely ye (KJV)

The Daily Lesson - September 4, 2020

"There is no need to tell this to anyone, to advertise, or to voice it because when the Spirit of the Lord God is upon a person and has received light, there is something within his consciousness that communicates itself silently to others. They feel comfortable presence, and they ask him to pray for them." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 17:1,2 & 9 (KJV)
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.

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.

Here is the lesson I learned from this step in my Experience. Every time I walked away from an exhilarating Experience of the Presence all I wanted to do was to tell anyone and everyone, and even people who didn't want to listen. The fact is, they were never going to Listen. Why, because, they didn't ask. They weren't prepared, they weren't ready, and they hadn't made the effort. Peter, James and John had studied with their Master directly for years before he took them to the High Mountain, and afterwards, Jesus still asked them to not yet tell until the "Son" had Risen in them.

Here's the secret-and it took me a lot longer than the disciples. I was thinking that "I knew" something and was compelled, driven and even possessed with passion to tell the world. It may have been something I learned from my teacher and then I tried to share what he Knew, had Given to me, and now I thought I knew… There were times when it Came directly From God, and I wanted so badly to Give away what I thought "I learned" and personally "knew". I was still thinking it was me that was supposed to do the talking, the writing, emails, texts and phone calls…

This is why we shouldn't be in such a hurry to talk so much until we are Prepared by God. We must learn that it is God who does the actual Knowing, not me. It is God who does the Sharing, not me. It is God who Does the Healing, not me. It is God who does the praying too. And it is God who does the Work - all of it - and I work hitherto. I of mine own self do nothing. I have to be Connected and Let it Flow from God through Me, so it is Him Doing the actual Work not me.

Also, this Truth we want so passionately to Give can only be Given to the "few there be" that want it so badly that they will do whatever it takes to come and ask, listen and learn. I have learned that it is best if I am not that easy to find…

Ha. When I started writing this, "I thought" it was going to be a short page. ~Al Denninger

"When a person comes to that place where a transition has taken place in his consciousness and he no longer looks out on this and sees men and women, good and bad, sick and well, but is able to see through the human picture to the spiritual reality, that one is spiritually ordained." ~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.

Ecclesiastes 8:16,17 (KJV)
16 When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also there is that neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:)
17 Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea further; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.

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 8:2 (KJV)
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

If so be the Spirit of God Dwell in Me, then I Am Conscious of, included in, and move and breath in the His Kingdom. If I am Free of this-world then, I cannot see the picture of this-world in my neighbor either.

Try not to get hung up on the word "transition", if there is a millisecond of a Spark of Realization, there is a Transition from and To, right? It just takes practice to keep It going… ~Al Denninger

"That is the mystical experience. But before that happens, we are human beings, separate and apart from God, mortals who have no God-contact, who are not blessed or reached by God, and not even known to God. When we first feel that divine Presence, however, we are ordained; we are no longer human beings, no longer mortal: we are now the sons of God. We are still the son of man insofar as those who see our body are concerned; we eat and drink, use transportation, and carry on our normal daily activities, but we are the son of God in that those things are the least part of our life. The major part of our life now is the presence and power of God, the same Presence and Power which Jesus said anointed and ordained him to heal the sick." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Rom 8:5, 9 (to .), 14, 16 & 17 (to 2nd ;) (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.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;

There is a shift into Christ Consciousness when a man, whose breath is in his nostrils, lays down the things of the flesh and lets his life be Led unconditionally by The Spirit. ~Al Denninger

"The Transfiguration is not an experience of two thousand years ago. It is a continuing experience that always has been and always will be. It is an experience in which individuals so lift themselves above the physical or mental state that they become less aware of the corporeal form, and more aware of what is shining through that form. Thus we have Transfiguration, and we have it here, and we have it now, available for all who have eyes to see.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. Luke 4:18"

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;

II Corinthians 3:16-18 (to .) (KJV)
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

"So we continue with our spiritual development and unfoldment. We catch a glimpse of spiritual man, sometimes even of spiritual form, and eventually we arrive at the place where it is almost a daily experience to see some person, usually a patient or a student, in his spiritual identity." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 5:20 (KJV)
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Dear friends, Years ago, I thought my first "glimpse" experience was a gift for me… Maybe to lift me up, heal me, provide my supply or Let me See. Now I Know it had nothing to do with me. ~Al Denninger

And, Christ says in
Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Keep walking on your Journey, stay focused, I Am standing at the door, Waiting… ~al.within

"He may not have realized what had happened, but in that blinding flash he lost all sense of corporeality and saw man as he is. He did not see him with his eyes: he perceived him with his inner vision. He saw with inner spiritual discernment, and with that inner spiritual discernment there was that second's glimpse of the real man." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:9-14 (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.
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.
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.

To Know is to Feel the Spirit of God beyond the capabilities of this-world. When the Truth Comes there is nothing else - just one Reality - the one that is Present. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - August 29, 2020

"Every practitioner who has worked spiritually, or even one who has used mental arguments, has been lifted up above mental argument to a place where it stopped, and quietness began. Such a practitioner has witnessed something much like the Transfiguration even though he may not have been aware of it. In response to a call for help from some person, he may have so far forgotten the person and the condition in his knowing the truth about God that all of a sudden he came to the end of the mental argument and for just a flash-one tiny bit of a second-something happened: it was as if he had seen spiritual man, and then he knew that everything was all right." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 14:27 my (KJV)
27 …my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

In the moment the silent, invisible Harmony begins, I Realize, "I Am". ~al.within ~~~~

"Through his meditation and through his going deeper and deeper within himself, he was able to raise his disciples the extra notch that was necessary so that their human sense was 'dead,' and as he became more deeply immersed in the Spirit, the fullness of his spiritual body, his light-body, was made evident to them. They had 'died' to their finite sense and had been lifted to a state of consciousness where they could behold him as he really was." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Acts 2:24 (KJV)
24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

Human sense never was alive in the Spiritual Body. Human sense is a picture imagined in thought. A person that is being hypnotized does not know the real truth, while he is still hypnotized. He cannot be convinced. ~Al Denninger

"During the experience of the Transfiguration, Jesus had with him the most highly developed of his disciples, and inasmuch as by this time they were perhaps too far advanced spiritually to be taught much more of the letter of truth, they were with him on the Mount only for inspiration, meditation, and illumination." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 4:9-11 (KJV)
9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

John 6:44,45 (KJV)
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

And so we dedicate ourselves to practice. We study hard and work gratefully with our teacher and learn of the Father. We dwell and meditate, and meditate and Dwell. When we are ready, we are Taken to the Mountaintop. ~Al Denninger

"At the time of the Transfiguration, Jesus was at the stage of his unfoldment where he was no longer a man: he had become the Way, the Truth, and the Life-incorporeal and wholly spiritual but as far as those in his immediate environment were concerned, he was still walking around in what the universal human mind interprets as human form. His friends, relatives, and followers had not risen in consciousness. They still remained on the human plane, so they, therefore, were able to cognize only materiality." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 14:6,7 (KJV)
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. [Me, Christ Consciousness]
7 If ye had known me, [Me] ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

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

Matthew 17:1-8 (KJV)
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

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.

This-world disciples may be willing but may not spiritually Discern through Christ Consciousness. The reasoning mind is stuck within the bounds of finite material law. Until their Illumination, Peter, James and John only saw Jesus in corporeal form and did not See the Infinite Invisible Christ before them. ~Al Denninger

"Nobody can say, 'I am spiritual, and my body is light,' and then expect that others will be able to see that light. No, even when a person has attained the place where he is a body of light, no one else can see that body as light until he himself has attained the degree of spiritual illumination that makes it possible to witness what is there." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Phillipians 3:14,15 & 17 (KJV)

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

Brothers & Sisters, Follow together with Me unto the High Calling, and Witness what Is There. ~Al Denninger

"Everyone carries his atmosphere with him, and there is no way to hide it or cover it up. For a person of spiritual discernment, it is not too hard to sense whether those with whom he comes in contact are simply good human beings or whether they have developed spiritually to any degree. Something tells us when that spiritual development is present in a person. The person himself cannot tell it because, if he does, that is a denial of it. But we can feel it and are attracted to it. In fact, such a height of spiritual elevation can be reached that a person with a highly enough developed spiritual consciousness can see the entire body of a spiritually illumined person disappear and, in its place, there will be nothing left but light. It may be either a light around the body with the body invisible, or the entire body may be a body of light. This is a momentary thing; does not last for long, but it does happen." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 17:1,2 (KJV)
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

I Thessalonians 5:4-6 (KJV)
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

II Peter 1:19 (KJV)
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

When you Feel the nudge of Christ, and you will, don't hesitate, drop everything, Follow and Watch…. Until then, Practice, Ask, Wait and Listen. ~Al Denninger

"As our state of consciousness evolves to a higher level, we even rise above that and become aware of an aura or an atmosphere, and regardless of what the physical appearance or the speech of a person may be, we are either drawn to the atmosphere flowing out from him, repelled by it, or we are indifferent to it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 8:27-29 (KJV)
27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?
28 And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.

In a high altitude of Consciousness Truth is the fabric of Realty, an appearance of error or lack is ignored as foolish thought or distraction. ~Al Denninger

"The further we go in spiritual development, the less awareness we have of, and the less importance do we impute to, outlined physical form. We begin to perceive other forms of beauty, real beauty, intelligence, even love and life shining out of a person's eyes, or around his lips. We hear something in his voice and catch glimpses of something deep within him." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 4:7-9 (to ,), 10 (to 2nd, & 11 (to.) (KJV)
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us,
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us,
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

God's Love is available every time we Look up! ~Al Denninger

"As we unfold spiritually, we are no longer quite as aware of physical form as we were before. Instead of noticing the physical appearance of a person we meet, we quickly look into his eyes because behind those eyes sits the I. We have learned by now that a person can never be found in any part of his body: in his feet, leg, torso, or even in his brain. It is in meeting the eyes that we meet the person." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:22 (KJV)
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

When we are Illumined and Focused on the Presence of God we not only See into the Soul of others around us, we also Shine God's Love into their Soul as well. ~Al Denninger

"In the mystical realm there is no past, present, or future: there is only now. The form that we think of as our body is not externalized reality, nor is it outside of our being: it is a mental concept or image in thought. The spiritual form as which we exist today is the same form as which we existed yesterday, and it is the form as which we will exist forever. The I of us and of all God-substance am one and the same, and even the body is made of that same pure substance. I is incorporeal and spiritual; I has form, but it is not a dense form: it has no thickness and it has no weight. It is really a 'light' form. To begin to perceive this is to understand that our present existence is of the same spiritual nature as our pre-existence was and as our future existences will be." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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.

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.

Ephesians 4:23,24 (KJV)
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.

John 8:12 (KJV)
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Matthew 6:10 (to .) (KJV)

"CHAPTER XXI

'THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD… HATH ANOINTED ME'

Once the mystical realm has been touched, we live in a world where things happen that never happen in the human realm. It was in this realm that Jesus was living at the time of the Transfiguration, and it was through his conscious oneness with the Father that he was able to show Moses and Elias to the disciples, thereby proving to them that these prophets had never died." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 9:2-7 (KJV)
2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Proverbs 12:28 (KJV)
28 In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

Revelation 22:13,14 (KJV)
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

In the Mystical Realm, the Way of Righteousness is Infinite Consciousness, Infinite Grace, Infinite Harmony and Infinite Presence - it is essentially an Infinite Way of Life. ~Al Denninger
