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 November 14th, 2020, we began Chapter 24
"The Master Alchemist"

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 - November 30, 2020

"There is a constant communion going on with this inner Grace, and before we know it, we are bearing witness to experiences in our life that we did not consciously set in motion and which we recognize to be the result of Grace, an act of God brought into our life without any human volition or human will. When this begins, our faith and confidence deepen; we relax our fears about tomorrow, next month, or next year in the assurance, 'What more can I have than the divine presence of God Himself within me, the Source of all, the Creator of all, the Maintainer and Sustainer of all? And all this is walking around within me!'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 5:1,2 (KJV)
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

John 16:15 (to :) (KJV)
15 All things that the Father hath are mine:

Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

As the Experience Christ Consciousness within develops, Grace begins to Flow out into My Life. Grace goes before me to make the crooked places straight. Grace Flows out to Lift all those who are within reach of my Presence. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 29, 2020

"At this stage of our life we come into what might be called a life of prayer, a praying without ceasing. From early morning to night, and sometimes in the middle of the night, we are living constantly and consciously in the realization:

Thou within me art mighty. Thou within me art the presence and the power in which I rest. Thou art my bread and my meat; Thou art the inspiration of my life, and its fulfillment." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

I Thessalonians 5:16-18 (KJV)
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

John 14:10 the words,11 (to :) (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.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:

Father, I know I can of mine own self do nothing. You have proven it to me over and over again…. Your Spirit within Me doeth the Works… I Know that. I spend my days with You, and my Life with You Guiding me on my way… Your Way… When I Work, it is Your Hands that doeth with Work…. When I rest, it is in Your Arms…. It is in You that I Live and move and have My Life…. Thank you for every opportunity to prove it… Thank You Father. I appreciate You…. I Love You. ~al.within

The Daily Lesson - November 28, 2020

"Until illumination takes place, we do not live a full life or even a God-protected life because we are living separate and apart from God-not that God is absent from us, but if God is not consciously known it is just as if He were not there. It takes the experience of illumination-darshan or satori-to awaken us to the invisible presence and Power that will live our life for us, instruct, teach, guide, direct, support, maintain, and sustain us. This is not accomplished by out directing or ordering the Presence, but rather by relaxing into that Presence and letting It make the decisions as to what direction we are to go, or in what capacity we are to function, and when and where and why. This entire activity remains on the inner plane without taking conscious thought, and yet the fruitage appears in the outer life." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 10:3,4 (KJV)
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

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

Luke 12:22 & 29-31 (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.

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: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:8 for (KJV)
8 …for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Illumination dissolves all this-world ties and establishes our awareness of Omnipresence. We immediately surrender our will to God's and are directed by Him. Harmony prevails. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 27, 2020

"Until such time as that fullness dawns, we have the benefit of teachers and the companionship of one another, and then in the dawning of that fullness a whole new life opens, a life of dedication, filled with new joys and new experiences. Hidden capacities and hidden talents come to light as this realized Presence opens up a new pathway in life and new vistas of experience." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 7:7,8 (KJV)
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

John 6:45,46 (KJV)
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.
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

John 14:25-27 (KJV)
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
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. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Gather together, in His name, as often as possible, with fellow students. Seek practitioners and teachers that have seen the Father and are Directed by Him to point the Way. And then, when we are Ready, we are taught by The Father Himself and Given all that we need to Live His Life, and so in turn, to pass The Word forward. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 26, 2020

"When this moment comes-and I would not give anyone the impression that until that time there are not many periods of doubt, frustration, and sometimes even false hopes-and after it comes, there is another period when there are many joys and many successes, and then occasionally in between there are doubts and frustrations because the fullness of the realization has not yet been experienced. ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 14:29-31 (KJV)
29 And he [Jesus] 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, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

James 1:4-6 (KJV)
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

Be patient, be unwavering, and confident with all your heart and Soul. With even the slightest doubt or sense of separation, we will also slip through the laws of this-world and sink. We are limited by our thought until we surrender ourselves to God's Perfect Work words and thoughts. ~Al Denninger

"I go before you to multiply the loaves and fishes.

I go before you to be the cement of love between you and all whom you meet in your business, professional, and family life.

I am He that is your rest and your abiding place.

Be still and know that I in the midst of you am God, an invisible Presence, to human sense intangible, but tangible in expression and practical in life."
~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 4:16 God is
16 …God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Romans 8:38,39 (to 4th ,) (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,

When we Dwell in the secret place of the most high God's Love is tangible. It shows up as supply, rest, peace and assurance.

I am Grateful for Your Love, Father… And so it is, I am grateful to Love. ~al.within

The Daily Lesson - November 24, 2020

"At some point in the initiate's progress on the Path, he feels this invisible Presence stirring, and It either speaks to him in the still small voice, or in some other way gives him the assurance that It is with him and that It will never leave him: Live and move and have your being in Me; live and move and have your being in the realization that I am here, that I go before you to make straight the way, and to prepare mansions for you." Joel S Goldsmith

Exodus 3:2 (KJV)
2 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

I Kings 19:12 and,13 (KJV)
12 …and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

I Kings 3:5 (to :) (KJV)
5 In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night:

Acts 17:27,28 (to ;) (KJV)
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being;

Hebrews 13:5 for (KJV)
5 …for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Matthew 26:41 (KJV)
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation [distraction]: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

God Comes to us when we are ready in a Way that we can Hear and understand. Each of us will have their own Experience. Each will Hear Exactly what they need in the moment… His Assurance is ever-present. Are you Listening? ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 23, 2020

"So it is that although we never see the Christ of our own being, nor will we with our eyes ever see the Christ of another's being, the Presence is easily and quickly recognizable in those who live in the constant awareness of Withinness: there shines forth an inner peace, integrity, and joy that are at once apparent. More than that, there is the necessary measure of abundance in their life as well as the health, protection, and security." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:9,10 (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.

Don't look at, look within for the Truth of Being. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 22, 2020

"But just as we have no way of proving that an apple tree has life, for we have never seen its life, so we can never see, hear, taste, touch, or smell this invisible Withinness. We will always be able to witness its fruitage, however, just as every spring we see the inner invisible life of the apple tree flowing and manifesting, producing buds, blossoms, leaves, and eventually fruit. Looking at the tree in full bloom, we have little difficulty in believing that that tree has a beautiful and an abundant life, a life that functions even during those seasons when the tree appears to be dead and barren. Life is invisible, and although we never see life, we do see the fruitage of it." Joel S Goldsmith

John 7:24 (KJV)
24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

Having Righteous Judgment is like Seeing as God does - beyond words or thoughts. The Life in that winter tree, and all life, is present whether or not we observe it. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 21, 2020

"What a miracle takes place in our lives when our sight is removed from looking upon a person as a possible source of something and the realization dawns that all that we can ever need of infinite abundance from everlasting to everlasting is within us! What courage and strength are ours! We are no longer living on our intellectual power, our physical power, our inheritance, or by virtue of our business or employment: we now live because we know that there is a mystical Presence called I within us, an I that is our eternal substance and to which we can look to fulfill Itself and to multiply." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Isaiah 2:22 (KJV)
22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

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

John 10:10 I am (KJV)
10 …I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Speak not of yourself, the Presence within, the I that I Am, He doeth the Work. ~Al Denninger

"The key to living a complete and fulfilled life lies in the realization that there is a mystical, transcendental Presence within us that has already provided our infinite supply unto eternity, that contains within Itself our companionship unto eternity, and that has within Itself the power of fulfillment." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ezekiel 36:27-30 (to 2nd,) (KJV)
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field,

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.

Our perfect Harmony is Realized in Knowing the Truth of Infinite Being. We then Watch as God's Life is lived in and through us. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 19, 2020

"Such a relationship with our Source makes our relationship with every person one of love and sharing. It is literally true now that we do not need anything that anyone else has and that no one needs anything that we have because within our own being is established this infinite Storehouse, this infinity of Good, this allness of God. As we continue to look within, It pours Itself forth as we need It, abundantly and with twelve baskets full left over to share with others." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 8:14-21 (KJV)
14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.
17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

When Jesus fed the five thousand did he ask the Father for bread to feed them?
No. He "Looked Up" directly into the endless Storehouse of The Kingdom of God and shared what was Given him. He did not share his personal bread numbering five loaves and two fishes, he shared God's Love and Infinite Supply.
And so it is, I share God's Love with you. ~Al Denninger

"In this moment of quietness I hear God say, 'Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. I have meat the world knows not of. I am the meat, and the wine, and the bread. I am the resurrection. I am life eternal,'

All of this is within me; all of this is embodied in my consciousness. All of this constitutes the Withinness of my own being.

I myself embody the kingdom of God and all that is therein. I do not have to curry the favor of 'princes' because I embody my bread, meat, wine, and water unto eternity.

Within me there is a Presence that says, 'I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. I will be with thee to the end of the world. I am thy bread, and thy meat, and thy water.'

This Kingdom is already established within me, and I need not look outside my own being for anything."
~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 20:21-25 (KJV)
21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:
22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?
23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?
24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.
25 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

Can we look outside of the Omnipresent Kingdom of God for anything? Or, are we already forever Included in It? If we pray for corporeal solutions we pray amiss. Seek ye first The Kingdom, Spirit to Spirit. Give your tribute to God. ~Al Denninger

"When we can rise to the fourth-dimensional state of consciousness, we do not need anything anyone else possesses: we then live not only in freedom from fear, for there is nothing to fear, but in peace, security, and freedom from every discord of human experience. As the Master's consciousness becomes our consciousness, and as we enter that circle of eternity, we too can know:

Within my own being I have the kingdom of God. It is not outside, or in the heavens: the kingdom of God is within me." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 3:17 where (KJV)
17 …where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

John 10:30 (KJV)
30 I and my Father are one.

The Daily Lesson - November 16, 2020

"This is a very difficult idea for the human mind to grasp. What the unillumined mind sees, hears, tastes, touches, and smells seems so real, and the material and mental universe looks so real, that nothing could be considered quite as ridiculous as to stand before the highest temporal authority of the day and calmly state, 'Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above,' or to say, 'Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.' The human mind is simply unable to understand such an attitude. But that is the human mind. The unconditioned mind, the illumined mind, the mind that comprehends the meaning of the word I, that mind is an instrument for the activity of the divine Consciousness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 14:25-31 (KJV)
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
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, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

The human mind conditioned in the physical laws of this-world will never accept anything it can't prove within the bounds of its own thought. Illumined Consciousness is not subject to limitation, reasoning or doubt. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 15, 2020

"The Master Christ Jesus taught his followers to 'resist not evil,' to cease from strife of all kinds whether by the sword or the law, and to give twice as much in return if something were taken from them. Such a teaching sounds very impractical for this day and age, but as a matter of fact, it is far more practical than living a life dependent for its security and safety upon an army, navy, and air force: not only would we be relieved of the staggering expense of maintaining them, but we would also be relieved of any danger from an enemy because in this way of life there are no enemies. It would be as impossible to live with this transcendental Presence and have an enemy as it would be to live with It and then find oneself in danger from snakes, wild animals, starvation, or any other form of physical or mental discord." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 5:39-42 & 48 (KJV)
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

When we plug into a thought that gives credence to a sense of separation from God, we are giving in to the illusion of a presence other than Omnipresence [The-Only-Presence]. Living in, demonstrating and Knowing your inclusion in Omnipresence dissolves the insanity of thought that doubts it. Learn to resist the whole distraction and give it no more thought.

When we Practice the Presence, the Presence is Real. ~Al Denninger

"CHAPTER XXIV
THE MASTER ALCHEMIST

Too many Occidentals believe that the mystical life is not only impractical, but largely a figment of the imagination. In this age, however, the way of mysticism is being shown to be, not something mythical, mysterious, or occult, but spiritual, and a far more practical way of life than any yet devised in the human realm. It changes life from the everyday humdrum human experience with its trials and tribulations and its ups and downs to an entirely different kind of life, one lived from within, and yet not lived by us, but rather lived through us - a life in which we pass from living by taking thought and by our own effort to living by the Spirit." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
14 But the natural man [thinking 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.

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

Be ye transformed from man whose life is in the image of his mind, and efforts are in this-world, to a Child of God, who is Aware that he is Born in God's Image and Likeness. ~Al Denninger
