"The Daily Lesson"

The subject for our current study is the entire book
"A Parenthesis in Eternity
By Joel S Goldsmith

On October 28 2018, we began Chapter 7 "THE SACRED WORD"

"The Daily Lesson" is a progression of excerpts from tapes recorded by Joel, or from his books or writings.
It appears here and in email format each day,
together with the addition of corroborating scripture
and inspired comments by the Practitioner and Teacher ~ Al Denninger,
to take into meditation and live with throughout your day.

Students note: There are words that are capitalized throughout my work.
These words are used as if they are a synonym for, or as an activity of God.
The portions that are italicized are spontaneous meditations.

At the conclusion of each chapter the "Daily's" are compiled and posted to the
IWSO Archives in a printable PDF format for your further review and study.

The Daily Lesson - November 17, 2018

"If we tell a person not developed or trained in spiritual wisdom that God is I, in his unillumined state, he will think that we are deifying a human being. This is not true at all. The human being has to 'die' in order that the I which is his true identity may be revealed in all Its purity, completeness, and fullness. That I which is God is the I of you, but it is also the I of me, for there is only one I, one Ego. There is only one divine Life which I am and which you are." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

John 6:53-65 (KJV)
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
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.

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.

My Life is not of this-world. Yours is not either... ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 16, 2018

"If divine Grace has given us the wisdom to accept this- and nothing can give it to us but divine Grace - let us accept it sacredly and keep it secret, not mouthing it or letting anyone know that we know it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Revelation 2:17 (KJV)
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

We shall all be Taught by God, not by some man, whose breath is in his nostrils.
But a well-taught Sage can surely point the way. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 15, 2018

"In sharing this 'pearl' it may be that a few who learn of it will misuse it and thereby destroy themselves. They will not destroy us; they will not destroy the world: they will destroy themselves. Nevertheless, in spite of such persons, this truth must be revealed in order that those able to accept it can be completely free- spiritually free in the realization of the great wisdom that Moses veiled from his people and that the Master was crucified for revealing: 'I AM THAT I AM . . . . I and my Father are one.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:13,14 (KJV)
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

II Corinthians 3:15-18 (KJV)
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
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.

A tempted ego can rise up in a dream of its own self-importance, with its own sense of wisdom and power. This ego dissolves, into the nothingness it always was, the instant it Sees the Light and Awakens in the Truth of Being or Christ Consciousness. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 14, 2018

"As long as there is an 'I' seeking God, we have not come home. Only when we realize that I is God are we at home in Him, at peace, for when we know that I and the Father are one, we have nothing to be unpeaceful about, nothing to fear and no one to fear, nothing to hate, nothing to resent. Neither life nor death can separate us from the love of God." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Acts 7:33 (KJV)
33 Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.

John 14:27 (KJV)
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.

Anchor yourself in the Truth. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 13, 2018

"This is the 'pearl,' 'the pearl' that must be hidden so that it is not trampled upon, but it is a 'pearl' that must be shared. It can be shared, however, only with those who can receive it sacredly and be trusted with it, because when it is given to the unprepared human mind, that mind wants to use it to conquer the world: 'Oh, I am God, now I want a million. Ah! I want ten million, a hundred million. Why not? I am God!'

But to the Soul that is prepared, It whispers: 'Oh, I am God: I do not need anything, I do not want anything. I have all that I need, I have all that I want, and the world's baubles are of no interest to me.' We cannot be that I that is God and still be interested in name, fame, or fortune. These will come to us, but by that time, we will not value them." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Revelation 21:6 I am,7 (to ;) (KJV)
6 …I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh [overcometh this-world thought] shall inherit all things;

John 4:6-23 (KJV)
6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat. )
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

You see? She was not yet ready to draw in and receive the Spirit of the Living Water… ~Al Denninger

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

Now she is confronting the Christ with reasoning thought. ~Al Denninger

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

OK Great… Now she wants It, but not quite ready… ~Al Denninger

16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
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.

When we are Ready to Listen in Spirit, we are Ready to Hear. ~Al Denninger

I Cor 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.

The Daily Lesson - November 12, 2018

You be still! I am in the midst of you. I am your being, I am your bread, your meat, your wine, your water. Let that mind of yours be still; let those fears be still! There are no powers external to you; there is no God in words or thoughts. I am God! ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ps 46:10 (to :) (KJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God:

Psalm 23:1-6 (KJV)
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Why not just Be still, and Let God be God? The 'little distractions' we think up from time to time, don't change the Truth. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 11, 2018

"I AM - not the bold, brazen 'I'-man that wants to walk up and down the street saying, 'I am God,' but the I-man that sacredly and secretly has received this inner assurance: Be still, be still: I am God. You be still! Do you not know that I in the midst of you am God? I will never leave you. I am come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Cor 6:16 (to 2nd ;) (KJV)
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them;

i by mine own self, am nothing, Father… I am Your individual Expression, Your Life Activity, Your Temple, Your Voice Singing… I am sitting here, Still as can Be, Watching Your Work be done…. Thank you Father … ~al.within

The Daily Lesson - November 10, 2018

"Is there a God up in the sky? Is there a God sitting on a cloud? Is there a God floating in the air? Is there a God walking around on earth? I know not any; I have never seen or heard of any. The only God that has ever revealed Itself is the one that has come through the still small voice which is uttered within me. But there is nothing within me but me; I am the only being that I am, and if I hear a still small voice, it must come from within the depths of my Self. It cannot be what is called a human self; it must come from that Self of me which I recognize to be divine. If 'I and my Father are one,' I must be that one; and therefore, unless I know that I in the midst of me am He, I do not know God. ~Joel S Goldsmith

Isa 44:8 Is (KJV)
8 …Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

Isa 44:6 I am the first (KJV)
6 …I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Luke 17:21 (KJV)
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Looking for a sign in this world is a distraction. Look Within. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 10, 2018

"I is God: there are not two. When this reveals itself to us, something warm, joyous, and sacred has taken place within us. This is the 'pearl of great price.' Would we throw such a treasure out for the lovers of baubles to trample on or to put in a ten-cent mounting and wear? If the I of us is God, what is there external or internal to us that can thwart God's will, destroy God's life, or destroy God's mind or body?" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 13:45-46 (KJV)
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Matthew 7:6 (to 3rd,) (KJV)
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet,

1 John 4:4 (KJV)
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

I Am the Infinite Invisible.
I Am the Omnipresent, All-knowing, All-powerful and indestructible Spirit within You. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 8, 2018

"The ultimate of the correct letter of truth is when we go beyond using a word like God to where we are left with nothing but I, or I AM. And that is enough." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Exodus 3:14 (KJV)
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

I Am beyond words and thoughts, in Spirit and in Truth. ~Al Denninger

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

The Daily Lesson - November 7, 2018

"The I AM known to Moses, Solomon, and Isaiah was the secret teaching of Christ Jesus: "I have meat to eat that ye know not of. . . . I am the bread of life. ... I am the way, the truth, and the life ... I am the resurrection, and the life.... I and my Father are one." Yet the "Father ... is greater than all." In other words, the invisible part of us is greater than the visible, and I is greater than we are because we are fed by the I that we already are. I is not another word invented by the mind of man; It is not another power, presence, or character created in time or space: It is the I that we are that feeds us, whether in the form of material for books, lectures, food on the table, clothing, housing, or transportation. It all comes from the I." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Zephaniah 3:17 (to ;) (KJV)
17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;

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

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

Of mine own self, i can do nothing - the I that I Am within doeth the Work. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 6, 2018

"And what was that password? I AM. Those who know I AM will never have to look to 'man, whose breath is in his nostrils' for anything. Anyone who realizes I AM can travel any place in the world, with or without scrip. Everything needed will be provided for him out of Withinness. He does not have to depend on charity, on the good will of anybody, or on influence. He carries with him everything that he will ever need." ~Joel S Goldmith

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

Psalms 7:1 (to :) (KJV)
1 O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust:

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

I am Included in God's Omnipresence. ~Al Denninger

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

The Daily Lesson - November 5, 2018

"King Solomon, too, had learned this secret and, during the building of his great temple, he promised that when it was finished all those who had worked on the building would be given the password that would enable them to travel in far places and always command a master's wages. No one was permitted to know this password until he had gone through every stage of his craft, from that of the lowest apprentice up to that of a master.

Symbolically, this means that ignorant, illiterate, uncultured, and unspiritual human beings are the apprentices, the lowest grade in spiritual evolution, and in that state they could not be given this password because it would do them no good, but if they worked up through the various stages of humanhood until they arrived at a place of discernment, of masterhood, they would be given the word because they would then be able to understand it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Kings 5:5 (KJV)
5 And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the Lord my God, as the Lord spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name.

The symbolic story Joel is referring to is about the builders of King Solomon's Temple. You can find references to this building in I Kings: chapters 5-7 (KJV). This stonemasons guild of craftsman is honored and its knowledge is passed forward - generation to generation, word for word, mouth to ear - in the inner teachings and degrees of the Freemasons of which Joel belonged. I understand the deep nature of this message as I have been through all of the degrees in Freemasonry as well.

The Name of God has no real meaning to the un-illumined because they have not done their Masters Work and are not yet ready and fully qualified to receive it. ~Al Denninger

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

The Daily Lesson - November 4, 2018

"Moses guarded this word carefully because he knew that human beings tend to use the word I falsely. They use it to identify themselves as Jim, Bill, or Mary. If they were told that I is God, they would translate that to mean that Jim is God, Mary is God, or Bill is God; and we would have human beings going about flapping their wings and sacrilegiously mouthing, 'I am God.'

For that reason the word I was held as a sacred, secret word, the knowledge of which set the priests apart, and it was that knowledge which constituted their priesthood - this understanding of their true identity. With this understanding they could minister to the needs of those who came to them, because anyone who knows the I can immediately give up all concern for his own welfare, can feed the multitudes, supply, support, and heal them. ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ps 46:10 (to :) (KJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God:

Matt 16:24 (KJV)
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. The veil is not lifted through the intellect or by ordination in this-world.

The veil is Lifted by an Activity of Christ Consciousness. You'll know it when you Know it. And in that Illumined Moment you will Know how you are to be God's servant. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - November 3, 2018

"What was it but the understanding of the word I that made Moses the leader and the saviour of the Hebrew people? This word was so sacred that its use was reserved only for the high priests, and they were never allowed to voice it except on one day a year, when they were hidden in the Holy of Holies, in the inner sanctuary of the temple, and nobody was allowed to be there to hear it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Exodus 3:14 (KJV)
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

Exodus 6:3 (KJV)
3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.

Mark 8:27-30 (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.
30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.

Matthew 6:6 (to ;) (KJV)
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;

Ezekiel 36:27 (to ,) (KJV)
27 And I will put my spirit within you,

I Corinthians 3:16 (KJV)
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

The greatest Profits and Teachers, for thousands of years, have instructed us to tell no man, pray in secret and reveal the Nature of God only at low breath to those ready and worthy to receive it. Must be something to this, huh? ~Al Denninger

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

The Daily Lesson - November 2, 2018

"Any word for God, except one word, would still leave an It and a me. The only word that obliterates everything but itself is the word I. I is the ultimate word behind which we cannot go because I is the thinker, the be-er, the doer, the consciousness, the cause. There is no word that really expresses God except the word I. If any other word is used, there is still an I declaring it, and certainly the I that declared it, thought it up, invented, or discovered it would be greater than any of the words." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Isa 42:5-9 (KJV)
5 Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
8 I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

You've heard it said of old:
I am the Bread.
I am the Wine.
I am the Water.
I am the Meat.
I am the Word.

And so it is:
I Am Life, individually Expressed As…

The Daily Lesson - November 1, 2018

"Regardless of what word we utter - even the word God - there is an I that utters it, and an it to be uttered. After all the words have come and gone, and we cannot see or hear them any more, I still remain. I must be greater than any thought I can entertain, or any concept I can hold or form, greater than any belief or theory that I can formulate or accept." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Habakkuk 2:20 (KJV)
20 But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.

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

Luke 12:12 (KJV)
12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Going it alone is like walking around in the dark. Be still, and Let the Father show you the Way. Let Him be a lamp unto thy feet. He will put the Words in your mouth when you are ready to speak... ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 31, 2018

"If all the words that we use as synonyms for God really were God, the room in which we are sitting and repeating those words would be aflame with illumination, and there would be no disease or discord in it. But all we are doing when we repeat these words is declaring or affirming them, and since nothing happens, they therefore cannot be God. There is no word that we can think of that is not the effect of the thinker, and the thinker must be greater than any word he can think, voice, declare, or write." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

Matthew 6:6-8 (KJV)
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, 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.

Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJV)
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

In the beginning was Consciousness, and Consciousness was with God, and Consciousness was God. ~Al Denninger

John 1:2-5 (KJV)
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Thank you Father…and all that's left is a Smile… ~al.within

The Daily Lesson - October 30, 2018

"When we are done with all these words, we are no closer to God than we were before: we have not found God. And so, we go on to another word, and another word, and another word. Finally, we realize that we cannot find God in a word, in any word out here. Ultimately, we come back to the one word which holds the secret of the ages - I. I is neither objective nor subjective, and that I is the I that I am, the Knower. It is the Knower and the known, that which knows and that which is known; and I am both: I am He." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 3:6 (KJV)
6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Isaiah 46:9 (KJV)
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

John 14:20 (KJV)
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Knowing the Word is not about comprehension - it is an Experience. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - October 29, 2018

"There are no synonyms for God in absolute truth. Those that we use are really only attributes descriptive of God. Soul is an attribute of the purity of God; Spirit describes God's incorporeality; love, mind, principle, and law are facets of God-being; but none of these is really God." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Exodus 3:13-14 (KJV)
13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

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.

Dan 2:19,20 (KJV)
19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

And so dear friends, let us not continue to try to describe and identify God in this-world. But Feel and Know Him beyond words and thoughts. ~Al Denninger

"CHAPTER VII

THE SACRED WORD

I AM THAT I AM: Exodus 3:14
I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35
Before Abraham was, I am. John 8:58
I am the light of the world. John 9:5
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. John 11:25
I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5
Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Matthew 28:20

In an attempt to fathom the mystery of God, to explain what can never be explained, and to encompass what can never be encompassed, man has used words. But words can never explain God. There can never be a word that is God. Not even the word God is God, nor the words Mind, Soul, Spirit, or Truth, for all these are effects object to the person voicing them." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

So then, here is our practice: Contemplative meditation is basically a conversation with your self - that Opens into a Conversation With God. ~Al Denninger
