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 Novenber, 7 2021, we began Chapter 33
"The Inner Universe"

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

"The monastic life is a life of Self-completeness. You can lead the monastic life while living in the midst of a busy city or alone on a desert because you have found your Self-completeness within, and yet that Self-completeness you have discovered within, you share with others. That is the true monastic life." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

I John 2:5,6 (KJV)
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Colossians 3:4 (KJV)
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

In the monastic Life we Realize that we don't belong to a dream, we Belong to the House of the Lord. This is not an intellectual thought or a cliché of metaphysics - it is Transition into the Activity of Life. ~Al Denninger

"You are living the monastic life when you are in the business world, even if you are surrounded by a thousand people, because within, you are living as one with the Father. You are living the monastic life when you are married if you have found your Self-completeness within, and then share it with your companion without. You are not living the monastic life if you are dependent on parents, wife, husband, or children, and cannot find your peace without them. You have not found the monastic life if, out in the business world, you are placing your dependence on person, influence, power, or money." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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.

Romans 8:6 (KJV)
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Ephesians 4:4-7 (KJV)
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

John 15:4 (KJV)
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

The monastic Life is not a place, it is a state of Consciousness. It does not matter what the contents of the dream you are currently entertained by, the Truth is always the same when you wake up. If you not Dwelling in the Peace that passeth understanding you are back believing in the dream. You are in the monastic Life, if so be you are Dwelling in the Secret Place of the most High within You, regardless of what appearance is presenting itself. ~Al Denninger

"In the monastic life, you live within, where you find your completeness in God, and where you discover that you do not need anyone or anything because you have found Self-completeness in God. You draw to yourself worthwhile companions, understanding and loving relatives, capable and honest business associates, because the monastic life bears fruitage on the outer plane in harmony and all forms of good." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Psalms 1:1,2 (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

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

Matthew 18:20 (KJV)
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Proverbs 3:5,6 (KJV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Philippians 4:7 (KJV)
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Father, I can of mine own self do nothing…. The Spirit within doeth the works… So I rest, and contemplate, meditate, and Abide in You as much as possible… When I Lean on You, The Way is opened up…. Your Light Shines in the darkness and is a lamp unto my feet…. The Work that Flows out from me brings Brothers and Sisters in Christ to Gather in Your Name…. In Your Presence to Rest a while and Know, and Feel, and Demonstrate Your Will, Love and Understanding… Thank you Father. ~al.within

"This world within has been called a mystical world, and the life that flows from it, a monastic life. Many persons have misunderstood these terms, and they think of the mystic and the mystical as something mysterious, or of the monastic life as entering a monastery or a convent, bottling oneself up away from society, thereby avoiding labor and removing all temptation to sin. Is it not foolish? Some of the hardest workers in the world are in monasteries and convents, and if they did not lose their sense of sin before entering upon this life, they carried their sin with them right into the monastery and convent. You cannot bottle yourself up in any place where you will not find some measure of loneliness, sinfulness, lack and limitation-if these are in you.

The mystical life is the life you live when you recognize that the invisible Presence within you is the reality, and that It forms the joys of your outer experience. When you find the source and substance of your joy, prosperity, happiness, wisdom, and love within you, and then automatically find it developing into fruitage in the without, you are living the mystical life which often results in living the monastic life." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 10:24-27 (KJV)
24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Matthew 6:31-33 (to ;) (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;

John 8:31,32 (KJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

If we live this-world provides for our lives, then we will probably react to every one of its claims. Our True Home and Life is in The Kingdom of Heaven. ~Al Denninger

Isaiah 2:22 (KJV)

"The kingdom of God, the whole Source and Fount of this world, is within you, and it is this invisible world, so beautiful, so satisfying, and so complete, that appears as outer fruitage, as food, clothing, home, human relationships, marriage, or whatever it is that is needed. Then you never weary of it; you never tire of it: it is always joyous. You pass from glory to glory because, in this mystical life, you no longer hold on to form. You find joy in this city or that; you find companionship in this person or that; you find truth in this religion or that; you find peace in this church or that. You find them because you did not seek them in external forms, but released them from within your own being, and then they appeared outwardly as infinite, eternal, joyous, and satisfying forms." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthian 6:19 (KJV)
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Proverbs 11:30 (to ;) (KJV)
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;

II Corinthians 3:18 (to .) (KJV)
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.

All that the Father hath is thine. His Omnipresence has no limit, no judgment and no end. ~Al Denninger

"This is an invisible world. Human beings live only on the exterior fringe of life, and that is why they find little or no satisfaction. In childhood they gain a momentary pleasure from their toys, and then they smash them: they are no longer useful, no longer satisfying, so they are broken, and another toy has to be found, and another and another. Then man finds a game, and then a business, and sometimes he finds a church, but nearly everything he finds is in the exterior world. He lives on the surface of it, and he gets a little pleasure out of it, a little joy, and perhaps a little profit, and then because it does not bring lasting satisfaction, he wants to break it up. Nothing in the exterior will ever satisfy, but when we learn to let the Invisible flow out and release Itself through us, It appears as fruitage of which we never tire." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 2:15-17 (KJV)
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

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.

Recognize the temporary baubles of this-world for what they really are… Let the Truth of Infinite Being Flow in and through you… And be satisfied in It. ~Al Denninger

"This world is invisible. The effects of it become visible-the fruitage and the harmonies-but the Cause, the Law, the Creator, the Activity, and the Substance are invisible. They are part of an invisible universe, and thanks be to God, that invisible universe is locked up within you. The Kingdom, the invisible Kingdom which is the source of the visible universe, is within you. You release the forces that bless you, and in your ignorance you release the forces that curse you. But the kingdom of God, the whole of God's creation, is within you." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

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

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

The Kingdom of God is Within you. The nature of God is Omnipresence. The Kingdom is permanently placed within you and cannot be removed-but your thought can be tempted into thinking that you are somehow separate and apart from God. Nothing is ever lacking in God's Creation because every Activity is His. The Father Within doeth the Work. ~Al Denninger

"What you behold in this world consists of effects, but there is not anything that you can behold that is not the result of an inner activity. You release this inner activity which goes out into the world invisibly and then produces visible fruitage. To abide in the Word is an invisible procedure. You cannot live in God externally; you cannot live in the Word externally: you must live in the Christ internally; you must let the Christ-word abide in you internally; and then you will bear fruit richly externally." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Colossians 3:2 (KJV)
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Matthew 4:4 (KJV)
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

John 15:7,8 (to;) (KJV)
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;

Father, I am setting my affections on You, and so I am Dwelling within in the secret place of the Most High… My trust is in You… You are my refuge, my fortress and my Rock. I wait upon Thy Voice…. Speak Lord, thy servant heareth…. ~al.within

"This world is governed from within. This world, this outer world, is governed from within. No flower blooms except by virtue of an invisible activity. An invisible activity draws from the earth into the roots, and sends that which is drawn in up into the branches and out into the shoots that finally become the blossoms and the fruit. There is an interior bond between you and God that makes it possible for God to send you where you will find whatever you need: the truth, the employment, the human relationships. The power is within you, and it is invisible." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 5:30 (to :) (KJV)
30 I can of mine own self do nothing:

John 14:10 but (KJV)
10 …but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

John 15:4 As,5 (KJV)
4 …As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

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.

Romans 13:1 (KJV)
1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

And so, take no thought for what you can do, or what you think you can do. Your Father already knoweth what you have need of before you ask. Stop. Stop… Be still and Let Him show you. ~Al Denninger

"There is a Presence within you that goes before you to "make the crooked places straight," Your realization of It releases It. There is a cement within you that cements your relationships with everybody in the whole world: your realization of that releases it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Isaiah 45:2 (to :) (KJV)
2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight:

Psalms 16:11 (KJV)
11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

John 13:34,35 (KJV)
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Colossians 2:2-6 (KJV)
2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

II Corinthians 3:16,17 (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.

The I that I Am is that Presence within, a still small Voice that is My Shepherd, which leadeth me in the paths of Righteousness. Carry this Loving Impulse to all those that will Open their Heart, be joined together in Oneness and be Led. Where the Spirit is Realized, Practiced, Demonstrated and shared, there is Love Is.

"God is infinite being, and God is the infinity of your individual being. Demonstrate this, prove it. Begin, in whatever way is open to you at this second, to let God's grace flow out from you. Do not pray that God's grace come to you: open out a way to let God's grace flow from you." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 9:8-11 (KJV)
8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

Ephesians 2:8-10 (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.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

"If necessary, you have to give forgiveness: you have to sit down and search your thought and see what or whom there is on the face of the globe that you are holding in condemnation, criticism, or judgment, and forgive it or them. Forgive, forgive." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 6:37 (KJV)
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Mark 11:25,26 (KJV)
25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Ephesians 4:31,32
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

If we look at our neighbor and judge, criticize or condemn them, we are actually breaking the 9th Commandment by bearing false witness against them. We are not seeing them as they Truly are in God's eyes. We must first forgive ourselves for Seeing them as separate and apart from God and then move forward in forgiving them.

"Whether you think of supply in terms of a supply of love, of home and companionship, a supply of opportunity and recognition, a supply of money, compensation, or reward, the supply is within you and must flow out from you, and you must live your realization of its omnipresence by beginning with a penny, if necessary, and giving it to some impersonal purpose. Supply is omnipresent within you; supply will never leave you, nor forsake you. You can never go any place where supply is not. You carry it with you just as you carry your integrity, your loyalty, and your fidelity. You cannot leave it behind because supply is spiritual: it is your awareness of God in the midst of you to be proved by beginning at once to give, share, and express it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Galations 6:8 (KJV)
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Therefore, an infinity of supply lies within you, but if you let your vision stray outside to the husband or wife who may seem to be the channel, to the position, the business, or the securities that may seem to be the avenue, you may be lost, for everyone on earth has found sometime or other that all outside reliances collapse." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"When you achieve the demonstration of freedom from within you will experience it in the without; but be sure that when you invite freedom to come forth, you are also willing to give freedom to those you are holding in bondage. Even if you are holding them in bondage to the belief that they are human beings, give them their freedom. Recognize that nobody is a human being, but that God sits in the midst of every individual, past, present, and future, so-called living, so-called dead, and so-called unborn. You cannot have freedom unless you first give freedom. You cannot have love unless you first give love. You can have only what you are willing to give: what you hold on to you lose-that is a spiritual law." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Galations 5:1 (KJV)
1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Matthew 22:37-39 (KJV)
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 10:8 freely (KJV)
8 …freely ye have received, freely give.

When the Spirit of the Lord is Realized, there is Freedom. The Freedom is from the universal hypnotism presented in the human scene. We no longer dwell in the thought that we of our own selves are in control. We begin to See what God Sees. As we are Loved - so do we become Loves Activity. As we begin to See Our True Identity - so do we begin to See our Neighbor as such.

7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

I Corinthians 2:11-16 (KJV)
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.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Open your heart, embracing the whole world, and say to yourself, 'Love, flow out: flow out to the saints to support them in their activity; flow out to the sinners to cleanse and purify them; flow out to the tyrants to soften and give them mercy and justice.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

I John 4:7-13 (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, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, 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.

Luke 6:27,28 & 31 (KJV)
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

We become the Love of God, when we acknowledge God as the One and Only Life. All of God's Expressions have the Nature of God in them, even if they don't embrace it for themselves at the moment. Be the Activity and Example to lift them out of their denial of their True and Perfected Birthright. Give the greatest gift - Gift of Life. ~Al Denninger

"The kingdom of God is within us. Within our very own being is the kingdom of Love. If it is love that seems to be lacking in our experience, we do not look outside our own being for it, for even if we seem to find it, we will be disappointed. All we have to do to find love is to turn to this great spiritual realm that is within us, and there divine Love has Its abode." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Ephesians 4:4-6 (KJV)
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

John 14:22,23 (KJV)
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

There is One Love infinitely Expressed and Omnipresent, so we can never be beyond Love's touch. Love is closer than breathing, nearer than hands and feet. Rest in It and let Love Flow out from You as God Loves You. ~Al Denninger

"The Christ-Spirit is right here where you are and where I am. This presence of the Christ is in the midst of our own being. It is filling our consciousness. We do not have to reach out for It; we do not have to think: all we have to do is to be still, and let It talk to us from within our own being." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Jeremiah 23:23,24 (KJV)
23 Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?
24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.

Psalms 139:7 (KJV)
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

I Corinthians 6:19 (KJV)

Psalms 46:10,11 (to ;) (KJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;

In God we Live and move and have our Being. I am Included in the Kingdom of God. Where I Am, Thou Art. Rejoice, for I Am. ~Al Denninger

"In this moment we can leave our family outside-father, mother, sister, brother, husband, wife-leave all to enter the Christ-Spirit. Life is so completely individual that, for the time being, we can forget that there is anybody else in the world but ourselves. We can forget any obligation or duty we may have to others; we can forget our past, whether it is good, bad, or indifferent, and even if we are not fully able to do so, we can try to forget the future in the realization that we are creating our future: our tomorrows are determined by what we do today." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Mark 3:31-35 (KJV)
31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

Matthew 6:33,34 (to .) (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Here's what you can do today: embrace the Christ and surround yourself with those of Christ Consciousness. Take no other thought… ~Al Denninger

"This is a secret life that we are living, this mystical life, and it does not serve any purpose to violate that secrecy by telling others about it, more especially those who have no interest in it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:6 (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.
Ephesians 5:11 (KJV)
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Luke 19:47,48 (KJV)
47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

Matthew 5:6 (KJV)
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

The Spirit of the Lord is within - so that is where we pray, teach, Work and Live. Those seeking the Truth shall be taught in this Way. Gather, fellowship and associate with those of like mind. ~Al Denninger

"It makes no difference what violent objections to this way of life we may encounter in our home, in our business, school, or social life. Nobody knows what is going on in our mind because we are praying in secret; we are living in an interior world, an interior universe." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Corinthians 4:3-7 (KJV)
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

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

The dogs bark, but the caravan moves on….. Keep on Seeking the Kingdom of God with all your Heart, no matter what appears to tempt you to react to it. Just stay the course and Love God. ~Al Denninger

"Our primary concern, therefore, is with the sowing of this present moment, and that has nothing to do with anyone else. There is no one who can help and no one who can impede our spiritual progress. We determine to what extent we will dedicate ourselves to the spiritual path; we determine how seriously we will devote ourselves to this Way. If we are devoting ourselves to an inner spiritual practice, no one can interfere with it because no one knows that it is going on." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 4:23 (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.

Proverbs 16:1-3,9 (KJV)
1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.
2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits.
3 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.

Colossians 3:15-17 (KJV)
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

John 17:7 (KJV)
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

And so, here is our practice: we enter into silent meditation where only we and the Father are present, and we Dwell in the Spirit, and the Spirit of the Lord will Direct our Heart, and so our Work. The amount of Grace we are Aware of is in direct proportion to the amount of dedication we put in… ~Al Denninger

"CHAPTER XXXIII
THE INNER UNIVERSE

Every spiritual aspiration, every effort in the direction of God-realization, is a step forward out of the parenthesis into the full and complete circle of eternity. As we sow, so shall we reap, and if today we are sowing to the spiritual awareness of life, the parenthesis is becoming fainter and fainter. But if we are sowing only to physical comfort-health, wealth, and position-is it not inevitable that we will remain imprisoned in the parenthesis, reaping both material good and material evil?" ~Joel S Goldsmith

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.

The "things" that are added are of Spiritual Awareness. It Feels to me, more like being Included in The Kingdom than something being added though… ~Al Denninger

Matthew 7:14 (KJV)
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Stay the course, remain focused, sow to the Spirit and the Spirit will be as a Lamp unto thy feet and Guide for your Heart. ~Al Denninger
