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
"CONSCIOUSNESS UNFOLDING"
By Joel S Goldsmith
On April 15, 2022, we began Chapter 3 "God Revealing The Infinity of Being"

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

The Daily Lesson - May 22, 2022

"You know very well that there is no truth reaching you from me. If there were, I would be left with a little less of truth when I finish this book, and you know that that is not true. I shall not be depleted in any sense. It works the other way. I do not feel that I have any the less of truth for having shared it, for truth is not my personal possession, and I do not have a barrel of it that is trickling out, the flow of which must be carefully guarded that it does not stop. You know, and I know, that Truth is spiritual, incorporeal, and that it is without limit." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Kings 4:1-7 (KJV)
1 Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.
2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.
3 Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.
4 And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.
5 So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.
6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.
7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

What have you in your House? Do you see a limited amount of supply, or do you Know the Infinite, unlimited Activity of the Source of Supply? Our Spiritual Supply is in direct proportion to our Trust in God and how many vessels our faith leads us to borrow from our neighbors. ~Al Denninger

"There is no true sense of spirituality or of generosity except that which knows that whatever is pouring out is being poured out from the infinite storehouse called God. Any other sense of generosity or gratitude believes in a person as the source of it, and this results in that person's being set up as something great and generous. Real generosity, real sharing, and real gratitude come only with the understanding that whatever it is that I am imparting, whatever it is that I am sharing, whatever it is that I am giving, is of God. The only way in which I can accept anything from you, or from those of the world, is when I can realize that it is not coming from you or from them, but only through them. Therefore, when I accept anything from you-whether one dollar or one thousand dollars-and accept it in the sense that I am not taking it from you, and that you are not giving it to me, but that it is God revealing, expressing, and unfolding Itself, then that dollar, or that thousand dollars, will quickly be made up to you. You will find your storehouse quickly replenished." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 12:24 (KJV)
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

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

John 14:8-10 (KJV)
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Any Activity of Love is an Activity of God Unfolding-it is the Father, he doeth the Works. There is only One Source, and therefore One Supply, and He already Knoweth and freely giveth the things you have need of. Look up! ~Al Denninger

The Spiritual Sense of Sharing "The only reason that you or I, individually, and the world, collectively, experience inharmony and discord in the form of sin, disease, and death is the belief that we are something other than God-being. That is the only reason we experience such things. The moment we realize that God is the reality of our being, we no longer need what anyone else has, and this ends all wars, all competition, all trickery, all dishonesty. Think how impossible it would be to realize that God is our mind, Soul, Spirit, supply, and then want anything that anyone has, except in the sense of sharing. And that very moment we come to realize God as the reality of our being, we can be as generous as we choose to be because we can feed the 'five thousand.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Psalms 139:7-10 (KJV)
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Jeremiah 23:24 (KJV)
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.

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.

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Distracted thought can easily turn into a belief that we are somehow separate and apart from the Presence of God. Extended focus or emersion in this false concept, on our own or at the persistence of influencers, we can be persuaded that this belief is the truth. Be still, turn off the influencers and don't turn them back on, refocus and let God Show you the Real Truth of His Omnipresence and Infinite Activity of Being. In Dwelling in the Spirit we begin to Experience the Loving and Abundant nature of God. The more we Experience, the more we Love as God Does. ~Al Denninger

"The Infinite Way does not try to impart a mode or method of getting healthier or wealthier. Through this correct letter of truth, it shows you the truth of your own identity, the truth that God is your own identity. Its whole purpose is to open your consciousness to the conscious awareness of the presence of God in some particular form-as a matter of fact, in infinite form and in infinite variety, but in a form necessary to your development at this particular moment. We have to live so as to be conscious, continuously, of the divine presence of God in individual form, of a divine influence-angels-ever present in human consciousness. And this is God appearing as love, God appearing as life, God appearing as the very truth you seem to need at any given moment, God appearing as substance and supply." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 6:45 (to .) (KJV)
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God.

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.

Psalms 91:1,2 (KJV)
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

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

Be still and Know….Know that your All-knowing Father is always Present. Let your Self be Taught. Let God be God and not your idea of what He should Be… Let Him Show you His Infinite Omnipotence individually Expressed. Let Him Teach You everything You need to Dwell and Live and Love in his Kingdom. All that The Father Hath is Thine. ~Al Denninger

"In knowing that truth, please be sure that you know this, too: You are not alone in this work. You are not alone on the street, or in your home, or in the airplane in the sky. You are not alone in peace, or in war. The symbols of God are all about you. God is always appearing in some kind of protective form, because God is not formless. God is always in the form of some divine idea. The divine Presence, the divine Being is sitting right on your shoulder. It is even closer; It is within your own consciousness, within the very being of you. If you will live in this spiritual life or in this light of Truth, you will always be consciously aware of God, if not of Him in the absolute sense, then in the form of a gentle thought, or a state of peace. There is always a peace surrounding us, if we open our consciousness to it; but we must learn to keep consciousness open to it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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?

Colossians 2:6-7 (KJV)
6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

John 14:17 (but) -21 (KJV)
17 …but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

God has not left us comfortless - Being in Oneness is not about being alone, it is about recognizing the At-One Nature of God. You can't leave Omnipresence, but you can be tempted by the lie of thinking you are…. Rest in My Peace that passeth understanding. ~Al Denninger

"Realize and feel within your being all that God is, but do not do it with words. You will only get tangled up. But this is the truth of being; this is the truth you must know, not only in order that you may be free, but that all who come to you may be free. Truth, itself, will not free the world. It is your knowing the truth that will do that, and the truth that you must know is not some truth about a human being, about a photograph, but the truth about God and you, the truth about God appearing as Its infinite, individual manifestation." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:9,10 & 12,13 (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.
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.

John 8:32 (KJV)
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

"Our patient is healed long before we get all these words out of our mouths. It is not meant that we should learn words, and then use them in treatment. It is meant only that we should catch the significance of this idea that we, individually, are really divine Consciousness, disclosing, unfolding, revealing, manifesting, and expressing Itself as individual you and individual me, regardless of any appearance. All there is, is God being me and God being you, but always God being: God, infinite; God, eternal, immortal Life; God, incorporeal Spirit, Soul, divine Substance, infinite Intelligence. We go right to God and stay there." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:11 & 14-17 (to 2nd ;) & 38-39 (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.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
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;
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, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

As Consciousness is Lifted into Awareness, there is nothing but Harmony. All Life is of God, Infinite Love. Go right to God and stay there. ~Al Denninger

"When you see a person manifesting illness, poverty, sin, disease, or deformity, do not give that person a treatment. If you want to know the reality, close your outer eyes, and open your inner vision so that you can see that right where the false appearance seems to be, there is the Son of God, the manifestation of God, God consciousness individually unfolding, expressing, and revealing Its own infinite being. No matter of whom I am thinking, I have to think of God as the individual person-God, infinite, divine Consciousness, manifesting the infinity of Its own being as that individual person." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 16:24,25 (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.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

"The minute we think in terms of the external appearance, we may have friends today, but those same friends may be our enemies tomorrow. It works out like that because in looking at people as they appear to be, we are dealing with a selfish sense of self, an egotistic sense of self, which is always saying, 'I need this, and you have that.' When we are on that level of life, we cannot behold each other as God made manifest. We cannot behold the Son of God with the outer senses. We cannot, in the outer world, behold the Son of God individually appearing." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Luke 24:13-19 (to ?) (KJV)
13 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
19 And he said unto them, What things?

While we are preoccupied in the reasoning mindset of the outer senses, our eyes will be holden in this-world, and we will not behold the Christ's Presence, even if He is walking right along with us on our journey. And, of course, He Is-He said He would never leave us or forsake us.

Ha, I just noticed: in the story of the two disciples On the Road to Emmaus the Son said, "What things?" And in the Garden of Eden the Father said, "Who told you, you were naked?" Christ is Always Loving us. ~Al Denninger

"If I want to know the truth about you, there is no use looking at your form and trying to find it there, for that form cannot testify to truth. Only with my inner vision can I do this, that means with the inner spiritual light of the world which I am, and which you are. In that manner I can tabernacle with you; I can commune with you; I can be with you; and we can be friends unto eternity." ~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.

Ezekiel 36:27 (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.

Ezekiel 37:26,27 (to :) (KJV)
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them:

Revelation 21:3 (KJV)
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

II Corinthians 5:1 (KJV)
1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

The Truth is that God is Omnipresent, and while He may not be able to be seen with this-world vision, He can Surely be Felt Within. Spirit to Spirit is not two communing It is discerned as Be-ing One. Thy Kingdom is Come. ~Al Denninger

"Jesus recognized that there is the Christ, the Son of God, and this body and form that the world was seeing and calling 'Jesus.'

"If you do not believe this, go back to the New Testament and find what Jesus said about you and about me: 'I am the way, the truth, and the life . . . he that hath seen me hath seen the Father.' He was talking about himself, but he was also talking about you and about me. Of the 'illusory' human self of him, he said: 'I can of mine own self do nothing. . . . My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me . . If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

"When I look at you, all I see is God. But I cannot see that with my physical eyes. All that I can see with those eyes is a very finite, mortal, material concept of God, appearing individually. Therefore, no matter what my eyes tell me about you, they do not testify truly. If they testify that you are sinning, sick, or dying, it is a lie. But if my eyes testify that you are beautiful, well, healthy, happy, and prosperous, that also is a lie. Those two opposites are but phases of the same belief-healthy or unhealthy, wealthy or not wealthy. If I want to know the truth about you, I must discern that through spiritual consciousness. Only spiritually, can I discern the reality of your being. But when I do discern that, I find God because God is the reality of your being. God is the eternal you." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"Suppose I were to put your photograph in front of me, and having looked at it, decided that I did not like it; so I try to improve it by giving it a treatment. I could do that by touching it up with a little paint here, and a little more there. But after I have finished doing that, I would have only an improved photograph. It would not change you in the slightest degree. In the same way, if I gave you or your body a treatment, even if we patched it up and did something to it that would make you say, 'It feels better,' we still would have only an improved 'illusion,' an improved concept." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"I do not, I cannot, give a treatment until the person asking for help is completely out of my thoughts. My treatment is based on lifting thought up to God and on eliminating any sense of person. I jump, as fast as I know how, up to the word God: I lift my thought over the person's head, not because God is up there, but because for me it eliminates personality and person, and then I am in God. Then I come out from God, and let flow out whatever truth I know about God-all the truth I know about God. I never connect it with any individual. And the reason is this: God is the only individual in the world. God is infinite individuality; God is the only place, the only person, the only power. God is the only reality. If I turned away from God, I would be treating an illusion." ~Joel S Goldsmith

"Never 'Treat' a Person

I do not want to dwell too much on modes and methods of treatment, because I do not believe them to be too necessary at our stage of development. Yet I do recognize that in some small degree, treatment always will be necessary. We cannot completely overlook it. Therefore, in all my writings you will find some reference to treatment. These are enough to keep you on the path, and yet not allow you to sit upon a cloud and remain there without some resting place for your feet.

Now I want to explain one reason why we never treat a person, why we never give a treatment to any person. If anything in my writings has led to the belief that I would ever give a treatment to any person, let me correct that concept now. I have been in this work for twenty-eight years, and never have I given a treatment to anyone. Sometimes people say, 'I got your treatment, and it was beautiful.' That is impossible. I have never given a treatment to anyone, and I have never directed my thought to a person. I have never addressed the individual consciousness of any person. Never have I said, 'You are spiritual; you are perfect; you are God's child.' Never have I allowed the name of a patient to come into my thought while I was 'treating.' Never have I allowed the face, or thought, or outline of any face or body, to come into my treatment." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 14:15-21 (KJV)
15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

Matthew 6:5-8 (KJV)
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
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.

In this perfect example From Jesus' Experience: Did Jesus acknowledge to his disciples or the multitude that there was a problem with not enough food? Did he ask God to multiply the loaves and fishes so there would be enough? Did he ask for food for the people by name so God would Know where to deliver it? Did he say anything about food other than to bless it? Was there any kind of "treatment"? The answer to all of these is no.

Did he follow his own instructions for prayer that he gave earlier on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:5-8)? Yes. Jesus Knew God is Omniscient and already Knows the things needed. He didn't need to give a sermon to show His personal importance or speak about the peoples' personal need or even to teach a lesson about God's Infinite Abundance. He didn't take up a collection to buy food. The Christ Looked Up, and in His Secret Place of the Most High, He Acknowledged God, blessed the Loaves and Fishes and passed out Spiritual Supply manifest as all the Loaves and Fishes that were needed. All did eat and were filled, with an abundance left over and everyone witnessed God's Supply in a Spiritual and in a tangible way. I am sure that if there would have been ten thousand mouths to feed the result would have been the same. Jesus did not treat a lack - He Knew the Truth and Acted in the Truth. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - May 6, 2022

"Please remember this: You will never get anything from this world, except the quality of your own being. Therefore, anything which comes to you will come only by reflection. It is as if you stood in front of a mirror and saw whatever stands before the mirror. There is nothing in the mirror to be seen: What you see is your own selfhood reflected back to you. This is a law and a principle. The quality, whatever its name or nature, is in our own being. When someone expresses it to us, he merely reflects our own being back to us. It is our own quality which has been reflected." ~Joel S Goldsmith

James 1:22-25 (KJV)
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

I Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

The only Face that is Real is the Spiritual Face. The natural face or image in the glass is an illusion and is only a mirror image of the Real Face. The false image or reflection misses the mark of Truth. Our integrity of active truth is a requirement for Spiritual Vision. When we See Face to Face we are Seeing Spirit to Spirit, Reality to Reality, Loving unconditionally without even a trace of a false image. With you Now, Seeing You. ~Al Denninger

"All these are qualities of your own being. If you do not find them within you, and if you do not find them very much in expression, do not look for them outside. But if once you do find that justice, mercy, kindness, benevolence, and gratitude are qualities of your own being, and that you are allowing them to come into full expression, then you will not look for them in anyone else, ever again. You will not have to, because they will be reflected back to you from the rest of the world, but always what is being reflected back to you will be the qualities of your own being." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

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

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 25:40 (KJV)
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

It is the Father within that doeth the Works, not the self without. We must first See this as Our Truth - then we can See It as the Truth of our Neighbors. Knowing the Truth is Experiencing Love and Freedom. ~Al Denninger

"Have you ever thought how much time you spend seeking love? It is time wasted because it is always to be found where you never think to look for it. It is within your own being: / am life, truth, and love. / am love. / am the only love there is in the world. I am all that God is; all that the Father hath is mine. Our mistake is that we look for love in or from some person. There we shall never find it-never. The love we find in a person is a counterfeit of love. We shall find love only when we discover it as the reality of our being. In the same way, how often do we look to somebody for justice, for mercy, or gratitude. We cannot find these qualities in any person because they are not there to be found." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:5-8 (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.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

I John 4:8 (KJV)
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Psalms 145:18 (KJV)
18 The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

Jude 1:21 (KJV)
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Love, Justice, Mercy and Gratitude-every Activity of God comes from Its One Divine Source, Expressed through and As Christ Consciousness. There is no sense in looking "somewhere out there" for it, that search is futile. The poet Tennyson said, "Closer is He than breathing, nearer than hands and feet". Love is Expressed not as the carnal man, but in and As Spiritual Be-ing. Keep yourselves in the Love of God. ~Al Denninger

"Have you ever stopped to think how much time you spend trying to find some truth, or wishing that you might know some particular truth? You do not have to do that at all. If you can realize the Master's saying: 'I am . . . the truth,' then, you will have it all. 'I am the truth!' And when you have that, you do not have to look for some truth which I already am." ~Joel S Goldsmith

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

Yes, the Truth is the Truth - but we have it All when we Spiritually Discern It and Live It with no thought about why it is True. It Just Is - like I Am, I Was and Ever will Be… Intellectual understanding is a trap into accepting a temporary life. We will all be Taught of God, Let Him. ~Al Denninger

"When we think of love, we cannot help going back to the ministry of the Master: 'My peace I give unto you . . . Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.' You will never stray far from the Christ while you are dealing with love, and you will never stray far from 'Peace be still,' while you are living with that word 'love.' In the same way, you will never get very far into sin, disease, or death, while your thought is being permeated with the consciousness of life eternal. Just go back to the Master, to /, to / am. Become so familiar with the teaching of the Master that no matter what situation arises, some of his very gentle, persistent statements immediately come to life: 'I am the way, the truth and the life . . . I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:33 (to ;) (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;

II Timothy 3:16,17 (KJV)
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

We must stay focused on the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth, and try not to get caught up in any Illusion of inharmony that shows up to distract us. Also, keep a copy of scripture handy and close by, and Keep the Spirit of Scripture even closer… All that the Father Hath is thine - own It. ~Al Denninger

Psalms 91:1 (KJV)
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

"These examples show us the reason for using synonyms for God. We are seeking merely to find the word that most closely fits the situation as it is presented to us in the human picture. Yet, all the time we are talking about Love, let us remember that Love is also divine intelligence, Love is also substance." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 2:12-14 (KJV)
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
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.

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.

Mankind speaks and thinks in the letter of the word. Synonyms are thoughts and concepts that we use to reason and learn in this-world as a process to begin to develop Trust so we may move upward into Spiritual Discernment or Inspiration. The substance of Love is Love Be-ing. I Am Love, the activity of Love Loving. ~Al Denninger

"Do you see that in thinking along these lines we have never thought about the persons involved, about the human beings in the picture and their worried or disturbed relationships? All we have thought about is Love and Its properties, Love and Its qualities, Love and Its influence, Love and Its omnipresence. By the time we have finished thinking about Love, the telephone should be ringing with someone at the other end telling us that there has been a reuniting." ~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.

Psalms 138:8 (to :) (KJV)
8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me:

John 12:32 (KJV)
32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

The unconditional and Gracious Love of God transcends personal sense and passeth all understanding. Love Lifteth Me. ~Al Denninger

"Therefore, if the claim is that of a discordant relationship between people, let us turn immediately to the word God, and then quickly go from there to divine Love, emanating as an aura. Love is a permeating substance, a penetrating substance. Love is a cement, a uniting influence. Then come words like 'unity,' 'oneness,' 'at-one-ment'-all properties of this divine Love." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 1:9,10 (KJV)
9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

John 15:8-12 (KJV)
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

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

A house divided cannot stand, a house united cannot fall. The fruit we bear has many forms and for many purposes, but the source of it all is Love. Love one another as Christ Loves You always. Let His Love Flow through you as though it were a natural exhale, available without ceasing to all, received by those Abiding. Freely ye have received His Love, freely give It. ~Al Denninger
