Posted now are Christmas Monthly letters from several years. I will add more as I find them and plan to post for the holidays of the coming year.
For those of you able, please continue your World Work for America.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. May the materials Joel created for us illumine your holiday and bring blessings in the New Year.
Christmas Message December 1961
I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. May you be inspired by this letter and continue your prayers for America and her friends (and enemies) around the world.
Here is Joel’s message to you from 1961.
“Many, many times the Christ has appeared on earth as individuals – Lao-The, Buddha, Shankara, Jesus, John, Paul, Nanak, and many others. Now the time has come when the Christ must appear as every individual. That is the activity, the function, the purpose, and the reason for the message of The Infinite Way.
“The Infinite Way has been sent to prepare the consciousness of the world, not for the second coming of the Christ, but for the first coming, since the Christ has never been on earth as universal consciousness, and The Infinite Way is preparing the world for the first experience of the Christ as the consciousness of mankind.
“The message that has been given to me is that “the natural man,” the man of earth, that man who receiveth not the things of God is to be replaced by the man who has his being in Christ, the son of God.” Throughout the 1961 and 1962 classes, the subject was “Raising up the Son of God in You,” lifting up the son of God in you. This does not mean a personal “you”, but you, the consciousness of mankind.
“Whatever The Infinite Way accomplishes with you as a person or with any of our teachers or practitioners is incidental only to the major function which is to reveal the first coming of the Christ as the consciousness of mankind. This will be the first time that this has ever happened on the face of the globe, and it will be the last time because the Christ will never be lost once it is established. The Christ can be lost when it comes as the consciousness of only one individual or even as the consciousness of one group because when that individual or that group leaves the earth the consciousness departs, but when the Christ comes as the consciousness of mankind, it will never again be absent from the world.”
Given Joel’s admiration for freedom here is a good article to show what we have been living under. Please continue to pray (meditate) for our country and the world.
I am asking for anyone interested in joining prayer for our country to contact me at email@example.com. We will begin a group to do World Work. Please be familiar with the term and the foundations of America.
December 6, 2020 -THUNDER OF SILENCE
A terrific review of The Thunder of Silence from the 1961 Monthly Letter can be found posted here today. It may be a nice book for gift giving at Christmas for a special friend or loved one.
December 4, 2020 – MANLY HALL – UNSEEN FORCES THAT AFFECT OUR LIVES
An excellent lecture on the human condition which may help students on our path. Manly Hall is an valuable resource for us as background and history. He is a sincere teacher of wisdom. Joel makes many metaphysical references which may be puzzling to today’s students. I feel that Hall helps give depth and background. Joel knew Manly Hall. They were colleagues during the decades of metaphysical awakening in the West in the early 20th Century. Both Hall and Joel lived in Hollywood in the late 1940’s in Los Angeles, both were Masons and both understood enlightenment.

Nov. 11, 2020 Transformation in Sunday Meetings
I was reading a passage in a Quaker pamphlet which talked about what happens in Quaker meetings. It felt so familiar, for it is how I feel about our Sunday meetings. Joel thought highly of Friends and we feel a kinship with their worship as their meetings are meetings of silent meditation.
“Through the process by which Quakers attain the sense of the meeting, transformation occurs. We are changed. We feel, in a literal way, the loving Presence which hovers over us. It manifests in the love we have for one another. We form invisible bonds among ourselves which transcend the petty and make the next sense of the meeting more desirable and more readily attainable. We are participants in each other’s well being. Later we may stop to wonder whose idea evolved into the sense of the meeting. But we can’t remember. We sense that the sense of the meeting came through us and for us, but not from us. We are amazed that it works- exactly as it’s supposed to….
We absorb and are absorbed by the Light. We reach, if only momentarily, that place beyond time where we taste tranquility. We have slipped beyond issues and answers to a place where peace and love are the same words. We are immersed in a mystical moment even though we might not consider ourselves mystics. We take to ourselves the gift of experiential faith which the early Friends promised…. There are no political solutions to what are basically spiritual questions…. Laws do not transform hearts. Disarmament treaties do not disarm minds. Cargoes of food temporarily fill bellies but never fill the cavern of spiritual emptiness. The process through which Quakers reach the sense of meeting transforms hearts, disarms minds, and feeds the spirit.”

Salvaging Sense of Meeting”

October 4, 2020 Joel’s Hope for His Students
Joel explains his greatest hope for his teaching, world prayer. The miracle of Howard Hughes’ crash landing in Beverly Hills in 1946 inspired his revelation.
“As the illumined of every age touch the darkened senses of man and awaken a spark of Light, and thus work is carried forward in human consciousness until That Day, long prophesied, when the Kingdom of Heaven shall be established on earth. In this day, peace, joy, and prosperity will be the natural experience of everyone through all time.” Spiritual Journey of Joel S. Goldsmith, p. 170
OMNIPRESENCE is probably one of the most powerful spiritual principles. Regardless of one’s religion, if there is an acceptance and understanding of God, then to know that that God is always with you everywhere you go, under every circumstance, is the foundation of healing and illumination. – Jasha
Please let me know if you are interested in a Basic Infinite Way Closed Class covering principles, practices and history of The Infinite Way. Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. The tuition will be determined by each student’s spiritual sense of gratitude.
