The Art of Spiritual Healing is based on Joel Goldsmith's many years of experience in practicing spiritual healing. In a decided departure from other books on the subject, Goldsmith reveals the spiritual principles that are the foundation for spiritual healing. He alternates instruction with meditation to demonstrate his conviction that since physical health is a manifestation of consciousness, physical well-being is a natural result of attaining the consciousness of oneness with God. Complete in scope and non-denominational in approach, The Art of Spiritual Healing is a simple, straightforward explanation of what to many is a mysterious and complex subject. The book is presented in four parts: "The Principles," "The Role of Treatment," "The Practice," and "Without Words or Thoughts." Goldsmith believes that the world needs people who, through devotion to God, are so filled with the Spirit that they can be the instruments through which healings take place. He says, "There is not a person reading this book, who should not be ready to accept the responsibility of beginning to heal now. It is not your spirituality or mine that will heal anybody; it is not your understanding or mine that is going to heal. It is God's understanding to which we make ourselves receptive by becoming still." Together with The Art of Meditation, Living the Infinite Way, and Practicing the Presence, this is a foundational book of the Infinite Way message.

Many books have been written about inward prayer, or meditation, but Joel Goldsmith's classic, The Art of Meditation, presents meditation not as a theory, but as a joyous and rewarding experience. The book begins with these words: "Most men and women are convinced that there is a divine Power of some sort operating in human affairs, but they are not sure what it is, nor do they know how to bring this divine Presence and Power into daily experience." In The Art of Meditation, Goldsmith shows the reader the way, and it is through meditation. Goldsmith says that on the whole, the world has no knowledge of God as the living Power and Presence with Whom we are one. If it did, its anguish, wars, sin, and death would vanish. But, he says, individuals can learn the nature of God and how to contact God. He writes: "Christ buried in the tomb of the mind will not come forth and do works, but Christ risen in our consciousness, Christ raised from the tomb through meditation and communion - that is the miracle worker of the ages." The Art of Meditation explains how this inner Presence, also called "the Christ," can be realized and can operate in daily life. While many people pray for the purpose of getting something, Goldsmith explains that we should enter meditation without ulterior motive: "Any meditation that has within itself a single trace of a desire to get something from God or to acquire something through God is no longer meditation." He presents meditation as a turning within and listening. At some moment in that quietude, when human thought is stilled and the noise of human living is hushed, the God-experience comes in. The Art of Meditation gives the reader careful instructions about how to undertake the beautiful spiritual practice of daily meditation. Goldsmith says that the purpose of this book is "to help students practice the art of meditation by which the Word takes root, so that they come into an actual awareness, an actual consciousness of living in the Spirit." The object is to reach the state of consciousness revealed by Paul: "I live yet not I, Christ liveth my life." Then God appears as the wholeness, the abundance, the harmony, the peace, and the joy of our experience. One of the best known volumes of Goldsmith's work, The Art of Meditation is one of the four foundational books in the Infinite Way teachings.

All inhabitants of this terrestrial plane are, to some degree, influenced by a dual nature: an outward sense of mortal self and an inner sense of higher Self. This duality keeps us at odds, resulting in a divided consciousness and a life of conflict. A Glimpse into Your Spiritual Identity presents a compilation of the early works of authors Stephen and Lynn Jay, originally published in 1982. Through a penetrating study of the mind and an exposé of human nature, it reveals a step-by-step journey toward gaining a greater understanding of and mastery over self. Dominion over the self is brought to pass by an application of the basic underlying principles of life and from becoming acquainted with your Soul. When consciousness is aligned with heaven, the windows of the Soul are flung open, allowing us a glimpse into our reality. This guide refreshes consciousness in remembrance and reinforces resolve with the newness and excitement of soul discovery and exploration. A Glimpse into Your Spiritual Identity is a foundational book to spring from or to act as a reminder of lessons that many of us tend to skim over as we spiritually progress on our odyssey of discovering our Soul.

In describing A Parenthesis in Eternity, Goldsmith said, "In many classes I have touched upon mysticism to prepare our students for the unfoldment of the real meaning and function of the Infinite Way. Now, in the book, A Parenthesis in Eternity, my entire inner life is disclosed: my reason for living and my mission. The autobiography of my personal life would be boring: uneventful school days, routine business experience, and then out of the blue sky, a spiritual experience. This book is my spiritual life as many of you have seen it from the outside, but here explained from the inside." A Parenthesis in Eternity is a compelling, comprehensive presentation of the mystical journey that Goldsmith experienced. In Part 1, he lays out the principles that form the basis of mysticism, explaining that at its core is the truth that there is an inner, divine spiritual Self, a manifestation of God, which is our true identity. In Part 2, Goldsmith explains that as humans, we live in a "parenthesis" of the seeming boundaries of birth and death, as well as in mental and material limitation. The purpose of the spiritual path, he says is to wipe out this parenthesis and bring us to the mystical experience of conscious union with God. With deep knowledge born of experience, Goldsmith describes the path we must travel to attain that goal, fully explaining the three stages, or "degrees" of spiritual unfoldment. In Part 3, Goldsmith elaborates on the nature and quality of the mystical life, emphasizing that this fourth dimensional consciousness is practical, for it is the secret of an harmonious, abundant life, free from fear and discord. All spiritual seekers will find A Parenthesis in Eternity to be an engaging, enlightening gift from one of the leading spiritual teachers of the 20th century.

Joel Goldsmith taught that we all have a mission in life and that the purpose to living a spiritual life is to prepare us to do healing work in the world. That mission, Goldsmith believed, is the same for all of us - to heal the world from disease, sin, corruption, poverty, exploitation of natural resources, pollution, crime, and war. We are guided on this life path only by personal revelation - what Goldsmith called "The Infinite Way." The form can be whatever tradition best suits us, be it Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, or Muslim. "Those of you who have witnessed or experienced spiritual healing realize that it was brought about by the realization of the Spirit; of an individual whom we may call practitioner, teacher, leader, or minister," writes Goldsmith. "The healing, the performing, the saving processes do not take place until that Spirit is brought to light in and through the consciousness of an individual." Living by Grace is a masterful collection of Goldsmith's deepest teachings on how to live The Infinite Way and be a healing influence. It includes an overview of the path to spiritual consciousness from the neophyte to the final stages. Never before published in one volume, these essays consistently display the wisdom of Goldsmith's insights into the hidden power within us. As he reminds us, "That which I am seeking, I am." Note: Living by Grace is the collection of the 1984 Infinite Way Letters.]

Man's eternal quest for self-knowledge and self-fulfillment demands a continuing expansion of consciousness. Consciousness, the secret of life, determines man's experiences. Discovery of this secret is the primary purpose of man's presence in the world.On the mystical path, you learn that the goal in life is releasing the soul from the tomb of human existence, more especially the tomb of the human mind. If we are to experience the soul, we have to break through the limitations of the body and the mind. The reason that this realm of the soul is so little known is that God is spoken of as God without the realization that God is the soul of man. The purpose of man is to show forth the nature of God. Man originally was intended to be the instrument through which, or as which, God lives on earth. Man is the great glory of God. Man was not meant to cry, and all his tears are shed only because of a sense of limitation. Every tear you shed is proof of some form of limitation being experienced in your life. Man was not born to cry!

Practicing the Presence is one of the four foundational books among Joel Goldsmith's Infinite Way writings. Goldsmith recommended that new students begin with this book, together with Living the Infinite Way. Practicing the Presence is a celebrated guide to the awareness of the divine and transcendental in our daily lives. Goldsmith writes that it was during one of his periods of contemplation that the words came to him, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee." This surprised him, because at that time he was little acquainted with the Bible and only occasionally went to church. But through the study of Scripture and the practice of its teachings, Goldsmith realized that a Presence was with him, counseling, sustaining, and leading him into greater spiritual awareness. Following that realization, he traveled throughout the world, teaching others to know this Presence. Goldsmith says, "Every person who has known dissatisfaction, incompleteness, and frustration will someday learn that there is only one missing link in this entire chain of harmonious living. That is the practice of the presence of God - consciously, daily and hourly, abiding in some great spiritual truth of scripture, and it makes no difference which scripture: Christian, Hebrew, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, or Moslem." If we begin with practicing the presence of God, it leads to an inner stillness that makes it possible to meditate. Goldsmith sets forth for the reader how to practice the presence from the moment we awaken to the moment we retire for sleep. To Goldsmith, harmonious living is all a matter of consciousness. When we have the right consciousness, we do not want things, but we express the very things which formerly we sought. So, instead of a change of circumstances, what the seeker needs is a change of consciousness. Practicing the Presence helps the seeker make that change by opening consciousness to the life by grace. In clear and direct language, Goldsmith shows that by constantly and consciously practicing the presence of God in every experience of our daily life, the struggles of existence pass and harmony is established in every department of our lives. "Seek neither health, nor wealth, nor fame, nor fortune," the author writes. "Seek first the realization of this inner kingdom and be a beholder as these outer things are added."

The lectures presented in Consciousness In Transition are significant because they are among the first of what can be called the Infinite Way writings. Goldsmith's new students requested classes and instruction in how to live the Infinite Way principles to make them a part of daily life. In these early talks, Goldsmith began to amplify these spiritual principles, giving specific instruction on how to "live and move and have your being" in this state of consciousness. This lecture series lays out a living way of meditation, spiritual healing, effective prayer and true abundance - a life of connectedness to the Source. He emphasized that the truth he spoke about was the same truth that has been passed down by saints, seers and teachers through the ages - and that it is the same truth that is within each and every individual in the world.

It is your piritual good, your spiritual medicine; it is your spiritual ejuvenation, your spiritual rebirthing.

The Easter Letters comprises ten of these letters, each of which beautifully commemorates the mystery and majesty of Easter. Whereas Christmas brings the promise of peace on earth to all, within all, Easter reveals the achievement of full Christhood by the Master and reveals the way by which we can attain immortality.
