1963 Kailua Private Class Transcripts
by Joel S. Goldsmith
Comb-bound – 8 ½ x 11″ – 151 pp.
An important “Note to the Reader” has been added to each of the new comb-bound books, which will provide you with a far greater understanding for the special significance of what was actually set in motion by Joel’s heart attack in 1962 while teaching in South Africa.
Following one initiation after another, Joel realized that he had actually experienced his own “crucifixion/resurrection” and why this was necessary. He was shown the important benefit of his own tumultuous experience for his students. By understanding Joel’s own experience, students in the future could be more readily lifted up without having to suffer all that he had personally endured. He also was shown a very important insight concerning his work for the Cuban Crisis which will be a benefit for students as well.
The “Note to the Reader” provides crucial information to optimize your study of this most important classwork and will benefit the many students who are ready to rise to a higher state of mystical understanding than ever before. The same “Note” is included in each of the three new books.
Joel experienced a very serious heart attack in South Africa in 1962. He was shown only later that this was really an initiation that took him through a painful personal experience of crucifixion, death, and rebirth–– to live in the resurrection as LOVE. His heart was opened to allow a greater outflow of LOVE: “This subject of LOVE started with me in South Africa on this last trip, and every once in awhile I find it coming to the surface, so that I do know thereby that something or other is unfolding to deepen this experience of LOVE within me… Because I have always loved God, I have been as nice to people as I know how, but I never loved them. Now God has moved into my heart, and you cannot know how different all people seem to me. I simply have not seen one with a fault––Ignorance of life and truth, yes, but that is their only fault.”
After returning home to Hawaii Joel felt that something major was trying hard to break through. As he was patiently waiting for the ‘big flow’, 12 to 16 students would meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings in Joel’s study at his home in Kailua for personal instruction on Healing, Teaching, and Living The Infinite Way. In these transcripts the reader will find Joel’s key instructions to some of his most advanced students.
Contemplative Meditation with Scripture
by Joel Goldsmith
“Contemplative meditation is the preparatory step before pure meditation without words or thoughts and its main purpose it to keep the mind stayed on God—to acknowledge Him in all our ways—so that in quietness and in confidence we may ‘be still and know that I am God.’” In this invaluable message, Joel Goldsmith guides the reader through the practices of contemplative meditation. Not only does this book outline specific exercises useful for daily life, it reveals that meditation is a way of life that will bring the meditator into the ultimate experience of Oneness with his or her Source. That experience “without words or thoughts” brings peace and spiritual abundance into limitless expression. “Your having contemplated these truths is the reason there is peace in our midst. You have brought ‘the peace of God which passeth all understanding.’ If there is love here with us, you have brought the love that is without limit. If there is supply you have brought God’s storehouse. All that the Father has is yours, and you have brought it here.” read more »
The Impersonal Self
by Paul F. Gorman
Humanity's fundamental problem is its belief in a personal self and personal set of world conditions. Human life consists of "I, me, and mine." From this one belief stems all pain and suffering. Yet the truth of being and its world (the truth of you and your work!) is God, spirit, oneness—unconditional harmony and unity of all. As individuals awaken to their and their world's spiritual reality—the impersonal, boundless and omnipresent reality of God as all—freedom and fulfillment of being is discovered. read more »
