DISPEL THE LANGUAGE OF COMPARISONS

What if it just is?
Not more or less, right or wrong.
It is what it is.

Duality stems
from the comparing trickster.
The either/or game.

What if opposites
are an unreal illusion,
a false conclusion?

Nothing has power
unless we assign “good,” “bad.”
What if it just is?

Choose to let go of
human theories, terms, labels,
perceptions, judgments.

Our thoughts and beliefs
form the experiences
we then encounter.

With eyes of Spirit
all that exists is oneness,
peace, plenty, pureness.
 


 

Beliefs affect only the believer.

ANIMALS BORN OF GOOD HEART

Cherished animals
with special needs for their care.
Please meet our “Best Friends.”

Cats, dogs, birds, horses—
they melt and open our hearts
to mutual love.

So much we can give
for their and our enrichment.
One sacred union.


 


 

Thirty-three years ago, a group of people made a leap of faith
to realize a vision that they had long shared — to create a
sanctuary for abandoned and abused animals. This was the
logical extension of the rescue and advocacy work they had
been doing for years. Little did they appreciate that their
endeavor would catapult them to the forefront of a fledging
movement to end the killing of 17 million dogs and cats who
were dying in our nation’s shelters annually at that time.
With little money, no master plan, few construction skills
and countless lives hanging in the balance, they set out to
address a local aspect of a much larger problem. What they
created instead was the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in
the world and a national movement to end the
killing of companion animals.
The beginnings of Best Friends Animal Society® in Kanab, Utah

The Golden Rule of the Sanctuary is to treat all
living things as we ourselves would wish to be treated.

Their Rule of Kindness is to demonstrate compassion and
respect for all living creatures.

When people can no longer say, “it’s only a dog,”
that is social change.
Cyrus Mejia, one of the 31 founding members of Best Friends

REALIZATION OF THE DIVINE UNIVERSAL LIFE

 

Everything is included.
Everything is connected.
Everything is equal.
Everything is provided.
Everything is loved.

All IS harmony, peace, beauty,
wholeness, perfection!

Spirit embodied.
Reality embodied.
Truth embodied.
Grace embodied.
Light embodied.

Love is Universal Life.
Divinity revealed.
God-ness experienced.

 


We are all the same energy, coalesced, compressed in
different ways to create different forms and
different matter. And so the Great Mystery is
that there is only ONE OF US, and it is That
Which You Are! I tell you this:
We are all the same stuff.
God speaking to Neale Donald Walsch in the “Conversations with God” books

“THE MYSTICAL I”—A FREE E-BOOK

I close my eyes and gently within myself say the word,
“I, I, I”—silently, sacredly, secretly. I always keep
that I sacred and secret within myself and then watch
how my life transforms outwardly. My last thought at
night is, “Thank You, Father, for the I that abides in
me and for my oneness with all that You are.” Then,
all that I am becomes my experience. All that I have
becomes mine. All My peace becomes mine.
An excerpt from The Mystical I by Joel Goldsmith

 

As noted on the back cover of many of Joel S. Goldsmith’s books, this short biographical sketch appears that describes this internationally recognized, modern-day mystic:

Joel S. Goldsmith (March 10, 1892 — June 17, 1964), a
monumental teacher of practical mysticism, devoted
most of his life to the discovery and teaching of
spiritual principles, that he defined and called “The
Infinite Way.” In 1947, after the publication of his
seminal book, The Infinite Way, Joel traveled throughout
the world for many years as a spiritual teacher and
healer. Although his message was neither organized
nor advertised, students of The Infinite Way have
multiplied as individuals from around the world share
his spiritual wisdom. He is the author of more than
thirty books, most of which continue to remain in
lively demand and which are highly praised by the
current spiritual luminaries.

Joel Goldsmith has opened a door in my soul. He has
helped me immeasurably in my search for peace.
Marianne Williamson, author of The Gift of Change

A new generation of mature seekers, receptive to spiritual
truth, is now discovering Joel Goldsmith’s teachings,
which have lost none of their relevance, aliveness and
power. I foresee that those teachings will reach and
impact even more people in the 21st century than during
his lifetime. Joel Goldsmith’s inspired and profoundly
inspiring books represent a vital contribution to the
spiritual awakening of humanity.
Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

I have an 8×10 picture of Joel Goldsmith on my writing
table. I feel his presence with me every day – I
consider Joel to be one of my most important teachers.
His wisdom guides me in all of my work.
Dr. Wayne Dyer, Ph.D., author of The Power of Intention

Joel Goldsmith is the ultimate teacher of spiritual wisdom.
Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D., author of Love is Letting Go of Fear

 


During the summer, I compiled a summarized or synoptic version of the book, The Mystical I, that has been posted on the Infinite Way Hub website and is available to download as a free e-book. Originally published in 1966 as a collection of Infinite Way Letters, this book was one of four or five books that Joel noted were among his most important spiritual contributions.

Here is the introduction I wrote for the book synopsis:

The following is an abbreviated format, chapter by chapter, of the principles and key spiritual concepts that Joel outlines in this book. Consider them the highlighted pearls of wisdom and truth. Most of the sentences and short paragraphs are the exact wording, as they appear in the text. Others have been slightly edited, shortened, condensed, or rearranged. With a specific topic, like healing, the segments of it mentioned throughout a chapter have been consolidated. Some of the statements that contain the personal pronoun, “I,” were changed from pronouns like “we” or “you” so that sentences can be read and used like a quieting thought, much like a peaceful prayer of affirmation and truth—thoughts to use while the mind slows, deepens, and enters the receptive state of Silence at the center of being. In such profound stillness, the presence of I comes forth and is realized within our own consciousness.

SAINT FELIS

 

Acts of great kindness,
she walks streets early to feed.
So many mouths wait.

Stroking of the heads,
the cats respond with such trust.
Furred-coat angels smile.

Cat-with-human bonds.
Saint Felis is who we are.
Relaxed, blissful purrs.

Godly saint and cat.
Day’s offerings licked from paws.
Sunning, peaceful rest.

 

 


 

I believe cats to be spirits come to earth.
A cat, I am sure, could walk on
a cloud without coming through.
Jules Verne

SPIRITUAL CONFLUENCE

 

All the ones who bless
live at spiritual Heights.
Their heartbeat is ours.

Sainted as we are
send high vibrations to life.
Pure Light sparkles forth.

Truly confluence
is Invisible made seen.
No veils impede Love.
 


 

Why seek Heaven?
It is before me now.
A Persian saying
 


 

Our example of spiritual brotherhood and love
is but a tiny bit of stone dropped into the
waters of human consciousness, the circles
of which will spread across the world.
Joel S. Goldsmith, from a talk given in the
presence of Swami Ramdas at Anandashram, India, 1955

BEWICK’S WREN—HIS OWN SONG

 

Once upon a springtime, seven white eggs, colored with brown and gray blotches, are laid in an open, cup-shaped nest by a female Bewick’s wren. She incubates and watches over her egg brood with diligent care, as well as often foraging with her partner.

In this lineage of Wren, the “son” learns to sing from hearing the personal songs of not only his “father” but also from the neighboring, adult males. During the first 30 to 60 days or so of his life, the young bird cleverly varies notes and syllables from the other male songs, while also composing two-to-three, unique parts for “his” song. Considered “master vocalists,” the son creates a differentiated version that is his own individualized, musical signature.1

One day, this jittery little bird flies free of the nest, born upward on the power of his own wings, endowed with an inner song that forever afterward is his exclusive, melodic contribution to life.

Yet, his song will also blend into the great Cosmic Song of the Birds—as an individual and at the same time united with all Life.

In the mystical literature of the world, this is analogous to the “spiritual marriage.” There is a point of culmination for every mystic when inwardly the human self meets the divine Self. At last, the two so-called “selves” unite in oneness. What was once a personal, physical, worldly sense of self disappears. This final “death” and “rebirth” is the full awakening into what was already, eternally present—our spiritual nature and identity. The Master Jesus describes this high state of divine Consciousness as “The Father and I are one.” This One Spirit expresses as a Bewick wren, a towering oak, the soil underfoot, a person walking quietly along a streamside path.
 


 

There is not an animal on earth, nor a flying
creature flying on two wings, but they
are peoples like unto you.
from the Mohammedan Scriptures
 


 

In absolute Consciousness, there is no loss of identity.
I remain myself, and you remain yourself, and yet
there is no place where one begins and the other ends.
Joel S. Goldsmith, trailblazer on the Infinite Way of life

SPIRITUAL FAITH

 

“Millions of fine people the world over ‘believe’ in God;
have ‘faith’ that God will heal, save, reform, enrich—
as the case may be. Most of these earnest ones go
through an entire life span—believing, having faith—
yet witnessing little or no fruitage from their faith.
Actually, it has rarely been revealed to the world
that faith is not an activity of the mind; is not an
act or concept of the intellect—and therefore such
believing or faith is without ‘signs following.’

“Faith is a spiritual perception entirely apart from
conscious thought or human reason. Faith is a
transcendental quality, an act of the Soul.
Faith is achieved only as one refuses ‘to believe’
or ‘have faith’ and retires into the withinness
of himself, and there asks for light and spiritual
realization. Faith is the ability to see the
invisible, hear the inaudible, know the
unknowable—and this is possible only through
inner vision spiritual perception.”
 
Joel S. Goldsmith, The Heart of Mysticism, pages 364-5

 


 

Faith within, faith without.
Harmony within, harmony without.
Purity within, purity without.
Love within, love without.

SPIRITUAL IMMERSION

 

When we are immersed in the Spirit, it means we are:

Self-sufficient,

Self-complete,

Self-graced.

When you are immersed in the Divine, which is your true, inner Self, you are already ALL that you are. No outward thing, experience, situation, condition, locality, or person can add any measure to your intrinsic wholeness. Your inward fullness is already present. You can share all of life’s joyous wonders together, of course, but each one’s individual Light shines forth from within.

As well, there is always an inverse relationship between the material and spiritual realms. The more you are in the mind-set of “me,” “my,” and “mine,” the more you are earthbound in a personal sense of self, feeling that the responsibility for your life is entirely on your shoulders. The more your consciousness is an expression of the “I am that I am,” the more you are spiritually immersed and boundlessly love-filled.
 


 

In Hinduism, OM or AUM is a sacred sound and
spiritual symbol (pratima) referring to Atman (which
signifies the soul or self within) and Brahman (which
is the ultimate reality; entirety of the universe; the
supreme, divine spirit; cosmic principles, truth). This
syllable is among the most important symbols in
Hinduism and is often found at the beginning and
the end of chapters in the Vedas, the Upanishads,
and other Hindu texts.
