Our Foundation Spiritual Principles:


  • G-d is Absolute Good, everywhere present.
  • Every human being is an expression of the divine; the Christ Spirit, by whatever name, indwells all people. Their very essence is of G-d, and therefore they are also inherently good.

  • Human beings create their experience by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.

  • Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with G-d-mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.

  • Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the Truth that he or she knows.

Weekly Message for October 18, 2020


                We read in the ancient wisdom, "be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind" and  in these simple words are the power to change our lives and to live in the security of knowing that the Power of Life is inherent within us. I am repeating the last two Week's Messages as I feel the wisdom gifted to us included in these Messages from Joel Goldsmith, if "registered" in our mind as truth, can transform our lives in the most positive and powerful ways. These messages are to be "studied" and re-read when necessary to keep our mind transformed with this eternal truth:

            I have read and studied most of the books attributed to the teachings of the great American healer, Joel Goldsmith. He never wrote most of the books that have his name attached to them but they are all filled with words from his lectures and classes. He was a spiritual practitioner that arose from the Christian Science organization to become the most prolific of spiritual practitioners. His teachings generally lean toward the mystical rather than practical metaphysics. I was told early on in my spiritual studies that his teachings were for the more enlightened among us. I think we can assume that level of enlightenment as we read/study the following from the book "Awakening Mystical 'Consciousness":
                           Isaiah must have had the healing gift because he said, "The Spirit of of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed e to preach good tidings unto the meek (teachable); he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives." He knew there were no other gods before Me. The I of his being was the infinity of being, and there were no other powers.
                           A mystic of that attainment will not say, "Oh, the power of God* works through me to heal you" or "God will heal you."  He know God never healed anybody or anything. What would you think of a God who would heal one person and not all persons?  The sinners usually have the best record of being healed, while it would appear that God has not healed the countless good men and women on earth.
                           It is a person's realization that disease is not a power that is responsible for healing. That is why Jesus did not say, "God will heal you." He said, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." He did not say, "God will forgive you." He said, "Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more."
                           Most modern mystics like Whitman and Tennyson were not healers because they did not have the vision of God as the Only and the Infinite. They had God and error, too; they had God and something from which God could protect or save people. They had God and something of which God could heal them, but that is not the fully mystical awareness of Jesus Christ (Christ consciousness).<> Note: the words in red are my insertion and not from the book/ the * denotes that the spelling of God is Joel's and not mine.

                Joel is getting us acquainted with the mystical awareness of the Master Mind Jesus which was an expanded awareness from that of the mystical Isaiah. The most mystical statement from Isaiah is "besides me there is none other" informing us that G-d Is All and All Is G-d. The Master Mind Jesus came into this realization to a greater degree than any other mystic that  I am aware of. I assure you that we can partake of this All-ness of the Intelligence, Power and Spirit that we call G-d for lack of a better word. All we must do is seek the Intelligence in the silence of our mind and seek the Power of Life in this very same silence. As within, so without. If we don't go within we will definitely go without. Seek the Spirit with your mind and your heart. Make G-d your One and Only for in truth that is what G-d Is.


       This week I want to continue with some more wisdom from Joel Goldsmith's book "Awakening Mystical Consciousness" as I believe his work to be aspirational for so many of us.

                What Goldsmith is teaching in this and the many other books which contain his lectures and talks transcribed, is not new, just a different approach to that which has been revealed before. The Master Mind Jesus approached the teaching of truth in the same way. What we want to realize from this gift of enlightened wisdom is that we are all have the same access to power and wisdom that all those we considered the Greats possessed ... "what one can do all can do" is a spiritual principle and a fact.

                  As you read the following from Goldsmith's book, please note that I am not changing his words; however, his spelling of God and his use of the term Father, causes so many to be confused thinking he is referring to the "big guy in the sky god" of religion and so I use the spelling G-d and define this G-d has infinite Spirit, Power and Intelligence, not defined by gender or human form.

                  From the book: "From the moment a person realizes even in a measure, "Thank You, Father, I am one with You, and all that You have is mine. I am not dependent on "man" whose breath is in his nostrils. I am not dependent on earning my living by the sweat of my brow," he [she] begins to be picked up by an invisible Presence. Supply opens in the most normal and natural ways, without taking thought, without fighting, without arguing, without suing.
                You may have a mystical experience and you may have a great deal of sickness and poverty; but if you do, it is only because you are still embracing the idea of God as a power over evil. In doing that, you are holding yourself in the dream. If you relax and let go, stop thinking, and just enjoy that inner communion with God, agreeing there is no power apart from God, you will be picked up by this inner Thing called the Christ, the Spirit of God in man [mankind], or the Holy Ghost; and you will understand why Paul could say, "I live; yet not I, but the Christ liveth in me." . . . "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."<>

                This "Christ" within each and everyone of us is the Power of Life within us; it is Intelligence and Spirit. It is the Power that we use when we "know" that what we accept for ourselves is ours at the moment of acceptance. It is our health, our opportunity for success and greater wealth, our guidance to move through whatever it is we need to move through at any given moment. It is not obstructed as long as we don't think or believe it can be obstructed. This is our truth and our power.

Keep the Faith!
