Now in paperback for the first time: Goldsmith's guide to tapping God's infinite wisdom and divine love, with clear guidelines for prayer and meditation. Joel Goldsmith (1892-1964) taught and lectured worldwide on the spiritual principles he named "The Infinite Way".
The class work in 1959 was devoted exclusively to reintroducing the healing principles of the Infinite Way, essential to establishing a foundation for mystical living. This work presents the lectures specifically identified by Joel as the series of classes which best expressed the Infinite Way healing principles.
All the error that has existed down the ages is founded on the theory or belief of two worlds, one the heavenly kingdom, or spiritual life, and the other a material world or mortal existence, each separate from the other. In spite of this sense of two worlds, men have always attempted to bring harmony into the discords of human existence through an attempt, by prayer, to contact this other world, or spiritual realm, and to bring Spirit, or God, to act upon the so-called material existence. Let us begin with the understanding that our world is not an erroneous one, but rather that the universe in which we live is the realm of reality about which man entertains a false concept. The work of bringing health and harmony into our experience is not, then, getting rid of, or even changing, a mortal material universe, but correcting the finite concept of our existence. This is the first edition text.
The Heart of Mysticism is a six-volume compilation of the monthly Letters Joel Goldsmith sent to students from 1954 through 1959. The Letters within these volumes provide lessons in spiritual living as well as instruction in how to apply specific spiritual principles in daily experience. The collection offers a comprehensive study of the message of The Infinite Way. As the author said, "There is nothing more precious in our entire library than the Infinite Way Letters."
Included in this collection of Medieval writings are Ray Petry's careful essays on the province and character of mysticism and the history of mysticism from Plato to Bernard of Clairvaux. Long recognized for the quality of its translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes, the Library of Christian Classics provides scholars and students with modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological texts in history. Through these works--each written prior to the end of the sixteenth century--contemporary readers are able to engage the ideas that have shaped Christian theology and the church through the centuries.
The letters not only reflect the changes that in 1954 brought the Infinite Way into its fullness as a universal message, but they also provide daily bread for anyone who is seeking reality,a life without limitation.
We are all captivated and puzzled by the infinite, in its many varied guises; by the endlessness of space and time; by the thought that between any two points in space, however close, there is always another; by the fact that numbers go on forever; and by the idea of an all-knowing, all-powerful God. In this acclaimed introduction to the infinite, A. W. Moore takes us on a journey back to early Greek thought about the infinite, from its inception to Aristotle. He then examines medieval and early modern conceptions of the infinite, including a brief history of the calculus, before turning to Kant and post-Kantian ideas. He also gives an account of Cantor’s remarkable discovery that some infinities are bigger than others. In the second part of the book, Moore develops his own views, drawing on technical advances in the mathematics of the infinite, including the celebrated theorems of Skolem and Gödel, and deriving inspiration from Wittgenstein. He concludes this part with a discussion of death and human finitude. For this third edition Moore has added a new part, ‘Infinity superseded’, which contains two new chapters refining his own ideas through a re-examination of the ideas of Spinoza, Hegel, and Nietzsche. This new part is heavily influenced by the work of Deleuze. Also new for the third edition are: a technical appendix on still unresolved questions about different infinite sizes; an expanded glossary; and updated references and further reading. The Infinite, Third Edition is ideal reading for anyone interested in an engaging and historically informed account of this fascinating topic, whether from a philosophical point of view, a mathematical point of view, or a religious point of view.
