World Work Recordings

Joel gave several beautiful classes on world work and topics related to world work.  Since Joel’s recordings are still under copy protection, we have obtained permission to post some of these recordings in their entirety for your online or telephone listening.  Each recording will be available for one month from the time of posting for listening at any time.  There is a list of previously posted recordings at the bottom of this page.  

To hear the recording by telephone, call 1-641-715-3900, and enter the extension number 828754, followed by the pound sign (#).  After you enter the extension number, the introduction to the recording will begin, followed by the recording itself.  The telephone number and the extension number will always be the same, even as we change the recording each month.  Depending on your telephone calling plan, the call may or may not incur a charge, so it is a good idea to check whether your plan covers calls to the 641 area code.  Even if you usually participate in the tape group by computer, the telephone option is convenient when you would like to listen to the recording but for some reason do not have access to your computer.

Current Recording (Posted April 1, 2018)

Our “world work” always involves more than the three daily world work meditations.  To have a role in lifting world consciousness, we must constantly live by the spiritual practices Joel has given us. These include seeing through all appearances—the good and the evil—and standing fast in the truth.

In this class, Joel focuses on this practice of seeing through appearances, which is based on one of the most challenging lessons in the Infinite Way teaching:  There is only one world and it is spiritual, but we entertain a materialistic concept of that spiritual world.  That materialistic concept presents an imaginary world that has no external existence, so with human sense, we do not see what IS.  As we develop the faculty of spiritual discernment, which is entirely different than any human faculty, we are able to see the world as it is, and that materialistic concept evaporates.  In its place we see the world of perfect harmony, heaven on earth.

Joel says that the ability to move from the material sense world into the world of spiritual discernment is proportionate to your ability to close your eyes to the appearance, and wait  for that inner intuition, that voice of God, to reveal to you the truth of what you are beholding. It is as simple as that, and it is as difficult as that.

This class is #546, Tape 3, Side 2, from the 1964 Oahu/Maui Series, titled “Between Two Worlds—Material Sense, Spiritual Discernment,” and is approximately one hour long.  It is the basis for Chapter 5, “The World of Material Sense and the World of Spiritual Discernment,” in Living Between Two Worlds.  

The recording will be available for listening through April 30, 2018.

“To live spiritually is to know that all is; then do not name, label, define, or judge what is. Be content to know IS, and let what IS reveal Its being, nature, and character to you.” (Wisdom 6)

“These things we perceive with the five senses are objects of mind, with no relationship to Truth.” (Wisdom 126)
