Our Current Study Program

On October 2, 2021, we began a study program of the book I Stand on Holy Ground.  I Stand on Holy Ground  is the collection of the 1976 Infinite Way Monthly Letters and is based largely on Joel’s 1960 work.  The book description provides a preview:

Throughout his entire teaching ministry, Joel Goldsmith taught the spiritual principle that God is expressed as individual consciousness, “as your consciousness and mine.” Often he used the scriptural quote: “The place where thou standest is holy ground” to emphasize this principle. As Goldsmith says in I Stand on Holy Ground, “There is but one God, and that God is within you. He is with you if you mount up to heaven; He is with you if you make your bed in hell; He is with you if you walk through the valley of the shadow of death. God will function in your experience in the moment of your recognition of Him.”

In I Stand on Holy Ground, Goldsmith brings the reader to a profound understanding of how to live a spiritual, contemplative life, consciously aware of the presence of God within and constantly recognizing the key mystical truth: “I and the Father are one.” He shows the practicality of abiding in this truth, as when he says: “Where the threat of danger lurks, you will find your security by carrying with you the realization that the place where you stand is holy ground and that no danger of any kind can come near your dwelling place, which is your consciousness.” Yet Goldsmith is careful to point out that it is not because God is omnipresent that you are safe, but “because of your conscious realization, recognition, and acknowledgment of God’s presence.”

I Stand on Holy Ground  presents The Infinite Way principles through the lens of recognizing the truth of our identity. It is a supremely valuable collection of lessons in vintage Goldsmith style.

This program is a valuable follow-up to our work with the Sermon on the Mount.

I Stand on Holy Ground  is available online and through bookstores by request.

 


General Schedule Information

The Online Tape Group meets on the first four Saturdays of every month. We meet at different times on alternate Saturdays in order to serve the various time zones around the world. Participants can join the meetings by using a computer, a telephone, or a mobile device.

On the first and third Saturdays of each month, the group meets at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time. This provides access at convenient times from North America eastward across South America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

On the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, the group meets at 6:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific Time. This provides access to the tape group at convenient times from North America westward across the Pacific to Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

We will play the same tape for two consecutive weeks so that both time zone groups can hear it. In other words, the tape that we play on the first Saturday at 8:00 a.m. will be played again on the second Saturday at 6:00 p.m. The tape that we play on the third Saturday at 8:00 a.m. will be repeated on the fourth Saturday at 6:00 p.m.

When a month has five Saturdays, we do not proceed with our regular study program on the fifth Saturday, but may schedule special sessions and hear recordings relating to a current holiday or to another timely topic. If we hold sessions on the fifth Saturday, we hold them at both 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., so that participants in all time zones can hear the recording.  We post the schedule for these special sessions well in advance.
