We have posted a new Question and Answer from Joel, in which he answers a question about how to regard the body.  The question came from someone who was previously a Christian Science practitioner.

Our Next Study Program

In mid-March, we will finish with the book Realization of Oneness.  This has been a most valuable, in-depth study of the healing principles as Joel presented them, and we thank you sincerely for your participation.

Before we turn to another book, we are going to take up a study of the “eight most important chapters” that Joel recommended from the Infinite Way writings.  In Chapter 10 of The Contemplative Life, Joel named eight specific chapters for serious study saying, “In order to build a consciousness of truth, all Infinite Way students should know the following passages as well as they know their own names.”  Later he said that these chapters are of paramount importance to the serious student because they contain the answers to almost every individual problem that can be brought to us, including family relations, illness, and supply. “If you work with those specific writings;” Joel said, “apply them to the problems of life that come to you in your own experience or that of your family or your patients; if you work with them over and over, they will develop fourth dimensional consciousness.”

We invite you to study these chapters in parallel with the associated recordings that we will hear.  The eight chapters are:

  1. “The New Horizon,” in The Infinite Way
  2. Chapter 4, “God Is One,” in Living the Infinite Way
  3. “Protection,” the March 1955 Infinite Way Letter, in The Heart of Mysticism (Note that The 1955 Letters is no longer published as a separate book.  The 1955 through 1959 Letters have been consolidated into The Heart of Mysticism.)
  4. “Break the Fetters That Bind You,” the October 1958 Infinite Way Letter, in The Heart of Mysticism (Note:  The 1958 Letters is no longer published as a separate book.  The 1955 through 1959 Letters have been consolidated into The Heart of Mysticism.)
  5. Chapter 8, “Contemplation Develops the Beholder,” in The Contemplative Life
  6. “Introduction,” in Practicing the Presence
  7. Chapter 5, “Love Thy Neighbor,” in Practicing the Presence
  8. Chapter 11, “The Relationship of Oneness,” in The Art of Spiritual Healing

Most likely, you already have the books in which these chapters appear.  If not, the books are readily and economically available in both print and e-book formats.  Clicking on the title of the book in the list above will take you to the book detail page for that book on the Acropolis Books website.  There, you can use the links provided to order the book.  Also, you can order print books by calling DeVorss & Company at 1-800-843-5743 between 8 AM and 4:30 PM Pacific time.

We look forward with joy to studying these important chapters with you.
