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 November 1, 2020)

The recording for this month is 439B, from the 1961 Hawaiian Village Open Class, titled “Address the World Silently with Peace.”  

  • This recording is approximately one hour long.  It was used as source material for Chapter 32, “Address the World Silently with Peace,” in  A Parenthesis in Eternity, and Chapter 7, “When We Indulge in Condemnation,” and Chapter 8, “When We Spread Fear, Rumor, Hysteria, and Mass Confusion,” in The Government of Eden.
  • The recording will be available for listening through November 30, 2020.

This lesson from Joel is as timely today as it was in 1961.  In this class, Joel emphasizes that no one attains spiritual light for his own personal benefit; it is  meant to be used for the benefit of human consciousness, until human consciousness is entirely dissolved, and nothing remains but that mind which was also in Christ Jesus.  This is the goal of world work.

Joel counsels us that we have to study, meditate, and do all that we can to bring greater light to our individual consciousness so that the light that touches our consciousness will flow forth to the world, and we become a center of light for healing, regeneration, blessing, peace, comfort, and especially forgiveness. Further, we never pray that our enemies be destroyed; we abide in the will and way of God.

When we are at peace, Joel says, that peace flows out from us to the whole community. Peace begins with one individual who sparks the light in others until that light spreads around the world.  We can be that one to our household, to our neighborhood, and, depending on the depth and degree of our illumination, to a whole nation or a group of nations. Only when peace is established in the minds and hearts of mankind will peace be restored nationally and internationally.

You can listen to this recording from the Sanctuary page, which is a visually serene environment.
