World Work Recordings

Joel gave several beautiful classes on world work and on 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 listening at any time for one month after it is posted.  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 September 1, 2021)

The recording for this month is 155A, from the 1956 Barbizon Plaza Private Class for “25,” titled “Three Daily Meditations – Realized Consciousness.”

This month we go back to a private class in which Joel is introducing world work to a group of advanced students.  He explains how the idea of world work came to him and the spiritual principle behind it.  Even if you have been doing world work for some time, this class is a wonderful “refresher course.”

After some preliminary comments about Infinite Way work, Joel declares, “The world is suffering from only one disease . . . and that one you may call material sense.”  He goes on to explain that the function of the developed, realized, Christ consciousness is to destroy material sense; to destroy that state of consciousness that is responsible for sin, disease, death, lack, limitation, wars, thefts, murders, adulteries, and all the rest of those things that stem from material sense.

Because material sense disappears when spiritual consciousness touches receptive consciousness, our function in life is to develop within ourselves a greater degree of spiritual illumination.  Our object is the attainment and realization of a spiritual consciousness, so that we can be more effective in dissolving the sense of materiality that grips the world.

Joel describes in detail how to approach each of the three periods of world work and says that in doing this work, Infinite Way students will be a spiritual band of united consciousness working around the globe.  He says, “Our goal is not stopping wars. Our goal is not emptying hospitals of sick people. Our goal is not making all poor people have abundance. Our goal is the destruction of material sense, so that the new creature, Christ, may be revealed as individual being.”
