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.

While Joel never uses the term “world work” In this class, he is actually explaining some of what stands behind world work and the nature of the consciousness we must have to do it.  He says:

All of our work, then, is really attuning our consciousness to the Divine, opening ourselves to the realization of Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience; praying from the heart, ‘Thy will be done in me, not mine,’ and then giving up many of the concepts that we have been entertaining—concepts of each other, concepts of the world, concepts of man.”  

Then we are attuning to the exercise of spiritual power and spiritual wisdom. It is only in the degree that we can pray for each other, friend and enemy; it is only in the degree that we can realize Omniscience, Omnipotence, Omnipresence universally that our consciousness becomes a transparency for the spiritual power that makes it possible for us to heal, reform, forgive, and supply others.

Joel points out that the spiritually endowed do not receive.  They are the instrumentalities through which God’s grace is given.  He teaches that we can prepare ourselves to be worthy instruments for the flow of divine grace, not so much for your good or mine, but that the entire world may be embraced in divine love.  Then we, too, partake of it because we are part of that world.

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