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 May 1, 2022)

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

We have posted this recording in years past, but very recently, we heard it again. We were struck by the profound beauty of this message and its acute timeliness for us today, and we decided to post it once more.

In this class, Joel reminds us that no one attains spiritual light for their own personal benefit. Any spiritual light that we attain 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.

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

When we are at peace, that peace flows out from us to the whole community. Peace begins with one individual who sparks the light in others, and through them, the 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.
