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 July 1, 2019)

The current recording is #549, Side 2, from the 1964 Oahu / Maui Series, titled “Between Two Worlds—Mystical Power.” 

While this class does not address world work head-on, it clarifies a prerequisite for world work: We do not accept that what we see is what IS.  Joel helps us hew to that mark by focusing on this important theme: “There is only one world, and this is that world.  But—about this magnificent, spiritual world we entertain a false concept.”  He points out that if we judge by appearances we do not see or experience the world as it truly IS.  When we look at the world through the newspapers, radio, and television, we see hatred, bigotry, malice, disease, sin, fear, and man’s inhumanity to man, and we say, “What a terrible world!”  But there is no such world out there.  The evil, error, and limitation represent a universal concept of the world.  They do not exist in the real world of God’s creating.

Joel explains that the world we see and experience is a projection of our individual state of consciousness.  So instead of judging by appearances and praying for a change in appearance, we must turn within to contemplate, meditate, and come to realize the true nature of the world.  This spiritual realization dissolves the false concept for us and helps to dissolve it for mankind.

(Please note that there are several long pauses in this recording.  Nothing is wrong with the player.)

This recording is approximately 1 hour long.  This class was used as source material for Chapter 11, “Spiritual Supply,” and Chapter 12, “The Power and Dominion,” in Living Between Two Worlds.

  • The recording will be available for listening through July 31, 2019.
