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.

This is one of Joel’s timeless classes on world work.  It was given during his trip to London in 1964, just prior to his transition.  It is almost like a parting message to all Infinite Way students, in which he directs us to accept the responsibility of our spiritual state of consciousness and fulfill our obligation to the world by not “passing by on the other side of the road.”  Joel tells us that we must “take note of every discord, every inharmony, and bring to bear the activity of the Christ; be a transparency through which the Christ may dissolve the appearance.”

He adds, “It is given to men—the human world—to ignore the troubles of their fellow travelers, especially if they are of a different land or different religion or different race or different color,”  But he adds, “It is not so given unto you. The grace which you have received from God was given to you, not for you.  It was given to you as the fruitage of God, which the world is to eat.”

In this recording, Joel counsels us on how to bring the activity of the Christ to bear on the situations we meet in life and truly become a light to the world.

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