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.

In Joel’s instructions for world work, he tells us to begin our world work meditations with “a realization of the Christ.”  What does that mean?  Do we have a deep understanding of what is meant by “the Christ?”  In this month’s recording, Joel uses the Gospel of John to illumine the meaning of the Christ.  He explains the journey that culminates in the realization that the Christ dwells in every individual.  He speaks about how we come to rely on It and how we attain the state of consciousness where the Christ is living our life.

Then, as Joel says, “We remember that in the world, which is full of darkness, there is sin, there is ignorance, there is poverty, there is slavery, bondage, and we would be the instrument through which God’s grace may touch all human consciousness and enlighten it, awaken it, that all mankind may be free.”

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