is just another word for nothing left to lose" goes
the Janis Joplin lyric, but if this is what we believe we are in for
some interesting experiences. And if we believe someone, some
individual, some government, some country, can give us true freedom,
then we are readying our mind for disappointments. The only
genuine freedom we will ever experience is in the Spirit or within our
own mind. That is, when we "dwell in the shelter of the
Most High" ... when our mind, our heart and our soul is in tune
with the Infinite. Yet, though this is possible for all of us,
very few will ever experience it because in order to do so our mind
must be free from the things of the world that negate the freedom of
the Spirit within us to express life through us. But, for those
who seek to be free, we can condition our mind to a greater degree of
acceptance and realization that our life is truly in the Spirit ...
just as we read in the ancient scripture, "in Him we live and
move and have our being" ... and this Him, Jesus tells us is
Spirit or Mind ... the One Mind which is the Intelligence, Power and
Spirit of G-d.
S. Goldsmith in his book "The Master Speaks" tells us ... "I
is God. I is infinite good. I is consciousness, life,
being. This I, is the I that I Am, and because of that I am, I
am; all that God is, I am; all that the Father hath is mine; all the
wisdom, guidance, direction, spiritual love, spiritual life, spiritual
soul, all of the love of God and of man, all that God knows of love,
constitutes the love of my being. It constitutes the God-love
which the individual needs. It constitutes my love for the
universal God; and thereby, It constitutes my love for all mankind,
for all whom I meet. and that immediately reminds me that that
love must include enemy as well as friend.
God is the
activity of my day: God is the activity of my work; and
therefore, it is God, the infinite Wisdom, which is outlining my day's
program. It is the one Intelligence, operating universally,
which brings to my desk whatever is necessary for me to do. I
know that the very God, Soul, or Consciousness, that formed me has
saved out for me all of my activity and all its fruitage, all of its
reward. I know that, because of this truth, I am never dependent
on man whose breath is in his nostrils. I am never dependent on
the good will of any man, woman, or child. All my good flows
from within to the without. The kingdom of God, of wholeness or
harmony, is within me; and in the degree of my understanding of that,
I can multiply loaves and fishes for all those who are not yet aware
of the fact that they also are a law of multiplication. I
realize, also, that because God is infinite, my being is infinite,
since I and the Father are one. Therefore, in this infinity of
being, I include all of God's good, and because of that infinity,
there is no room for error or evil or negation of any sort.
Therefore, there are no laws to act upon me.
God is the law unto
my being; God is the divine principle of my being; and therefore, that
law is a law unto my universe. But nothing outside of me,
whether of the past, the present, or the future, can act upon me as
law, even for good. Nothing existing in the realm of effect can
act upon me or upon my affairs as law since God is the only law-giver.
God, the divine Consciousness of my being, the very Soul of me, is the
only law unto my experience. Therefore, regardless of what the
world may call the law of cause and effect, the law of karma;
regardless of what the world may call the law of the stars and the
planets; none of that is law unto my being, either for good or evil,
since my good is derived from the infinity of my own being, which is
God. I lean not unto my own understanding, or on the
understanding of any man, but on the infinity of God, pouring Itself
through as individual being.
I know that this power of
love, which is God, is a law of attraction, and therefore, it can only
attract to me those whom I can love, and those who can love me; those
whom I can serve, and those who can serve me; since we are one in
Christ. Because God is a universal law of love, only love is
expressing through everyone on earth. Therefore, all men, all
men throughout the world, not only throughout this world, but
throughout what we call the world of those who have passed on, and the
world of those who have not yet been born - all those become a law of
love and of life unto my being."
think Joel Goldsmith has stretched our consciousness with these words.
Some may come away from his words with disbelief and others with
amazing relief in a higher realization of Truth. His words offer
us a way to freedom, true freedom in the Spirit ... the only freedom
that we will ever experience permanently. It is a way in which
to find freedom in an un-free world!
SO IT IS!
