The Art of Spiritual Living
The 1977 Letters by Joel S. Goldsmith
Edited by Lorraine Sinkler
Here, once again, is a powerful book, comprised of the 1977 Letters, that explains the process that enables us to rise above the problems and worries of daily life. As we practice the principles given in this book we find that we are able to live our lives in increasing harmony and freedom.
Goldsmith describes the many ways that if followed, will lead to the kingdom of heaven within each of us. Among these are meditation — which is the actual contact with the spirit within — the discipline of body and mind, the purpose of prayer, forgiveness, the one Self and the impersonalization of good and evil. These are but a few of the clear instructions that are presented in this book.
Goldsmith states: “…the importance of abiding in God is clearly stated in scripture” and “Those who do not dwell in the ‘secret place of the most High’ are the thousand and the ten thousand who fall into all the snares and pitfalls of human experience. There is no way to avoid these snares except by dwelling in the ‘secret place’, by abiding in the Word and letting the Word abide in you.”
