Love Thy Neighbor

"No outer influence for good or evil can act upon us. We ourselves release our good."

Joel Goldsmith
Practicing the Presence
,
Chapter
Five

Our chapter of the month, “Love Thy Neighbor,” is another chapter in Joel’s list of “essential chapters” and it is evident why it is so important. It covers all aspects of relationship—meaning all aspects of the principle of Love.  This is a chapter that Joel instructed students to study, and to study, and to study until it became as familiar as one’s own name.  “What is love in the spiritual sense? What is the love which is of God?”  The answers that flow from these questions will always surprise and bless.

"Meditation is an invitation for God to speak to us or to make Himself known to us; it is not an attempt to reach God, since God is omnipresent. The Presence already is."
