Recording #237-2, a Joel Goldsmith class from the 1958 Manchester Closed Class, Tape 3, side 2, in which Joel Goldsmith explains the origin of The Real Teacher and The Seven Steps.
“The Real Teacher and the Seven Steps” message is in the “not to be missed” category. Compiled of two essays, the first part reveals that the real Teacher is not a person, and a real teaching does not come from the human mind. “Christ is that state of consciousness which is man’s Teacher.” Only with that realization may a seeker of truth come into a higher way of life. In the second essay, “The Seven Steps,” the author lays out, and then elucidates, seven spiritual principles. They are presented in a way that is conducive to consistent study—taking each principle one by one or as a whole. This is a volume of interest to a new student or to a long-time seeker of truth.
