About the Author

JOEL S. GOLDSMITH (1892-1964), a monumental teacher of practical mysticism, devoted most of his life to the discovery and teaching of spiritual principles which he founded and called The Infinite Way. After the publication of his seminal book, The Infinite Way, in 1947, Joel traveled throughout the world as a teacher and a healer. Although Goldsmith's message was neither organized nor advertised, students of The Infinite Way increased in numbers. Today, a worldwide student body exists which continues to practice and preserve his work. More than thirty books have been compiled from his tape-recorded lectures and classwork including "The Infinite Way," "Practicing the Presence" and "The Art of Meditation." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I fell in love with this book early on in my quest for metaphysical ideas. In fact, I own two copies. Perhaps it's because the author took me on a journey in Spirit, showing me my self-completeness in God, where I could dwell in the secret place of the most High and be fed with the Bread of Life. Certainly in your life there comes a time when you are asked (or sense the need) to leave your nets--your customary course of events, job or occupation, for something higher. There comes through a study of this book a realization that everything you need to bring happiness and meaning to life will be supplied as you leave the past behind and venture into new territory. "The scales of life can be balanced only in infinite terms; and when there is an awareness of the Infinite, the present, the past, and the future all merge into one unfolding Reality." Inspiring reading!

I am a New Thought teacher and I just finished a very powerful 9-week class based on this book. I have read it 3 times already and plan to start a 4th soon. The people in my class (ranging from new to these ideas to another seasoned teacher of New Thought) were all very empowered and affected by this book.

Be aware that this book was originally written in the 60's, so the language is a little sexist and old-fashioned. But that doesn't take away from the power of the Truth it teaches. If you use even a few of the ideas in your everyday life, things WILL change for the better.

I have been studying Universal Truth for 30 years and this particular book has done more for me in a shorter time than the the majority of other books I have read. Caveat: You must use the ideas, not just read about them, for them to be a powerful tool for change!

I highly recommend this work for anyone who is seriously playful about BEING the Presence of Love and light in the world.

Rev. Grace

Honestly, if I were left with no other books on the planet but those of Joel S. Goldsmith, I would be in Heaven. "Leave Your Nets" is a magnificent guide to give up all external dependency and placing all trust on the Most High of our very own Divine Being - The Mystical I. It is profound, enlightening, and glorious! I highly recommend it.

Although Joel Goldsmith has been dead many years, his writings live on & continue to help people understand their purpose here on earth. Truth is true yesterday,today & tomorrow...it will never change & once you understand what truth is, you will never go back to being the same person you once were. Joel Goldsmith will bring you to this point if you read this book or anyone of his other books. He does not teach any type of religion..he goes beyond specific teachings & into a world of KNOWING. Go there & peace will be with you forever.
