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 InfiniteWay," "Practicing the Presence" and "The Art of Meditation." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

After only reading a few short paragraphs I knew that I had been Divinely Guided to read "Awakening Mystical Consciousness." Goldsmith is very clear and teaches the "way" to begin to discover and unfold the consciousness of the mystic in all of us. He takes the reader through the steps to a change in consciousness and begins his lesson in the "Word" versus the Truth, which so many in the metaphysical community struggle with. This book can be read within a few short hours, but the study of it may take years.
The author teaches us that in order to heal anyone we shouldn't think of the person or problem to be healed, but just sit and focus on all the attributes of God we can think of, then take a listening attitude. Then we will get a sign that healing has occurred, for example, a feeling of peace or a sense of inner release. Though we may have to practice for some time until we are able to reach the point where we get a sign, and healing occurs.
There is only one power - the power of the spirit. All disease and lack are in essence non-existent, a nothingness. When you see a mirage in the desert, you just get into your car and drive through it, since you know it doesn't exist This is the way you must heal disease or lack - just continue as though they don't exist - which they don't.
One of Goldsmith's basic messages is that as long as we believe in the two powers, good and evil, we will have periods of good and periods of evil. Disease is healed by our lifting our consciousness up to the Divine and praying "Thy will be done in me, not mine."
In my opinion, this is an essential book. Reading a few pages of this book (or probably any book by this author) will help you integrate more and more these basic teachings.
A must read for any on a spiritual path. If you are a Christian searching for deeper meaning of the scripture, this is the book for you. Mr. Goldsmith delves into the meat of the Word without twisting the context. A straightforward and enlightening new way to apply the Word of God. My new favorite book.
