Living the Infinite Way is one of the four foundational books of the Infinite Way teachings. Joel Goldsmith recommended that new students begin with this book, together with Practicing the Presence. In Living the Infinite Way, Goldsmith awakens the reader to the possibility that the presence of God is within every individual, and that one can live by that Presence and enjoy a more harmonious, loving, and abundant life.
The Heart of Mysticism is a collection of the monthly Letters Joel Goldsmith sent to students from 1955 through 1959. Originally published as individual volumes for each year, this collective edition is the most comprehensive anthology of Joel’s work in a single book and covers a vast range of topics. Each letter is a lesson in spiritual living and provides instruction in specific spiritual principles that can be applied in daily experience. Goldsmith considered his monthly letters to be a vital link with his students, in which he could communicate the deepest experiences that came during his ongoing class work. He once said, “There is nothing more precious in our entire library than the Infinite Way Letters.”
The 1954 Infinite Way Letters is the first series of regular monthly letters that Joel Goldsmith sent to Infinite Way students in fourteen countries around the world. These Letters of 1954 reflect the experiences that brought The Infinite Way into its fullness as a universal message. Today they continue to provide inspiration for anyone who is seeking a life of freedom and harmony, without limitation. Each letter is a lesson in spiritual living and provides instruction in specific spiritual principles that can be applied in daily experience.
Collected Essays is an anthology of Joel Goldsmith’s smaller works and booklets that weave the Infinite Way principles into a variety of timely topics. It gives the reader a broad sampling of Goldsmith’s spiritual wisdom. The book includes these titles: “Supply,” “Metaphysical Healing,” “Meditation,” “Prayer,” “Business,” “Salesmanship,” “Ye Are the Light,” “The Real Teacher,” “The Seven Steps,” “Truth for Business and Professional People,” “Secret of the 23rd Psalm,” “Love,” “Gratitude,” “I Am the Vine,” “Deep Silence of My Peace,” “Fourth Dimension of Life,” “Contemplative Meditation with Scripture,” “Easter of Our Lives,” and “A Lesson to Sam.”
Jesus said, “It is written that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God,” and he told us to “abide in the word and let the word abide in you.” What is this “word” and what does it mean to “abide” in it? This is the key question that Joel Goldsmith answers in Living by the Word. Throughout the book, Goldsmith considers specific Scriptural passages and takes the reader far beyond their literal sense to unveil their inner spiritual meaning. He gives thorough and practical instruction about how to work with Bible passages to discern their depth and live by them. “‘When we study and search the scriptures,” Goldsmith says, “we are fed as never before; we are guided, directed, and protected as never before; but always in direct proportion as we make these passages of scripture our daily bread.” Throughout all the Infinite Way writings, Goldsmith asserts that all discord in life is the result of man’s sense of separation from God, and that coming into the realization that “I and the Father are one” is the liberating influence. In Living by the Word, he shows the reader how Scripture can play an important role in that journey back to our true Self.

Joel Goldsmith has written many books about the principles that constitute the message of the Infinite Way. In The Art of Spiritual Living, he focuses on how we can bring those principles into every phase of life – health, supply, business, home, relationships – and experience their transforming influence. “Being able to live the spiritual life,” he says, is dependent upon your knowing, first of all, that God is your selfhood and the selfhood of everyone you meet, and then knowing that the Father within you knows your need. You must know that it is His good pleasure to give you the kingdom, and you can rest and relax in that assurance. When you have that assurance, you are really living the spiritual life.”
Now considered a spiritual classic, The Infinite Way was Joel Goldsmith’s first book. After its publication, Joel said that he was no longer a man with a message, but a message with a man. Joel introduces The Infinite Way by saying, "In this small volume I have written the spiritual truth as I have gleaned it through over thirty years of study of the major religions and philosophies of all ages... Be assured inner peace will come as one turns to the spiritual consciousness of life, and an outer calm will follow in one's human affairs. The outer world will conform to the inner awareness of Truth. The authority for all of this revelation will be you, as you yourself experience this change within and without." The Infinite Way is filled with the spiritual ideas and principles that are the foundation of The Infinite Way message. Goldsmith inspires, and possibly surprises, the reader with statements such as “Immortality is attained in proportion as personal sense is overcome ... and that can be achieved here and now;” “Spiritual illumination enables us to discern the spiritual reality where the human concept appears to be;” and “To many, the word Christ persists as a more or less mysterious term, rarely if ever experienced by them. This we must change if we are to benefit by the revelation of a divine Presence of Power within us. Jesus told his disciples that they too are the Light of the world.” In this book, Goldsmith gives the reader the richness of the spiritual principles that constitute the message of The Infinite Way.
