    August, 2017              

    Dear Friends,

        Our theme for the month of August came about naturally with the selected recordings
    and writings centering on the principles of spiritual supply and relationships. As I was
    working with the transcript from one of the recordings, I found myself posing the
    question, "Am I looking to human beings and expecting man to create a peaceful world,
    turning to corporeality for a sense of abundance and fulfilment, or looking to man's
    government for intelligent leadership? It says in Psalms, "A thousand shall fall at thy side,
    and ten thousand at thy right hand; ... ." When we realize that this does not refer to spiritual
    Man, individual Being, but to concepts, beliefs, we are reminded to remove our hope and
    dependence from the imaginary of the future and place it on the REAL of the NOW.

        "Those who have not spent considerable time practicing these principles will, for a while, forget,
    and thereby delay the experience of good. And this is what they will forget: we do not look to each
    other for anything, and that means husbands and wives, parents and children. The very earliest we
    can in the morning, we open ourselves to God’s grace, and consciously realize that we live not by
    might nor by power, but by the Spirit; we live not by bread alone, but by every Word that
    proceedeth out of the mouth of God; nor do we live by the favor of individuals, or the goodwill of
    individuals; nor do we live by our place or position in life - we live by the grace of God.                   
         Now if we are to live in the mystical consciousness, we must abide in this: that our expectancy
    is always and only from the spiritual source that is within us, the spiritual life, the spiritual spring,
   the spiritual waters, bread, meat, wine, water. We must abide in this truth that '
I have meat the
  world knows not of
,' and then be careful that we are not looking to a person, a thing, an
  organization, a relationship, for it."

                               - Joel, "The Healing Principles ," from the 1961 Mission Inn Closed Class, #0405B

        On the First Sunday, August 6th, we are meeting at THE INN OF CHICAGO, and will
    begin the day with a recording that is an excellent message on spiritual supply, and was
    part of the basis for Chapter 8, "Invisible Life Fulfills Itself Tangibly and Visibly," from
    Joel's CONSCIOUSNESS IS WHAT I AM.
       Then, following my short talk, "The WORD Is Your Being/World," we will continue
    with the new class by Margaret Ponga, her 2017 Nashville Class, Session 2,
    "Acknowledge God - Let It Flow."
           Our recording broadcasts for August will continue on the Second Tuesday, August
    8th, when we will hear Virginia Stephenson's 1994 Asilomar Class, Session #7,
    "Surrender - Listen - Imbue," which was the basis for her August Monthly Lesson of
    2011. This recording is a continuation of last month's theme, "spiritual power does not
    contend with nothingness."
      The Third Sunday broadcast will be moved to the Forth Sunday, August 27th, and we
    will be hearing a recording which was the basis for Chapter 8 in Joel's THE JOURNEY
    BACK to the FATHER'S HOUSE, Recording (#0405B) of the 1961 Mission Inn Closed
    Class, "The Healing Principles (Special Lesson on Healing Work."
      The Forth Tuesday meeting will take place on the Fifth Tuesday,  August 29th when we
    will be continuing the "New Horizon Series" of recordings with "The Word and Words,"
    from The 1954 Portland Practitioner Class. This recording once again corresponds to
    Chapter 7 in AWAKENING MYSTICAL CONSCIOUSNESS, and is #0095B in the IW
    Catalog.
           And available for listening at your leisure, we will be continuing with Luella's 1992
    Green Bay Closed Class, Session 4, "Spiritual Identity As Relationships." In addition to the
    audio file,  a transcript is available . (Special thanks to Lori B. and Linda F!)

    Luella's workbooks, DEVELOPING SPIRITUAL CONSCIOUSNESS Vols. I and II, continue to be
    popular with students as clear, concise explorations of the principles of spiritual living
    and healing. Along with the newer paper edition of both volumes,
    brand new eBook versions (for all eReaders) of both Volumes, as well as
    Luella's TREASURE HUNT, are now available for purchase on Amazon.com.  Please click

    Our Weekly Book Study Meetings for 2017, on Thursday evenings at 7:30 PM CST, will
    be continuing on August 3rd. We will be working with Chapter 8 from our book, Joel's
    THE JOURNEY BACK to the FATHER'S HOUSE, which was originally published as THE
    INFINITE WAY LETTERS OF 1979. Registration for participation in this meeting is now
    closed. To register for next year's meetings, please contact me at:bob_harper@sbcglobal.net, or
