Every person who has known dissatisfaction, incompleteness and frustration will some day learn that there is only one missing link in this entire chain of harmonious living. This is the practice of the presence of God–consciously, daily and hourly, abiding in some great spiritual truth of scripture and it makes no difference which scripture; Christian, Hebrew, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist or Moslem. From the introduction of Practicing the Presence by Joel Goldsmith
Goldsmith says that on the whole, the world has no knowledge of God as the living Power and Presence with Whom we are one. If it did, its anguish, wars, sin, and death would vanish. But, he says, individuals can learn the nature of God and how to contact God. He writes: “Christ buried in the tomb of the mind will not come forth and do works, but Christ risen in our consciousness, Christ raised from the tomb through meditation and communion – that is the miracle worker of the ages.” The Art of Meditation explains how this inner Presence, also called “the Christ,” can be realized and can operate in daily life.
