Man is always seeking a power, a power to overcome something or destroy something; and therefore he is not living in the awareness of God, because in the realization of the presence of God there is no need to overcome, to destroy, or to do anything.

— Joel S. Goldsmith

The most vibrant Joel S. Goldsmith quotes that are glad to read

God must become an activity in our consciousness.


I awaken in the morning with confidence, rejoicing in whatever work is given to me to do. Whatever that work is, I do it, not in order to earn a living or in a sense of performing an onerous duty; but, with joy and gladness, I let it unfold as the activity of God's expression through me.


Prayer is the Word of God which comes to you when you are silent enough, still enough, expectant enough to receive it.


Release from fear, worry, and doubt leaves us free to function normally, healthfully, and confidently.


God is life; and in that life which is God there are no years. ... The human sense of life is not your real life.


You govern your surroundings by the nature of what is taking place in your consciousness.


The Infinite Way is not a message, it is an experience.


Life is not at the mercy of matter.


Every skill, every talent, every capacity, and every ability of the mind are really the Soul-action made visibly tangible.
