Joel Goldsmith was an awakened teacher who lived until 1964.....he was a healer and a mystic. This is one of the thirty-some books that have been published from his teachings which came to be called, "The Infinite Way". This is a non-denominational teaching. Not religion. The essence of the teaching is that the Divine is within us, and J. Goldsmith encourages us to make this inner contact. "A Parenthesis in Eternity" is one of the most powerful books i have ever read.
