GOLDSMITH Joel 
Consciousness Unfolding
cover image of Consciousness Unfolding, for sale in New Zealand

Joel Goldsmith takes the reader deep into the principles of The Infinite Way, "the unfolding of consciousness. Our premise is that God, divine Consciousness, is unfolding, revealing, disclosing, and manifesting Itself as your individual being and as mine."
Goldsmith gives the foundation required for understanding how meditation and contemplation of scriptural truth help one come to the realisation that God is truly unfolding, revealing, and disclosing Itself as your individual being, and that you can trust that every issue of life - health, wealth, home, business, profession and relationships - will flow forth harmoniously.
