For those of you working to help with the storms and earthquakes, please Google "weaponized weather" and educate yourself on this topic. It will help with your meditations. I will be covering this is the meditation group.
Thank you for your interest in what happens to "old" students of Joel's, those who move on and away from The Infinite Way.
I, for one, continue my meditations, my studies and writing. I am doing a survey of meditators and researching mindfulness meditation. I delight in the fact that my unfoldment really came before and independent of Joel's teachings, although I learned much from him.
I have always been interested in helping others, my original interest was to be a doctor. I became a school teacher instead. Later, I taught and did healing practitioner work in my career in The Infinite Way. Joel taught that we should not be "do gooders." Rather do world work. I did lots of world work.
Now, I am a "do gooder" active in helping to address the problem of sexual abuse on college campuses. I am helping in a way that I can given my circumstances and associations. I was asked and so I respond. It is much more gratifying than the disassociation techniques taught by Joel. We still must LIVE in the world. We have chosen to incarnate and that means we live in human bodies, with other humans, in the way that humans live.
Some call the term "householder", those who are not monks or ascetics. Joel urged us to be "householders" in the world working in jobs and with families. This means we have to behave a certain way and it is very "crazy making" to have to constantly ignore worldly things we need to face for family and work.
I wish you all well in your journey and know that you will find the truth for you, with or without Joel.
So nice to have you come visit to find out more truth about The Infinite Way. Many of you come looking for practitioners. I am sorry that I have none to recommend. I had a very nice, successful practice and am happy to help anyone who needs it, as are a few of my students who were also IW practitioners. Now, however, they only work with people who are ok with us not being followers of the Infinite Way. We use many of the principles and have the same level of success, but it would not be honest of us to not share that we are no longer part of The Infinite Way philosophy. Be sure that you check references for anyone you are referred to for there are no requirements to be called "an Infinite Way practitioner." The practitioner should be a meditator and one that can explain all the principles to you. Check them out and be honest with yourself. Many come to a practitioner because they don't want to spend money on doctors. This is considered a "free" service. If this is your only motivation, it is a poor one.
It is very important that the public understand this information so that future students are not given wrong impressions and made to think that the business of The Infinite Way™ carries a spiritual authority. Each student must find their own confirmation of truth with factual research, study and meditation.
