2018 Reprint of 1956 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. Reprint of the 1956 British edition, which preceded the 1958 U.S. edition. Practicing the Presence is one of the four foundational books among Joel Goldsmith’s Infinite Way writings. Goldsmith recommended that new students begin with this book, together with Living the Infinite Way. Practicing the Presence is a celebrated guide to the awareness of the divine and transcendental in our daily lives. Goldsmith writes that it was during one of his periods of contemplation that the words came to him, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee.” This surprised him, because at that time he was little acquainted with the Bible and only occasionally went to church. But through the study of Scripture and the practice of its teachings, Goldsmith realized that a Presence was with him, counseling, sustaining, and leading him into greater spiritual awareness. Following that realization, he traveled throughout the world, teaching others to know this Presence.
