Circle of Christhood - What's New

www.infiniteway.com [cached]

However, the books edited by Lorraine Sinkler are very different from the originals with many, many changes. Acropolis claimed to have released the originals, unedited. However, as I began to check, I found many changes to punctuation and wording, let alone style.  My students became very sensitive to these and I wanted to give them Joel's original words as he first spoke them in his classes.

It went to the thousands of students and their teachers around the world Letter to Norman Stachan (at the time in charge of the work in New Zealand) - April 10, 1964 This letter was sent to Joel's teachers and practitioners and submitted into the public record in 1984 as evidence in the lawsuit Lorraine Sinkler brought against Emma Goldsmith.

While of course I know that this would likewise be true if Lorraine's were taped, but the difficulty is that once one individual is permitted to tape an Infinite Way message, there will be no way of stopping the next dozen, and then, of course, what would become of the message is the same that has happened to Christianity, to Buddhism, to Taoism, and to all teachings where others have advanced their particular concepts of the Master's revelations.

Lorraine Sinkler : Brief Background

Lorraine came to The Infinite Way around 1949. She was a school principal, well respected and responsible. She never married as far as we know, lived with her sister, Valborg.  Valborg was an English major and helped Lorraine with much of the editing.
Lorraine was devoted to Joel and his work.
...
Consider:  Joel loved the Christhood of Lorraine, saw it unfold and develop, saw her devotion and trusted her completely.  Joel may have had temper outbursts over editing, but surely many decisions were simply following the publishers wishes (much more strict grammatically then than now).
...
Joel thought highly of Lorraine until his final months.
...
Why then, did Joel write this to Lorraine?
...
Joel planned to dismiss Lorraine after the trip to Europe.
...
We know that Joel argued with Lorraine about only changing the punctuation and spelling of his transcripts when preparing them for publication.
...
Lorraine Sinkler Changed The Infinite Way Joel Taught
...
As you read the sections below, you will come to see that Lorraine, with the help of her sister and her mentored students, has either deliberately or negligently changed the message in the ways noted. (We know this is not personal, it was not her fault, this is Error, operating to veil the message, and so we know Lorraine to be the Christ, in spite of the human actions.)
...
Teachers mentored by Lorraine have been taught to teach classes selling their own recorded lectures with some of Joel's books offered on the side. No Joel tapes are used.
...
I later phoned Lorraine again to ask if I could share her letter with those who had been part of my work for a long time. She replied, "I would be happy to have you share my letter with anyone."
...
Lorraine's taped comments about Horizons
(See more in section on Freedom.)
Here are excerpts from Lorraine Sinkler's tapes regarding the proposed book, Horizons in Consciousness. It was intended to be a record of the correspondence between Lorraine and Joel over fifteen years.
...
Because students loyal to Lorraine have been taught that the Infinite Way is not Joel's unfoldment, his "Spiritual Journey," but rather a label for a state of consciousness, an impression is planted that all students in the Infinite Way are of equal consciousness.
...
Please note that Lorraine reads the same letters to several classes, and continues to emphasize how this did not affect her.
...
During these tapes Lorraine read parts of the book to the audience. Both the audience and the tape owner paid for this information, thus laws were ignored. The passages here are brought to you free as a part of our historical study of The Infinite Way.
From A Court Document:
"On February 3, 1967, Joel's widow, Emma and Sinkler entered into a written agreement for Sinkler's work on the monthly Letter.
...
Emma was to pay Sinkler for her services.
...
Since Joel's death, Sinkler has conducted classes on The Infinite Way, using Joel's copyrighted tapes and writings.
...
Until 1978, Sinkler sold Joel's tapes, which she obtained from the offices of The Infinite Way. In 1978, she began selling her own tapes of her lectures and The Infinite Way classes.
In 1973 a book written by Sinkler, The Spiritual Journey of Joel S. Goldsmith, was published.
...
The book included some of Joel's letters to Sinkler.
...
In 1981 Sinkler completed a second book, Horizons in Consciousness, a large part of which consisted of correspondence between her and Joel.
...

I find, Lorraine, on the third reading as I said on the first reading that it is all Lorraine and very little Joel Goldsmith.

I find, Lorraine, on the third reading, as I said upon the first reading that it is all Lorraine and very little Joel S. Goldsmith.
...
In spite of the law saying that the book could not exist, Lorraine made it happen.
...
Reading the above transcript carefully, we see that Lorraine takes us from the lesson of no organization, which we all know was a cornerstone of Joel's teaching, to the Infinite Way being a collective consciousness (as opposed to Joel's consciousness) which operates with spiritual law. Then we are told about the civil law which we must legally follow. Yet, there is an added reminder that spiritual law has nothing to do with this world. Do you see how this implies that we do not have to follow civil law?
It is also interesting to see how right after the explanation about how the publishing of a letter is determined by the author, Lorraine reads letters from Emma and Geri.
...
The law is very clear and Lorraine seemed to understand it.
...
I have personal experience reading letters from Joel to Lorraine asking only for punctuation and spelling corrections.
