Hello, this is Bertus.

I wish you welcome to this homepage of The Infinite Way Holland.


......................................................What Is The Infinite Way? *)............................................................................................................

(from the booklet "The Mountain Path") :

"The message of The Infinite Way is not an organized activity. It is not a religious teaching in the sense of church religion or organized religion or activity.  The message of The Infinite Way is a presentation of the mystical life - that is, a way lived through conscious union with God.  And it is presented that way in the writings, the tape recording, and in our classwork for the benefit of all who are ready for the experience.The Infinite Way does not add to any organizational activity, nor does it take from such activity since The Infinite Way does not invite anyone to leave their present religious home for any purpose.Those who do, do so only because they have reached a stage, or believe they have reached a stage, in consciousness where they can live completely in the realization of God.It makes no demand upon any person. It merely presents to them the principle of living in attunement with their Source. What an individual does with this is strictly their business." -

Joel Goldsmith

For breaking down a possible language-barrier: translat

In the 1958 Holland Class Joel did express his appreciation for those who dedicate themselves to break down the languagebarrier.

Each time  . . . .[that I come here] . . .  it is a great pleasure because so many here have been making a very serious effort to break down the barrier of language to understand this message of The Infinite Way.  It is not an easy message to understand even if English were your native language. We have many in the U.S. , Canada and England who find it very very difficult to grasp the meaning of this message. And, breaking this barrier of the language may be even more difficult except for one thing.  That if you can catch the simplicity of the message, then language is no barrier and even a very very simple slight knowledge of the language will give you the entire secret. The message is difficult not because of being complex, it is difficult because of its simplicity. That is what makes the entire message of The Infinite Way difficult. It is its very simplicity.

Listen to Joel himself.




Dear Friend,

"Sometimes the question is asked of  me, why it is that “Dear Friend” is such an important part of my life. My letters start that way – even the Monthly Letters. Always, “Dear Friend”.

And the reason I tell you this is that God is to me a friend. God is to ME.

And when I say “|Dear Friend” to you, I am recognizing my Father in you. When I write “Dear Friend” it is this presence within me to whom I am speaking and it is this presence, this friend within me, who is speaking through me – to you"

From a lecture Joel gave to his students in 1960 on "Meditation on God's Presence"

Allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is Bertus Rabe.

Since I am Dutch, English is not my native language. I apologize for any mistakes against your grammar, etc. It may be that you would say certain phrases in a different way, but what follows is only an attempt - with all my my heart - to try to help and guide you further.

If necessary you may contact me through e-mail, viz:

With the written, personal permission of the late Emma A. Goldsmitih (widow of the late Joel S. Goldsmith) I - since 1978 - have been occupying myself with translating the writings of the late mystic JOEL S. GOLDSMITH and distributing them among the Dutch students. In view of the rather small group, this is being done on a non-profit, non-commercial basis.


During 1955 thru 1959 Joel has given various classes in Holland. They are a PERSONAL GIFT by Joel for gratitude that my predecessor-translator - the late Heloise van Brakel-May - was prepared to translate into Dutch the Monthly Letters and so breaking down the language-barrier.

I restrict myself in giving you hereunder for you important data. You must contact the people mentioned hereunder yourself for obtaining more information c.q. ordering books, audiocassettes, etc.





For Joel's lifestory, work in Christian Science, "conversion" to The Infinite Way", the development of The Infinite Way, etc. please read Lorraine Sinkler's book: "The Spiritual Journey of Joel S. Goldsmith"

This time you will notice another book being released “A Parenthesis in Eternity”. This really tells you the entire story of my Spiritual life. Not by telling you anything about Joel, because Joel does not seem to count in that regard. What does count is: what is revealed from within, and that entire unfoldment is given to us in that book.

The Infinite Way a unique teaching and is totally on its own with unique principles. For more info clic on unique . It is a Western Mystical Teaching that has no connections with other teachings and is being recognised by friend and foe that it is the restatement of the Great Message that has come down to us over the ages through the Great Masters of all times. This Great Message is being given in this age, in these words and presentation and by this name (the infinite Way) by Joel Goldsmith.

To those are new to this message certain statements may be "strange", "unintelligible", "illogical" and like. Bertus wishes all of you to assure that NOTHING in The Infinite Way is "strange" or "unintelligible" or "illogical" and like.

When you feel that some statements by Joel may occur to you as "strange" or "unintel ligible" , then turn within yourselves and go into prayer and meditation and pray to God or the Father (or by what name you wish to call HIM): " Father, how must I understand this" "What is meant by this", "What is the meaning behind this statement", and like.

If practiced faithfully along these lines you will discover that light on what you read will be given to you from within and that you will going to better "understand" it (it really is not "understanding", it is that your consciousness opens itself more and more to the Truth and the Spirit of God and tht results in your better "understanding").


Some may think that The Infinite Way is `old-fashioned,  obsolete".  Nothing could be further from the truth. It is true that Joel lived up to 1964 and that he used at that time actual situations...but it will be clear that the situations and names might be changed but .. the PRINCIPLES  are stillthe same, still vivid  and applicable. Truth never will become obsolete and the vehicle it is It arrives in may be a “classic,” but Truth will always be loved and appreciated by those who have “eyes that see,” and “ears that hear.”  


There may be people exploring "differences" between The Infinite Way and their own teaching. Click on differgb

We - in The Infinite Way - do NOT discuss, do NOT compare with other teachings, ONLY use The Infinite Way principles. So should you when following this teaching.


The Infinite Way is a mystical teaching. What is mysticism?

The true meaning of mysticism is any philosophy or religion that teaches oneness with God. Mysticism reveals the possibility of receiving impartations or guidance directly from God, of communing with God, of being consciously at-one with God, and receiving good from God without any intermediary. And so the teaching of The Infinite Way is a mystical one, because, above all things, its purpose is to achieve oneness with God. *)

*) from the book "Conscious Union With God"chapter XIII "Mysticism")

The Infinite Way Message is difficult:

The message is difficult not because of being complex. It is difficult because of its simplicity That is what makes the entire message of The Infinite Way difficult.

Joel had the unique capacity to say the deepest Spiritual Truths in the simplest words. Do not be fooled by that!! The Infinite Way is a profound deep Spiritual, Mystical teaching. Never underestimate that!! For more info clic on dificult .


Joel teaches us how we should pray.


There is also a page specially for our YOUNGSTERS. Please visit: young

What I did write in the website for the youngsters does also apply on all of you.


The Infinite Way is pure mysticism. See: mysticis


The BASIS of The Infinite Way is:


The entire basis of the Infinite Way teaching is that there is not God and. There is not God and health. Or God and strength, or God and immortality or God  and activity or God and supply . The is only God manifesting as.

There is not hypnotism and a disease. There is not hypnotism and lack or limitation. There is not hypnotism and sin and death. There is only hypnotism appearing as these pictures. You can't get rid of the sin, disease, or death separate and apart from the hypnotism. when you have gotten rid of the hypnotism you have gotten rid of all the various forms. And the way to get rid of hypnotism is to understand hypnotism, not as thing, but as no thing, no power, no presence.

Here you have the secret of living. When you observe life as it appears to be... you understand immediately that this is the product of hypnotism, of suggestion, of human appearances.. Through your spiritual sense...however you discern that right where this material or physical  sense seems to be, is the spiritual, eternal and immortal creation.

A "by-product" of our studies is "healing". Is The Infinite Way a substitute of materia medica? Should one abandon medicine when studying The Infinite Way? Etc.Etc. In order to clarify these matters Bertus refers you to: healing


The Infinite Way is an individual study, a teaching of silence, turning within and NO discussions. See: nodiscus


"If there is a God why is there so much evil, mess in the world?" In an attempt to bring you Light on this subject, please study and practice: room


Joel often uses the Hawaiian word "aloha".

Click on alohaeng for an explanation of that word.


There are people who study different teachings at the same time. Joel always was fiercely opposed to that stating that such is not good for your Spiritual development and can easily tend to confusion. Read what Joel said about it.
