In this well-loved essay, Joel Goldsmith explores secrets revealed in the 15th Chapter of John: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” Goldsmith illuminates the universal principle that there is just One Being expressing as the many. Most live as if they were separate from that One, and so miss the infinite bounty that is their inheritance. The author expands on the mystical teaching in John, that no man or woman is separate and apart from the vine of their true being, the Kingdom within. He writes, “there is only one subject on which you need to be enlightened: What is the nature of God?” It is this inward realization of “I am connected to the vine” that transforms a limited outer life into one of abundance and service.
