Teachers of God!
What is Salvation? YIKES!! What in the world do I need to saved from? Really! Most of us don't think too highly of ourselves. Do we know that we're already okay? To quote ACIM: "Salvation is a promise, made by God, that you would find your way to Him at last. It cannot but be kept. It guarantees that time will have an end, and all the thoughts that have been born in time will end as well. God's Word is given every mind which thinks that it has separate thoughts, and will replace these thoughts of conflict with the Thought of peace." So how do we end conflict?
We're on Chapter 20: The vision of holiness. Are you a vision of holiness? What does that evoke? Come by and find out it's not what you thought it was.

Explanation of Images: We are walking around in these magnificent bodies. We observe that others have magnificent bodies as well. We often think that our value is placed here. It’s not. Our reality is in the relationships that are represented as bodies. The truth is we are all connected, we are are present in the mind of God as we are without exception. We’re caught. And we get to experience life in a body, which means sex, pain, growing up and growing old. That we share with others. We have more fulfillment when we share with others at all levels; sharing our minds and our learning devices that accompany them, i.e. our bodies. I don’t have secrets because I want to be known. I let go of guilt and shame so that I can share my body honestly with others.
