Teachers of God,
We've constructed the entry, our Hall of Forgiveness. We enter into this room first before we enter any other room standing upon the foundation we've been laying all year. Here we put up the Pillars of Salvation. Salvation has been defined in this way in the Introduction: "Salvation is a promise, made by God, that you would find your way to Him at last." We will know our natures, we will experience our wholeness. It's a promise. And just a few paragraphs later: "Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice." And in this way it's clear perception of what is. It's the ability to appreciate what is actually going on. The promise is that we can have skilled lives of joyful service. If we let of what isn't there. We're saved. Saved for Glory.
These are the 10 Pillars of Salvation:
231. Father, I will but to remember you.
232. Be in my mind, Father, through the day.
233. I give my life to God to guide today.
234. Father, I am your Son again.
235. God in His Mercy wills that I be saved.
236. I rule my mind which I alone must rule.
237. Now I would be as God created me.
238. On my decision all salvation rests.
239. The glory of my father is my own.
240. Fear is not justified in any form.
I begin today and everyday knowing God is in my mind and I may recall the Presence of Peace at any time I choose. I choose to engage in this relationship as my primary source of Truth and direction. I have my life as a gift of Life itself. I give it back to source to use, grow, expand and spread the presence of Love to all Beings. I claim my place, necessary and essential, in the wholeness of the Love of God. And the Love of God reaches back to my embrace. I choose Peace. I choose Joy. I choose to experience my perfect happiness as an expression of the Wholeness of What Is. I am saved from hurting myself on what is not true. I choose not to engage or feed or give energy to what is not the eternal Presence of this embrace. I rest and find my renewal there. All God's Glory is bestowed upon me because I am the Heir to Bright Glory. Fear has no place and temps me not to stray from the place of my salvation.
