I had to do a bit of research before writing about this lesson, because the word “salvation” has quite a different meaning in the Course than in other traditions. If my only function is to become one of the saviors of the world, what does that mean, and how do I do it? Well, first of all, I don’t do it alone.

With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Voice for God, I learn how to let go of the illusions I have made that have kept me bound to the world-illusions of fear. That doesn’t mean ignoring these illusions or trying to cover up my feelings of fear; it means allowing my inner Teacher to correct my interpretation of what I perceive as fearful. That is not easy, but it is necessary if I am to accept my true purpose for being here.

“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.”

Blessings,

Mari

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
