The Valor Foundation

2019 Study Guide

"Joel Goldsmith describes the many ways that if followed, will lead to the kingdom of heaven within each of us. Among these are meditation -- which is the actual contact with the spirit within -- the discipline of body and mind, the purpose of prayer, forgiveness, the one Self and the impersonalization of good and evil. These are but a few of the clear instructions that are presented in this book." (The 1977 Letters)

The trustees of the Valor Foundation have chosen the Infinite Way Letters of 1977, The Art of Spiritual Living, for the 2019 Study Guide. This is the seventh of the eleven book series made up of The 1971-1981 Infinite Way Letters, prepared and edited by Lorraine Sinkler, from Joel S. Goldsmith's tape recorded classwork. They are fine-quality soft cover books which include Scriptural References and Notes, as well as a listing of the recorded classes corresponding to each chapter of the book. In this way students can work with the cassettes or CDs along with each monthly letter. The Valor Website also provides suggestions for using Lorraine's class work with each month's study.

"God, Spirit, cannot be added to a material consciousness. For this reason, the Master made it clear that spiritual living and spiritual harmony can be brought into our experience only by dying to our human selfhood and being reborn into spiritual consciousness." (The 1977 Letters)
