The Valor Foundation

2021 Study Guide

Joel Goldsmith states very clearly that knowing the letter of truth is not sufficient, we have to progress towards being taught by the spirit or Christ within us, then our consciousness is changed. He says "Nothing exists for us except what we become conscious of or aware of. Therefore, if we would bring the grace of God into our experience, we must consciously open our consciousness to the truth that 'I and the Father are one.'"

The trustees of the Valor Foundation have chosen the Infinite Way Letters of 1979, The Journey Back to the Father's House, for the 2021 Study Guide. This is the ninth 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.

Joel says "We turn to the spiritual life to be reunited with our source, to live once again in 'the secret place of the most High' to abide in the Word and let the Word abide in us." (The 1979 Letters)
