The Valor Foundation

2016 Study Guide

Joel Goldsmith says, "In the very moment that we have decided not to judge by appearances, we have set something within us in the direction of the development of the Soul-faculty of spiritual discernment. We have established an agreement within ourselves that what we see, hear, taste, touch and smell has nothing to do with a person as he is, and we have agreed within ourselves that we cannot judge him by any of the human standards of the five physical senses. Therefore we must wait on God; must wait for spiritual discernment to reveal him to us as he is." (The 1974 Letters)

The trustees of the Valor Foundation have chosen the Infinite Way Letters of 1974, Spiritual Discernment: The Healing Consciousness, for the 2016 Study Guide. This is the fourth 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 Foundation also provides suggestions for using Lorraine's class work with each month's study.
