The Valor Foundation

2015 Study Guide

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.  Psalm 127:1

The trustees of the Valor Foundation have chosen the Infinite Way Letters of 1973, Seek Ye First, for the 2015 Study Guide. This is the third of the 11 book series based upon The 1971-1981 Infinite Way Letters by Joel S. Goldsmith. They are fine-quality soft cover books which include Scriptural References and Notes, as well as a listing of the tape recorded classes corresponding to each chapter of the book. In this way students can work with the audio of the classes along with each monthly letter. The Valor Website also provides suggestions for using Lorraine's class work with each month's study.

""'Follow me': leave all your earthly desires, wishes, hopes, and seek the illumined mind, and all these things will be added unto you. So it has been proved ... the Master has promised that if you are obedient [that is, to seek first the Kingdom of God] the 'things' are added unto you after you have attained illumination. Furthermore, from the experience of every illumined soul of whom there is any written record, you will discover that that person not only was supplied with health, abundance, and twelve baskets full to share, including happiness, peace, and security, but he was enabled to share these with all those who were ready to follow the same path." (The 1973 Letters)
