Salvation is awakening from the dream of separation, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the recognition that we share an interest in peace and happiness with all our brothers and sisters, and that this shared interest reflects the truth that there is only one will in Creation. Thus, salvation is the process by which our seemingly separate will is brought into alignment with God’s Will. Salvation is natural and easy – there is literally nothing to do. But our resistance and opposition are intense, and the apparent blocks they create can seem imposing indeed. Therefore, salvation is learned in time – it is perceived first as an experience of liberation from the body in a world and then as a mind that is opening up to accept its fullness as an extension of God in Creation. This takes both understanding and application. We learn that we are separate and that there is another way. Then we learn that by serving our brothers and sisters, we bring that way forth for all life. And finally, we rest in the quiet joy and peace of knowing that we need to do nothing other than accept God’s Will, which is our will, and from which we cannot be separate in any way. Salvation is joyful and the path towards it happy (see also atonement).
