The Meaning of Salvation

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What does it mean to be “saved” and how does one ask for it?

Answer: Salvation is the old giving way to the New because we no longer want what we once were. In that quiet passing comes that Self which was always there before. The “first becomes the last, and the last the first.” Every single longing, every prayer a person ever utters and reaches for, always has to do with Something within: Something somehow felt to be just beyond reach, and if only they could get through that door and stand there, all would be well. Christ said, “Knock and it shall be opened to you.” This special knocking has to do with sincerely saying, “Can you help me?” Surrender the self at each door on the Way, and then the door opens. That’s the spiritual path; that’s salvation. It’s within you. And you must make the journey. But to make the journey you have to be on the Way; you must understand the request that begins it. Give up in the right way. Learning to surrender yourself begins with learning to see the need to surrender yourself. The rest takes care of itself. This will happen to you, for you, if you’ll persist sincerely with your wish for a New Life.
