It is an institution establishing the inspiring ideals which can be grasped by the peoples of the civilization; a perpetuating symbolism for fostering and gratifying the emotions of honor and dignity, righteousness and morality, eternal understandings and the everlasting principles of freedom.
Every appealing movement in social culture or religious advancement has developed a ritual, a symbolic ceremonial.
At Salvington, we hold honorable the God ascent into light and life. We offer students the opportunity to advance themselves as uniquely qualified personalities. The principles of Salvington University foster a deep and conscious growth, the understandings to build a stronger knowledge of Selfhood and its uniquely held place in the universes. Salvington continues to grip the hearts and minds of its students and devotees by preserving the sentiments of truthfulness and equality, and students are encouraged to find their solutions through the directly personal intimacy with the living God who dwells within. This brings the great satisfied emotions of living rightly and in accordance with Objectivity and Truth - Absolute Truth and the Way to Life more abundant.
Salvington grows the personality mind into personality soul currents which thrive upon discovering the God who motivates and animates all things. The curriculum of Salvington in terms of moral standards and spiritual ideals have no adequate symbolism but through demonstrated experience — we hold as self-evident at Salvington a collegial culture of mutual support.
Our educational fellowship and high religious culture cannot be manufactured; it must grow and mature itself through the deeply encountered learnings of our students who strive to encompass a life built upon truth and justice, love and compassion. And those of no two groups will be identical unless their rituals foster truth and awareness, and are arbitrarily standardized by the authority of personal religious revelation and experience.
The Salvington culture requires an upstanding evaluation by each student, and whereas the early Christian culture was the most effective, appealing, and enduring of any ritual ever conceived or devised, yet much of its value has been destroyed in a scientific age by the destruction of so many of its original underlying tenets. The Universal Christian culture has been devitalized, and has lost its moral compass due to the loss of many fundamental ideas.
In the past, truth has grown rapidly and expanded freely when the culture has been elastic, the symbolism expansile. Abundant truth and an adjustable culture have favored rapidity of social progression. A meaningless culture vitiates religion when it attempts to supplant philosophy and to enslave reason; a genuine culture grows naturally and normally as insight develops and realization emerges in the individual.
Regardless of the drawbacks and handicaps which humanity has encountered over the centuries, Salvington offers a revelation - a religious revelation of personal intimacy with a Personal and Infinity God - and while every new revelation of truth has given rise to a new culture, even the restatement of the religion of Michael is now supplanting the age-old notions of his teachings with a broader and deeper revelation of approach to the Universal Spirit who indwells all life.
Our Salvington precepts as given by the Universe Son Michael provide both a living balm of comfort for living in the world yet not precisely of it, and a pathway upward and inward towards the destiny of the second birth of immortality which bring the individual personality into a greater and more refined life of light and life through the omnipotence of God’s forgiving love.
In terms of our adequate symbolism for these new and expanding ideas, ideals, and loyalties, our enhanced symbol arises out of soils of proper and righteous religious living, spiritual experience, and the disciplines of true understanding. Salvington offers the civilization a higher and brighter symbolism befitting a higher and more elevated civilization, and this construct is predicated on the concept of the Parenthood of God .. the Fatherhood of God, and it is impregnated with the motivations for exalted fulfilling service to the mighty ideal of the brotherhood and sisterhood of humanity and the kingdoms of the earth.
The olden cultures through the centuries of evolutionary development for the race has been too egocentric; the new upraised cultural norm must be a beacon of living experience which brings the individual into their own respect and dignity of personhood; each individual realization and its concurrent actualizations must be the outgrowth of applied loving mercy and faithful trust-bearing intimacy with the Infinite Father, Son, and Spirit of the Trinity.
Our cultural atmosphere at Salvington is of this new enlightened and awakened culture which must substantiate itself through true religious experience and advancement; and like the old cultures which have been the establishing force for this current civilization, our principles, precepts, and powers of individual freedom do certainly intend to foster deep and exhilarating sentiment caused by an individual’s decision to ‘walk within the unlimited avenues of truth’, satisfying emotional clarity and joy by becoming aligned with what is true and real, and the always potent alliance and allegiance with the Center and Source of existence which promotes loyalty and peace; but it must do more: It must facilitate spiritual advancement for the individual and the civilization. It must augment the prior revealings of truth and understanding progress, enhance cosmic meanings, augment moral values and the everlasting virtues of the universes, encourage social development, and stimulate a high type of personal religious living.
At Salvington, we offer these declarations for the individual personality to climb the great ascendancy of their own advancements into the Kingdom of God.
The new societal and collegiate culture must provide supreme goals of living which are both temporal and eternal — social and spiritual.
No culture can endure and contribute to the progress of social civilization and individual spiritual attainment unless it is based on the biologic, sociologic, and religious significance of the family, the nucleus of the home. A surviving and advancing culture must symbolize that which is permanent in the presence of unceasing change; it must glorify that which unifies the stream of ever-changing social metamorphosis. It must recognize true meanings, exalt beautiful relations, and glorify the good values of real nobility.
Salvington overrides the present disabilities which the culture hath brought upon itself. It understands the great difficulty of finding a new and satisfying symbolism which can outlast the modern person’s adherence with a mind that originates from animal and mechanical origins.
Modern men and women, as a collective group, adhere to the scientific and intellectual rationale - attitudes of personal subjectivity which seek to find their absolutes within the realm and range of mankind’s mental perturbations.
The modern civilization as it stands today must eschew superstition, abhor ignorance and arrogance, and individuals, while craving to know and understand the Absoluteness of Life must allow themselves to enter into the unknown, to crave mystery and to accept the mysterious and unknown workings which have been in place since the beginning of all creation. Human beings have been erringly taught to venerate the unknown and to produce certainty even when no such certainty can be found outside of living within the very presence and power of the Nameless God.
No culture can survive unless it embodies some masterful mystery and conceals some worthful unattainable ideal.
The forms of our curriculum serve modern humankind in their thirst for advancement and maturity; and any serviceable symbolism or directive of intent must be those which the individual can carry out on his own initiative with the collaborative guidance and assistance of those who have come before him. Personalities must find their drive and motivations to succeed in this new culture, and which he and she can also enjoy advancing with his fellows.
The new culture of Salvington is a dynamic force for goodness, truth, and beauty. It abhors the static, and it contributes something essentially worthwhile and absolutely meaningful to the progress of humankind, touching upon the needs of both the temporal and spiritual.
The Salvington collegiate culture — it is declared revolutionary in its simplicity, and its conscious symbolism bypasses the rituals, slogans, or goals of complexity and over-sophistication. Salvington will thrive and prosper in accordance with the individual's demands for devotion, freedom, liberties of every sort, and the unwavering response of the personhood for building its loyalty to God, its allegiance for his way and truth, and the necessary adorational dedications which raise humankind into the spheres where destiny awaits.
Every effective religion unerringly develops a worthy ideal and a practical symbolism, and its devotees must offset any tendencies for stagnation by over-crystallization of such a fellowship with the Trinity Persons of Infinite expression.
The old days of meaningless ritual and senseless attempts to cramp, deform, and stifle the individual through primitively charged stereotyped ceremonials which can only handicap and retard all social, moral, and spiritual progress - these fixed and formulated dogmatic coffins bring only discontent and failure for the personality in its ascent into knowledge and courage, understanding wisdom and intuition, counsel and the absolute purities of worship.
No collegiate culture can survive if it retards moral growth and fails to foster spiritual progress. The culture of Salvington is the skeletal structure around which grows the living and dynamic body of personal spiritual experience — true religion.
Students who enter into Salvington University enjoy a sublime and wholehearted faith in God. The individual may still experience the ordinary ups and downs of mortal existence, but each one is strengthened in their resolve to persevere; and each learns to never religiously doubt the certainty of God’s watchcare and guidance.
Faith is the outgrowth of the insight born of the activity of the divine presence, the Life of God who lives in your midst. This faith is neither traditional nor merely intellectual; it is wholly personal and purely spiritual.
Our God is at one and the same time “The Holy One of Israel” and “The living and loving Father in heaven.” The concept of God as a Father is not original, but at Salvington we exalt and elevate the idea into a sublime experience by achieving a new revelation of God and by proclaiming that every mortal creature is a child of this Father of love, a son of God.
At Salvington, you will not cling to faith in God as would a struggling soul at war with the universe and at death grips with a hostile and sinful world; you won’t just resort to faith merely as a consolation in the midst of difficulties or as a comfort in threatened despair;
Our faith at Salvington is not just an illusory compensation for the unpleasant realities and the sorrows of living.
In the very face of all the natural difficulties and the temporal contradictions of mortal existence, you will experience the tranquillity of supreme and unquestioned trust in God and feel the tremendous thrill of living, by faith, in the very presence of the heavenly Parenthood of God.
And this triumphant faith is a living experience of actual spirit attainment. Your great contribution to the values of human experience is not that you will reveal so many new ideas about the Parenthood of God in heaven, but rather that you will so magnificently and humanly demonstrated a new and higher type of living faith in God.
God will become a living reality in your human experience. In your life you will be discovering a new and higher type of religion, religion based on personal spiritual intimacy and divine relations with the Universal Parenthood and these personal revelations will become wholly validated by the supreme authority of genuine personal experience. This living faith of Salvington is more than an intellectual reflection, and it is not a mystic meditation.
Theology may fix, formulate, define, and dogmatize faith, but in your human life, faith is meant to become personal, living, original, spontaneous, and purely spiritual. This faith is not reverence for tradition nor a mere intellectual belief which you hold as a sacred creed, but rather a sublime intimacy and direct experience and a profound conviction which securely holds you. Your developing faith will be real and all-encompassing. It will absolutely sweep away any spiritual doubts and effectively destroy every conflicting desire.
Nothing will be able to tear you away from the spiritual anchorage of this fervent, sublime, and undaunted faith. Even in the face of apparent defeat or in the throes of disappointment and threatening despair, you will learn how to be calmly standing in the divine presence free from fear and fully conscious of spiritual invincibility.
In a religious genius, strong spiritual faith so many times leads directly to disastrous fanaticism, to exaggeration of the religious ego, but it will not be so with you. You will not be unfavorably affected in your practical life by this extraordinary faith and spirit attainment because this spiritual exaltation is to become for you a wholly natural subconscious and spontaneous soul expression of your personal intimate relationship and exalted experience with God.
At Salvington, the all-consuming and indomitable spiritual faith of your developing soul will never become fanatical, for it won’t ever attempt to run away with your well-balanced intellectual judgments concerning the proportional values of practical and commonplace social, economic, and moral life situations.
You will be maturing, integrating, and developing a splendidly unified human personality; you will be evolving and growing in your evolutionary advancement towards a perfectly endowed divine being; you are destined to become a magnificently co-ordinated combined human and divine being functioning on earth as a single personality and at one with the living spirit of God in you.
At Salvington, you are learning to coordinate the faith of the soul with the wisdom-appraisals of your seasoned experience as a growing and evolving human personality. Personal faith, spiritual hope, and moral devotion will grow you into this wholeness; a sublimely correlated and matchless religious unity of harmonious association with the keen realization of the reality and sacredness of all human loyalties — personal honor, family love, religious obligation, social duty, and economic necessity.
The faith of students at Salvington learn to visual all spirit values as being found in the kingdom of God consciousness and fellowship; You are learning to raise your priorities and values so that you come to realize the beneficial effects of “Seeking first the kingdom of heaven.”
At Salvington, students realize and experience growth in the advanced and ideal fellowship of the kingdom of Heaven, an achievement and fulfillment of the “will of God.” The very heart of the prayer, “Your kingdom come; your will be done.” Having thus conceived of the kingdom as comprising the will of God, you are learning at Salvington to devote yourself to the cause of its realization with amazing self-forgetfulness and unbounded enthusiasm. But in all this intense transformation, purpose, and personal mission and throughout your extraordinary life there never will appear the fury of the fanatic nor the superficial frothiness of the religious egotist.
Salvington students become the mastery they are seeking. Their lives reflect a consistency conditioned by this living faith, this sublime religious experience. This spiritual attitude comes to wholly dominate your thinking and feeling, while you're believing and praying, your serving and sharing, offer a supreme fulfillment in the cooperative culture of University Of Salvington. And those individuals who give themselves to the pathway of Academic Fellowship discover that their teaching and preaching comes from a real and true place of humility and honor. A humbleness in relationship with the Infinity of God unfolds in well-balanced proportions of love, wisdom, and empowerment with the Spirit of the Father living in you.
This personal faith of a son and daughter in the certainty and security of the guidance and protection of the heavenly Parenthood of God will impart to your unique life a profound endowment of spiritual reality. And yet, despite this very deep consciousness of close relationship with divinity, you will exalt the ideal of God while coming to prepare yourself in the living of his nature and attributes within this ideal fellowship realization.
Salvington shows you, as a man or woman of the realm, the greatest of all offerings: the consecration and dedication of your own will to the majestic service of doing the divine will. You will become strengthened in always and consistently interpreting religion wholly in terms of the Father’s will.
When you study at Salvington prayer or any other feature of the religious life, how you live is held in much greater esteem; not so much what you inwardly know and understand but your willingness to place into human expression the ideal is the goal of attainment. We look not so much for what you have learned as for what you do with what you've learned.
Salvington instructs students to never pray as obligation nor as solely a religious duty. Instead, the ideal of Salvington permits you to develop a genuine faith and a spontaneous trust. Prayer is a sincere expression of spiritual attitude, a declaration of soul loyalty, a recital of personal devotion, an expression of thanksgiving, an avoidance of emotional tension, a prevention of conflict, an exaltation of intellection, an ennoblement of desire, a vindication of moral decision, an enrichment of thought, an invigoration of higher inclinations, a consecration of impulse, a clarification of viewpoint, a declaration of faith, a transcendental surrender of will, a sublime assertion of confidence, a revelation of courage, the proclamation of discovery, a confession of supreme devotion, the validation of consecration, a technique for the adjustment of difficulties, and the mighty mobilization of the combined soul powers to withstand all human tendencies toward selfishness, evil, and sin. You will come to live just such a life of prayerful consecration to the doing of our Father’s will, and your life will expand and express itself triumphantly with just such a prayer. The secret of this unparalleled religious life is this consciousness of the presence of God; and you will attain it by intelligent prayer and sincere worship — unbroken communion with God — and not by leadings, voices, visions, or extraordinary religious practices.
In your earthly life, religion becomes a living experience, a direct and personal movement from spiritual reverence to practical righteousness. The faith of students of Salvington bear the transcendent fruits of the divine spirit. Their faith is not immature and credulous like that of a child, but in many ways it will resemble the unsuspecting trust of the child mind.
You will trust in God much as the child trusts a parent. Students who give themselves to our ideas and ideal, and come to practice daily its precepts have a profound confidence in the universe — just such a trust as the child has in its parental environment. Your wholehearted faith in the fundamental goodness of the universe will very much resemble the child’s trust in the security of its earthly surroundings.
You will depend on the heavenly Parenthood of God as a child leans upon its earthly parent, and this fervent faith will transfigure any doubts in the certainty of the heavenly Father’s overcare. Students of Salvington are usually not disturbed seriously by fears, doubts, and skepticism. Unbelief will not inhibit the free and original expression of your life.
You will be combining the stalwart and intelligent courage of a full-grown adult with the sincere and trusting optimism of a believing child. Your faith will grow to such heights of trust that it will be absolutely devoid of fear.
The faith of our students eventually and over time attain the purity of a child’s trust. Your faith becomes so absolute and undoubting that you will feel the thrill and exhilaration of responding joyfully to the charm of the contact of fellow beings and to the wonders of the universe. Your sense of dependence on the divine will become matured and ripened to such heights, it will grow so wide and deep; to such complete and so confident a state of experience that it will yield to you the joy and the assurance of absolute personal security, stability, and safety.
There will be no hesitating pretense in your religious experience. In this evolving developing attainment of personal religious intimacy, the faith of the child reigns supreme in all matters relating to the religious consciousness. It is not strange that you will come to understand the statement once said, “Except you become as a little child, you shall not enter the kingdom.” Notwithstanding that your personal faith trust realization will be childlike, it will in no sense become childish.
