Revelation is an experience not a teaching

Revelation is intensely personal and cannot be meaningfully translated. That is why any attempt to describe it in words is impossible. Revelation influences only experience. Miracles, on the other hand, induce action. T-1.!!.2:1-4

It is written in the Tao Te Ching “ The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The Tao that can be named is not the eternal Name.”

Any name of God is an idol and not the real God. When talking about God if you think the talk is true you have mistaken bullshit for reality.

Revelation is an experience; it is not in any book no matter how holy. It is in the heart not in the head.

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested in step eleven that we enhance our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. God is not to be found in any book nor any creed not in any doctrine nor in any sermon. God is ineffable and found in Unconditional Love which is found in one’s heart and experience.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. It is in this inherent worth and dignity that the experience of revelation is to be found.

Today, enjoy the stillness and tune into the revelation of the Tao if, even only, for a few seconds.
