Revelation is the mystical experience of Oneness. When experienced, time stands still. We are outside of our normal unawakened state. With revelation we have awoken to the reality our natural inheritance.
When we shift from the world of the ego to the world of Spirit it is a mind altering experience. When this mind altering experience occurs between ourselves and God it is called “revelation.” When this mind altering experience occurs with our brothers and sisters it is called a “miracle.”
To be consciously aware of this mind altering experience, we rejoice and feel great peace. The mind altering experience does not come from us, but from our Transcendent Source. We didn’t cause it, but we recognize and acknowledge it. It is this recognition and acknowledgement over which we can have conscious control. We can believe whatever we want about it, but what we choose to believe influences how we behave, what we do.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. It is practicing this conscious contact that purifies our minds for the reception of revelation and miracles.
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. It is this search that leads us in the direction of revelation and miracles.
Today, it is suggested that we choose the world of Spirit over the world of the ego. This is done simply by asking ourselves consistently, “What would love have me do?”
