II. Revelation, Time and Miracles, P 2
2 Revelation is intensely personal and cannot be meaningfully translated. That is why any attempt to describe it in words is impossible. Revelation induces only experience. Miracles, on the other hand, induce action. They are more useful now because of their interpersonal nature. In this phase of learning, working miracles is important because freedom from fear cannot be thrust upon you. Revelation is literally unspeakable because it is an experience of unspeakable love.
A revelation is something revealed and we see in this paragraph that the something is love, but it is a love that is different from anything we know. In fact it is unspeakable, there are no words to describe it. I understand now why my friend said that he could not imagine living in that state it was so intense. I would like to experience revelation but this is not something that can be attained through my own efforts or earned in some way. I will experience it if that would be helpful to my awakening and when I should. I accept that.
While revelation is an experience, miracles induce action. They are brother-to-brother and so more useful to us at this time. They bring us together; they help us remember our wholeness. It is important that we work miracles so that we learn who we are. Jesus says that freedom from fear cannot be thrust upon us, and as we learn to work miracles we learn we have nothing to fear.
When I discovered that something had gone wrong with my son’s medical procedure, I called him. He was in such excruciating pain that he literally could not talk. We didn’t know if there was permanent damage or if this would pass. It wasn’t supposed to happen in the first place so who knew what it meant. For awhile my mind froze up. I couldn’t think outside the ego mind, which was frozen in fear.
After awhile, as I asked the Holy Spirit for help, my mind began to clear and I could hear the Voice for God. I went back and forth for a few days as I got sucked into the ego voice of fear, remembered this could not be true and listened again to Spirit. I sent a message to some friends asking for their prayerful support. I got messages back, and the blessing was that not one of them said anything about how sad or scary this was. Each message was a message of truth. God bless my friends.
During those few days I had to remain vigilant for the truth. It had been a long time since I had gone through something like this where I was overwhelmed with doubt and fear and I was reminded to be compassionate when others are confused and afraid. The truth is simple but when the ego has your attention it doesn’t always feel simple.
Once I returned to sanity I remembered the truth.
- There is nothing outside my mind, and that includes Toby and his injury.
- I am not sick and cannot die, but I can confuse myself with things that do, and that is true for Toby as well.
- I remember that Toby and I are not two separate beings; we are one. When I am afraid for Toby, I am in my mind separating us. I am ok, but Toby is not.
- When I think Toby needs to be healed, I have forgotten there is but one mind. I am in that moment an unhealed healer. As I am healed, I withdraw my projection and ask that my mind be healed of the belief in pain and suffering.
- My Spirit provides exactly what I need to support me. I trust my Spirit and this is equally true for Toby.
- No matter what seems to be happening, no matter how much proof I seem to have to the contrary, nothing is happening. Both Toby and I are safe in God. We are dreaming of fear and pain and that is all.
This is the way to the miracle. I hear the Voice for God and I heed that voice rather than the ego. I remember the truth for Toby while he may not be able to do so, just as my friends did for me. I ask that my mind be healed of whatever it is that is causing the situation with Toby in the understanding that I am responsible for everything in my life. I wait in happy anticipation to see how the miracle will show up in our story.
