“Healing is of God in the end. The means are being carefully explained to you. Revelation may occasionally reveal the end to you, but to reach it the means are needed. (T16)”
Affirmation: “Revelation may occasionally reveal the end”
We may know revelation, the revelation of Awakening, several times before it is permanent. This is not a Course concept, but one that we can observe in our brothers and ourselves. To have known Awakening, even briefly, is a very wonderful blessing; it shows us what is possible. We really do live in the present, and we live without anxiety in the present. It is a time of great joy and freedom from fear.
The “means,” in this passage, are found in A Course in Miracles. When we follow the way pointed out in its lovely writing, we will ultimately know the end of the Awakening that does not leave us.
It is comforting to know that we are, at any time, subject to revelation. This is not quite the same as miracles. We cannot easily explain revelation, as it sounds truthful only to ourselves, being intensely personal–from God to us, always. He knows us as nobody in this world can. An inner awareness of God will go a long way toward recognizing that He and we are not separate at all.
Thank you for the times in my life that revelation has revealed Awakening to me. It was not sustained, but that it happened at all is grounds for hope that one day Awakening will be permanent.
May all of us know this great joy of experiencing Awakening. A Course in Miracles explains the healing that leads us to it.
