“…Revelation induces complete but temporary suspension of doubt and fear. It reflects the original form of communication between God and His creations, involving the extremely personal sense of creation sometimes sought in physical relationships. Physical closeness cannot achieve it…

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…”

Are You Invested in the Truth or in Debt to Death?

One Light of Being™

InvocationDear Holy Spirit, today is a glorious new day full of opportunities to receive Your Help and Companionship as we walk together back Home.   Yet my mind is still so undisciplined.  My thoughts quickly lead me away from the Path of Peace when I do not look upon them with You.  And how dramatic now do I see the difference my thoughts and Yours bring to my mind.  You are a shining Light from which I hide when I entertain the false thoughts of my ego, and in hiding You, I hide the Peace and Joy which You bring for me.  Today, I am determined to see with Your Holy Sight.   I am determined to hear Your Holy Thoughts.  I accept the gifts You bring and hold them out to the world that they may be received.  I give your Love and forgiveness, that I recognize I have…
