To Know and to Understand
R & R is a quite familiar abbreviation, particularly if you have served in the military. It stands for rest and relaxation. I like the abbreviation, but I’m assigning it a new meaning for a spiritual purpose. That meaning is Revelation and Reflection, the title of this blog.
Revelation, from a human perspective, is about knowing. It is my belief that a fullness of knowing is available to me, much more than I can imagine at the moment. That knowing comes, not from stacks of books by learned authors, or the profound teachings of a wise one, but from the depth of my own authentic self that connects with the divine in me, allowing Truth to be unveiled and thus revealed. In taking this approach, I open myself to insight and intuition, both utterly reliable, though I have not always valued them.Reflection is a serious consideration of truth that leads to understanding. Sometimes it mirrors something already in my awareness, and sometimes it takes the form of folding back a screen that has hidden something I have already known. It is a remembering of who I am and of the truth that lies deep in my soul.
Revelation and Reflection…to know and to understand. As I engage both of these, I find purpose…and an array of tools for navigating life.
