The Flux of Revelation

You must go into isolation, into silence and solitude, where you can get a glimpse of your essence.

See that with regard to the phenomenal world you are the vessel and not that which is in the vessel. The world happens to you and before you. World is that which is continually experienced, but you are the experience itself. Being the vessel and of divine essence the phenomenal world is revealed to you according to your orientation and anticipation. The content takes the form of the container. If you consider yourself to be a mere psycho-physical entity in a meaningless cosmos, then that you shall be and live. If you see yourself as embodied spirit in the divine kingdom, then that you shall be and live.

See that your instantaneous experience of the phenomenal world is itself an instance of revelation. This world, the world that includes all sciences and religions and galaxies and gods, is a world constantly appearing to you, and it appears according to the sense and significance by which you anticipate it; that is, according to the form that you assume. We are immersed in constant influx of revelation, experience itself being the primordial form of revelation. This you of which I speak is that sole dweller of the void. It is always there, for without it nothing is. If you, your mundane, psycho-physical you, doesn’t see or feel the essential you it is because you are all-pervading. It is so present that we fail to detect it. But when we see it we have already become it, and then we know that “I am the only thing that exists.”
