Dear Friend and Listener:

In today’s edition of The Miracle Hour, I return to the introductory text of A Course in Miracles, focusing particularly on Chapter 1, Section II, which lends its title to this show.

This text deals with the nature of revelation, and its connection to how we relate to the Divine and one another. This is not the apocalyptic “Revelation” of the Bible, but something much more pleasant. Here is an excerpt from the lesson:

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.

I also talk about my own experiences of revelation, which to a certain extent bears out what is written in ACIM. In the final segment, I move on to section VI, The Illusion of Needs.

As usual, this 59-minute broadcast, created for the Pacifica Radio Network, is accompanied by music from Vision Quest. You may listen to all past episodes here.

With love,

        I think it would be easy for us to dismiss this work as dualistic and therefore sex-negative by implication, but I’m not sure it’s so very simple. Worth examining in detail, perhaps. My doubts issue from the fact that we are emerging – gradually – from many centuries of authoritarian Church rule and indoctrination. However pure, a message must always be filtered through its instrument.

        It’s like what you say about the gender-specific language – just because God is “He” doesn’t make the ideas necessarily any less potent or true. The fact that you experienced genuine visions inspired by this work tells in its favour, I think.

        Having said all this, I am open to contrary arguments. :)

          The thing is, the debate would settle nothing; it’s necessary to experience it. In what I offer to my readers and the people I work and study with, you’re getting a lot of Course in Miracles by osmosis. Some of the best psychological maneuvers I use in the horoscope come from two main bodies of work — Gestalt therapy and Course in Miracles.
