I have not experienced revelation as instruction or word from an external divine being and have no intent here to consider or argue—pro or con—this conception of revelation.
However, I have sometimes experienced ideas as if possessing their own flow, force, and reality. In as much as this experience is truly the result of influence from some greater being I think it must be that we are part of the greater being of the Universe.
The following brief outline of Journey in Being is a reconstruction rather than what I experienced as original flow. I write it down as the barest of outlines to the essential ideas of the narrative.
Being is that which exists.
Experience—awareness—is the core,
The Universe is All Being.
Whatever has Being is in the Universe.
‘Being’ discriminates only existence from
The Universe contains all creation
Knowledge of the natural world is
The primary examples of laws
A law is a reading of a pattern;
The Void is the absence of Being.
All states emerge from the Void,
The Universe has no limits.
Realism—i.e., Logic—is the only constraint for
Natural science and experience have domains of
The Universe has (must have) manifestation and
That something must come from nothing is a trivial corollary.
The extension, duration, variety, summit, and
The Universe confers these powers on individuals—
The individual realizes the Universe.
Power is conceived as degree of limitlessness.
Apparent limits are part of the constitution
Such, too, is the nature of human limits.
While in limited form realization is endless process—
In unlimited form realization is Aeternitas—
The oneness, connection, and continuity
That realization for limited form is endless
Our civilization is the web of human culture
Individuals foster Civilization;
(While in limited form realization is endless
While individual and Civilization are vehicles,
Civilization provides ways of ideation and action—
The standard forms of the disciplines—
Our apparent limits are Laws or
The apparently stable initial ground
The individual journey is given.
The way of realization lies
This break down and rebuilding is appropriately
The places of realization are
Realization derives inspiration from the disciplines
