Revealed VS Unrevealed

Recommended Posts

Revealed information: "We recognize the impossibility of fully translating the language of the concepts of divinity and eternity into the symbols of the language of the finite concepts of the mortal mind"

 

Even the revealed information may have more unrevealed info than that has been written. Several of the Papers has stated that there is unrevealed information as that particular entity did not have the knowledge to expand on that subject, or that knowledge is not yet ready to be perceived by the finite mind.

 

This said, my point is that us humans cannot truly understand the whole picture since we have not all the information needed to enable the finite mind to perceive ALL truth. One has to remember that there is always more.

 

If God-consciousness is obtained, then one can identify the truth in this world through that means. The one that is within will confirm the truth/revelation / expand the truth/revelation / guide to the truth/revelation.

 

What effect do you think this has on people?

It means that those of us who lack God-consciousness must depend upon normal logical methods to find truth, and be ever-aware of the fallibility with which we do so.

 

I suppose that all who have God-consciousness know that they have it. That's not something I can assert with any authority, but it seems right. On the other hand, not all those who lack God-consciousness know that they lack it. So it's quite possible to mistake the projections of one's own ego as the deliverances of God-consciousness.

Hi FTFSGRL. Todd, all,

 

We are finite mortal humans. We comprehend the concepts of divinity and eternity in finite language. We are pint-sized. But we know there is more to know, more to conprehend, more beyond our wildest dreams to pursue in truth, beauty and goodness.

 

3. Inherent capacities cannot be exceeded; a pint can never hold a quart. The spirit concept cannot be mechanically forced into the material memory mold.
P. 556 - §5

 

But the proof of the pudding is in the tasting, one bite at a time, to the limit of one's capacity.

 

All the best,

Meredith
