memory of God

Our memory of the heavenly state of oneness with God; our awakening to that state. Not a memory of past events, but of a present state which is still within us but is denied (see T-28.I.4:1-2). This memory can be experienced in holy instants of revelation (see T-28.I.11:4-12:2), and begins to rise in our minds as we near the end of the journey (see T-19.IV(D).1:3-5). But it fully and permanently comes only in the final step (see W-pI.168.3), after we have looked on the face of Christ.
