Root meaning: God revealing Himself to us. Christian: God revealing to us ideas and truths, usually through the words of Scripture. ACIM: God revealing knowledge of Himself through direct, wordless, imageless experience of union with Him (traditionally called the mystical experience). Refers to both the final or permanent experience of God in Heaven (which is the end or goal of the journey) and to temporary experiences of God while in this world (which reveal the end of the journey). Yet to reach this end, miracles are needed. They are the means and are more valuable now than revelation. See grace. See T-1.II.
