Revelation



What Do You Need To Grasp

Divine Revelation?



subtitle


Revelation[1] is 'based', that is to say, implies and requires among individuals, the existence of transcendent[2] faculties[3] capable to receive communication from a Higher Source.[4]


These faculties may be called 'intellectual intuition', or 'inspiration', the important point is to see that they all correspond to the same function: the capacity to receive, by implementing particular aptitudes, of a superhuman repository, which is none other than the 'primordial tradition’.


This capacity propre belonging to man allows him to open up, regarding 'inspiration', to the action of what Christianity considers the action of the Holy Spirit, and to that which is 'intellectual intuition' to the superior states of being.


Revelation is therefore 'cognisance' par excellence and definition (consciousness knowing, cognition, finding, recognition; Erkenntnis), it is the direct Light from above, pure intelligence, pure spirituality.
