Reason and Spiritual Revelation

Divine Science is a metaphysical system of spiritual healing, the concurrence of reason and revelation. Logical reasoning supersedes the reactions of emotions and superstitions. Revelation interplays by releasing the human reasoning from sense and flux and advancing consciousness to a level of reality connected to ongoing wellbeing, both mental and physical.

Although language is not equipped to deal with a reality that lay beyond human concepts and reason, concepts and reason are not denied, but used scientifically to prepare the mind to receive a revelation, such as the revelation that health is a state of mind, not matter.

A spiritual revelation is not to be confused with a human revelation. A disclosed tidbit of interesting history, or piece of gossip, is not a spiritual revelation, but human knowledge remembered.

A spiritual revelation stays connected to reason. For example, the paradigm shift that causes us to seek health in consciousness, rather than in matter, is effective only as decisions are based on common sense. We will be savvy. Savvy, as to proper food and exercise, has a presence. Even the ascetic 4th century monk, St. Onuphrius, who lived on one date and spring water every day, for 70 years, used common sense. He wasn’t out digging ditches during the day.

The consciousness of harmony is reached as reason and revelation agree.
