they used to cal it "revelation"

my revelation:
the more i realize that my purpose is not myself,
the more satisfied and fulfilled i am by what my purpose is.
meaning:
if you are concerned about your purpose, and what that is and what it should look like...quit looking at yourself and you'll see it.

they used to call it "revelation" when God showed you something that was beyond what you already held to be true. they might consider "revelation" to be too spiritual now, but for some reason even though before I thought the term was a little odd... it full on describes the situation when God pours something into you that you had no way of gaining through learned wisdom. a revelation is a shift, insight, not just something that you learn, but something that is powerfully divine. just a taste of the potent nectar that is to come.
