Heavenletter #5020 The Ascension of Love , August 23, 2014 http://heavenletters.org/the-ascension-of-love.html
It is understandable that the concept of opposites in the world has earned a shady reputation. Sides are taken because of opposites. Opposites are conducive to weighing, and weighing is judging. Of course, appraisal is part of life in the world.
There is someone everywhere in the world asking: “Is this a good bride for me? Is this bridge safe to go over? Is this paint wet or dry?” Endless are the questions, and uncertainty rides the range.
In the world, there is sickness, and there is health. Wealth and poverty. Fat and thin. War and peace. Harmony and strife. Gain and loss. Good guy. Bad guy. Which is which may depend upon which side you are on or who is telling the story or retelling it.
I have said that in everything, there is good. Even in contrast, there is good. There is good in everything.
No one I know on Earth has been without heartache. There is a general acceptance of suffering. Everyone knows what suffering is. It needs no explanation. Furthermore, there are ranges of suffering and various shades of light cast upon suffering. There is big, and there is little, and there are moments of suffering obviated. No one I know on Earth is beyond the pale of suffering. No one I know, when it comes to suffering, says: “Huh? What’s that?”
Even to the concept of suffering, there is something of value. When you take the tight shoe off, there is a sigh of relief.
In the world, there is growth. Every once in a while, you can say to yourself: “I have grown. I have really grown. I’m not the same person I used to be. I see differently. I understand differently.”
Through shadow, you see light.
The way sunshine bursts through clouds, there comes a time when you burst through this scene of opposites. You are no longer opposed. Life is not so grievous. You no longer make a big to-do of it. It could be said that you see from a greater distance and see better. It could also be said that you have come closer and now see better. In any case, you see with new eyes. Love has taken over. This is a more encompassing love.
Something has happened to you. This is called change. This is called growth. Something has changed within you, and you are seeing this growth. You are living it. It’s here.
You can not take credit, yet it has come to you, and you are living it.
Growth is a natural progression. Life on Earth offers you this natural progression. It is not that an intellectual light bulb goes on. This progression is beyond thought. It is a greater understanding, yet it is beyond understanding and all the senses. It is an affair of the heart, yet it is deeper than what you had thought heart meant. Something greater than all the inconvenience and bumps arises like an angel bursting out of the water and rising straight to Heaven.
This is love, and it is this love that levels the playing field. It is love, a new flavor of love, a new height of love, a new closeness of love. Even tears can fall within this rising love, and the love is not drowned by the tears. This could be called the Ascension of Love. Love ascends beyond the reach of perplexity. The whole concept of problem has taken a long walk and is no longer in the mix.
Call this state of consciousness what you will. Call it Payday. Call it Peace. Call it Ascension. Call it Enlightenment. Call it Nirvana. Call it Heaven. Call it Beyond Where Thought Can Go. Call it where you have moved to. Call it where you now dwell. Call it an uncompromising love that has changed the world you see and, inevitably, the world itself, and you, and everyone else.
