Love is harmony with all, unperturbed, without objection, denial or exclusion.
As Love is recognized in the brilliance of its own illumination, all is seen as light, all is known as Love.
In music, dissonance is a disquieting or unstable chord or interval that moves us away from consonance, the pleasing, stable, resting state.
We might notice something quite like dissonance de-stabalizing our bliss. Could it be creative movement, leading us away from harmony, and by its very nature leading us back, again?
Dear one, notice the disquieting desire in you to disrupt rest. Notice that it is not in disagreement with harmony and Love. Notice that it is Love in the infinite act of creation.
In all ways, know Love. In all of Love's manifestations, know Love.
There is only Love. You are that.

Said the nun, "You cannot even recognize the characters. How are you able then to understand the meaning?"
"Truth has nothing to do with words. Truth can be likened to the bright moon in the sky. Words, in this case, can be likened to a finger. The finger can point to the moon’s location. However, the finger is not the moon. To look at the moon, it is necessary to gaze beyond the finger, right?"
