Sprinkle: Love and Elevators…

by SprinklinThoughts

I think some people (maybe even many) think of Love as kind of an elevator…. from which we step out onto different levels…

– On the ground Level (first floor) is what we call self-love as we love ourselves (however much; but at least as in feeding &  clothing)
– The second floor might be love of nature, loving our environment
– The third floor could be love of family, we love our parents and siblings
– Fourth floor, love of our friends
– Fifth floor, love of our mate or spouse
– Sixth floor, love of our children
– Seventh floor, love of others (known as agape love)
– Someplace around the 70th floor may be other, super high, levels of love (like sainthood for example) 🙂

All of these levels imply a different love on each… but how is Love different on these levels? what is it that makes it different?

I think that somehow we temper Love, subtracting pieces here and there as we try to adjust Love to some acceptable subset that is suitable for the occasion… child, lover, stranger, friend…

Loving in this way is like living behind a small slot in a dungeon door… ridiculous really (unless you’re actually in a dungeon).

And that, I believe, is precisely the problem…

Love is not an elevator with different levels, where the door opens and we beam out one little ray… or where we dress differently depending on what floor we’re visiting…

Love is One… Love is all of those things, in One… all of those levels of Love are One and the same thing… the difference between them is not the level (what we do show)… the difference is in what we take away from Love… like placing dark patches on Love’s Light…

If we stop hiding pieces of Love, It will shine brighter for everyone in every way… and it will become stronger…

Many things become possible when we Love wholly (shine without holes)… the wholly becomes Holy… Yeshua, the Christ, healed… yes… a wondrous life-giving Love…

Yes… and did you also notice that when they tried to take Him before His time, they could not…

“Then they sought to him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.” – John 7:30
“Therefore they sought again to him: but he escaped out of their hand,” – John 10:39

Is Love that strong? I believe so… and then I wonder: if this is so, why do we hesitate to Love?

Look at all the levels of love within yourself… what does that tell you of yourself… and of Love within you?
