2-40. There are no degrees, levels or variations in God's perfect Love for you. Faith will help you remember that you once rested, forever Safe, in this Truth.
The logic, structure and orientation of this world is highly aligned with the concept of levels, presenting both the necessity for them and a presumed requirement for their existence as being integral to the functioning of perception within all that this world holds itself out to be. But the logic of this world does not hold when regarded against all that is Eternal, for the Love that God has for all of the Children of God is Infinite. As such, there are no degrees, levels or variations within this Infinite Love, for it is forever Given in equal measure to all of the Children of God. It cannot be diminished, destroyed, corrupted or altered, no matter what you might believe or feel about yourself. You do not need to hold the same love in your heart for yourself that God holds in the Heart of God for you to remember the Love that is the origin of your Creation within all that is Eternal. It would be best if you would, for a new world would arise in your corrected perception were you to accept that the Love of God is indeed Infinite in both its nature and its scope, accepting everything that transpires just as it is and knowing you forever as the Perfect Spirit of Love that you are, even when you desire to sink ever deeper into the despair, desolation and horror of belief that will accompany a complete relinquishment of your own love for yourself, causing you to believe that because you find it to be impossible to love yourself, God must find it equally impossible to Love you. This is not True. It has never been True and it will never be, for much of what you believe yourself to be is but the merest of illusions, fragmentary perceptions based on suppositions and beliefs that are simply incorrect. Faith will assist you in ways that words fail to appropriately capture to regain a greater understanding of the unlimited and universal Nature of the Love of God, dispelling the darkness of the ego and its madness, replacing the darkness that the ego has cast over your heart with the Light and the Truth that the Love of God will bring to your healing mind. There was a time, although the use of the word time is highly inappropriate as this period in your eternal existence occurred before time was born along with this material universe, in which you rested with complete Peace, both aware of and completely willing to accept the Truth of the Love of God without reservation, hesitation or qualms of any sort. But this period has ended, albeit so very temporarily that it is a moment within the totality of your existence that is so amazingly brief that it almost could be said to have no true relevance when regarded from the completeness that is Eternity. You have forgotten that the Love of God is not withheld for any reason, and more importantly, you have forgotten that all beliefs in your ability to divide that which is Infinite have no relevance or importance whatsoever. You can not separate that which is Infinite from Itself, for it is All and that is sufficient. The perception of the possibility that there might be differing degrees of the Love of God is based upon the general perceptual framework that pervades this world. This world relies upon distinctions and measures of separation, defining one person as in alignment with a recommended structure, belief system or conceptual ideal and another person as out of alignment with the same structure. These methods of distinction may have some value within the context of this world, but they have no meaning when regarded from Eternity, for all of the Children of God are Equal in the Sight of God. All are Loved and none are excluded from this Love for any reason. This is not to say that some Children of God have become so enraptured with this world or so twisted by the madness of the ego that they have committed great and grievous offenses against themselves or others. But their actions do not serve to disqualify them of the Love of God. Their actions call for healing, forgiveness and remedy, for only the insane seek to harm others or themselves. The concept of levels is similar in nature to the idea of degrees but it refers to a slight different concept. Levels implies a concept that some Children of God might be more deserving of material rewards, greater enjoyment or easier material existences, predicated upon an assumption that they exist within a higher level of awareness, or that they have effected a greater number of good works or other tasks that have qualified them for rewards that others do not enjoy. This concept is equally as fraught with the illusions of the ego as the idea that there might be degrees of God’s Love. All of the Children of God, in spite of their poor choices and without regard to the number of good works they have completed, including the quality, efficacy and results of their labors, are not at all more deserving of the Love of God than any other Child of God. Their efforts are appreciated and recognized, but they do not earn increases within a system of ranking, moving the closer to the Heart of God while others move farther away as a consequence of their dastardly actions and the pain that they cause to others or themselves. There are no levels to advance through, for the Love of God is already Given and it is only your choice to believe that you could in any way be undeserving of this Infinite Love that appears to block the Light of Love from your corrected perception. The final concept of variations integrates the previous two but in a slightly more obtuse manner, representing a truly unjustifiable proposition that the Love of God might vary at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all. This too will never occur, for God is eternally Constant and forever Certain of your worthiness of the Love of God, no matter how much you may vacillate around this concept as an abstract, perhaps one day believing it to a greater degree than you do on another. Acceptance is a much more useful tool than judgment in this regard, for even the smallest amount of acceptance of what will be for you, at least at first, merely the possibility that you could be Infinitely Loved by God will open the smallest of spaces within your mind, though which the Light of Love that shines forth from your heart can being to be recognized and Experienced again, as it once was in its completeness. Once you rested, forever Safe and fully aware of your Safety within the Heart of God, accepting the Infinite Love that was Given at your Creation and that still remains, on this day and for all of the days yet to come, as the most important Truth that you will need to allow yourself to accept when you are ready to release the bonds of the ego in favor of the Love of God. You can remember this Experience, though not in the fashion that memory is regarded as functioning within this world, for this Experience occurred before time was at all necessary and as such, it is a memory that hearkens back to that which is Infinite. That makes this Experience more than a memory, it is actually a Reality that is still present but that you have denied, for you have desired to believe what the ego has offered in the place of what God Knows. God Knows that you are Love Itself. You likely do not yet accept this Truth in its Entirety, for if you were to release all that appears to stand between you and the Experience of Love everlasting, all that could possibly be anything other than Love would be known as simple illusions, never having any utility for you and now released back into the nothingness from which they were first formed. Once you rested, Safe within the Truth of the Love of God. Again you shall rest, Perfect Child of God, and the memory of the Experience of accepting the Love of God in its Entirety shall lead you Home.
