The revelation of perfect Peace means separation: the Revealed remains what He is—“I am”—and what makes Him manifest takes nothing from Him, nor does it add anything. Everything that manifests Him remains in the original love of Him Who reveals Himself, and has its reality in its return, which is not postponed: both the present moment and death are its constant presences, its inseparability from Eternity and life. That Source is the same as the Confluence. And that is the potential perfection of every phenomenon. The aspiration toward it, or return, disclosing, and realization, is love. It is the oneness of the Source and the Confluence, for creation is in love. Every detail of that multiplicity has its perfection only in its manifestation of oneness and peace. Free flow and tenderness of heart mean that they are in direct relationship with God.

Keywords: God; love; oneness; peace; free flow; tenderness; perfection; phenomenon; multiplicity
