Love expresses and experiences itself as both passion and peace, cyclically and simultaneously unfolding in the totality of being. The “medium” for our passionate and peaceful intentions is “resonance,” which is one of the keys to healing. The classic example of resonance involves two tuning forks, each having the same natural frequency, in tune with one another. If you strike one tuning fork tuned to A and put it next to another A tuning fork, it will induce a vibration in the other. If you put that same vibrating tuning fork next to a B or C tuning fork, it will not vibrate. There is no resonance. Only similars vibrate.
We can’t equate love with resonance per se because, for example, if you have unresolved anger and you walk into a room where there are angry people, you might get angry at them or with them. That anger is activated through resonance with the anger within you. So resonance by itself is not an example of love. However, when you are loving, resonance is always present. In other words, resonance is necessary but not sufficient for healing with love.
Love doesn’t “create” unity because Oneness already IS. The function of love is to remember Oneness. That is what the Game of Awakening is all about. We live in a world of apparent separation, and love reminds us that there is only One appearing as many. It re-connects us with our missing “members” — whether those members be fragmented parts of ourselves, others we feel alienated from, or our own connection with Source. Love “awakens” us to the unity that is ever present, and brings back the members that appeared separate but never were.
