The holy mountain is a place of equality. Things only become equal by love. Love creates equality and hate, or hurt, creates separation. A major purpose on the holy mountain is to reduce the division in our hearts by accepting the matchless love of the Master. The equality is to bring us to balance. Though it often does not seem like balance because on the mountain balance is having first affection for the Lord and next affection for all other things. This is perfect balance.
Only the holy mountain can cause us to think this way. The life of ‘being busy’ and having ‘no time’ for this balance can only produce a balance that tips the scales in our direction instead of His. We become the most important and significant part of our day. This is not equality because love is only for ourselves and little, if any, is expended to produce the atmosphere of the holy mountain. We soon find in our reason and excuse making that the mountain is holy and only desire for holiness can get us to approach, much less climb, the mountain. But the moment we take the first step love begins the process of equality, making two one. This is love, to make two one.
