Love – The Three Kinds.

The messenger.

One kind of love is affection – normally considered to be love in a less intense form. Affection is variable according to the factors influencing it – it is a ‘worldly’ phenomenon and impermanent.
The second kind is that which stems from the emotions and/or the sensations. Thus, at times it may seem to be sensational, but it is still emotional because it is an emotional reaction to one’s sensations. This we can term emotional love. Emotional love is variable according to the factors influencing it – it is a ‘worldly’ phenomenon and impermanent.
The third kind of love is undefinable; it is an ‘aspect’ of the Great Spirit or Thought – and, therefore, an ‘aspect’ of us as Spirit. In us it is our subconscious awareness of our Oneness with our absolute state – the Great Spirit. This we can call fundamental love and fundamental love is a constant – it is not a ‘worldly’ phenomenon but has a worldly influence and is permanent.
Affection and emotional love are universal phenomena whereas fundamental love just is.
