Love

LOVE

It is not possible to explain the inexplicable, but it is possible to teach you how to connect with the Love that you are. You can learn the characteristics and traits of Love and then you can start to extend this Love outwards to others.

According to Greek philosophy, there are the 7 different kinds of love, a sure attempt of reaching the enormity of what Love is and how it is expressed in the world. But for the sake of this program we are focusing on the Love that permeates all things. This Love is unseen, but is expressed through our thoughts, words and actions.

These are the 7 different kinds of love according to Greek philosophy:

  1. Eros – romantic, passionate love (of the body)
  2. Philia – affectionate, friendly love
  3. Storge – unconditional, familial love
  4. Agape – selfless, universal love
  5. Ludus – playful, flirtatious love
  6. Pragma – committed, long-lasting love
  7. Philautia – self love
Unfortunately, the word ‘love’ conjures up different images for different people based on their own experience of ‘love’ in their lives. To truly connect with the Love that permeates all things, you need to clear the playing fields, wash away the dirt and grime of the past, release your fear of the future, and learn to live in the present. Just as you are. It is such a wonderful experience to sit comfortably on your own, without any fears, expectations, anxieties or depression.
 
Just imagine, it has taken perhaps decades of learning and relating to love in one way, only to find that your thinking has been off the mark and based on conditional love, without you even realizing it. But this is okay. It is all okay. Now is the time to put the un- in conditional. Embrace true unconditional love, in all areas of your life, and step into the freedom of being you.
