THE SEVEN ASPECTS OF LOVE

 

“‘And none of them would, because in none of the ordinary beings-men here has there ever been for a long time, any sensation of the sacred being-impulse of genuine Love. And without this “taste” they cannot even vaguely describe that most beatific sacred being-impulse in the presence of every three-centered being of the whole Universe, which, in accordance with the divine foresight of Great Nature, forms those data in us, from the result of the experiencing of which we can blissfully rest from the meritorious labors actualized by us for the purpose of self-perfection.”

Beelzebub’s Tales, Chapter “The-Terror-of-the-Situation,” page 357

 

 

Love of God

This is the highest form of Love

 

Love of Neighbor

This is the second highest form of Love

 

3   Love of Self

Without this form of Love, no other forms exist

 

4   Love of Parents

“If a man does not love his parents, he cannot Love God.”

 

5   Love of Consciousness

This is the kind of Love that evokes the same kind of Love

 

6    Love of Feeling

This kind of Love evokes the opposite.

 

7     Love of Body

This kind of Love depends on type and polarity. A man cannot experience true and genuine Love if he had not first loved a woman, even if only once.
