Four Levels of Love
There are four (4) levels of love. Each one has a place in the order of things plus each one ties in with the rest.
The highest is the spiritual love that flows naturally from within. It is the deepest love anyone can experience. And it brings with it a gentle peace that is full of power. The more one is open to experience it- the more powerful it becomes and the more uplifting it is to ones being. Its power creates magic and big faces (smiles) with ease and grace. It flows through the soul in man. (Some call the super conscious mind) It gives the will power strength and the heart peace. It is eternal. JUST IS!
The next level is the emotional love. Emotional love is not unlike spiritual however the peace and strength it offers is shallow. It brings happiness but no true magic. It gives joy but without grace and without ecstasy. Harmony yes, but spontaneous MAGIC? NO. This level of love is of the subconscious mind and creates memories with this level of love re-experienced or felt upon recall. This love lasts for a lifetime.
The third level of love is the mental. It is of the will power. It is duty bound and difficult. To feel true happiness at this level of love is actually impossible because it is from the head… not the heart. Therefore not attached to the spirit in man. There can be contentment with this level of love since the will in man can find satisfaction in fulfilling duties. Satisfaction can bring peace to the mind but not the heart. This level of love is of the conscious mind. Memories are satisfying but never really felt from the heart as true joy… only satisfaction. From the Will, this love lasts as long as ones memory.
The lowest level of love is naturally the physical. Sex “without” a higher felt love is the lowest form of love, filled only with physical pleasure. Sex in the rain or snow or anywhere physically stimulating adds strength or power to the physical sensations. Invigorating? YES! Memorable? YES! Yet it is of the physical senses and is short lived after orgasm. Since this love is felt in the BODY ONLY, it’s lasting power ends shortly after orgasm.
Naturally- sex with the addition of any of the HIGHER levels of Love is closer to magic, but true magical love does not require sex, “although it is a most divinely beautiful addition.” MOST DIVINE!
In a true marriage of the universe or God, the emotional love two people experience is raised to the spiritual level…. Eternally. (Magic will normally happen before sex happens or at least at the same time.)
Magic just happens, because it JUST IS. The TWO SOULS UNITE AS ONE.
It is as eternal as heaven itself. It brings a piece of heaven to earth.
Two people married at this level of love radiate a light together that touches all those in tune with their vibrations at all levels of love and life. Life will be hard, yet they wont be each other’s problem. Truly this couple is “In Love”.
Added to the above it this truth. “Every person has the capacity to love at different levels.” It is easy to explain this by an example of comparing ones capacity to love with a light bulb.
Love compared to a Light Bulb
1- Spiritual For the 300 “plus” watt bulbs
2- Emotional For the 100 – 300 watt bulbs
3- Mental For the 60 – 100 watt bulbs
4- Physical For the 25 – 60 watt bulbs

When a couple unite, and they are not compatible with the amount of Love they can give it is most ugly.
Typically this is the scenario
One party is capable of 300 watt plus easily. They (due to their giving nature) are attracted to a 25 watt person. They for some reason believe they will be able to show them a higher way to live. The 25 watt person is attracted to the 300 watt person, not because they are in love with the person; rather they are attracted to a love they do not know.
In this situation, the 300-watt person gives and gives… always giving second chances for mistakes made and constant forgiveness for lack of respect and appreciation shown. Eventually the 300-watt person burns out and has nothing more to give. They become disillusioned and pessimistic of finding a magical relationship… after all they say to themselves “ I have given so much why can’t they change and see”. Then they say… “Maybe I have simply not tried hard enough.”
Sadly they often go from one abusive relationship to another. That is if they do find the courage to leave the first one.
The 25-watt person, who is in love with LOVE, becomes nothing but a parasite to the 300-watt person and an endless cycle of unhappiness is sure to continue for the both of them.
Compare this to the light bulbs.
Place a 300 watt bulb in a room… add a 25 watt bulb and there will be NO DIFFERENCE…. But add a 300 watt with the 300 watt and you double the light given.
Add a 300- watt bulb to a 25-watt bulb in a room, and the 25 watt- bulb will be drowned out. The light from the 25 watt- bulb will be lost. But again add a 25 with a 25 and you will again double the light.
By this example it is easy to see why it is BEST for BOTH people to find another similar in their capacity to love.
Plus, if you are in a relationship that is not balanced in the capacity to love, simply END this type of relationship before one party burns. The other wont grow in this situation anyway so quit trying. “When the levels of love are so vastly different.” It will NEVER work, even if values and goals are the some! The capacity to love has to also be the same or it is not worth the effort.
Funny thing is, two 25- watt people together, by doubling their light will BOTH experience magic. Why? Because they will “both” experience the brighter (double) love.
In conclusion, find another with the capacity to love at the same degree as you can. Respect and appreciation will be a two way street ON THE SAME LEVEL… thus neither party will “burn out”
True magic can happen, be it at a 25- watt level or a 300-watt level, when both people are THEIR TOGETHER. True magic will produce Peace, Joy, Laugher, and all aspects of the magical experience of truly being IN LOVE.
Now- in the spirit of humor, I’m single at the present and I’m willing to start a relationship at the 4th level and we’ll work our way up. LOL
