From a state of No Love, we wander onto the Heart Wheel experiencing different states of love, with the ultimate goal being to spiral in to the center, which is the highest state of love, that of Unconditional Loving Kindness.
I divided love into 4 states:
- Loveless – The absence of love
- Romantic – Sexual love for lovers, significant others, and spouses.
- Platonic – Non-sexual love for friends and family.
- Spiritual – Altruistic, unconditional love, loving kindness, and being in service.
The states of love can overlap. For example, it is possible for someone to have romantic, platonic, and spiritual love towards a significant other. In fact, I believe that experiencing the first three states of love with another person would be the ultimate in a relationship.
