Another way to talk about layers of love is as varieties of self-love.
I love how I feel when I connect with someone.
I love the human wholeness of the other as I love my own human wholeness. As I find genuine love and appreciation for more of myself, of this human self and these human experiences, I find the same for others.
As there is a recognizing of all as God, there is Self-love of all and everything.
The most beautiful form is perhaps when love is there in spite of our personality. When I find love through recognition and empathy, and love of someone as the play of God, even as my personality does not like the person very much.
And the most deep and profound love is when these all come together. I love how I feel when I connect with the person. I love the human wholeness of the other as I love the human wholeness of myself. And through recognizing all as God, there is Self-love for all and one and whatever happens.
