What are the three
kinds of love?

Bangalore, India

There are three kinds of love: the love that comes out of charm, the love that comes out of familiarity, and Divine love.

The love that comes out of charm does not last long. Out of unfamiliarity you are attracted, then once you become familiar, you quickly lose attraction and boredom sets in, like most love marriages. This love may diminish and bring along with it fear, uncertainty, insecurity, and sadness.

The love that comes out of familiarity grows. You are more comfortable with an old friend who is a familiar person, rather than with a new person. But this love has no thrill, no enthusiasm, no fire in it.

Divine love supersedes all other love. Divine love is ever new. The closer you come, the more charm and depth there is. Divine love has comfort, familiarity and enthusiasm. There is never boredom, and it keeps you on your toes.

Worldly love can be like an ocean, yet an ocean has a bottom. Divine love is like the sky - limitless, infinite. From the bottom of the ocean, soar into the vast sky.
