Earthly, Family & Intimate Loves

From Spiritual teaching, I was taught there are three types of love on earth. They are Earthly love, Family love and Intimate love. The three loves complete the cycle of life for spiritual happiness.

They are very logically defined and I believe it is worth thinking about. First is the Earthly Love which is given to others. As the saying goes, "Happiness is to see others happy." We should offer our unconditional love to the world. By doing so, we give more than we should receive and it is almost like a one way traffic. It is tiring and not all are prepared to constantly give with sincerity.

The second is the Family Love which we whole heartily give to our surrounding family members. At the same times, they in turn would also offer their love and care towards you, when you would feel the feeling of acceptance again. The support of family love is important because they offer you encouragement and motivation which you may not gain from the earthly love.

The third is the Intimate love which I consider to be paramount important. It is an intimate relationship between a man and a woman who truly loves one another. The giving and sharing of feeling and understanding allows the couple to be united. It is the most intense affection of the three loves because it allows physical contact when contentment and sexual satisfaction can be fulfilled.

To face the challenges of life isn't easy, when there are so many obstacles and problems that we have to encounter. There are many who are willing to serve the outside world with love but without those love from your supportive family, you might be drained away with your energy quite easily. For those who are even more ambitious to rich to the top, earthly and family loves are not enough to sustain your enthusiasm and drive. You need the intimate love to strengthen your confident to the highest level. If you look around this world, those who are super successful and powerful have the completion of these three loves combine together. This is fact of life that we have to accept.
