The first love is the love of nature. Flowers, plants, insects and birds.
The second love is the love of animals: pets, dogs, cats and all living creatures.
The third love is the love of humans, people, organisations, partner and children.
The fourth love is the love of spirit.
Beware of corruption: you must not confuse yourself. You must ask: “what is Love ?”
Love is what you have for a dead thing. You can’t hold on to it. You can’t miss it. You can’t control it. You can’t want to protect it. It’s like the love for a god or Buddha – intangible and infinite. It starts with a leaf.
