When it comes to Understanding the Definition of True Love let’s Dive Deep into some Spiritual Texts and Scientific Studies…
They say LOVE is the “universal language,” however, there are a lot of different opinions of what love is all about. Hollywood can easily seduce us with a version of love, which always promises the happy ending. Upon further investigation, we will find conversations about this four letter word can become confusing and controversial, depending on the definitions found in different resources. Seems this “universal language” is defined according to one’s level of consciousness.
Perhaps, because according to Dr. David Hawkins, M.D. Ph.D., less than .4% of the world’s population will ever experience the real definition of TRUE love. Therefore if, as humans, we aren’t having the experience of love, how can we begin to define it?
Therefore, let’s start by diving into the definition of true love found within the “Foundation For Inner Peace”…A Course in Miracles. ACIM is a text that calibrates at the second highest level of consciousness just before enlightenment.
~ True Love is One~
Perhaps you think that different kinds of love are possible. Perhaps you think there is a kind of love for this, a kind for that; a way of loving one, another way of loving still another. LOVE IS ONE. It has no separate parts and no degrees; no kinds nor levels, no divergencies, and no distinctions. IT IS LIKE ITSELF, throughout. It never alters with a person or a circumstance. It is the Heart of God, and also of His Son.
For now, let’s wander off this path for just a minute to consider the definition of true love from more of a scientific view. Take a look at the Relaxed Relationship compass below. Specifically, level four.

An individual who has integrated a level 4 consciousness is one who operates from a state of “Being.” Join our FREE COURSE to learn more about the 4 levels of a relationship and how this information is put together or take a quick view at our Relationship Compass.
It’s important to note, this changeless state of “Being-ness” is what is required of us actually to experience this elusive, benign life-view.
Love’s meaning is obscure to anyone who thinks that love can change. He does not see that changing love must be impossible. And thus he thinks that he can love at times, and hate at other times. He also believes that love can be bestowed on one, and yet remain itself although it is withheld from others. To believe these things of love is not to understand it. ~A Course in Miracles
The Relaxed Relationships Community has been meeting during the past several years, and it has become evident, to all of us attending, that we do not understand love..but are we willing to do what it takes to have love? Furthermore, we have become aware that to claim this higher level of consciousness means that we must “see,” or more accurately BE love…NO MATTER WHAT! We must BE love when it comes to our actions (and thoughts) of every person of our past, and not just the one conveniently in front of us now. And today, when we are willing to say “I love you,” we must remember that tomorrow will come when we are let down, and it is in this perfect moment we must respond naturally with who we are . . . we must BE love.
The Four Letter Word of Dating and Relationships
On a personal note; I am committed and immersed in the process of BEING my highest Self every day as level four and the experience of revelation is felt more consistent and constant. It activates through the process of what I choose to believe and experience while in the present moment. My knee-jerk reaction to things not going my way used to produce fits of anger, scorn, and blame.
You see, it is always when my Beloved does something that doesn’t appear to be “right” that I have to choose to see the perfection anyway (it’s not always easy). But when I do and ALLOW myself to feel the TRUTH of who HE IS, in this moment, I experience the revelation. The reality of my highest Self. The Oneness. The unconditional love.
Furthermore, in a challenging moment, it must begin as a deliberate thought (or more like a questioning of truth). From here it moves into accepting everything as it is (this is experienced as the emotion of forgiveness – level 3). In addition, everything seems to “melt” together which produces heat/energy in my heart. I can feel the reverence flowing through my body. In and around me. It is all encompassing with the knowingness of a loving God orchestrating the entire operation so that I can experience my truest Self, which is love.
We often believe that we can only experience true love once we find our ONE SOUL MATE. I invite you to challenge your thoughts around this way of thinking. In order to open the gates to discovering love.

This state of “Being-ness” that doesn’t change when in the presence of a challenging situation (or person) is the basis for which we strive to “become.” Furthermore, this stage of “becoming” is what takes place as we learn to integrate the pattern found within level 3 of the Relaxed Relationship Compass, Trust, willingness, forgiveness, and understanding is the process of BECOMING what we are. A BEING of love, unconditional, non-judgmental, and limitless. Discover the process of “becoming” through one of our Relaxed Relationship’s Workshops.
Your good intentions neither please nor displease God. God simply waits for your return to heaven, for your acceptance of your birthright, for you to be who you are. ~ A Course of Love
One more thing. . .
Think about the purr of a cat,
the wag of a dog’s tail,
or the song of a bird.
All three of these instances happen with no effort from the cat, dog, and bird. It’s just what they do, and it’s what they are. Would it surprise you to know that all of these lovely attributes vibrate at the frequency of 500 which is the consciousness level of love.
If you achieve the faintest glimmering of what love means today, you have advanced in the distance without measure and in time beyond the count of years to your release. ~A Course in Miracles
