The Ancient Greeks’ 6 Words for Love

Ancient Greek has four distinct words for 'love':

Agápe, Éros, Storge and Philía.

Agápe is unconditional compassion for all existence.

Éros is passionate 'love' or lust - the sensual erotic desire of sexual possession of another.

Storge is familial loyalty.

Philía is virtuous loyalty displayed through affectionate companionship over time.

Philía has four children: two sets of twins ~ !

Each set of twins have been poloraized into the duality of good and evil.

Two forms of inwardly expressed "compassion" in Philía suggest two forms of outwardly expressed "compassion" in Philía.

Feelings vacillate.

One can be enamored and awed by self.

One can be enamored and awed by another.

One can care about oneself or one can hate oneself.

One can care about another or one can hate another.

Narcissists, even though they gaze longing into the pool, can never actually see their own reflection.

Narcissists are blind to their own actual self because they have hidden that self away behind the mask they wear.

Although they believe they have compassion for their own selves they stand upon on a thinly veiled fear of death, skating on the thin ice of not-life, that can crumble at any moment leaving them falling down a rabbit hole while scrambling to climb out.

An outwardly expressed projection of Philía by a narcissist will appear to be the real deal but it will not be as the narcissist wears a mask.

This is when Philía's evil twin, the one that lives on the other side of the mirror, rears her ugly head and strikes like a Cobra!

Do not expect the rule of recoprocity to apply to the narcissist or the psychopath !

The Greeks recognized two forms of self-love in Philía.

In its negative form philautia is the selfishness with wants of pleasure, fame, and wealth beyond needs.

Narcissus, who adores with his own reflection, exemplifies this kind of self-adoration.

In its positive form philautia refers to proper pride in oneself or self-love in which you feel secure in yourself and thus you will have plenty of empathy for others.

Many modern Christians believe that Agápe entails self-sacrifice.

Agápe does require self-sacrifice but not as commonly perceived.

Agápe requires self-sacrifice of the ego and a release of agency.

The Agápe of the Creator and Sustainer is seen most readily by men in Creation.

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
