Paris Talks by -'Abdu'l-Bahá- 1 Para

There are four kinds of love. The first is the love that flows from God to man; it consists of the inexhaustible graces, the Divine effulgence and heavenly illumination. Through this love the world of being receives life. Through this love man is endowed with physical existence, until, through the breath of the Holy Spirit-- this same love-- he receives eternal life and becomes the image of the Living God. This love is the origin of all the love in the world of creation. (180:1)
