Earth's layers is something we have been taught in School but they could look totally different than what we've been told.
Love and Fear have also lot's of layers. There is the outer layer presented outside our selves with events unfolding on Earth and on the surface on both micro and macro levels. Here we also have family, friends and let's say our closest society.
The other day I encounter something fascinating at work I was approached by an individual who suddenly asked essential questions about religion, energies, if things in life are by chance, purpose of relationship.. etc etc etc..
I did not see that train coming but from what I saw this individual was expanding their consciousness rapidly!! I could see the pain and I could also see the compassion and love.
After having the conversation I realized how many things in peoples lives that have fear attached to them. I've been having similar experiences in life connected with my own fears so I could relate.
There are layers of fear by not being good enough (in school, in sports, at work, as parent), fear of what others might say, fear of being lonely, fear of missing out in life, fear of lack and scarcity. At first glance you might think hey I'm fearless but when you dig deeper you'll find out about fears you did think of before.
There are layers of love/compassion as well, the love for your child, the love for your spouse/partner, the love for your parents, the love for your pet, the kind actions you do towards another being is also love, love for your hobby, love for your friends.
The Greeks had lot's of knowledge about these things and talked about:
Eros - romantic love
Philia - friendly love or also between mentors / mentee, highest version of love without God's influence (kinda) - definitely one by choice and pretty much mutual, good friends kinda thing.
Storge - what you feel for a child or pet.
To delve into this more here is a link to a good article about the Greeks 6 different wordings of love.. and I would say there are more.
When starting to see above we can choose to work with it... or simply let it be where it is. There can always be another choice down the road they never stop. Only you know what to choose in this moment of NOW. The tip of the day would be work with what you an actually influence - your SELF. ;)
As one of my siblings often say.. "Oliver you don't have to analyze everything". This is perfectly true cause I can't don't want to, but I do analyze a lot it's part of myself and my journey I simply can't take that away.
Here is the cool part with what we express.. cause when she says a thing like that she does not mean "everything" literally she means "as much as you do" in the context of analyzing.
