This is the ancient, philosophical interpretation And those who only know the non-platonic love have no need to talk of tragedy. In such love there can be no sort of tragedy. ― Leo Tolstoy,
Platonic love is a special emotional and spiritual relationship between two people who love and admire one another because of common interests, a spiritual connection, and similar worldviews. It does not involve any type of sexual involvement. Most friendships begin as either personal or professional.
It is named after Greek philosopher Plato, though the philosopher never used the term himself. Platonic love as devised by Plato concerns rising through levels of closeness to wisdom and true beauty from carnal attraction to individual bodies to attraction to souls, and eventually, union with the truth.

Seek the wisdom
that will untie your knot.
Seek the path that
demands your whole being.

Wisdom doesn’t come
from speaking.It comes from listening.

I believe religion gives us an art of living and initiates our journey towards spiritualism. Our first brush with our own religion is just like going to schooling and learning many basic things.
Religion has a strong impact of the life of people, so its easy to teach them right-wrong or good-bad with the help of religion. I am obviously talking purely about religion on its own, not the hypocritical, political, divisive ways in which it is often used.
Spirituality is deep wisdom (inner voice / inner wisdom) and might be like getting higher education. Spirituality enables us to respect all religions and all living beings. It provides the wisdom to work for a greater cause and to understand that all religions are path directed to the same universal power.
तिमिर गया रवि देखते, कुमति गयी गुरु ज्ञान |
सुमति गयी अति लोभाते, भक्ति गयी अभिमान ||
when the sun arises
and ignorance goes away
by the Guru’s wisdom (gyan).
Wisdom is lost because of greed,
and devotion is lost because of ego.
~~ Kabir ❤
