Inner love is intelligent & unconditional love, it is beyond intellect, and love has a mutual attraction that is not necessarily towards a woman or a man. Love on a lower level of consciousness is emotional love. Usually, it's reflected through your relationship with your partner, but on a higher level of consciousness, intelligent love guides you within. A mutual attraction can be with your heart, soul, and deepest heart. Your deeper heart is calling you an attraction. It gives you signals and messages to your conscious mind to connect with something deeper.
The mind is saying: “What should I look for? What's going to make me happy? Shall I buy this, shall I go there, shall I travel, shall I meet someone?” The conscious mind usually translates this as “let me look for something,” typically external.
