Quote Wednesday – Levine

29 Aug

Quote Wednesday is back.  I didn’t mean to take a break, but with the medical issues, it just seemed to be too much of an effort.  My brain was so fried with the worrying and uncertainty and pain that I just couldn’t read much less write.  But I’m back and trolling my old high school quote notebook for inspiration.  Yes, I have one of those.  Actually I have two high school to college quote notebooks.  I thought these would be great resources when I don’t have a new weekly quote find.  Now, on to the quote…

Love is not what we become, but what we already are. — Stephen Levine

What does it mean to love?  How do you love?  Is it something we aspire or already possess?  Interesting questions.  Might I suggest that we already possess the ability to love and a way to love inside of us.  We must bring it out to the forefront to be successful in loving someone.  Relatedly, we cannot change to love and we cannot change others to love  We must strive to find someone to love completely and someone who loves us completely.  I would be lying if I didn’t want to change a few things about J, but that must not be my aim.  I must accept and love him as he is.  Just as he must accept me, quirks and all…
