“Love possesses not nor would it be possessed.”
There are many kinds of love, but I think the rarest and purest kind is anything but possessive. It is that love which is most liberating, which is most life affirming, and in which we both transcend ourselves and are renewed.
That is the kind of love the Greeks called “agape” and that Jesus apparently believed caused us to be “born again”.
Such love most often comes as an unexpected breeze — and like a breeze it refreshes. Like a breeze, it seldom lasts for long. And like a breeze, it may return at any time.
