We are challenged to expand the Love list in our lives to authentically embrace the many people we meet, bringing our Unique Self to each encounter.
“Anyplace where you are regarded only as a function, where your name is not known and honored, you are a slave. Anytime you regard another as a mere instrument in your design, you become a slave master and an oppressor. To be a lover is to know the name. It can be the name of the waiter, the taxi driver, of your accountants’ son or of the mailman’s wife.
By remembering the name, you become a lover.”
from The Mystery of Love
