transcend

butterflyBy holding another in our love, we are becoming like God in that we are remembering the seed of God in ourselves at the very instant we are seeing the fully ripened fruitfulness of the other in God. In this way, the other begins to become our very self.

~ Donald Sheehan

This quote comes from a phenomenal piece written by Donald Sheehan, Dostoevsky and Memory Eternal: An Eastern Orthodox Approach to the Brothers Karamazov.
