…for this is the way of all real love. The lover will utterly and completely despoil himself of everything, even his very self, because of the one he loves. He cannot bear to be clothed in anthing save the thought of his beloved.

And this is not a passing fancy. No, he desires always and forever to remain unclothed in full and final self-forgetting. This is love’s labour; yet, only he who experiences it will really understand. This is the meaning of :

“Anyone who wishes to love me let him forsake himself”

 It is as if He were to say:

“A man must despoil himself of his very self if he sincerely desires to be clothed in me, for I am the full flowing garment of eternal and unending love”.
