“Is This Love?”

a few quotes from dr. b

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”      —Anaïs Nin

“I’ve always loved this quote of Anaïs’s, yet for me, it’s not expansive enough. Some of us are as emotionally tight as a bud, yet others are as emotionally loose as water. The bud and the water require different paths toward personal freedoms.” —Dr. Becker

FromMore Time Ins, Not More Time Outs

“I know, without reservation, that most parents love their children very much, and only want to do “what is right for them.” They do not consciously intend to bully or otherwise damage their children. But sometimes they do. The good news is—we can educate parents!” —Dr. Becker

“We are all but human suffers, afflicted with our own unconscious agendas.” —Dr. Becker

“… the unconscious, to which you are inextricably and divinely tethered, is a source of unremitting guidance. It’s your prototypical parent.” —Dr. Becker

From: Dying To Live: Love Stories

For most of my patients, whether they come to me as children or adults, in any manifestation of gender, color, or religion, or if they arrive at my door as an individual, part of a couple, or as a member of the family—under all the manifestations of their symptomology and stripped away from diagnostic labels—what I find are souls screaming for love. In their souls, perhaps unlabeled and still unconscious, they know the difference between eyeball-to-eyeball, heart-to-heart real love and wrongly motivated, convoluted love, on which they are often choking to death.” —Dr. Becker

“This is an extraordinary moment: we are poised to change our legacies of disrespect and devaluation of others and flip the switch from a non-caring majority to a caring one that honors the sacredness of each individual. I can hear the naysayers now, “She’s so unrealistic. So much evil runs through this world, it’ll never change.” I say, “We are the world.” —Dr. Becker

“I know experientially, and therefore deeply, that tragedy can galvanize goodness. Sustaining it, well, that can take a bit of work.”—Dr. Becker

“Every time I feel terribly absent from my life, and think that all I was, am, or had is lost, I am driven inside myself. There, inside me, pushed into the turbulent seas of life way beyond matter, I find the most awesome, trustworthy resource, and I must keep trying to share its magnificent power with as many as I am able to. “ —Dr. Becker
