‘You have loved enough, now let me be the lover.’ You could say that God is speaking to you – or the cosmos, or your lover. It just means, like, forget it. Lean back and be loved by all that is already loving you. It is your effort at love that is preventing you from experiencing it.
From “Leonard Cohen’s Thoughts On You Have Loved Enough,” a Ten New Songs promotional video at LeonardCohen.com (no longer online).
Leonard Cohen – You Have Loved Enough
I swept the marble chambers,
But you sent me down below.
You kept me from believing
Until you let me know:
That I am not the one who loves
It’s love that seizes me.
