The most enlightened of persons has empathy and compassion for her spouse or life partner. She should nurture, care for and love her spouse yet also be aware that her spouse’s soul is on his own journey and has his own purpose. Sometimes the journey includes watching our spouse make choices that are painful or unwise. Other times that journey includes an early parting from the relationship either by death, divorce or separation.
The more the individual has attached her own purpose, identity, value and worth to her spouse the more she suffers in this life. Sometimes this suffering can become an idol.
We in this life can adopt suffering as an identity and as an honor. This does not have to be so. Feeling pain is human yet Spirit wants us to not live in pain or make it our home due to the attachment to persons or things. When we release ourselves from attachment to things as we wish they were, we miss out on acceptance and peace of things that are.
Being present with our love in the moment… whatever that moment may be… will bring us the greatest fulfillment in our relationship’s journey and in this life. Namaste. ❤️Ann
