Yes, this is quite an unfortunate perspective of marriage.
There’s a Latin word, consonantia, defined musically as: all notes in their perfect distinctness are yet blended in one…
I find this definition befitting in marriage, as well.
There is harmony and beauty in creating something more than merely the sum of two parts.
â€œâ€¦the agony of the separate self, relieved of the inherent torture called time and the gruesome tragedy called space.â€
Time and space themselves are not the torture or tragedy.
They are gifts. We have set the trap and enslaved ourselves
We need to move beyond â€œthe edge of the nondual revelationâ€
and â€œbe relieved of the burden of our sleep-walking dreamsâ€
to see that.
There are many roads on and names for this journey,
perhaps another is â€œLove.â€
