Looking at a close freind`s marriage falling apart, I ask myself “why?”…
Nobody knows how the love comes and goes, but in a long-term relationships there should be a good reason for love to vanish. My spontaneous answer on the “why” question was the following:
It is easy to love when the heart is open. To keep the heart open is not an easy thing! There are millions of reasons in our daily life that close the heart (bad news, weather, boring work, strange people, etc.). One needs to work on the heart to keep it pure and blossoming. To work hard. And the first step to open the heart is to relax oneself. How often can we really do this?
My point is that people who do not work on themselves , do to not take care of their spiritual and personal development, – such people get bored with themselves and with the life-partner. And the love vanishes… Most of the people I know who DO care about their spiritual well being are in a beautiful, loving and happy relationships.
Can the growth of the both in a couple be the secret of the everlasting love?
