Love and Liberty.

The messenger.

Q: Are we meant to be with one person our entire lives, or are we meant to share the love? Many people, many religions and many societies believe we should each find a mate and stay together “’till death do us part”. However,  is this outlook being true to our human nature?

A: I start with the contention that the institution of marriage and consequently the accepted, perhaps subconsciously, ‘institution’ of partnership in modern times, devolve from man made – yes, man made – religio/social standards of the past. As I see it, each soul is different and has different experiences to meet in each life with different people, with each experience requiring a different time factor as well as a multitude of other lessons. This is all karma and it has of necessity to take its course, and by take its course I mean just that, as its course varies in each situation. Therefore, to adhere rigidly to a man made time frame is interfering with what is needed.
However, and this is very important, in all relationships the underlying value is love – love of another in every way that love manifests in Earthly life – the testing ground of our spirituality. In all relationships, including those created for the continuation of the human race, it is important that one does one’s very best. This may, on the surface, seem easy but we cannot fool ourselves because “doing one’s best” means just that – and best does not come in shades!
I have tried to encapsulate a vast reservoir of possibilities into a fundamental concept from which various situations may be viewed.
