Men and women blithely enter into relationships or marriage, imagining that everything is going to be easy, carefree and agreeable. Then, little by little, they feel themselves boxed in, and the arguments and bickering begin, until they realize that if they want their relationship to work, they will have to make an effort to think less about themselves and more about each other.
What they mistook for a playground is in fact a school where the most important apprenticeship for every human being begins: expanding one’s consciousness.
Do you wonder what this growth in consciousness involves? It means breaking out of one’s small, limited self in order to enter the immense community of beings.
