Sacred Marriage … by Alice ..

Revised; originally published on 1 March 2015 

Dear Ones,

Some feel that the purpose of marriage is to secure wealth, status, sexual expression, the romantic love of a Twin Flame. Or to secure children to care for oneself in one’s old age. Children to, in a sense, perpetuate one’s own egoic expression in this timeline …

There are so many games that the world plays! Some express themselves in marriage through one-upmanship. Who cheated on who the most. Whom to hate, whom to fear, whom to be jealous of, whom to gossip about, whom to belittle, whom to brag about, and so on.

I’ve always held that the purpose of marriage is to bring a man and woman closer to God, through selfless service to each other. By seeing in each other’s eyes God’s grace and love in human form. I’ve always loved the Sikh wedding song Lavan, which beautifully expresses this notion.

Article: “Anand Karaj: Wedding Ceremony,” http://fateh.sikhnet.com/sikhnet/sikhism.nsf/d9c75ce4db27be328725639a0063aecc/8df731d6d87fe832872565b7007b3386/$FILE/Anand%20Karaj.pdf … and surf down to “Lavan”

It is this notion that takes us through the bitterness of children leaving home, of divorce, of the death of a beloved spouse. Of all the suffering that life on Earth is heir to.

For the Beloved is seen in the eyes of the beloved spouse only for that precious moment, and then we must find our Beloved in other eyes. With our own newly opened eyes. In the sigh of the breeze. In the warmth of the sunlight. In the gentle patter of rain.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
