Do you love your wife?

The Great Way Is All About Love

Whether we choose call it The Great Way, or the Tao, or Grace, or Universal Love, or Merging with the Divine, or Surrendering to Allah, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that we understand and practice with The Great Way and its implications, both for everyday and for ultimate meaning.

The Great Way tells us to be here, now, present and observing; to be here, now, wholeheartedly, with judging, without preferences, without expectations, without opinions, without speculating or supposing or surmising. Not without discerning, but without preferring things to be other than what they are.

The Great Way is a process, a becoming, and it asks us to be in its becoming. No easy task.

When we are approaching The Way; when we are with The Way, or when we are The Way, we are observers, witnesses without karmic impediment or thrust, of whatever is in front of us. There is no desire for it to be anything other than what it is.

Do you love your spouse with wanting them to be anything other than what they are, in this moment and in every moment? The Great Way suggests if you do anything else, you don't love them. Do you love your spouse for exactly who they are in each and every moment, without judgment, without expectations, with hesitation? The Great Way suggests anything else would not be loving them. No easy matter.
