I read a legend the other day, it completely blew my mind. According to this legend, humans were once very powerful. They had double of everything we have now, like four hands, four legs, double power, and so on. When the supreme power saw this, he was afraid that humans will take over the universe and have too much power in their hands. So, to lessen their power, he divided each of them into two parts, so that they could spend their lives searching for their other half, to become complete.
This story got me thinking more about marriage. That’s when I came across this logic: They say that marriage is like a ladder. The two long sticks, the pillars are the two individuals on their own. They can stand own their own, but can’t support the weight of anything else.
As they begin to get closer and closer, the wooden rods start coming in the scene, bonding them together. But wait! If the rods are too far apart, it will be very difficult to climb it up, and if they are way too close, it is almost impossible to climb up.
So the wisdom goes like this- Two essentials of a marriage are BONDING , without which, a marriage is nothing. If there is true love and bonding, the partners will stick together. Even if there are 100 reasons to leave, they will find one reason to hold on…. and letting your partner have their SPACE, in a right amount. Too much will take them far away,too little will suffocate you both .These two are equally important for a good and strong relationship. So when the ladder is good and strong, climbing up to success becomes easy!
Are we forgetting something? Yes! Have you ever seen a ladder stand without a support to lean on? No! The most important thing is that the ladder needs a strong support against which it stands, and that, comes only with The Source, and it is The Source of all life which is the life support of all relationships.
Everyone you meet has a part to play in your story. And while some may take a chapter, others a paragraph, and most will be no more than scribbled notes in the margins, someday, you’ll meet someone who will become so integral in your life, you’ll put their name in the title.
