So if my partner is less conscious than myself, how can I cope with the difference?✶
As you would with any other less conscious family members. Interact sparingly but meaningfully (sparingly doesn't mean shallowly). The less time you spend with your partner, the more important it is to make your together times memorable.
- Don't assume that less awakened means less important in the pageantry of life. The silences between the notes of life's symphony are just as important as the harmonious interaction of tones.
- Don't try and adopt the illusion that your marriage should resemble that of the way married people interact amongst humanity. Your spouse chose to be with a godbeing, not another human. It should be obvious that you are not going to behave according to the dictates of social conditioning. Even though he or she may not know that their spouse is a godbeing, you should at all times remember who you are. You would fail in your mission here on Earth, if you forfeit your authenticity by trying to live up to the expectations of others.
