When we love, we can see the Self of all in the faces of those we love. We can remove the limitations of our own egotism. Those who accept this challenge can achieve profound levels of wisdom, serenity, joy, and gratitude. The path of spirituality develops as you learn to love and continually expand that capacity to love from your spouse and family to your community, to your nation, and eventually the entire world.
This inspiring book on relationships will help you understand the dynamic interplay between loving relationships and the path of spirituality. In clear, candid language, Swami Rama presents his vision of the potential that marriage and family life have to help us open our heart, expand our personality, and contribute to our spiritual unfoldment. This invaluable guide devotes itself to one of the most powerful and influential aspects of any person's life: our capacity to love and share ourselves with others. It will assist all that are sincerely striving to develop themselves and their relationships and to fulfill the ultimate purpose of life.
