Question: If a husband and wife are reflections of each other’s characteristics, they are practically doubles apparently, possessing similar desires and a natural feeling of closeness to each other. How can they advance together in the best way?
Answer: That is also how they must progress. If that is how they are connected to each other, it is up to them to feel how they help each other and advance together. Conflicts are constantly created between them and greater and greater possibilities for attachment.
