"Sometimes another person's energy can feel like excess baggage we can't afford to carry. It's as though we're trying to lift a plane, and too much weight just isn't an option during take-off.
"Once the plane is in the sky, however, the situation can change dramatically. Where it felt before like we couldn't take off if another person was weighing us down, it now begins to feel as though holding a plane in the sky is too big a job for just one person.
"And that's what partners are: two people carrying the same load, two wings on the same plane, two people doing a job that is just too big for one person to do alone. The planet is being bombarded with powerful energy today; people are being given tasks too big, not so much for our physical selves to carry alone, as for one consciousness to carry alone. We need partners to share the emotional and spiritual burdens of our lives, at a time when life itself is being transformed at the very deepest levels. Sometimes you can do all the physical work by yourself, or hire or find others to help you complete it. But at the end of the day, how we long for someone to understand it all with us! When there is mischievous laughter to laugh or painful tears to cry, we long to do that with someone who truly understands the depth of both our laughter and our tears.
"If you're very, very lucky, you have had the experience of being one of two hearts beating in what feels like the same astral body. You use your eyes, and he uses his eyes, but really there is only one being here, with two different bodies to provide optimum functioning in the physical world. Physical separation is experienced, in this situation, as the fantasy and illusion that, in cosmic terms, it actually is. This is an exhilarating space, a sometimes terrifying space, because it is a field beyond the body. The world of enchanted partnership is a whole new world indeed.
"Enchantment is not just a facet of romance, but of a new, emerging planetary consciousness. It is the psychic womb out of which will be born a new humanity. Enchanted partnerships produce enchanted environments, and children who grow up in enchanted environments will forever bear the mark of its magic. They will in turn recreate the world. They will explode the myths of former times. They will receive the inheritance of our endless wealth, of love and satisfaction and peace immeasurable. Their hearts will dilate, and their genes will be altered by an outpouring of spiritual light. They will sing what we sing and they will know what we know. And even when their minds forget, their hearts will always remember."
