"With real knowledge (gnosis), you know from experience that relationships with child and spouse are not merely of this life, they go far beyond." ..........You also know your spouse will die; there is freedom in that knowledge.

From meditation-without-exertion-how-to-conquer-afflictions

This excerpt describes the need for renunciation. We believe that this life is all there is, when in reality we exist in a continuum and plurality of different incarnations. Since the soul continues after death, and that our meeting with loved ones is certain, we should not be attached to our present circumstances.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
