There are people who practice Gnosis in secret, and do not impose any spirituality on their spouse, or expect any spirituality from them. This is a form of sacrifice, and an expression of love and respect for the spouse. Personally, I find this to be even more beautiful than a couple who is in agreement in every way. It is not hard to love someone who agrees with you. But to love someone who disagrees with you, even mocks you — that is not easy, but with real love, conscious love, it is possible, and quite beautiful to see.

Love has its most beautiful expression in sacrifice for the beloved.

There are many couples who love each other in spite of differing views. It is possible to love each other, and allow one another opposing points of view. Just as we want to be respected for our views, we have to offer the same respect to others.

Transform that situation as you would with any ordeal: discover your shortcomings, and replace them with virtuous behaviors. For example, if you feel impatient, find out what in you feels that, and learn instead to be patient. If you want to be understood, offer understanding to others. If you want to be accepted, offer acceptance to others. In this manner, we empower the consciousness, and cut off harmful ways of thinking, feeling, and acting.

Most of all, find what is causing the conflict in yourself, and comprehend that. It is not really about him: it is about a conflict between the reality of your situation and desires in your mind.

Words of advice from the Sufi-Christian initiate-mystic Kahlil Gibran, from his Prophet:
Then said Almitra, "Speak to us of Love."

And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:

When love beckons to you follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep.

And when his wings enfold you yield to him,

Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him,

Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,

So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth. Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.

He threshes you to make you naked.

He sifts you to free you from your husks.

He grinds you to whiteness.

He kneads you until you are pliant;

And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,

Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,

Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, I am in the heart of God."

And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

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
