Congratulations Amanda & Mazik!
Amanda Reno and Mazik Saevitz April 14, 2012
Laura performed Amanda & Mazik’s wedding. What is marriage? According to mythology, it is the reunion of the separated twins. Originally you were one, but when you came to this earth life you become two in the world, looking for your other half. If we live a life of honor, if our hearts and minds are in sync, then we may be blessed with our counterpart. By marrying the right person, we reconstruct the image of God, and that is what a true marriage is.
How do you choose the right person?
Your heart tells you.
Your inner being.
That is the mystery.
You recognize your other self – you feel at home. You then have a witness to your life.
Marriage means the two are now one. Marriage is a relationship. When you make the sacrifice in marriage, you’re sacrificing not to each other but to a unity in the relationship. The Chinese image of the Tao, with the circle containing the dark and light interacting is symbolic of what a marriage is. And that is what you have become when you have married. Marriage is not a simple love affair, it’s an ordeal, and the ordeal is the sacrifice of the ego to a relationship in which two have become one.
May all the angels bless this union!
