Just be open minded and look at what is happening within you.

How you feel and react to your spouse and his/her behaviour.

Just observe it all . . .

Then say to yourself:
“Dear Spouse << fill in his or her name here >>, I find love in your perfection, just as you are right now.”

“No matter what you do or do not do, truth is that we are one.”

“I find Great Love in your perfection”.

Repeat often till your heart awakens to love for yourself and for your spouse.
Really feel it!
Watch for changes in you, in your spouse and in your marriage.

True change begins with you!
