Where there is will for companionship obstacles are ignored.
“People don’t lack power, but will” (Victor Hugo). There where there is will all obstacles and weaknesses are surmounted. This is also the case of marriage: where there is will for companionship obstacles are ignored. Our will “burns” them all. You take the decision and you take it easy, as the paralytic.
On the contrary, where there is not will for living together many obstacles appear (covered before by the will of living together), that build as a wall impossible to surmount. You feel asphyxiated, constrained. And if you feel like this, what can the paralytic say?
