Gnostic Question of the Week
What relationship does mercy and being happy in marriage have
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
Many marriages could be truly happy but unfortunately they are not, due to old resentments accumulated in their memories.
If married couples were generous, they would forget the painful past and would live fully; filled with true happiness.
The mind kills and destroys love. Experiences, disagreement, jealousy, etc., when accumulated in our memory, destroy love.
Many resentful wives could be happy if they were generous enough to forget the past and live in the present adoring their husbands.
Many husbands could be truly happy with their wives if they were generous enough to forgive old errors and forget quarrels and unhappy situations accumulated in their memories.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
Many of us would be happy if we forgot the past, if instead of getting stuck in yesterday, we would live this moment enjoying what we have.
We need to learn to have mercy on others, that is a command from the master of masters: “Be merciful, then, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven” (Luke 6:36, 37).
