The Spirit has to find a way to gradually unwind the mind from its fixed self-concepts and limiting comfort zones. The Spirit’s purpose for relationships is letting go of the past, which is the opposite of the ego’s purpose. All relationships are maximal; when they seem to end, it is because they have served their purpose. Holding on to relationships and/or attempting to recreate the past maintains egoic mind patterns, rather than releasing them. Happiness and true innocence cannot be found in special love relationships. Happiness is not in the past; the past is over. It is time to let it go.
