The partnership in this movie is one in which expectations are constantly being undone. To the ego it is jolting when a partner keeps disappearing and in this movie it can happen at any time. Any sense of desiring a normal (special) relationship leads to disappointment and the only way to look upon it all is from the perspective of opening up to a love that transcends time, space and bodies entirely.
Time is simultaneous. The main character is moving through time and experiences different parts of his life in the dream and his Holy Relationship. His wife has to learn to forgive and not to have any expectations whatsoever for spending time with her husband. There are no exceptions to the forgiveness. Wedding days are no more special than other days and at the end it needs to be seen that you are always joined with Spirit, beyond the form and appearances of bodies.
