The reason why relationships are so hard to maintain is simply because of the infinite
complexity due to the metaphysical and alchemical structure which constitutes the
human body and mind. The human body and mind in its conglomerated state are highly
unstable; not only due to its internal rendering and thus change, but also because any
and all outer elements will affect the structure in one way or another. The only way to
maintain a relationship is either complete self consciousness in all participants or
absolute blind faith in each other; which are the extreme opposites. This because the
most minuscule action could have the most fatal effect on the relationship, since the
mind of any human being is absolutely unpredictable due to its unstable nature. This is
probably why the human version of a relationship are so rare among other animals.
Only a relationship where all the participants are completely self conscious are able
to overcome this since they are aware of these factors and thus able to act accordingly
when changes occurs. Because not only are they aware of the unstable nature of the
human mind, but also that change is inevitable. Those who operate on blind faith will
experience the problems but they will not know how or why. They might overcome it
by sheer power of will, but that requires tremendous amounts of faith; which most
likely is why a large number of marriages today do not last very long since the faith part
has been left out almost completely in favor for the ritualistic jurisdictional and religious
mumbo jumbo that comes with a marriage.
