A wedding is a very special occasion. A couple deciding to live together forever till they live. Make a family, with children who may become leaders of tomorrow in their own fields. As the time goes forward, weddings are losing their special place. Who knows when the newly weds will file for divorce? Earlier it was not so simple. Divorces were not looked at as a possibility to be exercised easily. How does one wish a newly wedded couple?
What are wishes? What is the role of wishes in a couple’s life? Why do we wish them a happy life together? Let us examine. The first role of a wish is to join the couple in their happiness. Share the happiness. “Yes, I am very happy for both of you. I feel very happy myself on this beautiful occasion. I wish you a lovely life together. Please enjoy your life together. Fight your battles together and share your fruits of labor together. Please bring new children in this world. Make them happy citizens of a happy world.” We have such thoughts and convey our thoughts to the couple in many words. Sometimes, it so happens that watching everybody wishing the couple, we all become mechanical in our wishes. The warmth gets lost. The words lose the deeper meaning and become more of a ceremony to be finished as soon as possible.
We can avoid this happening. When you attend a wedding next, look at the couple carefully. Imagine their future life together. The children, the middle age, and growing old together till death separates them. Imagine the whole life that they will live together. Imagine the pains and the pleasures of their life. Ignore looking at the decorations, the guests and everything else. Focus only upon the couple and you will find a transformation taking place in your thoughts. After this your wishes will be spoken from the heart and your wishes will truly impact the lives of the couple. Make your wishes help the couple in every way. Hundreds of such heart spoken wishes will bring forward such a change that the couple will surely have a beautiful life. Wishes have power. We may not be able to understand that power. But if wishes are made from the heart, that power can destroy many obstacles. Please use that power, because you have it.
