Your partner is able to help you progress along your life path, just in the very way that they naturally think and communicate. Reading books or enjoying them on tape together is both fun and educational, as is attending lectures or documentary films and discussing them afterward. There is a focus on learning and communicating between you; you both instinctively understand that they, especially, have much to teach and reveal to you.
You also realize that the particular mental energy created between you can be used for a specific and beneficial purpose. Your intellectual and literary ideas are important to both of you, and you spend a lot of time thinking about and discussing these issues. You might love sitting around the dinner table, talking about books, or lying in bed and debating your philosophical theories. Whether you recognize it or not, you're both learning about yourselves even as you know each other better. There has been a familiarity between you from the start, in your conversations and the kinds of ideas you each occupy your minds with -- you find that you have like minds, and you're instinctively comfortable with each other, even while your interaction sparks excitement in both of you. Over time, you likely realize that the subjects you discuss together are even more important than you realized, as they help to form your lives and your paths into the future.
