Is there such a thing as a soul mate?
If there is such a thing as a soul mate, should we assume that one is instantly recognized as such? Does the meeting of one’s soul mate resemble infatuation, which by its very nature precludes the depth and power of the attraction that makes meeting your soul-mate special and unique?! When individuals have learned to take heart in and find personal power in their dreams of the good, the true and the beautiful – and have stayed on that path for a sufficient period of time with a sufficient degree of earnestness and strength of purpose – are they actually creating their own “lucky” encounter with their cosmically-ordained significant other? In other words, does true love come when we are truly ready?
In my opinion, the average “Jane” and “Joe” learning to live together with a sharing of their most sublime ideas and a sufficient dose of earthy realism can make the rarified reaches of soul-matedom realizable in this present life, for does not the spiritual satisfaction that comes with finding one’s mate at that level come only with the embrace of our relation to the world of the everyday and this good earth on which we live?
