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?!
Is there such a thing as a soul mate?
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-mate-dom” 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?
Ah, soulmates. The epitome of love and partnership. In our fast-paced chaotic world, which boasts all sorts of different people, we find ourselves skimming through more relationships than we’d like in order to find that one person who can truly open our locks.
Not just anyone can fulfill you the way your soulmate can. There’s a world of a difference between your soulmate, your heart’s other half and a life partner — a person who lacks the elements to mold perfectly to you. Your soulmate makes you feel entirely whole, healed and intact, like no piece is missing from the puzzle. A life partner, on the other hand, can be a great supporter and long-time companion, but is limited in his or her capacity to enrich your spirit.
Most of us remain in life-partner relationships because we “settle,” for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, we may have a real subconscious fear of being alone. And since we’re biologically designed to fall in love, it’s only natural that we pair up in this world. But we sometimes prolong what are meant to be temporary relationships and mistakenly settle into them for good. There are relationships which must last for a certain period of time to close out a karmic chapter of life, relationships in which we’re meant to have children with our partner but not necessarily remain with them, and relationships which are just plain confusing because a melting pot of emotions doesn’t allow us to see our predestined path.
