So, have you met your ‘soul-mate’? If not, have you tried numerous matrimony and dating sites which seem to have hacked the data stored at the Universe server where the soul-mates directory is stored? If only poor souls knew they have to pay in hard cash for a reunion on earth!
And for those who are searching frantically for ‘the one’, this might disappoint you. A soul mate need not be a lover or spouse. It can be a friend, sibling, mother, father, even your pet; anyone with whom you share a spiritual or mental relationship with a strong bonding.
And you abandoned your ex ‘coz you didn’t feel sparkles while making out – a soul mate ‘assumed’ quality. Eh? Souls have a purpose on earth; making-out definitely not one of them!
Or you parted ways because he gifted you pearl and you wanted platinum– he so can’t read your mind—another “must-have” trait of a soul-mate! Girl, can you read your own mind? And good that he can’t, he would have been caught up in the whirlwind of your thoughts by now and would have become an ole mate!
Definitely, you need to take Mr. Universe’s lessons more seriously.
If you remember Friends’ episode where Monica meets Don who is exactly like her (and they both want to live in the house made of cheese); Phoebe terms them ‘soul mates’. Monica explains to her jealous husband, Chandler, that she doesn’t believe in soul mates and doesn’t think that they were destined to end up together either. They fell in love and work hard at their relationship.
You believe in it or not, the concept underlines the insight that every relationship requires equilibrium. That’s precisely what a soul searches for. And you struggle it out, you earn that. Still, it will be a Bournville–44% dark! But you will find the incredible sweetness in that bitterness.
We put together agreements with certain souls before we come to life. The souls choose each other with whom they’ll have significant relationships and the number of chapters they will cover together. There are three kinds of soul-mates: Karmic (Debtors or Creditors; (nothing to do with your money)), Companions (BFFs), Twin-flame (Long-Lost Love). To keep the hope afloat, yes, there is a soul mate with whom you will share an ultimate love bond, an inexplicable vibration. Such soul mates are called twin-flames and are considered to be a part of your soul itself. You two are gathering experiences over lifetimes, dis-jointly, but will meet in some life. Companions too can be related with you romantically.
All of these soul mates’ purpose is to help you in your karmic cycle of cleansing and help to raise your level on the spiritual journey. You might not even meet a soul-mate in one lifetime and you may meet many of them in one. It’s all about your karma baggage.
You will meet your ‘one’ for sure, if not in this existence, some other; you are here for eons, this life span will pass away in a blink of an eye.
Quite profound; so will be the reunion!
