What is a soul mate? the dictionary defines soul mate as, a person with whom one has a strong affinity, especially a person of the opposite sex.
Gosh, by that definition I guess if you are gay that would exclude you.
There are different kinds of soul mates. there are karmic soul mates from a past life that you have something to work out or balance. These relationships are not meant to be forever but just long enough to teach a lesson or to balance a wrong of the past.
There are what I would call soul mate buddies that are not sexaul or romantic. My friend, Manny, may god reat his soul was my soul mate. He got me. He was the one person that could be totally honest with me and I would listen because I knew he got me. Manny was gay so there was never anything sexual between, but he was my soul mate. My friend John, I love to death he is my soul mate as well, he gets me.
Then there is the soul mate that we all long for, whether straight or gay. In Spanish they say, Alma Gemela, twin soul. Twin souls seems to imply two of the same but I do not think even that is exactly right.
I see soul mates as two halves of the same soul. In the time before time, in the beginning of eternity there was consciousness, the creator, god. And out of this realm individual consciousenesses were created. These were the first souls. Imagine these first souls as luminescent orbs in the heavens. These souls were then split into two, a male and a female half. Do not think of this male and female as gender but rather like a battery with a postive charge and a negative charge.
These two halves are soul mates. So when we speak of our other half we are literaly speaking of our other half, of the other soul that is in actuality us.
And so we long for this reunion. We desire it more than anything else because until we find our other half life is not really complete.
This is what I think. This is what I feel. I have often been asked, do I really believe in soul mates? Yes, I have no choice. It is what gives me hope in this dry dessert of love. It is the Oasis that I know is there waiting for me, drawing me in.
Yes, everyone has a soul mate……….
…we do not look for love, not to fullfill us nor to complete us….loves is always with us, within us, what we are to do is to exude and shine forth the love that is within, which will then illuminate the path to our soul mate……..
