Six billion people. Six billion people on this planet and still counting. Sometimes searching for the person you need or want isn’t as hard as you think it is…but with six billion people on the planet…searching for the person who wants AND needs you with an equal or greater desire than you is far from being easy.
Of course, that’s only at best flesh deep.
There comes a time in everyone’s life especially every romantic’s life where they will begin to question the intensity of love as a whole on a deeper level. All a sudden your mind is flooded with so many questions. Do I really love? Is this what love is supposed to be? Am I doing things right? How do I know it’s supposed to be this way? Every one of these questions echo with a need to find some deeper meaning to the love they want so dearly until they come to the questions of questions. The one question who’s answer fits everything into place.
Who is my soul mate?
The concept of soulmates may be only a romantics notion, but it’s belief has existed for a long long time. The Greeks believed that once there were no male and female and that all souls were one. Then the souls were torn apart into male and female. The Greeks thought that if you find a piece of your own soul, you would be too much alike to be lovers, but you would still be soul mates. But when you found the other half of your soul, they would be your soul mate, your perfect lover.
So where does this lead me? Nowhere really. Finding a soulmate as I said in the beginning is nothing short of finding a needle in 6 billion haystacks. Sometimes just because you looked at one part doesn’t mean you know that its what you’re looking for. True enough…some of us spend our entire lives trying to find something we don’t know we’re looking for. We pass the same things over and over again in search of a peace that we can’t begin to put together.
Many of us lack the experience to understand what is it we’re looking for. We don’t know who we are. We don’t know what our souls are meant to be. We don’t know what part of our souls we are supposed to be looking for. Hence…think about it. Even if you DID meet your soul mate. Chances are you’d miss it completely or you’d screw things up because you don’t know how to react.
That pretty much ups the odds doesn’t it?
I don’t know…for me discovering true love is about finding your soul mate. Finding the person that you can share your existence with or even redefine your scope of it. Finding your soul mate to me means having the best and worst of you brought out. Having being able to do things you never even dreamt of doing. Having to be able to go to places you couldn’t even concieve in your mind’s eye.
Being the better version of who you are and so much more.
That’s my soul mate for me.
Maybe I can say I’ve found her. Maybe I can say after years of looking past the person who is the other half of my coin. I can look into her eyes and say exactly what was meant to be said. Felt exactly what was meant to be felt. Done exactly what I should have kicked myself into doing so long back.
Smile and let myself go to the warm sunshine that you are.
