An Interesting Article on Soul Mates, Part 3

     In the last two posts, I presented my view about Twin Souls in response to Jane Ganahl's article, "A Match Made in Heaven?", in Spirituality and Health magazine.  Here is a quote representing the common view of Twin Souls:
  "I've spent so much time looking for Mr. Perfect that I may have overlooked a few Mr. Pretty Damn Greats.  I think our frantic search for The  One is just another way our culture does not live in the moment.  We're always thinking that one person is around the corner -- the one that will complete us and make us happy."
     But Elizabeth Gilbert, in Eat, Pray, Love, writes that "People think a soul mate is your perfect fit.  But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life." 

     I agree, adding that a Twin Soul (what Ganahl refers to as a soul mate), is not someone you search for, but someone you prepare for.  He or she is not someone who completes you, but someone who unravels you so that you can become more than you are now.  Your Twin Soul is your catalyst and your ultimate destiny.

An Interesting Article on Soul Mates, Part 2

     As I wrote in the last post, I found an article about Twin Souls. ("A Match Made in Heaven?" by Jane Ganahl in Spirituality and Health magazine).  The point of the article was that too many people wait for the Perfect One to come along and make them complete.  The author suggests that perhaps the notion of a "soul mate," as she terms it, is misleading or even false.  As she tells herself when meeting a potentially interesting man who may not fit her criteria of a Perfect Match, "You're not a teenager anymore -- you can't afford to keep believing in soul mates or tooth fairies."

     Well, I believe that Twin Souls do exist, but they are not here to complete us in the way most people think of it.  As I wrote in The Gemini Bond, Twin Souls are our other half, but their purpose is to lead us to a higher realm of existence, to evolve and grow.  We need to be fully complete as individuals before we can fully join with our Twin Soul.

An Interesting Article on Soul Mates

     I was reading the January/February 2014 issue of Spirituality and Health (a fabulous magazine, if you don't already know about it) and ran across an interesting article.  Jane Ganahl, in "A Match Made in Heaven?", explores the notion of soul mates.  However, as she uses the term (even referring to Plato's explanation of the soul's duality), I think she means Twin Souls.

     Right down my alley!  I read the article with relish and found some juicy quotes which I will share later.  However, the gist of the article is that many people wait and wait for the "perfect one" to come along and make them complete and happy.  That's not how Twin Souls work.  More on that to come.

     If you would like to look at the article for yourself, here's the link:  Happy reading!
