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.
