A right choice, an opportunity realized, can bring us to profound bliss and happiness. He takes your hand for the first time, and the memory of his touch transcends time, and a jolt through every atom of your being. She looks into your eyes, and you see soul companion across centuries. Your stomach turns upside down. Your arms are gooseflesh. Everything outside this moment looses its importance. (...) You can see the potential, the future. But he does not. His fear, his intellect, his problems keep veil over his heart’s eyes. He does not let you help him seep the veil aside. You mourn and grieve, and he moves on. Destiny can be so delicate. (...)
Listen to your heart, to your own intuitive wisdom, when making important decisions, especially when deciding about a gift of destiny, such as soulmate. Destiny will deposit its gift directly at your feet, but what you subsequently decide to do with that gift is up to you. If you rely exclusively on the advice of others, you may make terrible mistakes. Your heart knows what you need. Other people have other agendas. (...)
We hear excuses of the mind all the time. I’m too young; I need more experience; I am not ready to settle down yet; you are of a different religion (or race, social status, intellectual level, cultural background, and so on). These are all excuses, for souls possess none of these attributes. The person may recognize the chemistry. The attraction is definitely there, but the source of the chemistry is not understood. It is delusional to believe that this passion, this soul recognition and attraction, will be easily found again with another person. You do not run into such a soulmate every day, perhaps only one or two more in a lifetime. Divine grace may reward a good heart, a loving soul.Never worry about meeting soulmates. Such meetings are a matter of destiny. They will occur. After the meeting the free will of both partners reigns. What decisions are made or not made are a matter of free will, of choice. The less awakened will make decisions based on the mind and all of its fears and prejudices. Unfortunately, this often leads to heartache.
