What we’re all looking for

Maybe not all of us, but I think most of us are on a journey to find our other half.

That’s what I’m looking for, anyway, and I try to keep moving forward toward it.

Someday.

  1. a different perspective. I lost what felt like my partner in life too early to a biking accident. I chose to stay open to and engage in relationships after his death, although none worked out in the long term. this quote by Gary Zukov (who I normally do not find helpful) lingers in me:

    Look at yourself as having seven billion soul mates. These are not people who can complete your life or relieve your burdens. They are souls who offer you opportunities to grow spiritually and to whom you offer the same.

    • I’m sorry for your loss, and hope you find the relationship you are seeking.

      Here is yet another perspective on soul mates … I am not sure I agree with all of it, particularly the part about how they are necessarily in our lives only temporarily.

      β€œPeople think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. 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.

      A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

      A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master….”
