Soul-mates

HtK7Y.png

“I am the question

And you are the answer

I am the LYRICS .. with words like dancers

Need You the MELODY .. to give life to my song

I am a boat on the sea all alone

You are the North star guiding me home 

I’m the explorer .. and 

You are the treasure I seek”

 – Impossibly Beautiful – Jean Watson

 

This is a song of spiritual seeking .. finding the One True “lover of my soul” .. but it echoes the deep desire in every human heart .. that quiet quest to be known & loved & treasured. For all that we are and all that we hope to become.

Finding that one rare match .. is like a quest for some elusive treasure

For some this would be finding their “soul-mate” .. which is bookishly defined as:                                

1 : a person who is perfectly suited to another in temperament. 

2 : a person who strongly resembles another in attitudes, beliefs or ideology 

A soul-mate might be found in any life relationship: family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, lovers .. even enemies.

We are spirit beings with a soul. When we encounter other souls in our lives, the meeting of these two unseen forces can create intriguing attractions .. at times, challenging effects.  

One soul might feel a natural affinity for another .. at complete ease .. while others might  clash.

It is thought that a soul-mate might come into your life

.. for a Reason

.. for a Season 

.. for a Lifetime

This unique soul-relationship might help us grow in love and wisdom .. or might aid us in finding Truth .. or learning difficult life lessons.

There are different types of soul-mates

.. soul friend

.. soul teacher 

.. soul companion 

Soul relationships 

.. require caring .. sharing .. and daring

.. they are intentional .. at times emotional 

.. there is reward .. but there may also be loss 

.. they are not always rational .. at times painful 

.. there is intimacy but that is not always physical

 

There are three things that @Farooq Omar  identifies in his post “Soul-mates” that resonated:

The first is the ability to “be a friend”    

.. chemistry .. attraction .. ebbs & flows 

.. LOVE that does not cease .. but grows

.. all external beauty fades over time 

.. but soul-mates have a unique rhyme 

.. that carries an essence .. SUBLIME

 

The second reflects shared commitment .. “become together”

Human beings are always in process .. we are always “becoming” 

The question is: Becoming who? Becoming what? Becoming with?

Soul companions entrust their hearts to each other .. to grow in “oneness”

This is a wonderful transformative journey .. a great adventure .. a pilgrimage

                                                                      

The “significant” qualities that Farooq describes for a “perfect partner” are universally esteemed.

.. someone who “moves me to improve .. to be a superior individual”

.. motivates me to “show my best side” .. 

.. the ability to “draw out the most incredible” in each other                              

In truth: there are no “perfect partners” .. because there are no perfect people.

Yet, we can be whole-hearted  in our imperfect state to give our best and to be our best

God’s design for a man & a woman to “become together” is called “marriage” 

“And the two shall become one flesh” 

Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:5, Mark 10:8, Ephesians 5:31

In the Christian faith .. marriage is a spiritual picture: a “profound mystery”             

“For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” 

This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 

However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” – Ephesians 5

A Christian husband has been given a divine charge: to love his wife as Christ loves the church 

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” – Ephesians 5:25 

 

The third strand of the cord Farooq says: “we complete one another”

.. the weakness of one .. will be lovingly supported by the others sure strength 

.. we may not always agree .. but we are lovingly joined in a “oneness” wavelength 

 

In an “extraordinary homegrown life”

Blessed are you .. if you find in another being .. a nest for your heart & soul 

Desire & commitment to “know” each other,  can make two halves .. WHOLE

 

Love brings spiritual completeness 

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails .. 

For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears .. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”  1 Corinthians 13

 

There is One who is the lover & restorer of our soul 

“The Lord is my Shepherd 

I shall not want                         

He makes me to lie down in green pastures 

He leads in beside still waters 

He restores my soul” – Psalm 23

 

Giving honor ..

@Fay Vietmeier , thank you for honoring me and mention. Your words of purity and visions sometimes baffle me. In this selfish world, I can still find someone so pure and wise. I am privileged….

Somewhere down in my heart, there's a fire, a burnin' heart

Somewhere down in my heart, there's craving for a beginning

I'm passing on in feeling

It's my reality in dream

I'm livin' in my, livin' in my fantasies

You're my heart, you're my spirit

I keep it sparkling wherever I go

You're my heart, you're my spirit

I'll hold you until the end of time

Stay with you together
