Did you ever get the feeling that you knew someone from the moment that you met? I mean – that you were automatically and unconsciously somehow connected? From the first time your eyes met and mumbled words were spoken there was some sort of a comfort – a knowing – a belonging. It can be both startling and unfamiliarly familiar – if that makes any sense at all. What’s it all about??
Why are we instantly attracted to a person’s smile and why do we believe we have seen those incredible blue eyes somewhere before – and that they recognized something unspoken between us? Why do conversations come so easily and naturally with certain people – are they simply like minded kindred spirits or is it a connection they share from another place and time…. perhaps? How do we finish each other’s sentences and find humor in a shared moment that no one else recognizes? When partnered in Pictionary – how do we get “Toy Story 3” from a circle drawn on a blank page?? I think I am starting to believe in all of the past life and future life possibilities. The whole concept of a soul mate and what that really means can take us on a path of inner discovery we may not be ready to travel. I do believe I have my soul mate out there somewhere – that soul that is bonded with mine and will reunite again and again until we get it right. That soul that is intended for me and with whom I can reach my full potential – whenever that happens to be. This could take life time upon life time if both souls are not in unison –if it all goes to shit in this life – perhaps in the next life we will be dancing to the same song. The most painful and frustrating experience is when you are certain you recognize your soul mate and they do not recognize you. The fall or failure of a relationship can often be tethered to one soul simply not being ready for the other. Nothing more and nothing less – and in some strange and unexplainable way there is peace and hope in that possibility. At least that is what I believe.
Are these familiar attractions our opportunities for second chances – our dreams recognized and brought before us for another shot at happiness? Is it the resonance of our past lives that pull at our heart strings and lead us into a love that time almost forgot? So many infinite possibilities and explanations for what leads us to the people in our lives and takes us to that chance encounter just around the corner. It is what we do with those encounters that builds the content of our character in this crazy, unpredictable world and leads us to the place we need to be and hopefully into the arms of the one we are meant to be there with.
