We all have heard this from the time we were small. Many think that your soul mate is the person that you fall in love with. Is this true, if so how and why?
Does the meaning of a soul mate mean some thing different for every culture? The way we are raised in our religions and spiritual beliefs is how we look at that kinda of thing.
The most common thought is that there is some one that is a perfect fit for us and completes us. The one that you fall in love with not the same kind of love that you give to your kids parents and siblings but that special kind of love. If you find that some one and wish to spend your entire life with them then that is thought to be your soul mate. I truly believe this sort of thing.
I also believe that your soul is reincarnated and you live your lives with the same people forever. Not the same way and not in the same body but you have the same desires with every life time that you live and you are bound to met up with the same person that you will love forever. If some one has never found his or hers soul mate in a life time then it may be due to karma. For instance if in your last life you did some thing wrong then most likely it will come back to you in the next life. Now this is my out look on it.
This has been suggested through many mythologies. Greek Myths more than any thing. It was said that humans once consisted of four arms and four legs with one head but two faces. The Great lord Zeus for some reason feared these beings and so tore us apart to make two of us then divided us all around the world in hopes that we would never find the other half. But from time to time these two meet and becomes one again which is the most powerful bond in the entire world because they are the same soul there for they are soul mates.
Now to the Bible and Christianity, Mark 10:7-9 declares, �A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.� A husband and wife are �united,� �one flesh,� �no longer two, but one,� and �joined together,� i.e., soul mates? Is this really talking about soul mates.
All love is sacred in its own way but the kind of love that shared between two can not really be described as we would describe how we love our kids parents and other family that is not considered a soul mate.
Here is what I think of myself and the life that I have lived.
My past life and all of my other lives I believe that I have been pretty much the same as I am right now. Am I perfect no not even close but I am simple and never really change. I believe that the hard times I have lived this time around is some payment of the bad deeds that I done in past life but it was not so terrible that I did not get something good out of it. The man that I married I believe with all of my heart that he and I have been around together more then this time but many times. I have had dreams of he and I together in past lives. From the time that I met this person I felt as if I knew him some how although we had never spoken to one another until we met face to face but it was a little some thing down deep inside of me and I knew.
Perhaps there is no heaven or hell just another life to live and the way you live each life is a result of how your next life with be lived. I mean I am just throwing out what I think in no way am I saying this is true just the way I look at it. Don’t get me wrong I believe in God 100% and there is a part of me that does believe there is a heaven and hell. But think of this for a minute, what if those of us that has done bad in one life our fate is given to the Devil and his demons for them to decide how we will live and what will happen and for those of us that has done ok our fates is given to God and the Angels of heaven and they decide our fates and what will happen that sorta make sense if you think about it for a minute.
So what do you think a soul mate is? Is there any thing to it at all? If there were nothing to it then where did it come from and why do many of us believe it? I don’t know and never will none of us will ever know what is really true and what is not but it is fun to set think about what it could be it gets your mind going.
