Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.
In some people’s belief systems, human souls cycle through multiple lifetimes…each lifetime, bringing new lessons, to enrich the overall soul.
In this belief system, there is an acknowledgment that people who are intertwined with one another, cycle through multiple lifetimes, taking on different roles in each other’s lives. They believe that two lovers who wish to find one another in the physical realm, have specific qualities that draw them back to each other, so that while they are not able to remember the pact that they made before they came back into the three-dimensional realm, there is something deep within, that attracts them to each other, time and time again. (Cue: Somewhere in Time theme track)
I cannot speak as to whether or not any of this is true, but the concept, as a writer, fascinates me. In today’s aphorism., Rumi is explaining this phenomenon. In his explanation, there’s something about both lovers that are within one another, such that they will not only be attracted, but will know deep in their heart that they belong with one another.
The poetic notion of having such a soulmate, one who is capable of seeing that which is most special about their mate, is clearly appealing, as we navigate the highs and lows of human relationships.
There are reasons for our internal need to feel bonded, and ultimately specially connected, to someone who’s heart we hold most dearly. This connection binds us and them, in fresh and unique ways. As these bonds grow over time, and produce ever increasing dedication between both parties, the feelings of love and connectivity blossoms.
If you are fortunate enough to have such a person in your world, make certain to let them know this on all days, not just Valentine’s Day.
