Do you believe that we all have a perfect match somewhere in the world?
It’s like finding the ying to your yang, the salt to your pepper, etc.
I believe that we all have that perfect match.
Someone with whom, if we are lucky enough to find them amongst the however many billion people live on this planet, we instantly know it is right.
The Greek philosopher Plato famously wrote about soul mates in his Symposium:
“According to Greek Mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
Sometimes we search for several lifetimes to find our other halves.
And when we meet them, I would imagine that one would be struck by a feeling, difficult to describe, but even though you hardly know each other, you feel some underlying connection, be it mental, or otherwise, and a sense of belonging and desire.
Another filling to add to the sandwich that is soul mates, is that they are, essentially, a reflection of you. Your mirror image, so to speak. Someone that reflects both good and bad of ourselves.
By reminding us that we are by no means perfect, in their opposing nature, but highlighting the differences so to speak our ‘soul mate’ gives us the opportunity to grow.
Just like ying and yang, I believe soul mates are opposites who attract, come together and complete each other by making one whole from two halves!
