(Part I discussed the definition of a soul and the complexities of a soul.)
A karmic soul mate is one of the souls that could be a soul fragment (remember, a part of your very own soul) or the souls that are in the very nearest soul group in proximity to you from your soul origins. In the lives that you shall be born in, your karmic soul mate is that one, though not the half of your very own soul fragment, yet you were predestined as husband and wife or physical partners. You shall then likewise be born and reborn, crossing paths in a very intimate relationship, whether again as husband and wife or as partners in order to resolve any issues that have stemmed from your past lives. This is a very special connection of souls that have karmic effects on one another and cannot just be ignored.
Catch your breath. And you thought that the Soul is just a singular entity? God does not create simplistic beings, for the very simple one-celled animals of the physical world has a complex dissection on its own. His Angels are another story too; like Him, they are Souls that retained God’s duality in the perfect balance. That is why in several researches, Angels are pictured as Androgynous; those that bear a feminine face and a masculine body. These are those that bore ethereal beauty and grace coupled with unexplained strength. But humans are of a different story. Our souls have divided essences. And for the reason that God’s duality signifies wholeness, a perfect balance of the masculine and feminine, our split souls (or soul fragments) are now endlessly searching to be united with the other half. In the process of birth and rebirth, the search continues, being alive, connecting with others, dying and being born again in the process of cleansing the soul and finally be reunited with in oneness with our soul’s Twinflame until we finally get reunited, purified with the One Great Flame.
Sadly, not all souls (or soul fragments) that have lost their other half are to finally rejoin in their wholeness. Some Twinflames have endlessly searched through countless lifetimes and lifecycles and yet shall end up lost, not finding their own half. Probably because they have never reached the purification process required by God to each and every soul that came from Him (the reason why the Bible talks about those chosen ones ‘who shall be saved and shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven’) in order to return to Him.
Some Twinflames may have crossed paths in one or several lifetimes or lifecycles but their spiritual purification processes could have been lacking in that particular time that the polar attraction between these two half souls, as aptly put, is not enough to enjoin them in the process. So these half souls still continue the process of rebirth in order to resolve the influences that hinder total spiritual purification.
Some Twinflames are lucky enough to cross each other’s paths in short several tries and reunite, completing their spiritual purification and finally, reunite with their Creator.
In our physical lives, we meet someone, get married, start a family, bear children and we seem to be happy, and yet the inner joy is lacking. For those who cannot bear this indescribable yearning, marital problems materialize in the midst of a seemingly perfect marriage. Physical incompatibility is not a sole basis or justification for these situations; nor culture, nor beliefs, nor individuality. There is a deeper reason. And it lies in the spiritual realm. It is not now a puzzle why some couples, after decades or so of being married, end up estranged; it is because, for some couples who are even so eerily compatible with each other, a lingering feeling of emptiness prevails and thus, the compatibilities become incompatibilities and the complements become opposites. Men and women turn to extramarital activities because the search for that ‘lost half’ has never been satiated. If a couple is sometimes eerily [I use this term to picture a seemingly perfect couple in looks and compatibility] perfect together, it is because they have married or chose as partner, one of the Karmic Souls in the soul group origin of their souls or maybe share the soul whose fragments are in that one soul. But let me remind you once again, in spite of this closest proximities in soul origin, you are still not reunited with the actual half of your own soul fragment and even in the almost perfect relationships, chaos finds its way in.
Because the soul is trapped in the physical body, its limitless capabilities have been also trapped to satisfy the limitations of the physical body. One may feel a domino of physical manifestations brought about by stimuli that make one feel ‘in love’ or ‘loving someone’. One feels like dying when one is separated from a loved one. But even in the event of togetherness, there is still a haunting feeling of searching. The feeling of being ‘in love’ or ‘loving’ and the feeling of attachment to the object of one’s affection is called cathecxis; just attachment, just simply to cathetc, but not true love because true love is only by way of being reunited with one’s twinflame…
I am sorry for taking out the romance in your commonly known concept of ‘soul mates … So be wary when your heart beats fast upon the sight of a person who passed you by the corridor or when your friend’s friend dreamily stares into your eyes or when you brush the elbow of the guy that catches your fancy and feel an electric rush or even when you feel like you will die when your husband needed to leave the country and work abroad…
These all are not telltale signs that you have found your ‘soul mate’, or in proper terms, your own Twinflame.
No one could really tell. Only your half-souls will know beyond living.
