Another concept to consider is...soulmates are not all intimate love interest. For instance, I have a blood cousin who is my soulmate. She is the complement to my life's energy but I don't plan on bedding her or marrying her.
That's just my perception as a person with some intuitive, holistic energy running through me. I actually just read an article regarding this very subject which I have included a portion and the link below. Hope it helps...
"...you donít have one great love ó you have many potential great loves. According to New York Minister and Psycho-Spiritual Counselor, Susan Lemak, soul mates are profound soul connections in your life. When youíre with one, you stop looking, so youíre not aware of the other potential soul mates around you. While youíre thinking how hard it is to find The One, the reality is that itís hard for you to choose. A soul mate is someone who reflects or matches your energy and your path in life. A soul mate is someone whose power and potential are complementary to your own."
eklctc, so cool with the meditation thing! I am buddhist, though newly so and am just really getting into meditation and yoga as a spiritual practice. I do believe in energies. The concept of a soulmate as a soul connection is very intriguing. It makes sense. I really like the idea! You have taught me something today, so thank you.
