Love, Soulmates, And All That Jazz

Back in June I posted something on "Love". Somewhere in the piece I mentioned that there are three kinds of relationships being acquaintances, friends and soulmates. You can put most people in the acquaintance or friend category simply by eyeballing and talking to them. Soulmates are a different kettle of fish. Soulmates involve your soul which may be entirely different from your persona as a friend or acquaintance. I think the problem arises because when we are young everyone gets together and lies to each other in the name of "competition". If the "lie" is repeated long enough with the right amount of passion we start to believe it. We all eventually get old, mellow out, don't care, become too tired to lie, and generally let it all hang out or be "honest" with each other. Our Soul starts to break through and we become open to ourselves, others, and lastly to God. We also suddenly realize that we don’t know anything and God graduates in our mind from a "What Is There In It For Me God", to an admission that God is much bigger than we can imagine and we are indeed humble individuals that only exist because of God’s grace. We also start to realize that Jesus was God’s earthly demonstration of his love for us and if we pay attention and listen to God maybe in the great expanse of Random Chance and Consequences we can add something of value before we cash in our chips and if we are really hot find the plan that God left us to discover through interacting with Him.
