How do you know if you have found your Soulmate? When you both pick out the exact same card for your Anniversary!
When two hearts beat as one. When you always get excited about being able to get back home to see your Sweetie. When your Beloved never lets you get out the door without a kiss and an admonition to “Be Careful”!!
When you look around your life and your home and the most important thing you see is your Soulmate. When you can remember where and when and why you did this or that and how you came to pick out that souvenir or admire an old photo you will know the feeling – and I hope you will!
We live in a retirement community (15,000 people) not too far from the main road, and it never fails that at least once a day you can hear a siren go by and the reality of “The Circle of Life” is once again impressed upon you. When I was younger I could never quite understand how it was that so often when one spouse of a couple who had been married for 30, 40 or 50 years passed on that the other spouse, who seemed to be in good health, would be very likely to pass on within a year of losing their Soulmate. Now that I have a Soulmate I understand. They lose the desire to live on without their Beloved!!!
Losing the desire to live – It seems so crazy when the basic instinct of life is self survival at all costs, but for those who have been lucky enough to have found a little Heaven on Earth with a Soulmate it makes perfect sense.
I always feel so sad for the one who is left behind and I have had too many opportunities to see it up close – and we want to be like the ending in the movie “The Notebook” or like the very most romantic shot in the whole movie “Titanic” where the little old couple is shown spooning in their cabin as the water is coming in (that shot made me cry).
If you have been lucky enough to have had a little Heaven on Earth with a Soulmate it makes perfect sense that you would want to be in Heaven again!
