Fufufu, I find this so funny - and I really apologize if I'm flooding anyone's flist. I tend to do that sometimes.
Anyways, I was just thinking about soulmates and all that hoopla when my curiosity brought me to the Writer's Block question of the day. Now, I'm a night owl and tend to see the new question of the day as soon as it's posted... I rarely ever reply to them. They're not very fascinating most of the time, now are they? Not that it should matter to me. =P People probably don't read my journal (not that I blame them - I don't write about anything interesting).
Oh, but soulmatessoulmatessoulmates. People who share a deep spiritual connection that can be translated into unwavering love and devotion. Rather sweet, isn't it?
I sure as hell wish I had a soulmate, but I don't necessarily believe in them. I'm not spiritual, so building a spiritual connection with someone seems silly to me. However, I'm not saying it's not possible. People who are spiritual probably have experienced this sort of connection - whether true love can be incorporated into this bond doesn't seem to be very important. I mean, it is very possible to have a strong, spiritual connection without the kind of love two lovers may share. This is what I believe, anyway...
You see, I strongly believe that it's possible to fall in and out of love everyday. If love is required for a soulmate, then my idea would suggest that they aren't nearly as unique as one may think. Furthermore, those who are in love with love rather than the person receiving their love must have no soulmate at all. Would that even be possible? A soulmate not existing for one person? Is that because their is an uneven amount of people in the world and that lover of love merely pulled the smallest straw? How very sad for them.
This is not a bleak outlook. This is not a logical outlook. I believe in many kinds of love. I believe that love is fickle. I believe that at one point in my life I have loved someone the way a lover might, but I have fallen from that place. At this moment in my life, I love many people as though they were family. I love myself.
But they were not and are not my soulmate - nor will there ever be such a thing for someone who is not spiritual like me. :] That does not mean I will not experience that euphoria.
