What Is a Soul Mate?

Everyone today seems to be searching for their soul mate.
Or do they mean twin soul?
Or twin flame?
What is the difference, if there is one, between a twin soul and a soul mate?
Have you ever thought about it?
Whenever someone talks to me about searching for their soul mate I ask them,
“Or do you mean twin soul?”
And most of the time I get a blank look as if to say,
“I never thought of that.”
So what is the difference between a soul mate and a twin soul? If there is one.
Twin souls are, well, like twins.
They come from the same soul, or womb, and are here to achieve a common or similar goal,either together or independently.
Both Darwin and Wallace arrived at much the same theory of evolution at the same time, so they were twin souls who, rather than working in collaboration, developed the same theories, concurrently but independently.
Like insurance, if one didn’t get it the other one probably would.
Logarithms, you’ll be interested to know, were discovered by both John Napier of Scotland and Joost Burgi of Switzerland around the same time.
The microchip was invented twice within half a year of each other, first by Jack Kilby (1958) and then Robert Noyce (1959).
So what are soul mates and how are they different from a twin soul?
Soul mates are different souls, mates, who may have known each other in past lives, who feel a strong bond with each other or who have agreed to meet up to help each other or to learn from each other, often as a teacher for the other.
“You complete me” are the words of a soul mate.
“I am complete” are the words of a twin soul.
They can be your closest friend or someone who irritates you no end, depending on what their purpose is in being mates and what you need to teach/learn.
I’ve been told that I see my greatest faults in my partner.
Soul mate.
I’d like to think that the subjects of some of the greatest love stories in history might have agreed to meet again as soul mates to live out uncompleted lives.
To complete each other.
Love at first sight.
Did Lancelot and Guinevere and other tragic love stories return as soul mates?
What if you were one of them.
There are many theories on the question of what is a soul?
Mine is that the essence of our soul or higher self is what animates our physical body.
Not our soul but its essence.
Imagine that your soul is like a vast ocean which began as a clear ocean of water aeons ago.
With each lifetime a bucketful of the water from the clear ocean is drawn as the essence of a single lifetime.
That is not your soul but the essence of your soul.
The experiences of each lifetime you’ve ever lived accumulate in that ocean and therefore in that bucket of water, let’s say as colours, a different colour for each experience which are returned to the ocean when we die.
Suppose this happens over and over with each lifetime and the once clear water of the ocean becomes coloured with the experiences of every lifetime.
Each life adds more colours (experiences) to your ocean and each new life’s individual essence contains the colours (experiences) of that life to add to the ocean of coloured water.
I’d prefer to call it essence not soul.
Atman which is Brahman.
Essence which is soul.
So twin souls would be two bucketfuls draw from the same ocean.
Soul mates, on the other hand, are bucketfuls of coloured water drawn from different oceans.
Then there are group souls.
Group souls need to socialise.
Have you ever wondered why a flock of birds in flight all change direction at precisely the same moment?
It’s because most birds and animals are members of a group soul.
So were we, I believe, in ages past.
Then we, at some point, break away and individuate.
Then we are complete.

Love and Peace,

Neil

Romancing Your Life & Changing the World

The Great Regency Cover-Up

What They Didn’t Tell Us About Life.

It’s how I came to search for ethical Truth and look what I found.

It’s in my new 104 page book.

In what seems a lifetime ago a chance meeting with a Librarian who became a close friend opened a door that I found I couldn’t resist.

Was there more to life than meets the eye?

So began my own lifelong search I tell the story of my meeting with the Librarian in the first chapter of this book.

The following 17 chapters tell of unusual personal experiences that followed that reveal my quest to find it.

As if I had opened the door to the answers I was seeking.

Although I didn’t know it.

A second evolution.

Parallel lives.

The secret of Destiny.

What our soul can tell us.

The unknown cause of climate change.

The ethical nature-affirming culture that’s already changing the planet for good.

How we can change the world ourselves.

All in easy-to-read bite-size chapters you can digest quickly.

What Does Your Soul Look Like?

“What is a soul,” enquired the little boy of his father (Cary Grant) in the 1958 movie ‘Houseboat’?

Your soul is like a vast ocean., he replied as they dangled their bare legs over the deck of their houseboat, gazing out across the water.

Created maybe aeons ago.

At first, let’s say, the water was crystal clear.

Natural.

Pure.

Then you had your first lifetime, maybe aeons ago.

You had a body, maybe not even physical, but a body of some kind.

And that first body needed life.

To stay with the same ocean metaphor, a life was drawn from that pure ocean like a bucket of water taken from it.

So that bucketful of water, your essence of your new life, was added to your physical body.

Your body, in whatever form, then had life.

At that point you became a living being.

Full of life.

Your soul is like the ocean and the water drawn from that ocean is the essence, a fragment, a reflection of the ocean.

It is a part of your soul but not you soul, if you know what I mean.

Same but different.

Connected but apart from the ‘mother soul’.

That’s how I remember the conversation.

Maybe I’ve editorialised just a little to fit my own thinking.

With each lifetime, let’s say, you had adventures and experiences.

And let’s say that every experience, every emotion, everything we learn is a colour and,, over time, each bucketful of water taken from the vast ocean becomes coloured.

Each bucketful of water is emptied into the vast ocean at the end of each lifetime.

Over the years that ocean is coloured with the waters of our lives.

Ending up today, let’s say, with soul ocean coloured by every lifetime we’ve ever had.

So with each bucketful taken from an ocean of coloured water we begin a new life coloured by our past.

A past we probably don’t remember.

And so we enter every new life with an essence of our many, many pasts.

Only to add more colours this time.

We are both our soul and an essence of soul.

This essence contains many clues to our present including our Destiny.

Is this your idea of soul?

Love and Peace.

Neil.

How Entropy Can Stop You From Ageing. Even At 30.

Entropy is a secret code word for eternal youth.

It’s also a law of physics.

Known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

So why don’t we know about this?

Every physical thing rises and falls.

Like the Roman Empire.

Like ghost towns fallen from their heyday.

Like us.

We’re firstly young then we’re old.

And when we’re young we don’t want to think about old.

In today’s modern world we don’t want to think about old.

Until, one day, old arrives.

That’s entropy.

Why?

Why does our body get struck down with physical illnesses when we still have an active brain, a mind, a soul?

But entropy only cares about your body, not your mind or your soul.

Why must it be so.

So what if the only way to stop entropy is to intervene when we’re still young?

Should our ever-ageing body be subject to an anti-ageing consciousness while time is still on our side?

And should we be consciously seeking wisdom at an early age so that, if and when entropy arrives, we still have a timeless mind to outlive our ageing bodies?

To outlive and conquer entropy?

Then, if we believe that our mind creates our reality, maybe we have a shot at expecting long life, even in a physical sense.

How else can we defeat, or delay, entropy?

Yes, living longer and better can be about what we eat

And looking after our body.

And other factors.

And then there’s entropy.

Do we ever think about entropy?

Could that be another key factor in growing old?

Or not.

Has entropy always been a missing factor?

The elephant in the room.

We live in a time when we have knowledge and wisdom, or the source of, at our fingertips.

I mean the fingertips we use to search, or to chat, online for whatever we need.

In an instant.

Does wisdom come from having adventures and living a full life?

Granted, today it’s easier to have adventures from where we are.

Adventures of the mind.

That shouldn’t stop us from living your adventure.

To be sure, living longer can be about what we eat.

It could be about taking care of our body.

Do you ever think about living longer, or better, because of what you think.

About what’s in your mind?

Think about it.

Let’s tackle entropy right now.

Take care.

Neil

Why Do We Age?

It’s called ‘entropy’.

Entropy explains the rise and fall of everything.

From The Roman Empire to you and me.

Maybe it’s a Law of the Universe.

It’s the Second Law of Thermodynamics in physics.

Everything rises and falls, ashes to ashes, have you noticed.

But does it need to?

How does it steal our age?

WHY DOES EVERYTHING NEED TO RISE AND FALL?

Why does everything that has been created need to fall into disarray?

Including you and me.

That’s a good question.

And the answer is: entropy.

“Entropy is a scientific concept as well as a measurable physical property that is most commonly associated with a state of disorder, randomness, or uncertainty.” (Wikipedia)

Rise and fall, ashes to ashes, ageing.

It’s a physical thing.

But then, perhaps there’s another quality that isn’t subject to entropy.

Our mind.

The mind only ages when our physical self tells it that we age.

The legacy of the Roman Empire is surely mind stuff, its art, its thought, its spirit.

Its ruins are only the physical part.

Its soul remains.

Forever.

IS THAT THE SECRET OF LONGEVITY?

For our mind to tell our body not to age.

Not the other way around.

Should we stop believing that we grow old when our mind is forever young?

To have our mind tell our body it’s not old.

Instead of our body telling us, you’re old.

IS THE ANSWER TO KEEP THINKING YOUNG?
