How to find your soul mate – The Foolish Way to Captivating the Love of your LifeWe’ve been together for 28 years, celebrated our 17th anniversary just over 3 months ago, and, like the Energizer Bunny, we are still going strong.Everyone needs someone who understands them and cares for them unconditionally. Sure we have parents and siblings, but the one person who truly gets you is your soul mate.  Many children are introduced to the idea of soul mates in movies or television shows. Two people meet and just fall madly in love with each other. But is that all there is? What are Soul Mates? Sounds romantic. But what exactly is it? And how do you know when you found one? From wiki,Plato, In his dialogue The Symposium, Plato has Aristophanes present a story about soul mates:Aristophanes states that humans originally had four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces.He continues that there were three genders: man, woman and the “Androgynous“.Each with two sets of genitalia with the Androgynous having both male and female genitalia.The men were children of the sun, the women were children of the earth and the Androgynous were children of the moon, which was born of the sun and earth.It is said that humans had great strength at the time and threatened to conquer the gods.The gods were then faced with the prospect of destroying the humans with lightning as they had done with the Titans but then they would lose the tributes given to the gods by humans.Zeus developed a creative solution by splitting humans in half as punishment for humanity’s pride and doubling the number of humans who would give tribute to the gods.These split humans were in utter misery to the point where they would not eat and would perish so Apollo had sewn them up and reconstituted their bodies with the navel being the only remnant harkening back to their original form.Each human would then only have one set of genitalia and would forever long for his/her other half; the other half of his/her soul.It is said that when the two find each other, there is an unspoken understanding of one another, that they feel unified and would lie with each other in unity and would know no greater joy than that.  Soul mates: Soul + Mate What’s in a Soul? Soul is our principle of life, our feelings, our thoughts, and our actions. It is inseparable from the body; the spiritual part of humans as distinct from the physical part.Mate is more than a friend or a spouse. It is one of a pair, your support, and love. How do you know when you found your Soul Mate? There is no definitive rule. No way to measure the love and the level of understanding. But it is more than a feeling.  Here’s how I see my husband / soul mate: There’s no jealousy. I love it when others compliment about him. There’s no doubt that I am the most important person in his life, and…
