A Sophisticate finds her Soulmate

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same" Emily Bronte

According to Greek Mythology, the first humans were created with four arms, legs, and eyes. They had two noses and mouths. Afraid of their power, Zeus split each human in half and left them to wander aimlessly around the mortal world searching for their other half, their one true soul mate. 

One day I saw an older couple grocery shopping and noticed something special about them and how they acted with one another. When I asked the woman how long they had been married, she said 50 years. They still looked  relatively young so I knew they would reach 60 years. So, naturally I asked her what it was like to be married for so long. She looked at me, smiled, and said "You know each others thoughts and movements before they are spoken or done. It is like you are one person." 

"When will I meet him? We meet our soulmates when we're on our soul path" Karen M. Black

When I asked people how they met their spouse the number one answer was through a friend, the second was by accident, and sometimes it was both at the same time. "They were somewhere ordinary when they just happened to see or meet someone who caught their eye". For one reason or another, the timing allowed them to see or feel something special about another person. 

The saying "Love at first sight" and talk about "timing" when it comes to relationships and love are both true, sort of. The accidental meeting married people talk about is about something that they normally or naturally like getting gas, going to a movie or to the bookstore, going on travel or meeting in the airport. They were on facebook, going shopping or at a party with friends.  Some people go as far as to believe that a person's soulmate lives within a five to ten mile radius. Ask most married couples, and they mention how they discovered how close they lived to their spouse when they first met.

The soul of a Sophisticate is the physical manifestation of her spirit (See 'A Sophisticate is Spiritual'). Her emotions and passion  are the outward manifestations of her soul. Therefore, a Sophisticate finds her soulmate by pursuing her passions and living her life the way she wants to live it.  She does nothing that is unnatural to her or makes her unhappy thereby inviting love and happiness to come in. She does what she is passionate about and pursues her dream or heart's desire. By pursuing her heart's desire the universe or her destiny will lead her to her heart's desire in love.

As with your soulmate, they are someone who are a part of you like an arm or a leg. You are as dependent on another person as you come to depend on your hand to help you eat. If anyone has ever been in love, you will know that your soul exists when you are separated from the one you love. The pain you feel is as intense as losing an arm, leg, or a hand.  

"Sometimes I think that a Soul mate is someone who will make you the most "you" that you can possibly be" Anonymous

A soulmate is a soulmate they are not exactly the same (See 'Sophisticated Love Lesson #3: Opposites Attract, Sort of') yet, they are exactly same not on the outside but on the inside, in their heart. A soulmate doesn't match a particular criteria or checklist, and a soulmate doesn't coincide with outward circumstances like having the same schedule (See 'Dating in the Workplace'). 

Those who are soulmate have different backgrounds yet, without you saying a word, they know each other. Without an understanding of where another person comes from physically  they know emotionally where the other person is coming from. They understand  and love you because of you. Explanations are needed only in the beginning for a lifetime of understanding. 

A Sophisticate knows she has found her soulmate when all that she has said, he listens to, and all that she loves and is, is him as well. In the end, a Sophisticate does not find her soulmate nor does her soulmate find her rather, their destinies find each other. ;D
