...en este blog he escrito mucho sobre mi en torno a lo que representa y no he definido en si lo que es, tan solo es algo que siento y creo asi que busque una que otra definicion de lo que "Soulmate" significa y me encontre esto, lo cual creo lo resume de forma entendible.

Supongo que podria caer en discusion ya que cada quien podria tener su propio concepto, pero bueno no se, creo que no se bien como definirlo asi que dejo esto que contiene en gran parte lo que para mi significa.

(Sorry, it is english)

Classical – Greek mythology – Originally humans were combined of 4 arms, 4 legs, and a single head made of 2 faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spending their lives searching for the other half to complete them. This theory was presented as a half-serious story by Aristophanes in Plato's Symposium, after all the participants at the Symposium ("drinking party") were charged to philosophize on the topic of love.

"Plato wrote in his Symposium that humans have been looking for their soul mate ever since Zeus cut them in half. In his mythic story, Plato describes a world where there were men, women and people who were both men and women. Apparently, humans began discussing how they could climb up to heaven and replace the gods. The gods were upset by this and discussed what should be done. The simplest solution would be to destroy mankind, but Zeus came up with a better idea. He suggested cutting all human beings in half. This would serve two purposes. First, it would immediately double the number of people making offerings to the gods. Second, it would weaken the humans, so they would not be able to carry out their plan. Zeus' idea was accepted, and the humans were all divided into two. Naturally, the humans were upset at this, and Zeus decided to enable each half to have intercourse with their opposite , symbolically creating a whole. Consequently, the males sought other males, the females other females, and the people who had been both male and female sought their other half, allowing population to reproduce."

New Age concept of soulmate
There is a prevalent concept in some segments of the new agemovement that some souls are literally made and/or fated to be the mates of each other, or to play certain other important roles in each others' lives. These souls are thought to have created something in a past life and they have chosen this lifetime to help each other "heal." Following this concept, one can have many soulmates. For example: One could see another person they have never met in this lifetime and instantly hate or love them because of previous interaction(s) with the other in one or more previous lifetimes. The most popular use of this concept is in applying it to those who were loved intimately in other lifetimes which were then found in this one.
Also, being conscious of the "soul mate connection" is not necessary, according to this idea.

Soulmate Emotional Destruction Theory
Ultimately the consequence of this notion is the unfortunate reality that soulmates often possess the ability to inflict serious emotional injury unto their twin flame, greater than any other being could. This often results in the separation of idealized love, due to the severe emotional impact. Many soulmates are destined for an eternal search, not for lack of meeting, but rather lack of acceptance. The encounter is often analogous to the collision of matter and antimatter, a violent explosive reaction will occur, but if held through to completion only pure energy, and thus harmony, will result. Unfortunately few encounters are held through to completion.



Creo que no necesito decir mas nada.

  • la primera deifinicion sale en once segundos!! me gusto tanto q lo anote en un cuaderno :)

  • :)

    Leete Brida para que mueras con las Otras Partes

    dile al fugitivo/guerrero de fin de semana/seguidor de judas que te preste mi copia, me la quito hace eternidades y nunca me la devolvio jiji :D

  • The whole "soul mate" thing it's a complicate bussiness. I found mine and it brings lots of both hate and love to me... even now that she is away.
    It is really difficult for me to belive/accept the fact that one person so far away can have such a powerful effect in me... and i can only imagine how difficult it must be for you be "you" sometimes... anyway...

    BTW: Due to "Veronika decides to die" I got all Coelho's books... and actually I refuse to read his books... I only liked Veronika (I have not read them all, but I have read 5).

  • Osea...

    yo la más inspirada que escribí el mega comment y mi mozilla que se explotó...

    Así que resumo ese extenso comment a esto:

    1) Brian Weiss: "Una Vida Muchos Maestros"; "Sólo el amor es real".
    2) Bashert: pareja hecha en el cielo (Dios escoge la esposa de cada hombre 40 días antes de que cada hijo varón sea concebido); predestinado, predeterminado, destino; etimológicamente sher significa tijera (en yiddish) por lo que si la tijera puede cortar la formas de las cosas, entonces se puede decir que ese futuro evento (de encontrar tu alma gemela) ha sido predeterminado (coincidiendo en algo con la teoría de Zeus).

    Sorry por lo puntual, pero aún tengo jetlag y siento que me estoy despertando todos los días a las 4am. (Son las 11.10pm y estoy q me caigo del suenio)

    WOODY ALLEN: That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?

    GIRL IN MUSEUM: Yes it is.

    WOODY ALLEN: What does it say to you?

    GIRL IN MUSEUM: It restates the negativeness of the universe, the hideous lonely emptiness of existence, nothingness, the predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity, like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void, with nothing but waste, horror, and degradation, forming a useless bleak straightjacket in a black absurd cosmos.

    WOODY ALLEN: What are you doing Saturday night?

    GIRL IN MUSEUM: Committing suicide.

    WOODY ALLEN: What about Friday night?

    GIRL IN MUSEUM: [leaves silently]

  • Sinceramente, no se que decir exactamente respecto a este post, en dos palabras: me encanta.
    Como siempre te he dicho mana, soy malisima para expresarme escribiendo y, peor aun, leo muy poco si de mi depende buscar que leer, pero lo mas curioso es que me encanta leer, solo me hace falta una especie de "guia" que me recomiende que debo leer, aunque se que cada uno debe interesarse por su propia lectura jeje.
    El caso es que una de mis guias eres tu y tu blog, primero por lo que escribes y luego por lo que recomiendas leer (no me perdere Brida, ya la tengo de hecho jeje)

    En particular la lectura de este post me puso los pelos de punta, parecera una tonteria, pero jamas habia escuchado esa teoria y me encanta, una pregunta: ¿Como haces para encontrar lecturas tan increibles?
    Bueno, supongo que se debe a tu pasion por leer, daras con todo tipo de cosas, lo cierto es que me ahorras el trabajo de tener que buscar cosas realmente exitantes porque tu das con ellas, yo me limito a leer tus recomendaciones, opiniones y consejos :D

    De verdad, excelente post, me quedo con este parrafo:
    "Many soulmates are destined for an eternal search, not for lack of meeting, but rather lack of acceptance. The encounter is often analogous to the collision of matter and antimatter, a violent explosive reaction will occur, but if held through to completion only pure energy, and thus harmony, will result"

    Just love it.

    Como siempre, sigue asi mana, me encanta leerte y me ayuda muchisimo.
