Soulmate Quotes: QUOTATION – Image: Quotes Of the day – Life Quote The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake. “The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that's not the one. When you meet your 'soul mate'. There's an old Buddhist saying that, when you meet your soulmate, remember that the act to bring you together was years in the making. So always.
Obviously, the observer will have found in the above why there is no easy answer: It very well might! For most purposes, it then looks like Buddhism agrees that soul mates are possible for a while, as a shared delusion! But as the awareness of the streams of consciousness might increase, this mirage will not last forever: Now, as you might have guessed from the above, clinging and habits and tendencies and fake reassurance are involved… so suffering is involved.
Yes, out of clinging to a myth… a myth promoting the idea that happiness is dependent on something or someone else.
The cessation of suffering relies on the cessation of ignorance, lust and aversion. It relies on responding to circumstances instead of assuming certainties: Pay attention to subtle changes, subtle signs, every kind word, each beautiful sight… and life might just turn out more blissful than you believed it could ever be!
Buddhism has one message for everyone: And you can be happy! So… others out in the environment share a delusion that a soul mate completes them. In this delusional mindset you meet another person who also believes in this same delusion.

You have a relationship based on this idea. Both of you miss the whole point, which is that you alone are loved, perfect, whole from the start.
The certainties that we cling to cause us suffering and get us out of the present. Is this in the ball park what you are saying?

If so, I like the ideas and concepts. Hard to do in practice. Lots of conditioning movies, holidays not to mention a human biological drive for us to procreate and gain stability. For me personally, they feel more like intellectual ideas that I want to believe and do believe at some level, but are hard to muster in real life.
I do believe awakening happens in practice. And I believe that spirituality can be practical. I do believe at a spiritual level about presence, the delusion attachments you refer to, and that we are all complete and perfect. So, there is no problem with my intellect getting it and even believing and wanting what you are suggesting. However, after reading your post, I saw my husband and gave him a hug.
Perhaps, a shared delusion. However, after many years of working as a psychotherapist with people who have relationship problems I have to say: This is particularly important for women who have a tendency to disregard the law of an even deal to their own disadvantage. Romance and erotic energy work best if a woman enjoys her femininity and a man enjoys his masculinity.
Then both partners can start the romantic and erotic dance that is possible only if two people are delightfully different. The archetypal romantic gesture is when the male gives to the female and if the female receives gracefully. This is not an attack on the victories of feminism but simply appreciates what most people find romantically and erotically fulfilling.
Buddhist - Love and Soul mates: A conversation with a Buddhist Teacher ( Denis Wallez)
The Unavoidable Merging-Process Between Two People in a Sexual Relationship Many people do not realise just how much two partners can hold each other back in their overall happiness. Being in a sexual relationship is like sitting in one emotional boat where you can only float or sink together.
Unfortunately, it is the partner who is more unloving who will determine the overall atmosphere of a couple. This is due to the fact that negative emotions are more dominant than positive ones.

- You don’t need a soul-mate to be happy (Denis Wallez)
Soulmates have agreed to follow the advice of the happier and wiser partner who is in this role may often change so that the couple as a whole can develop in amazing leaps and starts and bring wonderful things to the world. In my work as a counselor I have found that every problem in a relationship can be traced back to violating one of these four basic dynamics. On the other hand, if these areas of a relationship are positively in place both people will be very happy.
