Met mine, but we ended it tonight. Sucks...

By the time I got to the end of this extraordinarily long thread that really said amazingly little I was sure it was satire.
I mean no one that's had any real life experience can believe in this twin flame stuff. Already assigning yourself lifetimes of imprisonment to get her?
I mean despite my cynical jaded heart I really am a true romantic. I love and have loved a few women but the perfect man or woman is a fairy-tale best done by Disney.
Originally posted by bestintentionsThis is the circle of confusion which technically becomes moot. You see, the twins SHOW us the connection. First we meet "other people", then we meet what we think are "soul mates", then we meet Twins and Near Twins and Karmic Twins and parallels. etc. All of these experiences "prepare" us for the eventual understanding of ONENESS. That we are connected to the ALL. A fabric.

seagrass, please, i would like to hear your opinion
i have heard it many times mentioned in the past, but did not pay too much attention to it -- the possibility that (as i have heard it phrased) often a person is sent that mimics a twin soul relationship but actually only prepares a person for the real twin experience (i know the change within oneself is important, but still………). i remember you mentioned you had more than one twin soul experience
and…… i also have come across the idea, that you can actually experience and meet someone who is part of your own soul. they are called ‘parallel souls’ or ‘near twin’ which i believe to be an enormously profound experience, maybe even more so than a twin flame experience. this might be an even clearer mirror one encounters to figure out the pain and joy within what is perceived as duality and also one’s experiences with oneness, not necessarily toward humanity as such but specifically in a union with an other person
i believe this parallel soul brings the possibility to experience oneness to its most capacity within duality, even more so than a twin flame which could leave space for duality and relationship, a total union between two people including the physical - whereas, as i believe to have experienced, is not at all possible with a parallel twin
have you any ideas about any of this
Originally posted by bestintentionsI agree with you that one has to be at an evolved level to have a Twin experience, my purpose in saying that everyone can is because I believe everyone, every soul will eventually as they evolve. But there are degrees to this, I have found. Because it has increased, accelerated, and compounded. I suppose I cannot agree with the total union aspect of it because I have not experienced it. The only wholesome oneness I have found has been alone. Perhaps that is my eventual path, and perhaps with more "work" I will be able to reach that level. Mine is only a mental understanding, a lifestyle I am trying to live, but have not reached that level completely in my heart. Other wise if I was at that level, I would be attracting that. And I am not. I am attracting those who are questioning and seeking and searching, be cause that is my "mirror" right now. My level.

thank you so much for your reply that made me think and contemplate hard and made me see more clearly what is relevant for me - and this is where i differ to your perception :
i am convinced that if one has not been able to experience oneness to a very evolved level already one does not meet any twins. i think, to know oneness is a prerogative to the twin experience. (i perceive everybody and everything as a teacher holding the mirror for me, but would not go as far as calling that a twin.)
i think that the twin experience does further one to bring the experience of oneness to yet higher levels. and only when one has reached that certain level one is able to form a relationship with a loved one (irrelevant whether this is the twin, an other twin or whoever) to be in total union and create together the experience of a wholesome oneness on the path to perfection of what the human condition is.
i thank you again very much in providing the resistance for me to be able to find my resolution more clearly.
i thank everybody here in this and other threads to be inspirational !
