1. Do we all have a so-called soul mate that will accompany us through eternity, with some necessary gaps?
My interpretation of soul mate isn't a mate like in reality that you enjoy their company and do things together that interest you,
its a connection that "we" have with each other, so we are all each others soul mates its just that a realization is made between two when on a
higher platonic level both seem to in sync that they feel as though they have found themselves in another.
Basically my answer is Yes we all have so called Soul mates that accompany us through eternity.
2. Will we continue to change as we continue through eternity>
The soul or our conscious awareness of our soul?
Our awareness of the soul will change and does constantly,
The soul itself is the soul, the heart, the center of reality for our philosophical thinking so it cannot change only our awareness of it can in my
opinion of coarse.
3. Does eternity actually exist?
That is relative to ones beliefs and/or scientific research of reality.
Is there endless time or is time endless?
Eternity from a philosophical view does exist, its debated and discussed the world over.
From a scientific view there is still a way to go to actually say it exists as there are many debates in the scientific community about the beginning
of the universe and what was before and what sparked was lit to get it all started. There are theories that are the front runners as explanations go
but nothing to encompass an answer fully where there a no holes to the question of does eternity exist,
Everything exists, whether its in the mind of man or in his hand.
4. Was there a time when each of us did not exist, and if so how did we begin to exist?
As individual souls I believe the answer is yes,
The second part is something I wish not impose my thoughts on anyone so as to not influence or interfere with their search for that answer which can
only be found by the individual themselves either by being guided or by having the ambition strong enough to have the discovery. I cannot guide
because my path is for me, others might have different foot ware on so they might not be able to walk the same path as I do and would be negative from
me to guide when I myself have not reached the destination to say whether my path was correct for myself.
How and why? are answers each will have that suit them.
5. Do you welcome eternity with open arms?
No when there is pain and grief
Yes when there is joy and happiness
What are your answers to these questions OP,
I must assume these are questions you are pondering, reason for the thread,
Where do you stand with these questions you want us to give our feedback on?
Great question to ponder, but like anything take it in moderation other wise you can loose your mind trying to find answers, sometimes we are not
meant to understand and our purpose is to question and keep questioning.
