As Euripedes says, “TWO FRIENDS, ONE SOUL.”
Maybe it is only after great separation and longing that we are able to fully see and appreciate.
TWO CLAYS and ONE SOUL…
“When you find the person you love, an act of ancient recognition brings you together, might be by an accident….It is as if millions of years before the silence of nature broke, his or her clay and your clay lay side by side. Then, in the turning of the seasons, your one clay divided and separated.
SEPARATION OF THE FORMS….
You began to rise as distinct clay forms, each housing a different individuality and destiny. Without even knowing it, your SECRET MEMORY MOURNED your loss of each other.
SEARCHING FOR EACH OTHER…
While your clay selves wandered for thousands of years through the universe, your longing for each other never faded. This metaphor helps to explain how in the moment of friendship two souls suddenly recognize each other.
SUDDEN AWAKING BETWEEN US…
It could be a meeting on the street, or at a party, a lecture or just a simple, banal introduction, then, suddenly there is the flash of recognition and the embers of kinship glow. There is an awakening between you, a sense of ancient knowing. Love opens the door of ancient recognition.
You enter. You come home to each other at last.
MAYBE that’s why the lovers clay is divided.
MAYBE in finding that individual perspective separate of the other, in becoming whole into one’s own truth and loving the very fabric of one’s own being we become all that we need.
And in that moment of seeing our own truth we are able to recognize at long last the clay form of the other and are able fully open to them.
In this TOTAL LOVE FOR OUR OWN CLAY, even in the depths of our loneliness, at long last we can clearly see.
But how would we have ever known the path if not for the LONGING OF LONELINESS DEEP WITHIN?
Nothing about twin souls is taking the easy journey but about a spirit deep song that pulls you from somewhere beyond the horizon; it’s the beacon you can’t explain.
It’s not about halves. We need to be WHOLE WITHIN our truth to truly see our other.
It’s about being present with what is on our road and not hiding. It’s about owning what needs owning and stepping onto the path of our truth.
It’s about being in a place of embracing all of our shadows and our light. It’s about opening, trust and surrender.
When we pause from the truth of living who we authentically are,we hear the call deep within and the clarity of knowing.
From this place of wholeness and of love of self we are finally able to hear the ANCIENT CALL that has eternally been etched along our soul.
