Question by ♈ Grrrr ♈: What is your Moon/Venus & your definition of a “soul mate”, “twin flame” and a “life partner”?
Are they different people or do they all mean the same thing to you?
BQ: Do you think people put too much emphasis on these terms?
Answer by ‡ La Couture Lioness ™
I think they’re all pretty much the same for the most part; perhaps with small differences but nothing big. For the purpose of answering this Q, I will use the term “soul mate” because it’s my favorite 🙂
To me, a soul mate is someone who truly gets inside your mind and your heart and it’s all effortless; you feel like you’ve known that person your whole life and just know that you are not meant to be apart. You feel like you are totally “in step” with that person; psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and physcially and your feelings trascend anything “earthly”. There’s no bounds of time or space; just one continuous journey and all spoken words are like a musical melody. Even arguments sound beautiful in their own way because they are weaving your temperments together.
BQ: No; I think people don’t put ENOUGH emphasis on these terms. Soul mates together make a beautiful picture. The sad thing is, many people will never find theirs because they are looking in the wrong place or looking altogether. The best things come to those are not waiting and not looking.
What do you think? Answer below!

It is the nature of soul to grow, to heal, and to love. As we enter into the world, we emerge as a tiny child. We are open. We do not have conditions placed on us by our parents or ourselves. We have not closed ourselves off from any possibility. It is though the world lay at our feet. We are a bundle of unconditioned purity.
As we age, conditions are placed on us to direct us along our paths intended to keep us from harm. Even if we manage to stay out of harms way, we move into a state of stimulus-response reactions toward life. This draws us further and further away from the natural state of pure being we came into the world with as an infant.
How can we return to our natural state of being? How can we call our soul back and gain a sense of spiritual well-being? The following are ways we can return to the wholeness and healing we seek as spiritual beings incarnated into the human race:
1. Do Something Creative.
Creativity engages our heart, our mind, and our imagination. These activities allow us to utilize our whole being. Our attention moves from outer expressions of the world and enters the inner dynamics of living giving rise to our heart and our imagination. When our heart and our imagination are given attention, we enter into the realm of insight. Insight is our ability to see from within just how sacred and magical our lives really are.
In the realm of soul, our humanity becomes sacred. Through creativity we are aware how life flows through us and not from us. The more we identify with these qualities of attention flowing through us, the more we are identifying with qualities residing in us that are whole and healing. It is our natural state.
2. Spend Time With A Child.
Children have a way of drawing our attention away from activities and responsibilities defining us as adults. All a child wants to do in this world is have fun. They seem to never tire of such activities. Children are constantly motivated by play.
As adults, we tend to think of play as wasted time. Adults who lose a sense of play and joy in their lives are in danger of losing self-motivation. The kind of self-motivation I am referring to involves the desire to have fun in life. This can lead to a depressive state lacking creativity, spontaneity, and the heart of a child.
Each of us has the heart of a child within us that never tires. It is the part of us fully participating in and with life. As our imagination and heart begin to guide us over the mind, we are in soul. In soul, our mind is in its proper perspective. This part of us is our inner awareness not bound by the pressures of the world. When we return to soul, the possibility of living whole and healed becomes a reality.
3. Become A Child.
The next time you look into a child’s eyes try to feel their heart. Notice the difference and similarities of your heart and their heart. Is there a difference? Is this awareness a long or short distance from where you were as a child?
What happened to that little boy or little girl inside you? Since we cannot retrieve childhood physically, maybe we can from within. Remember your past as a child – the good times and the bad times. As you look at your life through the eyes of a child, recall how active your heart and imagination were. Embrace it. Let this inner vision penetrate your entire awareness. Let go of your adult interpretations of your childhood and view it with innocence and love.
Our true nature is to live in the world without being fully of it. Inside us are endless avenues that can move us toward the experience of joy. When we let go of our tendency to view the world as right or wrong, good or bad, we leave behind dualism and enter into Unity.
This Unity behind all appearances of diversity is a healing state of unconditional love. It is the part of us bringing all life into being, leading us through life, and what will lead us home. It is the force of nature giving us life. It is our soul.

Question by Jaydens dads dominatrix: T.S. Eliot wrote: ” I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope?
For hope would be hope for the wrong things; wait without love
For love would be the love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.”
Ran across these words again today, from one of my favorite grad.school classes. Was suprised to see this what I call “non thought” defined as “the discipline of meditation.” This is where my mind has been taking me lately, simply or not so simply (ha ha),somehow letting go of expectations.It seems a “safe” and positive sort of thing to do, but I did not perceive this to be a form of meditation. Your thoughts, please? Thank you.

That is beautiful, I had not come across it before. I will have to think without thinking about it. ;^)

?To write a great story, you have to live one,? says avid skier and author Wayne Sheldrake (http://www.WayneSheldrake.com). This October he?s setting out to share that incredible story with the debut of his book ”Instant Karma: The Heart and Soul of a Ski Bum” (Ghost Road Press, October, 2007), a tribute to all who have daydreamed of, or survived, a life literally on the edge. In the form of a vivid memoir, “Instant Karma” captures the visceral and spiritual sensuousness and elation of skiing.
More than just another book about skiing, “Instant Karma” is an inspirational story of survival and personal redemption. Sheldrake examines his place in the close community of ski bums, people who give up ?normality? to live on their own terms.
Featuring a foreword by best-selling author Steven Kotler (”West of Jesus: Surfing, Science, and the Origins of Belief”), “Instant Karma” follows Sheldrake through many thrilling mishaps and escapades, including knife fights, fake electrocutions, near-fatal collisions, open heart surgeries, and finally, love.
Sheldrake?s is a life of recklessness and restlessness, dedicated to adventure, courage, and the pure joy of second and third chances. “Instant Karma” maps the hidden trails of virgin snow and conjures the rush of hucking off cornices and skiing blind in sudden snowstorms with exacting detail, all the while finding his way to understanding and accepting the powerful bonds of romance, friendship and learning to let go.
In Sheldrake?s universe, ?instant karma? is what happens when we believe our grandest passion can?t be separated from the everyday, and then live in accordance with that faith.

“The Psyche of Interaction” is a new philosophical book that proves through concrete evidence that the soul actually and absolutely exists.
Included in this amazing new work is a picture of a person’s soul, taken by way of an aura camera. In June of 2000, the author was still trying to find the connection between colors, archetypes, emotions, numbers and the unconscious and conscious intervals. While experimenting with the aura camera and by asking individuals to visualize themselves in a cave, or by the ocean, i.e., Mother archetypal thought concepts of origin, etc.; in order, to see if the color, blue, would show up in their auras.
There she transposed (i.e., mentally just popped into his mind for a nan-o-second), with her nephew Alex, (who was 16 years old at the time); in order to see, (feel), if he was in a cave in his mind. She felt that he was and took the picture. They waited a minute, or so, for it to develop – it’s just regular Kodak film – and, then peeled back the cover. She handed it to him – without really looking at it.
He said, “This isn’t me – it’s you.”
Well, more accurately, it was Alex – with blue in his aura and the author in front of him. Her image was all white, and it was her probably 1/2 an hour to an hour prior to that time when she had her head cocked to one side with the phone on her shoulder, talking to someone. This is mentioned because it is empirical proof of the soul, and the linear – succession of images that we create for this reality. She was literally caught on film, because she had become Alex for a split second, and her energy combined with his to produce the photo. In order, for the aura camera to take your picture, you have to be in front of the camera (she was behind it and the tripod.), and your hands have to be on the 2 sensor boxes, which feed your electrical energy through the computer that the aura camera is hooked up to.)
The author has studied and arranged the data that makes up this composition for over twenty years. In search of a comprehensive structure in which to understand the nature of the paranormal phenomena that she has experienced since she was two years old.
