You will sometimes meet someone you believe is a soul mate; you feel the connection on many levels, perhaps instantly. And as you get to know each other more, you begin to feel the connection deepen and you feel that you must have an arrangement with this person that predated this lifetime.
Do not assume, however, that this soul connection necessarily means that you are meant to be happily together for this lifetime. It may be that you are meant to be friends and allies, helping each other out. It may be that you are going to help each other in ways that even involve conflict and separation, but with an end result that is beneficial to you. It may be that you are going to learn some lesson from each other and then go your separate ways.
Each moment exists for its time and then moves on into the past. And each moment that is, was the future a moment before, as time flows and your life passes, this precious life, this one life that you are living at the moment.
And so, in this flow of time and life, two things are true: one is that nothing is ever lost and you have chance after chance after chance, as this life flows into another and as you are lifted up into the great oneness in which there is no time passing, simply being. The other thing that is true at the same time is that this moment, this one right here, right now, is precious and unique, and there will never again, in this life or another to come, be another moment exactly like this one, where you and those around you are this exact manifestation of personality and body, where the sun and stars are exactly like this, where that leaf on that tree drifts down through the air in exactly this way.
This morning we have a message from a power animal that I know well. I first met him years ago when I was doing power animal retrievals, then again more recently in my Power Animal Adventures. He is an enormous sperm whale known as The Ancient One; it is always so wonderful to hear from him. And is now our way, Quado has added a few words at the end of his message.
Immerse yourself in gratitude, for this is the liquid that will dissolve the old hurts and ways of being. This is the healer, this gratitude, deep loving gratitude for life itself. Let everything dissolve and dissolve into gratitude until you are only your most essential self.
I choose to be one with all that is, in deep peace. I choose to move with the flow, to enjoy the feel of the water, to breathe the water and let it direct my life. I choose to be one with the stream and to live in complete harmony with all that is in my world.
