Twin Flame or Soul and It’s Origin
So ancient is the desire of one another which is implanted in us, reuniting our original nature, seeking to make one of two, and to heal the state of man. – Plato, Symposium
The concept of having a “Twin Flame” originated in Plato’s mythic dialogue entitled “The Symposium” In which he wrote that human beings originally had two faces, four arms, and four legs. Under the threat of being overpowered, the gods split them in half, creating the humans we see today. Hence, it is thought that we all have one “twin” soul out there in the world.
Humans are very social beings. We strive for a general sense of togetherness and belonging. We’ll always prefer being with our best friend rather than be alone with anything. Whenever we come across something new or unheard of, we become curious and ask more about it. When we find out something new, we eagerly look for somebody to share it with.
On this journey of curiosity and discovery and sharing our inferences, nothing can be as wonderful as finding somebody who actually does appreciate what we have to say or share. What is even better is when they seem like that one person who was meant to be your best friend. It is almost like finding a soul mate, but not quite. This person is you, but in a different body. They call it ‘finding your twin flame’. This person is your Twin Flame: you, but also not you.
Finding this person could be the most amazing feeling, and there are enough articles out there that efficiently romanticize it, making you desperate to a certain extent to experience this seemingly hypes of a moment.
It is each person’s take on this, but here are a few overlooked facts that you might want to consider in case you are wondering about when you’ll have your moment:
Meeting your Twin Flame could feel like something that has happened before; just like it could feel like it was something meant to be. It could be like a déjà vu. Like talking to yourself, only you aren’t before a mirror anymore and it is not your washroom suite this time. You can find yourself wondering why you haven’t met this person before: this is who you are supposed to be living your life with.
Irrespective of the fact if you are comfortable with making eye-contact or not, doing so with your Twin Flame is easy. Looking into their eyes could become a natural thing for you; just like being and talking with them. Their eyes might become easy mirrors for you that tell you over time about what they really mean, or feel.
Easy becomes the definition of the entire experience of being with them. There are no pretenses and no behavioral expectations. The connection is very intuitive, where you don’t quite wonder from time to time about what you should do in some particular situation. It is like a sixth sense.
The time you spend with them is equally easy-going. It is not the worst moment of your life, but it might also not be the best. It is calm, peaceful, fun and devoid of any extremes. You could imagine it to be something akin to spending a nice day with your best friend. Upon describing it to somebody else, it might not have the same effect as the experience you had.
Your feeling or emotions towards the other person, also, cannot be easily describable. You might be willing to make the ultimate sacrifices if they need so of you, and they might be willing to go to whatever means for your good, but yet, it might be hard to title your emotions with stereotypical words.Some might argue that it is love in its purest form: the love towards your best friend, your Twin Flame.These may end up being the people you choose as your life-partner, but there are equal chances of that not happening so. Every person has their own preference for that role, and for you or your Twin Flame, somebody similar to themselves/ yourself may not be what is desired.
Similarly, your Twin Flame should not be mistaken with somebody who satisfies your materialistic (or, in other words, fleshly) desires. That has to be their personal preference, as much as it should be yours, for that to happen. Even when it does, that is not what the Twin Flame connection is all about: it becomes an experience you both chose to have, and not one that was meant to be.
