What is a soulmate?

In the Western world we talk about finding our soulmate to marry. "He is my soulmate" or" I like him but I don't know if he is my soulmate", these are statements many people make in the search for love.

However, in the Eastern philosophy, a soulmate is someone who will be with you through many lives and will travel down the same paths with you time and time again as you experience incarnation. They are the ones who will stand with you through the all the troubles and challenges you face and understand, without being told, the many things that make you the individual you are. You are as 'one' with that person. It can be a man or a woman! This is the big difference between our Western ways. In the Eastern way you can find a husband or a wife and choose them for many reasons - love, looks or even wealth! But you would not necessarily expect them to be your soulmate. In fact it is consider dangerous because if they leave you or the marriage goes wrong, you will be left without your soulmate for all eternity. You will have lost your closest spiritual partner and will have to find your way alone.

Many eastern people find it bewildering to understand this emphasis put on 'finding' or 'marrying'the soulmate.They beleive the soulmate will find you as destiny plans.
It is because the idea found its way into America during the sixities interest in Indian things but in fact it was a 'watered down' version. It has somehow stuck in its incomplete form to represent the perfect love, when in fact it is the perfect friend. So don't despair if you don't find your 'soulmate'. Leave that to Fate. But the perfect love? That's a whole different ball game!

Its 6:16am, Thanksgiving day.. I just woke up from a wonderful dream.. but it was also horrible.. If i was still with her it would have been the best dream i ever had but because she is gone it was like torture. Well here it goes.. Ill explain more later if u want to know.

Im in Dothan, Al again. Im at West telemarketing.. they have called me back to ask me to take back over my team and I have accepted. I get in there and we have a discussion and I lay down the rules for them and go over the new projects in a quick blur. None of them have a ride home.. so i pull out my school bus and take them home. on the way there we stop at a gas station and my friend gets out with me to go inside. Well while im there the gas station attendant asks me if i want to come back to work there and i said sure. all the sudden this trucker im not sure who it is.. he isnt even a trucker he stole an 18 wheeler. but he rams cars all around us no breaks or nothing he is just plowing through people and buildings. Me and my friend get into the cooler and hunker down. He rams the tanks an then the building... everything is blowing up around us. I get out and sneak out and pull a move from halo 2 haha.. I hide in a corner and wait for the truck to pass me i grab on to it and pull him out and take over the truck. and drive off with my friend again. Im badly injured so we pull over and i keep asking for angie.. now my friend leaves me there to die because there are tornados coming. All the sudden a truck pulls up and its Bryan... angie's nephew. He puts me in the truck an takes off.. there are tonadoes dropping all around us and behind us and some right under us picking the truck up.. he shoots for the interstate and pulls up in some alley with buildings all around it and ramps in it.. and i get out he tells me to wait here he's gonna go get the rest of the family. all the sudden i hear a noise.. its Taylor's voice.. angie's daughter. i run to look and see where she is and i see her.. angie.. standing there. Just like it was the first time ive ever seen her. her hair waving in the wind.. her eyes looking down into the depths of my soul... her smile brightning the sky pushing the storm away. I run to her and just hoping for a little hug or something.. and she embrasses me in the most amazing kiss and i feel like im floating away.. one of those galaxy moving type kisses me and her always had. she wraps her arms around me and holds me close and whispers into my ear "i love you and i never want to be without u again" and slips a ring around my finger. the girls run to me and wrap their arms around me and we embrace eachother in a big family hug.

I woke up crying and im still crying now.. i just came to type this in because my friend chris said that it would be a good thing for me to do. The worst part is is im seeing someone right now who loves me.. i tell her i love her but sometimes i think i really dont because its like i dont feel anything anymore but pain for me and angie's relationship. its been over a year and almost all the time i can suppress my feelings and emotions.. but when you have a dream like that u get devistated.. the worst thing is it happens a lot.

Anyone have an interpretation for this dream?

I don't really know if I would still be believing in soulmates but after reading some astrology reports and some experiences from some other blogs and forums, there are instances that makes me think that maybe I have met my soulmate, what made me not believe so much is that if she was my soul mate, why did we had to part ways? why did she have to be so far away from me now?
