Our souls communicate with other souls naturally. When you meet your soulmate, you feel instant love as I did on that first date with Patricia. I felt there was something special between us. That is because we were tied together from birth with the red string of Fate. Our souls had been communicating for many years before we met physically.
Our souls when we are asleep or meditating or during the Eucharist can connect with our departed spouse as well as with God and the communion of saints. This is part of the soul’s incredible healing power. Your soul connects with God to teach you His wisdom and to bless you. This is Christ and the Word within you. Your soul is united with your soulmate (if you are lucky enough to have found her) in marriage – joined together as one by God. Pat and I are still independent persons but we are one marriage entity. Love as well as the sacrament of marriage joined our hearts and souls together forever.
Pat and I have the same spiritual foundation. Our beliefs and religious practices are the same – she was fully committed to the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. We had the same spiritual ideas, basic practices and desire for spiritual growth. Pat was however, more advanced than I, having read Northrop Frye On Christianity, early Tom Harper and C. S. Lewis. She believed in the WORD OF GOD being Christ not the Bible – she was very interested in meditating to learn and receive peace and comfort. We fit together as if we were meant to be and of course we were – being tied together by the red string of Fate forever. We were in a mutual state of harmony holding hands right up to the end and stealing kisses in public when we thought no one was looking.
Our souls don’t die along with the body and of course our love lives on. The soul continues to exist as quantum – the sub-atomic level, and leaves the body after a person dies. It continues as the other third of our marriage entity as well as in Christ’s arms as two thousand years of Christianity teaches. It is the spontaneous, externally generated contact of our deceased loved one within us that many of us feel after the death of a beloved spouse.
Having just written this, this morning, gone to Church and just come home from Communion, I realize that I don’t have to seek reunion with Pat because we are still united – everything I have been writing, points out that nothing has changed: God joined us in matrimony forever. Love is stronger than death; we still love. Death was trying to trick me into believing we had lost the connection. Being in Christ’s arms and also dwelling in me, Pat realized that I would eventually discover that nothing has changed – we are still an eternal marriage trinity. This explains her “On my birthday I turn 71 but I am happy because my beloved Eric will join me.” My realization just now is my joining her or rather my re- awaking to her. She dwells in me and I dwell in her forever – that is reality. I do not have to die to join Pat; just wake to this reality – nothing has changed.
