Quote: Love at First Sight

wild_carnation-wallpaper-1366x768

“I believe
in love at first sight
but I will always believe
that the people
we love
we have loved before.
Many, many, many times before
and when we stumble
through grace and circumstance
and that brilliant illusion of choice
to finally meet them again,
we feel it faster
each time through.
The one glance
that set life alight
is two sets of two eyes
staring through the layers
of lifetimes and stolen glances
and first kisses and hands held;
the brace against the weight
and unrelenting tide
of waiting.
I believe
in love at first sight
but am not burdened with the misconception
that it’s a first sight
at all.”

― Tyler Knott Gregson

Quotes About Soulmate Lovers

Have you ever met someone for the first time, but in your heart you feel as if you’ve met them before? – JoAnne Kenrick

Instructions are never included. They vary with the strength of your ability to see, the measure of your selective blindness, the limits of your mercy, and the intensity of your desire. – Vera Nazarian

For some people, “the point of no return” begins at the very moment their souls become aware of each others’ existence. – C. JoyBell C.

We were not making love, we did not even kiss, but the inexplicable intimacy we shared left us wordlessly and hopelessly locked into each other’s gaze. – Jasmine Dubroff

I believe in the immeasurable power of love, that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance. – Steve Maraboli

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. –  Dr. Seuss

It is completely possible to have conscious connection through the heart (beyond the experience of the body) with your Twin Flame. This can be experienced in meditation or simply in quiet times of repose. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

The true Twin Flame experience is accessed from within you in still moments through divine feeling, through meditation, through a deep opening of the heart. This sometimes takes the form of ecstatic waves or pulsations of energy moving through the body. Or, you may have the distinct feeling of another being in your energy field or a sense of conversations that may come in word-thoughts or simply through silent unspoken understanding. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

Coming together in relationship on Earth that is a reflection of one’s Twin Flame, the true Twin Flame from the Moment of Creation, has nothing to do with gender in the body on Earth. The important thing is that in every relationship reflecting a Twin Flame connection, one half is carrying the Divine Masculine and one half is carrying the Divine Feminine. This refers not to gender, but to the grand forces of Creation. These people may both be in female bodies, or both be in male bodies. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

As you radiate soul love you may feel a shift in yourself. Some of you will feel this shift as an “aha,” a release, or a feeling of greater love. You may feel a physical sensation of some sort, such as a lessening of tension somewhere in your body. You may discern a change in your attitude. All of these are indications that your heart centers are awakening. – Soul Love / Sanaya Roman

A soul mate is not found. A soul mate is recognized. – Vironika Tugaleva

Before you find your soul mate, you must first discover your soul. – Charles F. Glassman

A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. – Richard Bach

We recognize a soulmate by the supreme level of comfort and security we feel with that person. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t issues that remain to be ironed out. Rather, it means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect. – Linda Brady

A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves. – Edgar Cayce

I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out. – Roy Croft

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. – Elizabeth Gilbert

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. – Bruce Lee

A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. – Thomas Moore

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along. – Rumi

Poems by Rainer Maria Rilke

water_lily_macro_2-wallpaper-1366x768

Moving Forward

The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now,
That I can see farther into paintings.
I feel closer to what language can’t reach.
With my senses, as with birds, I climb
into the windy heaven, out of the oak,
in the ponds broken off from the sky
my falling sinks, as if standing on fishes.

The Lovers

See how in their veins all becomes spirit:
into each other they mature and grow.
Like axles, their forms tremblingly orbit,
round which it whirls, bewitching and aglow.
Thirsters, and they receive drink,
watchers, and see: they receive sight.
Let them into one another sink
so as to endure each other outright.

Water Lily

My whole life is mine, but whoever says so
will deprive me, for it is infinite.
The ripple of water, the shade of the sky
are mine; it is still the same, my life.

No desire opens me: I am full,
I never close myself with refusal-
in the rhythm of my daily soul
I do not desire-I am moved;

by being moved I exert my empire,
making the dreams of night real:
into my body at the bottom of the water
I attract the beyonds of mirrors…

– Translated by A. Poulin
