Philosophy #24: Romanticism

Romanticism was an artistic revolt against aristocratic social and political norms of the Age of Enlightenment and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature. Romanticism placed new emphasis on such emotions as trepidation, horror, terror, and awe – especially that which is experienced in confronting the sublimity of untamed nature. Romanticism was rooted in the German Sturm und Drang movement, which prized intuition and emotion over Enlightenment rationalism.

Spirituality #3: Soul Mates

“So what is a soul mate? In my experience, this is what really defines a soul mate:

-Soul mates are your best friends. They’re also your romantic and sexual partners. (You can also have very deep connections with friends, family members and animals – I refer to these as soul friends – but other people also refer to them as soul mates).

-Soul mates are your mirrors. They reflect back to you your own flaws, insecurities, dreams and strengths to help you grow to the fullest. You can rely on them to be honest with you, completely honest, even to the point of not sparing your feelings because they care about you that much.

-Soul mates are your spiritual catalysts. They don’t complete you, but they do help you to become the best version of yourself possible. Why don’t they complete you? Because you are already complete at your core, and throughout the course of your life you are in the process of rediscovering that.

-Soul mates are your confidants and teachers. Sometimes the lessons they teach are intentional, but often the lessons they teach are unintentional and are a by-product of your relationship with them. Because they understand you so deeply, soul mates also make powerful confidants, helping you through tough times and inspiring you to do and be your very best.

-Soul mates feel very “familiar.” This is possibly because you have spent many past lives with them. Something between the two of you just clicks, as though you have been friends and lovers forever.

-Soul mates often know you better than you know yourself. Therefore, they can empathize with you at a core level.

-Soul mates vibrate at the same frequency as you. This is just a fancy way of saying that soul mates not only share your likes, tastes and goals, but they also share your deeper life values, beliefs and dreams. You both “get” each other on a DNA level.

-Soul mates love you unconditionally. You also love them unconditionally. Although it may not be possible for soul mates to always stay together, it is impossible for soul mates to harbor feelings of hatred for each other for long periods of time. Despite what they do, you still love them, and they still love you.

-Soul mates aren’t perfect. They have their annoying flaws, gross habits and strange quirks, but they are still amazing people deep down.

-Soul mates aren’t always immediately recognizable. Love at first sight isn’t a myth, but it also isn’t the only way you can discover who your soul mate is. Often soul mates appear in various “disguises” in our lives.

-Soul mates don’t always stay with you for a lifetime. This is an extremely harmful myth that I’d love to squash once and for all! Soul mates don’t always stay until the end, but this is not a bad thing. We like to think that our lovers will be there forever because it is a comforting and sentimental thought. But sometimes life has different plans for us. Unfortunately the destruction of this ideal has wrought untold amounts of misery in people’s lives that I have witnessed firsthand. Sometimes soul mates are there for only a season, and sometimes they are there for a lifetime. But whatever the case, enjoy the ride.

-There is the possibility to find multiple soul mates – although most people only tend to find one person who they are deeply compatible with. I personally have never had more than one soul mate/twin flame, so I can’t speak from experience. But I have known other people who have claimed to have had multiple profound relationships.”

“Relationships – It’s more than just the dates, holding hands, and kissing. It’s not about how many times you utter ‘I love you.’ It’s not about overdoing on Valentine’s Day. Not long hugs or writing love notes. It’s about accepting each other’s weirdness and flaws. It’s about being yourself and finding happiness together. It’s about seeing an imperfect person perfectly.” — Unknown

Just You & Me

Just you and me,

Gazing in silent awe at the vast cosmos that is the night sky,

On this spinning rock hurling through space,

We are talking monkeys flying on a spaceship,

We came out of a vagina portal into another dimension,

Smoking and bonding together like we did in ancient times,

The smoke raises my vibration and I see things differently,

The world is softer round the edges,

Downloads of information come to me,

My head is exploding with ideas and then they disappear and drift away,

You are next to me in your own universe, let’s join our universes for a while,

We are in our own bubble, our own universe,

I glance at you and you look at me,

I want to howl for the pain I have caused you,

You still have nightmares that I feel guilty for even though they aren’t my fears,

But we look at eachother and I recognise myself in your eyes, I see the dios, I see the god in you,

Our eyes are the doorway to the soul,

Here we are,

We found eachother through synchonistic means,

Our life tapestries weaving together,

And we take the last puff and walk away from this blissful countryside vastness,

We drive, I see the way you navigate, you were born to be a top sporter,

I wish you could have had those opportunities without having to go through the immense pain you had in your life.

But we wouldn’t be here right now together,

Our maker has a divine plan that we canot comprehend,

We drive and I am the DJ, I feel like I take over the music, I should let you play your vibrations.

I love staring out of the window knowing that you are beside me, are my secret armour, you will protect me,

And I know I should feel safe within myself,

But the trauma I experienced has fucked me up,

I see you try and understand me,

I see me trying to understand you,

You smell so good,

Take your arms and hold me my darling. Sweetness. Blessed.
