Chapter OneLOVE: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
From the beginning of time, it was of love, is of love, and always will be of love.
Love has been on the search engines for all of eternity. Search engines, you might ask? Think about it for just a moment. How many times have you heard someone say, or even asked you themselves: "When will I find my true love?" Or maybe you know someone that seemingly has a perfect partner or spouse. Then one day out of the blue one or the other make that shocking statement, "Oh it's great, but, something is missing! Maybe that someone is you! And maybe not.
It's a proven fact that if you have not connected to your Twin Flame or a Top Level Soul Mate, there will always be pieces that just don't fit! The love you have envisioned and the completeness of spirit just isn't there. Or is it? Have you and your spouse, partner in life, or significant other taken the time to really know who each of you are? Think about that for a moment.
When we look for a place to live, we check out the history of the dwelling and its surroundings. Does it feel good? Why does it feel good? Is it safe? Who lived there before? Why did they move? This is a major move in your life. Such a thing is an investment in your future, in your life path.
You're thinking about investing your savings. Setting up security for our future is all important, right? We need to do a little research, shop around, and see what's available for long term. Something that would be safe and reliable; something that would be there in place for you in the wonderful twilight years of your life when youth fades and health sometimes fails us. Are you starting to get the picture?
One more scenario:
You finally have a chance to get a decent car. Not a new one, but that's okay! Vintage is sometimes a good thing. You have an allotted amount of funds. You need something economical, yet big enough to carpool when needed. Low mileage would certainly be a plus and wear and tear is always something to consider. Has the vehicle been well-maintained? There's so much to consider. And in considering this car, you know it needs to last at least five years. Wow. A lot of decisions we human beings have to make in this linear life!
How are we doing so far? Are we connecting the dots yet? We think you're starting to see the bigger picture!
In saying this, we have worked with numerous clients on finding their true connection. It's baffling that at least 74% of those we come in contact with have not even put one third of the time, effort, and/or research in finding the one they want to share their life with forever than they would in finding a used car to last for a few years! Some people get some sort of feeling not really sure of what this feeling means and before you know it, they're moving in together, flying off to Las Vegas to get married, or immediately planning a life together.
When the question of "Why do you feel this is your Twin Flame, Soul Mate, or life partner?" is asked, we get a variety of answers. We may hear: "Well I love him/her" ... or "I don't know I just do" ... or some other answer with no words of explanation to support the answer or the thought process. Occasionally, there are those who say: "He/she gives me everything I ask for" ... or "He/she doesn't care where I go or what I do". And of course, we would be remiss if we didn't mention this one: "I'm not getting any younger. Time is running out"!
But then, another look demonstrates the expansion of confusion. Online, you can find as many Twin Flames and Soul Mates that you can hold on your social networking web page. Everybody wants to be your Twin Flame. Everyone wants to be your Soul Mate. And seemingly, they have all reasons to justify why this just has to be the case!
Please don't get us wrong here. We have both been on that path and we freely admit that sometimes, different feelings can and do trick the mind and the heart! Before you know it, confusion sets in. Sometimes other feelings get involved and get in the way of the knowing of true connecting spirits! Although upon the true divine connection of your Twin Flame, false feelings turn to truth. A total sense of all knowing bursts forth: with no confusion, no doubt, and a feeling of being complete!
In reading this book, we hope to give you, our valued reader and newest friend, clarity to your vision. We intend to aid you in understanding the truth in one's self! We will show you the difference between a Twin Flame and a Soul Mate. We will examine the difference between an Upper Level Soul Mate and a Lower Level Soul Mate. Sometimes there are many levels of Soul Mates, and we will talk about those in depth. And of course, we will teach you the meaning of being a Kindred Spirit. To all of these things, the answers can be found within these pages.
Whether you are with your Twin Flame, Upper or Lower Level Soul Mate, or Kindred Spirit, you have picked up the answers to your questions. Maybe you are actively searching and need some guidance. Or perhaps you are just researching; and are interested in the connection of spirit. Whatever your purpose, you did not pick this book up by chance. There is something here for everyone.
Our prayer for you is that you connect first to the love within yourself; which in doing so, will give you the ultimate connection to your higher power. Further, we pray that you connect to your Twin Flame (if they are, indeed, in this Life). If your Twin Flame is not currently in the world, then we will show you how to connect astrally to him/her through meditations). If your Twin Flame is not here at this time, our prayer is that you connect to your top Soul Mate in the linear. Our ultimate prayer in divine light is that you find what we have: completeness in divine truth and light!
Remember there is no certain place, time, or bridge to cross. And there is no certain way to be. So just be!
Different Views of Love
Over eons of time, great love stories have continued to top the charts, as they aid us in our blurred vision of our one true love. Great loves have been portrayed in all generations from the beginning of time.
Many of us relate to these movies as they stir the great emotions that have been with us since our lives began. Some look at the fairy tale aspect of the love story; while others look at the purity and innocence like in the movie "My Girl", a story of sweet young love and true connection. A great example of the love of true self is seen in the movie "Pretty Woman". Julie Roberts's character was depicted in the process of coming to grips with her True Inner Self; and in doing so, she connected to her true love! Some people are interested in the darker aspects of love; such as in seen in the movie "Twilight". In "Twilight", love is forbidden and unreachable without consequences.
Of course, there are the controversial love stories like "A Patch of Blue", "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", and "Save The Last Dance". In these movies, the excitement of love is just a position against society taboos. The theme of haunting love from the past is addressed in the movies "Somewhere In Time" and "A Portrait Of Jenny". Last but not least, the movie "Titanic" offers a compelling vision of by-any-means, unconditional, undying, totally connected love. The lists could go on all day. But let's talk about love!
There are many definitions of love; with each one singularly defined. At the end of this segment, we would like for you to take a moment to write down what love means to you! How do you perceive it? After all, you are the one who matters; and that's why we are striving to assist you in finding your own answers. Let's do a little probing, settle in, and explore some concepts of what others see love as.
Compared to other states of emotion, love has been unusually difficult to define consistently. There are many complexities involved in feelings involved. Sometimes this confusion is linked to the variety of uses of the word love. The meanings defined, the various states of mind, and the many mixed messages we receive in a society all help to contribute to the confusion.
In the creative arts, love, the concept of love, and various forms of love are among the most common themes.
In the scientific community, there are many views on this topic. We feel one statement summarizes a few things as quoted in a statement by Dr. Andrew Newberg, a Neuroscientist. Pertaining to studies shown, Dr. Newburg stated: "Those that are infatuated with love show a resemblance to those with mental illness in their brain scans, adding the fact that love created activity in the same areas of the brain where hunger, thirst and drug cravings react. That love was similar to drug addiction, for without love Humanity would die out. Therefore, determining that new love could possibly be more physical than emotional, while mellowing out in time, mainly in long-term commitments." Let's contemplate that for a moment.
When love is new, it's awesome! We have been told by recovering and non-recovered addicts that this is exactly how it was when they first started using. Very interesting! Love, as in drugs, only takes something small at first, but the more you get, the more you want. What does that mean? The more you want, the more you need. That's where the expectations come in. You expect more from your partner to feel the same as you did in the beginning. But like the drug, if it's not natural and felt without inducement, then you better look again.
Robert Browning once quoted: "Grow old with me, the best is yet to be." And pertaining to love, the great William Shakespeare said: "Love comforteth like sunshine after rain."
Let's examine the ideal of unconditional love.
Many believe that this is non-existent and unattainable. There is no doubt that individuals who feel this way have not connected to their Twin Flame and/or Top Level Soul Mate.
There are different types of unconditional love.
Some of you may ask: What exactly is unconditional love? Simply put, unconditional love separates an individual from his/her normal patterns of behaviors. Such a love is perfect: such as the child of The Highest Power. As humans, we sometimes exhibit behaviors that are unacceptable.
Here's an example:
Your neighbor gives you a small, very loving, and very adorable pet as a gift. Its playful nature captures your heart. Sometime later, your new pet has an accident on your newly polished floor. You don't stop loving the pet; but you develop a form of training to modify the pet's behavior so that it uses the place designated.
Our children, from conception, form bonds of love that are incredible. As they are born and grow, they exhibit an array of behaviors. Imagine a child pouring sugar all over the kitchen ... or breaking your favorite keepsake. We as parents don't stop loving our children; we resolve to take the steps to guide and teach them properly.
An example pertaining to falling in love:
Sometimes, the answer to completeness is in falling in love. This is not always the case, however. Why is this, you ask. After all, falling in love is falling in love, right? It's not quite that simple. At times, it's just falling. Let us be a bit more precise.
In some situations, our spouse or life partner may exhibit behaviors that are not healthy for us. Maybe it's drugs or alcoholism, or domestic violence. In many cases, the partner being mistreated may profess a great love for their partner in spite of the hurtful acts he/she has endured. And according to their personal definition of what love is, their feelings actually register as what we all generally consider love. Those that have not experienced this might ask: "Why?" Is this really love? That's an excellent question! At least you're asking. Moving beyond this factor is vital in moving forward in your relationship: be it current or in the future. Unfortunately, many stay stuck in this part of their path and it gets harder to distinguish truth. In moving through this, we find it is possible to realize genuine feelings of truth and connection regarding love.
The distinction between conditional love and unconditional love has confused and baffled countless people. Conditional love is earned on a basis of conscious or unconscious conditions expected of a partner or spouse. By comparison, unconditional love is given freely: no matter what! conditional love requires an exchange, put simply as: "I Love you if ..." or, "As long as you ...". Unconditional love is seen as infinite, measureless, and effortless!
Sadly, according to Dr. David R. Hawkin in "Map Of Consciousness", he says: "Only .04 percent of the World's population ever reach this level of consciousness and Love."
Looking at this from a religious perspective:
GOD loves all with an unconditional and everlasting love! As we sum up our different perspectives of love, the late, great civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.—was quoted as saying: "I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality."
Inner Journey Moment
Okay, before we continue, take a moment for yourself. Close your eyes for a moment and reflect on what you have just read. Truly, Think about it, but only for a moment. Now think about you; and your present state of mind, body, and spirit. Think about love as you see it. Most important, how you feel about it!
When your mind wanders there, how does it make you feel? Be honest; don't go to the place on your wish list, or what you may pretend it to be. Other than The Angels around you, no one else is here. Just you and these life changing pages and written words you hold in your hand. No one to judge you, no one to question you about your feelings, and no one to criticize you. Your feelings are real and the driving source of your divine spirit. They do matter. Yes, that's it! Your feelings, your inner journey is the point of focus. Now that wasn't too bad, was it? Or maybe it was. We understand! As we too had to work through some painful moments to get to where we are today! So it's okay! Whatever you are feeling, feel it! And if it is painful, release it. You don't need it anymore. Say goodbye to it forever. It's important to tap into these feelings and thoughts when they surface as it is vital in processing and removing the negatives and strengthening the positives. Take out a clean sheet of paper and something to write with. Now we would like for you to write down your thoughts on love. What is love to you? What do you feel it would take for you to be complete?

Technical Support: Hello! Thank you for calling. How may I assist you today?
Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install love. Can you guide me through the process?
Technical Support: Yes, I can definitely help you do so. Are you ready to proceed?
Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?
Technical Support: The first step is to open your heart. Have you located your heart?
Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install love while they are running?
Technical Support: What other programs are running, if I may ask?
Customer: Let's see: I have past hurts, low self-esteem, grudges, and resentment running right now.
Technical Support: No problem. Love will gradually erase past hurts from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt your current programs. Love will eventually override low self-esteem with a module of its own called high self-awareness. However, you have to completely turn off grudge and resentment. Those programs prevent love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?
Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?
Technical Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until grudge and resentment have been completely erased from your system.
