Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along. ~ Rumi
Anyone of significance who has come into my life has come into it via synchronicity. I’ve bumped into people and formed meaningful friendships with them. I’ve met others in the most unexpected ways and found myself in romantic relationships with them. It is my belief that if you are meant to meet someone, you’re going to. And if you’re really meant to be with someone as part of a soul contract, there is an electrifying feeling upon meeting this person.
When you meet someone you have a soul contract with, you just feel it. It’s almost as if a part of you innately knows this person – many people would say it’s just a feeling of automatically clicking with that person.
There are several degrees to this click factor — with some people, we instantly find common interests. With others, we can bulldoze through the small talk and jump straight into personal topics. Then, there are a few souls we encounter throughout our lifetime, those we are drawn to like magnets. It’s a rare and treasured moment when you meet one of these souls and just “know” there is something under the surface. A lesson to be learned. A sacred love to be shared.
Some of these people come and teach us something and are gone quite quickly. But others are meant to be in our lives for the long-haul. We are ongoing evolutionary, in-process, growing beings. Wouldn’t it make sense to view our relationships in the same way?
As I listened to Robert Ohotto’s radio show last week, he said relationships are verbs, not nouns. What he had to say about it made a lot of sense to me. Robert says the healthiest relationships are born out of the sense that “we are in a verb dynamic with each other, not a noun.” In other words, you have to do things to make your relationship work. It’s not a thing so much as a series of actions every.single.day. Makes sense, right?
In all aspects of life, it’s the journey that is most important. We learn the most through walking the various paths we take on this journey we call life. Sure, we have destinations we are aiming for: a great job, a home, family, financial stability. But it’s the journey that our souls are interested in, not so much the destination. It’s the verbs, not the nouns, in other words.
Try to remain open to the discovery of the soul through your relationships as a process that is never finished. What sort of things do you do to ensure that all of your relationships stay in verb-mode and aren’t just nouns?
