Well, the family is on their way. I just got the email from Gramma (my gramma uses email – isn’t she cool??) informing me that they were picking her up at 9am PST before heading out to the border state of Arizona. I have to go through the whole day knowing they’ll be traveling diligently down the road coming towards Taos for MY wedding . . . I still can’t quite believe I’m getting married. This time for real. I guess to most people, a “real” wedding means legal papers, tax write-offs, to get the loan for the house, car, or whatever. Well, that’s not the point of my wedding.
We already have a house, and two cars, he has two grown kids and I don’t really need any little ones – yet (I may adopt in the distant future). The point of this ceremony is to bond our spirits together, and we’ll become one – inside – like the eagles who choose their mates for life. No paperwork required for that, I shouldn’t think. Don’t need to change my name through our government to make me happy about the event itself. The person I’m marrying is so special, and the way we met and discovered each other is so unusual . . . we must have been made for each other, we figure.
I think according to Edgar Cayce, the existence of soul mates is real. It’s just not exactly what most people think. Most tend to think of a soul mate as a soul split from yours and cast out into the world, and we spend all our lifetimes trying to find that person. This is a common misconception. Cayce said that we could possibly have more than one soul mate, as such an entity described is simply a soul that we have experienced many lifetimes with – and not necessarily as a lover either.
It’s like soul mates are your best friends over the lifetimes and re-existences on Earth. I think it’s nice knowing we have more than one. Whole groups of souls that you’ve probably known before are with you right now, or still out there waiting to be found again by the effects and roads of life. The readings of Edgar Cayce are very interesting, and cover SO much on our internal histories and potentials. Really worth a read if you haven’t discovered it yet.
His books, which were never written by him actually, are mostly dictations or verbatim archives of the readings Mr. Cayce did for people. Very interesting fellow.
