I recently ran across a woman, Christina, who I’d known decades ago, when she was married to Jim.
Now, she is married to Chuck.
It’s a common story, isn’t it? People get married young, and then by the time they figure out who they really are, they realize that the partnership that worked (or didn’t work) for their younger self, can’t continue as the partnership for the older self.
They outgrow the first relationship.
The karma is complete, or can’t be completed.
They can’t grow, if they stay.
Neither can the other person.
Lot of us have been there.
Yet what I found most interesting in this case, is that Chuck seemed so unlikely a partner for Christina.
She was deeply liberal, a rabble rouser, an activist.
He was deeply traditional, a toe-the-liner, a community builder.
She dressed in sports gear. He wore suits.
She was tiny and feisty. He was large and relaxed.
She was agnostic. He was Catholic.
At first glance, it seemed like they wouldn’t have anything in common.
That’s when I realized: what we see on the outside of a relationship has nothing to do with what’s on the inside.
A true partnership between two people is all about the Souls of those involved involved.
In that way, all of the outside elements: the affiliations, the styles, the ideologies, even the personality characteristics don’t matter.
When we get older, we start to know who we are on a Soul level. This makes it easier to overlook all the outer trappings of another Soul.
The Soul agreement is recognized, beyond all else.
