Two souls that have been created by God as one can never be separated by anyone, nothing can keep them apart when they are made for each other. They recognize each other with absolute certainty and, once they have found each other, they cannot be separated.
A human being meets their twin soul twelve times during their entire earthly existence, including all their incarnations, and more often than not this meeting is fatal to them both, for there is no place in human lives for perfect love, the right conditions do not exist.
Do not misunderstand me: the fact that your husband or wife is far from being your twin soul is no reason to leave him or her! That is the moment to realize that you are two associates who came together to work, to accomplish a task that must be done, and you must be together until you are parted by death.
Our twin soul is our higher self, with which we must unite
Philosophically speaking, we could say that our twin soul is our higher self, our opposite pole. If we are here on the earth below, the other pole must be above, where God and his Angels are, in heaven in all its perfection and plenitude.
That is what disciples were taught in the mysteries of initiation: how to become one with the other pole. In India, what is called Jnani-Yoga teaches a method thanks to which the yogi unites with their higher self… and eventually, with God himself. The same idea can be found in Greece, in-scribed on the facade of the Delphic Temple: Know Thyself.
Every spiritual doctrine teaches humans to use the faculties of their minds to climb as high as possible above the physical, material world into the world of Light where the principle of our higher self will lead us to godhood. In this way we create an affinity, a sympathetic link with the complementary principle. It is the only way to find God.
Our twin soul links us to the heavenly Father and the divine Mother
Woman finds God through man because he represents the male principle, which is linked to the heavenly Father; man finds God through the feminine principle, through woman, thus becoming linked with nature herself, the divine Mother. Without the feminine principle (which he lacks), man has no impetus, no inspiration, no desire, nothing; without the masculine principle (which she lacks), woman remains inert, useless, sterile and without form.
If we have no beauty inside, then we will not see it around us!
We all seek our kindred soul or spirit, but, as Initiatic Science tells us, we cannot find on the outside what we have not already found inside, we will pass it by without noticing. The more beauty we possess inwardly, the more beauty we will perceive on the physical plane. If we are not sufficiently developed, if we have no beauty inside, then we will not see it around us nor even recognize its existence! If we have inner beauty, we will see it everywhere, because the outer world is a reflection of the inner world.
