“It just so happens that sorrow is a great obstacle for words;it stops them from flowing out of your mouth or pen. Even the more pressing ones. One’s life could be in grave danger, and it would still be a superhuman effort just to ask for help.”
Love Predestination. Twin Flames. Soulmates. Are they the same thing? I guess it depends on what you believe.
This is a small book which at first glance might look like a quick read. I took my time to savor it. I read the introduction twice. The story of how the book came together was as important to me, as what the book is about. Maybe, even more so.
The narrator is a widower and writing to his deceased wife, his twin flame. In a series of letters, the first one dated May 22nd, 1999, he explains how through his extensive searching of old religious writings, sage books, ancient wisdom, and even her own library of books, how they are twin flames. He explains how even in her death they will never be parted and gives reasons based upon the searching he has done why this is.
One might say this is the ramblings of a grieving spouse or a demented old man. I found this not to be the case. The narrator appears to be of sound mind in his writings to his deceased spouse. He gives intelligent reasoning and thought to what he writes to her, even if some of it I may or may not agree with.
His letters are loving, beautiful, filled with longing, and hope. He talks about their love before she died and the things they did together. He clearly loved her before her death.
It is worth the read even if you don’t believe in twin flames or soulmates.
If only every one of us could experience a love like this.
