“At the beginning of creation, men and women were not as they are now; there was just one being, who was rather short, with a body and a neck, but his head had two faces, looking in different directions. It was as if two creatures had been glued back to back, with two sets of sex organs, four legs and four arms.
The Greek gods, however, were jealous, because this creature with four arms could work harder; with its two faces, it was always vigilant and could not be taken by surprise; and its four legs meant that it could stand or walk for long periods at a time without tiring. Even more dangerous was the fact that the creature had two different sets of sex organs and so needed no one else in order to continue reproducing.Zeus, the supreme lord of Olympus, said: “I have a plan to make these mortals lose some of their strength.”And he cut the creature in two with a lightning bolt, thus creating man and woman.
This greatly increased the population of the world, and, at the same time, disoriented and weakened its inhabitants, because now they had to search for their lost half and embrace it and, in that embrace, regain their former strength, their ability to avoid betrayal and the stamina to walk for long periods of time and to withstand hard work. That embrace in which the two bodies re-fuse to become one again is what we call sex”.
"A SOUL MATE”. A soul mate is someone who is just like you. A soul mate is someone who knows everything about you. A soul mate is someone who is there no matter what; a soul mate is someone who knows what you want without you saying it. A soul mate is the one who feels your happiness and sorrows over boundaries.
All these definitions were never good enough to make me believe in soul mates. I got my answer to what a soul mate is when I read this.
A person who makes you feel complete not only emotionally but physically. A person who ends your search. A person who is meant to be with you from forever is your soul mate!
It’s one of the most beautiful extract I have ever read about passion, sex and love - the three most important elements for any living thing in this world!
