Sometimes you meet someone and know something right away.
Call it a connection.
Whatever you name it, it’s strong and almost immediate.
Scares you a bit.
Makes you question whether you are rational.
Because you are thinking of this person constantly.
Have care and concern for them.
Worry about their well being, health and general happiness.
How can you be sane when you feel these things?
And feel them for someone who for all intents and purposes is a complete stranger.
Some people call it meeting your soul mate.
There is a part in the book Eat, Love, Pray where Richard from Texas gives his definition of the term.
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants.
But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back,
the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”
And I think this sort of thing just happens.
All of a sudden.
It has to be fast or else your ego will show up and put an end to all the “foolishness”.
Your ego will convince you that not only do you not know this stranger.
You don’t even need to start poking around in your own psyche.
I mean have you seriously fallen off the deep end??
Kind of like that first big drop on a roller coaster.
It feels so good and so scary.
And it all happens so fast…
