Worlds of imagination by Sara B. Gauldin
In today’s modern world, the concept of love has stretched and conformed to the needs of today. Of course, there are many kinds of love present within western culture; a parent’s love for a child, a child for a parent, a sibling for a sibling, a friend’s compassion for a peer, or a teacher for her students. But what has become of romantic love? In a time where the odds of divorce outweigh the chances of a successful marriage, has the concept of true and lasting love dwindled completely? From my perspective love that is deep and legitimate has remained constant. There is a change in societal constraints that allow relationships that cannot find this perfect harmony to form a rift. In another era, these marital complications would have to become part of a marriage rather than a reason for divorce.
I still believe in the existence of real love stories that are intermingled into the chaos of everyday life. This assumption begs another question; is love a spontaneous occurrence which happens when a relationship between kindred persons is allowed to grow and mature, or is there a possibility that some loves are so pure and unavoidable that they must truly be what we commonly refer to as soul mates?
I have been intrigued with the concept of soul mates for some time. Surely not everybody that you fall in love with, from your school yard sweet heart to your college love can all be your soul mate. That does not rule out the potential for any of these loves to be a soul mate, just not all of them. I believe that soul mates consist of two individuals who are constantly drawn to one another in an almost unavoidable fashion that leaves them little option for fulfillment or happiness when faced with the absence of the second party. Frankly, soul mates complete one another and complement one another to the extent that either individual feels incomplete without the other person.
Soul mates were designed to be for one another on earth. Their pull for one another is akin to a magnetic field. The attraction is a raw and primitive force that cannot be denied even with conscious effort.
I have included the ideology of soul mates in my Series The Corporeal Pull. My two main characters find that they are destined for one another despite being complete opposites. They are torn from each others presence, and their bond is tested in every way humanly possible and beyond, yet they are irrevocably drawn to one another in an unavoidable way. Their destinies intertwine at every turn because they are truly meant for one another.
