Soul Potential

Did you ever wonder why you fall crazy in love with a partner and love everything about him or her and as time goes by day by day you start to see his/her flaws and wonder why you never saw them before? I've heard the complaints of many and I myself have had this happen many times over. After sitting with this, I realized that I was falling in love with their soul potential. It was like I could see through the veil and I could catch a glimpse of who they really are, and what they came here to do. I knew at that point I was falling in love with their potential. In my eyes seeing everyone’s soul potential was so juicy. I guess it never occurred to me that they wouldn't be able to live it here. I always held space for them to step into their purpose, but as I’ve learned you can't force anyone and why should I ever care? As I am always overboard with my purpose, you can't judge anyone else for their choices. Everyone is entitled to choose their own path but it's sad to me sometimes. If we all came here to do something unique to each of us, why can't we just do it?

I remember reading a book by Marianne Williamson, Enchanted Love. In the book, some new Angels are observing people on Earth with some old veteran Angels. They observe that more than anything, this girl wants to meet her Soulmate love. She talks about it, prays, visualizes it, and still can't seem to meet him. Finally, things are lining up and she meets him and decides she’s just too busy with earthly things to make an effort. the little angel says, “Why would she do this? She has been waiting her whole life to meet her Soulmate and live her soul purpose and now she walks away. How sad.” The older Angel says, “Don't worry they will come back and have hundreds of lifetimes to get it right.” I remember in that moment feeling horrified. Maybe it happened to me where I ignored my purpose. I remember I could feel it in my body and it was so sad to me.

I've realized since then that I have to make sure I love the human and not just the soul potential. Best case scenario, they are able to live up to their soul potential. Worst case, you have a loving partner that really appreciates you and lives their life to the fullest.

They both don’t sound so bad. Next time you're looking for a partner make sure you love them for them and do gratitude instead of feeling the lack of them falling short from what you think they should be doing. It will make a world of difference.
