it reminds me of the story about shiva and shakti - where shiva is going insane because he's tired of reincarnating for all infinity - he stops eating and starts wishing he wont have to reincarnate anymore - and in the story they say "a terrible fire grows in him and almost destroys the entire universe" but then he meets his shakti and falls in love and wants to keep living - i've also read the reverse story also where it's about kali going loco instead of shiva -
anyway if u think about it - ultimately we all add up to one consciousness - so that's a universe that is one eternal consciousness in infinite solitary cofinement - so then there's this nifty "physical" creation with ego - where if ego gets out of control in either direction (either too big or too small) it ruins everthing - but when it's in balance we have soul mates and friends and companionship and we can be one and many at the same time -
anyway this is my current understanding of reality - and i know it sounds a little bit morbid - but for me i try to understand where my existential angst might be coming from - and that helps me forgive myself for the times i throw temper tantrums - helps me get out of them faster too -
anyway speaking of multiples i love this forum so glad to join!!!!
but with all the stories about twin flame type situations from india - for me im still curious if there are twin flames - but i like the idea that there are so many people who we can have awesome levels of understanding with/and even romantic possibilities - that's easier than thinking oh i have to find my twin flame in every incarnation (i have had that problem myself at least in this incarnation so good to see another option) !
