The Kindred Spirits in Life

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Enriched with sustenance, my soul soars, enlivened by the connections that life affords in the form of kindred spirits. This connection is so profoundly felt, a deep empathy and trust that required no verification, no questioning is obvious. These people in ones life remain in the heart regardless of physical distance or time. They are simply part of us and in a broader sense an example of how we are all connected, our souls the fragments of an interconnected whole.

Many times in life we meet these people, and often we don’t know them at all but have this deep connection that can't be explained. I believe in the idea of reincarnation and the evolution of the soul, each soul living various lives and circumstances to progress spiritually. I believe further that we often carry some memory of previous incarnations and these people we meet, we have met before. These people are kindred spirits, embracing a connection that has greater meaning than we may accept.

These people enrich our lives without even being there, and the mere sound of their voice brings them back as if they had never left. When we are together there is a natural flow that happens little elsewhere and can be felt, a deep feeling of contentment and happiness just imbues us and sharpens our connection with living. Kindred souls are a blessing and can be a loving connection for life and beyond.

Conversely I have people that I cannot be with, that stir feelings of anger and repulsion for no apparent reason. I believe that many of these people are from past life connections, having been in opposing forces or the like. The feelings are so raw and forceful and one has to quietly put them into perspective, otherwise we could make a fool of ourselves. These people could be the nicest people in the world in this life, and our rejection of them seemingly absurd. I have experienced many such incidents and it always amazes me how confronting and challenging it is.

There may not be many of these connections in life, but I believe we all experience these unexplained feeling with people we meet. From them, some of our most intimate and rewarding friendships can develop, and we should be aware of these feelings when they occur. For however unexpected and strange they are, there is a reason that is worth exploring.
