Instant Connections - Infatuation or Soulmates?

Updated on August 17, 2011

Is there a difference between the instant “love at first sight” truth in our hearts and mere infatuation?

Do we feel desire so love can grow?

Is the mating of our souls so hard to believe in?


Yearning to be with you

Trying hard not to be blue


You say we must ignore

What’s been guided to explore


God showed the way

Was it only to dismay?

Lennon fell instantly in love

with the woman who'd set up a display: You had to climb the stairs, everything was black - then look to see only "yes"
with the woman who'd set up a display: You had to climb the stairs, everything was black - then look to see only "yes"

what he gained: "Woman"

The journey so far apart

Has little meaning unless we start


Your emotions are so torn

Perhaps they are too worn


This life has been so filled with anguish

Don’t want to believe it was to vanquish


The love we have been offered

As reward for all we suffered


Keep asking in my dreams

Is it really what it seems?


Waking each morn filled with joy and desire

Only to remember you’re in a quagmire…

The Colour Of My Love


Look into my eyes

Think of what you see

Read the soul that lies beyond

For that’s where you’ll find me…

      Never a stranger once we recognize a kindred spirit my dear Sir :) I could not have imagined a more befitting response than your profound words. In my admiration and respect for you, there is a love that transgresses the miles. You too be well dear friend :) My heart is warmed by your stopping by.

      Hello Stranger

      As always; well written Sylvia - wisdom both in prose and in comments.

      "Look into my eyes... Think of what you see..

      Read the soul that lies beyond... For that’s where you’ll find me…"

      "There exists no infatuation within..

      Just daily an echo so strongly whispering..

      I Love You... With those words; I ran from my fear."

      Be well my friend; take care of that heart.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting bc. I think you guys and your physical priorities are what keep the species going - that can be infatuation. We as women, are moved by our depth of feelings. Perhaps when we join, we each gain the benefit of the other and it becomes "true". In the east they say that "man is the head of the house, but woman the neck that turns him". There is a grander plan than the physical infatuation but if a man doesn't want to recognize the power of intuition, feeling and guidance - more often than not they are stuck with merely the guidance of a tiny little head :)

      Thanks so much for coming by dori! Parallel universes? Please keep in mind that there are reasons for everything. Sometimes, only through that depth of feeling can a mountain in our lives be moved. When it is meant to be, nothing can stop it. And when it's meant to be over, we can add that huge pearl of wisdom to our treasure chest of victories and awareness. Love you Girl :)

      If you feel it's a little of both someonewhoknows, it undoubtedly is. Can't say I've differentiated by astrological signs but the heart knows what the heart knows, as others have confirmed.

      Appreciate your visit and comment :)

      For some reason I've had several Taurus attractions in this life.Are we soulmates or is it just infatuation? I don't know but I tend to think it's a little of both.It may just be karma working it's way into my life.I know I'm attracted to them for both physical as well as spiritual reasons ,yet I couldn't tell you it's just one or the other.

      beautifully written SemPro and words are sometimes just that. You know when you have made that connection. You just know it in your heart.

      Aloha emohealer! Put me down as the first to want to get your book!!! If you want any help with editing, a few of us are exchanging that precious necessity. Would love your input on my own as well!

      Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. I do believe consciousness is raising to truly understand that age old wisdom > "as you go, so go I" - we are indeed connected. Wonderful timing on your part my dear :)

      Then to be truly One oscillationatend, we will soar to help the other side understand the words are irrelevant and most often misconstrued. The half that knows connects deeply, offering few words, only trust in what is.

      You know I love it when you visit :) you have always read the soul that lies beyond...

      Soul mates...I once scoffed at such a thing, but I'm half convinced it's possible.

      Kindred spirits indeed I*n*v*i*c*t*u*s however your expressions in poetry flow with all the trust, passion and wisdom of youthful innocense. All that flows from me is more in hopes of helping others think, feel, believe in and let go of whatever blocks that unencumbered doubtfree innocense :)

      It's all beautiful once we reach where love and our souls can soar freely. That is where you and I meet - to soar with those who've led, followed, or remained in that glorious harmony.

      I shall lightly touch down to blow a kiss on your pillow dear one - and fly by your side again when the sun arises :)

      The wisest of the wise seem to be checking in - thank you so much Brenda! Your advice is indeed deep and meaningful. Being true to oneself and recognizing a soul connection, do we protect ourselves by walking away if the other has disconnected or remains in a state of confusion? Or do we pursue the truth we feel attempting to help that person let go of doubt and fear?

      JJ you hit the nail on the head Darlin'! Trusting ourselves seems to be a state of being we lose for many years of our lives. As kids we feel everything before the words make sense. In learning those words, the contradictions diminish trust. Harriet Lerner has written volumes explaining the whys i.e. we ask our mom what's wrong, feeling her tension or anger and, thinking we are too little to explain it to, she lies, saying "nothing!" Which do we trust then? What we feel, or what we hear? What we see or what we know? The analyzations start - confusion reigns. We go through life hearing the "nothings" from others and in our state of confusion, the most potentially awesome and fulfilling experiences are no longer wonderful.

      Profound JJ! I shared one of my favorite lines in a forum last night that Patrick Swayze said in Point Break: "Fear will cause hesitation, and in that moment of hesitation, all our fears will come true."

      Ever feel as though you're just a pawn in someone else's play? I've had moments in my life where something came out of my mouth and I wondered where the heck it came from. I watch and realize the other person was in that moment of hesitation. Fear is a choice and usually the first one when trust is gone...

      Aloha to you dear Sir - thank you so much for adding your own insightful perceptions :)

      It sounds like the person in the poem is having serious doubts..... better to check feelings out before any commitent.....

      It is not kind to hurt other people but being true to oneself is also extremely important also.... in fact no one is going to guard our emotions so better to protect ourselves

      How deep and meaningful was that... that's what this meant to me anyway......

      Appreciate you reading and commenting Philipo. Yes, most have detached the physical from the spiritual and/or their emotions. Once we no longer act as a synergistic whole, I believe our physical desires become our primary concern - then it is indeed mere infatuation. Detached we aren't concerned with how our actions may affect others either - we don't consider or understand that the object of our pursuit may get hurt. This seems all too prevalent these days...

      There is no doubt in my mind that love at first sight exists. The beauty of love is that when one loves without reservation, "unconditionally", falling in love is one of the most fulfilling experiences we can have. Unfortunately, as with so many things, we tend to over-analyze these feelings out of fear, until we find fault with what we feel and it starts to turn into something less than wonderful.. I have often maintained that the logical order of life would be to be born old and grow younger each day so that we could enjoy our lifes lessons more fully.

      Aloha and mahalo my friend for yet another intuitive and perceptive hub.

      This is nice. Love is actully different from infatuation. Though people say there is love at first sight but I think it is mere infatuation.

      Beautiful. When our hearts are truly open, we connect on a soul level, we are always together. This doesn't leave us, we leave it by our duality. Love isn't desire. love just is.
