Higher Source versus High Standard
Instead of defining a soul mate as a human being with certain characteristics, turn instead to defining a higher source—I call it God, the source of spiritual love and truth. The trick is not to confuse the higher source with a high standard of what a relationship should be like.
High standards circumscribe a person’s character, financial situation, and habits—all things that flux before our blinking eyes. The higher source, however, encompasses an infinite supply of all that makes for a beautiful, progressive, bonding relationship. See your unity with God and watch it expand to include others.
