What about Soul Mates?
By Harold Klemp
Q: I read in the book The Tiger’s Fang, by Paul Twitchell, about the topic of Soul mates, and it baffles me. Does that mean that every Soul will somehow find his Soul mate somewhere on the journey to Sugmad?
A: Your question does come up fairly often, so let’s take a look at it.
The confusion arises from something Paul Twitchell once wrote in chapter 6 of The Tiger’s Fang. There, he endorsed the idea. But Paul was then still a Master in training. His understanding was incomplete.
Later he strongly reversed himself in The ECK-Vidya, Ancient Science of Prophecy. You’ll surely want to read chapter 5, “The ECK-Vidya Theory of Time Twins.” He wrote it as a spiritually mature individual. Over the years, too, I have addressed this issue in a number of talks and writings.
The time-twin, or Soul-mate, theory is an occult invention. As such, it has no grounding in the ECK teachings. The masculine and feminine principles are within each one of us. But such a division, or separation, is a phenomenon of the lower worlds and does not exist in the higher ones.
Let’s look at the origin of the Soul-mate theory.
The Soul-mate theory arose because some people in early history were quite aware of an emptiness inside themselves. An individual with strong masculine forces driving him might feel an insensitivity to things. So he searched for a Soul mate with whom he’d feel like a whole being.
All that changes during Self-Realization. When an individual reaches the Soul Plane, the masculine and feminine principles unite within him. Then he is made whole.
Once you know the truth about this Soul-mate theory, you can save yourself a lot of heartache in selecting a mate.
