One of my favourite dialogues from the Sex and the city movie is “Some love stories aren’t epic novels, some are short stories. But, that doesn’t make them any less filled with love”.
But here I am not only talking about love stories which transcend into a relationship, I am talking about the ones which may have lasted for just a few minutes or even seconds like a conversation or a glance exchanged with a stranger. The ecstasy you experience in those moments which isn’t accompanied by any kind of need or greed! The state of trance filled with unconditional love!!
Those who are aware of spirituality, must have figured out that these are nothing but meetings with a soul from the same soul family whose connection in this human form isn’t necessary for the lessons to be learnt, but those meetings nevertheless ignite some kind of happiness, hope, strength, faith etc within us. There is an absence of any kind of fear or doubt. These moments where our alter ego/ shadow self has been successfully overcome by our innate awareness of being one!
And I guess having this feeling for every soul around, be it a ferocious animal or an ant, is what self-realisation is truly about!
