So many questions can evolve around a soul mate. For example is there such a person and if so does he/she live in the present time? Could a soul mate simply mean some kind of spiritual guide where someone, somehow, is watching over us? Does a soul mate have to be of the opposite sex to us or do our sexual inclinations dictate this? These are just a few of the questions regarding this subject. Once a soul mate has been identified, does it necessarily mean that there has to be romantic connections also? You may have guessed that I don't have the answers to this. However, when it came to writing "The Meadow", there was no ambiguity. We identified two souls who were inextricably bound to each other throughout eternity. Maybe this is the way people like to think of what true soul mates are. If so, you will enjoy what "The Meadow" has in store for you. - Mike O'Hare

A few years ago, I realized with great disappointment that I have never met my soul mate. Despite going through several very fulfilling emotional relationships with some wonderful people, there has never been a situation where I could have been one hundred percent in sync with any one of them. Despite the deep affinity, love and intimacy that I may have felt, I have never been comfortable enough to completely bare my soul in front of anyone without that tiniest bit of apprehension of their judgments. Never has there been anyone who seemed to be a part of my flesh and blood.
Some people use the term soul mate without attributing too much depth to it, as simply another being with whom one has a strong emotional bonding or intimacy. I strongly believe that the term has much more potential as an offshoot of the concept of Twin Soul or Twin Flame - the unique, one and only other half of one's soul, that one person who is a mirror of oneself and with whom one will not have any social pretensions. I feel it denotes a profound connection, which does not require the support of words or language; that it is almost a divine grace that Thomas Moore recognized as ""nothing more precious in life,"" someone who makes me complete and whom after meeting, my life's journey finds its destination.
One can even take the term as someone that you have had a degree of association with - in past, parallel or future lifetimes. Though this is primarily an oriental, mystic thought, it is not too far too understand the special bond one may feel for someone that we meet as a stranger on the road.
Many people like me realize at some point that that they have missed the experience of encountering their soul mates, and feel incomplete throughout their lives. They cannot find themselves and it's as if one piece of them is always missing. I think it's a precious gift to find your soul mate and that this union comes to those who are open to receiving it by abandoning themselves to their passions without any of society's social conditioning. As Leslie Parrish states, "A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are..."

THE MEADOW -- A SPIRITUAL ROMANCE
"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.
This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.
The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.
The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.
This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.
There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
