Spiritual Connections
Question:

How do you know if you are spiritually connected or karmic connected to someone? Many times I thought I had a spiritual connection to somebody and it turned out to be a karmic bond. Now I don't know what to believe. The same happened with synchronicity events. I thought they were a gift from the Universe, and they ended up being just expression of my unconscious mind. Could you please explain me what happened? Or clear this up for me?! Thanks!


Response:

Life and relationships are not divided into spiritual and karmic parts. All our connections with people are spiritual and they are also karmic. Spiritual development occurs through the awakening of consciousness and that is how we heal and transform our past with its limitations that we see as karma. So karmic situations and unconscious reflections serve our spiritual unfoldment if we allow it, just as much as insight and noticing spiritual synchronicities.

Love,
Deepak

I`ve known this guy for about eleven years, we`ve dated twice and the last time we dated was five years ago, last year he told me he loved me and about seven months ago I decided to kick him out of my life because he admitted to me that he wasn`t going to let me be happy with anyone else, but i`ve never gotten over him, i`ll tell myself i`m over him and then a few months later i`ll start having dreams of me and him and then i start missing him, it`s been this way for the past 5 to 7 years, what does this mean?

@Deepak and everyone else that has questioned the nature of my comments... Yogini\'s comment perfectly backs up my previous posts of... why can\'t you communicate on a level that is not academic spouting as your following is so large and diverse..... step off the pedestal and speak in plain english....I understand it but occassionally I have found your posts to be more ego than modest......
