Ask the Author: Question & Response
In working on releasing judgment, an ongoing process for me at this time, I am currently aware that I tend to be accepting of people as individuals, in general. However, my judgment about systems currently in place is often great. I work as a clinician in a mental health clinic and find individual psychotherapy to be my rewarding purpose. But the obstacles presented by systems which are focused on paperwork details and oriented toward ruling people out rather than helping them makes me frustrated. I find myself complaining, along with my colleagues, in a manner that my wiser self knows is an error. I know that I am just resisting releasing the blockages, but wonder if there is any difference between judgment about systems rather than people?

To answer your question directly: yes, you can look into someone’s eyes and feel like soul mates right away. There can also be many other “triggers” that help you recognize a soul mate. A smile, a laugh, the way the person holds you, etc. The trigger might be one that was agreed to before birth, thus it will be specific to you both.
As to the number of soul mates we can have, that is also specific to the individual soul. You may have one, two, three or more. A “soul mate” is defined as someone with whom you have agreed to work with in an intense fashion in this lifetime.
My friend, when seen through the Godself, all human beings on this planet are your soul mates. When you look into someone’s eyes and feel like soul mates right away, it is because you have chosen to recognize the truth in him or her. This will happen to you as many times as you desire to recognize this truth in your brothers and sisters. Our soul mates are unlimited, unless you choose to place a limit on them.
Treat everyone you see and meet as your soul mate and you will start living in Heaven on Earth. Treat everyone as your soul mate and loving thoughts will replace all thoughts of loneliness, judgment and fear. Treat everyone as your soul mate and the same world that you once experienced as hard and painful, you will now experience as gentle and beautiful. For the more you treat people as your soul mates, the more you will be in touch with your own soul. And the more time you spend focusing on your soul, the more grateful you will be for remembering who you and your brothers and sisters truly are.
As your gratitude of every day and everyone grows, more moments of joy and peace will fill your day. As gratitude, peace and joy continue to fill your day and soul, your day and soul will begin to overflow with these energies and emotions. As they overflow, they will touch everything and everyone you come into contact with. As this occurs, you will fully realize that the choice to live in Heaven or Hell on this planet is yours.
