People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone
wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you
everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your
own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever
meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to
live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come
into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a
little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart
open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control
that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your
Eat, Pray, Love
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

May the blessings which flow in all weddings
be gathered, God, together in our wedding!
The blessings of the Night of Power,
month of fasting
festival to break the fast
the blessings of the meeting of Adam and Eve
the blessings of the meeting of Joseph and Jacob
the blessings of gazing on the paradise of all abodes
and yet another blessing which cannot be put in words:
fruitful scattering of joy
the children of the Shayak
In companionship and happiness
you be like milk and honey
in union and fidelity,
like sugar and halva.
May the blessings of those who toast
the one who pours the wine
anoint the ones who said Amen and
one who said the prayer.
