Spiritual Unite: Can Soulmates Feel Each Other?
Can soulmates feel each other? The soulmate relationship is a soul level relationship that we share with people whose souls have come from the same oversoul.

Patheos-Pagan: Morning Meditation with Robin
Here I sit in my spot at the back window, first cup of hot coffee in hand, watching the comings and goings through the back yard.

“What is your need to eat the seed,
When growth might be so sweet?”
-Ann Wickham, 1915
Ah, this sounds almost like an offer, doesn’t it? Maybe we have a choice – instant, yet temporary satisfaction now – or a more long-lasting and genuine appreciation if we but wait a little bit. Patience brings its own rewards. When we are children, we want everything NOW! It is difficult for us to sit still and wait for anything. But as the years go by, we understand that some things are worth the wait. We begin to put great value on patience.
