80 Soulmate Quotes to Express How You Truly Feel

Many go through life hoping that they would end up with the person they are meant to be with – their soulmate. It’s not just the fairy tale stories about princes and princesses that have made people believe in love at first sight and happily ever after.

People have been chasing this romantic ideal for ages, perhaps since the dawn of time. The idea of a soulmate is quite prominent in various cultures and religious practices across the globe. Even though the concept has been around for thousands of years, the definition of soulmate differs depending on which culture or religion you consult.

 

Greek Mythology

soulmate quotes

Around 2,400 years ago, Plato wrote The Symposium. It details his crazy yet charming philosophies about love, friendship, and intimacy, among other things. Plato, through a playwright named Aristophanes, tells the origins of love, as well as soulmates. He said in the beginning, mankind had four hands, four feet, and two faces that were facing opposite directions.

The primeval ancestor of humankind could walk upright, move forward, and move backward. However, they were much stronger, so much so that the gods felt threatened by their strength and might. Some wanted to eradicate them, but Zeus only desired to humble humanity. 

Zeus and the rest of the gods decided to split humans into two, forcing them to roam the earth alone, always longing for their other half. The quest for wholeness is, therefore, a primal desire, according to Plato.

 

Buddhism

soulmate quotes

Buddhists believe in reincarnation, an endless cycle that is determined by people’s actions or Karma. As people are reborn, relationships with parents, siblings, and lovers may often be carried over to the next lifetime.

Soulmates are kindred spirits that are drawn to each other every time they are reborn. They don’t necessarily have to be lovers. The bond between twins is believed to be the strongest connection.  

Quite often, this idea of reincarnation is romanticized in films and novels. However, this kind of attachment goes against Buddhist teachings. Buddhists believe attachments hinder people from attaining enlightenment and, in turn, break the endless cycle of reincarnation. 

 

Hinduism

soulmate quotes

Although rebirth is also a major tenet in Hinduism, their views on soulmates differ widely from Buddhism. Their cycle of reincarnation is divided into four eras.

A person is reincarnated seven times in one entire cycle. Much like in Buddhism, soulmates are perceived to be bonded souls that reunite again and again, in each lifetime. However, in Hindu culture, soulmates positively influence each other. 

The deep bond shared between soulmates enables them to grow and achieve their full potential. They influence one another to serve a higher purpose in their lifetime. In Hinduism, couples can also take turns being reborn as male or female.

 

Judaism

soulmate quotes

The contents of the Torah were passed down through generations by word of mouth before it was finally written down in 70CE. ‘Bashert,’ a Yiddish word that roughly translates to destiny, is mentioned within the sacred texts.

The term is often used to refer to one’s divinely destined partner in life. Until today, there is still some debate about ‘bashert’s etymology. Some say it comes from the German word ‘beschert or bestowed, while others argue that it comes from the ‘sher,’ a Yiddish word for scissors. 

In Judaism, the notion of soulmates originates from the Talmud. There, the sage Rav specifies that 40 days before a child is conceived, a voice from heaven proclaims that a couple is destined to be together.

Although that declaration is accepted as the origin of soulmates in Judaism, the notion is discussed in other sacred texts.  

 

Taoism

soulmate quotes

There are two fundamental doctrines of Taoism: Yin, negative feminine energy, which is characterized as passive, earthy, dark, and cold, and Yang, positive masculine energy, which is characterized as heavenly, bright, and hot.

Yin and Yang is a symbol of harmony. They are two halves that make a complete whole. According to this ancient Chinese philosophy, everything in this world is governed by the concept of yin and yang. This includes love. Two forces that can complement each other and can work together in complete harmony are meant to be together.

While the concept of soulmates and its purpose in the lives of people differ according to which culture or religion you consult, its existence cannot be denied.

120 Inspirational Time Quotes To Help You Manage Life

We’re all given 24 hours in a day. However, what we do with it varies from one person to another. Some may choose to spend a huge chunk of those hours working. While a good number of folks prefer to spend it hanging out with friends and family. Then there are people who can’t seem to fit all their tasks in a day.

But what is time exactly, and why are there individuals who seem pretty good at managing theirs?

 

The Time Management Paradox

spend time with friends

Believe it or not, you’ve felt this way too, at some point: you finally have all the time in the world, but then the harder it is to actually manage it.

A good example would be college life. For students at university for instance, they’re happy to find that they can now fully control where their hours go to. They can choose which classes to take, if they want to join clubs, whether or not they will party for the night, or if they want to take on a part-time job. However, the more freedom they have, the more difficult it is to manage time in general.

That’s because when faced with the options to study, attend parties, finish group projects, or catch up on some reading, it’s simpler to just get a good night’s sleep or watch videos on YouTube. It’s true when they said that with ‘more freedom means more responsibility’. If no one is pushing or mandating what you do with your day, it can be challenging to complete important tasks.

 

Urgent vs. Important

Time management is attainable. But it can be cumbersome to find the right system that suits you. There are all kinds of methods for helping folks deal with a loaded schedule. There are apps, virtual assistants, and planners to name a few. But even with these devices, one can still procrastinate or put off something essential.

Time is what we make of it. And it is up to us to decide whether a task is important and not urgent, or urgent but not important. Understanding the difference between these two is crucial to getting the most important stuff out of the way before the day is done.

You’re not alone in feeling there aren’t enough hours in a day. So for those days when you need the extra push, here are some wise time quotes and sayings:
