As we move ahead on our individual spiritual paths, we discover more and more connections with like minded souls. It is often as if they are part of our own "soul groups," and seems as though we are "from the same place." The internet has, of course, made such meetings easier and easier. We can communicate easily with one another, and such connection is especially valued when we exist (as we all do) in a society which is devoted to other aims and interests.
Here is a recent reflection from Teala Spitzbarth, who articulates this idea very well:
This is what I love seeing since my Kundalini awakening – this network of karmic energetic connections – like a network of light between us. How when one of us opens up you see the ripples, even where there may be no direct physical communication. This was very confusing for me with my healer Charlie at first, there was such a strong energetic connection, obvious potentiations between us, that I kept thinking we were supposed to be interacting on the physical level too. He kept telling me there was a “dialogue” between us, but it was a universal dialogue, not one he was “doing”. But for me it slowly becomes a little more conscious, like being aware of a soul dimension where etheric bodies are “talking”, across distance and time. The stuff of Yoga Vasistha ...
She said to me
"It never ceases to amaze me
how life seems to connect those
who are meant to be in touch -
like a giant jigsaw puzzle!"
And I replied
"It is like the instruments
of God's orchestra
finding one another
and tuning up!"
(from God's Orchestra Tuning Up
by Teala Spitzbarth)
( Note: Yoga Vasistha is an ancient Hindu text outlining the wisdom of the Sage Vasistha, who explains to the student the truth behind all existence--that the notion of separate identity is an illusion, for Brahma is all that exists. It is said that enlightenment occurs when one fully grasps this truth.)
