Story: Two Halves of One Soul
I thought this was a cute story, and worth sharing. I believe that we were all family and friends before we were born, and that our friendships and relationships continue with us as we meet again. That's why there is so much drama in this world; we already have a history with everyone we meet. It would be an epic drama to know both sides of our stories and where our lives have taken us on this side of the veil...
"Let me tell you another story.
'Once, a long long time ago, all people had four legs and two heads. And then the Gods threw down thunderbolts and split everyone into two. Each half then had two legs and one head. But, the separation left both sides with a desperate yearning to be reunited. Because they each shared the same soul. And ever since then, all people spend their lives searching for the other half of their soul.' "
