I AM HERE. Helen.
Well, I am engaged, as you know, among other things, in finding the
spirits' soulmates and bringing them together. Well, there is a
spirit here who believes that the soulmate theory is a false one,
and only intended to deceive those who are so very lonely and
unhappy, and that a man who has any stamina or any intellect will
not be fooled by such ideas as that soulmates exist and are awaiting
to become united.
Well, he was in that condition of loneliness and was very unhappy,
although he had very great intellectual acquirements and prided
himself on that fact. He thought that love and kindred things are
for women and foolish men, when he was suddenly visited by a most
beautiful spirit and asked if he had yet found his soulmate. He
replied that he had not and didn't want to, unless she should happen
to be as beautiful as the spirit who was talking to him, and that,
if such a thing could be, he would be most happy to find her.
Well, she asked him why he should suppose that his soulmate would be
so beautiful, when he was a spirit who was not so very attractive
looking, and all crooked and devoid of anything that would tend to
make him appreciate beauty or love in another.
He said that he did not consider himself so unattractive as she
said, because he was possessed of a knowledge of very many things
that the ordinary spirit did not have, and that, consequently, he
must be more attractive looking than she described him to be. And,
as to love, why, he could love, he thought, if he could find anyone
whom he considered worth being loved.
Then she told him that she was his soulmate, but that he could never
have her until he acquired more love and a larger understanding of
spiritual things; that her home was up in the Fifth Sphere, and that
he could not go there to live with her until he had gotten
sufficient Love in his soul to make him fitted to dwell there; and
that the longer he delayed trying to get this Love, the longer he
would be separated from her, and would, now that he knew she was his
soulmate, be most unhappy; that his intellectual acquirements would
not help him very much, and that the only thing that would enable
him to progress to where she lived was a development of Love in his
He said that he did not know much about love, but that if she would
show him the way to obtain it, he would devote his whole soul and
efforts to getting it. She then told him he must give up the pride
which he indulged in and which kept him encased in himself, and
learn to love everybody else in a brotherly way, and God with all
his heart and soul; that when he made that effort, he would find
that this love which she, as his soulmate, must have for him, would
come to him and he would soon realize that in all the spirit world
love is the greatest thing to possess; and that when a spirit has
that, he needs nothing else to make him happy.
He did not seem to comprehend what she said, but said he would try
to let his pride of intellect leave him, and make the effort to let
his soul receive this Love so that, thereafter, Love should be first
and knowledge and everything merely intellectual follow after.
So, you see, a soulmate may be found, but not acquired until love
commensurate with the love possessed by the higher soul is gotten by
the lower soul.
No merely intellectual acquirement is sufficient to attract and make
one, two soulmates. Only love in perfect harmony can bring about
this union. Let love rule and happiness is the lot of all spirits.
But, of course, this love is comparative, and so is the ensuing
