February is always a magical time for love. Regardless of your levels of cynicism or rejection of mass commercialism, the love vibe is there whether you like it or not. Embrace it! Resist the temptation to join the St Valentine’s Day bah humbug brigade, just because you know a few facts and figures about how the tradition reeeeally started or how much money big business is making out of our yearnings. If you’re dreaming of uniting with your perfect divine complement, these twin flame love quotes will uplift and inspire you.
To all romantic souls with a passion for poetry, song and beautiful words. I’ve searched far and wide to find the loveliest and most spiritual twin flame quotes available, regardless of your reasons for seeking them out. It doesn’t matter whether you even find your twin flame in this lifetime. What matters most is that we do at some point encounter the purest vibration of true love in one form or another.
“I have spent many days stringing and unstringing my instrument, while the song I came to sing remains unsung.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
Poets like Tagore, Rumi and Hafiz are often misunderstood. They write about a love so deep and so true that it can almost inspire a sense of hopelessness. Then one day we connect with this love and realise that it’s a different feeling than the one we’d imagined. That the love described by these great poets with such relish is the divine love that runs through everything in the universe. And when we realise it was inside us all along, there’s nothing else we ever need to look for outside ourselves.
“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” ~ Rumi
The longing and desperation for a twin flame union can be quite destructive. It can leave us vulnerable to narcissists and other unscrupulous prospects. It can deceive us into staying in toxic relationships longer than we should.
When we exist outside of these physical bodies, outside of time and space, drifting through the infinite, we are all one and, therefore, we are all capable of learning, growing, and loving deeply.
There are several compassionate and loving souls with whom we could form deep and lasting bonds but whom we wouldn’t necessarily call a twin flame. When universal love is the aim, the need for this kind of elitism disappears and everyone becomes the twin flame.
“Where is the door to God? In the sound of a barking dog, in the ring of a hammer, in a drop of rain, in the face of everyone I see.” ~ Hafiz
Ultimately, the most important union we will ever achieve is union within - between heart, mind, body, spirit, soul and emotions. When this union occurs, we inevitably experience glimpses of the sacred passion we imagine we’d find in a twin-flame connection. When we experience this reconnection with the purest truest love there is, we begin to understand the twin flame connection for what it is – an opportunity to reawaken to the highest truth of our own divinity.
“We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole.” ~ Edgar Cayce.
When twin flames unite, they will almost always become committed to a joint mission of service. The moment of reawakening to divine union within the self is usually the moment that precedes the twin flame union. Once we have tasted that love - this unmatched experience of being wrapped up in the arms of The Divine, just when we begin to feel no need for anything or anyone else – this is the moment when a twin flame union becomes possible.
When we have given ourselves in service to the whole, we will suddenly discover that our perfect mirror walks beside us. This is when we are spiritually mature enough to give to each other but forget ourselves. To base all our interactions on the leadership of the divine heart within.
“I am in you and you in me. Mutual in divine love.”
~ William Blake
People who are lonely and tired of not finding that divine twin or soulmate will sometimes get annoyed by this kind of talk. Oh, here we go again, yet another teacher telling me to love myself. It’s almost as if everyone in the spiritual community believes that being alone is a badge of honour. As if ‘working on yourself’ is something to be constantly done in long, drawn-out periods of isolation, chipping away at ourselves like Michelangelo, or like someone endlessly finessing a great work of art or revising a fine, but mysteriously unfinishable, book.
Yes, it’s essential and even enjoyable to spend time getting to know ourselves, healing from heartbreak and integrating life lessons from previous connections. But we sometimes learn the most when we are in the process of relating to another.
“A soul mate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace.” ~ Thomas Moore.
There are times when we learn our greatest lessons about ourselves through a deep, meaningful and transformative union with another. And if the connection turns out to be less than ideal, we still inevitably become stronger, wiser and clearer about who we are and what we want.
Essentially, every moment we get to experience and share love is sacred. We should treat every single one of these moments like the precious treasure it is, while we hold it in our hands.
In recent years, within the spiritual community, a number of teachings have encouraged self-love to such a huge extent that they have almost led us away from each other.
Wanting to connect deeply with another human being is a natural and beautiful human desire and should be celebrated. Let’s remember as we move deeper into this year of love, that corrupted perceptions of love can easily lead us into war. And that beautiful divine union can lead us to God.
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
~ Paul McCartney
