"A soul connection ...

 ... is a resonance between two people who respond to the essential beauty of each other’s individual natures, behind their facades, and who connect on this deeper level. This kind of mutual recognition provides the catalyst for a potent alchemy. It is a sacred alliance whose purpose is to help both partners discover and realize their deepest potentials. While a heart connection lets us appreciate those we love just as they are, a soul connection opens up a further dimension — seeing and loving them for who they could be, and for who we could become under their influence. This means recognizing that we both have an important part to play in helping each other become more fully who we are….A soul connection not only inspires us to expand, but also forces us to confront whatever stands in the way of that expansion." ~ From Love and Awakening by John Welwood

In the end what matters most is how well did you live; how deeply did you love, how much did you give, and how well did you learn to let go. ~ Robert K. C. Forrman, Ph.D.

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent. ~Dalai Lama
