The following is reprinted from one of the Krishnamurti lectures, February 6, 1969, which meaningfully impinges upon our discussion of evolved Twin-Soul love.
After reviewing the transcript, please see my commentary below featuring the "Dazzling Darkness."
So, we have now come to the point to find out what is meditation. And people have offered, again from the East - I don't know why you pay so much attention to the East in these matters, they have a great many tricks there; so have you here - and these people offer methods, systems of meditation, including the Zen - systems, methods. Now when you examine a method, what is implied in it, a system? Somebody says, 'Do these things, practise them day after day, for twelve, fifteen, twenty, forty years and you will ultimately come to the reality'. That is, practise the method, whatever the method is, and in practising the method what happens? Whatever you do in routine, every day, at a certain hour, cross-legged, or in bed, or walking, whatever you do, if you repeat it day after day, your mind becomes mechanical - obviously. And so when you see that, the truth of it, not, 'Oh, there is a new method to meditate' - when you see the implication of all methods, which is mechanical, traditional, repetitive, and in that conflict, suppression, control - all these are implied in a method. And obviously a mind made dull by a method cannot possibly be free and intelligent to observe.
And also it is said, again from the East, which is modified in the West, that by repeating certain Sanskrit words told by the guru to you specially at a certain price (Laughter) - don't laugh, it's not worth laughing, we are not saying this cynically, we are merely stating facts - the repetition of those words gives you an extraordinary inward experience. You know, if you repeat the word 'Coca-Cola' a hundred times, in a posture, thinking about it, you will obviously have some extraordinary feelings (Laughter). No, no sirs, don't, don't. You see they have brought this, which they call Mantra Yoga, from India. And also you have it in the Catholic world - Ave Maria repeated a hundred times, and they do, on the rosaries - which obviously for the time being quietens the mind. A dull, heavy, fearful mind, a stupid mind can be made very quiet by repetition of words, and it does have strange experiences, but those experiences are utterly meaningless because a dull mind, a shallow mind, a mind that is frightened, ambitious, greedy for truth or for the wealth of this world, such a mind however much it may repeat some so-called sacred word, is meaningless.
So if you have done all this, that is, understood yourself deeply, learnt about yourself completely through choiceless awareness, and have laid the foundation of righteousness which is order, and therefore free and not accepting any authority whatsoever - so-called spiritual authority, obviously one must accept certain laws of society - then you can find out what is meditation. Because in meditation there is great beauty, it's an extraordinary thing if you know what meditation is - not how to meditate. The 'how' implies the method, therefore never ask how, and there are people too willing to offer a method.
But meditation is the awareness of this fear, of the implications and the structure and the nature of pleasure, the understanding of oneself and therefore laying the foundation of order, which is virtue, in which there is that quality of discipline which is not suppression, or control, or imitation. Such a mind then is in a state of meditation; which is, to meditate implies to see very clearly, and it is not possible to see clearly, or be totally involved in that which is seen, when there is space between the observer and the thing observed.
That is, when you see a flower, the sunset, the beauty of a face, or the lovely sky of an evening, the bird on the wing, when you see it, there is space, not only physically but psychologically between you and that, between you and the flower, between you and the cloud which is full of light and glory, there is that space - psychologically. When there is that space there is not only conflict but also that space is made by thought, which is the observer.
You know, have you ever looked at a flower without space? Have you ever observed something very beautiful without that space between the observer and the thing observed, between you and the flower? We look at the flower with the screen of words, with the screen of thought, of like or dislike, wishing that flower was in your particular house, or this or that, saying, 'What a beautiful thing that is'. So in that observation, when you look, there is the division created by the word, by your feeling of like or of pleasure. And so this division between you and the flower inwardly, in that division, there is no perception, acute perception, but when there is no space then you see the flower as you have never seen before.
Editor’s note: K’s use of the phrase here, “never seen before,” strikes me as fortuitous. The Wedding Song employs the very same words to describe authentic romantic love – and it’s accessed in the very same way as per K’s instruction. It is only when there is “no space”, psychologically speaking, between subject and object, or lover and beloved, that romantics begin to authentically interact. What does all this mean? I’ve written several articles to explain, see them listed at the bottom of this page.
That is, when there is no thought, when there is no botanical information about that flower, when there is no like or dislike but only complete attention, then you will see that the space disappears, therefore you are in complete relationship with that flower, with that bird on the wing, with that cloud, with the face of your wife or your husband, or the neighbour.
And when there is such quality of mind in which the space between the observer and the thing observed disappears, and therefore the thing is seen very clearly, most passionately and intensely, then there is that quality of love, and with that love there is beauty. You know when you love something greatly, not through the eyes of pleasure or pain, when you actually love, space disappears, both physically and psychologically. There is no me and you. And when you come so far in this meditation, then you will find that quality of silence which is not the result of a mind which is thought seeking silence.
Editor's note: In some of my articles on romantic love, I've stated that two lovers lying together, touching foreheads, in silence, is one of the most intimate, even erotic, experiences. K explains why this is so. In this silence of oneness, of mind melding with mind, symbolized by touching foreheads, there exists a higher order of love with a concomitant perception of the beauty of transcendent union. This occurs when there is "no you and no me."
You know, there are two different things - aren't there? Thought can make itself quiet - I don't know if you have ever tried it, but for most of us to silence thought, for thought to become quiet is unknown, therefore we struggle against it, because we see very well that unless thought is quiet there is no peace in the world, or peace inwardly, there is no bliss.
So we try in various ways, through drugs, through tranquillisers, through repetition of words, through a thousand ways, to quieten the mind, but thought that makes the mind quiet, silent, such silence is entirely different, it is not comparable with the silence which freedom brings, freedom from all the things that we have talked about. It is only then, in that silence, which is of quite a different quality than the silence brought about by thought, it's only in that silence there is quite a different dimension, quite a different state, which you have to find out for yourself, nobody can open the door for you, nobody and no word, no description can measure that which is immeasurable.
And so unless one actually takes this long journey, which is not long at all, which is immediate, unless you do it, life has very little meaning. And when you do it you find out for yourself what is sacred.
the Dazzling Darkness
Milky Way over the volcano at Mauna Kea, Hawaii
Kairissi. Krishnamurti employs phrases admiting to no ordinary meaning for the average person.
Elenchus. To anyone who’s not experienced what he’s talking about.
K. What does it mean to “look at a flower without space”?
E. Or to see the flower only with “acute perception” in which there is “no thought,” no “botanical information.”
K. He speaks like a Gnostic, but as the historian Gibbon described, with “many sublime but obscure tenets.”
E. And yet, to those who’ve lived what K is describing, it’s as clear as you and I to each other.
K. But only clear in the Dazzling Darkness. While these concepts cannot be fully apprehended until one has personally entered them, we do have an example that will begin to make plain.
E. Actually, a great many examples, but they’re all of similar origin.
K. Our readers will thank us to stop speaking in riddles now and get to something that they can touch and handle.
E. We take our teaching example from something that one of our friends said.
K. It was an item from ordinary, mundane living. But this is good as everyone will relate to it.
E. A friend sent us an email. As it was late at night, her little dog required a “bedtime potty break,” she said, and so she took the small creature just outside her front door. She reported:
“It was very cold and snowing, big airy flakes floating gently down in the stillness. All the ground was a blanket of glittering crystals, the sky beyond the deepest black... so incredibly beautiful. It was utterly silent... my breath, the only scar. For a brief moment, I was not in my body. I just was one with it.”
wordless silence, stark perception
K. In that “brief moment,” there was neither “botanical information,” as Krishnamurti used the phrase, nor technical data of any kind – no weather report, no awareness of the hour, nothing about astronomical distance to stars, no physics, no chemistry – only wordless stillness and silence, no space between observer and observed, only stark perception of oneness with the universe and all creation.
E. In that private world of oneness, again, there was no “space,” no distance between perceiver and perceived, no intervening thought to mar and jar, no gap, no “me and you,” just cosmic unity and singularity.
K. We should mention that we’d been discussing with her some of the principles which Krishnamurti teaches. She was open to learning, but it all seemed rather vague and foreign to her. However, that night on the front porch, she herself realized, if only for a moment, this is what we’d been talking about, this sense of oneness without distance or space.
E. We told her that this was a “gift,” a teaching aid to her, and that now she had an experience to relate to.
K. Earlier we said that we had many examples to share with our readers. And, indeed, what our friend experienced is common – this portal to the mystical. It happens at times when we view a gorgeous sunset, a newborn baby, a blossoming rose.
E. We all know of this, but most allow the moment of stillness to pass and immediately resume the “chattering in the head.”
K. All these "punctuations of beauty" are portals – but we have to be willing to choose to walk through the portal, into a new world where the ego cannot follow us.
E. We said to our friend that her mystical experience of oneness and stillness is where we meet and see the truth, and even snatches of ultimate reality.
K. Elenchus, in some of our older writings and conversations, we used to call this “place”, where truth is revealed, the “Dazzling Darkness.”
E. It’s a good term. We should bring it back to our popular usage. The Dazzling Darkness can be accessed any time the mind is still, when “the chattering” shuts down, and not just when we peer into the blackness of the awesome midnight sky.
K. It’s a Darkness, fundamentally, not of the external universe at large but of the inner cosmos, the universe of soul riches within, at the core of being.
E. This present writing is part of the Omega series, and we should point out that one cannot, and will never, perceive the identity of one’s Twin Soul unless you find her within the Dazzling Darkness.
K. And "touching foreheads" symbolizes, in an intuitive way, the cosmic oneness of lovers.
E. Yes, exactly. We touch foreheads and meld minds only in the Dazzling Darkness.
K. Unless we learn how to still the mind, to cut off the “chattering in the head,” we will not activate our higher-level sensibilities, the “internal radar,” which allows one to recognize the Sacred Beloved, an embodiment of the "soul pledges" buried within, when he comes into one’s presence.
E. I think we’ve given everyone enough to think about for now, but, in closing, I’d like to reference Krishnamurti’s lecture of February 14, 1969. He used some hard to understand terms which, I think, will make more sense now. He spoke of the “austerity,” the starkness, of the mind free of the ego, and that in this condition of stillness, of pureness and unadornment, we have the opportunity to "grasp the total field of life." We said it’s like Euclid’s geometry, a “beauty bare” revealing the architectonic substructure of the nature of things.
K. But our friend on the midnight porch helps us understand what this “austerity” really means.
once again, one more time, just like that, again
Do That To Me One More Time
|oh, kiss me like you just did, do that to me once again, oh, tell it to me one more time, say those words again like you just did, tell it to me once again
Editor’s note: In a featurette on the “holodeck” page, Kairissi and Elenchus discussed the Kama Sutra principle of each lover receiving, each from the other, exactly what she or he desires during sexual encounter. Captain and Tennille’s “Do That To Me One More Time” highlights this made-to-order, personally defined, version of sex. See more in that writing. At its close, Elenchus shared that he’d recently seen something new concerning an element of romantic dynamic superseding the Kama Sutra tenet. He said it’s embodied in “touching foreheads.”
Elenchus. I believe that I’ve been given greater clarity on what lovers really crave. It’s one of those “sparks” of private tutoring, an instant “knowing” but very difficult to share with others.
Kairissi. All “sparks” are sent exclusively to one person, marked “for your eyes only,” but try to explain, Elenchus.
E. In the “Captain and Tennille” writing, we spoke of the Kama Sutra principle of unique definitions of sexual happiness.
K. Each lover communicating exactly what he or she wants.
E. And the Kama Sutra suggests that, if implemented, romance might last “a hundred years.” But this is probably an exaggeration.
K. Even though each romantic mate might receive made-to-order sex.
E. It’s not enough. Anything physical is never enough. There’s a spiritual, non-physical part of us that requires more, more than physical bodies in nexus.
K. The physical bodies in nexus is just an outward symbol of an inner craving for deeper oneness.
E. Yes. And I’ve seen something new. Well, it won’t sound so new when I say it, but I actually “saw” what’s needed, and this was new, at least for me.
K. Mere words cannot take us to where we want to go. We can talk about wonders but unless we actually “travel” to this marvel, it remains theory. So, tell me Elenchus, what did you “see”?
E. I saw that there’s a reason why we’ve said touching foreheads can feel like the most erotic of sexual experiences.
K. Elenchus, I must apologize to interrupt, but I’m getting a “spark” of my own just now. As we’ve said, physical sex, bodies in union, represents the more lofty “One Person” status, but I’m seeing that “touching foreheads” is also a representation of this spiritual oneness, and, I will venture, an even higher grade. I think this is so because “touching foreheads” is more than a union of bodies but a “union of spirits.”
E. Very good, Kriss, and maybe you’re seeing more clearly than I.
K. Even kissing is a desire to represent oneness.
K. But continue, Ellus.
E. It’s just that, in my flash vision, I saw why, in the beginning, Twins might not like each other...
E. ... and yet, they are drawn to each other at a deeper level. Like the Sun’s brilliance cloaking the many other stars, the internal “consonance” of soul-energies singing in harmony blocks out what egos may or may not like.
K. And “touching foreheads” is a symbol of this internal resonance. And laughing together, too, maybe especially, well expresses this deeper joy of oneness - and you know what, I just love this photo so much, it's just what I like so much.
E. I know... it's so you, who you are. And if I had to give one reason why I love you, it's because of this aspect of you, right here - perky and playful.
K. And it's strange, Elenchus, although everyone knows this - you can experience the garden-variety sex, often a mechanical ritual, and never come within a North Dakota country mile of this kind of joyful happiness.
E. (sighing) And let me say, as well, to state the obvious, you can’t just put any two random people together, have them touch foreheads, and expect to experience this.
K. The internal resonance comes first. The touching of foreheads, authentically in play, is simply an outward expression of a deep inner affinity.
E. I said that what I saw had to do with why Twins might not like each other at first. But this is not the main part of my "vision." It was much more. What I saw was, lovers want to touch foreheads because, what they really want, or want to display or represent, is that deeper connection.
K. That's the real gold and the truest eroticism.
E. It is, but I'm not making myself clear. It's really hard to convey... I had this vision of us lying down together, embracing, touching foreheads, and... what I felt was... what we really wanted was to magnify, to focus on, or to make real, our inner sense of soul harmony... the mutual "consonance" of deeper energies... this was very clear to me, and we wanted to completely immerse ourselves in that sweet confluence of sacred essence, each for the other.
E. Yes, I know, this doesn't really tell you much... I told you I couldn't explain.
K. (softly) It's ok, Elenchus... remember, too, that I'm the other part of this equation, and I, too, have experienced these things with you.
E. Kriss... what do you think, what does all this mean?
K. (softly) I think it means that our most cherished and sought-for experience of sexual union is not primarily rooted in the body, but... in those mutually-answering soul energies... We have experienced this... and it's something counter-intuitive to general views of sex. But we have seen the promised land on this and know there's far more coming than just bodies in contact - even though we wouldn't want to give that up.
E. (sighing) Yes... and, you know... you're better at explaining these things than I am.
K. (softly) (smiling) There's a reason why I was first in coming to you.
K. And Elenchus, this is why you said, when you first “met” me, that those were “the most erotic moments” of your life. You had suddenly, inadvertently, activated our eternal soul connection, and the sense of oneness flew off the charts for you and was expressed as intense sexual intimacy.
everything becomes clearer in the Dazzling Darkness
Why do I call it “dazzling”?
It’s a choice of words conveying more fact than poetry.
We’re all familiar with the image of the light bulb symbolizing the coming of a new idea.
But, this isn’t exactly what I want to say.
A light bulb shines steadily, and it’s not dazzling, as such.
All analogies quickly break down if we press the similarity too hard, and so let me start again.
In his lectures, Krishnamurti often speaks of stilling the mind, of “simply noticing” the antics of the false self, of shutting down the egoic “chattering in the head.” When we learn how to do this, and when we do so over some period of time, eventually we enter a phase of mental development – for brief moments – characterized by a fleeting glimpse, nanosecond snatches, of another higher order of reality.
You’ll suddenly see something, understand something, perceive the nature of something. And when you do it will be like – not a glowing bulb but – the faintest spark of light in the darkness of the undeveloped mind; like an effervescence, or a momentary shimmering, or maybe like radioactive scintillation.
How often does this happen? Early on, when one is just learning how to “simply notice,” it’s a somewhat rare occurrence. But later, when, more and more, you enter the ego-less dimension, it will happen pretty much every day. And sometimes, late at night, when the mind is particularly open to “channeling” from “higher sources,” it can almost be like popcorn: pop, pop, pop come the new insights; sometimes, they come with such insistence that the “teaching lesson” is almost more than one can process, and you’ll be tempted to take a rest and put out your "do not disturb" sign; tell them to keep to your office hours. This is quantum creativity at the ferocious level.
All this is the progressive world we were meant to live in. It’s how God teaches us – directly, a private tutoring. It will always be this way. On the other side, there are no gurus, no one to give you absolute truth. You must "teach yourself." There will be respected advisors, for sure, but unless one learns how to verify the information via the process just described, we’ll be flailing in the dark – but not the Dazzling kind.
What are these “sparks in the mind”?
I don’t know, but I doubt if this “light” is part of the physical universe. I doubt if it would register on a photometer. It’s not from the sun, not electricity, and it’s not neurons firing. It’s not like that. Instead, my sense is, these flash-luminosities are not of the mortal body but, rather, of the inner astral body, very momentarily, shining through. I think it’s spiritual light, a higher grade of light, which we normally, right now, do not have access to.
Editor's note: See the other-side channeled testimony of Sir John Pensley regarding the unveiling of previously-unseen reality coming to us as "tiny flashes" of light. I submit that Twin Souls, within their own domain of discovery of "what's real", might also experience this smallest incremental luminescent display in the form of what Elenchus calls "sparkles in the head." This should not be counted as a strange thing for Twins, because, even as children, they might experience this as they become privy to the unfolding of "ultimate reality."
When we enter the state, or the condition, of the Dazzling Darkness, we come face to face with snippets of “the truth.” Momentarily, we see a very small something. And these tiny flares of insight accumulate. Over time, like building a 1000-piece puzzle, a new view of reality will come into focus. We're literally changed from the inside out. Over time, over the coming years, lots of people will tell you, "you're so different now, how did you get ahead of me?" Well, it happened overnight - the "long dark night of the soul." And in that Dazzling Darkness, you will never be the same again, as you begin to see and perceive things that escape everyone -- anyone still led by the ego – whether in this world or the next.
In the Kairissi-and-Elenchus dialogues, he tried to tell her something, but I suspect she didn’t understand and may have thought it to be unlikely. However, he attempted to explain that, when they were children, long before he had any real feelings for her, in her presence he would sometimes vaguely become aware of these “sparkles in the head.” He was still too much that “insensate worm” to consciously notice what was happening to him, and it would be only decades later, as a mature man, looking back on what had happened to him when she was around, that he put it all together. Nevertheless, even as a young child, in the company of the one whom he would someday call “Twin Soul,” he experienced the “sparkles in the head.” But only with her, and no one else.
There are many different kinds of “portals” to higher intelligence and spiritual evolvement, but we will discover that one’s Twin opens the long-barred doors of the soul, ready or not, as no other pedagogue. She's the only one possessing the keys to unlock the Dazzling Darkness.
Elenchus. People ask the author, Why don’t you have your books and articles in paper-print? What many don’t understand is that, if one’s writings represent an “open channel” to a higher source, they're never really finished.
Kairissi. There’s always some new insight to add or modify. And so, what do you do with that fresh addendum if you’re stuck with paper-print?
E. You and I live this way; every day we get new “messages,” late at night, too, and even in dreams.
K. I keep saying I’m on duty only during business hours, but they don’t listen. Anyway, are you seeing something new about the Dazzling Darkness, Elenchus? – I can tell that you are.
E. Well, recently two new articles were added to the “quantum” page, on “determinism” and “redefining truth.” The general subject had to do with Newton’s “clockwork” physics being superseded by quantum theory. And as I thought about it, the new quantum science sounded like the Dazzling Darkness.
K. You’ll need to explain this.
E. With the old physics, science or truth or reality is “out there.” If an experiment was performed, one could stand behind a plate glass barrier and be detached from the proceedings.
K. There's distance between the observer and observed. The experiment is “over there,” and I’m “over here” behind the glass, totally separate.
E. Everyone in science was pleased with this arrangement for hundreds of years. But it all went awry when it was discovered that a particle is changed simply by observing it. In fact, the particle is changed in specific ways, depending on what one is looking for.
K. Welcome to the quantum world.
E. Suddenly, science or truth or reality was no longer just “out there” but also “right here” in the mind of the observer. One’s own consciousness affected the outcome. And, as more and more was learned about the quantum world, it became apparent that, at a deeper level, everything is connected.
K. Darling, what aspect of this are you seeing as related to Twin love?
E. It struck me that, when John or Mary search for a mate, they believe they’ll find what they’re looking for “out there.”
K. But, of course, many will say, the mate you’re looking for is “out there.”
E. But my contention is, are you sure about that? When John or Mary search for a mate, it’s all about externals. They’re “resume shopping.” It's a hiring process. They do the “e-harmony compatibility” quiz. They’re looking for a certain physical build, particular facial features, a desired age and level of health. They value, shall we say, the “mathematics of beauty,” idealized measurements.
K. (small smile) I’m reminded of the author’s stories about how he was an FFA cattle judge during high school.
E. (small smile) I’m glad you said that and not me.
K. (deadpan) “Fancy heifers up a dime today. And that's the noon-time livestock report, brought to you by GTA, the co-op way, your partner in agriculture."
E. (laughing) I can tell where you grew up.
K. I'm not sure that I finished.
E. (small smile) Well, we better get back on track here. So, with all this externalism, we can see that John and Mary take part in an obsolete program of Newtonianism, within the context of mate selection.
K. Explain this to everyone.
E. We find our true eternal mate only in the Dazzling Darkness. This is our own term for the perceptions of one’s sacred soul. In that land of ultimate clarity, there is no apprehension of her physical beauty, no cognizance of any external feature of body or even of personality. Instead – just as the observer, in a sense, becomes part of the quantum object – his inner being merges with hers, at the level of the soul, the deepest level of consciousness. In these moments, there's no "distance" between them caused by chattering thought, only a mystical stillness. And in that sparkling-shimmering-glistening “Darkness” of the soul’s sanctity, there's a resonance of "you are just like me," even, "you are me" and "I become you"; identities are unveiled, purposes are understood, destinies become clear.
Restatement: The concept of psychological “distance” is extremely important but difficult to understand for those who’ve not experienced it. Whenever there is “subject and object,” including “lover and beloved,” then “distance” remains.
This is so even for those intensely absorbed in the intimacy of love. What does “distance” mean for those compellingly associated? It means that, in this “distance”, the ego has room to inject disturbing memories laden with doubt, hurt feelings, accusations of past untrustworthiness, and the like. One might be plagued with these dismaying images of one’s partner even in the midst of intense love.
These might be images of actual misdeeds of the past, or imagined ones, or the images might be of potential loss in the future, a fear of betrayal or "you have failed to make me happy". As long as there is “distance” then the ego will use this psychological sense of separation to create negativity.
And this is why love is not the highest virtue, but must surrender the crown to ultimate oneness, a state of “no you and no me,” wherein “distance” does not exist. In this most sublime state, lover and beloved "become each other."
K. Thank you, Elenchus. And, if I may add a word to ward off confusion, I know you do not mean to say that there is no concern for physical allurement. I know this because you often tell me, after so long a time, that you are still astonished to view me as “most beautiful girl in the world.”
E. Absolutely. Andrew Jackson Davis talked about this. Each mate becomes the ideal image of the other. But this happens naturally and automatically – we don’t have to go searching for it “out there” – and this sense of ideal perfection happens after the true mate is mystically recognized or discovered, meaning, there is no "hiring process" during which one might be drawn by another's external beauty or charm.
K. In other words, it is your soul that falls in love with the true mate, even if the outer personality, in the beginning, does not! We know that what we say here sounds like nonsense to those who’ve not experienced this.
E. It’s just like quantum mechanics being called “weird science” – but only by the Newtonian die-hards.
Editor's last word:
While all aspects of truth are related, the following articles are most germane to the subjects of the Dazzling Darkness, the Mystical Experience, and Existential Beauty:
Kairissi and Elenchus discuss how lovers' perceptions of existential beauty lead them to ultimate intimacy and oneness
Touching foreheads, entering a condition of "no you and no me," a quality of sacred silence, the Dazzling Darkness, with no space or separation, an Omega-Point intimacy
The Mystical Experience: 'silence your ego and your power will rise'
Part I, Existential Beauty: Noting a sunrise as messenger of a new day is not the same as discerning the dawn as dreamily enchanting. The sublime awareness allowing for such is untainted by utilitarian concern.
Part II, Existential Beauty: Consonance with the whole: “What is good is in consonance with creation as a whole and therefore also with the world of men. Whenever we see the Good and the True in perfect accord, the Beautiful stands revealed.”
We feel uplifted at the singing note of a bird, a blossoming rose, and with a woman’s grace and loveliness. But can any of these bring about a transformation of heart and mind? Is her mystical allure a basis for authentic love and marriage?
Over the years on WG, we have referred to Twin Soul love as founded upon “soul energies.” However, as Tesla asserted, to know the universe, one must think in terms of “energy, frequency, and vibration.” As such we may be able to further clarify Twins’ affinity as oscillating waves of Consciousness.
