Two years ago I met a girl at a dinner party. She told me about a book that changed her life called Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss. I read it right away. I guess I knew I was looking for something to change my life, too. Then I moved on to another book he wrote called Messages From The Masters. Last year I was asked to speak at a parlor meeting on the inclusion program that Little Bird attends for school and summer camp. The meeting was held in a woman's home. I was speaking and my eye caught a book on the shelf, another of Brian Weiss' called Only Love Is Real. At the conclusion of the evening, I asked if I could borrow it (this reminds me, I haven't returned it yet. Sorry, Amy!).
This is an amazing story of how people whose souls have been connected for many lifetimes are reconnected. The whole notion of past lives and that our souls can move on into the next lifetime is so comforting to me. It's almost a feeling of safety. Hard to explain and by now you probably think I'm nuts (I am).
Anyway, Only Love Is Real made me believe in soul mates. I believe we can have more than one and they're not all romantic. You know how you meet someone and right away you know you've got a connection? There's something to that. I know there is. Again, I'm not talking just romance. I'm talking any kind of connection. It's a beautiful thing.
