Jane Austen, the author of the book “Pride and Prejudice”, never married in real life, and I think I can guess why … what’s the point of doing this if love, in reality, is nothing like the love in the books you write. Even when “a rich young man asks her to be his wife,” she did not let herself convinced even if she had said yes initially. That love, which is above the pride of the mind and against any prejudices imposed by society, was very difficult to find in those time, almost impossible to hope for it today.
The testimonials of my friends who tell me about the passion that disappears in a few months (if you are lucky in few years) plus the stress with bank rates, extra pounds gained because of the emotional stress and finally all these mundane problems that lie in the face of fantasy and illusion can also become another reason to say, “There is no such thing! … What is this stupid thing you are talking about #soulmates? You’re crazy!”
But I never wanted to believe what the world has to say, the world is too often mistaken and I don’t have time to listen to it, plus it usually speaks from the comfortable sofa of capping, from where nothing new arises, the world has a classic recipe and a set of beliefs and is playing drums about it.
I believe in soul mates and I always believed in love stories, because I had one at home, day by day, in my parents. Still, I was not very strong on my belief when I met Crina. I was as a young little tree at the beginning of the way, I could have shaken my mind if the wind was blowing harder. I did not have well-rooted beliefs, unshakable… you know?
Crina inspires me simply by the fact that when she was born she drank more bottles of courage mixed with passion than the rest of us, and you can see that in everything she does. She opens the way for others but especially for herself. One day, after a car accident, she decided that her life was too precious to spend it among grey blocks, she packed and went out into the world, alone like a “crazy” person as some would say. She arrived in Bali where she decided to stay because everyone already knows: Bali is magic. She didn’t leave because she was upset, she did not go looking for something, she left because that’s how her heart whispered she had to do… and she listened.
Many envy her, some admire her, some say she is lucky because they only see the results of her efforts in the pictures where she smiles beautifully among the beautiful landscapes where she travels … but as she also says, it’s not about luck: “Spare me of the -lucky you’s, I wasn’t lucky, I was courageous enough to go grab my luck!”
Because in the end, this is what is all about, courage. When you have the courage to get out of the comfort zone, from what is “safe” but does not make you happy, then wonderful things can come up.
Long story short, Crina left to find herself and on the road, she met her Soul Partner. How Crina met Shiraz I wrote in the book among the other couples who inspired me, they are proof of the recognition of souls. That feeling of “Yes, This Soul is mine!” it is possible in real life not just in books and movies.
Crina and Shiraz are from the same movie, resemble in thoughts, feelings, dreams, passions and ideas… and all this happens because she gave up the „warm and comfortable” for the „extraordinary”. You can always find more than comfortable, in life, in love, in everything.
When Souls recognize each other you are no longer afraid, you do not want to prove anything anymore, you do not have to play games anymore, you do not need any more strategies, no more head explosions nor hard questions, insecurity and anxiety … you simply: Feel and know!
I love them from the very beginning since Crina was telling with secure voice, happy soul and glittering eyes that after having waited all her life she finally met her soul mate. I cried with excitement and happiness when I saw how beautiful Shiraz had organized a sweet event, after four months, to surprise her with the marriage request. He says he knew she was “The One” from the first moment he saw her. For me, they are the Magic couple.
We all want to know a magic recipe to make this happen but it does not exist. They met when they were ready. When they learned their lessons when they knew what they wanted, when their heart was quiet, when „they no longer hoped” how Crina confessed to me.
In time, the roots of my beliefs have stabilized, no matter what I could hear around me. I know for sure that #Soulmates exist and they recognize each other at the right time. We attract our beliefs, it’s up to us where we want to search for inspiration.
Yes, love stories still exist. Among the men who are “too lazy to make an effort,” among the unconscious women, among the fearful hearts, among lies and falsity, among the non-response to love letters and departures without explanations, among deceit, malingering and superficiality, if you are brave with an open heart, you can receive as a gift from the Universe a Magic person, just like you, with whom you can build stories and “abnormality.” You do not have to go to the other part of the world to live such things. You just have to believe.
You believe in #soulmates you receive one… you don’t believe in their existence, very well you don’t receive.
With Love, Ana.
