Spiritual Reasons Why We Encounter Certain People...
The universe works in ways that are unknown to man. Everything that happens around us from the people in our lives to what occurs is due to a reason. Someone had rightly said, ‘We don t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our paths for a reason’.
Now the question is do you believe? Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? Do you believe that people come into your life because it is destiny?
If you ask me, then let me tell you that personally, I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. The question is whether I know the reason or not.
I read it a while back that perhaps sometimes people simply come into your life and the minute they do, you know right away that they were always meant to be in your Life and this happens when you least expect it.
5 Cosmic Reasons Why We Meet Certain People.
Some people only enter your life for a short while. It may seem strange but this happens only to serve some sort of purpose or to simply teach you a lesson. In certain cases, it has been even seen that some people may enter your life as acquaintances but they end up staying for a long time.
Have you ever met someone’s who is the same sole reason why you learned something new or they helped you to figure out who you are and who you want to become in life?
In simple terms, every person you meet has a purpose to serve in your life, be it be to teach you something or to simply add value to your life. We learn from the people around us and each one of them teaches us something new.
Come to think of it, whether the people who enter your life enter it for an hour, a day or 10 years, everyone has a reason. It’s not about the hours they spend with you but the value they add to your lives and your thought process.
It all depends on the amount of time that you need to learn the lesson that they have to teach you. Your soul needs to learn things and people teach them that invariably. Come to think of it, there are about over a billion people in this world, and yet a handful of them only matter to us, this is not by an accident. Everything is predestined.
Have you ever wondered why some people rub you the wrong way? Why certain people send you negative energy or they simply put you off? Their purpose in life is to perhaps teach you the lesson of patience or maybe you have some unfinished business with them from the past.
Some people say that we Only Fall In Love With 3 People In Our Lifetime—Each One For A Specific Reason
Love is just a word, until someone comes along and gives it meaning”- Unknown
It’s been said that there are only 3 people in our lives that we fall in love with, and each of them for a given reason.
The first one we usually meet in our teenager years, perhaps high school. It is an innocent love, one that sounds like the love stories we read in fairy tales.
This is the love that complies to the expectations of society, and perhaps our families. We enter into it believing that it’ll be our first and only love. Even when, at times it doesn’t seem exactly right, we find ourselves having to censure personal truths to make it work, and this we insist on doing because we believe that compromising our characters is a part of what love is supposed to be.
Because during this type of love, what others think of us is more important of how we actually feel.
This one is a love that only looks right.
The second one is the one that’s supposed to be the tough love: the one that will teach us lessons about who we are and what we’re searching for in love. This is the love that hurts, full of lies, pain and manipulations.
We think we’re making a smarter choice than our first love, but choice, although it might not be the right person, is a necessary evil if we are to discover what we want from love. This second love can become a vicious circle, one that we might oftentimes repeat because we firmly believe that the ending will be somehow different than before. And, nonetheless, every time is worse than the previous.
It can even get nasty, unhealthy and frustrating. Oftentimes there can be physical, certainly emotional abuse, and always an enormous amount of drama. Just like a soap opera, this drama is exactly what keeps us addicted to the storyline. It’s like a junkie trying to get a fix: it’s an emotional rollercoaster of extreme highs and devastating lost. We stick through the pain in anticipation of the high.
During this kind of love, trying to make things work becomes more important than reconsidering whether they actually should.
This is the love that we wish was right. I personally have experienced this kind of toxic so clled love and it is Soul destroying.
The third love is the one that catches us off-guard. It’s the one we don’t see coming, because it looks all wrong and seems to be opposed to all our ideals of what love is supposed to be. This love comes by so easily, that at times it seems unreal. It’s the kind of connection that can’t be explained, and it sends us tumbling head over heels because, unlike the others, we never plan this one.
In this love when we come across the right person, it just clicks- there aren’t any expectations of what is supposed to happen or how the other person is supposed to act, nor is there pressure to be someone we’re not.
The person accepts us for who we are, and it shakes us to our core.
It’s probably not what we thought our love would look like, and it’s very possibly against all the rules we set up to protect ourselves. But it still manages to bring down our preconceived notions, and to show us that real love doesn’t have to coincide with the concept in our head in order for it to be true.
This is the love that keeps knocking on our door no matter how long it takes for us to answer.
It’s the love that makes us feel like the best version of ourselves.
Maybe not all of us are lucky enough to recognize, or even meet all his loves in a lifetime. This is perhaps because we’re not yet ready for them. Maybe we need to learn everything that love isn’t, so that we can learn what it is.
Some of us need perhaps a couple of years to learn each lesson, others maybe a lifetime. Sometimes it’s not a question of whether we’re ready for love, but whether love is ready for us.
And there are also those of us, who are so lucky to come across love No. 3 first, and find it passionately lasts a lifetime. Those loved-up pictures of 90-year old grandparents acting as if they were teenagers, make us wonder whether we really know how to love at all.
But, anyone who manages to find their third and true love is just as lucky, being smarter for having gone through those experiences of pain and heartbreak.
What it all really comes down to, is whether we focus ourselves on how we love, or how much we love. We can choose to remain with our first love, the one that looks good on the outside and pleases others. We can choose to remain with our second love, under the pretence that, if we don’t have to fight for it, it’s not worth having. Or ultimately, we can choose to wait for our third and true love.
The one that makes you feel like home with no obvious reason, the one that’s not turbulent like a storm, but rather like the quiet that comes after it.
And maybe there’s something special about our first love, and something heartbreakingly unique about our second…but there’s also just something pretty amazing about our third.
The one we never see coming.
The one that actually lasts.
The one that shows us why it never worked out before.
And it’s that possibility that makes trying again always worthwhile, because the truth is you never know when you’ll stumble into love.
With love and service xx
