And you do it, yet again.How I imagine a relationship with a Soulmate, our One and Only, is that both people manage this nearly unimaginable balance between being simultaneously stable and grounding for the other person while at the same time focusing on the other person. Essentially managing to maintain a stable point in space while still orbiting about another star. It's not even like they're focusing on a space between them or orbiting about something between them. No, the focus is on the other and they are orbiting about the other and being still all at once. I'm not even sure how in the world it's possible, but I suppose when I know how to answer that, then I will know that I have met my Soulmate. roud:

What you described sounds a lot like a Lorenz attractor (even though the implications of a Lorenz attractor are quite different from the meaning behind your message).
But I see it in much of a very similar way. I think it goes beyond simple orbit, it transcends into a dimension where it is not contradictory to say they orbit one another, but mere truth. Where there is no dissonance about it, just a complete sense of consonance. It is, just as it is.
Ah, well, anyone who curtsies must surely have a penchant for great understanding. I'm glad I could also allow you to put a name to the picture that gave you such an interesting perception.:blushed: *curtsies* happy to be of service in the translation of thoughts to words... now just to find out how to translate feelings to words! :wink:
Actually, I think the image that sparked the entire thought-project was a representation of a Lorenz orbit (not that I was aware of that before my quick google search) so it's quite awesome that was what your mind jumped to. I think the comparison works at several levels as well since what would otherwise be chaos to any and everyone else who experienced what those two individuals experience with each each, but to them, there is harmony and a rhythm behind the madness. And a bit of madness there must be in order to step in time with another through this world where nothing else seems to be able find that same rhyme or reason.
Just thinking/writing about this has greatly increased my desire to experience this first hand.
I haven't always been optimistic about it either. Actually, I would say that I was a staunch believer in the idea that everyone else could maybe find their soulmate and be happy, but it would never happen to me. I wasn't special enough, nor was there reason enough for me to think that I ought to deserve any special treatment. (Which in hindsight was really contradictory since I thought everyone else could find a soulmate, but I couldn't so I was the one receiving that special treatment...) So I settled and made stupid choices and pretty much wasted five years that I could have spent searching for my soulmate on someone who did not deserve my time or love or commitment.I like to believe that I have and will find a soulmate. I think most of the time I do believe that I will find someone that could be such a person. But in my bad depressions, I'm not so optimistic.
