I received an email request from a reader of my blog asking for me to write an article on ” twin flames”.
Here is a snippet I found on a website discussing the twin flame concept.
“If I were to describe quickly what I think TF’s are, I would say to imagine Yin & Yang. Our twin and ourselves have our own separate identities – formed by life experiences, etc. – yet we really are one; like two sides to the same coin. During – rare? – incarnations together, oftentimes something will invariably keep you apart. I also believe – for most of us anyway – that our twins are watching over us from The Other Side.
Now, is any of this really true? That’s up to you to decide for yourself. Follow your instincts and inner voice, not anyone else’s.”
What’s interesting about this statement is in order for it to make sense the author has no other choice than to bundle several new age concepts together to make sense out of this. The twin flame concept is not new, it has other labels such as ‘soul mates’ which pertains to the belief that somewhere in the world (or spiritual realm) is a perfect person, a perfect partner, a perfect match of each and everyone of us. It cannot be proven of course and therefore the author asks you to ‘follow’ your instincts and ‘inner voice’ and avoid other peoples opinions (who disagree). This is a demonstration of selective thinking which is the process whereby one selects only favorable evidence for remembrance and focus, while ignoring unfavorable evidence for a belief. It is also the basis for many, if not most, occult and pseudoscientific beliefs. Following your instincts is not an accurate statement since you only respond to instinct. Just to clarify, instincts are learned behaviors that keep us alive. A child may put their hand in a flame once, maybe twice but after that they will never need to consciously think about doing it again. Coming close to a flame, they will surely retreat. Following your inner voice is no different from following instructions from a spiritual entity, which is exactly what it is. As usual, I ask you, who is this entity, where is it from, what does it want, how can you prove it is who it says it is?
Ok, so I’m digressing but you get my point, in order to try to explain this far fetched concept you need a number of new age based assumptions. The Yin and Yang symbol represent duality in the same way that magic powers can be used for both good and evil, in that both good and evil need to co-exist. What the author misunderstands is in order to find a perfect match using the yin and yang model is ultimately, one partner much be perfectly good and the other perfect evil in order to find that balance. So why the author gets on to reincarnation and Karma I am at the least surprised and here lies the greatest deception. I can rationalize this by asking you the think of a friend or someone you once knew who lived a life without a perfect partner. This alone would prove that the twin flame concept is fake, however, if you introduce the karmic aspect then you have a reason why his/her relationship was not perfect. Karma is nothing of course without its counterpart, reincarnation since without this addition the whole twin flame concept falls on its back, it become unreliable.
As i have stated on many occasions, the whole Karma concept is flawed. You only have to look at India who have been practicing this religion aspect for 1000’s years to see that nothing has improved for the vast majority. In fact it was used to enforce the cast system whereby many large sections of the population could be born into and remained in an impoverished state.So to conclude I have demonstrated that the reason why many people choose to believe in the twin flame or soul mate concept is not based on logic. It’s an emotional, self protective and perhaps almost desperate attempt to cushion the ego from feeling of unworthiness resulting from loneliness or rejection. in either sense I stress that it really doesn’t have to be this complicated. The Lord truly does have our best interests at heart, after all he is your father and he loves you very much. Since all else will fail why not turn to him knowing that at the very least you will receive eternal life with a loving father God forever.
