ISLANDS IN THE STREAM
Soul Mates, Counterparts & Time Contemporaries
I have mentioned counterparts before in my article titled “Soul Mates” but we only touched on a small area of interest, and I had always intended to expand on what was said, so this is as good a time as any. I should mention that I do not re-read previous articles for fear of repeating something or maybe unconsciously influencing what I intend to say in the new article, so there is a risk here that some material may seem familiar to some of our readers. I would prefer to have each article that I write stand on its own and to be from a fresh perspective.
I was recently thinking about what is now an ancient past of mine in what seems to be another life entirely, but in remembering, a really good analogy popped into my mind, if I must say so myself, so I will try it out and see if it holds water. There was a time when creek fishing was one of my favorite things to do on those hot summer days in the midwest. Usually a friend and myself would try and find a small stream or shallow river that we could wade in. We would wear a minimum of clothing such as T-shirt, shorts and sneakers and carry a small lightweight spinning rod and fish with an artificial lure.
The idea was to wade either up or downstream and fish the quiet pools of water while walking over or around the small sandy banks or islands that formed in the middle of the streams. It occurs to me here that while wading, and from the viewpoint of the wader (me), these small islands seem to be independent, separate one from the other and from the bank of the stream. When viewed from above there is no doubt that they are separate entities, somewhat similar but always different in many respects. Some of the smaller islands are mostly all sand with only some scrub growth with a few water creatures crawling up on their banks while some of the larger islands are much more expansive, with much lush vegetation, trees, bushes and wading birds.
From a horizontal perspective of the wading fisherman, it would seem that they are indeed separate islands and different in their own unique ways. Of course, if one were to put on a swimming mask and view the stream from under water, it would be obvious that the islands were connected by the bottom of the river or stream and in a greater perspective, one could extrapolate that the bottom of the stream was connected to the river banks, to the continent and the seemingly separate continents were connected by the bottoms of the worlds oceans.
The obvious inference here is that what originally appears as islands to the casual observer, when observing from a different perspective, would see that everything is connected to everything else. This does in no way affect the fact that both of the islands here in discussion were independent in their own ways, developing their own unique size, environment, flora and fauna and distinct character, while still being connected in unseen ways to the other islands in the river or stream.
In one way, there are indeed “Islands in The Stream” and for practical purposes they are independent, with full freedom and ability to develop in their own ways. In that respect, in the whole physical world, there is no island that is identical to another, all being unique and standing alone, but still connected to all others in ways that might not be obvious to the casual observer.
What has this to do with the human race or other races or even other species? If one were to liken the stream or oceans in this analogy to the streams and oceans of consciousness and the islands to the personalities and identities of all living things that grow, fly, walk, craw or swim through those streams, one could see that there is a connection, even though that connection may be invisible or transparent to the casual observer.
In my article on “Soul Mates”, I discussed the projections of consciousness into the Earth system, the subsequent fracturing of the original “package of identity” as it enters the Earth system, scattering what could only be called related living personality fragments across the surface of the Earth in one same time period. This characteristic method of introduction of related, potential human personalities into different cultural, social, artistic, scientific and religious backgrounds from different countries, races and belief structures, insures the Soul/Entity of vast ranges of experience that it could not realize otherwise.
There is then a deep and abiding psychic relationship between these counterparts of consciousness even though they may be on the other side of the world. Because of these psychological ties, there is an underlying attraction between them that can bring them together across oceans if necessary, sometimes because of similar areas of interest, even though their main vocations or avocations may be diametrically opposed on the surface of things.
Therefore it would not be unusual for these counterpart personalities to end up in the same city, state, country or geographical area in groups, clubs, political parties, churches or other groupings together. Obviously, because of the same psychic lineage, close physical relationships formed between these brothers and sisters of consciousness can make for very close “Soulmate” life partners, or not. Because there is also the factor of complete individuality and freedom of choice, these underlying psychic ties do not insure compatibility on the physical level, but they do insure that if a relationship is struck, it has the potential of a long lasting companionship and devotion. I want to emphasize that it is not a bit unusual to find one or more of your Soul Counterparts among your circle of closest friends. They will be the special ones with which you form close bonds.
There are also Earth Challenges and everyone, and I do mean everyone, on the Earth in this particular century or time period has shown interest in and accepted before their physical birth. The Earth in any given era, is a platform for experience that is chosen by the Soul/Entity and by the potential new earth personalities before physical birth. There is not one individual alive at this time that was not aware of what he or she was getting into. You might say that you were primed for facing and learning from the particular kind of world events that you are seeing today.
They would not be the type of personalities that would have thrived or benefited from experience in the early cave man periods, nor would they have been very adept in the time of the Renaissance of the great artistic masters or the Industrial Revolution. You, and all of your “Time Contemporaries” all six billion or so, alive at this time have a world-wide psychic connection that underlies your common existence and challenges that you were consciously aware of before the first atom joined with others to form the first cell of your body that you utilize in this life.
When the challenges of this age are dealt with, problems, solved, challenges dispensed with and learning opportunities diminished, your mass earth experiment and all of those associated with it will be drawn down, diminished in number and minimized as a new era and new challenges are phased in, a new paradigm begun. The new coming earth cycle will deal with the expansion of consciousness as earth personalities begin to realize the potentials of understanding the realty of “probabilities”, “psychic powers” and the reality of their “eternal identity and brotherhood with all living creatures” now latent in every identity.
The message here is that from the purely physical viewpoint, you may seem to be an island in the stream, but you are connected with not only other living humans, but with all living things. If you are looking for the most evolved among you, look not to those who proclaim their holiness, their spirituality, their ability to recite passages from the holy books or so called ascended masters or gurus isolated in caves, but to those who show kindness to the other living things that share the earth with you and pass it on to the next cycle of personalities waiting in the wings.
Some of you are actual psychic counterparts, living portions of the same Soul/Entity, and in some cases, maybe even potential soul mates, others are psychological contemporaries of your era drawn together, sharing the challenges of the age, in that respect, you are solution related and you are all alive at this time for basically the same reasons.
You are all connected in more ways than you know, and will share each others company in other ages and face other challenges in other more advanced systems. No matter what the Earth age, you are in a learning system and what you consider as destruction is a deceptive illusion since destruction is impossible, it only appears that way to you, so give it a good go. And remember; the universe is deceptive too.
There are no real islands in the stream ! It may seem so, but that too is illusion.
