One of my students is asking a really good question.
She has two friends whose soul correction is Forget Thyself… and she has a good relationship with me… and I have that same soul correction.
Sophie, after I read your last article I checked my last 2 friends’ soul corrections. My one friend who pushed me to a certain level had a soul correction Forget Thyself. My friend now, whom I met this year, also has a soul correction Forget Thyself. Interesting. Do we get attracted to certain soul corrections or maybe we get along better with some soul corrections that matches our soul correction?
The answer is not that simple.
We know that we have two selves. One self doesn’t change. We can call it the soul. Or the Self. Or whatever you want to call it, it is unchanging. It is the same in you, it is the same in me… it is, maybe, the Self of what’s possible for the human species…
Obviously your other self is far from that, it is changing, it is reactive, put together, selfish, and complaining, and haughty, and bossy… all the things you see everywhere.
You are BEING that other self.
Soul correction is the soul’s attempt to bring that public and not so high minded other self up to its own level.
According to my muscle test, a perfect soul correction never happened in history before. Some low mindedness always snuck in to spoil the deal… My favorite character, in this regard, is Moses, Moshe Avenu, who, at the end of his long and amazing life, could not resist begging the Creator to let him enter the Promised Land, even though their deal was: you won’t. Your job is to lead them there, and die.
If there were such a thing as gilgul ((reincarnation of the soul in Hebrew)) , reincarnation of the soul, I probably would be a reincarnation of Moses, given what my work is: leading a handful of you to the Promised Land, but being too old to enter myself with you. I find it very funny, lol. ((The Promised Land, in the Bible, which is written in code, is not a physical place, it is a spiritual term for a certain level of human evolution.))
OK, my personal stuff aside, back to how you choose partners, friends, spouses. Is there anything guiding it?
The Choice that is guided by your lower self
According to Landmark Education, your racket chooses your partner’s racket. Your racket, the sneaky little lower self complaining that “the world isn’t making it happy” part of you. ((You can get access to my racket video, just ask))
And that seems to be one choice… the choice that firmly keeps you stuck and anchored in your lower self.
Spouses… lovers… yeah… I’ll give you some examples a little later, but I want to distinguished the second choice:
The choice that is guided by the soul.
Growth happens only when you can see that you need to grow, because the opposite is ugly. Really… Ugly, unpleasant, distasteful, disgust are guiding feelings, pushing you higher on the scale of beingness, which we call soul
