Will I find my soulmate?

Today on Ask Cahlen I will be answering the question, “Will I find my soulmate?”

A soulmate is generally thought of as someone we incarnated into this life with and with whom we are destined to enter into a life-long intimate relationship. While I suspect soulmates exist, I think it is better to think of these things in terms of an ideal partner so as not to invoke thoughts of destiny which tend to corrupt our decision making.

If you are asking yourself these sorts of questions, I recommend asking yourself why you want to find your ideal partner. If your desire comes out of a feeling of lack or incompleteness it’s likely the person you attract is not going to be right for you, or the relationship will be fraught with difficulty and inappropriate sacrifice.

Now I don’t think all universes are necessary like this but it definitely seems to be that our universe is.

Today on Ask Cahlen I’m answering the question, “Why did you stop living in a yurt?”

So for those of you don’t know, I spent a decent amount of time, about a year and a half maybe two years, living in a structure called a yurt. The first one was actually a Mongolian Ger which is the same thing as a Yurt just from Mongolia, and it has a kind of a unique structure to it, and then the second one I had was one that actually owned myself which was from a company called Camping Yurts (campingyurts.com).
