Soul Mates: Honoring the Mysteries of Love and Relationship | [Thomas Moore]

Soul Mates: Honoring the Mysteries of Love and Relationship

The need to love and connect with others creates intimacy, but it also creates many difficulties, even failure. But Thomas Moore emphasizes that if you are willing to live through these difficulties, your life is enriched and the soul thrives. "Soul-intimacy" can be cultivated in many ways, even in letter-writing and conversations. It can be deepened through sexuality and jealousy, relationships that have gone stale, and even the pain of endings.

Publisher's Summary

The need to love and connect with others creates intimacy, but it also creates many difficulties, even failure. But Thomas Moore emphasizes that if you are willing to live through these difficulties, your life is enriched and the soul thrives. "Soul-intimacy" can be cultivated in many ways, even in letter-writing and conversations. It can be deepened through sexuality and jealousy, relationships that have gone stale, and even the pain of endings. Moore also investigates the possibility of soulful community in society and among nations, citing among others Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, and Sufi poets. Everyone who was touched by Care of the Soul will find this work a continuation of Moore's inspirational insights on human relationships.

    Story
    "Not for the Faint of Heart"

    The subject of Soul Mates is a complex one, and unfortunately, highly tainted by the media, wrong information, and enough reason by the advertising industry to have people scrambling, desperate, and seeking for their soul mates in the opposite direction. In this book, Thomas Moore, a man of God by virtue of his genuine struggle, process, and outcomes in his own search for life meaning, teaches, explains, and guides us on the spiritual mystery and paradox of seeking and experiencing a soul mate. Give it a try and see for yourself. It's the best way to learn and to be engaged in this process. Since this process is not an easy one, you would be wise to use spirituality as a foundation for your primary love relationships.

    "big disappointment"

    Perhaps it's the abridgement, but anything Moore says here has been better said or written by him elsewhere.

    Moore's "Monk Who Dwells in Everyday Life" is one of my favorite audiobooks. Even though in print it was a series of short reflections, the text and Moore's soothing voice combined to make great listening and I expected a similar listen here - but I found "Soul Mates" just plain abrupt and annoying - not to mention his discussion of pornography just plain puzzling - there must have been a richer context in the unabridged book.

    Download instead "Dark Night of the Soul" for similar (but better) content than "Soul Mates". Moore's "Care of the Soul" is also available from Audible, but I found the narration very dull.

    Warning: Don't gift this to a soul mate unless you've listened first -- she/he might think you're planning an affair to enlarge YOUR soul, from listening to some of these anecdotes!

    "Thomas Moore is a wonderful spiritual guide..."

    I can not think of any writer that speaks to me more than Thomas Moore. Thomas Moore is a must for the spiritual journey...
