Most Twin Flames have the goal of experiencing unconditional love with their partner, but what is this really...and what is their "spiritual purpose" together? What could be your highest spiritual purpose together in the world? It would seem to have to be outside of the ego's agendas (ego equaling fear). The highest purpose is evolving out of the world of duality, and going home to God. And who will choose this if they are in the ego-mind? And for anyone who has ever truly experienced the love between Twins, could deny the existence of a God? So, if the worldly goal is learning unconditional love, then the ultimate spiritual goal is union and going home...and showing others the way, not by actions, but by the love expressed...the joining. So, that brings us to what is this love...the meaning of "unconditional"?
In the past, as I examined the word, I thought it to mean loving another, with no conditions or expectations. But what is "unconditional" in its most extreme definition? It means NO conditions. Meaning, there is no condition that the love is expressed only to someone you already love or have "special" relationships with, such as a spouse, mother, child, brother or friend. It means that you express this Divine Love for all. It means that your love for the beggar, or sinner or saint all equate to the same. Your enemy is your mother. The criminal is your lover. All are your Brothers (Sisters) in eternity, in Spirit. If you can love everyone to the same intensity, you are on the road to oneness with your Twin. (Note that this does not mean you let others take advantage of you, but your love of them is known, albeit silent perhaps, in your heart and higher mind.) You have understanding of why others do what they do, what drives them, because you are one with them. We are all one. There is no other way or truth. Our Twin is our path to learning this, whether they have run from us at the moment, are on the other side or are traversing the journey with us here. The love of the Twin, unconditionally (meaning whether they are in a condition of being your partner or spouse, or not there at all), can lead to the ability to transfer that love to all, which is the ultimate goal in this existence. Any other "spiritual" purpose is in the world is and is just that - worldly; for Love is all that can save, and return us home.
If we believe that our thoughts create reality, then what we see outside of ourselves, is the effect, not the cause. When we focus on the outside world for our happiness and fulfillment of love, we are merely looking at something that is reflecting our mind/thoughts (our Twin is a perfect example of this...the mirror, not the cause). For example, when you think you see signs in the world...is it a sign, or a reflection of what you have been thinking about? Our thoughts, whether they are of the ego, or Higher Mind, create our world. It is not the other way around, although we delude ourselves into thinking that the outside world, an aftereffect or reflection, has the power to make us happy or unhappy. Can a rainy day really make you unhappy, or is it your perception that a rainy day should make you unhappy, or disappoint in some way?
All power, all love, lies within our own Mind, when we join with our Higher Self, and not the ego-mind (looking outside ourselves). Everything outside of us is an idol, or idol worship. When we worship idols, they become like clouds that block the sun, when we are thirsting in a hot desert. They don't put out the sun, but distract us into thinking they do. And inevitably, the idol will disappoint, when the cloud moves, and the sun shines still. When we return to the Mind of our Higher Self, the Twin can be the vehicle for expressing Love, and sending it outwards. First, we must open to and desire this task, in order for the outer world to change...in which case the Twin may return...or we have to accept the seeming separation as is, and work from there. We cannot choose for the Twin. Whether we are with our Twin, or not, our challenge is to learn unconditional love, and accept and bless the world, by extending that love to all. This is the spiritual purpose, and as such, what else is there?
~I've included a section from "A Course in Miracles", which I was guided to, when asking about Twin Flames. The poetic wording can speak on much deeper levels, than anything I could write here:
"In this world, God's Son comes closest to himself in a holy relationship. There he begins to find the certainty his Father has in him. And there he finds his function of restoring his Father's laws to what was held outside them, and finding what was lost. Only in time can anything be lost, and never lost forever. So do the parts of God's Son gradually join in time, and with each joining is the end of time brought nearer. Each miracle of joining is a mighty herald of eternity. No one who has a single purpose, unified and sure, can be afraid. No one who shares his purpose with him can not be one with him.
Each herald of eternity sings of the end of sin and fear. Each speaks in time of what is far beyond it. Two voices raised together call to the hearts of everyone, to let them beat as one. And in that single heartbeat is the unity of love proclaimed and given welcome. Peace to your holy relationship, which has the power to hold the unity of the Son of God together. You give to your brother for everyone, and in your gift is everyone made glad. Forget not Who has given you the gifts you give, and through your not forgetting this, will you remember Who gave the gifts to Him to give to you."
