There was a story told by Palto “Humans originally had four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces. It is said that humans had great strength at the time and threatened to conquer the gods. Zeus decided he would split the humans in half as punishment for humanity’s pride. These split humans were in utter misery to the point where they would not eat and would perish. Each human would then forever long for his/her other half; the other half of his/her soul. It is said that when the two find each other, there is an unspoken understanding of one another, that they feel unified and would lie with each other in unity and would know no greater joy than that.”
I believe in this story because I have felt the affect of being bonded to ones soul-mate. It was like no other love I had ever felt before. My eyes became addicted to his face longing to see him whenever I could. My body was hungry for his touch and my ears were eager to hear his voice. I never felt alone even when I was. He could calm my soul by looking at me and I could tell what he was feeling just by holding my palm to his chest and feeling his energy. I loved lying down next to him and listening to his thoughts. I memorized his body language and could tell when he needed rest, encouragement or food. I felt whole and complete. I would look at others relationships and feel pity that they did not have what I had, I could see it lacking in their eyes.
