I feel like one of those strange other-selves of RichardandLeslie- the couple who could be ONE when I read of their divorce. I find our about this after my own twinflame and I are reading Bridge Across Forever together as one of the tools we use to open up communications together… How profoundly Leslie and Richard have moved me all of my life!! I was seven years old when I read JLSeagull and it turned like key in the proverbial lock for me – opened up the universe I had “forgotten”. One of the things I questioned was what Richard explored in Bridge: what is a soulmate? Are soulmates for real and if so, where is mine?? More importantly, how do I become what it is I am searching for? I found my soulmate, and he found me… but as a dear soulful friend tells people: a oulmate is not what anyone thinks they are!!!! We fight, we defend, we get confused, we muck about with out lower lesser selves in petty ways – but we learn forgiveness and compassion and we are learning what LOVE is and that is not what anyone thinks it is, either. We have chosen to commit without marriage, which seems like a more urgent and eternal vow of commitment to us (and no involving the state and federal government s or their tax laws)… no business deals or financial wranglings, no looking for security in eachother, from eachother. We are being shown that we have to find out who the REAL soulmate is, within our very selves, completely intact and inately whole, functional, never outside of us unless and until we have had our atonement with that ONE. Otherwise, at least we have seen this in our lives – we are barking up the wrong tree, diving for pearls in the wrong waters and coming up with nothing from nothing.
I am sorry to hear about Richard and Leslie divorcing – but I do not know the particulars, and I can only hope that their friendship is intact and that they continue to evolve… for such beautiful and wonderful representatives of Life and Light they both are!!!

Thank you, Namaste,
Li Li

Such people have much to give and little to demand. When two people with much to give marry each other, life should be a joy. At least, that is what I believe and how it has been for me for these past 38 years.
