“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit…

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“What was true yesterday may no longer be true today. What is true today might not necessarily be true tomorrow.”

“La vérité d’hier n’est pas celle d’aujourd’hui. La vérité d’aujourd’hui, n’est pas forcément celle de demain.”

– Jean-Claude Mira, professeur de biologie 1995
Amphithéâtre Claude Bernard, Université Paris 5 René Descartes.

These are words of wisdom from my biology teacher back in 1995, when I was a first year med student. This struck a chord with me and till this day I am applying this principle to anything I learn or unlearn.
– To all the badass teachers we encounter in our lives, THANK YOU!!

“Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.

Generally speaking, these meetings occur when we reach a limit, when we need to die and be reborn emotionally. These meetings are waiting for us, but more often than not, we avoid them happening. If we are desperate, though, if we have nothing to lose, or if we are full of enthusiasm for life, then the unknown reveals itself, and our universe changes direction.”

– Paul Coelho, Eleven minutes.
