There is a divine love we all are meant to share with another (soulmate) . This love isn't drenched in romance, but serves God. Both souls embark on a spiritual journey to enlightenment and once there they are (re)united. In order to receive the love you are meant to experience in this lifetime, you must let go of past conceptions of what a relationship should be like. Some don't make it to that divine connection because they settle for a lesson instead of the victor.
It can't possibly just be an Earth orbiting in space. Granted there may or may not be other life forms out there, but one thing that's in abundance is energy. That same energy that's inside of you. The universe is a faithful guide. Life exist below, above, and beyond. How open are you to receiving its messages?
