But as I look back on some of the women I've been enamored with, a lot of that attraction fades over time and without similar goals in life paths or at least similar world views there's no reason to be together.
I believe shadow this time is being the unconscious mind/soul part of life unit. This is my understanding of it. So anima is correct.
Some of us are suppressing our soul when we are going more with ego. Choosing the cheeseburger instead of a fresh salad, since ego says burger tastes better. Sometimes it does actually, but is less healthy. I believe when we use our intuition its more soul than ego or at least choose the intuition over ego. I do it all the time everyday, communicate with my intuition with simple yes or no, or with percentages. What are the odds in this or that etc. What are suggestions from intuition, to be most exact actually. It has brought me so far, although I have gotten unnecessary items that were not suggested, like one new favourite franchaise video game, that I like to play, too much even. I try to balance out the choosing between ego and intuition, sometimes might have gone more to the other then back again.
For now I would not think of having anyone to share my life with, maybe later. I find that I have been increasingly become more and more distant towards other people around, all of them seem to have that slave mentality going on and listening the almighty authority. Maybe I have become a total pessimist I dont know, but it sure seems like everyone around me are just so on another "wavelength" literally perhaps. Could be something to do with the atmosphere tension between countries Russia against NATO mainly, and the mass of immigrants that came here already, still more to come. Some of them are even terrorists. My little brother said something about how Finland is written in some quran or some other text (fake maybe, but taken literally by the extremists), is a "war zone" or "battlefield" thats why they like to rape our women here more than our own citizens like to do so, also because of the justice system. Raping will get you about 2 years of prison which is like a nothing, some even less if it is only abuse and not so severe. Thats how they think apparently, not my words but some of theirs when they were being interviewed about it.
I certainly dont have anything against of them immigrants exept for them who want to only harm us non-believers or believers for "wrong god". That is mainly why I am growing more distant and disliking of any and all religions. About to be allergic to them. My dad doesn't even want to hear anything religious stuff that his mom sometimes tells him. He didn't even want to hear anything of New Age that I once told him. He was right, now even I dont like to hear anything about them.
I luckly didn't go against my intuition and bought that second book from DW, since I wouldn't liked it either, judging by what I have heard about it from others who did buy it. I have wasted my money on other less useful stuff though. I have a pressure washer, have used it about once on my car, like 3 years ago since then it has been in my brothers storage. Only compressor has been in usage for my tires and cleaning my computer. Got other stuff, but thats few examples.
