Steve's Vaguely Cryptic Post Of The Day ...
Here's a bit of a cultural lesson for you ...
"Anam Cara refers to the Celtic spiritual belief of souls connecting and bonding.
In Celtic Spiritual tradition, it is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body, what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond be formed, it is said you have found your Anam Cara or soul friend.
Your Anam Cara always accepts you as you truly are, holding you in beauty and light. In order to appreciate this relationship, you must first recognize your own inner light and beauty. This is not always easy to do. The Celts believed that forming an Anam Cara friendship would help you to awaken your awareness of your own nature and experience the joys of others. "
I am a firm believer in the concept of Anam Cara. I believe it's a powerful force that can happen anywhere. You can meet some total stranger in a chatroom and connect with that person and become completely open and trusting with that individual so that your two souls begin to flow together.
Good to know.
