HELLO AND WELCOME TO EPISODE 28 OF ONION UNLIMITED, THE PODCAST. I’m your host, Daniel Torridon. Ok, so, I’ve got some very profound thoughts I want to share with you today, about consciousness and relationships. I’m not sure if I can put this into words effectively, but I will try.
So, first of all, I believe in a Source, a Source Consciousness—God Consciousness—call it what you will, but it’s a level of existence, of being, that underpins everything. It’s eternal, unchangeable, outside of space and time. It just is, unlike consciousness as we usually experience it.
Our consciousness as humans relies heavily on time—sequential thoughts, one after another—and of course, as Einstein explained, time is inseparably linked to space. So our experience of consciousness is very much a physical, temporal one whereas Source Consciousness, unaffected by space or time, just is—there are no sequential thoughts. It’s like all thoughts just are, existing in a singularity, unencumbered by space, time, physical reality.
However, as well as its eternal perspective, Source also can experience consciousness on a temporal plane, through us, through animals, and plants, and I believe through everything that is—even rocks, and the earth, and the sky. All things have consciousness—maybe not the same as our consciousness—but nevertheless, it’s there, and as a Whole, the entire Universe has consciousness.
Now, as fragmented instances of Source Consciousness, we generally find it difficult to experience each other’s thoughts and feelings—unless we are one of those rare empaths—and so we feel a separateness to each other. It’s usually only by employing the quality of empathy—or telepathy if that’s a thing—that we can relate to each other on a purely conscious level.
But every now and then, a person comes into our lives that we feel deeply, deeply connected to. I’ve been fortunate enough to have experienced this a few times in my life, twice in previous romantic relationships that ultimately didn’t work out for various reasons, but there was a deep connection that I couldn’t put into words. At the time, I experienced a profound feeling of love, not just physically, but on a mental, emotional, and even spiritual level, but there was a certain immaturity about it. I didn’t really understand what was happening at the time, and when the relationships ended, I was crushed and thought I, we, had somehow failed, but in hindsight, I think these earlier relationships were preparing me for my current relationship which has the deep connection I speak of, actually on an uncanny level, off the charts—it’s like we are in each other’s heads this time around—and it’s much more mature than my earlier relationships. It feels safe, secure, like I’m not desperately trying to hold on to the person. There’s a feeling of “we just are”, like there is an understanding of what is happening, that maybe didn’t exist in my earlier, younger relationships. Finally, I think I know what’s happening to me, and it’s great. That feeling of deep connection, having found one person in 8 billion that you can relate to on all levels, and at an amazing depth, is really quite amazing.
I have a theory that Source Consciousness inhabits all humans, and for the most part, we are all very different, which explains why the connections maybe are not there with everyone, but occasionally the fragmented instances of Source are so remarkably similar—it’s almost like one soul inhabits multiple bodies, and if you meet a person with the same soul as you—and there may be more than one example out there, I don’t know—but there’s an instant connection. The connection might just be a mental one or an emotional or spiritual one, and that’s okay. It may be a physical one that develops into a romantic relationship. It may be just one of those levels of connection or several, or it could be—if you’re very very blessed—all four, mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical, but it’s effectively like meeting yourself on some level. Now, that doesn’t mean that you are destined to be together forever, or that the relationship is necessarily a romantic one. Sometimes the connection is purely a mental one, other times emotional or spiritual, sometimes it’s all four, and that really is incredible and very rare.
I mentioned I have experienced this several times in my life. One I’m thinking of particularly now isn’t a romantic one. It’s with a male friend who I’ve only ever met online, but again, there was this instant connection—with him it was mentally and spiritually—and it felt like I was talking to myself. The thoughts and ideas I have about Source and God and the Universe, he holds to those ideas also.
In the case of my earlier romantic relationships, I said we parted company but that doesn’t mean the relationships were a failure. I believe they served a purpose. They were helping me, us, know what we valued in a relationship, and helping us understand ourselves better so that when “the one” comes along—the one you connect with on every level—you “just know”, and it’s like “Wow!”
Like I say, I’m finding it hard to put this into words, it’s quite an esoteric concept, but hopefully, you can understand what I mean. I’m going to think about this more, maybe read up a little more on the subject of “soul connections” and “twin flames” which is an interesting topic. In the meantime, let me know what you think and if you’ve experienced something similar in your life.
That’s all from me this time. Join me again soon.
