A stock theme of countless romantic comedies is accidental love. In these stories love appears as a stroke from the blue, usually when least expected. A man misses his train and ends up meeting the woman of his dreams. A package is delivered to the wrong address, and the ensuing events bring together a couple whose paths would not otherwise have crossed.
These seductive stories can capture our imagination, but they also portray love as a random, capricious force that blesses some and passes over others. In A Path to Love, Deepak Chopra writes that in contrast with the romantic images that inundate our culture, falling in love is never accidental: “There are no accidents in spiritual life, only patterns we haven’t yet recognized. All love is based on the search for spirit. This is the first major insight to be found in romantic love – it really isn’t about two people who have fallen madly for each other; it is about two people seeing spirit in each other.”
In this unfolding spiritual journey, many singles are looking for a romantic relationship . . . a long-term partner who shares their values and passion for inner awakening and conscious living. To help these individuals find each other, the Gaia online community has launched a new dating site. Gaia Soulmates was created specifically for people who are interested in mind-body health, spiritual connection, community building, and the welfare of the planet and all its inhabitants.
Gaia.com is an online community of members dedicated to supporting each other in fulfilling their deepest intentions and dreams. Gaia Soulmates grew out of the original Gaia community, in response to the growing number of requests for a section of the site dedicated to singles seeking a romantic relationship. Gaia Soulmates offers a free basic membership that allows members to search, contact others, and be contacted. People from throughout the world are invited to join and meet kindred spirits from the global community.
