Anonymous said: Hello Sam, what is your view on love relationships? is the soul mate a real thing..if so how do you know? Is a soul mate someone actually from a past life? What are your thoughts on intimacy. Should one stay pure till marriage.
Soulmates are indeed a real thing. One theory is that we recognize in others those who we have loved in the past. We can tell a soul mate because we are instantly familiar with them. We know their laugh. We know their habits without knowing them. Should one stay “pure” till marriage? That is up to you. If you come from a religious tradition which values this then by all means stay chaste. However, sex does not make one “impure”. Sex is a form of physical love which is as pure as you make it. Sex which is harmful, cruel or degrading is impure. Sex between lovers is as pure as the water from the clearest mountain spring.
