You may have heard about this scarlet thread before, the thread of love. But is it true? How do we know we’re meant to be with someone?
This is what an ancient Chinese proverb says: “An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, and circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle. But it will never break.”
The legend tells us that two people who will share an amazing love story are forever connected through this red thread, also called red string of fate. This is also true for people who choose to go their separate ways.
So regardless of what happens in their lives, this bond will always exist. They may not see each other for months of years. If the love is still there, so is this thread. And perhaps they are destined to meet randomly and start all over again.
This invisible red string may change its form, but it remains there. It can get tangled in time, stretched, contracted. In other words, it can suffer many changes, just as we do.
But it will never break.
This is the equivalent of the soulmate concept that exists in Western culture. We all want to believe we’re connected with someone on a higher level of existence. We’re all longing for that kind of love that never breaks.
We’re determined to look for our other half and fulfill our destinies together. This won’t always be easy as the path to greatness isn’t a smooth one. There will be circumstances that will challenge the strength of your bond.
But the journey will be worth it because true love trumps anything!
