A Man with Soul: Mak Shk
Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced. One can connect with anything and without saying a word. Just in front of my room a sunbird came and sat on a little tree one day. The door was open and a perfect view was there to be seen. It was getting dark. I stopped all other works. It simply sat on one of the branches after hovering all around the tree. I had to complete some assignments and my usual time to sleep was after 6 hours more. My simple movements were disturbing her, and I decided it was time to sleep now, only for her, as I didn’t want to disturb her. I watched her for a long time and then finally slept.
The next morning, a sound touched my heart. She was singing in her language, a sweet chirping. Great was to begin the day with.
The same time in the evening I saw the bird again sitting on the same branch. And now I knew she would stay. Nobody’s arrival has ever made me so happy. It soon got dark again and I was busy with my assignments. A small noise would wake her; she would open her eyes slowly and simply look at me, and I knew it was time to switch off and go to sleep.
This small sunbird has made me change my whole lifestyle. Going to bed early and waking up early. I started feeding her little by little. In the beginning, she used to fly away. Gradually she was comfortable with my presence. She starting eating from my hands. And if she was sleeping and I approached her, she would slowly open her eyes and close them again saying to me “good night” in her language.
One evening she did not come. I waited the whole night and the next day too. I waited for days. But my lovely bird has gone away. It was hard for me to accept that nothing lasts forever. She touched my Soul too deep. A great saying: “If one has never loved a bird, a part of your soul remains untouched.”
When do you feel your most soulful? Nature directly connects me with my soul. There is a lot of silence, but it speaks much more than anything else. The gentle breeze, the chirping birds, the blooming flowers and green grass to sit on. Trying to appreciate the beauty that is all around me in every moment; blending myself with the beauty around me and becoming one in the process.
The other thing is when I blend myself with music. It is not just simple listening, but experiencing the notes. One forgets everything. Music has magnetism.
What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? First of all you need to love yourself. Only then one is able to usher love on to others. One needs to give all the love one has in every form for a soulful relationship. No one is perfect and we should love the person fully. Both should be able to understand each other’s silence, and answer them with love. When words become too much, seal them with a kiss. Keep everything else simple. There is no need to hurry; enjoy every moment with your soulmate. Give faith, love, and trust and your relationship will get wings to fly.
What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? Many think that we are just exist as bodies on earth. We are here for much more than that.We are souls having an human experience. The whole purpose I am here is to connect with the almighty and experience the extreme bliss. To fulfill this purpose we have the path of Love. It has to be unconditional and never ending, increasing each day. Taking what you get and breathing out love to your beloved. There is no need to wait: Just give your Love to every moment we have. Love will come on its own.
I feel awesome when I read on your Soulmate Experience page about soulmates’ love for each other. It gives wings to one’s hope and we get the answer: “Love is the only answer.”
