SOUL – mate / sister / brother………do they exist ??

A soulmate is a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity. This is a textual  definition, how would you like to define it ? Do you have any other view on it ?
As one knows that there were so few people in the beginning, and now the population is constantly growing, from where are the new souls coming? How are soul mates created? What exactly are soul mates ?
Well, these questions are tough to answer as everyone has there own point of views. Let us look at some of the views.
One way to look at it can be that we all know that we have souls inside our empty body vessels. And when we die, our soul leaves the vessel behind. The soul then while reincarnating, divides into two – a male part and a female part ; and those souls in turn transform into two and so on.
In Hinduism, the concept of soul mate is endeavored as well, it is called Ardhangini or the better half. It is believed that a man is incomplete without a woman.
Recently, I had read a novel, you all must have heard about Paulo Coelho’s Brida. In this novel, he has explained the concept of soulmate very beautifully.
“ In each life, we feel a mysterious obligation to find at least one of those soulmates. The greater love that separated them feels pleased with the love that brings them together again. “
They are simple words, but the meaning is beautiful.
But, one question that usually comes to our mind is –
“ How will I know who my soul mate is? ”
For me, soul mates, they do exist but not always romantically. I think there are certain people you will meet in your life who you just connect with more than anyone else and you just know it isn’t a typical thing and you understand each other perfectly. And this person won’t always be your “significant other” , it could be anyone, from your friend to sibling to parents to anyone you’ve ever interacted with.
