Palga Gufa – The Divided Soul
It is said that the students asked Israel Master of the Name, “When you pass on, will you ascend to heaven in flaming fire?”
“No,” Israel answered sadly. “I had thought I would, but now that my holy wife has died, I am but a palga gufa. I am a divided soul.”
Remember the Hebrew text: Forty days before birth a voice calls out in heaven. Sam is for Talya and Toby is for Jill. We are born whole and then split in half and sent to find our missing halves. We have, however, an impression of the person we were split from. A roshem, an imago. We seek that person who is to complete us. It is the archetype of that person’s face that forms my imago.
It is therefore to the kind of person who resembles the face upon my image that I am attracted. That person is in effect the other half of my soul print. It is only with this person that I can live my story and fulfill my vocation.
There is a fabulous tale which I tell to help people move beyond the limiting conception that your partner is determined by what might have gone wrong the first few years of life. I give it to you as the final gift in this section on loving perception.
After you read it, take a break. Relax – go for dinner – take a walk. But come back – I can’t wait to meet you on the next path!
