Hello everyone, I am also new here (registered a while ago, but still hesitant to share my personal experiences). I can relate so much to these emotions. I have loved a certain famous person for the past 20 years, and knew I would never have a chance to meet him (he was from a different country). He died two years ago, and that was unbearable to me, even though I have absolutely no connection to this man in reality. My grief is still so strong and overwhelming every day that I can hardly think about anyone or anything else beside him; I mourn him as if I lost a dear relative. I never realized I loved him so much until he was gone from this world. The strangest thing is I know for sure I have never met him before in any of my past lives (I remember so many of them, and he was not anyone I knew). Also I have a strange and bitter certainty that our paths will never cross in any future lives, either. And yet my soul’s yearning for his soul is so strong and unwavering, that I have no idea how to explain it. Just wanted to share my feelings here, as this thread seems fitting. So glad that there are many other people experiencing similar things.
