Meeting your soul mate in the World of Forms can be a daunting experience and that's putting it mildly. Of course, everyone's experience will be different.
Note: My definition of the "World of Forms" is the physical, material reality we currently live in. I'm not sure exactly how to define a soul mate except to say you will know them when you see them. You will know them as surely as your know yourself, perhaps more, and it will become clear to you beyond the shadow of a doubt that somewhere in another Time you were once together. This may lead to your first "out of time" experience, such as a premonition or a memory of something that has not yet happened to you in this lifetime.
It's my personal opinion that when soul mates discover one another in this world it generates a tremendous force the expansive nature of which this shallow reality is unable to contain. To me, this force is True Love. And the sheer magnetism and frequency of it can tear down the world.
Knowing this, the reality program, in a desperate attempt at self-preservation, will do all it can to prevent the lovers from A) meeting in the first place, or B) remaining together for any length of time.
Unfortunately, soul mates may be faced with very limited options for staying together.
Here are a few films I like (there are many others) which show some actions the lovers could choose to take:
#1: Find a way to change the laws governing reality:
#2: Time travel and reincarnate until they figure out how to conquer reality:
#3: Travel back in time for brief romantic encounters with each other:
The Time Traveler's Wife
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Somewhere in Time
#4: Agree to stay away from one another (to spare pain/keep the world intact):
#5: Transform into a higher state of being and become immortal together:
I'd like to end this on a high note. The upside is that after encountering your soul mate you become aware of an infinite spiritual connection existing between the two of you.
Although your love may not be able to hold its form in this world, it can never be broken and you always know where to find it (hint: because he/she IS you). Never give up.
