This word itself is so broken. I don’t know how many hearts, how many lives this word has ruined. But every coin has two sides. This word no doubt is a huge destructor but sometimes it turns out to be a blessing that makes us realize the worth of that very person or thing.

Khalil Gibran says, “And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation”.

Separation is a strong word to handle.

Its aura is so huge that it can bend any hard rock. I never realized this thing until the moment I encountered this feeling of separation.

It seemed so easy to leave you behind. Inspite of the fact that I loved you, I wanted to be with you, I was not aware about the depth of my love. All those materialistic things seemed more interesting and I wanted to be a free bird.

It was only that moment, when I actually had a face-off with separation and I realized that I am not going to be free, I am being caged that too by myself. I realized the worth of love, the depth and the vastness of love, how eternal it is. That was the moment I realized, love is to be free. And that was the moment I wanted to feel the depth of love by drowning myself in. It was me, who was responsible for I felt bound. Love never demanded anything. Neither did you!

Infinite is the life, so does love adds on to it. Breaking all the shackles of negative emotions to embrace the depth of love and the tranquility of life.

I never knew, separation could actually make an unbreakable bond until the moment, separation came between us.

You feel separated because you feel the differences around. You give attention to them. But once you realize the connection you have and accept that everything in this world is interconnected, you will become aware of the fact that you are no longer a separate entity. You are free, not bound to anything. Love provided you that freedom. Because this is what love does. Separation, brings you close. Separation makes you explore everything and help you become self-aware.

All you have to do is, stop considering separation a villain. You can make separation, take the role of a Hero in your picture.
