Parting by Charlotte Bronte




“Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.”

~ Kahlil Gibran ~


As we journey through life we develop relationships with others. Some of these relationships do not last and it may leave a deep scar on our hearts. We suffer from negative emotions such as a loss of self-confidence, self-loathing, guilt, bitterness, anguish and anger.

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”

~ Neil Gaiman ~

The most important lessons we learn in our lifetime are from relationships.
  
“The greatest tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease to love.”

~ W. Somerset Maugham ~

When a relationship comes to an end, it means that these two souls have learnt all of the lessons that they were meant to teach each other. It becomes necessary to let go and move on. There is always another soul waiting to join you and love you as you continue on your journey.


The most important lesson that we can learn from every relationship is to love ourselves as every relationship we have with another, reflects back aspects of ourselves.

When we begin to truly accept and love ourselves and see ourselves as loving, pure, kind, positive and creative souls, only then will we be able to magnetise that one soul who is the identical and perfect match to us.

“An act of love that fails is just as much a part of the divine life as an act of love that succeeds, for love is measured by fullness, not by reception.”


~ Harold Loukes ~

 When a soul clings to a broken relationship it hampers the soul and prevents it from meeting that one perfect match for it.

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong;
 but sometimes it is letting go.”



~ Hermann Hesse ~

 We must continue to love for if we don’t open our hearts to receive and give love, the soul will never grow and will not be able to experience the Divine.

 
Parting


THERE'S no use in weeping,
Though we are condemned to part:
There's such a thing as keeping
A remembrance in one's heart:

There's such a thing as dwelling
On the thought ourselves have nurs'd,
And with scorn and courage telling
The world to do its worst.

We'll not let its follies grieve us,
We'll just take them as they come;
And then every day will leave us
A merry laugh for home.

When we've left each friend and brother,
When we're parted wide and far,
We will think of one another,
As even better than we are.

Every glorious sight above us,
Every pleasant sight beneath,
We'll connect with those that love us,
Whom we truly love till death !

In the evening, when we're sitting
By the fire perchance alone,
Then shall heart with warm heart meeting,
Give responsive tone for tone.

We can burst the bonds which chain us,
Which cold human hands have wrought,
And where none shall dare restrain us
We can meet again, in thought.

So there's no use in weeping,
Bear a cheerful spirit still;
Never doubt that Fate is keeping
Future good for present ill !


~ Charlotte Bronte ~
