Space- The common connotations/visualizations associated with this word can be many…depending on the mental make up of ones mind at a given time….

In a day to day living… with all its pressures…deadlines….habits…expectations….Be it in the workplace….be it in any relationship….(with spouse…GF/BF…child…)…the undercurrent that normally accompanies oneself is outlined hazily below…

A feeling of cramped-ness…suffocation.. and the need for some open expanse.. an area to roam around freely… to drift… to dream…to visualize….to float….

Further each person intrinsically carries some strands of creativity within…Some may be fortunately blessed enough to freely express these creative manifestations… while some may carry these undercurrents of creativity within…

Some may have consciously repressed or kept it dormant… Some may be unconsciously carrying them within…searching for happiness…yearning…..

Add to this…each individual’s idiosyncrasies… the albeit unknown.. the hidden… the latent… that surface once in a relationship…. Welcome to the world of Relationship:-)

And Relationships demand time…and understanding…. Relationship is all about where “WE” understands “I”…

But frankly… the extent to which the other can attempt to understand the “others I” is limited… and more over the extent to which one has understood his “own I” is even more limited…

It has so ended up…. in some cases… that individual space has to be found again….

So far all couples in a relationship…

This can be experimented by couples in any stage of a relationship….”Spend your holidays alone”…be it whether you are madly in love or experiencing a plateau or just about beginning the ride downhill or uphill…

For a week to 10 days….just go diverse ways….different geographical continents for holidays…alone… the other need not tag along…no daily communication….no constant messaging… Be Alone… Absolutely Alone…Absolutely free of the other…

Alone….

Permit the creativity to flow…

Let your hair down alone….

Ponder alone….

Wipe a tear drop alone…

Relax alone…

Meditate alone…

For the final journey happens “Alone”… The other at the maximum can only be a facilitator…

The space that gets created in this “Alone-ness”…in each individual….can easily accommodate the other…it happens of its own accord…

This space unlike the above mentioned space is liberating… un-cramped.. truly as liberating as the open sky….

And then… when back together….you carry some element of the beyond… a freshness into the relationship…An expansive space permeates each other… And then…a true bonding…a true understanding of relationship happens…where the “I” truly understands the “WE”
