and this separation must eventually occur
because body meeting body is transient.
Only marriage with Freedom will last.
Any friendship with anything else
will not abide and will bite you in the end.
This isn’t to say you should run away from relationships.
Nature is not foolish: man and woman together is okay,
being a householder is not a hindrance to Freedom.
Even all the Rishis and gods are householders.
You just have to be with the right person,
going in the right direction
so that you keep focused on Self.
