How to use separation in a sentence?

  1. Manny Alvarez:

  2. H.W. Mann:

    In truth, true love is beyond thoughts and emotions. When we begin to spiritually awaken, we realize separation is an illusion. At the source there is God consciousness.

That realization brings about a state of consciousness called love. It is understanding of the oneness of creation. We are all in this together.
