Recognizing that there is a part of something rather than a whole signifies that spiritually we have not seen the whole picture. Parting suggests division, as in the parting of the waters. When in dreams it strikes us that we can only see part of something it is the unseen part that needs careful consideration. A parting in the hair signifies a duality in our nature. Parting from a dear friend suggests there may be some difficulty to overcome in that relationship. When an object or drawing is divided into parts we can decide to break an everyday task into its various components to help us succeed. The number of parts may be significant.
