Loneliness vs Aloneness

Feelings of aloneness can arise when we are not in partnership with another or when we feel misunderstood by those around us. In those moments, we have a choice: we can feel lonely or we can celebrate the freedom that solitude can bring. The human condition carries the need to be accepted, loved and desired as we seek the approval of family or friends. If you are in a period of aloneness in your life, be aware of how you are choosing to experience it (and remember, what you fight, you strengthen).

All relationships can be distracting – especially the good ones. because of this, the soul will often arrange to have moments alone to do serious work. We have a better change of a life-changing “aha” moment when we can focus on our inner awareness. Ultimately, each of us much learn the beauty of being comfortable with our aloneness while allowing those who grace our lives to add their unique flavor to our experience.

Loneliness is absence of the other. Aloneness is the presence of oneself. ~Osho

Embrace moments when you have the opportunity to be led by the sense of adventure. When you move into the unknown with the trusting spirit of a child and allow yourself to be open and vulnerable, even the smallest things of life can be doorways of the greatest moments on your journey of discovery. The search helps you to grow. Experiencing new things allow you to discover new aspects within yourself. Stepping into the challenge of the unknown opens the doors of possibility.

Today my intention is to seek the new within every experience. Like a child, I am willing to walk through the Now with a sense of excitement and adventure.
