= SOLITUDE =
Alone we never are
For the most loyal companion comes to aid
The universe in the form of solitude
Always gently takes our hand
The last three posts were a series called Solitude.
Meant to express how when one feels alone for whatever reason, the universe is always there. It takes our shape, shapes it self into it and expands it, so that we see ourselves in the world and see the world in ourselves.
It is that connection with everything around us, how we are a part of it and it is a part of us, the reason we are never alone.
It's in the our moments of deepest solitude in which that connection becomes the most clear, in which if we see clearly we see the resemblance and feel the presence by our side. This is why, if befriended correctly, solitude is not only a loyal companion but a powerful ally.
It gives us time and space to reflect, to feel, to wonder, to act in ourselves and therefore in the world. Is the antidote for distraction in which loneliness creeps. For loneliness comes only when we forget the connection we have with what surrounds us.
I am thankful for solitude lately. I'm glad I found an ally and hopefully a friend.
If you feel alone, if you feel you have no one to turn to, no one to understand, or pull you in.
Look inwards or outwards, fell the connection and you'll find solitude in it with its hand reached out. Take it.
