It’s simply a momentary state of being. It’s not the unspeakable demon that we sometimes prescribe it to be. It doesn’t need to be suffocated or suppressed.
Perhaps it just needs to be recognised and nurtured. Maybe it just needs a little love. Not the kind of love that’s found in externals, but rather that deep, deep wholeness that we all feel oh so deep within.
You know what I’m talking about.
You know that you really are loved.
You really are beautiful.
You really are perfect, just as you are.
Maybe you’ve convinced yourself otherwise, but deep down you know.
“Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
I know that sometimes it can feel like you really are alone and infinitesimal in this big, colossal world. But don’t forget that every day, every step, every thought you think and feeling you feel, Mother Earth is there supporting you. Enveloping you in her sturdy grounds and coaxing you gently with her subtle cues.
Always, she is there.
“Loneliness is the human condition. No-one is ever going to fill that space.
The best you can do is know yourself. Know what you want. And don’t let the cattle get in the way.”
So dear friend, next time you feel Mr Loneliness arrive, welcome him, allow him to stay a while and converse a little, knowing that soon he’ll be on his merry way. Let it be a reminder to yourself to reconnect with that eternal source within, that light that is always shining, just waiting to be seen.
