Loneliness Is Not About Separation From Others But From Ourselves

Being alone does not mean we are lonely.

Being lonely does not mean we are alone.

Loneliness is about separation.

Not separation from others, but from ourselves.

When we are connected to our true authentic nature, we never feel lonely.

That’s because, at the very heart and core of who and what we are, we are a connected eternal spirit.

To cultivate the connection to our soul, being alone serves us.

It is much easier to connect to ourselves when there are no external distractions.

When we look deep inside we may find some scary things, yet ultimately, if we go deep enough, we connect to our true divine nature.

We can also find our divine nature by seeing it in others and connecting to them.

Yet, more often than not, we use connecting to others as an excuse not to look inside.

Why is that?

Perhaps it is because we consciously don’t know what we’ll find there.

Perhaps it is because we fear all those things we have been suppressing will rise up.

Perhaps it is because we just don’t feel worthy.

And yet if we sit still, even for five minutes and close our eyes and feel what is inside of us, a whole new world opens up.

It is a world that is rich and full of texture and feeling.

A world full of connection and support.

Our loneliness comes from disconnecting to that rich inner world.

Empowerment is not about controlling our environment.

Empowerment is not about controlling other people.

Empowerment is not about controlling the events around us.

Empowerment is about control over our own choices, our own responses, and our own focus.

It can be easy for us to focus on what’s wrong with the world, how other people are crazy, and how when people think differently from us, they are wrong.

And yet it is a choice to focus on what’s right with the world, on what’s good about other people, and to be curious when someone has a different opinion from us.

It is not up to us to “fix” the world. It is up to us to “fix” how we feel about the world, and make peace with it. For it is by making peace with the world inside of us that we make peace in the world around us.

We can choose to see the events around us as reasons to despair or reasons to get motivated. As a reason to run away, or a reason to step up that much more.

Where is your focus? Are you falling into the trap of fear or choosing to step up and allow your light to shine that much brighter?
