So Facebook can be of good use sometimes. I spend far too much time on that thing! But, I digress. A friend shared a lovely sentiment by a dude called Jeff Foster. Never heard of him before but I appreciate what he wrote.
THE HIDDEN INVITATION OF LONELINESS
When you're feeling lonely,
it's not the presence of another person that you're missing,
it's your own warm presence.
In search of another,
you've disconnected from yourself -
the greatest pain of all.
Turn towards the place where you stand.
Reconnect with a breath. The morning breeze. The sound of the rain. A silent cup of tea. Dancing sensations in the belly, the chest, the head.
Be here. Sink into gentleness. Watch your loneliness dissolve into exquisite solitude and a fresh morning.
There is a very fine line between loneliness and loveliness.
Be alone, with the miracle of life itself.
- Jeff Foster
I wrote an article about solitude and deeply feel what he's written. What do you think?
