If no one answers your call make a stride and walk alone When everyone is closed and shut Open your mind and speak alone.Walk Alone, Walk Alone, Walk Alone If they turn away and desert and the wild path obstacles exerts trample the thorns no matter the hurtAnd Alone along blood-lined track traverse.Walk Alone, Walk Alone, Walk Alone If no one holds up the light and a fierce storm troubles the night, with the thunder flame of pain ignite your heart, alone, and let it burn brightWalk Alone, Walk Alone, Walk Alone
~ Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of beingalone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of beingalone.~ When we cannot bear to be alone, it means we do not properly value the onlycompanion we will have from birth to death… ourselves.~ Loneliness can be conquered only by those who can bear solitude.~You will not find a soul mate in the quiet of your room. You must go to a noisy placeand look in the quiet corners. ~It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finallyhear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorstepsof our hearts.~ Never be afraid to sit a while and think.~ Only in quiet waters do thing mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.~ In solitude the mind gains strength & learns to lean upon itself . ~ You can’t be lonelY, if You like the person You’re alone with .~ We are free up to the point of choice , then the choice controls the chooser.
~ Solitude shows us what should be;society shows us what we are. ~In solitude, where we are least alone .~ Inside myself is a place where I live allalone, and thats where I renew my springsthat never dry up.
Living with others leaves us exhausted. At least forsometime during a day, you just need to close youreyes -- closing your eyes means you are closed tothe world, nothing exists, only you -- so you canface “yourself” directly.Loneliness is not the right word, when you talk of takingstrength from it. Aloneness should be the right word.Loneliness is low energy, while aloneness is overflowingenergy. Loneliness is something that you never want, it is asif you are a victim; but aloneness is something that you havedesired, longed for -- and now it is there. It is a deepachievement. Through it one can grow, but throughloneliness one falls. Through loneliness one starts seekingothers and uses them. Through aloneness, if it happens thatothers are around one shares, but never uses them. But thesedistinctions will come by and by....
First you have to watch whether you are feeling miserable or charged. Ifit is misery, it is loneliness, so throw it. If it is aloneness, then close allthe doors of the room and enjoy it. Let it be a profound experience ofecstasy. Or just sit silently as if you are the king of the whole world.Aloneness has to be cherished and nourished, and loneliness has to beavoided because it is like a disease, like a worm that goes on eating youfrom within.Ordinarily when people feel lonely they seek company; but thats notright, it is not going to help.When you are lonely seek nature, not company. Go to the tree and talkto it. Go to the rock, touch it, feel it. Go for a long walk and feel yourbody against the wind. Do something with nature, because it is notcompany in the same sense that human beings are. In nature thecompany is there, but you are still alone -- thats the difference.Nature simply gives you silent company -- unobtrusive, non-interfering;it doesnt force anything on you. Go to nature, and suddenly you willfeel your loneliness changing into aloneness . Winners recognize their limitations but focus on their strengths. Losers recognize their strengths but focus on their weaknesses.
When you are alone, sometime dont even go to nature, go deep intoyourself. Try this once......The moment one accepts his loneliness, he transcends society. That isthe only meaning of leaving the society. It is not leaving the actualsociety. Wherever you go, you create a society. Even with the trees,even with the animals, a family will be created and society will be there.Now you are alone. As there is no one to adulterate it, it is so pure,innocent and beautiful. Still you can ask what is to be done with thisaloneness.Nothing is to be done because every doing, is nothing but the escapefrom this aloneness. This aloneness is not to be left and escaped from.You must be deeply in it and you must live with it. You must walk thepath of life totally alone; amidst the crowd, with fellow travellers. buttotally alone.When two persons are walking on a road, they are not walking as two,they are walking as one and one. There are two lonelinesses walking.You must live in the family, but alone. Now there may be five members,but there are five lonelinesses living in a home.
And the moment you understand your loneliness you becomecompassionate There is a compassion now for others and theirloneliness.Everyone is lonely--the wife, the child, the husband. But they do nothave compassion and sympathy. They do not behave in a lovingmanner. Because, they are using the others as an escape. The wife isusing the husband as a means to escape from her loneliness, andbecause of this there is possession. There is every fear that if this manforgets her, if he is gone then she becomes lonely. So this man hasbecome an escape. She is not aware of her loneliness. She does notwant to be aware of it. So she becomes aware of her husband and thepossession. She clings. The husband is clinging in his own way. The wifeis an escape for his loneliness.We are alone. The moment this realisation is there, that man is alone,then there is no escape. Because there is no escape possible. This is justwishing. There is no actual escape. “let us not praY to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless when facing them.”
The wife with a husband is as lonely as she was before, but we createillusionary escapes, illusion of togetherness. Our whole society, ourfamily, our nations, our clubs, groups, organisations, these are allescapes from ones loneliness.How ugly it is that no one thinks himself worth living with himself. If Iam alone in my room, I am bored. Bored with myself. So a bored persongoes to another bored person, and they both try to transcend theboredom. Mathematically the possibility is otherwise. The boredomwill be doubled. Now the bored will be doubly bored. And everyone willthink that the other does not wish to help.You must begin to live the moment that comes to you. Live totally. Liveit alone. Live it moment to moment.We choose our joys and sorrowslong before we experiencethem.Things that hurt, instruct.To lose patience is to lose the battle.
Still… Spend time with your Family. Spend time with your People. Spend time for your Customers. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out once a while. Take time to renew yourself. Find time for maintenance. Spend time on Preventing than on Solving Problems ***** Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter.****Set your priorities, the rest is just pebbles and sand.Believe in yourself, know what you want, and make it happen!“it is verY simple to be happY, but it is verY difficult to be simple.”
“Give Me Strength… This is my prayer to thee, my lord---strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart. Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows. Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might. Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles. And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.”
Our deepest fear is… that ,we are inadequate.Actually…We are powerful beyond measure. It is our light,not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves,who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?Actually, who are you not to be?Your playing small doesnt serve the world. Theres nothingenlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feelinsecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as childrendo. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that iswithin us. Its not just in some of us, its in everyone. And aswe let our own light shine, we unconsciously give otherpeople permission to do the same. As we are liberated fromour own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. anger is a menifestation of a deeper issues…is based ON INSECURITY,LOW SELF-ESTEEM ,FRUSTRATIONS AND
To avoid criticism , do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
You are not just paid to work. You are paid to beuncomfortable – and to pursue projects that scare you.
You’ll get your game-changing ideas away from the office versus in the middle of work. Make time forsolitude. Creativity needs the space to present itself.
There is only one person who could ever make You happY, and that person is… You.
