.....ALL HUMANS ARE FRIGHTENED OF THEIR OWN SOLITUDE............

 

YET ONLY IN SOLITUDE CAN WE LEARN TO KNOW OURSELVES,.......LEARN TO HANDLE OUR OWN ETERNITY OF ALONENESS........

                   ~~Han Suyin~~



BEING QUIET WITH OURSELVES .....LET'S THE INNER PERSON SURFACE....

IN SOLITUDE WE FIND SERENITY SECURELY NESTLED IN THE RECESSES OF OUR MIND.........

WE BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THAT ALL IS WELL......



IN SOLITUDE WE FIND OUR SANITY WHEN THE WORLD AROUNDS US SEEMS INSANE.




ONLY IN OUR QUIET TIMES CAN WE HEAR THE VOICE WITHIN GIVING US GUIDANCE AND DIRECTION SO WE ARE AT ONE WITH OUR DIVINE CREATOR.

LET'S ALL GIVE OURSELVES THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE ....... TODAY.

  3. Oooh I make sure to take my solitude for without it, I become cranky. I don't like having my mind crowded by too many people or tasks at any given time. I like a slow methodical pace to most things. I like this post. Tazzy

  11. Dearest Jo,
    What a sweet awakening to come to my computer this morning and see your comment...all these things of which you and I speak...solitude, patina of age..the world, especially the young world, just doesn't understand. I actually crave quiet to help me think both creatively and "logically", if you will, for my work. I love that I have a 45 minute drive to work so I can think. And as for that patina, I love what you said about shining it like a bright, new penny...ABSOLUTELY! Polishing by keeping our minds and bodies as fit as possible, busy and in quiet but ACTIVE mode...THANK YOU for your insights and I wish you a lovely new week!! Anita

  12. There is solitude... And there is alone-ness... Different, yes?

    The first, we can be grateful for.

    The second, we fear.

    Interesting...

  16. Well said. A long walk along the beach or just sitting and pondering can do much for peace and inner strength.

  17. hi jo :)
    i must confess i am frighten of my own solitude at times, and it appears more frightening at night. but you are right ... if only we can focus our energies positively during times of solitude, many doors to our mind and soul would open.
