The great omission in life is solitude; not loneliness, for this is an alienation that thrives most in the midst of crowds, but that zone of time and space free from outside pressure which is the incubator of the spirit. — Marya Mannes
I’ve been guided to spend time on my own – alone. To rest more. To just BE.
To do this I need to get in touch with myself to hear, listen and nurture my inner wisdom and dreams – none of which is possible when I’m actively focusing on the outer world or tending to others.
Solitude is considered to be the soul’s holiday, an opportunity to stop doing for others and delight ourselves instead. In Solitude I see more clearly what’s going on in my life.
If you’ve been feeling this way as well, find a place where you can be alone for a while. I enjoy waking up early, holding a warm cup of tea or coffee in my hand and looking out my backyard. I noticed I’m more creative when I’m alone. The feeling of shutting off outside channels and be at one with myself is freeing.
When I give this time alone, I discover a new level of energy I didn’t know I had. I also find the strength to manage challenges and enjoy the rest of each day.
When we’re in solitude and we find the peace we’ve been yearning for, and we know everything is being taken care of, we discover the joy of BEingness. That is the sweet spot we’re seeking – the knowingness that we are at the right place, at the right time, in our divine perfection.
Have a great weekend!
