“Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.” — Rumi

Solitude is frequently described as a state of loneliness without meaning…however for those who are deeply aware of their intuitive feelings will tend to experience being alone with a sense of relatedness and harmony both within and outwardly…solitude then becomes an enjoyable activity . And for those who identify with socially developed rational thinking will tend to separate everything both within and outwardly….they will likely experience being alone with a feeling of separateness and loneliness….social conditioning needs a sense of belonging and an identification with acceptable social beliefs.

Our intuitive compass points in a direction that is uniquely appropriate for each person…when in solitude we can move spontaneously with its feelings and energy.
