The Art of Alone

A thought.

1984; spooky; deep

Solitude is often perceived as a state of loneliness, a state of being disconnected from the world. But in its purest form, solitude is a journey within, a chance to explore the depths of our own being and to find a sense of peace and understanding in the world around us.

In solitude, we are free to be our true selves, to let go of the masks we wear in the world and to connect with our deepest desires and fears. It is a time to reflect on our lives, to contemplate the world around us, and to find meaning in our experiences.

But solitude is not just a state of mind, it is a state of being. It is the space between our thoughts and our actions, the silence between our words and our deeds. In this space, we are able to see the world in a new light, to find a sense of clarity and purpose, and to connect in a way that is not possible in the chaos of today.

Solitude is a journey that we must all undertake at some point in our lives. It is a journey that requires courage, for it is in the quiet moments of reflection that we are most vulnerable. But it is also a journey that reaps plenty fruit, for it is in solitude that we find a sense of peace and understanding that we cannot find anywhere else. Only in solitude can we truly find ourselves for it is where we become our best company.

So embrace solitude, not as a state of loneliness, but as a journey within, a journey to find meaning in our world filled with clamour and commotion. And remember that, in the end, it isn't the journey itself that matters, but all the wisdom and understanding we manage to gather along the way. Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god (Aristotle), so make your choice...
