Man’s worst nightmare — -aloneness
The feeling of being mentally incarcerated is the ultimate punishment
Even in the comfort of one’s home
Even if there is a loving partner
Even when peace reigns in the country
Compounded by the sight of a slight drizzle
Compounded by a slow, sad song
Compounded by the cover of the impending darkness
Aloneness is the most bitter pill to swallow
Aloneness is more painful than a deep wound
Aloneness is man’s worst enemy
One wants to break free but how?
Walk, read, write, exercise, socialize, laugh sing, dance, work, play, rest, sleep, learn, observe, keep a pet, pray…..do them!
Suddenly, the alone feeling fades away like the fleeting cloud that passes
Oh, it is just a feeling, one of the gamuts of emotions that inhabit the human being…nothing more
One has a myriad of choices when feeling alone
With decisive and purposeful action, aloneness is substituted with calm, peace, gratitude, laughter, awareness, enlightenment, energy, and even joy…
One must fight it with determination, grit, and realization
It is only a feeling after all, not insurmountable
Things begin to lighten up and another wondrous moment beckons.
