    With so many people on earth and such easy access to communication, why are people so lonely today?

    Technology makes it so easy to communicate these days, but people say that they are lonely.  Loneliness seems to be on the rise.    With so many people, you should find at least one to say something to, to feel less lonely, but that does not seem to be the case. Why are people lonely these days?

    You are right that technology makes it easier to communicate with others all around the world but loneliness is an increasing issue displayed in so many people using online dating agencies etc. One problem is social media sites like Facebook show other people out leading exciting and fun lives, they may have 1000 friends or more etc. Seeing this makes other more introverted people feel inadequate, envious and lonelier than ever.

    I'm not sure at all but if there loneliness is increasing then my gut guess would be that it's because the world is getting bigger, and I'm getting smaller. At least that's how I feel sometimes.

    You speak of access to communication. Access to Peace is also a form of Communication. Without equipoise, serenity or equilibrium; without the flow of sweetness in my Being, I will not be happy. How can I find this, when my mind is jumping like a monkey bitten by a scorpion?

    How do I silence this restless mind? for me it is a better question. We want to go to the root cause and then come out, not start from the outside. The dirt would still be on the inside.

    People are lonely because the Soul is in Isolation from its true Source. It is on its way back, all right, but a few are doing this unconsciously, and are not aware of their divine nature. This once pristine Carot, is covered in shadows. All things mundane are ephemeral and a product of the inner Divinity which is Man or God. Peace.

    There is less face to face in person communication these days.
    Secondly loneliness has more to do with not feeling (understood) or (connected) to others in a way that is rewarding to that individual.
    There are many people in marriages who feel (lonely). It's also not unheard of for someone to be at a party or in a crowded room and yet (feel) alone. I've also witnessed couples at dinner where both are texting and checking emails on their phones.
    Even when people are together physically they aren't mentally.
