Aloneness is Blissful
Bliss in being alone
Aloneness is a flower, a lotus blooming in your heart.
Aloneness is positive, aloneness is health.
It is the joy of being yourself. It is the joy of having your own space.
Meditation means: bliss in being alone...
One is really alive when one has become capable of it, when there is no dependence any more on anybody, on any situation, on any condition. And because it is one's own, it can remain morning, evening, day, night, in youth or in old age, in health, in illness. In life, in death too, it can remain because it is not something that is happening to you from the outside.
It is something welling up in you.
It is your very nature...it is self-nature.
The Inner Journey
An inside journey is a journey towards absolute aloneness; you cannot take anybody there with you. You cannot share your center with anybody, not even with your beloved. It is not in the nature of things; nothing can be done about it. The moment you go in, all connections with the outside world are broken; all bridges are broken. In fact, the whole world disappears.
That's why the mystics have called the world illusory, not that it does not exist, but for the meditator, one who goes in, it is almost as if the world does not exist. The silence is so profound; no noise penetrates it. The aloneness is so deep that one needs guts. But out of that aloneness explodes bliss. Out of that aloneness - the experience of God. There is no other way; there has never been any and there is never going to be.
Celebrate aloneness, celebrate your pure space, and a great song will arise in your heart.
And it will be a song of awareness, it will be a song of meditation.
It will be a song of a lone bird calling because the heart is full and wants to call, because the cloud is full and wants to rain, because the flower is full and the petals open and the fragrance is released...unaddressed.
Let your aloneness become a dance.
