  1. Hi Ram,
    Yup, Great thought indeed! If we remind ourselves that there is (some) one who lives in a strong fort built inside, we could naturally feel the sensation of our existence..even in the pain ! 🙂

    • Hi Amrita,

      We should not only feel the sensation of our existence, we should embrace it! If we’re always living from the perspective of that which is experiencing us have the experiences, then we will be connecting to our true self. And when that happens, loneliness isn’t possible. 🙂

    • Hi Jeannette,

      I think it’s about embracing who we are instead of looking outside of ourselves for validation (including validation of our existence). When we’re physically alone with ourselves, we’re not really alone at all (after all, who’s experiencing us experience being alone?).

      I found that when I focused on developing a relationship with myself — when I focused on becoming best friends with the person who I will spend the rest of my life with — that’s when I started to experience happiness (and as a result, was more able to share that with others around me).

      Living alone inside implies that we haven’t discovered who we are; we haven’t embraced ourselves. But when we take the time (no matter how long it may take or how difficult and challenge it may be) to discover who we are and then learn to love that, we spend the rest of our life living with our best friend. 🙂

  2. What head Jeannette? If you “look” for it you will find it missing and in absence is the whole universe. Not only are you not alone but you are everything – yes?

    • Absolutely! That’s exactly what I was getting at. 🙂 We need to recognize that we are our own best friend and then embrace that relationship.
