What I'm reading to my Yogis this week, perfect for the run up to this crazy Christmas time 🎄🙈😉 Cherish Moments of Solitude:
The ability to be at peace with solitude can take a lifetime of cultivation.
Peaceful solitude is different from isolation, being forced to be alone.
It's different from forced seclusion -where we grasp frantically for some kind of connection, something to make us feel not alone, then finally sink fearfully and unwillingly into isolation.
On our adventures, we are called to face many fears. The universe won't let us hide from our fears, at least not for long. One of the fears we may be called to face is the fear of being alone.
We may need to face it, feel it, heal from it - or we will be grasping, settling for, surrounding ourselves with anything or anybody so we don't have to be alone. If we don't face it, solitude will become, instead, solitary confinement.
Cultivate moments of solitude. Learn to cherish your privacy, you're quiet time. Learn to be comfortable being alone with yourself.
The more content you can become in moments of solitude, the more joy and love you'll discover in times with others. Cultivate solitude.
It will help you cultivate love. ❤️
