Return to Nature

Send the crowds away, go up to the mountains and silently commune with trees and flowers, animals and birds, with the sea and sky and stars.  It is a spiritual exercise to gaze at these things around you...hopefully the words will drop, the concepts will drop and you will see, you will make contact with reality.  That is the cure for loneliness.

There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle. ~ Deepak Chopra, M.D.

Loneliness is not cured by human company. Loneliness is cured by contact with reality...

dropping ones illusions, making contact with the real.  You can only know what aloneness is when you drop your clinging, when you drop your dependency.  When your illusions drop, you are in touch with reality at last and you will never again be lonely, never again...

The Ego's M.O.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up. ~ Deepak Chopra, M.D.

Stillness Speaks

“A great silent space holds all of nature in its embrace. It also holds you. When you become aware of silence, immediately there is a state of inner alertness. You are present. You have stepped out of years of collective human conditioning.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle

Someone once said....

The three most difficult things for a human being are not physical feats or intellectual achievements.  They are, first, returning love for hate; second, including the excluded; third, admitting that you are wrong.

“It is necessary ... for a man to go away by himself ... to sit on a rock ... and ask, 'Who am I, where have I been, and where am I going?” ― Carl Sandburg

Relationship Drama

When relatively insignificant disagreements trigger arguments, emotional pain, at the root of such experiences lie the basic ego patterns:  the need to be right and for someone else to be wrong; that is to say, identification with mental positions.  There is also the ego's need to be periodically in conflict with something or someone in order to strengthen its sense of separation between "me" and the "other" without which it cannot survive. ~  Eckhart Tolle
