This piece was posted on our MeWe Group Page, and I asked if we could publish it here because so many of us can relate to the feeling…

This writing was inspired whilst sitting in the peace, quiet and dark; unable to sleep and somewhat disturbed at thinking over some things that I’m hearing and reading. These words came into my awareness…
I understand loneliness; whilst being in a crowded room.
The distance that is felt, whilst surrounded by those dancing to the manipulated tune.
We may be together; yet we stand very far apart.
For most follow the hypnotic piper, whilst I follow the yearnings of my heart.
I stand alone, because I can’t yet make you understand things in exactly the same way that I do. But then, awakening to the truth must come from the being that resides within you.
I cannot stand and criticise you; because I, too, was once there.
I cannot call you stupid or ignorant because hitherto, of the truth you are still unaware.
We all must take the journey. Each one of us at some point must make a start.
No other can sit in judgement of another or even force their awakening to start.
For spirituality is not demonstrated by intellect, by having special powers or by what one knows more than another. Spirituality is measured by acknowledging everyone as my sister and my brother.
I understand loneliness, because in this world I am now awake, whilst surrounded by so many who have their own journey still to take.
I can only plant a seed, or offer gentle guidance as I see it. You then start to wake from your slumber to face the eternal reality.
An understanding of loneliness comes from how much we’ve grown spiritually. Eventually, we come to understand our own divinity, the truth, and that we were never, ever truly left alone.
