Shaila Catherine: seclusion and solitude!

“We may search for a quiet place to meditate,
.
.
but true external solitude is not necessary,
.
.
and may not even exist.
.
.
I have come to understand solitude as an experience of relationship,
.
.
specifically our relationship to reality.
.
.
Lovers of solitude value this relationship and give it attention.
.
.
We devote time for meditation,
.
.
time to listen to silence,
.
.
time to breathe in the vastness of space that surrounds us,
.
.
time to make friends with ourselves.”

  1. I’ve noticed that finding a little time to feel as if I’m separate helps remind me that I’m actually never separate.

  2. Very insightful

    In this next breath, empty of thought we are perfect

    Or realistically we notice our perfection that always has been there

    It never changes our perfection

    If we do create the “I”, we waste 99% of waking life with distraction and conjecture, impermanent garbage.
