Alone and yet not alone!


I am not alone

I am not alone
When I am walking at dawn
For I have the company
Of a waking sun.

I am not alone
When I am walking at dusk
For I witness the dance of heavenly lights.

For Twilights hold a special meaning
In the witnessing
Of transitions in transcendence.
Of day to night
And night to day…

In this world
You are not alone
In the dark of the night
With twinkling stars to show you the way.

You are only alone
When even in midst of the many
Your heart seeks a little
Respite from company!

A safe space to witness
Your emerging thoughts
A zone to turn into
A tranquil place to been in

To sense a balance
With your thoughtful self
Amidst the scurry hurry
Of life and living.

Often ‘ alone’ is equated with loneliness. Alone may also mean simply being a witness to, by and with your self. It may arise from a need to explore to discover the self as much as the world in mindful introspection and contemplation. Every now and then a little time spent quietly with your self can truly help expand and regain the much needed equanimity to handle the worldly issues.

Meditations are a positive wonderful way to recharge our system.

Do you like to find time to be alone

With your thoughts and nothing else?

Do share

  2. Yes, being alone – in nature, with a candle, under the stars – the silence of the soul sings. Your writing is so beautiful – taking us all there. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  3. Absolutely. I cherish my solitude with nature. To me it is cathartic!

  4. Wonderful words and pictures, thanks for sharing!… I think “alone” is a word used in the general sense… while I am not a “recluse”, neither am I eager to venture out into society… πŸ™‚ and I do meditation every day and cherish that time “alone”.. πŸ™‚
