Loneliness - Solitude


"Loneliness is like sitting in an empty room
and being aware of the space around you.
It is a condition of separateness.

Solitude is becoming one with the space around you.
It is a condition of union.

Loneliness is small,
solitude is large.

Loneliness closes in around you;
solitude expands toward the infinite.

Loneliness has its roots in words,
in an internal conversation that nobody answers;
Solitude has its roots in the great silence of eternity."
