Loneliness with dignity.

Postby winter » Mon Jan 23, 2006 1:50 am

All suffering which is accepted and received with dignity eventuates in deepened sensitivity. One cannot be sensitive without knowing loneliness. To see is to be lonely - to hear, feel , touch - every vital solitary experience of the senses is a lonely one. Anyone who senses with a wide range of delicate feelings and meanings experiences loneliness. To be open to life in an authentic sense is to be lonely, for in such openness one hears and feels and senses beyond the ordinary. Through loneliness we are refined and sensitized and open to life's lofty ideals and influences. We are enabled to grow in awareness, in understanding, in aesthetic capabilities, in human relations. Clarke Moustakas.

Thank you for sharing this quote. I'm going through a time of loneliness and hoping it will be of value. I've been getting the feeling that good things are awakening. I remember times like this years ago that resulted in growth.
