Loneliness and Being Alone
I guess I have evolved. I used to think being alone meant I would be lonely. But that's not true. When I am alone now, I am perfectly whole. Whole instead of ragged with holes from self-doubt, self-involvement, self-judging. Whole is good. Empty ... that's the yang of the yin of Whole for me. Still working on that concept from the TaiChi pose of filling all my weight into the foot that is holding me up--leaving the other leg empty. I am ok if I use the Eastern view of empty. The western view of empty is ... grim.
