Spiritual Awakening and Aloneness by Maria Erving
Being alone is not the same as being lonely.
It’s a natural happening in the process of spiritual awakening and so there will be a time of adjusting yourself to the new, and if you’re feeling isolated or forced to be alone, see it as a blessing, because believe me it is.
If you truly are dedicated to know and live the Truth and nothing but the Truth, it will remove everything (everything!) from your life that is not true, and that may include some of your most cherished beliefs and even relationships from your life.
It will empty your life from all that is not true, and leave nothing undone – all you have learned will be unlearned, and you will be left naked.
On your own, but not ‘alone’-alone.
Embrace that, wherever you are, because there’s an undercurrent of flow going on that you may not understand yet.
Being dedicated to Truth means to embrace everything, not only the nice and comfortable parts of life (that’s really how the ego rolls, it’s always looking for a way out while our true nature embraces everything, that’s what true and mature spirituality is, it’s not about “feeling better”, but to sincerely allow yourself to experience everything); it means literally everything, and that includes the willingness to be completely alone.
It includes the willingness to look very closely at everything that is not true in our lives and have that removed either by our own choice, or by us kicking and screaming our way through it by the feeling of victim-hood.
But it will be removed, trust me on that one.
If you have a sincere wish to know the Truth and nothing but, it will be known to you what you need to let go of.
And if you’re already past that insight but are resenting and resisting your imposed aloneness then ask yourself if you really would go back if you could, knowing what you now know?
It’s impossible. Life has a hold on you, and it will not let you go. Spiritual awakening is about waking up from the false.
Simply trust it and be willing to be alone and use that time to really go deeply and sincerely within and see the blessing in your opportunity to not have anything or anyone distracting you.
You could have that attitude to it too. You could see the aloneness as a blessing and embrace it instead of seeking to be entertained by the world in all the ways there are, that’s how the ego distracts us from going within.
And that’s where our seemingly free will lies; our attitude towards the inevitable.
Your alone time is so important, so use it wisely – dedicate it to know Truth fully, inquire within sincerely and deeply with all your heart and give yourself fully to it.
You’re freedom lies in the surrendering to what is, whatever it is.
Some people will leave you and some won’t, just know that whoever leaves, is meant to leave, and that all is in absolutely perfect order. Embrace being alone if that is what Life calls you to do, it will not be forever.
Pay full attention to your soul in this time of aloneness.
