It’s Okay to be Alone

For many of us, it can be tempting to constantly seek out connections with others, to be surrounded by people and to be constantly busy with social interactions. But sometimes, it is in the moments of isolation and separation that we can truly connect with ourselves and find a deeper sense of peace and fulfillment.

Picture yourself like a wise sage on the top of a mountain, surrounded by the beauty and serenity of nature.

The difficulty in accessing the wisdom and guidance of this healer is part of their value, and only those who are truly seeking and ready can make the journey to reach them.

The sage is not interested in catering to the needs of just about anyone that's not fulfilling and satisfying for them.

They are content to spend their days in peaceful solitude, drinking tea and looking out at the world.

The fear of not connecting with anyone can drive us to be open to just about any connection, to be busy constantly trying to prove our worthiness to others and to seek out any form of social interaction.

But the sage knows that true connection comes from being discerning and patient, from waiting for the right people to come along and from being open to deep and meaningful connections.

The people who see you, who can see your wisdom and value. These are the people you can go distances with.
