We are all so much together, but we are dying of loneliness. ~ Albert Schweitzer

darkness-despair-loneliness

You would think in this super-connected world we live in no one would feel lonely. Communication is literally instantaneous, even across thousands of miles. And yet there is an epidemic of loneliness plaguing so many people all across the globe.

One of our readers wrote me recently. With her permission, I want to share with you part of her letter:

I’ve been thinking of our last conversation with Spirit and how you told me I already know everything.

More things have come to me that I’m already certain of. I can’t really tell anybody because he/she won’t understand or believe me. This leads to a feeling of being separate, which I know we are not.

How does one cope with the intellectual understanding that we are never alone, we are one, but that it can be lonely here?

Spirit

While “intellectual understanding” has its purpose, it is not the right tool to help you understand loneliness. Your mind (or intellect) is limited. Its foundation is the beliefs you hold, or the faith you carry.

Again, belief and faith serve a purpose. But they are not the tools you need to deal with feelings of separation and loneliness.

Knowing and certainty are the tools you need to deal with the seeming separation, the loneliness—or any other challenges your physical world hands you.

Of course, this requires a strong spiritual foundation. It requires a deep knowing and unwavering certainty that it is impossible for you to be truly separate or alone. You are never separate, never alone.

God is your Source (capital “S”). You came from God and have never truly left Him/Her. It only seems you have. That’s part of the “package” you agreed to when you incarnated.

But now it’s time for all of you on a determined spiritual path (that’s you if you’re reading this) to acknowledge who you are (God in human form) and why you’re here (to help others know they are also God in human form).

We are not denying or rejecting that you can sometimes feel alone, separate, lonely. Your modern world and your ego certainly do all in their power to encourage those feelings. But just know it’s all an illusion.

The remedy for all this? Do whatever it takes to nurture yourselves in every way, on every level—physical, mental, emotional and, above all, spiritual.

Choose whatever ways feel right and good for you—not for anyone else, just you.

We’ve said this many times before, but quiet time spent alone and in solitude is powerful. Meditation is one way. Being among animals is another. Being in nature is yet another.

As you nurture yourselves with these spiritual tools, you will find a deep abiding sense of peace and quiet within. The peace and quiet has always been there. But after childhood, most humans have forgotten all about it.

That peace, that quiet within is your link with God, with the divine. It is God—you are God.

When you know that fact of life, when you are certain of it, you will also know it is impossible for you to ever be alone, separate or lonely.
