“Loneliness means that in that state of consciousness, you see everybody as You.” Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan said in the lecture he delivered in 1987, “ You do not know who you are. You do not know you are unique. You are One. The oneness in you, you have not found. That's why people take everything away from you. That's why you want socializing, and society, and relations. How bizarre and berserk these relationships are. You all want it, because the one relationship you needed with the One has not been established. I'm not saying that you should not relate to people and be nice to them and serve them and play with them. Loneliness means that in that state of consciousness, you see everybody as You. That oneness, that loneliness, is a state of consciousness when you do not see anyone other than you. One focus, one picture, one meditation, one consciousness, one feeling, one emotion.”
I have embraced being alone over the past two months here in Bali. In turn, I have grown spiritually, mentally and emotionally. It wasn’t that I didn’t need other people in my life, it was simply the fact that I needed to be alone to develop my own beliefs and heal. Today, I’m getting closer to being ready to pick up my Anchor and move forward in life. I had all of these plans when I moved to Bali, but God called me into his service to help my friend that had a stoke. Through that service of healing and providing care I learned a great deal about myself. God has a way of turning tragedy into blessings.
Today I am alone, but I am no longer lonely. Loneliness truly comes from not loving yourself. Today, I have been delivered from the chains of addiction that had inhibited me for 17 years. I have grown to love myself mind, body and soul.
I’m immensely thankful to God for providing me this opportunity and awareness in my life. I’m also thankful to my family and my boyfriend for giving me the space I needed to grow and heal. Today, I’m beautiful inside and out. I’m ready to take on the world, build healthy relationships and share the gift of healing that God has given me.
Yogi Bhajan said, “The purpose of life is to reach a state of consciousness where there is no peer group, period. Only then can you become a giver. Before that you can't give anybody anything; you are in a business of give and take. But when you give and give and give, and for the sake of giving you live, then you become Ik - One. Then you have to have no peer group. One is very lonely. It has its own beginning; it has its own end and its own process. You're all afraid to become lonely. You do not know what to do with your loneliness, because you do not know how to give. Give your loneliness—that oneness, that ecstasy, that state of higher consciousness—then nobody can match you, nobody can reach you. Then all you become [is] heaven, heaven becomes you.”
My prayer for you today is that you will seek time alone. In that aloneness you will find endless spiritual growth. You are never alone, you always have God by your side.

Give yourself one of the most valuable gifts: Me time! Such a great gift and yet you struggle with it. It seems there is always so much to do and never enough time. To handle time well, it is important to use the short, but tricky word ‘no’ on a regular basis. Sometimes that means hard choices and discipline, but you gain the world from it. No matter how sociable you are, it is very healthy to also be by yourself once in awhile. In the end, going through life without moments of seclusion is exhausting. to be alone has nothing to do with loneliness. When you feel lonely, this often comes through a sense of incompleteness, something is missing and there is a disconnect. On the other hand, enjoying time alone creates space, you can charge yourself up and feel whole from the inside out. You are connecting with yourself. this sounds paradoxical, but when you withdraw every now and then to have some personal space, your capacity to connect with others will increase enormously.
