We often do not like just being with ourselves

Sometimes in our lives we have to let go of things which once seemed important in order to allow the space to be filled with new things. However, this requires courage, and we often avoid it by preferring to be occupied, to fill up empty space and time.

Emptiness is the pregnant void out of which all creation springs.

But many of us fear emptiness.

We prefer to remain…surrounded by things…which we imagine are subject to our control.

Wayne Muller

  1. The idea of being with yourself can be scary because it is the doorstep of loneliness. However taking the time to understand who you are is essential to your own personal growth. Great quick read.
