How lonely are you?

There is no loneliness in loneliness.
The universe is there and waiting for you,
while in company it is closed up for you,
as friends and lovers must have all your main attention.
In order to have concentration for your meditation
and creation, you must needs be alone,
and in that loneliness you then will find the company
of all the world, but only spiritually, never physically,
which could be felt the more releasing and relaxing
if not even as some sort of freedom and important liberation.
This is individual, of course, not everyone was born for loneliness,
and not everyone has known the vital urge for loneliness,
while some are better off alone
especially with their creative freedom,
if that is what they were made for.
