Rare is the man who can be truly alone.
And of course, ‘being truly alone’ does not have to do with people.
Aloneness is not the function of other people, aloneness is a particular mind.
And it is not that as if that mind does not recognise, or realise people. It does.
Do not forget, that aloneness does not exclude duality.
Aloneness does not exclude this world.
To be alone is to be fully of this world, and yet be alone, and then one has lived.
