At one time or another in our life we each experience that terrible feeling of loneliness. In this empty and dark space, people no longer know where they are or where they are going.

Jesus himself was travelling through this dark wilderness when he exclaimed, ‘My God, why have You abandoned me?’ Sooner or later, all human beings, even the greatest initiates, go through this indescribable loneliness. Why? Because it is a necessary experience in order to understand what is essential.

It is when we feel alone and abandoned that we understand the truths of the soul and spirit, not when we are happy, satisfied, and surrounded by friends.
In reality, no one is ever abandoned in the true sense of the word. Even when we have to pass through the most terrible ordeals, each one of us is surrounded by spirits and beings speaking to us and watching over us.

Loneliness does not exist. It is only a passing state of consciousness, and the only way to move through it as quickly as possible is to soar towards the Being who sustains all creation.
