"That doesn't look right, you're all by yourself." I went to Juno beach this morning before Sarah Powers' Insight yoga workshop & someone walked by me and said that. I suppose some people are uncomfortable with the idea of being alone, perhaps more so alone with their own thoughts. As I sat on the beach, I felt content, with a deep sense of inner peace. In the workshop we explored self-inquiry, cultivating mindfulness and compassion, even within ourselves to ease suffering. Solitude is a wonderful teacher, providing great insight into our very nature, and understanding what we might cling to or crave thinking it will provide happiness.
I smiled at that man and told him it was alright. He laughed in agreement & walked away. Yes, you can be in places of aloneness and not be lonely. Give yourself compassion and time to explore your very nature. The greatest journey you'll ever take is the journey inward. 🙏🏻💕 Peace. .
