LONELINESS RESULTS WHEN WE LACK SELF-KNOWLEDGE
In essence, when we do not know our own self comprehensively, then question pops up, how can we know about somebody else? We all are having body, mind and soul (Spirit). Our body and mind could be trained to work in tandem/as a cohesive unit But our soul, which according to Lord Krishna in Bhagwad Gita ‘is a very tiny fragmental portion of Him is a basis of our consciousness. A soulless body is a lifeless body. We become self-aware when we know the difference between soul and the matter. All this dawns when we are self-aware – consciously know what we actually are and what we are not besides what our purpose or function is on this planet.
A person who is ignorant about what we actually are and what we are not. Such a person becomes ill-informed in many ways. For raising our awareness and remove the darkness of ignorance, we have to have total control over our mind. Controlling mind means acquiring equanimity both in happy and sad occasions i.e. to attain balance in life – a bridge which keeps us protected from bad omens or fluctuations of good and bad tidings. Contrarily, when our mind goes out of kilter, rather when we become prisoners of mind and senses, then, we get disconnected from our own self and in the process become lonely even in the company of friends and other people around.
In essence, being lonely means not being self-conscious or in other words being ignorant about our own self to which Bhagwad Gita proclaims; ‘sever the ignorant doubt in your heart with the sword of self-knowledge as a consequence of which we shall gain self-realization thereby connecting with the Higher Soul (Super Soul) intuitively speaking. This way, differences just melt away since we establish with our Soul which is not apart from the Super Soul.
There are people who lack self-knowledge feel lonely anywhere they put their steps and become cynic and pessimists thus earn for themselves physical and mental health related problems.
LONELINESS HAPPENS WHEN WE LACK SELF– KNOWLEDGE
Loneliness is not merely
Saying I am alone
Since everybody has come alone to this earth so beautiful
But it is a feeling
That you are not connected
Or loved by the people around.
There may be enormous number of people around you
In variety of relationship, friends in plenty
Yet feeling of hurt comes in the heart
That are still lonely.
The main cause of disconnect with our own kith and kin
Happens when we are not in touch with our own selves
Meaning even in the company of so many people around
You may be all alone still.
Although we devote so much time making friends in variety of forums
Yet fail to explore the inner recesses of own selves
Thus become self-aware
Which gives a huge tinge of aloofness?
We ought to be aware
That the commonality in all of us is the soul in us
When we connect within
We are connected with everybody around
Thus doing so we transform our relationship
With others based on love
With the centre at the core of our heart.
If our heart is empty
But when we dig deeper
And connect with our spirit
We are able to connect
With the foundation of love
That lies dormant there
Which thence flows into every aspect of our lives
Then everything that we experience
Is full of connectivity with everybody around
Which is the fountain head of the happiness
We may fail to have exchanges of love,
Because our own hearts are empty
But when we dig still deeper in serenity
We not merely connect with our own selves
But also establish connectivity
With our own Creator – the Super Soul
A Soul to Super Soul connectivity!.
