loneliness

loneliness

The flower that I see you will never see. So we cannot share real flower. We can just pretend that we are sharing and that is so lonely. I can never share with you what I am experiencing. It is just so lonely. What I am experiencing only I can do it. Now if you are a buddhist, loneliness is dawn of wisdom, you are supposed to invest on this loneliness. If you are lonely, you are feeling awkward with this samsaric life. You can sense it’s not working. You can kind of feel that its all a little bit, what you call it, over promising, you know, sort of. So you can feel this. So this feeling awkward, feeling not belong to this, is actually a very important mental factor that a practitioner is supposed to invest.
