a sense of true belonging...

“The mystic Thomas a Kempis said that when you go out into the world, 
you return having lost some of yourself. Until you learn 
to inhabit your alone-ness, the lonely distraction and noise of society 
will seduce you into false belonging, with which you will only become empty and weary. 
 When you face your alone-ness, something begins to happen. 
Gradually, the sense of bleakness changes into a sense of true belonging.”
~John O'Donohue, 
poet, priest, intuitive mystic
