“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.”
poet, priest, intuitive mystic
