We strive to devoid our lives of silence
to avoid listening to our own thoughts
ignorant to the fact that
one can never be at peace without
It is written
“Blessed are those who do not fear solitude,
who are not afraid of their own company,
who are not always desperately looking for something to do,
something to amuse themselves with,
something to JUDGE.
If you are never alone, you cannot know yourself.
And if you do not know yourself,
you will begin to fear the void.
But the void does not exist.
A vast world lies hidden in our soul,
waiting to be discovered.
There it is,
with all its strength intact,
but it is so new and so powerful
that we are afraid to acknowledge its existence.”
