Quote Me

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

Whenever I feel lonely I turn to OSHO. Mostly I read his books. They give me a solution to all my problems , peace and calmness. I love one of his quote immensely.

 Loneliness is a negative state of mind. Aloneness is positive, notwithstanding what the dictionaries say. In dictionaries, loneliness and aloneness are synonymous — they are synonyms; in life they are not. Loneliness is a state of mind when you are constantly missing the other, aloneness is the state of mind when you are constantly delighted in yourself. Loneliness is miserable, aloneness is blissful. Loneliness is always worried, missing something, hankering for something, desiring for something; aloneness is a deep fulfillment, not going out, tremendously content, happy, celebrating. In loneliness you are off center, in aloneness you are centered and rooted. Aloneness is beautiful. It has an elegance around it, a grace, a climate of tremendous satisfaction. Loneliness is; beggarly; all around it there is begging and nothing else. It has no grace around it. In fact it is ugly. Loneliness is a dependence, aloneness is SHEER independence. One feels as if one is one’s whole world, one’s whole existence.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. A great quote by OSHO. He’s a favorite I enjoy reading.
    There is, for me, a difference between being alone and being lonely.
    When one is alone there is time to introspect and discover new things
    about ourselves. Being lonely means we rely on others to complete us.
    Very nice post, Indira.
    Namaste,
    Isadora 🙏🏻
