I miss the Solitude

I really miss the solitude i used to get in my previous job. The solitude which gave me time to know myself.

There were some great places which had become part of my life. They gave me the time to reunite with myself. When I say, i was alone. It was not because the others threw me to it, but something which i wanted. I made sure that everyday of mine will have few minutes of solitude in any of these places- Near the pool, Near the fish pond or outside building 26.

When I was there, it was just me and me. There was no one to ask me why i sat there or no one to disturb me. It was a feeling of being alone in a crowd with a difference that is with no noise.

Now in this new place I miss these places. I need to reinvent and get me a place which will bring back me in myself.

As they say : "Loneliness is not the same as being alone. Everyone has times when they are alone through circumstances or choice. Being alone can be experienced as positive, pleasurable, and emotionally refreshing if it is under the individuals control. Solitude is the state of being alone and secluded from other people, and often implies having made a conscious choice to be alone. Loneliness is therefore unwilling solitude."

I am now craving for it.

you dont need a calm place for solitude. why dont u just take a walk on the road that will connect to the raheja arcade rd? it will take u 15-20 mins to do that and its safe enuf.

Mediation teaches us to involve in ourselves even in the most busiest environment.
If u consciously want to be alone... concentrate hard to keep ur thoughts directed to one point... u will get hours of loneliness felt in a single minute!

Just not writing it for commenting... i am doing it myself... so wud like to thrust in the fact tht this works.
