     The notion of feeling alone unknowingly suggests a consciousness deficit. We are never alone, since the universe in its vastness provides everything. It is therefore mistaken to feel alone. There is nature in all its bounty, our thoughts can take us to new dimensions, awareness revels what initially was thought not to be present, and when we see with new eyes, we realise we could never be alone, since spiritual  insight  reveals new worlds an new experiences to garner. I feel the intimacy of my surroundings, when I tend to our garden. I touch the trees, and the wind touches me by blowing on my body. When my dogs bark, I hear songs. The tweet of the birds wakes me from unwanted thoughts. The weight of my aloneness is put down when I change my way of thinking, interpret experiences in a new way, and open myself in an unjudgmental way to receive the gifts the yet unknown brings.
