…و خلوتی که به‌سنگینی ، چون پیری عصاکش , از دهلیزِ سکوت می‌گذرد

By Edvard Munch

We can cultivate an inner solitude and silence that sets us free
from loneliness and fear.  Loneliness is inner emptiness.  Solitude
is inner fulfillment.  Solitude is not first a place but a state of mind
and heart.  There is a solitude of heart that can be maintained at
all times.  Crowds or the lack of them have little to do with this inward
attentiveness.  It is quite possible to be a desert hermit and never experience
solitude.  But if we possess inward solitude we will not fear being alone, for
we know that we are not alone.  Neither do we fear being with others, for they
do not control us.  In the midst of noise and confusion
we are settled into a deep inner silence.
