Aloneness

Rumi Peotry
Translations by Shahram Shiva

(From the book, 
Rumi, Thief of Sleep)

This aloneness is worth more than a thousand lives.
This freedom is worth more than all the lands on earth.
To be one with the truth for just a moment,
Is worth more than the world and life itself.

Osho on Aloneness and Loneliness

The aloneness is total and complete. Not loneliness but aloneness. Loneliness is always concerned with others; aloneness is concerned with oneself.
Your aloneness is your essential being. Only pure aloneness gives you a clean sanity, it is so intrinsic, nobody can enter into your aloneness. You don’t need the other; the depence on the other is no more there, you are enough unto yourself.
You can be in the crowd and absolutely alone, but you may be alone and not alone at all.
Aloneness is also one of the fundamental experiences as you enter silence. In silence there is nobody else, you are simply alone. The deeper your silence will be, thoughts will be gone, emotions will be gone, sentiments will be gone — just pure being, a flame of light, burning alone.

May I ask, how do you feel when you’re alone?
What I say, loneliness either gives you a moment of inner piece or a torture of missing something/someone, unlike aloneness.
Aloneness means you are not alone. YOU are there, it is your presence, overflowing presence; you meet yourself, you don’t miss the other and no need for anybody. When you meet yourself  HE is always there with you.

  3. Assalaamu’alaikum wr.wb, sahabatku BintangZohra yang baik…

    Hadir untuk menyapa bagi terakhir kalinya sebelum mengundur diri dari keindahan persahabatan di maya. Saya sangat menghargai segala sapaan dan silaturahmi selama kita bersama.

    Kita hanya bertemu lewat catatan di poskad kenangan. Hanya memandang kaburan wajah di potret khayalan. Hanya mengetik huruf-huruf di tinta minda. Maafkan saya lahir dan batin jika…. pada tutur kata yang sesekali mencalar hati dalam penulisan dan pendapat diberi.

    Semoga Allah selalu memberkati persahabatan yang terjalin baik ini. Sebuah KENANGAN TERINDAH akan menyusul dalam diari kehidupan kita sebagai satu ikatan yang tidak bisa terlerai, andainya pertemuan itu bukan lagi milik kita. Doakan saya dalam kehidupan ini di dunia dan akhirat. Aamiin.

    Salam mesra penuh ukhuwwah berpanjangan hingga ke akhirat dari saya Siti Fatimah Ahmad, Sarikei, Sarawak.

    • Mualaikum Salam wr wb, teman yang di seberang Laut Cina Selatan.

      Walaupun Fatimah mengundukan diri dari wordpress ini, saya berharap agar perhubungan kita tidak putus di sini dan semoga kita dapat berhubung lagi InsyAllah, jika ada kelapangan dan peluang.

      Terima Kasih kerena mengirimkan khabar ini kepada saya.
