Beginning to Experience Our Nature Closer to What It Really Is

Aloneness. That’s true. So as you go through that, as you recognize the experiencer, and your own experiencer recognizes there’s no need to share it, you feel the aloneness. The aloneness is a real thing here, and it’s a transition. Alone doesn’t mean that you’re lonely; you’re just accepting an existential situation. The desire to share and the feeling of aloneness both reflect the truth that you are not that separate experiencer, but they are interpreted through its filter.
