it is merely the absence of light.

Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.

you are simply lonely -
and there is a tremendous difference
between loneliness and aloneness.

you are missing the other.

your beloved, your husband.

were there, but the other is not.
Loneliness is absence of the other.

Aloneness is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence
that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
