The Gift of Aloneness

I am your fear of abandonment; I have come to mask your deeper feelings

of sadness and emptiness.

I have come to show you the folly of seeking security in others.


The only power that I have is that which you have given me.

Beyond me lies the power of your Aloneness.

I am a passageway that leads you into the awareness of who you… and you alone…really are.

As you journey into me you will someday

reach the place where you will meet yourself.

And when you know who you are, you will abandon your fear.


RB (1988)
