There is no such thing as living alone, for all living is relationship; but to live without direct relationship demands high intelligence, a swifter and greater awareness for self-discovery. A "lone" existence, without this keen and flowing awareness, strengthens the already dominant tendencies, thus causing unbalance, distortion. It is now that one has to become aware of the set and peculiar habits of thought-feeling which come with age, and by understanding them make away with them. Inward riches alone bring peace and joy.
Freedom from Fear
Is it possible for the mind to empty itself totally of fear? Fear of any kind breeds illusion. Where there is fear there is obviously no freedom, and without freedom there is no love at all. And most of us have some form of fear; fear of darkness, fear of physical pain, fear of public opinion and so on.
So, what is important is to be aware of the whole process of oneself, to observe, to learn about your fear, and not ask how to get rid of it. When you merely want to get rid of fear, you will find ways and means of escaping from it, and so there can never be freedom from fear.
