Am I really alone?

Salma:
That´s what I asked myself this morning. Perhaps I was really wanting to ask the question “Am I really lonely?”…The answer was a ‘knowing’ kind of answer – No, I am not at all alone. Just that knowingness. My perception changed. It was comforting..

Me:
We are alone till the moment we no longer are…

“Aloneness” hides the most essential truth from us. We couldn´t know what is beyond loneliness, unless we willingly delve into its huge mystery. The most difficult part is that Aloneness – Separation – is very real, but on the other hand, once you´re thru – given that you manage to come out of it – you realize it never existed…

So, the question is again:

How do you deal with something which is very, very concrete, but at the same time, nonexistent…?
