Solitude is not the absence of love

Pagi ini membuka kicauan di linimasa twitter dan menemukan link dari Paulo Coelho, penulis dan pemikir favorit saya yang berjudul “Solitude is not the absence of love”. Saya baca dan sangat mengena. 
Sesuai dengan postingan saya sebelumnya tentang jeda di .
Tulisannya PC cerdas sekali mengungkapkan tentang jeda, dan kepenuhan diri yang bermakna. Kali ini saya ingin mengutip tulisannya di sini, untuk bisa kalian bacai. Semoga bermanfaat !
Selamat merayakan hidup penuh makna :

Solitude is not the absence of Love

Without solitude, Love will not stay long by your side.

Because Love needs to rest as well, so that it can journey through the heavens and reveal itself in other forms.

Without solitude, no plant or animal can survive, no soil can remain productive for any length of time, no child can learn about life, no artist can create, no work can grow and be transformed.

Solitude is not the absence of Love, but its complement.
 Solitude is not the absence of company, but the moment when our soul is free to speak to us and help us decide what to do with our life.

Therefore, blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.

If you are never alone, you cannot know yourself.
 And if you do not know yourself, you will begin to fear the void.

But the void does not exist. A vast world lies hidden in our soul, waiting to be discovered. There it is, with all its strength intact, but it is so new and so powerful that we are afraid to acknowledge its existence.

Just as Love is the divine condition, so solitude is the human condition. And for those who understand the miracle of life, those two states peacefully coexist.
