Lonely paths

Nobody can tell you if what you're doing is good, meaningful or worthwhile. The more compelling the path, the more lonely it is.

isn't this the truth...I think everyone seems to have their own perception of reality also and for this reason the path can be lonely..but, whenever I felt lonely (I am talking of a loneliness in mind not in having mankind/friends around) this was sometimes the more fruitful time for my mind, thughts,communication with spirit and the desire was higher..hopefully, as time passes by like attracts like, and one begins to meet individuals with similar thughts, beliefs, etc..but, I think it is almost a part of the deal to go through the lonely part..

Yes. I think that the perception of god/the holy spirit/our higher self, is a personal thing, since you can't point them out to a friend. It's somehting you have to trust in yourself.

yes, absoulutely true..and sometimes trusting your own self and not having doubt is the hardest thing to do..but, so very important to our being..

Well said.

And in the advanced stages one also has to try and differentiate between one's ego self and one's Higher Self.
