When you are alone you are not alone,
you are simply lonely -
and there is a tremendous difference
between loneliness and aloneness.
When you are lonely you are thinking of the other,
you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state.
You are feeling that it would have been
better if the other were there -
your friend, your wife, your mother,
your beloved, your husband.
It would have been good if the other
were there, but the other is not.
Loneliness is absence of the other.
Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
Aloneness is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence
that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
- Osho

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
- Calvin Coolidge

Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you.
Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning.

because scriptures are full of answers.
And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder.
- Osho

How can you learn truth until you first empty your cup?"
