What is loneliness? Is it being afraid of being alone, or being afraid of being stuck with yourself? We must be born alone, and die alone. When you are alone, it kind of reminds you of the reality you must face. There is no comfort and nothing to hold onto, unless perhaps you are watching TV. You realize that even though your life may be intertwined with other beings, and you are part of the system of interconnectedness that makes up nature, you still have your own individual destiny to bear. No one can die with you, or suffer with you. They may be near you experiencing it, but you cannot be one with any one else's experience. No one experiences exactly what you experience. And when you die, you are going absolutely alone into the unknown. Sometimes at night, when you were a little kid, for comfort you went to your parents bedroom when you were afraid . Imagine what death will be like, everything you know is ripped away from you into oblivion, it no longer exists. There is no one to come with you, or tell you what it is like unless you are religious. You must discover everything for yourself.
