Long before I fell in love with the mountains, there was the vast sea that first gave me the kind of comfort I wanted. That was the very moment I learned about the essence of solitude. Seeing her gives me so much solitude. Now that I’ve been away from the immeasurable sea for quite some time now, I can’t help but crave for that kind of comfort she gives just like the very first time we’re together.
We can get comfort from a lot of things around us — family/home, a movie theater, in a classroom; the trees and animals around, the rivers, the stars, the moon, the sun; eating your favorite food, playing music, or wandering through the woods. But there is a different kind of comfort that I want to have every once in a while. This is the kind of comfort that emanates from solitude. A kind of comfort that makes every neuron in my nervous system relaxed. A kind of comfort that helps me connect to the world of nature and spirituality. A time when all I want to do is to be with myself.
I believe that there is an exquisite form of comfort that comes from being alone, from having the opportunity to just kill time, from staring blankly at the wall, from looking over the horizon as the sun sets and rises, from wandering aimlessly through the woods, or anything that makes the world around me undisturbed.
