Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away... and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast.... be happy about your growth, in which of course you can't take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don't torment them with your doubts and don't frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn't be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn't necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust.... and don't expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.

    It speaks to my inner struggles of solitude and growth. I wish I could find my twin flame/soul mate, but I also enjoy my solitude and apperciate my many lives during this life.

      Its about personal growth. When you live your life fully without fear your soul/spirit/personality is changing, developing. But some people not. Even beloved ones. So its about understanding that they are choosing another way. It can be painful. Your task in this situation is to never forget about love which is most powerful energy. You will be fullfilled then. Simple as that :)

      I can explain each part of that quoute for you if you want.

    He did not at that time have the imagination or science knowledge to travel further inside him self and had gotten stuck at a point thinking he could not take everyone on his journey beyond time and space that he had discovered a glimpse of.
    He was stuck on a high frequency that he did not understand or it him.
    He must have bin sending out allot of sorrow mixed in with some powerful love.
    He went places ofc but loosing his connection to this dimension in the process.
    He understood that some one would understand one day and be able to solve it all, that time sure has come.
    The love that is stored up as inheritance is for all of us.
