even if entire human race becomes your friend , you are bound to suffer from loneliness . The real reason for loneliness is not absence of someone from your life but absence of yourself from your life . Bring back yourself into your life and fall in love with yourself , you would never ever feel lonely . You are in the company of crowd that is why you are feeling lonely . Be alone and you would be in eternal bliss . Aloneness and loneliness are inimical to each other . I have never ever felt loneliness because of absence of anyone but whenever i am in crowd and company i suffer from loneliness . This sounds paradoxical but truth is always paradoxical and that is why most of the people never understand even a single truth during their entire life-time.
Swami Sacchidananda Saraswati
