Solitude – Detaching

Standard

True solitude arises from delinking (detaching) rather not having a
relation with body, mind, sense and intellect.

Whether it be solitude or company of men, a spiritual aspirant
(sadhak) must not believe that his spiritual practice is dependent on
a particular circumstance or situation; rather, he must make his
spiritual discipline, in accordance to the available situations and
circumstances.

One who is desirous of solitude, becomes dependent on the situation
and circumstances. He who is dependent on these circumstances, he is
a seeker of pleasure (bhogi), he is not a spiritual aspirant (yogi).

A spiritual aspirant (sadhak) should have neither attraction for
crowds of people, nor for solitude. Salvation and spiritual
upliftment, does not come from your circumstance, rather it comes
from being free of desires and passion.

To consider solitude as going to places that are not infested with
people or to be left alone, is a grave mistake; because this body,
the seed of this entire universe is with you only. As long as there
is an affinity (a link) with this body, till that time one continues
to be attached and linked to the entire world.

This body is a limb of the world. So detachment from the body, i.e.
being free of egoism and attachment is true solitude.

A spiritual aspirant having interest in solitude is good thing,
however it must not be with an attachment. Insistence on solitude
might cause disturbance in his inner faculties, when one does not get
it, it reinforces the importance of the world.
