WICKHAM CP, FL—About an hour after uploading the last post, which I thought was the end of this series, I realized there was one(?) more topic I wanted to address. Synchronistically, reader Jordan (via Facebook) asked about this exact topic a few hours later.
Divinely Alone is a very good term for the paradoxical state that the Mystic often finds himself in.
Because no one understands you, because your values are so vastly different, because it is practically impossible to take seriously what brings others ongoing consternation and stress, the feeling of being alone in the world is quite intense.
You feel disconnected from society because there doesn’t seem to be anyone out there who truly gets you. There doesn’t seem to be anyone out there even remotely like you.
Oddly, at the exact same time, the feeling of being divinely connected is likewise just as intense. You feel intimately connected to everything around you, you flow effortlessly with events, and the Divine is ever-present, seen, and felt within everyone and everything.
This divine connection means you never feel alone, that your Lover is with you and a part of you always (I/We/She).
Alone and Connected.
It’s a paradox.
The phrase, “in this world but not of it,” is often used to describe how the sage lives a life of detachment.
In this world but not of it is also a very good description for the feeling of being divinely alone: In this world (divinely connected), but not of it (socially alone).
