Alone in Calm Isolation
What is to gain from isolation?
(1) The final result from isolation is Original and Intentional Thought. To know yourself and the thoughts you have allows you to realize the repetitive thoughts that invade your conscious mind and steal your time and emotional energy. Over time, you will change the amount of invading thoughts that get through or stop them completely.
Why change your thoughts?
Because you become what you think about most. You are your thoughts made manifest. If you change your thoughts, you change your emotions, which changes your DNA and your experience.
(2) Isolation gives you ample time to learn how to calm your rushing mind, to bring it under control.
As we all know, it’s not easy to control your thoughts, but with time and focused practice it gets easier. It simply takes time to listen to your thoughts and get to know your mind. You will eventually see the repeating thoughts, the patterns, and the fears. Knowledge of your thoughts will lead to a change in them, if change is indeed what you want to achieve.
