SOLITUDE is vital to Blank Slating and, thereafter, Self-Realization. Today’s world is busy, is distracting, so you must imprison yourself, trap yourself in your own company, away from all distraction, and stay there until your mind quiets – until you stop thinking about your present concerns – your job, your kids, your lover, your responsibilities, your stresses, your problems.
Only then will you make progress, think clearly on what needs blank slated, on who you really are, what you really believe, what past traumas have been buried in your psyche all these years but never absolved.
These are the things you must realize, the things you must face, accept, and control-or-eliminate if you are to be free and strong, a Free Man or Woman.
Find your place and time for SOLITUDE. And when you go there, BE there. Free your mind of your daily concerns, your daily life, and focus on the whole of who you are.
It won’t be easy at first. You’ll have to continually refocus.
But it’ll change your life.
