The Illusion of not being alone

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone. -Orson Welles-

The true intention of family, friendship, and companionship is to make us, human, doesn’t feel so miserable and alone. Even the creation of Eve was to put Adam out of misery, out of loneliness he felt. Adam was so bored of being alone in heaven, God felt the need to create another human being to accompany him. And that’s the first time the illusion of friends and companionship made up.

We’re just like Adam in heaven. Each and every one of us. We are craving for recognition from other people, for love, companionship, just because we don’t want to be alone. We’re trying to accomplish that by making connection to another human being. We’re looking for those things to feed the illusion. The illusion where our value is defined by our succeed in creating the connections with other lives. We’re trying so hard to avoid being alone that sometimes we forget the reality, that is ourselves.

How many times we do something for other people? How many times we try to hold back just to make the other person happy? We’re drowned in our effort to feed the illusion, we forget about the reality that lays inside us, ourselves.  There would be no more “I” then, only “you” or “they”. On and on we feed the illusion, we make ourselves hungry. Hungry for self-recognition. We’re busy trying to conquer loneliness, we forget that only in solitude, we can find ourselves.

So go! Feed your illusion, make that connection, but don’t you ever forget to feed the reality too, that is you. At the end of the day, when all of those illusion betray you, you’ll still have yourself to depend on.

Warm regards,

(This writing is nonsense. It’s been a while since the last time I write in English. Besides, I’m craving for a real tight hug -in real life- right now. Like 5 Mississippi hugs. Or maybe even 10s).
