Reflections

Solitude and detachment

“Solitude is in the mind of man. One might be in the thick of the world and maintain serenity of mind; such a one is in solitude. Another may stay in a forest, but still is unable to control his mind. He cannot be said to be in solitude. 
A man attached to desire cannot get solitude wherever he may be; a detached man is always in solitude.”
(~ Sri Ramana Maharshi)
