A reminder to myself: You don’t have to choose between solitude or engagement. There is a sweet spot between time for yourself and time for the world. You go inwards to find peace and you go outwards to spread peace. Seek your treasures from within and share them with others as you find them. Solitude without engagement or engagement without solitude — none of these states are healthy.
So remember, the middle way is the path. Veer to either extreme and the balance is lost.
Love yourself first, then love the world. But never forget to love the world. That, after all, is the sweet fruit of loving yourself.
We are all one.
