This post was somewhat inspired by finding the following from Jennifer Welwood:
Willing to experience aloneness,I should probably look for where I got this from at some point.
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I am given unimaginable gifts;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.
Each condition that I flee from pursues me,
Each condition that I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed
Into its radiant jewel-like essence.
I bow to the one who has made it so,
Who has crafted this Master Game;
To play it is pure delight,
To honor it is true devotion.
