A reader wants a discussion on how people survive divorce.
Qouth the raven: "To me, there's nothing worse than being alone..."
Well... I've been living alone and celibate for the bulk of my life. Sure, occasionally there can be a pang of loneliness. But I really don't think it is very important. (And I know people living with others have the same problems, some of them much more than me.)
Many people will protest: "What do you mean? Surely there is nothing more important than love?"
That's true, but love between only two people is "special love" (as A Course In Miracles call it), and it is just severely limited. It is just a tiny, tiny bit of Everything. And if it seems fantastically important to you, you are already in trouble, no matter if you "have" somebody or not.
