Loneliness and A Star Filled Sky

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.

As I walked Cooper the other night those words rang true.

For some reason that night as I stepped outside an overwhelming sense of loneliness filled me. The realm of loneliness felt on many levels.  And for various reasons such as....

Not feeling well lately, sense of isolation, not feeling connected, relationship differences, too many responsibilities falling on me, not feeling as if I have someone to genuinely, openly talk to without being judged and of course missing Angel.  Maybe reasons I don't even realize too.
 
Probably even a little frustration and stress mixed in as well.  Sometimes things can just reach a point where one feels like they have no where to go with stuff causing feels of being stuck. Which can lead to feelings of loneliness as well.
 
Yet some how when I look up at the sky at night, when seeing those bright stars there is a sense that maybe that loneliness we all feel at times is just an illusion of sorts.  The night sky can make one feel that we might not be as alone as thought.
 
And I wonder when I see those stars if maybe even the loved ones we have lost are some how shining down on us. This I wish more than anything.  To just have small signs of it would be great.
 
Remember while camping on Mt Rainier how astonished I felt by all the stars.  Had never seen an entire sky filled with stars. Sure a few bright stars here and there but living near big cities tends to lighten the sky in such a way that all those tiny stars filling the sky seem to become obsolete.  Yet in essence they are there, shining brightest in the darkest of nights.  

What an inspiration in those moments of negative emotional feelings.  To think that sometimes its in those very moments that even we can shine our brightest.  And that's what I tried to focus on. But we also need to just feel what we do too. 
 
Think there is something to be learned from everything, including feelings.  Though that doesn't mean they are easy to experience.  If only we could all take a little vacation from life, just get away to those places we dream.  Sometimes that is exactly what the soul needs, a little break from the daily routine to revitalize.  Or maybe it's even a move to where the soul feels at home the most.  For me it's the beach.

This is exactly what my soul desires. A star filled sky, warm salt breeze, on a beach, with a love that needs no words yet is felt deep within the soul.
