A dear friend, who has been a great teacher for me, reminded me of these words that I read long ago…
“There are always moments when one feels empty and estranged. …
Such moments are most desirable, for it means the soul has cast its moorings and is sailing for distant places.
This is detachment— when the old is over and the new has not yet come.
If you are afraid, the state may be distressing, but there is really nothing to be afraid of.
Remember the instruction: Whatever you come across— go beyond.”
