We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible. And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.

I am completely agree with the quote below. It's about being alone once in a while. I do believe that we must be alone every once in a while to be able to speak to ourselves in order to know what we feel inside without having an interference from other thoughts from other people. This doesn't mean that we'll be a loner or lonely, it's just those little time we can spend for ourselves.
