To go through loneliness lead to something greater, to a deeper state, which is "aloneness". It's to be completely free, stripped of knowing anything. It does not mean to be deprived of the superficial, mechanical knowledge that is necessary for everyday existence . But this state of consciousness is a state that no influence, of any kind, can affect. It is no longer a state of isolation. The quality of "ALONENESS" characterizes the state of a waking mind.
