+ The whole value of solitude depends upon one's self; it may be a sanctuary or a prison, a haven of repose or a place of punishment, a heaven or a hell, as we ourselves make it.

+ This is the first post in The Journey of the Body segment of these Spiritual Explorations posts.  We will explore Solitude, Devotion and Holiness during this journey.  Does this make sense?  Do these practices seem like Body practices?  I don’t know.  Maybe I am simply trying to fit these practices into my model.  But, when you think about it, solitude is surely a practice which can get you in touch with your body.  Right? Maybe as we continue to explore these practices, the connection of the body to Solitude, Devotion and Holiness  will become more apparent.  We just finished exploring the practice of Healing which is definitely an essential continuing practice as we go on this Journey of the Body.

Surely the Mind practice of Stillness and the Heart practice of Silence will again come into play here.  And we can look forward to the practice of Simplicity when we get to the Journey of the Soul.  These are all closely connected practices.  We have explored Stillness and Silence and you can always work some more on these essential spiritual practices by going to the Spiritual Explorations Posts Access Page and selecting posts in those sections.

+ I would love it if you offered a guest post on this practice or any practice.  And, I have work to do on my Solitude Page.   Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Solitude” or “Guest Post” to
