Good morning. (Good morning)

The topic is "Surviving Loneliness."

We all feel lonely sometimes. Right? (Yes)

Most of the time. (Laughter)


Why do you feel lonely?


People have an expectation to us; we have an expectation to ourselves.

It's not other people's expectation; it's my expectation, when we fall short, we feel lonely.

So what do you do with that?


I know that you don't want to be lonely, so what do you do with that?

What do you do when you feel that?


Cut to the chase. Okay? (Means: "Let's get straight to the point.")


Your existence is a miracle.


Your life is a miracle.


Your physical existence, your intellectual existence, your spiritual existence is a miracle.

So many things that can happen, it's up to you. Just in itself, your existence is a miracle.

So when you just fall into that kind of loneliness period basically you're disregarding your existence reality, which is a miracle.


You should not expect a greater miracle beyond what you've got.
