I always wonder what the two lonely people do when they meet?
Do they just sit silently and gaze into each other’s eyes?
Do they make the most noise?
Or, do they spend time alone with one another?
Once upon a time, in the jungle, there lived a rabbit named “Muffin.” He prefers his own company and, despite his best efforts, he is never able to relax in the company of others. He gets annoyed by his own behavior at times, yet he also feels at peace with himself. He is often perplexed as to why he enjoys being alone but is unhappy when he is. Some other animals held a full moon party one day and invited Muffin as well, stating that everyone must attend or the king lion will eat them. Out of fear, Muffin went to the party and sat in the corner, watching other animals eat, dance, and sing, and then he tilted his head upward and saw the full moon shining brighter without stars, Muffin smiled and moved his head over to his left side, where he saw a baby bear (Tubby) eating berries while sitting under a tree. Tubby gave Muffin a smile when he spotted him looking at him, and Muffin returned the smile, feeling good and approaching Tubby to sit alongside him. Tubby gave him some berries, which he accepted, and the two of them ate them while gazing at the moon. Even though they didn’t say anything to each other that day, Muffin felt nice just sitting next to Tubby. The next day, they gathered at the same place to sit alone and eat. This goes on for several days, and they spend the most of their time together; sometimes they chat too much, and other times they just sit silently; quietness is something they both enjoy. One-day tubby asked muffin “how many friends do you have?” muffin replied “no one”. , tubby smiled and after a pause, he said don’t you ask me? muffin replied “hmm because the answer is the same”, tubby smiled brighter this time and then they start enjoying the berries again. Muffin still likes to be alone but this time he was happy being alone because he founds another loner tubby with whom he enjoys being alone.
The opposite is also said to attract humans, as it does in physics, and I’ve seen this in movies and heard from many people since my childhood. This may be true, but you know what, Sometimes all we need is a person like ourselves who is our mirror and sees right through us, who can understand us and even silence sounds like a deep conversation with him.
Liking solitude is a nice thing, but if you have someone with whom you are pleased and who enjoys solitude with you, then believe me, God has blessed you with the ultimate bliss.
Silently watching the world around you with someone,
People call it boring, but I think it’s the best peace anyone could have.
