Living free of attachment is key to achieving enlightenment
Nana Mouskouri - Alone Humans have always been lonely beings. What matters is what we do with our loneliness. Some people cannot endure the loneliness and fall into depression and give up on life. Others attain enlightenment through deep observation of and realization about the true nature of loneliness and human life. Through enlightenment we can overcome loneliness and arrive at "a new birth of the soul."
