Ultimately we are alone as a piece of the puzzle that this universe represents. Alone in our thoughts , in the pursuit of our dreams and happiness. We can have the illusion that something or someone can make our dreams come true, can bring us the ever wanted happiness. That is a state of mind, and nothing else. When the end comes and we turn into the dust that created us, we will be alone and nothing but illusions will be left behind. That is reality…and when we accept it, we begin to live ! Only then we begin to appreciate the moments that put together this trip we take from birth to the inevitable passing into non-existence. Life is a game we are bound to lose , so what counts is what we make of it. A second can be a lifetime , we just have to see it likewise !
