Thoughtful and eloquent, as timely (or timeless) now as when it was originally published in 1956, Thoughts in Solitude addresses the pleasure of a solitary life, as well as the necessity for quiet reflection in an age when so little is private. Thomas Merton writes: "When society is made up of men who know no interior solitude it can no longer be held together by love: and consequently it is held together by a violent and abusive authority. But when men are violently deprived of the solitude and freedom which are their due, the society in which they live becomes putrid, it festers with servility, resentment and hate." Thoughts in Solitude stands alongside The Seven Storey Mountain as one of Merton's most uring and popular works. Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk, is perhaps the foremost spiritual thinker of the twentiethcentury. His diaries, social commentary, and spiritual writings continue to be widely read after his untimely death in 1968.

Für Thomas Merton ist Meditation der Königsweg, um sich dem Geheimnis Gottes zu nähern. Das stille In-sich-Gehen, der Rückzug und das Atemholen sind für ihn intensive Formen der Gottesbegegnung. Daraus entwickelt sich eine innere Haltung der Dankbarkeit, die selbst das oft ruhelose alltägliche Tun zum Gebet werden lässt. Der Mystiker Merton führt mit diesem inspirierenden Buch den Weg in die Stille und gibt wichtige Impulse für die eigene meditative Praxis.

Solitude's of Poetry At Its Best are special collective moments; we are faced with during our universal lives. These messages come as a test of inspirational melodies reaching far back into the hearts of the living and traveling through their minds, as a test of time. All memories must come into one accord and agreement. During the quietness of these memories we are confronted within the Solitude's of Poetry and they are being harbored as a nostalgia as many such events of life. However, the recollections of these memories allows for the eventful moments, which are a part of our lives, and that which we having to live throughout our growing up stages. Also during the expressions of our lives we are associated within the Solitude's of Poetry by these collective thoughts. The Solitude's of Poetry is all of this and more, filling the vacancies and emotionalized thought coming into view, where the waters and the universe has to come to an understanding. Even as each has its own message and passageway of life, the reflection of serenity is being of one. Just as when the heart speaks the mind is at its mercy. Stop and listen to the quietness in the messages that are being attributed, and that each is understood with knowledge. Just as the manifestation on man, so are the visionary towels of man, that the distant learning becomes vital.

Why do we often long for solitude but dread loneliness? What happens when the walls we build around ourselves are suddenly removed—or made impenetrable? If privacy is something we can count as a basic right, why are our laws, technology, and lifestyles increasingly chipping it away? These are somong the themes that Sue Halpern eloquently explores in these profoundly original essays. In pursuit of the riddle of solitude, Halpern talks to Trappist monks and secular hermits, corresponds with a prisoner in solitary confinement, and visits and AIDS hospice and a shelter for the homeless places where privacy is the first—and perhaps the most essential—thing to go. This is a book that lends weight to the ideas that have become dangerously abstract in a society of data bases and car faxes, a guide not only ot the routes to solitude but to the selves we discover only when we arrive there.
