Descriere

IN SOLITUDE'S GRACE a Poetry Book by JULIAN BOUND

A poetry collection by award winning documentary photographer and National Geographic contributor Julian Bound.

Within the perceptions of solitude and seclusion, a fine line is often drawn between the emotional connotations of happily living a solitary life and that of loneliness.

Exploring the isolation found within solitude, 'In Solitude's Grace' examines emotions revealed within the self's search for peace, a journey of which frequently requires a soul to be guided through the steps of solitude.

From seclusion, either chosen by an individual of forced upon, through to silence, solace and awareness, the eventual calm and attainment of happiness wished for is at last achieved when conquering that of which most fear – an aloneness of being.

Inspired by the receival of teachings from the Indian mystics of the India's northern Himalayan regions, and those of the Buddha's principles from the Buddhist monks of Tibet, Bhutan and northern Thailand, 'In Solitude's Grace' is the third part of a trilogy of books exploring the soul and its eternal workings through traditional and Japanese haiku poetry. Accompanied by the books 'The Awareness of Being' and 'These Remnants of Self.

An exploration into the concept of what it means to be alone.

FOREWORD

An advent of solitude into the life of an individual often carries supposed concepts to accompany its arrival.

Loneliness and isolation factor in these perceived notions of an encounter with seclusion, no matter how long a period such moments are to continue for.

The idea of time spent alone can be infused with a fear once unknown towards thoughts of said separation from others, a barren landscape where without company aloneness reigns.

Yet it is in the very nature of solitude that the essence of the soul is waiting to be revealed and so ultimately revelled within, providing insights into life’s tempestuous workings and so promoting the ultimate discovery of the true self and all surrounding.

Be it forced upon or simply by making the choice to withdraw into the shelter seclusion offers, solitude comes to all at some point within a life’s journey; although it is each individual’s decision to reap the hidden opportunities offered within an oft veiled world of time spent alone.

A call to arms comes into play as the self battles for stimulation from outside forces, but it is in the continuation of seclusion that the soul’s whispers are so heard, a skill of listening developing as the heart and mind take note and so adhere to the possibilities solitude’s riches emit.
