If you listen deeply, there’s just a slight shift of emphasis between “alone” and “all one.”
San Francisco, CA (USA) -- Lonely? Loneliness is a condition we all experience. In and of itself, there’s nothing wrong with that. For example, there’s a German word combining the word for forest, ‘wald’, with ‘einsamkeit’, the word for loneliness or solitude. But loneliness or solitude aren’t negative, and ‘waldeinsamkeit’ doesn’t mean being morose or frightened. Rather, ‘waldeinsamkeit’ refers to a sense of being at one with nature, as in walking alone in the forest. Tranquil and peaceful.
