Nil aon tin tan mar do thin tan fein

"Nil aon tin tan mar do thin tan fein" is an Irish proverb that can be translated as "there is no fireside like your own." The literal, and rough, translation is, "there is no hearth like the hearth of youself." The ability to be alone and sit quietly at one's own inner hearth, or heart, is worth developing. Those moments when you open the doors of your own heart and look within, when you warm yourself with the flames of love that radiate from your own inner fire, without asking anything in return, are strengthening. But we also have to remember that too much time spent alone can make us blue, even when we are surrounded by lush growth.
