I vs You

When I am ambitious,
I am isolating myself.

When I am competitive,
I am isolating myself;

when I want to be superior to you,
I am isolating myself; 

when I am seeking, pursuing pleasure,
I am isolating myself.

I don't know if you see all this.

So, this loneliness is a form of isolation which the mind has cultivated through ambition, through competition, through the desire for success, through the pursuit of pleasure, and this has brought about this sense of complete isolation, loneliness.
