If one wants to give birth to the light in oneself, it is imperative to spend time alone.
In Ekaant (alone time) our own Mann (Mind-Soul) comes to the fore. We can look at ourselves more clearly. Our own fears come forward. How do we do away with them - good thoughts must replace them.
For example, if a woman must give birth, she does not do it in publicly and open. Only in Ekaant, aloneness. If too many people are there, there is sankoch (hesitation).
Similarly, if we have to give birth (ignite or reignite) to Paramatmaa (divine within us), it is imperative to spend time alone. The process can be in a community too, but it is extremely important to have your time alone as well as the presence of others can bring hesitation.
One day a person came to the temple in the mountains. He came across a Sadhu (Saint). The sadhu started screaming. He said he was starting to connect with his inner divine and the vibrations of the presence of another were disturbing.
