Can a spiritual path such as the Course be a path of loneliness and isolation?

Question: Can a spiritual path such as the Course be a path of loneliness and isolation?

Question: At times in working with "A Course in Miracles," or many spiritual paths, the ego does experience loneliness. It is a feeling of separation that is buried very deep. I chose to face those feelings by going off to live in a hermitage in the woods, where the lonely feelings came up in my face! So often when you remove distractions, you first become in touch with loneliness and emptiness. The appearances that were given meaning, you withdraw the meaning from. And for a moment, or many moments, it can seem like a meaningless journey. It is just the ego being raised up into awareness.
