The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

WHY DO WE BELIEVE IN GOD OR SOME SUPERNATURAL ENTITY?
All the known history around some supernatural entity revolves around these words only and it is true across the table. Do we inherit only or do we assimilate values related to these words before adopting a mindset towards some 'almighty' natured entity? We talk about feelings to sanctify this trust but these feelings are at most derived ones and not the evolved ones. No one has seen and no one can see and no one should claim to see that entity. And, yet most of us depend on it and this dependence brings the handicap of constrained consent of accepting everything in life as it comes. But, all of us, cannot justify certain events in our lives in the name of this entity. All that happens in life is not for good.
Its true we all define god as we think but it is mixed with body of knowledge and societal norms that we inherit. In commonality, god is someone beyond limits of this world yet we all, all the time, talk of it. Again I would say just bring even one pure person who can verify her/his claims of feeling/encountering god. There will be no one, yes, except the tall claim making godmen. There comes the term supernatural entity for what we define as god, for we look for to be with god, for we seldom feel for god as someone a family member.
Love, sorrow, pain, happiness, anger, peace, these are basic psychological human traits and mankind is bound to be circumnavigated by these only. If we don't talk about individual preferences, then we cannot escape any of these mental states whether we believe in god or not. My question remains the same that how do we come to believe in god or some supernatural entity as i have more questions than answers I don't feel sorry for it now?
