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.

Walking into the clouds,
Talking to me,
celebrating the lapse
Midst the drifting sun
Trading the silence
To time the chord of
Soon to be falling rain
To run deeply into
The highs of the hills
To get free of,
Limits of time, to go,
To the quiet song of
The still mountains
And their lost alleys

(Thoughts while somewhere in the mountainous highways)
