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.

Being in a state of indecision – when you realize it – it opens the door to map the uncharted territory that was not possible or was myopied when you felt secured with tracked decisions en-route the perceptive dimensions of life. Being in a state of indecision makes you feel locked, chained, tethered, bound to an unknown fate!

And why allow the fate to decide you?
Why let yourself be captive to the visibly visible options only?
Why allow the questions to leave you perplexed and numb to the extent to leave a trail that say you could not work the riddle?
Why allow the negatives to prevail to the extent that they make your strength your very weakness?
Why not to try the other way round?
Why not make ‘the state of being in indecision’ a mapping exercise to find even higher tracks to be climbed?

The chronicle is hinged on uncertain moments when you find yourself looking for answers to scale further. And taking the challenge head-on here places you in the zone where you can touch the known yet unknown, explore the unseen and mobilize the volatile elements to build a life that is synonymous with you; that is synonymous with the natural flow of life. If life is about living, its text is to be read with all the embedded messages and all the ‘in-between the lines’ notions of the flow of ‘being you’.

Demand, deduce, decide, define, declare – play with the summative elements but remember - being the simple you, being the honest self of yours, being the upright Soul of the humane existence and being the persona of decisive integrity - is not that difficult as you had perceived or you still perceive! Indecision is just a state of mind that has the key to unlock the ‘Holy Grail’ of your long forgotten passion.
