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.

“I ask life: why are you so difficult? Life smiles and says: because you never appreciate anything that is easy.”

A forwarded text in my inbox tells so. So beautiful, it explains the basic philosophy of life. Like everyone, I, too, have been through this grilling of life. I cannot say what I have learnt but I know I have clearer thoughts now.

Good, bad, negative, positive – life is never complete without its varied colours. Try to be as simple as you can be with every moment of life that is what I have come to realize.

While sitting with me, thinking of all the possibilities, midst every nerve of non-sensibilities, deducing on something never thought of, deconstructing me of the moment

While sitting with my Soul, initiating on a journey to a written work, thinking it to be finality driven, finding it to be causality run

While being standing faceless on a crowded pathway, thinking on the character who just spoken to me

While following the daily chaos thoughtlessly, weaving on my thoughts of the day so far, mixing and sifting through the sand of the moments

While enjoying the now, erasing all that was, singing-along that went by, cruising to hold onto what the next moment could be

A life with simplicity in moments minus expectations and while living in the present and at the same time building on the past is what we need. Tomorrow is inevitable but surmising about it has its own share of complexities.

We can never live in absolute moments. No one is born perfect. No one dies perfect.  Knowingly or unknowingly, we all work to optimize the flow of the moments.

Be what you need to be in ‘today’ and the ‘tomorrow’ will be self-propelled. Philosphy to look at life is the simplest proposition that has been made some sort of ‘Holy Grail’.

Life at its core is individually philosophizing and growing, building a construct, based on where we are – our people, our thoughts.

“Never search your happiness in others. Explore it within yourself. Appreciate small gains. Accumulate them like your bank savings. ”
