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.

My reflections on life – in quotes (XXIV)    

“Someone said it is now foolish to become emotional and 
take emotional decisions in dealing with other people. 
I say it is better to be an emotional fool 
than a practical opportunist and selfish experimenter. 
If you know your sphere of life, it can never cost you dearly. 
On the contrary, you then come to appreciate the life better 
when it matters the most. “
