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.

Absolute thoughts of the grey in extreme wilds
Complete with exonerated guilts of nowhere
It was all so discrete and yet all so everyday
It happened to be one big anthem of nothingness
Shut up and closed down, pleading and waiting
Reading, taking notes of absence, writing nothing
The groovy slice and the curvaceous hollow
What that was there, what that wasn’t to be there
The theatre of the theatrics, beyond the insanity
In harmony with absurdity, romancing the ghetto
All said and done and yet all remained undone
The slight whisker and its magnanimous bartender
Rendered dates to the history, days remained empty
That strange love of the wilderness and its craziness
It was all so grey and extreme yet enticingly wilder
The absolute thoughts of the grey in the extreme wilds
