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.

The state of thoughtlessness is sometimes the most thought-provoking state of mind when we all of a sudden come across to the keys to the answers we were seeking for long.

There are questions in life the answers of which are already with us, lying somewhere in the conscious.

The solutions to those answers do navigate in our subconscious thought process. But in a state of inundated thoughts, the extensions, the thought elements of different aspects of our lives, intertwine to make the clarity intermittently indistinct at the level of conscious, preventing us to feel the separation and dependence of one aspect of life from the other; preventing us to see one answer from the other.

And consequently the answers to the problems (or the questions) acquire multi-dimensional character creating a sort of inertia where we increasingly look for the solution, a way out anyhow, and fail to question us for the answer that we needed.

Problems create questions. The lives we live make them multi-character and hence unclear or vaguely clear. When questions persist over a period of time, we start demonizing them and seek to run away from when what we need is the ‘answer’ and not a ‘compromised solution’.

In a state of thoughtlessness, when most of the thoughts are killed temporarily and the intertwined extensions lose their character and dissolve, we have the opportunity to realize the clarity when the answers unravel the keys to them. 

In a state of thoughtlessness, in some undefined, abrupt moments, our thoughts are provoked by one dominant aspect of that moment when other persons in us recruit to take a backseat.

But, getting to the state of thoughtlessness is a craft seldom mastered at.
