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.

You need to follow a path but for that, it is never needed that you have to walk on a delineated trajectory.

Except ‘you’, nothing in life that comes during your existence is delineated.

Except ‘you’, nothing in your living comes defined.

And except ‘you’, no one else can push you to read and redefine the definition that is ‘you’.

But, do you feel that you read it?

Do you realize the need to feel that you need to read it?

Can you foresee its direct corollary in your life?

The direct correlation of life with the living is dependent on whether you have been able to realize that you need to read your ‘self’ and you need to write ‘you’.

The direct interpretation of living with the life is dependent on whether you realize that this ‘reading you’ and ‘writing you’ is an ever-evolving process.

The direct representation of ‘you’ in your existence is dependent on whether you are able to create and sustain a bond between this ‘reading’ and ‘writing’.

Don’t rush to, and never run for, that someone else would come to lift you up from a life that sucks more than it fills.

Others can only be complementary to your efforts and they, in their limited capacity, are effective only when you are there to hold them up.

Others can only tell that there could be a path to follow but only you can show ‘you’ if the path is to be followed.

The flow of your life has to originate from ‘you’.

A life spanned over years, the trajectory of your living would have extensions but they need to be like the tributaries coming and merging into your flow. They have to be the auxiliary-definitions of the definition that is ‘you’.

Read ‘you’ first. Start reading ‘you’ first. Yes, it is a quest. Yes, it is the quest.
