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.

Courage has been more than a word
It was the only help personified
When the darkness started taking over
It stayed as the only constant
When my Soul looked increasing distant
It has been there in moments of pain
When the spirit of living was the wane
It has been there in the moments of distress
When there were no more words to express
Courage has been more than a word
It has been the only call identified..
