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 quiet restrictions of the playfulness
The unchained joy of the rough surface
Missing like hell the charm of those days
In a life driven by sophisticated excess

A desperate urge in an age of prowess
To meet the child in you and his grace
Living the life in that careful embrace
Oh that paradise and this futile access

Time cannot go back but have your recess
Rediscover the child in you, that lovely mess
Of kin, of friends, of the thoughtless ways
Oh the carefree days, that childhood caress
