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.

..of a journey that began on July 1, 2009, with my first blogpost on my first blog, Beyond This Life, here, and is to continue adding to its over 1100 posts..

..write-ups on anything that clicks on a day to inspire to write..

Photography human emotions and expressions – life experiences - nature’s – landscape – travel

Quotes my reflections on life and things beyond life

Paintings (my sister’s) some of them are on my blog – Digital – Mix Media – photographs of canvas paintings

Now, in fifth year, the consistency of over two years on the journey is more about being disciplined; it is about drawing the satisfaction from that discipline of creating something regularly, day after day, in those 60-90 minutes (extended sometimes), than merely filling my blog with ‘anything’ on every passing calendar day just to maintain the count.

And the discipline, and the satisfaction of being able to create a work, asks for more, rightly and rightfully.

And it is to go on.
