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.

Sky, open, infinite and detached,
And restricted by its own attachments,
Pulls towards itself naturally,
With its contradictions,
Sometime, with scatter of colours,
Dispersed to the horizon I see,
Sometime, with paused dark clouds,
Fleeing or overstaying their course,

The melody of falling drops passes by,
Giving a piece of music to the soul,
Reminds me of some forgotten pain,
In the moments,
When thinking starts talking to itself,
About the days gone by,
And the life now,
Sky’s openness and stillness,
Seems is like this life only,
Beyond the limits,
But tied to its own attachments..
