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.

Come on! Let’s do what this mind conveys, my soul says  
Memories, again, have come back from a trip to that house
An address that was, once, life and call of every passing day

Come on! Let the mind’s call be heard, my soul says
Steps are already moving to the path, taking me along
The journey, too, is similar, like I would feel one with

Come on! Let’s relive those memories again, my soul says
Let’s sit with no worries of us, under the cover of those days
Let’s talk what we used to do, let’s create the moments again

Come on! Let's go to the place these memories have come from
Even if I have come this far, belongingness to that home remains
I had begun from there, in those days; I shall remain of the place

Come on! Let’s listen to this mind that is running to the home
Company of unruffled thoughts is there, waiting, arms spread
Come on! Let’s do some sensible things again, my soul says
