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 man and the dog were running parallel.

The man was motivated to reach his destination early.

The dog was motivated to reach there before the man.

Suddenly, something happened, and the man took a U-turn.

But the dog did not, pushed by a disciplined motivation and a carefree like.

The man, deeply pushed by the priorities of life, had to act wayward with his discipline whenever he smelled an opportunity.

The parallel between the dog and the man was about acting on motivation.

The dog smelled the motivation and acted on the opportunity thus, with discipline.

The man smelled the opportunity and twisted his motivation accordingly, with the ‘improvised’ discipline.
