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.

Thoughts flow. They come. They go. They stay put. 

Thoughts evolve. They accompany. They personify. 

Thoughts ideate. Thoughts pursue. Thoughts create. 

The idea of a thought. The idea behind a thought. 

The idea shaping a thought. The Thoughts shaping an idea. 

The idea of the thought that is shapeless – the thought that takes shape on the go --  

The thought that evolves as the time moves – day after day – sometime, the day is counted - sometime, the days remain unaccounted for - along our lives, with our many lives - with tales of our personal lives, with tales on our social lives. 

The thought that grows on social behaviour of who we are – on how socially customizable the human beings can become in a society. 

In societies that have had long runs of many orthodox cultural ethos affecting almost every sphere of personal and public life – ideas come, thoughts follow - thoughts push for ideas - and words flow - in societies facing existence many layered societies within with rapid and unequally distributed changes. 

And the individual should prevail - forced or self-driven, but that should be the desired outcome - something, that should be the most wished paradigm to follow. 

With the idea of an individualist philosophy that takes from the inner conscience as well as from the surroundings – sometime, an experience of flowing with the Ganga – sometime, spending an evening in hilly Landour with the tales of legendary ghosts of the place – sometime, exploring the human ethos in metro city slums – sometime, reflecting on life after reading a good book or watching some good cinema – a life moving ahead with many such ‘sometime’ moments - the thoughts that come and evolve.

The thoughts in a society social to you - the ideas to flow along your thoughts - and the life echoing your words - aspire and be spirited to respect others - be socially acceptable but follow your own script. 

The thoughts in a life special to you - the ideas on a life central to you. 

Grow. Grow with your thoughts. Be game for your ideas. Let them play with each other. 

Introspect. Look into your thoughts. Talk to them. Look beyond them. 

Reflect on. Work on your ideas. See what shape they take. And make your move. 

Think. Ideate.
