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.

Life was still in making when you were dying
In the thriving and outgrown forest of thoughts
The rush of feelings was clear as well as confusing
Travelling inside with the silence you sought
To prepare for the journey upcoming
To the lands you didn't know if at all existed
But with a silent commitment
To embrace what the future might have held
A life to the realms only heard and read so far
The thoughts were perplexed
Why to leave all that has been so known
Why to stay when a new path is opening up
With a relevance that had seemed illogical so far
Life was still reading its text
To see through beyond this life, to the ride ahead
