Self Certainty

Life artefacts: the attributes of our world which

make us us.  Which forge our understanding of what

and who we are.  These artefacts hold power for

us.  They resonate, they thrum with our reason to

be.  If removed, struck away: we become bereft

of direction and belonging: we lose inner

essence-purpose.  Lost in the world’s melange, perhaps

we’ll never again feel that deep meaning, that one

directed intent that drove us and starved us. 

That forged an inner hunger: insatiable

desire to reach our goal, hit zenith and be who

we want to be, do what we want to do, express

who we are, through what we do.  And why.  Without those

life artefacts, all is meaningless: pointless drudge-

working, fulfilling someone else’s dream – someone

else’s vision of who our self should be.  We are

a robot pushing buttons.  We are lifeless.  Don’t

let go.  Don’t lose.  Don’t be mugged of you.  Of what it

means to be you.  Use that.  Follow it.  Be it.  Now.
