A Moment of Certainty
by Abraham Khoureis, Ph.D., M.A.
Few of us will ever reach our ‘moment of certainty’ in life and will always be misguided by the details of life itself. Some of us are preoccupied with running after accumulating wealth. While others are preoccupied with their physical appearance, beauty and health: John wants to become a handsome hunk, while Betty wants to become the Model of her time. Yet, the average ones among us live without wealth, beauty, or good health. They live just for the sake of being alive. Only, the rare breed among us understand their “moment of certainty” and know their purpose in life.
A moment of certainty is when one day you wake up in the middle of the day or night and realize what you want in life. It is when all the possessions in life mean nothing to you. It is when you realize your beauty will fade, and there are important things to focus your energy on.
A moment of certainty is when you become. It is when you speak truth to power and not easily impressed by the #smile of Tom, the #muscles of Dick, and the #wealth of Harry. It is when you glimpse through the remarkable physical #beauty of Marylyn and see her rotten soul. A moment of certainty is destined and meant for the brave of us. Meant for the few, and meant for the #wise.
