At the centre of your being you have the answers to these essential questions. You know who you were before others defined you as someone you are not. Shame is the lie someone told you about yourself. You know, too, who you are now, having found your way back to your fated trajectory. You know that which you cannot live without, that which may not be compromised. You know when you must be brave, as therein alone will your brilliance be manifest; when you must make a move, and where you must go; when laughter may arise from your own spontaneous rapture, and not merely in accompaniment with vacuous amusement of others; when, where, and whom to love – in interest, fascination, infatuation, obsession – in tolerance, compassion, sacrifice. You know why mystery enchants you, why definition repels you; why, at times, you have no choice but to flee the latter in favour of the former. Your answers are your destiny – ineluctable, incontrovertible.
