Faith

Faith in anything outside of God and the conscience
ability to push your self forward, is hazardous to
your brain cells.

We have faith in so many things that our very
existence seems meaningless and frivolous without said
things that ARE meaningless and frivolous!

I lost my phone. My precious Motorola v300 camera
phone and even though it wasn’t working – couldn’t
call out or text anyone – it was still an integral
part of my life. Even if I’m going to the
neighbourhood shop, I’d take the phone into my hands
because I considered it most precious to me.

Ah, but now, it is gone and I am like a fish out of
water to some extent. That phone held pictures and
numbers of peoples/places and things that meant a lot
to me. I wish my phone were here…

The funny thing is, whenever I got a new number, I
automatically put it in the phone without so much as a
second thought without even using the God-given brain
I have to memorise such numbers. I had Faith that the
numbers were safe as long as my phone was safe. I
believed that the phone would take care of that which
I held precious without considering that it was really
me/my memory banks 0- not the phone – that was
entrusted with that responsibility.

I jokingly say that the universe knew I needed a new
phone, but I miss it because of what it represented….
A safety net I guess – I dunno really. But what I do
know is that trying to remember even the simplest of
numbers has become a veritable nightmare because I put
phone over memory bank.

Faith in anything outside of God and the conscience
ability to push your self forward, is hazardous and
maybe even remarkably detrimental to your mental
State.

Maybe a symbol of new forms of communication in general. Deeper conversations - not the kind that are 'manmade'
