The Rear View Mirror

When you have more in your past, and further to look in your future, it's sometimes confusing to really get a clear grasp of now.  What matters now?  What is the moment?  There's a great line I heard from an old Meatloaf song, that isn't the silver lining, but is definitely golden!!  It says:
"But it was long ago and it was far away, Oh God it seems so very far,  And if life is just a highway, Then the soul is just a car. And objects in the rear view mirror, May appear closer than they are."

Beautifully put.  The soul is just a car... I love that!!  And looking back at things, even when they seem so long ago, always makes them appear closer, because we can still see them... and trying to look ahead, we can't tell what we'll come up on next!!

I am constantly questioning everything... saying the same things over and over with different words... but these things eventually evolve as they need to.  Our beliefs serve us as they need to, right or wrong, good or bad, late or early, wet or dry... none of these dualities matter as much as the awareness they bring us... the reality they elude to.  We can never be too sure of what exists for others, because we aren't riding in their car... our judgements are never really an accurate map!!  So regardless of what we are soooooo sure of where we are right now, eventually it will be an image in the rear view mirror, as we ride on down the highway of life in our dream soul!

Today's Silver Lining:
"First the earth was flat, but it fattened up when we didn't fall off, now we spin laps 'round the sun, all the gods lost, 2-1, a host of heaven pointed out to us from light years away, we're surrounded by a billion galaxies, things are not always, things are not always how they seem, will you be ready' will you be ready'"  2 1- by Imogen Heap
