Here on earth, the merry go round keeps going. You can’t ask everybody to stop so you can re-calibrate or catch up. You have to keep going. The obligations, and responsibilities are there. Meanwhile, there IS respite. You can look up. You can stop for a moment, even if life keeps going, and you can take a look at the heavens. Escaping from the ant mentality and making room for a different perspective. Sometimes I do this when I am driving to work. Just for a few seconds, I look up and around at the sky and really try to connect with the heavens. Knowing that He is there (and here) and that what I am experiencing isn’t all there is. I have to readjust my view or I will becomes deceived and this life will take me down.
