What are you seeing, what are you feeling, what are you perceiving in all the aspects of your senses, when you look in the rear-view mirror?
This thought came to me while driving, at times I slow everything right down and view it as it is. When I do this I sense and feel things on a deeper level and words flow to me.
As I glanced in my rear view mirror the world around me appeared to be flowing in slow motion, or maybe I was. Then the thought came of I wonder what everyone else sees when they look in their rear-view mirror? cars, traffic, the world around them, and I thought I wonder if they see it boxed or open.
Boxed I use as the term when I refer to the world in all its restricted views. Open a term to refer to the world when you see it as it is.
To see the world in my rear-view mirror that day as boxed, all I would see would be traffic, roads, cars, and probably whatever mobile device I have in front of me, aiding my direction to whatever destination I had input.
But that day I was viewing the world exactly as it was…openly. The car motioned slowly, I saw people, children, mother’s fathers, happy sad, excitement, I have seen trees and plants and flowers, I have seen traffic lights, red, yellow, green, I see cars in a multitude, blacks, greys, blues. I was absorbing the world around me in slow motion.
Then it comes to me and I wondered if that rear-view mirror was our life what would we see? and when we self reflect in our own rear view mirror are we doing so boxed or open?
