I finally figured out why I like this song so much and why it's on my mind. Beautifully written. "I am the highway" Many people can relate to life experiences in their own story, those are matched energies and we can just agree to let that go because they don't serve who we are. I actually resonated with the sound of the guitar. Kudos to a friend who sings this well. I will pay mind, most who write, just do it and the thought behind it might be channeled. I read through some of the thoughts about the meaning, yes, if you have a relatable experience and tragic loss of love or experience being out of the body on drugs it might represent that to you. That is not my experience. Mine is about the spirituality behind the words, that is where I resonate.
I have published poetry that just came to me as words in the middle of the night, so I wrote the words down and when I read them later, they had a personal meaning that profoundly resonated with my life. I kind of feel my connection with the words here as a bit of synchronicity because I have points in these words that match what my past has been. They meant something to me. they pointed at moments in my lifeline. Many of us don't take the time to jot those thoughts down and they are lost forever but I was gifted with a photographic situational memory and many stuck with me. Lessons about actually walking the soles off shoes to seek employment, things I felt were difficult, yet in the end when I was called to interview I knew the position was mine. That was of personal power, but it came to me seemingly hard. At the time I walked many miles, despite having a car that ran just fine. You see, I made it hard. At least at the expense of my shoes. I feel those associations as a gift to release because they aren't relevant to who I AM now.
First: "Pearls and Swine": Matthew 7:6 in Jesus's Sermon on the Mount: "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces."
"Bereft of me": It refers to how we define emotions inside our personal space. Bereft is a past principal of bereaving, Loss of love and the grief one feels following such a loss, loss of self-love, deprived of or lacking something, especially a nonmaterial asset.
The verse is about not giving away your gifts and treasures to those who would not appreciate them or who would turn on you. Invalidation post failed relationship.
"Friends and liars don't wait for me,
'Cause I'll get on all by myself.
I put millions of miles under my heels;
And still too close to you, I feel, yeah."
We mourn the loss of love, to others, it is a topic. It really is meaningless, but when we have loved and lost that person is on our mind until we let go of our cords, contracts, vows, and agreements and retrieve the personal keys we gave them when we chose to allow them inside of our personal space and forgive. We are not actually free from thinking about them until we do this. If they are on our mind, they are in our energy affecting future choices. Loss of love is similar to the process of grief. We do not forget our personal experiences, we can only realize the karma lesson, feel how we felt and let that go. Someone coming to mind is an opportunity to release that energy and upgrade. It is something we should actually be grateful for.
"I am not your rolling wheels – I am the highway.
I am not your carpet ride – I am the sky."
We have all been taken advantage of somehow, maybe we felt like we were tossed under the bus, someone's carpet ride. It isn't true again points to feeling the space of power because if we chose to support someone who did not emotionally support us, it is a choice. Our choice.
I am the highway, I am the sky. Free and open space, clear path, Again Eckhardt Tolle. "You are the sky. The clouds are what happens, what comes and goes." I am a spirit, guiding this body in this life.
I AM fine despite the miles that might have passed under my heels. This is a lesson about prosperity and abundance and realizing it is ours, alone. We may walk many miles in our lifetime before realizing that we just have to BE who we are and love what we do. Finding that space is our personal journey.
"I am not your blowing wind – I am the lightning.
I am not your autumn moon – I am the night… the night."
This is Power vs Force (Hawkins). Low vibrational energy is the energy of push. Remember the story we heard as children about the sun and the wind trying to remove a man's coat? Wind only caused him to clutch it tightly. Sun's warmth caused him to take it off. Things can be easy, depending on how we perceive and feel the situation. That is a learned experience, our belief.
It doesn't have to be hard, but, lessons and learned beliefs can make it seem so. Those are based on personal choices in our own lifetime, not because of others.
When I clear personal energy, I visualize the sky represented as self. A perfect crystalline blue energy. Things that pass and aren't our energy I see as passing cirrus clouds. They will always pass, continuously change and transform, just like the ones in the sky. The clear sky represents our self as "Present, on point, standing in this exact moment in my personal power."
