In the day when most people are in The Matrix (walking backwards, thinking they’re actually walking forwards), this may be our reality once we break out of the trance — shining as bright lights in this ever darkening world.
I often think of it as swimming upstream, which I had a dream about once. The people were in the river flowing by me as I was cruising upstream, no problem. In the dream it was easy, practically effortless. But I think effortlessness can only happen when we are 100.00% determined walk fully in Love, abiding 100.00% in the Vine (John 15) — no ifs ands or buts all in Jesus — His ways all my days.
May we be ONE in Him (John 17). Then it will really be a piece of cake.
And many will do 180s to join us in walking forward, together with us, grounded in Love.

Here’s a fun and creative idea that requires brains rather than a big budget: using an ordinary video-capable camera and some basic editing software, you can show a person walking forward through a world that’s traveling backward. For even crazier examples of this same technique, check out the music videos for The Scientist by Coldplay, Typical by Mutemath, and Drop by The Pharcyde.
