Life Through The Rearview Mirror

Life Through The Rearview Mirror is hard,
because it’s very difficult to look back and move forward!

Have  you  ever  tried  to  drive  a  car  and move forward  looking at the rear view mirror ?  It is mission impossible. You will cause a traffic accident and you will not come anywhere with such a ride. Yes, we have   mirrors on our cars but only to look at them occasionally, not always.

Now look at your life. I like to say that I am psychic, because I can predict your future, but first I must know your past, because we are creatures of habit  and our whole life is in most cases the same. Our yesterday is the same like our tomorrow.  If you  do not believe me, look at your day. You rise to the same side of the bed every day at the same time, you perform the same rituals after getting up, you are going to the  school or at the work , you meet with the same people, talking about the same stories, which create in you the same emotions.

But what is tragic, your thoughts are the same as yesterday, like day before yesterday .From about 60.000 thoughts in one day, 99,99% are the same like yesterday ,and in 80 % of them you are thinking about your past, you’re thinking about two things:
– things you did not do, and you should (
missed opportunities);
things that you did and you should not (bad decisions).

80% of your time you live by looking in the rearview mirror ! It is impossible to move forward-looking at the rearview mirror. It is impossible to make progress in life   with same thoughts like yesterday. With same thoughts like every day.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
                                                                                                                          Albert Einstein

Change your thoughts !

You must look forward to move forward. You can’t change your future without changing your way of thinking. It’s simply not possible. With same thoughts your future will be the same like your past.If you want to beat some bad disease like cancer, you have to change the way of thinking which caused the disease.It is hard but you must !

You must be aware that everything starts in your head,your future, your health, your mental state. You are born for great deeds, but first your must start to believe in great deeds,you should be in the same line with your dream.At the same frequency with your dream.

Analyze your life here, are you satisfied in every aspect, or are you satisfied in any aspect!? Be honest with yourself. If you want to change something, you must first change your thoughts, and with this small change your whole life will change .


Look forward because your present and your future are there, your past is behind you, and you can’t change her, but your future you can because you have that power and I know, You Can Do It !!!



Once in a time, I have discovered that we are, humans,we are walking universe. That we create our own destiny. After that, nothing was the same !


  1. Hello Ben,
    I have found finally time to catch up and read your posts. We have moved to new house, completely different place and everything new… Simply – very busy times and new beginnings. I love your posts. I feel like I am reading my own thoughts. Thank you very much for sharing! Hopefully, you are doing great! Lot of regards from us <3


    • Hello Vero and hello little Canito,

      it is very hard in every new environment, because we humans, we hardly tolerate changes . But I am sure that everything is easier when you are with people you love,and with little buddy Canito . Thank you for your honest opinion, it seems that we have the same frequency and with that the same thoughts 🙂 Your comment is always welcome on my blog, because each comment brings a lot of positive energy

      Thank you so much for your kind words and cook great food for little Canito, and please inform us about that 🙂

      Stay blessed


    • Hi Frank,

      I agree with you,and the reason is to bring ourselves to the same frequency as our dream.

      Thank you for your valuable comment frank


  2. Wow, so many of our thoughts are repeating, from the sounds of it. Look ahead – and don’t forget to enjoy the present moment either 😉


    • Hi Christy,

      unfortunately this is the case.We are habit beings, and we like to repeat things, thoughts also .But we have that power to change things, to change our habits and to change thoughts.After that our whole life will change !

      Thank you for your comment Christy

      Stay smart


  3. I agree, future is the only thing we need to consider, the past is gone, the only reason we need to keep it with us, is to gain experience from it, otherwise the past is just the past.


    • Hi Moushmi,

      totally agree with you .We must be careful with our past, she can ruin our present and destroy our future !

      Thank you for your comment


  4. There isn’t anything here not to agree with, Ben. Oh yes we are what we think. Absolutely! Time and time again as I persistently (some would say stubbornly) stay focused on those things around me of High Vibration and line my thoughts up with those things, my life changes. I’ve actually thought my way out of symptoms that “threatened” to lead to dis-ease. I’ve also noticed the more I focus on the back pain I’ve been working on for years to eliminate, the worse it gets. Yesterday I forged ahead and had a tough workout at the gym, acting in every way 100% health. Yup, this stuff works! GREAT POST AGAIN!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    • Hi Amy,

      I am glad we have the same views Amy.Yes, those things are real and they are working. I love alternative medicine, and especially Chinese medicine because they focus on the cause not on the consequence.They focus on health, on body health, on mental health,because their is a problem of there lies the problem of any illness.When they improve the physical condition and the mental state of the patient, the patient’s condition will be better with that. When you look at the modern medicine, you will notice they are constantly talking about a patient’s illness, not about patient’s health.

      Thank you so much for your valuable comment


    • Hi Gigi,

      you are very very enlightened person, and you teach them well. Past experience could be our best teacher for our future, because personal experience is the best for our maturation. The saying goes, let the dead bury the dead which means leave the past in the past.

      Thank you for your comment

      Stay wise


    • Hello Marquessa,

      yes, you are right. All we can and should do, is to do our best.But I believe that is enough 🙂

      Thank you for your comment


  5. You are so right! Many times when I should be living and doing, I think of something from the past. Why? Seems to be in human nature. Or, if I want to understand something going on in the present, I look behind me to what happened in the past. I like your inspiring words. Can’t drive looking through the rearview mirror. Look straight out in front of me! Thanks for this thought FULL post.

    • Hello Pamela,

      you’re not an exception,because we are humans and as you said it is in our nature. Past is important part of our present but I believe that there should not be our burden.We should learn from our past, but our past should stay in past.At the end we must be aware that this will be our past tomorrow, and tomorrow will become our past next day.

      Thank you so much for your valuable comment Pamela

      Best regards


  6. a great the rear mirror example is a great way to show friends who to look in the right way… the future way.

    thank you for another smart post Ben.


    • Hi Mo,

      it is very hard to look at you past and think about your future.
      The past should be left in the past.

      Thank you so much for your comment
