Impossible Dream

I love the song, Impossible Dream, I’ve often thought it has a pseudo-spiritual quality to it, although I can see where it might be considered an ‘all about me’ song too. Regardless of how you interpret the underlying meaning of the song, it stirs emotions deep inside.

Which started me thinking, ‘To Dream the Impossible Dream, to fight the unbeatable foe, to bear with unbearable sorrow, to run where the brave dare not go, to right the unrightable wrong, to be better than you are, to try when your arms are too weary…to reach the unreachable star.’  Isn’t this what we are all doing every day? What dream seems more impossible than the one nearest and dearest to our heart? What foe appears more unbeatable than our own demons? What sorrow seems more unbearable than the sorrow we hide in our hearts? Don’t we all run into our own dark recesses where no one else could find their way? What wrong seems more unrightable than the wrongs we commit against ourselves? Are we not all striving everyday to be better than yesterday? Do we not keep going for ourselves when most everyone else has walked away?

So where is the ‘unreachable star’?  Its inside of us. Its the Eternal connection between our own Spirit and the Divine. We think its unreachable because we feel disconnected and separate from the Divine. But we’re not, we never were. Our physical bodies have created weight which causes us to feel like we’re ‘down here’ and the Divine is ‘up there.’ But the truth is, we are still as connected as we ever were and when we realize this to the extent we allow ourselves to feel it in our bodies and spirits, then we have beaten the foe, laid down the sorrow, run through the dark recesses with courage, we have righted the unrightable wrong and we are our best selves. We have reached the unreachable star.
