Row, Row, Row Your Boat.
Wow my eyes just were opened up to the meaning of the nursery rhyme that I’ve never thought before. I just randomly sang it today…"Row, row, row your boat,Gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream". BAM!! "Life is but a dream" it kicked in. Such a strong meaning and yet as a child you don’t really realize it. Its like watching a movie you haven’t seen since you were a kid and now you start noticing all the dirty adult humor that was incorporated in it.
The idea that I got from it was basically row your boat, or your body (vessel) down the stream, meaning life, and direct yourself merrily throughout because after all this is just a dream. Which I’ve heard time and time again that the "true reality" is what lies beyond this life.
Sure enough looking up the nursery rhyme with the help of Wikipedia, its meaning fit to what I had just discovered myself.
You may have already realized this for yourself, but this is the first time I actually realized the meaning of the nursery rhyme sung as a child and I figured I’d share how my eyes were opened.
