If you want eternal life, you must trust the ways of the Timeless Heart. Don't be like Lot's wife in the Bible, who turned into a pillar of salt when she looked back at Sodom and Gomorrah burning. (Genesis 19:26)
Lots wife is esoteric symbology for not allowing your focus to get frozen in the dead past but to maintain focus on your aim, goal, and Self.
Therefore, stop looking over your shoulder and have faith in yourself as Source—Timeless Awareness.
