One Stage Before is simply another one of these Incredible songs from Al Stewart's masterpiece album, Year of the Cat...it is a song that deals with God's gift to us, of Deja Vu...the FEELING that you have Been Here Before, and thus, the Sensation that you are stuck, going around a Wheel, a Fractal, again and again and again...

The purpose of this gift from God to us of Deja Vu, is to encourage ourselves to get OFF the Wheel of the Samsara, and remember that we exist to LIVE HERE, in the NOW...the Present Moment, where we are in Alignment to God's Frequency, and thus, receiving His PRESENCE...and it is Here, that it may be said, that we have achieved Nirvana, by eliminating the Illusion of Linear time, and replacing it with God's Eternal Moment of Bliss, Joy and Happiness...

The One Stage Before, should become the Last Stage from the Past, so that you can Live Here in the Now...thus, Deja Vu is a powerful Gift from God to help the Prodigal Son, and/or Daughter, remember to return home and achieve AWARENESS in the Presence of God's Eternal Light...however, the Many have fallen so far, that most don't even receive a glimpse of Deja Vu in their lives, as they are so disconnected from God and the eternal promise of Redemption...it is only by Casting our Nets to the Right and TRYING to Discover God once more, that all of these Gifts come roaring back to us...
