Driving into work today, I had a thought. I saw the road as the course of my life, the car in which I was driving my body, and I was the essence. The lanes of the highway represented my current path in life, and the other cars on the road were obstacles or stresses in life.
Looking behind me, the cars were memories of things I had moved past and no longer worried or stressed about. Sometimes however those memories would catch up and I would have to take notice of them again.
The lane I chose to be in sometimes would contain an obstacle/stress (a car). Sometimes that stress would be further away, but never was the path clear. I often had a choice to either stay behind obstacles in my path or switch my path/lane and move around and pass those obstacles.
A few times the obstacle in front of me would be a large truck that would block sight of the path in front of me. During those times I would be forced to make a choice. I could be upset and annoyed or calm and wait for the chance to move around the obstacle. Sometimes changing my path/lane resulted in a clearer path, but sometimes the choice to switch lanes resulted in me going slower.
When the flow of my lane/path would move slower than I would have liked I had a choice to tense up and stress or relax and take a deep breath and just enjoy the ride realizing that eventually the obstacles in my path would eventually move again.
Anyway, it made the ride to work more interesting.
Any of you ever have similar thoughts about everyday life stuff?
