Recently I’ve been a car passenger quite often, and I’d like to use these periods of time to practise some kind of mindfulness or contemplation.
As it is, I tend to do one of two things: either (a) practise mindfulness of the motion of the car and its effects on my body, while trying to maintain awareness of my breathing; or (b) visualize a crash in which I die, using this as an opportunity to relax and be at ease with my own impermanence. I generally visualize this from my own perspective first, with all the accompanying sensations, and afterwards from a more objective overhead perspective, or as an onlooker would see it.
—Thanks for bearing with this!—
I’d like to know, do any of you practise similar (or different) exercises in the car, either as a passenger or while driving?
And for bonus points, please rate my morbidity on a scale from “one” to “concerning”
