Driving is my Meditation.

"Once you realize that the road is the goal and that you are always on the road, not to reach a goal, but to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom, life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple, in itself an ecstasy"  --Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

I love the open road. My bag packed, sun out and radio on.
My favourite place to spend time alone is driving long distances in my car.
I sing, dance, dream, plot, plan and concentrate on the road worrying about nothing other than staying under the speed limit and not getting too close to the car ahead of me.
There's no where I need to be, nothing I should be doing, just the constant moving forward to wherever I am going.

I wish more people felt this way about driving on highways and freeways. That not everyone was in such  a rush to get their destination. That no-one overtook on areas of road where there is no way to tell if something was coming the other way or not. That speeding wasn't so commonplace. That road rage was a much rarer occurrence. Basically, I wish that our roads were a happier/safer place in general. 

Next time you're off on a long haul road trip, create a playlist of songs that make you happiest, pack some snacks, and embrace the trip! Drive safely and stay alive :)

I love creating play list every time I go some where or just taking a mixed cd that I have.
