I love to pull over into the slow lane on a multiple lane highway. Why? You might ask. Well the good news is, it is not out of fear or lack of driving talent. I simply love to slow down to the tempo that feels good for me, which usually is slower than most other hurried cars. Now don’t get me wrong, I have to be somewhere too, but funny enough I always get to my destination in time, even though I slow down.
But there is more I love about slowing down…
Driving (or any way of travelling, big or small) represents life to me. In both, driving and life, you have a starting point and a destination. And in the middle you have this amazing journey, that is packed with adventures, feelings, people, animals, nature and all you choose it to be. And the only way to see it all, is in a slower pace.
So when I hop in the car, I usually leave an amazing starting point and I am usually excited about an amazing destination. But mostly I am excited about this adventurous drive (even if it is the same route over and over), that has so much “new” in store for me. Slowing down lets me consciously see everything that IS for me. And I find that there is always something that catches my feelings and teaches me more about myself.
For me, slowing down is like changing to my magic channel!
I invite you to try this:
Slow down, no matter if in a car, on a bike or on foot. Breathe and feel yourself! Detach from everyone’s hurrying and let all hurrying pass beside you. Breathe and feel yourself! Now see and feel all this amazing-ness that IS for you, right now and here! Feel this! That is your magic channel!
Enjoy your amazing journey, while blessing your starting point and absolute knowing that you get to your destination on time, and in your most joyous way, because you slowed down.
