It makes room for LISTENING
It gives us freedom to OBSERVE
It allows time to THINK
It provides space in which to FEEL
It lets us broaden our AWARENESS
It opens us to the entry of PEACE

I've recently taken to driving without the radio on or a cd playing. We've all heard of highway hypnosis - where you are driving a familiar route, and all of a sudden find yourself at your destination, but you don't remember the exit off the freeway, or the right turn you took by the store, much less signalling for the turn. Somehow our brains are aware of the act of driving, but the mind is free to observe, think, feel, be aware and experience peace.
Today, consider turning off the radio and just drive. Look for the beauty right outside your window. Pay attention to the thoughts that may pop into you head. Experience the peace and joy that is there for you now.
