The Gift of Being a Passenger







Watching the sun and textured clouds prance across the early evening sky, dark silhouetted trees struck unique poses in the fading light, exquisite reminders that this is the gift of being a passenger in a car. Perhaps more essential, this is the gift of being a passenger witnessing the drama of one's inner life unfolding. Through the continuous shifts of muted mindscapes to brilliant moments of awareness and back to silvered light again, we begin to recognize the postures we have chosen and the ones that have chosen us.
