May the Blessing Be - On the Road

Something happens to people while driving in rush hour traffic; everyone is looking at everyone else as an annoyance, or an adversary, often cursing and muttering as they drive. These negative thoughts do not stay in the car. They poison the "inner atmosphere" and cause thought pollution! Remember: thoughts carry energy. It is your choice if your thoughts carry the power and energy to uplift or destroy. No wonder it's so difficult to see beyond our problems--thought pollution is obstructing our vision! To help clean up the "atmosphere," practice this exercise for one minute the next time you stop at a traffic light. Bless every car that passes and say to them, with a feeling of compassion, "May the blessings be. Have a safe trip on the road today!"

Tim drove through traffic, swearing and wondering why everyone else was so stupid. "They never pay attention, they try to cut me off," he would mutter to himself, and his blood pressure would rise as he was driving.

One evening, he was out on a "first time date" with a woman named Gwen. Shocked by his fiery temper, she wondered if this was a danger signal alerting her to avoid this man. Gwen decided she'd give him a chance to respond differently.

She shared her "car blessing technique" with Tim, saying, "May the blessings be. Have a safe trip on the road today," to every passing vehicle. He thought this was ridiculous, but his strong attraction to Gwen influenced him to humor her and play along. They sat at each stop light, blessing cars, laughing together. A bus approached and Tim remarked, "I really hate those stinky buses; we don't have to bless them, do we?" "Absolutely," replied Gwen. Tim's temper gave a subtle flare, but he continued blessing cars and buses. He found it wasn't so difficult, because of Gwen's calming presence next to him. His personal atmosphere shifted, and Gwen felt her heart open.

By the time they arrived at the restaurant, he felt great and was thrilled that he didn't need his usual two martinis to feel relaxed. Tim continued dating Gwen, eventually married her, and found himself blessing cars even when he wasn't with her. Occasionally, he even shares this technique with other men and finds they are more open than he imagined. So, the next time you stop at a traffic light and see people who seem to be sending you a blessing, send it right back!
