Well for some it is true that Life is Like a Car Crash. And that is unfortunate, because Life does not have to be that way. Yet living life by accident is the only option available to one who does not understand how life works.
Don’t you wish to expand your options? Well perhaps I am preaching to the choir here, because if you are reading my posts you probably are Expanding Your Options Now. That is what my teachings have to offer, expanded life options.
My wife had driven this very same loop at least ten times. This time I was letting her make the right turn herself. I was trying not to compensate for her over steering. We were creeping along so slow anyway. But when she was just about to hit the curb I shouted, “Shyni Stop!” And that is when she floored it!
Up the curb, quickly gaining speed, through the picket fence, heading straight for the solid cement corner of the garage, I thought, At this speed we will certainly plow right though into their living room. It was all happening in slow motion. I did not even have my seat belt on.
Then somehow, the car made a dramatic turn to the left, barely missing the garage, our lives seemed somehow to have been pulled out of some nightmare that should have happened but did not. Pedal to the floor, still gaining speed, we blew through the picket fence further down the garden. It flew across the street. At which point I reportedly slapped my wife on the back of the head and said, “The breaks, for God sakes the brakes Shyni!” I don’t really remember that part, but she did. Fortunately she found the breaks.
The house owners run out of their house and the wife said, “Is anybody hurt? What happened? Oh my God look at my garden. Look what she did to my garden!” And the husband said, “Honey, go into the house and call the police.” So the wife went inside to call the police. Thank God. Neighbors came out, the police came, by then all was worked out, details exchanged. Hysterical neighbor wife calmed down. We went home.
I never realized how dangerous it was teaching someone to drive. A simple slip of the foot, no built in automatic reaction; too much happened too quickly for either of us to think. We could have killed someone.
Now it would have been easy to blame my wife and shout at her. In the past I would have. It would have lasted for days, weeks, months or longer. But I’ve grown past that, and it took a lot of work too, but that is not the topic this time…
The reason this happened is because when the sh!t hit the fan my wife had no driving skills to fall back on. She was stuck. What happens when the sh!t hits the fan in your life? How do you react? How long does it take you to recover from the event? How much extra work or hardship did you make for yourself because of your reaction?
My wife has not even learned to ride a bike. So her skills of dexterity in motion have not been developed. The safest thing for her to do is to get her practice in a car with dual controls. And a lot of practice is what she needs. There is nothing wrong with her. She just needs practice to train her body. Then her automatic reactions will be the ones that will keep her safe behind the wheel.
And this is true about you and the other people in your life too. There is nothing wrong with you, you are not inherently broken. But unfortunately you have training that does not serve you. Perhaps it did at one point in your eternal life, but it does not serve you now. So you need new training and you need to practice your new skills.
Hey, I will make you a deal…I will provide the training if you will practice. So check out my blogs which offer the wisdom of the ages. There is a secret. Well it is not really a secret, but most people have disrespected and discounted this wisdom so much that it might as well be a secret. For as far back as there is recorded history in any civilization there are stories and teachings of masters who have passed down the secret to their mystical powers. These stories all tell the same secret and if you follow these time proven practices, you too will discover the secret in your very own life.
I hope you will join us on this fantastic journey of Self discovery and awakening. Don’t crash your life, it will just be more work to fix it up and get it running smoothly again. Be proactive, study, and practice. Take it from me, someone who knows from personal experience. Nothing you do with your life will benefit you more.
Love and Blessings,
P.S. My book Unforgettable: A Love and Spiritual Growth Story is not just an entertaining love story. It is also a book filled with time proven wisdom that teaches by real life example. This is a true story of powerful personal and spiritual transformation.
