TRAVEL WITH AWARENESS
“…focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”
— Greg Anderson
Travelling brings me wonderful opportunities to build awareness. When I get into the car, for example, I set an intention to drive well and stay alert to what other drivers and pedestrians are doing. When I realize that my mind has drifted and I’ve slipped into autopilot, I gently bring my focus back to the present.
It’s also a time when I can pay attention to my reactions. Does irritation arise when someone drives too quickly or slowly, or when I get stopped by a yellow light? Being aware of the irritation gives me the opportunity to acknowledge and then release it. If I choose to, I can be at peace anywhere – even on the road!
“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”
— Eddie Cantor
