I live out in the country, and because of this, I drive a lot. Often several hours a day, heading into town and back to take my daughter to and from school.
Sometimes the drive is intensely difficult: pitch black, rainy or snowy, flooding by the river. Sometimes it’s gorgeous: light rising or falling to the east or west, nature shimmering in glory.
I used to get stressed when the weather was bad, and happy when it was nice. But now, I realize, the weather isn’t important. What really matters about the drive, is that it is a portal.
Driving is an activity that induces trance very easily: we hurtle through time and space encased in a small bubble, and in this way we move through other environments, energies, and vibrations quickly. Our mind is one place, and our body is another.
I now use my drive time as portal: I put forth the intention that I won’t just travel in earth reality in my drive, from point A to point B. But that I will also travel in etheric realm in my drive, from point A to point B: whatever the points are that the Universe would like me to visit, understand, or explore, I will visit them during the trance of the drive.
In this way, the drives have become nearly dreamlike: a sense of being so immersed in meditative thought, that I really can’t remember how I traveled on the earth.
Of course I’m watching the speed limit, paying attention to other traffic; all the real world driving is happening.
But underneath it’s all etheric journey. When I reach my destination I have received new information and new understanding.
