Road Rage.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Hello Deepak, I’ve done most of the 21-day Meditation Challenges and I try to meditate at least once a day. I am a calm gentle person. But sometime, on the road, when someone is rude or insulting, out of nowhere and before thinking, I reply to them almost like in a rage… After, I think only of that and I don’t understand why I did that and where it came from. I’m a shame of myself when this happens. How can I defuse these momentary lapse of reason?



Interestingly enough, even in a study of people growing in higher states of consciousness, the experience of anger being triggered by driving incidents still arose frequently. So don’t feel too bad.

When you get upset when someone cuts you off, it usually means you are interpreting their actions as being dangerous and personally directed at you. Your emotional response is personal as well. As you become more self-aware, you will eventually notice that you make an early choice to interpret the situation that way. And once you have awareness of that moment, you realize you are free to choose a different interpretation that leaves you freer, happier, and safer.
