“The frustration of traffic is a good metaphor for the frustration of modern life. We want to get somewhere…But it’s going too slow, and all these other people are in our way! If we wish to remain affected by traffic, or anything else, then that’s our choice. The day is hot, perhaps, and we have no air-conditioner, or the day is cold and we have no heater. We can think, Poor me. The drivers around us are acting nuts. We can think, These people are total jerks. We can think that way if we choose to, but we cannot diminish the power of our thoughts. Every thought of victimization or attack is an attack upon ourselves. When we think them, we are opening a door: enter stress, enter sickness, enter fear.”
Marianne Williamson, in “Everyday Grace”
