A Jarring Consciousness Shift

I was driving down the road, specifically engaged in wondering about why so much in my life seemed to have come to a standstill, why the spiritual sense of what I wanted my life to be did not seem to match what my outer reality was showing me, how I was frustrated, maybe even angry.

My thoughts were interrupted by a siren. An ambulance barrelled toward me then turned in front of me. A few moments later, a fire truck followed, sirens and lights blaring as well.

I thought hmmm, wherever that ambulance is headed, I bet they’re having a worse day than me.

That moment of shift away from my own spiritual angst, which was nothing more than the personality self having a pity party anyway, shifted my perspective. It was as if my soul was saying to my personality self “Get over yourself. It’s just what it is.”

It always is. It’s just what it is. I’m reminded to stop nagging myself into some sort of spiritual insanity by always wondering why. It doesn’t matter. And I don’t have an ambulance and fire truck coming to my house right now, so chill.
