Could it be that these crazy, self serving drivers serve a positive purpose? Yeah, it seems that way. It turns out they are our teachers.
Teacher means "to bring out." What does a teacher bring out? In this case, your crazy driver teacher brings out a hidden rage that exists within you even when you're at a picnic or on a plane or in your car. What I am saying is that the rage is not caused by what's happening in traffic. The rage is already within you, waiting for an excuse to emerge. Those crazy drivers - your teachers - give you what seems to be a legitimate reason to bring it out and experience it.
Just take a second to think about this! If you carry around a hidden reservoir of anger that can negatively influence not only your driving experiences, but also your relationships, prosperity and peace of mind, is it best to ignore it? By that I mean let it burst forth at any opportunity without restraint. Or, would it be better to get rid of it? Get rid of it, of course!
Each time you refuse to give yourself over to road rage and look for the real reason for the anger, you drain your anger reservoir just a little. Eventually, two things will happen. You will stop expressing road rage because you are developing the habit of choosing another approach. Plus, your exploration of what's behind the road rage will start to reveal to you the things you need to address in your inner world. These will be the causes of your previously out of control rage.
What do you suppose happens when you run out of rage? Can you see that in this way, road rage serves to aid in your personal growth and adds to your ability to enjoy your life in spite of it all?
