#79 Ego Trip

I went on an ego trip and wrecked my car.

That’s right.

I was pushing it along a curvy mountain highway, zooming and swerving. Hard acceleration and braking; sudden turns. I was trying to get somewhere, although I currently can’t remember what was so important for me to attend. The engine was growling, the tires were squealing, the scenery was whizzing past my peripheral vision.

I ignored the first wisps of smoke from under the hood. The radio was blaring too loudly to hear the engine’s first complaints.

My right foot was begging for a much deeper floorboard as it punched quickly from gas to brake and back to gas. I no longer cared if I had side mirrors as nothing behind me mattered.

I pushed the car harder through the turns, hitting the apex at just the right moment.

Despite previous warnings, the engine, having reached the limit of what it could produce with what it was born to give, gave a loud squeal, followed the loud cries of grinding and crunching. The smoke burst from under the hood, obscuring my sight. My next turn came too quickly, I braked too late, slid through the apex. The guard rail, hidden by the bellowing smoke, introduced itself to the front of my car.

The crunching sounds of violent collision brought my hasty journey to a most rapid conclusion.

There I stood, admiring the wreckage. I’m far from home, yet far from my destination. Where was I going, I forgot? I’m sure it was somewhere I was needed.

I walk. No sense turning back, I’ve been there. No need to continue down the same road, I will be late.

I’ll go over the guard rail, off the road, through the woods.

Which way? There are no facts or evidence to guide a decision. I’ll just do what comes naturally. I will go where I’m led. I’ll follow my intuition.

Over hills, through the brush, around large rocks, through cold creeks. I plod along.

I’m met with birds, turtles, squirrels, and insects. The canopy overhead is punctured by a million rays of sunshine. They leave funny patterns on the ground. The woods are silent yet bristling with the sounds of activity. I make no decisions as to my direction; I simply go which way seems best. I let my internal dialog guide me.

Which way am I going? Where is my destination? How will I know when I arrive?

Meandering along, I just walk where it seems right. My travels take me through forests, over hills, across meadows, past cliffs, through streams.

I sit when I’m tired. I drink from cold streams; I eat berries and nuts. I have all I need.

I no longer care where I’m going. I don’t care if I ever get there. Wherever that may be.

But currently, I’m content.

I went on an ego trip, but I wrecked my car. Now I don’t even miss that car.
