Who Drives My Bus

The situation here is not unlike a bus in
which different
passengers are constantly
competing and scheming to take over control

of the driver's seat, and when they do, they
take the whole bus and all
the other pasengers
on their trip. For example, someone makes a

contemptuous remark to us: this is the cue for
a hated or worthless
image to take over the
driver's position. Egos at every level of

consciousness go on the trip of rage or rejection,
directed at the
other and/or at self. The heart
beats violently, the cells shiver in
fear, the other
is perceived as mean or stupid, etc,; and whatever
the bus was on before is, of course, completely
disrupted while all
systems go on this detour.
