    Hi all, this is supposed to be about the best experience since starting program, but this is an ongoing change.

    All my time driving in the car has been spent listening to music for.....hmm...30 years. However, after beginning mindful meditation I wanted it quiet. I am driving with myself for company, and really enjoying having fewer distractions. I drive 40 minutes each way at least 3 days a week to work. I wouldn't have thought this was possible. I am not mindful the whole time, but I am comfortable with myself and whatever comes up, it is really amazing.

    This is really something for me, and I am very surprised, and happy!

    Hi Lizzy,
    I think this is wonderful.
    How nice it is to notice that we are comfortable being us! I think this is a powerful change, and observation.

    Hi, Lizzy. It's wonderful that you don't need music anymore while driving.
    Were you listening to pop music or rock and roll, or classical?
    I prefer classical. Pop and rock are too much on my nerves.

    Thanks Andy, I am feeling good about progress right now. I have had a couple days where what I was doing was uncomfortable emotionally, and both times I was ok with my foot acting up. It didn't stop it hurting, but that was ok! It hadn't been bothering me for a few months and it didn't worry me, :)

    Walt, I listen to Christian pop, rock and some heavy stuff if I can understand the words. The words help me be positive .Music helps my mood. My daughter loves classical, but she hasn't hooked me!!
