This ease of spirit arises from the acknowledgement that if an event is inevitable there is no use in worrying about it. When all of this needless worry is jettisoned from the car owner’s life once and for good he or she then becomes free to truly live life abiding fully in their true self.

Once this serene state is achieved a funny thing will happen.
