Zen and the Art of Collision Repair

A car is meant to be driven and as such it constantly exposed to a myriad of risk factors that over time accumulate and make it more and more likely that it will see the inside of an auto body repair Salt Lake City shop. Simply driving a car from point A to point B increases the chances that the car will get into an accident with another car. Moreover, the more a car is driven the more wear and tear its component parts will endure over time. All these factors accumulate to the point where it simply becomes inevitable that the car will find itself in the bay of an auto body repair shop. Even deciding not to drive a car and leaving it parked in the garage can be damaging to a car. So there really is no escaping it.

Once a car owner has resigned him or herself to the fact that the car they own will some day in all likelihood spend some time in an auto body Salt Lake City repair shop her or she will notice a certain ease of spirit descend upon them. 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. That being, that the car owner will suddenly realize that the collision repair shop is not really repairing the car so much as it repairs the car owner’s soul. When a car owner’s soul has been repaired then the car (which is really a metaphor for the car owner’s soul) becomes superfluous except as a mode of transportation which is all it ever was in the first place.
