OM is Consolation

I live in South Florida and the traffic here is crazy. I have been living in South Florida for over twenty years; still, the traffic sometimes makes my heart skip a beat or stop for a moment. What people do on the roads is the stuff of a book or movie. In short, it is dangerous. So, with that said, I am glad I know about OM. At any time, I can pull over to a safe place on the side of the road or a parking lot and do some mindful breathing. I can slowly breathe in and mentalize OOO. I can then slowly breathe out and mentalize MMM. In just a few minutes, I am calm again. OM meditation is true consolation.
