The most important component

So basically, you have kept all the components of the car and taken off the steering wheel. And it is entirely possible that for a little while the car goes. But at some point in time when you need that turn, it’s not going to happen—and there is going to be a spectacular crash!

Because the speed of this vehicle is not determined by you. In the vehicle of existence, the speed of this vehicle is determined by time. You’re going at that speed. There are no brakes and there is no reverse gear.

And the most precious thing you have in this vehicle is not the accelerator—because you don’t want it to go faster. Time already goes way too fast. The only thing you’ve got is your steering wheel. Keep your eyes open and steer. That’s all you’ve got.
