I saw this chalk drawing in my neighborhood and I wondered how life would look if I let love lead the way. I usually let my head lead the way and it doesn't make for a very smooth or calm life.
I struggle to connect with my heart. I can rationalize and debate and figure out for hours- about anything- but ask me to drop into my heart center and I panic.
"I don't know how." I say.
"Give me the steps and I'll do them- where is the cheatsheet? I am Very Good at following directions. Where are the directions?"
Right now I can pause to consider the question "what if love led here?" when I am in the middle of something that causes my brain to seize up with judgements of how wrong and stupid and ridiculous the "other" is behaving.
I don't have to stop judging (and sometimes I really think people act ridiculous) but maybe I can also begin to see with a little more love. This also and probably most importantly means a little more love towards myself.
