Be Mindful

Follow your path.

If you want to make progress on the path

and ascend to the places you have longed for,

the important thing is not to think much but to love much,

and so to do whatever awakens you to love.

– St Teresa of Avila

Sometimes it takes a few times for me to “get it.” This quote has come to me multiple times in the past six months. A friend. An unrelated friend in a different state. An email. A card. A blog post. A poster on a wall. An article in a magazine.

Yet I continue to lament and wonder and worry myself about making decisions and making choices. How to decide? What to do? What do you do when there is no clear path?

Well, duh.

Do whatever awakens you to love.

Universe, thank you for the repetition. It can take me a little while to catch on.

So if I were my own best friend I would remind myself to pay attention to things when they keep coming up in your life. Maybe it’s a quote that has crossed your desk from many different sources. Perhaps three people you know (who do not know each other) all mentioned the same thing to you. Pay attention. Sometimes the universe is trying to help you out and you simply need to step back, pause and listen.

Do whatever awakens you to love.
