How to Lead With Love

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

You know, recently I was reminded of a

simple but powerful practice, the practice

of asking the question, what would love

do in times of decision or challenge?

So just consider for a moment the

kinds of things that we often ask

ourselves in those kinds of moments,

the moments when we're reactive,

stressed, confused or troubled.

So in those moments, we

often ask ourselves questions

like, What should I do?

What's going to happen if?

Why is this happening to me?

Why did they do that?

And so these kinds of questions

often actually just trigger us.

They stimulate worry, overwhelm

or feelings of disempowerment

or disconnection with others.

But by changing the questions we ask

ourselves in those moments of choice,

we can actually completely change

our focus and, and our response.

So by asking ourselves a question

like, What would love do.

In all of those important moments of our

lives, we really call forth a strength,

the wisdom, and the love that's inherent

in the deeper nature of who we really are.

It's a way of kind of calling our

whole self to the moment so that we can

respond with awareness and kindness.

Now asking ourselves this question could

dramatically alter not only how we feel

in that moment, but how we perceive

the situation and how we respond to

the people and circumstances around us.

And we'd be, we'd be more able

to lead with love in all the

various dimensions of our lives.

So this week, I invite you to

experiment with this really

simple but powerful inquiry.

See if you can remember to keep asking

yourself what would love do as you

interact with the people at work, at

home, the strangers on the streets, and

especially how you relate to yourself.

You know when you look in the mirror,

when you make a mistake, when you're

distressed and tired, just keep

asking yourself what would love do.

And you might not get immediate

answers to your question all

the time, and that's okay.

Just see if you can be willing

to just kind of hang out in

this inquiry and patiently and

curiously, just see what arises.

So as always, thank you for your

practice and your presence here with us.

And just inviting you now to

settle in for today's meditation.
