What Would Love Do?

What Would Love Do


The struggle to keep my heart open.

It’s been conditioned to close.

To self-preserve to stay safe.

To protect my energy.

I have told myself so many stories.

It’s not who I want to be.

But it’s so damn hard to change.

The ego is fighting me tooth and nail.

It doesn’t want to let go.

I know the truth, but yet the hardwiring in my brain is holding on for dear life.

Yet, here I am.

Doing the work.

Asking myself the hard questions.

Looking in the mirror.

In the thick of transformation.

It can be a little ugly.

It can be frustrating.

One step forward.

Two steps back.

But I am in the arena.

This question was proposed in Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book “Becoming Supernatural.”

“What would love do?”

A really simple question.

Would love close its heart?

Or remain open?

Would love embrace the unknown?

Or try to protect itself to stay safe?

Would love surrender to a greater mind?

Or would love continue to be misled by the ego?

What would love do?

Love would love.

That’s all love knows how to do.

To be love no matter what.

To accept what is.

To detach from needing anything to be a certain way to love.

As I sit here writing this I am truly humbled.

I have a deeper understanding of why people don’t change.

It is hard.

I have never thought of giving up.

But at times I get really frustrated.

I get down on myself because I get stuck in old patterns that don’t serve me.

But once again that is the ego.

I am hard on myself.

It’s not loving to me or anyone else.

I am going to take another step up that mountain of transformation.

I am going to take what I have learned and take another step forward.

What would love do?

It would love myself first and foremost no matter what.

Love would stay in the game.

Love would simply love.

That’s what I am going to choose to do, accepting my humanity, remembering I am divine.
