Letting Your Soul Walk You
I had an enlightening and humorous experience walking my dogs
this morning. It was a crisp, Spring day full of life and energy. My
four dogs seemed to feel it as well. Each one of them was
delightfully sniffing the air and bouncing around me as we walked.
Then as I was about to head back toward the house with them our
Saint Bernard, Buddy and our tiny Labrador mix, Pepper both decided
that it was the perfect time for a game of chase. Before I knew it
my legs were wrapped up tight with the dog leashes from these two
running in circles around me. Thankfully, I was able to drop the
leashes before I ended up on the ground. As I bent down to pick up
the leashes again, however, my tiniest dog, Julie decided to give me
a little help. She grabbed Buddy's leash in her mouth and headed for
the door. I looked on with laughter as my 10 pound Pekinese Poodle
walked our 160 pound Saint Bernard back home.
In addition to giving me a good laugh this sight also got me to
thinking. If a little dog like that can take the leash of a giant
sized one and lead him in the right direction then there is no
reason why all of us can't take the leash on our own lives and start
walking them on the path of love and joy again. Sure we may have
huge problems, large struggles, and massive difficulties in our
lives, but if we let that smart, little dog that is our soul take
the lead they will all fall behind us. That smart, little dog will
lead our hearts, minds, and lives right where they need to go. That
smart, little dog will lead us back home to joy, love, and God.
Let your soul lead you in the right direction then and all of
your life will follow you happily. Let your soul walk you down the
path of love, joy, and oneness with God and your journey home will
always be a delightful one even if you do get tangled in the leash
from time to time.
