Life At A Crossroads

Standing here at these crossroads,

I can see my life splits in two directions.

One direction leading me closer to my dreams.

The other direction brings me closer to my love.

The decision leaves me petrified and frozen,

I just stand there and stare down each route at this connection.

My body tries to split in two and travel both at once.

Yet alas, not in this life.

Life revolves around choice.

The kind of choices that keep you awake at night.

The kind of decisions that are made only once in a lifetime

Decisions that cause conflict

between the heart and the mind.

I’ve always preached following the heart

So why                                         am I still conflicted?

What if both paths are                               actually matters of the heart?

            How can one decide between                      two paths created out of love?

I suppose one side of the heart                                      must feel the draw

of love more strongly.

The heart knows before the mind.

I close my eyes and step forward.


Closing Quote:

“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.

The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.”

― Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life
