Spiritual practices for UUs - Ask, before making decisions, "What would Love have me do?"

                                                       What would Love have me do?

UUs covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Where is this search to take place, and how is truth and meaning to be found? Applying this principle in one’s daily life takes consistent practice. One way of practicing this principle is to ask oneself whenever one is faced with a choice about how to respond during the course of one’s daily life, “What would Love have me do?”

At first implementing this practice takes a great deal of awareness, intention, and effort. With practice, the question guides our actions in a much more natural and flowing way. When learned, our lives become much more peaceful and joyful no matter the external stress.

This practice of asking “What would Love have me do?” brings us to a place of truth and meaning just as the principle intends.
