"Can you follow directions–can you really follow directions?"

Biltmore Estate forest

It wasn't so much a question, repetition and tone suggested gentle insistence.  I hesitated before responding because I know something about myself–

Sometimes I think…

I'm smarter than the directions….

or that my instinct is better…

or the directions couldn't really be right, could they?

I'll make a decision based on feelings or perception or, worse, arrogance (ouch).   

"Y-e-e-e-s," I faltered, my inner Honesty Police betraying a lack of conviction.

"If you will trust me, if you'll do exactly what I tell you to do, you won't have any problems."
