Brief Reminders in Response to You

Tithing and Giving

Give to what gives to you. Contribute time, money and energy where you are energized and fulfilled.
Feed the activities and associations that inspire, teach, heal and bless your life.
This can be a school, a church, a person, a cause, and definitely to yourself (ie vacation/retreat to renew your whole Self or a new car to stop worry about breakdown or air pollution or whatever brings you into your natural state of joy, love and peace.)
Giving to what drains, sucks, depletes, fatigues and depresses you only yields more of the same.
Pay attention to where you spend your money and where you give your thoughts. Let go of what no longer works for you.

Is It for You or for Others?

People who want to do something for themselves often try to convince others they are doing it for them.
This demonstrates their guilt about choosing for themselves.
Be honest about what you want.
Be honest about whether fear or love guide your path.
Trust whatever is truly best for you is always best for others.
Commitment must be made on the basis of what is Good for you. Otherwise it becomes duty /obligation.
I choose what is for the Highest Good and always include myself.
I listen to my doubts and fears only as an indicator of where I am being misled by my ego/separated self.
I choose for what brings happiness and peace.
Where there is conflict, I am not hearing the Voice of Spirit. So I ask and listen again.

EveryOne Is Equal

When we are living on purpose and sharing our gifts fully and freely, we are all perfectly playing our part on the stage of life.
When we are withholding, judging ourselves or doubting our worth, we limit, confuse and distort the part we play.
We often get stuck with a diminished role or identity. We see ourselves as being treated unfairly or less than equal.
To be free:
I forgive myself for limiting myself.
Letting go is fun, safe and easy.
I now easily recognize and release all the judgments and fears that have kept me from fully being present, alive, alert and enthusiastic in life.

We are all equal, no matter how we act, think or speak.

Loving you,
Betty Lue
