Living and Growing

Growing is learning.
Learning is observing.
Observing is perceiving without judgment.
Challenging ourselves to learn and grow is the fully living.

When we find ourselves in our comfort zone, we are shutting down.
When we feel secure and lethargic, we are beginning to die.
When we choose to cocoon ourselves by collecting and protecting stuff, we are afraid.
When we stop exploring and being curious about life, we have lost the will to learn.

Every one is my teacher, so I listen and learn.
Every experience is a lesson, so I observe and I learn.
Every word I write and speak is my message, so I pay attention and I learn.
Every workshop taken or taught is for me, so I open my mind and I learn.

I have curiosity and wonder and delight about this world.
I see miracles and magic and mystery in life.
I know healing and feeling and wisdom with those I meet.
I experience complexity and uncertainty and chaos within humanity.

I know I cannot sort it out and organize.
I cannot understand and analyze.
I cannot fix it or make it work.
I can set it free and trust it all works to awaken.
I will find the Love beneath the apparency.

Everything is either Love or the call for Love.
I am Love with Wisdom.
I am Love with compassion.
I am Love with courage.
I am Love with Trust and Freedom.
This Love is Real and Unchanging.
This Love will prevail.
This Love will heal.
This Love seeks only to extend ItSelf.
This Love is fully giving.

I am the Love.
I am the Light.
You are the Love.
You are the Light.

Our real learning is to become aware of our blocks to Love.
Our real work is to clear all the obstacles within us to being the Love we Are.

Daily clearing with everyone,
Betty Lue

“Our Greatest Fear”

Our greatest fear
is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light,
not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
“Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us,
it is in everyone,
and as we let our own light shine
we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.
