Fullest Moon of the Year!

Yes, I am in Kona, Hawaii, on retreat with a small group and will return on July 26th. I can be reached for phone consultation here. I have appts. Available when I return. Blessings of abundant peace and joy to you. May you be wise and guided by spirit in all your choices today. Betty Lue

“Be Grateful for the Abundance You Have” is the invitation today.
Let’s take some time today and everyday to give “Thanks!”
Let’s be aware that when we appreciate, we increase and expand.
In practicing gratitude, we are empowered, focused and directed to the Good.

What can you do to appreciate the beauty and goodness that is?
What can you do to let go of complaining, fixing and analyzing what isn’t?
What can you do to stop focusing on the mistakes, wrong-doing and neediness of others?
What can you do to give your attention, energy and resources to what you value?

You see, energy is energy, whether negative or positive.
Wherever you give your energy you are creating more of the same.
When you are splitting energy between complaints and blessings, you generate conflict and confusion.
Where we are focusing in two opposing directions, we leak or bleed energy into impotence and loss.

To clarify, focus and direct our energy to creating and sustaining Good for ourselves and others,
we must seek only the blessings, beauty and bountiful.
To live rich in thought, word and activity, we must give ourselves to Love and Peace and Happiness.
To give the Good we want to see in our world, we must erase, forgive and undo what is not.
To have All Good is to give All Good.

May the Blessings of Goodness abide in your life today.
May you think Good and Godly thoughts that inspire and uplift others.
May you speak Goodness and words of Good to All, including yourself.
May you behave in ways that bring only Good and all Good for everyone.

You see, you are creating with your vision.
You are creating with your words.
You are creating with the life you choose to live.
And when you forget, forgive quickly and easily.
And when you forgive, choose again for the Good.

This is the way of Love.
Loving you,
Betty Lue

If you would grow to be your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding
Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing & punishing

For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is tough as war
Yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies
But we open fully only to warmth & light
And our need to grow is fragile as a fragrance
Dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storms are still

So accept, respect,
Attend your sensitivity

A flower
Cannot be opened
With a hammer
