2010 Honorable Closure

Honorable closure acknowledges:
1)   the learning and growth received,
2)   challenges and difficulties experienced,
3)   appreciation of gifts and blessings,
4)   forgiveness and amends made.

New Year’s eve is a valuable time to complete our relationship with this year.
This invites us to close the year with peace and Love.
Honorable closure lays this year to rest, with no carry-overs, so we can begin anew.
It is a way of ending every relationship and experience, so we can live at peace in the present moment.

While this year has had many challenges, it is most important to appreciate their learning value.
While 2010 was a year of difficulties for many folks, it also has taught us to appreciate what we have.
In the past year, we had an invitation to respond to others with kindness, compassion and generosity.
In our own lives, we are encouraged to simplify, to stay awake and responsible for our choices.

While it may have seemed extraordinarily challenging, I believe it was a blessing in disguise.
Let us use all that we have experienced for healing, learning and personal growth.
Take time today to stop and answer your own questions:

What have I learned this year?
What challenges have I faced?
What are the blessings I appreciate?
Have I forgiven my mistakes?

Life is a learning laboratory….a universe city…..which invites us to learn from everything!
What we learn, how we learn and how easily we learn, is our choice.
When we learn and practice, we grow in power and in peace.
When we appreciate our learning, we enhance our learning.

Life is a process of waking up for those who are willing.
Waking up means taking full responsibility for our life experiences.
For some life is a carnival ride, where we can choose the easy ones or the scary ones.
For some life is like surfing, looking for the big waves and seeing how well we can ride.
For those who choose to stay asleep, their lives can look like finding the lazy and comfortable way.
For those who choose to sleep in dreams of disaster and despair, they may feel victimized by life.

How are you viewing your life today?
Have you changed your life views over time?
Are you awakening and taking responsibility?
Are you helping others stay comfortable?
Do you protect others from learning their own lessons?

Let us use today to discover our own unique relationship with our own life.
Let us respond to what life brings with open-mindedness, willingness and appreciation.
Let us enjoy what we have created and release with gratitude what we have learned.
Let us celebrate another year, a graduation into our new year 2011 of new choices for Good.

Loving us all as we graduate to the new Year.

Invitation to those who wish to join me in reading and practicing lessons in A Course in Miracle this year.
Beginners and long time practitioners of the Course are invited.

A Course in Miracles was written for two psychologists who were looking for a “better way to live.”
It has been edited so the personal guidance specifically for them was removed.
It is not for everyone and resonates with only some who may feel connected to its message and format.

There is a text, a workbook with lessons for a year, and a teacher’s manual, plus some supplementary materials written later.
It is “inspired “or “channeled” writing or what I experience when I listen within.
Helen Schucman asked, listened within and she trusted what she was hearing enough to write it down.
I received the books in 1976 and have read, practiced and facilitated groups over 34 years.
I have worked with the workbook lessons 16 times or more and my favorite is the Teacher’s Manual which I read first.

My suggestion for beginners: 

Read the Last lesson and Epilogue at the end of the Workbook and Introduction to the Teacher’s Manual.  
If you resonate or desire to have this experience, I suggest you begin with one lesson a day in the Workbook.
Remember this is a Course in mind training or undoing your way of thinking.
It undoes our errant learned belief system to allow us to perceive our world differently.

If you want to join me and others via email, let me know and you will be included.

Everyone is welcome to work with the Course in their own way.
Everyone is welcome to comment, to ask and answer questions to be shared with others in the group.
Everyone is welcome to share their inner guidance when they sit and listen for the direction of HS.

This is a personal study, but may be enhanced by sharing your experiences with others.
Blessing us all as one, when we connect to heal, forgive, grow and inspire ourselves and others.

What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?

Fulfilling dreams?
Working to survive?
Making others happy?
Martyring yourself for another?
Paying off your Debts, Duties and Obligations?
Making amends for things you regret?
Trying to get back what you lost?
Serving Your community?
Saving the world?
Seeking the meaning of life?
Doing your best?
Letting go?
Resting and Enjoying?
Trusting and freeing yourself?
Keeping up with the “jones”?
Going nowhere fast?
Savoring the good stuff?
Striving for more?
Looking for the pot of gold?
Forgiving everyone everyday?
Going after the American dream?
Working to be rich and famous?
Making ends meet day by day?
Taking care of business?
Looking your best?
Keeping your body healthy?

So many goals and aspirations.
So many opportunities to choose from.
So many brass rings to reach for.
How do you choose and then what?

This New Year is really about becoming a chooser, rather than a loser.
We are stepping into an era of letting go of victimization and becoming at choice.
To choose, we must be aware of our choices and willing to be wholly responsible.
To let life happen to you, you must close your eyes and let the weather of life do its thing.

To be awake and enlightened requires that you recognize your own power, presence and place.
To be at choice requires that you be clear conscious and committed to your own cause.
To be successful asks that you unite with your own goals ( no doubts), be honest and self aware, always give your best (never lazy), committed to the highest and best for all (no quitting or making someone lose), and totally responsible for the outcome of your choices (learning from everything!).

I say YES to you and your willingness to create the life you want for yourself, your family and your world.
Loving You, 

Betty Lue

What Now, My Love?

Who do you Love?
What is your special Love?
How do you choose to enjoy each?
What makes your life worthwhile?

What we experience is our choice.
What happens to us, we have asked for (unconsciously, until we are clear and conscious choosers),
We are creating our own experience.
What we perceive comes from what we believe.

When we are filled with Love, we see only Love.
When we have cleared our fears, we see nothing to fear.
When we are loving all that is, we see only what we love.
When we are living the life we desire, we appreciate and increase the life we desire.

The work is to clear from our inner world what we are willing to undo and forgive.
The work is to forgive the past and trust that only what is beneficial and real will remain.
The work is to let go and let Good shine through the clouds of mistaken perception.
The work is to create Goodness, Beauty and Love by loving the Goodness and Beauty within.

Each one of us can choose everyday to release what we no longer need to think, say and do.
The gift of life is that each holy and healing instant is an opportunity to live the Love we are.
The gift in life is to undo our attachment to what has been taught and what we have believed.
When we release our investment in the past and the world’s teachings, we behold a world of Love.

When all of us together live in Love, thinking, speaking and acting as Love, we will know only Love.
You are I are pioneers in the process of healing, clearing the way and giving ourselves to this Holy Work.
We are the ones who are awake and willing to do what is the purpose of our living here.
Extending Peace, living in Love and giving with Joy…..this is our Holy Purpose.

Robert and I are about to pick up the three Alameda grandchildren (Harper and Lila (5 yrs) and Beckett (4Yrs) and then the Petaluma girls (Gia (12 yrs.) and Sofi (5 yrs.) for three days at the Lake House.  Will be challenging, fun and a grand adventure to all.  Send lots of energy to Robert and I and enjoy the vicarious pleasure of games, crafts, nature hikes and  who knows what else!

You are all precious to me, just as every child is.  Since we are all really kids, learning how to live in this world, let us trust  with innocence and listen within for the guidance that is always there waiting for us.
I so value my time with you each morning, since we all our One.
Yes, I am talking to you as a part of me, because the Oneness we share is setting us free to be.

Joyous New Year 2011.  To us all!
Betty Lue

Return to Innocence

I began on Christmas Eve to sit with simple breathing, A Course in Miracles and personal inner listening.
This practice began in 1977 and has waned in the last several years of caring for grandchildren at some distance so needed to leave home by 3:30AM for several years.
I have changed my schedule the last few months, so now can take the time to sit at 5-6AM once again.
What I notice is that after studying ACIM workbook lessons for 16-17 years and relating to the materials in groups and other teaching and writing tools, I once again hear them, feel them and know them even more profoundly.

So very good to return to what is truly a great support for my spiritual path and calling!
I encourage you to return to what deeply inspires you and resonates in your heart and mind!
I invite you to join me in a daily practice using whatever resources and practice is right for you.
I support you in doing what lifts your mind to greater awareness of inner Truth.
I appreciate your willingness to listen within for your own personal inner guidance.

I invite those who want to begin ACIM lessons daily beginning Jan. 1, 2011 to join me.

Let me know and we can be partners in this return to this path of forgiveness, love and holy relationships.
I am inspired by being accountable to a group of people and will commit to sharing with you.
Yes, let me know if you would join me on email or perhaps in person occasionally.

Where we are joined, there is greater awareness and accountability.
Where we are joined, we can share the deepening of our awareness.
Where we are joined, we may experience increased willingness to listen within.
Where we are joined, we can enhance our miracle readiness and right perceptions.

My focus in this coming year is to Sanctify my Life.
That is to make everything Holy.
My classes and groups will focus on clearing away the detours, distractions, delays, disappointments and delusions which all interfere with natural Innocence and Holiness.
This feels absolutely essential as we enter 2011-Creating Heaven.

Each of us is solely response- able for changing our minds and our lives.
We each need a road map and navigation system we can use to find our way.
The beginning is the goal: 

Where are we going?
What are we going to do when we get there?

I know I am here to use all that I have and all I am to create Heaven on Earth for all.
I know I am to be fully present and In Love with everyone all the time.
I know I am here to express the Joy I feel when I trust in Goodness and God.
I know my work is to clear the fear, so that I can live as a teacher of innocence.

Take time to listen within during this winter time.
Seek solitude and silence to rediscover your inner truth.
Experience the release of the past and enjoyment of the present.
Trust your higher Self to guide you through the coming year.

Loving you,  

Betty Lue

The Week After Christmas 
T’was the week after Christmas and all through the land

Things were all settled, it was all pretty bland.
The gifts put away, the sales all complete
Settled down by the tube in my favorite seat.
I had my awareness written down in my book
Had my insights, ideas and whatever it took.
The spiritual lessons had been easy to share
They were all filed away (I’m not really sure where).
When deep down inside me there arose such a clatter
It was really unfair. Now what was the matter?
Away from my chair I flew like a flash
I looked in the mirror and then came the crash.
My life was unsettled with nothing the same
And the worst of it all—there was no one to blame.
When what to my wondering eye should appear
But a glowing white light, from behind my left ear.
With a little old angel so lively and quick
I’d seen him before. I was going to be sick.
More rapid than eagles his pronouncements they came
And he whistled and shouted and called me some names.
“More action and faith and tolerance and trust
Now listen within and be responsible, you must.
To topple complacency and breach the fear wall
Now dash away, smash away, drop away all.”
As leaves caught up in a hurricane fly
All of my thoughts were thrown up to the sky.
And as they were jumbled and tumbled and swirled
I knew when they landed, it would be a new world.
And then in a twinkling, I felt it all start
The seeds of awareness awakening my heart.
As I came to my senses (picked myself off the floor)
I saw in my mind’s eye, a picture of more.
A world bathed in light, from the south to the north
With every one on it aware of his worth.
No one was waiting for others to do,
Or to fix or to heal or to make it all new.
Their eyes how they twinkled, their dimples how merry
When they each played their part, the world was easy to carry.
The smile on each mouth was drawn up like a bow
Shining laughter and love wherever they’d go.
The aura of kindness bespoke inner peace
Letting each individual experience release.
Oh the bright shiny faces, wherever you’d look
It seemed—to be willing was all that it took.
To start with ourselves, from deep down inside
To give our true gifts, not to withhold or hide.
With no blame, shame or guilt for our seeming mistakes,
A little forgiveness is all that it takes.
To clean up our world from inside to out
It was simple and happy and I wanted to shout.
Once I see the Christ presence in each person’s face
We all become one, with no distance or space.
I recalled in that moment just what my gift was
To love all of my brothers, with no “why” or “because”.
And I’m here to exclaim as I set myself free
I remember the truth—It all starts with me.

New Beginnings

When we carry the past into the future, we are merely repeating our old perceptions.
When we forgive our old perceptions and are willing to see what is, we behold with new eyes.
Forgiveness is the gift of clearing our past perceptions.
Forgiveness sees a world new, filled with hope and faith and love.

What have we experienced that we cannot bless?
What have we experienced that still holds fear?
Who have we discarded with remaining ill will?
How have we lived that we feel lasting guilt?

These moments in what no longer exists, except in our memory, hold us hostage.
Where we have not released the lingering garbage of the past, we feel sickened and despairing.
When we will not choose to undo what we have held with false beliefs, we limit our faith.
The ways in which we are imprisoned in lack and limitation by our past deny us true prosperity.

To see the light of day, we must open the curtains of our consciousness.
To free ourselves from the prison walls of despair, we must use the key of forgiveness.
To suspend the life term of unhappiness and fears of failure, we must release our self made punishment.
To undo what was never really true, we must believe again in being new with each holy moment.

To bring the Light, we must believe in the Light within and wash the windows of our soul.
To share the Love, we must Love the One We Are with all our heart and mind and soul.
To live in Peace, we must offer Peace to everyone, but most especially to ourselves.
To create the Good, we must see and know the Goodness within our own Kingdom.

I am loving you and me as One entity, One Holy Essence, One Place of Sanctuary and Hope.
I am serving Us, the Unity of all Humanity and the Harmony of All Creation.
I am enjoying the Joining in Songs of Praise and Thanksgiving, the real reason for our living.
I am co-creating Heaven on Earth in me and in you and in All as we forgive our miscreations.

And this we do together…..because we Love.
This we see together….because we are the Light.
This we know together….because we seek only Truth.
This we celebrate together….because we appreciate One Another.

Loving you and me and all as One,
Betty Lue

Christmas Reminders

Do You remember Who You Are?
Have You awakened to the Love in You?
Do You realize this is the Birth of Love in all of us?
Can we celebrate the coming of the Light as One?

The Light will come….Not just for some, but for everyone.

When we all remember, we will ascend in Love.
When we all wake up, we will all rejoice.
When we all answer the call, we will all be at home.
When we all join as One, we will all know Heaven.

What is enlightenment, but the removing the thoughts of separation, inequality and fear?

I celebrate you.
You are the Gift of Christmas.
Yes, I love you.
I see you as the Goodness Beauty and Love You Are.

May this day and everyday awaken you to the Love within.
As you live in Love and give with Love, may you realize You Are the Love!
Betty Lue

The Gift You Are

You are the gift.
In your healing, I am healed.
In your smiling, I find joy.
In your learning, I am filled with wisdom.
In your free expressions, I am empowered.
In your abundance, I too prosper.
In your spontaneity, I am set free.
In your joy, I know heaven.

And so it is that you give your Self to me
And I receive you with love and gratitude.
I am the gift I give to You
And I fully receive the gift I freely give.

As I know You, I know my Self.
As I give to you, I receive all good.
As I support you, I am supported by the Universe.
As I honor and respect you, I experience gratitude in all my being.
As I love you, I am loving all of God's creation.

I know you and believe in you.
I honor, respect and support you in being.
In you and me is all the Universe.
We are gifts to one another.

Real Gifts

Too often the Real Gift of Christmas is forgotten.
Long ago Love can into this world with so much Light, the world could never forget.
And so it is with each child born into our world, the Light has come.
It is with our gentle loving reminders that we reawaken to Love within each and every One.

How can we remember everyday?
How can we shine our Light so bright that the world never again forgets?
What can we give that our gift is recognized as the remembrance of our essential Goodness and Godness?
Can we forgive quickly and easily our forgetfulness and attachment to the ways of the world?

It is true, there was a gift of Love so bright born into this tiny child.
Yes, there were many who knew and were amazed and celebrated.
Likewise, there were those who were afraid and tried to eliminate this Great Light.
Now it is time, we remember and awaken the sleeping ones to bring this Love forth.

Just a this Christ child was born so many years ago, we still have the opportunity to know.
The Love in us is still there waiting to be born anew.
We can shine the Light of Love on each and everyone.
We can awaken this Love with giving fully to all God’s Sons.

Each one has within us that spark of Love inside,
waiting to be nurtured and not laid aside.
Each child born whether in poverty or wealth,
has Love shining in them offering happiness and health.

Now it the time, to love the child within.
Here is the moment, we each can begin.
Give Love a chance, starting first with yourself.
Then spread love freely to everyone on earth.

Take some time today to stop and pray.
Give Love a chance for all those you judge.
Give Love the power to shine the clouds away.
Give Love by sharing gratitude and joy.

Let us give our gifts of wrapped presents, gifts of service and words of praise.
Let us share our affections and spending special time.
Let us remember the happy memories and blessings through our lives.
Let us open our hearts and our homes to all who would enter in.

We welcome the Christ Light into our lives.
Let us forgive our forgetting and our fear.
Let us open our hearts to love and let our minds clear.
Let us bring the Light and Love of Goodness and Beauty today.

Loving you in every way,
Betty Lue

Sharing prayerful and Loving thoughts for Gentle and Loving Holidays (Holy Days) for you and your loved ones and every One!

The Night Before Christmas
T'was the night before Christmas and all through the earth
Was the light of love shining, a holy new birth.
Forgiveness completed, all judgments aside,
My conscience was clear with no hint of pride.
My worries behind me (I'd put them to bed)
While visions so heavenly danced in my head.
The job and the family, all routine, a snap.
Unaware, I was into a spiritual nap.
When out of the calm, there arose such a clatter.
My life was unsettled.  Now what was the matter.
Away from my habits I flew like a flash.
I threw off attachments, and then came the crash.
The feeling was alien, nothing the same.
I couldn't describe it or give it a name.
When what to my wondering eye should appear
But a blaze of white light, and coming so near, 
With a little old angel so lively and quick
I knew in a moment, I was going to be sick.
More rapid than eagles his values they came
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
"More honesty, tolerance, gentleness, trust,
Faithful and generous, with patience a must.
To topple defenses and breach the fear wall
Now dash away, smash away, drop away all."
As just as the leaves in a hurricane swirl,
Or a dancer will leap or will jump or will twirl,
So up in the air all the pieces they flew
And I felt when I looked, I'd see everything new.
And then in a twinkling, I felt with a start,
The growing and glowing, expanding my heart.
As I came to my senses and was turning around
I saw in the mirror an image profound.
He was bathed in bright light from his head to his toe
(His clothes were quite common so no one would know)
The weight of the world had just dropped from his back
And he danced like a peddler devoid of his pack.
He moved and he walked with a sense of great ease.
His lack of self-judgment made him easy to please.
The smile of his mouth was the shape of a bow,
It would light up a crowd wherever he'd go.
His relative silence bespoke inner peace
Letting all in his presence experience release.
He had a bright face and a happy, strong laugh
Which touches the heart, cuts resistance in half.
He was loving and kind, a right jolly old elf
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself.
A wink of his eye and a nod of his head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work.
He listened within (a somewhat strange quirk).
But touching his hand to the side of my face
We joined, became one, with no distance or space. 
I knew in that moment just what my gift was
To love all of my brothers, with no "why" or "because".
And I'm here to exclaim, as I grow in Love's light,
Merry Christmas to all, it will turn out all right.

The Blessing of Children

When we stop long enough to listen with our hearts, we can hear the sound of natural wonder.
When we can see with no judgment, we view only the beauty and delight in being alive.
When we honor the stories, the mistakes, the curiosity of children, we can learn from them.
When we give us trying to teach them our way, we understand that there are multiple ways.

When we are willing to be with children rather than hold them separate, we know their Love.
When we trust in their natural gifts of learning, we allow them to grow without interference.
When we love and appreciate each one’s uniqueness, we let them unfold to their natural beauty.
There is no need to change, correct or improve on anything, when we know they are whole and good.

Our grandchildren are with us for the next two days.
While providing crafts, games, spaces to explore and ways to be helpful, they can choose what they want.
Mostly we are non-interfering, so they have the experience of natural consequences.
When adults try to tell, demand, correct or need children how to behave, they learn best by our example.

Children help me refine my communication to be clear and direct.
Children demonstrate the value of curiosity and delight.
Children practice freedom of explorations.
Children trust easily until they learn to be cautious.
Children make friends with everyone unless they are taught fear.
Children are naturally helpful unless adults prefer everything done their way.
Children are generous givers until others take from them without respect.

Yes, they learn early from their peers and grownups and media.
Yes, they are easily influenced by experiences where they are judged.
Yes, children learn fear, criticism, comparison and anger from adults around them.
Yes, children learn to behave in ways that get them the results they want.

And also true, children can more easily undo their limiting habits or negative behaviors.
Children respond especially well to praise and love and positive attention.
Children are natural teachers, helpers, healers and seekers for Goodness in life.
Children are a gift when we are willing to see the blessings rather than the work.

Let’s love the little children….all the children of the world.
Celebrate Christmas with full appreciation for the children in your life and the child in you.
Loving you,  

Betty Lue

Your Best Gifts

What are the best gifts to give and receive?
How do you prefer to give to others?
What is you most appreciated gift to receive?
When do you receive more than you give?

Sometimes we are focused so much on the gift “thing” that we forget the underlying intention.
Sometimes we are expecting something in return and feel hurt when the gift we give is not appreciated.
Sometimes we recognize that our gift is what we value, but may not be what the recipient wants.
Sometimes we simply give out of duty and obligation rather than desire or heartfelt love.

Many years ago I experienced the confusion and insanity of this holiday.
I wanted to make a change from others needing to give to me if I gave something to them.
I wanted to be in integrity with what I feel inside about the act of giving.
I wanted to enjoy the beautiful light-filled magic and love of the season, rather than the commercialization.

So I chose in 1983 to let folks know I preferred to give and receive only love, not things.
I wrote special love notes to everyone, letting them know how much I valued them.
I created Christmas caroling in nursing homes and assisted living homes for small groups.
I opened my home to those who had no place to go for Christmas Dinner and family celebration.

It is thru that throughout the year Robert and I give to our family, friends and community everyday.
We listen both within and without for the needs that folks have as well as the joys that might inspire them.
We contribute over 50% of what we receive to giving to others.
We also recognize that each gift given is given to God and to ourselves.

Our joy is in the giving of time, energy, resources, inspiration, education, retreats and centers.

We love to share our appreciation and respect for those we encounter out in the world.
We value hugs and smiles and meaningful words shared in writing and in speech.
We encourage and support visions, hopes and dreams being actualized.
We celebrate with songs, fellowship, potlucks, drumming, rituals and traditions.
We welcome everyone to join us when we gather, regardless of their ability to contribute (pay).
Everyone is contributing through gratitude, love and participation.  We open our hearts and our doors to serve those in need.

Some of the best gifts are not things purchased!

They are memories shared of the beautiful experiences in life.
They are the love exchanged effortlessly when we touch and smile.
They are remembering the Goodness and Delight, even in times of darkness and sorrow.
They are spending quality time with others to let them know how important they are.
They are acts of service that make a difference in someone’s life.
They are words that inspire and affirm and let others know they are valued and loved.
They are sharing trips, vacations, special moments with others.
They are trusting others by sharing in prayer and sacred rituals and traditions.
They are listening with your heart and not your head.

Listen within for what is the best gift of love you can give to each one you know this year.
It may be surprising how short your list to purchase things for others!

Loving you and always remembering,
Betty Lue

Life is for giving.
You are the Gift.
It is in giving the Gift of Your Self
That you remember the Gift You are

Are You Aware?

Winter Solstice is sometimes call the Victory of Light over Darkness.
This time of year is the season of Giving from the heart.
Christmas is often seen as the birth or rebirth of the Christ consciousness within us.
Yes, it is the remembrance of One who came from the most humble beginnings to change the history of humanity.
This is the celebrated birthday of one who is remembered after over 2000 years as Holy Man, Son of God, and spiritual leader of billions of people over time.
Channukah, the story of the miracles of Light and more and more.
Many Holidays and many Holy Days, all to remind us to Love, to forgive, to heal, to grow, to be more of who we are here to be.

Would you recognize Him?
Would you invite Him to your holiday table?
Would you let Him in and give Him a hearty welcome into your home?
Would you know Him, the One who brought hot tomales to your Christmas feast?

He was not dressed in fancy clothes.
He came late after most had eaten and were now talking and eating dessert.
He seemed hesitant and shy.
He was alone and no one seemed to recognize him.
“Come in, come in”, I said.  Please help yourself and eat.”
I overheard someone say under their breath, ”A free meal, huh?”

Is it possible he is homeless and looking for food?
Is it possible that he was invited, but is unsure?
Could it be that he simply was guided to be with us?
How can we welcome him in to our church potluck?

This experience brought my attention to how often we ignore what we fear.
How many times do we step away from what we don’t understand?
How do we make up stories about what seems strange or foreign?
How many times are we too busy to notice the need to welcome a stranger into our midst?

This Holy Man brought homemade hot tamales to our feast.
This Holy Man was the husband of one of our folks.
This Holy Man came for the first time bringing a gift of Love for this Love-centered feast.
Like the Littlest Angel ( my favorite Christmas book), he brought his most treasured gifts.

Can we remember to welcome everyone to our table?
Can we recognize Love when it comes wrapped in a thermal bag to keep it warm?
Can receive the gifts of love even when given hesitantly, quietly and perhaps later than we think?
Can we be aware of everyone’s gifts of Love, no matter how they are wrapped or given?

Now it the time to awaken ourselves to everyone’s gifts.
Receive them all as the Love which inspired them.
Loving your gifts of Love to all you remember with Love,
Betty Lue

Love Is

Love is giving…….. without expectation.
Love is enjoying……….. with full appreciation.
Love is accepting……. without comparing.
Love is respecting……willing to see the Good in All.
Love is  peaceful……and extending peace to others.
Love is honest……speaking only the affirming Truth.
Love is gentle…..treating everyone as precious.
Love is kind……knowing all deserve the best.
Love is helpful…..respecting the abilities in others.
Love is nurturing…….encouraging healing and growth.
Love is nourishing…..filling the unmet needs for goodness and beauty.
Love is freedom…..allowing others to be what they need to grow.
Love is trusting…..opening the way for all to learn through natural consequences.

When we love, we feel connected and whole, peaceful and good.
When we forget to love, we feel separate and inadequate, fearful and unhappy.
When we love, we are remembering our reason for being.
When we forget, we feel lost and alone.

Where there are blocks to loving, we are called to heal with forgiveness.
When there is fear of love, we are called to forgive our past.
When there is unforgiveness, resentment or regret, there is a call to heal and return to love.
When there is lack of happiness, health and peace, love is the answer to all we really need.

In love, the answers come to our questions.
In love, we realize how perfect life truly is.
In love, we are at home wherever we are.
In love, all are our brothers and sisters.
In love, life works because we trust.
In love, we remember Who We Are.
In love, there is only equality and full appreciation.

Let us be IN LOVE,

Love is Letting Go of Fear

Love is forgiving all the ways we are afraid to love and be loved.
Divine Love is loving everyone equally.
Unconditional Love is without expectation or requirements to fulfill.
Spirit loves without a desire to “get” anything in return.

How do you see yourself “loving”?
If you are cautious, you will be careful about who you love and how you love.
If you are needy, you will love seeking approval or to get a return on your investment.
If you are defensive, you will protect yourself by waiting to love until you are loved.

When we love ourselves, we easily love others.
When we are filled with joy, we will naturally share our joy.
When we trust ourselves, we trust others in what they choose.
When we forgive ourselves, we can let go of mistakes and quickly love again.

Love is seeing beneath the surface to the best way to respond with love to those around us.
Love is realizing that everyone desires to love and be loved, but may have learned to be afraid.
Love is giving others the space they need to feel safe and trust the one giving them love.
Love is freeing others to live their lives as they choose without feeling rejected or afraid.

When we judge, compare, criticize, manipulate or try to change others, we interfere with Love.
When we have attacked others (even unconsciously), we usually fear being attacked or rejected.
When we know that under every relationship there is a deep and abiding Love, we relax and trust.
When we forgive all blocks to the awareness of the Presence of Love, we trust in Love.

Love has been defined by human emotions.
Human Love is often conditional, needy, fear-based and somewhat restrictive and demanding.
Spiritual Love is totally unconditional, abundant, trusting, freeing and accepting of others.
This Love may be felt emotionally or simply be a way of being and extending energy.

I often find Love defined only by what is seen on TV and in movies and books.
However the Love I speak of is Spiritual, Godly, divine and transcends human limitations.
Divine Love is healing and creative.
Divine Love is open-minded and appreciative.

If you think of anyone who has loved you unconditionally, without demands or expectations, you will know Spiritual Love.
Give yourself the opportunity to look for those people and times when you too have loved freely.
Perhaps children, or an admired person, or your pets have given you a glimpse of the power of love.

Letting go of fear is a key to Loving unconditionally.
“I forgive myself for limiting myself and my Love.”
“I forgive myself for being afraid to Love with trust and freedom.”
“I choose to love myself unconditionally.”

I am loving you and all is well.
Betty Lue


There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest
and most powerful being in the world.

Bless Your Home Sanctuary

Home is where you renew your Spirit.
Home is your safe haven from the busyness of life.
Home is the place you can rest, relax and remember your authentic self.
Home is what everyone needs to recharge and reinvest in living on purpose

When your home is all this and so much more, you will feel content and happy.
When your living environment truly supports your best self, you will be healthy.
When your home reflects your highest aspirations and the Goodness you are, you will feel nourished.
When your home truly is a gift to you, you will feel blessed to come home everyday.

Oops!  What if your home is none of these things?

What if you feel uncomfortable, unsafe and like you don’t belong at home?
Can you imagine how husband, children, pets, friends feel when they come into your home?
It may be time to create a space that truly is a safe haven and healing place for all who live there.

Creating this sacred space for yourself and your family requires three basic things:

1)    Clear the clutter.
2)    Provide more light.
3)    Surround yourself only with what you love.

Clearing the clutter is possibly the most important and difficult.

Rid yourself of anything that has not been useful in the last 6-12 months.
Take it to goodwill, put it in storage or simply throw it away.
Repair everything not in good shape.

Whatever you own, owns a piece of your energy.

When you have unfinished business, incomplete projects, stuff in poor condition or needing repair, we are constantly drained by the unconscious pull on us to do something.  Thus, no real rest. And often depression or constant irritation and anxiety.
When you have open space with everything complete, you can truly rest and have peace of mind.

More light reflects and inspires more joy, more opportunity to see with clear vision.

More light is inspiring and uplifting and energizing.
More light allows us to clear the darkness, despair and denial.
More light opens the way to clean up and finish whatever is not seen or unconscious.

Open the curtains, turn on all the lights in the room where you are and see the beauty there.

If there is none, it is time for the third basic.

When you are surrounded by beautiful loving things and memories, you will feel happy and safe.Make sure those with whom you share your home also have their rooms and spaces their way.
Fewer things that are just what inspires you is far better than many things you have to care for.
Remove those items which are sad reminders or for which you have negative or no feelings.

If you are interested in more practical Feng Shui tips, ask me,  I will send you a few of my notes from workshops I have taught over the years.
Loving you and wanting all of us to have safe, beautiful and inspiring homes.

Do you believe in Santa Claus?
Do you believe in giving?
Do you believe in being happy?
Do you believe in the birth of Jesus?
Do you believe in God?
Do you believe in Goodness?
Do you believe in healing and wholeness?

Take time this season to really contemplate and meditate on what you believe in.
Give yourself the opportunity to demonstrate and express your beliefs.
Immerse yourself in a change of mind and heart to support your beliefs.
Honor your inner Self, your Highest Self, by living your beliefs now.

Transformation with Fire or Grace

What do you need to change?
What keeps you from making the changes you want?
What holds you back from honoring your promises to yourself?
What motivates you to be honorable with yourself and your conscious choices?

Some need a fire lit under them.
Some use disaster as their wakeup call.
Some simply ask for help in making the change.
Some need a support team to be constant reminders.

Each one perceives life differently according to their history, beliefs and decisions.
Each one sets the imagined goal for their lives.
Some prefer comfort and sameness.
Some enjoy never-ending and constant improvement.
Some like the drama and use intense situations to make the changes needed.
And some simply gently evolve into the next place for them to be effortlessly.

Why not affirm that you too can change whatever you want easily, quickly and respectfully?
Why not affirm that you no longer need alarms and disaster to wakeup and choose again?
Why not be kind to yourself and give yourself the life you really want each and every day?
Why not begin with a change of attitude and believe your can do it?

Change, transformation, miracles, evolving, improvement all happen with our choice.
Choose what you believe and then erase your doubts and fears.
Clear the path to full realization with your own inner forgiveness.
Eliminate the trash talk, the nay-sayers, the fear of failure and give yourself the successes you really want.

You can have and be and do what you really want with all your heart and mind.
You can be all you are called to be with choice, commitment, and consistent effort.
Those who fail are those who have not cleared their inner field of vision.
When we acknowledge our own resistance, conscious and unconscious, we can forgive and choose again.

Each one of us can use whatever we are experiencing to motivate or depress us.
We can use life’s adventure to inspire us or discourage us.
We can celebrate all our choices, without judging them as failures.
We can be all we are here to be with a willingness to let go of the blocks and defenses we have built to our fulfillment.

Let us choose to use it all for Good.
Loving you,  

Betty Lue

Prayer from my heart today!

May we all awaken to what is real and true and loving.
May we each rejoice in what is Good for all.
May all creation know its beauty, Goodness and Love.
May each heart receive the blessings and extend them to others with Joy.
May we all embrace all life with full appreciation and open-mindedness.
In this, we shall know God  And so it is, all Good.

Natural Selection

Why do we try to change what is?
Why do we try to fix what we dislike?
Why do we not simply step away from what is toxic?
Why do we make wrong what is being expressed naturally?

If a creature is poisonous to humans, why not stay away?
If a food is unhealthy or produces an allergic reaction, how about not eating them?
If driving with distractions causes scary situations, why not drive with focused attention?
If living in unhealthy relationships with arguing and threats, why not step away?

It seems contrary to what is natural to continue doing what is hurtful or threatening to us.
It seems crazy to continually try to change what is, rather than simply choosing what works.
It seems like we spend so much energy judging, analyzing, criticizing and fixing, when we could simply forgive our choice and choose again for something that works for us.

Life is choice.
Some choices are mistaken.
Some choices are perfect.
Some choices are fun, safe and easy.

People seem to try to change and rearrange what is, rather than simply accepting what is.
When we see things as they are, we can easily choose how to relate to it.
To love ourselves is to make choices that are healthy for us.
To respect ourselves is to step away from anything toxic or hurtful to us.
To trust ourselves is to stop doing what we know is not good for us.

To respond with love is to let it be.
To respond with love is to allow life to unfold.
To respond with love is trust in the natural learning process.
To respond with love is to choose what is best for all concerned.

Guilt is ineffective.
When we feel guilt, we forgive ourselves and choose again.
When we use guilt to control or manipulate the behavior of another, we are reacting with fear.
When we stop allowing anyone or anything to control our choices, we easily choose a better way.

When we love ourselves, we are wise enough to step away from circumstances that are toxic.
When we love ourselves, we trust enough to let go of unhealthy or hurtful relationships.
When we love ourselves, we stop allowing others to control or manipulate our choices.
When we love ourselves, we pay attention and choose for what is truly good for all concerned.

Bless us all for being willing to choose wisely and with respect, trust and love.

Listening Within

On occasion, I am called to share my personal inner listening to Spirit within.

“ It is important to remember we are all children of the media-ized world.  To step away totally may be the right option for many who are convinced that the world mind be changed or re-arranged. Perhaps this is their calling—or just maybe it is time to transcend it all and lift ourselves out of the snare of mediocrity into a sanity that is pure and perfect love.

You see, there is a place where this world of dueling and comparative thinking does not exist.  It is a place where all minds and hearts come together in an expansive and yet simplistic view of what is Good for all. There is no call nor value for arguments or negative repudiation of anyone.  There is a truth where all possibilities are known. Those with self-destructive tendencies will step back into alignment with their Essence, when there is no one to fight and nothing to resist.  Consider the enemy, the so-called “evil”, to be the contradictions we have created in our own fear of Truth.  To fight against anything establishes its credibility.  To judge anyone is to confirm the substance and reality of wrong.  Perhaps it is time to simply say, “God Is.  The Blessings already are.”

So be the One and enjoy the Being.  The doing here is for pure enjoyment.  The loving here is not to fix, but to re-establish the awarenesss of the Kingdom of Good, here and now.  All is well.”

Please contemplate this if it has value to you. And simply let it go with blessings, if not.  Blessed be.
Loving you , 

Betty Lue


Origin of Inner Listening
In 1976 it was suggested I sit and do nothing for just five minutes daily by a spiritual mentor/teacher.  I chose 5AM in the morning and immediately saw/felt and heard a vision of a Home of Infinite Love available to all people.  Over the years,  I have co-created many such Centers and Homes with the guidance of Spirit within. The next morning I brought a pad of paper and a pen to sit, and as I was simply breathing, I knew words were coming into my mind and I wrote them down.  When I later read them, I saw they had great spiritual meaning.  As an innocent, trusting and ‘True Believer’, I then quieted myself every morning and began to follow what I heard within.  My life became fun, safe, easy and miraculous in so many ways.  I learned, forgave and grew spiritually daily from every relationships.  This is was the origin of what I call “inner listening” and have taught to hundreds of willing learners over the last 30 years.

The Origin of emailed Loving RemindersIn the winter of 1998, having just moved back to the Bay Area in California, I asked Spirit within what was my purpose and calling.  I was invited to sit at the computer and write down my daily inner listening and send it to those who requested it of me.  Since Dec, 1998 I have  sat at my keyboard, everyday to write exactly what Spirit within guides.  I do not edit, correct spelling and embellish what I hear.  I simply send what is given to me to share with the now thousands around the world.
This is my inner listening given to all who choose to receive them.  Often it gives people what they need, practical spiritual and inspiring reminders, so they need not spend money on  hours of therapy or endless seeking for spiritual answers.  They seem to awaken and remind individuals who are willing and ready to change their lives for the Good of All.  I also have put many of the reminders into three little books, Loving Reminders, Peaceful Reminders and Relationship Reminders.  There are two other books waiting to be published, Healing and Healthy Reminders.  It is my joy to contribute to the healing and awakening of my spiritual family, all humanity.

May be all be benefited and blessed by every good and kind intention of everyone everywhere.
Blessed be. Betty Lue  “True B’Lue”

Who Are You Serving?

Some serve themselves and become the best they can be.
Their happiness and inner peace benefits all.
Some serve their beloved and the one close to their heart.
Their harmonious and respectful relationships offer peace in our world.
Some serve their community and all of humanity, excluding none.
Their Goodness and Gratitude inspires all to be filled with hope and faith and Love.

Whomever you serve and However you serve must be noted as an act of Love.
When Love is given in any form to few, to yourself or to many, all are blessed.
Love is an energy that must be shared freely to be received by giver and receiver.
When service is measured or conditional (given and taken away), the giver is depleted.

To give love, to serve others, to love oneself, must be a full and free expression of trust and flow.
To give love is not to seek for anything in return, for Love is shared with all humanity as it flows to one.
When there is open-hearted service, the giver expands in consciousness and is blessed with happiness.
When there is a flow of trust and freedom, the Goodness of all Beings is amplified.

Therefore, today, right now, share your genuine Love with yourself, your loved ones and All the world.
Forgive and clear all blocks of judgment and separation, fear and lack.
I forgive myself for judging, condemning, giving up on any one of God creations of Love.
I love you and release you to your highest Good

When we allow ourselves to love with purity of mind and innocence of expression, we realize Love.
When we give ourselves the freedom to love and trust in Divine Outcome, we know Miracles of Love.
When we contribute only and always the best we have and the Love we are, we know a life of Love.
When we enjoy the inner peace and natural joy that comes from Loving, we are Love ItSelf.

And so it is this day, we give to one another.
And so it is this day, we appreciate Mother Earth and her magnificent creatures.
And so it is this day, we validate the value of every life, just as it is.
And so it is this day, we surrender our need to change, fix and correct anyone.

We are here to Love.
We are here to trust in Love.
We are here to return to Love.
We are here to express only Love.

With dignity and respect for all.
Betty Lue.

Season for Giving

Do you look forward to giving to others?
Do you withhold from others?
Do you hold back on sharing your love?
Do you forget to express gratitude?
Do you neglect to greet others warmly?
Are you too busy to really listen with your heart?
Can you still light up and smile at your loved ones?
Do you give others the appreciation you feel?

We are reminded daily at the power of our kindness.
We have the opportunity at holidays and birthdays to give.
We are reminded by the media to give gifts, things as symbols of our love.
We are asked to spend time, energy and money to buy stuff for others.

It seems to matter not what really has value or meaning, as long as we give.
It seems we are tempted to spend more if we love more.
Or we need to keep up with what we receive from others in our spending.
There may be a competition to see how many gifts are received or under the tree.

What if all this is meaningless and what is really needed it to communicate our love.
About 30 years ago, I chose to stop the Christmas spending and give what really matters.
I wrote a note to everyone who had been accustomed to receiving gifts from me and explained.
From now on I will be giving what really seems important, my love, appreciation and helpfulness.

I also asked to no longer receive gifts.
For me others’ acts of service feel like the most profound statement of Love.
Therefore, I request that others give to what serves others.
Do for others, volunteer, make someone happy and feel cherished.

For those who have need and the children in my life, I give what is valuable throughout the year.
For the holidays, my gifts are my loving kindness, availability, Christmas caroling for those alone or working in the nursing homes, holiday meals, and necessities as gifts for those with limited funds, and our Community Frist Project is launched tomorrow as an outreach to our communities homeless, vets and those with financial hardship.  There are even more this year needing our help.

How about reaching out and bringing joy to families or individuals in need?
How about saying how much you love and appreciate those in your own family?
How about putting together a tribute to someone with pictures or written notes?
How about cooking the favorite foods or playing special music or simply enjoying a family game?
How about watching a classic movie and holding hands?
How about taking a hike in the hills or a drive in the country?
How about making some phone calls to those you want to thank or catch up with them?
How about baking your special cake or cookies and sharing with your neighbors?
How about being especially kind and appreciative at the local stores and on the highways?
How about taking time to meditate, listen to good music and bring yourself inner peace?

These are a few of the simply loving acts of kindness, gratitude and inspiration that cost nothing.
I trust you to experiment and know exactly what is true giving for you.
Where there is sacrifice, there is a cost that is not good for giver or receiver.
Give from the fullness of your heart, and you will know the true Gift of Giving.

Loving you and all with All I have and All I AM,
Betty Lue

Unconditional Love Heals

Perfect Love heals.
Total Trust brings Peace.
Peace is our natural state.
To erase all fear is the path to wholeness of mind, body and Spirit.

Ho’ oponopono
 a simply path of erasing all obstacles to the awareness of Love’s Presence.
Ho’ oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian tool for reconciliation and forgiveness.
It literally means to “make right” with your ancestors and those with whom you have relationship.
It can be used for your body, the earth, yourself, those you don’t know, everything you see as broken or out of alignment with you.

I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
I thank you

I am sorry for judging.
I am sorry for forgetting Love.
I am sorry for neglecting and misusing you.
I am sorry I have lost my way.

Please forgive me and help me forgive myself.
Please allow me to erase the past and begin again.
Please let go of any harm I may have caused you.
Please be willing to accept my Love, now and always.

I love you and honor you.
I love you and want you to be free.
I love you and support your happiness.
I love you and know you are whole.

I thank you for being my wake up call.
I thank you for being my healing reminder.
I thank you for helping me realize what I had forgotten.
I thank you for being willing to forgive me and love me, too.

We all make mistakes.
We all get caught in false beliefs.
We all do stupid and unconscious things.
We all get lost in worldly business and nonsense.

When we can return to love, we remember our holiness and wholenss.
When we can forgive and be forgiven, we step into right thought, right speech and right action.
When we can stay clear, conscious and committed, we are whole and happy and free ourselves.
When we can remember to Love, we have inner peace and all fear and anxiety disappear.

Stop trying.
Simply choose.
Allow Love to heal the past.
Let Love reveal the Good in you and in All That Is.

Loving us all, as we remember, 

Betty Lue

Found at

Ho'oponopono means to make right. Essentially, it means to make it right with the ancestors, or to make right with the people with whom you have relationships.
We believe that the original purpose of Ho'oponopono was to correct the wrongs that had occurred in someone's life including Hala (to miss the thing aimed for, or to err, to disobey)
and Hewa (to go overboard or to do something to excess) which were illusions, and even 'Ino (to do harm, implying to do harm to someone with hate in mind), even if accidental.
This description is by no means a complete training in how to do Ho'oponopono.
While appropriate to do for yourself, for yours and others safety, it should not be done with someone else without training.

For example, let's say your five-year-old grandson punched another five-year-old intentionally with hate in mind.
If asked, then the one who was punched would forgive the other immediately, because it is inappropriate for anyone to carry guilt any longer than they had to, if it were not necessary.

We call this the Hawaiian Code of Forgiveness, and it's an important thought, because when we forgive others, who are we forgiving? Ourselves, of course.

If you are familiar with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), there is a saying, "People are only doing the best they can with the resources they have available."
If you've heard that before, it has to do with forgiveness. Think about it. As you do consider that you are included in "people."

In the Eastern traditions, too, there is a real tradition of being aligned with and cleaning up relations with the ancestors.
In Japan, China, as well as the Hawaiian tradition, it is thought to be important to align and clean up any past problems that you've had in relationships, especially with relatives.

At the same time, perhaps there are family patterns you do not want. Certainly you have heard the saying, "We just don't do that in our family," or "That's the way it is in our family."
What happens then, is that certain generational themes get passed along in families, like sadness or any number of different traits.
Ho'oponopono will allow you to clean this up.

THEORY: We carry inside us as parts of the Unconscious Mind, all the significant people in our lives. (These parts of us often look very much like Carl Jung's archetypes.) Ho'oponopono makes it "all right" with them. The process of Ho'oponopono is to align with and clean up our genealogy as well as to clean up our relationships with other people in our lives.

The Process of Ho'oponopono:
Bring to mind anyone with whom you do not feel total alignment or support, etc.
In your mind's eye, construct a small stage below you
Imagine an infinite source of love and healing flowing from a source above the top of your head (from your Higher Self), and open up the top of your head, and let the source of love and healing flow down inside your body, fill up the body, and overflow out your heart to heal up the person on the stage. Be sure it is all right for you to heal the person and that they accept the healing.
When the healing is complete, have a discussion with the person and forgive them, and have them forgive you.
Next, let go of the person, and see them floating away. As they do, cut the cord that connects the two of you (if appropriate). If you are healing in a current primary relationship, then assimilate the person inside you.
Do this with every person in your life with whom you are incomplete, or not aligned.
The final test is, can you see the person or think of them without feeling any negative emotions. If you do feel negative emotions when you do, then do the process again.
