Making Choices

When we choose from fear, our choices are limited.  
When we choose from trust, our choices are infinite.

When we choose what is Good for everyone, all win.
When we choose our way and being right, all lose.
Choices that are made from listening within and letting Love lead the way, everyone wins.
Choices made listening to opinions, beliefs and our own righteousness, no one wins.

It is a wise person who listens for creative inspiration in problem-solving.
It is a foolish person that keeps doing the same thing over and over and gets the same results.
When what we do is not working, we are on notice to stop and do something else
Stop talking, stop imagining, stop behaving in ways that are ineffective.

We get stuck with outdated and ineffective choices when we want to be right.
We get stuck with doing the same thing over and over, when we don’t know what else to do.
We stop being creative and responsive in the present, because we judge what we have done in the past.
When we forgive the past mistakes, limiting beliefs and faulty thinking, we can choose again without fear.

Creative solutions occur when we are open and willing.
Creative solutions come easily, when we see things differently.
Creative solutions are natural when we judge nothing and seek possibilities.
Creative solutions are generated from the higher wisdom within our authentic selves.

When we feel stuck, we are judging ourselves.
When we feel limited, we have believed the world of limitation.
When we feel lacking, we think what we have learned impoverished thinking.
When we feel little or less than others, we are buying into worldly comparison.

Only forgiving and undoing our thinking will set us free.
Only trusting in the power and presence of an unlimited Source can open the way.
Only allowing the world of limit, lack and littleness  to be incorrect will awaken us to a higher Truth.
Only by releasing the blocks of awareness to the Presence of Love can we see our real choices..

When we decide for Good for All, there is no limit.
When we decide for Love, there is the realization of perfect Trust.
When we decide for Happiness, our joy blesses our world.
When we decide for Peace, we bring peace to every mind.

Make decisions that benefit everyone and you will be blessed with Love, Happiness and Peace,
Loving you,
Betty Lue

When you have learned how to decide with God,  all decisions become as easy and as right as breathing. 
There is no effort, and you will be led  as gently as if you were being carried down a quiet path in summer.
A Course in Miracles T-14.IV.6:1-2

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.  
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.  
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy it all overnight.  
Build anyway.  

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  
Be happy anyway.  

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.  
Do good anyway.  

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.  

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  
It was never between you and them anyway.
