Loss or Letting Go

Have you lost loved ones?
Have you lost memories?
Have you lost time and money?
Have you lost your way in life?
 Have you lost your innocence?
Have you lost you mind?
Have you lost your enthusiasm?
Have you lost your job or home?

Loss can be abrupt and traumatic.
Loss can be gradual and agonizing.
Loss can be scary and unwanted.
Loss can be gentle and kind.

When we are attached, loss hurts like hell.
When we are hanging on, loss can feel like being stolen.
When we are needy, loss can be frightening and unfair.
When we are not done, loss can feel incomplete and regretful.

When we learn to let go, we trust life will be full of change, letting go and loss.
When we see life as undoing, rather than doing, we release with our blessing.
When we understand that life is more than what is here, we can let go easily.
When we complete each day, each relationship, each moment with love, we appreciate the process.

How to Survive the Loss of a Love offers scores of ways to return to life.
If we knew that life goes on beyond the body, we might feel differently.
If we expected a change of season, change of homes, jobs and people, perhaps we could release with peace.
If we trusted that everything works together for Good, perhaps we would be free to trust is all.

If we realized that there is a season and a time for everything, we might be willing to release easily.
If we stopped viewing loss as having something taken from us, we might stop feeling victimized.
If we understood how we are participating in the world we see, we might respond with love.
If we were able to respond to all things with love, we might know only trust, freedom and gratitude.

Life is a circle with everything returning to the one, the place of unity and peace.
Life is a cycle of birth and death, endings and new beginnings, all merging into the Now.
When we live in the Now and have our being in Love, we live with appreciation for what is Now.
When we give the best we have in each moment, we feel fulfilled, happy and at Peace.

Give your best to everyone and everything in every moment.
Leave every person, job or life experience with no regret.
Be at peace with each day and life choice you make.
Trust that everything offers a gift and blessing when you open our hearts and minds to Love.

Loving you, 
Betty Lue

I will be patient with you.
I will have confidence in you.
I will stand by you in faith, and bless you in my prayers, knowing that you are growing, knowing that you are finding the help you need, the love you need, the healing you need, the financial freedom you need.
I have only good feelings in my heart about you.
I am willing to let you live your life as you see fit.
Your way may not be my way, but I will trust the Spirit of God in you to show you the way of your highest Good.
God loves you and I love you!
